August Special: The Dermaplane Facial

Does your “peach fuzz” bother you? Does your skin look dull, flaky, or dry? Is your make up not going on smoothly? If so, I would like to invite you to book a dermaplane facial treatment today! Using a sterile and disposable surgical blade, layers of dry, flaky, dead skin are gently scraped away with light, feathery strokes. This exfoliation will also remove the soft vellus hair that traps dirt, oil and make up on the skin’s surface. The old wives tale that “shaving” will cause the vellus hair to grow back thicker or more coarse is untrue of this specific type of hair! Dermaplaning is a safe and beneficial alternative to waxing, threading, chemical peels, and microdermabration. And, it is suitable for all skin types including ethnic, pregnant, sensitive, and rosacea. During the month of August, enjoy this treatment for only $55.00 (Regular price $75.00)



Beauty Make-up


The classic smokey eye / red lip look, my personal favorite!

On this beautiful brown eyed, dark haired model’s eyes I first laid down a primer, Stila Primer Pot in beige, on the lids from the lash line up to the brow. I then corrected dark under eye circles using the 5 Camouflage Cream Palette by Make Up Forever and set it with some translucent powder. I used a matte purple in the crease, and layered Creep from the Urban Decay Naked Palette over it to deepen the shadow of the crease. The purple accents her brown eyes and brings some fun color to this look. On the lid I used NYX Loose Pearl Eye Shadow and I highlighted just below her brow and in the corner of her eyes with Virgin from the Naked Palette. I lined her upper and lower waterline with black pencil and glued on some NYX Fabulous Lashes and some mascara to both upper and lower lashes. Using a disposable mascara wand and some small scissors, I trimmed this models brows, penciled them in with black and used an angled brush to blend lines.

When doing a smokey eye look, I prefer doing the eyes first, before the face make up. That way if there is fall out from the eye shadows or pigments you use, they clean up easily with some cotton and a light face lotion. I keep Dermalogica’s Active Moist in my kit for this reason. For her face, I first used Colorscience Skin Brightening Primer and then a Glo Pressed Base. I shaded in under her cheek bones, under her chin, and also her hair line with NYX Pecan Blush for a sculpted, bronzed look and hit the apples of her cheeks with NYX Spice Blush.

Her lips are lined and filled in with MAC Cherry Lip Pencil. I applied ontop of pencil with a lip brush Maybelline’s Color Sensationtional Lipcolor in Summer Sunset and in the middle of the lip, Very Cherry.
