Fall Beauty Colors the Senses

Published

on

Fall is just around the corner. The time is now to get your beauty on with an array of fantastic offerings. Here are some simply gorgeous things we love to make you feel beautiful this season.

Armani Beauty’s Eye Tint Long-Lasting Liquid Eyeshadow is the absolute best eye shadow selection of the season. There is something so divine about using a product that goes on smooth like butter and feels like silk on the face. Every shade of color goes with any skin tone and will make the lucky wearer feel the power of luxury. It is exquisite and a true game changer in the industry.

 

Perfect for creating the Latte eye, and the water-infused formula is creamy, blendable, and long lasting. Use a neutral, matte shade like 30 on the lid, then apply a darker, matte shade like 36 in the crease. Then, go in with a neutral shimmer in the corner with shades 9 or 12.

Lights Lacquer is the nail polish that you have been wanting your entire life. Your hands take on divine sophistication with this incredible brand. Let your hand do the talking with this on because you will have a lot of wonderful things to say!

The female-founded, Latina-owned brand founded by KathleenLights, has launched YNBB III, the third volume of the popular nudes collection, featuring six new sheer nudes that were thoughtfully designed to enhance the natural beauty of all skin tones. YNBB III is the perfect collection for the latest nail trends dominating the beauty space, in the award-winning formula Lights Lacquer is known for.  YNBB III includes rich sheer jelly & crelly (similar to a jelly, but has more pigment) tones. 

Your hair is set to feel as much luxury with Aveeno Blackberry Quinoa Protein Shampoo and Conditioner.

Infused with blackberry and quinoa protein, this shampoo and conditioner helps preserve hair color and restore naturally lightened strands. The shampoo and conditioner are also beneficial for an irritated scalp.

Make your hair feel even more superb with Rogaine. The 1st FDA-approved over-the-counter topical hair loss treatment proven to regrow hair truly works. It fits easily into your daily routine, with offerings in two convenient formats: foam and solution; both which provide same great results with continued usage.

We love the way the Women’s Solution makes a noticeable difference in about a month without feeling like you have used harsh chemicals. Hair becomes noticeably thicker, especially on top root areas. This is such a sensitive topic for women, so they way it works well and in a sophisticated way is truly admirable and should be applauded.

Regrow thicker, beautiful hair with the 2% minoxidil, this solution that wonderfully  reactivates hair follicles to regrow hair. You’ll begin to see results in 3-6 months, so we recommended starting with a 3-month supply.

 

For 35 years, Rogaine products have been proven to counteract the effects of hair loss by revitalizing hair follicles so you can regrow thicker, fuller hair. All Rogaine products feature minoxidil, the only ingredient clinically-proven to stimulate new hair regrowth in topical form.

Stream2Sea sunscreen brand developed by Autumn Blum, a chemist, entrepreneur, and ocean advocate who has testified before Congress on the harmful effects of chemical-based personal care products on the environment. What is available to the consumer is an incredible brand that protects your skin and for all the right reasons. The offerings of the company are great for both kids and adults. We even adore the way it is fantastic for people with sensitive skin. Enjoy your time in the sun during fall walks on the park or even brisk hikes on trails full of colorful autumn leaves.

Stream2Sea offers a range of sunscreen products that are consciously formulated to be safe for both the environment and the user. Suitable for sensitive and acne-prone skin, the formulas are water-based and non-greasy, so you never have to worry about the sunscreen blocking your pores!

The Beautiful Artistry of Abosoyoki

Published

on

The perfect facial experience is found in the heart of Manhattan. When you discover the divine artistry of Abosoyoki you will find yourself on an elevated adventure and glorious way to discover the treasure of beautiful skin.

The splendid skincare studio, located at Madison Square Park, was founded by Soyoki Abo. The  aesthetician and certified beautician is a one-of-kind entrepreneur who holds rich knowledge of what it takes to establish and maintain wonderful skin. She is passionate about her dedicated work and a first meeting will demonstrate her keen sensibilities.

Walking into her work space the stress of the city streets slowly melts away. You are embraced in the glowing warmth of her presence. Comforting and soulful, her one room office is like the atelier of a great artist or fashion designer who knows the small details really matter.

Once you are in session, her magic touch takes over. It dominates the mood in a positive way. The production and her method goes beyond just the way she touches you or uses her equipment. The pinnacle of her work is breathtaking and soars higher than many in her field. It is because her method is based on her love of helping others discover great skin blended with a background of influential family affairs.

She will tell you how her search for great health and wellness began with the way her grandmother helped care for her as well as how she watched her mother and sister delving into ways to expand their horizons. All the moments reflect on her need to find and use products on clients that are fundamentally based on clean living. It has pushed her to search the world for products that fundamentally represent her core values and beliefs that every person should feel confident, beautiful, and empowered, and is passionate about the art of beauty. Just one example is how on a trip from Italy she found a small business that sold an olive oil balm that she feel in love with due to it being a great moisturizer. She ended up buying several and now uses it on clients.

Soyoki and her studio are different for those intimate reasons as much as the fact that she knows how to make your skin different if you have problems. It is a bespoke experience with this amazing artist – this amazing sculptor of grand skin.

Offering a variety of facials and other beauty treatments to help people look and feel their best, she makes time to personalize to each session and patiently reviews client skin type and need  to keep skin healthy and radiant.

Each personalized facial is customized for the individual’s skin type, plus she offer tips to keep skin healthy and radiant long after you leave her magical studio until the next session.

Some of Soyoki’s treatments include:

●  Personalized Facial Massage ($135) – The skin is a very emotional organ. This relaxing, nourishing, and restorative 50-minute facial massage experience is flexible, as needed based on the clients’ skin concerns and needs.

Microneedling ($350) – Known as collagen induction therapy, this uses tiny needles to create micro channels into the skin, stimulating the dermis and boosting collagen. The treatment is infused with Hyaluronic Acid, which retains moisture in the skin. The skin is pre-treated with topical numbing cream as this is an invasive treatment. Dermaplaning and LED Light Therapy are beneficial add-ons for this treatment.

Dermaplaning ($115) – This treatment uses a sterile scalpel blade to gently exfoliate the top layer of skin manually, always removing peach fuzz. It helps makeup go on smoother, and moisturizer/serums penetrate deeper. It can help reduce the appearance of acne scars or pitted skin.

Keratin/Lash & Brow Lift/Tint ($85) – A lash/brow lift is an all-natural, semi-permanent procedure that gives you the appearance of fuller, thicker lashes/brows without the use of any leave-on chemicals or extensions. The natural hairs are boosted from the root, giving them a lifted, lengthened appearance. (For more info on the difference between the two, click here.)

Eyelash Extensions ($140) – Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent lashes that are hand-glued on top of your natural lashes. They are applied to each of your individual natural eyelashes (one extension per natural eyelash). Abosoyaki offers a variety of extension lengths, curl patterns, and qualities so clients can customize their look.

Eyebrow Microblading ($500) – Microblading is a cosmetic tattooing procedure that fills in thin eyebrow areas to make them look fuller. Unlike a traditional tattoo, which is permanent, the coloring from microblading may last for up to 3 years. Microblading uses different tools and a smaller amount of pigment than the traditional tattoo.

  1. SETSPigments – Featuring a rice peptide base, selected for its immediate action to prevent color from fading, and rich in amino acids and polysaccharides, this active ingredient works to create a protective sheath around each strand of hair that captures pigments and prevents them from vanishing
  2. PROTECTSColor – This high performance ingredient duo of sunflower extract (rich in phyto-nutrients) and tara tannins, (rich in powerful antioxidants) works to trap free radicals induced by external stress factors, and prevents pigments from fading and highlights from changing color (such as turning green), while ensuring more vibrant shade.
  3. NURTURESthe Hair Fiber – Thanks to Karanja oil, composed of fatty acids (Omega 6 and 9) and flavonoids, which intensely cares for color-treated hair, it nourishes and repairs sensitized hair fiber, while reinforcing the hydrolipidic film. Also known for its ability to absorb part of the UV rays, Karanja oil offers impressive photo protection to extend color’s radiant sheen.

PHYTO’s new COLOR routine includes:

  • COLOR Anti-Fade Shampoo($22) – Delicately removes accumulated dirt from hair fiber and is ultra-gentle on color pigments. It leaves color-treated and highlighted hair clean, lightweight and luminous.
  • COLOR Radiance Enhancer Conditioner($26) – To be used after the Anti-FadeShampoo, this fluid conditioner not only makes detangling easier, but also provides remarkable shine from the very first application. Color-treated and highlighted hair is easy to style, and the color appears increasingly luminous.
  • COLOR Extend Mask ($35)– Optimize shine with this lavish treatment that completes the haircare routine with a two-fold long-term promise: lasting color and beautiful hair fiber. Its high concentration in active ingredients protects and revives pigment intensity, while deeply repairing sensitized hair. It leaves color-treated and highlighted hair looking stronger, healthier, beautiful and shiny for several weeks.

Look I Have Some Lips Where There Never Was a Lip

Published

on

Now I never have been one for tattoos, until I heard about permanent makeup. This cosmetic technique employs tattoos as a means of correcting flaws either nature, old age or disease has erased or forgot. In my case my mother plucked my eyebrows way to thin and I am fair so they all but disappeared. I also was left out in the lip department when God was handing out lips, I got ones that evaporated. As I got older in pictures, this flaw made me look almost snake like.

Thanks to Jeffrey Lyle Segal, I have been corrected. I have metamorphosed into a butterfly who can now smile with confidence. as I looked in the mirror.

Jeffrey Lyle Segal,

For those who know me, they know I am terrified of needles. With the ointment Jeff uses there is a minimal of pain. For the eye brows there is none. What you do is hear a sound that sounds like tearing. For the lips, the initial round it is pain free. There is a little discomfort when the needle returns to same place, but nothing that one can’t handle. For me the eyes are the hardest and not because of the needle. I have hyper sensitive eyes that tear up and send hundreds of droplets down my face in the wind. When the ointment is applied my eyes rebel and I become a difficult patient but Jeffrey was patient and now the eyeliner is done to perfection.

Having permanent make-up, means you wake up looking refresh and put together without doing a thing. When you are sick, you still look radiant, which can lift your spirits to heal faster.

all the make-up here is tattooed

Normally eyeliner costs $475 for a single application top or bottom or $850 for two sessions a month apart. Lips run $475 for liner and $575 for both lining and lip stain. For a second session take a $100 off if prepaid at the first session. For eyebrows the price is $475 for a single application or $850 for two sessions a month apart. These prices are all on the low end for Manhattan. As a special deal for all T2C readers, as a Valentine’s Special booked by February 14th  Jeff will offer an additional $100 discount for what ever service you choose.

Jeff has been a permanent cosmetic artist since 1991. He has been a media makeup artist in film, theater and TV with over 30 years experience. He is the author of “The Shape of Permanent Beauty” and he teaches makeup design training for permanent cosmetics. Besides being a permanent cosmetic artist, he is also a certified Hypnotist offering non-drug assisted version of anesthesia and anxiety reduction.
