Finding Your Correct Foundation Color:
When looking for a new makeup color I always recommend matching the neck and décolletage.
A lot of times our skin color varies between our face and the rest of our body. This is because our face receives the most sun (SPF!). So if you match your face and don’t check to make sure the color matches everything else it is very easy to end up with the dreaded “line” along the jawline.
When applying makeup, make sure to always blend your makeup down your neck as well. This will also help to ensure nice even coverage.

When applying blush it is very easy to end up with a line of color across your cheek bone. It may look nice from the front but from the side there is a very distinct line of makeup.
To avoid this I recommend only applying blush on the apple of the cheek and then blending with your fingers up and along the cheek bone. This way you still get the color and definition without the heaviness that using a blush brush would cause.
If you would like some help with application or color selection of blush, I would love to help.

I have made a point lately of telling my clients to just stay out of the beauty aisles. Whether it’s a grocery store, box store or big name department store, just stay away! My training as a professional esthetician allows me to advise you on what is best for your skin type as well as any conditions that you are experiencing. Trust me I will save you SOOOOO much money. I too used to be an impulse buyer, which is what the beauty industry is banking on. They spend millions of dollars every year on catchy phrases, lovely packaging and promises of the ever so sought after “fountain of youth” serum, cream or potion.
Go to your bathroom and count how many bottles, jars, etc. that you have purchased either online or in the stores that you tried once and never used again. Add up how much you have spent on wasted products that did nothing for you either because you did not use them or they gave you some strange reaction. I would bet you will find at least a hundred dollars’ worth of products sitting on your shelves without including makeup. How many of us have purchased make up, only to realize that they were the wrong color for us once we left the store.
If you are feeling like you need a little “something” for your skin just give me a call. I am happy to recommend a little something something for you to try. As for Make up, we will personally color match you and apply whatever you would like to try. We even recommend wearing it for the day before you commit. No pressure here, we just want you and your skin to be happy!
