Click the image for more information about our lashes! 

We are bringing it back to the beginning when I first started 4.5 years ago. We realize lashes are a HUGE investment! With so many places to choose from, it can be so mind boggling which place is the right one to pull out your wallet to.

So we are bringing back the:

"Slighlty Embellished" set for $75.

You'll have 30-35 lashes applied to each eye giving you a slightly embellished look! Wear it & see if you like it. If so, just book within 3 days of your lash appointment for a full set & the $75 will be applied to it.

I have had calls over the years from clients who just want a little more lash, not a full set - and believe me, it's just as beautiful. You know the old saying that a little goes a long way! :) 
 

As always, get in touch with any questions! Thank you for reading & don't forget to subscribe!!

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

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!!  

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 😉

Introducing Yana!  Image Skincare's newest innovation. Yana is the path to radiant skin that begins from within. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and gives skin its strength and structure. As we age, the amount of collagen in our skin begins to decrease leading to: fine lines, wrinkles and loss of radiance. After the age of 25, we begin losing collagen at a rate of 1% per year. This means the average person has lost almost half of the collagen in their skin by the age of 50. With Yana's unique formulation, we can combat the signs of aging from the inside out, and restore beautiful, youthful skin.

What Makes Yana Unique

  • revolutionary beauty liquid
  • highly concentrated
  • tastes great
  • increases collagen by up to 65% in just 60 days
  • higher bio-availability

Narrow Down Your Beauty Routine

image.jpg

In this day and age, there are so many different beauty products out there. From creams to lotions and serums and every form of foundation under the sun, it can be all a little overwhelming. Here I want to list the bare essentials that can get you through your morning routine while still looking young, fresh and glowing.  

  • Coconut oil - the miracle worker. Use it as a moisturizer, hair mask, a head to toe salve, even a teeth whitener. Make sure it's refined though  
  • Essential oils - these you may have a few of, but for different purposes. Tea tree for blemishes, lavender for anxiety, peppermint for energy or skin refresher, just to name a few. You can even make your own scents  
  • BB Cream - evens out your skin tone and masks imperfections while still being lightweight, what more could you want  
  • Powder palette, one of those with a highlighter, blush, bronzer and a skin tone. You could even use some of the shades for your eyeshadow  
  • Eyeliner - in whatever form of your liking, liquid, pencil, gel etc  
  • Mascara - lashes frame your eyes and make them standout more
  • Lipstick/gloss/liner - find your signature shade of lipstick, a nuetral liner, and a light gloss. Perfect  
  • Dry shampoo - make your blowout last a little extra while giving your hair some volume  

While these are just essentials, you might add a few items you love here and there, for a special occasion or whatever it may be. Or even if you just feel like treating yourself to a new lipstick. Hopefully this list will have you try something new, maybe you'll even find your new favorite product. 

 

Love and light,

A Little Tuesday Pick Me Up

Be on Purpose! Turn every negative into a positive::)) we have gifts from God all day. You just have to see them.  

Be on Purpose! Turn every negative into a positive::)) we have gifts from God all day. You just have to see them.  

Hi all (: Today I want to spread some positivity and inspiration to all of you. This is for anyone who may feel stuck, or any type of negativity whatsoever. We've all been there, and it's easy to feel like you're the only one who's ever felt the way you do. Know that you are not alone!! For every emotion or feeling you've ever felt, there's so many other people who have felt the same or similar without you even knowing it. A lot of people don't speak about what their internally feeling for the fear of being misunderstood.

What I want to instill in everyone going through any kind of hardship right now is that you have the power to change it. Yes, you! You are the first, and only person that can help yourself. It's easy to get into a negative cycle and think that there's nothing you can do to make your situation lighter, but the longer you think that way, the longer things will stay the same. Be the change you wish to see. Your mind is your most powerful organ in your body. It's a lot stronger than you may think. Everyone has the ability to attract what they want in life through positive thinking. You know the saying, "a negative mind will never lead to a positive life." It sounds corny, but it's true. What you put out into this world is what you attract. In religion we call it spirits, in science we call it energy, in the streets we call it vibes. However you look at it, those energies you give out will come back to you. Don't get me wrong, nobody's perfect, and everyone can get down every once in a while, but taking those negative circumstances and letting it fuel you to make it a positive instead of letting them bring you down is your key to having a better outlook. It's not about what's going on around you, but how you choose to look at it. Perspective, my friends. 

I would like everybody starting today to pick out all the good things about your day, even the tiniest, most insignificant things. Make it a daily practice, and watch how your mind set changes. You can thank me later (;

Love and Light, 

Lexi

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.

The Best Spring Makeup Trends For 2016

Spring has finally sprung here in New Jersey (at least for now) which means it's time to up your look! Everybody feels a little better when the temperatures start rising, and you start to put a little more effort in. The no-makeup makeup trend has been around for a while, but that reign is over. It's time for bright red lips, electric eye's, glitter and fluffy lashes. 

Classic look red lip and black liner. For a super easy look when you have zero time in the am!! Throw hair in a bun and add a POP OF RED COLOR TO LIPS!! you will look perfectly prepped:))

A red lip is always a classic, but on the runways for spring this year it's never been so evident. The color to keep in mind: Snow White apple red, with a satin finish, for a fresh low maintenance look. Or if you want a little more drama, go for a stay in place all night matte. There's tons of liquid to matte lipsticks out there nowadays. Opt for a simple black liner on the eyes and you're set.

My favorite look I've been seeing is blue for the eyes. Yes I know you're all thinking, "how the hell do I wear that?" The answer, any way you want. Don't be afraid of a little color. You can do a smoky eye with a sparkly navy instead of your traditional browns and blacks. You could even take a cobalt blue liner and use it on your bottom lash line and smoke it out a bit with a neutral shadow. Any way you choose isn't wrong, have fun! 

This is so much fun!! This was my go to back in the day!! Wear it on your lashes over mascara. Get it at   www.ramy.com

Now mascara has been on the back burner for a little while, but the emphasis on lashes has made a come back. For those of you that are on the blue eye movement, another fun trick is to add some colored falsies, just to the outer corner of your eye. Pair it with bare skin and a nude lip to really make them stand out. Also, you could always invest in a little eyelash extensions, at EmbellishU (; for a fluffy, flirty new look!

Spring Into Spring With Barely There Manicures

image.jpg

I know that spring is the last thing on anyone's minds with all this rain, but let's hope that this only means that warmer, sunnier days are upon us! Give your digits a fresh start with this years hot trend, barely there manicures. Instead of opting for your classic light pinks and other pastel colors, try a little nude, practically skin tone shade, for a done yet un-done look. It's a fresh, clean and simple look, great for spring.

Discover Essential Oils

image.jpg

Happy Monday everyone! Needing a little clarity and relaxation? Look no further. Essential oils can be used in a variety of ways. From natural medicine, aromatherapy, household cleaning and personal beauty. Essential oils come from distilling or extracting different parts of plants, including flowers, leaves, bark, roots, resin and peels. You can benefit so much from their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties without any side effects like over the counter medicines. Let's harness the power of the world's most proven therapeutic compounds!

Doterra

Doterra

I offer three essential oils in my online shop. Peppermint, Lavender, and On Guard, a special blend. Depending on your goal, these three oils can target several ailments. 

Peppermint - Gives a cooling sensation, and can relieve sore muscles. It also has antimicrobial properties so it can freshen bad breath and soothe digestive issues, as well as improve your mental focus and boost energy. 

Lavender - Reduces anxiety and emotional stress. Improve sleep and promote relaxation, also alleviates headaches. Use topically to improve eczema and psoriasis. 

On Guard - A blend of wild orange, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary. It is great for immune support. Also good to use to purify the air in your home. 

You can distill your oils in the air, use them topically by applying behind your ears or on your wrists, or even put a few drops in water or tea, always check first if they are food grade though. Whatever way you choose, I guarantee you won't be disappointed. Check out my online store for all your essential oil needs!

Post Holiday Skin Revival Treatments Image Now- Age Later

Time To Undo

 

A new year is the perfect time to refocus on renewing your lifestyle and rejuvenating yourself. While many people make New Year’s resolutions to get back into shape, they forget that their skin could use some repairing, too. With the stress, excess eating and drinking, lack of sleep and traveling that comes with this time of year, it can really start to show on your face. Also, the adverse effects of winter weather can leave your complexion looking dull, dry and tired.

 

Our Image skin care line has all the products you need to get your skin looking healthy, hydrated and luminous! The Vital C collection is geared towards environmentally damaged skin. Including vitamin C, they also contain vitamin A and E and other essential vitamins, peptides, and antioxidants to soothe dehydrated skin. The hydrating serum, which was voted best Image product, is one I highly recommend. It is ideal for all skin types, smooths visible effects of fatigue, and fights free radicals. You can apply to cleansed skin morning and evening or even combine with your favorite foundation for a dewy, youthful finish.

 

Another common issue we all face is dark circles. In addition to a lackluster complexion, nights of missed sleep are most noticeable around the eyes. Lack of sleep also makes the face look paler, giving a concave appearance around the eyes.  The intense brightening eye crème delivers a complex of encapsulated lightening ingredients that release for up to 48 hours for a long lasting effect. It also helps to significantly reduce the visible signs of aging around the eyes including puffiness, wrinkles and lax skin. Your eyes will instantly look firmer, brighter and more radiant!

 

Another good method to use is to incorporate essential oils into your routine. Not only are they beneficial to your skin, certain aromas can open up your airways, a must have during winter months! A good salve can be used as a moisturizer or be applied to your chest to ease breathing.  As always at EmbellishU we not only encourage looking good on the outside but also feeling great on the inside and treating our bodies right.

 

Love and Light,

 

Lexi

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
