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.
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.
UVA rayspenetrate deep into the dermis (the skin’s thickest layer) and can lead to premature aging and wrinkling of the skin, as well as immune suppression when left unprotected. Even when you’re gardening it’s important to seek shelter in somewhere like a utility shed, as it’s surprising just how little exposure you need in order to cause damage.
UVB rayswill usually burn the superficial layers (the epidermis) of your skin.
It only takes 15 minutes to begin to see the damaging effects of this ultraviolet light.
LIQUID SUN PROTECTION
Liquid Sun Protection comes in two different forms; Sunblock and Sunscreen. Here at Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique you will find sun protection in every form.
Sunblock is also referred to as a physical block or mineral defense sun protection system. This is a recommended type of sun protection for anyone who is outdoors for extended periods of time. With sunblock minerals such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide create a barrier against both the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. Sunblock is typically thicker and because the minerals used in sunblock are usually white in color a slight cant may remain visible when applied to the skin. If you are concerned with looking pale because of sunblock, rest assured that these products which do leave a slightly visible mineral appearance are subtle. Additionally, it is important to note that this form of liquid sun protection cannot be beat by the chemical sunscreen method. If you are only interested in a sunblock or mineral defense sun protection product then La Bella Donna Translucent Sun Protection, Eminence Tomato Day Cream, or the Sea & Summit Sun Stickis for you!
If you are admit that sunblock is not for you, all then you have two remaining options: Liquid Sunscreen or a Combination of sunblock and sunscreen together.
Sunscreen is also referred to as chemical sun protection. This form of liquid sun protection is more lightweight and virtually transparent. With sunscreen chemicals such as oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate are included in the skincare product to screen the suns harmful UVA and UVB rays. These chemical additives absorb and disperse UVB rays, preventing them from penetrating skin. Sunscreen can and should be used on a daily basis for regular activity like your work commute. If you are interested in this type of sun protection then Eminence Tropical Vanilla Day Cream, Tropical Vanilla Body Sunscreen and Jurlique Sun Specialistare for you!

ADDITIONAL METHODS OF SUN PROTECTION
There are also a few things aside from our main defense; wearing sunblock and/or sunscreen that we can do to help lower our chances of UV skin damage.The first defense; avoid prolong exposure to the sun. This is the easiest and most sure-proof way to protect your skin. However, for many of us, the idea of limiting your time outside when the sun is shining is simply not an option. If this last statement is true for you remember these other defenses. The second defense; wear hats. Sporting a sexy summer hat with a wide brim does more than just make you look super chic, it protects your face , neck, and decolletté from direct sun light. Make sun protection a fashion statement! Our third defense; long sleeve shirt and pants.
Simply combine all of these defenses with your sunscreen and/or sun block and become the poster-child for great healthy skin!
Fake it, Don’t Bake it!
When it comes to your beautiful skin don’t damage it trying for that summer glow. Wear your sunblock and get your real tan at Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique, to keep skin healthy and smooth.

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.
For those not graced with the best brows, or no brows La Bella Donna has created a Complete Brow Kit that will save you hours. The Kit comes in shades of Brunette, Blonde and Auburn. Within each Kit you have two shades of colour, most of you will use both, a pomade/wax, this is like a sealing wax, to keep the brow in place and a highlight cream to lift the brow bone and brighten the eye.
The first thing I did was went over the tattoo with the concealer completely which caused the light coverage, and then I went back over it with the Loose Mineral Foundation completely which caused the complete disappearance of my tattoo. After this I lightly dusted the area with the Loose Foundation and set it with Jurlique Rose Balancing Mist so that it wouldn’t transfer onto my clothes or rub off onto anything else.
I have had this on for five hours now and my tattoo is still invisible.
Below is a before and after picture – Unedited.
This technique is wonderful if you wanted to cover up your tattoos for special events, your wedding, or a job.
So if you ladies are going to an event and have a blemish, don’t use cover up. Try this technique you may just love it and never turn back!
We look forward to seeing you!
