Summer Fragrance

From the iconic Ron Robinson in L.A, Bronzed has notes of orange blossom, Caribbean musk, bergamot, and grapefruit. This beachy scent with a well-known Hollywood following will make you feel like your own special star. Available in a small sprayer, perfect for your weekend vacation, or a roll-on to stash in your purse and touch up throughout the day. ($45 for spray bottle, $65 for roll-on)

Sun-baked sophistication from Barcelona with notes of bergamot, Egyptian jasmine, cedar wood and vetiver. D600 will make you imagine the fancy older sister of that well-know orange suntan lotion, making it the perfect sexy fragrance for hot summer nights. ($180)

The Oda Glow

The Oda Glow

After we do our customer's makeup, they always ask us, "How did you make my skin look so 'glowy?'" We love fresh, dewy skin and always use this look on our customers. No matter what your coverage needs are, the result will be a healthy and radiantly even complexion. 

The starting point for our signature makeup look is perfectly primed skin. Skin that is hydrated and exfoliated will always make your makeup look better. Please come in or call us and we will recommend a personalized 3-step routine for you!

 

 

First:

Begin with the Original Chic Tinted Primer applied with a wet sponge over the entire face. One of the main things we notice is that our customers often don't put enough of the Primer on. Although this a natural look, having an even complexion is incredibly important to creating the luminous glow. Then, add brightness around the eyes with the Dual Action Concealer in one shade lighter than your Tinted Primer.

 

Second:

Lots of Matte Bronzer! Our Matte Bronzing Powder will never make you look orange or unnatural. Take a large kabuki brush and start under the cheek bone right in front of the ear then slowly make your way in to the center of the face. Repeat on the other side. Then add more bronzer around the hairline of the forehead. Finish with a quick sweep over the nose, in the crease of the eye, and along the jaw line.

Third:

The last step in getting The Oda Glow is piling on highlighter. We are head over heels for the RMS Living Luminizer. Not only does it add a bit of shimmer, the coconut oil base gives the prettiest balmy sheen. Apply a generous amount to the tops on cheek bones and blend. Then add a small amount over the bridge of the nose and along the cupids bow of your upper lip for a plump pout.

  

That's it! The most important thing to remember is that while this is a very natural makeup look, make sure you're using enough product on the base then focus on using minimal makeup on the eyes, lips, and brows. We finished off the look with our Shimmer Brow Gel and the Original Chic Lipgloss (a customer favorite!) in the color "Nearly Naked."

Below are the products we used to get this look. Shop these products in store and online! As always, if you'd like us to show you how to do this in store, pop-in or make an appointment and we can show you how to get The Oda Glow. 

 

Shop the products here:

Clockwise starting in the upper right: Matte Bronzing Powder, Lipgloss in "Nearly Naked," Tinted Primer, RMS Living Luminizer, Shimmer Brow Gel, Dual Action Concealer (some products shown are only available in-store but are also available with a phone order).

At Home Skincare Indulgences

At Home Skincare Indulgences

Quiet, at home beauty indulgences are such a nice thing to do this time of year. De-clutter then enjoy the peacefulness of a winter night skincare ritual. Why not...

Take a Decadent Bath

  • Itchy Skin? Try adding a moisturizing oil or calming plant essence to your water. We love Santa Maria Novella Chamomile Bath Essence or Pomegranate Bath Oil. 

  • Tired Muscles or Mind? We created our relaxation bath salts just for you. Extra doses of lavender and tea tree and colorado sage are what make these salts super healing.

Treat Yourself to a Weekly Facial

Start by deeply removing makeup and then cleanse. Jurlique's Replenishing Foaming Cleanser leaves skin incredibly clean and soothed. Next, exfoliate your skin with an extra-strength glycolic pad to remove dead skin cells and prep for effective masking. We've found Cane & Austin's 30% Glycolic Pads to be the most powerful yet gentle way to exfoliate. Lastly, feed your skin with a great mask.

  • Dehydrated? We love Dr. Hauschka's Firming Mask
  • Congested? May Lindstrom's The Problem Solver will reduce inflammation and purify and tighten clogged pores
  • Need a lift? The Purely Age Defying Sheet Mask from Jurlique tightens and leaves skin plump and hydrated

Don't Ignore Your Hands and Feet

Let's face it, when your hands look pretty you look and feel put together. Margaret Dabb's lemon myrtle scented hand scrub buffs away rough hands and finger tips. The Age Repair Hand Cream by Grown Alchemist nourishes and re-densifies thin, papery skin.

Feet that feel good are a day changer. Keep the feet's skin soft, supple, and callous-free from Margaret Dabb's pedicure line. Start by soaking feet in the Foot Soak to ease tired feet and soften their rough skin. Then, cover feet in the Foot Lotion to leave them soft and silky.
