The weather was horrible all day in Fairfield County but that didn’t stop the ladies in Greenwich, CT for coming to Warren Tricomi Salon to get their beauty needs taken care of like hair, makeup & nails. On a rainy day like today I love just doing makeup creating different makeup looks. I had a few good canvas to have fun with each getting a different makeup look.
With Rachael before & after look I removed everything she had on. She wanted me to keep the same colors so I did just that. I refreshed her skin by prepping her skin with Caudalie first then I applied makeup to a now more radiant, brighter and hydrated skin. The makeup brands that I used on Rachael were from Kevyn Aucoin, Stila Cosmetics, and Urban Decay.
When Carmen Wild, brand rep for Caudalie gifted me with this gorgeous bottle of Beauty Elixir, I DIE! The founder of Caudalie, Mathilde Thomas partnered with designer Jason Wu to create this limited edition bottle. The bottle embodies modern femininity. It’s dressed in a meticulous, detailed lace from Jason Wu 2016 spring/summer collection topped with a light gold hardware that mimic the hardware in Jason’s accessories.
Why, is this my favorite setting spray ?First, it’s natural, versatile mist that can be applied morning and evening as a pore tightening toner after cleansing. I love to spray my makeup brushes with it before using them on each of my clients. During a makeup application I use it before foundation and powder to set the makeup. It’s great to travel with to get an instant burst of radiance. When I have sinuses & congestion challenges it’s a treat when I spray the beauty elixir on my face. It helps to open me up.
The recipe for this Beauty Elixir mist formula remains the same. Benzoin to soothe the skin, myrrh to tone, essential oils of rosemary to energize and lemon balm and peppermint to stimulate, along with orange blossom to soften, rose for radiance and, of course, moisturizing and radiance-enhancing grape pulp extract, Caudalie’s flagship ingredient.
