TREND ALERT: FINGER PIERCING

Sunday, March 11th, 2018
We’ve seen holographic hair color, eyeball tattooing, and nose hair extensions emerge as beauty trends for 2018.  That’s why its no surprise that we recently discovered finger piercing.  The social media phenomenon was recently featured in the Daily Mail.   According to the report, couples are allegedly piercing their fingers in lieu of traditional wedding bands.
Also known as dermal piercing, the procedure requires two pieces of hardware: a flat piece is anchored beneath the skin while an interchangeable jewel is placed on the skin’s surface.  Because the hands are in constant movement, the healing period is a minimum of twelve weeks and possible complications include infection, migration, rejection, and skin growing over the piercing.

Aside from her beauty, Chrissy Teigen is known for her self-deprecating sense of humor and incredible candor.  According to the publication, Birdie, the model and wife of John Legend, recently spoke with several beauty editors during a launch party for her new Becca Cosmetics makeup palette.  When complimented on her beautiful cheeks, she responded, “Everything about me is fake except my cheeks.” Then the multi-hyphenate proceeded to point at her forehead, nose, lips, and teeth, saying “Fake, fake, fake.”  Later, when asked about the oddest beauty procedure she had ever experienced, Teigen revealed that nearly nine years ago she had undergone liposuction to remove fat from under her arms.  “I had my armpit sucked out … It added two inches of length to my arms,” she confessed.  While Teigen, 31, clearly is not shy about talking about her enhancements (unlike most Hollywood beauties) she also expresses no regret, “[That fat] is coming back though, so I might need to go in and pay for it again.”

Thank you, Chrissy, for sharing!  This makes you even more beautiful — inside and out!

KATE BEST’S TRAVEL MAKEUP TIPS!

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

Celebrity makeup artist, Kate Best, knows that most of us can’t afford to fly first class, like her many A-list clients.  Nevertheless, even Hollywood stars, like Jennifer Lopez, need some help to look their best when deplaning from a long haul.  Speaking with Daily Mail Travel, Best shares some of her favorite travel tricks:

  1.  Tie It Up — “The best way to avoid getting off the plane with your hair looking like a bird’s nest is to tie it up in a ballet-bun on top of your head when you board,” Best shares.  “It won’t pick up any grease from your face and keeps it under control so you can just shake it out upon landing.”
  2. Take It Off — Cosmetics such a eyeliner and mascara will not survive a long plane ride.  Best’s advice is to carry a package of mild, pre-moistened, cleansing wipes and remove all makeup immediately after take-off.
  3. Masquerade  — After removing all traces of makeup, Best apples a SKII Facial Hydrating Mask (a favorite of Chrissy Teigen‘s, above).  “Expensive, and you’ll look like Hannibal Lector, but worth it,” Best emphasizes.  However, while she acknowledges that there are more affordable alternatives, the key is to retain maximum hydration.  (more…)
