Take 10 Pounds Off Your Face

IMG_9347

Bronzer has been part of my makeup routine for years to add a touch of sun to my yellow/olive skin. When I’m not tan, I look sickly and jondis! This year, I have worked on many projects with the top makeup artists in Dallas. I’m always curious about the new products and techniques they are using on me and this contour palette by Aesthetica Cosmetics was a must get and must share with you sistas.

If you are like me and carry weight in your face, this contour palette of 6 shades will literally take 10 lbs off. Plus, I have a very high forehead and there are tricks for taking me from a five-head back to having a normal looking forehead. I cannot believe I have just learned how to properly contour! Better late than never. The palette comes with 5 matte shades and 1 luminous highlighter which are refillable, guide booklet and great plastic graphic as a reference. Remember, it’s important to use the right brushes for contouring to get the perfect look.

BE FAB FRIDAY: A Lil Beauty, Style and Inspiration

Hey Sistas!

Here’s a few quick SOS tips to keep you looking + feeling fabulous….

{BEAUTY}

Keep your summer tan glowing into Fall with my fave new drugstore bronzer by Physicians Formula. Many bronzers look orangey or have too much sparkle which settles into wrinkles and can make your skin look older, ruddy and dirty. YIKES! This bronzer is a combo of a powder and cream which actually melts into the skin giving you a beautiful airbrushed glow!  Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting Airbrushing Bronzing Veil Deluxe Edition

{STYLE}

As you begin pulling out your brown boots for Fall, remember to throw on a leopard belt for extra fabulous-ness. I got this calf hair skinny belt at Target, YEP… Target! I paired it with cognac colored clogs.

 The brilliant thing about a leopard belt is it goes with EVERY shade of brown. No more second guessing what belt to match!

{INSPIRATION}

I want to say thank you for receiving- with love- the recent blog about forgiving yourself. Many of you have sent me private messages sharing your journey with me. This is the beauty of the connection we have in SOS. It is a virtual circle of strong hands linked together in non-judgement and support. May we all continue to grow and make the best choices for ourselves and our futures.

Have a wonderful weekend and make sure to take some time for YOU!

I HAD IT ALL WRONG! Part 3 of Tara’s 5 Minute Face: Powder & Bronzer

Thank God for Tara Dowburd-Luftman of Makeup Therapy!  In Part 3 of her 5 Minute Face, TDL shows us how to apply the RIGHT TYPE OF POWDER & BRONZER.   I found out I’ve been doing it all wrong for about 15 years now!   

Tara recommends translucent powder without color to set and get rid of shine.  I’ve been using a “dual finish” powder and always looked like a grease-pit by the middle of the day.  PLUS, she recommends using a  bronzer without shimmer in it.   Yep, I had that wrong too!

Her top pick for translucent powder is by LAURA MERCIER,
