Its summer so everyone likes to lighten up a bit on their make-up. The new formulas in makeup provide coverage without looking like you have a mask on. Our new hydrating foundation is so light and does not fall into fine lines and creases. Tinted moisturizers offer you a light coverage and SPF.Our new gloss gives you just the right amount of shine and moisture for your lips. The new gel eyeliners are the best. The application is so effortless and the staying power is the best. No smudging or fading. We have quite a selection of mascaras available. Our new lush mascara is wonderful for all of us that have successfully completed the "GrandeLash" program and our lashes are so fabulous and do not need 3 coats of mascara or any lengthening due to the fact that they are so long already. Our baked blushes have a wow color impact but when applied go on sheer.I want to talk a little about the life span of make-up:
Mascaras and Liquid Eyeliners; these tubes of moist liquid can breed bacteria and should only be kept 3 to 4 months.
Liquid foundations; 1 year, keeping them much longer they can start to get dried out and can change color.
Loose and pressed powder; 2 years, bacteria grows slower in a powder because they contain very little water.
Pencil lip & eye liner; 2 years, sharpen every few uses to keep them clean.
Lipstick & glosses; 2 years, unless they start to smell or feel waxy.
Now is the time of year to add a day eye cream that has an SPF if you don’t already use one. Do not use eye cream with SPF while you sleep. Day creams with SPF are important all year round, in the summer you should have a sunblock for your face to be used on top of your day cream with SPF. Re-apply often if out in the sun.
