Valentines Vixen

I got to glam the gorgeous brazillian beauty, Nadya Cox, this past week for a fun Valentines shoot for her site! We went for a bronzed/gold smokey eye, thick lashes, and a bold red lip. I used my favorite new foundation palette from Eve Pearl, for her flawless complexion. We stayed light on her contouring and bronzed her up with some yummy Chocolate Soleil bronzers from Too Faced!

Keeping Clear: Skin Care While Traveling

Hello loves!

Since I will be traveling a lot over the next couple weeks, I am very cautious with my skin and how I care for it. Being in airports and big cities can always make my complexion a little irritated, so I make sure to exfoliate every night and never go to bed with an inch of makeup on. I like to switch up my skincare regimen every couple months. This month I am using very little product and I have been wearing less makeup so that my pores stay clear. See below my travel skincare routine and how I stay glowing from city to city! XOXimage

Image Skincare: Total Resurfacing Masque ~ I cannot live without this all-in-one masque/exfoliator in my life! It has really kept my pores clean and gets rid of all impurities. I like to exfoliate with this every night to take my makeup off. Some mornings I will apply it as a masque and leave it on for 20min. It is a stronger scrub and tingled quite a bit on the skin.

Natura Bisse: Diamond White Matte Sunscreen ~ I have been pretty oily on this trip due to all the climate changes, so I have been skipping the moisturizer and going straight to my favourite sunscreen at the moment, Natura Bisse. This line was formed out of Barcelona, and I had the chance while I was there last week of meeting with one of the owners and had a tour of one of their amazing spa’s. I received some of their new products to try and will be doing s review soon. But this sunscreen is a must, it is not oily, adds wonderful moisture to the skin and smells divine! This is serious luxury when it comes to SPF!

Motives Perfecting Primer ~ to add a little bit more of a “matte” look to my skin after all the exfoliating and hydrating, I like to add a small amount of this lovely Motives primer. It fills in any lines/pores and leaves my skin fresh and ready for my makeup application!

Skincare: Why I do Chemical Peels!

Happy weekend hunnys!

I wanted to share with you all one of my holy grail products for keeping my skin clear! When it comes to makeup, you have to start with fresh and beautiful skin first. I have tried many amazing skincare lines and Image is definitely one of my favorites. If you struggle with keeping your skin clear, have pigmentation, or just want to prevent aging, chemical peels are for you! I know the word “Chemical” can scare a lot of you away, but don’t be afraid, they can completely change your skin! Keep reading on what type of peel would be good for you!

Group-Peels

 

Do you ever wish your skin was more evenly toned, smaller pores or had 0 acne?! I think everyone does! That is why I love chemical peels! They can completely transform anyones skin in a matter of months! I have been using peels since I was 17 years old! I started out just doing fruit peels, such as Vitamin C, Papaya, and Passion Fruit peels! These are great for those that want to maintain fresh skin! I absolutely love them! So the next time you feel like your skin needs a pick-me-up, make an appointment for a peel!

Why I like Image peels: “A chemical peel product line featuring all natural ingredients, such as Aloe Vera, Papaya, Green Tea and Vitamin C, Image Skincare face peels effectively treat wrinkles, blemishes and uneven skin pigmentation. Our wide variety of chemical peels can take you from organic peeling to medical grade TCA peeling. No other chemical peel product line provides this many options.” -Image

Please note that these chemical peels are intended for use by skin care professionals.

The Facts…

How many times should I get a peel? I suggest doing peels once a month, to once every other month. You will see the most results with your skin if you do this. The only thing that you have to avoid after you get a peel is sunlight for a few days. Your skin becomes very sensitive to light after getting a peel, so plan to do your peels when you know you will be in for the weekend.

  • How do I know what type of peel to get? 
  • Acne Skin- ask for a peel with Salicylic or Benzoyl Peroxide. These two chemicals eat away at acneic bacteria and will deeply cleanse any infections.
  • Pigmentation/Dark Spots/Uneven skin- ask for a peel with Kojic or Vitamin C acids. These lighten and brighten the skin. You will need at least 3-5 to see results.
  • Anti-Aging/Prevention/Pores- ask for a peel with Retinol, Glycolic, or Lactic acids. These are all anti-aging agents that will tighten your skin!

Will it burn? If you are afraid of peels because you think they will “burn”, it all depends on the percentage of peel that you get. Start out with a low percentage like 10-15% and then when you get the tolerance just go up from there! Be sure to go to a licensed professional so ensure that you will be well taken care of. You can get chemical peels from medical estheticians, dermatologists, and medical spas!

blogI am currently using the Wrinkle Lift I Peel from Image! This one is great for the wrinkle prevention and just keeping your skin clear 24/7. If you are interested in Peels in the CA or UT area, please email me to book an appointment!

Have a great Friday!

 

Morning Skincare Update!

Hello beauties!
I have been getting a lot of emails about my morning skincare routine that I said I would be sharing and I am finally getting around to it now! I really don’t like to complicate my morning regimen too much since I already use so many products at night and do treatments monthly. You do not need to use as many products in the morning as well because the most important time to care for your skin is at night, this is when you want to layer and really pay close attention to the care of your skin. Also, the products you use in the morning should be pretty mild, leave all of the strong stuff till later because it will have more time to penetrate into your epidermis, allowing you to see better results. 
Learn how I keep my face squeaky clean below! 
Enjoy

1. I first wake up and cleanse my face with the No. 7 Boots Quick Thinking Wipes. These are great moisturizing and hydrating cleanser wipes that get the sleepiness of the skin and any excess night product. I do not like to wash my face in the skin because I have a lot of natural oiliness already to it when I wake and my cleansers are pretty drying. You can pick these wipes up at your local Target or online HERE. 
2. I spray my face with the Yonka Lotion Toner. Okay, talk about one of the most relaxing and amazingly scented toners. No alcohol at all included in this product and it is more of my “Good Morning” spray that wakes me up with a refreshing mist. Buy HERE. 
3. Some days I will be dryer than others, on these mornings I like to take a pea size of the Lush Ultra balm and apply to the dry patches. I have been using this amazing compact oil for a while now and it is one of the most universal products I have ever found to work very well. I like to use it on all places of the body for dryness, and have found that it works out great underneath the eyes and many other places. Buy HERE. 
4. I am a big fan of Clarins Instant Smooth Primer, I have yet to find any primer yet that tops it, and I have used many. The consistency of this primer is like a creamy butter, it goes on real smooth and literally diminishes the appearance of fine lines, blemishes, and large pores. If you suffer from these concerns, I HIGHLY recommend this product. You will see a huge difference dramatically after applied to the skin. Buy HERE. 
5. Lucrece Tinted SPF 50 has been my favorite sunscreen for around five years now. I love to use it as a quick cover up for the gym or running errands as well. The great thing about it is that it is a “one shade fits all” product and blends perfectly to your skin tone. I like to apply a small amount to the skin lastly as a good protection from the suns harsh rays. I do not leave the house without my SPF on, I started this at a young age and have never had a problem with pigmentation because of it. Buy HERE. 
6. Thomas Roth Unwrinkled Lip Cream is a beautiful lip balm that always leaves my lips feeling supple and soft before my lipstick application. It also helps with major dry lips and small wrinkles. Buy HERE.

Edge Of Never Shoot: Rose Gold Eyes

This shoot has taken forever for me to post, but better late than never! 
I loved being a part of this inspirational mock shoot with my talented friends Perrywinkle Photography and Camilla Photography. Perrywinkle came up with this inspiration from a previous book that she read called “Edge Of Never”. It is about two people in love on a runaway road trip. Teale was our beautiful model portraying “Camryn” and Ghent was our lovely “Andrew”. I went for a very romantic braided ponytail and smokey rose gold eyes. This shoot was meant to be very passionate to show the love between the two, and Teale and Ghent were perfect! Learn how to get this gorgeous look below!

1. With the Stila Ethereal trio, apply the lightest “champagne” color to the inner tear ducts of the eyes. Apply the “gold” color to the entire lid. Apply the middle “Deep brown” color to the outer corners in an angled/sharp shape. Blend with BB Blending Brush.
2. Apply MAC Cranberry to the center of the lid with the BB eye smudged. Go back and reapply a small amount of the “Champagne” Stila color over the Cranberry shadow. This will give a glowing “rose-gold” effect.
3. Time for eyeliner! Apply a thin to thick line starting at the inner corner and working your way outward using Guerlain liquid. Make sure you thicken and wing it upward at the end.
4. Apply your Ardell Wispy lashes with some lash glue, preferably DUO Clear glue.
5. Apply your desired amount of Trish McEvoy mascara to the falsies.
6. Apply any black liner to inner water line and smoke out with your smudge brush and the same Stila “Deep Brown”.

Saturday Celebrity: Charlize Theron

Good morning lovelies! 
Hope you all had a wonderful busy week and now have time to relax! It has been non stop travel for me lately! I just returned from San Diego a couple days ago, I am lucky enough to spend a week there each month for makeup and skincare clients…as well as catch on some sunshine therapy! 
Today is a quick post on how to get this super natural yet wearable look from Charlize Theron! She  is such a natural beauty that a little amount is enough for her. This look is all about staying very neutral, no pops of color here. Sport this “bare” look today! 
Enjoy


Clinique “Even Better” Foundation ~ Any foundation claiming to make skin look “even better” without makeup is going to cause some amount of attention!  Clinique Even Better definitely has.  It’s brilliant blend of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide cause this foundation to be filled with sun battling benefits unlike most. This foundation is light-medium coverage so skin still shines through looking natural. You can wear it with no powder or for a more “Matte” look, set it with translucent!

MAC Pink Tea Blush ~ This is a great blush for people that don’t really like blush. It is very light dusty rose hue. Personally I am not a huge fan of a cheek full of blush, so this color is always my go-to for clients who are more on the natural side. 

MAC Nylon Eyeshadow ~ This shadow was one of the first that I purchased from MAC. It has had many roles in my collection, it’s a great inner eye-duct highlighter, cheek highlighter, shimmering cream eyeshadow,  and brow bone highlighter! Basically it is great for creating a beautiful glow to many areas. In this look it is applied just to the lid and underneath the waterline for an “eye-opening” effect.

Lancome Hypnose Mascara ~  This mascara is great for women wanting to achieve a more “volumous” lash. It holds a curl really well, and has a beautiful lengthening effect. It is flake and smudge free, and also lasts up to 12+ hours. A great every day mascara!

KA’OIR Nudity Lipstick ~ If you haven’t head of “KA’OIR” lipsticks yet, you have got to try them! These super richly pigmented and creamy sticks come in all assortment of colors to choose from, purple, green, pink, you name it! “Nudity” is by far the most wearable out of the collection and is a very cool pink nude color!


Have a wonderful Saturday!
I’m off to do weddings all day, wish me luck!

Fresh and Flawless Makeup

When it comes to event makeup many people get the impression that its always high fashion and glamorous with false lashes and more. As this can be true to some extent, the ‘nearly there’ look has not gone out of style just yet. More and more you will see girls with an almost ‘naked’ look to their makeup, but really its just how it is applied. The truth, it seems, is not so much that “less is more” as that “more is less.” The objective is to let your skin show through and to look like a more flattering version of yourself. That is exactly what I did when miss Emily walked into my room. She was already so naturally beautiful I felt as if i didn’t need to do anything to her look, so with minor fixes I gave her a effortlessly flawless look for the photo shoot. This style of makeup is beautiful for any type of occasion, especially for the most natural brides to be!
 Hope you enjoy…

Let me introduce to you all the ERA Face Spray-on foundation! This product has been one of my favorites for years, it is one that I go to when I am not using airbrush machines. ERA is made for everyone, it is an oil-free foundation that doesn’t dry your skin or break you out. This foundation was originally created for burnt victims who had sensitive skin. With this said, this foundation is infused with Vitamin C and E, Botanicals, Aloe Vera and Chamomile. The product is lightweight, but the coverage is amazing. You may either spray the foundation on or use it with a brush. It is long lasting, wear & water-resistant and it looks like skin!  ERA shades are determined by your skin undertone and the normal shade you are: light, medium, tan.

In Home Spa: Moisture Facial

Have you ever had the best facial in your entire life and wish you could do it every month but cant because of the cost? Well now you can bring that relaxing facial to the heart of your home with just a few products. Keeping up on your skincare routine is super important, especially when it comes to cleaning out your pores. With these great products and a few tips you can have pure skin all year long!
Enjoy





  • First, start off by cleansing your face with the Fresh Soy Cleanser and some luke warm water. This is a wonderful cleanser for any skin type. Rich in amino acids, the soy proteins promote moisture retention, elasticity, and firmness. Rosewater balances and tones the skin. It is fragrance-free and soap-free, and infused with calming cucumber extract, yumm! 
  • Next, turn on your portable Steamer. While it is heating, soak your towels in a bowl of warm/hot water. For some aroma therapy you can add a couple drops of lavender into the water. {If you do not have a steamer, boil  some water until it steams and place in a bowl, cover with a towel so steam stays in. When you are about to steam in your next step keep face 7 inches away from water and soak it in.}
  • When your steam is ready, apply your Suki Exfoliator evenly to the skin and lightly rub in circles into the skin for about a minute. Let the exfoliator soak into the pores underneath the steamer for 10 minutes. This will allow your pores to open up and get prepared for the extractions of any blackheads.  The Natural sugar crystals in this exfoliant will slough off dead skin to reduce fine lines and hyperpigmentation as they smooth skin’s surface. Rice flour extract stimulates circulation and chamomile extract calms inflammation and cools redness. Great for all skin types as well. 
  • Remove the exfoliator with your luke warm towel. You are now ready to remove any blackheads on the nose and any whiteheads. With two pieces of gauze or tissues, lightly squeeze out any imperfections from the skin. This is the correct and healthiest way to remove impurities from the skin. Follow this demonstration video: How To Extract Pores
  • After all of your extractions, you can calm the skin with a mask or a facial oil massage. I like to use Josie Marans Argan oil. In light, circular motions massage the oil around the eyes, cheekbones, jaw and then full face. Don’t worry about this oil clogging your pores because it won’t, This 100% Pure Argan Oil is a legendary oil that’s rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, and grown organically in Morocco. With its multitasking benefits, Argan Oil can be used for many areas including hydrating and nourishing skin, as a daily moisturizer and a skin treatment for any facial.
  • Finish off your relaxing facial with an anti-aging serum. Ole Henricksens Collagen Serum is an oil-free serum that works like a food for the skin and it contains vitamins for the face. The powered vitamin C compounds help even out fine lines as well as wrinkles and put off further breakdown. This serum is loaded with antioxidants to battle with ecological attackers and wetness binding ingredients to keep the skin fed and sheltered.
  • There you have it, a purifying and hydrating at home facial! Best to do at night before bed!

Being an Aesthetician has taught me so much about skincare, especially the importance to take care of it as much as you can while you are younger. You don’t have to use the most expensive products but making sure to take off your makeup every night, using a toner, moisturizer and some type of anti-aging product will do wonders. I will soon be posting about my daily skin routines, so stay tuned! 
In the mean time, what are your favorite skin care products?


Lots of love!
