Finding Your Perfect Match

We’re talking makeup matching, not dating, ladies! Choosing the correct makeup foundation or lipstick can be a little overwhelming when there are multitudes of options. Do you know if you are warm, cool or neutral? Don’t panic …  most people don’t know! Selecting the correct color of makeup and clothing can help you put your best and most vibrant face forward.

Choosing the wrong undertone for foundation can make your face look ashy or yellow rather than healthy and glowing. If you have pink (cool) undertones and you mistakenly choose a foundation with yellow (warm) undertones; being opposites on the color wheel, you aren’t going to be bringing out and enhancing the natural glow of your skin. Foundations are designed to blend with and smooth the color and appearance of your own skin.  If you look in the mirror and something doesn’t look quite right and you don’t have the healthy, vibrant look after applying your foundation, you may have chosen the wrong undertone.

To determine if you are warm cool or neutral, we need to first differentiate between “tone” and “undertone”.  The tone of your skin can change depending on the time of year it is. You may be a light in the winter and a tan in the summer.  The undertone, however, is the color under the surface of the skin.  Think of it as backlighting behind the skin.  I may be a medium, but am I a Sand Medium (cool) or a Golden Medium (warm)? This all depends on the undertone. Surprisingly, the color of your eyes and hair are not necessarily determining factors in your undertone.

The 3 undertones are:

Cool:  pink, red or blue undertones

A Lemongrass Spa Christmas Story

T’WAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS and I was HOME ALONE.  It was a SILENT NIGHT, so I filled a foot tub with my Herbal Foot Soak, applied the Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Mask to my face and lowered my mall-weary feet into the blissfully warm water.

Suddenly, my phone rang. “BAH-HUMBUG”, I said under my breath, “It’s probably another solicitor!” Regardless, I answered the phone, and a tiny little voice, like an ELF said, “You’ve been invited to a CHRISTMAS VACATION!! MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS at the HOLIDAY INN!!”

Not knowing what kind of HOLIDAY AFFAIR this would be, I stopped and pondered.. 

Would it be a Swanky Soirée?

It’s Creeping Up On Halloween!

Have you seen what is lurking around in the Halloween costume aisle? Beware! The makeup can be FRIGHTENING!! So many are under the impression that simply because a novelty Halloween makeup has made it to the kids costume aisle, it is safe. This is not the case. Many of the commercial face-painting products on the market today contain petroleum-based ingredients (derivatives of what you put in your CAR!) EEEEEK! The bright and heavily pigmented colors contain artificial dyes, lakes and fragrances. Some are labeled “safe”, “non-toxic” or “hypo-allergenic”, yet are loaded with skin allergens such as cobalt, chromium and nickel and even LEAD! It can be very misleading to simply read the front of the package, because when you read the ingredients…BOO!!! HalloweenMakeup.JPG

Fortunately, with Lemongrass Spa, there is a safe alternative. Almost any ghoul or princess is achievable with the versatile Sheer Minerals Makeup! Any of the Sheer Minerals powders can be mixed with water or Healing Elements Balm to glide on effortlessly. Our Black and Brown Natural Eyeliners can be used for outlines, cat eyes, black noses and freckles. The Organic Crème Lipstick in Siren is a perfect blood-red! Add a little sparkle to your favorite mermaid with Azul or Gold Rush Eye Shadow Gold Rush Eye Shadow. The possibilities are as big as your imagination!

In the pictures and instructions below, Mandy and Megan, stars from our very popular, recently released makeup demo video series, demonstrate the versatility and ease of application of Sheer Minerals as Halloween makeup and their results are ADORABLE!
