Backstage Beauty

IMG_4365.jpg

This morning I took the TV viewers on River City Live to a Backstage BEAUTY Pass… to Fashion week.

Makeup artists who work behind the scenes work tirelessly painting,primping,pampering and and above all hydrating the skin!

It is all about the skin. If the skin does not look it’s best the makeup won’t look the best.

TwinMedix: These essentials got some complexions on the right track with an advanced skin care collection!

Embryolisse: A French delight that models and makeup artist can’t get enough of for gorgeous skin.

Danessa Myricks Beauty: Her Beauty Oils and Dew Balm gives the skin the glowiest look!

Waleda Skin Food: Is another moisturizing lotion that some models request.

Sheet masks from Korea were yet another instant prettier skin fix!

Jade and  Rose Quartz gemstone eye and face rollers: were used to relax the face and make the makeup glide on like silk after a moisturizer or serum was applied.

I’ve even seen silver spoons used in an ice bath and applied to the face for puffy complexions at fashion shows! Or the makeup artists use spoons dry and at room temperature ones are used to curl the eyelashes.stainless steel spoon

Rosebud Salve: A pro FAVE’ was used for unruly tresses,chapped lips and to give the skin a glowy look. This is in my makeup kit too.

The NO MAKEUP Makeup Look made a big appearance BUT it takes makeup and lots of work to achieve the look.

Aquaphor is another lip and face product that is seen behind the scenes.

Makeup Brushes: There are plenty used and  in all shapes and sizes. There is a brush and sponge for every part of the face and body. Powder puffs rule too!

One of brands of nail polish used was Essie. Who doesn’t love it? One of the hot hues used was Licorice. A deep gray black shade of sexy.

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.

Mask those tired feet!
