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.
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 Pencilin 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 Pencilin 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.
Formulated with naturally-derived mineral based pigments these kohl eye pencils are soft and blend easily. If you haven’t use an Eye Pencil, now’s the time to try one.
Super soft around the eye area
Contains no inflammatory properties, ideal for lining the inside rim of the eye
Staying power for all day and into the evening
SMOKY QUARTZ works well with La Bella Donna Compact Colour Folio “Sedona Sunset”.
VIOLET CHAROITE works well with both La Bella Donna Compact Colour Folios “Despina” and “Blackberry”.
HOW TO APPLY:
Always apply your Eye Pencil after you apply your Mineral Eyeshadow and Mineral Mascara. You may wish to hold the tip of the pencil between the thumb and forefinger to soften the tip, then apply close to the top and bottom lash line with a very light hand.
When it comes to your beautiful skin remember its better to ditch the expired cosmetics.
Ditch Expired Makeup
More than two-thirds of women only replace make-up and skincare products when they run out.
LONDON – The average British woman’s cosmetic bag is out of date by a worrying four years, according to a study on Wednesday
Women are using cosmetics well past the use-by date, unaware that some products could be magnets for germswhich could damage their health and looks, said Sara Stern, Director of Cosmetics at retail chain Debenhams.
“British women are famously loyal to make-up brands and products, however, their reluctance to throw away old products is a risky business,” Stern said in a statement.
“We wouldn’t hesitate to chuck out moldy or bacteria-ridden food and the same standards should apply to the lotions and potions and that we put on our skin. Beauty is timeless but unfortunately, products are not.”
Favorite beauty essentials such as foundation, concealer, blusher, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick and perfume all include a “period after opening” indicator, denoted by an open pot with the number of months of safe use written inside. Next time you visit your favorite stores’ site to buy new makeup, as well as checking sites like Raise to see if there are any discounts, see if you can find it either on the images or in the description of the products you’re buying.
Debenhams asked 1,000 women aged 18 to 70 about the contents of their cosmetic bags and their understanding of the health considerations.
Despite European Union guidelines meaning brands have to state product shelf lives, 89 percent of respondents said they were unaware that such information exists, did not understand what the symbol meant or were unable to read the often tiny writing.
Make up, perfume and skincare products used after the expiration date carry a risk of irritation and infection, Debenhams said. This is due to air and bacteria infiltrating the products. Multiuse products carry an even higher risk as they can spread germs from eyes to skin to lips.
To add to the shock factor, 60 percent of respondents admitted they shared make-up with friends and family, multiplying the chances of infection.More than two thirds of women (68 percent) said they only replace make-up and skincare when they run out, however long that might take.
Nearly three-quarters of those surveyed (72 percent) never wash their make-up sponges or brushes, even though they should do so at least once a week and 81 percent of British women also regularly (at least once a week) go to sleep without removing make-up. Although this may seem time consuming, keeping the brushes and sponges which touch your face on a regular clean is a must for healthy skin. Our Natural Brush Cleaner by Eminence Organic Skin Care is a great fix for those with not too much time to wash brushes in the morning. Simply spray and go!
Bevis Man of the British Skin Foundation said it was not always obvious when make-up had passed its prime, so it may not occur to people to replace their products.
“It is best to err on the side of caution and if a product looks or smells strange, it is worth throwing it away.”
Le Reve, Cosmetologist Linda is available to answer questions, give lessons, and apply your make up for a night out or special event. Classes are going on every week during February. Call the Le Reve today and sign up. 805-564-2977
