    Organizing Your Makeup To Look Great

    in Self Help

    Do you use all the make-up you own or do you keep in just in case?  Are you still using the same products you used 5, 10 or 15 years ago?  Do you need tips to help you organize your make-up so you daily routine will be quicker?  Join me and Viviane Aires Skincare specialist and makeup artist, founder of "Be Bonita!," a women's lifestyle brand as she shares tips and techniques to help you organize your make-up.

    Viviane Aires is a makeup and skincare expert enabling women and men to realize the full potential of their inner and outer beauty.  Having specialized in skincare for over 14 years now Viviane was just a little girl when she received her first beauty lessons.  The classes met in her home in Bahia, Brazil.  At night, Viviane would watch her mother - no matter how long a day she’d had – wash her face before bed. Those early lessons filled Viviane with a passion for beauty and self-care that burns just as brightly today as it did years ago when eagerly collecting her mother’s secrets.

    In addition to those early moments of education in Brazil, Viviane has gained skincare expertise in Montreal, Panama, Tahiti, and Bermuda, observing each country’s fashion, beauty, and skincare trends.  Her lifelong study, diverse international experience (including her own beauty pageant participation in Brazil and modeling/dancing career in Japan), and cosmopolitanism make Viviane Aires a beauty expert of top caliber.
