All of us have beauty tips that we’ve picked up along the way that have helped us out in a pinch or have provided beauty relief in a new or previously undiscovered way. Extending makeup wear is a popular subject as most of us are dashing from place to place. Look pretty as a plum all day long with these quick tips!
If you suffer from runny eye makeup change to waterproof liquid liner for extended stay put power and all day wear with no re-application.
For all day wear lashes that can last through the office, to the gym and then out to dinner waterproof mascara is your best friend. It will stay put all day and doesn’t require touch up.
Lip stain is perfect for extended wear. Unlike lipstick which is topical, lip stain will actually stain your lip with a light pigment that will last much longer than traditional lip gloss or lip stick. In a pinch, use your lip stain as blush that will stay in place all day.
Use primer before applying your foundation and your makeup will look better and stay in place through the day.
And finally, if you have oily skin, don’t reapply makeup all day, blot it with oil absorbing blotting paper. In a pinch, tear off a piece of a ladies room seat cover and blot away.

Just like you would fuel your car, your skin needs fuel to function as well. Elemental Herbology developed Cell Food Facial Serum which is just what your skin is craving. It’s packed with powerful proteins, vitamins and antioxidants to give your skin the healthy boost it needs. Kombuchka, fermented sweet black tea, is used to exfoliate the skin and improve skin texture. Squalene is used to deeply hydrate the skin without leaving a greasy feel and soothing Aloe Vera and Rose Damask to calm and soothe even the most irritated skin. Simply apply a few drops to your face, neck and décolleté twice a day and follow with your favorite moisturizer for a healthy glow both inside and out!
Do you love a rejuvenating microdermabrasion at your local spa, but hate to spend the time and money? In the comfort of your own home, and without the risks of traditional microdermabrasion machinery, you can achieve smooth, gently exfoliated skin.
Exuviance has released the new Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish to answer the customers who want exfoliation, but aren’t looking for your average, teenage, abrasive skin scrub. This product can be used once or twice a week to brighten skin tone by sloughing away darkened, dead skin from the surface as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This glycolic and lactic polish is amazing when paired with your favorite serum and moisturizer for a full anti-aging facial treatment.
Apply a thin layer of the scrub to a wet, cleansed face and gently massage the polish for about 30 seconds but be sure to avoid the eye area. There is no need to aggressively scrub the polish into the skin, the glycolic and lactic acids will do the work for you. Leave the polish on for 1-2 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.
You will be left with that “just left the spa”, silky smooth skin for days.

SkinCeuticals announces their newest correcting and hydrating product, Metacell Renewal B3! This product is perfect, if you are just starting to see signs of aging due to sun exposure. This light gel-cream offers barrier repair, calming of inflammation, brightening, and correction for a dull skin tone. Tri-peptides help tighten the skin. It is also, great for dehydration and hyper pigmentation. Every skin type can benefit from a serum that boosts hydration levels. I have been using it for almost a week and have seen an improvement in firmness and brightening. In the morning I use it after the CE Ferulic. It absorbs nicely into the skin. So far, I give it an A+!
Another hot product is SkinCeuticals, Physical Eye UV Defense SPF 50. I will be honest; at first I didn’t really see the need for this product. After learning that most facial cancers happen around the eyes AND knowing my own issues with sun damage around my eyes, I didn’t need any more convincing. Plus, for those of us who wear glasses the sun rays are magnified through the lenses, exposing the already delicate under eye area to more harmful UV rays. Yikes! I get it now, you totally need this product. Like its uber-popular facial counterpart, SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion SPF 50, it is tinted. So, you can use it like a concealer or an eye shadow primer. There is no moisturizer in it, so it’s not greasy. In fact a colleague reported that it actually controlled the oil on her eyelids. We love it and think you will too!
Are you on the hunt for a new Vitamin C Serum? Look no further, PCA Skin C and E Strength is a combination of pure 15% L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and 5% tocopherol (vitamin E). These proven antioxidants work synergistically to protect the skin while boosting collagen production and improving the signs of sun damage. Daily use of this anti-aging formula in conjunction with the appropriate PCA Skin broad spectrum sunscreen provides optimal skin protection. Sounds amazing, right?

Want a slimmer nose? Defined cheekbones? Hide your double chin? Make that forehead appear smaller? Contouring can do all of that, and more! Now, if you suffer with Acne, you are probably thinking that this won’t work for you. But not to worry, Dermablend is the #1 recommended camouflage brand by Dermatologists across the world. We are non-comedogenic and non-acneic and fragrance free. Trust, you can have a beautiful contoured face without the breakouts or heavy foundation!
When it comes to foundation, no one does it better than Dermablend. Foundation IS what we do. This contouring technique features Intense Powder Camo and especially for our friends who suffer with breakouts!
–COVER: When choosing to different foundations, you want to aim to have your highlight shade 1-3 shades lighter than your traditional foundation and your contour shade 1-3 shades darker than your foundation.
–HIGHLIGHT: Apply the Intense Powder Camo foundation highlight shade to your nose and out to your forehead, like a palm tree. Then apply under the eyes in an upside down triangle (down on cheekbones). Apply to upper lip and center of chin. Lastly, apply a small highlight line in between your jaw and cheekbone. This provides more product when blending.
–CONTOUR: Make a duck face, apply the Intense Powder Camo foundation to contour under the cheekbone from the hairline, tracing across cheekbone until just before the nose. Then apply to the jawline (and if you want to hide that double chin, then apply under the jaw on the neck as well). Then draw down the sides of the nose to give a slimmed effect. Lastly, apply from temple to temple, tracing your hairline.
–BLENDING: Everyone has their own technique. When using powder, a powder brush works great for the highlight. Beauty Blender works best for the contour. Start by blending the highlight on the nose up to the contour. Blend all highlighted areas first to the contour. Then, smooth the contour into the highlight.
–SET: Lastly, ensure you have blended every area and set with Dermablend’s Setting Powder and voila! You have a beautifully, professional contoured face!
