Essie’s Fall Nail Polish Features a Totally New “Velvet” Formula — StyleCaster

Get excited…Ladies!  Oh the beauty of fall!

Recently on Twitter, I saw a New York City news account post how many weekends of summer are left until it’s officially fall. The replies to this were savage. It seems people don’t want to be reminded that summer is almost over. Well, I’m sorry in advance but Essie’s Fall 2019 nail polish needs to…

How to use a LIP 💋 mask

I love love love  the new gel and tissue masks for your lips in those adorable lip shapes. I use them at night before I go to bed 🛌 and when I feel like I need a hydrating lift to my lips for an evening out.

Here is how I use them.

Take your time. Don’t rush. Enjoy 😊!

  • WASH your hands well.
  • Cleanse and tone your skin.
  • Brush your teeth.
  • Wash your lips.
  • Pull the lip mask out of package with tweezers. (Or clean fingers)
  • Apply it to your lips and lightly press and pat the mask down.Make sure it is laying smooth.
  • Leave the mask on your lips for at least 15 minutes.
  • BEFORE you remove the mask … pat the remaining moisture like residue on your lip area. Do not wash your face or lips afterwards. Blot lips dry with tissue if you’d like.
  • If your lips are extra dry and flaky… Condition your lips 👄 with a lip conditioner if you’d like or simply rest.

Sweet 😴 Dreams! … and enjoy softer sexier healthier looking lips,Beauties!Beauties!

PS

If you smoke,vape or sunbathe…you’ll love the skin softening benefits of these KBeauty lip masks too!

Neon Eyeliners That Eliminate the Need for Any Other Makeup — StyleCaster

Just back from Las Vegas and trying to get over jetlag! So much to share with you about my trip but first sharing this post filled with all things NEON EYEliner colors!

I so love neon and happy to share this post from StyleCaster on neon eyeliners! Do you love color like I do too?

 

The all-too-familiar “less is more” mantra applies to most aspects of life, including my beauty routine. Actually, I won’t tip-toe around this: “less is more” can apply to every single part of my day-to-day; from the makeup (or lack thereof) on my face to the Vans on my feet, despite having 50 pairs of other…

After a day at the beach or in the sun!

It isn’t all you expected is it? The first few  or time back in the sun after winter is tough. on your skin. Especially when you don’t bring your BFF’S. A sunscreen,sunglasses and lip conditioner. SUNBURN that dreaded look and feeling after a day or two in the sun. You aren’t sitting pretty!

The #1. thing you should have done was throw out last years or expired sunscreen or sunblocks. You need a fresh one! Please don’t forget to reapply not just apply once and think you are all set. You’re NOT!

2. Protect those PEEPERS and wear sunglasses. Squinting causes wrinkles and your eyes themselves need sun protection. Your lips need some love to with a lip balm.

3. Once you’re burned by the sun and outdoors…you need to rescue your skin! But calm down I’ve got your back!

Try a yogurt …plain fluffy Greek yogurt. You can make your own (I will share how you on another TV blog) get some store bought. Apply to your skin like a face mask. A thin coat will do. leave on and rinse well. Add moisture back to your skin! Apply your fav’ moisturizer and face cream.

*Yogurt is a legendary and easy remedy.

4. COOL the burn on your skin with milk on a flat cotton pad or gauze.

5. IF you own an aloe plant…grab a leaf. Cut it open and apply the gel inside on the skin. Great for peeling and itchy skin too. Or fill an ice cube tray with aloe vera gel (found in drug store) and freeze. Roll a cube on the burn and cool down that skin! Aloe plants make great plants for outside your kitchen door. OR in your home. Easy to maintain. Good for kitchen burns while cooking too.

6. Add moisture back to your skin! Soothe your skin further by applying your fav’ moisturizer and face cream. My latest aloe find is Therapispa aloe lotion for the body and the face cream.

I hope and know you will find these skin rescues for your skin useful.

Enjoy a healthy dose of the sun 🌞 this summer!

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…

Skin Care Alert!!!

DERMATOLOGY IMG_1534.jpg

I saw my dermatologist for a tiny spot on the side of my nose.I had waited almost a  month to see her as she could not see me sooner. The spot was red and came out of nowhere. I was really scared as I did not want cancer on my nose or anywhere for that matter. I have had so many clients lately who have had skin cancer on their face and it was so bad reconstructive surgery was necessary. So sad,painful and expensive too.

When I finally got in for my appointment she examined me from head to toe. When she got to my nose and I watched her look strategically on my nose with a little unit with light. She gave me the news! I was on pins and needles!

Th condition I have is not rare. It isn’t cancer it according to her is a tiny scratch on my skin from OVER scrubbbing or exfoliating. In my quest for healthy looking clean skin I scratched my skin in the process. OH HAPPY DAY. I flew out of her office with wings on.

LESSON learned? Ladies be careful don’t be so rough with your skin! Don’t over scrub,exfoliate,buff and more. Be gentle with the skin on your face and body.

Be in tune with your body and skin.

Develop a relationship with a dermatologist.You don’t want to wait until you have a problem. You want to have someone you can count on and call on.I get checkups every six months after having had skin cancer. A board certified dermatologist can see you for blemishes,sun spots,moles and serious conditions like pre-cancer and skin cancer.Get to the root pof the problem before it get worse or hopeless.

Cold & Flu Season Beauty🤧

I woke up the other day and felt awful…like a Mack truck ran over me. I was clammy,runny nose,sore throat and had laryngitis.

I was forced by my body to stay in bed several days. I hadn’t felt like this in a year. What I know for sure is when you’re sick at home and stuck in bed… you need to really rest and take care of yourself! And do something nice for yourself.

And if you don’t have energy to even take a quick shower or bath 🛀 just do a few things to make yourself FEEL better.

Here are a few tips…

Don’t get dehydrated. Drink plenty of liquids.

*Fresh squeezed juice is a nice bonus. If you can’t juice 🥤 your own. Try and keep a store bought one in your freezer or refrigerator.

Refresh your skin with a cozy hot towel soaked with a dash of Vick’s vapor rub. Place over your nose and on your chest. Help those nasal passages & chest congestion.

Light a flameless 🕯 candle. Or better yet purify the air by lighting a Himalayan salt stone lamp. They light 💡 up the room with such a pretty, peaceful, ambience. And nowadays are cheap but bring so much joy!

Place your feet 🦶 in white cotton socks with your fave hand 🖐 & body lotion. Or another tip is to slather on a coat of Vick’s Vapo rub. Then place those tired feet in fresh white socks. Feels 😊 so good! Really helps with softening the feet and they say helps your cold leave faster. It also makes your feet feel good and skin softer too.

Turn on a white noise machine or listen to music in your chair or bed.

Open the curtains and let the SUN 🌞Shine in! Let the sunlight warm you up. The light will lift your spirits too.

Put on a 💄 lipstick, gloss or lip conditioner and you’ll be feeling better before you know it.

Guys you need a lip balm too! When you have a cold or the flu your lips will get dry. Very dry. Maybe even peel and flake.

Keep the skin on your face moist with a beauty oil or moisturizer. Sneezing, wiping, or blowing your nose can make your nose,face and cheeks red and raw. And dry! Keep that skin soft!

This might be a good time to put on a sunless tanner…while you’re stranded at home.It might even make you feel better. It def will make you look better.

Spray your pillow cases and sheets with a mix of 95 distilled or tap water and a few drops of lavender or Tea Tree oil.

A hydrating KBeauty sheet mask is another good thing you could do to make yourself feel better.

If you have a fever… straighten the bed. Fluff up the pillows and sprinkle your fave body powder on the sheets.

Brush your hair with a dry 🧴 shampoo. Keep it handy at your bedside.

Place your journal,prayer book,a good book,magazines or adult coloring book 📚 near you. Place a mini notepad 📝 and pen by you too . You may think of things you need to buy or to do once you’re up to it.

Keep things close so you don’t have to get up and down from the 🛌 bed.

Chicken soup or Chinese hot and sour soup work wonders.

Feel hot and clammy? Got a fever? I love to make DIY Gatorade Ice cubes. Make ice cubes and suck on them! Cooling soothing electrolytes and they keep you from dehydrating too.

Ice cream 🍨 or an ice cream float is cool and soothing on sore throat! This is no time to diet. Indulge!

You know even if you get the flu shot it does not prevent you from getting a severe cold and more.

I’m just glad it’s over for me and I’m starting to feel like myself again. Something is going around. Get ready! Take care of yourself. I hope my blog post helps.

The NYFW Fall-Winter 2019 Beauty Looks That Convinced Me to Start Wearing Makeup Again — StyleCaster

Which ones your fave…and giving you inpsiration for a new look this year?

I love quie a few.

 

Though I’m not particularly obsessed with celebrity culture, I am admittedly one of those people who can still go on Instagram and start liking popular posts without going overboard. In short, that means a red carpet moment or the occasional Shade Room update isn’t completely off the table. And come February, my thumbs are working…
