Straightening Treatments

Have you always wanted a straightening treatment? Sorry, but dream no more. Brazilian Blowout, the hair straightening company, is under review by the US Congress. Members of the US Congress sent a letter to the FDA asking the agency to issue a voluntary recall for Brazilian Blowout products and other brands that have high levels of formaldehyde.

In the letter, it states:

 It is clear that the FDA needs to take decisive action. An investigation by the Environmental Working Group revealed that FDA has received 47 complaints from salon workers and clients who experience adverse reactions and injuries (including hair loss, blisters, burning eyes, noses and throats headaches and vomiting) as the result of giving or receiving hair straightening treatments.  

Tell us your thoughts.

Bronze Goddess

Anyone can wear a bronzer. A touch of bronzer always adds an instant glow and a sun-kissed look. Yet, applying too much or picking the wrong shade can create the sun-baked look. You just need to know which shade and type of bronzer works best for you.

Pick Your Shade
Look for a bronzer that has pink to mauve undertones and just a hint of shimmer. It will complement your naturally fair complexion without making you look orange.

Go for a bronzer in a terra-cotta shade (rich peachy color). This will warm up the olive undertones in your skin to give you an allover healthy glow.

Try a bronzer in a deep shade with tiny bits of gold shimmer. It reflects light to highlight your complexion.

Find Your Formula
A sweep of gold-feckled powder across the tops of your cheekbones

Use a matte bronzer and lightly dust

A liquid bronzer with moisturizer gives your cheeks a subtle hint of color

Use a marbled bronzer to cancel out redness on your face

Lightly mist an airbrush bronzer on your face

Use a creamy bronzing stick along your cheeks

How to Apply
1. Start at the temples and sweep along the side of the face and under the cheeks. Blend into the apples of your cheeks
2. Lightly dust forehead, nose, and chin with bronzer
3. Blend everything in for the most natural-looking glow

    Eye Love You

    You are lucky and blessed if you are born with long, thick eyelashes. But if you are like me who has short eyelashes, use these mascara tips to create long, full, and lush eyelashes:

    1. Pick the best mascara for you. There's lengthening, thickening, waterproof, or non-clumping.

    2. Dab the tip of the mascara to avoid excess product.

    3. Start at the base of the eyelashes. This gives the illusion of full lashes. 

    4. Move the mascara wand in a swift, zig-zag motion and sweep up. This will create to less clump and improve lash separation.

    5. Apply lengthening mascara followed by thickening mascara. Apply the second coat before the first one dries.

    What are your mascara secrets?

    Birthday Beauty

    Happy Birthday Audrey Hepburn! She is a timeless beauty and fashion icon. To Audrey, beauty was more than just a pretty face.

    “For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. 

    For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

    For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

    For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.

    For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.

    People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

    Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

    The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

    The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode, but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives and the passion that she shows.

    The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.”
    Audrey Hepburn
