Monday’s Beauty Cues ● The Three Essentials

We asked our faithful MODAGE Facebook Fans and Clients what three beauty essentials every woman should own and the consensus thus far has been: 
  • Black Eyeliner
  • Body/Hand Lotion
  • Burt's Bees Citrus Facial Scrub
  • Clear Nail Polish
  • Eye Shadow
  • Eyelash Curler
  • Face Powder
  • Facial Moisturizer
  • Makeup Remover Wipes
  • Mascara
  • Nail File
  • Natural Cheek Blush
  • Sunscreen
  • Tinted Lip Gloss
Our favorite beauty essentials are:

Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils
{Caution, your lashes will "pop" and provide a dash of color that will define your eyes.}

Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque
{I have used Mint Julep since I was a kid-before I even needed it.  Great to use after eyebrow/lip waxing and when minor acne breakouts occur.}

Givenchy Prismissime Bronzer
{Sun-kissed in 5 minutes flat - who needs to travel to an island when you can
carry "paradise" in your makeup bag!}

Honorable Mentions

In conclusion, one beauty essential that we all need to have in our daily possession is “self confidence.”  What are your beauty essentials? Is there any one product you just can’t leave home without?

Fascinator Friday ● We Love Philip Treacy!

After watching Project Runway last night and seeing Philip Treacy, we wanted to share with you the very hat that assisted us with creating the vision for our upcoming Mad Fashion High Tea ● Celebrating Vintage Couture soirée. 

We are so inspired by this amazing fascinator that we plan to visit our favorite consignment boutique New To You, Inc., tomorrow to play dress up - care to join us?

Cultivated Class ● The Queen of Gems and The Gem of Queens

Pearls are the only gemstones created by a living organism and considered unique as no two are exactly alike.  Delicate, highly prized, feminine and rich are the words in which we will use to describe our favorite gem.
Fresh water pearls are a popular choice and an amazing addition to any fashionistas'  jewelry collection. 
Effortless Style:
Diamonds compliment pearls nicely and when styling clients for their special day, we are always reminded of how we thought of both gems when conceptualizing Savvy Soirées personal reflection statement which is “sophisticated, classic, tasteful, elegant, timeless."

Defined Femininity ● Demelza Buckley

I  stumbled upon these photos this morning and my immediate thoughts were the average female is beautiful; however, beauty lies not in their attire, but in the warm glow of confidence that radiates from their faces.

Irish Designer, Demelza Buckley, is one of the most exciting new faces in fashion.  From  soft cream ruffles to her elegant sculptural designs, I can truly turn heads and feel like royalty in her signature pieces.

Her collection screams sophisticated, bold and confident!

Bridal Bracelets & Bangles ● Chunky, Stacked, Sparkly or Vintage?

Our client demand for bridal bangles/bracelets this 2010 wedding season has increased tremendously. The most sought after bangles are complimented by soft metallics, while our bracelets are geared towards heirloom trinkets consisting of Marcasite or Swarovski Crystals. Whether fancy or costume, nothing can add "pop" to your bridal attire like statement jewelry.  Remember, wedding jewelry can be anything you want it to be and we encourage our clients to mix and match their own jewelry in an effort to remain true to their personal style.
Question :: Would you consider showing off chunky bangles or your favorite sparkly stacked bracelets to compliment your bridal attire?
If bangles/bracelets are your thing, allow them to take the lead and let your other accessories play the supporting role.  Less is always more and you do not always need diamonds to dazzle them Darlin'.

Featured Real Wedding ● Deone + Denise {Teaser Photos}

We had the extreme pleasure of planning the recommitment ceremony of Deone and Denise who were interested in reconfirming their love after ten years of marriage.  Michael Clark Photographics captured their sizzling day and the renewal ceremony was held at Loews Lake Las Vegas.  An intimate evening complete with a yacht cruise around Lake Las Vegas, true friends, family, tons of candlelight, purple flair and 106-degrees weather.   This is a glimpse into their special day!

Wishing the Campbell's continued bliss, health, wealth, smiles and unlimited blessings!
