Let's talk a bit about the make-up for this fall season. In this blog post you will hear me talk about Bio-individuality and I am going to apply that to talking about the make-up for this season. We look in magazines and on the fashion runways and we see all kinds of looks. From blue shadow to green shadow and even red shadow...every color cheek with harsh drawn lines to hollowed out cheeks and lip colors that either scream at you or you can't even see them. What will work for you? That's what matters here not what's trending. But I will challenge you to try something new and different, hey you never know. Maybe you want to change the eyeliner color you wear or maybe you just want to apply it differently. Maybe you want to try a bold lip if you wear nude or vice versa. I will encourage everyone to find a RED lipstick that works for you. Yours could be on the blue side or the orange side or the pink side. Could be soft or bold, or glossy or matte...could be what makes you a little uncomfortable and that's sometimes a good thing! "DO ONE THING EVERYDAY THAT SCARES YOU" here's a tip when wearing a dark lipstick, line a little outside the lip line and apply the lipstick with a lip brush. Dark lips will make your lips appear smaller and if it's very dark applying it with a brush will make it go on even and precise.
In the words of George Burns..
YOUNG. OLD. JUST WORDS.
I agree so keep your thinking young and your skincare on point!
What works best:
1: Commit to SPF everyday all year round and use a skin resurfacer in your skincare regimen.
2: SPF in your makeup is not enough unless it's a 30
3: MOST IMPORTANT...APPLY SPF LIKE IT'S YOUR JOB! THIS IS THE #1 ANTI-AGING PRODUCT ON THE MARKET
The simple answer for younger looking skin is start early.
Don't do the wait and see thing, wrinkles are coming that's for sure.There is so much product out there it can be overwhelming. That's why you have me!
There is nothing wrong with face lifts and fillers but that is not skincare. I can't comprehend someone spending all that time and money having that done and not caring about the products they put on their skin. No procedure gives you glowing healthy skin. For that matter no skin care product can do it all alone. Skin issues are directly related to gut issues. YOUR WORLD IS ON YOUR PLATE...look at the food you eat it is all connected. Look at your lifestyle and your mindset and thoughts. It's all connected. When your gut bacteria is off your skin will appear dull or worse yet you experience rashes, eczema, rosacea, and or acne. Starve your gut of bad bugs eat pre and probiotics, take probiotics. Eat healthy fiber. All this will help rebalance your good flora.
