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?

I would LOVE to hear from you. Let’s chat beauty and skin care!

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.
Visit their website for more information.www.hotgirlspearls.com

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!

Ready,Set,Pack!

nail mini

Are you traveling out of town or just a mini staycation for overnight.
It is so important to pack your summer beauty right! Don’t take everything but the kitchen sink.Keep it simple but take what you want and need.

Here are some of my packing secrets to a lighter beauty bag and without the stress.

First downsize your containers! Don’t take the large hair styling gel,the biggest hand cream or the largest face cream you have.Buy mini travel containers,fill them with your creams,scrubs,face wash etc.
Travel with only the product amount you need for the time you are going to be gone away.

Next put down that large perfume spray bottle or splash. Maybe it is time you tried sleek roll on perfume bottles or take those samples your fave cosmetic counter has given you. Not only will the airline take that bottle you adore.They will take it away FOREVER if you bring it in your carry on or purse…you really don’t need the big bottle.

Sample and mini me sizes work wonders.
They are such a breeze to use and travel with. Take any samples or mini sizes with you in a baggie and USE them! So much lighter and easier.

Scale down that toothpaste tube,shave cream and hairspray too!

Fill your vitamins or any other supplements in a mini vitamin envelope especially made for them. Or put them in a pill pack for on the go.

So in love with this nail lacquer!

in the cable Car- Pool OPI
Do you know what it means?

No,its not the name of that charming little boy character from the old Andy Griffith show.I am not sure how you spell his name from the show I do know that if one more person calls this iconic nail polish “O-Pee”, I think I am going to have to scream. It is pronounced by its letters OPI and it stands for….Odontorium Products Inc.
You see the first nail products were derived from the dental industry.The words comes from a Greek word meaning “of the mouth”.Think about it if it is good for your mouth it must be safe for your nails as well.That’s what an OPI representative shared with me.In fact I was told years ago that their first office was in a building that was a dental lab.

I’d like to think of the name standing for “OUTSTANDING,professional,individual because every time you have an OPI mani and pedi with a PRO that is what you are going to get. OPI nail techs and business owners LOVE and breathe all things OPI!

I so love OPI it is such a quality and fabulous nail polish.The colors come in a rainbow of shades.So many shades… so much value!

I am allergic to MOST nail lacquer and you might be too.
If you get itchy eyelids,cat scratch kind of marks on your eye lid area and face from touching your eyes and face from a new manicure or polish at home…You might be allergic to your current nail lacquer. What I discovered is that OPI works for me and my skin too!

No matter what your mood OPI has a hue for you!
This hot hue is a shade from the new San Francisco Collection isn’t it rich and gorgeous?

Nails have never been more in!
Paint the town red,pink or with flecks of gold too and have fun doing it.

It was raining all things Beauty in LAS VEGAS this past weekend!

Raining-Beauty

Three glorious days of the International Esthetics, Cosmetics and Spa Conference and the International Beauty Shows

BEAUTY and Hair had an anything goes kind of feel.There are no rules!
Color was all around….From hair tints to nails to makeup.Nails are making a BIG statement and OPI and Young Nails had everything you need to paint your toes red and more.Gold, silver sparkled on the show floor.

ALL things for prettier skin filled one entire kingdom on the show floor.

I as well as the show guests were like kids in a candy store. AMAZING and fun.Martin Parsons rocked the stage with his hair cut and styling magic.

I guest spoke and was THRILLED to see the packed classroom of attendees. I love what I do and happy to share all my beauty words of business wisdom and beauty secrets for bridal makeup too.

Now,the show over,our booth packed and shipped back and time for relaxation.
I practice what I preach. Time for a dip in the pool and a visit to the SPA. Stay tuned for more.

Behind the scenes of a TV show today!

photo 3-2013 TVToday I featured Spring beauty and how you can color your face and world with the gorgeous new shades this spring.

Emerald green as Pantone the color genius company has declared is the #1 new shade to consider wearing in clothes and in makeup.

Baked beauty in base, blusher and eyeshades is a rage that is not going away and the formula glides on like silk and looks beautiful on the face.

Luscious lipstains are stronger than ever.

Everything old is new again! There are all kinds of looks from retro glam to todays colorful faces.

Nail lovers rejoice because it is going to be an even more bold and colorful spring for you from poppy,citrus,to lilac to metallics.It is a nail polish festival out there! Personally speaking I am addicted to OPI!

Face primers will make all your colors cling and last on the face longer. Loose HD face powder will make your face makeup look picture perfect for a porefect look.

Treat yourself to something fabulous and fun this season. A new lipstick and nail shade can make your look updated and happy in a flash!

The holiday season is in full swing and taking pictures at parties and family events will be a part of it. Last week on my  TV segment for The Morning Show I showed the viewers a peek inside my professional makeup box. So, it’s only natural I had to share them with you.

What you will need is to first make sure your face is clean and polished. I love to use a sonic cleanser like Clarisonic skin system. I also highly recommend you use a good face cleansing mask like Splendid Dirt by Farmhouse Fresh or look for a Firming and Tightening one. Guys need to get in on the action too. A microdermabrasion Crystal Peel soap or cleanser will clean the skin and buff away a tired appearance and dead skin. Hydration is key on TV I showed Dermatude Hydra Booster moisturizer but any good moisturizer will do. So, clean skin is important and so is hydration. I like to use an eye gel on all my photographic work,my clients amd one my face day and night. Your eyes are the windows to your soul, if they look dehydrated and tired it will show in the pictures. If you use concealer and I hope you do..make it a salmon colored concealer. This color obliterates a pooped out look. As we age, so does the skin around our eyes and we get a darker ring around the eye especially the inner corner. Next, a face primer is your answer to poreless looking skin. To make your pores look smaller and makeup to LAST this is a must. This product is applied before foundation but after moisturizer.  For the ladies you need to use a richer foundation or a product called Not Your Mother’s Foundation to even out the complexion. Applying more blush is a must especially when it comes to picture taking. Otherwise you can look really washed out.

A mascara in dark blue, green,eggplant or brown/black will define your lashes and make the whites of your eyes look brighter.

A luscious shiny gloss or a medium shade to bright lipstick will make your lips look stunning. Skip a strong shade of lip liner if you want less of a lined outline look or try an invisible lip liner. It locks color in place and defines the lips to make them look larger or smaller. Even children and men need a lip conditioner. The weather outside is colder in most parts of the world or downright freezing so the lips will dry out,peel,flake and look bad.

Set the make-up with Asian Rice Face Powder or an HD face powder . Even the men need this over their moisturizer to look less shiny in photos. Balding guys can help that receding hairline by applying this magical trick of powder to that area. Always work in downward strokes so the hair follicles won’t fly up and be so noticeable.

Now, for the hair…make sure you have a fresh haircut or trim. Hairspray is a must I am in love with Italy Hair Fashion spray. I recommend it to my color treated hair clients to make their salon visits last longer. Spray softly and smooth away those  flyaways with my fav’ brush called the WET Brush. It will detangle and be your go to brush.

Wear nail polishor get a manicure  in case your hands show in the photo, especially if you take a close up and they are in the photo. I love some neutral shades by OPI.

A soft natural look will not do…I don’t want you to look like “cake face” and over do…I simply want you to be aware you’re not running errands or jogging…you need some makeup, a bit more color to your face and the right tools to look GREAT in photographs.

If you’d like to learn more on this subject go to www.news4jax.com and see ME on TV and  my beautiful photographer and friend Anetta Nadolna of Art ‘N’  Illusion Photography and salon with more tips on how to pose for pretty pictures and what to wear. (She’s the photogrpaher of my new photo in my last post and on my profile page.)

Create some memories and take some beautiful and fun family photos. A pictures says a thousand words! What will yours say about you?

Falling for Sky Fall 2012

James Bond 007 and OPI what a winning combination.

I am seduced by ALL the tantalizing shades of color in this collection. My fingers and toes are looking awesome with this seductive collection….like the new movie to release… I can’t wait to see.

The names of the nail colors continue to impress …that’s why we LOVE OPI, right?

Wear these shades along with a sultry colorful eye of  violet mixed with a rich pigmnet eyeshadow shade( not black)  the smoky eye is so yesterday, add some color to the mix and make a statement!

Don’t forget a lush bold lipstick. Purple shouts fall and the new red reveals another you!

Accessorize with the new statement piece necklaces and or scarves and you’ll be so rocking FALL.

I LOVE  fall best of all. Do you?
