When in doubt…throw it out Darlings!

BLOG Thorw it Out 1-2017.JPGAs the new year rings in… and things have calmed a bit think about your beauty and skin care products not just eating better and losing weight!

And now is the hard part. Smell them, shake them and see which you may have to part with.Yes, actually throw out and start fresh! Bad beauty isn’t very pretty and surely not healthy.

As a professional makeup artist I see ALL kinds of cosmetic bags.But some of my clients collections of makeup and their makeup bags frighten me!

  • Her bottle of foundation has turned green along with the beige hue.
  • Another clients  lipsticks had a horrific scent and didn’t glide on like silk.
  • Their eyeliners are so chopped up and the wood base is ready to rip out her cornea anytime.I know this was from not sharpening with the correct pencil sharpener.
  • Another clients nail polishes are turning yellow and green…it makes me want to scream!
  • The blush has such an oil build up on it I could fry french fries on the powder blush from her facial oil.
  • The skin care smells rancid and her sunscreen shakes very watery as it has lost its magic.

The truth is you can’t keep skincare,makeup,nail polish and more forever!!!

I know you love that fave’ shade they discontinued years ago but you’ve got to say goodbye to it. For the sake of your complexion and your health…this is a must.So, now with the  weekend here…perhaps you have some time my dear to play a game I call Let’s Throw It Out!

Restart your beauty game or your face and health won’t look the same.

My New BABY!

WEBSITE SCREEN SHOT 10-2015

We just a launched a beautiful NEW baby girl!

I worked very very hard on her and wanted to share this happy news with you.When you are an indie brand and sweet & petite brand and business owner every little things counts. Things don’t  get handed to you on a silver platter. It takes lots of work.

I loved doing the photo shoot for products and selecting the photos that will be used on the site. I enjoyed piecing the words together in my voice. I wanted this new website to be even better. Still the same name,beautiful brands but even more unique products and ones that mean something.

I cherry pick whatever brands I select to feature and only put my name on products that we LOVE and use and what can they do for you. In this land of lipsticks,lotions and potions you have to stand out in a sea of big names and corporate funding.

It is an online shop to explore new one of a kind finds. Since I’m addicted to lipsticks we’ve added a few new lip products. We have always featured Asian beauty products before they were en vogue. We also love great gift ideas and pretty things with a truly fun twist.

We pride ourselves on no wasteful extra packaging and thing being green is a gorgeous thing! We do not test our products on animals only my beautiful sisters and behind the scenes team. We really care about the consumer and want her to enjoy our products and have beautiful results.

She is still to be continued,adding new things just in time for the holidays and evolve even more. Hope you like her!

Were proud of her. If you are looking for a fun new place to shop…you’ve found her.

Enjoy BROWZ-ing.

Beet Beauty to the rescue~

beet-salad-1Some celebrities use strawberries on their teeth to make them whiter. Allure my fave beauty magazine recommends you try a bag of frozen peas on your eyes for puffiness. Women in Italy love olive oil for hair and skin.

I had to take it a bit further …when I forgot my tinted lipstain yesterday.

I had accidentally left my lipstick at my office on my desk in my cosmetic case.I own a cosmetic candy shoppe and I was lipstickless. I HATE not to have any color on my lips. I mean it drives me crazy!
Worse yet people stop me some days as they recognize me from my beauty & lifestyle segment on TV.

So,I took the beet from my salad and slipped it into a napkin and went into the powder room. I placed the fresh aubergine beet on my lips as if I were applying a lipstick.Then I applied a dash of the new mini pop in your purse Vaseline over the beet stain on my lips.
My lips were kissed with a soft ruby tint and I looked marvelous!

It’s fun to experiment…share with me what recipes you have come up with.
I love hearing from you.
