    cialis canadian epharmacy StyleBell Customer Question: What is the best round brush to use to curl my ends under while styling? Hair Type: very straight fine hair about 2 inches below shoulders in length Answer:Having fine hair is not always a bad thing, especially when it comes to shopping for brushes! With fine hair, the rule of thumb is: the smaller the brush is, the more curl you will get. I recommend staying with a brush that is between 1 1/2 and 2 1/2″ to get a nice, defined curl while turning the hair under. That being said, picking the type of brush material you want is…

    Fact or Fiction: Weekly use of a clarifying shampoo will dry out your hair. Fiction! Unhealthy build up of products and even water on our hair can cause it to feel unhealthy, brittle, and even break. Using a clarifying shampoo once a week (depending on the hair type) can help strip off the bad allowing more absorption for moisture and creating more potential for your hair products to do their job! Although, using a clarifying shampoo too frequently, or incorrectly can certainly can an imbalance by over-stripping the essential oils needed to maintain moisture. That’s why we’ve…

    Cake on the face may be a party-time shenanigan, but when it comes to makeup, cake on the face isn't quite as amusing. Celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff (who has worked with actresses like Julianne Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Naomi Watts) says that the key to preventing cakey makeup from happening underneath the eyes is to think sheer layers. "It's like layering a cake," Dubroff explains. "You wouldn't just slap the frosting on." To keep under-eyes bright and smooth, Dubroff recommends using a concealing pen, sweeping it on in a light, delicate layer. Follow by gently tapping it in with…

(She'll never go without lip balm again!) I sat down with Alex, who discussed her emergency kit and what it takes to get gorgeous legs, and she even gave a few tips on her workout regimen.
  • Put Your Face on in 3 Minutes With These Mesmerizing Beauty GIFs

    19 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    As a beauty editor, I usually take the longer route when it comes to doing my makeup. After all, when you have the option of trying every product under the sun, why wouldn't you take your sweet, sweet time? But Estée Lauder may have made me a corner-cutting convert. The brand created a series of GIFs just for its lovely beauty counter ladies to show women the easiest ways to make up their faces. Not only are these GIFs gorgeous (hello, Joan Smalls), but they also featured tricks that I hadn't actually seen before. Being both nosy and beauty-obsessed, I had to know more. I asked Blair…

  • Throwback Thursday: Love's Baby Soft Perfume

    Jamie
    18 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    As a girl growing up in the late 80's and early 90's, I'm not sure there was a perfume more prevalent in my life than Love's Baby Soft. (Well, except for my beloved Exclamation!, but that's another story.) This perfume was the be-all and end-all of my pre-teen years.Just look at that girl in the advertisement above. Who WOULDN'T want to look like her? Gorgeous full curly hair, perfectly glossed pouty lips, not a wrinkle in sight, even a cute teddy bear and what's obviously an adorable eyelet nightgown. I just wanted to BE that girl. (Admittedly, the ad above is from before I was born,…

Yesterday I brought you swatches of the Naturel Deux (2) Collection, and today I have the (unbelievable) (gorgeous) (ZOMG-worthy) Ignite Collection for Fall 2014.

Coverage was completely opaque in two coats with no streaking, smudging or dragging.Autumn is described as a varnished copper liquid metal. Pretty…
  • Zoya Naturel Deux (2) Collection Nail Polish Swatches

    Jamie
    16 Sep 2014 | 5:58 am
    In case you weren't aware, Zoya pretty much knocks it out of the park with every single nail polish collection they create. And, true to form, the Naturel Deux (2) Collection (which launched a couple months ago) is no different. The six polishes in this collection take the idea of neutral and spin it on its head, making it become something completely new and different (and, of course, completely gorgeous). Read on to see all my swatches and thoughts on this collection.The Zoya Naturel Deux (2) Collection is, as might be obvious from the name, the second in the Naturel realm. You may remember…

And now, as if that weren't enough, I've gone and discovered Tom Ford Black Cherry Nail Lacquer.Seriously, just look at it.

    19 Sep 2014 | 3:10 am
    As I am getting, ahem, older (we all are) the one thing that I worry about is my lack of radiance. My skin just looks dull. And don't even talk to me about age spots. I stay out of the sun, I wear SPF each and every day. I treat my age spots and even laser them, yet they keep cropping up which just makes my skin look more drab and dull. So when I hear that one of my favorite beauty tools, the Clarisonic, has formulated an entire system dedicated to brightening, I knew I needed to try it. Meet the Clarisonic Sonic Radiance Brightening Solution Kit.

    Now that it feels that the summer weather is starting to slowly fade away with the cool nights coming in, it is time to start changing up our skin care just a bit. First thing is first; we need to get rid of the dry rough skin that has built up over the summer. The best way to do that is with a scrub. I have found a great scrub with this newer one from Murad called Skin Smoothing Polish. It not only scrubs away deep into the skin, it does so gently where it doesn't tear the kin. It gets rid of embedded impurities that have built up over the summer and relieves clogged pores. It leaves skin…

  • What Happens When You Put Blush Alllll Over Your Cheeks Instead of on Just the Apples (Not a Disaster—Promise!)

    18 Sep 2014 | 2:02 pm
    Most of the time, makeup artists advise to put blush on the apples of your cheeks only, but that's not the only way you can apply blush. No, you can actually put it all over your cheeks like Holland Roden did last night at the Live Love Spa event Splash. It's just a little trickier to pull off. The effect is much flirtier and youthful when more of your face appears to be flushed, but there's a trick to making this work: You have to go for a softer bronze or beige-based blush and skip the bright pinks or the shimmery bold corals. You want to look a touch warmer as opposed to adding actual…

    Aerin Lauder on what her grandmother would be horrified to see in today’s workplace…“Probably casual Fridays for men. She would not like Lacoste [shirts] at the office. I come from an environment where the men actually say, ‘Is it OK if I take off my jacket?’ in a meeting. Everyone wears suits; it is a very dressed-up world. Even if I wear jeans, I still wear a blazer and jewelry. I think there is something nice about coming to work and dressing nicely.”Indeed.Photo and quote from Glamour Magazine.COPYRIGHT ©2006-2014 GAIA FISHLER WWW.THENONBLONDE.COM, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

    This was a rare impulse buy. Normally I plan my makeup purchases carefully, keeping lists and spreadsheets that help me decide if a certain item has its place in my collection or at least is important enough for the blog. I didn't give much thought to the recently-launched Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Eye Shadow Palette because the first Naked Basics was not right for my coloring and failed to impress me.

An abstract masculine design with notes of brushed steel, glass, concrete and motor oil". I had no idea. One might think that once I read that on DSH's website I passed what was left of the sample to the Blond so he can partake in the fun. I didn't *. I love my husband, but…

  • Nails of the Week: NARS Zakynthos

    Crystal
    17 Sep 2014 | 5:30 am
    One of my favorite styling tricks is to wear my favorite nude heels with a bare-leg outfit. Even at 5’2” the illusion of a continuous line lengthens my legs like nothing else. Same goes for nails. A nude polish can be your most flattering and classic bet. More often than not, it looks luxurious and expensive, given that you are wearing the right shade of nude for your skintone. My most recent nude polish favorite is the NARS Nail Polish in Zakynthos ($20 US), a creamy pink grey-tinged beige that makes my hands look great and my nails perfectly polished and neat. When was the last time you…
  • Lip Lust: Pur Minerals Gloss Stick

    Crystal
    16 Sep 2014 | 5:30 am
    For me, classic Fall makeup is either dark berry lips (think Bordeaux or burgundy) or a just bitten stained look. The latter is more low maintenance, which I’ve preferred with my recently hectic schedule this semester. The Pur Minerals Gloss Stick ($16 US) is one of my picks for the season. Check out two of the colors: Spiked Punch and Daredevil below. The best part of this particular rendition of a gloss, balm, lipstick hybrid is its texture. Slightly tacky, it doesn’t wear off as quickly as some others, but has a balmy feel that won’t dry out lips like a traditional stain. The sticks…

That said, I can’t explain away split ends, which I’m starting to see. I’m stubborn about having long, healthy hair though so that means no coloring and keeping trims to a minimum. Quality products are absolutely a must both for preventing and treating naturally occurring damage. In short, salon results without actually stepping foot into a salon.

It’s been an awful 11 months as we’ve dealt with treating inflammatory bowel disease, that left her at a frail six pounds, to discovering her lung tumor seven months ago. It’s been a year where I have spent the majority of my days, at home, worried about her, on high alert for a wheezing fit, making sure she was eating and giving in to every time she wanted to lay on my lap, whether I had work to do or not.

    The country houses of England remain some of the most well preserved seats of established families to survive anywhere in the world.

The National Trust owns several country houses in every corner of England, but there are several that are still owned by the families, but opened to the public.   If a tour of the great country houses of England are on your travel itinerary, these are some of the…

A couple of tries that didn’t quite hit the mark and I found one that the whole family loved.  A slightly crunchy crust on top and plenty of moist flavor inside.  It is pretty enough to serve to weekend company and, trust me, meatloaf is hard to make pretty.  The key is to use your hands to mix all the flavors up well, and to use these as fresh ingredients- parmesan cheese, garlic, and bacon (no bacon…

    Wearing clothes that look awesome on your body gives you a terrific sense of confidence.

Today, we’ll focus on the Triangle Body Type and what to wear for fall! Your Shape: Your lower body is wider than your upper body. Your Goal: Draw attention to your upper body and minimize your lower body. Add volume to your upper half with chunky knit sweaters.  A chunky infinity scarf is a great option as well!

    You know I preach to get dressed every day to look and feel your best.  Too many moms roll out of bed and hit the ground running to get the kids off to school with no regard for themselves. The problem with not taking 15-20 minutes minimum to get yourself ready is that you are neglecting yourself.  When something is neglected, it quite literally is disrespected.  I know you’d hate for your kids to disrespect you so why do you do it to yourself? Here is a rule of thumb to remember: do 1 of 3 things if you are extremely limited on time… do your hair, makeup or dress nice. If you…

    It’s great to have a go-to “uniform” that allows you to quickly put together your outfits with little thought. Having a formula for your outfit is what provides effortless chic style. Kate Middleton has a “uniform” of lady-like dresses and classic pumps. Kate Moss has a street style uniform of denim, black top and black boots of various heights. Angelina Jolie can be found wearing the simplest of lines in very classic shapes. For the mornings when you don’t have time to think about what to put on, it’s good to have a few looks you can rely on. One…

After scoping out the dozens (literally) of bags and small leather goods that models toted down the brand’s runway, I’ve become convinced that Karl Lagerfeld loves me and wants me to be happy.

    Here’s Kim Kardashian, leaving the dermatologist’s office after what was obviously just a quick consultation that did NOT involve Botox injections in low key, all-black gym clothes. Kim is carrying her trusty Hermès So Black Birkin. We’ve seen Kim carry this gorgeous bag numerous times, and I would guess that it’s probably her all-time fave. (It’s the exorbitantly priced black handbag that goes with everything! But Amanda contends that Hermès bags are totally worth the money.)

    The Too Faced What Pretty Girls Are Made Of Sugar & Spice set for holiday 2014 sure is a beauty. This holiday set, which is exclusive to Ulta, comes in a glittery gold clutch. Inside the clutch you will find a glittery gold palette featuring twelve eye shadows and a mirror, as well as deluxe-size Better Than Sex Mascara. You might be wondering about all this glitter and if it’s messy. The answer is no. The gold glitter both on the clutch and palette is super fine and doesn’t come off at all. I even scratched them to see if any would come off and it didn’t. It’s not…

    Ho sempre curato molto la zona degli occhi, poiché penso che anche il trucco più elaborato non possa sostituire la bellezza di uno sguardo fresco e riposato.Se la pelle intorno agli occhi è ben idratata ed elastica, ne guadagna l'espressione dell'intero viso.Per questo ho sempre cercato di usare detergenti e struccanti delicati, nonché prodotti che idratassero la zona con gentilezza, evitando di appesantire la sua struttura estremamente fragile e sottile.In questo modo, oltre a tenere a bada il rischio di occhiaie e borse sempre in agguato, penso di essere riuscita anche a…

Dopo i trucchi colorati dell'estate è tempo di tornare a qualcosa di sobrio da poter indossare anche sui banchi di scuola.Il make up adatto alle studentesse deve essere quasi impercettibile, dobbiamo solo esaltare alcuni tratti senza esagerare e senza perdere troppo tempo al mattino.

  • Should I pat my face with water before applying oil?

    Randy Schueller

    Ida inquires: In another beauty-related forum, I read the following claim (from a member, not an “expert”) about applying a face oil: “Make sure your face and your hands are slightly damp when applying the oil. Rub the oil between your hands to emulsify slightly, then pat it on your face and massage it in. The oil will help trap the water in. ” Is this true? Can the skin really absorb water this way? And if so, is it beneficial in any way? The Beauty Brain respond: The quick answer is: it won’t hurt but it won’t really help much either. How moisturizers work The main moisturizing…

Strip has a deep bronze shade with a hint of shimmer, a golden shimmery highlight, and a deep mauve blush that when swirled together with a fluffy brush gives you a sun-kissed look.

    Charlotte Casiraghi is on the cover of the October issue of W magazine, devoted to The New Royals. It is, honestly, perhaps my favorite photo of her ever taken: simply breathtaking. Photo credit: W magazine/Inez Vinoodh She looks SO much like her mother Princess Caroline (with a dash of Angelina Jolie and a pinch of her grandmother Princess Grace). Photo credit: Hello magazine/Getty Charlotte, who is the new face of Gucci Cosmetics, sat front and center at their fashion show this week in Milan. She was in good company, with Anna Wintour and Kate Moss on one side, and Francois-Henri Pinault…
  • Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week 2014 Recap: Lolo Still Does Not Wear Prada

    17 Sep 2014 | 4:00 am
    Contributor Lolo Michelle writes: Do you know that scene in The Devil Wears Prada where an intern is giving Miranda (Meryl Streep) a choice between two blue belts that look exactly the same and then says, with a straight face: “It’s a tough call. They’re so…different!”? And Andy (Anne Hathaway) promptly snorts because the belts do, in fact, look exactly the same? And then she refers to high fashion as “this stuff” and Miranda goes quietly apoplectic on her? The Tornado of MAC Makeup Backstage at August Getty Yeah, well, that’s me. (Andy, not Miranda.) Don’t get me wrong: I…
  • Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Miami

    Nadine Jolie Courtney
    15 Sep 2014 | 4:00 am
    When I was a kid, I loved going to Miami. My grandmother had an apartment on Brickell Avenue which overlooked the water and all the other high-rise condos, and we’d go with my mother into Key Biscayne for lunch to see where they used to live. It was inevitably hot as hell, and my grandmother wouldn’t always make the most politically-correct comments–in that cringey, IDGAF-way that old people have–but being with family in the place my mother grew up felt so special. Lo and behold, Erik is from Miami, too! Since we’re such a baby relationship (feels weird to…

    Obviously, the biggest royal development this week occurred in Duchess Kate‘s uterus, where a tiny embryo implanted roughly 10 weeks ago is assured press coverage for the rest of its life. The oddsmakers have already started to take bets on what the new Royal Baby’s name will be. Ladbrokes has James as the top pick, at 6-1, with Arthur, Elizabeth and Victoria tied at 8-1. PaddyPower has Elizabeth, Victoria, Mary and Philip at 10-1. Other names? Arthur (12-1), Charles (12-1), Henry (14-1) and William (14-1) for a boy; and Charlotte (12-1), Alexandra (12-1), Alice (14-1) and…

    Prince William this morning in Oxford after Duchess Kate‘s pregnancy was announced As my friend emailed me this morning, “Congratulations! A person you do not know is pregnant again!” Indeed, that’s my favorite part of royal baby news: people patting me on the back and sending well wishes my way, as if I had something to do with it. If last year was the year of weddings, this year has been the year of babies. No fewer than 6 of my close friends are pregnant or have recently delivered, and my baby IQ has skyrocketed. I must say, I feel bad for Kate. (Time for a grammar…

    Ladies, I have had a fragrance epiphany.  Over the last year, I have started to pay more attention to scent anyway; something I’ve had a growing interest in as I get older.  Then I attended an event in Manchester run by The Perfume Society, called ‘Improve Your Sense of Smell’ which has really got me interested in perfume in a way that I have never been interested before!  Anyway…so let me start at the beginning…. The Perfume Society is a is a website for people who love fragrance and the art of perfumery, and people like me who want to learn more about the subject.  As well as…

    Mirenesse are an Australian beauty brand – the top online beauty brand in the country in fact with a stable of cosmetic and skincare products.  The brand looks chic, and from what I can see is quite innovative with it’s products.   I have two products here to review, their new Supreme Secret Weapon 24HR Mascara and someone I’ve been dying to try for a while, their Collagen Cushion Compact Liquid Powder Foundation.

    I must’ve already mentioned that my skin fell apart a few months or so ago – I had the roughest red sore patches on my cheeks, and had to sort of stop using most of my serums and potions in order to let it calm down.  All that mattered was sorting out these crazy dry patches and trying to get my skin back to ‘normal’ or even ‘bearable’. Then I went to a Kiehls event to celebrate the launch of their new Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturing Serum.  I have become a big fan of Kiehls over this last year, just because I’ve found certain products (not everything) work really well for my…

    If you’re rubbish at blow drying your hair, you’re rubbish.  That’s my conclusion.  How anyone manages to use a round brush and a hairdryer on their back of their own head I will never understand.  If you are also pants at blow drying your hair – or you just don’t have time – you SO need a blow dry styler. My mum has been a convert of these kind of hair tools for years (she uses a ‘National’ branded one, my Chinese sisters will know what I’m talking about – which smells of burning when she uses it. But I digress).  My most recent hot air styler, after I…

    I love the concept of the Clarisonic, I really do, and I have had about 4 versions (that I have bought and also as press samples) over the years, because I just like to have one to hand.  But can my sensitive skin handle daily use of this cleansing device? No, it can’t.  I have tried to use this just once a day because I love how it deep cleanses the skin but there’s no doubt that it can make me red, and at worse, break out.   Therefore I have to ration how often I use this brush.  Now! I managed to get my hands of one of their 3 new brush heads – the Cashmere Cleanse, which has…

    Wouldn't it be great to have soft, moisturized skin without using a product full of parabens and GMOs? I feel the same way. That's why I was intrigued by Edu2Be's lotions and body wash. Their products are designed specifically to make you feel more beautiful through nourishing skin care without containing a ton of ingredients that do nothing for your skin. Their powerhouse ingredient is Brazilian oils. These oils are already well known for helping lock moisture in.

I've discovered two concealers from Judith August that not only cover well, but they're incredibly easy to use. The Everything Pencil and Orange Masking Creme will make you rethink concealers. First off is my absolute favorite – Judith August's The Everything Pencil. What makes it so special? It's actually an pencil, which makes applying it just where you need it easier than ever.

  • Can I Use My Facial Cleanser to Remove Eye Makeup?

    I’m all for multitasking and getting more than one use out of a skin care product but when it comes to using your face cleanser to remove eye makeup and mascara, you might want to be careful with this one. Certain ingredients are appropriate for the face, but may cause irritation to the eyes which is a very sensitive area.  Avoid using a facial cleanser in the eye area if it contains: -Exfoliating beads. Particles like jojoba beads and apricot kernels work well to lift off and polish away surface dry skin cells but you certainly don’t want any of these to get into the eye. Ouch!

    A brighter pink than I was expecting! Not a neon pink, just a very sunny, summery shade. This fades away a little bit faster than Jordana’s Sweet Pink, and much faster than Revlon’s Honey; but this is more of a balm and tint than a lip stain, so that’s to…

Etude House claims the new Wonder Pore Freshner is an improvement over Etude House's existing Wonder Pore Product (also called Wonder Pore Freshner, but with a mere 7 in 1 benefits instead of 10), and the moment I posted about this on my Instagram and…

I suppose it makes sense, since DKNY is itself a New York-based brand. DKNY MYNY Perfume: Inspired by New York and its people The bottle for DKNY is pretty cool tool, with a heart shaped bottle top.

There are 6 products in here, so perhaps numbers-wise this isn't the most, but 3 of them are tubs of moisturizers, so I get some credit, right? As an aside, though, I've always felt like the "empties" post is perhaps something only the beauty junkie can appreciate. I mean, normal people with like, 3 eyeshadows and 1 blush and 1 powder foundation and 2 lipglosses don't go around telling people, "O Hai I finished up my eyeshadow! So happy!

In her 2014 book “Diary of a Mad Diva”, Rivers calls Jennifer Aniston “stupid”, Tyra Banks “bulimic”, and claims that “Kanye West’s new son is going to be named P***y in honour of where he came from.” Her acerbic style wasn’t a hit with everyone, and some…

    Melt & Pour soap can be a lot of fun. As far as soap making methods go, this one probably offers the widest range of complexity. You can keep things easy by making a solid colored soap, or spice things up with layers, additives, and embedding. It all just depends on how much you feel like taking on.  This particular recipe is about a medium as far as difficulty goes. It involves coloring and scenting two batches of base and layering them into their molds. The result is a pretty two-toned bar with a pleasant layered scent.  Ingredients 1 pound Clear Coconut Melt & Pour Base 2…

    1 Jul 2014 | 9:43 am
    The summer months are fun but can be so damaging to your hair. With the sun, pools, and our carefree attitude, our hair often feels dry around this time. I have color so sometimes it’s like a double whammy! To help moisturize my hair during the summer months, I of course deep condition. But instead of just my favorite conditioner, I also add coconut oil. Y’all know how much I LOVE coconut oil! It really does wonders! Sometimes I will put straight coconut oil on my hair before I shampoo and let it sit for a few hours or over night. Other times I will add the coconut oil to one of…

    Hey everyone! So I get asked all the time about the green smoothie recipe that I drink. Well, here it is! Now I’m not the originator of this recipe, I use the famous Glowing Green Smoothie recipe by Kimberly Snyder. I LOVE this version of the green smoothie because well it was the first one I ever tried and its soooo good! I prefer smoothie’s over juicing because you get all of the nutrients from your fruits and vegetables. Juicing extracts some nutrients and leave the others. I know some folks may see different, but to each it’s own. Here’s what you’ll need: (…

  • Lip Balm Smack Down: Too Faced La Creme Lip Balms vs. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments

    19 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    Now that fall is approaching, I need to start thinking how I’m going to avoid those chapped lips that plague me every fall and winter. To prevent  dry, cracked lips, I turn to a lip balm vs. a lipstick in the cold weather. For those of you that prefer a lip balm to a lipstick or need more moisture that some lipsticks provide, there are a TON on the market. Today I’m going to compare one new offering, Too Faced La Créme Lip Balms ($22) with Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments ($22.50). I chose these two because they are very similar yet there still is a clear winner in my opinion.

A Badoo study found that 39 percent of Americans spend more time socializing online than they do in person.

I’ve got to admit that this myth is galling and insulting. It’s particularly irksome when some of my gender brethren take up that same mantra (total sellouts!).  It’s one of those untrue generalizations that’s so pervasive that it’s become an accepted fact. Along those lines is the narrative that guys – we simpleminded guys – love sex so much that there’s no way we…

  • Hair Highlighting to Complement your Skin Tone

    3 Jan 2014 | 10:30 am
    When choosing highlighting 80 % of women do not consider their individual skin tone. They usually see a hair color on a celebrity or on a friend, and give it a try and end up hating it. “The biggest rule of thumb is that your natural hair color is the shade range that you should stay within 2 shades of your natural hair color. If you go too far off of  it and you’re likely to wind up fake looking hair against your skin tone. Thinking of high lighting your hair soon follow these basic steps to find the best shade for you.

    Christina Marrale
    15 Sep 2014 | 9:02 am
    Ever come across a product that you wish you knew about earlier? That is exactly how I felt when Solemates, High Heelers came across my desk. These small, plastic protectors save your heels, no matter what the elements are — pavement cracks, sinking grass or bad weather, rest assured, they have you covered. High Heelers also in a variety of colors and sizes, so they'll match any shoe perfectly. To think, all of the heels I could have saved if I had these on them... sigh.I featured High Heelers on-air today with Winging It! Buffalo Style (video to come) and it's safe to say all of the women…
  • A LOOK INTO NYFW BEAUTY TRENDS

    Christina Marrale
    10 Sep 2014 | 10:33 am
    Though fashion week is currently showcasing looks for next Spring/Summer season, I couldn't help but notice how incredibly wearable many of the looks are for fall. Here's a few of my favorites:Matching Reds: It's not a groundbreaking new trend, yet has an incredibly modern feel when paired with a soft brows and slicked back hair. Red is always a staple for the fall/winter season, as it adds the right amount of color to any look.New Take on the Braid: The "Herringbone" braid combines two unique styles in one — slicked-back hair on top and a deconstructed fishtail braid on the lower half.
  • CELEBATE FALL — THREE DIY TREATMENTS TO TRY

    2 Sep 2014 | 4:43 am
    One of my favorite parts about spending time back east? Witnessing a true change of seasons. This time of year evenings turn cooler, leaves begin to change, fashion week coverage kicks off, and my appetite for fall beauty advances. So much so, that I began exploring a few DIY beauty recipes this past weekend, all with ingredients that really hit the spot lately — cinnamon, pumpkin, and of course, apple cider.The outcome not only smelled delicious (especially the cinnamon scrub, yum!), the recipes were rather effective, too. If you're ready to get into that autumn spirit, I highly suggest an…

    Years ago, the thought of putting oil onto one's face sounded ludicrous. But in today's skincare world, it's one of the most effective practices in achieving a beautiful, more radiant complexion and well-hydrated skin.I've been using face oils the past few years and have truly loved the benefits, but was rather intimidated when I first began incorporating them into my routine.

  • SUMMER STAPLE: APPLY YOUR SPF WITH EASE

    Christina Marrale
    19 Aug 2014 | 4:26 pm
    When reaching for an SPF, there are 3 factors that always come to mind: Stick to mineral-based, keep the application simple and use nothing under SPF 30. Which is exactly what Colorescience had in mind when creating their Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen.What appealed to me about Colorescience was the convenience factor — I can apply the refined powder in a flash, knowing it will blend seamlessly into my body, face and scalp. It is also a physical, UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum sunscreen that's free of harmful chemicals and toxic ingredients. I toted the SPF along with me to Vegas last week for my…

  • Lierac Magnificence Gel Cream Moisturizer Review: For Matte, Moisturized Skin

    For those with combination skin, finding a good moisturizer that doesn’t turn to an unflattering “glow” by the end of the day is a challenge. There are a few gel moisturizers on the market that fill the gap. Nonetheless, Lierac Magnificence Gel ($78/ 1.7 oz.) goes the extra mile by adding a matte finish.  Having worn this day and night for the past several days, I can say that this product is: breathable and featherweight-light works well alone and under foundation delivers moisturized, healthy looking skin, and provides a matte surface that avoids the “3 p.m.

     NARS created the look for the Marc Jacobs SS ‘15 runway show. François Nars, Founder & Creative Director, described: “The look for the show features no makeup – we only applied moisturizer. With Marc we always take it to the extreme, we’ve done bold looks in the past, but this season we wanted to make a statement by not applying anything. This goes back to one of the looks that I’ve always loved – bare skin, nothing on the face, lips or eye, just beautiful skin – I love makeup but I also love seeing women without makeup.

    NARS has released a series of reformulated polishes with higher shine, more flexibility, and a longer-lasting formula. There are 43 shades in all, and I have fourteen for a quick preview ($20 each). As with the NARS 3.1 Philip Lim collection (previewed here) (available on Nars.com and Sephora), the new permanent polish range has a wide, flat brush for easy application. These are available at Nordstrom, Sephora, Nars online, Barneys, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdales, I love the new brush-the shorter bristles and shape allow for quick, foolproof application.

  • How Can You Get Rid of Skin Sun Spots?

    Cynthia Bailey, M.D.
    15 Sep 2014 | 11:45 am
      Skin sun spots, also called solar lentigines (solar lentigo if it is just one spot) are common. In my dermatology practice, I am asked every day by my patients to help them fade or get rid of their unwanted sun spots. There are a number of “tricks” and tips that we use to do this. Because sun spots are so tenacious, the best results come from an “all of the above” approach to controlling sun spots. That means using a combination of: prevention (to stop the development of new spots or darkening of existing spots) skin care products that fade existing spots procedures…
  • Bumps Under the Eyes: Causes and Treatments

    12 Sep 2014 | 12:11 pm
    Among the many skin nuisances are tiny bumps under the eyes. These pesky bumps can be hard to remove depending on the cause. Considering how important eye contact is for interactions, it can add stress to this already frustrating issue. Dr. Bailey addresses this problem when she tackles a readers question regarding bumps under the eyes in her blog post: “What Causes Bumps Under the Eyes?“ What Causes Bumps Under the Eyes? Dr. Bailey always recommends visiting you local dermatologist to diagnose any skin problem since the skin is a complex organ (largest organ in your body!).
  • What Causes Sunspots on Skin?

    Cynthia Bailey, M.D.
    8 Sep 2014 | 9:00 am
    Sunspots on skin, called solar lentigines, are due to sun exposure. They are flat brown spots that show up on the parts of your skin that have been exposed to the sun. Once you start getting sunspot on skin, expect them to darken and increase in number with every UV ray that hits your skin. Any UV ray from the sun will darken your sunspots. Yes, that means that even the sun that comes through windows, that bounces off cement or water, or that passes through clouds will worsen your sunspots. What about tanning beds – can you outwit the process by tanning using unnatural UV light? No,…

      To continue on the same vein as last week, we are discussing alternate acne treatments. When medications or skin care products don’t seem to work, people often turn to other options, such as zinc supplements. One particular question Dr. Bailey is often asked from her patients and blog readers is “Do zinc supplements really work to get rid of acne?” In her practice, Dr. Bailey uses her Foaming Zinc Cleanser for body acne or acne caused by pityrosporum yeast as she details in her original blog post How to Get Rid of Back Acne (Bacne). However, the same rules do not…

    Urban Decay has a new palette out that is exclusively available at Ulta, called the Shadow Box. This palette is pretty much a lineup of Urban Decay’s all-star colors, with a couple brand new shades thrown in to make it special.  The packaging here is nice and sleek- it’s cardboard packaging that has a magnetic closure of the UD logo. When you open the palette, there is a mirror on the inside lid, with Urban Decays “Beauty with an edge” slogan writen on the bottom. You get two rows of six eyeshadows, and a nice variety of shade colors. Not so much variety as far as texture goes,…

This set includes a full size Perversion Pencil, which is, in my opinion, the absolute best black liner money can buy, along with nine brand new shades, and UD’s Grindhouse Pencil Sharpener (which, by the way, is THE best eyeliner sharpener.

I also LOVE that there is a mirror that is just as big as the case- and the way the palette opens up means the mirror is…

    Did you know it only takes about 1/10th of a second to make a first impression?  Like it or not, judgments based on our appearance play a powerful role in how we are treated.  So how do you make a good first impression in a job interview without uttering a word?

    I recently tried several products from the Aeveka Naturally Pure Skincare line including the Refreshing Citrus Cleanser, Regenerating Night Crème and Replenishing Co-Q10 Eye Crème. This is an all natural skin care line which means that it’s made with non-toxic and organic ingredients found in nature. It’s also cruelty free and vegan which is a major plus for me! If you’ve read some of my past posts you already know that I prefer natural beauty products because I believe that they are safer for our health.

    Did you know it only takes about 1/10th of a second to make a first impression?  Like it or not, judgments based on our appearance play a powerful role in how we are treated.  So how do you make a good first impression in a job interview without uttering a word? I have been a recruiter for almost 20 years and I have seen everything when it comes to interview attire and appearance. I have also witnessed first hand how hiring managers react to the appearance of candidates.  In a fair world, it wouldn't matter what you look like, but we all know this world isn't fair.  Most…

    I have been slowly re-introducing very mild bath products in my routine since I still have very sensitive and reactive skin because of topical steroid withdrawal, and I am glad to have managed to use up a few products.I was pleasantly surprised by Kiss My Face Spearmint Breath Blast Mouthwash - free of chemicals found in traditional mouthwashes, it still has a strong minty taste that does sting my mouth a little - although not as bad as those chemical mouthwashes - but that keeps me feeling fresh and clean for a really long time. It tasted a bit bitter to me at first, but I guess you get…

    I was never a big user of mouthwash, for two main reasons: I believe that if you use a good toothpaste, you should not need mouthwash to feel completely clean and fresh, and also because I absolutely hate how the alcohol in most traditional mouthwashes would burn my mouth! I also like to stay away from chemicals as much as possible, so I was very happy to be offered to try a natural alternative to tradition mouthwashes.Kiss My Face Spearmint Mouthwash is free of parabens, phtalates, SLS, artifical flavors or fragrances, and gluten.

So when I found myself needing a few items, I turned to online shopping.

  • Beauty & The Beach: Hats & Shades For Warm-Weather Days

    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…

Whereas hyaluronic acid is often injected into the skin, sodium hyaluronate has a much lower molecular size which allows it to penetrate skin when applied topically. Sodium hyaluronate is a powerful skin hydrator: Its small molecules can hold up to 1000 their own weight in water. Since our skin loses its water composition as we age, replacing water loss and keeping skin well hydrated will help to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. As an…
  • My Late Summer Facial "Boost"

    17 Sep 2014 | 11:03 am
    Late summer is my favorite time of the year, not least because my esthetician, Ildi Pekar, will have returned from her annual pilgrimage to Hungary with an armful of new products, at least one new therapeutic machine and a new idea for a facial. This year, it was an amazing treatment she is calling Boost, and I got to road test it a few days ago. Boost features sodium hyaluronate, peptides and ultrasound. The effect is immediate and spectacular — a testament to the potency of the ingredients, technology and the method. When I looked in the mirror after the 50-minute treatment, I hardly…
  • Indie Lee Unscented Body Lotion

    17 Sep 2014 | 8:27 am
    by Tina I have found as I move into my 50s, my skin is definitely getting drier and flaky — my legs in particular. I prefer using unscented and more natural products for sensitive skin. So I was very interested in trying the Indie Lee Unscented Body Lotion ($22). First, let me say it was quite moisturizing. With shea butter and jojoba oil, how could you go wrong? Both are known for their soothing and hydrating properties. Calendula is known for its anti-inflammatory and healing properties. That being said, I have been using this after my shower for about a month now, and my…

  • 6 Simple Ways to Make Your Makeup Stay Put

    19 Sep 2014 | 8:00 am
    Don’t get us wrong: we love it when balmy summer days linger into September—and beyond. But nothing is worse than logging time in front of the mirror only to have your face melt off the minute you step out into the humid, sticky air. From the self-explanatory (primer) to the never-knew-that (creams > powders!), here are six pro-tested strategies for keeping all your makeup exactly where you want it. 1: Moisturizer, primer, then makeup While the last thing you want to do is add more product than you need to when it’s hot and humid outside, pros far and wide agree that primer is a…
  • Love a Bold Eye? Try Our Bat Wing Eyeliner Tutorial!

    18 Sep 2014 | 8:00 am
    Now that you’ve mastered classic winged eyeliner (aka cat eye), it’s time to take it up a notch with the bat wing! The name may sound goth or like something you’d do only for a Halloween costume, but the bat wing is a bold yet truly classy look. It’s similar to a cat eye, but the end of the wing goes further up to the brow bone, and is noticeably heavier, with a distinct shape, resembling—you guessed it—a bat’s wing. Try it on a special night out when you feel like adding that extra wow factor, or basically any time you want to summon an air of retro-glam sophistication a…
  • Nude Nail Polishes for Every Skin Tone

    17 Sep 2014 | 8:00 am
    The nude nails trend is still in full force on runways, magazines, and all over Pinterest boards. It could be a collective mood swing away from all the nail art hype, but there are also real benefits to going in the buff on your fingers and toes. Natural hues can make your fingers appear longer, distract from any cuticle damage or wrinkles, and give your hands an overall flawless look. And chips are always less conspicuous with a soft beige than with, say, fire-engine red—so you can go longer without a polish change. But we also know that the term “nude” is not one-size-fits-all. Just a…
  • Lesson Learned! Check Expiration Dates Before You Get to Set

    16 Sep 2014 | 8:00 am
    As told by Indie Lee, founder of Indie Lee skin care Last year I was invited to join a morning television program for a live DIY segment. The plan: I would show the hosts how to whip up easy, natural beauty products with food items already in your kitchen. This was an out-of-town gig, so my team and I stayed at a friend’s apartment in the area, and went shopping at a local market to get all the fresh ingredients we’d need for the shoot, like oatmeal, fresh berries, yogurt, clementines, flour, and eggs. Everything was ready to go. The early morning call time came, and we arrived at the…

Or rubbed your face in an adorable cat-like manner on your lover’s sweater, only to pull away and realize you’ve left a mark?

And my reply is pretty much the same, drink water, cleanse/ moisturize, sleep well and manage your skincare religiously. It is not about putting makeup on, skincare and what we put inside our bodies does matter both fluids and food. My number one piece of advice is to drink your water and eat it as well, as in try to eat water-based veggies like cucumber, tomatoes, watermelon, strawberries. All these veggies have one…

  • Yummy No Bake Energy Packed Bites

    admin
    10 Sep 2014 | 11:20 pm
    I’ve came to realize that my boyfriend can get really busy at work to the point where he has no time to eat dinner. I have told him numerous times to bring snacks with him. But he doesn’t because there’s nothing to bring until now. This is where the No Bake Energy Bites comes handy. It’s fast and easy to make. It is a perfect snack if you’re on the go, very busy to the point where you can’t take a break, prior to working out, or just because. Ingredients: 1 cup Rolled Oats 1/2 cup Ground Flax Seed 1/2 cup dried Cranberries (blueberry flavored) 1/4 cup…

    What a fun filled weekend of football, both NFL and college. I’m mostly into college football. Go Gators! My boyfriend and a lot of our friends are happy football is back. Yesterday was the first Gator game of the season against E. Michigan. Gators chomped on the opponent with a whopping 65 – 0. Super excited with what our offense have to offer this year. With all these games that my boyfriend has to watch today, of course we got hungry. I haven’t had his Tri-tip in awhile. We had left over grilled Vallarta marinated chicken breast and some other fresh ingredients in the…

    I look at the clock and it’s already passed noon. I have to be ready at 4:45PM for my boyfriend’s birthday dinner at Los Toros with his mom and older sister. I did not want to leave the house without cooking something for my family. I opened the fridge. There were tomatoes, carrots, red bell peppers, and fresh Italian parsley. Spaghetti sounded like a perfect idea. There’s more than enough time to go to the store, pick up a few items, come home then cook. My boyfriend and I rushed on over to Sprouts. He decided to tag along since it was double ad Wednesdays. I ended up…

    3 hours ago marked the end of my boyfriend’s birthday. To end our night, my boyfriend and I shared a 12 oz bottle of Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA to his request. This beer is one of our special limited beers, and we only open 1 special beer for special important occasions. What can I say about this beer other than I love it so much ? The 120 IPA itself is 120 IBUs and is”boiled for a full two hours while being continuously hopped with high-alpha American hops, then dry-hopped daily in the fermenter for a month and aged for another month on whole-leaf hops” – Dogfish…

    Today, my boyfriend and I were supposed to go to The Long Beach BBQ Festival. All you can eat ribs, chicken, pulled pork, salad, sides, desserts, and drinks for $80. It includes beer and wine as well! Then we started thinking. What if the food weren’t up to our standards and they served beers that are whatever? Then we just wasted $160! Because whoever knows me, knows that I do not like drinking shitty beers (i.e. bud light, etc). So instead, we decided to just make our own food and buy drinks that we actually enjoy. We would avoid disappointment because we know our food is just that…

    Getting rid of hair loss should always mean a complete knowledge of how hair grows and what it is made of. When you are aware of such small things, it becomes easier for you to ensure that you are taking the right steps to stop hair growth. It is highly likely that you are unaware of the hair growth cycle. As a result of this, you start to panic with even the slightest of hair fall. In reality, losing about 100 strands of hair is quite common and it would not have any negative effects on your hair as well. How hair grows? No strand of hair will remain on your head forever.

    I love the look of textured nail polish. However, many textured polishes tend to scrape off easily making the effort of applying them practically useless. The Feather polishes from Pretty Woman are another story entirely. You can achieve a textured look that is still smooth to the touch minimizing the chance of it scratching off. Right now I’m calling Pretty Woman’s Feather nail polish in Kingfisher my fun polish. It’s like tiny pieces of red, yellow and blue confetti having a party on your nails.  I applied Kingfisher solo just to see how it would look on its own. It took…

I’m often discouraged when I see 10% assigned, or a vague statement and you’re not really sure which charity the money is going to, or better still, that the money is going to a charity that spends more money on administrative costs than it does research and supporting the local community.

Loss of elasticity around the jawline (drooping jowls) and on the rest of the face is a very common sign of aging. It is part of the natural aging process. HOWEVER, there are a number of things you can do to prevent the early loss of elasticity and reduce the speed at which the skin loses elasticity. Tight jawlines change as we age. But first, let’s talk about how our skin begins to lose elasticity. When you’re young, you can pull at your skin and it will quickly pop right back into place. (Note:…

You found yourself a spot in the living room and settled into it, claiming it your own. You visited so often and for such increasing durations of time that eventually you became a fixture and I became so used to seeing you, feeling you, hearing you there that I began to fear you leaving.

  • It’s X-Factor Time.

    Sarah-Louise Bailey
    19 Sep 2014 | 5:41 am
    Can you believe it is that time of the year again when the X-Factor has rolled around and this year sees a line up we haven’t seen before, with Simon and Cheryl coming back after four years away, Mel B being the new member of the panel, while good old Louis although he had seemed to be leaving at one point, is still there. I came across a quiz the other day, which asked ‘which X-Factor judge are you?’ So I decided to give a whirl and find out who I was most like, anyone fancy a guess at who I came out as.. Would you believe it if I told you it was Louis? I was getting ready…

    Autumn is just around the corner and well known store Marks and Spencer are ready to help us battle those chills, with their brand new season of clothing. As a store they have very much stepped into the 21st century, gone are the days I remember from my youth, of trying to stop my Mum from dressing me there and here are the days where I really fancy getting my hands on some of their pieces.

    Pets can bring you so much joy, honestly there is nothing quite like being woken up in the morning by your favourite pet, or the greeting they give you, no matter if you have been out for a minute or a couple of hours it is always over enthusiastic. But it’s not all good there’s hard times as well – the times when morning is the middle of the night and they decide they need to go out and spend ages in the garden, or when they are ill and you just don’t know what to do to make it better and of course there is the fact most animals do not live as long as us and one day…

  • Sunscreen: this before that…

    Wendy Kwei Makeup Artist Sydney
    16 Sep 2014 | 9:23 pm
    With the onset of Spring and the rapid increase in UV rays, sunscreen should be the most important step in your skincare routine right now. Speak to anyone with UVA damage and pigmentation and they will quickly tell you how difficult it is to treat and get rid of permanently. Sun avoidance (unrealistic) and sunscreen (realistic) are the best protection you’ve got against UVA rays. But when should you apply your sunscreen? Is it before your moisturiser or after? It seems simple but the answer isn’t straightforward because it depends on the type of sunscreen you are using. The first step is…

    I’m a big fan of Laura Mercier and her makeup line, in particular her primers and her secret camouflage concealer. I love this statement taken from the Laura Mercier Australia Facebook page: “I’ve always been interested in making women look as beautiful as possible, while making them look like themselves”. I couldn’t have said it better myself! And the truth is when makeup is applied well, either by yourself or a makeup artist, people don’t notice the makeup, they just see you!

    Wendy Kwei Makeup Artist Sydney
    21 Aug 2014 | 8:16 pm
    I’m often asked about age defying makeup, and when you should start using it. The truth is biological age actually means very little when I’m applying makeup on someone. I meet women who are 50+ yet look closer to 40 and 20 year olds who could pass for 30. I don’t focus on age, I focus on the skin. I do believe there are certain times in life when internal and external factors can have a dramatic impact on your skin and face. By external, think of relocations to a different time zone or season, and by internal I mean hormonal shifts like puberty, pregnancy, or menopause. These factors…

    Detail from Victorine Meurent, Edouard Manet, 1862. She was the Kate Moss of her day, her face ushering in a realist art that shocked the Paris bourgeoisie. But who was she? Observers at the time assumed she was a common courtesan, the artist’s lover, or maybe just a scamp from the street. She wasn’t a classical professional artist’s model, who would have posed gracefully, portraying nymphs and muses of old. Nor was she a socialite whose life would be chronicled …

  • Dealing with a Frenemy

    We all have at least one. Frenemies. The urban dictionary describes a frenemy as being: “Someone who is both friend and enemy, a relationship that is both mutually beneficial or dependent while being competitive, fraught with risk and mistrust.” Which I think is a perfect explanation of a frenemy. So, here is the question on everyone’s mind: WHY DO WE KEEP OUR FRENEMIES IN OUR LIVES? Maybe a better question should be, what can we do to change a frenemies status from frenemy to friend? Your frenemy may be a co-worker, sister, friend from college, friend of a mutual friend,…

  • L'Occitane: Lavande Love

    15 Aug 2014 | 12:00 am
    Every time I step foot into a L'Occitane store, I fall in love with not only the lovely smells but the selection of beautifully packaged goods. Each item is something to admire and I love to display them in my beauty corner. L'Occitane is also very close to my heart as I first discovered the brand during my time in NYC with my mum for my 18th birthday which feels like such a long time ago now!I had never been a huge lover of floral scents until recently. I remember reading articles containing tips for better sleeping which always suggested spraying lavender mists over bed linens or having the…

After spotting the perfect white bag though, I decided to just live on the edge a little and give it a go!House of Fraser is somewhere I have shopped for many years.

  • Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait: Long Wear Lip Gloss

    30 Jun 2014 | 12:00 am
    Coco Chanel is my all time favourite designer. I love everything about the sophisticated brand she built and it is no secret, to most who know me, that I am a little obsessed!I remember when I was younger, Chanel was the first designer brand that I really knew of... I was quite girly (until I hit my awkward stage) and loved my Nanna's pearls. I always thought that Chanel was pronounced "Channel", which is quite funny, thinking back to it now! It was not 'til I reached college age that I started to really appreciate everything about fashion. That is when my attitude completely changed and my…

Pillowettes by Intrinsics are miniature cotton pillows for your face, and they are wonderful. Made from 100% absorbent cotton fiber, Pillowettes are ideal for makeup removal, and the fact that they are lint free makes them perfect for a variety of different uses. Before I start a makeup application, I always prep the skin. The first step of this process is cleaning a client’s skin with a cotton pad soaked in cleansing oil or micellar water. Is it…

    You know a product is good when you get one of those dinky, mostly useless, barely one time use samples in a little paper satchel . . .and you actually end up buying the product.  Those things make me so mad most of the time. Especially the foundation ones!  “Ah yes, I really think I’ll enjoy this foundation based on the 1/4 inch patch it covered on my left cheek.”  Nope, that’s not what happens. BUT thats exactly what happened with the Agave Healing Oil.  I got a tiny sample with a Sephora order and just slapped it in my damp, freshly washed hair thinking…

    I love when I find a simple, easy trick that makes a huge difference.  To be fair this isn’t really like some magic trick that I found, it’s a very common eyeshadow blending technique, but I feel like it gets overlooked a lot.  I always see tutorials where people USE a transition color, but don’t explain it.  In fact I’m guilty of it myself, both in video tutorials and I even skipped over it in my post on blending tips!  What’s wrong with me? Get it together, Quinn! So basically, this is the simplest thing ever, but it will make it much easier for you to…

    Sometimes the writing of a blog post requires me to do insane things that no person would ever do in normal life.  For example apply and remove five or more lipsticks in one day. Who would do such a thing? My lips were not built to survive that type of abuse.  Don’t get me wrong I love every second of it but it can leave my lips a little . . .sore and crunchy.  It’s sneaky too because it may feel fine after all those swatches, but then the next day its like cracked, dry old lady lips. Ga-ross. Of course I have an arsenal of lip balms, scrubs, treatments and DIYs that I use to…

For the  9 pm show at Lincoln Center, the call time was 6pm– and every minute of the three hour prep was needed. The area behind the actual runway was divided into two  main spaces– one for the  designs to be shown on the  runway and the other for hair and  make-up.

    11 Sep 2014 | 10:15 am
    Last  year I was so  astonished at the fantastical towering stilettos at Fashion Week, I barely  paid attention to the clothes.  No only did the heels routinely soar to 5-6 inches, they were studded, sequined, feathered or a combination  of all three.  I knew that I could  not even stand up in these shoes  much less walk around Lincoln Center. Feet, just  like the rest of the body,  changes as the years goes by.  After  age 50 we lose fat pads on the sole, joints swell and lose flexability. To bottom line it,  younger  feet can  frolic in stilettos, but  women of a certain…

    I used to think that I need a full coverage foundation to cover my imperfections. And for years, I was stuck to cover my blemishes using full coverage foundations. I used Elisabeth Arden Flawless Finish cream foundation for years, and it was good in covering dark spots, but on the other hand, it prevented my skin from breathing, pimples used to appear overnight whatever I do, and my face would sweat as if I am exercising just because it is a little bit hot. It wasn’t easy to keep a fresh looking makeup, and sometimes I ended up with a cakey face! That is why I did not like to use…

    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. Especially at night, when I am wearing makeup,I make sure to remove it all before I go to bed.

I do not remember where I read about that first, but most brands recommend cleansing first.

That's it..Anyway, we tried it, and surprisingly it worked! 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.

To my surprise (and lack of research..), this is actually a clay mask.

It's almost like a sting and it's a bit painful. I can feel the solution irritating my skin and I can see the bright red mark it leaves behind.When my friend gave me the Vichy Normaderm series, I wasn't too excited. It's probably not any different than the rest of the products I've tried. After what felt like never-ending insistence, I decided to give the toner a chance. This is a huge first for me.

I've tried many scrubs, but they were so harsh that my face became really dry and tight; I couldn't even smile or laugh without my face hurting. My regular cleanser (I use Cetaphil) is really gentle on my skin, but it doesn't clean well. I notice that there's still some residual makeup left on my face even after using a cleansing cloth and my face wash! Absolutely ridiculous.

Her handmade jewelry, paintings and sculptors are also beautiful/haunting. I really love this necklace in particular.

Our skin and hair are good indicators of what we have been eating over the long run. The occasional grease or fatty food is not going to show.
