My Day Job...

I have been doing hair since 1999. This is my day job, a hairstylist. I love what I do. I am not where I want to be in my life but surely I will get there. Hard work and dedication pays off.

I used Pravana in purple and Redken 4rv. She wanted a change so I gave it to her. She loved it and there goes another happy client. Connect with me on Facebook and also my hair IG gisell_hairstylist

It's Your Brush Love by IT Cosmetics

I love this cleaner. It cleans instantly. It is easy to use and I know you will love it.
How often do you clean your makeup brushes? Although this tends to be the one thing we most overlook, it is one of the most important things we can do! Bacteria and natural oils transmit onto your brushes every time they come in contact with your skin. And if you are using them on clients, you may be picking up germs and transferring them onto other people including you.
How is this cleanser different you might be asking yourself? Easy! Spray generously onto brush to dissolve any makeup. Gently wipe the brush onto the napkin. Dries quick in no more than 2minutes.  That simple!
What's your favorite brush cleanser?

I love to contour. I believe in because it does work.  For example: me. I have no cheekbones at all. I do have double chin and this works magic on me. I contour all my problems away and I highlight the parts I wish I had. That simple. Here is my results:

Bye Bye Pores Pressed Poreless Pressed Powder by IT Cosmetics
What it is: this product is a new take on it Cosmetics’ best-selling Bye Bye Pores, which is a translucent, loose formulation that works to prevent shine and visible pores. It’s a VERY fine milled silky-feeling powder.
My thoughts:
Pros • It blurs my pores and acne scars. Gives me a much ‘softer and flawless’ look. • You only need a little bit, just a light dusting. • It keeps my skin from getting super oily. • The compact has a mirror and a puff, perfect to blot on-the-go. • Just as good as the loose powder, just easier to use.
Cons • It leaves a slight white cast, especially noticeable in pictures. • If you use too much you end up with a chalky looking finish. • It changes the shade of my foundation a little bit (makes it slightly lighter especially on pictures).
My advice when using this new pressed version is not to use too much. It’s light and when used correctly it makes your foundation look flawless! My pores and acne-scars are a lot less visible. Plus, it keeps my oily t-zone under control. It gives me the same result as the loose powder, just a lot less messy! Use it gently around the hairline FYI.

My New Hair Cut

I want to share pictures of my new haircut. It is a bob, slightly longer on the sides. I cut off about 5 to 6 inches and most of my ombre was cut off. I am pleased to say that even with all that off the color still looks amazing.
I love it!

Fulom Penetrating Hydration

Moisturizing Face Cream
Extra Care Body Lotion
Cleanser for face and body

The cleanser is not only for your face but your body as well. I have tried other cleansers who have stated they are usable for face and body only to find it has been over-drying for my face. I have to be careful with scents and body shower gels tend to have fragrance and that is something I try to stay away from. The cleanser is very clean smelling. Foams up nicely and pretty much does its job. I have it stocked in my shower. Fulom Face and Body Cleanser rejuvenates the skin through a gentle cleansing process that hydrates and minimizes removal of skins natural oils. This is accomplished through use of mild soap agents, pH adjusted, humectants (maintains moisture) and organic fulvic acid. The simple light fragrance contained in the cleanser is refreshing and designed for the most sensitive skin.

The moisturizer I really like! Light, airy with a soft scent. Really nice in fact. It is really a light creamy moisturizer. My skin loves it! The moisturizer doesn’t have sunscreen which is a very important ingredient for me. Fulom Dry Skin Moisturizing Cream was developed to nurture dry skin and relieve itch through maximizing nutrient replacement as well as aid protecting exposed skin. A blend of ‘gentle skin’ ingredients and fulvic acid readily penetrates the skin without streaking or leaving an oily feeling.

The body lotion works fabulous on my skin. It is not heavy and does not have a sticky feel. Absorbs quickly and keeps your skin moisturize. I love it.

The whole product line would be great for someone with really dry skin! I use the body lotion on my hands all the time especially with my career as a hairstylist my hands is always in the water.

Give it a try and let me know how you like it.
