Ancient Chinese Beauty…

I am an all American girl that happens to be Eurasian and my husband says I am a Combination Platter off the Chinese Take Out Menu. People ALWAYS ask me what is my nationality. Even more when I moved from up North to sunny Florida. When I moved here for my husband I was so in love ❤️ I forgave Florida for the HOT 🥵 temperatures and the horrific humidity. But as time went by I came to the conclusion I hate the heat and my makeup melting. I also noticed brides and bridal parties hated it too. So, I pulled out my little box of love for my complexion and made them look amazing. This box is my makeup savior and go to. I have used it on my face since I was a teen and now on my clients for TV work, red carpet beauty moments, photo shoots and for my brides and bridal parties. I use it on men too!

It is an Ancient Chinese Beauty secret handed down from generation to generation.

What is it?

A white looking brownie (yes like the Brownie we eat). It is a hard cake that becomes loose when stroked and applied with a Kabuki powder brush.

Beautiful Benefits?

  • It is feather light powder that makes your makeup last longer.
  • Makes your colors remain true especially when you have issues with your makeup turning colors and helps them remain true.
  • Great for oily skin and complexions with a bit of acne
  • Tones down shine!
  • Sets your makeup!

But wait there’s MORE!

When I make up my face or a client’s face and I accidentally put a bit more blush on or eye shadow too overpowering or doesn’t look right….I simply take a brush,dip into my rice powder and clean up,soften and blend it out.

Oh and not only does it look great on brides and photographs nicely. It also is great for women of a certain age who get steamy and hot flash! Calms the heat and the powder cools the skin with a soft matte finish.

If  YOU or your friends makeup is missing that little something or you crave all things Asian Beauty and or something new this is for YOU!

I don’t think I could live without IT alongside a gorgeous 💄 Lipstick of course!

SHOP on,Gorgeous!

Last weekend was Shop Small Saturday all across the country started by American Express. I participated in it proudly again this year. And here are a few takeaways of what girls bought for their  besties or themselves.

Stocking Stuffers or token gifts…

Remember it is the thought that counts not the price OR how much you buy for that person! And you know what the real reason for the season is!

Makeup Brushes by the set are a coveted gift a girl struggles to get for herself. So many to choose from and it can be overwhelming. Buying ala carte is not the best thing to do unless that is your budget. It is cheaper and chicer to buy a set. And you don’t have to spend a fortune for them. Remember the $ dollar $ quality is not the same as a boutique.

Wine,rose,champagne  wine holders  chic and so versatile. Use them for booze, décor and or to rest your bling and baubles on. They say wine is most gals best friend over any other libation. Add a few gourmet or edible delights like below and you have a gift that won’t be forgotten!

Lipsticks are always in style and putting together a set of a variety of them for your mom or bestie can be so much fun! Add a gloss or balm and they love you forever.

*Add a lip brush and you’re all set. Yes, they are still in.

Bath and Body Treats are so lovely! And SO NEEDED. When you shop you can get a lot of little pieces. Aromatic and hydrating are best for the skin. And aromatherapy is so relaxing and mood lifting and calming.

Candles are always a good idea!

Palo Santo,Sage and herb plants are both unique and practical too.

Fragrance is a very personal thing. So, I usually only give it in bath and body lotions not necessarily by the bottle. Unless you know the exact fragrance they love.

I hope I got your juices and creativity going for finding that perfect token gift or stocking stuffer.

Have fun and happy Shopping,Gorgeous!

Autumn Beauty & Fashion

What’s new this autumn?

Oh how I love the way that sounds….

Today on TV on River City Live in sunny Jacksonville Florida I am showing the TV viewers just that.

Here are some fall trends in makeup,skincare and fashion.

It is going to be a colorful and fun season!

Plaid is trending. But anything Leopard print is HOT 🔥!

Accessories add a touch of whimsy and fun. They brighten up a wardrobe. Buy a new handbag. The latest fashion craze are small purses and belt bags.

Metallic accessories are so in. And rose gold isn’t going anywhere!

Male grooming and skin care is so in!

Men realize they want to look good and need a moisturizer too!

Check out: http://www.mensroutine.com  for the MR. in your life! My husband loves the activated skin scrub especially!

Gleaming skin is the answer to your skin.

You can gleam too with Melanie Mills from Hollywood’s kit. Three glorious shades to glow with. May be used on the face and body.

They are running a special with a $50.00 purchase or more get a selfie light absolutely FREE!!!

The Glow Girl Kit is one of each of the fabulous lighter Gleam shades in mini 1 oz tube sizes.  Great way to try the brand and enjoy them for travel too.

As seen on The hosts of The Real TV daytime show. And on celebrities & models.

Lip plumpers, lashes and brows are still in!

*I recently discovered a lip plumper called Unbranded Beauty check the line out if your lips need a voluptuous fuller looking lift!

 

So go ahead and plump that pout!

Your Vanity…a little space just for YOU!

For those of you who love 💕 makeup and to put on your 💄 makeup this post is for you. For those of you who don’t use much makeup you’ll still enjoy it and learn something new!

Self-care Sunday is all about taking care of yourself and have a little fun doing it!

Now to make your life easier and beauty rituals you need to carve out an area just for you and all your beauties too.

Just make sure you don’t arrange your makeup and skincare directly in the sun ☀️ sunlight. It will ruin your makeup and skincare formulas, lighten your hues, and make your makeup melt too.

I like to separate and organize my makeup brushes, blushes, eyeshadows, 💄 lipsticks and more in a pretty way. I’ve used and repurposed antique plates, tea cups or wine 🍷 goblets. I have also have found some gorgeous display items at TJMaxx, Kirkland’s, Hobby Lobby and more. You DON’T have to spend a fortune $

The important thing is that all your products and things are at your fingertips! Ready when you are.

Another thing I found was from a cocktail 🍸 container. Allow me to explain. I enjoy entertaining with a product called Cocktail Caviar and I love the jar. I couldn’t stand to throw the empty container out. So, I cleaned the jar out and filled with fluffy pink 💕 cotton balls I found! It has a lid so dust doesn’t get on them and keeps them dust free.

See below!

I love Mother Earth 🌍 and have learned to recycle more! It feels good to do it too.

I like to add a fresh seasonal 💐 🌸 🌻 flowers to my space. And I also keep an aloe plant 🌱 on my vanity just in case. Aloes are great for sunburns, curling iron burns and any allergic reactions that come up on the skin!

A hand mirror is always a good idea too! Not just the main one on the wall.

I also keep bottles of sparkling water 💦 and mini bottles of 🍾 Champagne in a mini fridge by my vanity. It is  by Cooluli…I store my face masks,creams,toners,jade roller,agate roller,massage stones,makeup in.

What do you do?

Do you have a special cozy place for you to get all dolled up in? Chat beauty with me. Share with me. I love hearing from you.

What’s TRENDING and HOT NOW!

At the International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa show in Las Vegas I heard as I was going down the hall to teach my class these loud happy chants. “ANAL bleach. Loud and proud …more shouts of the words Anal Bleach and those words along with music went on and on.” I must admit it got my attention.

I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.

I snapped a pic with my iphone of one of the class educators and that is what you see in the pic. While I could not attend the class I had to share with you what I found. The name of the company: Wax Hair Removal Bar. And they a plant 🌱 based wax removal system.

Needing to learn more … I had to explore. This is what I found on their website.

Anal bleaching is one of the most popular skin care requests today.

NOT TO BE DONE at home without the TLC care and attention of a spa /waxing PROFESSIONAL.

The Wax Hair Removal Bar intimate area skin lightening products are all safe and FDA & Health Canada approved. Remember that harsh chemicals such as Hydroquinone or Kojic Acid that can burn, irritate and even hypo-lightening the skin which is not reversable or repairable.

It is actually very common for our “sensitive areas” such as the bikini line, vaginal, underarms and anal area to discolor in both men and women.

Most people find it hard to discuss this topic and that why WAX Hair Removal Bar was born! We have zero issue talking about this topic, in fact its as natural as talking about the weather. 😜 (I inserted this emoji)

The most common reasons for skin discoloration tend to be hormonal that may arise after pregnancy, aging, ethnicity or weight gain. Who knew???😳

Many people think that anal bleaching or skin lighting is only for the adult industry – we are here to crush that rumor. Most of our clients are average everyday blue collar workers both male and female that are looking to enhance the appearance of their bodies and even our discolored skin tone anywhere from inner thighs to the ever so sensitive scrotum . We offer this treatment which can be done in the comfort of your own home or in our establishment without the use of harsh chemicals.

Wax Hair Removal Bar was established in 2008 as the first international full-body waxing salon for both men and women. With locations in both Vancouver, Canada and Las Vegas, Nevada, we have had the pleasure of serving a broad clientele ranging from show business performers to adult entertainers to celebrities and the everyday person that walks through our door just looking to undergo a little maintenance.

We are the official Waxperts to the entertainers of the world-famous male revue, Chippendales. The men of Chippendales entrust only the best in regards to their grooming and manscaping needs, and with regular visits to our Las Vegas locations, we are the establishment that helps keep them looking their best for their performances. Stop on by and you never know who you may run into!

Our Waxperts are highly vetted and trained using our signature and virtually painless waxing technique, allowing you to feel comfortable when grooming your most intimate areas. We produce our own high-quality hard and soft Wax formulas, as well as Wax branded scrubs, body washes, body oils, body lotions, bath salts and collagen eye and lip gels that are available for purchase both online and in store.

We offer full-body unisex waxing services as well as custom facial treatments using only the highest quality, organic ingredients along with our signature and effective anal bleaching service a favorite among entertainers that uses plant 🌱 derived ingredients and never harmful Hydroquinone, Kojic Acid, Mercury or Steroids like many of our competitors.
