Alexis’s Journey into the World of Natural Health & Beauty–Entry #3

Capers-Alexis_AFTERBy Alexis Capers – Alexis Capers is our Enhanced Beauty Salon and Enhanced Beauty Area manager. Join her every other Wednesday for a blog about her journey into natural health & beauty products.

I was recently listening to an interview about lingerie and how most men feel we don’t need to have all pretty and matchy undergarments for them to consider us attractive or sexy. The woman being interviewed said, “Hey buddy, it’s not for you. It’s for me!” I know how she feels.

Having something special underneath is empowering—like our secret Wonder Woman suit!

However, what is left on the outside can be harder to dress. Now don’t get me wrong, you don’t need tons of products nor do you need to be all made up to be beautiful. I just happen to be a product-loving Glamour Diva! To feed my Diva for make-up, I took a trip to the Jane Iredale headquarters in Massachusetts to see how they find their inspiration. What I found there amazed me!

I was treated to an inside look at how Jane is distributed and sold. But, what I was largely anticipating was my Jane make-over with expert make-up artist Sabrina Fortier. I was led into a quaint, crisp room with all the cosmetics a girl could pine for! And on the wall, hung a poster detailing how to camouflage certain facial imperfections. This poster was a true testament to empowerment! The before and after of these women show how using a little something on the outside can bring about a state of mind on the inside that is better than any silky secret underneath!

I sat down (I arrived with NO make-up on mind you) and got ready for my transformation. Sabrina shared wonderful tips on how to utilize the different mineral products for maximum benefit no matter the type of coverage a client seeks. The result was sheer natural beauty! I was not all “made up” but lifted up. My eyes looked less puffy and dark. My skin glowed with warmth. My eyes sparkled! Best of all, the look lasted all day! It’s a long ride home from Massachusetts you know.

One of the most beneficial products I walked away with was the Magic Mitt facial cloth, an awesome make-up remover!!! This soft textured mitt removes all your make-up with only water! That’s right, H2O! To keep the Mitt clean, just wash with regular hand soap. Perfect for me as I often forget to wash my face at night!

So I encourage you to come in today and see what little secrets we can share with you to boost your confidence.

Products I’m falling for this week: D2O spray—amazing hydration that sets your cosmetics and is convenient to spray throughout the day. Eye Liner Jelly Jar—this creamy product goes on like a dream and stays put better than spanks! Black Ice Mascara—thickens and lengthens to give you fuller lashes that look realistic, not ridiculous. Magic Mitt facial cloth—great for teens too!


Brighten Up Your Lips for Spring, Naturally

By Alex Durkota

As winter ends and spring approaches, we all look for something new to brighten our days.

When it comes to makeup, you should transition from warm winter shades to bright spring shades. Lip shades are especially fun to switch up with the seasons.

Luckily, Jane Iredale has given her PureGloss lip gloss a new look, giving the everyday woman a little bit more for their lip gloss! Unlike most lip glosses, it provides moisture and protection to the lips. Also, PureGloss is long-lasting, so you’ll never have to apply another application nor worry about over-glossing your lips.

PureGloss plumps lips without chemicals. It contains only the highest quality natural ingredients used to provide staying power, moisture, and nourishment to the lips. There is no petroleum in any of Jane Iredale’s cosmetics. All PureGlosses are formulated in a base of organic vegetable oils.

The new PureGloss comes in 18 shades and provides variety for different looks and different styles so there’s something for everyone. Hope everyone enjoys their spring with new lips! Between now and April 30th, we have a special sale on all Jane Iredale cosmetics!!!

Because she loves to go in the sun, I used Latte Pure Pressed Base for that beautiful deep color and SPF-20 protection. Patricia’s skin was “beaming” after I applied the Sunbeam Bronzer. She was amazed that I used it as her eye shadow too! To bring out the green in Patricia’s beautiful hazel eyes, I used the Pinot Noir Liquid Eyeliner. To finish her amazing look, I used Fascination Lip Stain for an all-day pucker!

I had to create a sweet look for such a sweet lady. To give Lorraine a youthful glow, I applied the “rosy” color on her cheeks from the Go Blue Eye Steppes and I used the rest of the colors in the pallet to give her eyes some pop!  I used PureBrow Gel so that her brows would look nice with her beautiful new hair color! Finishing her look with a super-glam lip look, I used Mimosa Pure Gloss. Beautiful!

Make Over Success: Samantha

Samantha is a very busy mommy, so her new look needed to be simple and fresh. She has such beautiful eyes so I did a subtle smoky look using Supernova Shadow and a Black/Grey Pencil Liner. I created this look using a smudge brush–perfect every time. Because Samantha’s eyes were so dramatic, I applied a very nude lip color called Mania. This lip stain will last for hours and give her just the right touch of color!
