EGGstra, Eggstra Face Mask!

photo EGGS

Do you want to brighten up your complexion?

One of my dear friends who happens to be of Asian descent shared this recipe with me.She swears by it’s skin brightening! I also find it refreshing and skin tightening.

What you will need is:

2 raw egg whites

2 tablespoons off fresh lemon juice

2 tablespoons organic olive oil

Mix all of the above and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

Clean your face,apply a generous layer of the above mixture on your face as if you were icing a cake. Your face is the cake. Then let it dry completely.

Afterwards remove the mask with a warm washcloth and wash your face with cool water.

Next apply a moisturizer.

I recommend you use this at least once a week maybe two.

After a month you will really notice brighter skin!

This is mask is good for normal to combination skin.

HOP TO IT, Gorgeous and enjoy looking at your skin in the mirror.

PS

Stay tuned for my EARTH DAY gorgeous giveaway next weekend.

One lucky BLOG reader will win!

A Makeup artist’s …MUST HAVE!

On movie sets,TV shows we love,photo shoots in Hollywood, New York and Las Vegas… there is a big beauty buzz on this invention.Created by a woman and a PROfessional Makeup Artist!

While I never practiced using my hand as a makeup application pallette many women and men in the industry do.I am featuring these on my beauty and lifestyle segment today on a daytime TV show I do called The Chat seen on NBC12 in sunny Florida!

I want to bring attention to this brand as I really think it makes a lot of sense and is much needed. I don’t want somebody to make up my face with their lunch, body heat and more coming out of their pores. I know you know what I mean.Think about it. It is so much ore sanitary to use this Hygienic hand pallette skin shield by Hygeniskin.Latex free. It is essential. Effortless clean up and healthier for you and your clients health too.

The most amazing part of this brand is beside the invention itself is the woman behind the brand.Unfortunately she is no longer with us.She died of cancer but her husband is carrying on her brand and legacy.I want to help George keep it going and alive too !

As seen in the TREND REPORT by American Spa magazine as one of the hottest brands for 2017.

So, if you are  a makeup artist,studying to be one or simply care about being more sanitary when doing your makeup….you need this product in your life!

My Take on the 2017 Golden Globes…

I was called out of town so I could not post about the Golden Globes until now. BUT on Sunday I was glued to the TV screen.One hand on the TV remote and another with my cell phone.

From the Opening of the show…Jimmy Fallon just doesn’t fit this role to me.

I was Facebooking,Tweeting and simply could not get to Instagraming.I took notes feverishly so I could remember it all while taking it all in for my blog post.Who worked  the best look to you?

Let’s hear it for the GUYS!

Ryan Gosling looked dapper in white and black.Every hair in place and skin that glowed.

Ryan Reynolds seems to always looks good.

Justin Timberlake as ALWAYS looked amazing. And what can’t this guy do?

SLY Stallone is aging with handsome grace.So love him!

Denzel, he always does it for me.Just the sound of his voice.

Never get tired of Brad Pitt he looked handsome and his skin had a golden hue.

However, for a lot of the men the MEN’s  grooming was no where to be found with bushy beards and scruffy looks.Some may be preparing or in the middle of shooting a movie but it appeared scruffy beards were in! Or the actors simply didn’t care.They may have just liked scruffy look!

As for the ladies…

Tracee Ellis Ross looked amazing and always rocks that CLASSIC red lip! Didn’t she?

Goldie Hawn always a knock out for her age.

Jessica Chastain  breasty and gorgeous  in that  blue hue!

Nicole Kidman,Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon never disappoint!

Sarah Jessica Parker aka SJP disappointed me with her hot mess dress and the hair was so off too!

Meryl Streep’s dress reminded me of her Christmas day outfit in all the shades of it sparkling in red,silver and green. I don’t know if she dresses herself every year she attends these type shows but she is never on point.

Can we talk about …

 

GLEAM BODY RADIANCE

Priyanka Chopra’s PERFECTLY contoured & bodacious breasts? I think she is gorgeous! I wish I looked like her.

Peaches and cream skinned Emma Stone looked awesome from head to toe.

I always get a kick out of Amy Schumer.

Naomi Campbell rocked that pink dress and glistened.

YELLOW and golden nude gowns were popular hues!

Fun BEAUTY FACTS…

Viola Davis not only wore that happy and sexy yellow dress… She also rocked a lotion called GLEAM by Melanie Mills in a deep gold shade on her body. Oh and if you like her makeup as much as I did…Autumn Moultrie did the gorgeous makeup!!!

Kristen Bell wore a BUTT LIFT undergarment and flaunted it on Instagram.

Kayleen McAdams did the makeup on Sofia Vergara.While her nude like dress fit her like a glove it reminded me of many others there and that is trending.

Lots of the celebrities hair locks were styled by celebrity stylists with Pantene hair products.

While L’oreal was a sponsor and the products were used on some of the celebrities.

But I wondered where all those makeup artists were with the infamous powder puff! This very shiny face look was seen on many celebrities.Guys and gals! Did you notice that?

I wanted to jump in on my TV screen and powder their noses and faces.

A popular eyelash used was by KISS lashes…lash couture a $6.00 beauty buy!

They sipped Moet rose at the globes but on some they needed to gloss up and lipstick up because the lipstick looked lack luster or barely there after sipping.No touch ups? Where was the Glam Squad or a  touch up of lipstick and powder in their purse.

If I wasn’t going out of town I would have posted more to this blog but packing my luggage was a priority. I hope you like my take on the Globes and a few beauty secrets along the way.I enjoy watching these shows and going to the movies.But always remember…celebrities are just like you and like me. The difference is they have a job with a huge salary and they get paid to look healthy, glam and good. Don’t worship them.We really don’t even know them. We know the characters they play.

They are actors and they ACT for a living!

 

Oh happy day!

Sugar Me up!

photo SUGAR ME UP.JPGTis’ the season for sugar and  all the tempting sweets that come with it!

It is also the time of the year to kiss lots and the weather can give us the driest lips!

I like to make and use this D.I.Y. when I ma ready to KISS under the mistletoe and my lips get dry from rapid change in the weather  or times your lips simply need a moisturizing plumping boost.

My recipe is simple~

1 Teaspoon of honey (organic is my fav’)

1 Teaspoon of brown sugar (organic is my fav’)

Stir the two together for a lip softening treatment at home! Apply to clean lips and rub back and forth with your ring finger. Leave on at least 3 minutes and repeat rubbing process again.

Rinse with warm water on a wash cloth or flat round cotton pad.

Apply your fav’ lip balm afterwards.

Kiss the night away and ring in the new year with soft lips!

 

The gift of …The Perfect Red Lipstick!

cropped-hot-lips.jpg

Last night I attended my first Christmas party of the season with my husband for his business. Over cocktails I quickly discovered women who loved my lips and wanted to know how can they too create the perfect red lip!

I thought you’d like to know this too.So here you go!

The Perfect Tips for Red Luscious Lips!

  • You must start fresh with clean hydrated lips.
  • Apply my  Kissy Lips lip exfoliating Treatment or make a mixture of brown sugar and honey for your lips.
  • Apply my Perfect day Lipstick base
  • Optional:Add  a coat of  China Doll lipstain next to make the color last even longer.It will stain the lips with a rosy stain and make the red hue cling better too.
  • Apply red lip liner or an invisible lip liner that is transparent yet locks color within the lip line.
  • Apply a luscious red lipstick or a red liquid lipstick (they are all the rage).
  • Blot your lips with a fresh tissue or blotting paper.(not powdered just plain)
  • Apply a second coat if you wish to make your pout look bolder.
  • DON’T rub your lips together. Little old ladies do that!

*To make this look even sexier like the makeup artists do in a VICTORIA SECRET runway shows or magazine shoot.Add a dash of a silver or gold lipstick Next add a super shiny gloss in the center of the lips for a sexy highlighted glow. A shimmery way to glow and make the lips look fuller!

You are ready to…Paint the town red,Gorgeous!

A red lipstick & gloss make the perfect gift for your bestie or family member!  Not all gifts need to be costly and over the top. Fill them in Christmas stocking and put a bow on it and give. At this time of year…everyone seems to pull out their best red lipstick,shoes, purse or dress. Make the lips the center of attention.
