The Chanel SoHo Nail Polishes: Steel Yourself for These Strong Fall Shades

Chanel says, “It’s fall. Time to go to work.”

Well, it’s official. Elvis and summer have left the building. They walked out the back door, the one by the loading dock, and met for brewskies down at the Harvest Moon, you know, that little pub where all the classic fall nail colors hang out after work.

Every fall I pack up my warm weather must-haves — my neon nail polishes, fuchsia glosses, booty shorts with “I heart the Jersey Shore” written across the back (kidding!) to make room for autumn’s awesome goodies. This year, I’m clearing space for a couple of real workin’ stiffs called Steel (a shimmery gunmetal gray) and Strong (a shimmery blackened plum), Chanel’s two new SoHo Le Vernis nail polishes for fall ($23 each).

Why do autumn leaves make me want to paint mah talons with darker colors? Is it a cavewoman thing? Who knows, but if you like the look of dark fall nails, feast your Bette Davis eyes on these.

Plastic Surgery Decisions – Seek Before and After Pictures

Plastic surgery is a medical procedure that has been around for centuries starting out as early as 2000BC in India. What had started out as a crude method of restoring facial features has turned out to also be a lucrative business for cosmetologists. With today’s society putting more and more value on what looking good is all about, it is not surprising that one of the most sought after, and most common, plastic surgery procedures would be breast augmentation.

Breast augmentation is primarily a cosmetic procedure which makes use of prosthesis to alter a woman’s breast. Some of the most popular reasons for undergoing breast augmentation include breast size and sagging breasts. Breast augmentation, however, is not for everyone. Surgeons and cosmetologists would usually take into consideration the age of the patient as well as the reason for wanting the procedure. They would also check for any allergies as well as any health condition that might adversely affect the procedure. You would also need to keep in mind that, although breast implants may look real, they oftentimes, do not feel real.

In the same manner, before you go and jump at the first opportunity to have breast implants, you would also need to do some checking around first.

The first thing that you would need to consider is the surgeon who would be performing the procedure. Someone who has a solid record when it comes to breast augmentation would be a good candidate. You can ask for referrals from friends and relatives who have undergone the same procedure. Another way to find a reliable surgeon would be to search online. A number of sites can provide you with testimonials as well as before and after pictures of people who have undergone the procedure.

Once you have decided on which doctor to go to, you would need to check with him any pre- and post-operative instructions he might have for you. This would usually include instructions on your diet as well as physical activities. This would help you get ready for the weeks following your operation.

You would also need to choose whether you should go for a silicone implant or for a “natural” implant. Your doctor would be able to help you decide which one to go for. They would also make certain measurements in order to get the right implant size for you. Keep in mind that silicone implants present a probability of capsular contraction as a result of the body rejecting a foreign material. On the other hand, “natural” implants such as saline implants can get really cold during winter as they do not have the ability to conduct heat. This could be quite uncomfortable on your part.

Guttate Psoriasis Treatment – The Basics

If you have small, red, and scaly lesions over a large area in your skin, then it will do you good if you are going to avail of a guttate psoriasis treatment as soon as possible. It is necessary that you address this skin disease as soon as the symptoms appear because there is really no direct cure for this. And if you are a suffering from this kind of condition, then you should really know how you can cure it.

If you want, it is also a good idea if you are going to adapt an all-natural guttate psoriasis treatment. There are actually a lot of home remedies that you can try. First, you have to make sure that the affected area is always moisturized. And in order for you to do so, you may need to soak the affected area in water. It is also a good idea if you will apply some moisturizer to soften the scales.

It will also do you good if you are going to take mediations such as antibiotics. This is also very effective because it can target the main cause of the infection. Some people also try phototherapy which is a very popular guttate psoriasis treatment. Phototherapy uses UV rays as the main tool in curing this skin disease.

It is also a good idea if you are going to adapt a healthy diet. This is very important because you have to make sure that you ahead a strong immune system and healthy liver. You should avoid eating food items such as sea foods, red meat, tropical fruits, and dairy products. You should eat more of leafy vegetables and fish rich with omega 3 fatty acids.

Actually, there are also some people who adapt a raw food diet. This way, they will avoid any food item that is cooked because it is believed that they are filled with various toxins.

As much as possible, you should also prevent the occurrence of those kinds of diseases. It will also do you good if you are going to avoid causing skin trauma. You should not scratch your skin or rub it vigorously.

Also, when trying a particular guttate psoriasis treatment, it is very important that you let your doctor know about it. Thai is necessary because you do not want to try anything that can only make your situation worse.

When trying a particular guttate psoriasis treatment, it is also necessary that you still adapt a healthy lifestyle.

Well, I did tell you I was going to collect all of the Maybelline EyeStudio Color Explosion Palettes, right? Here are the blues, with Blue Blowout, and it does not disappoint. I am not huge on blue eyeshadow on myself, but let me tell you, these shades are stunning. In fact, I am pretty sure this one is my favorite in terms of shade and color payoff. To see photographs and swatches,

Aren’t the colors gorgeous in this palette? I am usually not one for blues, simply because I don’t necessarily love them against my blue eyes, but this palette is beautiful.

Isn’t the periwinkle amazing? I also was surprised at how well the matte shades applied. I was expecting them to be chalky, but they were super smooth and pigmented. Overall, this palette has high-end quality (like the rest of these palettes), and I am so pleased with this new collection. One of my readers was kind enough to comment that the purple palette, “Amethyst Ablazed,” is a great dupe for the Lancome Color Design Palettes, and she was spot on. I couldn’t quite place what these palettes reminded me of, but she is right on the money, and these are just a fraction of the price! I snagged this palette and the browns for Buy One, Get One 50% Off at my local CVS, and I also had a $5 CVS Beauty Club (which you should definitely join) credit, so I got a fabulous deal on these. Of course, as with all these palettes, I have a look and tutorial coming up using this palette.

Coastal Scents Gel Liner is an amazingly pigmented, inexpensive cream eyeliner for your eyes. While they are most popular for their eyeshadow palettes, they also have other high-quality products on their website. 24K Gold is a great example of the very hot metallic trend going on right now in makeup. The gel liner puts down vibrant, pigmented metallic gold color on your eyelids, and the best part is, these liners are super easy to apply because of their formula. To see full photographs and swatches,

24K Gold is a vibrant metallic gold gel liner. Metallics are all over the runways lately, from fashion to beauty. This eyeliner is the perfect finish to a brown smokey eye, or even on its own for an unexpected pop of edginess.

The formula on these liners is great for beginners and advanced makeup users alike. The liner is creamy and glides effortlessly, but it also has a bit of a dry texture to it, as well, which makes applying it a cinch. Simply sweep a stiff liner brush into it, and glide across your upper or lower lash lines. The slight dryness to the formula makes it almost impossible to mess up your line.

The liner looks so different swatched on the back of my hand versus on my actual eye, so I made sure to do an eye makeup look with it, as well. This is Wet n Wild’s “Silent Treatment” palette and 24K Gold gel liner:

The final result literally reminds me of liquid 24K Gold poured onto my lash line. It adds an unexpected rock-n-roll edge to my otherwise average brown smokey eye. It also helped to make my eyes look way more awake and sparkling.

Coastal Scents Gel Liner retails for $6.95 for a 3g jar of product and is available in twenty-five different shades. The best part about these gel liners are the vibrant, rich colors available! Whether you are into neutral shades or extremely bold shades, there is something for everyone. I personally am very impressed with the wear on these liners, and have a lot of the other shades on my want list. You can purchase these online at Coastal Scents.

Tutorial: Wet n Wild “I’m Feeling Retro” Palette Makeup Look

Tutorial: Wet n Wild “I’m Feeling Retro” Palette Makeup Look Retro7 Wet & Wild Tutorials Feature Columns Eyes Categories Beauty Bargains

Bold! Jewel tones! Retro, cotton candy-esque flair! The Wet n Wild “I’m Feeling Retro” palette is truly gorgeous. Wet n Wild makes it so easy to apply their eyeshadow, with a handy guide on the back of each palette for beginners, and with labeled shades. You know I love bold, daring makeup, and this palette got me there. This palette was a little harder to work with than I thought it would be. The fuchsia and the blue weren’t as pigmented as when swatching, but add a little bit of mixing medium or water, and you’ve got rich color again. To see how to get this look,

I’m Feeling Retro is not for the faint of heart. It has beautiful, bright jewel tones that will stand out when applied. The look is bold and playful, but also still sexy, especially with cat-eye eyeliner.

I’m Feeling Retro Look Instructions:

  1. Apply the shimmering white shade into the inner corners of your eyes (upper and lower), and expand it all the way to your brow-bone. We want this shade to open up our eyes!
  2. Pat down your fuchsia color all the way to the crease. I needed to go over this step about 3 times to get the pigmentation I wanted. If you need to wet your color, simply add a mixing medium, or water. I used MAC’s Studio Fix + Spray.
  3. Using a pencil crease brush, apply the blue into the crease of your eye, extending slightly upward, and into the outer third of your eye. This shade you will want to apply wet for truly great, rich blue color.
  4. Take a fluffy blending brush and blend out any harsh lines.
  5. Apply the blue to your entire lower lash area to tie the look together.
  6. Line your upper lash line and lower waterline (both optional) with black eyeliner, flicking it up at the corners on your upper lash line for a retro “cat-eye” effect. Curl your lashes, and apply mascara.

The end result is playful, flirty, and bold, but still carries that sophistication because of the bold cat-eye eyeliner. I used MAC’s “Blacktrack” Fluidline gel eyeliner for a truly retro look. I also dabbed the eyeliner onto my lower water line for added drama. I love the end result because it is very colorful, and well…I am a colorful person!
