Aging Like A Movie Star
Aging Like A Movie Star
TUESDAY, JUNE 07, 2011

Ever notice how well celebs have been aging recently? This slow-aging trend isn’t due to genetics but rather how well celebs take care of themselves. Since they are constantly in the spotlight, celebs need to look their best through the years, and many will do anything to age as slowly as possibly. A few of my celeb clients over 45 recently came to me for the best ways to look young and stay young looking, and this is the advice I gave them: Hyaluronic Acid.

Although neither of these methods last longer than a year, they are excellent ways to help plump up sallow looking areas and provide an instant, natural looking youthfulness, without any downtime. Injectible fillers are a safe alternative to more invasive plastic surgery, and are inexpensive enough for a semi-annual splurge. They are also great for a number of applications around the face. If you are considering injectible fillers, keep in mind that the key areas that will make you look most youthful are:

Your Eye Area

To fill in sunken areas under the eye, and sagging areas above the eye, I recommend an injection of hyalurionic acid. These injections will fill-in and lift sunken areas where skin typically tends to get thin and sags, thus giving you the appearance of looking younger and well-rested. I always recommend using a thick orbital-eye moisturizer over the entire area to help minimize wrinkles and smooth skin out even more as well.

Your Mouth and Chin:

Many of my clients love to laugh (who doesn’t, right?) but are concerned with accentuating their laugh lines. For laugh-lines or marionette lines, I recommend a hyalurionic injection. For lip-lines on the top lip, I also recommend a hyalurionic acid injection. For chin sagging, I recommend either Juvederm or Restylane injections to help firm the area. A thick eye cream can also be used in the laugh and marionette lines to help smooth out the creases.

Your Face and Neck:

To help diminish forehead lines and those nasty “11 lines,” I recommend Hyaluronic or Juvederm injections. For cheeks that are too sunken in, I recommend Hyaluronic injections over the bone and in the hollows to make cheeks appear fuller and younger. For a sagging neck, I recommend Hyaluronic acid and Thermage injections.

Your Skin:

For overall skin health, I recommend regular treatments with a good esthetician or a few trips to a good laser facility. Both of these methods can even out skin tone and texture, reduce pores and redness, and help your skin maintain naturally high collagen and resiliency.

For over a decade, Scott-Vincent Borba has been a renowned innovator in the beauty category and has worked on such esteemed brands such as Hard Candy Cosmetics, Johnson & Johnson®, P&G/Wella-Sebastian, Shiseido/Joico, and Dr. Murad. 
Scott-Vincent helped found E.L.F. Cosmetics with the idea that quality color cosmetics shouldn’t be limited to high-end department stores.

 

 Scott-Vincent has been a high-fashion model, TV personality and became a licensed aesthetician to further his credentials and experiences. He founded BORBA, and continues to use his creative thinking to push the envelopes of skin care as we know it.

I Recently Attended a MUAH Party
I Recently Attended a MUAH Party
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 26, 2009




I recently attended a MUAH party at bloggy friend of mines home. What is a MUAH party you asked?MUAH stands for Make Up At Home. It is a party that e.l.f. Cosmetics and SheSpeaks have been running with bloggers so that their friends can learn more about e.l.f. products as well as educate themselves about proper makeup techniques.

I already LOVE e.l.f. products. I was sold on my first try with some lip gloss I had received. But I learned a TON at this party, and had a lot of fun too.

What did I learn? Did you know that PINK is NOT the color for me for my lips? I couldn't believe it! For years I have been wearing the same color pink lipstick and NO ONE told me it was the WRONG color for me. Thank goodness for my friends who are not afraid to tell me the truth. But now I am wondering what else I am doing wrong?!  At the MUAH party, I tried (hesitantly tried) a brownish cocoa color lipstick. I am very pale and I thought to myself, this is gonna look horrible, like I ate a Hershey bar and it melted all over my mouth. But It was great! It really made my lips pop!   Also, I learned that I shouldn't be afraid to "explore" more when it comes to my make-up. There was a bright dazzling green creamy eye shadow there that I loved, but I would never think to even try or buy it.  At the suggestion of my friend Kim (@craftymamaof4), I tried this green creamy eyeshadow and low and behold, IT ROCKED! I was so pleased and everyone was giving me compliments on how much it too made my eyes pop!
By the end of the night, I was a makeup warrior. Trying all kinds of new things. Now I love e.l.f.make- up even more and will definitely be doing some more "exploring" with colors.

The only downfall to the whole party was after we were all dolled up with makeup we had no where to go show it off!!  Although, it DID make me feel good when I came home and my daughter said, "Mommy, you look like a beautiful princess" and my hubby said, "you have make up on".   Well, At least he noticed! lol

Want to expose your friends to e.l.f cosmetics?  Try hosting a MUAH party?  Simply sign up at Shespeaks.com and make them aware of your desire to host a party.

Thanks e.l.f.

Holidays are Sneaking Up Fast
Holidays are Sneaking Up Fast
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 05, 2009

Prior to Halloween I was at Target and they had Christmas stuff, yes Christmas stuff! It’s hard to believe that the holidays will be here before we know it.  Another thing Target recently started carrying is e.l.f. cosmetics!  This value brand is at the same low price points as online without having to pay shipping!  I am all about getting quality products at super low prices!
Do you ever find yourself in a pinch for a quick gift for the dance teacher, piano teacher, mailwoman, grab bag, and so on?  Why not give them e.l.f. from Target!  Stock up on neutral shades of lip gloss, nail polish, eye shadow and mascara, buy a 12 pack of small gift bags for $1.99 and you can have a great gift for under $5! Some of my picks are the Brightening Eye Color in Nouveau Neutrals, Hypershine Gloss in Honey and Coral  Nail Polish .   I can’t wait to put my bags together for everyone on my list, who doesn’t love some pampering with new make-up.  I am also hoping to introduce e.l.f. to some people who may not know about them yet, I’m sure once I do they will love it as much as I do.

 Have you tried e.l.f.?  What are your favorite shades?
