Cane & Austin's Miracle
Cane & Austin’s
Miracle Pads are here and the name couldn’t be any more perfect. These once a
day wipes are just the thing for tightening the pores and minimizing fine
lines. The secret is they contain 20% glycolic acid- it’s like a mini facial
with one swipe! This is one of the highest concentrations of glycolic on the
market and the result is fresh glowing skin each and every day you use them.
Glycolic Acid is a
natural product that comes directly from sugar cane. Dermatologists use it to
treat everything from aging skin to young acne prone skin. It is considered one
of the best and most popular alpha hydroxyl acids on the market. The texturized
Miracle Pads from Cane & Austin are a great option for at home treatment of
your skin and we’re so excited to offer this product at Katrina Hess Makeup

Boston has so many fabulous places to get married I always love to see it featured in bridal magazines.

Here Comes the Bride!
It’s always a thrill to
be part of someone’s big day. This one was especially nice, from the blue and
gold color scheme in honor of the groom’s Marine service to the fabulous
location- the always lovely Omni-Parker House!
Bride’s always have
such a glow about them. It’s important to enhance that natural beauty, making
them perfectly picture ready, and not covering it up with a heavy cosmetic application.
Photos are by Jill Person from Person + Killian Photography. I love how Jill
not only takes great shots of the wedding itself but also gets all those behind the scenes images that really capture all the memories from
the big day.

Tropical Days and Tropical Nights
If you think you can’t wear bronzer, think again. Katrina
Hess Studios has just gotten two great products from Kevyn Aucoin Beauty that are going to completely change how you think of bronzers.
Tropical Nights by Kevyn Aucoin has a lovely pink
undertone- which is a very hard shade to find. If you’ve always felt like
bronzers just don’t look quite right with your skin tone this one is probably
the solution to your problems. Its sister shade is Kevyn Aucoin’s Tropical Days
which is a wonderful traditional warm gold shade. Both keep their color
beautifully with NO orange undertones. They are so silky and have such finely
ground pigments they are completely weightless, won’t settle in to fine lines,
and look very, very natural.
Subtle is really the word to think of with these
products. You can see there's a slight ombre effect to the pigments in the compact,
having this gradient color really gives nice highlighting. And both shades have
just enough shimmer to give you a natural sun kissed glow. Of course, if you
are totally new to bronzers and need a quick overview, or full makeover,
Katrina Hess Studios is happy to book you an appointment and show you all the
tips and tricks to using these great products.
