The term "Microblading" sounds terribly daunting and painful, I know. I personally have had my eyebrows Microbladed, and experienced the same butterflies leading up to the procedure. But let me tell you, it has been one of the greatest decisions I have ever made in my beauty career. My brow artist works at The Browery in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. I sat down with her, and I've compiled all of the tips and information that she gave to me, as well as my own experience. Enjoy!
**These recommendations, provided by me, are for those with an oily forehead and a dried out chin/jaw. Otherwise known as combination skin. My skin is also very sensitive with pink pigmentation.**
Most over-the-counter acne treatments contain harsh ingredients that can do your skin more harm than good. The next time you go to wash your face, take a look at the ingredients on the back. Chances are, you'll find things such as fragrance, sodium lauryl sulfate, butylated hydroxyanisole, parabens, polyethylene, retinyl acetate, and many more chemical compounds neither of us can probably pronounce. But what are these chemicals' purpose and what do they really do to our bodies?
Recently, my husband and I, as APA editors, decided with the onset of our midlife crises to try and consider a way to look younger, but Botox and plastic surgery were not an option for us. After some discussion and thought, we decided to look into the process of whitening our teeth. We were hoping to hide years of coffee drinking, and subsequently our ages.
Eyelash extensions are blessings to do those who are not born with thick and long eyelashes. Getting them is one of the effective ways when it comes to giving more volume and life to the eyelashes.
When I first went to LUSH looking for something for my chronically dry, red skin. I was given several recommendations. The Aqua Marina cleanser, Fresh Farmacy cleanser, Greased Lightening spot treatment, Imperialis moisturizer, but the most amazing product was the Full of Grace serum. This is a small light pink oval. The smell is fresh and a bit earthy. It’s a naked product so it is sold without packaging and is simply a solid bar that you swipe on your face. It provides an amazing extra bit of moisture and I find it very calming to my skin as well. Its marketed as a serum to help maintain elasticity, moisture, and glow. It is simply a wonderful addition to hydrating my face and helping me look my best.
Skincare seems to be the up and coming trend of 2019. Considering the increasing popularity of self-care and the viral sensation that was the glass skin routine, 2018 had quite a big skincare to do and 2019 will be no different except for different trends. With this rise in taking care of your skin on the rise, I was intrigued and began testing and doing research to discover my perfect skincare routine. Now I am here to share the knowledge that I have obtained from my research.
Face it! We are all getting older! However, it beats the alternative! Unfortunately, as we age, we all have to deal with confidence sabotaging fine lines, a bit of sagging, dark circles under our eyes, perhaps an unsightly frown line between our eyebrows, skin tags, age spots, or uneven skin tone.
Eyebrows are a lot like body types: there isn’t a universal shape that’s right for everyone. However, there is a standard set of guidelines that can help any gal (or guy) achieve the picture-perfect brows they desire.
I can be so lazy when it comes to taking care of my skin, as I'm sure a lot of you can be too. But when we do take care of it, it's almost worth it, am I right? The reason I say almost is because the face masks we tend to use just don't make that much of a difference to us. We spend so much money on these different masks, that tell you it 'rejuvenates the skin' or 'brightens up your face.' Most of that is just BS. But I'm here to tell you how you can make face masks that can actually make a difference, and how you can save that money.
Cassie was a bright seventeen-year-old who not once has dated a boy, worn makeup or smoked cigarettes. Her lips have never tasted the sweetness of alcohol, as she was voted in high school the most likely to succeed. She had a very bright future in front of her. She never had a real good relationship with her mother but admired the way she carried herself and the image she portrayed. She was a very beautiful woman.
Lash extensions are a popular service that add length and thickness to your natural eyelashes by having a synthetic lash applied to each of your lashes individually. This takes the time that you would normally spend putting on mascara or false lashes out of your routine. They can look very natural or you can go full glam. Many lash growing serums can stain your skin or harm your natural lashes. If your natural lashes are compromised, the lash extensions won’t last as long.
