Finding your personal style:

Colors fall into two categories: Warm and Cool.
Pick one that suits your skin best and stick with it!!!! Don't jump too much all over the place. Colors are part of your personal style
When you pick a category, choose a few of the colors within in and make them your staple colors. think about the colors you get complimented most on and keep it in mind when you go shopping.

Cool Colors

culled from the internet:

WHAT IS REALLY ATTRACTIVE TO MEN:
–full skirts and tiny waists


–clothes that are in fashion, but not avant-garde (over the top/ couture etc); men follow the fashion trends more than you may realize, and even the Wall Street Journal prints articles about fashion.

–almost any shade of blue; white; very pale and very dark grey; certain men hate to see their wives in black; others adore it.

–perfume- but modern men appreciate lighter perfumes than their fathers did, subtle sophisticated blends rather than the simpler scents.

–collars on suits and coats. (if you don't have a collar on your coat, wear a nice scarf)



WHAT MEN THINK THEY LIKE:
(but only in the movies)
–revealingly tight skirts and aggressively pointed bosom
(doesn't need a pic. you get the idea)

–false eyelashes

–musky, oriental scents. [yuk!]


–spike heels.
[img]http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcR5r8vUA_HPkIZLznF3tVBzjbWrg2RcHKcdQW0Qhvf7VxNnnedG[/img]

–yards of black fringe and miles or red chiffon flounces.

In short, men enjoy being envied, but they hate feeling conspicuous. And they particularly dislike vulgarity in the women they admire.”






madlady:

What's the best thing for dark under eye shadow? i don't like concealer. I'm using the cucumber trick, that's not really working.

madlady, try this:

@oyinda the information on that site was eye popping. I had no idea it could be attributed to so many ailments. I just assumed it was lack of sleep, which I really need. I gave the tea bag tip a go, worked like a dream. A big thank you.


@Topic I didn't know men dislike spike heels.
Re: Fashion And Beauty Tips For Women by oyinda3(f): 10:38pm On Dec 05, 2010
^ no problem.

always use cold water for rinsing your face instead of warm water. it will close your pores and is beneficial for the long run.
also, use sunscreen. I know this is common knowledge but it's important.
Cut back on sugars!!!! It  causes aging!!!

I like this thread. I dont fully understand the colour scheme, though. Since I'm dark skinned, does it mean i should get clothings with warm colours only? Or can i choose the bright colours from the two pallets?

you can be dark skin and be cool. See the lady's pics posted above yours? She's very dark skinned but cool colors (silver grey) look better on her than warm colors (brown. although the shiny fabric of the brown shirt looks nice on cool skin! think icy (cool) shiny).

if you are cool but you wear warm colors all the time, people will usually give you comments like "you look tired" etc

Even foundations use warm/cool color scheme. If you buy foundation at MAC, it will either be a NW or a NC. w= warm, c= cool.This makes all the difference in how you look!!

Nails. . . nails . . .nails.

Welcome to the world of SHELLAC GEL nails. kiss

http://www.komonews.com/news/consumer/122994693.html

http://beautyxpose.com/2011/musings/the-rundown-on-shellac-manicures.html



As for price? Plan on spending as much as twice the price of a basic manicure.

"It ranges in the industry from $30 to $40," said Ahern.

[size=20pt]That's $30 to $40 every two weeks. If you just want the polish removed with no reapplication, the removal costs about $5.[/size]

CND says any problems with chipping, peeling, or nail damage are typically caused by someone who is not licensed, not properly trained or not following the manufacturer's specific instructions for application and removal. You may also encounter people who claim they're providing a Shellac manicure, but are using a different, "similar" product.

Choose dark color clothing rather than lighter shades. Or prefer over a range of dull colours like dull blue or dirty blue.Don't forget to apply sunscreen to the rest of your exposed skin if you are planning to be out in the sun.

From a friend of mine:

What's a girl to do when she can't keep her lipstick on?

Put a light layer of face powder on your clean lips.
Line your lips and fill them in with a lip liner that matches your lipstick.
Apply your lipstick to your lips with a lip brush, this ensures that the color is evenly distributed.
If you choose, apply a layer of lip gloss for added shine.

never leave the house with out applying a sun block,even if you were as black as coal.

the UVA/UVB From the sun not only causes premature aging and wrinkles but also causes cancer as well.
use an spf moisturizer that has a protection for both.
Re: Fashion And Beauty Tips For Women by uzoo: 3:09pm On Oct 19, 2011
