October is national Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In 2014 alone, the disease has touched the lives of an estimated 232,030 women and their families. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, “one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.” The numbers may be staggering, but when breast cancer is detected early, the five year survival rate is 98%. We all can do our part, no matter how small, to help fight breast cancer. Whether you’re running the local 5K to raise awareness or purchasing your favorite pink lipstick a step was taken in the right direction. SkinStore offers a variety of products that donate proceeds to aid breast cancer research.

This campaign is a national public service program created to help individuals with cancer look good, improve their self-esteem and manage their treatment and recovery with greater confidence.): It’s time to think beyond the washcloth and elevate cleansing to a sonic level. Traditional methods of cleansing don’t get your skin as clean as you’d think. Fortunately, the lead inventor of Sonicare discovered a breakthrough in how we cleanse. Clarisonic’s patented sonic technology works with skin’s natural elasticity to gently remove the impurities traditional methods leave behind—cleansing 6X better than your hands alone. In just 60 seconds, the sonic action removes impurities from pores so creams, serums and moisturizers absorb better. And with regular daily use you’ll notice a reduction in dry patches, oily areas and blemishes. Cleaner skin is healthier skin and healthier skin is more radiant and more beautiful.

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!

Determining your skin tone is essential when color matching foundation and selecting your most flattering makeup shades. Similar to selecting colors in clothing, the right hue can make you sparkle and shine. Complimentary colors enhance and brighten your complexion, while the wrong one makes you look drab and washed out.
Skin tones are separated into three general categories warm, cool and neutral. Keep in mind, within each skin tone there are different undertones or subtle hues in the skin. There are four basic undertones: yellow/orange, red/orange, blue/red and red. Warm skin tones have yellow/orange or red/orange undertones. While women with cool skin tones have blue/red or red undertones.
Use these helpful tips to determine your skin tone and better understand what colors best suit you.
Warm Skin Tone:
The majority of the population has a warm golden skin tone. Generally, people who have black, brown, blond, or red hair with brown, black or hazel eyes fall into this category. Women who have an olive complexion and tan easily also fall into this group. An easy way to determine your skin tone is by a simple vein test. If you look at the inside of your wrist (in natural light) and your veins look slightly green, then you have a warm skin tone.
The most flattering and natural makeup shades for warm skin tones are warm, earthy colors. Hues of brown, gold, bronze, olive, beige, champagne, sage green, cream, mocha, rust, and apricot are complimentary. Try to find foundations that are yellow or peach based and avoid foundations that have a pink or red base.
Cool Skin Tone:
Women with a cool skin tone have a pink, rosy undertone with subtle hints of blue. People with very fair skin, fine blond, black or brown hair with blue, green, or grey eyes most often fall into this category. A good indicator of a cooler complexion is if your skin is thinner, translucent, and sensitive or burns easily. If you look at the inside of your wrist and your veins appear to look slightly blue, then you have a cool under tone.
Cool skin tones most flattering and natural makeup shades are rich vibrant colors. Hues like navy, red, bright pink, raspberry, emerald green, plum, black, violet, turquoise and silver are complimentary. Look for foundations that are pink based and stay away from ones that have a yellow or orange base.
A common misconception for cool skin tones is to counteract redness by using a yellow based foundation. Using a foundation different from your natural skin tone masks your natural beauty. The wrong shade is often noticeable, leaving an orange or yellow ring around the jaw line. While the correct shade blends seamlessly, enhancing your natural skin tone.
Neutral Skin Tone:
If you find yourself not fitting into either the warm or cool category you may have a neutral skin tone. Luckily for neutral ladies, they look great in any color, warm or cool. Experimenting with a wide variety of colors will help determine what best suits you.
Look for foundations that are neutral in color, neither too yellow nor pink.
The right color choices for your skin tone will enhance and enliven your appearance. Simply put these helpful hints to use and be prepared for glowing compliments!
