Feels like Fall, Foundation Goes A Shade Lighter, Lipstick Goes A Shade Darker

Fall is officially here ladies and so is my favorite month of all, October. While I'll certainly miss bronzed skin and breezy hairstyles, the new season has me in the mood for exciting beauty trends it comes with. 

The trend - fresh, highlighted skin  

Loving the new highlighter kit from Anastasia also Mario master palette!! Great fall colors

Radiant, glowing skin is back. "Non-touring" is what many people are calling it; the look of heavily covered and overly contoured skin is gone and creamy, dewy skin is here.  

How to get the look - opt for a lightweight foundation to even out your skin then apply a concealer around the noose and under the eye to help camouflage any imperfections and blend. Finish the look with a highlighter on the tops of your cheekbones and Cupid's bow of the lips.  

The trend - peachy lids  

The new neutral that everyone can wear. You can go as bright or as subtle as you like. Pair it with a nude lip for day and for some added drama, with a deep crimson shade for evening.  

How to get the look - Use a cream color at the lash line and blend up until you reach your desired look. Then, finish with a light sweep of powder shadow.  

The trend - glitter eyeliner  

Think of leaves as they turn colors, all the shades they turn too!! Use that for inspiration:))

While unexpected for fall, glitter on the eye has been popping up all over the runway for fall. For an everyday look you can pair it with black eyeliner for a edgy, fun look.  

How to get the look - Apply a black liner around the entire eye. Then you can add the amount of glitter you like by patting it on with a small round brush. Use a cream for a softer look. Make it neutral and wearable with colors like copper, rose and gold.  

The trend - berry stained lips  

Great fall highlighter!! 

Great fall highlighter!! 

A true fall classic that anyone can rock. From deep, dark berries and purple to black, darker colors can be extremely flattering and make you standout. It also works well with all lip shapes and comes off very romantic. If you're feeling adventurous. Go for a darker berry, blue, or even black shade.  

How to get the look - For a soft lip, apply a darker shade to the center of your lips and then use your fingers to draw the color out to the lip line. Always make sure your lips are exfoliated and moisturized beforehand.  

The trend - dramatic lashes  

Volume lashes!! Great for woman who want a deep more full look! Or someone who doors not have a lot of lashes it's a great way to give the illusion of having more!!

Lashes are more popular than ever this season and are the most luxurious way to dramatize any look. Wear them alone or with light illuminated eyes for a high contrast look.  

How to get the look - Customize your look with individual lashes or load up on your mascara. Or for more permanent drama you could get your lashes done with me 😉

Style Essentials

Let's talk a little about some fashion tips. Individual style is very important especially for us women. It allows us to be creative and express who we are as a person. I've curated a list of some essentials that everyone should have in their closet that you can mix and match with your own unique pieces for the perfect look.

Great easy coats to wear and super cute!

Black and brown belts fun detailed work too. For that sexy but edgy look.

  • the ever popular, LBD (little black dress) if you ever have somewhere important to go, you can't go wrong with one of these. 
  • black pumps, what better to go with your LBD than some cute little heels. Here you can have some fun and go with a patent leather, or maybe a classic pointy toe, the choice is yours. 
  • black skirt, if you're not one to choose a dress as a first pick, a skirt can do just as well, a nice mid length looks good on everyone 
  • white collared shirt, this you can dress up with your skirt, or even a nice pair of slacks, or you can totally dress it down and pair it with some distressed jeans
  • black/brown belt, for those outfits that are just missing a little something 
  • structured blazer, another item that you can dress up or down, a black or navy goes well with mostly everything, or you can have some fun with it and choose a statement color to go with a black outfit for a pop of color 
  • dress jeans, in a black or gray, still office appropriate but still comfy 
  • button down cardigan, a neutral color is best so you can wear it with anything, you can choose or more fitted style or opt for a long loose style for a different type of look
  • rain coat or denim jacket, for when you need something lightweight, but still want to look chic and put together at the same time, yet still practical 
Love the tailored flare pant, very slimming. Also a good pair of boyfriend jeans, you dress up or down!

A Look Into Permanent Makeup

As all of you know, I love and am a huge advocate on expanding my education and furthering my skills in the beauty industry, which is solely built on the fact that I love to make others feel beautiful, inside and out. So without further revue I'd like to announce that I am officially certified in permanent cosmetics! I will be finishing my apprenticeship this week. Then off to take my test to get licensed my the American Association of Micropigmentation. This has been a long time goal of mine and I'm so glad I now get to offer this to wonderful clients. With permanent cosmetics your daily makeup routine can be even more effortless. You can be out the door in literally under 5 minutes. Never worry about getting that fine line of eyeliner to be just right only for it to smudge halfway through the day. Want a little more color on your pout but hate the feeling of anything on your lips? Permanent cosmetics can help that. I can add a little color, even enhance your natural lip line, if you so desire; the possibilities are endless. Maybe your hand shakes and it's just not possible anymore, or you had a sickness that claused you to loose all your hair, allergies,and sensitivities never help! Well look no further. I have been trained by the leading school the Geru herself at Beau Institute. Now, keep on the lookout for my new permanent cosmetics location, which will be separate from my new business you've all heard about. This summer's going to be fun (:

 

Love and Light,

Lexi 

These were all different eyebrows on different woman. They barely had hair. Some were done with a shading technique, then came back for hairlike strokes after words.

This is still Healing:) but a huge part to remember, Heal, Peel, and fade. My mom literally just wears gloss. Your color then disappears and comes back. Faded though.

Volume Lashes, The Ultimate Luxury of Eyelash Extensions!

2/3D Volume Lashes

Let's face it the lash industry has really boomed over the last eight years. It's not a cheap service and you get what you pay for!! It truly its a luxury service, and a really amazing experience too. My main priority after the health and safety of your lashes, is making you feel comfortable. I want you leaving relaxed, rejuvenated, and revitalized. The atmosphere and my crystal warm bed will heal you from within. Now lets go on to explain what Volume Lashes are!

Volume Lash extensions is a new technique that can offer great volume, so many lashes up to 360 per eye! Seriously it’s like POW! It is unique in itself to also offer to woman that are not able to wear classic lash extensions, due to having sparse thin lashes. Whether it is from a medical condition, hereditary or with age, as we know things change.  Let me tell you a little history about the two techniques so you can understand them a little better.

This is the Premier lash of them all! kardashion lash 3/4 D

This is the Premier lash of them all! kardashion lash 3/4 D

Classic lash extensions are done with one single lash extension that is applied to one of your own natural lashes at the base of your eye, but before your skin. Myself or another technician does this by using two long stainless steel sanitized tweezers. One tweezer holds the lash extension and one tweezer isolates one single natural lash. Now if you have sparse hair we cannot fill in any gaps. We can apply hair where hair is. There are different weights and lengths in lashes and all that is based on the health of your own natural lashes. 

Full on Glamour! 3/4 D

Now we get to Volume Lash Extensions. So as far as the technique goes and isolation of the lashes its all the same. Volume lashes is a technique that you will pick up very fine eyelash extensions 2,3,4,5,6 lashes at one time. You create small fans. This technique really is for technicians that are already advanced in there lash career. I say this cause you really have to know how much glue and the weight of the lashes. Health and safety first, always!! The lashes are much more fine this way you can use more lashes on one eye and fill in gaps and give the illusion of having longer, thicker, and more full lashes. Without compromising the integrity of your lashes. The price of volume lashes is anywhere from $350 to $400 for a full set. The maintenance is $100/$125. It takes up to 3hrs to put them on. The fill can take up to 2hrs. Usually about 1.5, but when you go full on it takes longer. If anyone says it should be quicker trust me it's not a good reputable place. 

So that is the difference between the two lash techniques. I hope you understand a little more and know there is something for everyone! If you want to hear more or have any questions subscribe and be in touch!

Love and lots of Light,  

Lex

Find A Way To Baby Soft Feet with Baby Foot!

Make sure to presoak and soak day after treatment:)) 

Make sure to presoak and soak day after treatment:)) 

Sandal season is officially upon us! If you're anything like me, your feet may have gone through a little neglect over the winter months, and a simple pedicure might not do the trick for you, but fear not! I am introducing a new product to my studio, Baby Foot! It does exactly what it sounds like, peels your skin of all dead skin cells, revealing baby smooth feet. The upside to this though is that it's a one time treatment. Yes, you will see results after one use. No filing, no scrubbing.

Don't forget to Facilitate this process soak your feet for 10 mins here and there. It helps looked the skin. Don not peel the skin.  

Don't forget to Facilitate this process soak your feet for 10 mins here and there. It helps looked the skin. Don not peel the skin.  

It works by using 17 types of natural extracts that will not only peel off the dead skin cells, but provide incredible moisturizing power and will help maintain your skin's texture. The main ingredient is fruit acid (collectively referred to as Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid) etc. You'll find these ingredients in many cosmetics and bath salts because it's safe to use, effective and has the ability to remove odor. 

Baby Foot is incredibly simple to use and after 5-7 days, the dead skin will start to peel off and the skin on your feet will be as fresh as a baby's foot, literally! I am offering them for $18 plus tax here at EmbellishU, just call or text in advance.

Want to know what changed my life and was able to give me opportunity to be my own boss?

Life can throw some hard balls at you, I think we can all agree on that. Sometimes you need an angel to come down and help you and that's exactly what happened for me and my story.  

I was in a dead end job going no where made $300 a week, rent was $1000. I had to buy food, utilities, cell phone, and that does not cover the cost of clothes to look professional. My car was a total hazard. I was told it was a death trap. 

So one Easter a friend of mine we went to AC   I have no idea where he went, so I went on my merry way started playing craps. This man appeared out of no where. He says " here play". So I did, and I started wining and winning BIG he said please take this money, Put it in your bag you need it. I was a little confused, cause I am not a street walker as  I told him. Then he chuckled. I did not know what to do, what did this all mean, how much longer could I play before it became greed? Do you think I can do this more often? My mind was racing. So that night I walked away with a good amount of money. I put myself through eyelash school that was my first investment, the basic and advanced, purchased the kit (ours were not included), bought a massage table, and a computer. This man changed my life. So thank you whoever that man is out there I am eternally grateful. 

Doing eyelashes raised the bar for me, as you will learn in my class. There are so many techniques, and I have been to 4 schools none like my first school. She was the best. I have picked up so many tips, and tricks that have made it a lot easier too. It takes hard work and dedication but it's worth it in the end. When you see how happy your clients are and you get compensated accordingly. Not just anyone can do this or teach it. It takes patience. Take a step in a new direction and add this to your repertoire.  I want to be the one to change your life so you can provide for your family or make a better life for yourself..

All my Best,

Lexi
