The truth about concealer

Hello Angels!!!

I wanted to write a quick not about concealer. In order to choose a concealer you would need to do the same thing as when you choose foundations. (See previous post)
As far as color you need to determine what it is you want your concealer to do.  Let us take undereye circles for example:

For a more natural look you need to use something with a yellow tone for lighter skinned individual and orangey colors for darker skinned beauties. For my everyday look I would go one shade lighter than my foundation. When I want a more dramatic look I might blend out an even lighter shade underneath the eye. I would also match the finish of concealer to that of my foundation.  Concealer is definitely something you should try on. Please do not be scared to try different shades to get your desired effect and shade.

Creating a Celestial Foundation!!!!

Hello Angels!

When speaking to so many women, one of the most frequently asked questions is. “How do I find a good foundation to match my skin?” Believe it or not this is not just a problem for women of color. The most important thing is to not look like you have a mask on. Makeup is meant to enhance and make you look your best.  We will attack this topic by addressing these three topics. They are 1) skin type, 2) finish/coverage, and 3) undertones.

Skin Type:

1. Oily – might benefit from matte finishes to control oil.
2. Combination- has different zones of skin types on the face. This skin type can use different types of foundation depending on whether you are more oily or dry.
3. Dry- better with liquid or cream to somewhat hydrate the skin
4. Normal-can use any foundation


1. Matte- no shine allowed . Great for someone with oily skin. It also works on normal skin.
2. Dewy-gives a healthy glow. Not ideal for oily skin
3. Natural- looks like you but better. Neither dry or dewy


1. Cool- has a mixture of blues and reds. Skin goes well with silver jewelry
2. Warm- yellow/red undertones. Skin goes well with gold jewelry.
3. Neutral- can go either way


1. Sheer- the lightest coverage. It is used to even skin out but not to cover imperfections.
2. Medium- what the majority of people use. It covers some imperfections.
3. Full coverage- is thick and opaque. This covers most all imperfections.

If all else fails go to your local makeup counter and ask to be color matched. Don’t be afraid to try and look at your makeup outside the store. Be sure and bring an objective person with you and trust your gut.

Until later My Angels!

P.S......I would be happy to answer any of your questions.

Crackle, Shatter, and Save! (Nail Polish Review)

Hey Angels!

Why pay the nail salon five to ten dollars for a nail art when you can do it yourself? You may ask yourself, “What is this girl is talking about?” Well, I have a new obsession that will enable you to save time, money, and still be fashionable!

In my quest to give myself and my little Angel affordable manicures and pedicures, I stumbled upon the new rage in nail polishes that gives you a unique and designer look each and every time you use it: Crackle/Shatter Polish. These crackle or shatter polishes are easy to use, and are manufactured by an array of companies.

Here is how they work:

  1. After you have filed/shaped your nails, apply one coat of your favorite nail polish. Let this coat dry completely, otherwise the crackle/shatter polish will not crack/shatter the way it is supposed to.
  2. Apply one coat of the crackle or shatter nail polish and prepare to see magic!

The polishes range from six to eight dollars per bottle. My daughter and I have tried several brands and here are some quick reviews:

  1. Crack by China Glaze: has great colors, nice crackle, but takes some time to dry
  2. Crack by Sally Hansen: does not crack a lot, but is reasonably priced
  3. Shatter by Opi: by far the best, comes in awesome colors, shatters instantly, and dries quickly

These polishes have been flying off the shelves. If you buy your own crackle or shatter nail polish, you can bring it with you to the nail salon and your nail art will be absolutely free! This is also great for young girls because instead of taking them to get expensive manicures and pedicures, they can do it themselves! I can attest, my daughter loves them, and changes her nail polish every three days.

You can purchase these nail polishes from Sephora, Harmon’s, Sally’s, Walgreens, or anywhere cosmetics are sold.

I would love to hear some feedback. Which brand do you prefer?

Later Angels!!!
