BOTOX, LIP INJECTIONS, MICRONEEDLING, & MORE: DR. MCGILLIVRAY INTERVIEW

Beauty

Look at me all serious and interviewing!!!

Oh yes oh yes oh yessssss!

Skin care is my everything. And in this episode of Skinny Belle – The Podcast I interview the famous Dr. McGillivray, founder of Project Skin MD, on all things skin care.

This girl wants to be looking as-is until she is 90. (Not even joking in the slightest.) 😂

Things got really real with Dr. McGillivray and I asked all about botox, lip injections, microneedling, chemical peels, and basically everything under the sun. We also talked about Kylie Jenner and Bella Hadid and discussed what procedures they have/haven’t done.

This is definitely my favourite podcast episode yet. Dr. McGillivray is so informative, and I honestly learned so much interviewing him.

It was awesome.

My whole goal when doing this interview was to find out the TRUTH on different aesthetic medicine procedures (I feel like there is a lot of rumours and false truths out there.) I really dug deep to also find out which products/ingredients you guys need to be using NOW to keep your skin looking fresh.

If you are like me and are way too OCD obsessed with skin care (it’s a thing), you will definitely want to listen to this episode.

NATURAL GLAM TUTORIAL

Beauty

FINALLY!!! I filmed my favourite natural beauty glam 😊

Yes yes yes!!! I am sewwww happpehhhhh this is here. Took me a minute but girl finally filmed my classic Natural Beauty Glam tutorial.

I’ve worked with a number of makeup artists over my 9 year modeling career (literally, hundreds of them) and learned a thing or two in the process. So, it’s about time I share some of my best tips and tricks for glamming! 😁

Personally, I do love to try and use makeup to enhance my natural features, instead of cover them up and change how I look. That is why I am such a fan of this kind of glam! 💋 There’s a bunch of super useful tippity tips in this tutorial, so check it out and let me know what you think!

If you’re looking for the product list of everything I used in this video, I’ve linked it all on Skinny Belle Youtube below the tutorial.

This is one of my classic “Robyn” glams, that I do about 70% of the time. 😄 Hope you like the video! If you do, make sure you throw a thumbs up on that bad boy. 👍🏻

Hope you’re having a fab week! 💞

This is one of my favourite beauty videos and I am personally watching it 1000x to make sure I get all Jen’s pro-tips down.

100000000X!!!

Be patient, if you get through the whole thing you will honestly learn SO much. Jen is an unreal makeup artist and she shared so many of her best tips with us.

BUDGET BEAUTY HACKS

Beauty

Just posted on Youtube!

Hey everyone! It’s been kind of quiet here this week, eh. I took a bit of a break for Thanksgiving, and I’ve been traveling this week for family things from LA –> Illinois –> Wisconsin –> Illinois. Right now we are back in Chicago, and going to spend the next two days here.

Super stoked to explore Chicago, have never been before and I’ve heard fantastic things. Deep dish pizza is going to be in and around my mouth today. 😩🍕 I am going to look like that 5 year old kid eating an ice cream cone with half the cone just all over her face 😂 Can’t. Wait. 👌🏻

Anywho, while I am exploring Chicago today, I put together this video where I share my best budget beauty hacks. The most powerful one I share costs $0… Yeah. That’s right, $0.

The reason this video is so great is I am someone who does spend a significant chunk of money on high quality beauty products. That being said, if something is expensive just for the sake of being expensive… I won’t buy it. When I use budget friendly products, it is only because I truly believe that product does the best job.

So, check out Skinny Belle Youtube, if you like, subscribe and share! 💞

 

If you are strapped for time, I have linked all products mentioned below.

Product links:

Makeup remover wipes

Sephora Pore Cleaner

Mac Prep & Prime Fix+

Rimmel Clear Eyebrow Gel

Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

HOW TO PREP YOUR SKIN FOR MAKEUP

Beauty

This one is good guys. It’s PACKED with amaze-balls tips 🔮

Okay if you can’t tell from the cover of this vid, I am freaking STOKED on this tutorial! 😄

To do this video, I brought in my celebrity makeup artist friend Jen Tioseco. This girl, is big time. She is Patrick Ta’s main assistant, she’s worked on all the Kardashians, Gigi Hadid, Vanessa Hudgens, Sophia Ritchie…. basically all the celebs. ⭐️

Jen and I actually met on a photoshoot when I was 15 years old modeling. This year, we reconnected through a mutual friend after 10 years! It’s been so much fun doing glam with her and I knew I haddddddd to bring her on Skinny Belle and get her to share all her major PRO-TIPS with you.💅🏻💄💋

🔥PRO. TIPS. PEOPLE!🔥

Sound the alarm🚨, because this video is so valuable it will legit change your pre-makeup routine forever.

I promise you that.

It has definitely upped my makeup-prep routine. 🙌🏻

Highly recommend watching all the way through, we go over detailed steps on prepping your skin for makeup like a celebrity!

Here are the linked time marks to Youtube, and all the products + steps we go over in the vid:

1:53

1) Moisturize

ALWAYS, moisturize before foundation. Good skin care is KEY to having your makeup look good! We used the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream.

2:25

2) Facial Massage

Helps drain excessive fluid and puffiness out of the face. When you do a facial massage, always massage upwards and outwards, focusing on the contours of the face. This really helps those cheekbones pop and gives a nice brow lift! When you are finished massaging the face, massage the neck downs towards the heart to finishing draining all the fluid!

Ballin option – Orobar

Budget option – Get one like this on Amazon

3:20

3) Under Eye Cream

Helps the concealer + eyeshadow from creasing. Today we used the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream.

4:04

4) Lip Balm

Moisturize your lips at the beginning so they are not dry and gross by the time you get to painting them up 😉 I legit just used Vaseline lol.

4:20

5) Eye Jellies

Helps pick up any eyeshadow that drops down, firms, tones, and de-puffs. The SKYN Iceland brand makes the best ones in my opinion!

This routine, is GOLD! 💯 Seriously never not doing this again before I glam. It makes a world of difference.

Like this vid? Make sure you subscribe, give it a thumbs up, and share with your friends! After all, us gals gotta all look snatched together. 😉

HAIR GROWTH TREATMENT

Beauty

Skinny Belle (1 of 4)

Skinny Belle (3 of 4)-2

Skinny Belle (2 of 4)

Want your longer and thicker hair? Try Roots!

If you are a person who I have come into contact with sometime over that past month, there is a 98% chance that I have forcefully told you about this product. ROOTS. It is in my hair while I write this post. It is the best beauty product that has come into my life since… well…. my god I don’t even know. I CANT EVEN.

Okay let me slow down and start from the beginning. One weekend I was visiting a girlfriend in Los Gatos, California. It had been a few months since I had seen this friend, and last time I saw her she had a short bob haircut. When I saw her this time, her hair was long, wavy, and STUNNING. I was like HOW did this happen so quickly?! My hair grows insanely slow so naturally I was super impressed. She comes to tell me that she started using this miracle working product called “Roots” from Lush a few months ago, and has it to thank for her newly found beautiful long locks.

I basically ran home and bought out every bottle from the closest Lush to my house. (Wish I was kidding.) But this stuff really works. It has been about 3 months now that I have been using Roots, and my hair has grown significantly faster than normal and has more volume. When I went to see my hairdresser (who normally comments on how thin my hair is lol) he was SO impressed with how quickly it had grown.

How does it work?

You need to do the treatment 2 – 3 times a week.

Step 1: Section your hair into small parts and apply it RIGHT to the scalp. Not the hair, the scalp. Cover your entire head and massage it in.

Step 2: Let the treatment sit for a full 30 minutes. (They recommend 20 but I do 30 because I want to get the maximum benefit.)

Step 3: Shampoo and condition as normal.

I am a very results driven person, and this has shown me tangible results after just two months. But consistency is key here. If you just use Roots a few times sporadically, chances are it won’t work very well. It needs to happen twice a week before you shower (and you should not be washing your hair more than 3 times a week anyways.)

SO. Basically what I am saying is you need to try this product if you want your hair to grow faster. Trust me on this one, it works.

ENJOY!

UNDER EYE MASK

My fave anti-aging and smoothing eye mask by Sephora!

These little under-eye masks work wonders. My mom was over last time I used them, and after I took them off she literally said “oh my god those things actually work! All your wrinkles are gone!.” That sounds like some sort of terrible corporate ad or something but it’s true lol, she legit said that.

I love using these if I feel like my skin is tired and dry, because they really do perk your face right up. They are also great to use right before going out because you will look fresh AF.

You can pick these up for yourself at Sephora. They make a bunch of different kinds but my favourite is definitely the “Anti-Aging and Smoothing Orchid Eye Mask.” Each pair is $6, which considering the immediate results, is not bad at all.

Have you tried these before? Thoughts?? Comment below! <3

DEWY MAKEUP TRICK

Beauty

Skinny-Belle (1 of 1)-2

A simple way to get a beautiful dewy makeup look!

Meet my latest makeup obsession, MAC Prep + Prime Fix+. This stuff is the BEST. It will give you a beautiful dewy finish on your already fab makeup look. Plus, it helps hold your makeup in place and not get all creasy and crusty throughout the day. (Nasty.)

Ever feel like you finish powdering, bronzing, and countering and your face just looks SO dry? Well MAC’s Prep + Prime Fix+ will take that dry powdery look down a notch and make your skin look glowy, youthful, and dewy. Like I said, totally obsessed.

How do you use it?

Step 1: After you wash and moisturize your face, hold the spray a foot or so away from your face and give it a few light spritzes.

Step 2: Do your makeup like the bad bitch you are.

Step 3: After you finish your makeup, holding the Mac Prep + Prime Fix+ a foot away from your face, give it another two sprays and wait for it to dry.

And voila! Beautiful dewy skin.

This has honestly changed the makeup game for me. My skin is fairly dry so I frequently use this mid-day to add some extra moisture to my face and refresh it. Having a clean dewy face is the perfect look for summer, and is much more natural in my opinion. 😁

What do you guys think? Have you tried this yet? Comment below!
