I got so wrapped up watching yesterdays show I forgot to let you know about the show. TODAY Sunday 13 thru the 15th 11:59PM you can still attend.Tickets still available.
So much to explore and even shop virtual booths. Classes with makeup artists like: Danessa Myricks, Damone Roberts of Beverly Hills and more.
At times like these we need to take care of our immune system and body too. Since it is summer and we shed our clothes and show more skin we need to also slough off dead skin cells. As well as hydrate the skin on our face and body too. One of my clients shared this recipe with me a long time ago. And I recently discovered it in my pandemic cleaning purge of some paper work etc.
I almost forgot how much I like this recipe alongside eating a bowl of oats or granola with home-made yogurt and fruit in season. To make home-made from scratch yogurt I use Belle + Bella. They have an amazing starter packet and unit to make it. It is fun and when i have leftovers (right) instead of licking the spoon I use the fresh yogurt on my face for a gentle neck and face mask.

Place a handful of the mix onto your body. She recommends paying close attention to rough areas like,elbows,knees, hands and feet. Allow the scrub to rest on your skin. Next she recommends rubbing with warm water and a washcloth or a loofah sponge.
After you get out of the tub. Dry your skin slightly and while damp apply your favorite hand and body lotion.

Want more lush lashes without looking like OVER THE TOP Bambi lashes?
Try a dash of baby powder on a disposable mascara wand. Wait a minute and apply any brand mascara.
Want a shimmer lipstick to turn into a matte lipstick?
The secret is a dash of face powder on your lips applied carefully over your shimmer lipstick.
Want to tone down shine but not look like you have a cake face on?
Rice powder is the answer. Totally translucent. Sheer.Lovely. Use it alone over a no foundation face. Use over any brand foundation even over a powder foundation.
Want that sexy magazine cover pout in seconds?
A really shiny brand gloss is the answer. And apply it in the center of your lips and a bit outward but NOT all the way for mega shine and sexiness.
Want a mascara that won’t run down your eyes and face when you cry at your best friends wedding or on hot summer days?
Try the brand called Blinc. It tubes the lashes not paints them with pigment…AMAZE…ing ! It works.
Want to feel fresh as a summer rose in a few minutes?
Rosewaterspray is an old Victorian secret the porcelain skinned ladies would use. It can be used on a flat cotton pad and applied on a clean face pre-makeup or after you removeyour makeup at night time. It is a toner for the skin and much gentler than using an astringent. Smells amazing feels so refreshing.
I hope you enjoyed these tips and you’ll explore more that I share with you. I love being a makeup artist I get to make people look good and feel it too! How about you?
It is skin cancer awareness month and it is time to remind ourselves to pick up a new tube of your fave sunscreen.
No, last years Sunscreen 🧴 tube won’t work. Old, once opened or if stored in a bright, warm or hot place it has lost its potency to protect. The formulas not the same. You need to start fresh!
People in Florida have begun to go to the beach 🏖 again and signs They have been there are are showing. I see red lobster 🦞 faces, peeling faces, dry inflamed skin. It isn’t very pretty as they race to chase the sun and a bit of color. I realize people are restless. A pandemic isn’t much fun is it?
But SKIN CANCER is probably worse. Especially if it is Melanoma. Skin cancer can be fatal. Protect that baby and your children and your own skin! DAILY not just during skin cancer awareness month. While you are at it call your dermatologist and book your annual exam. Mine is booked later this month.
If you own a spa, salon or beauty business and you’re back open again or have an online shop. Consider retailing sun 🌞 protection. Sunscreen & Bronzer are a winning combination!
I often hear women ask… What is your beauty secret for looking younger? Or I want to look younger fast! What can I do?
I think you know the answer. Skin cancer is a sneaky disease. Arm yourself! Please wear SUNSCREEN and throw on some shade too! 😎
You CAN enjoy the sunshine. You just need to do it wisely.
To all my followers who are not in the SPA or beauty business.Can you show me and raise your hands here by posting a reply?
I want to share some awesome beauty secrets with you.
To all my followers in the SPA and beauty business:
The International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa Conference in the one and only NYC and the International Beauty Show have come and gone.But they were both cancelled before it even began. The Governor declared the city that never sleeps a state of emergency. This Covid-19 virus is taking a toll on all our lives and for the sake of attendees, vendors and educators health … it was best for the company to cancel the show.
It was going to be an awesome conference. The massive show floor. The classes from an amazing array of educators!
I so wanted to bring the best of skin and beauty and all that’s NEW back to you!
But the FABULOUS good news they are rescheduling the show for 2021!!!
My clients are crying as their lips and skin are so dry! But today it is in the 80’s in Florida so go figure I am actually sweating after picking rosemary from my garden for dinner.
Winter is not pretty nor kind to our skin!
So this is what I do for my clients skin OR recommend they give to themselves in a pinch while at home.
Honey Face and Lip MASK
Wrap the clients cleansed face with a warm steamed wet towel. Leave the towel on at least 3 minutes allowing the client to relax a bit.
Remove the towel.
Apply organic honey to the face and neck.
Leave on the face at least 10 minutes.
Remove the honey mask with a warm wet steamed towel.
Follow up with a Rosewater skin toner.
Apply a light moisturizer.
And a dash of an eye gel.
A sweet simple delight! Your clients will ❤️love!
* Please note: Ask the client if they are allergic to honey or anything ALWAYS do a patch test first. Oh and by the way, you may use this on this lips too. Great for smokers lips,dehydrated lips and peeling flaky lips. Add a dash of organic brown sugar and rub on the lips for an on the cheap lip scrub. My little miracle workers!
Sometimes the simple things found in nature and the farmers market can make all the difference!
I discovered this recipe by Celebrity facialist and founder of Joanna Vargas Salon and Skincare Collection. I’ve always wanted to get a facial appointment with her in NYC but always ran out if time as work got in the way!
She promises this recipe revives the mind but gives our complexion a nutrient rich and hydrating boost! She drinks this 4:00 PM for tired skin and tired bodies.
If you’re ever in NYC get an appointment for her iconic facial services.
