Summer Beauty Guide

Summer Beauty Guide

Ahhh…summer 2011 is in full swing and there are so many fabulous looks to choose from! This summer it’s all about dresses (definitely long, flowy maxi-dresses), sexy jumpsuits and rompers, dressy shorts, gold and silver sequence tops (and dresses), long and big earrings, embellished sandals, strappy platform heels, chucky and sexy sunglasses and definitely a huge trend right now…unique color nail polishes! (I’m loving blue, opaque pink, and definitely yellow.)

For makeup, depending on the time of day, you can choose from neutrals, corals, oranges, pinks (definitely hot pink), reds, pastels, and dare we not forget purple!

The statement lip is really huge this summer, so go for amazing colors and lip liners that you can use to color or fill-in your entire lip. You can wear them alone or with lip gloss. You’ll be amazed at how long they stay on your lips…even after eating!

Another “haute” summer trend for lips is hot pink. If you have pale skin (or have a cool undertone), hot pink lips can be a fabulous way to make a bold statement. If you have warm undertones, go for a nice red for the same bold and fabulous effect. You can wear just this lip color alone or with clear lip gloss over the top to turn up the volume and add some shine and sexiness.

On your lids, gold and bronze is super hot if you have warm undertones. Wear these colors alone and mix and blend other colors for a more defined application. If you’re cool, go for silver, which looks and works best on you. You can also wear this alone or blend in colors for a more dramatic eye application.

Another trend for eyes are soft pastel eye shadows. Pastel eyes are huge during the day, but if you want to be different or for nighttime, smoke out the outer corners with a little dark colored shadow, like black, dark purple or deep browns. You can take it even further by mixing all pastels and lining both the upper and lower lash lines for a soft look, but extreme definition, which is needed when using pastels. (Don’t forget about your brows – be sure to use brow powder to highlight and define them.)

Beauty Guide

Beauty Guide

Some women are classic beauties – or look like they are. Audrey Hepburn and Jacqueline Onassis had a way of keeping everyone’s eyes on them by exuding an attitude of self-confidence. That’s the first sign of a classic beauty.

A classic beauty wears timeless clothes, but is savvy enough to update with smart accessories. Anyone can wear a little black dress. Audrey Hepburn stood out in hers by adding a colorful scarf. A good beauty guide is to keep make-up to a minimum. A little foundation and lip gloss call attention to the face, not the make-up. A classic woman has hair with shine and a basic cut. She is not someone who preens for hours. In addition, her hair color is natural-looking.

A beautiful woman dresses appropriately. A pretty dress for the evening. Well-fitting jeans to the mall on weekends. She wears underwear, but the specifics stay between her and her closet. A lovely woman wouldn’t reveal her undies any more than she would reveal a secret.

Classic women show their intelligence. They are a pleasure and a challenge to be around. Even if their beauty is flawed, it goes unnoticed because they invariably have something interesting to say. A true beauty guide starts in the mind.

Classic beauties strive for a nice body, but it’s never an obsession. The pencil-thin Hollywood look is not for them. And no classic beauty would be caught with breast implants. She has too much pride in herself to adhere to someone else’s standards. She has her own, unique beauty guide. If something needs fixing, she fixes it and forgets about it.

There is one special secret to beauty that works for every woman. Less is more. No one looks good with heaps of make-up hiding the face beneath.

For healthy-looking skin, exfoliate regularly for a natural, healthy glow. Moisturizing that fresh skin twice a day will keep it soft and dewy. Before leaving the house, add a bit of peach or pink blush and blend it well for a natural look.

A dab of neutral color, such as brown, can make eyes sparkle. It is best to stay over from bright blues or greens. No one looks good with those colors on their face. A thin eyeliner can bring out the eyes. A heavy liner makes the wearer look tired.

Very few women can carry off dark lipstick. A pink or coral shade looks natural and adds a more youthful appearance.

A classic beauty remembers the basics. Hair and body are freshly washed. Nails are trimmed and clean. Clothes are laundered. The grunge look is not beautiful.

A lifestyle of healthy food and moderate exercise can do more for a woman’s looks than the most expensive make-up in the world.

Keep in mind that character shines through. A smile lights up a face and makes people want to move closer. It’s an instant people-magnet. Have a positive attitude. Anyone can criticize. A beautiful woman knows how to compliment.

Hair And Beauty Guide

Hair And Beauty Guide

Hair and beauty are intrinsically connected. If you have a gorgeous head of hair it can cover a multitude of other sins and it can also make you feel like a million dollars. There is nothing sexier than lovely, lustrous locks on a woman’s shoulders, and eyes are drawn to such a figure like moths to a flame.

If your hair is lanky and lifeless there may be a few factors that are contributing to this. Firstly, you may be unwell or at least very rundown and fatigued. They say that hair is a good indicator as to your well being and if it looks ragged and limp it may be that you need to either change your lifestyle to a more healthy one, or take your foot off the gas and get your energy levels up to speed.

It could also be that you are using the wrong type of shampoo or conditioner for your hair type. You must find a type that suits you. For instance, if your hair is quite thin and it becomes greasy very quickly you need to shampoo your hair regularly to keep it looking good, and so you want to use a mild shampoo that does not take the natural goodness from your hair due to over use. Use shampoo and conditioner for your type of hair, whether it is thick, thin, greasy, wavy, shiny etc

Hair and beauty do go hand in hand, and you should pick a hair style that suits your face. For example, an elfin looking lady often suits a quite short haircut, whereas a lady with longish features will probably look good with long hair.
