Can the Look of Your Eyebrows Change your Age? Tips in Action:

Tips in Action:Can the Look of Your Eyebrows Change your Age?

Plucking your eyebrows when younger can actually make a face look more mature. But, once you start aging, hair pigment can change and grow in lighter. An easy tip for anti-aging, is to stop plucking eyebrows within the arch.

Keeping the brows cleaned up by tweezing, waxing or threading is acceptable, but allowing the brows to grow in more naturally, will diminish years, giving a younger appearance. Be sure to fill in the brows with a natural pencil or eyeshadow to make the eyebrows appear, actually fuller. Using a good eyebrow gel in clear like the one from Arbonne can tame flyway’s and keep your masterpiece on point.

Longer Lash Green Esthetics Contest

Want longer lashes? I tried this all natural lash therapy by Green Esthetics.

I was skeptical at first to try anything on my eye lashes. They’ve always been a good length, but have changed over the years. I didn’t want something that would thicken them up while I was using it and then thin them out once I stopped. I did my research on the natural ingredients found in the product with all the vitamins and minerals mixed with essential oils, they all have positive results in growing lashes. So with only a little apprehension now, I tried it. And what happened? Longer lashes!

I took a break from using the product for a month to see what would happen. Seriously, no change from the thickness that have developed.

Sound too good to be true? Well here’s a chance to try it yourself for free. TipsfromTia.com and GreenEsthetics.com are giving away a full size bottle of Longer Lash (valued at $65) to one lucky winner.

The Perfect Shade.

The Perfect Shade.

TipsfromTia.com_customized_cosmetics1

While j. Christian were discussing a new topic for our readers, Ashley who works in the back end of the studio approached me. She gave me insight to what her profession is. She’s a make-up chemist.

What exactly is that? She makes cosmetics from the scratch ingredients and personalizes it for her clients. Sounds expensive? It’s affordable! I set up an appointment for a personal mix.

When I got into the chair she wrapped a cape around me and started to find my base tone. It turns out I’m a mix between Ivory and porcelain. She then added in  reds, blue, and purple tones to get my absolute color.

After the color was the perfect shade, she then added other ingredients that those price make-ups claim to have. A dash of a glow, a few drops of anti-aging, and a smidge of a highlighter. Other things she could have added included sunblock or oil absorbents.

I don’t wear much makeup on the daily. I leave that stuff for the photo shoots. But after she applied it to my whole face, I was feeling light, not heavy.

Makeup artist, Mary stepped in to do some basic contouring ideas, while Ashley whipped up some glamorous eye shadow from scratch. It was really cool to watch the process unfold. I have used it as an everyday for a week and my skin actually felt better. Her ingredients have healing properties. And the neatest thing, the cosmetics look better the longer they are on. So by the evening, you look amazing to go out, instead of needing to refresh the makeup. What a bonus!

TipsfromTia.com_customized_cosmetics_31Ashley has her own full line that she is mixing on a personal level. From foundations, liquid, powders and mouses to eyes, cheeks, and lips.

You can make an appointment for a consultation with Ashley at J. Christian Studio.

Sexy Hair Tips is Coming to TipsfromTia.com

Sexy Hair Tips is Coming to TipsfromTia.com

I am so please to present TipsfromTia.com newest contributor, Sexy Hair guru, J. Christian. Before I tell you J.’s first tip he shared with me, let me fill you in on how the stars aligned and our paths crossed.

I was out and about with a friend the other week. We had just enjoyed a delicious plate of the most incredible sautéed brussels sprouts with goat cheese and we were acquiring our final cocktails, when a group of men walked past us, fully painted ebony with gold leaf swirls painted across their chests. Needless to say, it caught our eyes. The chiseled men posed with patrons as a classy, professional business woman stood guard over them. I asked the woman what was the deal. Marcy, as she introduced herself, told me it was a charity event for the local children’s hospital and her husband, J. Christian and their salon donated their time and painted these live statues for the event. Moments later a man with long, rocker hair, tattoos and rings on every finger opened his arms to me as he said, “Tia, I’m J. Christian.”

J. and Marcy were instantly friends of mine. I adored them for taking time to help the children. Yet, I fell in love as I learned about their history. J. has been an international artist and teacher when it comes to the hair industry. Marcy is the business part. They have one rule with each other, Marcy writes the checks and J. does the hair. The posh J. Christian Studio in Hockessin has one rule too. “Ensure everyone that comes in contact with the salon is elevated by the experience and looks and feels better about themselves and lives.”
Helping children isn’t the only charities J. Christian participates in; they donate a lot of time, yearly raising money for various charities. J. spends his daily time teaching not only his employees on how to be the best to their clients, but also teaches his clients the right techniques for their individual hair types. J. has high standards when it comes to his staff. But, that is what makes the salon so award worthy.

Sitting in his vibrant red chair while he cut my hair using a dry technique, he schooled me on the history of hair care products. The discussion focused more on what ingredients not to use, instead of what products I have to use, like other salons try to do. I found out that he was named a top 6th artist in the world, and this New Yorker chose Hockessin, De. to call home during this time in his life. People will travel to get a cut and color at the J. Christian Studio, and by the time he pulled off my cape I could certainly see why. But, it wasn’t just a cut… It was a fulfilling experience. I felt beautiful and smarter by the time I got out of his chair.
Before I left the studio, I ensured J. Christian for my readers to learn as well. He is now our newest addition to the group and he will contribute hair care tips on a regular basis for TipsfromTia.com.
I welcome him and his company, and I hope you take advantage of his upcoming tips and share TipsfromTia.com links with your friends and family.

Ok, time for the very first tip I got from J. Christian. He shared with me… Don’t put tea tree oil in the shampoo for dandruff. For better results, Apply the tea tree to the scalp  a few minutes before washing your hair to beat dry scalp this upcoming winter.

Change Your Eyebrows When Changing Hair Color. Quickie:

Quickie: Change Your Eyebrows When Changing Hair Color.

If changing your hair color drastically, don’t forget to accent your eyebrows, if needed. If a professional is dying your hair, ask about your eyebrows. They can put a quick treatment on the brows, to blend with your new locks.

If you’re doing your hair yourself, I recommend changing the brows with a brow pencil. Less room for error. Remember, brow color usually lightens with age. Investing in a brow pencil early, to keep a natural look, could be a good way to go.

Stupid Tip Of The Day; Plucking Your Eyebrows Without a Plan

By Tia Cristy

Stupid Tip of the Day; What Not To Do

Plucking your own eyebrows with out a plan.
Beautiful Eyes

 

Meaning: If you pluck, you better know where your natural arch is.

Knowing where to let your eye brow start and where it should end is key. The only thing more awkward then the uni-brow, is the brows that are too far apart.

Use a line to start, put your finger flat against the side of your nose to the brow. That is the starting area.

Now put your finger at the corner of your eye and go diagonal towards the top of your ear. That’s the finish line.

Always pluck the under side of the brow, not the top.

If it’s your first time plucking (even if you’ve waxed before) pluck a little at a time. Biggest mistake even a seasoned plucker can do, is over pluck.

Monthly Cramps Got you Doubled Over? Tips on Triggers:

Monthly Cramps Got you Doubled Over? Tips on Triggers:

Period cramps can be debilitating to some women. The pain can have some ladies doubled over in pain for the first few days.

It doesn’t have to be so uncomfortable. There is a trigger area that can help break down the period to relieve cramping.

A quick understanding on why this happens is cramps are usually caused by the flow. Clotting and thickness are usually the culprit of a painful cramp. So, in reality, making a thinner flow will reduce the pain and throbbing.

Take 3 fingers and massage gently in a circular motion, right below the underwear waistband line or right above the hair line on the cramping side. It only has to be massaged for moments at a time, like when you feel a cramp.

Within minutes the cramp with usually go away with kind relief. In some cases you may find after the massage, you have a heavy flow or clot that releases only for a moment.
