Like a Pro!

I love to get my makeup done when I’m going to an event, or if I have the urge to make a quick change when I’m out and about on a busy day. Walk through a Nordstrom or a Sephora anytime of day and you’ll see young and old women alike, sitting up neatly on a cosmetics stool, having pretty palettes applied to their faces. I like to watch anybody having mascara applied, we make crazy faces when we do it ourselves, never mind a stranger with great make up, coming at you with a black wand. I am a highly skilled and trained professional make up artist, I enjoy playing in the field too. I’m really just a girl who loves a tube of new lipstick and the crack of a fresh slick glossy mascara. Why do we sometimes need, and always love to get our makeup done?

Lets tackle the obvious first. Weddings, interviews, head shots and anywhere you may be in a photo album for the next 100 years, should be done by a pro. Absolutely, no questions asked. There are so many variables of photography that are easily taken care of by somebody trained. The reason, not the only reason obviously, all of those photos in the magazines look great – the models makeup was applied properly and professionally. She doesn’t have shadows in strange places and doesn’t have a shiny nose and red ears. When you know you have a big event or something extra special, just make an appointment, you’ll spare yourself the worry and you won’t regret it ever.

Did you know there is a spa in New York that you can sign up for a monthly club and get your makeup done as often as you want? Seriously, go in before work every day and have your makeup applied by a pro. They also have the same operation for blow outs and waxing. It’s brilliant in my eyes, and everybody is groomed properly. Realistically, not many women can spare the time daily, and while the cost is more than reasonable it won’t be happening for me anytime soon. The point is – it’s there, and successful. We feel more confident, successful and sexy when we look our best and freshest selves. That’s a fact.

At Studio Makeup I offer makeup services for all of your needs, daily if you’d like, but I would much rather teach you how to be daring and gorgeous on your own. You can schedule an application for a special event or a full session with consultation. application and education.

You'll be a PRO!

Rowe’s Wharf? I say Rose Wharf!

Looking for something to do over the weekend or maybe on a weeknight for something to mix up the work week? Take yourself right down to Rowe’s Wharf in our states diverse and swanky capitol. The wharf was built in 1987 and is anchored by the now iconic Boston Harbor Hotel, it’s giant arch encompassing the harbor, for locals and travelers to enjoy. There is a busy marina, with fast and easy boat travel to Hingham and Logan International Airport. Boutiques bustle with the foot traffic of summer weather. It’s not always fun to walk around in the cold winter months. Have a afternoon cocktail, splurge on sunshine and the beauty of window boxes overflowing with flowers, next to our famous Boston Landmarks.

Boston Harbor Rowes Whart

I thoughtfully created the BostonMints lipgloss color Rose Wharf, after I spent a weekend at the gorgeous hotel and was taking an early morning walk while the city was still quiet.The blush pink flowers were still moist from sunrise and the color was stunning. I knew Rose Wharf would be the iconic sheer blush pink you could swipe on your lips. Sheer and cool naturally or layered with a lipstick for depth and an extra punch.

BostonMints lipgloss is the everyday lip product you need in your bag. Find your perfect color, or mix and match with 16 gorgeous naturally good for you shades. Vitamins E & C, Aloe and Spearmint for extra plumping and freshness keep your lips in top shape.

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.

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.

BostonMints Back Bay BerryIMG_7407

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!

The Color of Love

The Swan Boats in Boston Common conjure up thoughts of happy little children, blush pink tulips and lovely white feathered birds floating alongside a tradition that has held strong for over a hundred years. In 1877 with the popularity of bicycles riding through the park, Robert Paget and others developed a catamaran with a big white Swan as housing to hide the captain peddling the paddles. The boats have changed little, it continues to be a local family tradition that captures the hearts of many.

Teen Time!

Remember playing with your first tube of lipstick? Practicing your pucker in the mirror and trying not to break the soft creamy point of color off of the tube. Eyeliner may have been the trickiest of the bunch. Should I put it on top, bottom, both or should I skip it altogether? As an adult I still love to experiment with makeup and I know for a fact the average woman is still questioning her makeup options, never mind her daughters!

studiomakeup.joanneilacqua1

I have created a Teen Makeup lesson and application as a healthy beginning and education on beautiful natural makeup for your teen. Bring in your daughters, nieces and friends; help them get started with healthy & modern beauty habits. (ages 10-16) We are all familiar with a little goes a long way ~ as a rule, a professional makeup artist can teach that habit and make it fabulous. The best part is I can teach your girls how to do it themselves. One of the best rewards I receive as a makeup artist, is seeing the natural confidence of a young lady. It certainly doesn’t take the same application of cosmetics or even the same products for that matter, as it does for a woman who has decades under her belt. There are lots of fun summer trends, along with classic tried and true that can easily be worked into a regular or special event routine.

Special events; proms, parties and wedding, are always fun for a first professional makeup appointment, you certainly don’t need a special occasion to take advantage of this fantastic service! Call ahead for your private session or ask about bringing in a group of girls as an occasion in itself! Don’t forget VIP Spa members always get extra perks! See you soon!

Together we planted 864 Trees!

FORESTS FOR THE FUTURE

Every time you purchased Éminence retail products at Adamo Day Spa, a tree has been donated and planted in developing countries.

Together Adamo Day Spa and our Guests have partnered with Eminence Organic Skin Care to plant 864 trees to date. Thank you!

Our ongoing partnership with Éminence allows us to maintain our commitment to the award-winning global tree planting organization Trees for the Future, planting trees in 19 developing countries throughout the world including Burundi, Uganda, Ghana and Tanzania. In Africa, agroforestry provides families with the education and tools to create their own tree nurseries. The profits allow them to support their basic needs, while also benefitting the environment and fighting deforestation.

LET’S TALK ABOUT THE POWER OF A SINGLE TREE:

•  Produces approximately 260 pounds of oxygen per year
•  Absorbs as much carbon in a year as a car produces driving 26,000 miles
•  Helps lower air temperature and helps combat climate change
•  Stabilizes the soil and prevents wind and soil erosion through its roots
•  Contributes to the fertility of land through nitrogen fixation and increasing water penetration

Adamo Day Spa is so proud to be a part of this program that has contributed 3,000,000 + Trees to the Earth! Love, Joanne
