Thicken Your Hair with Chamomile

You’ve heard me right. In addition to chamomile to calming an upset stomach, calming migraines, calming the redness on your skin (even for babies!), it has amazing benefits to thicken your hair. Who knew?! Quite honestly, this doesn’t apply to me, as I have really thick hair, enough for the bald heads, as my many hair stylists have told me since i can remember. Not too brag. So, I had turned to a friend who has thin hair to try this out. 

Since thick hair derives from healthy hair (how to obtain and main it, click on the link for my tips :)). All you have to do is drink a cup of chamomile tea.

4 Tricks to Reduce Inflamed (Redness) Skin

 

Image result for lemon juice

Lemon Juice

Lemons, limes and grapefruits are natural bleechers, which means they help to remove any uneven complexion, redness, dark circles, brown/sun/age spots, etc. IF you don’t have sensitive skin, you can use the lemon juice (or any citric fruit that is mentioned) as is. If your skin is sensitive, then dilute the citrus juice. Dilute it with water. If your skin is very sensitive, like mine is, then I diltue the lemon juice by pouring in the same amount of lemon juice. So, if you have a quarter of a cup of lemon juice in your cup/jar/bowl, then the same amount of cool water is what will do the trick. I promise you, it will not cause an irritation to the skin. Same goes for lime and grapefruit. This mixture makes for a great all natural toner. 

Aspirin

Ibuprofen to be precise helps to reduce reduce redness, this includes blemishes. For the full recipe, please click on the link above. 🙂

Bamboo Gel

Bamboo reduces and calms any redness on your skin. It’s also an anti-aging ingredient, so in addition to removing the redness, it also keeps the fine lines and wrinkles at bay. Bamboo has recently been discovered to be a bit more effective than aloe vera, in addition, it works much quicker, too. Don’t get me wrong, aloe vera is an oldie, but goodie. I know that The Face Shop has a really good bamboo gel.

Benefits of Chamomile Tea

Chamomile

Thanks to its bacterial and calming properties, chamomile is so gentile that you can even apply it on your baby’s bottom when they have a rash or just straight redness. After brewing the tea bag, through away the tea bag. Wait for the tea to cool down. I’d say wait about ten minutes or so. Use a makeup pad (one that you use to remove your makeup) on areas where you have inflammatory skin. Even rosacea. This has been an ancient treatment to treat inflamed skin. Or you can enjoy a cup of tea after brewing it. If so, enjoy!

I love mixing colours to create my own llipstick shade. When I was younger Iw ould create my own lip gloss colour to create a custom colour. With a light lipgloss and a lipstick of any colour or a lip gloss mix the two colours together on the back of your hand with your lip brush. Once mixed apply.

Reduce Puffy Eyes & Dark Circles with Green Tea Bags

When I want to remove puffy eyes, and even dark circles, I use green tea bags, as opposed to regular tea bags to place over my eyes. Green tea contain antioxidents, plus Vitamin C. So, it keeps your eyes looking young. Perfect bonus. This is my trick when sleep just isn’t doing it, as in loss of sleep.

I may brew the tea bags, or leave them dry and place them right over my eyes. It really does remove the puffiness and dark circles. Now, I must say, if eye puffiness is hereditary, I’m sorry to give bad news, but no matter the cream or treatment you do, the puffiness will not ever lift. If it isn’t hereditary, you have hope in saying good-bye this issue.

So, all I do is remove two green tea bags, lie down and place them over my eyes for about ten minutes to fifteen minutes. And, remove. It really depends on the level of darkness and puffiness. To be honest, at thirty, I don’t get a sevre amount of either … at least not yet.

You can also brew two tea bags, place them in the fridge to cool them down, then place these two tea bags over your eyes for about ten minutes to fifteen minutes. Then discard.

NEW Smashbox Photo Op Eye Shadow

 

PHOTO OP EYE SHADOW SINGLES

Smashbox Photo Op Eye Shadow $18

We polled makeup artists in our L.A. photo studio for their most versatile, eye-enhancing shades—then packed their faves into one-swipe, true-color singles.

If you have not tried this eye-shadow, let me tell you, it’s super-blend-able like it promises. I love it when I’m on the go, and don’t have time to blend, blend, blend. 

Stacey’s Tip:  When it’s highly pigmented, my best advice is to do you eye-make-up first. This way, if you need to clean anything up that falls on your face, you can make-up remove it. Instead of placing a kleenex under your eye, white powder under your eye, etc. I personally find these to be additional steps that make applying make-up much longer than it has to be. This way, you can clean up any mess from your eye-makeup with a make-up remover if you need to. Apply your base (primer, foundation, concealer, powder) after you have your eye-makeup is in place. 

  •  Velvety formula
  • Highly pigmented, even color

Do’s & Don’ts of Wearing Eye-Liner on the Bottom Lash Line

Applying eye liner on the bottom lash liner gives the illusion of small eyes. This technique is good for larger set eyes or even medium set eyes. Small set eyes should avoid this technique, unless you are using the tight-liner technique where you are applying liner -right at the water-line. In addition your eyes will look tired. 

Do

In the photo above of Tyra Banks, the liner on the lower lash line is applied with a pencil liner normally the liner goes a quarter in to your inner lash line. Then with your eye liner brush smudge it for as far as you like. 

 

Don’t

Hayden Panteniere

This is a don’t, because the liner on the bottom of the lash line for these eyes only gives the illusion that her eyes are smaller, and she even looks tired. This what this technique does if it isn’t used correctly.

Get the Look: Eye Opening with Mascara

Image result for eye opening makeup

Using your mascara you can open your eyes, plus an illusion that your eyes look larger with a certain technique. Let me first begin with the basic technique of applying mascara.

Ingredients:

Paper Towel

Mascara

Directions:

DSC_8706

Step 1: When removing the mascara out of the tube, wipe the excess product with the paper towel. 

Step 2: Apply the mascara by wiggling the wand on your lashes. Applying it from root to tip only creates clumps, and it doesn’t get into every lash. Wiggling eliminates the clumpiness, plus removing the excess product.

Step 3: Apply two coats of mascara on all of your lashes.

Step 4: Apply an additional coat only on the outer upper lashes. It really opens up your eyes.

4 Tips to Perfect Brows

Image result for brow grooming

I never realized how much work goes into grooming brows, until I became a make-up artist, because all I ever did was get my brows waxed, filled them in with brow powder and a brow brush to maintain them. If I wasn’t going to rely on waxing my eye-brows, then I suggest tweezing them. 

Image result

My Tips:

Ingredients:

Make an Appointment with my Esthetician  – Wax Brows

Brow Brush to brush up the brows

Brow Brush to fill in the brows.

Brow Powder to be used to fill in the brows.

 

Directions:

Once your brows have been waxed. Grab your brow/eyelash brush to brush your brows. I prefer to brush them upwards. They look fuller, cleaner, as well as this technique really opens up your eyes. 

With your make-up brow brush of your choosing, dip it into your brow powder. Use brow powder, as opposed to eye shadow. Although, you can use it. Eye shadow isn’t really sturdy enough. It’s a bit more flaky, messy, light. Brow powder is much sturdier to remain in place without using brow gel. Remove any excess product onto a paper towel or the back of your hand. I have a few faves. Smashbox, YSL, Anastasia – For a full list of my Top 9 Brow Powders, please click on the link. 

Begin applying the make-up at the arch (middle) of the brow, working your way to the tail (outter eye). Not adding on any more product, finish it off by filling in the inner eye of the brows. To blend, brush your brows once more upwards.

Make-Up Artist Trick:

Follow every step, except the first one. Instead of waxing, use tweezers to pluck your eye-brows.
