Best Under Eye Mask How to get Brighter Eyes

Mom Sunday Spa Night: Best Under Eye Mask & other Tips for Brighter Eyes

Hey Mamas,

In honor of tonight’s 90th Annual Academy Awards, I’m glamming up with the best under eye mask and watching the awards show in style.

(Yes, I have a babysitter and my hubby, in order to make this magical evening happen!

And, yes, my daughter is having a nasty temper tantrum and crying from her room while I wrap up this blog post. #MomLife )

But I digress. Here we are Mom Sunday Spa Night!

Grab your glass of Rose, and head to the bathroom vanity, with me, as I share my pick for the best under eye mask, plus my favorite beauty routine for creating red carpet worthy eyes.

Best Under Eye Mask

Oh K! Ginseng & Eucalyptus Under Eye Mask does the trick for tired mom’s seeking a boost of brightness and a powerful punch again puffiness. I’ve tried many eye masks, thus one has earned my Pam’s Pick approval for best under eye mask, hands down. Can I have Amen, mamas?

Achieving Bolder Brighter Brighter Eyes

Naturopathica Vitamin K Brightening Serum is quite possibly the best thing that happened to me while I was pregnant. It served me well during my months of nursing, and it continues to be a favorite and new #HustleLikeAMom duties prevent the required beauty sleep.

IT Cosmetics Brow Power Pomade helps to lift, sculpt and fortify brows, prepping them into tip top shape. Then, IT’s buddy, IT Cosmetics Brow Power Powder in universal taupe gives a completely natural filling of warm color to the brows. The combo frames the eyes,  and gives you a faux face lift. Yup, IT’s that fabulous.Younger Looking Brighter Eyes Pamela Pekerman

IT Cosmetics Perfect Lighting Radiant Touch Magic Wand is there when you haven’t made time the under eye mask or the brightening serum. Just like magic, the wand corrects all that needs to be corrected (and some days, that’s a heck-of-lot!!), evens out under eye tones and gives that much needed brightness to make eyes look youthful

Beauty by PopSugar is launching March 11st and you will love this thoughtfully crated collection of products, especially Thick+Thin Mascara which gives volume and helps you hit every hair with the right amount of mascara. Then there is that Online Liquid Eye Liner which totally does away with smudging thanks to wickedly smart gliding wheel delivery system. You have to check this one out, mamas! Lastly, the Beauty by PopSugar Eye Shimmer in Out of This World is the perfect glow for day or night functions.

Friday 5 Finds by Pamela Pekerman

Red Carpet Ready Beauty: FRIDAY 5 FINDS

Hey Mamas,

I’m coming at you with Red Carpet ready goodies in this week’s Friday Five Finds including how to get fuller lashes, glowing skin, even a sweat absorbing garment shield.

So, whether you’re going on a date with the hubby, planning a fun dress-up Oscars viewing party at home, or simply thinking ahead to wedding season, you’ll want to check out my Pam-tested picks.

Red Carpet Ready Beauty Finds by Pamela Pekerman

Red Carpet Ready Lashes

Go big or go home with Grande Cosmetics Mascara, formulated to boost lash volume. Plus, it’s waterproof. So, enjoy that Kleenex moment while Emma Stone accepts her win for Best Actress in La La Land.

PS Use this in the morning when you’re running off to daycare and have no time for any other makeup … or even a shower. It’s an instant fake-awake that will certainly distract from the fact that you might be wearing the same shirt you picked the kids up in, the previous night. #ItHasntHappenedYet #ItCouldHappen

Red Carpet Ready Dress No Mess

I’m a sweater. Wearing long sleeve dresses, has always been a problem. When I was little my mom would cut up some special fabric and sow oval shields under my armpit area, which would absorb my sweat.

These days, I use Hollywood Fashion Garment Shields, disposable apparel shields. I have no shame in my sweat-free game. #KeepingItHonest

Red Carpet Ready Skin

I’ve been testing a lot of masks, lately and I love The True Tincture Chamomile Mask from belif. Belif which stands for “believe in truth” is a cleaner-greener brand that’s becoming a staple in my beauty repertoire.
This tincture mask is loaded with real, organic chamomile flowers that will sooth and deeply hydrate your already glorious face. #EcoMama

Red Carpet Ready Glow

Never have I been so in love with a bronzer, as I am with Vita Liberata Trystal Minerals Self-Tanning Bronzing Minerals. I’m not sure about the “self-tanning” part, and the claim to long lasting glow with prolonged use.

But, I can 10000% confirm my skin has never looked better, than when I apply this miraculous bronzing dust of goodness. #GoldenGoddessAlert

Red Carpet Ready Body

I promise to stop selecting finds from This Works, when This Works stops working!

If you’re looking to cover up skin imperfections and walk your Red Carpet with head-to-toe confidence, lather on Perfect Legs Skin Miracle. It helps diminish the appearance of skin discoloration and scars. #SexyLegsContest


Get Red Carpet Ready at Home, Pam’s Picks BELLA New York Magazine

Happy 2016!

I hope you had an amazing holiday season and are revved-up for 2016. I am!!

If you’ve been following my Instargarm posts you’ll note my push to get greener and cleaner, but in a manageable I-live-in-the-real-world-can’t-avoid-all-the-bad-stuff way. You know what I mean.

So, it only makes sense the the January/February installment of Pam’s Picks in BELLA New York Magazine focuses on smart products and tips that will help you get ed carpet ready at home in a healthy, time-saving manner. I even enlisted one of my favorite Green Gurus to share DIY beauty recipes, you won’t want to miss.

Lance Bass BELLA NY January 2016

Run out to your local Barnes & Noble and grab a copy of the latest issue, featuring our wonderful cover model Lance Bass. Then, once the kids or pets are tucked in, make a massive cup of tea (current obsession: TEAVANA’s Maharaja Chai Oolong Tea – perfect cure for the blistering weather).

Too cold to go out, today? HELLO 15 degrees!!

I’ve naturally posted all the scoop below. But, do get your issue so you can see how #teamBELLA is shaking things up in 2016 and helping you stay fierce, fabulous and focused on always being your best. Beauty Defined By You, that’s the BELLA babe way. Pam's Picks Red Carpet Ready

Pam’s Picks: Get Red Carpet Ready at Home

There’s nothing more frustrating than knowing a big soiree is on your calendar, and not having the time or resources to properly prepare. Fear not fabulous ladies and gents! I’ve found the ideal, time-saving ways to glam-up from head to toe, so you can always be your best you. Chin-chin.

Get Fit Forget about lifting weights and crunching away. Recently I’ve been won over by the fluid (pardon the pun) moves and easy-to-follow videos that come with the Fluidity Barre. Ballerinas like Misty Copeland and the late Maya Plisetskaya achieved healthy, toned bodies, and now you can get that same look without leaving the house. This fitness tool is a game changer for anyone with back issues that’s still looking for a way to achieve a flawless body. The focus is on using your own body weight in multiple directions to sculpt gracefully. And, since we don’t all have a separate exercise room, I love that the unit folds down to five inches and stores under my bed. $494

Get Glowing The best accessory for a stellar night out is glowing skin. Green beauty guru, author of the New York Times best-seller Gorgeously Green, and my new BFF Sophie Uliano shares her top DIY recipes for red-carpet-worthy skin. For more recipes, check out Uliano’s latest book Gorgeous For Good, or visit SophieUliano.com.

Gorgeous Glow Mask “This mask will gently remove impurities and allow your natural glow to shine,” says Uliano.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp Bentonite or French Green Clay
  • 1 tbsp green tea (brew tea bag in hot water for 10 minutes)
  • 1tsp activated Charcoal (find capsules at health food store)
  • 2 tsp coconut oil (heat until liquid form is reached)
  • 1 tsp Aloe Vera gel
  • 5 drops tea tree oil
  • 5 drops lavender essential oil

Mix all ingredients into a thick paste. Apply to your face with a brush (a cosmetic fan brush is best). Leave for 20 minutes. Rinse off thoroughly with warm water. Moisturize as usual.

Get Styled No time to shop for your big night out? Check out TrunkClub.com. This is not a stylist-in-a-box service like so many on the market. Here, they actually gave me a real stylist–hi, Megan! We emailed, chatted on the phone, and even bonded over our love of rosé wine. Most importantly, Megan was able to nail down my needs for a major celebrity event BELLA is hosting in Los Angeles. Oh, and she got the hubby styled up as well! Yes, ladies, Trunk Club not only caters to women, men were actually the original customers. Tip: Look into their custom suits for guys. Overall, expect great service, no monthly fees, no commitments, and no shipping costs. Make an appointment at their NY Clubhouse, 457 Madison Avenue, 646-780-5310.

Always Be Your Best You Pamela Pekerman Signature

Pam’s Picks: Camera Ready Essentials, BELLA NYC Magazine

Sunday’s Golden Globes officially kicked off the 2015 Red Carpet season. Being a lover of glamour, I live for this time of year, because it embodies Always Be Your Best You. Now, if you’re thinking, “Pam, this is beyond anything I can ever accomplish,” I say “think again”.

In the January/February issue of BELLA NYC and BELLA Long Island, I share beauty and fashion finds that make you feel like you have your very own glam squad. If you only invest in two items from this list Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray and SPANX Skinny Britches Short should be it. I use the spray and the shorts every single day to ensure my makeup stays flawless and my post-prggers tummy stays in place.

PS What do you think of our gorgeous cover model Olivia Munn? She’s a true BELLA babe – beauty, brains and sass. If you’re picky with what you watch, like me, you will not regret investing your precious free time into watching her and the rest of the amazing cast of The Newsroom. Every single word on this show must be heard, and not a single gesture is to be missed.
