Tis The Season To be Jolly =)

December 19, 2009

The Holidays are here and everything seems be decorated in red! But if there is one thing this holiday season that I don’t want even a touch of redness on is my face! RIGHT YOU GUYS! =)

Well I’m sure you have all heard of colour correctors. They have everything from spot treatment to an all over application. They come in all sorts of colours and uses. I would have to say that covering up that annoying little red spot, or your constant flushed cheeks is defiantly always on our facial do to list!

GUESS WHAT! =) uh huh that’s right, another Jo.Ritaaa approved product! While at the IMATS I picked up this nifty little product that was actually recommend to me by one of my fellow classmates. It’s by Yaby Cosmectics and is an all over colour corrector.

I have tried it out a couple times on myself and on some of my clients. What I love about it is that you simply mix it in with you first coat of foundation, sooooo easy you guys! The best part is that it works!

While in school and even when doing clients I sometimes find that it is safe to go with an all over corrector. They work wonders on clients who always have a flushes completion, and they will love you for it!


If you have any all over correctors that do need you to take that extra step for mixing. It always helps to have a little container for your mixing. Remember ladies that less is always more. When I use my Yaby colour corrector I always use a tiny bit of it and mix it in with about a quarter size of foundation, if I feel the redness is still there or I have more area to cover I will mix more. It’s always better to have to make more then to waste product!

Have a safe and happy holiday season you guys!

In regards to my post on the Ardell lash accelerator.

Sfoss said... Sounds good, I think I might try this.Follow up question: I kind of want more dramatic lashes for everyday. Right now I’m using kiss me mascara, but it doesn't feel dramatic enough for me lol.. Can u recommend me a product miss makeup artist?? What kind of mascara do you use?

Jo.Ritaaa: To be honest with you I myself have not tried Kiss Me mascara, but I’ll add it to my list of things to try out! Thanks for the suggestion =).I have a three steps mascara application process that paired with the Brow & Lash Growth Accelerator by Ardell that works wonders! Also when I was at the IMATS I picked up a product that instantly creates a false lash effect without having fake lashes on!

*SIGH* =)

Happy December =)

As promised, I will be talking about one of my new products that I picked up at the IMATS, and of course it has to do with lashes. Lol. I just can’t help myself, I have an addiction.

While I was walking around checking out the exhibit booths I came across Alcone’s booth. They had all sorts of products, there famous facial wipes (I was SO tempted but on a budget), eye lash curlers, eye shadows, mascara and much more. I swear there was a tinkle in my eye as I went to pick up the pretty silver container of mascara. Immediately after reading the title I went into a state of anticipation. The product is called “FAST LASH”.

Here’s the deal. Fast Lash is a product that claims to make it look as though you are wearing false lashes even though you aren’t. Awesome right!? Of course I couldn’t say no. I began to read the beautiful silver container and it read.

“False eyelash effect in seconds! Apply mascara. While wet, apply FASTLASH. Repeat process until desired length is achieved. For a glamorous lash effect, apply FAST LASH only to outside tip and feather toward the middle.”

Now I know what you’re wondering. Does it work? YES YES YES! =) I defiantly tested it out, and here is how I did. I would apply one layer of mascara to my left eye and on the right I would apply mascara and then FAST LASH. I tested it out with 3 coats. The results were dramatic and unbelievable.

The best part is that my mother came into my room, had a whole conversation with me then told me that I looked silly with one false lash on! =)

QUICK TIP =) Now it can be a bit messy and wasteful. If you keep sticking the wand back into the product you will lose a lot of fibres, I like to use a reusable mascara wand. One dip into the product should be good for about 2 coats on each eye.
