Red Carpet Live: How I Get Glam for the Red Carpet!

Red Carpet Live: Get Glam Tips

Hola! It's great to be back in New York after covering the American Music Awards in Los Angeles. There were amazing moments and so many Latinos were representing! After one month and just under 10,000 miles I've gotten to know the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 very well. Here are my frequently used features: 

1. Camera 

Everywhere I went people would comment on the image quality that this camera captures. Furthermore, the ease in which you can take selfies is pretty cool: voice control shutter, tap of the heart rate monitor or just tap anywhere on the screen. For a larger crowd use the wide selfie option to get all of your friends in the pic. Want more detail? Use the rear camera to take a selfie. The Galaxy Note 4 helps guide you to frame your face and you are guided by a series of beeps to get a great shot. 

2. S-Pen 

From taking notes on any screen to getting autographs, the S-Pen is a cool tool that has helped me stay organized.

3. Fast-Charging Battery

The battery and charger work in unison to get this device to recharge up to 50% of the battery in just 30 minutes.

With the holidays fast approaching I want to share some of my favorite skincare items to get you glowing for those selfies and party pics! 

Skincare is always important. When you're taking photos you want to make sure your skin is bright and hydrated! To stop pimples in their tracks, I rely on Vanished by Clear Clinic Labs. It works under and over makeup and the travel-sized bottle makes it easy to take with you wherever you go.

I love a good facial, but sometimes there’s no time. Thats when I turn to the Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 to exfoliate dead, dull surface layers and also refine pore size and improve clarity. 

Whether on-camera or at a photo shoot, I make sure to pamper my skin.  I use the Talika Eye Therapy Patch to combat tired eyes

And before any big event, I use the Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Brightening Mask to get a boost of instant luminosity.

When it comes to fashion, I took some cues from the red carpets I've covered and incorporated the trends all while keeping cost in mind! 

For my special holiday theme OOTD I went with a fabulous emerald lace dress from Maggy London ($168, maggylondon.com). It was also seen on Orange is the New Black’s Selenis Leyna!

Tis the season for legwear! Here I'm wearing the new Hanes Silk Reflections Luxe Sheer Tight ($11, hanes.com) that are sheer and opaque enough to be right for so many occasions. I added some fun and affordable jewelry from Cookie Lee like this Sparkling Lights Bib Necklace, $36, and Shades of Glam Mood Ring, $20, available on www.cookielee.com. Finally, add a fab mani to complete the look!
