If you are as challenged as we are in finding the ‘perfect’ foundation shade, look no more! Sephora & Pantone Color IQ iPad app for choosing and buying foundation is now available at Sephora’s Times Square and Powell Street, San Francisco. It’s only a matter of time before all of the Sephora stores carry the app to help you select the correct foundation color. First, a salesperson will hold a spectrocolorimeter to your face (think tiny camera). The meter snaps 27 photos of your skin and spits out a number (between 1-110 on the Pantone color chart) based on the depth of the skin’s color and the warmth or coolness of its undertones. Then, the app searches all the foundation shades sold at Sephora to find the best match for your complexion! Remember: Spectrocolorimeter + Sephora + Pantone Color IQ iPad App = your perfect foundation shade.

Clean your makeup bag every month! A bag with a nylon or plastic liner is easier to clean that a cotton bag. Make sure your caps are screwed on tightly and lids are closed properly. This will eliminate foundation leaking and powders crumbling in the bag. Pencils and small brushes should be kept in separate snack-size Ziploc bags. To clean, empty everything out, wipe down liner and products and your makeup bag will be good to go for another month.
In an effort to help you accomplish your New Year’s resolutions we suggest the following approach. Only select 2-3 resolutions and no more than that! Make sure your resolutions are realistic and can be accomplished within a reasonable time period. 39% of those who make New Year’s resolutions forget about it in the first week!
Since weight loss is a popular resolution we propose the following example: You want to lose 50 pounds within the next year. We think waiting one year to finally say “I did it” is too long to wait! We suggest breaking the 50 pounds down into weeks and say “I’m going to lose one pound per week (remember, one pound a week is a healthy way to reduce and will definitely help you keep the weight off in the future). At the end of each week, you can say “I did it” and have the last two weeks of the year to decide on the next New Year’s resolutions. We find this approach will keep you motivated and enthusiastic about your weight loss resolution. A word of caution about losing weight; always eat healthy and get plenty of exercise. Remember that fad diets do not work!
Argan Oil contains a high concentration of Vitamin E and Carotenes (Vitamin A) which are two vital components that make up healthy skin. Its vitamin rich content can produce instantly noticeable effects when applied topically to the skin. Argan Oil is typically found in high-end cosmetic products like moisturizers, shampoos (for dry, damaged or brittle hair) and sunscreens.
The texture is light and less greasy but still moisturizing so even if you have oily skin, it’s great to use. In fact, it contains antibacterial plant sterols that help curb acne.
Argan Oil is derived from the Argan tree only found in Morocco. The oil is obtained by pressing the tiny seeds from the Argan fruit (nut). Its gets its ‘liquid gold’ name because it has the appearance of a golden liquid at room temperature!
When buying Argan Oil, make sure it is 100% pure with no extra preservatives. We really like the Shea Terra 100% Pure Moroccan Argan Oil for $24.00.
‘Sides’ are pages from a movie or TV script that have been excerpted for the purpose of auditions. The TV and film prescreens usually involve a cold reading from “sides”. If the “sides’ are given to you cold, ask for a few minutes to analyze the script before you read for the casting director.
The Hollywood Sign is the most famous sign in the world and is one of the most photographed icons in the world. The Sign has appeared in countless motion pictures and television productions as well as in photos taken by millions of tourists and residents. It stretches four stories high and 450 feet long across the top of Mt. Lee in the Hollywood Hills. The original sign, erected in 1923, had 4,000 studded light bulbs and was only expected to last only 18 months. Now, 89 years later and after several refurbishing acts, the sign continues to reign as the symbol of Hollywood!
