Being a self proclaimed “marketers dream” I have tried a TON of skin care products, cleansers, toners, masks you name it. I have to say the ONE thing that has made a huge difference in my skin care routine is my Clarisonic brush. It leaves your skin feeling squeaky clean, removing all the makeup and actually cleaning my face and not leaving a bit of cleanser left on my face. Not to mention, it makes all cleansers last at least 2x as long, you can use the smallest amount!
I purchased mine months ago, now there are several types with different settings! What is the one part of your beauty routine you think has made a difference for you?
This may seem like a stupid post to some of you but – I never took the time to understand why there are 3 colors of concealer + what they are for. I feel as a smarter beauty rep and part of Bona Clara I should know this kind of thing. So allow me to enlighten those of you who, like me, have not ever taken the time to understand the rainbow of flaw cover ups most make up brands have to offer.
Apparently there is a method to the madness. Each of these colors are opposite each other on the color wheel and there for “cover up” or tone down the blemish.
Yellow, also known as Apricot in color, used to conceal bluish bruises, under-eye circles and mild red tones on the face.
Green is used to normalize yellow-colored skin imperfections such as sallow complexions and yellow bruises. It can also help conceal very dark under-eye circles and dark spots on bronze skin tones.
Purple is used to neutralize red tones on the skin. Use this for covering blemishes, zits, red blotches, rosacea, port-wine stains. Who would have thunk it… not me. Do you use colored concealers?
Soon after we finished in San Antonio we were off to a small town about an hour away called Fredricksburg. As soon as we arrived I knew I would love it. Kathy, one of the reps in town was hosting her launch at a wine bar on the main street. Fredricksburg is a mini Germany they say, all the restaurants serve german fare and – it felt like I had traveled back in time.
Back to the wine bar, it was the most adorable antique shop in the front and the most hip wine bar in the back! I am not normally one for antiques, but I have begun to appreciate certain ones in my old age, not to mention, the way everything was displayed was nothing short of perfection.
Here are a few of my favorite gems!
I thought this “b” must have been for Bona Clara!
Just as fast as we arrived, the Fredricksburg leg of the 543 tour had ended and we were on to the next city!
I am so excited to be a part of Bona Clara as they really define their leaders and the woman who will have a hand in shaping the future of the company. The feeling as I mentioned the other day is so hard to describe. The woman “founding leaders” attract are the most ambitious, smart business woman I have ever met. I feel like I am a HUGE part of something thats going to EXPLODE!! We are planning SO much travel for this month I dont even know how I am going to keep up with it all! I am beyond excited (incase I havent said it 10x already). Ill keep you posted on the cities ill be visiting! How on earth did I get so LUCKY!?!?
