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.

gotu kola

(gotu kola- a very potent and natural skin miracle, and just one of the fresh ingredients in today’s balanced beauty!)

Me and the typical beauty serum = allergies.

You will not catch me layering on the latest technological advance for my skin, because in my experience it leads to days of not being able to leave the house!

When I discovered a new world of serums made from essential oils, natural protiens and other botanicals, my skin thanked me a million times over for it!   That said, I have never found a power-packed eye serum except castor oil that could really make a difference for brighter, fresher eyes in the morning…. until now!

Celebrity makeup artist and balanced beauty expert Chantal Moore brings us a eye serum so absolutely awesome and 98% natural (that’s a huge percentage for a product sold on shelves!) that I am thrilled! This is balanced beauty to love!   Continue Reading…

raw elements

We all know that sunscreen is a necessity, not a luxury, especially in the Summer or in the year-round summers of some places!  Unfortunately, the trade off for a sunscreen that works lots of the time is  a sunscreen that is loaded with chemicals that may just be more dangerous than over-exposure to the sun.   Leave it to celebrity makeup artist and balanced beauty expert Chantal Moore to bring us the ultimate in insider sunscreen that is totally non-toxic and even waterproof!  I rushed to buy one online… and I think you will, too!  Continue Reading…

strawberries beauty
Mother Nature is the best source for inner and outer beauty.  The strawberry, for example, is an amazing addition to a face masque or cleanser as it is an incredible source of exfoliating acids and purifying antioxidants.  Glowing skin loves strawberries!
While I am quick to run to the kitchen to whip up a beauty potion, there are some products that harness the best of natural beauty in ways that are time-tested.  Since my days of strolling around New York in the cavernous and mystical art world, Mario Badescu seaweed and berry-rich products have been near and dear to my beauty-loving heart.  I am so excited that celebrity makeup artist and balanced beauty expert Chantal Moore feels the same, sharing a classic near and dear to her as well for glowing skin… and it is filled with strawberry awesomeness!

vitamin c mask

To know me is to know I love high-level simplicity. And non-toxic DIY beauty. I have habits of honey in my hair, table sugar and coconut oil everywhere on my skin and apple cider vinegar in baths. There are days of whipping things, cracking eggs, shaking up coconut oil with essential oils and more…

Most work.  A few fail. Some become daily habits.

A few become beauty secrets.

This resurfacing, skin-feeding, cell-repairing vitamin face mask is something I can’t believe I never tried!

At any given moment I have 4-6 lip glosses, balms and other remedies in my purse.  I bet I’m not alone. I know men who carry at least 2 along with them as well. We all need it. The elements can be unkind to our lips!

They inevitably get used to the last drop if they are good. If they are not- 90% of the time- they get lost somehow. The search for the perfect lip balm is a trick. Some actually dry out your lips more (the menthol ones do that to me) and some last on lips for about three seconds in my experience.  Plus, I surmise that we all must “lick off” a bunch of it, which means that lip gloss is something you really want to be sure is non-toxic.  Today, celebrity makeup artist and balanced beauty expert Chantal Moore has an awesome lip remedy to share that has been field-tested for both men and ladies to rave reviews!

Sunscreen has never been more important!  In Los Angeles, we have year-round sun, and without sunscreen not only are we prone to sun-borne skin issues, over time the splotchy and discolored skin that results from too much sun is no fun. A great sunscreen is vital, yet so many are confusingly toxic.   Today, celebrity makeup artist and balanced beauty expert Chantal Moore brings us a sunscreen that is high on protection and without all the poison you don’t want… plus it’s a spray-on oil, so it is super-convenient and leaves your skin silky and radiant!
