    22 Jul 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Source: Getty We all learned about the color wheel in elementary school art class, right? If you want to emphasize a certain color, just look at what color is across from it on a color wheel! What color is it that emphasizes green? Looking at actress Keri Russell here, at a red carpet event last week, she totally used the color wheel to her advantage! As a fellow green-eyed gal, I'm loving how Keri's deep purple eye look is making her eyes the centerpiece of her whole look! It's edgy, yet feminine, and I just love it! Wanna try Keri's look?

The most important factors are that it smells good, absorbs quickly, moisturizes effectively, and doesn't break the bank (at least I don't want to spend the bulk of my beauty budget on either body cream or body moisturizer).Read the full post Frugal Snob: Nip + Fab Launches New Body Products which appeared first on Snob Essentials.

    Just like Kim Kardashian, Glee star Naya Rivera pulled a wedding stunt. But, hopefully, unlike Kim's 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries, Naya's legal ties to Ryan Dorsey will last until death do them part. Naya caught the media's attention by sneakily saying "I do" to Ryan, just three months after splitting with her ex-fiance, Sean Paul. Sounds very reality TV to us! But the similarities between Naya and Kim go beyond bridal - the two celebrities (who are friends!) have a lot in common when it comes to their beauty style.

And it's easy to see why this hairstyle is a celebrity favorite: you can wear it in Fall or Summer and twist the strands into any variation your heart desires - fishtail, two-strand twist, and more.

They have similar noses, the shape of their upper lip is eerily the same, and in the movie, the makeup artist extended the tails of her eyebrows in true Kidman fashion. The resemblance…

It had semi-opaque color payoff but is prone to sheering ouot, so it seems to apply mostly as a wash. To build it up, you really have to wait between layers. It takes about thirty seconds or so to set–plenty of time to blend and work with it–and wears for nine and a half hours on me. I didn’t have any issues with fall out.

The Bruno Acampora showroom was one of the most anticipated ones. True, we can get all of Bruno Acampora fragrances here in the US, but there's nothing like visiting the source.

    Laura Mercier just released six more colors in the phenomenal Caviar Stick range. Regular readers know that I'm a huge fan of these cream-in-a-stick eye shadows because the smooth formulas are incredibly easy to work with and offer an all-day longevity once the color sets. Laura Mercier has made it easy to achieve a very sophisticated look with absolutely no effort with these Caviar Sticks-you paint the lid, smudge as much or as little as you want (just do it quickly, before the color is dry), and that's it. Just add mascara.Out of the six new colors I got Peacock, a rich turquoise, and…

I've already shown you the stunning Subra and Desdemona, and here are the last two I bought: Dione, a beige champagne and Himalia, a warmer metallic camel . The wonderful texture is the same molten metal which you can apply dry or wet. I've come to really enjoy working with a damp brush to get the most out of them. My favorite way to wear these are using one of the dark colors (Giove, Subra, or Desdemona) to create the shape on the lid,…

Now Hourglass is joining the fun with a gel formula in a mechanical pencil. A very very thin mechanical pencil (hence the 1.5mm). From the press release the new Hourglass liner seems to be a true hybrid: not a gel-like pencil, but a real gel inside a pencil-like applicator that holds enough product for a 17 to 20 uses. This is not a lot, which I guess is why the mechanical eyeliner will also be offered in packages of three units ($45) as well as a…

    I've always loved the scrubby manliness of an exfoliating bar of soap.  Something so perfect about scrubbing the dirt off my skin that makes me feel extra clean and feeling refreshed.  I think the only scrubby soap I did not care for was luffah soap.  I felt like my skin was being scraped off with razor blades.  And I like my soap rough, too.  Ground coffee, sand, volcanic rock, whatever....but you can keep your whole loofah and razors.  It's just not for me, thank you.SO I've been looking around at exfoliating soaps, loving the texture of seeing them, being that…

    Sunglasses and eyeglasses have the power to turn an ordinary outfit into an effortlessly chic outfit.As someone who has amassed a collection of sunglasses and relies on a tried-and-true pair of cat-eye glasses to hide the bags under my eyes, I can appreciate Warby Parker's new Beacon Collection, which is inspired by spontaneity and a nod towards the morning star that shows up just before sunrise or just after sunset.

    We should take a page out of the cat's playbook.A day of relaxation on a regular basis is good for the mind, body, and soul.I remember Sundays as a young girl. I would play outside with the neighborhood kids, read a book, or listen to the radio and practice drill team dance moves. Sundays were a day with no agenda. You did whatever the day gave you. It was a day off school and that's all that mattered.Read more »

  • Bethenny Frankel Can Wear Daughter's Clothes, So What?

    17 Jul 2014 | 3:45 pm
    In the age of social media there has been so much celebrity bashing, which frankly, I'm pretty annoyed with. Let's talk about the latest drama of Bethenny Frankel, the ex Housewives of New York City star who posted a picture on Instagram modeling her 4-year-old daughter's pajamas.I don't see anything wrong with being a little silly, and hey, if you can fit into children's clothing, so what?! She looked cute in that Hello Kitty top and I would wear that in a heartbeat. Once in a blue moon I'll find a girl's size 16 dress or shirt that I can wear. That's a fashion crime because???

    Thinkbaby sunscreen is a beauty best seller on Amazon this week. Let’s look at the label to learn why.  For a zinc oxide only sunscreen it’s hard to find fault with this formula. There is, however, one important point to note about the rest of the ingredients – they’re not in the traditional order that you might expect! If you read ingredient lists you’re probably accustomed to the standard practice of listing ingredients in descending order of concentration. (At until you get below the 1% level, then they can be listed in any order.)  But this product takes…

No, the ad doesn’t actually say that but the imagery of the model regressing back to babyhood certainly implies it. And that brings me to the second thing I like about this commercial. 2. The quaint special effect imagery from the early ’70s. The transitions are well done and the models are well chosen. (Except for the final baby image whose jet black eyes creep me out and make me wonder if we really…

In an article published on Futurederm, it’s explicated that 2.0 mg/cm2 is about 1/4 teaspoon of sunscreen for the average person. However, in the Allure article, author Jenny Bailly wrote this: “For your face alone, you’re looking at about half a teaspoon.” I thought 1/4 was too much, but 1/2? I’ll never be perfect with sunscreen application then. Can you please address this on your blog? The Beauty Brains respond: The answer is there is no…

    I love this product. Skin 2 Skin Care Photoaging Repair Cream. Pigmentation and uneven skin tone is such a problem today.  Dark Spots, Photodamage are known as sun damaged skin is something that most people will not escape. It occurs with exposure to sunlight starting at an early age with 25% of our exposure occurring before the end of our teens. Even if you limit your exposure as an adult and use SPF there is a real possibility you will develop dark spots.   Even if you get rid of your pigmentation, it can come back immediately just spending a short time in the sun without protections.

    21 Jul 2014 | 1:07 pm
    I can’t talk enough about how important it is to take care of your skin. Dry, oily, sensitive, no matter what your skin type, it’s important to research and talk to a skincare specialist about the right skincare regime for you.Personally, I have dry, sensitive skin, and I’m also prone to rosacea. Yesterday I posted about Mirvaso (brimonidine) topical gel, 0.33%, a new topical gel specifically developed and indicated to treat the persistent facial redness of rosacea. Mirvaso is all about treating the redness, so you don’t have to conceal with makeup.  The Break Up with Your Makeup…
  • Stop Concealing, and Start Treating!

    20 Jul 2014 | 6:20 pm
    For a long time in my teens, I had issues with extremely red, pink cheeks. My dermatologist at the time finally diagnosed me with rosacea, and I was able to treat it properly. But up until I was diagnosed, I tried multiple brands of cover up and powders to try and disguise it, but really I was just making it worse!  I still get flare-ups once in a while, and have to be careful of the products I put on my face.Here’s a little background on rosacea:-        Rosacea affects an estimated 16 million Americans-        24%…

Whether you are working a 9-5 office job, chasing after children or frantically researching for an essay, you need a break from the grind once in a while. It doesn’t have to break the bank either, although a teeny bit of budget set aside for your stress-busting needs can go a long way.

The stuff is quite frankly magical and can be applied and even cooked with to reap a multitude of health benefits. Use it as…

    10 Jul 2014 | 11:31 am
    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!

    One more quick circle lens review! I'm kinda obsessed lenses and lashes lately.

BN.inc Special Selection Value Pack #20 LashesThe lashes I'm wearing are by BN.inc, a brand I've never tried before. They're a long, spiky style (my favorite) interspersed with short cris-cross fibers. They're much softer and more flexible than most of the similar spiky lashes I've tried so they curl easily and don't come up as easily at the edges. I love them…
  • My thoughts on two different gel polishes

    Scrangie
    7 Jul 2014 | 9:52 am
    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,…

So, sometimes I wear circle lenses in different colors instead of my regular clear contacts.

When speaking to Ms. Sui, she described the scent as “it’s the same girl who wears La Vie de Bohème [launched last year] but this is what she wears at night.” She’s still very bohemian and romantic but at night she comes alive. “She’s like a modern day Shahrazad,” she added. Notes in this fragrance include: champagne citrus, blackberry, lotus flower, rose, oud, cedar, vanilla orchid, patchouli and amber. It’s a pretty scent and one word to describe it after wearing it…

To balance the pop of color with the rest of the look, Tamah gave Judy a 'summer smokey eye' which gives the eyes definition while veering away from using the typical dark colors normally associated with the traditional smokey eye. With beautiful braided hair by hairstylist, Gregory Russell completing the look, Judy has given the summer look not…

Here’s a look back at the year in Gorgeous George: All photos via Clarence House Getty Images Getty Images Getty Images Getty Images Rumors are getting louder that Duchess Kate might be pregnant, although I don’t believe it’s true (yet). Rumors I do believe suggest that William and Kate will start trying at the end of the summer, in the hopes of giving birth next year when George is 2.

  • Hotel Review: Marriott Delray Beach Villas By the Sea

    Nadine Jolie Courtney
    21 Jul 2014 | 4:00 am
    A couple of weeks ago, E. and I went on a Florida tour, visiting Palm Beach, Delray Beach, Miami, and Key West. While in Delray Beach, a cute beach town with the perfect mix of upscale and party atmosphere, we stayed at the Marriott Delray Beach Villas By the Sea. The Marriott Delray Beach Villas By the Sea are 8 enormous villas at the corner of the hotel, situated directly across from the beach, with their own private pool and jacuzzi. The 8 villas are available as 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom cottages, and each is cute and cheerful, with nautical-themed decor in shades of blue, white and…

  • Lovely Baby Skincare: Weleda Baby Derma White Mallow Review

    Row
    24 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    Ever since Baby H was born, I have been committed to only using good quality, natural skincare on him.  As a result I have tested many many different brands.  H has normal to dry skin, and has suffered eczema, from serious (an infection on his scalp) or lingering small patches which have all but disappeared.  However, in certain conditions (for example in the current British heatwave) he is prone to rashes which can be itchy and red.  I haven’t yet found ‘the one’ when it comes to baby skincare for him – the main staples of his routine is a hair and skin wash, followed by…
  • Ellis Faas Creamy Eyes E108 and Glazed Lips L306 Review!

    Row
    17 Jul 2014 | 6:19 am
    I have used Ellis Faas a good few years ago and I admit I was’t feeling the brand. But, I like to give things another go wherever I can, especially when a few years have passed and there’s a chance of a formula change!  I have here an Ellis Fass Glazed Lips in L306 and a Creamy Eyes eyeshadow in E108.   Ellis Fass packaging is the unique long sleek pen style with the pointy tip. It’s a very particular type of packaging that makes it unique, it’s not really practical (none of my make up bags are THAT long) but it is cool.   To use the colour just twist the base so that the pigment…
  • Peripera Frozen Make Up Collection, Elsa and Anna make up looks – Part 3

    Row
    16 Jul 2014 | 6:16 am
    My final post about the Peripera Frozen Make Up Collection.  The collection in its entirety consists of two eyeshadow palettes, lip glosses, some base products (face powder and cushion foundation), eyeliner and 3 nail polishes.  I have used the make up now, one look using the Anna colours and one using the Elsa colours.  I also used various eyeliners from the liner set.  Here is the Elsa look – it’s a purple eyeshadow palette with a bright pink lip tint.  I am a fan of purple eyeshadow and bright lips but I admit I wouldn’t wear these together as they are both quite bright. I…
  • Peripera Frozen Make Up Collection; Magic Glam Lip Tint Review & Swatches – Part 2

    Row
    16 Jul 2014 | 5:12 am
    Part of the Peripera Frozen collection are two lip products, the Magic Glam Lip Tints in Let It Go (Elsa’s colour) and I’m Happy Kristoff (Anna’s colour).  Both colours appeal to me, one is a bright pink and the other is an orange coral.  The packaging is super cute: Magic Glam Tint is an interesting and very likeable texture – it reminds me of YSL’s Glossy Lip Stain – it applies like a gloss, but has a very shiny finish, but also a lot of pigment. One coat is sufficient, but two leaves a really nice rich colour. As it’s a tint, it also stains and lasts surprisingly…
  • Proskin Clinics Treatment for Pigmentation & Sun Damage!

    Row
    15 Jul 2014 | 6:30 am
    Pigmentation, brown spots and an uneven skin tone really wasn’t anything I thought about much until recent years when I noticed light freckling appearing on the top of my cheeks.  I ignored it; it wasn’t that noticeable, but in recent months, with getting older and pregnancy, the pigmentation areas are gradually getting bigger and more bothersome. I admit, I have not always been the biggest sunscreen user – my make up always contained it, but in terms of using a separate SPF, it just wasn’t something I though I needed in the cloudy North of England, but the sun can be a big…

  • Get the Look: Judy Greer at the “Married” Premiere

    Hayden Sorensen
    23 Jul 2014 | 12:07 pm
    It's the middle of the summer so what better way to keep your summer look than to keep your makeup and hair light and fresh! Using inspiration from Judy's Jimmy Choo tomato red clutch, makeup artist Tamah uses a red lip to add to the pop of red. To balance the pop of color with the rest of the look, Tamah gave Judy a 'summer smokey eye' which gives the eyes definition while veering away from using the typical dark colors normally associated with the traditional smokey eye. With beautiful braided hair by hairstylist, Gregory Russell completing the look, Judy has given the summer look not…

Read on to see how you can get Becky's new look: Start with the eyebrows by brushing them into place with clear brow gel and begin heavily rimming the eyes with COVERGIRL Bombshell Intensity Liner in Pitch Black Passion. Once the line is dark and intense, apply a matte dark brown shadow to the lid, using a firm eye shadow brush. Once the dark brown shadow is applied, use Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Melted Caramel with a blending…

  • Master Class Recap: 7 Summer Skin Survival Tips

    Renée Rouleau
    22 Jul 2014 | 8:30 am
    It’s summer and that means extra attention needs to be paid to your skin to prevent damage, brown spots, redness and increased oil. I recently held two amazing master skin care classes in our Plano, Texas skin care spa and since we have so many fans across the globe who of course couldn’t attend, here’s a recap of what I shared plus some Q&A.  1. Wear sunscreen faithfully. SPF numbers—a higher number doesn’t necessarily mean it’s more effective. Did you know that an SPF 50 protects only 2% more than an SPF 30? Use a minimum of SPF 30 like found in Daily Protection…

    In magazines, blogs, or on TV, you’ve likely come across an interview with a celebrity who has been asked “What are your secrets for keeping your skin looking beautiful?” They usually share something that seems so simple, and rather effortless, yet, does it really work? Is it really how they look so young?  As someone who works with celebrities giving professional facial treatments as well as teaching them how to care for their skin at home, I know that the secret to beautiful skin is not so easy (or as accurate) as they can make it sound.

  • How Do Hormones Affect the Skin in Your 60s?

    Renée Rouleau
    11 Jul 2014 | 8:30 am
    Intrinsic aging is determined by heredity, your genetic programming that controls the hormones responsible for aging. The skin will certainly behave differently under the influences of these hormones, but how do they affect it from ages 60-70?  Estrogen is very involved in the normal function of the skin. It directly affects the role of key cells in the skin, like the fibroblasts (produce collagen and elastin), keratinocytes (closely involved in skin protection for retaining moisture) and melanocytes (involved in evenness of skin color). Estrogen also grabs onto water and holds it in the…

    I've mentioned before in my previous post that this year's Singapore Blog Awards has been quite the eye opener for me - and it doesn't seem to stop! After my epic journey with a hair dryer and a hair straightener/curler, I now get the chance to get up close and personal with a heated eyelash curler and a face steamer! And these touch your face and skin so much closer than hair tools do! So you may be wondering, what exactly are these strange products?

You've also probably heard that they are unsafe, and can cause cancer (in particular breast cancer) because they are endocrine disruptors. But are they really unsafe? What does the science say, beyond the hype? I've actually touched on the topic before, but it was in the comments section of…

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!

  • FitRazor: Green Smoothie Recipe

    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: (…

    10In following the Racinne Ultimate Aqua Blanc Series skincare regimen, the Racinne Ultimate Aqua Blanc Brightening Masque was to be used twice a week. Despite sheet masks being all the rage in Korea, this particular masque to my delight, is of the tubed variety. Perhaps it's not just me, but sometimes I just don't feel like my skin absorbs product from sheet masks very well. I digress!

    10You might wonder to yourself as you read the title of this review, "Did I miss the NARS Day Series Eyeliner?" The answer is no, no you didn't. There's no such thing as the NARS Day Series Eyeliner, just the Night Series Eyeliner. The Night Series Eyeliner is a new type of eyeliner introduced in the NARS Night Caller Fall 2014 Color Collection. I recently test drove the Night Series Eyeliner in both Night Clubbing and Night Porter and discovered that you can actually wear it (and rock it) anytime of day.

I recently discovered that Racinne, a skincare brand from Korea, is easily accessible via their US-based e-commerce site and several retail locations throughout California. Given that it's so difficult to get a hold of Korean skincare products without paying a bit in international shipping, I decided to give Racinne and their Ultimate Aqua Blanc Series a try. This particular line is suitable for all skin-types and addresses uneven skintone, enlarged pores and oil…

    I remember a time when flats were considered casual. Women wouldn’t dare attend a cocktail party wearing shoes that didn’t contain at least a tiny heel. Flats were the footwear women secretly changed out of before walking into a major event, and then changed back into when the night was over. Now, flats are in, and can look just as stylish as a fabulous pair of heels. Here are some flats that will keep you looking glam while wearing that cocktail dress. Try pointy flats that add a bit of sophistication to the casual flat, or solid colorblocking to spice it up a bit. Pour la Victoire Add…

      You’re out on the beach, on the streets, in a park or so forth. You spot a stray piece of trash, a stray bottle or runaway plastic bag. Pick it up and toss it in the trash. If it’s covered with grodiness, look for a leaf or something to cover your hand first. (I live near a populated beach area; I know of what I speak.) This move is cool on so many levels it’s hard to count. It communicates that you give a rat’s behind about keeping our fair Earth nice. It demonstrates dignity and a community consciousness.

        Your buddy, the aloe plant. Get one. Tomorrow. Yesterday. Aloe Vera plants are only about $10 and need zero maintenance. They are a lifesaver for repairing sun-busted skin, as seen above. Plus, they make excellent face masks. Tip: If you have sunburn, apply and re-apply fresh aloe as often as you can. Your skin will literally suck up the aloe goodness. Results seen after approximately 36 hours… and the burn was fairly bad.

      I’ve been wanting to write about ties for a while. They are a fairly vital part of a man’s style arsenal. A tie can pull together a man’s look (or not), plus transmit his personal style sensibility in an instant. The location of the tie, on the heart of the body and close to the face, makes it an accoutrement that every man should put some thought into. Even the man who purports to hate ties and dressing up and all that stuff should know he’ll be wearing a tie on some fairly key occasions in life…perhaps at his prom, wedding, while doing grown-up work stuff…

I am a Coca-Cola girl through and through.  My personal favorites are Coca-Cola and Coke Zero.  If I’m told by a restaurant they only have Pepsi products, I either opt for Mountain Dew or water.  To me, regular Coke has a crisper, less heavy flavor than Pepsi.  As for Coke Zero, it seems to be more carbonated than typical diet sodas and isn’t as overwhelmingly The…

    I've talked about the connection between inflammation and anti-aging before, but today I wanted to give you a look into one of the ways I help to reduce the inflammation in my body.

I instantly fell in love with the benefits for my body and my skin, but was rather turned off by their high price point.

    18 Jul 2014 | 10:41 am
    Like cosmetics, purchasing a great set of lingerie gets me feeling confident. Whether I'm having a date night with my hubby or spending the day indoors working on a deadline, it just has a way of always making me feel feminine and beautiful.For the longest time, I had avoided investing in some truly great pieces as there was always the concern of having them ruined by uh... you know... that time of the month. But after being introduced to U by Kotex with 3D Capture Core, I've quickly realized you don't have to avoid splurging as long as you've got the right protection. No leaks, no worries,…
  • MIKA'S MANE TIPS

    Christina Marrale
    16 Jul 2014 | 4:45 pm
    Last month I had the pleasure of meeting up with my favorite stylist in LA, Mika Fowler. Seriously ladies, I kid you not, this woman will give you the best haircut of your life! Everytime I book an appointment, I'm always thrilled with the end result. During our most recent meet-up, she chopped 3+ inches from my mane, leaving me with a fabulous mid-length 'do.I've always trusted Mika's expert opinion, so with an upcoming trip to the east coast on my calender, I decided to pick her brain about proper summer haircare — here's what she had to say:Invest in haircuts regularly, you shouldn’t…

    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…
  • THE LAUNCH OF BEAUTY CHAT

    Christina Marrale
    9 Jun 2014 | 10:38 am
    I discovered my passion for beauty very early in life. As a child, like most young girls, I would watch my mother do her makeup in complete awe. The red lipstick, the powder, eyeshadow... it was all so fascinating to me. But that's not what sparked my passion. As I observed her regimen, I wondered about each of the product's function, texture and purpose. Why she choose certain shades with her coloring and why on earth would she religiously put "mud" (also known as the Borghese mask) on each week. These thoughts consumed me, making it clear that I wanted to be involved in this industry in…

    I have no idea how I stumbled upon Pinkish Trends but I am very happy I did because I found these shoes.  I can’t even handle this combination, it’s blowing my mind.  I can honestly say I’ve never been a huge fan of animal prints (I know I KNOW) but I can’t resist this coral pairing.  Oh and did I mention these are $36 SHIPPED?  You’re welcome.

    Over the past few months, Yves Saint Laurent has been quietly reinventing several beauty items, including these Yves Saint Laurent Couture 5-Color Eyeshadow Palettes ($60 each).

If you don’t know about the Guerlain Super Aqua-Serum moisturizer line, the first few words seem to come from the anime genre.

This is a sheer, emollient foundation with buildable coverage that is packaged in an elegant, unique, fun little wand. The Smart Wand is now available in four shades at Sephora and Marc Jacobs Beauty. I ordered this in the shade Light 210, which runs slightly cool and light on my NC15/20 Chanel Ivoire skintone. It was certainly in a good range for me, and I don’t mind going a little lighter on my foundations. Unlike his other foundations, Marc Jacobs’ Smart Wand is…

    It seems that every Fall, there are a handful of items that insiders identify quickly as the must-haves of the season.

Yves Saint Laurent’s Couture Leather Fetiche (Leather Fetish) 5-color eyeshadow palette ($60) is one of those items for Fall 2014.

    Last week I did something I’ve been wanting to do for years, but could never muster up enough courage.  I donated 10 inches of my hair to Locks of Love. I’m almost embarrassed to talk about the emotional attachment I’ve developed to my hair. It serves as my personal security blanket.  Whether I am feeling insecure about my bad skin or out-of-shape body, I can always rely on the presence of my long flowy locks of blonde hair. For some, hair is just an inanimate object and changing it’s color or cutting it off is no big deal. But for many others, our hair is a distinct…

Smoky collection came out in Spring and the colors were perfect for spring time - pastels, but not the way we're used to see them. No, shades from the Smoky collection contain super small black shimmer which makes all the difference. Although the colors are nice and spring-y, they also look murky at the same time.

     I recently read a review of Lumina Lacquer nail polish and decided that it was too pretty to pass up. I wandered over to the Lumina Lacquer website to pick up a few bottles.   One of the colors I purchased is called Silver Springs ($10 USD). Silver Springs is a limited edition, silver holographic microglitter in a clear base. It's delightful! Also, Lumina Lacquer is 3-free!I also love the cobalt blue Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy Longwear Nail Enamel in Wild Card so much, but wanted to hide some tip wear so I applied the Lumina Lacquer in Silver Springs on the tips as a sort of glitter…

    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…

For a beauty junkie on the go, it’s hard to edit down your product (can’t we just take it all?). Thankfully, we always carry a pliable and stylish makeup bag that will only fit so much, which forces us to just take the basics when we’re on the move.

I had dyed my hair at around the same time so wanted a treatment which would really lock in the colour and give it an extra moisture boost that I find hair needs after using dye. This mask is one which hits the brief entirely and here’s why! To be honest I haven’t used a hair mask other than the Essential Rich Premier Ultra Honey Hair Mask so that has been the only product I reach for. Problem is that with it being only available online or in Asia,…

    Recently, I was given a full-size tester of Mineral Hygienics Sheer Perfection Mineral Finish in Translucent ($18/20 g). I have oily/combination skin, so I always set my liquid foundation with a powder. However, most that I’ve tried tend to accentuate dry spots or cause a white cast in photos (Make Up For Ever’s HD Microfinish Powder is an infamous culprit for creating this effect in many photos of celebrities, such as Nicole Kidman and Ashley Judd). Having never heard of Mineral Hygienics before, I did some researching on the brand before testing out the powder. All of their…

Obviously, I’m not talking about the cute sprinkling of freckles you inherited from your Aunt Patty; I’m referring to the larger variety that seem to pop up overnight! Sunspots, age spots, liver spots, whatever… they are unsightly and you just want them gone. At soon to be 57 years of age, I have my share of these little reminders of my past.

I am super sensitive and very prone to redness and irritation. I sometimes get these dry, itchy spots like little flaky islands in pools of oil. So yeah, I've got some weird skin. So I've found proper exfoliation and light moisture to be the best combination to keep those issues in check, and I obsessively read labels and research ingredients. Yep, life was good and my skin was normal for one brief moment in time. Then, I found myself in this…

I’m a woman with dry, extremely sensitive skin who has graced this planet for almost 61 years. Like any beauty-conscious consumer, I’m interested in trying new products, but given my skin’s propensity for irritation, I typically have some reservations about testing anything without first doing a little homework. I’m pretty familiar with face serums but had never heard of “facial oil” or the ingredient squalane for that matter. While…
  • How Menopause Affects Your Skin and Hair

    24 Jul 2014 | 5:59 am
    Women enter menopause between the ages of 40 and 58. Menopause is defined as the day a woman has been diagnosed as not having a menstrual period for 12 consecutive months. For me that was when I was 51; for the average American woman, menopause strikes at the age 46. Changes to mood, weight, energy levels and skin are, of course, in evidence years before and for years after. And it comes down to estrogen. Estrogen is a powerful hormone and the effects when its levels change are far-reaching. Plummeting levels of estrogen and the changed ratios of the different hormones in your body will…

    Full disclosure: a few years ago, I stopped shaving my legs. I’ve been happy ever since (and I have more free time in the mornings). But every now and again, I want to slide between the clean white sheets on my bed feeling smooth, fresh, and silky. So off I go to the waxer and $65 later, I’ve got violently red legs that are supposed to stay fuzz-free for up to a month. But I find that my leg hair starts to grow back within a week, and then I’m stuck grumpily shaving weird little patches in the shower and wishing I could get my money back. Besides waxing, I’ve tried shaving (too much…

  • The 4-Product Routine and Other Simple Tips from Budding Beauty Icon Amanda Sudano-Ramirez

    24 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    When you’re Donna Summer’s daughter, two things are certain: You’ll be an absolutely stylish stunner and an even greater talent. Such is the case with natural beauty Amanda Sudano-Ramirez, one half of the up-and-coming folk/soul/pop band Johnnyswim. “Always do what you love, that was her biggest thing,” says the singer of the advice her mother, who passed away in 2012, gave her. “She constantly taught us to be passionate about something and go for it.” The message stuck with Amanda and her sister Brooklyn Sudano, an actress best known for the TV series My Wife and Kids (Brooklyn…
  • “Cheat Killer Cheekbones!” & More Basic Bronzer Advice from Charlotte Tilbury

    23 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    London–based makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury knows a thing or two about achieving the perfect glow, having spent her childhood on the Mediterranean island of Ibiza. Unsurprisingly, her go-to for getting the effortlessly sun-kissed look of her hometown locals: the right bronzer. “With a big natural brush, a well-matched product, and some subtle contouring, you can get a natural, gorgeous glow as if you’ve just returned from a long weekend in Ibiza,” says Tilbury. Because bronzer—though an essential for many of us—is tricky to master, we asked Tilbury to share her basic glow-getting…

    by Jackie Silver, Aging Backwards Did you know honey does a lot more than sweeten your tea and baked goods? This natural treat also moisturizes, sanitizes and even reduces inflammation. Plus, you can even use honey for beauty! In fact, honey has been used for healing purposes since ancient times, most commonly as a wound disinfectant. Plus, the fact that honey never goes bad made it extremely useful to keep on hand before modern refrigeration was invented. A tomb uncovered in the Egyptian Valley of the Kings proved honey was used when pharaohs reigned. According to TourEgypt.com, “Some…

    I am often asked this question, “Why did you become a makeup artist?”. When I started my makeup career I was motivated by the artistry side, my love for art and the world of fashion. Six years ago, I was living in Singapore and had an incredible opportunity being in a country with an emerging fashion scene. As I began practicing and learning, I loved seeing the impact of makeovers and being a part of a bride during her most important day. To my fortune, I was in a circle of great artists and mentors, multi cultural clients, stylists, models and photographers who let me create or…

These lip glosses and lipsticks are non-comedogenic, hypo-allergenic, allergy tested, fragrance free and paraben free. After trying them myself, I can tell you these are not just your ordinary lip glosses, they are very solid on pigment and formulated to stay on for a while.

    Although the past few days have been nothing but humidity and rain here in NJ, nothing brightens my day like talking about bronzers. Since I don’t go in the sun or tan even, I rely on bronzers to give me a glow of sorts when I do my makeup day or night. Choosing a top five favorites was difficult, as I tend to gravitate towards the palettes and swish around with color, so in lieu of that I present you a list of my favorite, makeup artist approved bronzers.

I didn't have much experience in this area, so I started to do some research online. Turns out that it's an up-and-coming trend in the U.S.! Since then, I've been seeing a lot of articles in magazines talking about Korean skincare products and the multi-step routine that's popular in Asia. I've learned that they have some really unique qualities that set them apart from Western skin care. So I've actually been using a Korean…

It's non damaging since it's not actually dye. It is also used on dry hair which is so much easier than wet since you can see where you're putting it while your hair is already styled how you would normally wear it.The box tells you that it may last longer on damaged or color treated hair which is absolutely true!

Lots of navy, red, white, khaki and a whole lot of black.  Black was my color pick of every occasion, it is classic and never goes out of style.  It worked with my personality and always made me feel comfortable.  It wasn’t exciting but it worked.  As I edged out of my twenties and into my thirties I found a friend was pushed my no color boundaries and suddenly I found myself grabbing yellows, greens and aqua, even light pink to wear on a daily basis.  Honestly, it was scary but also a tiny bit freeing.  As…

We all know exfoliating is a good thing and we do it to soften skin, reduce ingrown hairs, bumps, even out skin tone, help tan last longer, absorb creams better etc etc but loofahs, scrubs and spa mitts never do that good a job for me so I was pretty skeptical about the Dermasuri mitt claims as the best exfoliation ever, but it blew away all my…

    Guerlain 4 Seasons Terracotta Bronzer  (£43/$76)I just realised I never write about bronzers, which is weird since it's probably the most popular makeup product for women after mascara. My only other bronzer review post was over 2 years ago! I still completely stand by that review and I realised I never write about bronzers because I always use the same two: the one I already blogged about 2 years ago and this Guerlain 4 Seasons Terracotta Bronzer.I am crazy about the 4 Seasons, they match perfectly for all skin colours and look so natural on everyone.

I've blogged about so many LRP products (like the best Miceller Water Cleanser and the BEST SPF 50 Tinted Moisturiser) because I truly believe in, love and use their products all the time. LRP have brought out a CC cream as part of their fantastic Rosaliac range that treats skin prone to redness.

    The hair transplant cost is important to men who consider doing hair replacement therapy. At times, the loss of hair cannot be bearable any longer thus necessitating the need for hair transplant.

    Originally published as Q&A: Whiteheads Vs. Blackheads, What’s the Difference? from the Mario Badescu Skin Care Blog. You ask, we answer! Q. What are blackheads? A. Also known as open comedones, blackheads are widened hair follicles plugged with keratin squamae (dead skin buildup), oil, and sebum. Despite their name, this type of acne can actually range anywhere from yellowish to a dark, grey-brown in color and appear as small dark spots on the skin. Blackheads are most common during puberty when oil production is at an all-time high, and continue to be prevalent in those with…

    16 Jul 2014 | 8:49 pm
    Hourglass Radiant Magenta Ambient Lighting BlushHourglass Radiant Magenta Ambient Lighting Blush ($35) is a lovely medium warm pink with a satiny finish. It looks like a fairly cool-toned pink in the compact, and even swatched with the finger, but on the cheeks the pink really warms up to my skin. The color has a Spring/Summer pink vibe as it pulls pinky-peach on the cheeks. The Hourglass Ambient Lighting line of blushes are still fairly new, with the initial launch this past February. These blushes combine Hourglass' Ambient Lighting Powder - which is a luminous finishing powder,…

It has a little bit of a frost and shimmer to it, but it's pretty subtle, and actually looks matte on my lips in low lighting. I'm not really a fan of frost, but it's subtle enough where it's not a deal breaker for me. It's very pretty and I think a color that is well suited for the Spring.The coverage is mostly opaque with one coat and applies smoothly to the lips with a satiny feel. I originally thought that the formula would be drying, but it actually feels pretty…

This color in my eyes is the definition of Spring/Summer, and is a fabulous shade to rock all season long. Much like Chanel Sourire Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick (in my previous post), it's a great color for those with warm, golden undertones and will brighten the face instantly. The coverage is light but buildable, and pairs really well on top of any pink, peach or coral lipstick and it also looks great all on it's own.Chanel Glossimers is one of my favorite formulas of lipgloss…

    Chanel Sourire Rouge Coco Shine LipstickChanel Sourire Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick ($35) which means "Smile" in French, is a soft pink with fine golden shimmer. It looks like a bright watermelon light pink in the tube, but once the color is applied, it's a sheer warm soft pink. It's a great universal shade especially on warm skin tones, as the golden bits gives the pink some added brightness, so it's not a pink that will wash you out. In fact, it's one of those perfect lipsticks that you can mindlessly toss in your bag for every day and it's so subtle that you can wear it on your no-makeup days…

    When I moved last year, we decided to get blinds in a couple of the rooms, I was worried about ordering them online but websites such as Made to Measure Blinds UK take the hard work out of making sure you get it right. One of the main reasons I decided to go for blinds was the windows here are abnormal in size, which meant if we went for curtains or blinds they would have be tailor made and while I wouldn’t have believed until after I had investigated more into the costing, blinds actually came up a lot cheaper, in fact at places like Made to Measure Blinds costs can start from as…

  • 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.
  • Check & Refresh

    Wendy Kwei Makeup Artist Sydney
    3 Jul 2014 | 6:16 pm
    We all make New Year’s resolutions but with everything else that goes on at the start of the year, they’re often hard to keep! 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? Foundation texture: is your…

    25 Jun 2014 | 10:36 pm
    Makeup artist Laura Mercier’s facebook tip (above) for finding the apple of your cheek is right. But when it comes to blush placement, if you’re using your apple as a guide, make sure that you’re not applying the blush too low. How do you know? Have a look at your blush when you’re not smiling. If your placement is below your nostril, the blush is actually having the effect of dragging your face down. I always recommend applying blush when you’re not smiling. Your cheeks will be at their natural level (as opposed to smiling level!) which will ensure that your placement is exactly…
  • Foundation: meet your match tool

    Wendy Kwei Makeup Artist Sydney
    20 Jun 2014 | 4:51 pm
    I don’t know many women who actually enjoy shopping for a new foundation. Typically most women fall into the rut of repeat purchasing until the foundation colour or makeup line is discontinued. Women of colour have an even trickier time because they are faced with a limited colour choice. So to combat this, cosmetics companies are constantly trying to think of new ways to encourage consumers to make the switch. The presence of makeup apps and website tools in the past few years has certainly had an impact and helped minimise the reluctance we feel when changing foundations. Iman Cosmetics…

    It’s great news that Australia’s first Sephora store is opening in Sydney later this year! But what everyone’s been talking about is whether they will price match with the US and will we get the complete range of makeup products. Yesterday’s Australian Financial Review article confirmed part of the pricing situation. Sephora will be “matching US prices, rather than local prices, for brands new to the Australian market”. While the jury is still out as to which brands will fall into the “new” category, it’s safe to assume that Sephora’s own makeup line will be included. This…

    Bad girls – we may fear them, and we’re supposed to hate them. But some of us love them! I do, and I know I’m not the only one. But what makes a villainess so special? And what makes her so attractive?   Let’s start with looks: heroines may be ravishingly beautiful, but villainesses are undeniably hot. And not necessarily in some inborn perfection or spending-hours-in-the-gym-working-on-their-bikini-body way. The villainess’ image is self-created shock and awe – you can’t take …

But there are also all the curious finds that sell only in specific countries, whether by beauty standards, culture, or legality.

  • Pretty Casual Using Too Faced Chocolate Bar Makeup Tutorial

    28 Feb 2014 | 10:10 pm
    I have another tasty makeup tutorial using Too Faced Chocolate Bar for you. The inspiration came from the very pretty eyeshadows, Candied Violet and Black Forest Truffle themselves. These two stand out on their own amongst the other brown-toned shadows and with my strong affinity to the color purple, I knew I would do something with these two.I didn't see how the colors would turn out exactly in my head so I just let my eyes and hands do the work. I like how the look turned out but didn't expect the purple to look so neutral on me. It's not completely unexpected I suppose..it's a neutral…

I own the Nude Beige shade, which I found to be perfect for my skin.  I found the consistency to be light and creamy.  It wasn’t heavy and didn’t leave me with a sticky feeling.  I was able to apply it without any issues and I loved the overall softer appearance it gave my face.

    Anyone can tell you that a "good hair day" is much more than that.  Good hair translates to a great day where you feel confident and beautiful and are ready to conquer your to-do list (and anything in between).  It's those bad hair days - after staying too much in the sun, dabbling in some diy ombre, or over-using the straightener - that make me truly appreciate the glorious "good hair day."Over the years, I admit I've made my mistakes that resulted in damaged hair and hair breakage, and I am now ready to fix it all and get my healthy hair back with Neutrogena Triple Repair System.

    Do you believe that a hairbrush can have magical powers? Have you tried The Wet Brush? A hairstylist friend of mine gave me The Wet Brush as a gift several months ago and it’s a game changer. If you haven’t brushed your hair with one, I know it sounds too good to be true. How can this hair brush be different than any other hair brush on the market? I’m not sure how, but The Wet Brush glides through even the most knotted, wet or tangled hair with ease, and not a hint of pain. I have a lot of hair and it takes me a long time to detangle it when it’s wet. I inevitably end…

Companies such as Avon and Estée Lauder (who own MAC, Smashbox, Tom Ford, Bobbi Brown etc), have even altered their prior no-animal testing policy in order to sell in the country. On Monday, June 30th, the Chinese Food and Drug Administration has officially stopped requiring animal tests on ‘ordinary cosmetics,’ including make up, fragrances, skin, hair and nail care products!  Troy Seidle, the…

It was actually a three-day trip. Our first day was spent within the city and I may, or may not blog about as it's all city-ish stuff. The second day…

    Skin Whitening VS Skin Tanning   It might be a bit of touching sensitive topic here for some people. We are not discussing about either skin whitening or skin tanning is the right way to go for. Well for me, there is nothing right or wrong for both the concepts. Tanning the skin or skin whitening simply means different things to different culture and people. The Differences… There is a concept of Asian country to classify beauty is having luminous and fair skin. Having white skin means you look prettier, lovelier, more alluring and appealing to the opposite sex. It never crossed…

    A Fairer Skin Equates to Beauty? Believe it or not, for centuries Indian women have been raised to believe that fairness is beauty. The country is obsessed with fair skin, they think looking better means you need to get fair skin. In reality, a lot of Black Celebrities are getting lighter and lighter skin for some reasons. In India, they think looking better means you need to have fairer skin. [Source: newsfeed.time] Well, it was kind of depressive. However, aiming for a fairer skin is not just applying topical lightening creams that we can find in our local drugstores or skincare boutiques.

    22 Jul 2014 | 10:10 am
    Every high schooler has a dream of wearing the most unique and outstanding dress at Prom Night. Same was in the case of 18-year-old  Julia Reidhead, a very artistic minded girl.  Julia was very excited about her Prom night, but no dress met her expectations. So after trying a number of dresses, she decided to make her own dress. I guess this was a very nice idea because I believe when

As the weather changes so do our skin needs, and that is the time to go for a perfect moisturizer hunt. I

    Revlon ColorStay Foundation is available in 20 different shades, especially designed for the oily skin, however it says it’s a light weight foundation on label but I am a bit against its light weightiness. You can find a number of products from MAC and L'Oreal which are way lighter than this one, but it does not make it a bad choice if you have oily skin and you are a working woman. I

  • NOTD: Gingham Nails

    La Vie En May
    23 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    There's something about the gingham pattern that's just so cool. I especially love the pattern in black and white. The contrast of the light and dark bring out the distinctness of the pattern even more. How could I resist putting this design on my nails? Luckily, I didn't have to do it from scratch. I can't imagine how long it would take me to paint this pattern on all ten of my digits. The nail stamps I bought a few months back had a gingham pattern on it. It was still a tedious process, but the result is much better than if I tried to paint it on myself. I'd give myself 10 minutes of really…
  • Product Review: Perlier Shea Butter Hand Cream

    La Vie En May
    21 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    My hands can always use a good lotion. They get pretty dry during the day - after I wash my hands, after lifting at the gym, etc. - and I end up having to moisturize my hands at least 4-5 times a day. I don't always have hand lotion readily available either, so there are times when my hands just suffer from dryness for hours. When I had the chance to try out Perlier Shea Butter Hand Cream, I was very skeptical. It's going to be like all the other hand creams I have. Soft, velvety feel that lasts at best 5 minutes before it wears away.Well, I was wrong! The cream is thicker than most and is…

    After a long and almost endless winter, summer has arrived: bright sun, warm days, time for refreshing fruit salads, ice-cream and crisp cocktails.When it comes to fashion, summer is above all other things the swimsuit season - one of the most beautiful and frightening times for all of us!  After months of hibernating in layers (and perhaps too many hot chocolates?) we now have to shed our clothes and face the “swimsuit challenge”.Back in the day the choice seems to have been far simpler: string triangle top and matching bikini bottom with ribbon side ties.

  • On Finding Out What You Really Want, and Great Things on the Horizon

    Angie
    27 Jul 2014 | 11:55 am
    I had to take some time from October of last year to about a month or so ago. I didn’t write any posts on this blog, or my business blog, just lots of client work and living my life. The past 6 months in particular have been pretty eventful, and most of it has been tough and full of lessons on getting my shit together. I feel like this past year has been a transformational journey, just not in the physical sense. It all took place on the inside. I won’t go into the details because they’re just too personal, although I might later on when I’m ready. Sorry for being so…
  • Nail Polish Color Associations and a Shopping Guide!

    Angie
    17 Jul 2014 | 7:11 am
    In the past, I wrote a post and made an infographic all about color associations (color therapy, chromotherapy) and nail polish colors. That infographic got kinda popular on Pinterest — as of right now, it’s been pinned over 200 times! It seems a lot of you really like this idea of painting your nails to subconsciously tap into the good vibes of a certain color. I mean, all you have to do is look down at your hands. What is color therapy, exactly? Color therapy (chromotherapy) is a pseudoscience practiced by alternative healers, which is believed to alter a person’s mental,…

These women have a beauty that shines out from the inside as well, and that’s even more beautiful! Erykah Badu A musical goddess. She’s always fascinated me! I love her independent stance on politics (you can admire some’s independent thinking, and not entirely agree with them), and her views on spirituality: “Personally, I don’t choose any particular religion or symbol or group of words or teachings to define me.

  • Selfies Aren’t Selfish: Busted Misconceptions About Them and Why Selfies are Good

    Angie
    7 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
    Selfies really aren’t a new phenomenon. Famous painters used to sit for hours and paint themselves, and one of the first photos ever taken of a human was a selfie. The mirror selfie was invented waaay before the ancient relic that is the old version of Myspace. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with taking pictures of yourself. What harm are you doing? Your soul isn’t being sucked into the camera. You’re not becoming a vain shell of a human. Selfies allow you to control how you’re seen by the world. There are way too many people telling you how you should present…

    Animals are so precious. Don’t they seem like they’re better than humans sometimes quite often? A female animal will take over the nursing of another animal, even from a different species. You’ve heard of mother cats adopting baby bunnies, or a female golden retriever adopting a kitten? It’s just so stinking cute, and they do it out of sheer motherly instinct. The desire to take care of a little one is universal. We adopted Zoey a few weeks ago. She was a stray that was hanging around the place where my husband often goes while he’s driving his truck. She ran up…

  • Develop a Strong Mind and Some Confidence with Yoga Tips

    MiBellaReina - Beyond Beauty
    27 Jul 2014 | 12:00 am
    Not to say women have different esteem issues than men, but we do. How do we develop a strong mind and some confidence? Strong-mindedness is not stubborn or willful. A strong mind has a set of beliefs, which give you integrity and a complete sense of confidence. Can you always feel confidant?  Maybe not always, but a strong mind with a strong body will give you self-esteem and posture to overcome most obstacles. Working out the body with just about any exercise will increase your confidence, but yoga seems to create such a mind-body connection that it’s easier to achieve with yoga.

    Attempting winged eyeliner can be very scary at first, but let’s discuss how to do winged eyeliner with liquid liner. You will find that with the right tools and a couple of tricks, your makeup application can be really fabulous. Also, practice makes it easier.

All make amazing winged eyes that are sultry and smokey, but they have a tendency to smudge, smear or never dry. The key to making the winged…

    24 Jul 2014 | 12:00 am
    How do I get healthy skin is probably the number 1 question from clients at the spa. Everyone is different and so the answer may be different for every person. Healthy skin is a combination of nutrition, lifestyle, and products used on your skin. One thing is for certain, your skin is a reflection of your health. When you are healthy, your skin is healthy. Likewise, when your skin is a mess, you need to listen to your body. It is telling you that you need to change something with either your skin care regimen, your lifestyle or your nutrition (i.e. food). 4 Tips to Get Healthy Skin Getting…
