FFL loves Arnica Montana! No, not Hannah’s long-lost sister, but rather a flower found in the highlands of Europe and Scandinavia known for its ability to heal bruises, calm inflammation, and even dissipate dark under-eye circles. When an international beauty conference brought us to the DC area this weekend, I couldn’t wait to steal a few minutes of R&R at Natural Body Spa & Shoppe for a new way to experience our floral friend with an Arinca Massage.
Earth Day is turning 40 this Thursday April 22nd! Trust us, Mother Earth won’t mind if you recycle a gift (c’mon, you know you’ve done it before!). And the best part? You won’t have to shop any further than your makeup bag.
No one at FFL likes taking tests, but we thought this may be one exam you might actually WANT to take! #2 pencils and Scantron sheets not required 🙂 Click here to start the exam.
Breath-taking blues, sultry greens, or chocolate browns. We all know those beautiful girls who’s eyes alone captivate both men and women alike. There’s no way to deny that the eyes have it! They are one of the first things we notice, so it’s no wonder that we shadow, shade, and fringe them up with lush lashes; big, bright eyes exude energy, friendliness, and, of course, sex appeal. Why not move beyond a new eye powder or liner and go for an even more dramatic change?
Ahhh, the perfect tan. It’s hard to argue how healthy and refreshed someone looks with a golden glow. With the warmer weather approaching we all want to look our best while we’re wearing less. Proms, weddings, and island getaways send legions of glow-getters off to the tanning salon. Well, this year that’s gonna come with a price: a 10% tax to be precise.
Naturally, your face wash removes most of the grime that manages to coat your complexion throughout the day, but it’s not always enough to give you the radiant glow you hope to see in the mirror every morning. Over time, tiny amounts of dirt and makeup can build up on the surface of your skin, and prevent its true beauty from shining through.
I absolutely love how my skin looks after a good facial. The satiny smoothness… that glycolic glow – it’s like living photo-shop! If you’re like me and a weekly trip to the spa doesn’t quite fit in with your schedule or budget, a home peel is a pretty great way to go.
You know those nights when you’re just too tired, too tipsy, or too “something else“, to take off your makeup before you go to bed? Well, imagine never having to worry about waking up with smudgy raccoon eyes again. Imagine your lipstick stuck on your smoocher instead of your sheets. Imagine ditching your overflowing collection of brow pencils and stencils. Over the past few months I’ve watched three of my city-chic coworkers save tons of money and time by opting for perennial pretty with permanent makeup. Hmmm… maybe they are on to something.
