December 21, 2012

Q: Winter is approaching and I'm not sure what color lip-stick would look good on me. I am a brown skin, African-American. 

A: “The best color in the whole world, is the one that looks good, on you!” -Coco Chanel
One of my Favorite Quotes! Your right its winter time honey and there are plenty of colors that can we worn to give you that extra WoW factor despite the frigit cold weather. For women of color I have and will always suggest pretty plum and purples or beautiful a burgundy colored lipstick. Here are my 3 Lip Stick I'm currently rocking on my lips... Oh and did I mention these are very affordable products.

My number ONE favorite right about now is by Revlon called Va Va Violet #663. Sometime I wear just this color or I will add a hint of pink. I can show ya better than I can tell ya. In the picture above I'm wearing Va Va Violet and M.A.C Amplifted Girl About Town on my lips.

My Second favorite color is Plum Paradise #425 by Maybelline. Yes, I know..Another shade of purple but its totally different when worn. Perfect shade for winter.

Black Radiance #5027 is another dark, sexy, and fabulous burgundy that's my third Favorite!
Well, that's my 3 favorite, of course I have waaaay more lipsticks and glosses that grace my lips.

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!

Did you know that beer is very good for the skin because of the vitamins and yeast it contains. The beautiful gorgeous Queen Cleopatra whom was known for having beautiful skin, loved beer. In fact one of her favorite tips was to soak in a beer bath. In Central Europe there are now many spas offering just this treatment.... WHOOO KNEW!!!????

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...

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
