Beyond Beauty Blog: The Surgeon's Secrets

Going to the beach for Labor Day? Be camera ready!

Are you traveling to the beach this upcoming weekend for one summer last hurrah? If so, here are three things you can do to look like a camera-ready celebrity, straight from beauty expert  Dr. Michelle Yagoda:

1.  Hair:  Did you know that hand lotion is a great frizz tamer and curl setter? That’s right! Just put some in your hands, rub them together and apply it to your hair when you get out of the pool or shower. You’ll have cover-girl glamorous, beach tousled hair in an instant.

2. Nails:  While not necessarily safe for everyday use, there’s nothing quite like a gel manicure and/or gel pedicure to keep your nails in tiptop, shiny shape — even through sand and salt!

3. Eyes:  Here’s a secret tip recently learned by Dr. Yagoda from celebrity make up artist extraordinaire, Julie Morgan! Apply Chantecaille black eyeliner pen to line your upper lid (she said it was nearly indelible… and it is day five and counting!). Next, glue Ardell short flare lashes with duo lash glue in black to your upper eyelid (or, have a professional makeup artist do it for you!). Then, leave it there for up to two weeks! Voila! Who knew? You can wash your face each evening and even wash the eye shadow off of the upper eyelids. According to Julie, this will last for a full two weeks!
