Makeup Tip: Beautiful Eyes

Makeup Tip: Beautiful Eyes by Sheila Dicks

Eyes have been called the windows of the soul because of how much they communicate. Eyes give your face energy and individuality. They do not have to be a certain size or shape to be considered pretty - all eyes have their own unique beauty. When makeup is applied to look natural it will bring out the eye’s true color and enhance the eye’s beauty. When you feel good about your makeup you will be more confident and will have one less thing to worry about.
A subtle application of eyeliner, shadows and mascara work together to create magic and make your eyes look their best.

Eye Shadow

Eye shadow is meant to highlight and define the eyes. Eye shadow is used to create depth to bring out the beauty of the eyes. A dark color used on the lid will make the eye appear smaller, while a lighter color will make it appear larger. That is what eye shadow is about creating illusions.

These are the basic techniques for the following eye shapes:

Small eyes: Don’t use too much shadow or liner – it will make you eyes look smaller. Apply a light color on eyelid, use a darker color in the crease and use a highlighter under the brow.

Large eyes: Wear darker shadow on the lid and extend it to the crease. Use a flat color under the brow to highlight.

Deep-set eyes: Use light colors on the eyelid and under the brow. Use a medium color in the crease. Emphasize the outer corners with shadow.

Wide-set eyes: Use darker colors on the inner corners of the eye.

Hooded eyes: Apply light colors on the lid. Use darker colors from the center of the eyelid to the outer corners and blend.

Round eyes: Make round eyes longer by using color all around and extending toward the outer corners.

Asian eyes: Apply highlighter under the brow. Use light shadow on the inner half of the lid and a darker color on the outer half.

1. Light colors cause the eyes to open, dark colors will cause the eyes to recede
2. If you have very light skin avoid dark shades
3. Be careful with shimmer – they will bring attention to imperfections and wrinkles.
4. The eye area is the first to show age don’t tug on the skin.


Eyeliners are meant to define the eyes so they should do just that, not be the focal point of your makeup. Eyeliners come in various colors and forms liquid, pencil etc. Keep the eyeliner natural. Pencils are available in many colors (for the best look stick to black or brown) and can be sharpened for a fine line. For a smudged effect use a sponge tip shadow applicator or an eye shadow brush. When your pencils are too soft refrigerate them. When they are too hard soften them by holding them between your fingers.

To line the eye, start on the lower lid, just beneath the lashes. When you are finished always smudge the line with your sponge. Stay as close to the lash line as possible. On the upper lid, draw a line form the inner corner to the outer corner, thickening the line toward the outer corner. After the age of 40 keep the line in between the lashes.

Mascara and the creation of beautiful lashes:

Mascara frames your eyes and can make your face come alive. Mascara softly accentuates the eye while thickening and darkening the lashes; it is the finishing touch for eyes. There are several different types to choose from, thickening, and waterproof to smudge proof. Waterproof will need a special remover and smudge proof will wash off easily. It is not a good idea to wear waterproof mascara for extended periods of time since it has a tendency to dry the lashes.
Select a shade of mascara that complements your coloring. Dark shades on pale eyes with brown lashes will darken them and will look harsh. Stay away from blues and other colors since they will ruin your look.

Lashes that are hard to curl may need the help of an eyelash curler. Curl your lashes before you apply mascara – hold for ten to twenty seconds.

To apply mascara look straight into your mirror with your chin slightly lifted so you can see your lashes. Insert the wand only once and twist, don’t pump. Pumping can break the brush bristles and distribute the mascara unevenly and will dry out the mascara faster. Start by rolling the wand from root to tip in an upward motion. Reinsert the brush and apply again. If your eyelashes are thick and long they may clunk together. If this happens let them dry and then separate them with the corner of an eyebrow brush.

What is a Thermal Face Lift

What is a Thermal Face Lift by Dr. Jim Greene

No one likes to see wrinkles and other signs of aging show on their face. Your face is the most important visual aspect of your personality. Wrinkles, loose skin, and other imperfections can obscure the real you and give people the wrong impression.

Let's face it, most of us feel young inside, but when you have obvious signs of aging on your face you just won't appear that way to others.

That's why many people look to face lifts to solve these problems. It essentially pulls the skin tighter against the face to restore that youthful look.

Traditional face lifts require incisions that allow for skin and muscle reconstruction. It's a real medical procedure that requires a lot of time to heal properly.

Other trends like acupuncture and 'instant' face lifts provide non-surgical solutions with mixed results. The newest trend in non-surgical procedures is the thermal face lift.

It's officially called the Thermacool face lift and wad developed by Thermage.

This requires no incisions or any invasive procedures. It uses radio-frequency waves that penetrate the skin.

These radio waves help to tighten skin by heating the layers beneath the skin and causing them to contract while building up collagen. Since heat is involved, some irritation does occur but this can be countered with an anesthetic cream.

The procedure is approved by the FDA and takes only an hour to complete. It is effective for the areas around the eyes, namely the cheeks, eyes, and brow.

Most results aren't visible until months afterwards, but immediately afterwards there are some visible changes. Thermacool is one of the only FDA approved non-invasive treatments available for wrinkles. Though it is not as dramatic as a face lift, it can help to remove fine lines and crow's feet around the eyes.

For some people, especially those with busy schedules, a traditional face lift is not an option. It's simply too time-consuming. That's where a this can be handy. It only takes an hour and there's no drawn out recovery process. All of the work is done internally without incisions so there's no risk of complications.

Since the procedure uses radio frequency waves, the results of a thermal face lift vary depending on the skill of the surgeon.

That's because the surgeon can't see exactly what's going on beneath the skin so it will be all up to his or her training and timing. There are some risks of burns if the radio beam is held too long in one place, but these incidences are rare

Update Your Hairstyle with Bangs by Inge I

If you want an easy, low-maintenance way to update your style, get inspired from the latest celeb trend and old favorite: get bangs! The great news is that bangs are not only the perfect option to get stylish but they're versatile to practice new looks framing beautifully the face. It's also guaranteed to knock years of you!

Blunt Bangs
The most on-trend of all the looks are the heavy, blunt bangs instantly updating a simple medium long hairdo. This type of bangs can suit a wide range of face shapes. The secret is in altering the width and depth to suit the individuals' bone structure and hair type.
For the best results ask your stylist for wide, blunt bangs that fall on your brow line when it's dry. How to style them yourself

Section back the sides, take the first inch of the bang then clip the rest back. Blow-dry the inch section straight down and then work backwards until you run out of bangs. Finally, use flat-iron over the ends in a downward motion and finish with hairspray or light shine spray.
Tip! Dry your bangs while they're absolutely wet and always use your fingers to avoid any wayward growth patterns spoiling the shape.

Wispy Bangs Fine hair types can get away with long wispy, feathery bangs. This type of bangs suit women with oval face shapes or those with larger foreheads who want to soften their features and emphasize their eyes.

Ask your stylist for eye-skimming softly layered bangs, but avoid any mention of blunt, heavy bangs.

How to style them yourselfApply smoothing serum to the bangs area and volumising spray through the root area and longer lengths. Blast dry with hairdryer using your fingers to create volume in the root area. Finally use either a paddle or a large round bristle brush to tame the longer lengths.

Tip! Remember not to over work bangs. Keep it as natural as possible and hold them in place with a quick mist of your favorite hair spray.

Side Sweeping Bangs
This bang would suit women with square shape face or with at least strong jaw lines. It's not really for the shy and retiring! For the best results ask your stylist for soft, textured, sweeping bangs. Make sure you emphasize that you want dramatic, heavy bangs, you don't want them whispy and thin.

How to style them yourselfThis is a great "blow and go" style. Just pull the bangs forward while blow drying, then place over to one side and add a quick mist of strong hold hair spray and you're good to go! Tip! To get a more casual look, try pulling all your hair back off your face but leave bangs down to soften the style

Lose Weight and Get Gorgeous

Lose Weight: Get Gorgeous by Julia Denham

Now you're losing weight, it's time to focus on your looks, because let's admit it, part of the reason you want to lose weight is to look gorgeous. Beauty starts with the inner you, and since you are what you eat, you need to make sure that your diet includes foods that will increase your beauty.

If you have a lot of weight to lose, you may be worried about "loose skin" syndrome: flaps of loose skin on your chin, underarms, tummy and thighs. To avoid this, aim to lose weight slowly. This gives your body a chance to adjust, so to speak. Include plenty of protein in your diet, and eat lots of vegetables for the vitamins and minerals that your skin needs. You also need to add some monounsaturated oils.

Add Oil To Your Diet To Smooth Your Skin

Whatever kind of diet you're on, your skin needs oil, otherwise it will become dry, flaky and unsightly. It will also become less elastic, contributing to loose skin syndrome. Researchers have found that when you add a dressing made with olive or canola oil to your salads, it may increase your skin's radiance - your skin becomes smoother, softer, and reflects the light, giving you a healthy glow.

Drink Lots Of Water For Soft, Smooth Skin

Water should be your primary beauty aid.

Water is wonderful. Not only does it fill you up without calories, but it also flushes toxins out of your system. You're healthier, and your skin is smooth and lovely.

Don't overdo the water, but make sure you drink a glass of water when you get up in the morning, before each meal, and in between meals too. When you're not used to drinking a lot of water, it can be hard to remember, so just tell yourself that you're taking a beauty break when you sip a glass of water.

After you start to drink more water, you'll notice the difference in your skin within days.
So there you have it - two simple easy ways to get gorgeous as you lose weight. Remember the oil on your salad dressings, and drink lots of water.

The Power Of Beauty

The Power Of Beauty By: Sher Matsen

Have you ever wondered why women are so concerned about how they look? Why they aim to look like the beautiful women they see on the television and in magazines? That’s because beauty is power!

Even way back into ancient times women were concerned about their looks. Think of Cleopatra or Nefertiti who were beautiful women of their times.

The cosmetic industy is well aware of this and that women will go to great lengths to look beautiful. That’s why the cosmetic industry is a multi billion dollar industry.

When you think of beauty you think of what you see on the outside. But beauty is more than skin deep. And beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder! What one may find beautiful another may not. Even though there is no such thing as a definition for universal beauty all women know how to use their beauty to their advantage

Men fall for this manipulation constantly. In fact they seldom know they’ve been snared into the web with a woman’s beauty. Of course the know when exterior beauty is mesmerizing them but it’s the internal beauty that they have not idea is working. That pouty mouth, those sparkling eyes, that gentle laugh. The power play of the boardroom and the bedroom share many similarities.

It’s a proven fact men are unable to release themselves from the beauty of women. A quick look, a wink, a big inviting smile, a relaxed posture are all indications that a man has succumbed to beauty. Studies have shown even the smartest men go stupid when entranced by the beauty of a woman.

Remember Sophia Loren, Jane Collins, or Jaqueline Bisset. Think about Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, Madona, Marilyn Monroe. There beauty had an instant effect on the male population. Not only their exterior beauty but the deeper inner beauty of confidence and mystique that surrounded them.

These women were all show stoppers without even trying. In fact when asked they felt their features were flawed, but men didn’t see it that way. And yet each of these women were totally different in looks and personality. But each brought a certain group of men to their feet. Each had the ability to take the smartest man and turn him into a walking talking zombie stuttering, and staring.

Remember a beautiful woman is more than the exterior shell. Beauty is the whole woman. Personality, charm charisma, seductive sexuality, a smile, or a stance. There are many elements to a womens beauty than capture a mans attention and lock him into a world of bliss.

There is no cure for the poor male population, no pill to pop, no treatment to make them free of the power of a beautiful women. There are no magic bullets to stop the bite of beauty from turning the male population into a drooling idiot or a walking talking zombie. And until there is women will continue to use their beauty as a weapon on the opposite sex. Sorry guys!
