As a professional makeup artist I have learned so much working in and out of the studio and on photo shoots outdoors.
Here a few makeup tricks and tips I think you’ll enjoy doing!
Drinks on the beach 🏖 or at a beach bar or enjoying a beautiful sunset with your sweetie I know you want to look good! And maybe sexy too.
Prepping your bare eyelids with a smidge of petroleum jelly will turn powder shadows into a shimmery cream eyeshadow. It also helps powder eyeshadows last when hotter weather has arrived. Brides getting married outside love this trick too.
A creamy balm like SPF applied first and then a dash of powder blush on your finger…. Makes a lasting gorgeous glow blush look.
Don’t want your lips to fade and make the pigment also last longer? Apply a creamy balm on your lips first . Next add a swipe of color. Do not rub your lips 👄 together.
Want the definition of mascara without the run and raccoon look? Simply use a clear mascara or buy a tubing mascara like the brand Blinc it is an amazing mascara. Give it a whirl.
Summer is coming! Try and keep cool and look good with these tips.
I love the month of May! Depending where you live the weathers warming up a bit, the flowers are in bloom and spring really speaks to us.
Flowers are the perfect pick me up!
Sunshineon our shoulders brightens our day!
Fruit and veggies arrive and we can enjoy the freshest ones in season.
It is also a time to remember to ADD even more sunscreen into our daily ritual. A shot glass filled is a great start. If you’re spending time outdoors or at the beach you’ll need to apply it even more.
It is SKIN Cancer Awareness month and this is a reminder don’t forget to wear sunscreen. SPF is the skin care secret for less wrinkled and to stop damaging your skin. The sun 🌞 can give you skin cancer in rain ☔️ or shine.
As a skin cancer SURVIVOR I urge you to do this! Not for me but for YOU and the health of your skin too.
My clients always ask me the secret to having younger looking skin?
Sunscreen, a good nights rest and not going to sleep with makeup on is at the top of my list answer.
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.
Just a reminder…Our clients can never be told this enough. “PLEASE wearsunscreen.”
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!
