FLS Beauty Tips by Guest Blogger :: Lena Shkreli

Hair and makeup have always been a passion of mine since I was a little girl. I always used to cut my dolls hair and give them a new style. I would take markers and pretend it were makeup pencils and color their eyes and lips with it. I became a licensed cosmetologist in 2006 and since then have had training in both hair and makeup thru TNG and Goldwell classes. I have done hair and makeup for local magazines in the Metro Detroit Area (Detroit HOUR, Styleline, and Metro Detroit Bride Magazine). I'm a hairdresser and makeup artist at Saks Fifth Avenue in Troy, MI. I also have my own freelance hair and makeup company, FLS Beauty ( offering brides and other women exceptional service in the comfort of their own home or the event venue.

Has the summer heat made your hair feel dry and straw like? Don't have the budget to get a in-salon treatment? Are you into all natural products? Well ladies, here is a great beauty recipe you can make in the comfort of your own home.

The Recipe:

All of the ingredients in this recipe moisturize and soften your hair.

Want long, luscious lashes?! You don't have to buy Latisse. Just go to your kitchen and grab yourself some Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Pour just a small about into a cup. Take a Q-tip, dip it into the oil and apply to the lash line or as close as possible with out getting it into your eye. Do this to your bottom lashes also. Apply every night for at least 6 weeks to notice visible results.
