Beauty for Real Made for You
By Gisel Habibnejad
Beauty products created with on-the-go women in mind who crave easy to apply makeup with long-lasting effects are now made possible thanks to Beauty for Real. Founder and celebrity makeup artist Leslie Munsell worked closely with top laboratories and chemists from around the world to create highly effective products.
With 20 years experience in the beauty industry, Munsell wanted to create a beauty line with the everyday and stylish woman in mind: “Beauty for Real is an affordable, expertly edited collection of indispensable items every woman needs.” In addition, Munsell also creates seasonal lines carried at Aerie for American Eagle Outfitters.
Beauty for Real works towards anti-aging as it contains “ingredients such as plant-derived antioxidants, essential oils, and vitamins.”
Their latest collection includes four exclusive products designed to enhance head-to-toe beauty which were introduced at the launch event held on Thursday, Jan. 16th. The exclusive soiree featured live makeup tutorials by Munsell on model Louise using products by Beauty for Real.
Lip Revival ($14)
An exfoliating lip scrub that hydrates while conditioning your lips for a smooth base to apply lip products. The scrub contains carnauba wax, sugarcane, cinnamon bark, orange and vanilla essential oils.
Total Body Revival ($24)
Much like the Lip Revival, this full-body scrub exfoliates to remove dead skin to ensure healthy skin and smoothness. Ingredients include raw sugar, sugarcane extract, rapeseed oil, carnauba wax, safflower seed oil, and coffee leaves.
(Total) Glo ($24)
One of the top hits of the latest products, it applies an instant glow to your body. The lightly scented body cream adds the right kind of shimmer for the ultimate summer glow. Together, shea butter and cupuacu butter work to provide moisture. The aloe leaf extract contains light reflecting pigments providing the subtle glow along with hydration.
South Beach Spray ($18)
Your summer look wouldn’t be complete without this amplifying hair spray. Although it doesn’t feel like summer is near, we Miamians have the luxury of being able to pull off beach hair all year long. Ingredients include sea salt, coconut water, and marine extracts, which prove to create authentic beach waves while the meadow foam seed oil keeps your hair in place.
