You can get a microdermabrasion treatment done at your dermatologist office or your local day spa. Do your research first to assure that you are getting this procedure done by a licensed professional.

Oily Scalp Treatment

Did you know that if you have an oily scalp and use an oil based product, you will counteract your scalp from producing extra oil? The body will over produce when it feels you lack certain nutrients, so the less oil you use the more you will produce.

The key to youthful skin

Its only right to give your skin the best care it deserves, in addition to our eight hours of beauty sleep. Using anti-aging cosmetics like Olay Regenerist micro-sculpting cream fights wrinkles and keeps the skin pliable. Try it and see how good your skin will feel!

Make your Pout POP!

This morning, our chat consisted of us finding great ways to make your lips pop! Here are some helpful tricks:

1. You must exfoliate your lips once a week to remove dead skin. Apply a balm at night to keep your lips soft & luscious.

2. Lip liner accentuates your lip shape and helps your gloss/lipstick stay on longer.

3. For really defined lips, after applying your lip liner & lipstick, do not kiss your lips together! This will cause your lipstick to look smudged. 

4. Line your lips. Fill them in with a matte lipstick. Then go over the lips with a clear gloss, or a gloss that is the same shade as your lipstick. Dabbing is key!

March Beauty Madness!

Notice any similarities? This month, the top beauty & fashion magazines all featured nude lips on their covers! Instyle, W, Nylon, Allure, & Vogue all captured this lip in different variations. Depending on skin tone, shades of pinks, corals, and nudes can translate into a great nude lip. Want to try this look? We recommend Cle de Peau Beaute’s Enriched Lip Luminizer in Sweet Lychee (Adele’s Cover) or Covergirl’s Delish (Kim Kardashian’s Cover).

The Matte Finish

 

This season it seems that “glossy” isn’t the only way to be “glam!” A lot of fashonistas are straying away from the usual shine and taking on a Matte look! While Matte lips are most common, a lot of women are venturing into wearing Matte nail color.

Want to try the matte look? Follow these steps below:

1 Exfoliate your lips. Exfoliation of the lips gets rid of any dead peeling skin and leaves the lips soft and smooth. 

2. Moisturize your lips.  After exfoliation, put on a lip balm that will not dry your lips out. A light lotion may also work. (No vaseline or carmax!)

3. Prime your Lips. Take a lip pencil and outline your lips. Some people choose to color in their entire lip to achieve the Matte look. If that’s your preference, then, YOU’RE DONE!

4. Fill in your lips with your lip color. Use the same color lipstick as your lip pencil and apply to your lips entirely. Rubbing your lips together won’t help with smearing the lipstick; its up to you to make sure your entire lip is covered.

5. BE FAB!!

P.S – MARS, MAC Cosmetics and NYX HAVE GREAT MATTE LIP COLORS!
