I remember the days…

When we served rose all day.

I miss seeing my clients in my makeup studio. I miss touching their faces! I miss giving them hugs too. Now with the pandemic things are so very different. I have NOT opened my beauty cottage YET. The Covid-19 numbers upticking here in Florida I don’t want to yet. I care about my clients safety and the health of my family.

I also remember the good old days when we would serve them all kinds of treats and drinks. From sugar cookies dipped in chocolate and lavender buds and chocolate dipped strawberries to sparkling drinks. Rose wine 🍷 was the last drink we served them in March.

Here is one of the recipes I enjoyed serving them. I thought you might enjoy this coming weekend. Or tonight!

Rose Sparkler with Raspberries and Lemons.

What you will need to make this refreshing drink:

1 1/2 pt. of fresh raspberries

2 tsp.of sugar

2 tbsp. of lemon juice

Sliced lemons and raspberries for embellishment!

Mash the raspberries with sugar and lemon juice in a pitcher. Top with sparkling rose. Serve over ice with the sliced lemons and raspberries.

Beauty Tips We Makeup Artists LOVE!

Want more lush lashes without looking like OVER THE TOP Bambi lashes?

Try a dash of baby powder on a disposable mascara wand. Wait a minute and apply any brand mascara.

Want a shimmer lipstick to turn into a matte lipstick?

The secret is a dash of face powder on your lips applied carefully over your shimmer lipstick.

Want to tone down shine but not look like you have a cake face on? 

Rice powder is the answer. Totally translucent. Sheer.Lovely. Use it alone over a no foundation face. Use over any brand foundation even over a powder foundation.

Want that sexy magazine cover pout in seconds?

A really shiny brand gloss is the answer. And apply it in the center of your lips and a bit outward but NOT all the way for mega shine and sexiness.

Want a mascara that won’t run down your eyes and face when you cry at your best friends wedding or on hot summer days?

Try the brand called Blinc. It tubes the lashes not paints them with pigment…AMAZE…ing ! It works.

Want to feel fresh as a summer rose in a few minutes?

Rosewater spray is an old Victorian secret the porcelain skinned ladies would use. It can be used on a flat cotton pad and applied on a clean face pre-makeup or after you remove your makeup at night time. It is a toner for the skin and much gentler than using an astringent. Smells amazing feels so refreshing.

 I hope you enjoyed these tips and you’ll explore more that I share with you. I love being a makeup artist I get to make people look good and feel it too! How about you?
