DEX Lifestyle Resolutions

We asked a few loyal clients and staff from DEX New York what they hope to do a bit better - from fashion to beauty, lifestyle, and relationships - in 2009.
Diane S., beauty client
"Quit smoking and drink plenty of water daily so my makeup application is more effective. After all, I need to work on the inside out too."

Laura L
, sales manager
"Wear sheer stockings again because they make me walk tall." "Brush my hair upside down before yoga because it stimulates more chakras." "Ride my bicycle along the river every weekend with my dog." And, "stop kissing my doormen because they get in trouble."

Raven R., atrium assistant
I am planning on making 2009 my year to blossom as a Stylist/MUA at DEX. My goal is to be ready to take on Fashion Week fall '09. Look out New York! Get ready to be Ravished by Raven.

Catalina C.
, Makeup Artist
"To enjoy life, appreciate the lessons, nurture the small things that enrich our existence and manifest love in everything I do."

Anna P., beauty client
"I want to be able to take more risks in my daily beauty regimen, and not be so stuck on the same old smoky eye, and nude lip."

John C., graphic designer
"I want to make all of my designs reflect more of the fierceness of the DEX brand."

Scott W., hair designer
"To be the best that I can be, and work with more amazing beauty and fashion editorial photographers."

Naomi P., hair designer
"To be able to meet more of my goals, helping others in the process, learning more of what I do best, and spending more time with the ones who mean the most to me in life."

Elizabeth G., beauty client
“Wear more lace-front hair additions. This is the time to spruce up your tresses, and a girl cannot have too many looks because it is what you are seen for most in New York City.”

Hide Your New Year's Hangover

Here are some easy tips on how to conceal your New Year's Eve night of too many cocktails: Perfect advice on how to start the year with a fresh look.

> To relieve facial swelling, place a few ice cubes in a washcloth and hold it under your eyes for 5-10 minutes. Or if you are one of those home spa types, try using one of those cooling eye gel ice packs

> Give yourself a lovely hot bath with AHAVA Dead Sea Salt

> Hydrate your skin with a daily body moisturizer

> When your eyes are puffy camouflage them with a concealer, then brighten them up with DEX New York's Mineral Illuminator - it makes your skin look well rested.

> If your skin is looking a little dull, add a little shimmer to a tinted moisturizer or foundation. Try DEX New York's Mineral Tinted Hydrator ($38). Glides on effortlessly to create a water-resistant veil of natural looking coverage. One of our best sellers.

> Take the focus off of your tired mood by accentuating your lips with a bright moisturizing lipstick or lip gloss. DEX New York's Bond Street Red, Fifth Avenue Merlot, or Christopher Street Orchid creates a very put-together look. No one will never no!

> Stay away from coffee. Opt for green tea and lots of water. Eat a healthy brunch, then you can have a swell New Year's cocktail.

Be fierce, and look your best!

New Year's Eve Hair

If time is not on your side in getting ready for your New Year's Eve fete, don't fret. DEX New York studio's hair designers reveals one of the simplest tricks to dress up your hair in the knick of time.

Rollers (hot or not) is a great way to start. On dry hair let them set for 30 minutes while your doing other girly things in getting ready. After you take the rollers out, put some hair serum on your hands and squeeze it throughout your hair. Then brush it for a more natural look or just separate hair with fingers and pin up each curl to give a more glam look. Lastly, spritz hair with a finishing spray to keep the style set in place for a long night out.

If doubt is taking over, call the experts at DEX New York

New! Modern Minerals.

DEX New York Modern Minerals™.
The New, Revolutionized Mineral Makeup:

DEX New York Cosmetics is a line of mineral-based makeup made from natural minerals, including zinc oxide; ultramarine (derived from lapis lazuli) and titanium dioxide. They are mined from the earth and triple milled into fine powder. Normally, only foundations are made from pure minerals, but with DEX New York Modern Minerals™ - mineral-based makeup you will also find pure minerals in blushes, eye shadows, bronzers, tinted moisturizers, concealers, and liquid foundations.

DEX New York Modern Minerals™ is considered by both consumers and professional makeup artists to be the best mineral makeup available with no use of fragrances, dyes, mineral oil, and parabens, which are all common causes of allergies. This makes DEX the ideal mineral-based makeup for both plastic surgery patients and women with sensitive skin. DEX hosts heavy camouflaging properties, and because it contains natural pigments rather than dyes, the colors tend to be deeper, richer and longer lasting. Women with acne scars, rosacea, and broken capillaries tend to favor it, as do pro makeup artists, because it can be used without fear of allergic reactions.

IPhone Delivers Couture in Seconds.....

Just another fabulous reason to buy an IPhone:
The New software application, which allows users to watch runway shows on their iPhones, is now available for download on iTunes. We think this will revolutionize the way A-list types pass away the minutes—hours?—waiting for the Marc Jacobs show to start. You probably would not attend any show for that matter - just watch the shows from your IPhone.

Backstage Beauty '09: Pat McGrath

We don’t want to state the obvious, but we feel compelled to point out the Robert Palmer video-loving that was going on at Louis Vuitton. Sure, you could also link legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath’s backstage beauty look to the collection’s “sexy, saucy, Parisian forties” nuances, with the cheek contouring, smoky eye, and glossy red lip, that Vuitton glamazons wore so well down the runway for Spring 2009.
