Growing Beauty Trends

Beauty trends come and go, but some stand the test of time and become beauty staples for the average female. Here are some trends you may or may not know about, only time will tell if they stick around!


Charcoal Teeth Whiteners

Having a megawatt smile seems to be a standard beauty practice these days, but it can get pricey!

There are more and more options becoming available over the counter. One recent unique beauty trend is to use charcoal teeth whiteners to whiten your smile. Yes, it sounds crazy to put a black substance on your teeth to whiten them, but it does remove staining. There are powders and pastes available. Charcoal will help remove stains, but won’t actually lighten your natural color—that should be done with whitening agents. Always check with your dentist before using anything on your teeth, as you don’t want to weaken enamel.


Tattoo Eyebrow Pens

Full eyebrows has been a growing trend the past few years.

Not everyone is blessed with naturally full eyebrows. There are many cosmetic options (powders, pencils, gels) and there is also permanent makeup or microblading to create the illusion of fuller brows. These are all great options! Something new on the horizon are tattoo eyebrow pens. Some are felt tip markers that tint the skin and existing brows and they last for several days and are waterproof! Some have comb tips that create a microblade effect! This can give you the convenience of not having to do your eyebrow makeup every day! Just practice and keep a waterproof makeup remover handy, in case you make a mistake!


SNS Nail Dipping Powder

Women have discovered gel nails in the recent years for the strength, durability, and long lasting effect of this beautiful manicure!

A NEW product on the horizon are SNS dipping powders! They are odorless, don’t need UV light to set, and are a HEALTHIER option with more colors available for your nails than the classic gel nail products! You will get the same long-lasting effect, the only down side is it is a very time- consuming process.


Organic Airbrush Tanning

We all love the healthy glow of a tan, but at what cost?

The sun damages the skin, causing skin cancer and premature aging. Sun beds are even worse! A very safe alternative option is sunless tanning. I have recently added organic airbrush tanning to my services. What I love about airbrush tanning is the ability to create a flawless tan that lasts anywhere form 5-12 days, depending on how well you care for it ( using paraben free cleanser and moisturizer). The technology today in sunless tanning is AMAZING! Products are infused with vitamins, leaving the skin feeling wonderful with a beautiful glow! No orange glow here!

Dry Shampoo & Volumizing Powders

With our busy lifestyles today and our active social media lives it’s hard to get in a daily shampoo, yet we need to look great!

I love products that can extend our good hair days! I love Keratin Volumizing Dry Shampoo Lift Powder! This powder lifts the hair at its root and lifts grease and grime from the scalp for a cleaner, more voluminous head of hair on days that we are just too busy! What’s not to love about that?
