Autumn Beauty & Fashion

What’s new this autumn?

Oh how I love the way that sounds….

Today on TV on River City Live in sunny Jacksonville Florida I am showing the TV viewers just that.

Here are some fall trends in makeup,skincare and fashion.

It is going to be a colorful and fun season!

Plaid is trending. But anything Leopard print is HOT 🔥!

Accessories add a touch of whimsy and fun. They brighten up a wardrobe. Buy a new handbag. The latest fashion craze are small purses and belt bags.

Metallic accessories are so in. And rose gold isn’t going anywhere!

Male grooming and skin care is so in!

Men realize they want to look good and need a moisturizer too!

Check out: http://www.mensroutine.com  for the MR. in your life! My husband loves the activated skin scrub especially!

Gleaming skin is the answer to your skin.

You can gleam too with Melanie Mills from Hollywood’s kit. Three glorious shades to glow with. May be used on the face and body.

They are running a special with a $50.00 purchase or more get a selfie light absolutely FREE!!!

The Glow Girl Kit is one of each of the fabulous lighter Gleam shades in mini 1 oz tube sizes.  Great way to try the brand and enjoy them for travel too.

As seen on The hosts of The Real TV daytime show. And on celebrities & models.

Lip plumpers, lashes and brows are still in!

*I recently discovered a lip plumper called Unbranded Beauty check the line out if your lips need a voluptuous fuller looking lift!

 

So go ahead and plump that pout!

Hello,Handsome!

BEARD BAR IMG_5647.JPGI know you want to look and feel good too!

Great looking healthy skin takes a little ME time and effort DAILY!

In the summer our skin tends to break out or get dehydrated from the sun and outdoor activities even more. Here are the latest and greatest in grooming this summer and beyond!

  • Skin care exfoliation is very important for the guys too. Fruit Peel by celebrity esthetician Elina of Elina Organics will gently exfoliate your skin  while you sleep.
  • Fresh Face Beard Bar is a new way to wash your beard and soften it up and clean the complexion underneath. You don’t want your beard or mustache to be dry and unkempt looking. It’ not enough just to wash your face. 🧼 Don’t use deodorant bars on that handsome face!
  • Stay hydrated by drinking lots of water.
  • Floss- Caring for your 🦷 and gums = A healthier heart. Cocofloss is the way to go made with Coconut oil.
  • A relaxing 🛀 bath with bath salts or your fave Aura Acacia essential oil, detoxifying sheet mask and a hand,feet and body lotion to follow work wonders on the body and skin after a long work day or week.
  • Got leftover beer? 🍺 Rinse your hair with it after you shampoo. The malt and hops in beer contain cleansing properties!
  • D.I.Y. Recipe #2  Add a dash of apple 🍎 cider vinegar to the hair with a bit of beer and 1 oz. of water 💦 and you’ll have a hair rinse that removes build up of all those products you’ve been using. Shinier clean hair!

Cool products and tools for cool guys!

TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF! You are all you got.

After a day at the beach or in the sun!

It isn’t all you expected is it? The first few  or time back in the sun after winter is tough. on your skin. Especially when you don’t bring your BFF’S. A sunscreen,sunglasses and lip conditioner. SUNBURN that dreaded look and feeling after a day or two in the sun. You aren’t sitting pretty!

The #1. thing you should have done was throw out last years or expired sunscreen or sunblocks. You need a fresh one! Please don’t forget to reapply not just apply once and think you are all set. You’re NOT!

2. Protect those PEEPERS and wear sunglasses. Squinting causes wrinkles and your eyes themselves need sun protection. Your lips need some love to with a lip balm.

3. Once you’re burned by the sun and outdoors…you need to rescue your skin! But calm down I’ve got your back!

Try a yogurt …plain fluffy Greek yogurt. You can make your own (I will share how you on another TV blog) get some store bought. Apply to your skin like a face mask. A thin coat will do. leave on and rinse well. Add moisture back to your skin! Apply your fav’ moisturizer and face cream.

*Yogurt is a legendary and easy remedy.

4. COOL the burn on your skin with milk on a flat cotton pad or gauze.

5. IF you own an aloe plant…grab a leaf. Cut it open and apply the gel inside on the skin. Great for peeling and itchy skin too. Or fill an ice cube tray with aloe vera gel (found in drug store) and freeze. Roll a cube on the burn and cool down that skin! Aloe plants make great plants for outside your kitchen door. OR in your home. Easy to maintain. Good for kitchen burns while cooking too.

6. Add moisture back to your skin! Soothe your skin further by applying your fav’ moisturizer and face cream. My latest aloe find is Therapispa aloe lotion for the body and the face cream.

I hope and know you will find these skin rescues for your skin useful.

Enjoy a healthy dose of the sun 🌞 this summer!

Give yourself a Super Smile this spring!💋

IMG_2960.JPGIf you want a fresh new look this spring...change up your spring beauty routine when it comes to brushing your teeth. I like and use other toothpastes but always come back to this brand. And they have two NEW flavors for Spring!

Berry Chill and Coconut Key Lime Mint these are the HAPPIEST flavors and the tube is pretty eyecatching too. It makes me want to brush my teeth even more!

I am totally in love with SuperSmile a brand created by Dr. Irwin Smigel...the father of cosmetic dentistry who created the FIRST tooth whitening toothpaste!

These new flavors offer the same amount of 6 shades of when used with the Supersmile whitening accelerator. But I often use the toothpaste for it’s star ingredient Calprox. The unique way you use the toothpaste is on a DRY 😁toothbrush.

I saw results in a few days. And then they continued on. Just remember EVERYTHING we eat stains or tints our teeth. Like skin care you have to be consistent and used on a regular day and night basis.

The company says maximum results, 6 shades whiter is achieved in 30 days. Great for healthier gums too.

So maybe it’s time for you to discover a new way of brushing and have a healthier pretty smile too! SMILE BRIGHTER

 

 

Oscar Beauty Rituals

The Oscars! Did you watch this year?

Who swept you off your pretty feet at the Oscars?

I did watch as I am all about the celebrities makeup,skin and hair. In fact am featuring beauty tips from my blog today on TV on River City Live on WJXT 4 in sunny Florida.

  I enjoyed the sea of COLOR metallics and all shades pink! From the Crazy Rich Asian Stars to the mirrored masterpiece on the ever glowing JLo. And of course the lipstick red dress Jennifer Hudson wore and the basic black from Lady Gaga. Now always keep it real…and remember they DON’T wake up that way. It takes months of prep for both their face,body and all that bling and fashion!

  • It is all about the diet and pre- Oscar prep to look good in those gowns and tuxedo’s. Celebrities are all about green juicing,exercise,yoga,massage and beauty supplements. As you know beauty starts from the inside and shows on the outside. Some celebrities even admit they starve themselves (not compleley but really skimp or fast) to look good in those lovely gowns,dresses and pant suits.
  • Skin  Treatments -What are there go to’s for pretty and healthy looking skin? A DEEP cleansing facial is at the top of the list gold,diamonds and gem stones. Cryotherapy is the cool anti-aging sensation that is coveted lately too.Jade and rose quartz roller and light therapy are still having a moment too.Some celebrities use quickie sheet masks for eyes,face and lips! MALE celebrities do facials,sheet masks and other treatmensts at the spa too!
  • Mani’s and Pedi’s with  statement nail or a simple manicure by a celeb and editorial nail specialist.
  •  Body treatments like wraps,cellulite treatments and tan from a spray tan specialist and covered to highlight the skin with some Gleam by Melanie Mills!
  • It’s all about the sage & crystals! I am told some celebrities have rituals for good luck and some include a treasured gemstone and burning sage.
  • Beauty sleep and WATER are most skin care heroes for celebrities.
  • Red lipstick is the classic choice. But as of late the shiny lipgloss and metallic has entered the lip picture. This year PINK had it’s moment. Beleive it or not pink is everything when it comes to a lipstick hue. It really is magic and looks good on everyone.
  • Blotting papers or blotting powder papers are a MUST for that unexpected emotional shine!
  • Eye makeup was simple and classic. The smoky really dark eye is not a popular otpion. Understated and a touch of shimmer opend up the eyes and mesmerize.
  • Let’s take a peek in their evening bags! It is ALL about the pretty clutch and a lipstick and maybe a mint.Some celeb’s don’t even carry money on them.
  • Got your own beauty and skin care question? Just ask me!

Happy Galentine’s Day!

Yes it is a day! Made-Up in recent years but still another reason to celebrate LOVE and friendship with your gal pals,besties or even family.

Yesterday I featured on my beauty and lifestyle segment on TV ways to do just that. Grab a cup of coffee and tea and enjoy my blog with an easy D.I.Y. There is still time to throw a mini soiree. For two or for 12 besties. If you can’t do it today. You can always do it Valentine’s day or even a day over this weekend.

1. Invite friends you want to celebrate with via text,phone or email.

2.Create a theme. I like the beauty or pajama party type theme.Decorate accordingly or choose LOVE as your decor with hearts and more.

3.Think of the treats,food and drink you’d like to serve.Make a list and go get it. (Serve in disposable glassware,plates and silverware to keep it simple)

4.Examples Menu: Who doesn’t love chocolate? Get a box of chocolates or even a bag of Hershey’s Kisses. Add something sparkling.Maybe a mini cake,cheesecake or cupcakes sprinkled with lips or hearts. A pitcher of spa water:Try fresh mint and lemon water.

5.Pick up swag to giveaway. It doesn’t have to be expensive.I found the cutest mirrors with red lips at a local dollar store. Who doesn’t love a treat to take home?

6. I gather up a few ideas for conversation and to Kiss & MAKEUP. Lipsticks,eyeshadow,nail polish,fragrance or you can go as far as K Beauty sheet masks and lip scrubs.Share beauty secrets and beauty faux pas and laugh the afternoon or night away.

7. I also like a fun game. I pass around a framed piece that says” What the way YOU USE your Lipstick says about you”. Girls can’t wait to dig in their purse for their lipstick tubes to see what their tube says about them.

I hope I have given you some inspiration for a little gathering with friends and celebrate! I’d love to hear what you come up with. Talk to me. Share with me.

You don’t need a man to buy you a box of chocolates. TREAT YOURSELF!

Time to say “Goodbye” to the old…

And “IN” with the NEW!

It is the perfect way to start the new year!

Shampoo,hair treatments,makeup,skincare,eyelash curlers,makeup brushes,body lotions,fragrance and more. Today I showed on TV on River City Live on WJXT.COM I featured these tips and more.

How do you do this?

Sniff and take a look at your products. If your lipstick smells funky,your nail polish is turning three shades it wasn’t, your makeup not moving when you apply it. Time to throw them out. Mositurizer or body lotion not what it used to look like? Time to throw them out. Your skin health and health depends on it!

Your eyelash curler not curling? Time for a new one or replace the rubber liner inside.

Makeup Brush hairs falling out and the metal band hurting your skin? Time to buy replacements!

Makeup sponges crumbling while you do your makeup? Replace them! Powder puff in your compact dirty as hell and hasn’t been washed in months. Get news ones and throw that dam thing out!

MASCARA the leading culprit of eye infections. Throw it out every three or four  months.  You don’t want to welcome pink eye.

Shampoo and hair conditioner not working for you anymore? Throw it out.

Wood Pencils for eyes and lips cutting your eyes and lips. Buy new ones and start anew.

Your sonic tooth brush head and face cleansing unit brush needs to be replaced too!

Haven’t used a beard or hair dye product that you opened  in a long time? Throw it out. As time goes by it will lose it’s potency and the ingredients will change.

Your razor needs to be replaced or new blades need to be bought and start new.

Your perfume or after shave doesn’t smell as sexy or fabulous as it used to? Use it as a bathroom deodorizer. Don’t wear it any longer.Trust me. You will not smell good.

Got the picture? Like I always say…like MILK your products have expiration dates.

Catch me and my vaulable tips for organizing your vanity/space on my TV segment on http://www.wjxt.com on River City Live.
