Stefania's Beauty Minute

As women we are a mass of contradictions. We want to look amazing and want to be respected for our brains. Last week we asked powerhouse blogger, femme-preneur and mother of three, Stefania Pomponi to tell us a little about her beauty regimen. Little did we know she could write an entire book on the topic if she wanted to!


Here are her Beauty Favorites and her Daily Must Haves including her Favorite Drug Store Finds.

Don't forget to leave a comment and tell us your own favs! (Click on the collages to enlarge)

Other fun tips:

Urban Decay All-Nighter Makeup Setting Spray helps keep your finished makeup in place and looking fresh.

NYX Roll-on Shimmer: I mix this with lotion and rub on my legs when I wear dresses at night. Give them a bronze sheen that looks like you are wearing nylons but you’re not.

Ardell #110 false eyelashes are a staple of my night-time look. Very light and natural looking but still makes your eyes pop!

LIT Cosmetics Holograph Lit Kit (essentially glitter powder that you can use on eyes/face/body) is also a staple of my night-time look. It’s the very best glitter-shadow.
