Luminess Air

Published on by

We all want that “au natural” look, but how are you supposed to get that with thick, goopy foundations and cakey powders? No one wants to look like they have a mask on. Our make-up should enhance us, not hide us! The make-up Gods are shining down on us once again and have brought us the Luminess Air System.

You can apply all of your make-up, from foundation to blush and bronzer! You can even get your bronze goddess on with the tanning options Luminess Air offers. The easy to use airbrush tool sprays the Luminess make-up in sheer layers, concealing imperfections and diminishing wrinkles along the way, leaving your skin looking flawless and beautiful.

Luminess has foundations to match any skin tone, as well as blushes, bronzers, their special “Pearlizer,” which acts as a highlighter, and a primer/moisturizer that is perfect to use before or after foundation application.

Spray your way into a flawless looking complexion, and stay tuned for a special Pink Luminess Airbrush GIVEAWAY!


Skindinavia

Published on by

It’s tough having oily skin… a shiny midday forehead doesn’t scream “fresh & polished”. To make foundation and powder last longer and go farther I always invest in a good primer, but in my opinion the most important step in a makeup regimen is the setting spray. You don’t have to have oily skin to use a setting spray to make your makeup last. If your skin is dry you probably know how uncomfortable that tight, powdery face is… and it surely doesn’t look any better than it feels. A spritz of setting spray allows for your skin to look beautifully radiant and smooth while allowing for your makeup to last and last without touchups, no matter your skin type!

Our favorite and best-selling makeup setting spray line is Skindinavia. It’s a tired and true celebrity and makeup artist favorite. In fact, Scandinavia is used backstage at huge theatrical productions, and it’s always a favorite at fashion week across the world.

Recently Skindinavia updated their packaging to sleek black bottles, and the best part is that you’re now getting MORE for LESS! At $39 a pop these 8 ounce bottles are a steal. Oily skinned gals (and many guys, too) really love the No More Shine Makeup Finish, it’s great as a midday spritz that allows makeup to adhere better to the skin, and it works wonderfully for those on TV and on the stage.  The Skindinavia 10 Years Yonger Makeup Finish is amazing for those of us concerned with lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and scars. Because this spritz cools the skin upon application it rapidly sets powder and foundation in a smooth layer, rather than allowing the skin’s heat to push the product into crevices.

A special occasion calls for very special makeup, that’s why the Skindinavia Bridal Makeup Finish is our go-to for exceptional events. This color dispersing mist helps to keep blended coverage of foundation, eye shadow, blush, and concealer through perspiration and tears! Great for wedding photography and always a prom and homecoming must!

Luminess Air

Published on by

Thanks to Luminess Air we can all have a VIP ticket to flawless, red-carpet ready, celebrity skin from the comfort of our own home. This top of the line air brushing system is easy to use and the results are great. The coverage is customizable and it perfectly blends in one quick and painless application. You can go from foundation to blush to bronzer and then to a full body tan all with one system.

Luminess Air foundation does not cake like traditional makeup while it minimizes the appearance of uneven skin tone, fine lines, wrinkles and pores. Also a great benefit is that it eliminates the risk of cross-contamination that traditional make-up brushes and sponges can’t guarantee (great for acne-prone skin!).

Welcome to a new approach of make-up application that hydrates, accentuates and illuminates better than we thought possible.


Does Cost Really Equal Quality?

Published on by

When customers call in asking for guidance on a product like a moisturizer that best suits their specific needs, there are many variables that need to be narrowed down to help the customer choose.

By the time I have a group of products ready to discuss with a customer, many times cost will be a deciding factor. I hear some of the following questions from customers on a regular basis:

• What’s the difference between drug store and department store brands versus what SkinStore.com sells?
• I love my department store brand, why should I pay more for the brands you sell?
• Do I have to spend a lot of money to see results?

The answer to the first question is that each level of cosmetic or skin care products will have ingredients whose potency and effectiveness will vary according to the maximum dollar amount that the consumer is willing to spend. For example a moisturizer at a drug store may cost $15.00, at a department store $30.00, and at a day spa or doctors office $45 and up! Each price range sets the limit on what ingredients; the quantity of those ingredients and the quality of those ingredients that can be used to produce the product. SkinStore continually strives to provide the best products available with more than 200 premium brands typically found only in luxury spas, fine stores and doctors’ offices!

The second question is why should I pay more and graduate to the next level of product? Each of us has unique skin care concerns that can be addressed with a variety of products. In general the younger we are and healthier our skin the less we may need to spend on products to keep our skin healthy. However for some customers concerns with acne, sun damage (hyper pigmentation) or aging are not met with the average drug store or department store levels of products. This is the point where moving up to the next level of product can help you get better results. After all, where’s the savings in buying four anti aging moisturizers for $15 each from a drug store in six months time, totaling $60 when you can buy a more potent & more effective product for $45 and it will last you just as long?

The third and most important question is do you have to spend a LOT of money to see results? The answer is NO! Remember just because you’re choosing a product that is more expensive than what you have used in the past, doesn’t mean you have to choose the MOST expensive product!

SkinStore welcomes you to contact one of our many skin care professionals who are ready to discuss your unique concerns and issues. Our goal is to help guide you to the product(s) that can help you achieve your skin care goals!

BLINC: Not Your Average Mascara

Published on by

Have you tried every mascara on the market yet you’re still disappointed? Nearly all mascaras claim to be non-clumping, water resistant and flake free, but their track record proves otherwise. Whether you purchase the item from a drugstore or department store, you’re left with the same lackluster result.

It’s time to try something totally different, something TUBULAR! Blinc Mascara is an innovative product that forms tiny water resistant tubes around your lashes rather than coating them with traditional paint-like mascara. Envision lacquer shrink-wrapping to the lash creating length and volume while giving 360 degree coverage around each lash. The result is stunning! Even one with the oiliest of eyelids or women that live in extremely humid climates can be worry free of smudging. You’re left with clump free, water resistant, flake free lashes.

It’s also great for sensitive eyes and contact wearers. For best results apply Blinc on clean, dry lashes. Blinc mascara lasts all day at work, stays put through a vigorous workout and even a full night’s sleep. During application you have a minute and a half to build the volume and length of your lashes to your liking. Once it sets, the tubes clamp onto your lashes for ultimate hold.

When it’s time for removal, no eye makeup remover is required. Water and gentle pressure safely slides the tubes off of your lashes. You’re left with no messy residue that can lead to clogged pores and lashes falling out. Blinc mascara comes in six colors: black, dark brown, medium brown, purple, dark green, and blue.
