Fire, Air, Water or Earth?

Have you ever met that one person who’s like, “sorry, I’m a fire sign so watch out”? I’ve met a few of them myself. If you’re one of those people (or even if you’re not), we’ve got the perfect JAFRA products that align with your inner element.
 
Bold, chill, upbeat or down to earth? Check and see where your zodiac sign falls within these four elements:

Fire

Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

 
Fire signs are known for their intense passion, creativity and spontaneity. You tend to light a flame that can sometimes be too hot (ouch!) for the rest of us, though.
 
Our very own Leo legacy, @esteldayofficial, sparks fashion ideas with this red lip and neon yellow hair ensemble.
 
If you’re looking to intensify your style fellow fire signs, complement your fall look with our JAFRA Beauty Highlighter Sticks in ‘Soleil’, ‘24K Magic’ or ‘Bubbly’. Highlight your cheekbones and cupid’s bow for a vibrant glow.
 
For nails, a Rapid Dry Nail Lacquer in ‘Coral Flash’ or ‘Racey Red’ will add an extra pop to your wardrobe.

The piece de resistance (as the French say) are lips with a JAFRA ROYAL Matte Metallic Lipstick in ‘Ruby Rush’ or a JAFRA Full Coverage Lipstick in ‘Amor.’ A bold red lip will always align with your vibe!

Air

 Gemini, Libra, Aquarius



Intellectual and curious, air signs tend to think twice before acting and enjoy expressing how they feel. Be careful though—depending on their mood, they can be a summer breeze or a fierce Santa Ana wind.
 
One of our favorite Libras, @luiselbarber, is in love with our JAFRA ROYAL Men skin care line. We recommend our air men and women to supercharge their skin care routine with any JAFRA ROYAL Ritual.
 
Another ritual that is a must for this element is JAFRA ROYAL Luna Bright. Start off with the Luna Bright Serum Concentrate or the Luna Bright Brightening White Clay Mask. If either of those products do you wonders, then Luna Bright is the ritual for you.

Water

 Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces


The water element is everything it seems to be. You tend to see things more clearly, making you a great problem solver. In some instances, you’re also imaginative, emotionally sensitive, and nurturing.
 
Our aquatic cancer, @taffymariex, brings more beauty inspo to the JAFRA table with this look that’s out of this world. Enrich your eyes with the JAFRA ROYAL Eyeshadow Quad in ‘Purple Reign’. This ultra-fine formula is infused with exclusive Royal Jelly RJ˟!
 
Finish your look with a lip that shines in any sky. Our JAFRA ROYAL Matte Metallic lipstick in ‘Rock Star’ delivers rich pigment every time.
 
Use your own element to your favor water signs, the JAFRA ROYAL Boost Micellar Water helps purify the skin by filtering out any impurities. The JAFRA ROYA Boost Skin Drench Gel Mask is also an option if your skin is feeling dry and needs a hydration bomb.

Earth

 Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

 

Logical, practical and with your feet on the ground is just a brief description of what earth signs are known to be. Sometimes you are so goal oriented that you neglect other people’s feelings. Yet, you are still very reliable and responsible to those in your realm.
 
Our gorgeous JAFRA Taurus (and JAFRA Consultant), @jaillinodalys, paired a red lip with our JAFRA Beauty Limited Edition Galaxia Eyeshadow Palette. This is truly #MUA goals.
 
Earth signs rock the “no makeup” makeup look the best! Add some JAFRA Beauty Long Wear Crème blush in ‘Cashmere Peach’ or ‘Cashmere Peony’ for rosy warm cheeks.
 
You’re also all about nature and its beauty, so Orchid Blossom hits the right floral accords for this down to earth sign.
 
Fall is in full session and so is dry skin (yuck)! We highly recommend you earthlings try out our Royal Almond Rich Body Oil with Vitamin E.

JAFRA's Golden Rule

My grandparents, Jan and Frank Day, instilled in me a philosophy that helped my fashion business. As a result, I became more successful. They created JAFRA in 1956, spreading the philosophy of helping all people who seek the opportunity. Now, JAFRA operates internationally, helping others around the world live better lives.

 

When she first started in direct selling, my grandmother was lectured by a woman who belittled her and said that she was “not glamorous enough” to make it in the beauty industry. Rather than discouraging her, this experience empowered her. JAFRA values are rooted in helping everyone realize true and pure beauty. Anyone who wants to be glamorous absolutely can be, that is after all one of the main points of cosmetics!

 

Webp-net-resizeimage-(4).jpg



I had a similar experience in the fashion industry. When I first started, the standard sizes were XS-L. Instead of following the “rules,” of couture, we began making fashion to fit all sizes. Every time I heard somebody say, “I love your designs, too bad you probably don’t have my size,” it was my great pleasure to say, “We do have your size, absolutely. If it is not in stock, we can custom make any size.” This enabled more people to enjoy our creations, and it greatly expanded our business. We also experienced some bullying. A few store buyers (we won’t mention their name here! LOL!) laughed at us when they found out we offered sizing lower than XXS and larger than 5XL. They asked in condescending tones, “Who would wear that?!” ... Well, many people do wear those sizes, and our business does quite well with those sizes, thank you!

 

Understanding beauty and glamour are an attitude, everyone can be beautiful and glamorous. If someone tries to tell you differently, it likely has nothing to do with you. Rather, this is someone projecting their insecurities or anger onto you. It is your choice to walk away from that anger and find your real beauty.

 

Seeing the beauty in who you are will help you navigate negative experiences where you may be on the receiving end of somebody’s bullying. This happened to my grandmother when she was lectured and called “not glamorous enough.” Her self-confidence enabled her to brush those comments aside and persevere in making her dreams come true despite what anyone thought of her. When you see your true beauty, you also see the beauty of all people. This opens a world of joy and opportunities in business as well—you will continually learn new things and make new friends! People who live differently than you come with a new perspective and a different outlook that can show you new ways of looking at things. By practicing appreciation of others you will also find that your business will expand.

 

Like my grandmother, we must unshakably believe in ourselves and our beauty. Back in 1956, she knew it was time for a company to understand the true meaning of beauty and to create products one can fully stand behind and believe in, so JAFRA was born. True artists in the field of beauty would not discriminate nor turn away anyone who wanted the opportunity. JAFRA offers, The Freedom To Be You, since then and still today.

 

If we practice appreciation of ourselves and others, we will expand our horizons, and become unstoppable. Practicing appreciation, respect, and compassion is to be a true leader!

The Makeup of a Fragrance

Have you ever fallen in love with a certain fragrance and you couldn’t figure out why?
The scent of roses or wildflowers gets me every time! There’s a reason why there are certain scents that hit close to home or stimulate us.
 
Psychology has proven that there is a strong connection between smell and memory. We prefer aromas that are reminiscent to strong memories and this affects the fragrances we are drawn to (or can’t stand)! Yup, straight facts. There are 3 aromatic notes to consider when trying to find a perfume that’s closest to your most beloved memories.
 
 
  1. Top Notes

 Top notes are like a first impression on a blind date: they’re instant and commonly don’t change after the first encounter. So, the next time you spray perfume on yourself, breathe in and let your olfactory organ do the work. The first thing that came to mind once you smelled it is your perfume’s top note! 
This component of a fragrance is said to be “vibrant and volatile.” Pear, aldehydes, peach or bergamot are some of the few scents that are used in top notes.
 
 
  1. Heart Notes

 This note is really important because it’s the core of a fragrance. It’s the overall essence, feel, purpose, and identity! Heart notes are like seeking your soulmate. If you’re not feeling it after the first date, then it’s not the one for you. Remember how I mentioned that we connect to aromas that remind us of strong memories? That’s why it’s important to connect to this note the most.
Jasmine, gardenia, rose or orange blossom are aromas that are usually found in heart notes.
 
  1. Base Notes

 This last note finishes the beautiful scent story of a perfume. Base notes are like the everlasting feelings for the soulmate you’ve finally found. It comes later and lingers the longest. So when friends or coworkers tell you, “o-m-g you smell good, what perfume are you wearing?” they’re smelling the base notes of the fragrance you’re wearing. This is the note that solidifies your final olfactory memory of the perfume. 
Regular base notes consist of amber, sandalwood, vanilla or gourmand. Paris et Moi by P. Courtière is an all-time favorite in lingering scent and overall smell.
 
 
 
Here are 2019’s top-selling fragrances that might become your top fave too!

 

What are some of your favorite JAFRA fragrances that tug at your heartstrings? We want to know! If you haven’t found your fragrance soulmate JAFRA Beauty, I hope these tips lead you to the one that’s meant for you.
