Beautify with Derma E

Beautify Your Skin with Derma E Purifying Toner Mist and 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask!

Summer is a time when you want to purge your skin of all toxins to leave it clean, clear and radiant. Recently, I came across two products that work well together to decongest your pores and rebalance your skin. The result? Beautiful, youthful skin with that summer glow!

Derma E Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask contains marine algae and activated charcoal. It decongests pores of excess sebum, dirt and toxins. And it also gently exfoliates away harmful micro pollutants. Upon application, it actually looks black like charcoal! I massaged it on my face and concentrated on areas such as the chin, forehead and nose. It is cool and soothing and dries to a clay-like consistency.

After you remove it with a warm cloth, you skin is left silky smooth and so soft! I followed up with Derma E Purifying Toner Mist to refresh my skin. This product also fortifies your skin against environmental pollutants with marine algae and green tea antioxidants.

This two-step system is so easy to do and the results are amazing! I followed up with my moisturizer and was ready to start my day! Quick, convenient and with miraculous results, Derma E, you made my day! http://dermae.com/

SHINE ON with a little Sun Bum

_10585756We all know the importance of protecting our skin from the sun. This time of year, my family is exposed to the sun more than usual. Between the pool, beach, outdoor activities and a vacation or two, they do make an effort to protect their skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. They have sunscreen for their skin, sunglasses to protect their eyes and hats to protect their heads but what about their hair! Hats help a little but who wants to put a hat on when you are having a great hair day? The hair especially needs protection from the sun, especially color treated, dry and brittle hair.  

Sun Bum Shine-On has come to your hair’s rescue. Consider Shine-On a sunscreen for your hair. This lightweight styling oil, which smells amazing,  hydrates, restores and strengthens hair while protecting it from the sun and other outdoor elements. Sun Bum Shine-On is infused with  sea botanicals and nourishing coconut, argan, sweet almond oils, sunflower seed oils and banana leaf which all aid in adding shine, softness and gives an amazing coconut fragrance to your hair.

Sun Bum Shine-On offers UPF, an ultraviolet protection factor, is Color-safe and made without Parabens, alcohol- and is cruelty-free.

Apply Sun Bum Shine-On to clean damp hair and leave-in. Your hair is now ready to face the outdoors looking fantastic. I just applied Sun Bum Shine-On to my dry hair and has calmed down some of my fly-away hair, and I can smell the coconut in my hair. Applying Sun Bum Shine-On on dry hair also works wonders for split ends. Did I mention my hair feels soft and silky as ever. Make Sun Bum Shine-On part of your hair’s daily routine, you definitely want to keep your hair looking healthy as you Shine-On!

Lindsey Vonn’s hair at ESPY’s by scunci stylist Laura Polko

New scünci stylist, celebrity hair stylist, Laura Polko and her latest look styled on Lindsey Vonn for the ESPY’s last night! She will be an incredible expert to use for upcoming hair stories, she can comment on almost anything J Please let me know if you are working on any upcoming hair stories for her to be a part of or to call in any scünci hair accessories!
Getting the look of Lindsey Vonn at The Espy’s, from Laura Polko, Scunci Celebrity Stylist

From Laura herself, here are her tips for getting the look!
1. I started with the hair wet, prepped with mousse at the roots through to the ends and serum on the ends. I rough dried until about 80% of the moisture was out.
2.Then using Scunci hair clips, I sectioned the hair from ear to ear and began blow drying with a mason brush in the back. Moving to the sides I directed the hair down.
3. For the front I worked with Lindsey to find a side part she liked. From there I directed the section down and over to get a swoop that wasn’t in her face too much. I flat ironed the ends to keep smooth
4. For little flyaways, I used a little clay and finished out with a couple no slip grip scunci bobby pins in the back to keep one side tucked and secured them!

Stand out above the crowd with Prestige

Prestige Cosmetics Total Intensity line is just what it says it is…INTENSE. I always loved adding bright vibrant colors into my makeup looks but sometimes, with my pale skin, no matter how intense they were they just never seemed to show up. With the Total Intensity line now us “porcelain canvas’ ” can rock out some vibrant colors. As you could see in my video (posted below) there is a lot of colors to choose from. Let me break down each one for you so you can get up close & personal with each one.

Total Intensity Prestige Cosmetics line (L-R) Lip Crayons, Mascara, Eye Liners, Shadow Crayon, Intensity Eye Shadows

Total Intensity Prestige Cosmetics line (L-R) Lip Crayons, Mascara, Eye Liners, Shadow Crayon, Intensity Eye Shadows

First off lets talk lips. The Total Intensity Lip Crayon is a smooth, luscious lip crayon that is long lasting and packed with color. Its discreet packaging makes it easily transportable and the greatest thing about the Total Wear Lip Crayons is when applying there is no need to add lip liner. Unless you want to. With its pointed edge it makes applying lips so much easier.

Now lets move on to the eyes. Let’s talk Total Intensity Color Rush colors. The design reminds me of a seashell. I received the “On the Prowl” which I love that name because it reminds me of my favorite animal.. the tiger. On The Prowl Color Rush is perfect combination of high, even pigment, and controlled application. It also has skin benefiting agents and looks gorgeous as an accent color. They work extremely well with the Fierce Color Eye shadows. I have Hocus Pocus & Obsession which are also great for use as liquid eyeliner. More high pigment and fun colors the possibilities are endless. Have fun with this one!

Watch video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zoo7ldglVxU

When wanting a metallic, “foiled” on look, go for the True Metals from Total Intensity. Does not crease, easily buildable application so you can go as bold or as subtle as you like. I have used “Sterling” even wet and got an even more intense look. So much fun!
Now onto the trios. Three intense long lasting pigments packed into one package. Perfect for a “high fashion” edgy look with the three colors. Again very highly pigmented, long lasting and intense lol. Smoke & Mirrors will give you that perfect smoky eye. And that brings me to the eye shadow stick. A creamy textured eye shadow crayon that does not smudge and is long lasting giving you an incredibly bold pop of color. Jungle War green makes eye colors pop!

And of course last but not least, no eye look is complete without eyeliner and mascara. The Total Intensity eyeliners are waterproof, last up to 10 hours and have beautiful deep black undertones. This really makes all the colors accent your natural eye color beautifully. I tried to take off my eyeliner and had to wash my eyes 3 times just to get it completely off. They mean waterproof! Then those lashes need some intensity as well. With its uniquely designed wand. you can get the perfect coating and long luscious lashes instantly. Does not come off and wont smudge.
So if you want to “stand out above the crowd” check out http://www.prestigecosmetics.com/total-intensity.html Total Intensity line. Have some Intense fun now!
