Halloween Makeup Cheetah Chic Look

CREATE A CAT SHAPE FACE 

Using a La Bella Donna Mineral Makeup Brush apply a light foundation shade like La Bella Donna Loose Mineral Powder in Crema to the center of your forehead, around your eyes, your nose, mouth, and chin and blend out towards the sides off your face. Using the same brush, apply a darker foundation shade like LBD Loose Mineral Powder in Cafe around the outer forehead and cheek area outlining your face. Create a more “cat-like” angular facial shape by pulling an even darker shade like LBD Loose Mineral Powder in Mahogany down towards your mouth under your cheek bones.  Halloween Makeup - Le Reve Spa

CREATE A SMOKEY EYE

Use a La Bella Donna Oval Fluff Brush to apply a dark brown shadow to your entire eyelid from the crease to the lash line. We used the brown in the La Bella Donna Mineral Eyeshadow Compact in Sedona Sunset. Blend this color up from the outside eye crease toward the brow. Add a bit sultry shimmer with Taupe color in this same compact to the crease and blend up towards age outside of the brow line using the La Bella Donna Eyeshadow Eyeshadow Brush. Apply La Bella Donna Eye Pencil in black along the lash line. Create more of a “cat eye” appearance with a winged line from the outside eye area toward the side of the face and by pulling the liner down from the inside corner of the eye about a quarter of an inch. Apply La Bella Donna Mascara in Black.

CREATE CHEETAH SPOTS

Using the LBD Oval Fluff Brush apply spots ranging in thumb width to eraser tip size across the forehead, along the side of the face, and down the neck and decollate using La Bella Donna Eyeshadow in Chocolate. Outline 3/4 of each spot created with LBD Eye Pencil in black. Now the touch of Glam; add a smaller spot of a shimmery color like La Bella Donna Illuminator in Luminere to each spot using the LBD Eyeshadow Brush.

CHEETAH NOSE & MOUTH

Define the bottom portion of the nose and create a vertical line from the there to the mouth with LBD Eye Pencil in black. Use the La Bella Donna Eyeliner Brush to apply the liner to the entire area. Finalize that Cheetah-chic look with a sexy red lip color like La Bella Donna lip Pencil in Scarlet.  
“Makeup is a fun and free way to express yourself, you can learn so many fun new techniques. Have fun with it and just enjoy yourself. The makeup line that we carry here at the spa is made purely of minerals, it leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh and application I do not feel like I’m wearing a full face of makeup. I love these products and would highly recommend  them.
We hope you have a fun and safe Halloween!”_ xoxo, Linda Spa Coordinator

Halloween Health Reminder to Beware of Face Paint Toxins

Halloween Health Reminder

Check out this Halloween Health Reminder to beware of the Toxins that may lurk in your face paint by Chemist and skincare specialist Bridgette at Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique in Santa Barbara California Halloween Health Reminder - Le Reve SpaHalloween Health Reminder that the majority of what you put on your or your child’s skin gets broken down and absorbed. So for all you parents out there who thought that sugar consumption was your biggest concern for your little-ones, think again.  One of the scariest things about Halloween aside from some of the spooky costumes and haunted houses are the horrible toxins present in the over the counter halloween costume makeup.   Halloween Health Reminder - Le Reve SpaThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states plainly that no safe blood lead level in children has been identified, and that exposure to lead can jeopardize nearly every system in the body. Even low levels of lead in blood have been shown to affect IQ, ability to pay attention, and academic achievement. And effects of lead exposure cannot be corrected.   Even with all of these health disclaimers each year halloween face paint containing harmful levels of toxins are available for purchase. In 2009 the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics issued a report stating that 10 out of the 10 popular children’s face paints contained lead in addition to other harmful chemicals such as chromium, cobalt, nickel and other toxic chemicals deemed hazardous by the FDA and even banned in other countries! 
Before you cancel this years Halloween festivities or limit costume choices to a simple bed sheet ghost please read the following tips on how to keep things healthy from toxins this year. 

Halloween Heath Reminders:

  • Consider natural alternatives to makeup – Mix natural food coloring with corn syrup for fake blood, or cornstarch, flour and vegetable shortening for a spooky ghost or skeleton face. 
  • Use a primer – before anything touches your skin or your childs skin. La Bella Donna Mineral Makeup is a micro ground mineral makeup that works as a great primer! It creates the perfect hydrophobic barrier between any halloween make-up and skin helping to prevent toxins from absorbing into your pores and then your bloodstream.
  • Choose makeup carefully – So it is true that ten out ten products tested by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics contained by  lead, but fortunately for us there are more than just those 10 choices available. La Bella Donna Mineral Makeup has a great spectrum of colors avail for both everyday wear and halloween makeup. However if you are looking for more of the paint-style halloween makeup we recommend Elegant Minerals and Natural Earth Paint. Read ingredients carefully. Choose mineral based makeup over the makeup containing heavy metals. Double check with the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep cosmetics database to see if your skincare passes the health standard you are looking for. 
  • Perform a patch test – Products tested contained highly allergenic ingredients such as chromium can be hazardous so before applying to your skin this halloween conduct a patch test by placing a small amount of the under your arm or at the base of your neck to test for a reaction. 
  • Remove all makeup as soon as possible – Do not sleep in face paint. Remove all makeup as soon as possible 

We at Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique want you to have a safe and healthy Halloween and hope these tips help. 

xoxo, Bridgette
