One of the reasons that I LOVE the Holidays, is it’s an excuse to experiment with makeup a bit more than I normally would. Especially the eyes! Nothing says the holidays quite like glitter 😉
One of the best things I have had happened in my career is meeting other beauty professionals. I am fortunate to have made friends all over the WORLD with some of THE most talented individuals out there. Aligning yourself with others in your profession is […]
One of the best parts of the holiday season is the little things, like stocking stuffers! (Especially beauty stocking stuffers!) Fortunately, beauty supplies come in small but mighty packages. I’ve put together a list of some trending products and trinkets for you to add to the stockings of EVERYONE on your list! Read ahead for some fabulous beauty stocking stuffers.
Crafted of porous lava rock to capture and carry the scent of therapeutic essential oils, the Aromatherapy Bracelet allows you to enjoy aromatherapy on the go. Simply add essential oil to the lava rocks and allow to dry.
There are many different styles and prices to choose from. You can find my list of favorites by clicking here.
Pair it with the Royal Spa Essential Oils Set and you will be giving her a gift she’ll be sure to LOVE!
Jade rollers are trending! These little powerhouses are insta-friendly. They de-puff your face in seconds. They’re a quick, easy cure for daily skincare struggles like dark under-eye circles and puffiness from fatigue. The increase in circulation can also help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. I recommend it with Lumière de Vie Eye Balm & Lumiere De Vie Serum Concentrate (which also make great stocking stuffers *hint hint*)

Cellular Laboratories® De-Aging Lifting Facial Sheet Masque
Sheet masks are all of the rage right now! Over time, skin begins to lose the integrity it once knew when younger. Pores enlarge, wrinkles and fine lines deepen. The more makeup and debris that build up, the quicker these signs of aging appear. Deep clean and lessen the effects of these age-telling signs with a masque. Pull out debris with an anti-aging formula. Work to maintain smooth skin and lessen the appearance of wrinkles by using Cellular Laboratories.
Revolutionary, purifying sheet masque helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, promotes normal circulation and promotes softer skin texture overnight. Infused with Matrixyl® 3000 — which supports normal collagen production, and supports natural skin structure as it lifts, firms, brightens and hydrates distressed skin, restoring that youthful-looking glow.
Treat them (or yourself) to this calming sheet masque. Restore your glow and youthful complexion as the masque penetrates the layers of the skin. Recommended to be used two to three times per week and convenient for travel, this small pouch packs a large punch. Skin needs special attention for the abuse it endures throughout everyday activity.

I am so excited to invite you to join Motives Director of Field Development Lisa Martin on Monday October 22nd, 2018 for an exclusive interview with Motives Creator, Loren Ridinger as she shares the story behind the brand and the vision for where it’s headed. […]
October is all about men’s skincare, I am talking about four must have men’s skincare products to nourish your skin this fall.
Is men’s skin really that different than a women’s? If you read my article 3 Simple Skincare Steps For Every Man, then you know the answer!
What I really find interesting, is I recently decided to poll my audience on Facebook asking the question “Does your man know how to take care of his skin?” and 85% voted that their man has NO idea! I decided this was something that I needed to change…
Now if you know anything about me, I have been a cosmetologist for a couple decades, so I just may know a little about tis subject. But I will admit, that when it comes to the men in my life (my husband and children) they aren’t the best at this subject. So I did what anyone would do, I decided to do a Facebook LIVE video interviewing my husband on, you guessed it, men’s skincare!! My husband was a trooper, especially since this was his FIRST LIVE VIDEO!! I know, I know, but the timing was impeccable! He just tuned 50, AND he’s starting to realize that he should start using things that will improve his skin. Not to mention, I just launched a new men’s skincare line Lumiere de Vie Hommes. If you missed the video, catch it here 🙂
Now that we have all of that settled, where should men start? My thought is, let’s start simple. It honestly doesn’t take much time to incorporate just a few steps into your routine. But it is important for men to use the right products. Men’s skin is very different than women’s and so it only makes sense to have special formulations made just for men.
4 Must Have Skincare Products
A cleansing gel that effectively eliminates dirt and excess oil for clean, shave-ready skin. Designed for the modern man, the creamy lather gently cleanses and preps the skin for a comfortable shave, while cucumber extract awakens the senses.

A lightweight oil that conditions and smooths facial hair for a softer, more manageable beard.

Tame and condition facial hair with Lumière de Vie Hommes Conditioning Beard Elixir.

What do real men have to say?
“I love the men’s line it made my beard a significant amount softer and my face feels a whole lot smoother. I will definitely be continuing to use these products.”
“I have never wanted to use skincare even though my wife has always tried to convince me to. There have been quite a few
wasted products that she has bought me over the years that sat in the bathroom cabinet. Nothing ever looked masculine so I felt like I was just using her skincare. I love the new Lumiere Men’s line. It feels light and smells fresh. None of the scents from the products interfere with my cologne too, which is a bonus. I love the moisturizer it makes my skin feel nice without feeling like I have anything on. I like the beard elixir at night to moisturize my beard while I sleep. It helps keep it from feeling dry and brittle. If I have any left on my hands in the mornings, I rub it on my tattoos because it makes them look good.”
I absolutely love the cleanser it smells great and I really feel like it has helped manage my oily skin in the last seven days of using it.
I can not say enough about the aloe moisturizer in 7 days it has become my favorite moisturizer we have between all the lines!! My skin is drastically softer, more hydrated throughout the day and it smells soooo good (in a manly way lol)
Let’s talk about the beard elixir… I am subscribed to the Dollar Beard Club, so every month a pay $7 for a beard balm and oil that I have to brush into my beard to keep it luscious (😂😂)… on the first day of using the beard elixir I canceled my subscription… it is that amazing!! My beard feels really conditioned without being oily and having a strong smell all day. If you know someone who has a beard I’m telling you they have heard of dollar beard club and they are probably subscribed… what we have is 100x better in every way and it’s not oily which was one thing I was so happy about.
I absolutely love the line!! I hope we get more products for this line because I am 100% SOLD !!”
September was dedicated to the #beautyboss and I had fun celebrating all the boss babes that I am fortunate to have in our #Motivestribe! Last weekend the Motives Beauty & Business Academy took me to Vegas and how fitting is it that I had the […]
