Judith's Tip: 60 Second Rule for a Fabulous Finish

03/31/2010, posted by: , under: Concealer Tips

Judith’s 60 Second Rule:  Wait a full 60 seconds for your skin to absorb moisturizer, makeup, sunscreen or foundation, and pause after each new layer of concealer or neutralizer. This will help create a longer lasting and polished finish. My customers love this technique and the polished results when they use my Fabulous Finish™.



Thanks for Great 60 Second Tips
Dear Shelby, I am so glad that my 60 Second Tips have helped you and that you have found that Fabulous Finish has been helpful to you in covering your acne. I understand the frustration acne and blemishes create for all who just want a clear and lovely complexion. I am glad that you are finding that Fabulous Finish helps give that effect. Rememember to keep to a good daily skin washing and nurturing regimen! Please keep in touch and many thanks... Always, Judith

As a life stylist, it’s my job to juggle many different projects in one day. I might be working with a client on her wardrobe for a few hours and then I’ll need to dash home to complete a client’s shadowbox project and then jump on a phone call to discuss an upcoming birthday event. Whatever it is, I’m a master at juggling multiple tasks!

Invisible Threads

Since I founded Judith August Cosmetic almost 30 years ago, women from all over the world have reach out to let me know how they have been affected by their own cosmetic challenges. Some simply want to improve their appearance by camouflaging minor flaws like under eye circles and fine lines, while others are affected by greater challenges such as birthmarks and roseaca or the after effects of cosmetic surgery bruising, and of course tattoos and makeup!

How to hide Post Surgical Scars Beautifully and A Tale of the Most Amazing Breast Reconstruction Surgery Few Women Know About

08/25/2014, posted by: Judith August, under: Cosmetic surgery

Camouflage Cosmetics and Concealers have always been a blessing for women who have undergone facial and cosmetic surgeries. It’s wonderful to be able to hide every sign of scarring until things fade beautifully on their own. But what’s even more gratifying for me personally, is to hear stories of women who have benefited from my products after serious, non-elective surgeries.

How to Have Flawless Legs: Say Goodbye to Spider Veins!

Summer will be here before you know it, and that means flirty sundresses and a lot more skin on display, especially legs. Every year at this time, I start worrying whether my legs are worse than the year before. Are they too pasty? Did a tiny crop of spider veins appear over the winter?

Facial Exfoliation: Too Much of a Good Thing?

05/09/2014, posted by: , under: Face

Many dermatologists recommend that you gently exfoliate no more than once or twice a week. Why? The top “horny” layer of your skin does have useful functions. One of them is protecting the fresh skin below from harmful UV rays. In addition, rough and frequent exfoliation can damage the newer skin cells. Sometimes it takes awhile to find the right exfoliating products (and frequency of use) that will be best for your own skin

Glossary: So Many Foundations, Concealers and Neutralizers Oh My!

Did you know? “Foundations” are the foundation of the cosmetic market? With 20 billion dollars in worldwide sales in 2011, and continued growth, foundations appear to be one of the strategic products for cosmetic brands. This choice is not to be neglected or taken lightly. As Women, we need to take our time and test several products to decide which one will suit our body chemistry and skin type.

Think about Gray… what happens in your brain… “ugh… gray… gray skies, gray pallor, gray ashes.” Now… think ORANGE! And not just any orange, but the newest color of the design season… “TANGERINE TANGO!” nice how just the thought brings you smiles!

Winter Skin Care Tips

Winter Skin Care Tips
Winter Skin Care Tips: Changes in temperature and humidity during the blustery winter months (think indoor heating, hot showers and baths) eliminate the ever-important oils and moisture from your skin, which contributes to dryness, flakiness and, in the extreme, cracking of the skin. But…just because it’s cold outside, it doesn’t mean you can’t have healthy, beautiful skin.

If you were to examine your make-up brushes under a microscope, you’d be quite surprised (and likely a little disturbed) by the visual. In addition to old make-up and dead skin cells, your brushes harbor pore-clogging dirt, bacteria and oils. The good news is there’s a simple, inexpensive solution!
