Quench your Skin!

With this!

I love eating 🍉 watermelon day or night. It just is so refreshing and I love the way it feels on the tongue. Every juicy bite is a delight!

I also love ❤️ to use it in summer 🥗 salads.

COOL Watermelon 🥥 Pick Me Up

What you will need for this drink:

1 cup of coconut water

1 SPARKLING water

Juice of one lime

Mashup or muddle a few fresh mint leaves 🍃

1/2 cup of cucumber 🥒 peeled and sliced into thin rounds. Not chunky.

Place mixture in a blender or in a couple of tall glasses filled with ice.

Add a 1/2 cup of sparkling water 💦 into each glass.

Garnish with whatever you’d like. Mint leaves, cucumber slice or a tropical 🌴 drink umbrella.

Another way I like to serve watermelon juice is fresh squeezed from a blender and sometimes I like to add a spray of whip cream on top!

You haven’t lived until you tasted watermelon juice with whip cream on top! Crazy good.

Before the pandemic I served this to my clients in shot glasses. Just a taste! What a fun summer treat.

So refreshing and delicious.

Make a toast and drink your way to glowy skin!

🍉Did you know Asian women love to eat watermelon?

AND… Some woman and their daughters have been taught by their elders how to use the rind inside after you eat it and rub it on clean skin. They feel it makes their skin feel and look amazing.

Try it you just might like it!

Hope you’re having an awesome summer! 🏖

Need a Lift?

These two (a lipstick and a blush) I think are a winning combination. They give us a pop 👄 of color and can lift our spirits and even change our mood. We all need a little boost now more than ever. Don’t we?

Pink in any shade gives us a healthy rosy glow!

Something nude, brown or wine just quite won’t do.

Moving forward together into the summer yes we will and should  be wearing face covers or masks. We do it to protect others and they protect us to stop the spread of the virus. But when you aren’t wearing a face mask at home or in your own backyard, enjoying your family or enjoying a burger on the grill…. A little color can go a LONG way. I hear from my clients, friends and on TV how people are in a bit of a limbo state and some are depressed. We need to take a moment, enjoy and address by the little things. Don’t give in and get depressed. Surround yourself with beauty while the world is having a moment. Color your attitude.

We need to be our own makeup artist whether in the beauty business or if you are the girl next door,mom or working girl…we owe it to ourselves to be pandemic pretty.

Make the world prettier again with a pretty state of mind and one tube of  lipstick and a swipe of blush at a time!

PS

They say wearing PINK can make you look up to ten years younger!

 

 

Jingle Bells Lipstick Sells!

If you want to increase those holiday sales for the Holiday season starting with Black Friday you need to carry lipsticks!!!

Most spas and salons don’t and that is a BIG mistake as far as I am concerned. If you don’t carry lipsticks they are going elsewhere to buy it after they leave your business.woman with brown hair doing lipstick and holding little mirror

To get started all you need are a few colors of lipstick, a clear lipgloss and a lip liner or two. TESTERS are the key to sales. If they can’t try them. They may not want to buy one.

Offer, hand sanitizer, plenty of tissues and a disposable lip brushes.

Keep your makeup area immaculate. Cleaning up after every client is important.

During the holidays and winter lip conditioners, balms and clear glosses sell. But RED lipstick comes out of hiding and reigns supreme!

When applying lipstick there are a few points I would like to make:

First teach your clients exfoliation of the lips is key. Either with a lip scrub off  your shelves or a teaspoon of brown sugar and a dash of olive oil. Oh so exfoliating and soothing and makes the lipstick glide on like silk.

 

Fair skin: The complexion is prone to redness and may be very sensitive. Look for sheer,blue based reds. These hues don’t look over the top and too bold against pale skin.

Olive skin: This warm undertone complexion can pull off almost any color! RED included.

Dark skin: This hue can be warm or cool. If the skin has golden tones (think Halle Berry), choose reds with a brown base like brick red, cinnamon and such. Is the skin darker and more blue-based go for deep ruby with a hint of pink. Cherry or a burgundy.

Let the lips be the center of attention!  Lipstick is an instant face lift…don’t forget that!

Even if your clients say they don’t wear makeup…Don’t let that stop you from painting her pout and most likely selling her a bodacious lipstick!

Pretty Lips = Happy Clients!
