Let's Mix It Up A Little!!!

Hello Natural Beauties!

Have you ever been reading a magazine and spotted a color of eye shadow you wish we carried? Me too! So here’s what I did…I mixed it up!

Loose minerals are so versatile!  Unlike pressed eye shadows and blushes, with loose Sheer Minerals makeup you can add a little of this to a little of that and create your own custom palette. A bronzer with foundation, an eye shadow mixed with a blush, whatever you want. One of my favorite springtime combinations is the Ballerina Pink and Gold Rush mixed together. It creates an ethereal iridescent peach. Don’t be shy about mixing minerals from different categories: veils, foundations, blushes, bronzers and eye shadows.  Sheer Minerals are all made of essentially the same ingredients.  You can even create a custom lip color by combining your Lemongrass Spa Lip Butter with any color of the Sheer Minerals Rainbow.

Don’t worry about the mess. Purchase a Minerals Mates Mixing & Application Tray and create to your heart’s content. Mineral powders blend together best when shaken, so tap or scoop a small amount into one of the reservoirs of your Minerals Mates palette, put the lid on and shake back and forth gently.  As Sheer Mineral users know, a little goes a long way, so if you are mixing up a new fabulous shade of eye shadow, a little dab will do.

Some of my favorite combinations are:

This Just "In"….Spring!

What is “in” for Spring 2015? Well, if you are walking the runways of New York or LA, it appears that bleaching your eyebrows and applying foil to your earlobes is all the rage! No, really, it is! But, for the sake of appealing to all of you natural beauties, let’s go a little more mainstream, shall we?

The fashion trends seem to be leaning towards clean, classic and feminine. Right up Lemongrass Lane! If you are spring cleaning your closet, don’t give away those 80’s and even some of those 70’s treasures. Break out those “one in every color” polo shirts, one-shouldered blouses, dresses and tank tops, khaki and olive drab pants, and even culottes, which are all cutting edge for springtime.

The shoes of the season are flat mules and gladiator sandals. Accessorize with tassel earrings, backpack purses, obi (kimono style) belts, and round, John Lennon style sunglasses. Farm-fresh Ginghams and plaids, as well as crisp whites paired with navy or black for a nautical feel, are favorites for spring. The color palette is straight from the garden: sunny yellows, mint greens and sky blues. Again, like Lemongrass, fresh, clean and natural.

Loose curls, braids, beachy waves, center parts and, once again, straight from the 80’s, crimping are the trendsetters for hair. For beachy waves, use Lemongrass Spa’s Botanical Shampoo and Conditioner, spray lightly with your favorite scent of Hydrating Spritz and scrunch with your fingers until dry. Finish with all-natural hairspray.

And finally, most importantly, makeup! The anti aging BB Crème hits the bulls-eye for what is trending for 2015. Clean and sheen is what it’s all about: sheer coverage with a little glow. Let the freckles shine through! In keeping with this fresh sun-kissed look, skip the blush and apply your illuminating Sheer Mineral’s Bronzer to the prominent portions of your face: forehead, nose, cheeks and chin. For the eyes, pastel purples are in bloom. Lightly sweep Orchid Frost or Plum eye shadow across your lid for a fresh, romantic, springtime look.

THE COLOR OF THE YEAR IS......

MMMMMM- Marsala; A rich, warm, terra-cotta wine hue that is both bold and neutral at the same time. It is the Pantone Color of 2015 and I am in LOVE with how striking and versatile it is. It’s outdoor/fall leaves/apple cider and boudoir/evening gown/boardroom all wrapped up in one. Watch for this beautiful color to be splashed all over the pages of your favorite beauty and fashion magazines from eye shadow to footwear.

So many of our Sheer Minerals colors fall in the Marsala family or play so very nicely with it. Lemongrass Sheer Minerals Products in the Marsala family to add to your 2015 beauty routine include:

Compliment this deep, rich hue with one of these lovely Lemongrass Sheer Minerals eye shadow colors:

Weekly Facial Spa: 7 Steps to Combat Winter Dry Skin

The winter cold and wind can take the glow from your skin, robbing it of moisture, making your face feel tight and look dull, and leaving your lips flaky and peeling. If you’ve ever looked in the mirror and felt like you just can’t seem to apply enough moisturizing crème or you need more blush than you normally apply, you might just need to treat yourself to a facial spa. If you have dry, flaky skin, your makeup and face crème sit on top of that dry layer. Think of it as applying a coat of fresh, new paint to a piece of wood on top of old, dry and peeling paint. The new paint can’t soak into the wood, and the skin works much the same.

Follow the 7 steps below to bring the radiance back to your face:

Step 1: Cleanse. Using your favorite Lemongrass Spa Products’ facial cleansing gel or bar soap, gently cleanse your face and neck. Always include your neck in any facial regime.

Step 2: Steam. Steam helps to lift and separate the dead, rough and flaky areas from your skin and open your pores. Place a warm, wet washcloth on your face and neck. Using a larger cloth like a hand towel allows you to cover the neck as well. You should not experience any discomfort while steaming. Make sure your cloth is not too hot before applying to your face by testing it on a tender portion of your arm like the wrist or inside of the elbow. Let the cloth remain on your face and neck for 5-10 minutes.

Step 3: Exfoliate. Remove the cloth and while your skin is still moist, begin to exfoliate using Microdermabrasion Crème.  Be gentle. It’s easier to judge your pressure when you apply with your fingertips. Work in a circular motion. Your skin is warm and soft and your pores are open from the steam, so it will not take much pressure to exfoliate. Let the product do the work, not the pressure. Be sure to hit the areas where dry skin can build up like the corners of the nose and avoid around the tender eye area. Rinse and pat dry with a soft towel.
