The secret behind Celebrities Glowing Skin

Have you ever looked at a photo of a celebrity and thought how does their skin look so PERFECT? Yes, some of it may be photo-shop, but that glow you see… that is a Spray Tan! A spray tan can make a dramatic difference in photos, and in person. Your skin tone will be even and glowing. Take a look at Blake Lively before, and after a Spray Tan! Blake-Lively-a61f2d19fd

Popular YouTubers and Instagram personalities also love themselves a good spray tan. When you are in front of the camera as much as they are, a spray tan is a major necessity. Most of the time weekly appointments are scheduled to maintain the glowing color.

Fortunately, people are choosing sprays overlaying in tanning beds these days, the smart ones are anyways! A large percentage of Tanning Beds give off significant amounts of UVA, which has been proven to increase the risks of skin cancer. UVB rays have slightly more energy than UVA rays. They can harm the cells’ DNA directly and are the main rays that cause sunburns. These rays y are what cause the most skin cancers.

Happy First Day of Summer!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you live in Florida than you have been feeling the summer heat for quite some time. Have you been going to the beach, pool, or on the lake? If you have then we highly suggest wearing sunscreen. The damages from the sun can be very dangerous, especially if not treated in a timely fashion. I hear you saying to yourself right now, but I want to be tan! Trust me, we all do. Although baking in the sun is not the way to do it. There are much safer alternatives that will give you that same healthy glow.

Here at Brushed Artistry, we specialize in natural, even, and evenly fading Spray Tans. We also have body contouring available to take your tan to the next level. With body contouring, you can not only give the appearance of a skinnier more flattering figure, but you can also accentuate muscles to make all that working out that you do even more noticeable. Can the sun do that? I didn’t think so. Take the healthy alternative way to get a tan, and save the skin you are in this summer! Your skin will thank you! Your golden summer tan is just a call away at 321-276-0863 for more info. We look forward to giving you the summer glow, that usually takes all summer to achieve!

New Year, New Tan Routine

spray-tan-vs-sun-tan-is-tanning-safe-at-all

I feel like this is the perfect time to talk about the ever so dangerous topic of Skin Cancer. An estimated 9,940 people died of melanoma in 2015. That is a pretty big number. As we know many of these cases could not have been avoided, due to lack of knowledge and studies about the subject. Although there could have been a few in there that could have been avoided, we will never know as it is just a statistic. Science has proven that overexposure to UV rays produces skin cancer in your cells. This does not mean you have to hide under an umbrella in a hazmat suit walking around all day outside. All this means is that you should be aware of the weather, and the activities that you are participating in. I ALWAYS wear sunscreen on my face. Every day, because this woman does NOT want wrinkles. That’s the other terrible thing about baking in the sun… the wrinkles.

Another important thing that EVERYONE needs to do, is to be checked regularly by a dermatologist. If you catch the precancerous cells early it will be much easier to treat. So go get tested!

Always remember though, just because you can’t bake in the sun does NOT mean you cannot be tan. I am here for all of your tanning needs, it requires no sweating, no sunburns, and no skin cancer. The answer is Spray Tanning, and I come right to you. The color always looks natural and fades evenly as a normal man would. Call me anytime if you are in Orlando for an Appointment at 321-276-0863, or e-mail me at info@brushedartistry.com if you are interested in purchasing a tan can (a great at home alternative.)

Hope everyone has a nice, and healthy new year!

How to keep your glow this holiday season!

Happy Holidays from Brushed Artistry

Holiday parties, events, and photos are soon approaching. If you are anything like me, I inhaled quite a few extra calories already over this past Thanksgiving weekend. From all the deserts, turkey, stuffing, potatoes, and so many more mouth-watering foods I just could not resist! Now I am right back into the busy holiday season, and just like many of you others out there the gym is the last place I have time to get to. Thankfully, there is a resolution to this problem. It is temporary, and by no means am I saying to drop your workout habits BUT if you get a pinch, and need that extra boost of color (and confidence) not only will a spray tan give you a slimmer appearance, there is also the magic of contouring.

bf728179af21352c7f53fca2e04af62d

To sum up contouring, I can give you the illusion that you went to the gym when well… you really did not. Nobody has to know that though, it will be our little secret 😉

96008bb0953e206a5f76cab432f7ecb4

Be sure to book ahead for any special events you have throughout the month. It is best to get the spray a day or two before the event. We do book up quickly so reserve your spot.

Also if you are someone who is loving your spray tans, and have a friend that you know would love them as well consider a Brushed Artistry gift certificate. The gift of an at home spray tan is one of the most original, luxurious gifts that they will never expect, but absolutely love. Ask your Spray Tan Artist about these at your next appointment.

To keep a consistent color during these colder months we recommend to book weekly or bi-weekly depending on your skin. Always be sure to exfoliate the old tan off completely before getting a new one. Our Dermasuri product works GREAT for this.

Let one of your errands come to you this Holiday season, and get your Spray Tan at home by the #1 Spray Tanning Company in Central Florida.

Happy Holidays!

Summer is gone, but that doesn’t mean your tan has to be!

ea550ef3d0bd4b8e514fd4bdf3b83393

It’s starting to get cold (unless you live in Florida) so those trips to the beach and pool have most likely trickled out of your schedule. Don’t let yourself get pasty white this year, and book Spray Tans instead! Spray tanning is a SAFE alternative compared to the harmful UV rays of tanning beds. You don’t want to look like a prune when you get older, do you? I did not think so… and neither do I! Make the safe choice, and trade the tanning bed for a Spray Tan. I guarantee you that your future self and your skin will thank you for it!

Now here are some tips to keep your spray tan looking flawless all winter.

Colder weather not only comes with coats, and pants. It also comes with dry skin. When spray tanning during these months you are going to want to keep your skin extra moisturized. Do not only moisturize after you have got sprayed but prep your skin before as well adding extra lotion the days leading up to your spray tan. Be sure that you are using a lotion that contains NO ALCOHOL and NO MINERAL OIL. These ingredients will work against your tan instead of with it, causing it to fade more rapidly, or even possibly fade unevenly. I love using coconut oil as a natural moisturizer, it works GREAT!

Another thing you want to be aware of in the winter is you are most likely not going to want to go as dark as you did during the summer. Not only will this look more natural, but your skin is most likely a lighter tone from not being in the sun. You always want to make sure to choose the right shade for the occasion.

I hope everyone had an amazing summer, but always remember just because the summer is over does not mean your tan has to be 😉

Applying Makeup Properly Without Ruining your Lash Extentions

FullSizeRender(2)

I have been holding off on posting this for quite some time now because honestly, I feel like it needs a video tutorial. I am going to do my best with what I have at the moment though, and try to explain in words how to properly apply makeup while wearing lash extensions. I have heard many people tell me lash extensions do not work for them due to the everyday makeup they use. This is NOT true. You just have to learn different techniques, that way to keep your new lash extensions untouched, and most importantly still on your face. I am going to explain step by step how I apply heavy makeup with extensions, these techniques have kept my extensions flawless, and absolutely stunning. These new techniques may get some getting used to, as you will have to step outside the box but I promise you that your lashes and a lash artist will thank you!

Step 1: Applying Eye Makeup

FullSizeRender(1)

When applying eye makeup the most important advice that I can give you is that you need to avoid touching the actual lashes with any tools that you are using to apply your makeup. I highly recommend using high-quality brushes (only due to the fact that they do not shed, and will not get stray hairs stuck in your lashes) , as these are the easiest to manipulate around the eye area. Also, a magnified mirror helps SO much, it is worth the investment.

  • Primer: When applying your eye shadow primer to your lids, tilt your head backward. Use a synthetic brush to apply the primer all over your lids, keeping your head tilted backward, and using the brush pointing downwards will avoid your lashes. Always be sure to be very gentle around your lash line. You can also use your fingers to apply this product by keeping your head tilted backward, and apply the product gently from your lids to your brow with your eyes closed.
  • Eye shadow:  After applying the primer be sure to set it with a bone, or natural colored shadow to make the blending process easier. Use a fluffy blending brush (example: Sigma E40) and tilt your head backward again, looking up towards the sky. Take your brush, and gently apply the shadow holding your brush in a downward angle away from your lashes blending from your lids to eyebrows. Do the same with the crease color, except to be sure to only keep the color in the crease I would use a pointed crease brush for this application (Example MAC 217). When you get to the lid color we will need to switch the technique a bit. To give a more defined lid you are going to want to tilt your head DOWN slightly, stretch your eyelids, and pull the outside skin of your lid slightly. This will make your lid flatter, and easier to get a defined look without touching your lashes. Using a flat shadow brush (Example: MAC 224) pack your lid color onto your lid with the brush still pointing downwards. Blend as necessary. IMG_4329
  • Eyeliner:  Did you know that when you are rocking your lash extensions you are not able to wear waterproof makeup products? I could hear some of you gasp at the sound of that all the way from across the internet! Thankfully there are many products available to you that are not only safe for your extensions but also help to improve the quality of your lashes. Ask your lash artist about these products at your next appointment. FullSizeRenderAnother trick I like to use (if I am going for a bold wing or a look with thicker liner) is that I will very thinly line my lash line with the Lash Food product, and then use my normal products on top of where I placed the thin line. I know everyone has their favorite eyeliners out there, and don’t think you have to give that up when you get your extensions. I also like to set my eyeliner with shadow, if you do not own any lash safe liner products you can always use the shadow to line your eyes near your lashes instead. Now when applying the eyeliner I like to use the same technique as i use while applying my lid. Tip your head downwards, and stretch out your eye to the side. Keep the product facing downwards, and away from your lashes.
  • Mascara: ALWAYS USE A MASCARA INTENDED TO USE WITH EYELASH EXTENSIONS, NEVER USE ANY OTHER KINDS OF MASCARA AS THEY COULD CAUSE CLUMPING, AND WILL DAMAGE YOUR EXTENSIONS.

Step 2: Foundation and Concealer

  • Foundation and Concealer: When applying your foundation be sure to stay away from your lashes, sometimes we do this step so quickly we are not aware that we may actually be getting makeup on the eyelash extensions them self.  I like to use a beauty blender or a small kabuki brush since they are both very precise.

                           Step 3: Eyebrows, Contouring, Blush, Bronzer, Highlighter,       Lipstick, and Setting Spray

  • When it comes to the finishing touches on your makeup, these things should not have much effect on your lashes. You can apply these products just as you would with your own natural lashes, as they stay clear of the lash area.

In a pinch for time? Use the Rapid Glow!

Want a Spray Tan, but do not have the time to sit around to wait for it to develop? Brushed Artistry offers a Rapid Tan! With a regular spray tan, you have to wait at least 8 hours to shower. With the Rapid, you can shower in as little as 2 hours depending on the darkness of the tan that you would like! This is a fantastic option for last minute tans, rainy days, last minute plans, and tanning emergencies. You know that 5-hour warning before you are told you have an event? We got you girls (or guys)! Our solution will leave your skin looking naturally bronzed. ALWAYS remember with these kinds of tans to keep an eye on the time.

The longer the solution is on your skin, the darker the tan will be. You will notice quite a bit of bronzer come off in your shower, but do not worry it is only the bronzer rinsing off, not your tan. Allow 24 hours for the skin to reach its peak level of darkness. Even after the solution is rinsed off, the tan will still continue to get darker on most skin types for the next 12-24 hours.
IMG_4212

Please keep in mind that all tanning solutions are different! Just because you rinsed with a certain companies Rapid in a certain amount of time does not mean you will get the same results with every rapid solution on the market. For our Brushed Artistry Rapid Glow, these are the times we recommend to rinse off for each level of darkness:

2 Hours for a LIGHT tan

4 Hours for a MEDIUM tan

6 Hours for a DARK tan

8 Hours for an EXTRA DARK  tan

Having a Rapid tan makes it easier to go about your day. It is much easier for you (or your client) to set aside 2-6 hours rather than 8.  Happy tanning, and hope everyone is having a great week!
