It surely is amazingly hot out there and I have just landed a great face cream to help me look sheerly amazing – flawless and no discoloration please, especially for high ‘melaninified’ skins of Olive to Dark brown tones! Ole Henriksen’s Sheer Transformation available at Sephora (click here) is natural and so far is working great. This cream is smooth, light, and fast absorbant! I will keep posting on the transformation my skin is going through. But I have to say, keep bringing out great products Ole Henriksen, there is a reason why Sephora beauty advisors keep recommending you everytime I walk in there! O’le to you!!
Also to help your skin stay even as your skin, freckles, unwanted bumps are exposed to harsher summer time rays, try Ole Henriksen’s other natural products in serums like Enlighten Me or Roll-on Blemish Attack also available at Sephora online and in store.
A new beauty item to try is the YSL ‘Rouge Pur Couture’. This Yves Saint Lauren item is a long wear and hydrating lipstick. Available at www.sephora.com or Sephora stores. It leaves a noticeable deep color and satin look. Great for evenings.
My Color Picks: Rouge Flamme, Le Rouge, and Noir Laque
Writing about beauty is always fun, but the best is when you stumble upon stories of change and transformation even through something most people see as an area fueled by vanity. Photography by Tiana Markova at “Duckrabbit — we produce photofilms”, showing images of poor young women on the streets of Rio, Brazil, finding a way out of poverty, abuse, and hopelessness through the Salão Escola de Beleza Afro (School of Afro Salon Beauty). The goal of this school: “To provide these women with the opportunity to find their self-worth again and use beauty as means of independence instead of bondage to poverty and abuse”. A great initiative and the strong photography by Markova below, speaks of it!
