Fix those DARK spots!!!

March 29, 2013

Do you have little brown spots or blemishes? Well honey that’s what we in the beauty world call hyper-pigmentation. So it’s time for you to get a good ol’ skin lightener to fade them spots.  Hydroquinone is what you need in your product if it’s going to be really effective. 

Try Murad’s Rapid Age Spot and pigment lightening serum, which blocks the production of melanin, inhibiting the production of new pigmentation as well as fading. Put it on every other NIGHT. You will see results in 4 to 6 weeks.

Urban Decay: SMOKED

March 14, 2013

"Can you give me a sexy smokey eye???" is the question allot of my clients ask me.  As a result I must say, I really really like the SMOKED palette from Urban Decay. So that has been my favorite go-to for a sexy smokey eye. 

A smokey eye does not always mean black or grey, it can be plum, teal and col-bolt blue. With this palette you definitely get options. The colors are rich and super pigmented but hey I'm talking about urban decay so I really would expect nothing less! 

Here is one of my pretty clients from earlier this week. I gave her a smokey eye using ROCKSTAR and a little bit of LOADED on the bottom!

She loved it!!!

Q and A

Q & A

March 13, 2013

Ok yall, here is a question from one of my fresh faced BEAUTIES...

Q: "Ok im going through some face breakouts and im going crazy!!! Loll. I never had to deal with this n i dont know what to try. Im breakin out around my jaw line, a little on my cheeks and on my neck..what can i use?? I have sensitive skin." 

A: Hey hun, What I am going to recommend is that you use a cleanser and OIL-FREE moisturizer from brand called SimpleSimple has no dyes, artificial perfumes or harsh irritants that can upset your skin. Instead, just their purest possible skin loving ingredients with added vitamins, for natural healthy-looking skin. Offering a skincare range suitable for all skin types - especially sensitive skin. I also recommend that you exfoliate ONCE a week using the Simple facial scrub. Exfoliation is considered one of the most important techniques that you can perform on your skin to resolve certain skin problems as well as to achieve healthy and glowing skin.

Detoxify your skin

March 08, 2013

As you may already know, EXFOLIATION is very very important to me. Exfoliation is considered one of the most important techniques that you can perform on your skin to resolve certain skin problems as well as to achieve healthy and glowing skin. If you your skin is not exfoliated and smooth, then you makeup wont look as flawless. 

With that being said I have found a new beauty product that makes me smile super big!!!!! Its called "The  Oxygen Peel" by Philosophy

I love this because it leaves my skin feeling and looking 10x better. 
Everything it claim its gonna do... I REALLY DO!!!!!! 
I do this oxygen peel once a week. However if you skin needs allot of love then you do it up to 3 days in a row. It comes with 10 capsules. 

Its really easy to use... 
step 1: break open one enzyme capsule, and pour it into the container. fill container halfway with warm water, and shake well. wait 1 minute for gel to form. gel will be lumpy in consistency. apply a thick layer to entire face; do not rinse off. step 2: apply oxygen foam directly to face, avoiding the eye area and hair line. this will become foamy as it reacts with the catalase enzyme gel. leave foam on for 1-3 minutes as tolerated. do not get near hairline or eyebrows, as bleaching may occur. step 3: remove oxygen foam based on your skin sensitivity. if sensitive (or active acne), rinse off. otherwise, use enclosed spatula to remove foam with a shaving motion, using the sharper side of the spatula. rinse. use once a week. if skin is experiencing unusual breakout, can be used three days in a row. 

Quick Beauty Tip: A simple test you can do at home to see if you have surface dry skin cells on your skin is to take a piece of clear tape and apply it to the forehead. Rub it gently and remove. Look at the tape, and if there are little pieces of flaky skin, then you need to exfoliate!
