Mirabella Beauty Launches Faerie for Holiday

faerie-collectionMirabella Beauty releases Faerie, a luxurious limited edition four-piece collection that includes a long-lasting eyeshadow, a mineral-based highlighter and two high-shine lip gloss shades to create a romantic, ethereal, shimmery look for the holiday season.

“The holidays are a time when women embrace a more glamorous look,” says Amber Bowen, Mirabella Creative Director. “When the four Faerie products are paired together the result is a soft, beautiful look that’s universally flattering. Faerie features a neutral palette of pinks and browns that is accentuated with subtle shimmer and sheen for eyes, face and lips to create a youthful glow. Plus, the colors and formulas were developed with those hectic days of work, shopping and holiday parties in mind. They are long-lasting for day to night wear.”

Myth Visionary Long-wearing Eyeshadow features a bronze hue with reddish brown undertones that flatters all skin tones. Its creamy, silky texture sets to a satin matte powder finish for easy application and rich, buildable color.

High elastomeric powders help mask wrinkles with an optical blurring effect.

Back by popular demand, Mirabella Beauty is relaunching Swirling Pearl Brilliant, a mineral-based highlighter with Prismatech technology — combining all the best features of baked, fluid and cream products for a soft, long-lasting texture that gives skin the perfect highlight. Two new Colour Luxe Lip Gloss shades Gossamer (soft pink) and Luminosity (clear sparkle) offer three-dimensional, light reflecting pearls and a moisturizing, vitamin-enriched formula with anti-aging peptides.

Beginning November 2014, Faerie will be available at professional salons and on mirabellabeauty.com. Myth Visionary Long-wearing Eyeshadow retails for $29, Swirling Pearl Brilliant for $40 and Color Luxe Lip Gloss in Gossamer and Luminosity for $26 each.

3 Quick Tips to Clean Up After a Workout Without a Shower

When you want to sneak in a workout in between work and other commitments sometimes there’s not enough time to get cleaned up after. If you find yourself in a time crunch leaving you no time for a shower after the gym, fitness coach Nadia Murdock has a few quick and easy ways you can clean up and feel refreshed after a workout.

Dry Shampoo: Is a great way to revive limp hair that might have lost its bounce and body due to perspiration. Make sure to part your hair into sections and spray directly on the scalp, this will help give the roots a “lift”. Give a light massage and style as desired.

Body Wipes: Let’s face it you are going to want to save the intense workouts for when you have more time to take a proper shower. However for activities that give you a light glisten you can use deodorant wipes or baby wipes that will leave you feeling freshened up!

Body Spray: Perfumes can be too heavy and overpowering, find the right body spray that offers a light shower fresh scent. Try scents like Lavender, Clean Cotton or Vanilla!

Nadia Murdock is not only an author, regularly on-air health expert and a nationally recognized fitness coach, she is living proof that her “train your mind, change your body” method works. At the end of this month she’s launching her Mind and Body Makeover Program at 15% off. Learn more at www.nadiamurdockfit.com.

Do What You Love: The Reign Effect

The Reign Effect | Cynthia Whiting and Natara Williams | www.thereigneffect.com

Tell me how and when everything started.
The beginnings of the idea of The Reign Effect started when Cynthia thought how great it would be to save time if she knew what she was going to wear every day of the week without having to think about it each morning. Natara and Cynthia have worked on other business ventures together so after an afternoon phone call complaining to each other about how chaotic our mornings can be trying to figure out what to wear each morning, we put our heads together, collaborated and the concept of The Reign Effect was conceived. We fine-tuned everything, did some test runs and received great feedback from friends and family and knew it was a business we had to pursue.

When did you first know that you wanted to be a business owner?
Since college we have both always wanted to eventually pursue our own ventures and create a business that was unique and vital.

Cynthia Whiting and Natara Williams 2

Where do you get your inspiration for your business?
We are inspired by other entrepreneurs who have created and run successful businesses. For our particular business, we both love fashion and accessories and look to different upstarts in the fashion industry who have found creative ways like ourselves to be a part of a bigger picture while being unique.

What advice would you give someone considering a similar path?
If you have a business idea, spend time doing research and planning and then…be fearless and go for it! You can start a business while continuing your day job for more security and stability but the important thing is to just do it.

Corporate Woman

What makes your business unique?
There are no other sites that focuses on the needs of corporate America the way we do or offer a hybrid of both personal styling and a curated online shopping experience. It’s exciting to be the first!

How would you describe your personal style?
Natara: rock and roll chic with a touch of formality. For work, if my pieces are a little bit edgier than usual then I’ll throw on a blazer and/or pumps to formalize the look.
Cynthia: a mixture of classic and edgy. I love color and mix colorful accessories and shoes to my outfit with more neutral tones.

Style Set options and sample sets

What’s next for your company?
The next step is to make sure that everyone who would appreciate our type of service knows about The Reign Effect. We look forward to companies becoming acquainted with The Reign Effect offers and recommending us to their employees as a guideline for stylish and work-appropriate attire and for professionals to spread the word to their colleagues and friends.
