It seems like everywhere I look soap is gracing the pages of many beauty spreads. Soap style cleansers are back in a big way and not just any kind. Black soap is all the rage because of it's ability to heal problematic skin, remove scars caused by acne and an allover great pimple preventer for oilier skin types.
One of the best ones on the market is Shea Terra Organic's Rose Hips Black Soap. Although this is in a liquid form rather than soap, experts say this can be better since soap bars have more of a tendency for bacteria build-up. Customers as well as spa professionals have said they've never seen a product work faster than this one. This 100% natural product is a mix of rose hips and African herbs that are filled with skin renewing and anti-oxidant properties. Think of it as a microdermabrasion treatment without the abrasion or the cost! It effectively and gently breaks down dead skin layers to reveal a cleaner, calmer and brightened skin!Read More »
Bvlgari is known for it's elegant, beautiful and expensive jewelry line. For those of us who can't afford the bling, you can still enjoy the feeling of high end luxury through their stunning fragrance line. Best of all, this luxury is totally affordable!
One of my personal favorites is Bvlgari's Mon Jasmin Noir. Otherwise known as seduction in a bottle, this refined fragrance has notes of angel wing jasmine, vibrant wood and musky nougatine. As the sun goes down slip into a slinky cocktail dress and splash on the woody evening sister fragrance Jasmin Noir. With summer right around the corner Bvlgari's Omnia Coral captures the floral fruity tone of the tropics and far off oceans. Also inspired by the shimmering hues of red coral both in the gorgeous bottle and notes of pomegranate and goji berries. Awaken your senses with one spritz and you'll be hooked forever...Read More »

It’s prom season, and the girls are going gaga over metallic eye shadow. But you don’t need to be a teenager or use prom as an excuse in order to experiment with the latest gilded eye makeup. The trick to wearing metallic eye shadow is apply it so it looks beautiful and sexy, not clownish and over the top.
Tips for using metallic eye shadow include:
Carefully match shades. If you’re not sure how to mix and match the latest shimmering colors, cheat with Jemma Kidd makeup. The Jemma Kidd Makeup School cosmetics line includes I-ris Enhancers that provide a trio of perfectly matching metallic colors for your blue, green or brown eyes.
Wear primer. Keep the glimmer in place by using an eye shadow primer over your eyelids as a base. If you don’t have a primer, a cream shadow will do the trick. Let the base dry before applying your metallic eye shadow.Read More »
