Dark Circles

6 Jan

Shadows under your eyes can be the result of several factors: allergies, irritation, dehydration, fatigue, nasal congestion, sun exposure, or thinning skin. The skin under the eyes is already thin to begin with (about half a millimeter thick), so the veins below the surface can show through and create a blue cast. If you have deep-set eyes or very fair skin, the effect is even more pronounced. If you have a dark skin tone, the pigment can also collect under your eyes to create circles.

To address pigmentation issues, look for an eye cream containing licorice and hyaluronic acid. Studies show that these ingredients reduce dark circles after six weeks of use. Retinols may help those with thinning skin.

For a quick home remedy, soak cotton balls in cold soy milk. The coolness and the anti-inflammatory properties of soy can help reduce irritation and puffiness. Also, try adding a pillow at night. Elevating your head during sleep can help prevent fluids from collecting under your eyes.

You can also cover up the problem with concealer. Look for a product that’s a shade lighter than your foundation and with a creamy, thicker consistency. Apply the concealer in light, feathery strokes using a makeup sponge or a flat makeup brush.

The Way We Are

4 Jan

We look through the glossy pages of the top fashion and style magazines.  The celebrities and models are gorgeous.  We tell ourselves that if we looked like that we would have a fabulous life.  If we were thinner, prettier, if our butt wasn’t so big (or so small), if we had hair like that, if our skin were that clear. But have you thought about what goes into making those models and celebrities “Models and Celebrities” ?  We sometimes get a glimpse of the real side of their lives. Looks are not everything – yes we hear that all the time, but it really isn’t.  Here are some looks at our beauties as they really are. I want the lighting, the wind machine, the professional make up artist, the person that does the air brushing, I want them in my home every morning when I wake up. But since that isn’t the real world, I’ll take my mousey brown hair, my sparse eyebrows, my ruddy check color and my little-to-large breasts into my own bathroom and make the most of what I have.  We may not be a dream girl, but I guarantee you that we are the dream of someone that loves us just the way we are.

The Weird, The Funky, The Unusual – Part Deux

Picture Perfect

26 Dec

New Year’s Eve is right around the corner and with that comes the taking of the photos.  Don’t be intimidated, you don’t have to look perfect to take a perfect picture. Here are a few tips to help make solving photo issues a snap.

Less Posing – If your mind is focused on something other than the photo, you’ll appear less rigid. Never keep your hands right by your sides, clasp them in the front or in the back, or hold on to a glass or your eyeglasses to help relax your body.

Fake Flawless Skin – Get as much light on your face as possible. Use a flash inside and outside because the light of the flash will bounce off the skin, illuminate it, and conceal facial imperfections.

Lose the Double Chin -Project your chin out an inch or so more than you normally would. You may feel a bit awkward, like a giraffe, but you’ll have a long, thin neck in the photo.

Keep Your Eyes Open – Close your eyes and have the photographer count to three. On three, open them. Works every time.

Lose the Deer-in-the-Headlights Look -Don’t look straight into the lens. Focus your eyes just above the lens instead of staring directly into the camera.

Using any or all of the tips will ensure this year’s photos are picture perfect !
