My Quest For Brows

MY QUEST FOR EYEBROWS:

I hate my eyebrows! Yup I said it….hate them. I have not always had so little regard for my brows. This problem has been a growing (or not growing) dissension over the last several years.
I am of a group of women of a certain age, that tweezed every hair in a quest for the super skinny brow. Not since Clara Bow (google her if you never heard of her) had so many young woman plucked their brow hair to a non existent arch.
I was one of the lucky ones. As fashion,changed, and common sense took over,I once again regained some of what G_D had given me.

Now 3 kids and several years later, the magical disappearing act has occurred. Poof,one day, something disturbing started changing above my eyes. AHH the dreaded middle life changes. Not only does your middle spread, but hair grows where you don’t want it and disappears from where you do.

Yes yes …I am a makeup artist. I know how to draw, paint and recreate a lovely brow. I have found products that are long lasting, waterproof etc. I have experimented with pencils ,stencils and powders but just like waking up with long lashes…I WANT MY BROWS BACK.

Today,I hit my heavenly escape otherwise known to all as #Sephora. I knew that the team there would surely understand my problem. My friendly team member listened to my concerns as her own . I was gently guided over to the #Anastasia bar, a one step stop for al things brow. I was immediately shown their new #ADVANCED BROW ENHANCER. I was instructed to apply a line of serum every evening. This step could be repeated in the am. This line specializes in everything brow. It seems that many woman have an obsession with their brows. There are pencils, stencils and powders. My Sephora expert suggested I try the Anastasia eyebrow growth serum. This product is applied twice a day to the eyebrow area. The package advises that it be applied twice a day to sparse and thinning brows. Brooke Shields….here I come. The next morning I enthusiastically applied the serum. I documented my path to brows over 8 weeks to see and share with you the results. I see a slight thickening of my brows. There definitely is a bit more pigment than before. I will let you be the judge. Please share your comments.

ALL DAY EYESHADOW AND A SKIN MIRACLE!
by lserenkin
Fun New Finds
Three new products have recently been introduced . This is my favorite time of year to search out all the new items hitting the shelves. This is when we start to pack away all the winter woolens and break free for spring.
L’OREAL REVITALIFT MIRACLE BLUR- Is an AMAZING drugstore find. This skin smoother primes and perfects. I’ve worn it under and over foundation. This “miracle” reduces the look of lines and makes pores look smaller. It can be worn alone when you want to go without foundation. It’s amazing under the eyes in that it prevents the concealer from sinking in to lines. I IMMEDIATELY bought an extra tube to put in my BRIDAL kit. Its a MUST HAVE.
If you like the look of lovely glowing skin, but are afraid of all the shiny products out there, then IT COSMETICS ,HELLO LIGHT ILLUMINATOR,is for you. This cream product adds light to the high points of the face. It offers a delicate glow. There is no glitter. Works great on dry ,dehydrated skin. Mis with foundation or apply after particularly around eyes.
Everyone loves the new cream texture eyeshadows for their long wear. Sometimes, their texture can look heavy on the eyes. An alternate texture has just been introduced by TRISH MCEVOY. EFFORTLESS EYES EYESHADOWS. There are two sets. One has a lavender base and the other brown. The brown collection is a series of deep brown,peach and golden white.Add water and brush on to eyes. Try applying with your ring finger for a gentle soft touch of color that won’t sink in to eyes. While it won’t last as long as the 24 hour creams, it does stay on all day without creasing. Its a great fast alternative.
As usual, I will be on the hunt for all the new finds that us MAKEUP JUNKIES LOVE.

SECRET FINDS FOR THE PERFECT BRIDE

SECRET FINDS FOR THE PERFECT BRIDE
Now that spring is hopefully fast approaching, it’s time to get ready for wedding season. We all have our favorite products that are tried and true when doing bridal makeup. The following are three gems that I have found help to create the perfect application.
With digital photography it is extremely important that there are no holes or spaces in the brow. The camera will see through the brow and it will appear as though you have a bald spot. WUNDERBROW GEL can be brushed thru the brow on to the skin . This great product works best if you use a slanted brow brush and transfer a small amount off the enclosed applicator. You must use it very sparingly. Follow up with a very thin pencil such as Dior UNIVERSAL.WUNDERBROW is waterproof and smudge proof. It comes with a tube of remover.
COVERGIRL OUTLAST LIPSTICK in Natural Last creates a perfect base color for almost everyone. At times I use it alone. This exceptional lipstick has a 24 hour hold. When a more muted or vibrant color is required , then an application of any lipstick in the desired hue can be used on top. At times I place lip color only in the center of the mouth to create a multi tonal effect. I find that because the base color is so long lasting , touch ups are totally unnecessary.
Almost all brides are nervous on their special day. Some break out in a rash while others break out in sweat. A sweaty bride does not fit the image of pure perfection. To the rescue 3B FACE SAVER GEL. It the the only antiperspirant designed for the face. Once again, the key is to use the gel sparingly. I have used it many times and IT WORKS!
I am sure that we all have tricks up our sleeves when doing makeup for a special occasion.
I love to exchange ideas and product finds.
Please share some of your favorite tricks and special product gems.

BEAUTIFUL LIP BUTTERS AND BALMS (a review of IT Cosmetics new lip butters)

Ah the dreaded mid-Feb. Gray skies and dry skin.)As facial and body skin dry out,
so do lips. Cracking and bleeding is never attractive. To the rescue, IT Cosmetics new LIP BALM AND HYDRATING LIPSTICK BUTTER.
The line already had their amazing vitality lip flush, which is a very moisturizing lipstick. The lipstick stays on for hours while working with you body chemistry to create your own unique color.

The new lip butters melt on your lips. They are extraordinarily hydrating. The color does not last as long as the original lip flush, but provides a soft shade that lasts much longer than other lip balms. There is a nice assortment of shades. The colors are perfect when you want your lips to look lip baby lips. Great for a day when you don’t want to try too hard .

The ingredients in these lip butters are much cleaner than your typical lip treatment product. The moisture comes from plum,cherry , argan and jojaba oil. The lip butters all also vitamin infused. It contains no parabens and are never animal tested.

This is a lip product that I will continue to use on myself. I have been using it on clients and they love it. Great for those nervous lip biting brides to use for the weeks leading up to their wedding.

SPLURGES AND SAVES FOR VALENTINES DAY

SPLURGES AND SAVES FOR VALENTINES DAY:
Every girl likes to splurge now and then, but just like chocolate, sometimes you have to cut back on your indulgences It’s the same with all those wonderful beauty products out there. There are times you have to cut back. There are many great drugstore treasures. The following is my selection of this weeks finds and buys. When it comes time for dessert, I’ll share two luxurious indulgences.
#L’oreal- VOLUMINOUS FALSE FIBER LASHES. black lacquer- I love this mascara. It creates a full volume lash with no flaking. This limited edition lacquered mascara is slightly shiner than the original. If you like a wetter look, this one is for you.
#Physicians Formula -SHIMMER STRIPS- three crayons per package. Each set designed to bring out the color of your eyes. Waterproof and long lasting. Great, non irritating tool to use along the water line.
#Physicians Formula -PH MATCHMAKER- gloss. I love this super shiny gloss. I keep a tube in my car. This lip product is applied with a brush. The color adapts to your body chemistry. The instant,bright tone stays on for hours.
#Physicians Formula-Bronze Booster- What a beautiful,lightweight product. Designed to give an airbrushed look. Light enough to use all over your face.Wear it today so he’ll think his love makes you all aglow.
NOW FOR DESSERT:
If you have to splurge, I say do it with skincare.
#Rodin-OLIO LUSSO OIL- Italian oil blended from flowers and botanicals. Has a beautiful scent of Jasmine. Instant radiance for your skin. You can also apply a few drops to dry hair. The beauty of this oil is that it is very fast absorbing therefore it is non greasy. Available at #Barneys.
When it’s time to touch up your lips, #Sisley phyto lip star is a winner. Fine particles of sparkle add to a very lightweight, non sticky gloss. If you are looking for a light red then Tourmaline is a stunning color.
That’s my quick pick.
I hope you all have a lovely VALENTINES DAY! XOXO
LAURIE
