Ancient Chinese Beauty…

I am an all American girl that happens to be Eurasian and my husband says I am a Combination Platter off the Chinese Take Out Menu. People ALWAYS ask me what is my nationality. Even more when I moved from up North to sunny Florida. When I moved here for my husband I was so in love ❤️ I forgave Florida for the HOT 🥵 temperatures and the horrific humidity. But as time went by I came to the conclusion I hate the heat and my makeup melting. I also noticed brides and bridal parties hated it too. So, I pulled out my little box of love for my complexion and made them look amazing. This box is my makeup savior and go to. I have used it on my face since I was a teen and now on my clients for TV work, red carpet beauty moments, photo shoots and for my brides and bridal parties. I use it on men too!

It is an Ancient Chinese Beauty secret handed down from generation to generation.

What is it?

A white looking brownie (yes like the Brownie we eat). It is a hard cake that becomes loose when stroked and applied with a Kabuki powder brush.

Beautiful Benefits?

  • It is feather light powder that makes your makeup last longer.
  • Makes your colors remain true especially when you have issues with your makeup turning colors and helps them remain true.
  • Great for oily skin and complexions with a bit of acne
  • Tones down shine!
  • Sets your makeup!

But wait there’s MORE!

When I make up my face or a client’s face and I accidentally put a bit more blush on or eye shadow too overpowering or doesn’t look right….I simply take a brush,dip into my rice powder and clean up,soften and blend it out.

Oh and not only does it look great on brides and photographs nicely. It also is great for women of a certain age who get steamy and hot flash! Calms the heat and the powder cools the skin with a soft matte finish.

If  YOU or your friends makeup is missing that little something or you crave all things Asian Beauty and or something new this is for YOU!

I don’t think I could live without IT alongside a gorgeous 💄 Lipstick of course!

Unexpected Ways Celebrities Use Aquaphor in Their Beauty Routines — StyleCaster

Life and WORK has been a whirlwind this past week as well as this week for me.Sorry, I have not had time nor the real energy to give attention to my beauty and lifestyle blog. But I know you’ve been there too. I thought these unique beauty tips will  do it for now.

I’ve shared how much I and models,celebrities and makeup artists love to use Aquaphor in my TV work,photo shoots and on men too! Sharing this blog post on how some other celebrities use it too! Enjoy!

 

By definition, Aquaphor is a healing ointment, designed to heal minor cuts and cracked skin. But that’s far from its only use. Though most of us know the cult-followed petroleum jelly as a lip balm, Aquaphor has tons of other uses, as discovered by the hacks of celebrities, such as Hailey Baldwin, Emily Ratajkowski and…

New York Fashion week Beauty… a bit late!

That Hurricane IRMA has me drained,exhausted and not my usual self. So, forgive for the delay on this post. I did not make it to NYC for fashion week this year but I did chat with a few of my friends on what they did or saw behind the beauty scene.

Rumor has it my fav’ things were hot in NYFW fashion week this year!

One is an Ancient Chinese Secret now once again let out of the beauty bag you may know I have used for years on myself and on my clients.This double sided wonder is a fan of Asian Royalty where they used it in gold down to now the everyday woman in jade. One side is for the eye area and one for the face.Rolling in circular motions and upward strokes it brings a beautiful glow to the face. The women of the Orient would use it for ant-aging. One cool tool. Now, model’s and makeup artists covet it.NB8J0393

Another is Rosebud Perfume Companies of salves called Rosebud Salve. The original lips salve is used on the lips,top of the cheeks,on the shoulders and added to a baby tooth brush to groom brows in place or pesky hairs around the face.

At NYFW and other beauty events they also used the infamous sheet mask and more. I  too LOVE, LOVE, LOVE K Beauty anything and these instant gratification wonders!They really are magical! Therapispa has an KBeauty Essence your skin will love.

Not your basic everyday toner or skin freshener. It too gives the skin another layer of love!

And the cat eye lined eye is still holding it’s beauty reign.

The  infamous makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury worked her magic with a shimmer and contour stick and illuminated and chiseled the skin. She is always on point!

That’s all the buzz I have to share tonight.

I hope you explore some of these beauty secrets and get glowing!

Get Gorgeous for New Years Eve…

I think you haven’t lived until you tried this creme! Really!

Created by a physician who specialized in skin diseases 50 years ago.

I heard about it from another make-up artist Joel Teron who does makeup for NEW YORK fashion week and he too LOVES  this coveted beauty secret.

It is a face primer,moisturizer,makeup remover and a guy can even use it to shave his face with. You’ve got to feel it and see it on your face to get it and see the magic.

Make-up artists use it to make their clients skin look amazing! It is also the MOST REQUESTED face creme by TOP models before we do their face.

This old time rich in history French formula is awesome in a tube.

Makes the perfect gift for YOU or the makeup diva in your life!
