Indulge in the festivities for choosing a organic and "greener" lifestyle for 2012! Cheers and stay tuned for more EYE ON GREEN Year in the Best of Organics! http://www.eyeonbeauty.info

First, A "Green thought" from the Publisher - Terry Ruvo

Greedy Society -   Cold Holiday at Heart 
GREED is one word that I dislike when describing the holidays. Not only is "Greed" evident in our daily lives, it has tarnished and diminished the true meaning of the holiday spirit.  We all know that we live in a self-centered society with meaningless materialist ways of living and thinking.  So, as I sit warm in my home, drinking hot cocoa, I can not disregard the coldness of the holidays at heart. We sense it - even in  “our own backyards.”  Every year I take this time to recap and rediscover the goodness that is still “green” in my heart and life. I walk in the “other mans shoes” – humanity, that is not as fortunate as I, and is hardly “warm” enough for the holidays.  This is how I cleanse my body, mind and soul.  For me, this is the one way; I refresh my senses for the New Year.  I am thankful for my family and my new friends in EYE ON GREEN Magazine.  There is no greed -only Green here -  only generosity and heart warming caring. Educating for all that seek a “greener” walk of life.
May 2012 Bring you warmth and kindness and many blessings!

This month of December I have received many requests on featuring the best 12 Beauty items of the year. For the October launch of EYE ON GREEN I gave a serving of outstanding Green beauty that covered cosmetics as well trimming down your waste line in an Eco-friendly way.  For November's issue I reviewed and used green personal care products that gave me beautiful salon results.  The first 2 issues of  EYE ON GREEN gave many viewers an eyeful of fresh and clean cosmetics many of which can be incorporated  into a "greener" lifestyle.

applying Argan oil to ends
Using the oil as a spa scalp treatment, is only one select secret it harbors. I use it daily applying the oil to the ends of my hair. It gives my dry ends a luxurious golden shine. I recently have added it to my makeup foundation. A little "golden drop" has diminished my fine lines around my eyes and has softened my complexion and texture. It has healed my skin back to rejuvenated youthfulness. I saw immediate results. Mara Kesh 100% Organic Argan oil  - is the "fountain of  Youth." I beleive that we will be seeing more of this product in a multitude of ways for reclaiming skins beauty.. But don't forget...Mara Kesh Select is 100% Organic.... Superior in my Eyes!

 Lip Service in Season for all
Flip Flop
 The #1 question that I get asked for holiday lips... "What color is best for the season and will it look good on me?"  Typically, I avoid giving a "ginger bread" answer...because "ginger" may not be the desired taste for all. The same goes for lipstick, lip cremes, or the balms.  There are so many "pallets" for lip color.   The right color or texture is just the "tip of the iceberg." Let's see if I can chisel way down to two most important aspects. First, color vs. texture.  Picking the right shade is most important as the color should be used in all seasons - not just holidays.  Deciding on coverage won't make a difference if the color is wrong for your completion. There are three most important colors that all women should have in their makeup arsenal.  The 3p's  - The Pinks, The Peaches & The Plums.  EYE On Beauty offers these all season dazzlers at an affordable price of $12.00 - includes shipping .  There is no other lip creme out there that is "paraben & cruelty" free for this price...The Lip Service is lasting on the Lips and never on the hips.... no-fail-no guilt  - just color.  Check out EYE On Beauty's cosmetic line here:  http://www.eyeonbeauty.info

Natural Beauty - Ready To Wear

Hope Necklace
There is something about wood that fascinates me.  The richness of pine, the warmth of a cedar closet...there is nothing like natural wood.  My most favorite wood necklace  was a carved cross that my father made for me out of an oak tree branch. He tied a cord to the top and I wore it around my neck. I still have it over twenty five years passed. Beautiful, and natural, as the hands that made it for me.  Since, then I was always attached to wood. I have designed a simple shoe-string wood bead necklace.  Because of its simplicity, there is a huge attraction to it.  Handmade and ready to wear in all seasons and will never go out of style.  Men, women ,children and teens enjoy wearing it as a  necklace or bracelet.  Priced at $10.00 each with a free ship. When ordering  please note for a guy/girl. Guys will receive earth-tone beads. Women will receive earth tone  beads with a ornate flower bead in the center. A "Portion of proceeds will go to the poorest part of Africa. I am in the process of looking for a foundation." Terry Ruvo - Founder EYE ON GREEN MAGAZINE
