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!!

While watching this show about makeup and how to be safe, I found myself running for a notepad to take notes…  I get so many questions about ingredients and quality control, and this information can help all consumers make smart choices.

Is Your Makeup Dangerous?

Lipstick is a $500 million a year industry – but are they using that money to harm you with cheap fillers??

Did you know…

Carmine is Beetle Wings

Lanoline is Sheep Skin

Guanine is Fish Scales


All of these things can be found in your cosmetics!!  Check the labels.

Look for these dangerous ingredients, if you see them, do not use the products:

DMDM Hydantoin – Formaldehyde

PEG – Petroleum Chemicals

Parabens – Cancer Causing Preservatives

 Follow these rules to be safe…

  • The fewer ingredients, the better
  • Look for ingredients you can pronounce
  • Spend more money on less products
  • Watch for the word “fragrance”, it could be anything!
  • Don’t trust the FDA.  In order for them to have concern with a product, it has to be proven “unequivocally” that something causes cancer
  • Use Vegan products to ensure there are no animal by-products
  • Be an educated consumer, use product lines that you KNOW are safe

Nowadays, more than ever, men are realizing the need to take care of their skin and hair to keep up with the women in their lives.  Cosmetic companies and makeup artists alike are now able to provide men with the products and celebrity beauty tips to look and feel their best.  Here are a few basics to consider in your grooming routine:

1.  Use a proper skincare regimen which includes a Cleanser, toner and Moisturizer.

2.  Groom facial hair and trim any of those pesky chest hairs that pop out along the shirt collar.  For more shaving tips, see a beauty tutorial from Celebrity Hair Stylist Billy Lowe on Beauty Buzz 90210.

3.  Use blotting papers to soak up any excess oil throughout the day.

4.  Trim the brows and tweeze any excess hair, also know as the “unibrow”.

5.  You can always use a Tinted Moisturizer if you need a little coverage, it doesn’t look like your wearing any makeup at all!
