Whether you or your child is involved in cheer, dance or other competitive performing activities then you understand that using makeup that is bold, beautiful and can last through whatever you do is a necessity. With activities like cheerleading and dance, looking professional and being a standout is just as important as performing at the top of your game. And to help you look your best you need to rely on makeup that delivers real professional results. The BA STAR Eye Shadow Palette contains the colors necessary for your event.
My BA STAR Midnight Smoky Eye Shadow Palette colors included shimmery silvers, blue and smoldering black and a light highlighter to help create the perfect smoky eye. The shadows go on smooth and even without creasing, use a primer to brighten up the color. The colors are bold, strikingly beautiful.
What I like about this palette is that it comes with a double applicator--the usual sponge tip along with a bristle brush. Though I normally don't use sponge tips, I find that they are rather helpful at picking up the gel glitter. Good luck and hope you love it as much as I do. For more information visit their website at

This post contains more information for the Argan Oil used on the post prior to this one. Here is the link http://dramaandbeauty.blogspot.com/2014/04/moroccan-hammam-spa-kit-with-argan-oil.html
Argan oil is a rare and precious nectar from Morocco and has been a beauty secret passed down from mother to daughter for centuries. The past few years, this elixir with priceless virtues became a symbol of relaxation and beauty. It also became very popular, but be careful as many so-called 'Argan oil’ products do not actually contain any Argan oil or just very little amounts.
How can you recognize high quality Argan oil?
First, cosmetic Argan oil does not have a strong smell. Our Argan oil has a faint smell of nuts because it comes from the Argan almonds. Argan oil is often called liquid gold because it has a fine light gold color, which stays when the nuts have not been roasted for food use. If a strong or rancid odor is detected, it is a sign of oxidization, which can be caused by a bad extraction or conservation method. Argan oil is extracted from the kernels of the argan tree, which grows only in the southwest region of Morocco. Able to live up to 200 years, this tree makes us enjoy its virtues and wisdom. An argan tree produces about 100kg of almonds a year and the production of a liter of argan oil require about 80kg of fresh fruits and more than 12 hours of work. The extraction process is long and laborious, yet the reward that follows continues to fill us with its many benefits.
The harvest is done every year between June and August by simply picking up the fruits that have fallen on the ground. Then, they must dry in the sun for several weeks before the transformation process can begin. Women from the local cooperative are then responsible for removing the pulp of the fruit to then crack the nut inside. This nut is deemed to be sixteen times stronger than a hazelnut and can only be broken manually between two stones one by one to access the precious almonds hidden inside.
The process is only just starting. The almonds then need to be heated up for a few minutes in terracotta dishes and grounded with a grindstone to get a dough that will be essential in the making of argan oil. The real transformation starts now. Traditionally, patience was the key ingredient to obtain the precious liquid, as the dough needed to be triturated by hand for several hours non-stop until the very moment where the artisan added small amounts of warm water to release argan oil from the dough. Today, however, many use a process similar to the one used to extract olive oil: a cold-press method.
Forever present in the secret kit of Moroccan women, argan oil has long been the best ally for body care treatments to counteract the harmful effects of climate change and aging. It works wonders on wrinkles and dry skin, fights and reduces traces left by acne or chickenpox or other skin irritation or skin lesions such as stretch marks, cracks and minor burns. Cosmetic argan oil can be applied on both the skin and hair. Its virtues shall fight hair loss, eczema, dehydration and skin dryness.
Argan oil has proven very successful with Moroccan women who have been using it for centuries now for its cosmetic properties. Non-roasted argan oil has a honey color and is very rich in essential fatty acids, omega-6 and in vitamin E. The latter helps with hydration, preservation of skin elasticity, and nutrition. By restoring the hydrolipid film, argan oil manages to diminish premature aging of the skin and even has an anti-wrinkle effect. Its rich natural ingredients play an important role in the renewal of cells and increase cell’s nutrient intake, making it an ideal candidate for use in cosmetic products.
It is normally used in traditional hammams after a black soap treatment, a scrub with the Kessa glove, and a rassoul exfoliation. What makes argan oil so attractive is that it is great for the face, hair, body, and nails.
Argan oil is nourishing and revitalizing for the scalp: it restores shine, natural softness and the silky effect in the hair. Biological argan oil is your best ally to restore health and vigor in your rebellious, split or damaged hair.
- Apply argan oil along the entire length of damp hair and let it rest for about 30 minutes before washing it with shampoo and rinsing it thoroughly.
- If you have dandruffs, apply the oil on your head by giving yourself a light massage; this will prevent your skin from drying.
Argan oil, a rare and unique prosperity of nature, hydrates, revitalizes, softens, and protects the skin against drying out. Argan oil reduces chapping and cracking caused by the winter cold, but also prevents wrinkling. Thanks to its strong concentration in linoleic oil, argan oil cleans acne-prone skin and leaves it glowing and radiant. Its firming effect does wonder in case of loss of skin elasticity.
- In the morning, use argan oil by putting water in your hands and adding 3-4 drops of pure oil, and then rub your hands together to create hundreds of droplets. Apply on the face, neck, and body. Massage gently with circular movements to make the oil go in.
- At night, after cleaning your face with black soap, apply pure argan oil instead of your typical night cream.
Argan oil is rich in vitamin E, beta-carotene, linoleic acid, oleic acid, and many other nutrients that nourish skin and fortify soft and brittle nails. Argan oil has so many natural properties for the body that aside from protecting skin against external factors and preserving skin elasticity, it relieves joint pain. Finally, it is very popular for sumptuous argan oil massages.
- To hydrate the body properly, use argan oil by putting water in your hands and adding 3-4 drops of pure oil, and then rub your hands together to create hundreds of droplets. After your bath or shower, apply the oil all over the body and repeat as often as necessary to hydrate your body fully. Massage gently in circular motions to make the oil go in.
- For a royal massage, use argan oil instead of your regular massage oil, works wonder with hot stones massage
To strengthen your nails and make them less brittle, here is an easy homemade recipe. In a small bowl, pour about one tablespoon of lemon juice and one tablespoon of argan oil. Once the mixture is ready, wash your hands and soak your nails in for about 15 minutes. Generally, one treatment a week is enough, but you can repeat it every day if you do not get the desired result. You can reuse the solution for a whole week at most.

BLACKS SOAP is a natural emollient. As I explained above, it is used in conjunction with a Kessa glove clean and exfoliate the skin thoroughly. The black soap is made up from a paste of organic soil, olive pits, hash, olive oil and salt – this is a traditional Moroccan recipe. The Black Soap had an interesting, almost toffee-like look to it in the container and smelt strongly (but not unpleasantly) of eucalyptus oil. I spread it liberally over my skin in the shower. After approximately five minutes, I washed it off using the kessa glove to scrub away and remove any dead skin. My skin felt completely rejuvenated and soft.
The KESSA GLOVE is used to exfoliate your skin after the black soap rub down.
Once your skin has been prepared by the black soap, the RASSOUL can be applied to the body. It’s been hailed a god-send for sensitive skin and doesn’t contain any harsh ingredients. Instead of dispersing dirt like many products, Rassoul clay actually absorbs it. The Rassoul clay sported the same eucalyptus scent that the black soap did, but the texture was a lot more muddy. Rassoul clay is very much a multi-purpose product, as it can be used on the skin to soften it, on the face and in the hair. To use it, I scooped some from the tub and mixed it with water until it had a slightly more liquidy consistency.It’s recommended that you use it after the black soap, as it absorbs impurities from the skin and leaves it even softer. Personally, while I used it once or twice on my body, I found it wasn’t really necessary after the black soap treatment.
Most of you will be familiar with the wonders ARGAN OIL can do for your hair. However, it also contains restorative properties that can clear acne and strengthen nails. Applying it after the black soap and Rassoul treatment will invigorate and moisturize your skin.
The Morrocan Hammam kit is completely natural and 100% organic. The products don’t contain paraffin and are silicone-free, they’re also formulated without dyes, parabens or synthetic fragrances. The Morrocan Hammam company insists on non-polluting and recyclable packaging and the products are not tested on animals. It’s always nice to deal with ethical brands.
Going to a Spa can leave your pockets empty but with this kit and a little time its equivalent for much cheaper on your budget. Visit the Website for more info and to buy products.

Achieving younger looking skin as we age is a lot simpler and easier than you may think. Our skin has powerful, natural abilities to rejuvenate and restore itself. But when its natural protective barriers are compromised - by UV rays, environmental toxins, and, yes, chemicals found in most skin care products - it has to spend more time on repair than on rejuvenation. Skin ages faster. So, the first big step towards achieving youthful skin is to pre-emptively protect our skin's moisture barrier and, second, boost its rejuvenation cycle. Our products are designed to do just that.
Mirai’s breakthrough formulas target the transitioning skin care needs of women, to help reduce and prevent the signs of aging. Powered by active botanicals, and proven by the latest anti-aging science, Mirai empowers women with best skin care practices that help ensure beautiful, healthy skin that lasts a lifetime.
I love the way my skin feels after I use Mirai products. My skin is super soft all day long. Smooth like satin. I love it and I know you will too.
Body odor changes with age due to deteriorated antioxidant. Lipid acid from sebaceous glands get oxidized more easily, resulting in the production of Nonenal, an unpleasant, greasy, grassy odor.and is mainly detected in people 40 years and older. The cause of nonenal is deteriorated antioxidant, not increased sebum or sweat. In fact, many women experience changes in body odor during menopause. The source of female body odor from hormonal imbalances or maturing skin is the natural phenomenon called Nonenal, which results from oxidized fatty acids in our sebaceous glands. While Nonenal is familiar to physicians in Japan, it remains little known in the U.S.
Natural Persimmon extract from Japan eliminates aging odor, instantly and antioxidant Japanese Green Tea prevent body odor from occurring, all day long.
Coconut oils and natural foaming agents gently remove impurities without compromising the skin's natural protective barrier.
Rosemary and Aloe calm, smooth, and soften skin.
Silk Protein (sericin) helps reduce dark spots by inhibiting the spot-making enzyme, thyrosinase. As sericin's amino acid structure is very similar to the skin's natural moisturizing factor (NMF), it also works as a natural protective barrier.
As we age, our skin's natural antioxidant defenses weaken. Nonenal, an unsaturated aldehyde, is produced when the lipid acids in the sweat glands are oxidized. Natural Persimmon extract eliminates Nonenal instantly, Green Tea helps prevent Nonenal from occurring, and antioxidant Astaxanthin provides age-defying protection, all day long.
Our skin's natural antioxidant defenses weaken with age, and can result in the production of Nonenal, an unsaturated aldehyde. Changes in body odor during menopause can be attributed to Nonenal. As it cannot be eliminated with conventional soaps, you can be squeaky clean and still have Nonenal. Clinical studies show that our soap with Persimmon Extract eliminates Nonenal by 97% compared to only 35% by conventional soaps. Natural Persimmon Extract eliminates Nonenal instantly, and antioxidant Green Tea helps prevent Nonenal from occurring, all day long. In addition, Olive Oil provides a long-lasting shield of moisture to keep the skin smooth and supple.
