Makeover Series with SheKnows: The Reveal

jeannine-morris-makeover-hostWorking with Jessica for SheKnows was a blast. She was so genuinely grateful for her makeover and was eager to learn how to pull herself together. In the consultation video, Candace Cameron Bure and I had her try on a variety of different silhouettes and styles to see what looked best on her body type and what she felt most comfortable in. In the end, she owned her look and exuded confidence. Exactly what we wanted to see! Check out video to see her makeover reveal and my honest thoughts.

Makeover Series with SheKnows: The Consultation


Over the summer I was in LA filming a bunch of projects and when SheKnows approached me about helping out with a makeover, I of course, jumped on board.

My 2nd E! Commercial for Dove

And here it is, the second commercial I shot this summer in LA for Dove that's currently airing on E!.  This time red carpet stylist, Micaela Erlanger (who's responsible for everything Lupita Nyong'o wears), joined Alicia Quarles and I.  As you can see, it was a really fun shoot day and great pleasure to work with these talented women.  Make sure you tune into the E! red carpet on Emmys night to see what Dove and I have in store!

And you know me, there's nothing in the world I'd rather do than work with a brand I've been using since I was a child (from beauty bars to body wash) and with an entertainment network providing insider access – straight from the red carpet!  It truly is the most perfect partnership and I couldn't be more grateful.

Beauty Tips for Brides & MOBs on BetterTV

Beauty-Tips-for-BridesHave I told you before that my mom and I are best friends?  You can def tell from this segment as we went on the BetterTV show together to talk Beauty Tips for Brides and Mothers of the Bride.  How fun right?  Check out the segment.  My mom knows her stuff! Also, I've include product recommendations below.  


  • Bride: To ensure you're glowing on the big day, you can do a series of peels at the spa, or incorporate an at-home version into your skincare regimen.

Try: Lierac High Peel Renewing Concentrate Intensive Peel

  • MOB: You too can incorporate a peel into your regimen, but you may be facing aging in different ways. Try using products mixed with technology for an added lift and tighten.

Try: NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Device


  • Bride & MOB: Whitening your teeth to the max only takes an hour and you can even do it as you’re prepping for the rehearsal dinner.

Try: Crest 3D White Whitestrips Luxe Supreme FlexFit


  • Bride & MOB: A wedding is always a good excuse to grow out your hair. Whether your leaving your hair down or Pinning updo’s, start taking supplements sooner than later. You’ll start seeing results in about three months.

Try: Hair Essentials

  • Bride & MOB: A wedding is your red carpet event, so go ahead and add some enhancement with clip in extensions. Hey, all the celebrities do. Make sure to bring them to your trial to get the full effect of how it will look on that day. While the bride always seek longer, thicker hair, the MOB can cut the extensions and just opt for a bit of fullness.

Try: Hair2Wear Christie Brinkley 16” Hair Extension


  • Bride & MOB: A self tan is a must to go with your glowing complexion, but make sure you use a mit to get the most even application.

Try: St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse


  • Bride: Bridal Fashion week just passed and showcased fun varieties in nails including a bit of texture and think blue. I’m even thinking about doing a blue pedicure as my something blue!


  • MOB: Stay classic. While the fashion forward tips are fun, sophisticated looks are your best bet. Stick with nudes and light pinks. French manicures are out.

Try: Butter London Sweet Somethings Set

So what do you think?  I hope you found these beauty tips for brides and MOBs fun and easy!  Remember, they're good for any big event, not just weddings.

Summer Beauty Secrets on CBS 'The Couch'

summer-beauty-secretsLast week on "The Couch" I chatted with Carolina Bermudez about Summer Beauty Secrets.  From sunscreen truths to clearing up the myth about what really happens when you use the sun to "clear acne," we talk about it all.  These summer beauty secrets are ones you've been wondering about.  Do you think your hair grows longer in the summer?  Ha.  Check out the segment below to find out! There is no such thing as a waterproof sunscreen.

The FDA doesn’t support the word “waterproof” at all so labeling can be misleading. Now, all labels should read “water resistant,” but even that reads as “waterproof” to people. The overall rule of thumb is to reapply your SPF every two hours throughout sun exposure, but if you’re in the water, reduce that time frame to every 40 minutes.

Try L'Oreal Advanced Suncare Silky Sheer Lotion SPF 30.

Wearing bright nail colors can make your nails turn yellow.

Most people think that only dark nail polish shades will make your nails turn yellow, however even bright, summer colors can do it. It can simply a reaction from wearing a strong pigment for too long or to the formaldehyde in the polish. To prevent it from happening, try giving your nails a polish break, or opting for a formaldehyde free polish. To rid the yellow, soak your yellow tips in lemon juice, which natural bleaching agent, for several minutes. Use a soft toothbrush dipped in lemon juice to gently scrub the yellow discoloration away. Follow up with cuticle oil.

I like Peter Thomas Roth Oilless Oil.

Your hair grows faster in the summer.

Show deep conditioners Honestly, this is still up for debate because the difference in hair growth is soooo small! It’s credited to more light exposure, naturally increased estrogen levels, and a better diet may help the overall health of your hair and scalp. So it’s a stretch, but does grow a bit more. To make sure your hair stays healthy throughout the summer, make sure to use a deep conditioner. It’ll help get you the most out of that extra millimeter!

Some good options are Aussie 3 Minute Miracle SmoothBiolage HYDRASOURCE Mask, and Dove Pure Care Dry Oil.

Tanning does not clear acne.

It’s all an illusion. What you’re seeing is the tan darkening the skin around pimples, which makes them stand out less. UV rays damage the skin, weakening the natural barrier and causing it to lose moisture. While at first this means your oily zones dry up, your skin tries to fix this by producing more and more of its own oils. So instead of preventing or lessening breakouts, sun exposure worsens the root of the problem. If you want to create that illusion, without damaging your skin, try a self tanner.

Try Caudalie Soleil Divin.

Shaving does not make your hair grow back thicker.

Shaving has absolutely no effect on hair growth or thickness. What you are more likely to be experiencing when you feel that familiar prickle as the hair begins to grow back, is the thicker part of the hair shaft. This is because the razor cuts the hair straight across the shaft, which is why stubble feels stiffer.

I like Venus Embrace Sensitive.

Well, I'm really excited to show you what we filmed!  I hosted Scents & Sense, DKNY's YouTube series dedicated to fragrance tips and tricks that's now live on their channel.  Check it out!

DIY Brown Sugar Scrub on Bethenny

Filming with Bethenny was a blast.  I was part of her big beauty segment, "How to Spring Clean Your Face," that aired today along with a dermatologist and esthetician from White Tea Med Spa and showed off how to make a simple, yet effective brown sugar scrub.  Check out the coverage on Bethenny and the recipe below. Brown Sugar Scrub


1/2 fresh lemon 1/2 cup brown sugar 1 tbsp of coconut oil


Lemon: a natural source of Vitamin C, commonly used to lighten the skin and even out its tone, also a natural astringent Coconut Oil: condition and moisturize skin Brown Sugar: a natural exfoliator that is softer than other sugars


1. You can heat the coconut oil until it's melted in a microwave, then stir in the sugar, mashing it up with your spoon. 2. Finally, squeeze the lemon on top and mix.
