We live in a very tech savvy world, all of our daily functions are either influenced or supported by a form of smart technology. These advancements in technology will continue to enhance our daily tools and functions. So it is inevitable that the future of beauty will include the merging of makeup and nano technology.
The videos above feature developing concepts for “electronic makeup”. These electronic makeup devices would eliminate the guesswork when applying makeup. This would allow makeup applications to be much easier, faster and more precise, which would enable you to achieve your desired result with more ease.
Hey Guys!Do you need a little help in the men’s beauty department? If so, it’s OK, I’m here to help. Women are very observant. We notice everything about a man’s appearance. These things influence our decision to date you, or take you as a lover. So, if you want to improve your status with the ladies; or if you want to be sexier for that special lady- this is the post for you. Here are the basics: Women like men that smell good, Women like men that take pride in their appearance. Women like men that are clean and well groomed. Guys, if you can follow these 3 basic guidelines to men’s beauty and grooming then there is hope for you! A well groomed man is a sexy man. These male beauty and grooming tips will keep you manly, but make you sexier!
Let’s get started!
Cleansing your face with an exfoliant gets rid of dead skin particles and leaves your face feeling smoother and looking great. It can also help prevent black heads, acne, and ingrown hairs. The apricot scrub shown below doesn’t cost a lot money, and it works nicely to clean skin and minimize pores.
This stuff works great.
Here’s another reason to lay off the coffee and black tea. They stain. Avoiding them will help you maintain your bright smile.
One of the biggest things women notice when they first meet a man, right after smooth, clear skin, is a gorgeous bright smile. It doesn’t matter if you’re male or female this is important.
Michelle Phan has a DIY recipe that uses strawberries to whiten teeth.
One word: strawberries. That’s right – according to Michelle Phan and Health.com, strawberries contain malic acid, which acts as an astringent to remove surface discoloration on your teeth. Next time your teeth need a pick-me-up, give this easy DIY treatment a try:
½ tablespoon baking soda
1.) Crush the strawberry to a pulp-y consistency
2.) Add in baking soda until blended
3.) Use a soft toothbrush to spread the mixture onto your teeth
4.) Leave on for 3-5 minutes
5.) Rinse and brush thoroughly with toothpaste
6.) Floss out any stray strawberry seeds
NOTE: It’s best to apply this treatment only once a week – the acid can damage the enamel on your teeth if you overdo it.
No matter how often you clean your teeth, they can become stained from drinking tea, coffee, smoking, and eating certain foods. There are many different ways to whiten your teeth, but the cheapest and most common option is to use a whitening toothpaste: although it might take a little longer than other methods, it will give you a brighter smile in two to three weeks.
To enhance your well-manicured nails, a spot of clear nail polish or varnish will make them look even cleaner.
You may also want to consider having a gravity-centered colonic to remove some of that old, acidic waste (never use laxatives for this purpose).
Consider incorporating a high alkaline diet along with moderate exercise into your lifestyle. Also, eat less fried and sugary foods.
Being healthy on the inside reflects on the outside guys!
When you look good, you feel good, and you are oozing confidence. Then all that is left is to enjoy your life.

1.)Revlon Parfumerie Nail Enamel Scented Nail Polish Finally Grows Up! This was the first time fragranced nail polish seemed glamorous (in the past, they tended to be scented and coloured like candy, and were marketed more to our inner five year olds). The line is divided into three sub ranges. There’s the Fruits & Florals, which are largely bright and cheery shades in opaque finishes. The Sweets & Spices, which are richer hues, mostly in shimmering finishes. The Freshes, which are all about the cool pastels and a variety of fun finishes. Each shade is inspired by a certain smell – and the colour corresponds to the smell. For instance, the color “Wild Violets”, is a glamorously dark purple that really does smell like the pretty powdery flower. It also has a gorgeous retro feel to it – like you’ve dipped your fingers into a vintage pot of violet-fragranced face powder. If you try it- It helps to start with a base coat, and then apply two very thin layers to get the most intense effect. Skip the top coat if you want to get the full effect of the scent. If you use a top coat, you’ll probably find that the perfume has trailed off after 24 hours or so. This isn’t meant to be a long-lasting formulation. So, I would suggest using this product on special occasions, when you want to smell fabulous all over, even down to your finger tips. 2.) Bare Minerals 7 Day Skin Detox Presenting The Dummy-Proof Peel Younger, brighter skin in 7 days? Yes, please! And that’s exactly what BareMinerals 7-Day Detox Mineral Brightening Peel promises to deliver. According to BareMInerals, this week-long series of treatments will deliver your best skin ever – brighter, clearer, smoother and more evenly toned. Each vital targets a specific skin need and then builds upon the previous day’s benefits. The system is comprised of BareMinerals’ proprietary ActiveSoilTM Complex and uses ingredients such as exfoliating acids, hydrators and Kombucha Black Tea. The overall process claims to rapidly detoxify, reinvigorate and reinforce your skin’s support network for visible results. Sounds fantastic, right? But does it really work? Or is was it just another hyped-up product? Here’s my review… Yes! It works! Upon purchasing we (me, and my test dummy-girlfriends) saw that BareMinerals claims in their studies that 100% of women saw results after trying the 7-Day Skin Detox Mineral Brightening Peel. And to be honest, we didn’t believe them. But boy did they prove us wrong. After our own product testing, we have to agree, and also conclude that 100% of us saw results in just 7 days. In fact, we started see results right away! We each had varying skin issues, and some had more peeling with the system than others. But the overwhelming conclusion is that we do indeed have brighter, clearer and more evenly toned skin after using the products for 7 days.
If you try it:
If you try it:This product has a an extremely powerful minty scent. If you have allergies, or if your sensitive to strong scents, be very careful, or keep some Benadryl nearby. Once the hair is dried, there is zero mint smell left behind. Which is a plus! If you have very thin hair, after using this product your hair may become stick-straight, and lacking in volume. But if you add a few spritzes of Bumble & Bumble sea-salt spray into the hair after shampooing, allow hair to air dry, and your volume/wave is easily restored. 4.) Redken Pillow Proof Blowdry Express Primer Redken Got A Major Makeover This Year! For thick-haired people whose blowouts take foooorever (or for anyone in a hurry), a few spritzes of this blow-dry primer really does cut drying time: It shaved ten minutes off our curly-haired tester’s blowout. The formula doesn’t weigh down hair or make it feel greasy, plus it can help you get an extra day out of a style. WHAT IT DOES:
Those with normal to dry skin, or more mature skins who want to achieve that naturally radiant, youthful, supple effect without shimmery highlighters.
The nifty thing about the sponge, aside from the durable, antibacterial material and the handy groove in the middle, is that the two ends are actually made with slightly different finishes to give you a different effect.
Step 1: The flatter, rounded side is modeled after the Shu “Botan” brush, and designed to repel oil from itself. This allows it to create a polished finish when you gently tap foundation onto the skin.
Step 2: On the other end, the pointed tip is created with a different sponge coating to lift excess oil from the skin surface.
Tip: You tap foundation all over, and then you use the pointed side to get into corners, and to dull down the shine where you don’t want it. Usually the T-zone, and areas where your face creases more from movement (by the nose, around the corners of the eyes, etc).
Cleansing: The sponge is durable and can be washed and re-used for a long time. I don’t use the beauty blender, so I can’t make a comparison but I did find it very difficult to get all the foundation stains out, maybe because the sponge is so fine-grained. But take my opinion on this with a pinch of salt because I don’t use sponges often. (I have a compulsive need to wash them after every single use, which wears them out faster.)
I recommend sticking to the included sponge. This hand-finished lightbulb shaped sponge was designed specifically for tapping and creating a glowing finish with the fluid foundation.
11.)Marc Jacobs Beauty Marvelous Mousse Transformative Foundation You’ll Have The Mousse — Trust Me! Transform your skin to its ideal complexion with this nutrient rich, full coverage foundation. This surprisingly lightweight mousse formula glides onto your skin as a decadent cream, and transforms into a velvety matte texture. It blends seamlessly. Marvelous mousse finishes as a lightweight, full coverage powder for a flawless finish everyday. It is simply the most buildable, yet natural looking foundation I’ve ever tried. The Marvelous Mousse Transformative Foundation is constructed of coconut water, and vitamin extracts to maintain optimal moisture levels, Indian ginseng to soothe the skin, and amino acids to improve the skins ability to stay hydrated. This product is also mineral oil free. It is OK to use if you have combination to oily skin. The feel of this foundation is extremely lightweight on the skin – it stayed looking satin on me – not flat-matte, or mask-like, and it’s not oily. It really seemed to blend seamlessly into the skin, and the rest of my makeup applied beautifully on top. Because of the slight bit of added effort that is required during the application process, I will probably reserve this product for nights out, or special occasions where I really want a flawless and long-lasting finish. The cool thing about this product is if you apply it only in focus areas, it could be an excellent solution for a everyday natural makeup as well. In many ways this is the most versatile foundation I’ve used. It’s the perfect foundation to pull off only applying foundation where you need it, leaving ‘good’ parts of your skin natural. Magic people! If you try it: This is not a foundation that does your whole face in seconds. I suggest you work in small sections to achieve the level of coverage you need/want in any particular area of your face, herein lies the genius of this product. If you have marks/scars to hide; just go over the problem areas with a few very thin layers, and the coverage will increase. The finish will remain exactly the same – a natural satin/matte (though I wouldn’t say ‘powdery’ as the brand describes) that won’t look like there’s layers of product on your face. If applied correctly, the end result will be, a completely non-cakey flawless coverage. This product can totally cater to Your complexion. Application: Work in small sections, because this product doesn’t ‘spread’ particularly far. Blended the sections with the flat top of a kabuki/buffing brush. It will become virtually undetectable on the skin, and offer impressive coverage at the same time. 12.) MAC Eyeshadow x 15 Eyeshadow The Naked Palette Gets Some Serious Competition. Mac Eyeshadow x 15 Palette contains 15 warm eyeshadows. There are two pre-filled neutral 15 x eyeshadow palettes available, one warm and one cool. Both palettes cover a broad spectrum of neutral tones, and both are equally strong when it comes to workable, wearable eyeshadows. The big difference is basically the way the eyeshadow palettes can be used: the warm palette lends itself well to editorial work, whereas the cool palette is beautifully bridal with a selection of delicate cool creams and taupes. Although rather pricey ($100 USD or $120 CDN) , I think you will appreciate the quality of the palette. Majority of the palette is very pigmented, creamy and easy to blend. If you try it: You should love it!
Life is too short to deny yourself the occasional party!
However, when a harmless night out with friends turns into a shot slamming, wine chugging night of debauchery, and you still have to work the next morning, what do you do?! How do you conceal the visual signs from last nights girls night out?
Well, you’ve come to the right place for advise.
Here’s how to get your shit together!
Step 1: Get going
Since there’s no time for dilly-dallying, take a power shower with a super invigorating body wash like Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel from The Body Shop. The wafting citrus scent will wake you right up!
Step 2: Salvage your skin
Instead of tussling with your face cream, primer, and foundation, rely on an all-in-one BB Cream, like Garnier’s Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector. It’s a tinted moisturizer that covers redness and unevenness just as well as a full-blown foundation.
Next, add a healthy wash of color to the apples of your cheeks with Dream Bouncy Blush by Maybelline. Available in 10 bright and beautiful shades, apply the lightweight gel formulation using a tapping motion with your fingertips for a seamless, natural-looking finish.
Step 3: Energize your eyes
Did you know that excessive alcohol consumption dehydrates your eyes? That’s precisely why they feel dry and look bloodshot after a wild night out on the town. For instant relief, lubricate them with two drops of your favorite redness-banishing eye drops.
Chances are your eyes are swollen and saddled with dark circles as well. De-puff and brighten your peepers with Lancome Beinfait Multi-Vital Eye SPF 28. Enriched with vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids, using just the tiniest amount of this treatment will help mask the unsightly effects of last night’s debauchery.
Your primping pièce de résistance? YSL Touch Éclat Radiant Touch. Loved by many industry professionals, this miracle concealer is the ultimate beauty essential—a click and a few swipes underneath each eye illuminates the shadowy area, leaving you looking like you caught much more than a few hours of shut-eye last night.
For a little bit of oomph, doll up your gaze with the length- and volume-inducing Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara. It gives your eyelashes a sexy false lash effect with just two coats.
Step 4: Master your mane
Don’t bother fussing with your hair; that’s what impeccable ponytails are for. Dampen your locks and palm a handful of Redken Hardwear 16 Super Strong Sculpting Gel from your hair line to the nape of your neck. Brush hair into a low ponytail using a boar bristle brush, and tautly secure the base with a tress-tone elastic. Not only does it hold hair in place for hours on end, it also imparts a high, healthy-looking shine.
