Beauty Cleanser for your…

…Liver that is a Liver Lover!

And great for the rest of your body too.

This fresh  fabulous flusher recipe comes from Tess Masters…THE BLENDER GIRL a sassy Aussie who I think is a healthy & FUN blender genius in her kitchen!

Love her amazing healthy smoothie book! 100 gluten-free,vegan and paleo friendly recipes to delight you.

I feel MARVELOUS! YOU will too~smoothies_book_cover_634_900_90auto

http://www.theblendergirl.com

 

1 1/2 cups of unfiltered apple juice

1 medium raw beet,chopped,steamed or baked (if using a conventiocal blender)

1 medium carrot,chopped,steamed or grated (if using a conventional blender)

2 medium lemons,peeled and seeded

1 cup loosely packed chard leaves

1 teaspoon minced ginger

1 cup of frozen mango

Throw all of the ingredients(except the frozen mango) into your blender and blast on high for about 1 minute,until well combined. Add the frozen mango and balst ffor 10 to 20 seconds more,until smooth and creamy.

 

This vegetable-packed blend is surprisingly delicious according to Tess the author.She recommends you definitely add the mint.The betatine in beets flushes the liver,purifies the blood, and enhances circulation;carrots boost the liver’s anti-oxidant capacity and the lemons improve liver function. Chard provides syringic acid,a flavonoid that prevenst liver degeneration,and mango and ginger have liver-protecting properties,too.

 

I read if we partake of libations it is tough on the liver…so since I enjoy a glass of wine with my dinner meal…I tought this recipe for me is ideal. I have played with this recipe and added other ingredients. BUT I prefer HER recipe the best!

 

 

A Chat with Makeup Artist James Vincent

I recently had a chance to bring a fellow PROfessional makeup artist James Vincent to the TV station with me as he was in sunny Florida to guest speak at The Makeup Show in Orlando last weekend. I enjoyed chatting with him and got his take on what is going to be hot for this spring 2016 on the makeup scene.James Vincent photo

In his 20 years in the beauty industry James has worked with Lady Gaga,our current President,Courtney Love,Liv Tyler,CNN and Reese Witherspoon to name a few.

He recognizes that innovation and technology in makeup and skin care are ever changing and that the absence of animal testing is key.

Here is a peek at his HOT for spring list that we will be wearing this season to come.

SKIN CARE: Cleanse,polish and protect are key steps to healthy skin.

Make-Up:

Sun kissed eye lip and cheek: Peach and pink will be your go to shades for the season.

A little bit of bronzer goes a long way! However apply it only wear the sunshine usually hits your face.And he recommends you mix it with a dash of your fave blush.Don’t just use it alone.

Black Liquid Liner is always in.

Candy Apple Lips that won’t land on your hips! James recommends a blue based red gloss on top of and only in the center and another shade of red lipstick.

Blue Eyeliner and Eye shadow: Blue eyeliner and shadows get a bad wrap.but says these shades of blue really lift up the eyes and brightens up the face too. He suggests you use pencil eyeliners over liquids or creams for liner as they are easier to apply.

GLOW on: He likes Scott Barnes Body Bling (JLO’s makeup artist) as well as Melanie Mills (A La Dancing with the Stars and more) Gleam body shimmer. they both illuminate  the skin on face and body.

I hope you enjoyed meeting this makeup artist and stay tuned for more interviews and tips!

 

 

 

In love with Nail Lacquer?

Me too!

This  is an awesome polish from the hues to the way the lid is made that you apply the polish with. I am mesmerized by this polish. The best part it contains  only THE BEST. You know all the names we can’t even pronounce and that are bad for our health.SMITH & CULT

NO toluene,dibutyl phthalate,camphor,formaldehyde nor formaldehyde resin. I told you you can barely pronounce them!

This brand of polish was created by Dineh Mohajer whom I have had the pleasure of meeting at a beauty event.

She was the founder of the brand Hard Candy a fun brand that started all the cool packaging and a touch of whimsy.

I featured this brand on TV today. Thought you’d like to hear about this new brand.

Who was there at the station too?

The one and only Hot Lips Houlihan! Actress Loretta Swit.

We chatted Polish yes she is Polish like I am and we chatted beauty,food and health. It was a cozy quick chat before she was interviewed on The Chat TV show on NBC12 and ABC25.

Her secret to a beautiful healthy life is being a Vegan.She also shared she uses Dr.Perricone MD skin care line. I was tickled pink to meet her! As readers of my blog you know my mom was a big fan of hers and that TV show. Loretta Swit is town in Florida for an event she is doing for her love of animals.

The Magic of Yogurt!

YUMMY Piña Colada Smoothie to Make your Skin Prettier

Got QUESTIONS:email me @beautyconcierge@gmail.com

This tropical drink is perfect beginning to an ordinary day!

Serving  portions for 2 Ingredients: ¾ cup homemade Greek yogurt

½ chopped frozen mango

1 ½ cups frozen pineapple chunks 1

tablespoon chia seeds (optional)

1 tablespoon shredded coconut

½ cup almond/coconut /skim milk

Place all the ingredients in the blender as listed in the order shown. Blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

* I prefer to make my own yogurt and smoothies NOW since I recently discovered this good for my health find. I love the Belle and Bella starter kit. (I find mine at Whole Foods Market) D.I.Y. has never been more fun and yogurt has never tasted so good. So much more delicious and no preservatives,sweeteners or other additives.

I LOVE my new yogurt machine found on http://www.BelleandBella.com  

It was so much fun even my husband got in on the action in the kitchen!

Now you know I am a makeup artist and skin therapist and all about taking care of your skin. So, I must share a recipe for your face today too.

A D.I.Y. Yogurt Smoothie for your Face you can make in the comfort of your own home!

1/2 cup of fresh plain yogurt

1 teaspoon of  honey

Mix the two together.Apply the mask on your face for an awesome skin treat. It is like visiting the plastic surgeon or dermatologist’s office for a facial peel but cheaper,gentle and all natural. You control the ingredients!

I love being a Skin Chef (that’s what my clients call me) and whipping up ways to get you gorgeous naturally!
The lactic acid in the yogurt gently buffs away dead skin cells and the honey seals in moisture and softens the skin.
Apply to clean face and leave on at least 10 minutes. Rinse well with lukewarm water and a washcloth.

Your skin will love you and say thank you too!
