Do you have issues with…Blush?

Think pink Kabuki travel bukiMaybe it is the shape of your brush?

The biggest beauty mistake women seem to make is using way too much blush! They simply don’t know what is the correct brush or use a heavy hand with that brush!

Here is my guide to show you how to apply it the right way and how to select the perfect brush for your blush.

Basic Blush Brush-this is a standard shape brush with a medium to long handle. If you bought it on the run and at a non-fancy big box or dollar store it is NOT going to give you a beautiful blush look.

Angle Brush-This brush helps to apply blush to create a contoured slimming the face effect with your blush. if you can bowl your face down an alley this brush is for you.Unless of course you like a more round face.

Blush/ Bronzing Blush Brush-This flat top beauty is usually perfect for applying bronzer or a kiss of blush color

Fan Brush-This helps to apply the precise kiss of color.Not too much not too soft. I highly recommend this brush for blush.

4 in 1 Blush- This brush is a multi-tasker for blush and other sections of the face too. It is must have in your brush wardrobe! 

And if you get a brush inside the blush compact…Do yourself a favor and throw it out !!!

OR in a pinch  use it as an eye shadow or  highlighter brush. Just remember the shape is off and the quality is not the best.

FYI

The brush pictured is a travel brush for POWDER but I often see ladies in powder rooms using it for blush. Of course the blush looks over done and a hot mess!

I love this brush but only use it for what it is intended for…loose or pressed powder!

 

Don’t ya just love a Chinese Dumpling?

 

 

Today on The Chat on NBC12 in sunny Florida I shared beauty secrets and this Chef shared a yummy pot sticker recipe! Wish you were here!

Here are a few awesome recipes you can make at home from Chef Dennis of Blue Bamboo in Jacksonville Florida!You’ve gotta get his book!!!chat-2016-nbc-logo

Pork Dumplings

8oz ground pork

6oz Napa Cabbage leaves, finely chopped

2 tsp finely chopped ginger

1 tbsp Shaoxing rice wine or dry sherry

1 ½ tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp salt

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper

3 tbsp finely chopped green onions

2 tsp sesame oil

1 tsp sugar

2 tbsp cold chicken stock

 

Combine ingredients until well mixed.

Place rounded tablespoon in middle of wrapper.  Fold and seal with water.  Eight folds is best!

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Drop half of the dumplings into the water and stir once so they don’t stick together. When the water boils again, add 1 cup of cold water to the pot. Then when it boils again, add 3 cups of cold water. The third time the water boils, the dumplings are cooked. Remove them with a slotted spoon and repeat with the remaining dumplings. Serve immediately with small bowls of dipping sauce.

Dumpling Wrappers:

¾ cup bread flour

6 Tbsp all purpose flour

2 ½ ounces water, boiling

½ Tbsp neutral oil

Combine flours in food processor.  Add oil and hot water to processor while running.  Combine until dough forms.  Turn out onto surface and knead 2 minutes until dough is elastic and smooth.  Let rest for 1 hour.  Cut dough in half, and then roll out into a 12 inch log.  Cut log into 12 pieces.  Roll into balls, and flour.  Shape each dough ball into a 3 inch wrapper, with thinner sides than center.

Soy Dipping Sauce

3 Tbsp soy sauce

½ tsp sugar

1 Tbsp vinegar

Pepper to taste
Bring ingredients to a boil.  Garnish with toasted sesame and green onions.

The Chef has an amazing cookbook too….it is called Hip Asian Comfort Food.

Who doesn’t want gorgeous healthier looking skin in the new year? 

This week on my beauty & lifestyle report on TV on NBC 12’s The Chat  at First Coast news station (see my video) I  shared with the viewers a  simple skin care routine. I find women use far too many products on the face and that can cause a traffic jam on the skin…with not so pretty results.

Say no to BOOB & NECK wrinkles!

photo EGGS

The neck is something we must protect but everyone seems more interested in the FACE. The neck and chest are an extension and part of the face! But it is the most neglected part I don’t know why! Do you?

 IF you want to age later and look good..You must protect your neck!

Here is a recipe I shared on TV that is a quick fix when you want to tighten and hydrate the skin on your neck and decollete.

1 farm fresh organic egg (egg white only)

1 tablespoon of honey (optional)

Whisk the two together and apply on a clean face. Leave on the neck and decollete  (your bodacious breast area). Rinse well.

To Go Spa has an awesome mask sensation just for the neck! This collagen gel mask is filled with ingredients:white tea,hyaluronic acid,vitamins C and E. Each mask is cut specifically to fit the neck.Suitable for all skin types.

Bonus idea:Add a set of To Go Spa Green Tea Eyes gel eye pads for under eyes and you’ll have a hydrating fix for for both areas at one time. Refreshed and fabulous!

www.togospa.com

Image Skin Care has a sensational product for the neck called The Max and it is a stem cell neck lift! Can be used lower on the decollete too.Use morning and night.Maybe you don’t need that neck or face lift you think you need. Try a treatment product designed for these areas.

For more information please visit their website. www.imageskincare.com

Saian Natural Skin care  neck and chest lift creme works wonders for the neck with Edelweiss Stem-Cells.

Say no to neck and chest wrinkles and don’t forget to give some love to your chest and neck.Day and night. http://www.saian.net

 Love this quick D.I.Y. recipe to whip up in your kitchen for a quick tightening and softening fix.If you don’t have one of these skin treatments above. Try it …it works!

*Obviously if you allergic to eggs or honey do not use this mask.

However, if you want to see lasting results and a pretty awesome difference to your skin.Use a brand that specializes in these products or neck and chest.

Shot of Pretty!

Today I featured on TV today this awesome drink I discovered at my last beauty conference. It is called YANA! The booth was filled with girls serving up this cocktail of daily collagen shots and I so had to see what the BUZZ at the booth was all about.

As you know I have blogged about other wellness supplements and more. But when I took one look at the CEO and creator’s skin I had to know more.Her name is Janna Ronert.Her kind spirit and  wealth of knowledge made our meeting even better. i am  happy with and take care of my skin but I know we can always make it better. I have now started using this revolutionary beauty cocktail no happy hour needed!

What IS collagen? It is the protein in our connective tissue that makes up 75% of our skin.Our bodies naturally produce this but as we age we start to lose it.By adding this liquid supplement helps you with up to 63% reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

Did you know women produce less collagen  than men? By the age of 50 a woman has naturally lost almost half of the collagen from her skin.I say…

If your skin is not looking as good as you would like it too… maybe it is time to discover Yana!
