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.

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.

                                                      12: 00 pm -4:00 pm    Los Angeles, CA     Tuition is $50.00

Holly Fulger believes in redefining beauty so it works for you
Jan. 04.

Redefining What It Means To Be Beautiful

I want to start my “New Year New You” commitment by redefining beauty. Let’s face it……beauty is complex. There is so much more to beauty then just appearance.  It is so much deeper. Beauty is a reflection of who we are….it begins in our hearts and in our souls and is reflected outwardly. I believe that we intrinsically know this to be true, but all too often we get caught up in what others’ definition of beauty is.  The outside world — particularly the media — presents beauty in very simplistic terms. To our society at large, beauty is all about the physical. Physical attractiveness in our culture is very limited, especially for women. All you have to do is open any magazine, or turn on the television. With few exceptions, women who are presented as beautiful are thin, tall, have relatively perfect facial symmetry, and have spectacular bodies….which usually includes long legs and/or large (or perfect) breasts. A very small number of women actually meet these standards naturally. It’s no wonder many of us often feel less than ideal.

Ultimately, I believe it is up to each and every one of us to determine our own beauty and value.  Many of us never take the time to consider how and why we value ourselves; we base our self-esteem entirely on outside opinions. If we don’t meet the measure of beauty presented to us in the media, we must not be beautiful. So…..I want you to try something. I want you to begin every day by telling yourself that you are beautiful. Challenge yourself to consider your own beauty in new ways. Make “beauty” synonymous with “kindness” or “strength”. Find one thing about yourself each and every day that is beautiful….whether it’s your kindness or your strength…..your smile or your laugh….find one thing. This will help you to appreciate who you are and what you have to give. And, it will help you appreciate your fabulous, beautiful self. Always remember, you are the most beautiful version of you.

Five Basics For Your “New You” Look. Change Your Look and it leads to Changing Your Life

Holly Fulger is a true believer in a healthy lifestyle

We can’t forget about the basics for your “New Year, New You” look. There are some pretty nuts and bolts kinds of things that just need to be included in that. Beauty from the inside out is not only a spiritual thing….it is also a health and wellness thing. As you start the New Year, I believe there must be a commitment to health and wellness. You can accomplish some pretty major change with a few simple steps.

1. Eat Healthy…..eating a healthy diet can help reduce the risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. It helps you achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Make the produce isle at the market your first stop.  Make sure you include your grains, such as brown rice. I also love oat bran, and have it every morning with nonfat yogurt. Nuts and seeds are a great source of protein and are high in Omega 3, as is salmon, tuna, sardines, and other seafood.

2. Stop eating processed foods, sodas, and artificial sweeteners…..Processed foods include packaged high-calorie snack foods such as chips and candies, breads and pastas made with refine white flour instead of whole grains, processed meats, packaged cakes and cookies, and sugary breakfast cereals.

No artificial sweetners! They are cancer causers, plain and simple. If you use any kind of sugar substitute, try Stevia.

Stop drinking soda. Sugary soft drinks are the biggest single source of empty calories in the American diet.

3. Get active….. It can be anything…..walking your dog for 20 minutes a day, a bike ride, a yoga class….anything that gets you moving. Physical activity is essential to a healthy lifestyle. The health and beauty benefits are astonishing.

4.Stop smoking……. Smoking compromises your body in every way. Stopping smoking can save your life.

5. Get 8 hours of sleep a night……. Many of us want to sleep as little as possible—or feel like we have to.  But just as getting active and eating healthy are essential for optimal health and happiness, so is sleep. The quality of your sleep affects your productivity, emotional balance, creativity, and even your weight. No other activity delivers so many benefits with so little effort! It also helps keep you beautiful.

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!

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.

Which lip color makes you feel sexiest?
Which eye makeup look is your personal sexiest?
