Marc Jacobs Beauty

13 Aug

Marc Jacobs has created a beauty line and the products are pretty amazing…
Great reviews coming from the Remedy Concealer Pen which is made with a blend of Theine, coconut water, and vitamin extracts that hydrate, nourish, correct, and conceal beautifully! You feel a cooling sensation when applying the concealer, which helps to de-puff swollen eyes and the concealer covers dark circles to give you a fresh eyed look.marc jacobs concealer

The eye palettes are also all the rage, which offer long-lasting true pigmented color and are super pretty:

And not to be forgotten, the Marc Jacobs Magic Marc’er Pen which has a calligraphy pen tip for precise lines and has awesome staying power.  The waterproof formula was developed in Japan to be the shiniest, blackest black liner in existence:

Rip Tide by LaLa Lacquers

decided to go for an “under the sea” kind of color today… I used my own glitter top coat that I made called Rip Tide (found on my Etsy shop).

Ooh La La (Lacquers!)

13 Jul

Next Friday I have my first show as a vendor…I am selling some of my hand made nail lacquer that I make and sell online.  (The name of the line is LaLa Lacquers and is found on http://etsy.com/shop/LaLaLacquers  ) . I managed to get in the “lab” this week and produce a good amount of polishes to bring along.  Here are some (not so great) photos of a few of the color samples, all of which will be made available for sale on Etsy:

DIY: coconut and flower hair oil treatment and a pineapple foot rub

16 Jun

               

Coconut oil and flower hair oil treatment:

(This will need to be prepared the night before you plan to use it)

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh flower petals
  • 2 tablespoons rose water

Directions:

  1. Bring the 1/2 cup of coconut oil to a boil in a small pan
  2. Add the rose water
  3. Add the fresh flower petals of your choice
  4. Let return to a boil for three minutes
  5. Let the flowers steep in the oil overnight
  6. In the morning, strain the oil through a coffee filter or cheesecloth into an airtight container
  7. When ready to oil your hair, rub a few tablespoons in your hair and wrap tight in a towel
  8. Let sit for about 20 minutes, then shampoo and rinse as normal

Pineapple Foot Rub

This one is easy as pie:

  • Take 1 cup of fresh pineapple and puree in a food processor
  • Take the pineapple mixture and spread and rub all over feet including your heels and around your nails (you may feel a tingle)
  • After 10 minutes rinse off with warm water and pat dry
