Recovering from A Beat Down? #CoveritUp

 

Kat-Von-D-Foundation-4029

Clearly there MUST be something in the air because I have seen/heard of  1 TOO Many beat downs this weekend! Poor babies! The way reality tv is going these days, the Solange on Jay-Z beat down didn’t surprise me. Honestly, it’s probably not the first time things have gotten physical. Nevertheless, for those fights that can’t be avoided,  try the new Kat Von D Lock it  Tattoo Foundation. For just $34.00 at Sephora, this foundation will cover any bruise, scar or burn incurred from a variety of beat down scenarios. It is Extremely thick! However, you can dilute the heaviness of foundation by mixing with a light moisturizer or even a tad bit of water. Guys, got into a squabble at a bar, but have a really important meeting tomorrow? Grab a sample! Then take a q-tip, dabble it onto the darkened area only, and blend carefully. Once complete, dab a little white, odorless body powder over the site with a clean fingertip or tissue. Ladies you can use your favorite colorless HD setting powder, but for fellas, powder will do the trick! Good luck and please #ElevateResponsibly LOL

And, even if done less frequently, should we be still be worried?

In order to help ease your mind I’ve put together the top five things you should know about gel manicure safety. These are tricks of the trade I’ve learned from cosmetology school and personal experience. Check out the full story on Styleblazer.com here.
