FU013-fusion-beauty-lipfusion-xl-micro-injected-collagen-lip-plumpLipFusion XL Micro Injected Collagen Lip Plump is the plumping lip product that everyone should have in their beauty regimen. Yes, injectable fillers can give you this look, but it is temporary and costly. By applying this lip plumper as a nighttime treatment, you will double up in size and smoothness.

LipFusion XL Micro Injected Collagen Lip Plump contains key ingredients that deliver immediate results with increased volume and visible fill. This lip plumper contains Marine Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid for maximum plumping. Hyaluronic Acid retains one hundred times its water weight, resulting in fuller lips.

This lip product has a great spearmint flavor and gives your lips a cool tingly feeling. This gloss is not sticky, makes your lips feel fabulous, and won’t make your boyfriend refuse to kiss you. Get ready for Valentine’s Day with this amazing lip plumper.


Tricks for the Perfect Home Mani!

Published on by

Do you love to have your nails look amazing but just do not have the time to go to the salon? Does it seem complicated and messy to paint your nails at home? Well, good news! We have a few tricks up our sleeves that will help you achieve the perfect mani at home.
Use glue to keep the polish off your skin and on your nails. All you need to do is apply a bit of Elmer’s Glue around your nails. Let it dry and then paint your nails as usual (you don’t even have to be neat about it!) Once your nail polish dries, simply peel the glue away and it will take any of the excess polish with it.

Sometimes your cuticles can get cracked and dry which can give your manicure a rough edge. However, all you need to do is dab a drop of olive oil on each cuticle. Then put on some mittens overnight and BAM! Your cuticles will be looking soft and good as new.
When you trim your nails, do the clippings fly everywhere to be lost until you step on them or find them in the most inappropriate places? Clipping your nails wet will avoid flying debris.
Fun fact: using a white base coat will brighten your neon color to the max. TR026-trind-french-manicure-kit
Do you have old eye shadow lying around? Use it for nail polish! Crush it up and add some clear nail polish. Mix and apply to your nails for a unique, custom look.
Dry your nails in an instant! After you are done applying your nail polish, place your hand in a bath of ice water. It really works. The cold seals the polish instantly. Another method for quick-drying your nails is cooking spray. Yes, cooking spray! Spray on your freshly painted nails and it will cut your dry time in half. This also works and no, it won’t ruin your polish finish.
This next tip is a favorite. Would you like to clean up stained nails? All you need to do is scrub them with some whitening toothpaste, which will lift the stains and leave you with clean and even-colored nails.

BB Cream-Much More Than A Cream

Published on by

HY040-hydroxatone-hydrolyze-bb-eye-luminous-radianceThe BB in “BB cream” stands for blemish balm or beauty balm. This product type has spread throughout Asia with growing popularity, and has slowly taken hold in Western markets. BB cream will be your all-in-one skin care product to replace your SPF, moisturizer, serum, primer, and foundation. These products are usually mineral-based, and are made to treat and cover age spots, sun spots, and acne.

Western skin care companies launched BB creams in 2012, but some formulas were lacking ingredients that care for the skin. When shopping for a BB cream, look for key ingredients like Vitamins C and E. These antioxidants provide effective anti-aging benefits. Another ingredient that is often added to these creams is Hyaluronic acid, which hydrates and plumps up the skin.

HY025-hydroxatone-anti-aging-bb-cream-broad-spectrum-spf-40-mediumSkin care customers struggle with finding their Holy Grail product when so many companies create their own versions. Hydroxatone has an Anti-Aging BB Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF40 and this product does exactly what it promises. It will firm, brighten, and moisturize your skin while creating a beautiful finish. No need to worry about remembering to apply the SPF that we all know we need because this product contains UVA/UVB SPF 40. This BB Cream is not lacking in effective ingredients for your skin’s optimal health. Hydroxatone BB cream contains Vitamin C, PhytoCellTec, and PhytoCell Tec & EMortal. These key ingredients work at stimulating collagen, assisting with the regenerating process, and helping skin stem cells maintain their renewal process.

How can you ask for more from one product? Hydroxatone Anti-Aging BB Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF 40 will be your favorite all-in-one makeup and skin care product. It will make it easy for you not only to look your best, but you will feel great knowing that you are giving your skin the attention it deserves!

Contouring 101

Published on by

Contouring enhances your face’s natural curves to create the illusion of more defined bone structure. By using makeup that’s both lighter and darker than your natural skin tone, you can change the way light bounces off your face, in turn enhancing and even slimming your facial features. Dermablend offers the dermatologist-developed and most-recommended products. They’re non-comedogenic, fragrance-free and allergy-tested; they are safe for acne-prone and sensitive skin.Strategically placing contour color two shades darker than your natural skin tone and a lighter highlighter (and blending thoroughly) works wonders for sculpting these areas…

Chiseled cheeks: Place darker contour color beneath the cheekbones (make a “fish face” to see the hollow spot) and highlighter on the tops of the cheekbones.

A slimmer nose: Use darker contour color on the sides of the nose, and highlighter down the center.

A defined jawline: Place contour color along the jawline and blend downwards toward the neck. Use highlighter in the center of the chin and blend outwards.

Try this with the Dermablend Quick-Fix Concealer.     DB076-dermablend-quick-fix-concealer-spf-30-light

Once you’ve created your contoured look, you want it to last. That’s where makeup-setting products come in, and there are two different formulations to meet every need.

The easiest way to keep your makeup in place (contouring included) is with a setting mist. With a just a few spritzes, makeup looks freshly applied all day, and it can also be used to refresh your complexion throughout the day without disturbing your makeup (or the need for application tools). Setting mists are ideal for those who wear powder foundation and they are super-easy and mess-free. Try the Dermablend Set + Refresh Spray.

Setting powder may look white to the eye, but it’s invisible when lightly dusted over makeup. This final step keeps makeup smudge- and transfer-resistant and dramatically increases its longevity. These powders are available in loose form and compact form (which is perfect for touch-ups on the go). Tip: Only use setting powder over contoured areas to keep highlighted areas glowing.

Dermablend Setting Powder is available in “Original” for all skin tones plus two additional shades.

More than Make Up

Published on by

Jane Iredale is not your typical make up. It is an extension of skin care. I have always wondered why some women spend all this time and money making sure their skin regimen is ideal for their skin but the makeup ingredients are not always as important. With Jane Iredale you do not have to compromise the coverage or the beautiful make up products. This line is recommended to patients by dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and skin care professionals.

Jane Iredales line avoids harsh chemicals, artificial colorants, chemical preservatives, synthetic fragrance, and chemical sunscreens wherever it is possible. Make up can also cause acne. Most cosmetics contain certain oils that will cause or worsen acne. The type of acne that is caused from makeup is referred to as acne cosmetic. It is characterized by blocked pores and reddened bumps. Acne cosmetica occurs when oils from the makeup product collect and clog your pores.  acne1

This line will not only make your skin look wonderful, but it is actually good for your skin. This is the first make up line that that includes skincare benefits in their formulations. When looking for a great make up product it is not only about what looks best on the skin. Products that have the great coverage are usually the most likely to clog your pores. In result you will find yourself using more make up to cover the imperfections that you have created. This will not be the case in this line and you will not be compromising in the look you want to achieve with your make up. Jane Iredale gives you everything you want out of a cosmetic line and your skin will thank you.
