I want to start this newsletter off this Fall season sharing something I read and something I believe to be truth...Embracing the real you is the beauty trend for this Fall 2016 season. Each and every day you walk outside be proud of who you are no matter how tall or short, thick or thin,curvy or not so curvy, straight hair or curly hair, good skin or bad, long lashes or short,the list can go on. It doesn't matter. Who you are and what you want to be makes the best trend there can be!
24/7 all year round we need good skin care. Skin care as well as makeup changes with the seasons...With skin care it's not always about the trend, it's about the routine and using the best skin care for your skin. Changing cleansers and toners when necessary as well as moisturizers. The routine will always consist of sun protection, cleansing, toning, exfoliating, eye cream, day and night cream. In addition to treatments for aging, pigmentation, and acne. And in a perfect routine a mask. Be sure you are doing the best you can for your skin.
This may not be 24/7 for all of us but I am sure we all want to look our best 24/7.This Fall it seems Alice Cooper is the new "Beauty Muse" when it comes to Eye liner. Push the boundaries with black eye liner is what Bazaar magazine has to say.Use peach tone shadow, try a black lip , and glitter is for grownups! More good news red lips are here to stay.
Switching to a darker lip for Fall is nothing new, black could be new for you. I have to share I was a witch (dressed as one) last Halloween and a cat and I loved my black lips. I think you will be seeing me in black this season. If black doesn't work out we have dark shades that may work for you.Something they are calling "Baby Lips" is in for the Fall, soft pretty pouts with a touch of lip gloss or soft pink to look "child like." The no lipstick dark eye is still a look. And the dark lip no eye makeup look is in.
BIG FOCUS ON LASHES #grandelash
Smokey eyes are still a thing with just a bit of a tweak...by adding a smudge and some smoke to the bottom lashes. Also adding a bit of gold glitter to the smokey eye works!Especially under the brow bone.
Natural Brows are the thing. YES!!!! Love this, keep them as thick as your brow can be. #grandebrow
Glowing Skin / Radiant Skin...Always starts with skin care. Remember treat skin don't cover it up. Fall 2016 says let shine happen where it's suppose to, add a hint of pink where you flush, a tinted lip balm and some mascara and you're done!
Peach shadow says Spring to most, but Fall 2016 is saying give it a chance to prove itself pretty this Fall
So when Runway models are wearing fur and velvet, crazy black liner and black lips, carrying their bags differently and telling us to wear socks with sandals and boots with yoga pants remember to "JUST BE YOU" AND THAT WILL BE THIS SEASONS FALL FASHION TREND.
Carpe Diem, Peace & Love
The goal for summer is to be protected from the harmful rays of the sun. Wear sunblock. Re-apply sunblock.
Season change make us aware of changes. We wear lighter moisturizer and lighter makeup in the Summer months. Our new shadows are neutral, slightly shimmery and go on with ease. The packaging allows easy travel with our duo case and our triple case. Refills available as well as individule shadows. Also back in stock is our white pencil for lining inside the eye. This will make the whites of your eyes appear whiter and make your eyes look bigger. Something cool and fun it's called Transformer...this is a clear glycerin solution that transforms any powder product into a liquid eyeliner. A softer look for summer!
Staying hydrated is a must for Summer. Dehydrating your body will make your heart work harder. It is recommended you drink 1/2 of your weight. For example, this would mean a 150 lb. person should drink 75oz. of water.
Looking to Detox...here is a green juice recipe. Easy and Simple.
Try this in the morning or before dinner. Treat this as a beverage not a meal replacement.
Use organic veggies.
4 cups baby kale leaves
2 english cucumbers
2 green apples,cored
4 celery stalks
1 romaine heart
1 cup fresh cilantro
freshly squeezed juice of 1 lemon
1. Run all the ingredients through a juicer except the lemon juice.
2. Stir in the lemon juice and divide between 2 glasses drink immediately.

Your Fall/Winter skin care needs to begin now. Exfoliate and moisturize. And remember ending Summer does not mean you stop using sun block. Sunblock is all year round!!! Remember the skin care you used for Summer is not the skin care you can use for Winter.
Fall 2015 make-up....As great as the bold looks look on the runways we need to create a look that's right for our daily lives. Fashion week showed us beautiful berry lips to flushed cheeks. Smokey eyes to red lips. Strong defined brows are still the way to go. Bold lips with soft eyes is another great look.
Our Fall collection has new waterproof lip liners, new shades in our baked blushes, and of course new lipstick shades. The new eye shadow collection this season was put together to make it easy for you...4 colors in each compact.
Eyebrows frame the face and accentuate the eyes. But, like your skin and hair, brows can show your age. They become sparse and patchy or course and unruly. Years of over tweezing can leave brows lacking. With the proper products brows can regain their youthful appearance and fullness. Some options are our fabulous GrandeBrow grower, brow tinting, and the many brow fillers we sell. You can acheive the look that works best for you!
Setting the canvas for makeup is very important... First "GoodSkin" of course then the proper face primer, shadow primers, lip conditioners, pore refining face primers, mattifying lotions and powders, foundation and or BB creams or CC creams just to name a few of the tricks of the trade. Priming your face for makeup will allow the makeup to last all day and look its best. Our new soft focus powders and our hydrating face powders never look heavy or cakey. There are so many lipstick formulas we offer as well.
The tools of the trade. This is what makes the difference when you are appling your makeup. Brushes are key!When applying eye shadow, face powders, or blush, size matters.
I want Fall 2015 to be "ALL ABOUT YOU" you are worth it and it matters, lets do this together!
Happy Fall and Much Beauty coming your way...Let it begin on the inside and the outside will shine.
As always thank you for your trust in me.
Carpe Diem & Namaste,
Skin...this is the time of year when we see a lot of skin! Arms, legs, chest, backs, back of the neck, ears, hands. All of the above need protection! All year round and especially now. Sunblock needs to be applied everyday and properly. Don't skimp on the amount you use you need it to protect you. You also need to re-apply often. Summer is a time when we wear less clothing and less make-up. It is not the time of year to use less skin care. Lighter moisturizer works not no moisture.
Self tanners are a great way to enhance color and not over do the sunning. The new formulas have very little scent and go on without streaking. ( Tip: Exfoliate first and put a small amount of cream on your elbows, knees, and ankles)We sell a product called Fake Bake that works with everyones abilities.
Sun Block & Self Tanner are all 25% off until May 30,2015

A quote out of Vogue, "THE BEST INVESTMENT YOU CAN MAKE NEXT SEASON IS A STANDING APPOINTMENT WITH YOUR FACIALIST"
The fashion fascination this season is clean- come as you are skin!
The Hair update... "UNDONE HAIR" Low maintenance does not mean NO maintenance. Its not about the blow out it's Good Color- A Good Length- and in Good Condition.

Must do and haves...Monthly facials and at the very least change of season facials. Salon peels can be done weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly with facials. Home peels a must to be done minimum weekly and home masks the same. Must be done!!! Makes all the difference in your skin. Any problem just see me weekly I will do it for you.
NEVER SLEEP IN MAKEUP. This causes your skin to age.
We have some new anti-aging, brightening, oily skin serums coming out from Valmy. Christine Valmy products are all natural plant based products.
For the eye area, Valessence 100 from Valmy is an eye cream that is formulated to go on the lid. Most are not.

New this season are Plumping lip glosses, balmy, ultra hydrating gloss plumps with sheer color and high shine to create the appearance of fuller, softer, more youthful looking lips.
New! Soft Focus Powders: Weightless, undetectable and irresistibly soft, this pressed powder innovation helps even skin tone, minimize shine and create subtle, natural radiance.

The very cold weather has taken it's toll on your skin. So some tips and reminders to try to help that...All year round I say that if your skin is balanced meaning properly exfoliated and hydrated chances are you will not feel the change as much on your skin. We all feel the change but if its drastic and you are flaky and itchy and your makeup is not going on smooth then that's extreme and you need to fix that. If you are using the same moisturizer in Winter as Summer you will have a problem. If after you cleanse your skin you feel tight and flaky that is a problem as well. We need a creamy or oil cleansers or both in the winter. You may have to alternate using two different moisturizers at night through the winter. You need to never leave the house without a moisturizer (EVER) and I suggest wearing foundation for additional protection during the day. And Sunblock all year round. Once you have made changes to your skin routine you may have to address hydrating from the inside as well.
EXFOLIATE: using the correct exfoliator for you and knowing to not over or under do it.
MOISTURIZER: You need to know if your skin is dry or dehydrated there is a difference so if your product is not working then more then likely its wrong for you.
CLEANSING: What you use, how you use it, temperature of the water, soap, creamy cleanser, oil cleanser. All makes a difference. You need the product that works for you.
HYDRATING FROM THE INSIDE:
WATER: You have to drink it! Add fruit to it if you have to some suggestions, frozen berries, apples, lemon, anything that helps you get it down.
OMEGAS: Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids. They will limit water loss in skin cells, and keep you looking and feeling refreshed. They will also soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. SALMON, TUNA, OLIVE OIL, ANCHOVIES, WALNUTS,ALMONDS, & AVOCADO!
SILICA: key element for healthy bones and teeth. Also will help hydrate your skin and maintain elasticity. Found in fruits and veggies...you just need to leave the skin on!
Vitamins need to be a part of your diet it is not always easy to eat enough of them and I strongly suggest taking vitamins. Eating foods rich in Vitamin B and C is very important as we age. Vitamin B (Proteins & Whole Grains)can restore collagen. Vitamin C also helps with the formation of collagen, and therefore can reduce wrinkles and increase hydration. Examples: ORANGES, STRAWBERRIES, GRAPEFRUITS, & BROCCOLI!
Limit junk food... but we all have cravings now don't we.
Everyone complains about their hands and cuticles this time of year.
First I have to say this if you are not using my Christine Valmy Hand Aid you should be. Second, I've said this before anti bacterial soaps are not good for you, sitting under lights at the nail salon is also not good.
Applying a cuticle oil( I sell Apricot Oil) every day can be very helpful. And I read soaking hands in a warm basin of whole milk for several minutes will help remove dead cells and soften cuticles. The lactic acid in the milk is what does this, the natural fats help replenish dry skin. (I'll be picking up my whole milk today for sure)
I will just say this removing fats from your diet is not a good thing....eat the good fats your whole body will benefit!
EAT, DRINK, SLEEP, RELAX, BE KIND, BREATHE, LOVE, PEACE
