Tuesday Tips @ 10am: Get that beachy look.

Today's tip comes from the noted make-up and hair artist Antwan Jones. With a portfolio full of beautiful tear sheets we will share some of his beauty secrets with you this week. Antwan suggests using a texturizing spray in your hair that has sea salt in it to make "beachy waves" for the summer. After showering, spray into damp hair and let air dry to get a laid back surfer hair look. Enjoy your summer and stay beautiful.

Tuesday Tips @ 10am: Bye Bye Wrinkles!

Don't feel like bringing out your iron for just a few creases? Try spraying a wrinkle release spray and throwing it in the dryer for about 10 minutes... it will make a huge difference!

Remember, wrinkles are not in cute when your clothes are supposed to be pressed.

From the Eyes of the Intern

Hello Again Beauties!

I can't believe a month has gone by since I started my internship...time really does fly when your having fun! It's been busy but very exciting at the La Belle Agency in the past month and I am all settled in now...I think. I have been contacting future clients, sat in on more interviews with future stylist, met some of our awesome "family of stylists" (pictured to the right) and even took over half of the office by bringing in my Keurig machine so I can make my morning coffee and tea!

I can't wait to update you all about the most thrilling photo shoot I've done so far. Last week, I had the privilege to go on board a yacht (yes, a real one with a bedroom and a kitchen) which was provided by Yacht-O-Fun Charters on Lake Lewisville for a glamorous fashion photo shoot for Designs by Whitney Bracey.

We woke up with the birds and arrived at the hotel, half asleep, at 4:30 in the morning to begin hair and make-up. After a few cups of coffee and a couple cans of Red Bull, we were ready to begin the day. The models put on their stunning bathing suits Whitney designed and the whole team of photographers, videographers, models, and stylist got into our cars as we began our caravan to Pier 121 Marina. We met up with our captain, Chuck Raines and boarded the yacht. The models put on their jewelry, spray tans and smiles while the captain drove the boat out into the water and the photographer, Iris Swope started shooting immediately afterwards.

Spending an afternoon on a yacht is not what I was expecting to be doing when I was applying for internships. But I am in no way complaining! It was such a fun day and an eye-opening experience to see how much time and planning goes into shooting a look book full of amazing pictures. There is a lot of behind the scenes work involved that I had no idea took place...who knew tan accelerator and glitter hairspray even existed?

I absolutely loved being involved with this photo shoot and I look forward to more photo shoots to come!

Talk soon,

Tuesday Tips @ 10am

June is here ladies...that means very high temperatures. Ditch the thick foundation, it's too hot for that! Mix a powered bronzer with your favorite SPF facial moisturizer to make your own lightweight tinted moisturizer.
