APPLY YOUR EYELINER LIKE A PRO WITH THESE THREE TIPS

Remember the first time you started using make-up? Did your eyes take on the appearance of a raccoon or your cheeks look like an abstract painting gone bad? Thinking back to my 13-year old self, I cringe at my somewhat horrifying make-up journey. I don’t know about you, but I find it hard to look at those utterly embarrassing throwback pictures! My biggest mistake back then? A heavy dose of eyeliner. Thankfully I’ve learned a thing or two about natural beauty – and can appreciate the art of subtle eyeliner. Keep reading to make sure your flicks are on fleek!

  1. Buy the right products

Do your research! What brand of eyeliner will last the entire day and go on effortlessly? My personal favorite is Jane Iredale’s Black eye pencil – simple and sleek with one smooth application.

  1. Sit down for the perfect angle

Find a comfortable chair, take a seat and then place a mirror on your lap. While looking slightly down at the mirror, carefully apply your eyeliner in the groove between your lashes and lash line. You won’t believe how easy it is and how amazing it looks!

  1. Keep it light on your lower lashes

Unless you’re the lead singer in a heavy metal band, avoid applying a lower lash line that is too thick. For more natural and soft definition, apply a short stroke of color under the outer corner of your lower lashes. Finish it off with a smudging brush, blending the liner in toward the center.

Lastly, it’s important to keep the skin around your eye looking smooth. To eliminate those highly annoying fine lines, use Enza Essential’s Eyebright Intensive Eye Crème.

REVEAL YOUR ROMANTIC SIDE THIS VALENTINE’S DAY

Chalk it up to another Hallmark holiday to give us yet another excuse to dress and look our very best. Is there a better time to break out that cute outfit than Valentine’s Day? I don’t think so! Whether you’re going out on a romantic date with your sweetheart or hitting the town with your besties, here are five tips to knock your look out of the ballpark.

12669613_10208699923001398_1040217316950256616_n

Proper exfoliating is the key for smooth, soft, touchable skin. I use a gentle scrub like Enza Essential’s Shea Butter Body Polish – it makes me feel like I just stepped out of an extravagant spa. Your special guy will be singing his own version of “Reach out and touch, somebody’s hand.”

12742669_10208699933881670_9138810139116101741_n

Moisturize for even softer skin. Immediately after showering, apply a heavy moisturizer to reenergize your dry and thirsty skin. I like my Enza Essential’s Shea Body Butter which keeps my skin feeling fresh all night long!

Go for a natural, romantic hair-do (aka channel your inner Victoria Secret Angel). The last thing you want is your guy being afraid to mess up your perfect do. If your hair is long, try using a one-inch curler to create those perfect and effortless loose curls. Hello touchable, sexy hair!

Perfect those kissable lips. Exfoliate your lips with a scrub like Jane Iredales Sugar and Butter Lip Scrub. Then, apply your favorite lip balm and top it off with a pink or plum lip gloss.

12705594_10208699999683315_7542729324705266891_n

Make a statement with a favorite scent. How a girl smells can be just as powerful as how she looks. For Valentine’s Day, opt for a soft, luxurious scent then apply a drop to your wrists and neck. Don’t overdo it though!

Have a lovely Valentine’s Day, Beauties!

IS IT TIME TO START EMBRACING OUR BEAUTY MARKS?

As our definition of beauty becomes more transparent and honest, freckles and moles have become features worth highlighting, not concealing. These so called “flaws” are what make us unique, definitely not ugly or awkward. Don’t worry about fitting someone else’s idea of perfection. If you were born with “beauty” marks, embrace them! Looking for some confidence-boosting inspiration? Check out these stunning women who are making a statement by being their own authentic selves!

DOES YOUR FACE MIRROR THE TRUE YOU?

I have a confession. I’m an upbeat, annoyingly happy person who LOVES to smile. In fact, my smile is often the first thing my friends compliment me on! But lately, I’ve noticed that my neutral facial expression occasionally doesn’t mirror that “cheerful” me. You may have heard of the phenomenon called RBFS or Relaxing Bitchy Face Syndrome. Well, I’m pretty sure I suffer from it (& apparently so do many celebrities)!

I first noticed it after a water exercise class in Mexico when my mom asked me, “What’s wrong?” The question caught me off guard because what could possibly be wrong when I’m in Cancun? But apparently, my face looked unhappy throughout the entire class. I couldn’t believe it, the whole time I was actually thinking this is such a great workout, I LOVE the sun! If you’re like me and you also suffer from RBFS, keep reading to learn a few tips to put your best face forward and turn this negative trait into a positive one!

Check out your facial expression. Get in the habit of routinely looking at yourself to see what “default” face you’re showing. Do you need to adjust your look?

Pay attention to what your “default” face feels like. Do your muscles relax into a natural frown or are your eyebrows tense?

Develop and practice a new resting expression. Aim for a positive and friendly persona. Maybe a slight smile or opening up your eyes a bit more will do the trick.

I know. It’s hard work to change your natural expression. But you know what they say, practice makes perfect. And if that’s not working, a little anti-wrinkle cream will eliminate those unwanted frown lines and creases in your forehead.

We are in it together ladies!

What’s an award show without a stunning, lit-from-within look? Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was a golden goddess whose sun-kissed skin simply glowed. How does she do it? She must use a radiant face crème like Enza Essentials Sustaining Glow Crème.
