Get Rid of Dark Circles Under Your Eyes

Say Good Bye to Unsightly Dark Under Eye Circles

If you are suffering from dark under eye circles, it is obvious you want to get rid of them. Like me, you may tried everything from lemon juice on cotton swabs, skin toners, cucumbers under the eyes and the list goes on.

I know I have been there. I have to admit some of these worked for a short time but unfortunately they always seem to come back. I have tried various brands of makeup to cover up my circles and it always looks great for the first two hours of the day, but then low and behold when the clock strikes 12 - it is a racoon dark circle night mare all over again.

I needed a product that would cover the circle and last a long time. I also needed a product that would not go on caky and smear or smudge as many concealer products tend to do. I have tried the liquid concealer and creams and still never had any success until I came upon the True Moisture Concealer by Santee Makeup. Not only did it moisturize my skin, but it covered my circles and lasted all day without the need for touch up. I give the product a 10 out of 10 any day of the week.

If you are light skinned or dark skinned, there is a color for every skin tone under the sun and the best thing about this product is you can also mix the shades to come up with some pretty amazing colors. So again, if you want to know the best concealer for dark under eye circles, this is it. It may not be a cure but is a great solution for those days you just don't want to leave the house.

Keep your skin fresh this Winter

Don’t Lose the Glow as the Temperature Goes Down!

We can go on and on about how much we love winters, right? One doesn’t have to face the scorching heat of the sun, and there’s no skin tanning too! But, the skin does get dry during the winters and this becomes the issue of concern for most of the beautiful ladies out there! You need to become extra careful about your skin during winters to retain that wonderful glow on your face and body.

To retain that smoothness on your skin, don’t forget to use a moisturizing lotion right after the shower. Apply a good moisturizing body lotion to save yourself from the embarrassment of a white stretched out dry skin. We know that everyone loves having hot water showers during winters, but these can leave your skin dry and rough. You must avoid hot water and go for lukewarm water instead. It will leave your skin soft and supple.

Acrylic Nails - Are they Safe?

If you love going to the nail salon to get your nails done, you are not alone. Millions of women go out daily and weekly for a manicure and pedicure as a way to pamper and beautify their hands and feet. 

I like to get my nails done with acrylic or gel, especially in the summer time. I can't speak for everyone else out there but I have noticed that doing my nails too often severely damages my real nails underneath which causes me to wonder just how healthy the process really is.

One time I ended up with yellowing on my nail beds that turned into an infection. I didn't know this until I went to go in for my fill and when the nail tech started to file my nails I screamed. They felt like they were on fire!
I literally had to go home and come back two weeks later when they were healed. When I came back the tech explained that I should wear gloves when I wash the dishes at home because the water seeps under the fake nail and germs and fungus can develop!

That made me really think about this process. I don't even know what the side effects are from these chemicals and whether or not it was leaking into my blood stream.  I freaked out and took a break for a few months and started to let my own nails grow.

Growing my own nails was never the problem. I am a born nail biter and doing the acrylic kept my fingers out of my mouth. I could not stand looking at my chewed up finger nails, so short and boring and eventually gave in.

For most of us, beauty always wins. I gave in and started doing my nails again.I have to admit that I truly believe there is nothing nicer than a pair of nicely manicured nails with bright tips or polish. It's a girly thing and it makes me feel like a princess.

I learned painfully from my nail infection and it gave me the rude awakening that I truly needed. As the saying goes..."Too much of anything is never good for you" This is so true. I was going to get my nails filled for so long I forgot what my own nails looked like!

If you are on  ladies who are addicted to the nails, try giving it a break for a month or so in between fills and let your nails heal and grow naturally free from the acrylic and the gel products.

I have been doing that lately and have managed to let my own nails grow out. They look healthy and my hands still look great to. My general rule of thumb now is to do them every once in awhile and take a break. I have even started paying the extra money and rather than going for just a fill, I have them take the entire tips off and start from scratch. That way I am sure they can grind off any fungi that could be hiding under there and put on a fresh set. It's much safer that way. Unless you have a microscope, you don't have a clue what can be going on under there so it's best to play it safe.

You can be beautiful but beautiful and healthy is better. If you absolutely can not imagine life without a set of manicured nails, then I urge you try learning how to do your nails yourself at home. This way you can monitor each finger and fix it as needed to prevent infection.

Acrylic isn't always the way to go. There are gel nails that are supposed to be safer and there are also at home kits with just regular  nail polish where you can add designs to make your nails look like a professional did them at a salon.

You can purchase many of these "at home nail kits" online to do your own nails at your leisure. You can choose from traditional colored nail sets or do it yourself french manicure sets that look like you stepped out of a nail salon!

Play it smart and tone down on the nails in the fall and winter months and then head back to the salon for spring and summer. In the long run, it gives your hands a break, helps you save money and most important of all, it's the healthier way to go!

How to Get Longer, Fuller, Brighter Lashes

I have very short eyelashes and it did not matter what I did, I could never find a mascara that made my eyelashes look long or full.

Five years ago, I found and fell in love with the Maybelline Thick Lash Mascara in the darkest black color that came in the red and black casing.

Sometime last year they changed the look of the bottle and the wand and it never seemed to work the same for me. It's been a year now and I haven't been able to find anything at all that gave me any definition to my eyes. 

I went to Walmart last week and tried out the new
Eye lights Bright Mascara by Cover Girl and was pleasantly surprised. It made my eyes stand out but they were still not long or thick. I decided to get creative and I first put on a layer of Lengthening Mascara and then a layer of the Eye Lights Mascara and voila! I am back in business and love my new long lashes so much, I haven't even worn lipstick or eyeshadow all week. My eyes pop and I love it!Get long lashes that are not only thick but bold also.

Benefits of Makeup Remover

Makeup remover is one of those products a lot of people don't use and never considered to use because they just don't know what it is. I to have to admit, that I have been experimenting with makeup here and there over the last 20 years and have probably used every skin cleanser, toner, or soap every used to wash my makeup face but not a make up remover!

To me, I didn't really know what it was or that it existed. When friends would tell me about it, I thought they were just using soap or plain water. Well I was wrong. Just the other night I slept over at a friends and I was curious to see her nightly beauty routine.

She took a warm wash cloth and squeezed the makeup remover on it and smoothed it all over her face. She did this two times. Then she took  the same cloth and ran it under cold water and patted it all over her face to close her pores. It was amazing. Her face looked like a different shade! I asked her what she was using and it was makeup remover.

The makeup remover double cleans to remove the makeup from your face not leaving any residue behind. Then you are free to use a toner or just go to bed as is. She didn't even need to put a night cream on as the makeup remover also moisturizes the skin.

I tried it to and I liked it and my face did feel a whole lot cleaner. It really does make sense after all to use makeup remover. Wearing makeup for an 8 hour work day at the office is long enough and it's nice to go natural every once in awhile. Only, once in awhile that is...Can't live without my makeup. Love it!!!

How to Become A Model

Many people dream of having a modeling career- livings as a high profile symbol of beauty and enjoying a life of excitement, fame and luxury while earning a great deal of money.

If you are one of those seeking out this career, there is one thing that you should never forget-behind the glamor, glitz and high income lies the reality that this field is challenging, highly competitive and relatively restrictive with regards to acceptable physical characteristics even though this is slowly changing.

In the not too distant past, only a narrow range of people were deemed model quality, which meant being tall, thin and angular, presenting body types and images of beauty attainable by only a narrow segment of the populace. For those considering modeling, today's industry portrays a much wider diversity of body types and widening standards of what is considered beautiful opening doors to people who would have never had a chance in this career years ago.

Healthy Appearance, Features and Symmetry

Regardless of your body type and modeling aspirations, there are certain characteristics all models should bring to the table. Perhaps the most important is being healthy or giving the appearance of health. Height, weight, complexion and hair quality, head to toe body symmetry and other subtle subjective features are taken into consideration.

Types of Modeling

Catwalks Models are perhaps the highest profile models, displaying fashions while strutting along catwalks in high heels amongst the glare of flashing cameras. Body types most successful in this category are tall (over 5"8),thin and small to moderate breast sizes.Glamorous and lucrative as field, it is also very grueling and demanding.

Underwear models can be of varying sizes, yet generally tend to have larger breasts and slender hips. However, more and more plus sized people are being seen in today's fashion magazines, so don't be discouraged if you are not stick-thin and small breasted.

Plus sized models reflect the growing number of curvaceous and fuller bodied people who have been made to feel less than beautiful in the full range of desired traits, don't give up on your modeling career dreams. There is a robust field of modeling involving body parts, hands, feet, and hair as well as other body features such as eyes, ears, etc.

Head Shots, Body Shots and Comp Cards

Agencies will insist you provide them with pictures of yourself in order for them to judge your modeling potential for the truth is, the camera does not favor everyone, and the camera doesn't lie. Depending on your body type and photogenic characteristics, the camera can actually add weight to your appearance. Head shots and composition cards which are a collection of different shots on one page, are also required at auditions and should always be near at hand in case they are requested. Recommendation: invest in a professional photographer and shun snap shots, even if agencies say snap shots are acceptable. Generally, one good booking will more than pay for the cost of a professional shoot and head shot printing.

So what else can you do? Research reputable modeling agencies. The key word here is reputable. There are many businesses advertising as modeling agencies that are in truth nothing more than scams seeking income streams from the uninformed via offers of expensive, never ending modeling classes and other too good to be true promises. Reputable agencies never charge you a fee for representation, their income comes from you booking you - wherein they withdraw anywhere from a 7-15 percent fee. If you want to take classes, ask your agency where to take proven classes.

Be professional. Whether the project is large or small in scale, if you are wanted for an audition or are booked both client and agency have invested time and money in you and expect you to perform. This means always being punctual, arriving prepared if there is no makeup artist involved, knowing your lines and not causing problems. Perhaps the most important trait you possess other than physical characteristics is your reputation which once damaged can almost never be prepared.

These five areas of consideration will help you better define your modeling aspiration and provide guidance in realization of your modeling career goals. There is a lot of information we have not covered here, so please do more research before entering this career or any other.

Dreaming of being a model? Go for it. Contemporary models reflect a range of sizes, heights, skin and hair colors and there is every expectation that diversity in the modeling field will continue expanding. Therefore never fret, that you aren't that thin super model type; with hard work, determination and a bit of luck, you never know how far you can go in your dream of being a model.

Colored Contacts for More Beautiful Eyes

No-matter your current color—brown, blue or green—colored contact lenses are an easy and affordable method of changing one’s personal image and is a practice enjoyed on a daily basis by people from all walks of life.

Contact lenses, composed of soft, oxygen-permeable polymers, are worn on the cornea and used for corrective and cosmetic purposes, the latter being the focus of this article. If you’re curious about using colored contacts, here are a few basic facts. Three tints form the basis of colored contacts: visibility, enhancement and opaque color. Visibility tints are generally a subtle blue or green hue designed to aid the user in inserting, removing or otherwise locating the lens.

Deciding the proper color depends upon your objectives. If you have light skin and light eye color, a warm-toned hue might be most effective. If you have dark or brown skin, colors such as gray, hazel and violet are good options. If you are not sure, always ask the opinion of someone you trust or take a few photos of yourself to get a realistic perception of what colors look best on you before committing to one color or another.

Non prescription colored contacts are the way to go for people wanting to change their looks. You can
buy contacts online without prescription at affordable prices. Click the link below to shop for colored contact lenses. We offer better than ever prices and a free carrying case and instructions is available with each purchase. Enjoy your new look!
