The Beauty Products Makeup Artists Actually Used on Celebrities at The Met Gala — StyleCaster

This year’s “Camp: Notes on Fashion” theme at the annual Met Gala not only ushered in some daring, referential, and downright jaw-dropping sartorial looks (and elaborate performances to match), but it also presented us with some soon-to-be viral celebrity beauty looks for 2019. Despite the Met Gala’s reputation as “the biggest night in fashion,” this…

Hello & Kisses 💋💋💋from Hong Kong!

I am alive and kicking and haven’t forgotten YOU and my blog. But it has been difficult being on a twelve hour time zone difference from the US, to Korea and then on HK time. ✈️ The struggle is real!

I am having the time of my life… in my high heels and Skechers!

Learning new cultural rituals,shopping 🛍and eating 🥟 my way from country 🍚 to country!  I’ll be posting my travel notes soon.

I can’t wait to share my exotic travel, beauty 💄 and foodie 🥢🥡 adventures with you! Come back for more!

Water 💦 a beauty essential!

Wherever I go! I see girls and guys with a Starbucks or soda. Yet on the top five complaints I hear is how they wish they had clearer and plump looking skin.

It’s is so simple! Drink MORE water besides using hyaluronic acid and other creams and serums for your skin. It doesn’t matter if it’s plain or fruit 🍎 veggie🥒 or herb 🌿 infused 💧 water.

Make a fresh pot weekly or more.

Drench your skin from within with water! Your skin will reflect it and you’ll feel better and I find have a bit more energy too. There’s something about 💦!

Please…put down that coffee ☕️ sipping and soda 🥤 addiction habit.

Be good to your body and skin.

Do you ever crave certain foods?

Of course you do!

Unfortunately most of  my other cravings are about crunchy chips of any kind,buttered popcorn,old-fashioned Circus peanut candy and salted pretzels. peanuts!

So today I am giving into my cravings and indulging in all things green!

Here is a simple but mighty powerful healthy recipe to enjoy.

  • Steam some greens like spinach,kale or collard greens.
  • Add a squeeze of lime or lemon juice over it.
  • Don’t throw out the water from the greens you steamed.
  • Drink and enjoy it like a cup of broth or soup.

Steaming veggies like this creates a mineral rich broth that is a great way to detox. Always think about your beauty from the inside. Nourish your body and give it what it needs.

Take care of yourself… Darlings.flat lay photo of fruits and vegetables

Blackheads are rearing their ugly heads…

Once they come to the surface. That is why they call them blackheads the dreaded  clogged pore! 

Sometimes blackheads come from an over worked sebaceous gland. Not washing your face good enough at night and more.

Here is my go to D.I.Y. recipe for telling them goodbye!

2 teaspoons of cornmeal (I grind it fine in my coffee grinder)

1 teaspoon of Chinese or any other clay mask powder

1 teaspoon of lemon juice

2 teaspoons of plain yogurt (I prefer Greek)

bottle container cream creamy

Mix all of the above in a bowl. Let it rest. The cornmeal will get creamy and the clay will soften together. Stir and apply the mix on a wet face that you FIRST splashed with water. Apply to your face with a clean MASK brush or your fingers. Stay away from your eye area. I like to focus my attention to the T-zone or wear there may be a stubborn blackhead. Rinse with warm water and your fav’ cleanser and rinse again.

Your face will look better,skin tighter and the blackhead be gone (fingers crossed).

Do you have a mask or scrub you use that you’d like to share with me? I would LOVE to hear from you.

My beauty and lifestyle blog is a two sided relationship!

😍

PS

I like to keep all kinds of spices,sugars, flours and cormeal at my fingertips in my pantry for beauty.

Give yourself a Super Smile this spring!💋

IMG_2960.JPGIf you want a fresh new look this spring...change up your spring beauty routine when it comes to brushing your teeth. I like and use other toothpastes but always come back to this brand. And they have two NEW flavors for Spring!

Berry Chill and Coconut Key Lime Mint these are the HAPPIEST flavors and the tube is pretty eyecatching too. It makes me want to brush my teeth even more!

I am totally in love with SuperSmile a brand created by Dr. Irwin Smigel...the father of cosmetic dentistry who created the FIRST tooth whitening toothpaste!

These new flavors offer the same amount of 6 shades of when used with the Supersmile whitening accelerator. But I often use the toothpaste for it’s star ingredient Calprox. The unique way you use the toothpaste is on a DRY 😁toothbrush.

I saw results in a few days. And then they continued on. Just remember EVERYTHING we eat stains or tints our teeth. Like skin care you have to be consistent and used on a regular day and night basis.

The company says maximum results, 6 shades whiter is achieved in 30 days. Great for healthier gums too.

So maybe it’s time for you to discover a new way of brushing and have a healthier pretty smile too! SMILE BRIGHTER

Your breath needs to be at it’s best. Sometimes your breath will not be so fresh no matter what you do or use.  BREATH ROX to the rescue. As a professional speaker, beauty therapist and makeup artist…My career also depends upon being my best and smelling my best.
