TIP OF THE DAY NO. 66 – NOT TO BE WITHOUT!

TIP NO. 66 – NOT TO BE WITHOUT!

A WHITE BLOUSE – is an absolute must. It is one of the most adaptable garments you can own. It is suitable for any time of day and coordinates well with all colours and styles, and  is the natural partner of suits. It will always be the answer to any emergency or unexpected invitation, and makes any woman look younger.

To avoid being without a white blouse (because it is being washed or dry cleaned), it is a good idea to have two – or more. Since you will wear this is a garment more than others, it will not be a wasteful duplication.

TIP OF THE DAY NO. 65 – TIME FOR NEW SUNGLASSES

TIP NO. 65 – TIME FOR NEW SUNGLASSES

Sunglasses add instant sex appeal and mystery to a woman’s look by hiding her eyes – and they still fulfil their original purpose of protecting the eyes from the sun and glare.

And because sunglasses are an accessory that changes with fashion trends, you should buy a new pair each year – and making matters worth for your budget – don’t buy cheap ones. They lack refinement in styling and finish, and they don’t stand up to wear and tear. The lenses scratch easily and soon they will look like you had them for years.

Now is the time to start looking for the right pair – here are some choices!

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. 38 – PERFUME NOT JUST ON YOUR SKIN

TIP NO. 38 – PERFUME NOT JUST ON YOUR SKIN

The art of making perfume started in Ancient Egypt, and through the ages became  part of a women’s aura. In the France on the court of Louis XIV perfume even substituted for soap and water.

Today we are lucky to have soap, water and perfume. And for most women it is part of their daily beauty routine to spray on their favorite fragrance Lady with perfume– but if you want to extend its allure, put your empty or nearly empty perfume bottles (open) in your lingerie drawers  – and your underwear will smell as good as you.

TIP OF THE DAY NO. 30 – WEARING HIGH-HEELED SHOES

TIP NO. 30WEARING HIGH HEELED- SHOES

As we have heard yesterday ‘high heels’  are very becoming and seductive. But if you have not worn any for a long time – how do you start?

Buy a pair with a small heel.  Maybe 2″ high, and start wearing them around the house. It will give your feet a chance to get used to them – remember only practice makes perfect – and with  time you can wear them when you go out – and with more time – you might work yourself up to this

TIP OF THE DAY NO. 29 – CAN SHOES HELP YOU CATCH A MAN?

TIP NO. 29 CAN SHOES HELP YOU CATCH A MAN?

Marilyn

Marilyn Monroe once said: “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” Not that Marilyn needed the right shoes, even without shoes she could have conquered the world!

But it is true that the most effective way to look feminine and sexy is to wear high-heeled shoes. (Alas, if only someone could combine comfort with spike heels). From my survey, which was published in my book What Turns Men On – 80% said that they preferred and like women who wear high heels. Here is one comment: “High heels make legs appear longer and curvier. They also add height and give a woman’s silhouette a slimmer look. No man ever misses a pair of legs with high-heeled shoes. The style of the shoes doesn’t matter, it’s the heel that counts.

Another said: “I am extremely turned off by women who wear only flat shoes, because I feel that a high-heeled shoe is the trademark of a vibrant, sexy woman.”

Do you have any high-heeled shoes in your closet? If you can’t wear spike heels, maybe you could try a pair like these, with a medium heel?
