Makeup, fashion, and me.

With 2010 coming you want to look fresh and ready for a new start. So say goodbye to last years smoky eyes and orange lips, and get ready for the new looks of the future!

Strong brows.

This picture shows strong brows perfectly, and it even shows metallic eyes too!

Over plucked brows are just so blah! The look now? Think and framing.  To get perfect brows take a pencil and line it up with were your eyes stop, that is were your brow should end. Then look straight forward and line a pencil up to the end of your pupil, that is were your brow should curve. After that just fade out to a tip. Always remember to only pick stray hairs on the bottom of your brow, never the top.

Metallic eyes.

You don't have to make your metallic eyes this crazy to have them be fabulous.

The cutest new look for eyes right now is all in the metal. If you have darker skin choose a  deep gold or copper, but if you have a lighter skin tone go for silver or light  gold. One look that I like to use is a light silver on my lids and a deep gold on my crease. It makes my eyes pop!

Plum lips.

Plum lips are just oh so glamorous!

Say goodbye to boring nude and pink lips, because plum is the new thing. It’s so surprising and flattering that it will turn heads (don’t worry, I mean in a good way!). If your afraid to try it out wear it to a party first. After you see everyone’s reactions you can decide if you want to wear your purple lipstick again, or not.

Bronzed cheeks.

Rihanna looks healthy, and beautiful with her bronzed cheeks.

Bronzed, sun-kissed cheeks are all the rage with winter. Choose a shimmery one 2 shades darker then your natural skin tone to keep from looking like a clown. To apply it right sweep it up from the side of your nose up to the sides of your cheek bones.

So look absolutely stunning this new year, with these fabulous new looks.

Want beautiful, clear, soft, subtle skin? Try an at home facial steam!

be carefull not to get too close, 8 inches is how far your face should be from the steam.

  1. Get a bowl of steaming hot water from the tap.
  2. Squeeze in a couple drops of lemon juice.
  3. Place a towl over your head to catch the steam.
  4. Let the steam do it’s work fro 10 minutes.
  5. Wash your face and then splash it with cold water.

Facial steams are good because they open up your pours. When your pours are opened up all the dirt and oil that cuases pimples and blackheads can come out easier, and so when you wash your face after the steam, your really just washing away all the impurites in your skin. And the lemon you put in? That helps to get rid of scars and erase blackheads. The only problem with these steams is that becuase they open your pours so much they can be very drying, so only do one once every 1 or 2 weeks.

So get a beautifully clear skin with a facial steam!

Ahhhhhhh, the holidays.  Candy, cookies, parties, and fabulous hair do’s. But sometimes fabulous hair do’s can be hard to pull off. I mean have you ever spent an hour on some fancy braided hair do only to find that it’s completely not right? I have. So here’s a simple hair do, that is still graceful, without being crazy.

  1. Make a part down the center of your head, then take 1 small section of hair from each side.
  2. Twist the sections of hair together.
  3. Now take a  smaller section of hair from 1 side and wrap that around the twisted “rope” of hair you have.
  4. Take another small section from the other side of your hair and wrap it aroung the “rope”.
  5. Secure with an elastic arounf the middle of the rope, so you can see the twisted strands.

So be graceful and not go crazy, with this easy holiday hairstyle.

Lash curlers can be a real hassle. They can cost tons of money (seriously, who needs a gold plaited lash curler!?), and have you ever

Who knew that by just changing the way you applied mascara could leave you with wonderfully curled lashes.

piched your eyelid skin by accident? Not fun! And I’m sure we’ve all heard the “hot spoon against your lashes trick”, but ig ou guys are as clusmy as me, you probably don’t want to be pointing a hot spoon at your eye! Talk about an embarrising trip to the emergencey room. Plus has that tip even worked for any of you? But I have a new little tip that won’ possibly lead to you stabbing yourself in the eye, and works!

Try applying your mascara a little differently-

  1. Take the mascara brush and place it at the base of your lashes.
  2. Wiggle it a little, this will coat and reach every lash.
  3. Now twirl the brush upwards, spinning it as you go.
  4. Next, well there is not next, your done!

See wasn’t that easy? And mosly risk free? So live saftely, and with curled lashes, by just applying your mascara slightly differently.

Winter means dry. Dry skin, and worst of all, dry hair. Nothing can ruin a pretty day more then dry, brittle hair. And those fancy

olive oil and egg yolk hair mask

An olive oil and egg yolk hair mask makes hair shiny, soft, and helps to get rid of frizz.

salon brands? They cost all the money you’ve been saving up for gifts! But with all the dances, and parties, you neeed soft, touchable locks. But how? Just take a look inside your kitchen…

For a hair mask that works, you need an olive oil and egg yolk hair mask.

  1. Take a bottle of extra virgin olive oil, and pour 1 cup.
  2. Crack open an egg, and seperate the egg whites from the egg yolk.
  3. Whip the egg yolk with a fork, or any other utensil of your choice.
  4. Mix the egg yolk and olive oil well.
  5. Heat it up in the micro wave for 10 seconds.
  6. Apply to the scalp and work down to the ends. Apply extra on the ends because they tend to be the driest and most brittle part of your hair.
  7. Leave on for 30 minutes to an hour.
  8. Wash off thoroughly with a moisterizing shampoo.
  9. Blow dry, towl dry, or air dry, and feel the amazing softness.

So get great, soft, party ready hair, all with the ingrdients you have in your kitchen!

I hate when I  get a pimple, it’s one of the most annoying, confidence-busting things in the world. It makes me

Fake beautiful skin with foundation and concealer.

self conscious and instantly brings me down. What makes it worse is that I can’t figure out how to hide the little sucker, well, not until now.

Here are the easy steps

  1. Wash your face with warm water, not hot, that will only irritate the pimple.
  2. Rub heated extra virgin olive oil in to your skin for a few minutes
  3. Wash off the extra virgin olive oil and dab (not scrub!) your face dry with a clean towl or paper towl.
  4. Next take some oil free moisteriser and apply it ont the blemish.
  5. Cover the blemish in oil free foundation.
  6. After apply concealer with a pointed brush. If you don’t have one apply with a clean finger tip.
  7. Keep applying foundation and concealer until the blemish is covered. Remember, try not to over apply, chances are no one else notices except for you.

So if you don’t have beautiful clear skin, fake it with a little foundation.

Feeling like you need a pretty boost? Well I have a tip that makes your lips bigger and your eyes bigger in under 10 seconds

Just some eyeshadow here and there, and bam, you could be a model!

Just take out some gold or white eyeshadow (depending on your skin tone, if your lighter skinned go for white eyeshadow, if your skin is darker go for gold), and pat a little on your cupids bow (that part of your top lip that dips down) and the inner corners of each eye, so its touching the sides of your nose. Gasp, when did a supermodel get here! 😉
