BEAUTY: NATURAL COSMETICS FINDS
My latest beauty discoveries came to me by surprise. In addition to running the MISSQA blog and store, I consult on and create fashion and beauty video and social media strategies for a major publishing house in New York. One of the magazines was cleaning its beauty closet and…. I ended up with some products I’m very excited to sample!
* The luxurious John Masters Organics Sweet Orange & Silk Protein Styling Gel provides shine, texture and volume and has rave reviews even by those with fine strands.
* The Mandarin Maximum Moisture cream promises to provide immediate revitalization, is anti-aging and reduces sunspots which means this might be a cure for stress and sun! (Both are PETA cruelty-free certified and made mostly of organic ingredients).
* Holistic Dr. Hauschka bronzing powder is ultra-fine and has hydrating jojoba oil so it’s looks flawless even on dry skin; ideal for dehydrated summer skin.
* Dr Hauschka eyeshadow duo has the perfect brown/gray colors – I used them for my DMV photo today; let’s see how it turns out! (Palette that includes these colors here)

“How to get the best beach hair? Before heading to the shore, spray heat protector in your hair and twist it into a bun on the top of your head. When you leave the beach, take your hair down and you have beautiful waves for the evening.”

PS. We are currently using Aveda’s heat protector. Which one do you love?
