STEP 4 –concealer: I suggest you use the  Perfecting stick concealer Long Lasting by Shiseido. It contains a high amount of pigment, from where I stand it’s a lucky formula that is efficient in camouflaging discoloration, unevenness, spots and other flaws. It has a prominent creamy consistency but does not generate that greasy look we all hate so much, moreover it blends seamlessly into the skin. If the skin under your eyes is very dry-you need to hydrate it very well before applying the concealer. And more: if you have visible wrinkles under your eyes-the greasy effect might occur, so you should use this concealer on your face,  while those who have relatively smooth skin under their eyes can  apply it on that area as well.

What is true of fashion generally and of sunglasses specifically is that whatever looks best on you is what you should wear this season. If something is trending right now but it doesn’t feel or look right on you, forget about it. However, there are certain styles of shades that the designers have opted for on the S 2018 runways. Now, you will notice that some of these trends are not meant to protect your eyes against sunlight and will only serve for aesthetic purposes. Still, some researchers say that sunlight is actually beneficial to the eyes and it’s only a matter of whether the sun rays disturb your comfort or not. So, with all of that in mind, let’s take a look at what’s trending right now in the shades department: Continue Reading

Faded, dull skin always makes a woman look older than her actual age. On the other hand, bright and glowing skin will always get you looking much younger. The problem is that every day of our lives, pollution, grime and dust attach themselves to the surface of our skin. If we don’t take a couple minutes daily to cleanse our face and unclog the pores, the skin may look sluggish – instead of at its bright and shining best. Cleaning the skin is important, just like keeping our internal organs clean and healthy is. Please be aware that skin damage doesn’t always involve pain or immediate visible change, and can often go unnoticed for some time. The good news is, skin damage caused over time is reversible and the cumulative actions you begin taking today can also improve the appearance of your skin slowly over time. So get started today doing these simple things. Continue Reading

Coco Chanel once discovered that the sexiest in a woman is the man inside her (no, not that you naughty kids!). It’s the Yin and Yang within, the opposites that are complimentary and it is actually the masculine which emphasizes the feminine in a woman. So, Coco’s fashion was often times inspired from what men around her wore, and such is the case of the now legendary tweed jacket. Continue Reading

Why I don’t’ use botox and dermafillers? Botos is a toxic material. It lead to issues with the nervous system and the blood stream. One of the major side effects of botox is causing the facial muscles to get weak because muscles are being paralyzed by the botox injection therefore there is a lack of motion in the facial muscles. When there is no activity of facial muscles the skin droops. I want movement in my muscles, I want to be able to build these muscles. When it comes to dermafillers, it’s not that dangerous. The dermafiller contains hyaluronic acid, which is a substance naturally present in the human body. It is found in the highest concentration in fluids in the eyes and joints. In fact, hyaluronic acid has been promoted as a “fountain of youth”. Hyaluronic acid works by acting as a cushion and lubricant in the joints and other tissues. In addition to that, it might affect the way the body responds to injury. There are no severe adverse effects of hyaluronic acid identified yet. Continue Reading

Velvet was once royal and it hasn’t forgotten about that. Even though the industrial revolution has made velvet affordable to the masses, it still remains a fabric that stands out from the crowd. Gordon Richardson, creative director of Topman, explains the fabric’s appeal: “Velvet is one of those perennial classics that are faintly nostalgic, reminiscent of simpler, noble times,” he says. “And it is particularly good at taking on colour due to its sumptuous depth of pile.” And indeed, some of the richest colors can be produced when dying velvet. Although velvet is a lavish fabric, you can easily wear an all-velvet outfit and still not look as if you’re exhibiting this year’s high-end upholstery fabrics. “There is an overriding sex appeal to velvet,” says Tony Glenville, creative director at London College of Fashion.
