Hey there Gorgeous!
Are you ready for Labor Day weekend?
There are still a few days left to plan your beauty and the best tip I can give you is sunscreen, bronzer and a lip/cheek stain will go along way in poolside to bbq to oceanside stargazing!
Josie Maran makes a lip/cheek stain marker and I’m wearing ChaCha which is a great pink tone. She makes luxury cosmetics with a conscience. Find out more about her line, plus how to get it: http://www.josiemarancosmetics.com/

Now is the right time to start working out and taking care of your body, health and heart! I love these workout DVD’s from The Bar Method and Insanity by Beachbody.
You have to order them to get them so put your order in before you leave for holiday and they will be waiting for you when you get back!

I Tried a One-Day Detox -- Would You?

This is a TotalBeauty.com diet article

Our bodies are exposed to toxins every day thanks to the polluted air we breathe, the hormone-injected foods we eat, and even the chemical-filled products we slather on our bodies. So it’s logical that we should periodically cleanse our bodies from the inside out. But the question is: Which detox diet is right for you? We followed one editor as she tried a one-day plan. Read about her experience here.

Pound the pavement with the right base. Begin your beauty regime with a primer that fills in fine lines and pores for a flawless finish! Give Smashbox’s Photo Finish Foundation Primer a try. It helps to inhibit the destruction of collagen so you can look flawless for years to come at your corner office.

Sleepless night from nerves? Cover up those under-eye bags, puffiness, or any other perfections with Tarte’s Dark Circle Defense. The finely milled light refracting minerals actually brighten skin to help camouflage dark circles, puffiness, refness, fine lines and wrinkles. And there’s 56% reduction in eye puffiness after 4 weeks–but we know you’ll nail that interview the first go-round!

Sparkle and glitter aren’t office appropriate. Opt for a matte shadow in a natural hue on the lids. We love Revlon’s ColorStay 12 Hour Eye Shadow in In The Buff. Better yet, go for a thin line of smudged pencil eyeliner. Sue Devitt’s Eye Intensifier Pencil is great. Nylon and a number of other ingredients lock in moisture and expand and contract with facial movements without creasing to create a long-lasting, luminious eye.

Stop fussing with and reapplying your makeup! Ditch the trips to the ladies’ and mist on a product that holds concealer, foundation and eyeshadow in place for up to 16 hours. Skindinavia Makeup Finishes creates a flawless look so there’s less touch ups throughout the day. Since it resists heat and humidity, the mist is also great for when that mid-interview perspiration occurs!

OTHER TIPS:

•For your face, you probably won’t need much more than concealer and loose powder. If you have blemishes or uneven skin tone, by all means, use a foundation! But if you don’t need much coverage, just skip it.
•Wear lipstick, not lip gloss. Gloss is too shiny and youthful for a formal occasion like an interview.
•Well-groomed brows show that you pay attention to details. Tweeze any stray hairs, and if you have brow gel, use it to set your brows in place. (A tiny bit of hair gel, diluted with water, can do the same thing.)
•Applying a little bit of blush makes everyone look healthier. Use this rather than bronzer for a natural-looking, healthy glow.
•Don’t wear any perfume. “Oh, but I love my signature scent,” you might be saying. Yes, and it probably smells lovely, but what if your interviewer has an allergy? Skip it.
•Unless you have naturally clean, even, hangnail-free nails, get a manicure. It doesn’t matter whether your nails are long or short, but they should be neatly filed. Don’t opt for a French manicure — many find it dated.
