Welcome Back!

For this months interview, I chose someone who inspires me on the daily. I met Jess in person at her sister(and my good friend)'s wedding this past October and we talked all things social media. I could tell right away that we would get along, as she is super kind, determined, strong, and most passionate about her side hustle. Keep reading to see how she fits a beauty routine into her busy schedule!


Hi, I'm Jessica! I'm so excited to be here :).  I am a young professional working in the healthcare industry (Revenue Integrity) and I have an online health and fitness coaching business when I'm not at my full time job! I'm a dog mom to my little beagle mix, Wade Wilson, and I'm married to a NYS Trooper, so life is pretty hectic.  I am always looking for ways to better myself - mind, body, and spirit, so it's fun connecting with like-minded women like Becca who inspire other women to gain confidence and embrace the beautiful women that they are!

What is your every day beauty routine (AM/PM)?

In the morning, I wake up and workout, so afterwards it's time for the whole routine! I shower, wash my face and hair, put on moisturizer.  Depending on how much time I have before I have to leave, I may or may not do much of anything with my hair, but there's always time for makeup! My makeup routine only takes about 10 minutes (in this order) - 
Liquid Foundation: L'Oreal True Match Lumi Luminous Makeup
Powder: PUR 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Foundation
Blush: I don't stick to a certain brand for blush - this is one area where I'll pick a drugstore brand that is on sale :)
Brows: L'Oreal Brow Stylist Shape & Fill Mechanical Eyebrow Pencil (I used to use Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer and found this pencil to be a good substitute when trying to save a couple bucks!)
Eyeshadow: Any palette from LORAC or Too Faced - I'm not afraid to use color and shimmer!
Eyeliner: LORAC Front of the Line PRO Liquid Eyeliner
Mascara: L'Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Lengthening 2 Step Mascara
Lips: Senegence Lipsense, color varies daily but my favorite right now is Girlfriend.

Basicallyyyy I wash my face with Botanics All Bright Cleansing Foam Wash and put on lotion - Alba Botanica Aloe & Green Tea Hawaiian Oil-Free Moisturizer

What is the one product you could never live without?
LORAC Front of the Line PRO Liquid Eyeliner
I don't think I will ever use another liner.  This comes with a brush rather than a felt tip and it stays on ALL DAY no matter what!

Lipstick, or Lipgloss?
Both! I use Senegence Lipsense which is basically a lip stain with a lip gloss over it.  They have a lot of fun glosses too - including matte, glossy, iridescent, rose gold, you name it!

Liquid or Powder foundation?
Both - but powder only if I'm in a hurry! I hate when my face looks shiny.

Liquid or Pencil Eyeliner?
Liquid - see above :)

Falsies or Mascara?
Mascara daily - but if it's a special occasion I love falsies! I get the Ardell Demi Wispies and use Duo glue. I'm not a pro but getting better with practice!

What is one beauty tip that you would like to share with everyone?
Figure out a routine that makes you feel beautiful and make time for it daily! I used to skip makeup on weekdays sometimes and I never felt as confident without it.  It really can make a difference in your day.

What is your first memory when it comes to makeup?
I remember Bonnebell lipsmackers and having alll the flavors. And scented kid-friendly nail polish. Ohhh the 90's.

What is your favorite part of your routine?
I'd have to say my lip color.  I don't feel myself anymore unless I have some sort of lip color! I purchase Lipsense through a close friend of mine, @megyocation (Instagram) and it has truly taken me out of my comfort zone but I feel amazing every day! I want all the colors!

If you could have anyone do your makeup, who would you choose?
Honestly I've never thought about this because I've loved my makeup anytime I've had a makeup artist do it! But I just looked up some famous ones and I'd love to see what Hrush Achemyan could make me look like - she does the Kardashian/Jenner makeup and they always look like goddesses.

I was so happy when Jess said yes to participating in this month's interview. Go give her a follow on IG (@jess_parrino) to learn more about her day to day life, and all things wellness. 

As always, thanks for reading.
