Beauty Tip Of The Week

For healthy clean skin, I recommend you do the following:

1) Cleanse your skin two times per day with a cleanser thats appropriate for your skin type
2) Gently exfoliate your skin at least twice per week. (I do not suggest exfoliating more than twice per week. You may strip your skin of its natural moisture)
3) Apply a moisturizer daily with sunscreen of at least SPF 15

In the evening (second cleanse), do not exfoliate if you exfoliated during the day (remember only two times per week). Also, apply a moisturizer without a sunscreen. Sunscreen only needs to be worn during the day.

Total Beauty - Max Factor

Max Factor - Vivid Impact LipColor (#4 - Pin Up Pink)

After years of wearing only lipgloss, I decided that 2009 I would try wearing more lipstick. When I received the Max Factor Vivid Impact Lip Color, I thought, "now is my chance." I wasn't too crazy about the color, but I made it work. Without a lip balm, the lipstick did not add much moisture at all to my lips. I had to add a lip balm in order for the product to feel good on my lips. The lipstick was average, but I've had better.

Total Beauty - Max Factor

Max Factor - 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper

When I received this mascara in the mail, I thought, "Wow, another mascara. Let's see how different this one is going to be." I loved the length and especially the fullness of my lashes after application. I didn't really care for the fat brush. It felt really akward in my hand. All in all, this is a nice mascara. It does what it says it's going to do. To read more of this review and other beauty reviews, go to

Beauty Tip Of The Week

If you find that you have really dry skin or you are applying makeup to someone with dry skin, you definitely want to moisturize.

TIP: To give your skin the extra glow that it desires, use products that will add the moisture that it needs. For example, cream foundations, very little powder, misting moisture sprays (Illusions finishing spray), and cream blush.
