Celebrity makeup artist shares her honey-based treatments to bring out any quinceañera girl’s natural beauty.
Quinceañera.com always wants to emphasize having confidence in natural beauty more than anything else artificial.
Jackie Gomez grew up with homemade natural beauty recipes. One of her most cherished childhood memory is of her mother using honey in her daily skin routine. “When mixed with olive oil, it’s the best way to clean your face,” her mother would say. Now, Jackie uses the same tricks she acquired as a young girl on her own skin and she encourages her celebrity clientele to use all natural face masks as part of their daily skincare routine as well. Her reasoning behind her recipes is to highlight the natural beauty of her clientele with natures help.
Most recently, Gomez worked on the Victoria’s Secret models, actress Zoe Saldana and Beyoncé Knowles. Although client confidentiality won’t allow her to share which of these celebrity clients have taken her natural beauty advice, Gomez assures that they all appreciate her knowledge. “One of the best parts of working with them is that I teach them about skincare as well as do their makeup,” states Gomez. Her favorite natural beauty tip is a routine honey moisturizing scrub.
Another one of her go-to homemade natural beauty recipes, which she suggests most everyone to use, is one that combines honey, vodka and pomegranate. She assures this recipe will give a satisfying result. “Vodka serves as toner as it thins out the honey and pomegranate is an antioxidant. So combining them really gives a clean and glowing finish to your skin.”
The young expert is well aware of the many over-the-counter beauty products that already use honey as an active ingredient. She also recommends a few of them with “all-natural honey applied in the most natural form,” to bring out that natural beauty look to any quinceañera girl. She insists that there are “no chemicals and it is safe for everyone to use.”
Gomez does not recommend using any type of skin treatment the night before an event such as a Quinceañera. Rather, she suggests a natural beauty recipe using honey and lime juice as an all-natural face wash twice during the week prior to the celebration. For all quinceañera girls, “it will moisturize the skin, clean the pores, and give the skin a soft and youthful glow.” The recipe she suggests should even be used by any quinceañera girl’s mom.
