February Staff Picks

Alexandra's Favorite Products

Winter may be in full swing, but that doesn’t mean your days have to be dark and dreary. Brighten things up with a little color—you can start by changing up your makeup routine. Have a few colors you want to try? Have some you never wear? When you branch out, you’ll discover it’s the little things that make a big difference in how you look and feel.
 
This month, we asked Alexandra Kiefer, Marketing Coordinator for JAFRA USA, about her favorite colors to rock this season. From bold nail polish to evening eyeshadow, she dishes on must-have JAFRA shades to try.
 
Your go-to nail polish this season?
It has to be our Beyond Brilliant Gel Nail Lacquer because long-lasting nails are essential. I love it in Raging Raspberry.
 
The lip color that goes great with everything?
Our Royal Jelly Luxury Lipstick in Beige Chiffon. It’s my everyday go-to. I have one with me at all times!
 
A lip color you were hesitant to try but ended up loving?
Our Full Coverage Lipstick in Berry Vamp. Sometimes bold is better.
 
What’s your everyday eye makeup routine? What about your going-out eye makeup routine?
Every day: Our Eyeshadow Perfecting Primer on eyelids, a nude shadow like High Shine Powder in Beige Shimmer, our Eye Pencil under the eye, and a long-lasting mascara like our High Definition Waterproof formula.
Going out: Start with primer, then do a smoky eye using the Powder Eyeshadow Trio in Cappuccino or Drama, and follow up with winged eyes using our Liquid Eyeliner and mascara.

 
Your perfect blush?
Our Long Wear Crème Blush is absolutely amazing. My fave shade is Cashmere Peony.

Building A Fragrance Wardrobe

4 Scents You Need

A fragrance wardrobe? Yeah, it’s a thing. Just like you’ve outfitted your closet with stylish staples like a little black dress and the perfect pair of jeans, you need a well-rounded fragrance collection that has the right scent for every occasion.
 
Choosing a fragrance can be overwhelming, especially with the abundance of options available. And once you make a choice, how do you know when to wear it? Perhaps you own too many you rarely use, or maybe you’ve been stuck on the same one for years. Having a signature scent is great, but it’s important to build a select set of go-to’s that cover your bases.
 
Don’t know where to start? We’ve broken down the four scents every woman needs to stay prepared for anything that comes her way!
 
1. The Everyday Essential
Your everyday scent should be relatively light and versatile. Think fresh and uplifting florals, fruit, or greenery that are inviting, but not overpowering.
We suggest: Gardenia Blossom or Eau d'Arômes.
 
2. The Night Owl
This is your chance to change it up if it’s a night out that calls for it. Grabbing dinner or drinks? Go for a deeper scent with warm or spicy base notes that add after-dark allure to any fragrance.
We suggest: Pastel Mysteria or Adorisse Pure Gold.
 
3. The VIP
As in Very Important Perfume, of course! Break out this scent for special occasions—think dates, weddings, galas, and parties. Go for bolder scents that get attention, whether it’s spicy and warm or sparkling and fresh.
We suggest: Paris et Moi.
 
4. The Scent of the Season
No matter the occasion, you should always have a scent on-hand that feels of-the-moment—one that’s on-trend and practical for the environment. Think light and uplifting notes when you’re showing more skin in hot weather. Go with stronger, warmer notes when you’re layering up for cold weather.
We suggest: Vesen in the summer, Inégale in the winter.

The Royal Jelly Vitamin Infusions Spot Serum with Vitamin C minimizes imperfections with a precision that’s going to make 2017 our best skin year yet. 

New Year’s Resolutions for Your Skin

4 Ways to Focus on You

Now that 2016 has come to a close, it’s time to look forward to a new year—and to recover from holiday festivities. After a season of rich indulgences, it’s important to refocus on health, wellness, and feeling your best.
 
Simply think of it as a season all about you. Whether it’s committing to take more time to yourself or focusing on bettering your beauty routine, we think self-care is important. A great place to start? Your skin—after all, you have it for life! Here are four ways you can treat yourself to the care you deserve (and get long-lasting benefits):
 
1. Hydrate
Moisturizing is the foundation of a healthy complexion. Dryness is more than just dull, flaky skin—it also contributes to the formation of lines and wrinkles. JAFRA’s Vitamin Infusions Extra Hydration Serum with Vitamin E is a highly concentrated, targeted serum that delivers soothing hydration for up to 24 hours. In other words, it’s essential to improving your complexion.
 
2. Protect
The sun and other environmental aggressors do a daily number on your skin. Combine reliable SPF protection with the nourishing, anti-aging benefits of Royal Jelly when you use our multi-benefit Solar Protection Fluid Broad Spectrum SPF 50. In addition to defending against environmental damage, the sheer, lightweight formula protects the skin’s support structure and helps diminish age spots.
 
3. Enhance
If you’re washing your face with hands or a washcloth, you’re missing out on a key opportunity to improve your skin. In addition to lifting and removing makeup and dirt more thoroughly, using a sonic brush like the Royal Jelly Revitalizing Cleanser allows you to gently scrub away dead, dull skin. This stimulates cell turnover and allows you to better absorb the benefits of other skin care products—and gives you a brighter complexion.
 
4. Rejuvenate
Want skin that looks and feels firmer, smoother, and more luminous? Of course you do! We’re obsessed with the new Global Longevity Crème, a multi-benefit anti-aging moisturizer made with JAFRA’s exclusive RoyalActive Peptide to slow the appearance of aging while speeding up skin cell renewal. It instantly makes skin softer and brighter, and provides continuous improvement over time.
