If you a girl asking the question then be proud of what you have, if your breasts are small and compact then so be it, they can be…

  • beauty school 101: MASCARA

    11 Aug 2014 | 5:00 pm
      Hi Elfette! Ever wonder what e.l.f. Mascara would be perfect for YOU? It all depends on your lashes and the brush style. My three fav's are shown above and really, you can't go wrong with any of these.  FOR THIN HAIR I love the e.l.f. Essential Volumizing and Defining Mascara for thin lashes that need a boost in volume. This brush is just the right size to layer your mascara several times and get thicker, fuller looking hair without the clumps. FOR THICK HAIR If you've already got the volume, lengh and separation are your targets! The e.l.f. Studio Exact Lash Mascara…
  • BEAUTY SCHOOL 101: HD blush

    10 Aug 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Hey Elfettes! Have you tried the e.l.f. Studio HD Blush yet? If you bought it and are not quite sure what to do, follow my guide above! I've broken down tools vs application technique to make it super easy for you. The lightest application is with a wet sponge, and the deepest is usually with the fingers. For all of these techniques, make sure you use a half-pea size amount or less. This blush goes on great when it's applied a very tiny bit at a time. Build up the color as needed! Artist's tip: Adding a bit of water to your tool/sponge/finger will help the blending of the blush…

The collection is designed in collaboration with Japanese artist Kaori Miyayama. The products not only feature her illustrations but also embody the idea of “translucent dimension”, the essence of her artistic style. I like the soft and elegant shades of Face Color (more images below). The three variations feature different illustrative designs, and there is something quite poetic about them.

Besides the powder foundation, I also purchased Long Keep Base UV and Liquid Foundation UV (Long Keep). (I rarely use primers or liquid foundations, but I was curious about them.)

Each eyeshadow is 0.07 oz., which is a bit larger than the average full-sized eyeshadow (typically 0.05 oz.). Tarte has a few refills sold for $17/0.06 oz., which would make the value of this palette $317.33. Fifteen of the sixteen were really nice with only one being more of a miss.

  • 14 Women's Perfume That Men Should Borrow

    Gaia Fishler
    19 Aug 2014 | 8:37 pm
    Last year I posted a list of masculine-labeled perfumes that I believe women should borrow and make their own. I figured it's time to do the same for men and supposedly-feminine fragrances. Personally, I don't care one bit about the pour homme/pour femme issue and don't think perfume has a gender. There's juice and skin--- if it smells good to you that's all it  matters. But people have been conditioned to make the distinction, especially on the mainstream market. Many niche/indie/artisan brands have abandoned the man/woman labels a long time ago, using neutral packaging and names (think…

    Normally I'm not the biggest fan ("and thank god for that!"-- The Husband), but right now I'm in lust with this shawl/scarf. The painted orange-red leopard pattern is kind of DVF-ish, which is probably why I like it ("so buy a DVF, please!"-- The Husband, again). It's just fabulous and I think how lovely and lively it would look with various winter coats and dresses. According to the Bergdorf Goodman website, the fabric is a modal/acrylic/silk blend, which is somewhat disappointing (I hoped for a warm silk/cashmere knit), but whatever. It's gorgeous. $695 from Bergdorf and Neiman…

Nothing excites me more than the promise of glowy skin that takes perfect to the next level. Often times though, my face makeup routine is really simple. I forgo foundation for concealer and powder on a daily basis. But when I want to step up my game for a fun night out with the girls or a dinner date, I like layering my favorite cheek products for a gorgeous finish that is guaranteed to last.

However, the planned purchases I have made are often the ones that I’m happiest with. So why not apply this knowledge a little further and have the foresight to actually try to save for items I really want? So instead of “going shopping,” I’d be going to XXX store to buy YYY.

    Let’s talk fashion. We all know that wearing dark colors is slimming, but honestly to me, bright, interesting colors are so much more fun. My advice for those branching out of a neutral color palette? Start small with pointed, meaningful accents of color rather than donning a coral sundress. Makeup is a great way to get started in the realm of bright color. Just like cosmetics are an accessible form of designer goods, cosmetics are an approachable way to play with color. If you take a look at the Lip Lust series on the site, you’ll see that bright lip colors are a big theme. My best tip…

    CC cream is widely used on the runways now in lieu of traditional, cakey foundations — get the glow at home! There’s been a lot of buzz in the past couple years about BB and CC creams, and many wonder if these so-called miracle solutions will help them achieve the glowing skin we all desire. I have to admit I too approached the concept with a degree of skepticism, especially as I tend to favor more coverage. But radiance can be yours with the right product and method.

They key to this bag’s expensive look is how sharp it is. It’s got plenty of structure, uncluttered lines and a color combination that…

  • Nail Art Trend: The Reverse French Manicure

    Maria Palma
    14 Aug 2014 | 3:02 pm
    The French manicure is a classic type of nail art, and when I first learned how to give myself this type of manicure (of course, with the kind help of those tip guide stickers), I was ecstatic. Recently I've been seeing the reverse French manicure being featured in magazines and websites. It just might be my new favorite nail art for fall. Pictured here to the right is the red and pink Ruffian manicure by Deborah Lippmann for Honor's fall 2014 runway show.Read more »

    Over the years reviewing hundreds of moisturizers, I every so often come across one where the scent is JUST as impressive as the results.And L'Occitane's newest, Angelica Hydra Vital Gel, is absolutely in this category.Actually, the very fact that the gel uses the Angelica plant in and of itself is very interesting.  Why?  Because the plant, native to France, can grow to a height of up to two meters in just a few days, because of it's exceptional self-hydration properties.  L'Occitane was able to patent its preservation of hydration and, in turn, revitalizing efficacy…

Hell, it still is. Each of the shades will also be sold in the Little Peanuts mini pack which also includes 10 nail decals and costs $13.95. $9.50 each Good Grief!

These colors are all inspired by delicious fruit that you peel, of course. They are bright jellies with shimmer and utterly perfect for summer. All of these were three coats for me since I like my jellies to be as opaque as I can get ‘em. Of course you could also do two coats if you aren’t as nutty as I am. $11.00…

  • Does sunscreen make you Vitamin D deficient?

    Perry Romanowski

    Angela asks…My husband recently read an article (from Australia, but I can’t remember the source now) claiming that we shouldn’t be using sunscreens. I think the basis of the article was that many people are vitamin D deficient, and that applying sunscreen prevents the production of vitamin D. It suggested that the risk of skin cancer was low compared to the vast benefits of vitamin D. In all your experience/ readings, is there any truth to that or can I continue preaching the virtues of sunscreen to my outdoor loving hubbie? And if I were to stop using all sunscreen, wouldn’t I…

    Here is an amazing new technology that could represent a new way to treat skin wrinkles.  It is being tested for use for treating skin burns but I could see how this could be adapted to creating youthful skin for people who are dissatisfied with their wrinkles.  Maybe in the future rather than getting face lifts, people will just be getting their own skin stem cells sprayed onto their face. It’s a very cool technology.  The inventor says it’s like paint spraying.  They take the patient’s own stem cells and spray it onto the arm.  The whole procedure takes only 90 minutes.

It's a daily moisturizer that provides great protection from the sun, while helping to minimize aging. It's a medium-weight moisturizer, and so far hasn't caused me any breakouts or rosacea (I've used it about 10x). Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery has no artificial fragrances, colors or parabens. Since it's a little bit thicker, I feel like I need to use a little more than my lighter moisturizer to get full coverage…

    Essie For The Twill of ItI'm late to the party on this one, but I finally picked up Essie's For The Twill of It and it's love. Essie doesn't do a whole lot of duochromes, so this is a pretty special color. It has a purple-grey base and shifts to purple, teal, and green with the lighting. The finish is a little frosty for my tastes, but it's not too bad. My only complaint is that I needed at least three coats (wearing three coats here) for evenness and opacity. Essie, do more duochromes! I need more duochromes and I love your brush!

    You've probably noticed that gel polishes (sometimes called no-chip polishes) are HUGE right now. They've gone from a professional-only service to being available in every drugstore.  I've never been interested in them because I just don't like wearing the same polish for more than a day or two, and with gel polishes you either have a four week commitment to a color, or you have to endure a 30+ minute removal process.But one day, as I was gazing down at my disappointingly short-lived pedicure, it dawned on me that I could use these on my toes too.  I mean, I always knew I could,…

Weaving your hair is calming and therapeutic, says model stylist Matt Fugate. “I find it enhances creativity, too.” Best of all, anyone can do it -- and if it comes out a little messy, so much the better!

    13 Aug 2014 | 12:47 pm
    Today’s question is, “How to comb your eyelashes.” I actually get this question a lot, because sometimes mascara, no matter how carefully you apply it, can get clumped up. So, the easiest way to make sure that your eyelashes look separated and clean is by using a simple mascara comb. These metal prongs can help to separate the eyelashes in less than one step. The easiest way to do this is to hold the eye taut, so that you have control. Next, look down, and simply take the comb from the middle of the lashes and wiggle up wherever you feel that clumping has happened. Be careful never to…

    I have no idea if these reports are true, since I’ve only seen them on one blog, but…apparently Princess Caroline of Hanover and Princess Stephanie of Monaco might be embroiled in a feud with their sister-in-law, Princess Charlene? Photo credit: Hello magazine Says the post: “…the feud began when Charlene insisted on hiring her jazz singer friend Diana Krall to perform at the gala over Caroline and Stephanie’s wishes. With he royals boycotting the ball, celebrities like Karl Lagerfeld and Lynn Wyatt decided to stay away as well.” If that is true, me no…
  • Karlie Kloss is the new face of Chanel Coco Noir

    Nadine Jolie Courtney
    14 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am
    Victoria’s Secret supermodel Karlie Kloss is the latest Chanel model, serving as the face of their sultry Coco Noir fragrance. The ad features a silhouette of Karlie against a black background, mirroring the scent’s darkness: it’s rose, sandalwood, bergamot and patchouli. I must confess that I don’t get Karlie’s appeal. At all. (But in pop culture these past few years, it has often felt like my tastes and the reigning trends diverged sharply.) She seems like a sweet girl, however, and I have no doubt the glamour that everybody else seems to fawn over in spades…

  • Easy Braided Hairstyles for Summer

    Christina Farrell
    18 Aug 2014 | 6:37 am
    By Michele Meyer for Life & Beauty Weekly This summer’s hottest hairstyle is the braid -- and not just because a cool swept-away style beats having your hair sweat-plastered to your neck. “Braids are having a moment, because there are so many different types -- and can be done yourself quickly without heat or styling tools,” says Jeanie Syfu, TRESemmé’s lead stylist. Weaving your hair is calming and therapeutic, says model stylist Matt Fugate. “I find it enhances creativity, too.” Best of all, anyone can do it -- and if it comes out a little messy, so much the better!

It started with my beloved Oil Free Acne Wash, and moved onto their amazing sunscreens.  Now, as an adult I found new loves in the line and especially adore their body products that give me that added dose of pampering.  I have even gotten Mike hooked on the Rainbath! The scent is uni-sex and very musky, which we both love.  My other love is the classic Body…
  • How to Comb Eyelashes

    Christina Farrell
    13 Aug 2014 | 12:47 pm
    Today’s question is, “How to comb your eyelashes.” I actually get this question a lot, because sometimes mascara, no matter how carefully you apply it, can get clumped up. So, the easiest way to make sure that your eyelashes look separated and clean is by using a simple mascara comb. These metal prongs can help to separate the eyelashes in less than one step. The easiest way to do this is to hold the eye taut, so that you have control. Next, look down, and simply take the comb from the middle of the lashes and wiggle up wherever you feel that clumping has happened. Be careful never to…

  • Cleansing Wipes: Are They Good to Use On Your Skin?

    Renée Rouleau
    18 Aug 2014 | 8:30 am
    In the past few years, cleansing wipes have become popular with people as a way to quickly and easily wipe makeup off their skin without having to deal with water or washcloths. You simply wipe and go.  While they are convenient to use, are they good to use on your face? No. I believe they are not the best choice for healthy skin. Why? Cleansing wipes don’t effectively clean the skin. Instead they just smear dirt, bacteria, oil and makeup across it. Essentially it is like applying cleanser to your face with soap and then not washing it off. The cleansing agents are designed to break…

    We all have women in our life that we look up to and aspire to be like. For me, here are a few that I truly admire.  Actress, Lisa Rinna. I have known Lisa for many years now, ever since I met her in the green room in Dallas at channel 8 when we were both appearing on TV. (I was sharing skin care tips and Lisa was promoting the play “Chicago”, in which she was performing.) Since then, I see her regularly in Los Angeles and give her facial treatments on my quarterly visits there. One of the many things I admire about Lisa is her ability to constantly reinvent herself. In life, we…

    Similar to BFTE’s blink-and-you’ll-miss-it shade Last to Know, but a little softer base color. I suspect that this is the main ingredient in BFTE’s Mermaid, which is marked as an unblended mica. This is a medium-soft gold-yellow with decent coverage, though it can be a bit on the lighter side.…

    Musical Houses

    Origins is famous for its plant-based skincare products, and indeed the brand was one of the first mainstream brands to heavily market itself as a natural skincare brand. Chances are, you've probably heard of any of their skincare ranges, with really cute names like Plantidote, A Perfect World, or GinZing. Despite being around since 1990, the brand is fairly new to me. I've never tried anything from the brand, so it was some interest that I started testing out their Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Collection.

And also on my Instagram page, I've received some questions about how the pencils blended out on drier skin patches like cheeks. So, I decided the only way to resolve this question was to actually do an FOTD (Face of the Day) with the Etude House Play 101 Pencils!

The angle of the femoral neck and the pelvic width are the actual causes of it, not your BMI, so skinny without a thigh gap is more common than you think. Luckily, there are many singers, models and actresses without a thigh gap who know that.

    Nothing brings out the natural wave and curl of your hair like a day at the beach. The combination of salt, heat, and humidity naturally teases and tousles your locks. If you're lucky, chance arranges these curls into something out of a swimsuit catalog. Or you might be like me. More often than not, the beach leaves me looking more like a castaway than an ocean goddess. Rather than relying on hairstyle fate, I prefer to take matters into my own hands with a simple salt-water solution made in the comfort of my kitchen. Besides, sometimes you just want to look like you went to the beach without…

If you have a farmer's market nearby, make sure to stop by soon and take advantage of the summer harvest. It's likely to be piled high with not only fruit, but fresh zucchini, leafy greens, and ripe tomatoes. Oh dear. Now I'm hungry! This cute little project is a wonderful way to celebrate Summer. You can use silicone molds to make tiny fizzies like I did, or larger bath bombs using round molds. Our Plant-Based Fragrance Oils are great…

    As a longtime Clé de Peau user—that’s the $70+ cult-favourite concealer that is, I hate to say it, totally worth it—I never thought a mass brand could even come close to challenging its number-one spot. Clé de Peau is so creamy yet pigmented, it’s always been my top choice for dark circles, veiny lids and anywhere else around the eyes. This is going to sound crazy, but I’ve just discovered a $10 Target jobbie ($12 in the U.S.—when does that ever happen?) that I think I might like even better.

    Just when you think Taylor Swift has finally got her style together (her Met Ball appearance was sooo promising), something like The Giver premiere happens and she reverts right back to the old ways. Red lipstick? Check. Heavy fringe of false lashes? Check. Tons of black liquid liner? Check. It could be 2014 or 2010—you’d never know, because her face is exactly the same. The makeup wears her instead of her wearing the makeup. I always feel like she looks a bit uncomfortable in her red carpet dresses, too: Not that this ballerina-esque Monique Lhuillier number isn’t fabulous,…

    My British beauty crush, Rosamund Pike, looked all kinds of amazing at the London premiere of her new movie, Hector and the Search for Happiness. First of all, she has pregnancy hormones on her side! Though you can’t tell from the clever wardrobe choice, the 35-year-old is expecting her second child—hence the glow-a-licious good skin. (Mind you, she already had that going on when she went practically bare-faced on the red carpet a year ago.) But even though she’s been blessed by the complexion gods, it’s not Rosamund’s skin that’s the standout here.

    This week our makeup warriors are presented with the challenge of creating a full face of makeup for only $30. Drugstore makeup has really evolved in the past few years so that is where I concentrated my shopping efforts. With only $30 to spend, I did have to skip face and  eye shadow primer, but that’s really all I had to give up. I purchased most of these products at Walmart; they have the cheapest regular price makeup in town, however when there is a sale, I shop at Rite-Aid, Walgreen’s and Fred Meyer also. Here’s what I used for my under $30 Face of the Day: Maybelline…

    A major challenge for the fashion minded lies in how to look appropriate while still maintaining a shred or two of individual style at the office.

Her life was dedicated to self-optimization on every front, and along the way, she lifted up thousands of others. Born Sarah Breedlove in 1867, her parents were former slaves who worked as sharecroppers on a cotton plantation in Delta, Louisiana. Sarah was orphaned as a child, then widowed at age 20 with a small child in tow. In 1906 she did three important things: she created a line of hair products, re-named…

Thus leading me to experiment with my own concoction at home.I enjoy this beverage daily (typically after my morning workout) and…

  • MELT-FREE MAKEUP

    Christina Marrale
    14 Jul 2014 | 1:02 pm
    Image via Ah, summer — as much as I hate to admit it, my routine is always a bit more difficult to master during this time of year. In the winter months, I can lather, exfoliate and hydrate with the best of them, but once the warmer temperatures arrive, the 'natural look' is simply more time consuming for me. And it's no wonder — with humid days, hotter nights and an on-the-go schedule, it can be difficult to keep a look intact. After a full on meltdown this past weekend (literally, my makeup melted away completely) i've decided to get back to these essential tricks:Opt for cream-based…

  • {Guest Post from Loxa Beauty} Save My Damaged Hair! Part III: Heat and Over-Styling

    Tiffany Schutt
    15 Aug 2014 | 1:00 am
    Hair health is a matter of biology, just like every other part of our human make-up. Staying hydrated is a must for our survival, and the same rings true for healthy hair. Much of how we style our hair removes necessary moisture for shiny, healthy hair. Heat styling with blow dyers, curling irons and flat irons change the structure of the hair and its biology. Heat changes the hydrogen bonds in our hair, which holds each strand together. Daily blow-drying and heat styling lead to breakage, damage and split ends. It’s important to give hair a break from constant styling. Let hair air dry on…

    Ever envy that one friend who’s never color-treated or damaged her hair, has natural highlights and shampoo commercial-like shine? And then you try to copy her look, only to end up with dry, over-processed hair? Of course you do. We all do! It’s time to end the color-treatment envy and damage cycle once and for all. Color treatments actually change the structure of hair, often resulting in damage and split ends. This breakdown of the hair’s biological make-up creates dry, dull strands that are more susceptible to breakage. Bleaching hair is even harsher than permanent color…

    Dry, dull and damaged hair can be a real drag. No one wants damaged locks and split ends, but it happens. And honestly, we often give our locks a beating when we try to tame it and mold it into place. Here are a few ways that we end up with dry, stringy strands. 5 Causes of Damaged Hair Tight updos – Ponytails and braids offer a great way to sweep hair off the face and to style second day hair. However, when pulled tightly and worn frequently, these styles create weak hair and breakage. Over-washing – The goal of shampooing is to cleanse the scalp from build up in hair follicles and…

    Designer simplehuman has just released two Sensor Mirrors that are really worth a strong look. For the past several years, I’ve played with the idea of getting a lighted mirror installed in my makeup-application area. As someone who is into photography and really sensitive to light colors, crisp images, and good design, I’ve never found something just perfect. I’m so glad that I waited. Little did I know that the geniuses at simplehuman were  designing something that really is perfect for the job. To digress a bit, I’ve owned a simplehuman trash can for at least…

    As nearly everyone knows, Chanel has released a new series of eyeshadow palettes ($61 each). Unlike the pressed powder versions previously released in the U.S., these are “baked” textures that are released in the same format throughout the world. Chanel’s new quads are available at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Bloomingdales. As with Chanel’s past releases outside the U.S., the packaging is the same from the front. The little velveteen pouch, the size and the like is all identical of course. From the back, you can see that the pans are now all…

    If you are an O Magazine reader, you might look at the cover story of O’s September ’14 issue on page 140 for a picture of Cafe Makeup’s owner and editor Liz, who got a haircut makeover by the magazine in June. I’ve always wondered if those magazine makeover features were real, and in this case we can personally verify that, O yes!, this one certainly was. In June, Liz got a haircut that earned her the name “Mrs. Brady” around the office (the back was even worse!). So much for “take off an inch with just a few layers near the face,” right? She…

Given that the cream has sold out internationally in the past, I suppose that it’s nice to know that yours is reserved. If you miss the window, I’m presuming that the product will be made permanent.

    We’ve always been curious about using airbrush makeup systems. Whether watching a pro, or watching a live demonstration, Liz and I have wondered whether airbrush system give a better result and how manageable such systems are. When Temptu offered us a chance to try their system, we took the chance. We opened up the Temptu Flawless Complexion Kit ($170). The company included two foundation colors (the lighter Ivory and medium Beige), Washed Rose Blush, and Champagne Highlighter. Neither of us had any experience with airbrush systems, but the Temptu was quite easy to put together.

    Do you average a full night of sleep for most days during a week? If you don’t, have you noticed the effects of your sleep deprivation? After pulling three all-nighters to study for various nursing school exams, I could see the results of my poor sleep on my face: I was breaking out, dark circles developed around my eyes, and my skin looked pale. In general, my lack of beauty sleep resulted in a ragged appearance, prompting many comments from my peers. These comments suddenly triggered my memory of a blog post Dr. Bailey wrote on how “Your Face is Really More Attractive after a…

    You know what I find exciting? Lipsticks that don’t suck. It’s too easy to find lipsticks that apply dry and you feel like you have to drag them across your lips, leave your lips feeling like you’re stranded on a deserted island, or even worse.. fade away within the hour you apply it. I was really excited to try out Butter London’s new line of lipsticks, because the claim was the exact opposite of everything above- these claimed to be matte, super lush and moisturizing, and last. Usually matte and moisturizing don’t go hand in hand when it comes to lip products, so this was…

I’ve tried other kits that were like this, but where you had to boil the impressions mold and try to push it on to your teeth while it was really hot to kind of, sort of get a mold of your teeth. This kit is different because you actually create a real impression of your teeth, mail it back to the company, and they send you a custom made mold for your top and bottom teeth! This is…

They are soft, frosty shades that apply and blend really nicely.  The look below was a result of wanting to try out the palette and use all the colors.

Basically I was showing you that some high end/more expensive items have suitable duplicates from other brands for much less money.  However, not everything can be duplicated, as I recently found out when I tried to find a less expensive dupe to my Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB Cream.Let me start from the beginning.  My skin has drastically cleared up and has become less oily.

There are some beauty items I will splurge on like foundation, for example.  If I find the right one for my skin type, I "need" to buy it no matter what the cost!  Mascara is so subjective, what works for me, may not work for you, so I spend what I like on mascara if it works.  My philosophy is this:If you spend time and money trying to find a dupe for "that perfect, but expensive, product", you will end up spending more money and time trying to find a…

  • When Saving Costs More Than The Splurge

    19 Aug 2014 | 8:46 am
     A little while back I listed a few Splurge VS Steal items. Basically I was showing you that some high end/more expensive items have suitable duplicates from other brands for much less money.  However, not everything can be duplicated, as I recently found out when I tried to find a less expensive dupe to my Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB Cream.Let me start from the beginning.  My skin has drastically cleared up and has become less oily. YAY!!  What once was a perfect foundation (Ben Nye, Kat Von D, Edward Bess), now provides too much coverage and it can be drying for…

    I think it's fun to buy makeup. I adore certain brands like Chanel, NARS, YSL, etc.  But I don't like wasting money. There are some beauty items I will splurge on like foundation, for example.  If I find the right one for my skin type, I "need" to buy it no matter what the cost!  Mascara is so subjective, what works for me, may not work for you, so I spend what I like on mascara if it works.  My philosophy is this:If you spend time and money trying to find a dupe for "that perfect, but expensive, product", you will end up spending more money and time trying to find a…

Would I have to run to the brathroom every hour? I am also sceptical when it come to this concept since it is always so vague - which toxins are flushes away exactly? Why? Doesn't the body clean itself? When I was very kindly given the opportunity to try Lady Soma Detox, I figured out it was my chance since I am mostly homebound because of topical steroid withdrawal anyway.The Lady Soma Detox is an advanced…

It blends imperfections in an instant and it has a beautiful matte finish so you can skip a face powder, which for me is a major plus. I find “dewy” foundations feel and look greasy! And on top of it they are more hassle to use or travel. The consistency of this foundation is like water, very runny but nonetheless it is a medium to full coverage foundation.

    Year-round sun protection is the wise choice for a lifetime of beautiful skin. It’s a good idea to have in your wardrobe a hat or two to shield your face, because honestly, reapplying sunscreen throughout the day is not the most convenient process; in fact, it’s beyond high maintenance, and if you wear foundation, it’s going to ruin your canvas. I have a deep appreciation for beautiful things, and couture hats are no exception. There will always be an occasion for a fashionable hat, but the most important thing that you want to invest in first is a very practical, collapsable sun hat…

The video, which looks like a surreal Salvador Dali painting coming to life, boasts a signature Louboutin stiletto that transforms into the top of a nail lacquer bottle. There are images of white castles made of weapon-like stilettos spikes, trippy nail polish bottles floating from the sky and, of course, abrupt visions of fingernails that are painted in the classic red Louboutin polish.  The 51-second video is wonderful,…

When I started my nursing career, gloves were not a requirement for all procedures. Thus, at an early age, my hands developed a habit of looking dried out and ashy from constant washing with harsh, antiseptic soaps. Sometimes my knuckles even cracked from the extreme dryness.

Then, there are other times when the gods have forsaken me. When this happens, it’s easy to panic and feel a surge of disappointment with all those fancy potions and lotions. But the rational thing to do is to try to figure out what might have changed. In my case, it’s usually hormonal, which means I need to switch my regimen around…

As an Esthetician, I like natural skin care products. I also know the effects of the sun on our skin and how powerful zinc oxide is in counteracting harmful sunrays. And as someone with a marketing…

  • This 6,000 Year-Old Eastern Practice Can Help Give You Perfect Skin

    20 Aug 2014 | 8:00 am
    By all appearances, beauty entrepreneur Mally Steves Chakola was born with perfect skin. But she’s the first to admit that her smooth, glowing complexion takes work. “Because my pitta dosha can be overly dominant, I have to constantly combat inflammation,” she explains. “I use antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and botanical ingredients in my diet and beauty routine to help create my personal balance.” Dosha? Pitta? Personal balance? With these terms, Chakola is referencing the 6,000-year-old healing practice known as Ayurveda, which she first got acquainted with as a child.
  • Vintage Inspiration: Apollonia Kotero in “Purple Rain”

    19 Aug 2014 | 8:00 am
    Thirty years ago, a very tiny 26-year-old genius convinced Hollywood execs that a highly sexual, sort of violent love story set against the backdrop of Minneapolis’s music scene—starring a pansexual, multi-racial band that played unclassifiable music (pop/country/R&amp;B/rock?)—would be a winner. And, oh, it was. Purple Rain changed the face of music, and musical movies, forever.  It also introduced the world to Apollonia Kotero, a former lingerie model with a kissy-kissy berry-glossed mouth and 1984’s most perfect teased-and-sprayed waves outside of David Lee Roth (whom she was…
  • 5 Easy Ways to Extend the Life of Your Pedicure

    18 Aug 2014 | 8:00 am
    Few things are as sophisticated as a fresh pedicure. It makes you feel pulled together from head-to-toe, literally. But since it only takes one chipped paint job to ruin that feeling, especially during summer sandal season, we’ve compiled our best tips for making your pedi go the extra mile. At the salon, BYOP(olish) We know. Part of the allure of getting your toes done at a salon is the gargantuan rainbow of polish options. But you won’t know how long the bottles have been sitting there—as you know from your own collection, as a polish ages, it chips more easily and doesn’t apply as…

  • Get Glowing Instantly! 3 Must-Try Facial Masks

    16 Aug 2014 | 8:00 am
    If I could go to the spa every day I would. But if I did, I’d be broke in less than a week. Luckily, there are plenty of treatment products designed to give you the benefits of, say, a facial, at home. When I recently decided to give three of the most popular face masks on Beautylish a try, I was pleasantly surprised: I’d heard the hype, but had my doubts going in. My skin is what you’d call combination, and has a tendency to look seriously dull following an off night (when I don’t eat well, fall asleep with my makeup on, or don’t get enough sleep). I’m happy to report all three…

    by Jackie Silver, Aging Backwards   If you’re a little reluctant to get rid of half-full bottles of mascara or an almost-full eye shadow container, you’re not alone. After all, women in the United States spend more than $8 billion annually on cosmetics. That’s a lot of money to be throwing away. But experts say outdated makeup could make you sick. What’s crawling in your makeup? “Most women do have a drawer full of cosmetics that have been partially used,” says Angela Bowers, M.D. Dr. Bowers is a dermatologist on the medical staff at Baylor Regional Medical Center at…

  • Prove It! Review of the Philips PureRadiance Facial Cleansing System

    5 Aug 2014 | 2:18 pm
     With the increasing popularity of high-tech cleansing tools in the beauty world, I probably shouldn't admit this, but I'd never actually tried one until two months ago. For one, most of these tools are quite an investment at around $150 a piece. With dry and at times sensitive skin, the idea of scrubbing away layers of my face is scary. Yes, exfoliation is an important step of a skin care routine, but if you've dealt with products that have made your skin freak out before, you may also understand the struggle against exfoliator-induced panic attacks. All of…
  • There's Finally a Cure for Phobia of Shiny Eye Shadows

    28 Jul 2014 | 9:55 am
    Generally I prefer my face to glow, not sparkle. Sparkles are just not my thing. Adding even a single sequin to something is the quickest way to ruin it. Since I am nearly certain this aversion is a response to a deep-seated childhood trauma like wanting a pink sparkly unicorn shirt and being denied it, the fact that I have finally found an eyeshadow that can be described as "sparkly" and yet I still want to wear it feels like a tremendous victory.The amount I hate sparkles is equivalent to the amount of ambivalence I feel for mousse eye shadow. The texture can be odd, I suck at applying…
  • Cleansing Rituals: The 7 Step Guide to Summer Skincare

    When the sun goes down, so does my skincare routineMost routines make my shoulders tense, my teeth clench, and bring tears of boredom to my eyes. Give me an unplanned evening that starts with dinner and turns into a 3am dance party any day. Or really, any day where I can sleep in past 10am. However, one of the few areas in life that I absolutely, positively need to follow a carefully regimented plan is skincare. Specifically my evening facial routine. Even though products rotate in and out as the seasons change or my skin decides to go all weird on me, there is always a tight plan in…
  • The Space In-Between: In Life, In Hairstyles

    Most of life happens in what is best described as the "in-between zone". Sure, those big moments when we move to a new city, change jobs, or start (perhaps end) a relationship seem to be the more crucial points. In the film of our life, those pivotal moments would make it into the hyped-up movie trailer. Not featured would be the routines that make up the average day, and the waiting, always waiting, for the next big thing to happen. But it is those in-between moments that seem to encompass the majority of our story.Washington D.C, stumbled across this charming tree in…

Be it National Candied Orange Peel Day or Lumpy Rug Day, I can appreciate the idea that people are passionate about a wide range of things and every dog should have his day, as the saying goes. That being said, Earth Day is not one of those random holidays. Earth Day is a day where we can all join together in our feelings of guilt for not doing more to be environmentally aware. Or on the flip side, if you are quite environmentally…

This last couple of months, have been extremely busy with makeup work and more than often, I literally have less than ten minutes to do my face and be out the door to catch a train to New York City or drive.

I say lashes with caps because no makeup job was ever complete without a full set of lashes, it was a requirement so I always kept a good array in my kit. My clients in Singapore loved their lashes more than anything. And although there were plenty of choices out in the market, I liked Star Lash on my bridal and commercial work, I had ample choice on look, sizes and most of all, quality. Star Lash also does eyelash glue and a makeup corrector pen called…

    I'm a huge fan of the Yes To brand and I almost died when they came out with a coconut line, since me+coconut=bestbuds.Back in July, I found a couple of the products at Walgreens, but just recently found the entire coconut line at Target. So I had to restrain myself from blowing my entire August budget on my own personal coconut empire and just stick to one or two things.So I picked up the Cooling Lip Oil ($4.99), since it's a pretty unique product for the drugstore ( I saw at Sephora that Hourglass makes a lip oil, but it's $45...sheesh!). I'm pretty sure no other drugstore brand makes a lip…

    Late one night, during a bout of insomnia, I was watching TV and and saw an infomercial for Secret Extensions, with Daisy Fuentes as their celebrity spokesperson.Normally, I don't pay attention to these things, but since having a baby, my hair has thinned out a lot, even though it's long. I contemplated chopping it into a bob, but I've had shorter hair for years and have finally grown it out. So I've been looking into extensions as a way to add some volume, not necessarily length (although I wouldn't mind a little more). I decided against having them sewn or glued in at the salon...too costly…

It is this week’s BEST LOOK OF THE LINK UP!   Jill, recreated a few looks for the August Pin-Spired challenge going around and used Reese Witherspoon as her inspiration.  #NAILEDIT She wins at Monday and for such gorgeous looks all in a row.

    You all know how much I love mixing fashion with cars. They are two of my big loves that go together like peanut butter and chocolate or birthdays and cake. That’s why I’m so excited to be teaming up with Ford for their collaboration with OPI for nail colors inspired by the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang.   How fun and just absolutely gorgeous are these colors? I can’t even decide which one I like best though the dark edge of ‘Queen of the Road’ makes me crush hard. And guess what? Let’s take the Pedi to the Metal! If you are local to me,…

  • Late Night Cooking: Skirt Steak Salad

    admin

    Earlier this late afternoon/early evening, my time was consumed with my face in front of the computer researching DIY beauty products. I have found a few projects to try out, which will become the subject of future blog posts. Anyways, I totally forgot about dinner. My boyfriend doesn’t get off of work until 9 PM. He didn’t have any dinner yet so we decided to cook a late dinner instead of going through a fast food place. I didn’t want to eat anything too heavy late at night either. Our decision for dinner: skirt steak salad with chimichurri sauce on the side. It’s a…
  • Healthy Eating: Stuffed Bell Peppers

    18 Aug 2014 | 7:21 pm
    So my boyfriend asked me this morning, what’s for lunch? To us, that’s an important question. Well at least for me, since I LOVE FOOD! He knows when I cook, I love making healthy dishes. And thank God, he likes what I make. I always need a vegetable/fruit and a protein incorporated into my cooking. So why not make stuffed bell peppers? The bf agreed. Overall this dish takes roughly about 45 minutes. Ingredients as follows with estimates on the measuring: 3/4 lb Extra Lean Ground Beef 4 Yellow Bell Peppers, seeded 1/2 small Onion, chopped 3 Garlic Cloves, minced 1 Ear of Sweet…

This will be a yearly tradition to come and visit The Swamp. The flight to Florida from Los Angeles wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.

  • A Busy Weekend in the City of Fresno

    Fresno is definitely not a tourist spot. The only reason why I would think about visiting that city during my off time is because of bowling tournaments held at AMF Sierra Lanes (I don’t bowl tournaments though). The plus side of this trip is that a friend from San Diego came with us. When he got to my place Friday night, he did bring a surprise: 10 mini bottles of Yukon Jacapple Whiskey for the trip. It’s so hard to find a bottle of this whiskey that I have to special order it. Doesn’t that suck? We ended up leaving for Fresno early Saturday morning, about 5:30AM. I…

    Creme De La Mer 'The Treatment Fluid Foundation' £70/$85* Made with Creme de la Mer's remarkable skincare benefits (you can read about their blue algae process in all La Mer products here), their lightweight fluid foundation is something special. I've used La Mer moisturisers and can confirm they are amazing, I can't speak for long term use but I can vouch for it's instant effects which are incredible so I'm sure long term use is something rather brilliant.

So many times I wished there was a foundation for hair for the bits of grey that come through just one sodding week after having my roots done, I can't be the only one who's brushed eyeshadow over grey hairs?

I hate the smell, that I can't wear white, the way it wears off on my towels and sheets, the whole shebang. But, typically, I love looking tanned mostly because a tan makes my skin look even toned and covers my blue, pink and white hued legs.

    Shannon Smyth

    When we’re young, we take our flawless skin for granted, never considering that what we do early on will affect us when we’re older. We try to rush things, like wearing makeup (and always forgetting to take it off), skip things like sunscreen and make poor choices like smoking. (I know as I write this I’m not just speaking for myself.) As much as we backpeddle once we finally realize our skin sins, it’s too late and we need wrinkle reducing skin care to become part of our daily routine.

    There’s something that a black eyeliner conveys that brown or even brightly colored or metallic eyeliners can’t duplicate. Black says bold, daring, classic, sexy. While there are times that I opt for brown or grey, a good black eyeliner is always my first choice. Some of my favorites include CoverGirl liquiline blast (pencil), LORAC 3-in-1 Waterproof Eye Pencil (retractable), AVON Kohl Eye Liner (pencil) and Jesse’s Girl Waterproof Eyeliner (liquid). For the most part, I wear them interchangeably. However, I do tend to wear more waterproof makeup when it’s hot out.

    The Effortless Beauty

    16 Aug 2014 | 10:59 am
    Sometimes, the words don’t come. I will and I will and I will myself to sit down and write the words — any words — but even the sitting down is heavy and hard. That ‘sometimes’ can last for months; it has for almost eight months now. I’ve felt almost afraid of this space, like it’s a fighting ring where I need to show my strongest, most indefatigable side; where I need to reflect some sort of beauty or magic, if at least to myself. But every now and then, there are (still) those days where it feels enough for me to just breathe through the day. Those days,…

Because there was a time when we would follow only what our hearts and our bodies really wanted to do from deep inside each cell: To speak the truest truth we knew in our littlest minds. To laugh whenever the hell we wanted, even if it wasn’t appropriate. To move and bop and let our bodies do…

    This post is about dimsum. And more than the little bamboo cases of dumplings and buns, it is about what “dim sum” really means – dim (touch) sum (heart): to touch the heart. I sat around a round table this afternoon with three friends who have known my pains and my joys, and everything that has made my heart sing and bleed. One of them had made it possible for me to leave a painful place; another gave me new ways of looking, feeling and loving; and the last who has only ever believed in the spark within me, no matter how dark things became. And so, after a long, slow,…

The door is only about four steps away from my bed but I still manage to trip myself as I walk. It’s so makeshift I almost feel like a student again. I don’t even have a proper bedside…

  • FOTD – Family Portrait Session

    Soo Jin
    11 Aug 2014 | 11:00 am
    I just wanted to share my face of the day from yesterday’s family portrait session. It’s so incredibly rare to put on a full face of makeup these days being a stay-at-home mama but it was pretty fun getting all done up.  I’m really proud of myself for taking care of hair and makeup on my own. I was SO tempted to just going to the salon/makeup counter so that I wouldn’t have to stress about things not turning out the way that I wanted.  In the end, I was able to get ready during Evelyn’s naps/while Hubs took care of her so it all worked out.Before – no…

    It’s long overdue but here it is- Evelyn’s birth story!So here’s where I left you.  My last post pre-baby was my 39th week update (besides my pre-scheduled LeSportsac Baby Bag post).  At that point I think my mentality was “this baby is never coming out”.  I remember being so anxious and excited for her to arrive but having thought that she could be coming any minute for the past few weeks was really tiring me out. Even though other parents told me again and again to enjoy this time before baby arrives I couldn’t help but just want her here already!

    I’m back!I don’t even know where to begin. It’s almost been 1 year since my last post on ABD and so much has changed.  As you can guess I had my sweet baby girl! Evelyn was born early morning on September 9th, 2013.  Since then life has been a beautiful chaos.  In the beginning I was struggling to adjust to motherhood so I had no time, energy or will to continue blogging.  But like people told me over and over again while I was in the thick of things, it got easier!  Most days I’m still pretty pooped by the time Evelyn is in bed but I have to say I really do…

    Hey Everyone!I mentioned back in April that I was on the hunt for a stylish diaper bag that doesn’t scream “I carry diapers!”.  Some other important factors were that it’s light-weight, functional (pockets and can carry crossbody) and affordable.  Well I searched high and low and all the baby bags that I liked never met the affordable criteria.Even though I wasn’t in love, I was pretty set on purchasing the MARC by MARC JACOBS Pretty Nylon Eliz-a-baby Diaper Bag in Black or Grey. It did take a while to justify the $298 price tag to Hubs.PROSlight weight…

    You know what’s super exciting to a green beauty loving girl like myself? A new product that WORKS! From Pacifica comes a new 7-Free  nail color that blows my mind for the smooth consistency and  shiny bright color. I’ve heard of 5-free and 3-free but 7- free? Yup! Here’s what its formulated without:   parabens, phthalates (dibutyl phthalate), toluene, xylene, camphor, formaldehyde, resin, and animals.  I expected a watery, less colorful color but this one is truly amazing especially when you consider that it’s a healthier polish. To give you an idea of how…

(Almost) Bare Faced Beauty: I start with a small dab of Josh Rosebrook’s Hydrating Serum. For the longest time- like, my whole life so far, I’ve been tackling shine on the t-zone. I suddenly realized that I didn’t want to look powdered and matte because that look made me appear older! No, I want dewy skin like a youthful goddess. And I get that look with a good serum like this…

    If you’ve never had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome you can be forgiven for thinking it’s a relatively trivial condition. The name implies that sufferers will undoubtedly feel tired and bit-run down, but surely that’s nothing new, we all feel tired from time to time! Concerned, welcomed but ultimately useless advice can often take the form of “get some sleep, have a red bull for breakfast and pull your socks up. You’ll feel fine after a hot bath and an early night”. Too tired to argue or explain that even physically pulling your socks up is an effort of titanic proportions, sufferers…

When it comes to keeping it safe, most of my cases are colourful, or personalised so I thought it was about time I went for something simpler, something that could be used if / when I needed to look more professional. So I opted for a plain black slim lined case, which came with front cover.

    Here I am thinking about eating cake, not about how I might be looking shiny. (Photos: Kristy May) I’m not somebody who ever cared about her wedding day. I didn’t dream about my dress since I was a kid, plan every detail in my head as a teenager, or dedicate Pinterest boards to it as a young adult adult. In fact, I wasn’t positive I ever wanted to get married at all. That changed when I got serious with Adam, my now-husband, but after we decided to tie the knot, I still wasn’t terribly interested in the actual wedding, and decided to forgo some trappings that…

    Wendy Kwei Makeup Artist Sydney
    20 Jul 2014 | 8:51 pm
    If you get to mid-morning or the start of your lunch break and notice that your makeup has mysteriously disappeared, there’s a good chance your skin has drunk it up! In these cooler months, external influences like artificial heating and cool winds will make your skin dry and thirsty, and your disappearing makeup is often the first indicator of it. Before rushing to change your makeup routine, I always recommend looking at your skincare and diet first. Drinking sufficient amounts of water is the key to hydrating your skin, and of course reducing its thirst-factor! Secondly have a look at…
  • Makeup Gift Idea: colour switch

    Wendy Kwei Makeup Artist Sydney
    13 Jul 2014 | 5:45 pm
    “Colour switch” by Vera Mona is a great little makeup gift or addition to your own makeup bag. It was shown to me by a client (thanks Sandra!) recently and I couldn’t believe it hadn’t been created earlier. It’s perfect for someone who enjoys using different makeup colours but only owns a few makeup brushes. For example using the same brush for blush and bronzer, or blending a smoky eye with 2-3 colours using just one brush. With “colour switch” you simply swipe the brush over the stippled sponge and it quickly removes all colours from it and you’re ready for the next product.

So the start of the new financial year is a “second chance” to remind yourself to stop and reassess things. In terms of makeup resolutions, I advise my clients to check and refresh their makeup routine at least once a year, to avoid any makeup ruts! Here are some suggestions to get you started: To check: Foundation colour: when was the last time you had it matched? Does your skin colour change markedly with the seasons?

  • What are Perfect Breasts?

    Ryan Bloch
    18 Aug 2014 | 9:50 am
      Breasts, breasts, breasts. Whether small or large, pert or pendulous, they all have their admirers. But there is one type of breast that most approaches perfection. The model mammary apparently has a nipple that points slightly skywards and an upper half just a bit smaller than the bottom half. If one is talking about a mature woman, then there is no perfect breast size. All breast sizes when the time comes, will serve the function to which they were given. If you a girl asking the question then be proud of what you have, if your breasts are small and compact then so be it, they can be…
  • The Renaissance of the Male Calf?

    Ryan Bloch
    5 Aug 2014 | 9:55 am
        Did you know that the male calf used to be a signature erogenous zone? This is why European men in the latter part of the 18th Century wore stockings. Much like the modern equivalent of the male bicep, an emphasis on a strong shapely calf was meant to attract female onlookers. As with a strong bicep, a strong calf conveyed virility. If we look at paintings and portraits from the latter half of the 1700s we can see that the fashionable item were white stockings, and men can be seen posing in such a way as to accentuate the finer features of their calf. The modern equivalent of…
  • What Are Perfect Lips?

    Ryan Bloch
    4 Aug 2014 | 6:52 am
    The balanced lip size: The ratio of the height of the upper lip to that of the lower one is ideally 1.4:1.6. 1. Outside Corners of Lips Over time, the fat at the corner of the lips disappears and the depressor angularis oris, the muscle that runs from the corner of the lips to the jawbone, tightens, resulting in the downward look. This process also results in the formation of Marionette lines. Dermal fillers can replace the volume while Botox®, in the depressor angularis oris will relax that muscle.  2. Vermilion Border This is the lip border that defines the shape of your lips. The…

Is the waif look, glorified on the cover of every fashion magazine, so dominant in the 90s and the 2000s, finally out?

  • Cosmetic Surgery for Ears? Hear Us Out!

    Ryan Bloch
    26 Jun 2014 | 10:22 am
    From complaining that they are to large, asymmetrical, or protrude to far from their heads, many individuals are unhappy with their ears. Many take various measures to hide them, from growing out the hair to cover the ears, to slapping on hats. Fortunately, otoplasty, or ear plastic surgery, is readily available to cosmetically alter the ears. Because the ears are very prominent, many cosmetic ear surgery patients experience a significant increase in confidence and self-esteem once their ears have been given a more desirable appearance. The most popular otoplasty procedure is ear pinning and…

If it works out well, then maybe we can make this a regular thing, and if it sucks we pretend this never happened, deal?  Ok cool. The reason I’m splitting it up is that color theory is kinda complex, and I want to make sure I don’t miss anything that matters.  I also don’t want to break your brain and make you think about it too much at once. In art school there were entire courses we took on learning and applying color theory.  Obviously I can’t go that far into it, but I think we…

    In order to keep my skin clean and healthy looking, I cleanse my face with a mild cleanser then exfoliate my skin using Simple Beauty Minerals Jojoba scrub.

I have a fairly old rice cooker, it doesn't have all the fancy functions that others have, so we just turned it on and hoped for the best.While fairly vague, the instructions seem to work out. Mix the batter (we used pre-mix but DIY would be fine), pour it into the…
  • Mario Badescu Whitening Mask review

    16 Jun 2014 | 12:02 am
    To kick things off again i'm going straight in with a review. I was looking for some kind of whitening product and this popped up in the recommendations on the Mecca website. I did a couple of quick searches of the product and just about all of it was positive, which is always a good sign. I knew it was a mask but i was expecting something much smoother. To my surprise (and lack of research..), this is actually a clay mask. So yes, it's supposed to look a bit questionable in the pot haha.The website does say it's good for all skin types, and the products are botanically based. What…

    So, we've just come into Winter in Australia, and it kind of hit by surprise. It's been spring weather for a few weeks then suddenly just got cold and miserable. Now i can finally do this tag hahaQUESTION 1Favourite candle scent?Usually i would go for something like pear and ginger, but the sickly scents don't really fit with the season. Maybe classic vanilla, you can't go wrong with that one. QUESTION 2Coffee, tea or hot chocolate?I like all 3, but i have to go with hot chocolate. Or, actually, hot milo. It's just that much more comforting on a cold day. QUESTION 3Whats the best…

If you like really fluffy, but still tasty pancakes, then this is perfect. I never did like almond milk, the supermarket brands did nothing for me, and it ruined all my smoothies.. But, i've just recently come across Almond Milk Co. They're a brand new Melbourne based company who hand make raw , gluten, lactose & dairy free, almond milk, (i saw their stand at MICE2014) and they've won me…

  • Help reduce the appearance of acne scars with Chilean rosehip oil

    Rio Rosa Mosqueta
    28 May 2014 | 1:37 am
    Acne is a skin condition that affects most people at some point in their lives and it’s not unusual for affected skin to be left with scars. Chilean rosehip oil can be used to reduce the appearance of scars, and improve the condition of the skin. How does it work? A healthy skin cell has a healthy membrane, which keeps water and nutrients in, and allows waste products to pass out. It is a fatty acid’s job to keep the cell healthy and its membrane functioning. The special composition of omega oils in Rosa Mosqueta oil makes it a valuable source of fatty acids (EFAs). Rosa Mosqueta oil also…

    When it comes to the world of nail designs there is very little that caters for short nails. Everywhere you look you see long, pointy or stiletto nails, and none of the designs or nail art are suitable for shorter manicures. Which is a little unfair, don’t you think? Shorter nails may not instantly catch the eye in the same way something more in-your-face or ostentatious would but they can be much more suitable for certain situations. Short nails are subtle, classy and elegant. But they’re also functional. You’re not going to want some long talons with jewels all over them…

The A-Line DressA-Line dresses are one of my favorite styles. The name derives from the 'A' shape that the skirt or dress forms. It's tight near the waist and it flares out towards the bottom.

Her handmade jewelry, paintings and sculptors are also beautiful/haunting. I really love this necklace in particular. If you like Tolkien, elves, witch/pagan, viking motifs, macabre and haunting things, you’ll love Amalia’s art as much as I do!

    “When you laugh, the world laughs with you. When you weep, you weep alone.” That old saying appears to be true, at least most of the time. We’re told to be upbeat, and to smile and put on a brave face. To hide the things that make us seem vulnerable, or like we made a mistake. “Fake it til you make it.” is another saying I don’t like. Although I would rather weep alone and not have to explain what’s wrong to anybody, things start to become distorted when you isolate yourself in your hard times. When you’re not honest about your problems, it…

    A skin cream is the foundation of your home skin care regimen. Unlike a cleanser or a scrub, a cream needs to have long lasting affects. But can it? Is yours a miracle worker or are you just applying a cream for no real benefit? What’s in one skin cream that makes it work, while others are just moisturizer placebos? When you are at the cosmetic counter, the spa, or the drugstore, what should you look for? For starters, the modern ingredients available today are way too advanced to settle for just any old moisturizer. The moisturizers of 10 or 20 years ago don’t begin to match up…
