So, what is “Beauty Secrets”? Beauty Secrets is where you can learn about the beauty-full inner workings of women who are moving and shaking in their world, whether it be in beauty, personal finance or somewhere in between.

Today’s muse is Jessica Abo. Jessica and I met last year at a shoot for NY1 and it was girl crush at first site. I mean, how could you not love this journalist/social entrepreneur/speaker/fashion entrepreneur/author?

As a TV news anchor and reporter, Jessica has spent more than decade covering everything from breaking news and business profiles to sports, food and Fashion Week. She has even played herself on Gossip Girl, Nurse Jackie, House of Cards, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and more. She launched her own media startup in 2014 and produces content for millennials, nonprofits and corporations. She  recently gave her first TEDx Talk in New York City, is launching her own fashion line this year and working on her first book.

Here are Jessica’s beauty secrets:

my mom would touch up her lipstick before leaving the house, or before getting out of her car, and say, “Now I’m ready for business!”

1. “Growing up, my mom would touch up her lipstick before leaving the house, or before getting out of her car, and say, “Now I’m ready for business!” I have adopted that motto and don’t ever leave home without lipstick or lip gloss.

2. No matter the time of day, I like do to a very smokey eye combo, using palettes from Urban Decay. Pixi by Petra or ones I have customized at MAC.
3. Because I do a smokey eye, I tend to use very light color on my lips. Favorite shades include MAC Lip Glass in C-Thru, Snob and Nymphette.
4. For hair, I love everything Pai-Shau makes and pack the entire line whenever I hit the road. It’s gluten-free – another reason why I love it!
