I’ve been dying to try Constance Jablonski ‘s gorgeous bronze look that was featured in Vogue China, a few months back. I’d saved the pictures and looked at it several times through out this summer. Truth is, I was attracted like magnet to this look and was waiting on finding just the right bronzer to finally try it out. And when I found the perfect product I got work, immediately !
How To :
1. Start off with clean moisturized face
I have been regular with my latest crush – Envision Beauty The Solution Moisturizer. It has made a huge difference in the betterment of my skin !
2. Mix a liquid highlighter into your tinted moisturizer and paint a thin layer on your face.
I used Clinique Up- Lighting Liquid Illuminator – 01 Natural + Smashbox HD Foundation.
3. Give it a couple of minutes to settle down
4. Take a large fluffy face brush and dust your bronzer below your cheek bones, the temples, sides of your nose and across the sides of your forehead. Run the brush now, along your hairline and sides of your chin with whatever is left. I am loving the Milani Powder Bronzer – Light. Though its called Light, the color works perfectly with my NC 40 skin tone.
5. Let them brows be unruly – adds to the look.
6. Line your waterline delicately with a black eyeliner. Then use a white / pink shimmer pencil to highlight the inner corners of eye and bridge of nose. I like Anastasia Brow Highlighter pencil.
7. For the lips I went with a fuchsia shade – Cover Girl Out Last Lip Stain 410. The model’s light eyes make for a great contrast so I built in the contrast with a fuchsia lip. If you are all for the brown look try Jouer Lip Gloss – Monsoon, Avon Big Color Glossy Lip Pencil – Glossy Sand.
That’s it ! Are you bronzing a lot this summer ? If not , you must try it sometime ! Compliments will follow – trust me .
MAC Cosmetics recently released “Digi-Dazzle” Lipsticks, a limited edition collection of glittery, shiny lipsticks in bold and unpredictable colors. I was extremely curious about these lipsticks because I love MAC Dazzleglass lip gloss, but sometimes, you just want the formula and finish of a lipstick instead. These lipsticks have a similar effect as the Dazzleglass lip gloss, but with a lipstick finish, making them bold but sophisticated. To see swatches of “Hot Sass,” “Naughty You,” and “Liquid Lurex,”
I had a very difficult time choosing which Digi-Dazzle Lipsticks I wanted after swatching them at the MAC Counter. Let’s just say – I wanted one of every single one! I eventually narrowed it down to three that I thought would be the most wearable for me throughout all seasons, and I chose “Liquid Lurex,” “Naughty You,” and “Hot Sass.”
Naughty You is a hot neon berry pink with tons of dazzle and sparkle. I absolutely love this shade because while it is bright, it’s also extremely flattering. If I am wearing a hot pink lipstick, I typically plan the rest of my makeup and look around it because it is the star of the show. Naughty You has the ability to be sheer, and it can be layered for dramatic hot pink color, or applied lightly for a pretty berry pink wash of color.
Hands down, the best thing about these lipsticks is the finish. It is quite sheer, but buildable, allowing you to layer the color for dramatic pigmentation, or apply lightly for sheer, natural color. The glittery finish is also gorgeously fun and feels a lot more “mature” on your lips in lipstick form, rather than wearing a glitter gloss. These lipsticks will inevitably be a hit or miss with beauty lovers, depending on your overall lip color and formula preference.
MAC Cosmetics Digi-Dazzle Lipsticks are limited edition, available in thirteen gorgeous shades, and retail for $14.50 each at your local MAC Counter.
MAC Cosmetics Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara has a double-effect for your peepers! Haute & Naughty Lash is a two-in-one mascara that lets you choose if you want lashes to be natural, or more dramatic, all in one tube. To see how this unique mascara works,
- Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara is an extremely unique product of its kind. It allows you to twist the mascara tube open to reveal two different mascara wands, for two completely different effects on your lashes. Untwist the pink part of the mascara tube to reveal a mascara wand that will give you natural, toned-down eyelashes. Untwist both the pink and the purple part of the mascara tube to reveal a double, “pumped-up” mascara wand that will give you dramatic, voluminous eyelashes. The idea behind this product is fabulous, giving you a great tool to travel with and tote around without having to carry multiple products. MAC, of course, houses this product in gorgeous, fun packaging, with a hot pink and purple glitter “handle” to distinguish between the two effects.
The pink wand on Haute & Naughty Lash is thinner, and has less bristles on it than the purple and the pink wand together, giving you a more natural look.
The pink wand alone (the “daytime” look) really gave me great results. It separated each lash perfectly, and gave me just the right amount of length and volume. It looks natural, but still plays up your eyes. I was very pleased with the results of the “daytime” wand.
The purple wand combined with the pink wand (the “nighttime” look) created a much more dramatic, voluminous, lengthening effect to my lashes. I did feel like this one clumped easily, though, and I actually preferred just the pink wand to both wands together.
Overall, I liked this mascara, and I like the convenience of a two-in-one product. MAC Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara retails for $18 and can be found at your local MAC counter, or online by clicking this link .

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 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.
