Deep Set Eyes!

11 Jun

One of the best things you can do is Highlight your lid.  God gave you a crease you don’t need to deepen it.  So instead of hightlighting your brow bone like all the other eye shapes you want do put midtone on it.  You are trying to push back your browbone and bring forward your lid.  You also want to be very light handed with your accent color.  Just on the very corner of your eye don’t bring very much into the crease.  Demi or her make up artist 🙂 did a really good job in this picture.  She is such a natural beauty I think.  Deep set eyes can tend to be a hooded eye as you age so make sure you use a FABULOUS eye cream to help with wrinkles!  Deep set eyes are beautiful help them guide them to be that way!

Exceptional Eyes!!

6 Jun

Your eyes are the first place that we show aging.  So one of the first things that we need to make sure is that we have a Fabulous eye cream!  One of the main things about aging is hydration.  If your skin isn’t hydrated watch the wrinkles appear.  So,  number one in an eye cream is make sure that it is very hydrating.  I know that for me you should probably start using an eye cream once you graduate high school.  I KNOW I KNOW  crazy but true.  I thought I was super young and I was and then I was walking down the mall one day and one of the kiosk ladies asked me do you want to know how you can get rid of those eye wrinkles and I was APPAULED  I do not have eye wrinkles.  But I went home and sure enough they had crept up on me.  The sad part is I had a FABULOUS eye cream in my make up bag I just wasn’t consistently using it.  So moral of the story start using it so you don’t have to worry about them coming for years.  Great thing though they dissappeared so even better news people you can reverse the hands of father time!!  A great eye cream can have vitamin c, collagen producing peptides.  You can also look for an eye cream that brightens to help if you have light circles.

Anti-Aging Eye Creams For Wrinkles

  • Wrinkles and fine lines around the eye area are always associated with aging;  ingredients in anti-aging eye creams such as caffeine, alcohol, retinol,  alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA), copper peptides and vitamin C are used to tighten  skin and stimulate collagen growth. Collagen gives skin elasticity and  hydration, giving it a more youthful look

Transformation Tuesday

Jess’s Blog.  I read her blog.  So great Click Here  She lost over 120 lbs. I never had to lose that much, but even half that was hard so I can only imagine how hard it was.  I want to send out kudos.  Jess such an amazing story.  I truly agree that there is no magic pill, no magic shake its all about eating less than your out put 🙂  calories in calories out.  One of the things I love is Jess has a 3D virtual weightloss makeover tool that you can make.  I think that it could be a really great way to get an actual picture of what you would like when you lost the weight.  Such a great idea.  Have a picture of you motivate you not just a picture in the magazine.  I do think having something visual to remind you that it can help remind you to make better food choices and stay active.  YOU CAN DO IT!!

Wide Set Eyes!

4 Jun

The way you figure out if you have wide set eyes is if you take the length of the eye and try to fit it in the middle of both eyes if you have extra space than you have wide set eyes.  Wide Set eyes this is for sure one of the eye shapes you would NOT want to do the Cat eye.  Bring as much dark color into the inner corner.  You really want to layer in that inner corner.  Usually you would put the accent color in to the iris the middle of the pupil.  With the wide set eyes you want to pull in in farther than that.  I have a friend that has wide set eyes and seeing without her makeup  is strange because I hardly ever see her without it 🙂 I hate to say that.  But when she applies it the right way it works and looks FABULOUSLY!!!  I chose this picture because her makeup is not doing her any favors.  She needs to pull that color farther over and has too much highlight or not enough midtone.

Don’t “weight” to exercise! Eat for two?

29 May

It is a journey not a destination!  Eve is in a very similar situation and I think that that happens a lot.  You have a weightloss problem, you lose weight, you gain weight, etc.  Click Here I think it makes a difference to have people you are accountable too, and many people have started blogs for this reason I think.  I have had 3 kids and when I was pregant with my first I was a little heavier and I wish I had worked on being thinner before the first one.  I lost the weight after my 2nd one, and my third I was at my goal weight before I got pregnant and that was nice, and here I am thinking about doing it again. 🙂  I used to think when I got pregnant I heard that you can’t start working out.  So I used it as an excuse.  I also used I am eating for 2!  I don’t think that is true at all from all the info I have researched and talked about to my doctors you only need an additional 400 or 500 calories and guess what if you are already eating too many calories guess what you don’t need to add anything.  Eating healthy, working out, will only help you.  What do you think?  Do you eat for two!?  Haha do you eat for two now even if you are not pregnant.  Your stomach really does shrink or grow based off of how much you eat.  After I started losing weight I was surprsed how much I truly did eat and how much crap I ate!  It adds up quickly!

Close set Eyes!

28 May

Close set eyes are figured if you can’t fit the length in between both your eyes than you have close set eyes.  Alright so I am using celebrities because I want you to see that just because you have one doesn’t mean you should be upset or think it is the wrong one.  At first I thought mine was a negative, but I really have found I love playing with my own specific colors and applications.  When you have close set eyes.  The one thing you for sure don’t want to do is have a really dark accent and pull it super far into the other eye.  The more you pull it in the closer they appear.  So the accent color you want to make sure you leave it just on the outside and you can for sure do that cat eye look.  That would specifically work really great with this eye shape.  So think about that.  You can wing it out.  This is the one eye shape that if you want to go outside of the line of the corner to your eye brow you can.  It won’t be a bad thing.  So remember that.  When choosing how to make it look more dramatic.  Instead of pulling it farther in push it out a little bit.

How to avoid wrinkles!

How to Reduce Wrinkles: What You Can Do

Ok so I read this article.  I loved it these are things you can do without spending a ton of money!!  So important and so many things you can do to help.  Hope you all have

1.Avoid the sun. It’s the No. 1 cause of wrinkles, with dozens of studies documenting the impact. In one study that looked at identical twins, New York plastic surgeon Darrick Antell, MD, found sun exposure was even more important than heredity. Siblings who limited sun time had fewer wrinkles and looked younger overall than their sun-worshiping twins.

2.Wear sunscreen. If you must go out in the sun, the American Academy of Dermatology says, wear sunscreen! It will protect you from skin cancer, and help prevent wrinkles at the same time.

3. Don’t smoke. Some of the research is still controversial, but more and more studies are confirming that cigarette smoke ages skin — mostly by releasing an enzyme that breaks down collagen and elastin, important components of the skin. Sibling studies done at the Twin Research Unit at St. Thomas Hospital in London found the brother or sister who smoked tended to have skin that was more wrinkled and up to 40% thinner than the non-smoker.

4. Get adequate sleep. Yale dermatologist Nicholas Perricone, MD, says that when you don’t get enough sleep, the body produces excess cortisol, a hormone that breaks down skin cells. Get enough rest, Perricone says, and you’ll produce more HGH (human growth hormone), which helps skin remain thick, more “elastic,” and less likely to wrinkle.

5. Sleep on your back. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) cautions that sleeping in certain positions night after night leads to “sleep lines — wrinkles that become etched into the surface of the skin and don’t disappear once you’re up. Sleeping on your side increases wrinkles on cheeks and chin, while sleeping face-down gives you a furrowed brow. To reduce wrinkle formation, the AAD says, sleep on your back.

6. Don’t squint — get reading glasses! The AAD says any repetitive facial movement — like squinting — overworks facial muscles, forming a groove beneath the skin’s surface. This groove eventually becomes a wrinkle. Also important: Wear sunglasses. It will protect skin around the eyes from sun damage — and further keep you from squinting.

Do you Hate Obesity?

22 May

Ok so I read this article about Meme roth and to be honest I had no idea who it was, but I couldn’t stop reading it because it was just so interesting.  Very controversial I think but I am curious what you all think.  I guess she is disgusted with americans and the obesity epidemic.  Which I agree we have very bad eating habits and we pass it on to our children.  I think that is the worst part harming our children.  Now the harm is how she does it.  Some people think she goes WAY over the line, and some maybe agree with her.  What is your take?  Have you heard of Meme roth?  Do you agree with anything she says or all?  Just curious.  I agree we teach our children how to eat and that is where I fear for the future generations.  In this article Gabby at one point tries to ask Meme what she eats, what a typical day looks like and she seemed very shy about sharing.  It was 4:00pm and she agreed she hadn’t eaten anything, but she says she has never been anorexic.  Now not sure what the exact definition she thinks is but this is one of the defintions Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by excessive food restriction and irrational fear of gaining weight, and a distorted body self-perception.  Meme agrees that her family is fat.  And said she was embarassed and I know when that happens you do have an irrational fear maybe and so even if she still eats but she might just have a case of anorexia.  Not to say we shouldn’t watch what we eat and become healthy.  I just think sometimes we need to watch what we say because you don’t motivate “FAT” people by telling them they are fat.  Trust me it doesn’t help I have been there 🙂  Let me know what you think?  I would love to hear.

Droopy Eyes

21 May

We can always tweek our makeup to make things appear a little differently.  For the next couple of weeks I am going to do a series of how you should change your makeup based off your eye shape.  If you have a droopy eye the corner of your eye turns down a little bit.  Some people might want to raise it a little bit.  When you do your midtone and you do your accent you don’t want to pull it down you want to raise it a bit.  Normally you don’t want to pull color any farther than diagonal from the corner of your eye to the tip of your eyebrow, but especially with a droopy eye you want to lift it a little bit higher.  You also want to leave a little space in between your eye liner of the top and bottom lid.  If you connect them than you drag your eye down ward again.  If you do this you will be amazed at what a little change of where you are placing you color can affect how lifted your eyes look after!  Give it a try and let me know what you think.  Deep, close, prominent, wide set eyes are all Yet to come 🙂
