High Protein Face Care – Introducing Mama Mio’s Clean Slate!

If you want your skin to look amazing, you have got to try Mama Mio’s products. I’ve been using their face lotions a while now, and have never been disappointed with a single product I come in contact with. Clean Slate is NO different. The large 5 oz. bottle lasts for ages, certainly long enough for you to see REAL results.

Yoga for the face is on the rise! As an effective alternative to invasive fillers and Botox, exercise for the face tones and lifts facial muscles and promotes collagen production. Recently on Good Morning America, Dr. Neil Sadick says, “By stimulating any component of your face, like your muscles, you’re going to have a beneficial effect in terms of your overall facial appearance.”

To try this non-invasive, DIY anti-aging technique look to Mama Mio Skincare (www.mamamio.com). The Mama Mio High Protein Face Care collection feature various skincare products – each accompanied by targeted Face Fitness exercises for maximized results:

–        Mighty Moisture: A day and moisturizer ($48)

–        Clean Slate: An Aloe-rich cleanser ($32)

–        Nexercise: A neck and jawline concentrate ($45)

–        Eye Know: An all-in-one eye serum ($39)

–        Love Your Life Lines: A deep line reducer ($48)

Clean Slate is a product of two halves – Clean Slate cleanser PLUS 60 seconds of Mama Mio Face Fitness. You are going to lift, tone and cleanse your skin AND lift, tone and energise the muscles attached to your skin.

1. Clean Slate Aloe-rich Cleanser

Our superb deep cleansing sulphate-free formula leaves your face feeling fresh , balanced and happy – never tight! We use eco-certified cleansers set in organic Aloe leaf juice, pre+probiotics, firming proteins and moisturising omegas to gently remove makeup and impurities without over-drying, unbalancing or irritating skin. Oh, did we mention Clean Slate smells gorgeous?

2. Mama Mio Face Fitness for Clean Slate

Two fabulous stretches that help to release the tension of the day or wake your face up in the morning – The Lioness and The Scream. The Scream is your morning yoga – and on some mornings when you look in the mirror a scream might just come quite naturally! And the Lioness is such a deep and relaxing way to end the day – you may just give your grinding teeth a deep sleep at night. These are like mini yoga for the face. Sometimes you can see how people hold a lot of stress in their faces – these two stretches will really help to relax your hard working face so you look more invigorated and energised.

Get The Look: Ashley Greene’s Breaking Dawn 2 Premiere Look

Brand Ambassador Ashley Greene made her mark at the “Breaking Dawn 2” Premiere in LA last night. Celebrity Makeup Artist Vanessa Scali shared her techniques for creating Ashley’s stunning look.

Face:
“I prepped Ashley’s skin with mark Primed for Perfection Face Primer. Next, I applied a thin coat of mark Got the Goods Multi-Benefit Foundation Lotion SPF 15 and mark Good Riddance Hook Up Concealer where necessary. Then, I applied mark Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder under her cheekbones, temples and jaw line, adding a bit of contour and warming up her face.”

Cheeks:
“I applied mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Cheeky to the apples of Ashley’s cheeks, layered with a touch of Light Show Illuminating Face Powder. This combination softens the pigment of the cheek and creates a radiant, lit-from-within look.”

Eyes:
“I started by shading Ashley’s lids, from lash-line to eyebrow, with mark I-Mark Metallics Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Goldiluxe. To lengthen and add contour, I used mark I-Mark Metallics Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Truffle on her outer corners and in her natural creases. The combination of the two shades wrap under her bottom lashes, fading towards the inner corners of her eyes. I lined Ashley’s eyes, very close to her lashes, with mark No Place to Run Longwear Eyeliner in Foxy Brown and finished by applying a few generous coats of mark Lash Act Build & Define Mascara in Blackest Black.

Lips:
“I finished the look with a relaxed, natural lip using mark Make It Rich Lip Color Crayon in Naturally, layered with mark In a Whirl Marbleized Lip Gloss in Pink Soufflé.

Get The Look – Jennifer Lawrence’s sultry, smudged cat eye at the “Silver Linings Playbook” Sreening

I went to a screening of  “Silver Linings Playbook” last night and LOVED it. The movie exceeded my expectations,  Bradley Cooper and Jennifer were perfection together. Jennifer looked so beautiful in the movie and I love her sultry look at the screening it definitely plays up the look of her character in the movie. Don’t miss this when it hits theaters such a great movie!

“Silver Linings Playbook” Screening
Makeup Artist: Jillian Dempsey

Inspired by Lawrence’s sleek dark hair and sophisticated black pantsuit, makeup artist Jillian Dempsey used Laura Mercier products to create a modern, sultry look.

Eyes:
For this look, Jillian concentrated on Jennifer’s eyes, relying on Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Steel ($24) to deliver a sensual feel. To achieve, she first applied the shade to the upper and lower lash lines and then blended it out to create the smoky effect. She used Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colour in Sable ($22) as a highlighter to make the eyes pop and further framed the eyes with Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil in Black Violet ($20). She completed her eye makeup by saturating Jennifer’s lashes with several coats of Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Lash Building Mascara in Black ($24).

Face:
Jillian prepped the skin with Laura Mercier Foundation Primer ($32) before applying Laura Mercier Oil Free Suprême Foundation ($43) and Laura Mercier Pressed Setting Powder ($32). She applied Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Tender Mauve ($24) to get a flush of color.

Lips:
To finish the look, Jillian lined Jennifer’s lips with Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Natural Lips ($20). Then she applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Peche ($26), layering it over a hydrating lip balm to ensure Jennifer would have soft lips for the entire night.
