Trilogy Rosehip Oil Does The Body Good

I love that I can use Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil on my face and body. Not only does it help my face giving me flawless skin but I can use on my scalp to help with hair growth, on my nails for thicker nails, on my lips when dry, on my body where I have dark spots, stretch marks, and any other body scaring. I wish this bottle would come in a larger size because I really use my Rosehip Oil for everything. Trilogy doesn’t  make these promises I do, I have seen a big difference when I use it, that Rosehip Oil is no joke. There is something magical about it. Don;t say I didn’t share this great find with you. Go pick up a few bottles at Whole’s Food.

Trilogy Natural Skincare Launch Party In New York


I  was honored to have been invited to attend the launch party for Trilogy Natural Skincare line based out of New Zealand’s. The party was held in a nice loft in Chelsea, NY. I’ve never heard of this skincare line before attending so I was elated to check out the products.Trilogy is a certified natural skincare company founded by Catherine Groot and Sarah Gibbs in 2002. Trilogy prides itself on creating simple and unique blends of the purest oils and botanical extracts. It’s sold at nationwide Whole Foods stores.

I luv skin care products especially high performance natural products. Being that I have lupus I have to be careful with what I put on my skin. I learned something new like, rosehip is a plant that is used in many items like tea, food, drinks, and even wine. It’s high in vitamin C and the extracts also helps to reduce arthritis pain. So I look forward to lathering my skin all in it every day to help bring relief to my swollen joints.

Skin Care: Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate

I was very ecstatic when I received a complimentary bottle of Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate. Last week I met a rep from Shiseido who shared with me information about their new state of the art product. I walked away with a great tip about the product. First, it’s not a serum and it will enhance your naturally beautiful skin back to to its youthfulness. What a great treat for any woman who love luxe beauty products that bring radiance to their complexion. In one week I was told you will see your skin glowing and in four weeks you will see the skin firming and improving. The product can be used with your other skin regimen to boost their benefit. 

Just apply a pea sized drop 2 times a day after cleansing and before serum and watch the power of Ultimune enhance your skin. Starting tonight I’ll be treating my face back to it’s greatest beauty potential.

After getting him ready I packed up my hair & makeup kit, then I was brought over to The Sundance House HP where the rest of his press junkets would take place. One of the Entertainment Correspondent was CNN Host Nischelle Turner who I have actually done makeup on in the past. I was so excited to see her and actually so proud of her. We were able to give each other luv for only a few minutes. Such a supported person she shared with Mr. Redford how we met and that I was a great makeup artist. How sweet.

Wake Up Call for Puffy Eyes on Wedding Day

words by Connecticut Celebrity Makeup Artist Bridal Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis

Here’s a little wake you upper before you walk down the aisle. After an all night party fest and before you become the new Mr. and Mrs., you will need something to calm down the puffiness. Garnier & L’OREAL Paris both came out with a fun little gadget that is geared towards under-eye puffiness and dark circles.

I have used both items on my clients for different events and I can say the cold ball feels really good on the skin and has actually calmed down the puffiness right away. I can’t speak for the fast results of the dark circles. Both items would need to at least be used for about 4 weeks day and night to start seeing any results.
Because your worth it, you should definitely carry this little item with you for one last touch up before you stroll down that aisle.

Garnier Anti-Puff Eye Roller

Roll away under-eye puffiness and dark circles for brighter, more radiant eyes.?While you sleep circulation slows down and causes fluid to collect in your lower eye area. Dark circles and puffiness appear. Skin Renew anti-puff eye roller is right for you if you gently want to stimulate micro-circulation around skin’s delicate eye area to decongest excess fluid for diminished dark circles and puffiness. Gently roll Skin Renew anti-puff eye roller under the eye from the inner corner to the outer corner, one to two times. Apply Skin Renew anti-puff eye roller as your daily care, morning and night. Clinically tested and reviewed by dermatologists and nutritionists. Instantly: eyes look renewed and refreshed.

Men’s Expert Hydra-Energetic Ice Colds Eye Roller

For men who don’t want the world to know they were up late. Men’s Expert Hydra-Energetic Ice Colds Eye Roller is a refreshing wake-up call that dissolves signs of fatigue like dark under eyes circles and puffiness. Lightweight serum absorbs quickly and the hands-free application is fast and easy. Men’s Expert Ice Cold Eye Roller is made with Vitamin C and Caffeine to help reduce the look of dark circles and puffiness.
