Being a makeup artist has taught me so much about not only beauty on the outside but beauty on the inside. alyson2It’s important to get plenty of nutrients on a daily basis to nourish our immune systems. The body needs electrolytes and antioxidants to feed off good energy throughout the day. During this time of year we can feel alot more run down and fatigued by the end of our work day.

Believe me ladies this healthy way of life will show change in your skin and the way your skin feels.

Tis the Holiday Season by Beauty Contributor Alyson Sichenzia

‘Tis the season to be jolly and what a better way to do that than with your look from head to toe. Nothing says holiday cheer like a bold red lip, pink cheeks or smokey eyes. The look I am describing is a no brainier dolls. Gather all your makeup goodies together and lay it all out. Then dig out those sparkly lip glosses and glittery eye shadows and have some fun! Play around with blending shadows and ombré lips. Don’t be afraid to be dramatic with eye liner and contour pencil. Love who you are but the holidays are a great excuse to step out of your everyday natural looks and to make a bolder statement.

The beauty of makeup is that it’s temporary and you can simply wash it off any time. Create any look your heart desires; Have fun and be bold!

Have you heard of an amazing lipstick brand called Lipstick Queen? If not your totally missing out. I have just been exposed to the new “Silver Screen” fall line. When we think of fall we think of beautiful deep reds, purples, browns, metallics, and even a pretty coral especially here in South Florida!


The first beautiful lipstick Shade, I want to introduce you to is called ” Have Paris” a gorgeous red. This red will have your man going gaga over you. It is a blend of cherry and orange that allows for an amazing pop of color.


“Stlla” an electric purple, is to die for! It is a perfect blend of a bluish purple hue with a metallic sheen that we light up a room, everyone will do a double take when they see you sporting this color!


“Made It” is a deep purplish brown. This vampy lipstick darkens up your lips to perfect fall shading. It looks beautiful on any skin tone and goes great with a layered fall look.

The Evolution of Essential Oil by Guest Expert Angela Gonzalez

doterra-vs-OTC-imagephoto 3Did you know that essential oils were used throughout history by many cultures and date as far back as the Egyptians? Cleopatra, who was historically known for her beauty, was believed to use essential oils in her beauty rituals and in her seduction of Mark Anthony. Essential oils were considered a valuable commodity and were often traded for gold, they were used by King Tut and many bottles of essential oils were found in his tomb. The Greeks, Romans, Persians, Ayurvedic Indians and Chinese have used essential oils for health, beauty treatments, food preparation, massage, religious ceremonies and aromatherapy. During the era of the Bubonic plague it was noted that a band of thieves who were robbing the victims of the plague were not becoming ill. It was later learned that the thieves were perfumers and frequently applied aromatic compounds on themselves creating protection from illness! Hippocrates, known as the father of medicine, practiced a holistic approach to healthcare utilizing herbs and essential oils to treat his patients. Clearly the benefits of essential oils were well known but with the introduction of modern medicine they started to be utilized less. The good news is that many people are becoming more health conscious and the use of essential oils is on the rise.
Essential oils are compounds found in plants which provide protection from disease. They also offer the plant a wonderful aroma. When you smell a rose or a peppermint leaf you are experiencing the aromatic quality of that plant. The interesting thing is that essential oils can provide therapeutic benefit to people and animals as well as plants. There are three ways we can effectively use oils: aromatically, topically and internally. Our sense of smell can trigger many reactions in the body. Some essential oils can be stimulating, calming and some can purify the air when diffused. When applied to the skin, essential oils absorb very quickly providing local benefit. They also circulate throughout the body providing internal benefit. Essential oils are antioxidants and some can be used internally to promote benefit.
A good quality essential oil such as doTerra will ensure the most therapeutic benefits.
