Jaime King at launch of new formula for Nouráge to benefit Locks of Love

 

Do you have a special connection to Locks of Love? If so what?

  • It was the perfect collaboration; I have been working with cancer charities forever
  • For me to do this event with Nouráge made perfect sense because I truly believe in the product and also because Locks of Love is donating money for kids
  • So little of the money for research for cancer actually goes towards children, so feel like anything that we can do to help children especially with this disease
  • Every one of us knows someone that has had it
  • It is really a priority for me to be involved in that

Is health and wellness important to you? If so what do you do on a daily basis to stay healthy? Are there any natural beauty practices that you swear by?

  • Wake up and take Nouráge because it is right by my nightstand
  • Drink a full glass of water because it is the most important thing for your hair and skin and for it to flush all the toxins out of your skin
  • Wash and exfoliate face –using either Le Prairie or La Mer serum on my face, or Alba Botanica or Herbology from London really great organic product
  •  Don’t wear makeup if I don’t have to

What are some of your favorite workouts? Why?

  • Mary Helen Bowers Ballet Beautiful because she was 15-minute beauty ballet blasts that you can do if you don’t have a lot of time
  • Love to hike and be outdoors
  • Just carrying around my kid for 3 blocks is a workout for 10 days
  • Really believe in finding what you love to do and makes you happy then you won’t feel like you have to schlep to the gym and find a machine
  • I really believe that you shouldn’t do something that makes you unhappy but it is really important that you are doing something that brings you joy so you don’t judge yourself when you don’t go to the gym

How do you balance work and motherhood?

  • Make my son a priority –I won’t go anywhere unless I can travel with him
  •  I don’t accept any jobs that won’t allow my son to be with me
  • Raised in the Midwest with a stay-at-home mom and that’s how I intend to raise my child, not to stay at home but if I do work, my son will be raised with his mother and he will come with me
  • I have a babysitter, so we always have someone watching over him when on set; but he is there with me all the time
  • My son gets to be in a very nurturing, creative, exciting environment where he gets to meet new people every day—because I shot until the day before I gave birth.
  • I didn’t have a child as an ornament; I had child because that is something that I wanted for my whole life
  • I went through a lot to have a baby; he is my number one priority; blessed if you put the intention out there with what you want in life, I do believe that it can come true and that’s how I came to where I am in my life so I do believe the same thing about balancing work and motherhood

What’s something that would surprise people about you?

  • It is very interesting growing up in Los Angeles and talking to nannies who say that you are just so hands on like it’s a bad thing; people aren’t use to me being so hands on
  • They’re used to seeing moms on the streets that likely leave their babies then come back; If I did that, I would never see my child because I shoot 16 hours a day

Besides Hart of Dixie, what’s next for you?

  • Getting ready to direct a campaign for Grace and Frame Denim
  • Still working on Hart of Dixie and just wrapped episodes last week
  • Traveling a lot

Tarte Away Oui Go Palette & Collector’s Set

tarte away our go outside

Love this time of year, is there anything more exciting than holiday palettes?  I am in love with Tarte’s Away Oui Go Collector’s Set & Portable Palette, its by far one of my favorite holiday collections from Tarte. This palette includes four removable eye and cheek palettes (which includes 16 full-sized Amazonian Clay Eye Shadows and four full sized Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blushes!), three deluxe sized Maracuja Lip Glosses, a Deluxe Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara, and a light blue collector’s compact, which you can insert the removable palettes into. It has a mirror inside and the outside has a tufted-stitch pattern with white pearls on it.

 

tarte away oui go inside

I love the four custom color palettes, gorgeous neutrals with lots of pigments perfect for any holiday look. I can’t decided which of the sets I like most and its so great I can switch them out to make an easy to-go makeup palette. I found all of the colors highly pigmented and with my eye shadow primer they stay put all day.

A $410 value!

The exclusive, limited-edition set includes:

  • 16 full size, French-inspired Amazonian Clay Eye Shadows (0.07 oz. each)
  • 4 full size Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blushes: Irresistible (soft melon), Envisioned (sheer coral), Limitless (peach rose), Intrigue (rose petal) (0.158 oz. each)
  • 3 deluxe Maracuja Lip Glosses: Paris (raspberry), Cannes (light pink), Nice (nude mauve) (0.06 fl. oz. each)
  • Deluxe Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara
  • Portable collector’s compact (0.14 oz.)

The tufted mini-palette is so cute, I was in love at first look. Each palette has a magnet to keep it in the main box the just pop it out with the ribbon and drop it into the portable compact.

The portable compact has a small mirror makes on the go touch-ups a snap.

The Away Oui Go Collection came with three deluxe size Maracuja Lip glosses. I love the three shades included, Paris is my favorite a beautiful raspberry creme it goes with every look. I’m not a huge fan of the applicator brush. I personally like soft wand tips better and found the bristles a bit stiff for application but the rest of the palette is so fantastic its easy to overlook my gloss wand issues.

A beautiful collection for yourself or as a gift. I think this palette is a great bang for your buck with very wearable colors and the portable palette is unique and so cute you won’t want to leave home without it!

Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum

super corrective

Kiehl’s Super Correct Eye-Opening Serum is a lightweight serum that hydrates my eye area while firming and lifting. The serum feels refreshing when I apply and absorbs instantly, I find it works great alone or under makeup. It has a slight sheen to it that makes my eyes look alert and awake.

I have started to notice more fine lines around my eyes and was really excited to try this. I have been using the serum for two weeks now and can’t stop raving to people about how well it works. The serum instantly plumps and smooths my skin and leaves it feeling fantastic. And in just two weeks use I am noticing the little wrinkles and fine lines around my eyes are softening. It has improved my whole eye area leaving my eyes looking more open and the skin smooth.
