Completely Cosmetics (Introduction)


top_banner_aus_cosmetics

Australian consumers spend well over $20 million a year on cosmetics. Studies show that physical appearance plays an important part in our social interactions, interpersonal relations and job success.

Traditionally, cosmetics were used simply to beautify or decorate the skin.

Cosmetic counters are now stocked high with potions and creams that will rejuvenate our skin, prevent wrinkles or modify the ageing process.

Cosmetics have actually been used for over 4000 years! Greeks used lanolin (which is sheep’s wool) as a moisturizer in AD 100, Romans took milk baths and also used powder to make themselves whiter! Powder was also used in the Elizabethan era.

The purpose of cleansers is to remove dirt and makeup from the skin. There are three types of cleansers available. Soaps should not be used on the face, although soaps are very effective for cleaning the skin.

For example, you can use Neutrogena – Liquid Fresh Cleanser and Makeup remover.

My Mary Kay Blog


Mary-Kay-Logo-03

I am a Mary Kay fanatic, and I have been using the skincare and makeup for about several years. I was a consultant for a little while when I was 23-24, but never got around to hosting classes. I gained a lot of knowledge and absolutely loved the $5 book on how Mary Kay started her company. It was very inspirational. I still have the TimeWise collection for the face but don’t use it as often, as I keep to my daily ritual of Neutrogena cleanser and Sukin moisturiser, and it seems to be working for me! I like how Mary Kay likes to “THINK PINK“. I collected so much stuff from applying as a consultant, and LOVED all of the makeup. I used a lot of things as gifts as well and adored the packaging.

MARY KAY BOOK

With the products I used, I used a lot of pinks and browns as I always wanted to create a “natural day wear” look. I don’t know about you, but I love those two colours the MOST! Here is attached the CURRENT Catalogue of Mary Kay where you can explore what’s in at the moment with their makeup.
