Divergent Los Angeles premiere with Laura Mercier on Maggie Q

Happy Monday Ya'll!
Phew. It's been a whirlwind week. I'm busy recuperating a bit from all of the road trippin' travel. While I rest, please enjoy this update on how to get the Divergent premiere look with Laura Mercier.


Maggie Q
Los Angeles Premiere of “Divergent”
March 18, 2014
Look by Mai Quynh for Laura Mercier

Makeup artist Mai Quynh created a “soft and pretty” makeup look for actress Maggie Q that allowed her “natural beauty to stand out.” Quynh focused on using a dusty rose and soft plum palette to complement the actress’ dress and hair. The final look was “fresh and polished.”

FACE: Natural Complexion Paired with Rosy Pinks  
·        Quynh first prepped Maggie’s skin by applying RéVive Sensitif Renewal Cream, ($215) to the entire face, and then followed with Laura Mercier Foundation Primer, ($33)
·        Next, she used a damp BeautyBlender sponge to apply Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide Foundation, ($46, NEW September 2014). She stated, “The foundation leaves the skin velvety and touchable. The matte finish is perfect so I don't need to use too much powder.”
·        She then dotted Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer in SC-5, ($33) underneath her eyes and around her nose.
·        Quynh gently brushed on Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder in Golden Suntan, ($38) to Maggie’s T-zone using the Laura Mercier Powder Brush, ($52).
·        Lastly, she layered Tarte Mineral Powder Bronzer in Park Ave Princess to her forehead, cheeks and chin. To finish the face, she applied Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Violet Orchid, ($25) to the apples of the actress’ cheeks.
EYES: Soft Plums and Browns
·        For her eyes, Quynh first applied Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Amethyst, ($26) onto the lids, from the lash line to the crease.
·        Next, she mixed together Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colour in Kir Royal, ($23) and Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Coffee Ground, ($23) and smudged both colors close to the lash line and blended it upwards, fading it into her crease. She then lightly smudged the same two shadows along Maggie’s lower lash line for added definition.
·        Finally, she applied two coats of Lancome Definicils Mascara in Black to her top and bottom lashes.
Lips: Light Pink Pout  
·        Quynh kept lips simple and aligned with the “dusty rose” palette by applying Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Rosewood, ($27).

Celebrate International Women's Day with Sleepora

Hello Gorgeous,
I'm on the road, but, while I am away, enjoy this information from Sleepora in honor of International Women's Day!
As you probably know today is International Women’s Day.
It is obviously a very worthwhile global event and very much worth supporting.
Women are more likely to suffer from than insomnia than males (see link below for reasons why - plus how this can be overcome). Even though both Co-Creators of Sleepora are men, the bulk of our business is based on the sale of Sleepora to women. With this in mind we specifically designed and incorporated elements into Sleepora with women in mind (although obviously Sleepora can be and is used by men as well).
Some of the factors which contribute to women suffering more from insomnia than men are hormonal such as a woman’s menstrual cycle, pregnancy or the menopause ……..although obviously not all at the same time.

This link below illustrates how Sleepora specifically covers these areas to help women sleep better. There are some insights in here which you may find useful.

When you put it into context that at any one time 30%-50% of the worlds population have sleep problems and of those the majority are women this directly impacts women’s lives globally.

In support of IWD this weekend 8th and 9th March 2014 we will be having a 75% discount on Sleepora.
Please pass this message onto any women that you know who may have sleep issues .
Also have a look at the IWD site as there may be some events you may find of interest.
