Relax & Unwind..

unnamed

After a long day of work I love to unwind, relax and have a hot bath! When I’m stress I love to use a face mask and rejuvenate my skin. Today I’m using The Face Shop Real Nature Face Mask in Red Ginseng, the benefits of using this mask is that the Ginseng extract with helps energizes and nourish tired skin.

I love these face masks they are so easy and cheap too! ($2.00 CAD) Each mask is 1 single-use and they come in a variety of types depending on what you want out of it and your skin type (dry,dull, aging etc.) The Face Shop offers a large selection so your bound to find one that suits your needs. For instance the Blueberry Face Mask is great for softening and hydrating where as the Kelp Face Mask is a purifying which is great if you are experiencing breaks outs or even if you wear makeup on a daily basis it’s great to clean and purify your pores.

They are quite simple to use, you unfold the face mask on freshly cleansed skin and leave on for about 10-15 minutes. You gently tap on the skin until the serum is completely absorbed and go ahead and follow up with a moisturizer

Have you tried The Face Shop facial masks or any of there products? If so let me know what I should try next!

Red, Red Wine

Trend Alert!

Red-wine-lovers, this beauty trend is for you! At New York Fashion Week Fall 2014, deep berry and wine shades were being sported all over the runway.

If your daring and want to wear this lip just keep a few things in mind –

Finding the right shade is key; it all depends on your skin tone but lipsticks such as Mac’s Diva & Nars Scarlet Empress are pretty universal and compliment many skin tones.

If you have thin lips, a dark lipstick could make them appear even smaller. So start with a sheer stain and use a lip pencil to fill out the lip ever so slightly.

The key to wearing a berry lip is to keep the rest of the face fresh and glowing. Use a sheer foundation and concealer and skip powder entirely. Then apply a blush in a complementary shade or even take a simply sheer out the same lip color on cheeks!
