Make Up Tips and Tricks

                         Easy Tips, Tricks and Secrets for a Perfectly Painted face! 

                                            image

Black eyeliner can make eyes look smaller - opt for slate instead, which looks great no matter what the shape or color of your eyes.


A clear lip balm with shimmerapplied to the skin just above your cupid’s bow — the area below your nose and between the peaks of your top lip, will add light to that area and create the illusion of larger lips. 

To make your nose look slimmer
, after applying foundation, swipe a highlighter (sans shimmer) down the bridge of the nose and set with translucent powder.



After a late night or too few hours of rest,  apply an extra coat of mascara.  It
really makes your eyes appear to be more open and brightens your whole face.

Self tanners are a great way to fake a bronze bod 
but can be very tricky to apply on the face. Your best bet is a powder bronzer. Make sure to use a powder brush, rather than a blush brush, for the most even application.

Play up one feature at a time.
 Dramatic, smoky eyes look best when paired with nude lips and a sexy red pout with more toned down eye make-up.



For a quick, easy “smoky-eye” look, simply use kohl liner, which is easy to blend and two coats of thickening mascara, in black, of course.

Healthy Hair Secrets 

Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatments will keep your hair soft and prevent damage.  Ingredients are key, so check the label!

For Dry Hair, use a moisturizing conditioner which includes “fatty alcohols” such as cetyl alcohol, cetearyl alcohol and stearyl alcohol. Also look for humectants and emollients: glycerin, shea butter, macadamia nut oil and olive oil - which nourish and bind moisture to the hair. Ingredients to avoid are petroleum or mineral oil, which coat hair and clog follicles. Great products to try: Nexxus Hydra-Sleek Conditioner, Aussie 3 Minute Miracle, Goldwell Kerasilk, Redken All Soft Heavy Cream and Clairol Herbal Essences Replenishing Conditioner.

Color Treated Hair requires special care in order to preserve the color and/or highlights and prevent fading. Use products specifically formulated for color treated hair. Avoid any which contain Sulfates, as it can dry hair and fade color.  Use gentle, moisture intensive conditioner to keep color and shine vibrant. It is crucial to shield color treated hair from the sun’s harmful rays, which will degrade hair color very quickly - pomegranate is a natural sunscreen. Other ingredients to look for are aloe, avocado oil, sunflower oil, Another trick is to use color enhancing conditioners - made specifically for blonde, brunette or red hair-colors. Top rated conditioners for color treated tresses:  Kerastase Reflection, Pureology Anti-Fade Complex Conditioner, Fredric Fekkai Technician Conditioner, Burt’s Bees Pomegranate & Soy Conditioner and Enjoy Sulfate Free Hydrating Conditioner.

Extremely Damaged Hairshould ideally be trimmed - but for those who find it difficult to part with even an inch -  Once a week deep conditioning treatment using a hair reconstructor is  imperative.  Reconstructing conditioner work by re-building weak, brittle hair by delivering necessary keratin protein to the hair shaft. Key ingredients include: hydrolized keratin, soy protein, wheat protein, amino acids. Products to try: Joico K-Pack Reconstructing Treatment, Aphogee 2 Minute Hair Keratin Reconstructor, Enjoy Hair Mask, Bumble & Bumble Deeep Conditioner.
