The Beautiful

Healthy beauty and fashion feng shui enhances your image and your body. Inner beauty radiates when you remove the toxic chemicals and dress to shine! Your personal style is key to who you are as a person, whether that means wearing pajamas or being a total fashionista. Beauty and fashion are more than on the surface- they are a reflection of what you love and how you feel about yourself.

When the summer comes, Nature sort of demands that we let out hair down a bit!  My favorite part of the warm weather- much missing from my life lately- is the beach.  I always keep some organic conditioner in my bag for after swimming in the ocean, and I liberally comb it through salty, a bit sandy hair. After it gets some sun time, it washes out to a week of perfect waves! Today, celebrity makeup artist Chantal Moore shares the anytime way to get those waves with a cult-favorite product that feels like the essence of the sea, gorgeously bottled!  Continue Reading…

SEVEN diamond serum
Every city has its stars of beauty.  Growing up, the local hair guru, Bruce, did my perms (!) and I clung to his every beauty recommendation. I was 10, thankfully, and by age 13 I realized that I needed to look outside of Secaucus for hair and makeup tips as my hair dematerialized from all the chemicals!

 

That said, now I live in Hollywood and the stars of beauty in Los Angeles are a rare bred of excellence: their work is under a microscope, a lens, on red carpets and an open forum for discussion.  While I am sure loads of you have beauty stars you can look to locally to recommend products that rock, I have found that the best product recommendations in my life always come from the insiders of the beauty business in this wild town of mine. This is why I am always thrilled to share celebrity makeup artist Chantal Moore’s beauty picks weekly with all of you who may  or may not be in a metropolis of beauty, especially beauty with a conscience and an eye toward wellness.  Today, Chantal brings us a brilliant hair stylist and his secret to hair that shines like diamonds. Needless to say, I’ll be ramping up my hair this sparkling Spring thanks to this post! Continue Reading…

Spring means bright, and one of my favorite brights is a dash of really red lipstick that immediately transforms a dull day and makes even the most casual of fashion feel sophisticated.  You can read much more of the feng shui of the color red HERE, but suffice it to say, reds are magnetic.

I took a flight from New Jersey to  LA when I was 13. A young woman- maybe 20- was wearing sweats and glasses, but when we landed she pulled out a small compact and put on a red lipstick that suddenly made her look like she emerged from a runway.  From that moment on, I would always have a red stashed away for just the right moment, even at 13!

Today, celebrity makeup artist and balanced beauty expert Chantal Moore brings us the best of vegan & cruelty free lipstick  making a color-ific splash!  Continue Reading…

Spring in Los Angeles is almost Summer, and if you are readying yourself for a new season, changing over your makeup and removing the clutter of what may have expired in your makeup bag is a big part of Spring Cleaning, especially for things like masacara that are not meant to hang around for a long time. Moreover, seasonal makeup and skincare switches- in a balanced way- make the season flow more beautifully.   Today, celebrity makeup artist and balanced beauty expert Chantal Moore shares something I have struggled to find: a waterproof mascara that works, and that is non-toxic all at once!  Get ready for the beach early…!   Continue Reading…

These simple holistic ideas can spark a new Spring romance with your lifestyle… and get the flow going brilliantly!   Continue Reading…

When I think of energy and beauty, radiance and excitement, my mind flashes with images of shimmering gold covering all of life. Minerals and crystals have otherworldly properties of the Earth- born deep in the core of the planet, they are born of a sort of perfect storm of circumstances that shape their beauty and infuse the molecules within them with magnetic bonds that produce drop-dead-gorgeous, energized stones and minerals in a rainbow of colors and sheen.  Beauty treatments infused with this energy are tremendous, and while still rare to find, celebrity makeup artist and balanced beauty expert Chantal Moore  has discovered a beauty line filled with gemstones and minerals.  Are you as excited as I am?!
