WHY LA BELLA DONNA?

Zero Toxins  |  Confidence without Compromise

Not all minerals are created equal. Conventional makeup and mineral lines include fillers such as talc and dyes that pull the moisture OUT of your skin, leaving the skin feeling tight and caky. 

Other mineral lines also contain nano-particles, which leach into the bloodstream - in which you both loose your coverage and put your health at risk.   

80% of AGING is from UV rays. 
Makeup should be an extension of skin care and provide every day UV protection.  Four ingredients that enhance your skin and health with
an SPF 50 - on the daily.

SPF: Sunscreen Basics + Strategies

As the summer gets on it's way, let's make sure our SPF facts are up to snuff.

GettyImages-466717057.jpg

Why sunscreen daily?
Let me count the ways! Starting with the fact that 90% of visible signs of aging are caused by the sun. We are exposed to the sun daily (including UVA rays you might not notice) and your body counts sun exposure cumulatively. We may get wiser over the years, but we also collect more sun-time. And the damage shows up many, many years later.

Chemical Sunscreen
Containing ingredients like avobenzone, homosalate, octinoxate and others, chemical sunscreens absorb the sun’s rays, transform them into heat, which is then released from your skin. ‘Chemical’ sounds like a bad word, but it’s not here – it just describes how it functions. Chemical sunscreens take about 20 minutes to activate after application, so lotion up before heading out.

s7-1292773_lifestyle.png

Physical Sunscreen
Physical sunscreens are ones with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide and work like a mirror, deflecting the sun’s rays from your skin. They can be less likely to clog pores, cause less allergy issues, and are ideal for everyday use, especially on your face. And they’ve come a long way from the white-nose days, so don’t worry about that. Protection is instant once applied.

UVA vs. UVB Rays
The A and B letters are scientific, but all you have to remember is A for Aging and B for Burning. UVB rays cause familiar results – sunburns.  UVA rays do quieter damage, causing wrinkles, skin cancer, and visible signs of aging. UVA rays come through clouds and windows, which is why we preach daily sunscreen.

Broad Spectrum
Sunscreen labeled ‘Broad Spectrum’ protects against both UVA and UVB rays. If it’s not labeled as such, chances are it’s only covering UVB rays (think: your less expensive body sunscreens you’ll find at the drug store). You’re best off with Broad Spectrum to make sure you’re covered, especially when it comes to your face.

The SPF Numbers
Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is a standard laboratory measurement of a sunscreen’s ability to prevent UVB damage to our skin. (Important distinction, it doesn’t measure the impact of those aging UVA rays.) If it normally takes you ten minutes to burn, generously-applied SPF 30 would keep you from burning for 300 minutes, or about five hours. (Usual Time To Burn x SPF = Protection Time). Our take? Math is not fun at the beach, so do yourself a favor and just re-apply often and liberally.

How much sunscreen?
Conventional wisdom says a ‘shot glass’ worth over your entire body, although I suggest a bit more.  All depends on height and weight.   Apply more frequently if you’re sweating or in and out of the water.

Over or used as makeup?
I'm a big fan of  straight up sunscreen as a foundation with SPF to ensure coverage.  Our clients love our  Tinted UV Protect 35 SPF facial lotion that is incredibly light and lightly tinted to blend into most skin types (haven't found anyone yet that it has not).  The other great option is to dust with our La Bella Donna Minerals to assure protection at a 25 SPF and  non-nano, so that you do not loose your makeup (and coverage) through your pores throughout the day. 

When was this stuff invented?
Want to sound smart at your summer barbecue? The first major commercial sunscreen was sold in 1936, by the founder of L’Oreal. Ten years later, it improved dramatically for soldiers in World War II. “SPF” as a standard was adopted in 1974. And before all that, ancient cultures used olive oil, rice extract, zinc oxide, and other compounds for thousands of years.

Making a Statement

 Jager & Bianca Studio 54

Jager & Bianca Studio 54

Hello beautiful!   We're bringing a little makeup inspiration as we officially move out of a long-standing trend of nudes, golds and makeup-LESS face. 

We all know that makeup can warp us back to a time in history. I had to laugh when putting this archive together with our incredible skin expert, TAYLOR. Taylor was teenage-ing in the 90's and loves these looks as it reminds her of the 90's grunge look.  While I squirm a bit when I think of Kirt Cobain, my reaction is lifted as I attribute these rich makeup tones back to the 70's when the disco ball was well and running at Studio 54.   Want to really get into it? I found two tutorials to re-create the 90's grunge or a night at the 70's disco. 

Ok - back to 2016.  Stay on trend with these winter makeup statements of bolder hues that pop out any lip, cheek and eye shape.    

Step outside the box (more like your makeup bag) and gather a few spellbinding and glam makeup effects with these enchanting palettes in tones to suit every mood.



QUICK TIPS - LET'S GET MADE UP

Screen Shot 2016-11-27 at 9.45.35 AM.png


Deep dark lips

Think deep ruby reds, sinfully dark violets, dare I say the darkest of sapphire blue? The color of your lips can change an entire look.

If you haven’t tried a dark lip, get sassy or classy with a standard berry base and opting to apply a darker shade over top – this will blur the darkness to a medium shade. Ease into it - you may learn to love it.

The Blush Taxonomy

We’ve come a long way from the toxic mercury, synthetics-based formulas of the past century and methods of grandma’s time. Between stains, creams, and powder - choosing the best color can be in and of itself confusing.  Get the quick rundown.

Where to put it!
To perfect your rouge, gently sweep color above the apple of your cheekbone and brush outwards towards your temple (over extending blush past the cheek bone can result in a baby doll look).

Perfecting your hugh:  For winter tones, enhance your skin hughs of a warmer blushed cheek. Think orange, brown undertones or a subtle mauves.  

Peach can be especially flattering for complexions with yellow undertones, while pink works best for those with pink undertones.

Smudgy Liner

Love up on some drama with your day or night look with black liner on your lower lash line. Apply black eye pencil to the thickness and darkness of your liking. Use a q tip or smudge brush in a back and forth motion to pull apart the sharp line for a faded look.

We look forward to helping GLAM you UP as you mix and match the hottest trends and the best colors and tones personalized just for you.  xo

How to Wear the Color of the Year: Orchid! (hair and makeup tips inside)

unnamed-5

Move over Barney, there's a new purple in town!

The Pantone Color of the Year is called “Radiant Orchid”—a powerful purple tone that lives somewhere between cold, blue tones and warm, red nuances.  Somewhat Fucia but heartier than lavender; less alarming than grape; and too gutsy to be barbie pink.

Start early because you're about to see it everywhere…in fashion, cosmetics, hair color, home décor, even wedding palettes.

Purple is growing on me, and I can name a few clients that obsessively ADORE!  Moderation is a good thing.  I wouldn’t buy it in a car, but I could be persuaded to  a great spring clutch or a ballet flat, or scarf.

Hair Color? Well, if you ask.  The "Best Of" this high-maintenance shade:

Radiant Orchid clothing looks best on a deep redhead; a dark, cool brunette; or a very pale, icy-blonde.   Those that want to color their hair purple— well, that's not for the faint at heart.

More than anything, you will see these tones ALL OVER the cosmetics counters. This is  the best, easiest way to let some of this radiance into your life.

Here’s our top La Bella Mineral Makeup choices to check out at Kasia:

Duo-Lip Crayons  Duo_Lip_Crayon_Main The natural antioxidants duo-ended crayons are richly pigmented and designed to line, define and enhance your pout.  A high level of precision, as well as smoothcoverage.  The soft, rich colour pay-off makes this formulation a favorite used among makeup artists.

 VentiAniVenti Ann Eye Quad “Star” is the lightest shade of sparkle which can be used as a highlighter below the brow; in the inner creases of the eye and on the lid. Use the depth of “Twilight””in the crease and in the outer corners of the eye. “Night””is a perfect splash of black to create any smoky eye. Use it wet for a liquid eye- liner. A light dusting of “Sweet Dawn””on the cheeks which can also be used as a pop of colour on the eyes.

Mineral Light Lip Colour Highest level of mineral pigment for color on the market, followed by Ceramide 2, which is designed to keep lips smooth and protected from the sun’s damaging UV pinksandrays.  Add a little vitamin C and enjoy the finish of rich, creamy with a satiny texture and lush shine.

 

 

Get Natural Coverage:   Contains no petrolatum, free of preservatives,  dyes or lanolin derivatives.  Dermatologically approved.

I am going to ease in with a few orchid splashes throughout my home and I just may try some plum-up nail polish on my toes as sandal season closes in. Ughhhhh.....Sounds good right about now, doesn’t it?

 

Contact the Kasia Team today to PLAY with new colors of inspiration for 2014. Here are few favorite captured  PINS!   Until next time....xo

Your Guide to a Sexy Eye. Timeless Look with Au-Naturale Liquid Eyeliner

eye liner guide

Fall is all about a rich - dramatic eye....

La Bella Donna's NEW Liquid Eyeliner will amaze you with its color, lasting power, and smudge proof POW!

Buyer Beware! Synthetics and plasticizers such as acrylic copolymer and PVP (polyvinyl pyrrolidone polymer) are commonly found in liquid eyeliners. They are used mainly as the binding agent/film former in liquid eyeliner to glue pigments and fillers together so the eyeliner stays on your eyes.

The discovered concern with synthetic plastics is that they are derived from petrochemicals.    Synthetic dyes, glycol, alcohol and chemical preservatives are also used in high concentrations of conventional liquid eyeliner formulations.
