Five NEW products! Girls weekend at Duck Creek!

All available now!

This is an amazing product!  I will admit, I have gotten lazier about washing my face the older I have gotten.  AWAKE has helped me get back on the band wagon of washing my face more regularly!  I love EVERYTHING about it.  First of all, I love its gorgeous grey, pearly color.  The scent is so fresh and I saw someone post today that they wish it was a perfume!  That is how much they love the smell!  It contains Garden Chrysanthemum, Aloe Vera, and Licorice Root.  One Presenter claims that having used it since Aug. has significantly reduced the dark circles under her eyes.  How cool is that?  To use, you gently massage it onto a dampened face to create a lather.  Use soft circular motions all over the face for 60 seconds, then rinse clean with warm water.  For optimal results, use morning and night.  

So this is so cool!  It is an awesome product and a beautiful one!  It is a moisturizer unlike you have ever seen or used before.  It is a gel moisturizer.  It has little moisturizing beads in it.  One Presenter counted the beads and it will last you 17 weeks!  That is a long time!  It is made with Natural Silver, Ginseng, and Powder from Fresh Water Pearls.  It comes with this adorable, delicate little spatula like spoon to dispense Brilliant.  It feels great on my face and is very organic smelling.  

Refreshed is probably one of my very favorites!  It is Rose Water and boy do I love it!  First of all, it is a gorgeous product.  I like to leave it sitting out, not hidden away!  It is too pretty to hide!

  What is Rose water?? It's a natural skin toner because it absorbs oil without drying out the skin. Natural astringent tightens pores and prevent wrinkles. Reduces the appearance of fine lines. Balances pH in the skin controlling both oily and dry skin and Can help with many types of dermatitis. Rose Water has antibacterial properties so helps fight against pimples and blackheads. Apply to a cotton ball and rub around eyes, temples and forehead to help get rid of headaches. Use Rose Water to treat sunburns! Can also be used to soothe skin after shaving. There's a laundry list of uses for this amazing stuff. It's loaded with vitamins A and C and antioxidants!

Lucrative Lip gloss available in 10 Phenomenal colors!  
I LOVE that is is not sticky!
I LOVE that is it true to color!
I LOVE the brush you use to apply the lipgloss!  
I LOVE the black case you get it you purchase all ten!


Where has BB CREAM been all my life?  It is the coolest!  It is tinted moisturizer.  It has SPF in it which we all should be aware of and using on a daily basis.  BB Cream is the eraser that fixes all my mistakes!  It is available in 3 shades.  For my skin, I like the medium and light shades.  I use the lightest shade after I have done my eyes and before I have done my face.  I use the Younique make-up brush call the Liner Brush so I can get a nice clean line under my (or my clients) lower lash line, beneath my eye liner.  Some people like to use BB Cream as their liquid foundation.  It isn't as heavy and that is one reason I love it.  People with dryer skin need a liquid foundation or BB Cream.  People with oilier skin need more of a powder, like our mineral concealer.  


I mixed a little business with pleasure because I love what I do!  I asked if any of the girls that went our girls trip would let me practice on their faces.  I had 3 models, they were awesome and I think their make-overs turned out gorgeous!  Thanks ladies!  

We used:  SEXY, 
and DEVIOUS.  WE also
 and on her
lips we used LUCKY. 
Don't forget
the 3D Fiber Lashes!  

This was super fun because Tiffany doesn't wear a lot of make-up usually.  She sent her hubby a picture of her make-up all done and he LOVED it!  We actually did her make-up twice...she couldn't go home without it now could she?  We used FLIRTY, REGAL, CURIOUS, SEXY, and DEVIOUS.  We also used FRIVILOUS and LUXE for her lips.  And last but not least, our 3D Fiber Lashes.  

On this look we used 
DARING, and DEVIOUS.  She LOVED what we 
did!  I have the funnest job ever!  


On Rachel we used 
On her face, we used FRIVILOUS and
we used Livid.  Doesn't she have gorgeous eyes?

These pictures of us at Duck Creek were taken by Tiffany Doerr.  She is a very talented photographer and her specialty is temples and it's architecture to make letters.  You totally have to check out her website! Her business is called inspired creations for you! I just ordered a custom picture for my nephew and his bride to be.  Her work makes great gifts.  I can't wait to see it all finished! 

I asked the girls for some dinner ideas.  Here are a few that I thought I would shard.  This first one is from Robin.  Am so excited to try it!  

Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup in the Slow Cooker (or on the stove-top)

Marianne is who invited us all to the cabin.  She is truly one of the best and skinniest cooks I know!  She made this salad and I had it for three different meals, I think!  Notice her last comment...she is such a doll.  I love her and am honored to call her my friend.
