Liquid Biocell Skin certified fabulousThere are so many different products out there to help you look and feel better. Liquid BioCell Skin is advanced science that is clinically designed to counteract wrinkles from the inside-out while reducing the enzyme that can make your skin age. I don’t know about you but I wouldn’t mind if I stopped aging. With my 30th birthday right around the corner I was really excited to try this.  Not that I have a lot of wrinkles but I defiantly want to prevent them.

The Liquid BioCell Skin is formulated with 14 antioxidant phytonutrient fruits, ceramides, vitamin C, pomegranate, and bamboo, green tea and grape seed extracts.  These ingredients will help promote healthier hair, eyes, gums and nails and also help improve hydration and support joints and connective tissue.  So not only does it help make your skin look fabulous but it can also make your joints feel better. They have done a lot of clinical test and have seen some amazing results with this. You can see the results when you check out their website They did 37 clinical trials.

Liquid biocell skin is a product that you just drink twice a day so its pretty easy and it tastes like juice. This product you should see visible results by 12 weeks. I have only been using it a few weeks now but I am excited to see the difference after a month.

  • Difference between “Natural” and “Organic” Products

    “Natural” products don’t have any regulation, so any company can name their products “natural” if they have a few ingredients that come from the earth. Natural products range from some pretty good companies trying to do the right thing to hundreds of personal care companies that are simply using the term “natural” for marketing purposes.
    However, “Organic” goes way beyond “Natural”.
    If a product is labeled Organic on the front of the package and sold in the State of California, which has extremely rigorous organic regulations, then the products must contain USDA certified organic ingredients from a farm that uses a system of farming that maintains and replenishes soil fertility without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides or fertilizers.

    Did you know that: Your Skin Absorbs over 64% of what is placed on it.

    Think about it … physicians prescribe prescription “patches” that are readily absorbed through the skin … hmmm … but what about your moisturizer? Do you know that most conventional beauty products contain pesticides, methyl, butyl and propyl parabens, propylene or butylene glycols, petroleum, sulfates, PEGs, TEA, DEA, phthalates, GMO, silicones, artificial dyes or fragrances, formaldehyde, and more. Do you really want all these on your skin?

    Juice Beauty

    I have been a fan of the Juice Beauty brand since I first tried the Blemish Clearing Serum. If you haven't tried that, you must!! When I heard they had a makeup line I was anxious to try it! If the facts of using organic products haven't convinced you then trying this makeup collection out for yourself will! You can feel the difference literally on your skin and feel better about putting this makeup on knowing it will improve skin's overall appearance.

Last week Burt’s Bees was thrilled to steer the makeup look of Steven Alan’s fashion show.

Steven Alan’s shared vision of natural beauty was the perfect complement to Burt’s Bees notion that nature is the original color expert. The likeminded brands agreed that the collection was best paired with a natural makeup look that placed full emphasis on the color of the lip.

The look was inspired by the brilliant, rich color of our lips during youth. “To bring this concept to life, I began by matching the shades of the new Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon collection to the tone of the models’ natural lip color,” said Burt’s Bees lead makeup artist Katey Denno. “The Lip Crayons deliver vivid color, great payoff and extreme moisture – all with a matte finish – so I used them to build coverage and restore the youthful hue of the models’ lips.”

  • Summer is my favorite season but when it comes to fashion and makeup Fall is where it's at! The most trendy and styled clothing paired with makeup looks I can actually where in public and feel good about. Fall / Winter 2014 is probably my favorite so far with metallics, illuminated skin tones, better bold lips and faint eyeshadow eyes leading the way. Which is your favorite look?

  • Illuminated skin certified fabulous makeup fall winter 2014 trends beautyDull skin is not in this winter and the illuminated look carries over from summer into the colder seasons! I am grateful this is staying around because I love the look of illumination on certain areas of my face to make me look more awake, alive and glowing! It would be hard for me to give this up in style or not anyway :)

    The Rimmel London 3D lip glosses are INCREDIBLE!!! Don't mistaken these for ordinary glosses...somehow they did create them to be 3D and the dimensions looks FAB on the lips! It's like comparing a glass window with stained glass comparison, right? I wore the Popcorn for Two color for a wedding I was in over the summer...flawless!

    When I started the company I had one product, Amazing Base, and with it launched the whole new category of mineral makeup. We are celebrating this milestone with new innovations and will continue to deliver personal, uplifting beauty that is as good for the skin as it is beautiful to wear.

  • reverse cat eye makeup beauty trends certified fabulous fall winter 2014
    Another of top fave looks! I've been rocking this out already and I love how sexy and simple it is to create! I put a nude or white tone shadow on my top lid with shades from the Too Faced: Boudoir EyesThen I take the Mary Kay black eyeliner and draw back and forth across the water line until it creates a thick line under my lash line. I then trace the line into the inner corner and a bit on the top inner corner of my lid. Then extend the line out away from the outter corner to create the cat eye. To lock in the look I will use the Mary Kay Gel Liner for a "wet" look or I will take the French Tickler color in the Boudoir Eyes palette and cover the eyeliner line, which also creates a smokey look. Mary Kay has a great makeup setting spray I use after this is all applied.

I believe that foundation is best applied with your fingers and the heat of your hands, especially since when I use brushes the foundation seems to absorb more in the brush than on my skin...but that never happened with this amazing bareSkin foundation brush!

Everyone likes to make a bold statement when it comes to makeup and style, but in the summer that seems hard to do without looking too made-up or over-the-top. To lighten your makeup look and still add in some flair I found 5 ways to help one feature stand out the most! There are more ways, of course, but these are the most understated looks in my opinion :) The key is to choose ONE from the five...don't over do it, less is more, especially in the summer. What's your favorite? 

Bold Beauty Basics - summer -certified fabulous - GLAM GLOW

Get glowing! Liquid illuminizers are great to wear alone or you can mix it into your favorite foundation, BB cream, CC Cream or tinted moisturizer. A little goes a long way, so don't over do it (especially if you have oily skin) or it could look like you have a sweat problem! One pump should be fine. Also make sure your using the correct tone, if you have fair/ light skin tick to the white/ pink tones like JOSIE MARAN Argan Illuminizer. If you have medium/ tan skin  you can go for the golds and bronze tones, like Gerard Cosmetics BB Plus Illumination. Same for illuminating/ highlighting  powders.

Bold Beauty Basics - summer -certified fabulous -BROWS

Brave Bold Brows! I personally like the soft pencil because it can mold easily in-between my brow hairs and I have more control and consistency. Powders can give a less abrasive and sharpe look and you can always build upon the coverage until you like it.
