We here at FY Beauty have a brand new service to offer our wonderful guests. We have been certified and trained in a technique called dermaplaning. Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation that gently removes dead skin and vellus hair which is better known as peach fuzz. This technique performs similarly to microdermabrasion. However, with this method the esthetician has complete control on the pressure and there’s no abrasions or dragging the skin with a vacuum.
We pair this technique with our custom enzyme facial and the results are amazing. Immediately following your facial you will notice a luminous glow. The results will give you dewy skin, smooth skin texture and a faster cell turnover. After your facial, your skin care products will be able to perform better. This treatment can be done once a month. As with any enzyme service it is critical to use SPF in conjunction with your home use products. Your skin may be photosensitive (sensitive to the sun) which is normal for any skin care treatment.
This treatment will take about an hour and is actually quite relaxing. Included in this treatment are the cleansing, dermaplaning, enzyme, masque and moisturizer/SPF.
It has been a little bit since I’ve updated everyone on what was going on at FY Beauty. Well for starters we have finally launched our Flawless Fusion custom blend foundation. With this new product we are able to formulate your perfect shade. We can customize how much coverage you desire and what kind of finish you desire as well. For example we can make a dewy tinted moisturizer or a full coverage matte formula.
Those who have already tried out the formula have nothing but great things to say but imagine our surprise when we were contacted by Alissa Henry of ABC6/FOX28 here in Columbus wanting to feature a story on us. We had about a week to prepare. The TV crew arrived at FY Beauty on November 10, 2015. First Alissa interviewed me on the background of my business and what my goals and missions are. We covered what services I offer and how FY Beauty came to be.
Next, I was able to mix up a batch of custom foundation for my lovely model Emily. I demonstrated which bases and toners I was using and why. Next I was able to put makeup on Emily and of course it was a perfect match! Of course I wanted Alissa to have her very own bottle of Flawless Fusion so the day the story aired (November 19) I was able to go down to the ABC6/FOX28 studios and whip some up for her. Once I finished up her makeup we went down to the set where I saw my story air live! I was grinning from ear to ear. I am proud that my hard work is really paying off.
The last little icing on the cake is that I got to meet Shawn Wayans who was at the studios to promote his comedy show which was in town!

I recently was able to attend the Face & Body Midwest Spa Conference in Chicago, Il. It was also a part of America’s Beauty Show. I have been to smaller trade shows but this was by far the largest. It took place at the McCormick Place Conference Center. This trade show was the who’s who of the hair, spa and makeup world.
I got the chance to connect with new and exciting products which I can’t wait to bring into my beauty studio. One of the best purchases was the Kett Fixx Creme. It is a wax based creme foundation which makes it bulletproof! This is perfect for my upcoming wedding season to ensure the makeup I do lasts and lasts.
I also picked up some amazing new wax and implements to help soothe skin after waxing and skin treatments. I got to try out other new skin care products from Skin Script which is going to enhance my facial services.
One of the most rewarding parts of this trip was getting to reconnect with Michigan
Makeup Academy which is where I went to learn about makeup. Devawn is the owner and has some really exciting programs coming up including essential and advanced artistry courses. They also have new options for financing your education so there’s no excuse!!!

Whew this past weekend was crazy busy!!! I loved every minute of it. I was talking to my PR rep and I was telling her about some of my projects and classes that I've been working on and she thought I should share it with the world. I'm trying to get better about this blogging business!
Anyway, like I said this weekend was jam packed with things to do. I was honored to work on a wedding with a bridal party of 6. Doing 6 faces can be exhausting but imagine only having 2 hours to do them! That was my challenge. I happily accepted it and stepped up to the plate. It was awesome. Of course some took longer and others were shorter but in general I was able to get it done. Let's just say the adrenaline was pumping and by the time I got home I was exhausted. Two margaritas later and I was ready to crash. (I also had some regular waxing clients at the studio after the wedding)
Sunday it was time to wake up and do it again. I had two girls who were competing in a regional Miss Teen pageant. One girl (Bri) came in as a runner up! I can't wait to work with them again on another pageant. Once I was done with them, I had to run out to Sarah Elizabeth Photography & Design's studio in Alexandria, Ohio to do makeup for a boudoir photoshoot. Those shoots are always fun because you get to do very sexy and sultry makeup and make everyday women look and feel glamorous.
Once I was done there, I had to shoot to a MUA meeting for the Spring into Beauty fashion show taking place on May 4, 2013. I'll be doing the looks for the Curvy Couture Boutique. The proceeds are going to benefit Central Ohio Men Against Prostate Cancer (COMAPC). Show your support and get your tickets at www.springintobeauty.eventbrite.com
This spring is inspired by color!!! It's the time of year when everything is renewing itself. Use this time to try out a new lip color. A new color on your lips will give you a more vibrant appearance. It can even help brighten up your mood. I know nothing makes me happier than new lipstick and lip gloss.
Faithfully Yours Beauty has a few colors you can try. My go to this spring would be the Chic lip gloss. It gives you a perfect pop of color that's not too sheer and not too bold. Other go to options this spring from Faithfully Yours Beauty would be Allure lip gloss, Bing Cherry Lipstick and Barely Beige Lipstick.
Get yours today! They are only $10 a piece so you can get one or buy them all! shop.fybeauty.com
Of course the theme every January is New Year New You! I’m all for it. In fact it’s a great measuring point from where/what you did the previous year to what you plan for this year! Every year people want to get in shape and I’m no exception to this rule.
In my gym bag are the workout essentials but if you work out before heading to work you need to pack some beauty essentials! For a quick clean easy look keep concealer, lip stick and/or gloss, liner and mascara.
Lining your eyes as close to the lash line as possible and then topping it off with mascara defines your eyes and makes your lashes appear fuller. Concealer of course will brighten up your skin and help erase the look of being tired. Finally the lips are the fasted and easiest ways to give your face a refreshing pop of color! And just like that you are ready to face the day!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! We made it!! And I thank you for continuing with me. I know it’s been a while since I last blogged but so many great things have happened!!!
If you didn’t know, I have recently launched my own makeup line!! FYB Makeup Collection features amazing products!!! They are high on quality without breaking the bank. I wouldn’t have it any other way!
I’m sure many of you made weight loss a goal and have been hitting the gym like me! Well you don’t have to sacrifice your beauty for fitness. Using the FYB Eye Primer will help your eye shadow stay on all day and prevent it from creasing. It goes on like a cream and sets to a powder making blending a breeze!
