Mascara Q&A

Do you ever recommend using a primer before applying mascara? Why didn’t you include one in your cosmetic lines?

Most have synthetic fibers that may be harmful to the delicate eye; however I would recommend our Clear Mascara, which coats the lashes and makes them appear fuller.

What are the major benefits with going with an all-natural mascara?

You are avoiding harsh chemicals found in mass-market mascaras. Ours helps promote healthy lash growth from vitamins and herbal extracts instead of mascara with synthetic fibers that just mimic.

Peonies are my favorite flower and I got inspired by the beauty of nature to decorate my home. 

Here are some tips for making your lovelies last their longest:

  • Put in lukewarm water as soon as they are cut (slanted 45-degree angle cut).
  • Use warm water (better absorbed versus cold).
  • Add homemade flower preservative:  Mix 1 teaspoon of sugar, 2 teaspoons of lemon or lime juice and a quart of lukewarm water.

Makeup Q&A

What are the benefits of buying a 2-way foundation (or dual powder foundation) and what type of skin is best suited rather than a foundation and powder separately?

Our dual powder foundations are best suited for people with normal to oily skin because it is a powder formula vs. a liquid designed to absorb excess oil.  The benefits are that you get two products in one; a foundation to provide an even skin tone and base and a powder to control shine.   I would especially recommend for the woman on the go as it is in solid form vs. other mineral based powders that are loose and can’t get messy.

Powder Foundation tools:  When to use a brush, sponge, and fingers and why to achieve flawless skin.

Our dual powder foundations come with a sponge to achieve two looks; use wet for maximum coverage or dry for a soft velvety finish.  Our Powder Brush is also recommended for use throughout the day to prevent powder from appearing too cakey.  Make sure to wash the sponge at least once a wekk to prevent any type of skin breakouts.  I suggest using a cleanser to wash.  I wouldn’t recommend using your finger with a powder foundation, as it would not apply correctly.  I would only use fingers with a cream/liquid formula.

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!
