Do you love ❤️ Cookbooks?

entertaining

I do!

I love to entertain, cook,bake and serve delicious refreshing drinks in  my home or in my beauty business. I love to read all kinds of books… but beauty and wellness have my heart. Making people 😊 smile! Happy! And feel loved 🥰 and appreciated in my every day life especially in my business.

Now is the time to think about entertaining your clients and host some events and do some promotions. You have from now to New Years Eve to work some magic!

I created a winning combination for food plus fun! A cookbook,marketing and promotions book 📚 all in one! It also contains some easy peasy recipes for 🍷 drinks, 🥘 plus desserts.

Clients will be craving YOU and your business even more when you do the little things, little touches and serve them some yummy 🧁 treats.

Get ready for the bounty of the beauty. 🍁 of fall, Halloween 👻, Thanksgiving 🎃, Chanukah, 🎄 and NYE 🎉 !

When I guest speak and do classes around the country and internationally I meet so many awesome hard working women in wellness & beauty. I love helping you and them be the best they can be!

Here are few comments:

I love notes like these notes  from my audience.

“I took your class. I had a blast! I learned so much. YOU were entertainment at its best!

“I love your book and learned so much. SO fun.”

“You are an inspiration and make learning fun and this book is so you. ”

Are you a collector of cookbooks like I am? Do you own a spa,salon or beauty business.

Bite into my book! You’ll learn so much be inspired too!

NO Sunscreen…makes me want to scream!

Just a reminder…Our clients can never be told this enough. “PLEASE wear sunscreen.”Sunscreen beach 2014 photo.JPG

In the past few weeks I have seen all kinds of sunburns and skin damage from the sun. I feel for the people from children to adults. RED as a beet!

I so LOVE the sun shining and miss it on a cloudy day. BUT.

I really and truly have learned since I moved for my husband from NYC to Florida that it is dangerous living here as we live so close to those beating rays. Oh and I do enjoy a bit of time in the sun walking on the beach and anyhere else. But I respect my body too much to bake my skin and body like a dozen cookies on a oven tray!!!

So as a skin cancer melanoma survivor...Take the time to share your skin care and makeup secrets and put sunscreen at the top of the list. Also remind your clients to see the dermatologist once a year for skin checkups.

Like I’ve done…you could just save another life! Or two!

Sunday is a funday

Always find time to take care of yourself! As a beauty professional,spa or salon owner you must TAKE TIME for nurturing yourself too. We can only give so much. All work and no play makes you look tired and feel it too.

Take a walk.

Eat something you love.

Buy yourself a bouquet of flowers.

Listen to music.

Explore another spa and enjoy a service elsewhere.

I didn’t always feel this way I had to LEARN how to give myself me time and self care time too.

Take it from me it is an art…and so good for your body,mind and spirit too.

Tips and Tricks…The Business of Lipstick

When it comes to makeup…Lipstick has always been a passion of mine. I love helping women select a hue and all things for the lips too. I must have fifty lipsticks on my vanity and I use them ALL!

My mantra is ‘A woman without lipstick is like a day without sunshine.”

Lipstick gives instant gratification and brightens the complexion. Applying lipstick is a quick demo that sells! Get your piece of the pie and start retailing lipsticks and for the lips!

When a woman is blue, she knows just what to do. She buys herself a new lipstick!

Even if you do not retail make-up, think about carrying a brand of lipsticks. Get your piece of the pie and start retailing lipsticks and more! If you already carry lipsticks. Bravo for you!            

 Lipstick is a cheap thrill. Carry a nice array of shades. If you do not retail lipsticks after they leave your spa, they are buying it elsewhere.

  • A survey says 75% of women believe that wearing lipstick improves their confidence and makes them look & feel better.
  • Lip stain lipsticks in all kinds of hues or glossy stains are all the rage and last longer on the lips than regular lipsticks. Carry at least one brand of them. Do not miss carrying this big seller.
  • Teach your clients how to savor the last drop of their lipstick or lip balm or ones that have melted, broken or been discontinued. A great idea is to retail (empty) lip palettes for your clients to store their lip products. They can mix & match colors like a makeup PRO with a case like this and a lip brush. Eco friendly and good for the planet too. They love this idea.
  • A lip brush offers a professional application and makes the clients lip shade look better and last longer on the lips. Consider carrying them too.
  • Little old ladies rub their lips together after applying their lipstick. Show your clients how to blot their lips as old Hollywood makeup artists did. Then the color will not stick to the teeth.
  • Most women wear a lipstick but they may not use a lip conditioner. Turn them on to one and professionally recommend they use it at night before they go to sleep.
  • Slow business months or tough economic times lipsticks are always profitable.
  • Lip products do not take up a lot of space and are a wonderful impulse item!
  • Lip pencils give shape and definition to the mouth and make the lipstick stay within the lip outline. They are still on trend and in but steer clear from those dark liner hues.
  • Lipstick Base is like foundation for your lips! It helps to keep the lipstick color remain true and not feather outside the lip line.
  • Tinted Lip-gloss can be substituted for a blush when blended quickly on your cheek and tap with warmth of your finger in a little rosy healthy rosy glow circle. Clients love when you share these type of beauty tips!
  • To make the lips look fuller…outline the lips with liner slightly outside the lip line, which makes them appear fuller.
  • To makes, lips look smaller…apply lip liner inside the rim of the lip to make the lips appear smaller.
  • Add some shimmer lipsticks to your collection for a sexy perfect pout. Illuminates the lips.
  • Teach your clients …the darker the lipstick she wears the smaller her lips will appear.
  • The lighter or more medium tone lipstick your client wears the larger the lips will appear.
  • Beauty Flashback…invisible lip liner is back in a big way and magically keeps lipstick or gloss from running down out of the lip area.
  • Have your clients kiss their lips good night with a super hydrating lip treatment
  • Cracked dry flaky lips need some love with a little TLC vitamin C or E lip treatment to correct the problem. May be used alone or under a lipstick. Men love it too.
  • KBeauty Gel Lip masks are amazing and are great for retailing or for an add on –service to your facials. Great for sun damaged lips and for smokers and those who puff and vape too.
  • Start a Lipstick Club: Buy 6 get 7th one free!

I love whipping up recipes in my beauty Kitchen.

Enjoy my recipe below.

PUCKER UP, Buttercup… Lip Sugar Scrub

 Add this natural skin care treat to your facial room as a treat OR as an add-on service! 

What you will need:

 1 teaspoon of organic brown sugar

1 teaspoon of grape seed oil or almond oil

 Optional: Add a dash of vanilla or rosewater (the foodie kind from a Middle Eastern store) for a kiss of flavor yumminess.

Stir these two ingredients together in a mini bowl.

Apply on clean lips with a small brush. Leave on a few minutes.

Rub this mix on the lips and move back and forth gently.

Leave on the lips for at least ten minutes for it to do magic.

Rinse well with water and warm washcloth.

Apply a lip conditioner or lip balm afterwards.

This recipe is also good for YOUR mail clients too!

 

My Tips and Tricks for Perfect Lips:

 Perfect – exfoliate with above recipe or a lip exfoliator for a smooth lip canvas.

Prep – with a lip base or lip primer to keep the lipstick lasting and color remain true.83MV9352

Apply –shape the lips with lip liner first and fill in with lipstick or colored lip-gloss.

Shine –Add a dash of gloss in center of the lips.

*For an extra sexy, pout. Add a powder highlighter or light shimmery eye shadow to the center of her lips. This is a secret from makeup artists from Fashion Week all over the globe. As well as magazines and that amazing lingerie show that we see on TV every year.

 As you can see, I am mad about making up the lips and sell many lipsticks to my clients in my business too. It is my fave part of the face to apply makeup too. I hope I have renewed your beauty passion and that you will love selling them too.
