I am passionate about Colour! You will be amazed how much a difference wearing the right colour will make to how you look and feel. I am sure you have encountered someone saying to you – you don’t look very well today – are you O.K? – and you are fine! I can guarantee it is the colour you are wearing – making you look tired and worn out.
First impressions are everything! How you look and present yourself can determine how you are perceived. Colour reflects the mood, can invoke emotions, feelings, and can give you a great emotional boost.! When you are feeling low – choose one of your best bright colours – and you will be amazed how this will give you a great pick- me up.
Have you ever wondered why Colour is so Important?
Imagine a world without colour – colour impacts our personal and business lives – colour also enriches our lives – Why?Colour is light reflected. Without light there could be no life.
Colour Communicates subconsciously. Do we sometimes take this powerful tool for granted?? The Psychology of colour can really assist you in many ways. in communication with others – you have a powerful asset to use consciously.
RED: Physically stimulating. Used when a visual impact is important. Creates an impression of physical strength – or it can be stressful and aggressive – Tip: Do not wear Red for a job interview!
BLUE: The colour of communication, soothing and calming. Intelligent, executive, responsible, self-reliant .
YELLOW: The colour of intellect, inspiring, uplifting, knowledge and wisdom. Focuses on the emotions.
GREEN: Center of the light spectrum, represents perfect balance. Presents no strain, is vital to life. We are refreshed and restored by spending time amid the greenery.
NAVY: You have chosen the colour that identifies as the wisest of all colours. You could be a judge, executive, or a business manager, for you enjoy decision-making. Being very wise, you show good judgment of character. People respect you for your intellect. You are the favorite suit of lawmakers.
BLACK: Black is powerful, black is mighty, but black can also be closed to light and openness. Sometimes black can be used for strength, sometimes for protection, but black can image a barrier between you and others. But if you’ve chosen black because of being despondent or down, open the door and let the sunshine and Colour in.
Did you know why Restaurants are often decorated in RED, YELLOW OR RED??? They are stimulant colours – so if you don’t want to overeat – don’t decorate your kitchen in these colours –
BLUE is an appetite suppressant !!

Glasses can be a Fashion Accessory, worn to create impact, but for many of us we actually need them to see… I believe choosing the right glasses is vitally important, you need to consider your face shape, the frames need to mirror your face shape. The color – are you a Warm or a Cool? A warm lady has yellow and gold undertone in her skin, a cool lady has pink and blue. So the color you choose needs to compliment your skin tone and your wardrobe colors. Consider if you want the glasses to dominate your look – or do you want people to see your face … with so many ladies the glasses are the first thing you see – not the person behind the lens .. think about this when making your choice. Here are some other useful Makeup tips for glasses wearers.
Glasses may be a cute accessory, but since most of us need them to actually see things, they are as essential to daily life as your cell phone. But unfortunately, they can bring attention to your dark circles and make other features disappear—not cool on days you can’t deal with contacts. Luckily, we have some genius tricks to minimize those annoying snafus.Do… Go heavy on the eyelid and top liner.
Here’s an easy rule of thumb: The thicker your frames, the thicker your liner should be. This will ensure your glasses don’t overpower your eyes. Keep dark makeup on top, and use white or nude liner along the lower inner rim to create a contrast that makes your eyes pop.
Don’t… Try falsies or eyelash extensions.
While we love a long lash, few things are more distracting than feeling like you’ve been poked in the eye each time you blink. Steer clear of anything that makes your lashes unnaturally long and make them hit your lenses. Instead, opt for thickening mascaras that have a similar effect but won’t cause a collision your specs.

A Lesson On Fresh Face No MakeupLook
When starting with your makeup application it is always good to have a check on your Hygiene tools – Spatulas, Sponges, Spoolies, Cotton Squares and Cotton Buds – so you are set to go!
Skin Care is a Top Priority
Skin care is a biggie for me, I always, always, always cleanse my skin at night, and after cleansing, I love taking the time to apply my Bontanicals Jojoba Anti-Ageing Serum and Bee Venom Mask, and Botanicals Eye Gel Serum to make sure my skin looks it’s very best. Your skin needs to be always hydrated, plumped and ready to accept makeup. Think of your skin round the eyes as the most finest linen – which needs to be cared for gently when you cleanse and apply your makeup. My product of choice is Botanicals Eye Gel Serum – 100% natural and gentle you will just ♥love this beautiful Gel.
Your skin needs to be hydrated, and night time is a great time to replenish the skin from the exposure and pollutants of the day – and allow your Beauty Products do their work while you sleep. That is why we call it “Beauty Sleep!”
This Is My Night Routine: Botanicals Cleansing Milk, ($51.90) Cleansing Toner, ($47.75) Jojoba Anti- Ageing Serum, ($39.95) Bee Venom Face Cream, ($78.95) Botanicals Eye Gel Serum. ($54.75)
Tone, and apply your JoJoba Anit-Ageing Serum (allow to absorb while having your breakfast!) then your Moisturiser of choice – mine is Beauty Bee Bee Venom Face Cream. ($78.95) 100% Gentle, 100% N.Z. Honey and Bee Venom, 100% Hand Made in N.Z. in small batches to ensure freshness, Not Tested on Animals.
Apply your moisturiser and allow to absorb prior to applying your Colour by Dezine BB Cream – What is a BB Cream?? BB (Beauty Balm) is an all-in-one moisturiser, primer, foundation and sun block and can be worn alone as a tinted moisturiser , or primer under foundation, and also under Mineral Foundation depending on the amount of coverage required. Part Skin Care, part makeup, 100% amazing! This lovely BB Cream is super hydrating protection with a sheer radiant coverage, provides a superior skin protection with a natural “No Make up” look. SPF 20. You can apply with Foundation brush or Latex Free Sponge. Colour by Dezine BB Cream ($72.90)
Not just on any blemishes, but under the eyes, try a dab of concealer on your eyelids (with your Latex Free Sponge), between your eyebrows, on any broken capillaries, underneath your nose and in the corners of your mouth. This will conceal redness and brighten your face in no time! Our Concealers are awesome – they just stay where you put – just pat on. ($37.85) Available in 3 shades.
Go easy on the powder – the key to the no – makeup makeup is being fresh faced – so putting on lots of powder will take away from that – however, our Mineral Powder is ideal, as you build the coverage you need – for this look – apply in the areas only you feel you need a little more coverage, or to take down too much shine. You will also have the added benefit of a SPF factor of 15 – 20 depending on how much you apply. Apply with Kabuki brush. Silky application that adheres to the skin giving you a spectular coverage without a “Powdered” look creating a flawless finish. Available in 3 Cool and 3 Warm Shades ($72.90 – Refills $46.90)
Brows are so important – it is like the “Picture Frame” to your eyes.. Applying our Brow Defining Powder with our Mini brush will give you a super effect – filling in any gaps, just apply in short feathery strokes to achieve a natural effect. (38.50) 5 Colours to choose from.
If you have eyebrows to tame – then the best choice is Brow Wax Splits – this compact gives you 1/2 wax and 1/2 brow defining powder. You just apply a little of the wax to the brows first to tame and then apply the powder – and WOW! All sorted. ($35.90)
We have a great choice for you when it comes to Blusher, shades are sorted into the Seasons, Summer, Winter, Spring and Autumn to make your selection easy. It comes in a handy Flip top compact. ($33.35). Or, the Blush Bouquets (Pictured Pink Carnation) in a larger compact which gives you a stunning swirl of colours, depending on your Season, Summer, Winter, Spring and Autumn ($58.00). The best tip for our No Makeup Makeup look is easy does it! – blend, blend, blend out the edges with your Mineral Powder.
For this look we need a Naked Palette – to use for your base all over the eyelid to create a Neutral eye all over the eyelid, using a shimmery nude colour on the lid we suggest for Summer: Pink Ice, Winter: Crush on You, Spring: Vanilla Ice, Autumn: Sugar Cane. Eye Shadows available in Flip Top Compact ($32.55) or handy refills that you can pop into our Refillable Magnetic Compacts that come in Mini ($29.90) and Large ($35.90) Refills ($17.50) – You choose your colours from a very wide selection that you will ♥
Summer: Nearly Taupe, Winter: Chocolate Kisses (Pictured Right) Spring: Toffee, Autumn: Autumn. Comes in a handy Flip Top Compact ($32.55) or Refill (17.50). Then we use a Brown Eyeliner (never black for this look). You have the choice of Liquid (with a very thin brush, so easy to use) For this look Cools: Brown. Warms: Autumn ($32.50). Or Eye Pencil Coco ($27.50). The Key Rule for makeup is that YOU MUST WEAR MASCARA if you wear eyeliner. Mascara ($36.90)
Though no-makeup makeup may not seem like the place for lipstick or gloss – but it is essential to finish this lovely look. Define your lipline- by adding a Neutral lipliner is a good start –
I recommend Cool: Pink Lady, Warm: Flesh ($27.50)
Then a light lipstick Cool: Pink Princess, Snob Appeal, Luna Rose, Gotcha – or for a completely nude look Intense Beige.
Warm: Simmering Peach, Dream Catcher, Intense Apricot, Oyster, Our lipsticks are super moisturising, super shiny and Paraben Free ($36.50). Lip Gloss Cool: Lilic Mist, Warm Peachy – Also we have Clear if you decide on just a sheer gloss ($28.50)
I know this sound a lot – but once you get into the swing of this look it will only take you 10 to 15 minutes to apply and achieve this Lovely Natural No Makeup Makeup! With our very special Natural by Dezine® Skin Care and Colour by Dezine® Cosmetics –
Enjoy! Be sure to send us a photo of your look for our Wall of Fame!

We all know it is important to drink water – and the increase of people walking round with water bottles is a sure indication that the message is getting through – but how much is enough? We have 14 signs for you to check out and see how you are ranking.
Also on the subject of water – do look after your health by getting a good quality stainless steel or metal water bottle – and don’t stick with the plastic bottles – two reasons… they are a massive pollutant and second most water bottles contain Bisphenol A (BPA) which can be a concern for some bottles made of polycarbonate (which shares resin identification code 7 with other plastics).
High temperatures and bleaching are believed to increase leaching of BPA] Several countries have banned the use of plastics containing BPA used for water and other food items. Also PLEASE DO NOT HEAT PLASTIC BABY BOTTLES IN THE MIRCROWAVE this can also cause leaching – please, always check the makeup of your bottles. P.S. Use a nice glass that helps to enjoy the experience!

Do you have age spots on your hands or body? These are very annoying – and I found this awesome Video from Dr Doug Willen to give you a simple solution to try.
Dr. Doug: “I was a pre-med student at Cornell University when I made a conscious decision to explore alternatives in personal growth and in healthcare, instead of moving forward into conventional medical education. My experience with a chiropractor in high school was one factor in my decision. Another was my long struggle with allergies and my growing disillusionment with the heavy pharmaceutical emphasis of the medical/allopathic model of disease treatment. I worked with alternative practitioners who employed thoughtful investigation into the cause of my allergies, rather than simply treating the symptoms, and helped me with natural solutions in a way that years of shots and drugs could do.”
We look forward to bringing you more Natural Health ideas from Dr Doug Willen.
