Crazy 4 Curls

I love lashes.  Linda loves hair.. together we ROCK CURLS!

EYELASHES

If you are not into lash extensions creating gorgeous natural curls.. Or maybe you have great natural lashes.. You NEED a Lash Curler.  This is the ONLY one you will ever need!

I have used this for years!  I have one at home and one in my makeup kit and they have each lasted me almost 15 years! (great beauty investment)

1.  Start at the base of your eye with curler.. fit into eye pocket and gently pulse curler a few times.

2.  Continue to open and close curler and walk up lash – gently squeezing all the way up to increase curl.

3.  Straighter lashes can get a great lift by focusing curl just at the base of the lash.

4.  Change the silicone pad when curler starts cutting into pad and loosing bounce.

5.  Never use curler on lashes with mascara applied.  You can break your lashes.

HAIR

imagesCurly hair needs extra TLC to tame the curls.  Everyone’s curls are different.. that is why sometimes it is frustrating to try and figure out what’s best for your hair.  This is where we come in.. meet OUIDAD.

B is for Balance

I have struggled with BALANCE my entire life.

As a student studying dance.  As a choreographer/professional dancer.  As a business owner.  As a beauty artist.  Is there such a place as “perfect balance“?

“Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance & order and rhythm & harmony.”  (Thomas Merton)

I believe unbalance is a common occurrence.  I believe it does not happen overnight.  I believe we all lead lopsided lives.  I believe it is a life long journey to figure it out.  What works for one person may not work for any other.  What do we do?

Do we ever reach the place where the see-saw is STUCK in perfect balance (that would be no fun)? Or in the yoga pose “tree” where we can’t come out of the pose due to our perfect balance (I’ve only done that maybe twice).

In Beauty, did you know a more balanced face appears more beautiful to the eye.  All beauty treatments and m/u applications are to help balance the skin/face.  In health and body, the more in balance our minds and bodies are, the better we feel.

I believe it is the journey of all the lessons that the imbalances give us that makes life more beautiful.

I believe it’s all about flexibility & patience.  Bend with changes and try to stay positive and upright..  all we have to do is strive for balance.   I believe it’s the process that creates the beautiful dance.

This year, BALANCE will mean not adding too much to my plate and saying
“NO, but thank you” more often!  Here’s to trying & a few cushioned falls!

What is your “B” word?  (this is what inspired mine.. Jan 2014)
