Hello Fellow Beautynistas!
September is back-to-school month, so what better time to focus on back-to-beauty basics! Looking your best doesn’t have to be so complicated. We really only need to pay attention to a few basic beauty secrets–essentials that can help you look and feel great:
1) Never underestimate the power of moisturizer.
2) Use the right tools for the right job.
3) Update your hair and makeup look every season.
Here are some of our new favorite products to guide you through these beauty fundamentals:
totally hot trends
Update your hair look with a style like the updos that were seen on the Fall 2010 runways. This sleek sophisticated look is created by combing the hair back into a bun or a chignon. In order to hold this look in place, try Sally Hershberger’s Salon Shape Up Styling Spray or Smooth Fix Styling Spray. These lightweight, body-building, non-aerosol spray products are all you need to create this easy style.

The latest product in hair removal is the Silk’n SensEpil™ Hair Removal Professional System that launched this month on HSN. The machine uses pulsed-light technology to target problematic areas and hair growth, and is super easy to use. If you’re in search of an affordable at-home alternative to expensive laser hair-removal sessions, then SensEpil is the right tool for you.

what’s in our beauty bag
Change up your look with a simple pop of color. Like how tree leaves change colors from season to season, a simple adjustment of color for your lipstick or gloss can give you a fresh new appearance.
“Korres Cherry Lip Gloss is the one item in my bag I just can’t live without. It gives the perfect amount of shine, lasts long without feeling sticky, and gives my lips the softest feeling. I have one in my bag, one at my desk, one in my car, and even more at home! This way, I am always prepared with my favorite lip gloss whenever and wherever I might need it. That’s why the trio works especially well for me. All of the colors in this set are so flattering, and each give a different but subtle change to your look. Plus my favorite part about Korres is they’re products are all natural.” -Samantha S., hsn.com Beauty Assistant Buyer

P.S. Here are some of our pictures from the fabulous Harrah’s event in Vegas. You’ll see our Beauty Boutique, which was the place to be at the event. We had makeovers from Lancôme & Stila makeup artists, Serious Skin Care’s Jennifer Flavin-Stallone sharing some of her favorite items, and Perlier-Italian Beauty’s Skip and Amanda Borghese were giving out bath and body samples to their closest fans. Enjoy!
Update: Congratulations to blondie77, winner of a GHD straightener, the “Blow It” item of the month from August.
