Selena’s look can be yours with John Frieda Frizz Ease

Posted on: August 19th, 2014

Teen Choice Awards 2014 - Arrivals

INSPIRATION: Selena’s very tailored Saint Laurent suit

GET THE LOOK: This look “weaves confident, youthful, sexy, a hint of bold, but still very sweet,” said celebrity stylist Lona Vigi

  • To start, Vigi misted Selena’s hair with an Evian atomizer in order to prep her hair and keep it in the cleanest condition.
  • Next, she applied a dime sized amount of the John Frieda Frizz Ease Original Six Effects Serum into her hands, and rubbed them together before going into Selena’s hair, starting at the roots and pulling all the way to the ends. “This serum is like a BB Cream for the hair,” said Vigi. “It covers so many vital bases that you end up using multiple products for, instead you can cut all of that out of the equation and just have this one master product.”
  • In the front, Vigi sprayed John Frieda Frizz Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray while the hair was still damp in order to keep all the little baby hairs around the frame of the face tamed down.
  • Then, while blowing drying on a medium heat with the Harry Josh Pro Tools Dryer, Vigi sprayed the hair continuously to ensure the hair stayed back into the ponytail.
  • Next Vigi clipped the hair up and took super small sections and went over them with a flat iron, getting as close to the scalp as possible.
  • Vigi created a center part and then gathered Selena’s hair by the nape of her neck to create the ponytail. Once it was secure, she patted John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch-Up Creme into the ponytail so that it looked extra strong and shiny. “We wanted the ponytail to be the accessory to her look,” said Vigi.
  • As a final touch, Lona secured the ponytail with a long, black ribbon.

Bodycology is Naughty and Nice

Posted on: August 19th, 2014

unnamed-15

Bodycology Naughty and Nice Sweet Seduction is one of my favorite mists and lotions for the summertime. The fresh petals and apple fragrance is so fruity and cool so it’s great for when the weather is humid and you want to feel refreshed. After I get out of the shower, I usually apply the lotion to my legs and arms and when I leave the house I will spray the mist on my neck. The cream really moisturizers my legs and if you love cocoa, shea, and jojoba butters, this is the lotion for you. The fragrance of the mist and body lotion last for quite a while, too. Another great thing is that these products are made in the USA! The mist and the lotion would make a great gift for a loved one, and they can be found at drugstores or Walmart and Target for only around $3 to $5.

Give Cleansing a Fruity Twist with Burts Bees Grapefruit Towelettes

Posted on: August 1st, 2014

220

I am a big fan of Burts Bees lip balm so I was excited when I got the pink grapefruit facial cleansing towelettes to try. Since I got them I use them every night before I shower and go to bed. They remove my eye makeup very easily and I have noticed that they also remove dirt and oil very well. I trust them and love using them on my face because they are 99.1% natural. These wipes are also very versatile because they can be used on normal to oily skin. The pink grapefruit scent is lovely and keeps your face smelling clean. There are 30 wipes in this package and they will never dry out because the package has a plastic case that closes to prevent them from drying out. I have been using these wipes every night, and my face hasn’t dried out. I would definitely recommend these and they can be bought at drugstores, ulta, and online at burtsbees.com for around 6 dollars.

Certain Dri AM is great for these hot summer days

Posted on: July 18th, 2014
Certain DRI

Certain DRI

 

Everyday Strength Certain Dri AM is great for these hot summer days. It’s an underarm antiperspirant/deodorant and it really helps with keeping you dry and odor free while you work out or even just laying in the sun. I love it because it has a “morning fresh” scent which is perfect, and is available in solid or roll-on. It is specially formulated to use in the morning because it delivers an all-day deodorant protection and as a companion for Certain Dri Clinical Strength Roll-On or Solid. Personally, I apply it right after I get out of the shower every morning to start the day off right. If you are the type of person that needs clinical strength protection, the full line of Certain Dri products included in the Certain Dri Protection System is also for you. For extra sweat protection also apply the Certain Dri Clinical Strength Anti-Perspirant Roll-On a couple times a week at night before going to bed to control any excess perspiration. Another thing I like about Certain Dri is that it goes on clear. I never have any smudges on myclothes. The first time I tried this, I was worried that it wouldn’t keep me dry all day. But, I went for a jog in the morning and I felt that this really controlled my perspiration. It left me sweat and odor free all day! This is a reliable product that can be found in supermarkets and drug stores nationwide. You can also find it online at www.certaindri.com for around $7 or $8

Seven Steps to a Flawless “No-Makeup” Selfie

Posted on: July 2nd, 2014

Love them or loathe them, selfies are sticking around this summer. Plus, the “no makeup” selfie trend continues to show up on our newsfeeds – including in posts from celebs like Selena Gomez, a client of our Simple Advisory Board makeup artist, Gita Bass. While our favorite famous faces might have good genes and a team of professionals to help them look flawless under any filter, we wanted to share a few tips on how to achieve a glowing “no-makeup” selfie on behalf of Simple Skincare and celebrity makeup artist Gita Bass.

Simple Skincare

Simple Skincare

GITA BASS ON TAKING A MAKEUP-FREE SELFIE:

1.       Good lighting is key! Go near a window or a soft diffuse light and stay away from overhead lighting, especially if it’s fluorescent!

2.       Always stick your jaw out a little like a turtle (trust me) – It will give you a defined jaw and prevents the dreaded double chin.

3.       If you need a flash, make sure to blot the t-zone to avoid looking greasy.

4.       When looking a little dark under the eyes, angle your face up and shoot from above – this will fill in the circles and give you great cheekbones.

 

IF YOU MUST WEAR MAKEUP, GITA RECOMMENDS:

5.       Keep it sneaky: a well applied tinted moisturizer or light foundation should be applied with a light hand, and blended with a damp beauty blender. Cellphone pics tend to bring out redness and imperfections, so a great concealer works wonders.

6.       For a rosy glow that looks natural, apply a bronzing powder where the sun naturally hits: cheekbones, forehead, nose and chin, and then layer a cream blush onto the apples of the cheeks. Blend well with your fingers by pressing the blush into your skin so there are no lines and it looks like your own flush.

7.       To make eyes pop, curl lashes and apply a very light coat of mascara. Make sure to brush through to eliminate any telltale clumps.

AND A FINAL WORD OF WISDOM:

A recent survey by Simple Skincare found that over a quarter (27%) of women in the top cities nationwide report that the longest they’ve gone without washing their face is at least two daysGlowing, healthy-looking skin should always be the first step in any selfie – whether wearing makeup or not. Start with a clean slate by using Simple Radiance Cleansing Wipes, which have no harsh chemicals, no artificial perfumes or dyes that can upset skin, and contain skin-loving ingredients and added vitamins.

Smooth and shiny hair with John Frieda Satin Finish Straightening Iron

Posted on: June 25th, 2014

John Frieda Satin Finish

After trying out several different brands of straightening irons, a friend of mine suggested trying John Frieda Satin Finish.  I fell in love!  I have long curly hair that easily frizz which makes my hair look dry, dull and lifeless.  Not a pretty site especially in the summer heat and humidity.   The John Frieda Satin Finish Straightening Iron transforms my unhealthy looking hair into beautiful, smooth, shiny and manageable hair.  This straightening iron has 1 1/2 inch extra long titanium ceramic coated straightening plates that heat up in 15 seconds.  Wow, no time to lose!  It has a swivel cord so it is comfortable and controllable to use.  The swivel cord also helps to avoid a tangled cord.  It has 11 high heat levels with digital temperature display.  The plates heat up to 455 degrees F.  My mom loves the auto shutoff feature so if I forget to shut the straightening iron, it will do it for me!

The Advanced Ionic technology helps keep moisture in your hair and the damage away from your hair.  The LCD temperature control delivers even heat through the plates which protect your hair, reduces the frizz and enhance shine.  Who knew a straightening iron could do all that!  It usually takes forever and I mean forever to straighten my curly, long, thick hair but using John Frieda Satin Finish with the 1 1/2″ plates, well it was straight in a snap!  My hair is straight, shiny and healthy looking after using John Frieda Satin Finish Straightening Iron!  This is a “hot” new hair tool to prevent the bad hair days!  Check it out at www.johnfrieda.com
