TIP OF THE DAY NO. 70 – THINGS TO REMEMBER

TIP NO. 70 – THINGS TO REMEMBER

1. If you wear make-up don’t try on clothes the day you don’t – without make-up the result will not be dependable.

2. When you are tired, it’s better not to wear black. Instead, put a lighter shade next to your face.

3. Prints or designs of any kind need simple, quiet accessories in solid tones.

4. Since long sleeves lead the eyes to your hands, pay attention to your manicure.

5. When wearing white – any garment in white – must be of good quality. A white garment in a cheap fabric will make you look that way.

See you tomorrow

TIP OF THE DAY NO.61 – EYE MAKEUP AND GLASSES

TIP NO. 61 – EYE MAKEUP AND GLASSES

Are you wearing glasses? I do – and I found out that my glasses can either enhance my eyes or not, depending on how well I have applied my eye makeup. 

After applying your eye makeup don’t just get up, put on your glasses and go. Instead before you leave your mirror, put your glasses on and check if everything is in the right place – no mascara on your eyelids; not too much eyeshadow; not a too heavy eye liner  –remember glasses magnify your eyes and show up any little fault.  

But the good news about wearing glasses is that it makes your eyes look bigger and if everything is in the right place, glasses add interest and often make a woman look sexy.

TIP OF THE DAY NO. 52 – THE IMPORTANCE OF EYEBROWS

TIP N0. 52 – THE IMPORTANCE OF EYEBROWS

Many makeup artists believe that it is the major feature in defining your face. And if you think of  famous stars, like Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor   Joan Crawford,  Brooke Shields, you see how true this is. 

What do your eyebrows do for your face?

You can change their shape by tweezing, waxing, and threading. You can change their color. You can even have hair implants to make them thicker. But whatever you do have a professional advise you  – most Nail Salons do it – and then there are salons which specialize in shaping eyebrows, and you can find them on-line.

It is worth a try – you will be surprised by the (positive) change.

TIP OF THE DAY NO. 51 – A TAN IN A TUBE

TIP NO. 51 –  A TAN IN A TUBE

Beach time is a few months away – so if you are sick of looking at your winter white skin, there is help. No, I am not suggesting a visit to  a Tanning Salon – they are more expensive than my solution, and there has been some controversy about how safe a tanning bed is for the skin.

So what other alternative is there without the sunSelf Tanning Lotions! I have tried  a few different brands and found “Jergens natural Glow” to be the  best. It comes in Fair to Medium and Medium to Tan. It is also a moisturizer, and after applying if for 3 days your skin has a golden glow – to keep your tan, use it once or twice a week.

I know I sound like a commercial for Jergens, but honestly, after trying many products I find it to be the best – it is easy to use, and I like the colour it gives my skin. And best of all it only cost $12.99 and can be found in most Drug Stores.

See you tomorrow

TIP OF THE DAY NO. 39 – LOOKING GOOD TAKES TIME

TIP NO. 39 – LOOKING GOOD TAKES TIME

The other day I was watching a model being interviewed on TV. She was asked, “What do you do to always look so glamorous?” Her answer was, “I don’t always look glamorous. It takes a lot of work and time, not to speak of the airbrushing that is done on my photos.  I would like young girls to realize that models don’t look in reality as we appear in the magazines –  knowing this would help them feel less inadequate because they don’t look like the girl in Vogue.”

Most of us don’t look like the girl in Vogue, but if we take a little time for ourselves, we will look better. For example:

– if you ever wonder should I wash your hair today?’ – yes, you should  – you will look better for it

putting on some make-up (even if you are at home) will make you feel better

having a manicure will give you prettier hands

a face mask once a week will give you better skin

an extra hour of sleep or just relaxing a moment here and there will do more for your complexion than the most expensive cream

an hour of exercise once or twice a week – or just going for a walk – will make you feel more alive

If your excuse is ‘I don’t have the time’ remember in order to take care of everything and everybody in your life, you have to include yourself – take  care of yourself, spend some time with yourself and on yourself – you will feel and look better!

POST OF THE DAY no. 24 – MIRROR MIRROR ON THE……………….

TIP NO. 24 MIRROR MIRROR  ON THE WALL……..   silver mirrior

WHO’S THE FAIREST ONE OF ALL?

If you want to be the fairest one of all your make-up must be well applied. To be absolute sure, take a hand mirror and go to a window where you can see your face by daylight. You might put your make-up on in the bathroom, or somewhere where the light is not so good, making  it difficult to get the whole picture.

So tomorrow morning when you have applied your make-up, take a mirror and try it. You might be surprised that your eye shadow is a little to heavy, or that your powder is too much, showing up any wrinkles, or that your lipstick is too red.

It won’t take long to adjust it, but you will then be sure that you are the fairest one of all. Have a good day!

See you tomorrow

TIP OF THE DAY – NO. 20 LOOKING GOOD AND DRESSING WELL

But by 11 am., even though we have done some work, we don’t feel so good. It is our subconscious telling us that we don’t  look as good as we did when we went out to work, and it is telling us so by making us feel uncomfortable. And when passing a mirror it gets even worse, looking at ourselves we might wonder -Who is that? And then with a deep sigh, our not so coiffed hair, or too large top is dismissed with – well nobody sees me anyway. You should stop and ask,” What do you mean? Am I nobody?”

Oh, I am not just preaching, I have been there and when one day, not by 11 am but by 2 pm I felt so bad that I thought I was sick. I took a shower, washed my hair, and put on a nice pair of pants with a fresh white blouse — I did not feel sick anymore, I felt well and alive. Since then I get dressed every morning, and even put on some make-up.

I don’t mean you have to wear your black suit around the house, but your jeans can be replaced by the slacks you have hanging in your closet. And you have other tops besides t-shirts and sweats. Of, course if you can’t miss the comfort of your sweats; buy nice ones, maybe a top with a zip in front, or a sweat or warm –up suit that matches.

My grandmother, who I admired for her down to earth wisdom, was always dressed and combed early in the morning. She used to say, “You never know who will be knocking at the door, and you don’t want to be embarrassed about how you look.”  You don’t either!
