Oz Glinda Inspired Makeup

Disney’s “Oz the Great and Powerful” was such a visually stunning movie to watch! I loved the imagination, creativity and most importantly, all of the female characters. Their beautiful costumes to perfectly done character-based makeup were all so intriguing. I was especially stunned by Glinda (played by Michelle Williams). Her glowing skin and silver shimmer accents on her eyes were all so remarkable to capture the spirit of the Good Witch of the South. If you would like to see how I recaptured her makeup look done in the movie, please watch below.


Multi-Purpose Useful Beauty Products

We all know that taking care of ourselves with beauty products can become a little pricey. There’s a product for every purpose. Specialized products for face, hands, nails, body, feet… Every part of our body can be beautified by some product that is targeted only for that area. In search of trying to find ways to cut costs, I have found few products that can be used for more than one purpose. Some of these, you won’t even find in a beauty store. Don’t get me wrong. I own tons of products for my daily routine. But, there are still ways to use your household products for a beauty fix. Watch the video below for some of my findings!

Style Matters

   If you got it, you got it. But, most people never had it and spend hours a day trying to get it.  The bottom line is that it’s hard to be fly!  Styles change, bodies change, and your change may not add up.

But, fashion savvy people know how to look their best…and so should you!  It’s important to be familiar with an array of colors, full names, first names, and acronyms that represent the crème de la crème of the diverse fashion industry.  Blue boxes, red bottoms, Big Brown Bags, Ralph Lauren, Jimmy Choo, Louis Vuitton,  Chanel, Prada, Ferragamo, BCBG,  DKNY, ENYCE.  Now, if you don’t know something about this you better ask somebody!   Because these colors and names define style and you need to get some.  Below is a video of pioneer fashion designer Angela Dean.  She is the featured designer in our Fashion Stylist course.  http://www.faithindreams.com/course-celebrity-fashion-stylist.php

February Favorites

Where does the time go? I can’t believe it’s March already! Almost ready for spring! I have been fighting a battle with the weather lately and my skin has been suffering. It’s freezing, then warm, then windy, and now hot? For my favorites in February, most of my staple products that I’ve used on a daily basis are to fake that healthy and glowing skin during the harsh weather conditions. No matter what, we can’t have perfect skin all year round. Unfortunately, you will see changes in your skin as seasons change and weather climates go from one extreme to another. My skin has been especially dry during this winter and I am doing all I can to find hydration. Drinking a lot of water and applying heavier creams all help, but there are also simple makeup tricks to fake that glow. Here are my favorite products that helped me get through the cold February weather this past month.
