Teen Makeup: What’s All the Buzz About?

Have you noticed that everywhere you look, there is media coverage, documentaries and articles all debating this topic. There seems to be more and more interest in how young women perceive their role in society and how that translates to the way they project themselves to the world.

Melissa McNamara would love to help you find your look at a Core Beauty Workshop for Teens

Well, I’m here to tell you that most teens I meet all want the same thing.  To be respected as individuals, to have their voice heard, and of course, to look their best. How can we as the older generation support our teens in being their best selves?? How about not “telling” them who they should be, but rather letting them discover for themselves who they really, truly are.

At out Teen Core Beauty Workshops, we help these fabulous young ladies to discover just how beautiful they really are, by utilizing a self-discovery exercise that helps them to fully understand how they are truly perceived in this world. We then guide them through makeup artistry tips and techniques to bring out that inner beauty.

What can you do help your tween or teen feel confident and ready to take on the world? Send her to our next Core Beauty Workshop.

Holly Fulger is inspired by Jerry Hall
Dec. 26.

Who Is Your Inspiration For Your “New Year New You” Look? You can change your look – but will it lead to changing your life?

Okay….we’re on the countdown for 2012 . Are you looking at what you want to do differently? Are you beginning to visualize yourself next year and get a sense of who you want to be and what you want to project to the world?  I know I certainly am. As I take stock of where I am and where I want to be, I use a tool that works everytime…..inspiration. I look at who inspires me…who I can learn from and model myself after.

Holly Fulger is inspired by Jerry Hall

 

One of the woman I feel a kinship with in terms of style would be Jerry Hall. From the time I could get my hands on a Vogue magazine, Jerry Hall was always one of my favorite models. Her look was different then most. She had big features, she wasn’t Grace Kelly perfect….but she was stunning. I did a series with Renee Russo (another gorgeous woman) and I remember having dinner with her and asking her if she had ever worked with Jerry Hall. She had and described her as a real girls girl. She told me she could put outfits together with some of the most unconventional pieces of clothing (like inexpensive lingerie), and create a look that was amazing. I loved hearing that. I think Jerry Hall is a real original.

Look at her here. She is in her 50′s, beautiful, and sexier then she ever was. What woman wouldn’t want to be like her?

Who inspires you? Is it someone in the public eye? Perhaps an iconic beauty, like Audrey Hepburn? Or maybe you’re inspired by your mother’s style and presence. Role models are important. They give us context. Take some time and think about someone who can be your inspiration for your “New Year, New You”.

Holly Fulger believes that beauty comes from the inside
Dec. 11.

Take the First Step for a New Year, New You! Change Your Look and Changing Your Life – how to begin.

New Year, New You:  The end of 2011….for me a year with many challenges.  It’s hard to believe it went so quickly, and yet I am ready to embrace a new year and new possibilities. I encourage all of you reading this to do the same. I love the thought of a “New Year, New You”. It sounds so hopeful and so full of potential. Now it’s time to take the first step and embrace it. You need to take a look inside.

Find a quiet place and get comfortable. Take a few moments to look at 2011…..your accomplishments, your losses, what you want to take with you into the new year and what you want to let go of. Now…ask yourself these questions: What do I need in my life? What is essential to “me”….to who I am? Do I need excitement? Adventure? Security? Family? Beauty? It can be anything, but you need to put some thought into this. This is YOU and this is important. As I searched my soul for what was important to me, I saw that beauty was necessary to who I was. I needed it in my life, whether it was expressed through my clothing, my environment, or my makeup…beauty was important. I also chose joy and prosperity. I see joy as a kind of freedom. Joy has a lightness to it, and it was essential to my life. Prosperity resonates in how I occur in the world and what I want to attract.

Holly Fulger believes beauty starts from the inside

Next, take a look at yourself in the mirror. Think about the values you have chosen that are essential to your life. Are you presenting yourself to the world in a way that includes these values?  Are you communicating the sort of woman you want to be? In our Core Beauty Workshop, we work with our Core Beauty Reflection Cards, to get women to see what it is that’s truly important to them. We believe in beauty from the inside out. It’s what all our workshops are about. Our core values should always inform our choice of how we want the world to see us. Are you communicating the kind of woman you want to be to the world?

Sexy Makeup: Authentic Swagger

Sexy Makeup…think about it. How sexy are you or your makeup without the proper attitude…..or the right amount of swagger?? How sexy would Lauren Hutton be without her persona? How about Tilda Swinton? Helen Mirren? Confidence is sexy. Authenticity is sexy. Sexiness is in the swagger…the attitude….the  point of view of the individual.

How can authenticity and confidence trump big, luscious lips, and a slamming body? Being present, authentic and confident is irresistible. There is something so amazing about a woman who believes in herself, who knows she is capable of anything she puts her mind to. There is beauty and sexiness in the strength and determination of a woman who follows her own path. There is beauty and sexiness about a woman whose confidence comes from experiences. And there is beauty and sexiness in a woman’s authenticity.

So ask yourself: Am I listening to my inner voice? Am I following my path? Am I living authentically?  (more…)

Luscious Lips are Important for Sexy Makeup

Sexy makeup and lips. Did you know that lips represent one of the most sensual aspects of a woman’s body? According to a study, a woman’s lips are the most attractive part of her body, especially if she’s wearing red lipstick (yay for the red lipstick….my favorite!!).

Get this….scientist Dr. Geoff Beattie found that in the ten seconds after meeting a woman for the first time, the average man will spend more then half his time gazing at her mouth. If she’s applied lipstick, he’ll find it difficult to look away……pink holding his attention for 6.7 seconds, red keeping him fixated for 7.3 seconds. He also went on to say that even though full, red lips combined to deliver the perfect pout to achieve male fixation, women who simply wear lipstick, regardless of their lip type, secure significantly greater levels of attraction than those who do not.

So ladies….let’s practice our pouts.  Read on for a few of our special “Luscious Lips” techniques just for you!  (more…)

Sexy Makeup Begins With the Skin ~ Skin Rejuvenation with Natural Skin Care Products

Sexy Makeup is great, and yet, I believe that skin rejuvenation is one of the most important parts to your overall beauty and your sexiness. Luckily, skin rejuvenation with natural skin care products is completely attainable.

If your skin isn’t in good shape, makeup can only do so much. It is imperative to start skin rejuvenation with healthy, beautiful skin. An excellent skin care regimen will be one of the best investments you can make.  And ladies…..don’t skimp on quality here. You need to get educated about skin care and begin reading labels. Natural skin care products get better results.  Always remember, you are what you absorb. In other words, what you put on your skin goes directly into your bloodstream. Start to understand that what’s in natural skin care products is really good for you…. because healthy is sexy too!

The Core Beauty Workshop uses only Arbonne products. Arbonne products are Vegan certified and (more…)

Sexy Makeup: It’s All About the Eyes ~ Try This Sexy Eye Makeup

Sexy Makeup: I believe one of the most important elements to sexy makeup is the eyes. Seriously, what’s one of the first things you notice about a person when you first meet them? Their eyes. They communicate so much. The face may be the mirror of the mind, but the eyes confess the secrets of the heart.  Playing them up is a wise choice and, in my opinion, essential to a woman’s sexiness. You can do a Smokey Eye for maximum impact, or be subtle, with shadow and mascara. I love LOTS of mascara!!. Maybe that’s not so subtle, but I love the look.

For those of you over 40….here’s a little trick I do. Did you know that proper application of eyeliner and shadow can really make your eyes look younger?  The first thing you need to do is apply an eye shadow base. The base color is usually similar to your own skin color. I use Arbonne’s Vanilla Eye Shadow for my base coat. You place that all over your eye. Next, take a slightly darker color (I use Arbonne’s Suede Eye Shadow….it’s a FABULOUS color) and put that on the ball of the lid – not in the crease.  Now you take a third darker color (my absolute FAVORITE color in the world is Arbonne’s Chocolate Eye Shadow…..unbelievably beautiful!) and place that in the crease of your eye, to the outer edge….making a “lazy 7″ with it. This gives your eye a lift. Now…..to exaggerate your eye a bit, take a black or brown eye pencil. I use Arbonne’s Eye Pencil in Cocoa.  Line along the lash base with the eye pencil. Lastly, it’s mascara. Two coats is usually good……another coat before going out for the evening.

But remember…..all the makeup in the world won’t make you sexy without your attitude and your swagger. Makeup is all about accentuating what you’ve got.

I’d love to help you feel as sexy and beautiful as you deserve to feel! Please check out our upcoming Core Beauty Workshops.

Holly Fulger teaches "Sexy at Every Age"
Oct. 07.

Are you choosing your sexiest makeup colors for your sexy makeup palette?

Sexy Makeup:  Do you know that your choice in makeup colors can make you sexier? It’s true!  How you express yourself in terms of color is essential to your overall sensual self expression.  And this is not about seasonal color analysis (remember when we would try to figure out if we were a Fall or a Winter??). This is about picking colors that help express your Core Beauty Values. Expressing your authentic self is one of the sexiest things you can do.  And…..you can enhance it with color.

Holly Fulger teaches "Sexy at Every Age"

Let me give you an example. I spent the majority of my 30’s and 40’s trying to convince everyone that I was younger then I really was. I was an actress. I was really good at playing the goofy, girlish friend. I did a series called “Anything But Love” for three years and I played Jamie Lee Curtis’s best friend, Robin. I think I am actually a little older then Jamie; if not older, then the same age. Everyone thought that I was the youngest in the cast. Of course I did nothing to dispel this. I loved that I was seen as “the young one”.  Being girlish embodies a lightness.

If girlishness has a color it would certainly be pink…or possibly lilac; nothing in the deeper more primary colors. Being a girl, you’re a color made from mixing two colors together. I loved being girlish, with that ephemeral quality.

But, as I got older, I found myself not fitting into this girlish persona quite so easily. For one thing, I was REALLY no longer a girl, and for another, as an actress, I could no longer play the goofy, girl next door. I was now playing a mom, an auntie, or an abused woman (believe me when I tell you that the roles for women over 40 and 50 are pretty lame. I do believe that things are changing a bit, however, the change is slow). I began looking at myself and at what I was presenting to the world. Who was I authentically?

I had recently started The Core Beauty Workshops, and I wanted people to take me seriously. In terms of my makeup, I decided to make bolder choices. I could go a little bit smokier with the smokey eye….possibly a little blacker and a bit more smudged. As an actress, your concern is always, “am I marketable?” I was tired of always worrying if I looked okay. I wanted to make a statement.  So…..I started to wear red lipstick. Yes, RED! A strong, primary color. Not pink. It changed my whole look! Red is a color a woman would wear. A sexy, authentic woman.
