Seductive Eyes

How does one create that perfect “come hither” eye? Simple! Start with a light shade (champagne or pink work well) all over the lid up to the crease of the eye lid. Feel free to really layer the light shade so that it stays put throughout your evening out. Next choose a darker shade (charcoal or mushroom give definition without being too dramatic) and line the outer half of the upper lash line and the outer half of the eye lid crease. Next you blend, blend, blend. I like to think of it like a windshield washer going back and forth.  Blend back and forth on the lash line and the crease, Make sure to keep the darker shade away from the actual lid where you placed the light shade. If you want to add a little more drama you can lightly line the bottom lash line and blend with a brush. To finish off your date night eye apply several layers of mascara and you are ready to wow the town.

Ombre, the latest trend in color!

So there is this new trend that I am seeing everywhere and it is Ombre. Whether it is hair, clothes or makeup it is all over the fashion world right now. Ombre is most simply put, a graduation is color. One of the post popular forms of Ombre is creating a graduated lip color. There are a couple ways to achieve this. The first is to fill in your lips with a lip liner. The color is up to you as long as it is a darker, deeper shade. After filling in your lips you pat translucent finishing powder onto the middle of the lip. Doing this creates that graduated look from a light shade to a deep shade on the outer parts of the lip. Happy Ombre-ing!

Product Information from Vicki

We take training very seriously here at Skin by Marywynn.  We want to be able to provide you with the latest information on skin care products and ingredients. I always leave a training session feeling even more excited about the industry we are in and the products we have access too.  Most recently we met with our trainer for the Skin by Marywynn product line.  Although I have worked with these products for two and half years now I was reminded once again of how amazing they are!  Here a couple of key factors about each of our serums:

Stress Recovery Complex- This serum helps combat the effects of stress on the skin, as we have discussed before, stress increases the cortisol levels in the skin which can lead to cellular death.  I don’t know about you but I need all of the healthy cells I can get!  This calming serum helps to relieve redness, irritation, sensitivity and tension wrinkles.  WOW, need I say more?

Advanced Firming Serum-This product contains the Matrixyl Peptide which is as effective as 5% Vitamin C  or .07% Retinol.  This complex helps to wake up the Collagen and Elastin which leads to firmer skin. This is especially helpful for slowing down the lines and wrinkles and is effective around the eyes as well.

Activating Liposome Complex- This serum is wonderful for skin with multiple problems.  This product contains Beta Glucans which work on the surface of the skin to help with immune response. Basically they challenge the skin to correct itself.  Wonderful for addressing dehydration, acne, as well as fine lines and wrinkles.

If you have not tried one of these products, ask about them on your next visit.  Chances are you have had at least two or more of them on your skin at some point during a facial!

Looking for Kissable Lips?

To make sure that your lips are hydrated start with the Skin by Marywynn Lip Remodeling Treatment. This will boost collagen production and plump as well as break down any dry skin so that your lips are ready for color. Next line your lips with the brightening side of the Susan Posnick Concealing Stick. Line right outside of the lip line and blend out. This will define your lips nicely as well as create a barrier so that your color doesn’t travel. Lastly is applying the perfect shade of pink or red for you. My personal favorite of ours is the Armour Lip Gloss in Shattered.
