Stop in and see Faces Beautiful whether in Connecticut or On-Line. It’s the place to "feel prettier".

Lumesh Blak Mascara

A night out on the town without my Lumesh Blak???.....I don't think so!!!  Ladies this is going to be your favorite accessory for day and night!!!  Have you ever been somehere you can't find a mirror but you need to put on some mascara, or you'd like to apply a fresh coat of lipstick, or need to fix that little bit of eyeliner you know you just wiped off when you rubbed your eyes, but you don't have a mirror?
Lumesh Blak mascara has a built in mirror for all those minor details you need to fix before your hot date!!  Having a mirror is good, having Lumesh mascara is great!  Not only does it have a mirror on the tube itself, but the mascara leaves your lashes long and lusciously black for a very flirty feel!  As a beauty insider I am always looking for convenience in beauty products and what good would it be if I didn't share it with all of you???

Susan Posnick Color Correct Stick

What to do? What to do? You go to touch up your makeup after lunching with your friends and you discoveran emerging blemish that is begging for recognition. We all know that some concealers are more obvious than the blemish they are covering up. Not Color Correct Sticks. They provide perfct coverage and will allow you to move on and obsess about something else.

Are you sure you want to delete the O and the R and the H?

We live in a world of acronyms. Or, call them monograms, if you like: DVD, IBM, LED, CVS, and on and on. Sign of the times: Quick. Portable. Condensed, Mysterious and Impersonal.  But, QED. That’s it.
            It’s tempting to continue the tradition. 9 out of 10 entrepreneurs choose to squeeze their titles into acronyms because it’s cool. Since there’s always room for another, welcome ORH.
            It’s specific and yet it’s an entire philosophy of life. Old Reliable Haircut. The acronym originated with Sara Barr, a stylist at FACES Beautiful in Westport, which, interestingly enough, just changed its name from Beautiful Faces, but that’s another story. 
            Sara has hundreds of clients, all ages, and all occupations. She says that she’s noticed that around 50ish, women seem wedded to the hairstyle, the clothes-style, and the make-up style they’ve had for years. It’s safe. It’s OK. But it’s boring. There’s no thrill anymore to looking in the mirror, there’s no tingling excitement to walking out of the salon.
Sara thinks that the current craze about age is awful. It’s made every line on a woman’s, or even a man’s, face a Grand Canyon of sunken hopes. “The avalanche of products that say they’ll help erase wrinkles eventually is kind of fanatic and confusing, don’t you think?” she says. (And, she works in an environment which is known for authentic skincare.)
If women would think of abandoning the ORH for something different, they wouldn’t obsess about wrinkles that much, she says. “It’s complicated. It’s emotional. It’s guilt. Leaving a hair stylist who’s been your confidante for ten or fifteen years is like a divorce. But that’s often the only way. Here’s what often happens: A woman who’s been getting an ORH for a long time sees a friend whose hair looks fantastic. That’s it.  The seed has been planted.  Maybe she can convince her tried-and-true stylist to experiment, but maybe not.” Big conflict.  Big choice.  Big, and better, change.
Often, something dramatic in a woman’s life has to happen to create the courage to try something really new. Lately, losing a job is a very effective motivator.
 It’s like that sentence in fortune cookies. “Changing your tresses is losing your stresses.”

Peter Thomas Roth "Lashes to Die For"

Are you one of those women that looks in the mirror and you’re never completely satisfied with your lashes no matter how much mascara you pile on???  Well not to worry ladies, I’ve got the perfect product for you …….Peter Thomas Roth’s “Lashes To Die For”!!! 

It’s like Latisse - I’m sure you have all heard of Latisse….  Well, “Lashes To Die For” works just as well and you don’t need a prescription.  It has a patent pending complex that helps to dramatically enhance the appearance of natural lash length, thickness and fullness.  It also strengthens, nourishes, and fortifies lashes to prevent breakage.  So all you have to do is apply a thin layer on your upper lid as close to the lash line as you can, as if you were applying liquid liner.  Do this every night before you go to bed and you will start to notice results within 2 to 4 weeks.  FYI ladies, this is not a permanent fix because as many of you may not know, lashes have a life cycle, which means your eyelashes shed and new ones regrow on average every 3 to 5 weeks, so the lashes you were born with are not the ones on your lids today! 

Girls, you’ve got to use it every day. It works and each tube is a 3 months supply.

Where do the “beautiful” people go?

This isn’t a trick question. Once you get all pretty, where do you go in Westport? You come in to FACES Beautiful, get a great hair style, an anti-aging facial, refresh your makeup, a new pair of sexy earrings – maybe even add lashes…. Now what? Where do you get to strut your stuff and show off all that beauty?

Well, this week on Thursday night, you should head right over to “The Barn” at the Westport Country Playhouse. And ladies, you should absolutely wear your dancing shoes. Great band, 3D-Ritmo de Vida plays hot salsa, jazz and soul. It’s a MIX event, hosted by Gene Seidman, a very cool Westporter. Gene has a new mission – and it’s all about us having fun! Got to love that.

A MIX night is an evening out that you do not want to miss.  You’re cool, you’re beautiful, so… you’ve got to be seen. MIX is about dancing, laughing, meeting people and just getting out on the dance floor.  Gene Seidman loves to dance, says his sister Kate taught him. He admits to perfecting his skills at “Studio 54”. I too, love dancing; honed my dancing at “The Pier” in Washington. Anyone, remember that place? Well, if you went to Maryland, GW or American in the late 70’s, early 80’s - then you no doubt saw me. So I feel I’m qualified to say that Gene Seidman knows how to throw a great dancing party. And, he’s a great dancer!
This isn’t his first MIX, but this one being at “The Barn”, I think it’s going to be the best. The band 3D is awesome. Both the drummer and the guitarist have performed with artists we all know and love – Kid Creole, Jennifer Lopez, Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston, and the Coconuts, just to name a few.

So join me and show all of Westport your beautiful face.
