What’s the best way to look cool in the summer heat?  The team of Beauty Buzz 90210 is here to give you the best tips for keeping cool when things heat up.



1.  Keep cool with hydrating mists.

While powder can look cakey and messy, a setting spray will set your makeup AND keep you cool in the summer heat.  You can keep a small spray bottle of filtered water in your purse to use as an all over misting cool down.

2.  Use a cosmetic puff to touch up or remove perspiration.

A professional cosmetic puff is the perfect tool for looking fresh!  Fill it up with oil-absorbing powder to remove shine, and you can store it in your beach bag for an instant touch up.  Even if you don’t fill it with powder, it can be used to remove perspiration by simple rolling it across your skin.  It instantly removes any oil or impurities by absorbing into puff, without removing your makeup!

3.  Use makeup wipes to keep “cool”.

A nice way to freshen up is by using a wipe to cool down the inner wrists, back of the neck, and behind the knees…  while keeping the area super clean and sweat free.

4.  Oil blotting papers keep skin looking fresh.

This is a great tip for anyone – especially men!  Blotting papers can be used to remove oil and sweat from the face.  I give these to my male clients to carry in their briefcases, to use prior to meetings, interviews, etc.  It works great because even though there is usually a very small amount of powder on the paper, it doesn’t look like makeup at all!!

Sunkissed and Sexy – Why Airbrushed Tans Rock!!

Why should you get an airbrushed tan to get a sunkissed and sexy glow?  Here’s 3 reasons why:



Did you know that 80% of the damage caused by the sun occurs before the age of 25?  That’s why all of us over 30 are trying to convince all those young teens and 20-somethings to beware!  All those years of sunbathing at the beach to get a golden glow catches up to you – That’s why airbrushing is THE way to go!  Get tanned and bronzed without the harmful effects of the sun.


Yes, it’s true.  Getting an airbrush tan can make you look 10 pounds lighter!!  Just as wearing black slims you, a tan makes it harder to see any skin imperfections and blurs the appearance of bumpy cellulite.  Also, an airbrush can enhance your abs and create contour as an illusion of body sculpting.  With bathing suit season right around the corner – This is reason enough to come in for a tan!


If it’s not airbrushed by a professional, preferably a makeup artist, you are not getting top notch application.  Standing in a machine and letting a machine spray you does not ensure consistency in coverage.  All skin shades tend to be uneven, and a makeup artist is familiar with this and can correct it.

I’ve always wanted to get full, beachy waves in my straight, long hair.  I enlisted the advice of Celebrity Hair Stylist, Billy Lowe, to show me some red carpet secrets to achieve this look.

Just follow along with this step by step video, and Billy will show you how to get the perfect tousled, sexy head of hair!

Here are a few key tips that I learned from this:

  1. Don’t roll the hair UNDER, twist the hair around the barrel in a spiral motion.
  2. Start the curl from the tOP of the hair, closest to the scalp.  Leave the ends for last  so that you prevent drying and damaging.
  3. Use 1 inch sections all over.
  4. Don’t pull DOWN on the curl to loosen it, hold it up and bounce it instead.

Now you too can have the beautiful, beachy waves you’ve always wanted!!  Get more beauty tips on http://www.youtube.com/beautybuzz90210


The Perfect Smoky Eye – Beauty Tutorial

“How do I get a smoky eye?”  That’s probably one of the most frequently asked question I get.  I’m going to let you in on a little secret…There’s a big misconception out there.  A lot of the time, people use the term “smoky eye” to describe the color they are trying to achieve, like charcoal gray.  In reality, the term “smoky eye” refers to a technique, not a color.

Here are some basics to follow:

  • Choose a wash color, a dark color, and a medium pop of color.
  • The darkest shade should encircle the entire eye, closest to the lash line.  Don’t forget the inner rim!  That’s the secret for getting a true smoky eye!
  • Use the medium shade in the crease to blend the dark shade and the wash color together.
  • Thicken the lashes with loads of mascara or false lashes.
