Travel Must Haves

            Summer is right around the corner! Have you started planning your summer vacation? The worst part of vacation is the packing! Here are some travel must haves!

            Here are some essential beauty bag items you will need for summer travels.

Manna Kadar CosmeticsTransfix:

            Transform any of your eye shadows into a smudge proof liquid liner.  Simply dip Transfix into any eye shadow and rim your eyes for the perfect eyeliner.  As an added benefit, use Transfix on brows and your water line. Transfix has no scent and is long-wear.

Minus Ion Care Water

This is some seriously hi-tech water! This water is not only safe for everyone, but is a must-have for everyone! Negative ion water is 170 times more absorbent than regular water, so it penetrates to the core of your hair and skin. Because it is negatively charged, it bonds to hair and skin, killing bacteria and providing superior moisture. This miracle water helps to strengthen fine hair, making it feel thicker. It also boosts the strength of conditioners, treatments or styling aids, allowing the products to penetrate deeper and work better. Similarly, if used pre-toner, serum and moisturizer, it enhances the efficacy of your skin care regimen. Can also be used as a makeup remover on face and eyes.

Sheer Glo:

         Sheer Glo is an incandescent liquid that lights up skin with all over radiance. Mix with foundation or wear alone to provide a luminous glow for all skin types. An especially amazing product for mature or dry skin. Sheer Glo provides a youthful glow and dewy finish. Use along the cheekbone or below the eyebrows for a beautiful highlight. Use on face and/or body and get glowing.

Adaptasun Sea and Tropics Body Lotion SPF 20:


Everyone needs a sunscreen during summer vacation! Adaptasun ensures safe prolonged sun exposure even in severe conditions such as tropics, high altitudes and glaciers. It allows a deep, natural tan to develop without harmful UV damage. Adaptasun is formulated with UV in-Cellium Technology to protect skin from the inside by strengthening its self-defense systems (DNA protection, protection of cell structures and reduced cellular inflammation). Like all of your favorite Institut Esthederm products, it is also enriched with Cellular Water to energize skin, as well as an Anti-dehydration Complex to leave skin soft, supple and comfortable during and after exposure.

Prime Time:

            Prime Time is a revolutionary 4-in-1 product: Eye & Lip Primer, Highlighter & Concealer.  This multi-functional product as a primer for both eyes & lips, providing long lasting color that will prevent eye make-up from smudging and creasing, while keeping eyeshadows vibrant throughout the day. Use Prime Time on your lips to prevent feathering and keep lipstick or lip gloss from fading. As an added benefit, Prime Time can be used as a highlighter and concealer.

Pretty Up Your Pout

2. Apply a lip primer such as Manna Kadar Cosmetics Prime Time all over lips to help them hold onto the lipstick and also prevent the product from feathering.

3. Take a lip liner or a darker shade of lipstick and line the rims of your lips.

4. Apply a bold red such as Russian or pink such as Saucy for that statement-making pop of color.


Nail Art

Are you tired of the same old French Mani Pedi? Well step out of your comfort zone and try nail art! The new craze for this Spring 2014 season!

              Nail art has become the new accessory to savvy fashionista’s. The boring French manicure or solid colors are out, and are in with the bold and unique designs on your nail beds. Anyone can wear these crazy designs from soccer moms to red-carpet celebs. While shoes and handbags can cost a pretty penny, nails are an easy and inexpensive way to add a little spark to any outfit.

              Nail art can be applied at local nail salons or simply buying a kit and doing it a home by yourself.  My preferred method is having a nail technician apply the designs with gel.  This ensures a 2 week, chip free manicure.   

              Are you going to be brave and jump on the bandwagon by trying some nail art? Take a look at the founder of Manna Kadar Cosmetics “Manna Kadar” sporting a fresh nail art look!

Valentine’s Day Date Night Look

Do you have a special night out coming up? Here a couple of tips to achieving a
stunning makeup look.

First is the eyes: You can never go wrong with a smoky eye! Smoky eyes are sexy
but also can give a dramatic vibe to it as well. Using a matte shadow just below your
lower lashes and all over your lid is a great way to achieve the overall smoky look. Make
sure to really blend when using a matte shadow so it evens the color all over your lid.
Use Manna Kadar “Diamonds Darling” eye shadow palette, which contains the perfect
matte greys and blacks. Take Manna Kadar “Transfix” and rim your eyes with the black
shadow from the “Diamonds Darling” palette. Add some Manna Kadar Curling Mascara
to make sure every lash looks full and long.

Second the cheeks: For the cheeks you want to do a softer look since you are
wearing an intense smoky eye. A little flushed cheeks is a great pair to soften your look,
a sweet meets sexy look. Cream blushes are the must have because their smooth texture
helps with stay put power and can be applied with your fingertips. Use Manna Kadar
“Sweet Cheeks Color Pot” all over your cheekbones. This product is also great to use on
lips and eyes for a 3-in-1 product! Fun tip: To instantly make you’re the structure of your
face seem slimmer try contouring. Contouring is the huge craze and a great trick to
instantly enhance your features. Take Manna Cosmetics “Entice” blush and simply dust
under your cheekbone.

Lastly the lips: Lips are the last touch to your makeup look! Who said you cannot
wear a bold eye and a bold lip? It is okay to break some rules! Use Manna Kadar’s new
priming lipstick in the color “Saucy” to give you that wow factor! Saucy is one of
Manna’s most popular lip colors and is most defiantly a showstopper!
Now that you have got the look it’s time for your date night out!
