Beauty 101 - Keratin Treatments

My hair is frizzy and unruly and I am so frustrated. Across the counter products don’t seem to help. What can I do? 
Amy, Warm Springs

The humidity of summer can make the greatest hair look wild and frizzy. 

Besides moving to Alaska, what’s a girl to do!

Beauty 101 - Eyelash Extensions

I am thinking about getting eyelash extensions but am unsure what to ask to know that I am getting them done safely. Can you help? 
Tiffany, Covington

Tiffany, all eyelash extensions are not created equal.  Eyelash extensions done incorrectly or with inferior products can result in eye infections, swollen eyes and a loss of your natural eyelashes.  However, when done correctly and with high quality products, they can be absolutely beautiful!

Beauty 101 - Eyeliner
Is it safe to line the inner rims of my eyes with my favorite eyeliner? 
Carole, Clifton Forge

Lining the inside of your lash line can be a challenge for several reasons. 

The makeup wears off faster, can mess with your vision and make you prone to an icky eye disease.

Beauty 101 - Makeup Brushes

Merle Norman Cosmetics
Main Street, Covington

“How important are makeup brushes to my overall finished makeup look?”

Anne, Covington

Confession: Although I’ve always been up on the latest and best beauty products since my early twenties, I realized years later that one part of my makeup routine was shamefully lacking – good quality makeup brushes. 

I used to be content to take my mom’s castoffs and freebies from department store gift sets.

Beauty 101 - Face Cream
By Annette Comer
Merle Norman Cosmetics
Main Street, Covington

“I recently purchased a face cream that came with a thin plastic lid over the product under the lid. Should I keep it or toss it?” 
Beverly, Covington

Many products come with the thin white lid over the product that has to be removed in order to use the face cream. 

Believe it or not, this lid has a valuable function.
