Ancient Beauty Secret

I am an all American girl that happens to be Eurasian and my husband says I am a Combination Platter off the Chinese Take Out Menu. People ALWAYS ask me what is my nationality. Even more when I moved from up North to sunny Florida. When I moved here for my husband I was so in love I forgave Florida for the HOT temperatures and the horrific humidity. But as time went by I came to the conclusion I hate the heat and my makeup melting. I also noticed brides and bridal parties hated it too. So, I pulled out my little box of love for my complexion and made them look amazing. This box is my makeup savior and go to. I have used it on my face since I was a teen and now on my clients for TV work, red carpet beauty moments,photo shoots and for my brides and bridal parties.

It is an Ancient Chinese secret handed down from generation to generation.

What is it?

A white looking brownie (yes like the Brownie we eat). It is a hard cake that becomes loose when applied with a powder brush.

Beautiful Benefits?

  • It is feather light powder that makes your makeup last longer.
  • Makes your colors remain true especially when you have issues with your makeup turning colors and helps them remain true.
  • Great for oily skin and complexions with a bit of acne
  • Tones down shine!
  • Sets your makeup!

But wait there’s MORE!

When I make up my face or a client’s face and I accidentally put a bit more blush on or eye shadow too overpowering or doesn’t look right….I simply take a brush,dip into my rice powder and clean up,soften and blend it out.

Oh and not only does it look great on brides and photographs nicely. It also is great for women of a certain age who get steamy and hot flash. Calms the heat and the powder cools the skin with a soft matte finish.

If  YOU or your client’s makeup is missing that little something or you crave all things Asian Beauty and or something new this is for YOU and to retail to your clients too!

I don’t think I could live without IT AND a gorgeous lipstick.

Palo Santo magic…

Candles and Palo Santo are my go to for so many reasons. Being it is πŸŽƒ Halloween I thought I’d share this aromatic wood with you!

Did you know Palo Santo is actually a tree native to the coast of South America. In Spanish it literally means “Holy Stick”.

It is used to clean and purify a space at work or your home or business. It also is good to do before you declutter and clean a space or room. And it does so much more!

I always recommend and say “Explore beyond your door.”

Buy some and search sites on all it has to offer.

Happy πŸ‘» Halloween πŸŽƒ!

Did you know?

It is breast cancer awareness month and I have some information to share with you. Not only do men get breast cancer too. But there is another type of breast cancer you can get too!
Do you remember when you had flawless baby skin? Isn’t this baby girl a doll? Do you remember how pretty your skin was too?
No marks, no spots no splotches?? Oh how I know many of you long for those days and that baby soft skin!

This used to be ME (minus THE tattoo) sunbathing 😎 in the summers in N.Y.C. Then I moved to Florida and sunbathed a bit more too.

UNTIL I got smarter. Sun smart to be exact.

I got squamous cell carcinoma and it wasn’t very beautiful or golden. I found a little brown raised spot ON my breast not in my breast. The Dr told me it isn’t very common. But common or rare I needed it gone.

I was terrified. Thousands of dollars $$$ in Drs. visits and a special surgery called Mohs to remove it at Mayo Clinic. It was a day I decided to never sunbathe again.

Do you love ❀️ Cookbooks?

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!

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!
