Cleansing of the Ages

Everyone has their own specific routine for skincare and as we all know it changes over the years. We decided to test out how it evolves by inviting some guests to explain to us what they use for skincare and how their routine has changed over time. First we started with skincare for Cassidy who is in her 20’s. She uses just three things, Cetaphil bar soap in the shower, Olay Total Effects 7 in One Day Cream, and a few times a week St. Ives Apricot Scrub.

Next, we have the 30’s and 40’s which is where I come in. I use the Pharmagel Age Defying Skin Care line. This comes with many products that I believe works best for my skin

Now for the 50’s. Our lovely Vivian of Vivian Photography where I have my office, joined us and let us in on her skin care secrets. She uses Arbonne products for her daily routine.  As you can see below, she even has a flat iron for your face! This product warms up and is like a little at home facial!

Bring on the 60’s! My mom came on to show us what she uses daily. Her new favorite brand, Babor, is found locally at Buttermilk Falls in Milton, NY. They have large variety of products for different specific needs you might have.

Jump into the 70’s! Joan has been through it all when it comes to skin care. She has tried everything from expensive products to drug store products and has ended up back with the first brand she ever tried…Neutrogena! She uses Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser and Clinique day and night cream.

As you can see skin care changes a lot as you age. Some people like a large skincare routine with many products, and others enjoy a quick easy three step process to look their best! To hear about each guest and their routine, check out our YouTube Channel!

Dance Recital Makeup with my Little Princess

After traveling to all of those weekly dance classes, the day has finally come where your little girl is going on stage for her dance recital. The biggest question I am asked as a mother and makeup artist is “how much makeup should I put on my daughter?”, “do I really have to fill in her eyebrows and put on blue eyeshadow?”. The answer is no! You do not have to follow that list of makeup rules you’re given for the recital. All you need for your little girl is mascara, bright lipstick (pink or red), blush, and cute little ballerina bun. Check out my tutorial on dance recital hair and makeup with my daughter coming soon. She will show you her favorite dance moves and be sure to make you laugh!
