Green Beauty!

In honor of Earth Day lets discuss natural, green beauty solutions. We’re talking about making your own ‘beauty products’ to treat your hair, skin, lips, nails and eyes all with natural ingredients. Click through the slides above and check out the tips below for a Greener Beauty today and everyday!

1. There’s two amazing ways nature gives you a brighter smile: oil pulling and baking soda. Detox your mouth by swishing some Coconut Oil and reduce stains in your teeth with nature’s tooth paste; Baking Soda.

2. Sexy hair means healthy, strong, soft and shiny locks. Naturals oils are great at helping your hair stay hydrated and smooth. Mixing some Olive Oil with a very ripe Avocado to make a paste and apply it all over your hair. Leave in for 20 minutes then wash for great hair ready for the Summer.

3. You can highlight your hair without bleach and the green way is not only delicious but also keeps working overtime with the help of sunlight. Make some very strong Chamomile Tea and add a cup of Lemon Juice, mix together in a spay bottle and apply where you like. Leave in as long as needed and then wash. Overtime the sun’s rays will lighten your hair even more in those areas you targeted.

4. Great skin starts from within! That’s with plenty of water, exercise and healthy antioxidants. Some of nature’s best gifts for you skin are berries. These help you detox, helps skin elasticity, plus the texture and complexion of your skin. Make a Very Berry smoothy for natural glowing skin by mixing all the berries you can find: a cup of strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and fresh squeezed orange juice plus a table spoon of honey.

Festival Beauty!

festival_1Coachella 2014 is on its way and we want you to be ready with laid back festival style & beauty! The key is in picking items you can carry with you and apply with ease that are long lasting and weightless on your skin. The perfect boho look not just for Coachella but a day out in the park, road trip, day date or shopping- just casual but super chic. Start by applying sunblock to your skin at least 15 minutes before the rest of your makeup. Then grab your foundation and apply it as needed, evening out your complexion. Swipe some highlighter on your cheekbones and bridge of your nose for emphasis. Use a light tint on the apples of your cheeks for a natural dewy flush. Use a long lasting shimmer eyeshadow for that spark of light on the lids. Complete with winged liquid eye liner. Curl lashes and top with a coat of mascara.  Finish with a matte red-orange lip like our new Spring Velvety Matte Lip Crayon in Poppy Nude. Pair with a spring-toned mani-pedi!
