MakeUnder

Illustrations by Jacqueline Davis Moranti

Now that it's unofficially but ceremonially the start of summer, it's time to peel off the layers and really think about what we wear under there! One of the easiest ways for women to express their personal style is with lingerie, at least I believe so. How do you think about choosing that intimate first layer? Is it because of the outfit you're planning on wearing, the occasion or just maybe, the makeup?  Makeup is an interesting concept to match up with your most intimate choices! I've teamed up with Adore Me to share some of my favorite looks from their collection and makeup to go with it.

Sun Rays For Days

Illustrated by Jacqueline Davis Moranti


I like to think I have a pretty good skincare routine. From washing, to exfoliating, deep treatments and moisturizing, but the one thing that I will never forget in my routine is proper sunscreen. Anyone can buy all the wrinkle creams in the world but without some spf in their regimen then it's quite worthless, even with the $90 tub of face cream. Sunscreen is the absolute, most effective skin care product there is, it helps prevent against premature aging, skin cancer and melanoma. I know a lot of people that tend to skip this step, mostly because they don't know why it's so pertinent or because it's texture doesn't coincide with their makeup. Sunscreen is not just for the beach, ladies and gentlemen and skin cancer sees no color.

Brow Game

Illustrated by Jacqueline Davis Moranti

It seems that lately, the eyebrows are having a moment. Personally, I'm a huge fan of thick eyebrows, they frame the face better than thin brows and tend to give off a youthful appearance. On rushed mornings, if there's anything I can't leave without doing, it's definitely the eyebrows! I feel like an extraterrestrial with weird brows (see image). I recently discovered that a salon that specializes in the art of the brow would be coming to Philadelphia, The Brow Bar at Deneen Marcel Lashes!

An Artist's Touch

All illustrated by Jacqueline Davis Moranti 
As an illustrator, you tend to learn tips and tricks to getting works done. In my years I've learned many ways to draw and create images for clients and myself, in my own style. Along the way, I've come across a million art supplies, some great and others not so great. Having the right pencil or brush can make or break a piece, because not everything works with one's natural style.  I've compiled a list of my absolute favorites at the moment, along with drawings from my sketchbook!

Dress Up Your Hair

Illustrated by Jacqueline Moranti

I'll be the first to admit, that sometimes I'm bored with my hair. Sure, there's a lot of volume and shape to play with, but sometimes it just isn't enough to please me. I can remember back to my adolescent days when I used to continuously wear the "wet hair" look by scrunching in mousse and gel to achieve it. I looked like a "greaser," and worse is that I felt I needed to do this to look cool and fit in. Let's just say nothing good came from that and my hair hated me for it. Since then, I've been doing nothing with my hair besides bunning it or the occasional, lazy day wash and go styles. Sometimes you want a little bit more to your look, something that can dress your hair without cutting into your time. That's where Dauphines of New York comes in!
