Summer is all about bronzed glowing skin and while some of you are probably starting to enjoy all of Spring's niceties, it's never too early to rock this stunning hue like a true diva. If you watched the recent Billboard Music Awards, bronze makeup was the clear-cut choice amongst stars from J Lo to Zendaya to Rita Ora to Chrissy Teigen (who by the way appeared so uncomfortable and drunk while hosting, don't you think so?).  Applied correctly, it elevates your makeup game from simple to glam.

I admit to have fallen off the fitness wagon for few weeks. Work and personal matters left no room for zilla to sweat. Count the sweet tooth binge, I am not liking what I'm seeing. It's not that I'm too hard-pressed to possess an enviable body but let me tell you, it's not me to be a couch potato. I have always been active but there are moments when I'm not feeling the treadmill, let alone dance hip-hop, which by the way is my #1 exercise routine.

With mammoth of a hair, I'm telling you right now that it takes a village to style my hair. Okay that's totally pun but seriously, my day-to-day 'do is pretty much laid-back, either pony tail or barrette bun (tutorial here). Now that doesn't mean I'm a gadget snob because I have quite a stash, enough to convert my woman cave to a demi- hair salon. The latest to grace my fancy-nation? say hello to T3 Twirl 360!

Morning Rush Makeup Don't #BeautyTalk

morning rush, beauty talk, makeup when you're rushing, kat von d tattoo liner trooper, makeup tips, how to cat eyes, graphic eyes

I'm really enjoying our #BeautyTalk from time to time because it's more virtually engaging and interactive. Plus it's Friday so I'm totally on chill mode already. This leads me to my next question, is there a certain makeup routine or technique that you try not to do when you're pressed for time? OhMy, don't get me started with those crooked cat eyes, haha!

Blame coffee hands and morning rush! While I sorta mastered the trick to easy flick (tutorial here), I'm telling you right now that there are days zilla can't get it right. You start with ultra- thin line, then it gets thicker and bam! panda, anyone?

Faux lashes not fo-me. Yeah, it's another thing I won't attempt to tinker even if I have extra five minutes to spare. Crooked cat eyes and flimsy falsies? mama look at zillakilla!

So why don't I wake up early if I strive for makeup perfection? Nah, I'm not going to trade my soft pillows for dramatic eyes. Yes, I snooze, I loose. But girl, those extra five minutes are precious!

What say you? chime in!
