Shot of Pretty!

Today I featured on TV today this awesome drink I discovered at my last beauty conference. It is called YANA! The booth was filled with girls serving up this cocktail of daily collagen shots and I so had to see what the BUZZ at the booth was all about.

As you know I have blogged about other wellness supplements and more. But when I took one look at the CEO and creator’s skin I had to know more.Her name is Janna Ronert.Her kind spirit and  wealth of knowledge made our meeting even better. i am  happy with and take care of my skin but I know we can always make it better. I have now started using this revolutionary beauty cocktail no happy hour needed!

What IS collagen? It is the protein in our connective tissue that makes up 75% of our skin.Our bodies naturally produce this but as we age we start to lose it.By adding this liquid supplement helps you with up to 63% reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

Did you know women produce less collagen  than men? By the age of 50 a woman has naturally lost almost half of the collagen from her skin.I say…

If your skin is not looking as good as you would like it too… maybe it is time to discover Yana!

A Chat with Makeup Artist James Vincent

I recently had a chance to bring a fellow PROfessional makeup artist James Vincent to the TV station with me as he was in sunny Florida to guest speak at The Makeup Show in Orlando last weekend. I enjoyed chatting with him and got his take on what is going to be hot for this spring 2016 on the makeup scene.James Vincent photo

In his 20 years in the beauty industry James has worked with Lady Gaga,our current President,Courtney Love,Liv Tyler,CNN and Reese Witherspoon to name a few.

He recognizes that innovation and technology in makeup and skin care are ever changing and that the absence of animal testing is key.

Here is a peek at his HOT for spring list that we will be wearing this season to come.

SKIN CARE: Cleanse,polish and protect are key steps to healthy skin.

Make-Up:

Sun kissed eye lip and cheek: Peach and pink will be your go to shades for the season.

A little bit of bronzer goes a long way! However apply it only wear the sunshine usually hits your face.And he recommends you mix it with a dash of your fave blush.Don’t just use it alone.

Black Liquid Liner is always in.

Candy Apple Lips that won’t land on your hips! James recommends a blue based red gloss on top of and only in the center and another shade of red lipstick.

Blue Eyeliner and Eye shadow: Blue eyeliner and shadows get a bad wrap.but says these shades of blue really lift up the eyes and brightens up the face too. He suggests you use pencil eyeliners over liquids or creams for liner as they are easier to apply.

GLOW on: He likes Scott Barnes Body Bling (JLO’s makeup artist) as well as Melanie Mills (A La Dancing with the Stars and more) Gleam body shimmer. they both illuminate  the skin on face and body.

I hope you enjoyed meeting this makeup artist and stay tuned for more interviews and tips!

 

 

 

Makeup Lesson in session!

I love doing makeup lessons!  I DON’T CALL THEM MAKEOVERS! Erase that  word.

I love sharing my beauty secrets and kiss and telling new trend tricks!cropped-img_7498.jpg

My job takes me on the road a lot but when in town I go to my happy place. My fave place to be my office and private  makeup studio in sunny Florida.

When you’re thinking Valentine’s day gifts for your mom,sister,daughter or BFF think the gift of beauty!

Not just roses, a box of chocolates and perfume.Allow me to explain.

I have seen it all. I recently  gave a makeup lesson to a woman in her seventies who never used any makeup in her life and all because she was too shy to call and book an appointment for a makeup lesson or shop the pretty girls at the cosmetic counters (her words not mine). How sad…

After seeing me on TV she decided I was her girl and that it was a must to put me on her bucket list!

Last year I made up a woman in her thirties who booked a makeup session with me for a party she was going to. She kept on both staring at me and kept her head down. She did not want to look in the mirror. Next, she started to cry and tell me how ugly she was and that she felt so unattractive it was hard to look at herself in a mirror. This was hard for me to see. I gave her a tissue a big hug and told her all the beauty I saw in her face and body. ALL TRUTH…nothing to make her feel better.

She sat up taller,stopped crying and started to listen to my words. She felt amazing and looked it too. She loved that I gave her a natural soft look. Not like the over the top glam faces on social media. She commented on how I LISTENED to her and did what she wanted not a look I wanted. She flew on on wings of beauty after our session and felt like a million. It was an epic moment for me too.

I LOVE making women feel marvelous. Even men! Golf professionals,tennis players or sportscasters or men want to look good too!

Wherever you live…think about treating yourself or someone else to this feel good gift.

The way you see yourself and your attitude is EVERYTHING!
