Rilastil Training

       
Friday, June 6th, 2014

A Guide to Beauty SupplementsThis past week the Beauty Bridge team was lucky enough to undergo product training with Rilastil. Rilastil is an Italian brand that is a household name across Europe. We were all thrilled to learn more about a brand we love using and that is reputable around the globe. Our trainer was extremely well versed on everything Rilastil; we learned everything from the brand’s roots to their upcoming products! Some general Rilastil knowledge – their namesake comes from the company’s commitment to increasing the skin’s elasticity. The brand’s first product was their famous Stretch Marks Cream; this product, and the entire brand, is centered on elasticity concerns.

Rilastil takes its products seriously. With their roots in the pharmaceutical industry, all the products are developed, tested and packaged in state-of-the-art facility. Team member Maggie is “impressed with the amount, duration and quality of the testing they do on their products to ensure that they are completely safe for everybody. It really shows how much they value their customers.”

We began our product training with skincare. As many companies do, Rilastil has many products for different complexions. I, for one, loved the way the products were organized.  Rilastil has a skincare line for every skin type, each with its own name and line description. This makes it so easy for customers to find the product that is right for them. To make things easier, team member Zoukhra compiled a quick reference guide for all the different product lines.

Daily Care: Daily care products such as cleanser, toner and makeup remover types.

Aqua: Designed for those with dehydrated skin.

Micro: To combat the first signs of aging. Ideal for those with the skin of someone in their twenties

Hydrotenseur: For aging that has progressed. Ideal for those with the skin of someone in their thirties.

Progression HD: Ideal for those with advanced signs of aging (deep wrinkles, extreme loss of collagen and elasticity). These signs usually appear after fifty.

A-Lipik: Designed for sensitive, weakened skin. This line doesn’t contain any fragrance.

Deliskin: Designed for skin that has redness and irritation.

Multirepair: For very dry and aged skin.

Of course, we got to play with all of the products! Everything smelled fresh and felt incredibly luxurious on the skin. My personal favorite products were from the Aqua line. They were extremely soothing, and my skin immediately felt nourished. I can’t go without mentioning Rilastil’s Micellar Solution. This makeup remover is a must for every beauty-maven. Our trainer demonstrated this product; she put some lipstick on her hand and entirely removed it with one swipe of the remover! We were all awestruck. Gone are the days of pulling at tugging at the skin to remove all traces of makeup – this product is the biggest time saver.

The company has a makeup line as well. In fact, the Make Up Volume Mascara is one of Rilastil’s bestsellers. It provides intense volume without any clumping or smudging; we were told that it’s a favorite amongst celebrities! Another product we loved was the bronzer (Make Up Color Corrector). We’re always looking to maintain summery glows here at Beauty Bridge; this product gives complexion the perfect glow! Team member Olcay (and bronzer connoisseur) loves how it looks very natural.

We had so much fun with our trainer that we were disappointed when our time came to an end! However, we were lucky enough to get a few samples! It is extremely helpful for us to try the products, since we can now give accurate recommendations to customers. Zoukhra “can certainly suggest the products costumers and give [her] personal feedback. She now will be able to say with confidence that Rilastil Mascara and High Definition Eye Pencil are great quality and stay on without smudging for a very long time.”

All in all, the Beauty Bridge team loved everything about our product training, and is well-equipped to answer any questions you may have!

The 6 Days of Beauty

The 6 Days of Beauty

Of course you’re focusing on buying for your loved ones this holiday season, but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve a little reward, too. In fact, all the stress of the holiday season means you need some TLC now more than ever. While perusing the seemingly endless amount of hair and makeup products out there, how do you know which ones are best for you? Picking out a gift for yourself can be just as difficult as choosing one for someone else in your life. The fact is, the world of beauty is a complex one, and when you’re more educated about what different products can do, you can better harness the power they provide. You may need a few lessons before you buy new items.

Enter: The 6 Days of Beauty. Beginning this week, Beauty Bridge will begin sending out a series of emails with informative tips and tricks from head to toe. Worried that all your heat hair styling will cause frazzled ends? Wondering how to perfect a smoldering smoky eye? Curious about what bath elixirs will put you in a more tranquil state? Each one of these emails will provide you with advice and helpful recommendations so that not only can you choose ideal products for your needs, but you can use them to their maximum advantage.

Here’s a glimpse at what you’ll learn about:

Day 1: Perfect Winter Hair Products
Wintertime doesn’t just mean inclement weather – the frigid temperatures and dry air can cause a host of problems for your hair. That means that it’s time to switch up your hair products when the seasons change. Still, what kind of conditioner will give your tresses the moisture they so desperately need? What hair sprays can eliminate flyaways from your static-provoking hats? How do you protect your locks from damage when you’re flat ironing them into a sleek ‘do for a holiday soirée? It’s nearly impossible to navigate the world of winter hair products without a little assistance, which is why the first series is focused on this subject.

Every day should be a good hair day. Armed with some new knowledge about which solutions can best protect your hair through the coldest season, your strands are sure to shine.

Day 2: Dreamy, Sultry, Sparkling Eyes
With the shimmering snowfall outside and sequined party dresses all around, it’s natural to gravitate toward more sparkly makeup. However, glittery eyes require the right tools and tactics to work. If you’re aiming to amp up the glitz factor this season, the second installment of the 6 Days of Beauty is made for you. The key to getting an eye-catching look is to combine hues that complement one another, and apply them with precise techniques. It may not sound easy, but with the information provided in the 2nd Day of Beauty, achieving this kind of dramatic impact with your eye makeup will become second nature.

This series will equip you with the information you need to achieve anything from a subtle shimmery eye to a dramatic metallic smoky eye in mere minutes. That means it’s definitely a must for all your upcoming holiday bashes and events.

Day 3: Winter Skin Care Products
Just as you change up your wardrobe during the winter, you need to do the same for your skincare regimen. The proper combination of skincare products is crucial for protecting your skin from the harsh winter air. After all, flakes may be pretty during a snowfall, but they’re not so attractive on your skin. Whether you have dry skin or an oily complexion, picking ideal products for your type can ensure you don’t run into problems that wreak havoc on your appearance. In fact, some skincare products are specifically designed to alleviate the issues that inevitably arise during the winter.

This installment is designed to aid you in both selecting solutions that will address your specific concerns, as well as advise you about when and how to apply them. There’s no reason to forfeit your glow just because it’s no longer summer.

Day 4: Irresistible, Sensual Scents
Scent is a powerful sense: It has the ability to make you instantly more magnetic, even in a crowded room, and also make you far more memorable, even long after you’ve met someone. Are you looking to switch your scent for something a little more alluring this season? The realm of fragrances isn’t always easy to navigate. With so many different combinations of notes, it can be difficult to choose one. That’s why on the 4th Day of Beauty, we decided to give you a lesson on aromas. From feminine floral fragrances with passionate fruity undertones to woodsy scents with seductive amber and vanilla, there are a vast array of options at your disposal.

Maybe you want a rollerball to tote with you on the go, or perhaps you want to take the plunge with a full sized bottle of a new fragrance. If you find a scent you like, you may even consider going all out with a gift package that contains a lotion and a body wash in your preferred aroma. Either way, with our help, you’ll find a scent that keeps you smelling heavenly all through the season.

Day 5: Men Need Grooming
It’s time to face facts: men need to invest in certain beauty products, too. Of course, most guys will spend far less time in front of the mirror than girls do, but that doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t be mindful of the skincare and shaving products they use. In fact, men often face a lot more issues with their skin due to a higher testosterone level, meaning they’re more likely to battle blackheads and breakouts. Plus, shaving ushers in a host of other concerns, such as razor bumps. Fortunately, no man has to suffer through these issues. With the right products and practices, any guy can make sure their complexion is clear. Additionally, as men grow older, they may begin to notice a few wrinkles and fine lines begin to form. While this is an inevitable part of aging, there are particular products that can help to reverse these effects to help you restore your youth.

If you’re a guy who takes pride in the way you look, you’ll definitely benefit from the 5th Day of Beauty. Whether it’s softer, fuller hair you’re seeking or a smoother shave, there is a wealth of information in this installment to help you achieve your ideal appearance.

Day 6: Soothing and Relaxing Bath Products
Between running around from store to store for all your holiday shopping to hosting festive events, things can certainly get a little hectic during this season. That’s why it’s more important than ever to set aside a little “me time.” There’s something to be said for indulging in a relaxing bath after a long, stressful day. Not only can you alleviate some of the built up tension that negatively impacts your health, but you can also recharge your perspective so you’re in a better mood.

So which bath products will most help to calm your mind and body? Wait for the 6th and final Day of Beauty email to find out.

New holiday colors from Pixi Cosmetics

New holiday colors from Pixi Cosmetics

Now that you’re getting in the holiday spirit and dusting off your glitziest party dresses, it’s time to upgrade your cosmetics for something a little more shimmery. After all, you want to sparkle from start to finish at all those upcoming soirées. The perfect party makeup is eye-catching as well as long-lasting – which is why the new products from Pixi Cosmetics are ideal for any occasion this season. Ready to get glowing?

Here are a few holiday looks that will make you the life of the party:

Glowing goddess
With glitter all around, how can you still manage to stay in the spotlight? Draw light to your eyes with the Pixi Crayon Combo in Wide Awake, a combo of matte nude and gleaming gold infused with caffeine to instantly make you look awake and alert. Or, glide on the Pixi Crayon Combo in Super Natural for soft-focused definition. The matte charcoal brown and glowing tan pencils work together to define your peepers so they really stand out. For a bolder look, reach for The Pixi Crayon Combo in Softly Smoky, which provides a powerful duo of matte dark chocolate and a shimmering bronze for an effortlessly enchanting effect.

Just because you’re not getting as much sunlight these days doesn’t mean you have to forfeit a radiant complexion. The Pixi Bronze Bloom Trio comes with three shades that work together for instant illumination. The neutral bronzer complements any skin tone for a sun-kissed glow, while the pink and peach blush give your cheeks the perfect burst of color.

Blazing bombshell
A cream eyeshadow glides on smoothly, but can tend to crease – unless it’s the Pixi Lid Last Shadow Pen, which transforms from a cream to a powder so your peepers glisten all night long. Light-reflecting shades like Shell Sheen pair well with a more demure outfit, while Bronze Brilliance and Graphite Glint are just sultry enough to create a subtle smoky eye. If you’re going for a brightening effect, simply sweep the pencil over your eyelids and blend. Or, you can amp up the drama by reaching for a darker shade and tracing your lashlines, then slightly smudging.

Don’t forget to give your lip some luster. The Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balm is an ultra nourishing gloss that hydrates and repairs your lips with vitamin E, Jojoba oil and Shea butter, while also softly infusing them with vibrant color. As the balm slowly fades over time, you’re left with a stain that’s completely customized to your unique chemistry, as the intensity will depend on the pH level of your lips. Baby bare is a muted pinky nude that’s flattering on any complexion, Rosy Red has a retro sophistication and Bitten Berry is a must when you want a bolder pout.

Divine diva
It’s hard to choose an eyeliner hue, and why should you? The Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen Kit comes with five different stunning shades that offer a variety of looks. From Deep Plum and Black Cocoa to Sage Gold, you have endless possibilities for glamming up your eyes. Black Noir gives you the option of a classic cat-eye, while Oyster Glow offers a surefire way to brighten up your peepers. Simply glide the pencil from the inner corner of your eye outward. You always have the option of blending the pigment to create an alluring smoky effect.

Since your calendar is full of festivities, you might just need the Pixi Perfection Palette in Lit-Up Lovely. With 16 eyeshadow colors, three cheek powders, a highlighter and a bronzer, you’re armed with all the essentials to contour your face, enhance your features and ultimately, draw some major attention.
