Hey bellissima's! Today I'm using L'Oréal Tecni ART Soft Curls to style my hair. This product is a light weight aqua-mousse for bouncy curls. I like this product because it defines and hold my curls without leaving my hair feeling hard. After I wash my hair I comb it out and apply the product. I start with 2-3 pumps of mousse and run the product through my hair. Next I flip my head over and do the same process to the back that way I apply this product evenly. Then I take my hands to scrounge up my hair to help shape my curls and diffuse the hair with low heat for 10-15 minutes. You can also let your hair air-dry if you're in a rush. Either way you still get flawless curls! After using Tecni ART my curls are so soft and bouncy. I r...

Hi Bella's for the past two weeks I've been using Moroccan Oil Curl Cleansing Conditioner in the shower to cleanse and condition my curls. It's my "one hit wonder" one step process shampoo and conditioner. To apply curl cleansing conditioner take a quarter sized amount in the palm of your hand and start by massaging the product at the scalp and bringing it down to the ends of your hair. Distribute evenly and let the product absorb for 5 minutes to get the best results. I love this product because it saves me a lot of time in the shower and I know that my hair is just as clean and prepped for leave in products. It's gentle on my hair and the texture of the curl cleanse conditioner is putty like and airy allowing me to take a small amount ...

Bellissima's I am back! Today I'm going to do an inspired look by the lovely Kim Kardashian. Kim has worn the "wet look" multiple times, multiple ways and it is just super sleek and shiny. To achieve this suave look you are going to need L'Oreal's Wet Domination Extreme Splash and the Wet Domination Shower Shine. This high end look is effortless, chic and very wet. To get started you will need to blow dry your hair. Next you're going to tease the hair starting mid way through your sections combing it towards the scalp to give you some nice volume. Take the Extreme Splash within your fingertips and begin to work the product through your hair starting at the root to your desired stopping point. I like to start at the sides of my head and t...

I constantly crave change to my hair. I love experimenting with different colors and trying different hairstyles. But with all the chemicals and heat I've been applying to my hair I know I've got to repair it and treat it with care. I've heard great things about Truss so I wanted to see what the hype was about. I needed something to restore my curls and repair my dehydrated hair. I'm currently using Truss Professional products in between shampooing and conditioning. So after I shampoo I use Deluxe Prime. It's a primer that preps my hair to be conditioned and is infused protein to nourish my hair. I'm loving this product because it easily detangles my hair before I even touch the conditioner. Next I use the Miracle Mask. It's been softeni...

Fur

Hi Bellissima's, I hope you liked my product review on Fur. To recap, Fur Ingrown Concentrate is for the sensitive pubic area. This light weight oil is designed to care for ingrown hair as well as soothe and support skin healing. Fur is dermatologically and gynecologically tested. It's free of acids, alcohols, cortisones and has a natural fragrance. After we remove hair, we often experience a few stubborn hairs that don't grow back in the right direction and can be be painful and irritating. Applying Fur oil generously to the area and smoothening with finger daily will cure razor burn and will help release any hair lingering underneath the skin. This product is nice because it comes with an in shower exfoliating finger mitt to free those...

I'm so happy to talk about RevitaLash Cosmetics because it was founded by Dr. Michael Brinkenhoff. His wife Gayle was battling breast cancer and he wanted to help her feel beautiful through the whole fight. He made an eyelash conditioner for her and now has a whole line of products that revitalizes the natural beauty and inner spirit of all women! He also donates his funds to further research breast cancer and educational initiatives. How beautiful!

I used two of Michael and Gayle's products, the first being RivitaLash Defining Liner in the color "Raven". This eyeliner stands out from the rest because its consistency is so creamy and rich with color. The creme-gel formula with conditioners give a smooth and gentle application without ski...

Here I had the pleasure of wearing Bellissima by Ysabella, a beautiful liquid velvet lipstick called "Bridezilla". This lipstick is a beautiful deep rose color that applies wet and drys matte for a long lasting finish. It's velvety texture and angled lip brush make for easy application. My lips immediately felt so smooth and moisturized. I really like it's clear packaging because I can easily see what color I'm going to use. It is a neutral color can be worn as your natural everyday lippie or is bold enough to suit an evening outing. Despite the time of day, you're bound to be Bellissima!

Hi Bellissima's my name is Alyson Laliberte, a makeup artist based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I fell in love with the art after having my makeup professionally done for my maternity photo shoot. Determined to perfect my craft, I started purchasing the essentials (brushes, eye shadow palettes, lipsticks) and continued booking makeup appointments to learn from experienced artists. At home I would study by watching YouTube tutorials from various artists and practiced until I achieved the perfect looks. I was retaining helpful information but practicing on myself and others was the most effective way to learn. I became a valued customer at a cosmetic counter and formed a friendship with an artist named Jocelyn who saw potential in me as an...
