There’s a beautiful product that you may not know about. It is an old school apothecary beauty product invented and created in 1895. I have enjoyed it for years! I use it in my makeup kit for makeup assignments. I also even carry it on my beauty shelves in my studio.
It is called Rosebud 🌹 Salve. Make-up Artists, esthetician’s, fashion magazines and Celebrities consider it their number one #1. lip balm. It is also a popular staple in hairstylists kit and makeup artists kits. As it not only conditions the lips it is great for hair flyaways.
It comes in a simple round tin. No fancy packaging, It is quite the multi-tasker!
It is also a mommy and family favorite used to aid on the relief of dry skin, diaper rash and the company says for detergent burns. Nail techs love to use it on cuticles and dry knuckles,and elbows as well.
Another version is Rosebud Mentholated balm with skin loving ingredients formulated by G.F.Smith’s grandson Allen R.Smith Jr.. it helps with not only the skin but bug bites, allergies, sore red itchy noses from the cold and other minor skin ailments.
Even the great granddaughter got involved and formulated and designed the newer lip product Smiths 🍓 Strawberry lip balm. Smells like Strawberry Shortcake!
All of the above lip formulas are very emollient!
If you ❤️ love all things beauty and fashion like I do… You gotta try this wonderful lip balm.
Oh by the way, if you’re a fan of mini tube like packaging you’ll love their new small but mighty squeeze tubes.
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.
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.
