On the Hunt for a New Mascara this summer???

Maybe this mascara is for you! Blinc_Mascara-web

If you are looking for a mascara that doesn’t run and give you a black ring around your eye running down toward your cheeks too. Try Blinc mascara. It is a no-smudge,no-hassle mascara.

Instead of painting your eye lashes you tube them with tiny water-resistant tubes around your lashes. Not a conventional mascara. Once applied,this mascara tubes and binds your lashes and cannot and does not run,smudge,clump or flake,even if you cry at your wedding,workout,jog or rub your eyes!!!

You simply remove it with a luke warm washcloth and no makeup remover needed.

Today I am wearing the deep purple. I LOVE the way it brightens my eye and take away a tired dark circled appearance.

Celebrities use it and you will love it too…if you want easy to remove and longer lasting smudge free mascara.

Whose your go to beauty brand?

OPI -Sky fall 10-2012Whose your go to brand?

A bright shade of nail polish with a cool name? Could it be a Maybelline mascara you used for years?  A yummy luxurious body or hand cream?

A foundation that covers all your flaws or perhaps it is a lipstick shade that just applying it on your lips sends you to the moon.

I’d love to know.

Or Is it not a brand at all?

This mascara is the bomb!

Cherry Blooms

Unlike me it seems every single girl or woman I meet love WEARING mascara. And many I meet are on the hunt for it!
Constantly on a quest for flirty,fabulous,longer lashed eyes!

The reason I say unlike me is that due to allergies I cannot wear many brand mascaras as well as enjoy fake eyelashes as the glue (no matter what brand) annoys my eyes. So, my go to fave product has always been lipstick!

However, if you are seeking that mascara of all mascaras! I received a package in the mail and had to share with you.

It is called Cherry Blooms…and like a cherry tree blooms from tiny flowers to cherries your lashes will bloom.There used to be a large cherry tree in the backyard of my grandmother’s home and I always admired their beautiful journey and blooms.
So, getting back to the mascara there is this saucy Aussie woman who loves to invent things and she came out with this mascara.
They call them lash extensions that you BRUSH ON. no fuss,no glue, no mess.
The mascara is a two step process which I first thought might be a long task especially on the go.
First you apply the gel from a wand, then you apply the black fibers (which are the lash magic to me) and then a coat of the gel to set.

On clean eyelashes with (no other mascara necessary) I couldn’t wait to try and see what volume of lashes I would see as my eyelashes have never been long looking nor defined. My husband’s lashes are what women would envy and he doesn’t even use an eyelash curler not fair.I also waited a few hours to see if my eyes would be allergic or puff up or itch after a coat of the mascara set.
Well, everything went well no swell,no itch no whining on my part.

Longer lashes in less than 60 seconds! My lashes looked AMAZING! I never had such full and beautiful lashes. Best of all they did not crunch. Do you know what I mean by that? You know the feel when you put on several coats of mascara and the layers feel like they are mini tree branches that will snap off? This mascara does not do that.

Great for ladies with allergies,who wear contacts and who want to look good without a TON of time and layered application. It is a really fast process.

The benefits of this product I read online are:

All non-toxic ingredients.Stimulates lash growth,as a good quality beeswax helps cells regenerate faster.Anti-bacterial properties so it doesn’t breed bacteria and has a longer shelf life. Moisturizes those lashes.Lasts longer then other pop up copy cat brands!
LASH LOVERS UNITE!
If you want to look like yourself only better and like the look of fuller,longer or false lashes…you NEED this! It is the bomb!

Makeup Tips for Tweenagers and Teens

kelllllllllllllli2When it comes to makeup Tweens and Teens I know you want to start wearing makeup a lot sooner than when I was growing up! While I love MAKEUP and own a beauty candy shoppe …my message to you is to embrace your face! Don’t rush! Live in the moment and enjoy your beauty and the beauty of growing up today.

Here are a few tips and tricks to remember:

SUNSCREEN is a girl’s best friend.

Cleaning your face at night is a MUST.(Even if you don’t wear makeup.)Don’t go to sleep with makeup on EVER.

Learn to LOVE water.It is so good for your health and your skin.If you are not wild about it make spa water.It is so much fun to make at home.New recipe to follow in next blog.

YOU are what you eat…try and eat a balanced diet.And a cupcake sometime.

Take care of your skin.Don’t use deodorant bars on your delicate face.Use a soap bar that is made for the complexion.I love home-made bars by crafters like a skin Clarity bar that gently cleans and exfoliates.
If you have normal to very dry skin don’t use this type bar. Go for a goat’s milk hydrating bar or something like a Dove soap.

A face mask is a must. I love to wash away impurities and clean my skin with a clay based mask.

If you are a 8,9,10,11 or 12 years old:SORRY…you don’t need to wear ANY makeup except a lip gloss,balm or lip conditioner. YOU are beautiful they way you are.

If you 13 or 14 years old you can use a soft lipstick or lip gloss and soft shade of blush is fine.

If you are 15,16,:a pretty lipstick,gloss,blush and a kiss of a neutral pretty eyeshadow is fine.Mascara for special occassions.Clear mascara is another option for brows and lash definition.

NO FOUNDATION for any age below 15 years old. Yes,really.Your lashes are beautiful.

18 is the perfect age to start to wear: A dash of tinted moisturizer,beauty balm,or a soft application of foundation is fine.A lipstick or gloss,one pretty eyeshadow to highlight the eyes. Mascara in the form of tubes.(easy to remove and does not run) A kiss of blush to the apple of your cheeks.
Rice powder to set your makeup or a setting spray.

Beauty Note: STAY AWAY FROM black mascara or liner unless it is in the evening or if you want to make your eyes look defined but smaller.Opt for a navy,teal,eggplant mascara and they will always make your eyes look bigger.Don’t overdo mascara and look like tarantella eyes.It is not a pretty look.

Please note: As a professional makeup artist I highly recommend and am in beauty love with the magic of rice powder. It tones down shine,makes your makeup last longer,is fabulous for girls or guys with acne or even a mature woman.

Concealer or cover-up is optional at your age. If you do need it buy it in the form of a lipstick tube.Easy to apply and is used for undereye circles and for blemishes.

Don’t wear chipped nail polish.Keep those nails looking good with a sheer metallic shade.These shades don’t show chips.
Or try a bold or hot new color.

Go for a makeup lesson and have someone teach you the RIGHT way to take care of your skin and how to do your makeup for every day.

Look your age! Don’t do your makeup over the top or worse yet be a CAKE FACE!

You are only YOUNG and your age once! Enjoy the ride.
Have fun and kiss & makeup!

The Beauty of NYC

IMG_7733r Candy Girl Collection…Is that there are all kinds of people,food and a fun fast paced life. I love the electric energy and hustle back home in NYC.

Last weekend New York got even more beautiful when the ladies and gentlemen in the business of beauty came from all over the globe for the one and only International Beauty Show (hair and nails with a touch of makeup),The International Esthetics, Cosmetics and Spa Conference (skin, makeup and wellness) They came to see …What’s New, What’s Hot and What’s Next. I was asked to guest speak again. What a great class. Seeing spa and salon owners sitting at the edge of their seat ready to learn something new and to hear what I have to say too is wonderful. I so love teaching business owners and professionals like these.

The hair show is a step on the wild side. Fantasy meets fun equals latest trends. The spa and wellness side is filled with latest skin care, skin tech tools, anti-aging and wellness.

This Spring 2013 is an anything goes kinda season. COLOR is everywhere! Color in hair with dye and with hair chalk like we played with chalk on the sidewalk when we were kids the hair is chalked with fantasy colors that wash out. Colorful shades to dye for!

SKIN IS SO IN and skin care is #1 if you want your makeup to look flawless…try skin care products with new ingredients like pearl power,bamboo,caffeine,argon oil,shea butter and jojoba to name a few. Clarisonic sonic cleanser is still rocking the skin care industry.

Nails, fingers and toes take center stage! Choose from shades like cotton candy, lovely lilac,light gray,pure white,goldfinger,silver,coral and all shades of green to blue! There are beads,stones and crystals added. The nails are like works of art. Truly NOT your grandma’s nail polish!

MAKEUP is both pretty and pretty wild!There are a rainbow of shades to choose from to brighten up your eyes and define them too.Eyeliner comes in all forms from gerl liners, to liquid pen liners.The smoky eye is more colorful and not only black and the cat eye is colorful too.

Want long rapidly growing lashes? Try Rapid Lash they say you’ll have lush lashes in no time.

Mascara TUBES are still in and give a soft and natural lash look.Not spider girl eyes.

Paint your pout with HAPPY shades of all things pink and flirty coral shades.LIPSTICK has never been hotter.Gloss is still shiny fun and Lip Tars with rich pigments add mega rich color to the lips. Lip stains rule!

Speaking of lips…you can’t have a supersmile and sexy lips without Supersmile toothpaste. It whitens and brightens your teeth to let your gorgeous lipstick shine through.Dental care is just as important as your lipstick!

COLOR is alive and kicking in fashion too! I shopped till I dropped and window shopped the famous Barney’s New York, Henri Bendel,Bloomingdale’s,Macys,Saks Fifth Avenue,Bergdorf’s and the small sweet boutiques all over the city. If you haven’t been to NYC and only watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade on TV…you MUST add it to your list of things to do and places to see!

Well, what are you waiting for? Grab your purse and get going.Shop on and color your faces,fingers and toes with some FUN! Find something fashionable in a new mint,coral or blue sea shades and ENJOY!
