What Is Beauty To You?

We recently had a Spring giveaway where readers had to respond to the question, 'What is beauty to you'? Our winner was the lovely Ms. Devin Cofield from Holly Springs, NC.  This is what Devin had to say:" Beauty to me ... is what you make it!  It's what's inside and what you bring to the forefront!  Beauty isn't something that's just superficial, it's deeper than you think.  Beauty is how you carry yourselves.... how you walk... how you you treat others around you!

Thanks Devin for responding.  We hope you enjoy your Spring product giveaway!!

Beauty Tip

When applying concealer, we are always told to find a shade that is a shade lighter than our skin tone or to find a shade that matches our skin tone exactly.  I am not saying that this is bad advice, because it's not, it's just not the ONLY advice that I would give if you are trying to cover blemishes, hyperpigmentation, etc.

It is always wise to deal with the color of the imperfection first and then deal with matching the skin tone.
Ex:  If you have dark circles under the eyes (broken capillaries), the underlying color under that skin is Blue (more visible on lighter skin).  You want to cover the 'Blue' with its opposite color on the color wheel, 'Orange'.  Find a concealor with enough orange in it to cover your under eye situation and then cover that with a concealor that matches your skin tone.

* Check out Illusions Cosmetics foundation sticks.  May be used as foundation and concealer.

Beauty Tip

Now that Spring is officially here, you may have noticed some changes in your skin - a little dry skin & flakiness left over from the winter and/or a little oiliness/extra shine due to the warmer weather.  Whatever the case may be, now is the time to detox your bodies and skin for a healthier YOU!!!

Drink more water!!  I recommend 6 glasses a day.  No more than 8 is necessary.
