Exude the confidence of Alyssa Milano with insider beauty tips from Mary Kay Glam Squad celebrity makeup artist, Virginia Linzee

Face:

Begin with Mary Kay TimeWise Luminous-Wear Liquid Foundation for glowing skin that looks flawless on the red carpet. Don’t forget to bring the foundation down the neck for all over flawless coverage and blend evenly using a cosmetic sponge. Using the Mary Kay Facial Highlighting Pen, smooth under the eyes, on the cheekbones, and down the bridge of the nose to instantly brighten the face.

Add warmth and dimension to the skin with Mary Kay Mineral Powder in a shade that is two shades darker than your own skin tone. Using an angled cheek brush, lightly dust the powder along the hairline, in the hollows of the cheekbones, under the chin and down the neck to define the angles of your face. Sweep a little Mineral Cheek Color in Citrus Bloom onto the apples of the cheeks, using a blush brush.

Eyes:

To keep your eyes red carpet worthy all night, start with a little Mary Kay Eye Primer. For eyes like Alyssa’s, use the Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trio in Tuxedo. Start with the silver on the eyelid. Then use a crease brush to blend the black shade into the crease, as well as the outside part of the eyelid and in the lower lash line. Finally, use a brush to blend some of the white in the inner corner of the eye to add brightness and makes eyes really pop. For stunning eyes, curl lashes and apply several coats of Lash Love Lengthening Mascara in Black.

Lips:

Apply True Dimensions Lipstick in Natural Beauté and NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss in Au Naturel. Complete Alyssa’s red carpet look with Mary Kay Makeup Finishing Spray by Skindinavia, applying in a “T” and “X” formation to keep makeup looking fresh for up to 16 hours!

Molton Brown’s products make me feel like I’m staying at a 5-star hotel…. in my own home.

Have you ever tried a product that just made you feel fancy? This product makes me feel fancy. It’s the kind of hand soap you only want to bring out when your friends are coming over for happy hour, and then after they leave, you put it away so your kids won’t use it. It’s that fabulous (and I do mean fabulous). It smells HEAVENLY – and the scent lingers on your hands for hours after washing? Doesn’t that just sound fancy? Let this handwash transport you to a different country – a different life. Okay, that’s hokey, but still… it’s pretty stinking fabulous.

I had the pleasure of sampling the Molton Brown Handwash in Rockrose and Pine scent. OMG. Next I want to get the set!

Luster Pro Light has changed the game – again!

mhu-reviews-luster-11-5

I’ve been a Luster Premium White fan for a while now. I am OBSESSED with their product, Distinctly White, for a while now. They take all the fuss out of whitening teeth. Seriously! You know when you walk through the mall and they have those teeth whitening kiosks? How much does that cost? $100? $200? How much would you pay to whiten your teeth? How about a whitening kit you can use – AT HOME – for just over $40?

Luster Premium White has launched an AMAZING new kit called the Luster Pro Light kit. You can use their whitening kit at home – and you WILL see results. Guaranteed. They’re SO SURE you’ll see results – they even give you a chart to mark your progress! I’ve been using this kit for a couple weeks now, and I’d post before and after pictures – but that grosses me out. So you’re just going to have to believe me. This new kit is groundbreaking. Groundbreaking!

Our patented xenon light technology delivers a whole new level of whitening to your teeth.

Luster™ Pro Light is one of the fastest, most effective ways to whiten your teeth.  Enjoy visible whitening in as little as 30 minutes—that’s 2X faster than strips and trays—without any tooth sensitivity. Its patented dual energy whitening light accelerates whitening so that you have whiter teeth just in time for a special event. And its flexible treatment schedule lets you whiten when you want, either all at once or spaced out across several days. Testing by a major dental university shows Luster Pro Light is completely safe on enamel, so you can be assured that whitening your teeth is both safe and effective.

Luster Pro Light offers the same advantages of in-office dentist whitening treatments…but without the painful tooth sensitivity, inconvenient dentist office visits or expensive fees.  Its patented dual energy whitening light technology provides similar results to professional dentist whitening treatments while using much more gentle application methods.

The Luster Pro Light kit includes an accelerator mouthwash, whitener gel and activating light. Learn more about each piece and how Luster Pro Light compares to other whitening methods.

This whole process is beyond easy. So easy it’s going to make you scream in excitement! There are only THREE STEPS! Three! You can repeat as often as you like – until you get the results you want. Seriously – that’s it!

You can whiten your teeth up MUCH faster than with those pesky strips – and you can control how white you want them! You can whiten away – until you’re happy (and it won’t take that long – which is the glorious part!). Heck, they even send you with batteries!

Steps: (I hear you can also purchase these at Walgreens!)

  • 1 – Rinse mouth with mouth wash
  • 2 – Paint teeth with whitening gel
  • 3 – hold  the pre-timed whitening light up to your teeth

THAT’S IT! It’s literally that easy – and you won’t believe the results! I love how straight-forward it is. The instructions are easy – they give you everything you need for success – it’s almost foolproof!

GET YOURS HERE!
