“My skin is bright which is a huge change for me and with the help of their miracle masque this is easily the least amount of breakouts I have ever seen since pre-middle school. SCORE! I can’t thank Enza enough for helping me manage my skincare during this time – the line far exceeded my expectations and my family has been commenting on that “glow”. It’s no glow, it’s just really maticulous skincare!” -Megan Quint from the Quint Essentials, read her full review here!

This blogging beauty is OBSESSED with the Saturation Aloe Scrub! “This product is the BOMB.com, seriously, I would use it everyday if I could. It truly smoothes and brightens my complexion, while soothing it all at the same time, it’s like bathing your face in an oatmeal bath. I use this product at the end of the day twice a week and it is like therapy, maybe it is all the fatty acids and vitamins, but whatever it is, it works, and my skin is loving it!

CELEBRITY SKIN ENVY: ANNA KENDRICK

CA: PREMIERE OF "WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN EXPECTING"

If I could be BFFs with any celebrity in Hollywood right now, Anna Kendrick would definitely make her way to the top of my list. She’s ridiculously funny, has an amazing fashion sense, loves to have a good time with other celeb pals, and has some of the most beautiful skin I’ve ever seen.

MTI2NTcyMzEwMTM1MTYyODkw

Anna’s complexion is actually flawless. She can pull off virtually any color of shadow, lipstick, or blush, and still look like she just stepped off the Red Carpet. Everything compliments her skin tone, and I mean EVERYTHING. By the way, did you see how gorge she looked at the Oscars this past Sunday night? Check out Anna’s style and my other fave beauty looks from the night here!

MTIzMDQ5NjY0NjkyNDU0OTI0

My favorite part about the Into The Woods star is that she doesn’t need to wear a lot of makeup to look beautiful. Her skin tone is so even and smooth – which I’m completely envious of – that she only needs a light foundation and a little blush to look super glam. I read that Anna washes and tones her skin every single day to keep it soft and bright. Plus, she must drink a gallon of water a day to have skin that hydrated.

rs_634x1024-150218144348-634-anna-kendrick0skin

Have you also noticed that she doesn’t have a SINGLE sign of any sun damage? She must lather up with SPF every day. I also read that Anna hates the smell of a typical sunscreen – that’s exactly why Enza Essentials Advanced Protection SPF 30 is the perfect sun protection product! It protects your skin from harsh UV rays while smelling like a yummy moisturizer. It’s a win-win!

Anna, we love you. And your skin. Now follow me on Twitter and Insta? @EnzaPRGirl! -xo Kayla

THINK SPRING: SKIN

I know it’s a little early to say this, but spring is just around the corner and I am so excited! Between the weather, clothing, colors, flowers, and everything else, I’m definitely thinking spring. The blooming season is also a good time to make sure your skin care is in spring mode as well – here’s how:

Say ‘goodbye’ to dead skin.

ZDS_1026

Exfoliating is SO important to do all year ’round, but spring is the perfect time to get in the habit of doing so once or twice a week. The winter makes skin super dry and flaky, leaving behind dead cells all over your skin. And who doesn’t want to start out a new season on a freshly exfoliated face? I LOVE using my Fine Facial Polish twice a week – it makes my complexion so much brighter and my foundation goes on smoother.

Spring clean.

ZDS_1019

Speaking of foundation, when was the last time you cleaned your makeup brushes?? These beauty tools carry around dirt, dust, and LOTS of bacteria – ICK! It’s a great idea to give all of your brushes a good clean before spring gets here. Jane Iredale makes a fabulous Botanical Brush Cleaner that works on all makeup brushes – both synthetic and natural – and, it smells intoxicating.

Remember ALL areas.

ZDS_1023

Warmer weather calls for more exposed skin, so always remember to apply products not only to your face, but to your neck and chest as well. Enza Essentials Vitamin C Serum  is amazing at rejuvenating neglected areas, as it helps repair signs of aging, dark spots, and overall dry and dull skin.

Protect yourself.

ZDS_1038

You guys, it’s almost time for the sun to come out! If you were slacking all winter at wearing SPF (that DOES NOT make me happy), then use the season of spring as a reason to get back in the habit of applying it every day. I never leave the house without lathering on my Advanced Protection SPF 30 – it’s the most important part of my anti-aging regimen!

Stick to a schedule.

ZDS_1041

When it comes to skin care, consistency is key. That’s why when you update your skin care routine from winter to spring, make sure you stick with it. Cleansing, toning, and moisturizing your face morning and night is one of the best habits you can get in to. Seriously.

Give lips some TLC.

ZDS_1032

Spring means bright, bold, and fun lip colors, so get your pout ready by keeping lips hydrated at all times. Winter causes them to become dry and flaky, so make sure to moisturize them with a good Lip Treatment.

How are you getting ready for spring? -xo Kayla

BEST BEAUTY LOOKS: OSCARS 2015

The biggest, most glamorous event aired last night – the 87th Annual Academy Awards. Although the award show itself is a little on the boring side, the Red Carpet certainly made up for it! Between iridescent white gowns, blush hues, and dark lips, the celebs looked AMAZING. It was hard to decide on my favorite looks of the night, but after careful consideration and some serious beauty analyzing, I’ve narrowed it down to my top 5:

Anna Kendrick.

anna-kendrick-oscars-2015-academy-awards1

Oh. My. Goodness. What a perfect human being she is! This coral gown compliments her fair skin tone and I’m loving her diamond accessories. Anna’s shimmery smokey eye and black liner make her blue eyes pop, while the rosy pink blush on her cheeks tie the entire look together. Her skin is a 10 – this light foundation look really lets her skin show off just how smooth and radiant it truly is.

Margot Robbie.

rs_634x1024-150222200804-634.Margot-Robbie-Academy-Awards-Brauty.ms.022215

This Focus star was definitely the focus on the Red Carpet last night! Margot stunned in this sleeved black gown and statement tassel necklace. Her bold red pout stood out among the crowd, pairing perfectly with her black lashes and defined cheekbones. And is it even possible to have skin that flawless? There is not a single dark spot in sight. To help fade any brown spots you might have, try using Enza’s Vitamin C Serum to brighten your complexion and improve collagen synthesis.

Kerry Washington.

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Hello, date-night beauty inspiration! Kerry looked so chic in this strapless gown and sleek, flowing hair. I’m obsessing over her pink glossy lips too – they look so hydrated! She MUST use a Lip Treatment. Her lilac lids look fabulous with her super long lashes, all paired with her dewy skin. It should almost be considered a ‘scandal’ to look this good… :)

Jenna Dewan-Tatum.

rs_1024x759-150222204033-1024-beauty-looks-jenna-dewan-tatum.jw.22215

You might not know this, but I have a serious girl crush on Jenna – I mean, she’s absolutely gorgeous, is an amazing dancer, AND is married to Channing – how perfect! Anyways, my #WCW looked so elegant in this nude gown and low ponytail on the Red Carpet. Her subtle smokey eye and full brows made her green eyes look super fierce, while this orange lip is my new favorite shade and I just have to try it. Her complexion is so bright and vivid, even with having a little one keeping her up at night!

Dakota Johnson.

dakota-johnson-oscars-2015-rex__large

It’s no surprise that the Fifty Shades of Grey star got lots of attention at the Oscars last night – she looked beautiful! This asymmetrical red dress with an embellished strap looked so elegant next to her pale complexion, along with her minimal eye makeup and cherry-red lip. Dakota doesn’t have a single enlarged pore anywhere on her skin – it’s incredible. To make your pores appear smaller, use Enza Essentials Pore Extraction Masque 2 times per week.

LATELY ON INSTAGRAM

I don’t know about you, but life over here has been crazy busy! Even though I always have something going on that keeps me running, I wouldn’t change a thing about it. Here’s a peek into my life on Instagram lately!

Lip gloss is always a fabulous way to look glam during colder months. I love any color from Jane Iredale’s PureGloss Lip Gloss collection!

It’s so important to have the essentials packed in my gym bag at all times – my Extraction Toner, deodorant, and a granola bar!

If you love talking on your cell phone, be sure to hold it away from your face or use speakerphone! Otherwise, dirt and bacteria can transfer from your screen onto your skin, causing breakouts. Ick!

Did you see my super simple recipe for a DIY Lip Scrub? It makes lips feel SO smooth! I always follow up with my Enza Lip Treatment afterwards too!

Nothing like a little emerald color to brighten up a gloomy winter day.

We absolutely LOVE Nicolette of Fashionably Stocked – isn’t she beautiful?! You can read her entire Enza review here!

BE BEAUTIFUL

tshirt kayla 2_1

We all deserve to feel beautiful – whether it’s a good hair day, clear skin, a bold lip shade, or a new outfit. That’s why I’m absolutely OBSESSING over my new “beBEAUTIFUL” t-shirt from Enza Essentials!

tshirt kayla

It’s seriously the comfiest top I’ve ever put on. The fabric is oh-so-soft and it fits so well – not too tight and not too loose. I’m in love!

tshirt kayla 4

This tee is so nice because I can wear it with anything! Jeans for a casual look, a blazer for chic sophistication, leggings for lounging, or, like I’m wearing, with a skirt and a statement necklace.

And the best part? These shirts will be available for YOU at enza.com! Coming soon!

BEST BEAUTY LOOKS: NYFW 2015

With New York Fashion Week 2015 coming to an end, it’s time to take a peek at not only the actual fashion itself, but the beauty looks that flood the runway. Here are my top five favorite beauty trends from this season:

Zac Posen, Matching Red Lips and Nails

54bc18fe1169f_-_hbz-beauty-zac-posen-ss2015

If you’ve been following my blog lately, you know that I’ve been obsessing over a bold red lip (shout-out to my fave Margi) this season. It’s just such a classic look that you can’t help but love! And what’s better than a red pout? A red pout with red nails, of course. This is seriously a match made in heaven. A pair this chic looks great on anyone.

BCBG, Bold Brows and Cocoa Eyes

54bc18f5bad8e_-_hbz-backstage-beauty-bcbg-ss2015-lg

Nothing says fierce like a bold brow in my opinion, and we all know that defined brows are SUPER hot right now. I’m also loving how minimal yet beautiful this brown shadow looks on her lids – it’s so simple but it looks so flawless! And can we take a moment to appreciate this model’s skin?? She’s actually glowing. With a complexion like that, she has to be using Enza’s Liquid Gold. Seriously.

Michael Kors, Windblown Braids

54bc190261394_-_hbz-beauty-ss2015-michale-kors

Ummm, yes please. I’ve always been a lover of braids, especially ones that are ok to wear messy and sloppy. This effortless ‘do can be worn for any occasion – whether you’re going to dinner with the girls or lounging at home with the BF.

*STYLE TIP: To get that bouncy, windblown look, spray hair first with dry shampoo. This will give strands LOTS of added volume and make it easier to work with.

Tanya Taylor, Bright Orange Lips

54bc1902d1008_-_hbz-beauty-tanya-taylor-ss2015

Although my heart belongs to a glam red lip, this bright orange color looks AMAZING. It’s the perfect shade for spring! It looks so good next to her pale complexion – just another reason to wear SPF every single day.

Anna Sui, Glittery Eyes

54bc190182f2f_-_hbz-beauty-anna-sui-ss2015-lg

When in doubt, add glitter. This sparkly look hit the runway of Anna Sui and shined so very bright. I love the placement of the glitter on her eyes – it really opens them up and draws attention to the shape of her eyes. I also like that the rest of her face is naked and free of makeup. But, when your skin is as smooth as hers, you don’t need to wear any. If you want super soft skin, try using Enza Essentials Vitamin C Serum.

3 INGREDIENTS FOR BRIGHT SKIN

Is your skin looking a little on the dull side lately? Maybe a bit uneven too? Don’t you worry your pretty little mind, it happens to the best of us. Whether it’s from lack of sleep, forgetting to wash your face, or drinking that third margarita on a Monday night, here are a few ingredients that will help give you back your radiant glow.

ZDS_0973

Glycolic Acid.

Glycolic acid can be found in many anti-aging products because it does a fabulous job of refreshing skin. It exfoliates the surface layer, making skin smoother by sloughing off dead skin cells that have built up over time. This gives you an instantly brighter, more vibrant complexion. My favorite product containing this magical ingredient is Enza Essentials Glycolic Serum – it’s gentle enough so it doesn’t irritate my skin when I use it morning and night.

ZDS_0969

Hydroquinone.

This active ingredient is known for it’s skin-lightening effects to treat brown spots and scars. It does an AMAZING job at brightening skin with regular and consistent use. Enza’s Lightening Perfection Creme contains 2% hydroquinone, making it a very effective ingredient, but still pleasant for all skin types.

ZDS_0958

Vitamin C.

Not only is this antioxidant super healthy for you to eat, it also can do wonders for your skin! This anti-aging ingredient boosts collagen production, resulting in skin looking young, fresh, and fine-line free. When searching for a product containing vitamin C, pay special attention to it’s packaging – this antioxidant loses it’s effectiveness when exposed to air and light. Enza Essentials Vitamin C Creme comes in an airtight pump dispenser so you never have to worry about it going bad. Pretty great, huh?

BREAKFAST FOODS FOR FAB SKIN

You’ve heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day – it gives you energy, helps you stay focused, and makes you feel like you can take on anything that the world throws your way. So, if it can do all of those things, why not have it improve your skin too? Here are 4 breakfast foods that will give you a better complexion by lunchtime:

Pink Grapefruit.

2013-02-04-boiled-grapefruit-p2-580w

This ‘fruit of paradise’ might make your tastebuds squirm, but the skin benefits are SO worth it. Packed with both vitamin A and vitamin C, this colorful fruit will help boost collagen production, leading to smoother and more elastic skin.

Tomato and Spinach Omelette.

brunch_spinachtomatoomelet

This tasty breakfast dish not only will fill your tummy up, but will also boost your skin’s health. Tomatoes are known for keeping skin looking young, as they are loaded with lycopene, the antioxidant that fights cell damage and reduces free radicals in your skin.  Spinach, another fabulous food for skin, can help clear up acne while giving you a radiant complexion. It’s also a good idea to toss these two ingredients into your lunch AND dinner recipes!

Strawberry and Kiwi Smoothie. 

stw-kiwi-mb

Don’t have time to make an omelette? This skin-improving breakfast is for you! Throw 1 sliced kiwi and about 5 strawberries into your blender, along with 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt and a splash of milk. Not only will this yummy drink keep you full throughout the morning hours, but these two fruits are loaded with the skin-smoothing antioxidant vitamin C. To get even more vitamin C skin benefits, use Enza Essentials Vitamin C Serum for younger-looking skin.

Whole Grain Cereal.

3952002

For those of you who enjoy the classic go-to breakfast, make sure you’re eating cereal that’s whole grain. Whole grains are the perfect way to get your antioxidant fix without even trying. I love Total cereal, as it also contains zinc, a natural anti-inflammatory ingredient.

Are you going to try any of these breakfast ideas? -xo Kayla
