Put away your lipstick girls- this season it’s all about eyes! During the autumn/ winter 2014 season, I noticed that the stained lip is out, and the bare mouth is in! This fashion season the focus is on eyes- but not just any eye makeup. Funky eye makeup! From liquid latex applied to the lids at Dior, to extra-long false lashes at Rochas and Gucci, designers turned their attention to eye make-up when creating their season’s catwalk beauty looks. The ever-present natural look remained popular on the runways as well, but this time with a healthy, sporty vibe – partnered with naturally wavy, tousled hair – or with clever sculpting and definition for a perfected take on the bare-faced look. In regards to hair, this season the ballerina bun made it’s triumphed return to the spotlight. However cornrows made an unexpected appearance at Alexander McQueen, Marchesa and DKNY. This autumn/ winter 2014 season is all about the natural when it comes to hair and makeup. So take a break from the flawless-face, and perfect hair. Keep it simple, but with lots of personality. Below are some looks straight from the runway. Take a risk and try one of these looks, and rock it out with confidence! xx, S. Lenore
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.
