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!
