Three awesome products from Nature’s Gate!

I love Nature’s Gate. I love how pure and simple they are. No fuss, no chemical’s, no fragrance…. just pure, simple, natural ingredients. As I age, I’m finding my skin really loving the natural, simple products.

These three products are what I’m using right now. I start with the Lemon Verbena Cleansing Gel, and then move onto the Rice Bran Moisturizer. Before bed, I apply the Grape Seed Eye Treatment, and I’m just loving the results. You don’t have to pay a lot for these products, and you get amazing results! Here is a bit more info on these three products! More »

Beyonce wears fake eyelashes made out of WHAT?

Makeup artist and facialist Wei Lang recently opened up to NY Mag’s The Cut, that she’s been styling Beyonce’s makeup since early 2012. When she was asked what are some of Beyonce’s beauty must-have’s, Lang replied:

She really does like liners, and she asks for that a lot, and lashes. And I always use mink lashes on her. They look amazing. I use strips by Velour called “Are Those Real?” and I got her really into it, so she buys them by the ton.

Fur lashes?? Really? (PETA’S gonna love that!)

Beyonce’s favorite lashes are 100 percent authentic mink fur. The Toronto based company that makes the lashes brushes the hair from live animals, then sterilizes them to ensure they are hypo-allergenic. At a whopping $59.99 a pair, it’s a very expensive habit!

They’re on sale now for $29.99…. so if you’re interested, go grab a pair!
