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.

THE NUMBER ONE SKIN CARE MISTAKE YOU’RE MAKING AT THE GYM

Treadmills, ellipticals and exercise bikes. Sounds scary, right? As someone who frequents the gym, I love working up a healthy sweat. OK, maybe I don’t LOVE sweating but I DO love the satisfaction of staying fit and putting my health at the top of my To Do list. There’s nothing more exhilarating than finishing a workout, muscles fatigued and mind reenergized. But did you know there’s one common mistake people make during their workouts? Rubbing their face.

When-Replace-Gym-Towels

When we work out, our internal temperature rises, causing our capillaries to dilate. As our face releases the extra heat and sweat, we quickly grab for that towel to swipe the sweat off our hot and sensitive skin. Unfortunately, all that rubbing elevates redness and blocks our pores, leading up to — you guessed it — major breakouts!

Before you start pumping more iron or sprinting on the treadmill, think twice about wiping your face with a towel.  Avoid unwanted redness by taking a soft towel and gently patting the sweat off your face.

And if you can’t break the habit, try a cooling serum like Enza Essentials RosaCalm to tame redness and calm reactive skin. The solution is really that simple. 🙂

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.

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!

CALLING ALL BACHELORETTES: HOW TO MAKE A STRIKING FIRST IMPRESSION

The 2016 season premiere of The Bachelor is finally here – and if you’re like me – you’re enthusiastically waiting to see who wins over the handsome and huggable Ben Higgins. With 29 bachelorettes, it’s going to be quite a show of beauty, brains and maybe a little crazy!

So how can a lady capture her dream guy’s attention? By making a memorable (in a good way!) first impression.  Stand out from the crowd by following these tips and you could be well on your way to finding that perfect love connection!

THE BACHELOR - Ben Higgins, the handsome software salesman who was sent home by Kaitlyn Bristowe last season on "The Bachelorette," confessed to Kaitlyn that he thought he was "unlovable." Even so, he saw a "great life" with her, only to have his hopes dashed and his heart broken when he was left without a rose. Now, Ben is ready to open himself up again to love, but he still has the lingering fear of being unlovable. He will attempt to put his heartbreak behind him and overcome that fear as he searches for his one true love and, maybe more importantly, a woman who loves him back.

Be Yourself. Making a good and lasting first impression starts with being comfortable in your own skin. There’s nothing more beautiful than having the confidence to truly be you. Let that silliness shine through.

Make Eye Contact. Draw him in by simply looking at him with those gorgeous eyes. Yep, it really is that easy.

Luminous Skin. A glowing and clear complexion can help set you apart. And with the right products, it is achievable! It might be time to think about a customized skin care regimen designed specifically toward your needs, lifestyle, and environment.

Classy Outfit. What you wear sends a strong message to a guy. Make a statement with a classy number that you feel amazing in!

Smile. Did you know smiling is the most universally recognized indication that you’re friendly and approachable? Did you also know Americans trust someone with a great smile over someone with great clothes or an impressive job? So, if you can rock a great outfit and smile… I’d say it’s a win win. Don’t be afraid to show off that warm genuine smile, it very well might seal the deal.
