  • The eyes are the windows to the soul.

    The eyes are the windows to the soul…. So they say.  It seems as though a huge responsibility like that would call for the skin around the eyes being much thicker, yet it’s not.  It’s thin and delicate and generally where the first signs of aging begin.  And, there is nothing worse than a late night at the office and minimal sleep.  The eyes say it all.  Sometimes an adequate amount of sleep isn’t enough.  Maybe its allergy season or maybe you ate or drank something that leaves a lingering shadow around the eyes.  There is nothing more mortifying than waking up and taking that first glance in the mirror.  Comatose and drained, you crank the hot water in the shower in the hopes that a good dose of water will do the trick.  Even after you complete your Bella Terra skincare regimen, the eyes still say it all.  Are you using an eye cream or a serum?  What??  You only use a moisturizer for the face?  Oh my!  The eyes are crying out for some love.

    Did you know that the skin around the eyes, the neck and the hands are where the first signs of aging rear their ugly heads?  You should probably be using an eye cream in your daily regimen.  Wrong!!!  You should MOST definitely use an eye cream, twice a day.  Keep in mind the skin rejuvenates while we sleep and using a serum beforehand will optimize the eye cream function as it will work from the inside out.  That is what serums do!!  They boost the function of the products applied to on-top of the skin and from the inside out.

    Good thing Bella Terra Cosmetics has skincare formulated specially for the eyes.  Bella Terra offers two eye care products designed for the tired eye in all of you.  The Bella Terra Lifting Eye Serum reduces fine lines and wrinkles and tightens the skin.  It boosts collagen renewal, protects against free radicals and the sun’s harmful rays.  Give your eyes the ONE, TWO punch and follow up with Bella Terra Advance Radiance Eye Cream.  It will help diminish dark circles and puffiness.  Your eyes will lighten and brighten and Retinol will see that it’s tightened.  You will have amazing results in just four to six weeks.  Try the before and after test!!  You should take some pictures of before and then weekly thereafter.  Also, you could supplement your regimen with some facial exercises.  You should take a look at this ancient Korean secret.

  • 4 Essential Everyday Beauty Tips from Bella Terra Cosmetics

     

    1. Create Custom Eyeliner Color Using your Eye Shadows.

    Using your eye shadow as eyeliner gives you more option for creating a custom eyeliner color and is easy to apply. Simply grab your eyeliner brush and use a small amount of water to damped your brush. Next, take the brush and dab it in some of your favorite eye shadow and then begin to apply to the outer edge of your upper lid. Using the flat angled brush eyeliner brush, you'll want to press the edge of the brush into your lashes as close to the edge of your lid as possible. Once you've applied the eyeliner you can then start to blend our the eyeliner to avoid harsh lines.

    2. Use a Eye Primer to Contour Your Eyebrows

    Using an eye primer to contour your eyes can help your eyes to pop by creating a more defined eyebrow. Once you've filled in your eyebrows, you can begin to outline the eyebrow carefully using a eyeliner brush or another beauty tool of your choosing. Next you'll want to smooth our the eye primer with either your hands or a blending brush.

     

    3. Use a Daily Moisturizer to Help Remove Eye Makeup 

    Whenever I run out of eye makeup remover, I usually grab my "Daily Moisturizer" and use it to remove excess eye makeup. To do this, I stick a Q-Tip in the moisturizer and then lightly rub it underneath my eyes and on my eyelids to remove excess eye makeup. This little beauty secret works like a charm!

    4. Make Your Own Tinted Moisturizer Using

    You can make your own tinted moisturizer by mixing loose powder together with your favorite moisturizer for sheer coverage. I've used our loose Mineral Foundation in Nutmeg and mixed it with our daily moisturizer to get a liquid based foundation. Some of us just prefer a liquid based foundation, so this works perfectly! You can also use the loose powder to set your tinted moisturizer/foundation.

    Finding the perfect foundation, concealer, and powder can be a hassle. Often times you end up buying and trying a lot of different products just to have them go to waste.

    Using Bella Terra's Mineral Foundation, you will get perfect coverage every time since you are using the same shade for your foundation, concealer and powder. In just a few steps, you can easily turn our mineral foundation into a concealer and foundation. Since it is already in a loose powder form you'll have no problem setting your makeup once you have finished with the foundation and concealer application for flawless coverage!

  • Mineral Makeup Benefits

    Mineral makeup is makeup made out of natural minerals. There are many advantages to using this type of makeup for both the health and the appearance of your skin. However, many people do not understand exactly what makes natural makeup so advantageous, and therefore have to rely on advertising to decide what type of mineral makeup products to purchase.

    Understanding the advantages of mineral makeup can help inform your decision-making process.

     Natural Ingredients

    Mineral makeup is all about what is not included - chemicals, fillers, preservatives, fragrance, oils and talc are all absent from mineral makeup.

    Mineral makeup uses powdered minerals like mica , titanium dioxide and iron oxides to make skin look younger and smoother.

    mica-powder-2-200x200Because these minerals are undiluted by other artificial ingredients, mineral makeup can be used even on extremely sensitive skin. Truly pure mineral makeup uses only mineral substances that are found in nature; even the color is derived from natural minerals.

    Ideal for Sensitive Skin

    Those with ongoing skin conditions such as acne, rosacea and eczema all rely on mineral makeup products to help soothe flare-ups while looking fabulous at the same time. Not only does the mineral makeup block the damaging sun which can be hard on problematic skin, it also works to actually soothe and possibly heal the problem areas through a natural combination of the Earth’s minerals.

    Lightweight, Natural Coverage

    Many cosmetics seem to age skin more – if not literally though toxins and chemicals, then through the appearance when foundation settles into the small lines of the face making them appear much larger.

    Mineral creates the most natural finish, essentially a “non-makeup look.” Though the makeup itself is weightless and practically invisible, it provides long-lasting coverage, leaving the skin with an even, smooth appearance. It feels as though you’re not even wearing makeup while wrinkles, broken capillaries, red spots, acne scars and fine lines are camouflaged.

    Natural Sunscreen

    Two of the most prominent ingredients in mineral makeup, zinc oxide and
    nature girl 200x200 titanium dioxide, have natural UVA and UVB blocking properties. Therefore mineral makeup made with these products has powerful sun fighting properties. There is no longer any need to wear a greasy sunscreen product under your makeup.

    Long-term benefits

    Using mineral makeup can provide long-term benefits to your skin.
    Dermatologists believe that mineral makeup is naturally better for the skin, so your skin will have fewer problems with dryness, oiliness or other irritations.

    THE BENEFITS IN A NUTSHELL:

    • Offers a natural, healthy look
    • Reduces the appearance of aging
    • Provides excellent sun protection
    • 100% hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic
    • Ideal for all skin types, even for those with hyper-sensitive skin
    • Has anti-inflammatory properties; calms and soothes irritated skin
    • Allows your skin to breathe
    • Dermatologist and aesthetician recommended

    How to Choose the Right Mineral Makeup?

    Buyer beware! Not all mineral makeup is created equal. Read the labels carefully and make sure that there are no additives such Talc or Bismuth Oxychloride. Talc, also known as Hydrous Magnesium Silicate, is a toxic ingredient similar to asbestos. Bismuth Oxychloride can be a major skin irritant.

    The fewer the ingredients the mineral makeup contains, the better.

  • Skin Care

    Hello fellow makeup and skin care lovers!  Today I attempt to answer our most commonly asked question: "When do I use all this skin care?"  Well, to start, the answer is simple - YOU DON'T!  Our skin care line has little wonder products that will even out a vast number of different skin care problems so we've got you all covered from the gracefully aging to the acne-prone, and everyone in between.  But chances are you don't fall into all of these categories, right?  So then you don't need to use every product out there.  You'll definitely sabotage your efforts and drive yourself to premature aging trying to figure that out!

    The basic routine is this: clean, tone, moisturize - morning and night.  In that order.  Another easy set?  Makeup Primer, makeup, then Makeup Remover.   Yes?  I think we can all agree on that part.  So now for the stuff that you didn't already know - the good part.

    First, let's tackle our Restorative Cream.  It's easy - use it at night.  You would use this miracle cream at the end of your routine, instead of moisturizer and just before bed.

    Advanced Radiance Eye Cream and Lifting Eye Serum are meant for the delicate skin around the eyes and can be partnered with the Restorative Cream.  If you need one, use them for crows feet and other laugh lines which will decrease over time.  Choose which one is best for you and use it around the eyes while allowing the Restorative Cream to go to work on your face.

    Exfoliating Gel can be considered harsh if used too often.  Most skin types will want to exfoliate about once a week and use this in lieu of the Restorative Cream.  Follow exfoliation with our Pore-Refining Toner and end with Daily Moisturizer.  You might have noticed that this process is different from the nights you use Restorative Cream.  This becomes easier to remember when your understand the reasoning behind it.  1) exfoliating opens the pores temporarily for deep cleaning.  Don't leave them this way though to allow dirt and other debris in there!  Who wants that?  Follow with Toner to close the pores back up and protect your skin from the environment.  2) your skin will want some TLC after exfoliating - give it a break and moisturize.

    Anti-Wrinkle Cream would be a substitute for Daily Moisturizer about 1-2 times per week.  Remember - this is only if you need it!  If you're lucky enough to be in your teens and early twenties (or to just have enviable genes) - forget it!  You don't need it.

    Anti-Aging Capsules would be used once a week instead of your choice of eye cream or serum and Restorative Cream.

  • Bella Terra On the Scene in Puerto Rico!

     

    Happy Tuesday, ladies and gents!  I am writing to brag a bit this morning.  Bella Terra Puerto Rico is shaping up into a great success.  We just attended Expo Mujer there and had soooo much fun.  We were proud to be responsible for makeup for 7 featured designers, including Carlos Alberto, Puerto Rico's most acclaimed fashion designer!  Carlos has designed haute couture for Miss Puerto Rico, Miss USA, Miss Teen USA and Miss Universe pageants so being there with him was awesome!  Check out the pics!

  • New, Luxe Lip Gloss Line!

    Hello fellow makeup lovers and happy Monday.... or maybe not so happy?  I don't know about you guys but I'm EXHAUSTED!  I'm really not a fan of daylight savings time because it gets me every time.  I've had more caffeine than usual this morning and still can't fully wake up! 

    Thank goodness for the excitement over our new line of lip glosses to put some pep in my step!  We've been searching far and wide for entirely mineral lip glosses that still feel, smell and look great while lasting throughout the day and we finally found them!  They're shiny without being sticky and long-lasting without clumping.  Look out for them in the coming weeks.  We've got 3 colors to start with and will be introducing each one soon!

  • Makeup Miracle!!! An homage to Eye Prime...

    Hello fellow makeup lovers... today's post is simply an homage to Bella Terra's Eye Prime.  WOW!  I'm sure you've all read every blurb on our website, right?  ;)  Well, it definitely states there in our "Looks and Tips" section that our Eye Prime doubles as an "under eye concealer" but it actually works as a concealer EVERYWHERE.  I tried it on a blemish last night and I've really never tried a concealer that covers this well.  I'm amazed!  What's even more impressive is that I'm extremely fair-skinned and, despite the darker appearance of Eye Prime, the color blended in with my skin tone oh so naturally.  I'm a fan for life! 

    Have you tried using our Eye Prime as concealer?  If not, what are you waiting for?  Get it by clicking the picture above.  (Psst... it's on sale!)  If you've already tried Eye Prime as a concealer, share your thoughts!  I just know you've fallen in love with this product like I have;)

    Love and makeup,
