Evaluate Your Tools

Published on by

To get a flawless application of cosmetics it is very important to have the clean and proper tools necessary. If any of your makeup brushes look frayed, worn down or broken it’s time to replace them. It is easier to replace brushes in multiples since they come at a better value than when purchased individually. If your tools are damaged in any way, it will affect the application techniques and the final look. Get the brush essentials needed by picking up a simple brush set like Bare Minerals Jet Set Mini Brush Collection or the Stila Brush Set.

Flat Irons & Their Differences

Published on by

With so many different choices of flat irons out there it can be hard to know which one to choose. Next time you go on the search for a sleek new iron pay attention to these key words:

Titanium: Offers extremely smooth surfaces to prevent any pulling or snagging. The durable metal helps to provide proper heat distribution for fast styling from root to tip without the creases.

Ceramic: These plates are fused with a crystal coating that produces a negative charge, which creates an easy glide. Ceramic plates help to seal the cuticle for a sleek, smooth look.

Tourmaline: This material is great for reducing frizz. Similar to ceramic, the negatively charges ions help to seal the hair cuticle, helping to lock in natural moisture.

*Nano: It’s not a material, but rather tiny nano elements processed on the metal plates. Nano particles help to provide a bonus of antibacterial protection!

Hope this has helped to ‘straighten’ things out!

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.


The NEW Baby Quasar MD

Published on by

Baby Quasar, one of the most innovative anti-aging companies has developed a brand new device, the Baby Quasar MD.

The new Baby Quasar MD is 3x more powerful and more effective than the original, so you will be able to achieve professional results in half the time. It is the most powerful and effective consumer device available, and was previously only used in medical facilities.

The device works by emitting infrared light and four different wavelengths that stimulating your skin to increase blood flow and circulation. As the skin ages it produces less collagen and hyaluronic acid which will make the skin deteriorate over time. The Baby Quasar MD will generate the production of new collagen which will improve the overall condition of your skin. It will soothe and heal the skin, it will also firm, treat large pores, reduce wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. You can also use the device on the green mode for up to 12 minutes at a time, to treat pain such as arthritis, sprains, and wounds.

The new MD is just as easy to use as the original and just as portable. The MD has three settings, an orange LED low for sensitive skin, red LED high for normal skin, and a continuous wave green setting which is the highest power setting to increase blood flow and circulation. There is an indicator light on top of the device which will indicate which mode you are in.

When you begin using the Baby Quasar MD treatment you will want to make sure your skin is clean with no makeup or skin care products except for a hydrating serum. You will also want to remove any jewelry. The Baby Quasar pure silk is recommended to use in conjunction with your quasar before you begin treatment. Visually divide your face in 6 different sections and use the device for 2 minutes on each area of the face. The device will beep when it’s time to move to a different area of the face.

Rather then using the device 2-3 times per week with the original Baby Quasar, it’s recommended that you use the Baby Quasar MD only once per week for 24-36 minutes per treatment. Because of the strength you can use the Quasar MD up to two times per week; this will allow your skin enough time to regenerate and to prevent dryness from overuse. To clean the Baby Quasar you can use a cotton pad with alcohol or hydrogen peroxide after each use.

The Baby Quasar MD can be used on all skin types, it is Dermatologist recommended, and is FDA approved and accepted. The quasar will make a great addition to any skin care regimen because it will boost the benefits of any products you are already using. If you have any medical concerns we suggest first consulting your doctor or dermatologist before using this device.

Tweezing Tips for Gorgeous Brows!

Published on by

There’s no denying eyebrows can make or break your look! Eyebrow trends come and go, but for the most part having well groomed brows can make all the difference in the message you send when someone approaches you.

In recent years it’s become much trendier for men to go in and have their brows trimmed, groomed, or waxed. Unfortunately there are those cases where the person they went to got over-zealous and tweezed or waxed too much… and well, you get the idea.
Either lady or gentleman, remember the first rule when tweezing and shaping your brows, you can always tweeze more hair later, but if you tweeze too much now you can’t put it back!

The second thing to keep in mind is the old adage, “The right tool for the right job!” If you want to look fierce, using an old beat up pair of cheap tweezers, bad mirrors, and low lighting won’t get you there.

Be sure you invest in a pair of good tweezers. They don’t have to be expensive but I recommend tweezers at a slanted angle or tweezers that come to a point. I recommend Billion Dollar Brows Tweezers, or Tweezerman Slant Tweezers. Either of these tweezers will allow you to precisely remove one hair at a time versus stubby tweezers that may end up pulling out too many hairs at a time! For best results grasp the hair at the base next to your skin and pull outward in the direction of the growth.

Ladies if you’re not sure on what shape to go with, how thick or thin, try using Colorscience Voluptuous Stencil. Use this as a guide to shadow or pencil in you brows. Once completed, trim or tweeze all the brow hairs that fall outside your new brow shape.

When tweezing your brows don’t forget to use a 10X mirror to get you that close up detailed view. Don’t forget to take a moment and step back and view your results in a regular mirror at a distance as you go.

And always remember Eyebrows are Tweezed, Chickens are Plucked!
