Holiday Makeover

holiday makeover tips; UW Health Transformations Jeune Skin Care, Madison, WisconsinSkin care tips from the aestheticians at UW Health Transformations Jeune Skin Care:

 

The holiday season is here! Time to spruce up your home, have your hair cut and colored, refresh your skin with a professional skin treatment such as a mild chemical peel and wear a little extra makeup for all those special seasonal gatherings.

 

When it comes to clothing and makeup, we all have our own style. And when choosing cosmetics, they should complement us. Some of us may prefer to have someone compliment us on our look when we walk into a room instead of our makeup entering the room before we do (similar to someone wearing too much perfume). Some women prefer a more natural, subtle look while others like a bright, bold and dramatic look to their makeup. It's all a personal choice.

 

Eyelashes Looking Thin and Sparse?

 

For the holidays, try a set of professionally-applied eyelash extensions. Don't want the maintenance or expense? Then pick up a set of temporary glue-on lashes from the beauty aisle of your favorite store. Just a few individual strands placed at the outer corners can have an eye-opening effect.

 

Better yet - treat yourself to Latisse for longer, fuller lashes (available here at UW Health Transformations).

 

Keep Fine Lines at Bay

 

Undoubtedly, you have heard the expression that our eyes are the window to the soul. Sometimes those peepers look tired, possibly with fine lines becoming more apparent. SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel to the rescue! This lightweight, super absorbent, clear gel is loaded with hydrating and plumping hyaluronic acid and vitamin B, aiding in moisturizing and nourishing the skin while helping to keep those fine lines at bay. Invest in yourself - stop by Transformations today and purchase a bottle. 

 

Don't Forget Your Brows

 

Be sure to keep those eyebrows groomed! Whether you choose to have them waxed, sugared, threaded or tweezed (we pluck chickens; we tweeze our eyebrows!), doing so will help to visually open up your eyes, making them appear brighter. And your makeup will go on smoother, too.

 

Don't forget to add a little eyebrow color, as well. For the most natural look, choose a shade close to your hair color that complements your skin tone. Most people would agree that dark eyebrows and light blonde hair is not a good look.

 

A good brow pencil or brow gel can help fill in those areas that might be a little sparse. UW Health Transformations offers Jane Iredale mineral cosmetics with several different eyebrow colored cosmetics to choose from. From natural looking foundation to lips with a pop of color, we've got you covered.

 

That Unhealthy Glow

 

Please say NO to the tanning bed for extra color - go for a spray tan or use a good self tanner instead. There are so many body bronzing creams and gels available. Even a little face bronzer mixed into your favorite body lotion can be enough to give your arms and legs a little extra shimmer and warm glow.

 

Before You Hit the Pillow

 

The skin is our largest organ. Our bodies are at rest and renewal during our beauty sleep. Be sure to cleanse your face at night to remove all that makeup and impurities and awake to fresh, nourished skin.
