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 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,

The Latest In Lip Enhancers

Here are some ideas of different lip shapes and pouts:) 

Here are some ideas of different lip shapes and pouts:) 

So this is a subject I've been wanting to talk about for some time now. I've noticed that permanent cosmetics and other cosmetic procedures have become more the norm lately. Well with celebs like Kylie Jenner who debuts fuller lips what seems like every week, what else do you expect. That being said I wanted to share with you a new innovation to one of the most popular names in lip enhancers, Juvederm. They have just been approved for their formula called Volbella XC, for lip augmentation and correction of perioral rhytides (aka lines around the mouth.) The filler is created with hyaluronic acid, which has been called the "fountain of youth." It acts as a cushion and lubricant to fill in those lines and gives subtle volume to the lips. Studies show that Juvederm Volbella XC can soften the look of rhytides around the mouth and improve lip fullness through one year. Pretty impressive stuff. Makes you think twice about some lip injections doesn't it? 

Always,

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,

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. 

Smutty Green From Mac  Apply to inner corners to outside corners! Want to make it super intense!!! Dampen your brush and pat it on!!

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 this is fun! Keep the eyes soft. You can use soft brown from Mac. Also do a blue line under your eyes mixed in with the soft brown... You are the next fashion statement:))

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!

Guide To Crystal Elixirs

image.jpg

Morning! I want to introduce to you a new product here at EmbellishU, crystal elixirs! We all know the benefits to your well-being crystals can provide. A crystal elixir, essentially is a water based essence containing crystal energy. Water absorbs the crystals energy pattern, potentializes it, and stores it. These elixirs bring the healing power of a specific crystal to you. As with all spiritual practices, your intent is everything. It is best to set your intention before taking an elixir, for example, if you are using Ametrine to open your third eye, before taking the drops, state either in your head or verbally, "My third eye is now open, and so it is." This energy stated in the present tense is imprinted in the dosage and the desired outcome is manifested more quickly. Healing processes are magnified when the person is an active participant in their healing. 

Here is a list of some of the combinations I'll be providing!

  • love- rose quartz, moonstone, jade
  • money- citrine, jade, aventurine
  • protection- amethyst, hematite, snowflake obsidian
  • peace- amethyst, jade, blue lace agate 
  • healing- quartz, bloodstone, jade
  • good luck (good for gambling, or when you need a little luck on your side) - jade, citrine, quartz
  • emotional healing- rose quartz, blue lace agate, amethyst
  • purification - quartz, citrine, amethyst
  • weight loss- rose quartz, snowflake obsidian, jade
  • blessing and consecration- quartz, citrine, amethsyst
  • fertility- rose quartz, jade, unakite 
First Homade crystal Elixer!! Washed appropriate crystals, then boiled them. Intensifies the energy! We will see!!

How To Harness and Invoke Lunar Energies This Full Moon

Hi all! I'm feeling especially inspired by this full moon we have in Virgo tonight so I wanted to share with you some rituals to use this energy to your fullest potential! Full moons are all about release and letting go. This is an incredibly potent window of opportunity to change, remove, release, shift whatever in your field is not in highest alignment with your being and you have the entire universe by your side, immensely supporting you and blessing you as you choose higher. Allow these energies to cleanse your being and fully serve your soul, and release what doesn't nourish your heart. 

image.jpg

Start off with setting your intention. Manifestation is so instant and holding on to attachments of less than will constantly block your field from greater blessings. Grab a notebook or journal and write down everything you want to get rid of. Light some candles and burn some sage if you have, that will aid in grounding yourself and take away any negative energy. When you're done with your list, take at least three deep breaths and move your consciousness into your heart. Place your full intent on release and burn your piece of paper and imagine those things being purged from your life. It is also good to take any crystals you have and let the moon light charge and cleanse them so they can serve you better. 

 

I encourage you to please review your life today and see what is no longer serving you and what is no longer in harmony or balance. This specifically has to do with all relationships both in your outer world: with partner, job, location and with self. Know how serious the universe is about you letting go what isn't in balance and what isn't nourishing your soul. 

If you don't like who you are, where you are, what you are doing, who you're with...Change it now! You must participate relentlessly in the co creation of your future! No one else has the power to do this for you. 

Blessings dear ones!

Lexi
