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

Sun Protection Santa Barbara

sun protection santa barbara le reve spaSun Protection

sun-protection-le-reve-spaThe SUN is shinning and the SUMER SEASON is upon us Santa Barbara. Remember that using sun protection is a MUST!
Make sure that you are taking the time to protect your beautiful skin from the suns damaging rays with great UVA/UVB sun protection like the Eminence Tropical Vanilla Day Cream or Tropical Vanilla Body Sunscreen, Eminence Tomato Day Cream SPF16, Jurlique Sun Specialist, La Bella Donna Translucent Sun Protection or Sea & Summit Sun Stick.  

ULTRAVIOLET RAYS

UVA rays penetrate 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. UVA-UVB Rays explained by Le Reve Spa

UVB rays will 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.

UV Light Spectrum - Le Reve Spa


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
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 Stick is 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
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 Specialist are 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!

Loose Mineral Makeup

Anyone who knows Le Reve’s dark princess and cosmetologist, Linda also knows that she is absolutely no stranger to ink.
After being told that our wonderful mineral makeup at Le Reve can cover anything, it went without saying that she had to put it to the test.
Check out her post on the fantastic coverage offered by Le Reve Spa’s La Bella Donna Loose Mineral Makeup. 

La Bella Donna Loose Mineral Makeup Foundation

Don’t cover a blemish conceal them, for example today I covered up one of my tattoos with our La Bella Donna Anti-aging Mineral Mystique – Hydrating Concealer (#2) and our Loose Mineral Foundation (Crema.)
Le Reve Loose Mineral Makeup CoverageThe 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!
