If you have breast cancer…or any cancer

OPI New Image PASSIONHere are some tips to make you feel a little better and to look beautiful. I hope you enjoy them and will use them.

Your skin will go through many changes. Take time for a quick shopping trip to update your beauty regime.Use a skin care regime that is more hydrating.Chemo and other treatments will make your skin drier.

Even if you are not a lipstick,lip gloss or lip balm girl …you will definitely NEED something on your lips to keep them moisturized. Be READY for kissing and look better too.

There is NOTHING like a little color on your face.
Some days you may not feel like it and must simply stay in bed but the times you feel up to it… It can be as simple as 1,2,3.
You don’t have to use foundation. Use a tinted moisturizer.Perk up your eyes with a little eyeshadow or eyeliner.Add some blush to your face. Forehead,cheeks and chin.If you want the feel of mascara…use CLEAR mascara.

TREAT YOURSELF to something like a luscious pink nail polish like OPI’s MOD FOR YOU!

Use an organic/vegan body lotion or hand cream that makes you feel pretty,smells YUMMY and makes you feel good.If you are not into much fragrance at this time use a fragrance free one or even olive oil or coconut oil will do the trick.

Oh the many moods and ways your body will change.If you are always HOT. I have been hot flashing since I was 5 years old. I am almost always HOT. Try HOT GIRLS PEARLS to keep your body cooler.These beautiful gems around your neck or on your wrists will feel cool and refreshing. So cool I even wear them to the beach for a stroll to keep cool.

Cancer is a sneaky disease and a club I too did not want to join. I did not want to be invited.PLEASE do yourself and your family a favor.Get a skin care exam for a check up all of your body for skin cancer (starting as a teenager)

Get a mammogram if you are of age or your doctor recommended.Preventative maintence makes you prettier and live longer.
Just a reminder MEN get breast cancer too.Remind him to go for a check-up!

Craving fall best of all!

imagesCA3CDK3IDVFFall is on its way…you may not feel it yet but it is about to arrive.
It is a magical time of year and the colors are too! We gradually put away our summer wear and pull out our fall clothes for cooler weather. Look effortless this fall with a few easy pieces in beauty and fashion.

I attended this year’s Fashion Group International fall/winter fashion preview in New York City this past April and my former boss the fabulous designer, Diane Von Furstenberg,hosted it and moderated a panel.I can’t get enough of her and her fabulous fashions.
I got to get a sneak peek into what colors of make-up and fashions you will be FALLing in love with.

The colors of the season are a mixed beauty bag of tricks!
Here are a few must haves to update your face wardrobe with:

Skin has never been more in! Take care of it! There are so many new products and formulas. There is really no excuse to why you can’t. Looking good takes a little work but is so worth it.

Ready-to-wear shades for fall and winter are: The color of wine will be sublime along with warm nude, pink fuschia and classic crimson red for your lips.

Eyes can be a mix and match blend of black, white, honey, soft violet, merlot, deep blue, gray, glam gold, and sterling silver. A mixture of matte and shimmer on the face will help you look up-to-date.

Dark, vamp, smoky eyes are so yesterday. Instead define your eyes with a shadow, rich or bright gem colored pencils, and a touch of black or brown under them. Black liner is a staple in my makeup kit, although jewel tone shades are so much more fun and pretty! Some hues I like to use are teal, blue, purple, and green. These shades also make the whites of the eyes look brighter.

The perfect eyebrow is always in fashion. Consult a brow stylist for a personalized, updated look.If you happen to live in sunny Jacksonville Florida;John Brent at Chocolate Blonde Salon is the guy for you! If you happen to live in LA…Damone Roberts is the man!

For the daring, Paperself Lashes come in a decorative array of designs. For example, lashes in the shape of a butterfly, a bird, or even a fish. Faux lashes with tiny gemstones are trending now too.

Lasting Shellac and Gel nails are in the limelight. Manicures and pedicures have never been more popular. It’s a way to add a little color to your life; the shades and possibilities are endless.From OPI to Revlon you can rock some amazing shades.

Hair color trends “WOW” in shades like copper fields,winter peach and toasted grains…Aveda has some amazing new hues.

Men continue to be getting into taking better care of their appearance. From teeth, whitening at home systems, like Supersmile, to getting deep cleansing facials and having their eyebrows groomed. It is a new beauty frontier for men.

For clothing & accessories:
Clothing colors:Mykonos blue, samba, acai, linden green, koi, turbulence gray and of course the color of the year emerald, all predicted by Pantone the color experts are hot this year.

Have the courage to wear anything that is animal print or anything with it in it, like a scarf, shoes, purse or earrings! Think Shad Khan and the Jaguars!

Brighten up your complexion with winter white, shiny materials and sequins.

Out with sky-high heels and into sensible heights that are pretty for our back and feet!

Hose is making a comeback! Warm up to nude hose thanks to the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. In addition, black opaque, artsy patterns and textured hose are in for this fall/winter.

Men are seeing a need to be more fashionable too. Not the usual safe dress shirt and khaki pants. Guys are taking a hint from the men of Italy. A fearless way of dressing that includes bare ankles (no socks), slim suits and unique color combinations for shirts, jackets and ties.

So express yourself, take care of yourself, and remember to be yourself…and you will always be in fashion.

This weekend …Don’t Forget those lips!

NB8J8513

It is getting steamy and in some places it is plain HOT and humid. When you venture out and about this long and wonderful Memorial day weekend…PACK the lip balm. Say Hello to Handsome and to Gorgeous soft and sun protected LIPS!Don’t forget your children too~

Skin cancer is on the rise even on the lips…BE SUN SMART and have a fabulous holiday and fun whatever you do!

Day 24 to more beautiful skin!

Sun spots according to most women and men aren’t very pretty.

Days in the sun,pregnancy or prescription medicine can give those little or big brown spots and splotches. In the Orient women dislike them so much they get skin whitening facials to eliminate them and to lighten the skin.
The bright news is you can fade those spots over time. The magic ingredient is Hydroquinone,and should be dabbed directly onto brOwn spots every night.I have one pesky spot on my upper right cheek and I use this nightly. I do not apply it right before I go to sleep, I apply it an hour before after I have washed my face and give it a chance to do its magic to help lighten my spot. This way I don’t rub my face into my pillow case and the cream is gone. I recommend this cream to all my clients who are concerned about this spotty issue.

See a dermatologist for this remedy for spot beauty or your spa. You’ll look awesome before you know it!
