Prescription for Flawless Skin


Foundation is as vital to skin care as the cleanser and moisturizer you use.  Foundation should add just enough emollient to leave the skin dewy when used in conjunction with products worn underneath your makeup.  Prescribing a different foundation for oily, dry and sensitive skin may sound daunting but an improper makeup selection can result in trouble. Too little emollient leaves skin dry and at risk for sensitization.  Too much emollient causes makeup to melt and slip off the skin.  Once you have established the necessary emollient content, make sure the product is non-comedogenic (will not clog pores), especially for those with oily or acneic skin.  When working with oily or congested skin types, steer clear of D & C red dyes, isopropyl isostearate and isopropyl myristate.  When working with sensitive skin, steer clear of fragrances such as bensyl benzoate, geraniol or isoeugenol.  

Keep in mind that ingredients that damage one person’s skin my benefit another’s.  One kind of foundation does not fit each individual skin type.  

If you are in doubt of the makeup you are using today, ask you Esthetician for her expertise.  You and your skin will be glad you did!

Let the games begin!


Wedding season is in full swing and I am so proud to say that we have gotten 8 new brides within the past 7 days!  I often get asked by brides-to-be, “When is a good time to book and when should I do a trial?”  The answer is easy…as soon as you can!

Trials are not required but recommended.  Some brides who know of Team Beauti’s talent and professionalism will not hesitate to put down a deposit to save the date.  Other brides will  do a trial run and then book us.  Either way is great!  We typically get bookings up to 8 months out, sometimes a year.  Because the most popular wedding day of the year is Saturday (and there only being 52 of them) they fill up very fast.  If you are considering having your hair and/or makeup done professionally on the biggest day of your life, let Team Beauti do their magic…you’ll be glad you did!
