When it comes to colorful eye makeup this spring, overdoing it is an understatement, and can make the difference between looking like you mistook your blush for eyeshadow, or getting it just right. When working with brighter, stronger hues, it’s always best to layer the color so you get the perfect application.
Celebrity make-up artist and beauty expert beth bender suggests starting first by lining your eyes with a waterproof black pencil , her favorite is benefit’s BADgal eyeliner, followed by rimming the eyes with a light blue pencil. Continue by sweeping your choice of a blue-green shimmer shadow, or bright blue shimmer shadow over your lids. “Shimmer shadows are a lot easier to work with and for first timers will be easier to blend if the color becomes too intense” say beth. “I like to use the On the List , or Girls Night Out kits because they include softer shades that allow you to build the color, and the shimmers are easier to apply.”
Make sure to avoid getting too close to the brows, which can end up looking very theatrical and definitely not glamorous. Instead apply a lighter shimmer shadow on the browbone blending into the crease.
Beth’s Beauty Tip: “I like to use my fingers to apply the first layer of color, especially if it’s a shimmer and then go back and blend with a brush”. Use a Q-tip with a drop of eye cream to clean up any eyeshadow that may have fallen, and before applying concealer. You can add a few individual lashes at the ends of each eye for added glamour.”

Last week, our commenter eEv remarked “I have my preferences, but if I were to say, “Guys, please do not ever ever go to the gym because we ladies find six-packs really unattractive,” many ladies would disagree.” According to the Sydney Morning Herald eEv is in the majority. A study was recently conducted in Queensland that found that most women really don’t love six packs after all.
More than 600 participants were shown mock-up advertisements featuring men of varying body types and told to rate their appearance. Both men and women rated slim male models or even slightly chubby ones just as highly as those with rippling six packs. The study leader remarks:
Some participants in the University of Queensland study ”may have attributed the models’ muscularity to vanity or homosexuality, characteristics which they may have found unpleasant or discomforting.’”
I think it’s more likely that they just remembered the men they’ve dated who woke up at five in the morning to do crunches to a Guns n’ Roses soundtrack (not everyone feels welcome in the jungle). That said, we hope that this reminds male models that lots of different body types can be attractive, rather than making them feel like they should stop going to the gym and live off of coffee and cigarettes.

Fashion conscious women prefer to spend their money in plastic surgery and proudly show it off. They want smaller noses to look almost like Barbie. “You guessed wrong! I am not talking about Beverly Hills but rather Iran.” A Beverly Hills rhinoplasty specialist explains. With Over 100,000 plastic surgery per year Iran has been the rhinoplasty capital of the world. A woman’s beauty is an essential component of Iranian culture. ”Kill me, but make me beautiful,” one Iranian proverb goes. ”The beautiful face soothes the tired heart and opens the closed door,” goes another.
However the Islamic rulers of Iran have been limiting the display of female beauty by enforcing Islamic dress code. Iran’s strict Islamic dress code has backfired. Where the women face is the only visible part of the body it is understandable that unsightly nose can take a center attention. Influenced by flock of western culture through internet and satellites, Hollywood noses are the Persian women’s dream. The desire among lovely Persian women to look like Snow White is strange but it is a direct reaction to authority’s attempts to make them look like bats and crows.
There have reportedly been more nose jobs in Iran recently than in any other country in the world. Persian women are flocking plastic surgery offices like nowhere else in the world. Right after leaving Tehran’s plastic surgeons’ operating rooms, women rush to their favourite coffee shops to show off a new bandaged badge-of-honour noses. Some even wear fake bandages just for the show off. Now It’s becoming increasingly common for Iranian men to have cosmetic surgery too. Business has been wonderful for hundreds of doctors specializing in nose and other facial surgeries. Of even greater concern are the rising instances of facial disfigurement resulting from operations carried out by unqualified surgeons. As a result, Iran’s justice ministry has set up a special office for medical malpractice cases. Between 2001 and 2004, it dealt with 2,715 cases arising from cosmetic surgery , leading to 459 doctors receiving various forms of written rebuke and 21 being suspended for up to four years.
In Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, one of the largest communities of Iranian outside Iran, nose job still remains one of the most requested surgeries by Persian women. The Beverly Hills facial plastic surgeon, explains. In United state too non qualified surgeons are allowed to perform rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is by far the most difficult of all the plastic surgeries thus He recommends board certified facial plastic surgeons.

Laser hair removal is always seems to be an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure. And 'non-invasive, convenient and less painful than some of the more traditional means of removing unwanted hair permanently.

The Dixie Chicks , sisters Emily Robinson and Martie Maguire have taken a big step by releasing an album without lead vocalist Natalie Maines Pasdar. According to the sisters, they were getting rather anxious during their 4 year hiatus, wanting to get back into the studio. For Emily it was even more urgent because she needed something to focus on after her divorce from country singer Charlie Robinson in 2008. So, the sisters started writing…Hence, Court Yard Hounds …
As children growing up in Addison, Texas, Martie and Emily learned to play multiple instruments, including guitar, banjo, and violin. Their parents pushed them at age 12 and 10 to do bluegrass shows together which eventually led to forming the Dixie Chicks in 1995 with Natalie as lead vocalist. They have won 13 Grammy’s as well as selling 30 million albums. Their new solo album Court Yard Hounds, is filled with acoustic, rock, country and folk elements. Martie told BSW that her sister Emily just kept sending her song after song that she had written over a two year span. The Sisters will be on tour this summer with The Eagles. Their album will debut on May 4, 2010.
Look out, these two working mom’s have musically inclined children as well and from what BSW has heard, they have formed their own band and who knows…they might be bigger than the Dixie Chicks…

Last week, I attended a press event for Tom Ford’s new line of lipsticks. I’m a big lipstick fan, but I’m also fiercely unloyal – I’ll wear anything from drugstore brands to stuff from Sephora , all in search of the perfect color. It’s a trait I get from my mom. Neither of us wears much makeup during the day, but we both rely on lipstick as a way to look pulled-together. Tom Ford told Vogue that one of his memories of his mom was how she’d put lipstick on before answering the doorbell, and I feel the same way about lipstick’s ability to make people look dressed-up instantly.
However, the Tom Ford lipsticks are something completely new for me. For one, they have heft – these aren’t lipsticks you can throw around and abuse, they’re serious, well-crafted products. The heft, combined with the “TF” logo on the top of the lipstick, really drives home the fact that these products, while pricey, are made with care. The line has four nudes (although, as I said earlier, I think we need to find a new term to replace “nude” , four bold shades (including True Coral, at left), and four dramatic shades (including Bruised Plum, at the bottom of the page). Even though I normally prefer berry shades, I have to admit I’ve been utterly won over by the neutrals. Right now, I’m sporting Warm Sable, a beige that might have been the very hue Julianne Moore wore in A Single Man.
There was one thing that bugged me about the lipsticks, though – they smelled faintly of something lovely, but I couldn’t figure it out. Finally, after a couple of days, I believe I have found the formula. Behold:
