What are some of your personal beauty regimens and tips?

Most importantly, taking care of my skin, having healthy skin makes for the best palette.

Cleanse tone and moisturizer. Twice a week to use a mask my skin is needing.  Favorite mask is VIP 02 by Biologique Recherche, oxygenating and moisturizing "antipollution" treatment that restores radiance. I try to have facial treatments every 4 to 6 weeks.

Recommendation: Joanna Czech Dallas

With DFW summer officially in full-swing, what is your best tip on keeping makeup fresh ALL day?

First, use a light fine translucent powder to set if you tend to be more oily. If you are normal to dry, use a finishing spray like Mary Kay's Finishing Spray. Keep your hands and phone off you face! This is the number one reason I find makeup wearing off.

How do you want DFW beauties (and gents!) to feel when they leave your chair?

All DFW Beauties should always feel and look picture-perfect when they leave my chair.
