If you tend to stay awake during late nights doing God knows what, I'm sure you have puffy eyes in the morning as a result. Did you know using a tea bag on your eyes actually works?? Well, its because the caffeine constricts the blood vessels , the tannins reduce inflammation and the pressure tamps down the puff!

Soooo if ya aint know, NOW ya do!

Removing Makeup just got EASIER!!!

December 13, 2012

Beauty Rule to LIVE by... 

Please, please please remove your makeup before you go night night. 
Your skin needs to breath in order to GLOW! 

With that being said here is a MakeUp remover/ Cleanser that I'm loving at the moment...

NEUTROGENA NATURALS 
Fresh Cleansing + Makeup Remover



Honestly, I was not a big fan of Neutrogena but I was in desperate need of a decent cleanser that also removed makeup effectively with out a lot of chemicals. Well honey, I am happy to say I found the  ONE!!!! Using this cleanser makes me soooo happy! I actually removes ALL of my makeup and thanks the Peruvian Tara Seed (from South America) in this cleanser my face feels soft. This cleanser is rich in Vitamin C, B and again Tara seed with works within the skin to boost  moisture levels and prevent dehydration while strengthening skins natural moisture barrier.

Say NO to Dry winter itch!!

December 06, 2012

Winter is here, which is a lovely time cuddle in front of the fire place or electric heater with a hot cup of chocolate and NOT worry about that dry itchy skin that come along with winter. During the winter, we of course want to stay warn so that means more HEAT. More heat means DRY skin.

When looking for a good lotion you have to look out for the loose thin lotion because that wont last. A lotion thick in consistency, will keep you skin moisturized for a good while. I have two favorite lotions I use in the winter. The first Lotion I love is....



DERMUD NOURISHING BODY CREAM This richly textured body cream, blended with Dead Sea mud, vitamins and shea butter alleviates symptomatic irritation, itching, intense dryness and roughness leaving skin feeling supple and well hydrated.


  • Powerful combination of the OsmoterTM and Dead Sea mud contains powerful self-regenerating powers
  • Aloe Vera extract softens and smoothes very dry and sensitive skin
  • Vitamin E protects and soothes skin



Eucerin, Daily Replenish does the job and its also excellent for those who suffer from eczema.
•Dermatologist recommended
•Strengthens skin's natural protective barrier to help prevent future moisture loss
•Fast-absorbing, non-greasy formula moisturizes for 24 hours
•Fragrance-free, won’t clog pores
The second best lotion for dry skin I love is ...


For me this is a classic...In my family we love us some Moisture Therapy by Avon. It keeps my skin feeling nice and refreshed all day. Not only does it moisturize your skin, it also protects your skin against chapping, windburn, chaffing, and cracking from severely dry skin.

As always I hope this helps...If you have a lotion keeps your skin feeling silky smooth

Oooooooh Guess whats NEW in the world of BEAUTY... INGLOT Cosmetics launched Double Sparkle Rainbow Eye Shadows – an extension of shadows for Freedom System.  


The Double Sparkle Eye shadow will be available in 10 different 
shades and provides the coverage of matte but leaves an element of bling bling to your eyes. Each color boasts three shades in one, which can be blended together or applied separately giving you a limitless variety of color options! The frosty and pearl finishes can accentuate textural differences on the skin, and the double sparkle leaves intense color saturation and reflective particles that won’t accentuate the fine lines of mature skin.  

About Freedom System
Freedom System is a unique method of arranging eye shadows, blushes, pressed powders, lipsticks, concealers and brow products in special magnetic cases, which can be combined freely.  The Freedom System collection is available in a variety of sizes from a selection of one product up to a palette of 40 eye shadows.   Palettes are designed for both the consumer and professional makeup artist alike.  Owing to the magnetic locks, cases can be combined freely creating “blocks” of cosmetics closed with one lid.  This solution is extremely useful while working on makeup as it reduces the space occupied by a huge collection of products to a minimum and also secures it perfectly.  Moreover, eye shadows, blushes, and powders are placed on a magnetic tape which makes it easier to exchange them.  Each of the cases can also be closed individually with a separate lid.

White teeth

Not so pearly white

October 22, 2012



Here a question from one of my FRESH FACED DIVA's

Q: Why do my teeth look so dingy, How do I get them back white???

A: Well honey, that cup of coffee, tea, soda and red wine that you may love to drink could be the culprit. Oh and smoking is your teeth worst nightmare!

Along with your twice-a-year dental visits, you can brighten your teeth several shades with a whitening toothpaste that contains carbamide peroxide, but I suggest you use it only once a day to avoid drying out gum tissue. Rembrandt Plus with Peroxide toothpaste is highly recommended.


Baking Soda is one of my favorite less expensive solutions for bringing your teeth back to light.
I have already blogged about this so if you want to know more on how and why baking Soda works click here ---------->  Baking Soda 

As always, I hope this helps!

Today my beauty blog is going to be dedicated to all the Little cutie pies of the world...yup BABIES!! When it comes to our precious little people, us Mommies want nothing but the best products soothing and moisturizing their skin and much more.

Just recently, I've found out about California Baby, and honey I had to tell ya all about it. The business concept was first born in the early 90′s when founder Jessica Iclisoy wanted to find a safe and sustainable alternative to mainstream baby bath products. She started experimenting with organic herbs and plants, essential oils and powders to create various cleansing potions. By 1995 she introduced her first hit product, Calming Shampoo and Bodywash.


.
 California Baby Shampoo and Bodywash gently and effectively cleans hair, face and body using 100% natural and organic cleansing ingredients such as organic soap bark, wild harvested yucca and super gentle glucosides that all come from renewable and sustainable vegan sources. These all-natural vegetable cleansers are non-stripping, sulfate-free, synthetic fragrance free, naturally low foaming and readily biodegradable (that’s the term for extremely and completely biodegradable). California Baby’s gentle natural Shampoo and Bodywashes are ultra-concentrated, long-lasting, allergy-tested, tear free, non-drying and leave skin soft and supple and hair shiny and manageable. Formulated for sensitive skin and perfect for the whole family, pick up any of the five California Baby all natural Shampoo and Bodywash blends for happy and healthy cleansing. 

So if you are into using complete ORGANIC and pure products this is it!!! As always I hope this helps! Oh and you can get these great products from your local Ulta

As you may know I am a Freelance MakeUp Artist so of coarse I have a TON of MakeUp sad to say. However, I've been asked sooo many times what's my favorite must have to carry in my little personal MakeUp Bag so honey I'm gonna tell ya!!

Victoria's Secret Luminous Mineral Blush Duo... My favorite blush, its so beautiful!

Maybelline Dream Matt Mousse: I just got this and I'm not really sure if I like this foundation or not. What I can say is it does give me good coverage and it is lightweight.




Urban Decay Big Fatty Mascara: This mascara is currently my FAVORITE! The Big Fatty gives me gorgeous dramatic lashes
$18 - Ulta

Oily Skin

Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate!!!!

October 01, 2012


Here is a QUESTION from one of my FRESH FACED DIVA's ....

Q: "I clean my face every day…DO I REALLY NEED TO EXFOLIATE?"

A: Well, honey first let me start by letting you know that even the best makeup in the world will look like dirt if it's applied on top of skin that is dry, dull, or flaky. Cleaning your face everyday is  fine but we all need to exfoliate every once in a while.  Basically the point of exfoliation is to remove dead skin cells, oil and anything extra that could be clogging your pores. 

After exfoliating your face should feel smooth and look healthy. If your skin is red and irritated after exfoliation then honey STOP using whatever you was using. More importantly DO NOT EXFOLIATE EVERY DAY, JUST ONCE OR TWICE A WEEK!!!!!! 

Here is 3 MUST have facial cleansers that will surely exfoliate! All three products are great for people with sensitive skin. 


JUICE BEAUTY APPLE PEEL $37
 This peel has fruit acids that brighten skin, and highly recommended for winter. Apply once a week to oily skin, once every two weeks to dry skin. This product contains glycolic acid, malic acid and lactic acid. Also contains aloe, which soothes and hydrates the skin.


St. Ives Timeless Daily Microdermabrasion $10
This Allure recomended product has fine mineral crystals, chamomile and vitamin E. Oh and its also easy on the pockets 


Glycolic Foaming Cleanser $15
This is perfect for dull, congested skin, this lathering, deep cleanser has the exfoliating powers of Glycolic Acid to break down build-up from skins surface, reduce minor discoloration and leave skin radiant and smooth. Oh and did I mention that I love love love this!!!!

Well as always I hope this helps!

What is BASE COAT and do I need it???

September 26, 2012

Are you exploring the wonderful world of Nail polish??? Doing your own nails? Well, then you should know how important it is to use a Base Coat before you make them look all fancy.

A base coat protects your nails by creating a barrier from the damaging effects of nail polish such as staining, peeling and much more. It also will give your polished nails a more even texture.Some base coats prevent breaking, splitting and peeling and some base coats are made to fill in any lines, ridges and grooves to give the nails a smoother looking appearance.
Here is the #3 Base Coats I'm currently loving!!!


Sally Hansen, Ultimate Shield is easy on the pockets, drys fast and does the job! 

OPI Natural Nail Base Coat is loved by many! Its the perfect base for OPI Nail polish and it does the job!



Ok yall, this is my FAVORITE Base Coat!!!!! If you don't know about Butter London then honey you're missing out!!! Butter London is Formaldehyde free and pretty much awesome!!! This base coat does the job and some!!! 

As always I hope this helps :-)

#3 Concealers that are a MUST HAVE!!!!

September 24, 2012

Dark circles??? Well honey most of us got them, but don't worry I'm about to tell ya what ya can do to quickly conceal it. Here are my TOP 3 concealers I'm loving at the moment.

But WAIT!!! Do you know what Concealer is and HOW to apply it? Lucky you, I blogged about that a while back just click here--------> NO more Dark Circles or Blemishes!

1.) I am NOT a huge fan of Bare Minerals so I am really shocked I am saying this but I am LOVING Bare Minerals "NEW" SPF 20 Correcting Concealers. As of late, it has been my GO-TO concealer. I like that its very creamy and  blendable. The medium to full coverage is GREAT!!! $20 


2.) Another creamy and blendable concealer that I really like is the 24/7 Glide-On Concealer by Urban Decay. It's very clever that a concealer can be in a pencil. Which makes it easy for a on the go teen who needs to quickly touch up her dark circles. $19


3.) Last but not least I told yall before that I love the Flawless perfection concealer by Black Opal and honey I STILL love it!!! This is a  full coverage creme concealer with Vitamins A, C & E that helps hide dark circles without causing caking or creasing. $4.75



Well as always I hope this helps!

Beauty Sleep is a MUST!!!!

September 19, 2012

Do you have a decent bed time??? As an Adult, BEDTIME is a thing of the past LOL! As a teen its something most of you may still have. Either way good ol' Beauty sleep is really a MUST!! "The most important item in your makeup bag is a good night of sleep" says the beautiful Tyra Banks

I found a very interesting article that I wanted to share with yall from Dr. Oz Website. Dr. Oz and his team are figuring out the science behind why you need sleep in order to look good. Turns out that people who sleep more, look better. That's because sleep deprivation is a form of stress. And like other stressful conditions like illness, trauma and emotional hardship, sleep deprivation causes your body to make more steroids. And its those steroids that decrease the formation of collagen, the structural layer of our skin. The decreased collagen causes thinning of the skin and wrinkles. It also weakens the barrier function of the skin, allowing toxins to penetrate, and leading to wounds, infections and even skin cancers. As if that's not enough, sleep deprivation contributes to obesity, affecting your health, as well as your appearance.


Soooooo, let me ask you again...Do you have a decent bed time???? I bet you do after reading that!! As always I hope this helps. For more of Dr. Oz great beauty tips check out http://www.doctoroz.com/

Acne

Did you KNOW?

September 17, 2012

Honestly honey, I'm not a big fan of how tomatoes taste but they soon will be in my kitchen at all times. I'm sure you are wondering why??? Well DID YOU KNOW, tomatoes can and is known to diminish blackheads.

When pores become clogged with dirt, dead skin cells, and  your skin's natural oil we would then get a highly unwanted blackhead or pimple.  Tomatoes contain unique acidic properties that work as an perfect exfoliate. Its a beyond great way unclog pores and get rid of blackheads

Health-Guidance to better health gives great methods on how to use the tomato to fight your unwanted acne listed below.


Remedy Method # 1
The first method is as straightforward as it gets: take a tomato, cut it, and rub it on your face where the acne shows. This method isn’t as effective as some others that will be listed but for minor breakouts it could actually be preferred as it does not involve a lengthy amount of application time. All you do it cut the tomato in half, take half to the sink and smear the cut side against your face. Massage the tomato juice into the skin for a few seconds after application, and then you simply rinse it off with warm water.

Remedy Method # 2
A second method called the tomato facial mask is a lengthier process but it works well for even tough cases of acne. Get a tomato and cut an "X" at the top of it. Run the tomato under warm water for a minute or two, then peel the skin (which should come off rather easily after the warm water wash). Gut the tomato of seeds entirely then take the pulp that you have left and mash it up. Turn the pulp into tomato paste and once the paste is sufficiently smooth in consistency, apply as a facial mask over the entire face just as you would apply a cream facial mask. At this point you’ll need about an hour where you can hang about and just leave the mask on your face to harden and work its magic. After the full hour, rinse the mask off thoroughly.

Remedy Method # 3
Yet another way to use tomatoes in the treatment of acne is available for those who don’t feel comfortable leaving pulpy tomato on their face for an hour or for those that don’t like the idea of rubbing half of a tomato across their face. Simply take one tablespoon of tomato juice, mix it up with about three or four drops of lime juice in a small dish, then apply the mixture to your affected areas of acne with a cotton ball. This application needs to set for four or five minutes to be effective as the acidity in lime juice needs a bit more time than commonly featured over-the-counter ingredients like alcohol to dry out your skin but it works just as effectively given the full five minutes. Once the application has set for five minutes, rinse with warm water.

As always I hope this helps :-) Please comment or share!

Did you Know?

Did you know???

August 27, 2012


Do you love your phone as much as I do??!! I take my phone with me EVERYWHERE, sad to say but hey I do! Oh and I'm sure you do too. But DID YOU KNOW your phone can cause you to have breakouts on your face? Think about it, our phones get really dirty because we lay them just about anywhere. 

David Bank, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center explains that "When we talk on the phone, the warmth and moisture create a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. By constantly being on the phone, you cause acne mechanica. This is caused by not letting the pores breathe and the friction from your phone onto your face. It begins with rough and bumpy skin, and with continued irritation, it develops into inflamed pimples." 

So I suggest you clean your phone with a little rubbing alcohol or Lysol disinfecting wipes at least once a day.
