Let’s talk Natural!

All of the most decadent runways featured this look for summer 2015, naturally gorgeous is the way to show off this sultry beach season! Last week we talked about the ease, beauty and coverage of mineral makeups, keeping up with the summer trend of easy, let’s talk natural.

Studio Makeup at Adamo
You already have the sun kissed glow, and I know you’ve been getting regular massages and facials, I’ve seen so many of you already this summer! The weather has been gorgeous and summery, the cool air of the spa has definitely been a lovely relief for all of us. All you need to dress up your look is a quick wash of color on your cheeks, line your eyes with a neutral color smudged gently under and above the lash line, and a swipe of a nude lipgloss or your favorite naked lipstick. BostonMints comes in over a dozen natural hues to tempt you…

Sunshine DaysSunny Day
Feel like that’s not enough color for you? Need a little more flair? Add that red lipstick that makes you swoon, keep the rest glowing and ethereal, and let your lips pop with color. If you are loving the sun kissed naked look, simply add something else. Accessorize ~ it can be a sparkly hair barrette, or those gladiator sandals that are too racy to be worn with eyelashes, you choose. Remember the rule, less is better. I offer personalized makeup lessons at Studio Makeup, we will consult with you about your specific needs, skin type and lifestyle. My clients are educated and satisfied, leaving the spa energized and enthusiastic to try new or classic makeup trends at home. Call today to schedule your personal session, be sure to ask about group rates for your next party or event! I look forward to seeing you in the spa.

With your girls…

Sitting down to write this, I can’t help but think about powerful female ballads. (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman by Aretha Franklin, Simply the Best by Tina Turner were the first two to pop in my head. The strong lyrics and the powerful and beautiful women that belt them out are enough to make me want to do something, tapping my feet is just the beginning! I’m thinking about some down and dirty, absolutely indulgent spa parties!

Find your best Combination!

On the go these days? I know we’ve certainly been busy here at the spa. Any free time I have, especially as a makeup artist, I don’t want to spend fussing too much over my face. Lately I’ve been packing along a compact with sheer minerals that I can just swoosh on, if I need to. Easy peasy, lip gloss and go!

on the run

Mineral makeup is easy to use, portable, affordable and good for your skin. Hypo-allergenic and Gluten Free makes it a win for normal, oily or sensitive skin. Mineral makeup can also be used as a sunscreen on your face, just be sure it has an SPF of 25 or above please. Our skin is our largest organ, and so beautiful when we take care of it properly.

Plum Island Sand

Located in Essex County, on the North Shore of Boston, Plum Island has been a favorite for families and and school trips for many years. The name Plum Island often conjures up images of picnics, fishing or walking on sandy beaches. Fruit possibly comes to mind also. The island was named for what was known as the beach plum, growing wild on the dunes over a hundred years ago. Today you’ll find boutiques, local eateries and Bed & Breakfasts to stay the night. At the southern end of the island is Sandy Point State Reservation, a day use only state park. You’ll find the last lighthouse on the island at the northern tip. Pack a picnic and a soft blanket and make a day of it. Watch the sunset and the boats pass into the evening. Don’t forget your bug spray though, you’ll surely regret it!

IMG_7833

I created the color Plum Island Sand with the beach dunes of Plum Island in mind. The color is sheer and cool, like the cold water that laps at the shores. BostonMints is an all natural product, created for my clients with the most distinctive and quality ingredients available. Vitamin C, E and Aloe Vera are essential to your lips health, a refreshing spearmint flavor keeps your lips cool and plump. Never tested on animals and also gluten free, it will suit even the most particular client. Order your BostonMints lip gloss today and be sure to check out other Summer Favorites, P-Town Pink, Vineyard Bluff and Mint-Ticket Red.

Coconut Oil and Hydration

We have all been hearing about the multiple fantastic benefits for our bodies by using Coconut Oil in the kitchen. It is known to have so many helpful and healing properties. I am so amazed at all of the healing and luxurious benefits coconut oil has on the outside of the body too. All of it, including your hair and scalp! Studies have shown that the hydration of the skins surface is improved and it helps smooth and heal extra rough patches; heels & elbows better than moisturizer.

BlendBeautifully_AdamoDaySpa

That’s precisely why it is a key ingredient in my newest BostonMints lip gloss colors, Back Bay Berry and STRONG. Smoothing, healing and hydrating, that’s the answer to beautiful luscious lips. Cocounut Oil also has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-bacterial properties. It is the product to keep in your bathroom cabinet for everyday access.

Cold pressed coconut oil melts easily between your hands or can be scooped into a warm bath for a luxurious full body moisturizing experience. You can use it as an under eye cream or a highlighter for your cheeks. It leaves your legs smooth as silk when used to shave with a traditional razor. I am sure once you start using coconut oil for some of your grooming needs, you’ll come up with lots of other ideas for this wonderful (and delicious) oil. Be sure to check out the my new colors full of the amazing benefits from coconut oil, also vitamin E & C with a pop of spearmint! Have a fantastic day, see you at Adamo!

Kiss and Makeup | PTown Pink

We all know the Pilgrims came onto land and settled in the coastal town of Plymouth. What we don’t always know is that the Pilgrims originally rolled into Provincetown Harbor first and had to hold firm for many weeks for safety and health reasons, before they decided to sail across and settle in Plymouth. Just like the Pilgrims, many people still believe the first stop for summer fun is in Provincetown. Known as P-Town to locals, it is located at the very tip of Cape Cod in Massachusetts.

PROVINCETOWN, MA - JUNE 19: Tranquil scene at Commercial Street on June 19, 2010 in Provincetown. Provincetown was the site of the first landing of Mayflower and is now a major travel destination.

PROVINCETOWN, MA – JUNE 19: Tranquil scene at Commercial Street on June 19, 2010 in Provincetown. Provincetown was the site of the first landing of Mayflower and is now a major travel destination.

A world wide tourist destination P-Town has it all. Magnificent beaches and glorious sand dunes for summer fun, water sports or just lounging under an umbrella reading a favorite book. Art galleries and eclectic boutiques line the cobblestone streets that fill with friends, families, and festivals for the best months of the year. Music can be heard while you stroll from the various outdoor lounges and award winning restaurants.

BostonMints P-Town Pink is the essential lip gloss that embodies everything that P-Town is. Dress this cool shimmery pink up with your nighttime glamour for any carnival, or simply swipe it on with your sunglasses and bathing suit in the morning. My lip glosses are designed to be long lasting, never sticky and always the healthiest choice for a supple, gorgeous smile. Made for layering and mixing and matching, it’s you’re most versatile tool in your makeup case. You can feel great knowing we never, ever test our products on animals and my formula of beneficial Vitamins and Aloe Vera, boosted with spearmint is always natural and Gluten Free.

Colorful You!

Do you know what colors look best on you? Most of us can simply look in our closet and see patterns of color or texture that works best for our bodies and skin. Neutrals, bold colors, all black? I never did wear that turquoise pantsuit… Why do our cosmetic cases become filled with random colors and textures that no matter how hard we try, they sink back to the bottom of the bag? Just like we do in fashion ladies, we need to choose the correct colors and textures that enhance the natural beauty and shapes of our faces.

La Isla Bonita

I’ve got a serious case of the eighties going through my mind and La Isla Bonita has been on loop since dinner.

BostonMints_Shells

In New England we are fortunate to have so many coastal towns to visit. Some of us venture up to Maine and New Hampshire. Others hit Newport, Rhode Island. Summers in Massachusetts take on as many different shades of color as the rocks that wash up on our shores.

Are you North Shore or South Shore? Cape Cod or Cape Anne? With so many top notch choices at our finger tips we typically become creatures of habit and stick with the destination filled with the most memories.

For many, the Islands call to them. Maybe you like to stroll Castle Island or run a trail race on Deer Island? If your island is of the Plum variety, you most likely own a pair of binoculars and enjoy watching the birds.

Then there are two. Two like no other place on earth. Like dueling pianos, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard each have their own variety of guests gathered around to eat, drink and be social. Both islands have a home town culture that seduces the average and not so average visitor, asking them to go steady.

The waves harmonize perfectly with each beach defining and redefining their shape; giving subtle nuances that make each island, as different as they are alike.

BostonMints has a color named for each of these Fraternal Twins; Mint Tucket Red and Vineyard Bluff.

Mint Tucket Red fits nicely in your basket while Vineyard Bluff goes well with a layer of Labrador. Never sticky or tacky and never ever tested on animals! Always Gluten free, paraben free, and lead free, it will be a go to favorite for your prettiest, plumpest lips. Check out and all my other colors in the collection today!
