-MLAB anti aging line, cleanser, toner, and moisturizer, and treatment cream
-Ken Paves color drops for vibrant color
-MAC studio fix concealer

6. How can one recreate this look?
-Prep skin with a scrub to make sure you are super soft.
-Use a body cream that wont stain your clothes but will keep moisture locked in.
-When doing a dramatic lip, keep eyes simple but pile on lashes for impact!
-Always use a loose bronzer for body, and use a baked bronzer to achieve that 70’s sun kissed goddess look.
As some of you may know, WEEN Radio made it’s debut on Blog Talk Radio October 1st at 11pm. The first show asked (and answered) the question “How do you define a healthy relationship in the year 2008?” with relationship expert, Lauren Lake. The show proved to be a huge success, which led to it being put into an earlier time slot- 9pm. Make sure you tune in next Wednesday at 9pm for some more girl talk with the dynamic hosts. In the meantime, check out the first show in it’s entirety here.
The ladies of WEEN would like to thank everyone who tuned in.
