Classic Red Lipstick is Always in Style

Red lipstick is a classic look that is always in style and can be worn by all women. The classis look of red lipstick will help you look glamorous and elegant and will really help you stand out. Because of this when wearing red on the lips you want to keep the rest of your look subtle and classic as well.

The secret to lucious red lips is finding the right color for you and getting the application right. To choose the correct shade for you consider the shape and size of your lips as well as the complexion of your skin. If you are fair skinned you can wear an intense cooler or pure red tone. for darker skin look for a lipstick with orange or brown undertones. If your skin has pinkish undertones look for something in a warm plum while yellowish undertones will look best with a warmer red again with brown undertones.

Once you have found the perfect shade you will want to have flawless aplication to allow your lips to look their best. If you have chapped or very dry lips you will want to prepare them by using an exfoliant and moisturizer like Satin Lips to smooth and soften before applying lipstick. This step will prevent flaking and will keep your lips soft and supple. Once your lips are in good shape begin by applying a good lip primer to retain moisture, help lipstick stay longer and prevent any feathering. Now you are ready to apply your lip color as follows:

1. Line the lips with a color that closely matches the lipstick color. If you want more intense color fill in lips with liner

2. Apply lipstick, preferrably with a lip brush, from center to edges

3. Blot lips with piece of tissue paper

4. Apply second layer of lipstick. this step will keep your lips looking luscious for hours

By following these steps you will be wearing the classic Red lip look and turning heads with your elegance and style!

Career Conference was Fantastic!

This weekend I was able to attend Mary Kay Career Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina and what a fantastic event it was.  I learned so much about value selling, setting goals and developing plans to achieve those goals.  I was energized seeing the women AND men who have achieved outstanding business milestones and shared their stories of success with us.  I also received lots of recognition for the things I have already accomplished and I am super motivated to achieve the rest of my goals by Seminar in July!

One of the highlights for me was the session on Team Building led by the the fabulous Elite Executive National Sales Director Gloria Mayfield Banks.  Gloria’s training always resonates well with me because like her I come from a corporate sales background so the skills and techniques she teaches are the same solid skills and value selling techniques I trained and used in the corporate world.  So often people don’t recognize that Mary Kay is a strong business built on the direct sales model and if you use proven value selling techniques you will be successful in this business just as you would in any other commission sales organization. 

Once you take away the emotion that often clouds judgement and views of this business and recognize it for the skin care and cosmetic commission sales business that it is you can see the potential and benefits of being in this business for yourself and having the earning potential of 50% commission with no cap and you setting your own quotas versus the imposed quotas, lower commissions and commission caps typical of corporate sales organizations, along with the flexibility to work your business when, where and how you want.   I can’t understand why any commission sales professional, especially anybody in a consultative sales role, would not jump at the opportunity to at least give it a try and see what kind of business they can build.   At $100 startup costs and 90% buy-back guarantee what have you really got to lose?

I am moving my business forward and plan to be a Sales Director and earn the use of a FREE Car by the time Seminar rolls around in July.  Will you be joining me?  I’d love to have you!

April Autism Awareness Month Fundraisers

As you all know, April is Autism Awareness Month and I am the Mom of a 6 year old girl with autism. In honor of that I am offering fundraising opportunities to anybody who is interested in raising money to support those touched by autism. If you book a Mary Kay party during the Month of April (Party does not have to be held in April) I will donate 40% of the Total Party sales to the autism charity of your choice.

If parties maybe aren’t your thing, I also offer a special Satin Hands Fundraiser year round which allows individuals or groups to take orders for the Award Winning Satin Hands Pampering Set and/or Customer Favorite Satin Lips kits and earn $15 per Satin Hands and $9 per Satin Lips Kit ordered for their charity.

Both of these fundraisers are very easy, fun, and generate great results. If you are interested in finding out more or getting your fundraiser started please contact me soon as spots are already filling up quickly.

Thank you for your support!
