postheadericon Pro Makeup Tips – Kara Yoshimoto Bua

We will always flip for the latest beauty styles (we’re currently giving Amy Winehouse a run for her money as we try to perfect fall’s cat-eye liner), but despite getting our heads turned by trends, we’re still suckers for perfectly pretty, natural makeup. When we spotted Jessica Biel at the MTV Movie Awards, we were immediately gaga for her low-fuss look. Biel’s glowing skin, pinky-nude lip, and flirty eye makeup was the perfect combo of fresh and polished and we had to know how to get this look ourselves. We got on the horn with Biel’s longtime makeup artist, Kara Yoshimoto Bua, who patiently walked us through the process, step by step.

“We were just going for a simple, easy look for the MTV Movie Awards,” Bua said. “She’s naturally gorgeous, so I just wanted to enhance this with a shimmery eye to give her an approachable and sexy look.” Bua likes to prep a client’s face by first applying Chanel’s Sublimage Eye Essential Regenerating Eye Cream. “It’s fragrance-free and gives the skin smooth moisture,” she says.

For this look, Bua began by using a neutral brown, crème pencil (in this case, Chanel’s Le Crayon Yeux Precision Eye Definer in Coffee Bean) to line Biel’s upper eyelid along the lash line. She created a lightly smoky effect by blending the liner with an angle brush. Bua prefers to not augment the eyelid in any way, say with a base or concealer, as the pencil should sink into the skin and slightly smudge on its own. After finishing the top lid, Bua used what pigment was left on the angle brush to line underneath Biel’s eyes. “You just want a very soft feathering under the eye, so don’t go too heavy on the product and be sure to blend it out for a natural look,” she said.

On Biel’s lids, Bua used Chanel’s limited edition Les Quatre Ombres de Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow in Shimmering Dunes. She loves the silvery-taupe color in the palette (“It would work on anyone!”) and used the shadows mainly on the crease of Biel’s eye. “The shimmer and softness of this quad’s colors makes it easy to create a smoldering eye that doesn’t look heavy,” Bua said. For an additional spark, she finished Biel’s eyes with a sprinkle of Make Up For Ever’s Diamond Powder in White Gold 2 in the center of the lid and the corner of the eyes. It’s easiest to apply this with a soft, round brush spritzed with rose water.

After curling Biel’s lashes, she used Chanel’s Inimitable Mascara Multi-Dimensional in Noir-Brun. “Using brown mascara makes your eyes look open,” Bua said. “It also never looks harsh. I like this mascara because it gives you really long lashes, quickly and without clumps.” For applying mascara to Biel’s lower lashes, Bua used a stiff fan brush, like M.A.C.’s 205 Mascara Fan Brush. Any version of this brush with synthetic fibers works. Just rub the fan on the mascara wand and mainly concentrate on applying product on the outside of the eye (use less close to the inside of the eye, by the nose).

Bua used combination of two foundations on Biel, Pro Lumiere Professional Finish Makeup SPF 15 in Sand and Vitalumiere Satin Smoothing Fluid Makeup SPF 15 in Nude, which she applied with clean hands to the face. She dusted Chanel’s Irreelle Blush in Incognito across the apple of the cheek, orbital bone, as well as lightly touching the top of Biel’s nose, chin, and forehead for a sun-kissed glow. The look was finished with Chanel’s Rouge Hydrabase Crème Lipstick in Moire. (The lipstick looks really dark in the tube and on this layout, but it’s super lightweight and goes on almost like a gloss.) So, there you go, no need to hide behind a hat and Ray Ban sunglasses anymore. Use these tips and get out there ladies!

postheadericon A glance at women’s casual fashion wear

Women’s casual fashion is fast turning into a popular trend. Although the majority of the females chooses to appear just perfect every time they step out of their home, but there are some who choose in dressing down a little in order to be comfortable. It is indeed vital to know that style/fashion requires being sacrificed for comfort. Fashion to be more specific casual fashion can allow a woman in appearing her best and at the same time not being uncomfortable in overly made dresses and high heels. 

The trick is to buy casual attires in the same manner as one would while buying other styles. Build a casual fashion wardrobe that comprises of a range of basics and in different shades. Khaki and denim work perfect for pants. Tops in black, white and red can match most bottoms. Not to forget the shoes as well need to be casual. Sandals and boots as well are a staple item when it comes to women’s casual fashion. 

Accessories also play a vital role. A woman can accessorize her outfit with casual and sporty items. It is obvious that a woman will not desire in complementing her casual wear with a sophisticated and branded bag or a costly gold watch. Rather, it is wise to choose watches and jewelry that are less extravagant  and will go well with the casual fashion. The majority of the females who dress up in such a style often forego belts because it is a symbol to try at being too dressy. Select handbags that are colorful. 

Most importantly, because a woman is dressed casual it does not indicate that she should be sloppy. Always iron the clothes before wearing. Ripped jeans, although are in vogue, but the tears must  be in the ideal places while the trouser must not appear too worn. Rips although are cool, but putting on jeans that is more than a decade old is not a good idea. Besides also keep away from clothes which are too baggy and loose as it will make a woman appear lazy instead of casual. 

On the other hand, if a woman is on the lookout for party dress for the party or formal wear dresses fashion, khakis will be the right pick undoubtedly. There are some workplaces that do not allow employees to wear jeans. Just ensure that the pair of jeans is taken good care of, fit properly and ironed before wear. Tops must not be very revealing, hence spaghetti straps and tank tops will be extremely casual for the workplace. In fact button down shirts on top of a basic T-shirt or Polos are a smart choice. 

Last but not the least, when it comes to business casual shoes, keep away from high heels. Rather, try sandals or simple flats. Too many accessories are likely to be a bit dressier instead of going casual completely and even in the workplace it must not be overdone. A handbag and a belt that is simple enough will suffice. 

So all you females next time you dress up casually keep in mind the aforementioned tips. All the best!!! 

postheadericon Wedding Lingerie: Types and Styles

For every bride to be the one thing that she holds dearest to her is undoubtedly her bridal dress or ball gown especially if it is all frothy and lacy. However the work that goes into having the perfect wedding trousseau doesn’t stop there. Wedding lingerie forms an integral part of the plethora of bridal fineries that makes a complete trousseau.

Now, it might seem an easy task to accomplish with all those countless choices like sexy, open cup or open bust  available at your local lingerie stores. Again, you don’t have to scream Victoria’s Secret every time you change into any one item of your bridal trousseau. What should you keep in mind that the fit should be perfect without tugging or pulling.

A bride’s range of lingerie consists of not only brassieres and knickers but other bridal wedding lingerie items such as corsets and basques. Let’s read a few lines more about these two items.

  • Corsets – If you want a dramatic look in terms of body shaping then a corset might be the answer for you. The back of the corsets have laces that are flexible enough to tighten the dress when the bride puts it on. The dramatic look is given by the fact that corsets have a stiff frame. Thus, brides can give themselves an illusion of a slimmer waistline especially for full figured brides. Corsets have underwire cups that are built in to give full support and push breasts up, similar to a push up bra. However, corsets can be a bit uncomfortable to brides due to their stiffness. 
  • Bridal Basques – Another common option in terms of wedding lingerie are basques. They come with hooks as well as eye fastening that can be fastens at the back. The technique is similar to a bra. Unlike corsets that are stiffer, basques offer a more gentle shape. Restrictions in terms of movement are lesser so a bride feels more comfortable in a basque.  Not only that, basque are great in terms of supporting and shaping of the breasts unlike corsets that tends to push them up. They are available in many shapes and sizes and at the same time enable different levels of shape and support.

Bustier, brasselette, torsolette and corsolette – These items as wedding lingerie are not mentioned above but the list will be incomplete without mentioning them. A bustier is nothing but a basque at its shortest form. It reaches till the ribcage and thus provides a little support that can be subtle. A braselette is generally not recommended for brides with fuller figures. It comes down till the waist and looks great on petite or slimmer brides. On the other hand, a braselette differs from a torsolette by the fact that it comes down till it reaches the top of the hips. It can be great for overall shape since it gives a nice shaping to the hips, waist and of course chest. The last one is the corsolette that is great for slimmer as well as full figured woman since it provides complete body shape and reaches the hips all the way from the breasts.

Well, our list of wedding lingerie ends here. However, bridal lingerie is not limited to only these. You can have your own trial and error sessions but of course prior to a few days before the wedding at your favorite sexy  lingerie shop near you. Again, it doesn’t have to be as elaborate as these. Who knows, a simple bra might do the trick for you.

postheadericon Which Wrinkle Treatment?

There is more than one type of wrinkle treatment on the market, so which one should you go for? The two main dermal injectables that you are likely to have heard of are BOTOX and Restylane, but although they both combat the signs of ageing, they have little else in common, says Sheridan, who offers beauty treatments in Harley St, London. They function in completely different ways and there are different reasons why you would choose to use one over the other. While BOTOX works by paralyzing the muscles in the face to decrease wrinkling, Restylane operates by smoothing creases in the skin and filling in the fine lines.

What Are the Advantages Of BOTOX?

There aren’t many people who haven’t heard of BOTOX. It is one of the most popular wrinkle treatments in the world and is becoming more common year after year. So, what exactly is BOTOX? Derived from a toxic substance called clostridium botulinum, this protein is injected into the facial muscles, weakening them and reducing wrinkles. Within as short a space of time as a week, fine lines can completely vanish, making it the perfect solution for those who suffer from crow’s feet, laughter lines and forehead wrinkling. There is another benefit too. For those who suffer from excessive sweating (known as hyperhidrosis), BOTOX injections in the armpits can cure the problem and reduce suffering.

What Types of Dermal Fillers Are There?

There are a few different types of dermal filler that are made from a range of substances, however they tend to produce the same effect, namely plumping up of the lips and filling in of the lines on the face. Restylane, along with Juvéderm and Perlane, is one of the most popular dermal fillers and is made from a synthetic copy of a substance usually found in healthy skin, hyaluronic acid. Fillers made using this clear gel are safer than those using collagen as they use a substance found in the human body. Collagen is sometimes derived from cows and is therefore more likely to cause allergic reactions. There are, however, several human derived collagen fillers now on the market, including CosmoPlast (TM) and CosmoDerm (TM). Restylane injections work well on more severe wrinkles and can be used on the lips, unlike BOTOX, because it does not paralyze the muscles. Although the injections can cause puffiness in the face, wrinkles will be filled in rather than decreased like in BOTOX treatments. Radiesse is another effective dermal filler which can produce very long-lasting results of up to 5 years. Because it is made from substances naturally produced in human bones, calcium and phosphate ions, it is very safe, although currently physicians are suggesting that patients try using Restylane as a first option before attempting Radiesse as it is a long-term commitment.

postheadericon Fashion intentions: These sets improve your style immediately!

You envy stylish women for their great outfits and their self-confidence? Then you should regularly say these sentences to yourself.

Proud of myself and my body

To be honest, the perfect body does not exist. Because what seems so immaculate on Instagram and Co. is almost always interplay of favorable pose, flattering light and a few Photoshop click. So do not be blinded by these pictures – they do not reflect reality. Among the Fashion Tips and Advice this is a very important matter now.

That which is real, you are. Take a close look in the mirror: What do you like most? What makes you beautiful and unique? Try to do just that with your styling instead of just masking the supposed problem areas. For example, if you have a nice neckline, emphasize it by wearing a v-neckline. And if you are proud of your legs, show them!

Not going to dictate anything.

“As a blonde you should not wear black, with thick thighs a mini skirt is taboo and jeans on jeans is not”. There are endless styling tips and well-intentioned advice but more important than the opinion from the outside is that you feel comfortable in your clothes.

Stylish women know that and wear their outfits with their heads held high and with a lot of self-confidence. And that makes her so attractive.

  1. I bet on class, instead of on earth.

Women with a great style do not chase after every trend, but choose clothes and accessories wisely.

Quality instead of quantity

Do it the same and do not stuff your closet with bargains, but rather save for some high quality parts. This can be a genuine leather bag, fine shoes or perfectly fitting jeans. Think in advance of how to combine the pieces and buy only clothes that you are sure you will like for a long time. Also make sure that everything fits perfectly. So you avoid bad buys and get a better style.

  1. I also dare something.

It’s tempting and so easy to grab sweaters and jeans every morning. But the fun of fashion remains completely on the track. And that is so important if you want to get a better style.

So try to spice up your look with some refinement. Wear a top in a trendy pop color or wear a blouse with an extravagant cut. You can just wear it to your comfortable everyday jeans – it creates an exciting style.

  1. I often clean my closet.

Behind every stylish woman is a tidy wardrobe because only those who have a good overview of his clothes fundus can create new cool outfits every day.

Take a day off (perfect is a rainy Sunday) and do a thorough wardrobe inventory. Clean up everything and then try out new looks in front of the mirror. Be brave and take pictures of the most beautiful styles. This will give you a better sense of what you have and what you do not.

By the way: Here we reveal you ingenious wardrobe hacks, thanks to which you can easily keep order!

  1. I separate myself from what does not make me happy.

When we’re cleaning up, blow everything out, which will not make you happy. These include the old jeans that you’ve been trying to fit in for four years now (do not use them!), The dress that was expensive, but makes you look pale, or the trend pants in which your legs seem somehow short.

Be critical and ask each part of the famous Guido question: Does the part do something for me? Such a mucking action not only creates space in the closet, but also does really good.

  1. I pay more attention to my clothes.

No matter if a creased blouse, dirty shoes or a fuzzy sweater – we pay too little attention to our clothes. The result: We have to buy new things more often, because unfortunately, lack of care harms our clothes extremely. This becomes particularly clear on leather shoes or bags. If they are not regularly cleaned and treated with leather care, the leather dries out, tears or stains that cannot be removed anymore. That is why it is said after wearing: Clean and do not forget care!

For clothes: Swing more often times the iron and use lint and shaver! Because no matter how expensive blouse or sweater, they have creases or lint, they look directly cheap.

If your dream is to wake up with long, full, dark, and feathery eyelashes — without globbing on three coats of mascara — you’ve probably at least considered mink lashes
