Important facts about your Teen & Tanning!

In recent years there has been a tanning epidemic, mostly among teens. We have all heard that sun tanning leads to cancer, and consequently more and more people have been staying out of the sun. While this makes me very happy, I am still sad to know that not everyone realizes how harmful UV rays in tanning salons are.
I just read this article the other day, and I was shocked to learn about the devastation as more and more girls around the world are seeking beautiful skin at the expense of melanoma. 90% of all skin cancer cases are due …

Colour Couture Sold out on DSN with Brook & Tara

I want to thank everyone who watched the Direct Shopping Network with the fabulous Brook & Tara. Colour Couture was featured, and thanks to you, we completely SOLD OUT! It was tons of fun, and I feel we educated a lot of people about skin products, and the benefits of sunless spray tanning.
I did a demo with some of my girls, and it only took minutes for everyone to realize Colour Couture products are the best in the market. This picture totally says it all.
One side of the girls’ faces was Colour Couture product, while the other was the competition. …

Miss California Latina 2012 Beauty Pageant was a huge success!

I just spent this weekend working with the Miss California Latina pageant contestants in Pasadena, helping them prep for the big event. I went into it knowing it would be a lot of fun, and I would get to meet some wonderful young ladies following their dreams. But seriously, I was totally blown away by these girls!
This was way more than just a beauty pageant, even though these women were stunningly beautiful. These were powerful girls, with serious personalities and fierce ambitions.
Being a Latina myself I could not help but think how wonderful it would have been if we had …

Back to School Beauty: Start young, Stay young!

In the spirit of back to school season, I thought it would be fun to do a blog on preserving your skin! Whether you are the one who is getting ready for school, or you’re getting your children ready for school, or both, don’t forget to make time for skin!
USA Today say’s that 1 in 10 teenagers use Sunless Tanning Products.  That’s great right? Well, a new study finds that teens are slathering on sunless tanning products which is causing more sunburns. Why you ask? They are not being educated on the importance of SPF!
I don’t know about you but, …

Choose your Sunscreen Wisely!

It was a perfect sunny day to Barbeque in Massachusetts, so of course sunscreen was essential! The poor man applied Aerosol Sunscreen to his body before walking over to his grill, not knowing it would still be flammable after it was on his skin.  (OUCH)  He suffered  second-degree burns to his chest, ear and back, the only areas where he applied the sunscreen. 
Aerosol Sunscreens are extremely popular for so many reasons, they are easy to apply and light weight. Its so easy to toss in my beach bag! I don’t know about you but I have always found lotions to be so …

An important message from Colour Couture Sunless Tanning

There is no doubt the latest spray tanning scare is making national headlines. I would love to recommend Monica Blanco and her company Colour Couture to help you with the facts. Colour Couture is actually the first company in Southern California using a revolutionary new tool to protect clients and technicians from absorbing the mist from spray tans in their crucial breathing zones. Blanco uses a small but powerful air-purification filter from Aerovex which instantly removes the particles and sucks them straight into a carbon based filtration system. Aerovex started building these systems for nail salons years ago when they …

Welcome back to the Colour Couture blog! I hope everyone had a great holiday season and a fantastic start to 2012!
I know we’re already heading toward spring and this blog has been quiet for a while, but it’s only because so many new and exciting things have been happening at Colour Couture, like development and launch of a new product line! There has been a lot of hard (but of course rewarding) work going on with that, and I actually just returned from New York, where I was handling the product launch and all the buzz surrounding the …

If you live anywhere in the Los Angeles area, it’s difficult not to get swept up in Fashion Week fever, and of all the events out there, Fashion Minga is certainly one of the most popular!  The event is a high-energy celebration of music, performance, dance, and of course the newest and most innovative fashions.  Last Friday, Colour Couture was in full force at this fall’s Fashion Minga, as special guests of the Party Rock crew.

It’s Back-to-School Time!

College students all around the country are heading back to school this week and next week.  Teachers are coming back to work, as well, and even many corporate office workers are returning from their summer vacations.  People will be looking great – relaxed, tan and glowing.  This means that if you’ve been away from school or work all season, you have a chance to wow everyone when you come back.  But what if you didn’t go anywhere sunny, what if you haven’t had the chance to get that summer vacation glow going?  Here are a couple of back-to-school (or back-to-work!) …
