We can thank the Kardashin sisters for the
full pout trend that has gravitated to mountainous heights over recent years!

 Kylie Jenner, the youngest kardashin, who really emphasized the impact lips
can have on your overall appearance. 

Kylie Jenner
has created a whole business based on accentuating your lips!

Kylies Lip Kits were in such high demand, that when launched totally crashed the online website! 

The promise of the perfect ‘Kylie Lip’ sent beauty divas into a tail spin!  

While many of us really could not be too bothered with the Kardashins!

We do care about our lipstick colour, texture and finished look.

(how confusing can it be)

Oh the Stress!

WARNING:  Tearing hair out is a strong possibility whilst in the process of selecting correct shade and textured Liptick!
PLEASE view Dumbies Guide Below to avoid baldness!

‘Dumbies Guide to
Lipstick Jargon’

Moisturising 
For dry lips, to keep lips soft and smooth, wet and shiny finish.

Satin and Sheer Lipsticks
Nourishing, creates a nice shine and gloss, need frequent reapplication.

Matte  
Effectively flat look, usually full in colour and an even shade.

Cream  
Designed for smaller lips, waxier texture to protect lips.

Pearl & Frosted  
Reflects light and shiny effect on lips – can have a sparkle and glistened finish.

Gloss  
Enhances the dimensions of smaller lips, effective combined with traditional lipstick.

Long Wearing and Transfer Resistant
For the busy woman, formulated to last up to 8 hours.

Lip Pencil Creations

Investing in a lip pencil can enhance many aspects of all your lipstick selections.

 Lip Pencils can create a whole new colour when combined with your chosen lipstick, they increase the length life of your lipstick, as well as creating more enhanced definition to your lips.

Lip Pencil styling

 

When applying your lip pencil refrain from colouring in your lip like a picture.

Rather stroke in a diagonal direction, not necessarily covering the whole lip.

Creating these contours on the lip will help prevent lipsticks ‘bleeding or feathering’

 

 Lip Pencil Tip

When selecting a lip pencil always trend
towards a soft crayon for
smoother application.

Managing Makeup with Manic Menopause!

Managing Makeup with Manic Menopause!

It’s a part of life women have to look forward to…NOT! 

Our Mothers and Grandmothers have put out the warning to us, hot flushes, moodiness, fatigue, lack of sleep, headaches, extra hair growing where it should not, hormonal outbursts – unexplained tears or crying at the orphaned children in Uganda on tv! 

Yes, girls, we are all going to enter this manic realm!

So I decided to research what makeup was out there for Menopausal Women – it’s a common complaint I hear from women experiencing menopause.

Makeup doesn't last!

I sweat it off!

I feel too ugly for makeup

I believe that the beauty world emphasis so much on the perfect makeup – using highlighters, contouring, smokey eye look, winged liquid eyeliner, that the poor women powering towards menopause feel its all too hard to have a great look and resign to the fact that we are now going to have disastrous, slide off-my-face-before-I-leave-home glamour look if we even tried.  Remembering by the time we hit menopause, generally, our eyesight is not spot on either, unless we are wearing glasses – to do a close up liquid eyeliner needs nose-to-mirror and no glasses……BOOOM!!

Jumping onto Google (THE place to go these days)

I typed in Foundation for Menopause…

First search hit was Australian Menopause Centre with links to FAQs, Menopause Treatments, a free ebook and a free consultation. Mmm, yes helpful, however at this stage of looking for foundation we probably have pinpointed that THAT is what we are experiencing.

Second search hit was Revlon Foundation. Wooohoooo! Yes – AAHHH NO! – I clicked on the link and it produced all the selections of Revlon foundations that are available… For ALL skin types! Arrgghhhh – I have MENOPAUSE, what is good for MENOPAUSE????!!!

Ok, so I scroll further – ooooh Jean Hailes – click! Yes great information, however when I read her link to ‘Fifty Shades of Menopause’ I believe I still wasn’t on the right site! Go ahead and have a read if you desire!

Then it happened! FINALLY.

Woohoooo – an article from Daily Life on awesome beauty vlogger Lisa Eldridge had a handy tutorial for menopausal makeup! JACKPOT! Her tutorial is definitely worth the watch! I love the interaction from her model discussing her experience with menopause.

Lisa does gorgeous simple makeup – the only critique I would mention is the use of her fingers for application. As each of our own bodies produces unique oils, using our fingers to apply to another person’s skin, I believe can affect results.

Also, we are dealing with a woman who may be already experiencing sweating, excess oil issues, we certainly do not want to mix ours into that equation!

Here is Lisa’s fantastic tutorial for you to watch!

Great watch, wouldn’t you agree? 🙂

The unrealistic part, in my opinion, is all the different companies that Lisa used to showcase the products!

Some very reputable, excellent products: Dior, Mac, Lancome, Bobbi Brown, By Terry, Rimmel, Shu Uemura, Nudestix, just to name a few! I don’t know about you though, if I had to go to each of those companies to purchase 1 product, I think I would go insane AND give up!

So I have done some groundwork for you!

I have rewatched Lisa’s fabulous youtube video, and I have replaced all the lovely products she has used with products from Nutrimetics so you can achieve the exact same result!

1 SHOPPING BASKET! YES PLEASE!

Nutrimetics also has an extensive skincare range to provide a solution for pigmentation concerns.

It Pays to Clay!

It Pays to Clay!

One of my fondest memories as a child growing up in the bush was swimming in muddy dams to cool off!  Squishy, cool clay mud lining the bottoms of the dams, we would cover ourselves head to toe in mud, feeling the sun drying the silt for a tight, cannot move our face sensation!  Now, later in life, maybe this is the reason I never seemed to have many acne related problems as a teenager.

 

Kristie's Insignt

Clay Treatment Masks certainly have secured their spot in the beauty market!

According to Euromonitors research, the face mask is a prominent part of a Korean beauty regime. The recent K-beauty phenomenon has increased their popularity enormously.  Add social media to the mix, and experts say the mask category is on track to grow further.

What is a Clay Mask For?

Designed to detox the skin, the clay draws the impurities to the surface (that is the tightening feeling we experience during treatment) and promotes a healthy glowing complexion. Excess oil and dirt are absorbed as the clay treatment dries.

Clay Mask Breakdown

The Tingle Effect

Feeling the impurities being drawn from the pores

The Colour Change

From black to grey – see it working!  This process is extremely interesting as parts of the clay on the face take longer to dry than other spots, initially you may think that you have applied the clay slightly thicker in that area, and this is simply not the case. Visible ‘wet’ areas or spots indicate that your clay treatment is working a little harder in that area – maybe the pore is blocked more than other pores.  I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!

The Result

Smaller pores, instant glow and ultra soft skin!

Clay Mask Step-by-Step

STEP 1

Apply a generous amount of the product onto a spatula, then using fingertips to gently apply a full coverage to the whole face.

Kristie’s Quick Tip

Using some Nutri Rich Oil (or similar product of Vaseline) around the hair line and around the eyes to prevent the clay becoming stuck in the sensitive hairier areas!

STEP 2

Leaving the product on for approximately 10 minutes, you will experience the full benefits of the  Clay Treatment.  Wash off with a cleanser either in the shower or with a warm face cloth.  You will need to cleanse a minimum of two times, once to remove the product, a second time to clean the remainder out of pores.

 

It is extremely important to complete your skin care regime, with a toner and suitable moisturiser!

Real Results

Now, I workshopped an ‘It Pays to Clay’ Day recently with Nutrimetics Ultra Care+ Clarifying Clay Treatment, and as you can see, this product was very suitable for all age groups as well as men and women!  Funny that – Men have just the same skin concerns as women!

Powerful Ingredients

Kaolin Clay
Draws impurities
Black Rice Powder
Gently exfoliates dead skin cells
Raspberry Fruit Extracts
Hydrates and tones
Natural Volcanic Clay
Absorbs excess oil

Playing with Clay can be lots of fun, and the benefits far out way the little bit of mess this product makes when washing off!  Clay Treatments can and should form a regular part of your skin care program. You will honestly never feel as firm or as clean as you will with these kinds of treatments.  There are many in the marketplace, however, Nutrimetics results have been tried and tested.

The Makeup Confident Bride

The Makeup Confident Bride

Effortless, picture-perfect skin and makeup rate high on any bride-to-be’s list!  Planning, organising and prioritising never ceases during the engagement period!  Dress, cake, flowers, photography, decorations, seating plans… it can be very overwhelming!

Beautiful skin and makeup are on the list, however, it will be a long way DOWN the list! Essential skincare regime and makeup plan is an early necessity for that list! Check out any bridal magazine to see the skin care recommendations commencing 12 months prior to your wedding date!

Kristie's Secret

My recommended Treatment solution is Nutrimetics AHA Complex Peel Creme which removes dead skin, clears pore blockages and restores healthy skin function. Keep this essential beauty product on the bed side table and apply as you jump into bed! Skin cell renewal happens every night between 2am and 3am!

See previous Cornflakes, Raisin and Grape blog!

Let's face it

(pardon the pun)

We have to look at our wedding photos for the rest of our lives, so we want our skin to be in peak condition.

Makeup styling

Makeup styling is a very personal preference for each bride.

Every Makeup Artist should be skilled to enhance the natural beauty of the bridal party. Always be conscious that any formal makeup needs to be fuller than what you normally wear because of the lights/flashes associated with photography. I have popped up a few little guide points for you when discussing your makeup needs.

Foundation

Ensure on the wedding day an excellent primer is used prior to foundation application.  I recommend a full, lasting, coverage that is non-caking, as well as allowing the skin/pores to breathe.

Professional Flawless Air Serum Foundation

by Nutrimetics

This product creates a weightless, radiant and undetectable second skin – this is our airbrushing foundation in a delicate eye dropper application and specialised foundation brush!  This formula blurs imperfections.

NC Cover Rich Foundation

by Nutrimetics

This product is formulated to deliver a full breathable foundation that effortlessly smooths and perfects any skin complexion. This foundation will go the distance providing a great coverage for your day.

Mascara

Nutrimetics has excelled in this area with their many options for mascaras.  Most other companies use tar and boot polish in their mascaras – EEEEKKKK! However, Nutrimetics mascaras are naturally lined with beeswax. (this helps with wedding tears)

NC Lash Impact

by Nutrimetics

This revolutionary formula moisturises, softens and nourishes lashes, while delivering impeccable colour intensity and lash definition that won’t smudge when in contact with water.

Kristie's Quick Tip

To create a longer thicker looking lash, apply product underneath the lash as well as on top of the lash, curling your wand as you apply.

Blush

NEVER EVER miss the blush!  You will look like a pale canvas painting if you skip this amazing product!

Kristie's Quick Tip

Start high on the cheekbones and work down and across in circular brushes.  The trick to blush is building slowly until you have a nice desired cheekbone!

Mwah!

Luscious tantalizing lips bring the whole makeup look together!  Nutrimetics has a beautiful collection of colours to parade you down the aisle.

NC Lightning Lip Gloss

by Nutrimetics

High gloss finish with built-in LED light and mirror for quick and easy touch-ups. This non-sticky formula gives lips a luscious shine in a choice of soft and bold colours, while the automatic light and built-in mirror ensure precise application anywhere, anytime.

Kristie's Quick Tip

Create a fun plump glossy lip by applying a beautiful Lightning Lip Gloss over lipstick. Enhancing the ‘cupids bow and middle of bottom lip’ for a lovely dewy moist kissable lip. Simply Stunning!
