The Erica Diamond Podcast

Aug 3, 2020

Episode Summary

We are living through difficult times-- it is no secret. And experts have said to brace ourselves, because this is our new normal for a while.

Between, my weekly segments on Global TV, and social media, I have covered every angle of COVID19: from stress, to work, to family. And because it’s summer, and I ALWAYS go lighter in the summer in my lifestyle brand, I decided to introduce a little lightness to our show.

I dont know about you, but I am trying to age gracefully, and to fight the wrinkles that are coming on with a welcomed embrace. It ain’t easy, believe me. And since we are starting to reintegrate back into social settings, and step out of our homes for perhaps to a backyard dinner date or socially distanced pool party outside, I wanted to have a beauty expert on the show to discuss summer skin, summer beauty, musts for summer, and what the beauty trends are now during our COVID summer.

Today I’m thrilled to have Matthew on the show. Matthew Richard is a makeup artist and Influencer Relations lead for MAKE UP FOR EVER. He is obsessed with helping women look and feel their best.

Matthew’s personality is magnetic, and I know you’re going to love him as much as I do.

If you like what you hear, have no fear... Matthew is back for part 2 in the fall! for Fall beauty and how to care for ourselves in the fall.

  • What are the 5 essentials we need this summer?
