I want to travel again and discover what is behind this fabulous door!
I want to wear this luscious tangerine 🍊 lipstick when I do.
I want to sip a cup like this when I get there!
I want to pick these out from a flower market and bring them to my hotel room to enjoy my entire stay.
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?
So if you’re in the beauty business or just want to be in the know here are a few intriguing things they have been using.
Lady Gaga goes straight to her kitchen when it comes to makeup remover uses olive oil to remove her makeup 💄 as well for to hydrate her hair.
Many celebrities rinse their mouth and freshen their breath with coconut oil mouth rinses.
JLo thinks exercise, no smoking and no drinking are her secrets for looking young. I think it’s working! Don’t you?
Actress Catherine Zeta Jones uses slices of fresh strawberries 🍓 and applies them on her teeth to whiten and brighten her teeth. I asked my dentist about this and he actually said it may work!
Tiffany Haddish loves using coconut oil. And also makes a facial scrub with it by adding baking soda to it.
Wendy Williams swears by Gold Bond cream or lotion to keep her skin silky sexy smooth.
Gwenyth Paltrow is pretty game to try a lot of things (just check out her website Goop) when it comes to health and beauty. She also swears by pilates as her fountain of youth.
Nightingale or Bird Nest’s Facials affectionately called bird poop facials are yet another type of skin facial celebrities love. It is an old Asian Beauty secret for brightening and whitening the complexion! But they are also crazy about deep cleaning and facials in general.
Many celebritiesmale and female use a brand called Eminence.
They also use K BeautyKorean Beauty and other brand eye, lip and facial sheet masks as prep before a red carpet event or pre-photo shoots. They also use them in flight on airplanes.
So there you have it if you want to be in the know and what’s trending with a few celebrities right now. Share with your clients and friends. Maybe spend the 4th weekend sipping a cold glass of Sangria and doing self-care like the celebrities.
As beauty businesses, spas and salons we need to keep up to date with the trends. We also need to think about retailing some of them too!
Unfortunately, I see in my travels more and more non-beauty and wellness businesses carrying skincare and more!
WE are the licensed beauty professionals! Not an office supply big box store, craft or other type stores. It makes me sad when brands sell to just any type of business. We know all there is to know on makeup 💄 skincare and beyond. We know the skin in and out. We know what our clients need. We do the facials,massage and makeup services! NOT a clerk or a big box store who sells odd supplies and all things skin and beauty.
Think long and hard about your business and beauty career. Do you agree with me? Where are we headed?
To me it isn’t just about a sale. It is about building a relationship with the guests who come to us for relaxation, to feel prettier and not just about a profit!
My husband bought a good looking $299.99 office chair across from a clearance section of face masks. Feels so wrong.
While I do love ❤️ this store I wish the vendor did not sell these face masks and other skin supplies to this office supply store! I wish the store would stick to what they know best…Office and school supplies.
YOUR business needs to carry what’s hot in beauty NOT other types of stores. Our clients want to buy from us.We are the PROfessional!

Color !!! 🌈 rainbows of color for the hair, nails and makeup hues too! Neon is back from makeup,to fashion, to accessories!

If you couldn’t make it to a show or conference yet this year! Yet!
See you in Las Vegas at the International Esthetician’s Cosmetics and Spa show. Alongside the International Beauty Show! It’s not too late to buy your ticket 🎫 to my class and make it a mini educational & shopping 🛍 for your business vacation trip too!
Explore beyond your salon or spa door! Come out,learn all things new and be inspired too!
Next show is starting this weekend in one of my other favorite cities Chicago! 😎
I so love this city and the people in it too! Very friendly! Very clean! Shopping 🛍 and food to die for! The foodie 🍩 scene is incredible here I’ll share more after I get back.
Another reason I love ❤️ to work and play in Chicago is for the sound of the voices and chatter of a lot of people. The sound is of the Polish language. You see I am an All American girl whose mom just happens to be Polish. I cherish hearing that language. It reminds me of my mom and grandmother who is no longer with me. Hearing the Polish is music 🎼 to my ears.
I’ll be guest speaking at the International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa show. Ticket sales are great. My class will be filled and I can’t wait to share all I know and have to offer. My topic is Making 💄Up Woman Over 60 & beyond.
As esthetician’s and makeup artist there is so much we can do for our clients.
It’s sad when people think they are too old! Women tell me they aren’t dead! And they too want to look good and look sexy and feel it too! So that’s why decided to choose this topic to teach. I have many tips to share and makeup and skin secrets to take care of this age range too.
I’ll share more from the show floor and happy to answer any questions too!
If you’re in Chicago at IECSC or America’s Beauty Show. Come by and say “Hello!”
The show season has begun and I just returned from educating at the International EstheticsCosmetics and SPA show in the one and only New York City. The city truly NEVER sleeps.
I taught a class on Makeup…IF you want to carry makeup or already do. I shared business tips,beauty secrets and a few makeup demo’s to get your year off to a pretty profit start! SWAG included.
Make-up artist James Vincent did a class as well and taught an inspirational makeup class on TRENDS for the makeup artist and esthetician.I LOVE NEW YORK and grew up and worked there before I moved to sunny Florida. If you haven’t been think about making a work and play trip and join us next year!This show is amazing.
The show is co-located with the International Beauty Show. A hair,makeup and nail show.
Thank you to all who attended my class! I love what I do and inspiring you too!
