Beau’s Inspiration: The ultimate cool girl – undone, but super chic.

 

Lip: I lined Nina’s lips with Charlotte Tilbury Lip Liner in Iconic Nude to make her lips appear slightly fuller, and the applied Avon Ultra Color Indulgence Lip Color in Petal Pink. To finish the lip, I applied mark. Total Kiss Up Plumping Gloss in Sexy.

 

Face: I wanted to give Nina a natural satin finish with a little bit of glow so used Giorgio Armani Designer Lift Smooth Firming Foundation #6 and 9. Next, I used mark. Touch & Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes All Over Face Palette in Pearly Pink on the apples of her cheeks and finished the look with mark. That’s Brilliant Face & Eye Luminizer on her cheek bones to give her a dewy radiance.

 

Eye: The eyes were the main focus of Nina’s look. I started by using mark. On The Dot Neutral Eye Color Compact, applying the darkest brown hue to the crease to create definition. Then I used mark. On The Edge Liquid Eyeliner to create a thick winged eye liner and then applied several coats of mark. Lash Act Build and Define Mascara  to the lashes. Finally, I used Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil to enhance Nina’s brows.

Tips from Skyy Hadley: Extend the life of your Manicure and Lashes

Celebrity beauty guru and owner of As U Wish Nail Spa Skyy Hadley, shares her tips on how to maintain both lash extensions and manicures, because whether you are spending your summer at the pool or sipping cocktails on rooftop bars your makeup should be the last thing on your mind.

Tips to extend the life of your lash extensions:
Allow your lashes 24 to 48 hours of setting time before getting them wet. Moisture from showers or intense workouts could reactivate the adhesive and make your lashes clump.
Avoid touching the extensions as much as possible. Lashes shed naturally on their own, buy by touching or tugging on extensions it could make them fall out faster.
Maintain your lashes by making sure your natural ones are healthy. Apply lash conditioner, baby oil, or lash lengthening serum to make sure your extensions have a strong base.
Consult your calendar. Do you plan on attending any weddings or taking that girls trip to Vegas? Opt for a more full and dramatic lash extension look that says glam but is secretly time-saving. Just want to shorten your time in front of the mirror and feel more confident? A less dramatic look is easier to maintain and still looks stunning.

Tips to extend your manicure:
Remove your polish and let your nails breathe for a good few days. If nails look discolored, squeeze some lemon into your lotion or rub lemon wedge directly onto the nail to brighten nails.
Apply a shea butter lotion or non-greasy cream to lock in moisture
Begin painting! Apply a cuticle oil to the base of your nails (or even when they are already polished), focusing around the cuticle area to hydrate and bring moisture into the skin, helping the polish last longer.

DIY tips from RPZL Headmaster especially for Brides

unnamed-8

Look One: Fishtail Crown Braid
· RPZL clip in extensions are needed to add the extra length and volume. Place the extensions in the direction that the braid will wrap.
Start the fishtail braid at the nape of the head and complete the braid
Attach the braid symmetrically around the head using bobby pins (same color as your natural hair) to secure
Leave a couple of straight strands to frame your face. These can be left straight or curled.
Spray with extra strong hair spray
Add any bridal hair accessories afterwards
An easier alternative to achieve a similar look (if you do not know how to fishtail) is to do a Braided Crown Braid, following the same steps as above, but using a traditional braid!

unnamed-9

Look 2: Sleek and Chic Low Pony
RPZL Clip in hair extensions should be added here for the dramatic length
This look can be done with or without a part
If you want a part, define the part using a comb
If hair is wavy or curly, use a flat iron to get a completely straight finish
Use a pomade to comb hair using a fine-toothed comb
The ponytail is a low pony at the nape
Use a strong elastic to secure the ponytail leaving a small portion of the hair outside of the elastic to wrap around to hide. Secure with bobby pins (same color as your natural hair).
Use a small amount of pomade on the ponytail and finish with extra strength hairspray
An easier alternative to achieving the same look is to use RPZL’s Pony in an Instant! With a simple click, you can achieve the same look. RPZL has the most expansive selection of color, texture and length ponies available and pre-blended options too that are ideal for presenting a natural look. Our Gorgeous Bride is wearing RPZL’s Daring Dark Chocolate!

unnamed-10

Look 3: Romantic Soft Curls
For this look, the hair has to be blow out with a volumizing spray at the crown. No part should be made. The division of the hair needs to be made while drying.
RPZL Clip in hair extensions should be added after drying the hair for a fuller and longer look
Tease the hair at the crown to develop the volume. Cover with a section of hair. The volume here is crucial for any bride wearing a veil.
Wrap a front segment of the hair above the forehead using pomade
Attached the hair in the back of the head at the nape. Use hair pins (same color as natural hair) to secure in place. We recommend a hair accessory to be used here if no veil will be worn.
For the soft curls, use a large barrel curling iron to set open waves. Make sure not to use a small barrel that will produce a tight wave.
Finish with an extra hold hairspray

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!
