Makeup Essentials a post by guest beauty expert Alyson Sichenzia

luka cosmeticsThere are a few basic makeup preparation essentials you will definitely miss depending on your everyday local cosmetic shops without guidance from a makeup professional.These are the essential daily foundations for a beautiful, long-lasting makeup application, so don’t neglect them ladies.

It’s a crime if you don’t prime! Primer is the number one product to a successful makeup application. Without it, your makeup will be dull and start to breakdown throughout the day!

-Eye base is the key to an eye-popping shadow application ! Eye makeup is the first to wear off on your face, an eye base or primer will be the trick to both eyeliner and shadow staying put!

-Luscious long lashes are the way to go! Lash primer will extend your lashes and prep your mascara leaving a fuller lash look!

-Setting powder sets your entire day and keeps your face on! Use a sheer and light setting powder to hold your makeup in place all day long.

At Home Spa Party

Natalie New, an esthetician and nail technician with the Spa at PGA National, recently just organized an at home spa event and let us in on how the event played out:

“Michele Lackovic recently called and spoke to me, regarding her daughter Anna’s upcoming tenth birthday. She wanted to create an at home spa party and hoped I could facilitate her event. “Absolutely,” I replied. Then the fun began!

First, we organized outside by her pool with the young ladies seated around the table. I explained the proper skin care techniques and used the Spa at PGA National’s skincare line: Phytomer. Specifically, Phytomer’s Gentle Cleansing Milk, Rose Visage Toner, Vegetal Exfoliate, and Hydracontinue moisturizing crème.

Then, Michele and I created an exciting hands-on craft session. Michele ordered Old Navy flip-flops online and selected ribbon from a craft store to tie bows.

As their take home gifts, she gave away Lavender Epsom Salts and mini mason jars for bath salts!

Not to mention, while the girls were in their craft session, each received toe polish changes. And of course, delicious birthday cupcakes and crustless finger sandwiches were served with spa smoothies as we completed our event.

Each young lady took home a beach bag filled with spa sandals, bath salts, wash cloths and the PGA National Resort and Spa home care kit.

“It was my favorite birthday ever,” Anna said.

Overall, helping Michelle create her daughter’s special birthday event was absolutely wonderful.”

Beautiful brows in five minutes by Guest Blogger Alyson Sichenzia

alyson photoMany women under-estimate the beauty of eye brows. Believe it or not, the brows define and shape the entire facial structure. If your brows are done, with a little eye shadow, mascara and lip gloss your whole face appears to be done and gives the illusion your makeup is complete!

Step one –use  Luka brand tinted brow wax to shape and shade in the brow, a little of this product goes a long way.
Step two –  use concealer to clean around the bottom and top of the brow for a clean natural look.
Step three – use a clear brow gel to comb through brow to set it.
“And voila you have brows!” 
Stop by the Spa at PGA National to experience Luka Cosmetics yourself and meet Alyson, Resident Make Up Artist.
