“Salma Hayek’s Beauty School”

Beauty Tips from Salma Hayek!

So way back in September, Salma Hayek was on the Rachael Ray show discussing her new product line Nuance Salma Hayek (she’s been working on it for 10 years!).  Apparently her grandmother was into beauty recipes and knew about exotic plants from Mexico, so she wanted to share hew wealth of beauty knowledge with other women.  One of the main ingedients is called tepezcohuite, and it is used in Mexico and South America to regenerate burn victims’ skin.   Its a full product line (from shampoos to lotions to makeup).  She claims her products can get rid of dark circles and wrinkles.  Of course, everyone likes the “pod” packaging of her lipsticks and eye shadows.  They are all less than $20, but available exclusively at CVS,  unfortunately there isn’t one near me!

So after discussing her products, Salma answered audience members beauty questions!  So Salma made the following recommendations:

Dark Circles

Use her Cooling Eye Gel with Green Tea in the morning to help depuff and remove shadows.  Then use the Nuance Wrinkle Filler to tone and tighten (as a temporary fix).  She suggested using an orange concealer (or colour corrector) instead of a lighter concealer to counteract the blue in dark circles (from your veins).  Tap it on, don’t rub!

The Right Blush for Fair Skin

Use tinted moisturizer to  look darker without looking made up.  She suggested matching the blush to the colour of your inner mouth for a natural look.

Fuller Looking Lips

Use a lip liner in the same colour as your lipstick, which should be close to your natural colour.  Take a contour cream and put a tiny amount just under your lip to give depth and bring your bottom lip forward (A New Tip to me – I love learning something new!).  Put a highlighting colour just around the curves of your top lip and top with shimmery gloss.
