Did you know that you really should change your make-up with the seasons? It really does reflect on your appearance. Here’s a quick guide on doing your make-up all year round.

For eye shadow, bright, bold colours are IN. There are great pinks, deep purples and awesome blues, not to mention oranges, greens etc. to check out as well.  Play up your eyes with these new shades.

Spring
You aren’t still wearing the same old makeup colours that you wore last winter, are you? Spring is coming, and there are some great new colours.

There are great new mascaras that make eyelashes longer and thicker.   The look of false lashes can be obtained, creating that so popular look.   One end fortifies and lengthens the lashes, and the other end coats the lashes with lush colour.   And when they say that it makes your lashes longer… it definitely works that way for me.

I challenge you to test out DivaGlam’s foundations. They are definitely worth sharing.

To blush for this season, try a mixture of pink and peach for lighter complexions, peach and bronze for medium skin tones, and bronzer with golden tones for darker skin tones.   Two colours warm up complexions perfectly.  Try mixing the shades that you have and see how it works for you.

Summer
Full face make-up is not really necessary anymore (no matter what your age).  And in the summer, who wants full make-up on their face?   Use a tinted moisturizer rather than a regular foundation.  Also, foundation applied to your t-zone is acceptable and adding a sheer powder over the entire face after will do very nicely.  It will even out your skin tone and is so much lighter.

As far as fragrance goes, keep your summer fragrance light and fresh. A cologne or toilet water spray with some of the new aromatherapy scents is perfect. You can always go back to your regular or a heavier perfume at first frost. Overall, just think light, airy, sunny, and you can’t go wrong with less summer makeup.

Remember, “LESS IS MORE”, especially as you get older.  Take what you see in magazines and on tv and make it YOUR own. Those LOOKS are only guidelines for you to use.  If you remember this, always be a FASHION DIVA!!!

I love this advice or instruction and wanted to share it with my readers. I always stress the importance of skincare. My grandmother first told me a little secret that her mother taught her. She said that this was the secret to looking young later in life It involves a bit of process that, if practised, I have seen first hand it works. First, always cleanse your skin morning and night, especially at night. It does not matter if you have makeup on or not. Just make it a habit, and the Second is always moisturizer twice daily. The other advice she gave me that was of great importance was never to go to bed with your makeup on. She said this will save you years off the face.
I was told that going to bed with makeup on can age the skin by ten years!!!!!! WOW, just think ten years can be taken off your face by following simple steps 1. cleanse morning and night. 2. moisturize morning and night.
Today we have so many products to choose from, so just do your homework and find what works for YOU. I have listed a few products that I personally use and like very much; if you like, give them a try. My grandmother used Ponds cold cream and vaseline and nothing else. Now, this worked for her. At the age of 104, she had barely any wrinkles at all. Okay until next time
Remember, YOU only get ONE face, so treat it well.

B’hue-tifully you

Did you know that changing your make-up with the seasons is an excellent idea? Here’squick guide on how to do your make-up all year round.

Let me ask you a question, “are you still wearing the same make-up colours that you wore this Fall? Like the colours change season to season, so can your make-up, especially our foundation. We tend to get darker in summer and lighter in the Winter. So having a make-up wardrobe is something to think about. This doesn’t mean that you have to spend lots of money on this, but it is an excellent goal to have.

Having a neutral pallet is a must; I also recommend softer colours for Spring and deeper colours into Summer and Fall. When choosing colours seasonally, just go with the colours of nature, and that should make it easier. There are great pinks, deep purples and incredible blues, not to mention oranges, greens etc., to check out as well. Play up your eyes with these shades.

There are great new mascaras that make eyelashes longer and thicker. So the look of false lashes can be obtained, creating that open eye look. But, like me, I often find it frustrating to put false lashes on. I recommend trying a duel mascara with a primer and then the colour. The primer adds length and thickness, and then the colour enhances the lashes; one end fortifies and lengthens the lashes and the other end coats the lashes with lush colour. The second recommendation to try is the magnetic liner and strips, they work well, and you can take them off at night. . These definitely works that way for me.

I invite you to try DivaGlam Cosmetics foundations. They have mineral pressed and loose powder, jojoba liquid foundation, and HD foundations that give you that airbrushed finish. Specializing in colours for ethnic women. And the best part, it offers flawless buildable coverage.

To blush for this season, try a mixture of pink and peach for lighter complexions, peach and bronze for medium skin tones, and bronzer with golden, blue and red undertones for darker skin tones. Try mixing the shades you have and see how it works for you.

Full face make-up is unnecessary anymore (no matter your age). And in the summer, who wants full make-up on their face? So instead, use a tinted moisturizer rather than a regular foundation. Also, foundation applied to your t-zone is acceptable and adding a sheer powder over the entire face will do very nicely. This will help even out your skin tone and set your foundation.

As far as fragrance goes, keep your summer fragrance light and fresh. A cologne or toilet water spray with some new aromatherapy scents is perfect. Of course, you can always go back to your regular or a heavier perfume in Winter. Overall, just think light, airy, sunny, and you can’t go wrong with less make-up in the summer.

Remember, “less is more”, especially as you get older. So take what you see in magazines and on tv or youtube and make it your own. Those looks are only guidelines for you to use. If you remember this, then you will always be a make-up DIVA.

(Eye Cream and Concealer: Wear them Together)

Okay, so I just want to point out some of the benefits of eye cream and concealer. Eye cream is an essential part of your anti-ageing skin-care regimen. And under-eye concealer is what I like to refer to as a gift from the makeup gurus.

Since its inception, it has served and solved many a late-night, or lack of water, allergy, puffy eye disaster. So let us start with the basics:  1st let’s “prime the eye correctly” to prevent concealer cracking. 2nd “know your skin type” if you tend to be oily, don’t use a thick oily or very creamy eye cream. For those with dry skin, use a hydrating eye cream, so your makeup doesn’t crack. 3rd “Always let your under-eye cream set 90 seconds before putting concealer on.” Using concealer as the last step of makeup will give your eye cream enough time to absorb.

Don’t be afraid to try different brands until you find the one that is right for you. Both eye cream and concealer do not have to come from the same brand. What may work from one company in eye cream may not work for you in a concealer. Remember YOU are the ARTIST, and it is your canvas(face) so do what is right for you!

Here’s to a b’HUE-tiful YOU,
