Good morning Beauties! Wishing you all a very Happy New Year! Today I wanted to share a few of my favorite tips for keeping your lashes healthy. Day after day we are following countless beauty trends to achieve the look we desire, but by far the most prominent trend in 2017 was eyelash extensions. We’re all a little guilty of wanting those sky-high lashes and this semi-permanent option allows you to roll out of bed looking like you just applied 3 coats of mascara without all the fuss. As per my November post “ALL GLAMMED UP” , I was drawn in by the trend and had the most talented lash artist create the most glamorous set of Mega Lashes for me.…

Each day I strive to live a longer healthier life. I am always trying to improve what I put into my body, so why not be more aware of what I put on my body too. The products we use can affect our health as much as what we eat.

Proper makeup removal is an essential step to keeping your skin healthy. Going to bed with your makeup on will leave your pores clogged, preventing them from naturally balancing the PH of your skin.
You should always be washing your face twice a day. When you cleanse your skin in the am, you are washing away all the toxins that were released while you slept. When you cleanse the skin again in the evening, you are removing all the makeup and impurities that may have accumulated on your skin throughout the day.
3 steps to proper skin care:
- Cleanse – start by removing all the makeup from your eyes and lips with a gentle makeup remover and cotton pad, then wash your face with a cleanser best suited to your skin type.
With such a wide range of cosmetic and beauty products available on the market today, it is very important to know your skin type when selecting which products will best suit your skin care needs. Using the right products will help to nourish, protect and balance your skin, providing you with the perfect canvas for makeup application.
There are several types of skin, do you know which category you fall into?

How to care for : use a moisturizer meant for normal skin and an alcohol free toner
