Summertime – think “make up kit” for travel, to try a new look, or start a healthy habit using a daily SPF?
I find that the simplest approach is to narrow down the products needed to get you what you want. Kits are great way to start a new habit or routine to get those results. Often times just the thought of change is enough to stop us from taking steps that give us the results we want. It’s work, one more things to think about, etc. You know the self-talk I’m speaking of?
When asked about my makeup, clients will say, ”it’s smooth, even tone, it looks healthy and natural”. They’ll ask, “What do you use?”
I use the basics…the Colorescience Core Four. It’s so very easy to recommend because it works…if you use it! I find that the majority of all complaints; resulting from problem or aging skins; are easily corrected with these four simple steps. Once applied, with the proper color & formula match, cheek, eye and lip color go on effortlessly for a beautiful, natural look.

Got dry eyes?
Well I have lately and today while having my annual eye exam I asked my eye doctor what I could do for relief. He explained that because the majority of my activities in my work life and hobbies are of the detailed nature my eyes will be prone to dry out. He went on to say that it’s the frequency of my “blinks”. They diminish, they are less frequent. While much of my time spent concentrating as I apply permanent eye brows , permanent eyeliner and tattoo lip coloration can result in tired, drier eyes.
His recommendation was to use a high quality eye lubricant that will hydrate my eyes and make my own natural tears stay wet longer. The results… comfortable and healthy eyes. That makes sense.
When I’ve talked with several eye doctors about permanent makeup and the benefits, they say that say that it works well for many patients who have other eye disorders and conditions more serious such as ocular rosacea, blepharitis, and allergies to makeup. By eliminating the daily application of cosmetics on the eyes and lash lines patients reduce and sometimes eliminate the condition and its effects. Permanent makeup stays put and only needs refreshing every 2-5 years. They have also been impressed with the transformation a woman can experience when she has permanent eye brows. Eyebrows can dramatically change a woman’s appearance. When properly applied (with hair strokes, feathered eyebrows and/or powder techniques) , she looks younger, more rested— they just look more like the natural thing.
If you are considering permanent makeup be sure to discuss the look you are trying to achieve, see samples of the artists work (before, during and after), be sure that all of your questions and concerns are answered to your satisfaction and always approve the design and colors prior to application. Permanent makeup is a great way to look your best all day, every day.
