Silver lining (or black, or blue, or green, or….)

Silver lining (or black, or blue, or green, or….)

Based on all the great comments we're getting, it looks like many of us like to wear a bit of eye make up when we teach. Last week was all about mascara. This week we'll look at eyeliner- how to best wear it, and good liners that have staying power. I often get asked, "Should I wear eyeliner on the top or on the bottom?" My answer is: both. Having said that, care should be taken not to minimize the look of our eyes by lining the bottom completely back into the corner. (See side picture). A more natural, eye opening option, is to line the entire top of our eye, and the lower eye half -way to the middle of our iris. (See picture below). Black liner is of course the most dramatic, and least forgiving, color. Brown, bronze and gray are softer and more natural. A smudged pencil also gives a...

Over and Out (but not totally)

"Over and out....10-4....Roger that". We use this 'radio speak' around our house a lot. Weird, I know, but it makes for clear text messages :). No wonder it's used by truckers! "Over and out, but not totally" describes what's going on with me at Clarins and my Account...

We just had a lovely long weekend in Phoenix, AZ for my niece's wedding. I have a 'thing' about paying to check luggage . So, I carried on everything I needed for 6 days-rehearsal dinner and wedding day attire, plus jackets (it gets cold there when the sun goes down),...

Deep cleaning time?

Deep cleaning time?

While deep cleaning the carpets today, (overnight guests coming for Thanksgiving and a Yorkie that's untrainable....) I got to thinking about my Clarisonic experience. The correlation being deep cleaning- not dirty carpet and naughty dogs! Clarisonic skin care systems...

Window Framing

Eyebrows. They make us look younger, frame our eyes and we need them to make our facial anatomy look right. Guys- just a quick word and then you can b(r)ow out :). If you have exceedingly bushy, or wiry brows, you can easily groom them with a manicure scissors. My dad...

A bit too callused?

A bit too callused?

When dancing years (and years and years....) ago in college, we had only one efficient way to remove calluses from our feet. We would sit around the studio after practice and use a single razor blade to cut them off. Thinking about it now, I am grateful I didn't get a...

The Skinny on Skin

The Skinny on Skin

You know how it can be challenging as Indoor Cycling Instructors to convince those in the weight room that it's important to cardio train in addition to lifting? Sometimes it's the same way for me about skin care, sunscreen and convincing people of our skin's...

Minimal Minerals

Minimal Minerals

If you are anything like me, a little bit of help to look and feel your best when heading out to teach/ coach your class is welcome. But, when it comes to make up, I'd rather err on the side of too little than too much, not only in how it feels on my skin, but also in...

THERE ARE NO UGLY PEOPLE... JUST LAZY ONES (Chinese proverb) Hi and welcome to the very first 'PRO Style' post.  I'm so glad you're here!  As we start out together, I thought it might be helpful to do the 'what' and 'why' thing and then a little about me: So, 'what'...
