Makeup Highlighting Tips

 

 

What tips do you have for highlighting and defining brow and cheek bones? Use Gabriel Bone eye shadow or ZuZu Luxe Platinum eye show to highlight and define brow bone. Tip: Use Uber or Hope lipstick on top of brow highlighter, because of the silver shimmer when the light hits it that area will be highlighted. For cheek bones contour with blush just below the cheek bones.

How do you maintain a ‘bronzed’ look, but don’t over do it for the winter time? Only apply where the sun would naturally hit the skin; bridge of nose, cheeks, hairline and jaw line. We suggest our bronzers in either D-28 or D-32. If a bronzer with no shimmer is desired you can use Gabriel Dual Powder Deep Beige for a more matte look.

Taking care of your skin.

Normal spread2 copy

Want to delay aging and prevent problematic skin? Follow these easy steps:

• Protect your skin from the sun by using SPF or seeking the shade
• Cleanse and moisturize skin daily. As well as drinking plenty of water.
• Eat a healthy diet
• Do not smoke
• Try to limit your stress

How to determine your skin type?
Normal/Combination: Normal will not show traces of oil and will be least problematic. Combination will have areas of both dry and oily.
Dry/Dehydrated: Skin will feel dry, flaky and tight.
Oily/Overactive: Can look shiny, feel greasy, has large pores and acne/breakouts.

How often should you exfoliate?
Exfoliating removes dead skin cells and dirt leaving your skin soft and glowing! How many times a week you should exfoliate depends on the scrub. Our Red Seaweed Gentle Exfoliator is so gentle and soft you can use it every day as opposed to a more coarse scrub. The general rule is 2-3 times a week but skip it if your skin is feeling dry or irritated.

Should I include a mask in my skin care regimen?
Studies have shown that masks are worthwhile. Masks can balance out oily skin as well as making skin feel and look better. I would recommend using weekly to balance the skin. Both of our masks can be used on any skin type.

Sea Clay Purifying Mud Mask: A fresh blend of sea minerals and clays specifically formulated for its purifying, astringent and clarifying effect. This mineral-rich clay mask cleanses and purifies the skin by absorbing surface impurities and excess sebum. Seaweed helps to smooth an soothe, while sea kelp and aloe vera provide humectants and anti-irritants to moisturize and heal skin
Seaweed Hydrating Mask: An active formula of blue green algae, amino acids and plant extracts precisely blended to provide just the amount of hydration and resiliency needed for all skin types. Spirulina and sea fennel have been added to maximize the hydrating benefits. Vitamin E and aloe vera help to soothe and heal minor irritations, making this the ideal treatment to calm the effects of excessive sun exposure.

Cool vs. Warm Skin Tones

I think most people should know if they have warm or cool undertones. Knowing this is important in choosing cosmetics, clothing and hair color. The quickest way for someone to determine this is to ask themselves the following question;

What color looks best on me, pink or peach?

Pink: Cool undertones
Peach: Warm undertones

Done!
