The Fountain of Youth

I was looking at the Oprah Winfrey website and came across and interesting story on how the Japanese keep their skin and hair in such a youthful state. The article/web video was great! I and posting the link so you all can see for yourself. This story got me to thinking. I know that we Americans are very into eating. Some of the food that we put into our body is literally toxic. Many of us are much more cautious when it comes to what we put on our faces. That's the sad truth.

We need to pay closer attention to the things we actually ingest. Water should be a staple, fruits in vegetables should be a ritual and low sodium diets will also help us create a fountain of youth effect here it the states.

Exercise is something that also makes a big impact on how our skin reads visually. If we are active then we keep that blood flow going and our complexion looks much more radiant and healthy. It's a great idea to stay away from processed foods because they are hard for the body to break down. If the body can't break it down fast enough, you'll notice that you feel bloated and also tiered.

Multivitamins are essential for the body and skin. They help you stay healthy and also insure that your body is getting all of the nutrients that it needs to look and feel its best. Please take a look at the video and gets some tips from the beautiful Japan.

Bridal Make-Up

One question that I hear very often is, "Should I hire a makeup-artist?" My answer is, yes! yes! and more yes! I know that some brides are a little nervous because they don't want to look weighed down with make-up and I don't blame them. However, this is why it is important to find and experienced artist that will take their time during the trial and during your actual event.

As a artist, I feel that it is my duty to report that not all make-up artist are equal. You will have to determine if you have found the right artist. For now, I can offer a feel tips to help you out.

How to find the right make-up artist:

  • Ask for references

  • Check out their website

  • Ask to see their portfolio

  • Take a look at their personal appearance

  • Google the business and check reviews

  • Ask for your trial photos to be sent to you to view

  • Make sure they are patient

  • Try to find an artist that does only one event a day

  • Try to find and artist who is also a licenced esthetician

  • The artist should be clean avoid cross-contamination of their makeup

Enoy this happy occassion and I hope this information was helpful!

Spring into Color!

Okay, I know some of you out there are probably thinking..."It's time for Spring....and I have no idea what to wear or how to spruce up my look." Well, this short but sweet article is going to offer a few quick and easy tips to Spring into color.. nice and easy!

I like to keep things short and easy for my morning routine. For instance, I don't like to take more than 5 minutes in the morning for makeup. Do you all agree that 5 minutes is pretty doable? I hope so because it's really not a long time at all but in those five minutes you can truly make a beauty statement that's unique.

After you have washed and moisturized your face, follow these brief steps to achieve a lasting glow and make and impression.

Step 1-Dust on a mineral makeup that is your color and cover your entire face
Step 2-Use a mineral bronze to amp up existing coverage (don't over do it please)
Step 3-Use a dark brown liner to line the bottom of your eyes
Step-4-use a pinkish sparkle for your eye lid/add in a light to medium bronze in your crease
Step 5-Use a nice mascara to really pop your eyes out
Step 6-Add in pretty peach or light pink blush to the apples of your cheek
Step 7- Use a light pink or peach lip gloss to finish

These short but simple makeup tips will help you achieve a lasting glow that really stands out. Of course, I recommend coming into the studio for a complete consultation with our professional recommendations but if you have some items at home that will help you achieve this look, do your thing!
