The perfect pick me up for you this spring!

Is to buy a NEW lipstick and nail lacquer this spring! I know you think since there is so much focus on the eyes while we are still wearing face masks or face covers that you don’t need to wear a lipstick but you do! Lipstick is sunshine on a cloudy day like in Florida today. I just got up but am supping my Chai tea with a pretty lipstain and my lingerie on! It makes me feel good and is hydrating my lips too.

I also bought a new nail polish by OPI the other day.It is an awesome hue of lilac and purple.

BOTH of these make me happy. Every single time I lift my hands or do things with my fingers I see the colors on my nails it lifts my spirits. It can do the same for you!

That is why I teach my clients to take care of themselves and carve out some time on Self Care Sunday. This little gesture,this little time for you is great for your mental health and if you are feeling a little blue. This spring there are so many new lip and nail shades to choose from.

What color is calling you?

So go ahead paint that pout and brighten your nails with a pop of color. A little color goes a LONG way.

Looking for a unique & beautiful gift?

I found something you might be interested in. It is a page and shop I follow on Instagram by a professional make-up artist and artist who creates lovely ART out of a photo or you can choose something from her artistic designs.

I did a telephone consult to chat on what I was looking for.

Next I emailed her a photo of my lips 👄 wearing a lipstain that I created for my cosmetic collection. It is a rosy hue. I love it so much I wanted to preserve the memory, photograph and the actual lipstick on my lips.

This is an postcard ad we sent out to my clients when we launched my lipstick. Isn’t it lovely?

This card photo is what I sent the artist to work from.

👄

Look at the magical piece she created!

It is a silk scarf! I love ❤️ it and am beyond impressed. The artist suggested I frame it and make it wall art but for now…..

I am simply enjoying it around my neck.

My 👄 scarf!

Her creation came with a small card that read:

Lady Barbara Pinson Artist Collection. Your fashion fairy godmother. Lady Barbara’s Art is your JOY, Beauty, Hope.

Wrap Yourself in Love”

Lady Barbara creates original 🎨 paintings, then translates those pieces to wearable art,home,fabric, which then become your fashion for rears original lifestyle brand.

Thank you for your encouraging support, with your Lady Barbara Pinson Artist Collection.

Her website is:

If you are looking for a legacy piece, a memorable gift or your logo on a scarf or other pieces. I highly recommend you look into this artist. I love ❤️ supporting other women business owners. It feels so good! I hope someday they will support me too.

That is why I went the extra mile and featured her scarf in my Valentine & Galentine Gift 💝 Ideas segment on TV.

I want to enjoy this view and sunset. I saw one almost as gorgeous as this in Colorado and it’s beauty and the colors are still etched in my memory. I pray for our lives and have hope we will enjoy life again.

We must wash our hands often, mask up,do our part in social distancing and above all practice patience!   What about you?

What are you looking forward to?

Lipstick 💄 is happiness, lipstick gives instant gratification. Lipstick gives your face a lift! 💋

Happy 4th! If you live in America. If you don’t you can still enjoy the beauty of a gorgeous red lipstick!

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!

 

 

Getting ready for …Valentine’s Day

My favorite time of year!

I have a whole prop house full of ❤️ hearts and kisses 💋all ready for the season of love!

Time to decorate if you haven’t already begun in your home, office,spa or salon.

Got left over red ribbon? Curling ribbon? Red wrapping paper or other festive things from the Christmas holidays?

Bring them out and save some money 💵 by using up the rest of the trimmings or anything red decor. (Pink or metallics work well too)

Barter with a business or client or family member who bakes and serve some yummy cupcakes, pie, cakes or even chocolates.

I also like to do a chocolate love ❤️ tree. I bought a cone shaped styrofoam piece from Michaels and covered it with parchment paper. I bought a terracotta flower pot and filled it with foam and covered it in faux grass. Looks like a 🌱 and a tree. Got it?

Next I take chocolates from a box of nice chocolates. Stick a tooth pick into a chocolate and pop it in the cone tree.

I fill the entire space of that cone tree with chocolates. Over the Valentine season we put them out the week of and serve them and a cup of decadent coffee. After 5:00 or on a Saturday we offer Champagne 🍾 spritzers. Or serve them straight up.

We decorate the table with confetti’s, shimmering glitter or conversation hearts. Cheap and easy!

We prepare 3 bodacious giveaways!

And do a drawing on Valentine’s ❤️ Day! Clients love it. We also do a drawing for Galentine’s Day.

We also make our lipsticks 💄and lip treatment 💋products or services on special. Who doesn’t love a SALE?

And tis’ the season for KISSING? 💋💋💋 Right?

Lipstick on your teeth?

Wanna know what is buzzing in beauty?

Looking for a cool tool you for your lipstick loving clients will LOVE?

Don’t you just hate lipstick on your teeth after you freshly applied your fave color?

Using the old beauty trick by sticking your finger in your mouth remove the remains so it does not stick on your teeth. You need Lipstuk. Created by two awesome girl bosses who happen to be moms and childhood friends.

What is does it look like?  A lipstick tube.

What is it made of? Baking grade silicone. Diswasher safe. Much more sanitary than your finger. EASY to use, clean and recyclable… Great for on the go!

What it does?

AFTER applying lipstick. Insert  Lipstuk in your tube.

Close lips around the tube indent and slide out to trap excess lips product. You may use the top to blot, smooth and blend out your lipstick.

Not only is it a cool useful beauty tool it is just plain adorable!

My two favorite hues Luscious Kiss Red and Pretty in Pink.

Another beauty hack that you can do is refrigerate or place in very cold water and chill it. Use it to cool down tired eyes after a long day or when you have a migraine.

So don’t just sit there. Get yours and start enjoying lipstick free teeth!

Be the cool salon or spa on the beauty block and add this to your retail mix. Or enjoy it in your purse for beauty and touch ups on the go!

Have you ever been to…

Napa Valley?

It is all about the eyes this summer.

Either a look like this or a wash of one color all over the lid like a light shimmering gold or nude beach shade. Add any color eye liner and a navy mascara to create and open up her eyes and take away a tired look.

And let’s not forget about those crisp,cool,clean and white hot hues! Like white or silver eyeshadow and accessories too!
