  • ZuZu Luxe: Creating a simple summer look

    Our friends at ZuZu Luxe love to offer tips for creating unique looks using their makeup. And we love that their cosmetics blend soothing, all-natural ingredients such as spring water, herbs, vitamins and exotic essential oils with sophisticated, fresh colors.

    Here's a few simple steps to creating the perfect summer look for daytime:

    Start with a neutral tone color all over the lid.

     Casino for fair skin  Eternity for medium skin  Chameleon for dark skin

    For a thicker lash line, line the eyes with a Tobacco eyeliner (for all skin tones) and follow up with your favorite ZuZu Luxe mascara.

    Summer look for night:

    It’s all in the eyes (of the beholder)! A top summer trend is brightly colored eyes.

    To create this look, use the following ZuZu Luxe eyeshadows:

    Absinthe (olive green
    with gold shimmer)
    Angel (lavender purple
    with gold shimmer)
    Skylar (sky blue
    with platinum shimmer)

    Speak with a Pharmaca esthetician to find out more about what ZuZu Luxe cosmetics can do for your summer look! Plus, they're 20% off this month! (Sale prices valid through August 30, 2011)

  • The shelflife of your cosmetics

    We just found this fascinating article on Mother Nature Network that talks about how long you should keep everything from mascara to blush brushes. A few especially interesting points:

    • Never keep mascara more than 6 months. (It's a haven for bacteria.)
    • Sharpen eye and lip pencils once a week to keep bacteria from building up.
    • Keeping lipstick in the refrigerator can extend its shelf life.

    If you've got old lipsticks lying around that could use some natural, non-toxic replacements, don't forget to bring them into a Pharmaca before March 1 to get $5 a new lipstick or gloss from Juice Beauty, Dr. Hauschka or Zuzu Luxe!
