Want To Stand Out? Hair’s How to Do It

For some people, the idea of making themselves stand out is terrifying. These people like to blend in with the crowd, be as unobtrusive as possible, and pass by unnoticed.

You’re not like that though.

You’re the kind of person who has no problem with all eyes being on you; in fact, you like it that way. You’re an expressive and creative person, so of course, you make expressive and creative choices when it comes to your looks. You don’t want to blend in; you want to be the showstopper in every room, wearing your personality on your sleeve — and on your face, body, and hair too.

If the above sounds like you, then you’re in luck. Below, there’s an exploration of three ways you can express yourself through the medium of the hair on your head. The beauty of toying with your hair and trying things out is that it will always grow back, so you can do as you please safe in the knowledge it’s not going to be permanent. Keep that in mind, and read on…

Choose A Creative Dye Job

If you don’t mind playing with the color of your hair to get maximum effect, then why not choose a dye job with a difference? Often done over bleached hair (to get the best color pop,) mermaid hair is increasingly popular. Given how beautiful the result can be, it’s easy to see why too.

If you’d rather stick with just the one color, then why not orange hair? Rather than being a problem to be fixed, orange hair is now gaining its own status as an outlandish, delightful, and absolutely deliberate hair color choice. 

Extend, Extend, And Extend!

Long hair is a statement. It’s an inherently feminine statement, and it’s also eye-catching — no matter what your age. However, long hair might be more of a dream than a reality; for some of us, our hair just doesn’t grow long enough or at a quick enough speed to sate your desire for something different. If this is the case for you, then tape in hair extensions might be the answer. With these, you can have a full head of long, flowing hair, without having to wait years to grow it out. Perfect. 

Be Brave; Go Short  

Short hair can look fantastic, as many celebrities have displayed over the years. However, among the general populace, short hair on women is less often seen. So if you truly want to stand out, then going short could be the most effective way of doing it.

One thing that short hair does, above all other styles, is accentuate your bone structure. For most people, a pixie cut will be extremely flattering. Contrary to popular belief, short hair can also be feminine, as proven by Halle Berry, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, and all the other pixie cut fans in the celebrity world. So why not take your lead from the A list, trim your locks, and enjoy a more noticeable style as a result? 

So which of these do you think might tempt you?

Melanin typically is the agent that is responsible for our skin colour. Though I am blessed with a fair skin, but pigmentation and blemishes are also often a result of melanin under our skin.

4 Awesome Tips About Enjoying Long Term Health And Happiness From Celebrities

Long-term health and happiness isn’t always something we automatically have. Taking care of your health is especially important as you age, and finding happiness outside of material things is so important. The amount of people suffering due to a poor diet, or trying to find happiness in buying ‘stuff’ or getting followers on social media is ridiculous. Even celebrities aren’t immune with all of their fans and money. Celebrities fall ill all the time, and even end up with depression. That being said, certain celebrities do have great advice for people who want it. Here are 10 tips from celebrities who know what they’re talking about!

Christie Brinkley – Start The Day Off Right

We all want to know Christie Brinkley’s health secrets. She looks absolutely incredible for her age. She says she always starts the day with hot water and the juice of a whole lemon, and sometimes adds cayenne pepper and honey. Rihanna is also a fan of hot water and lemon to start the day!

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley – Cut Out Red Meat

Jason Statham’s other half and baby-momma to be Rosie is a world renowned model. As well as being absolutely stunning, she’s also super healthy. She explains that she loves food, so she doesn’t restrict herself. However, she has cut out red meat. Since doing so, she says she feels so much lighter and healthier. Some studies suggest that red meat can have many negative health effects, so even if you don’t cut meat out altogether and go ‘plant based’, it’s a good move.

Russell Brand – Stop Caring About What Others Think

Russell Brand has been through a lot. A recovered drug addict, he’s been married, divorced, said some pretty controversial things, and now has his first child with his girlfriend. Russell says that it’s imperative you don’t care what other people think of you. In his words, it’s ‘irrelevant’. This is definitely a key to long term happiness. Doing things for others and being kind is great, but caring too much about how you look, what others think of how you’re living and so on, will only cause problems in the future. If Russell cared what other people thought, he likely wouldn’t have gone to rehab for heroin and methadone treatment. He’s been clean and sober for 10 years now!

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson – Do Your Bit To Help Others In Need

Dwayne Johnson is famous first and foremost for being ‘The Rock’, one of the most well known wrestlers of all time. Then he turned to acting in films, and he can sing a bit too. While he may look a little scary, he’s actually really, really nice. Not only is he healthy and loves to work out (that much is obvious) he’s also a huge advocate of helping those in need. In 2006 he started a charity that works with terminally ill children. He just loves having pictures with his fans too!

Try these things for yourself and see how you feel. Do it one at a time so you don’t feel overwhelmed!

Tips For Prolonging Your 20s

For the majority of us, it feels like our health peaked in our 20s and 30s, but then time started to take its toll on our bodies. Wrinkles began appearing, our energy levels decreased, and it become harder to maintain our peak physical condition. Suddenly we all wished we could go back in time and undo all the hard partying we did in our younger years. You can’t delay the inevitable; we will all age, and we will no longer look like young 20 or 30-somethings. But that doesn’t mean you can’t prolong your youthful health and appearance until you are well past retirement.

Defy ageing

People aren’t far off the mark when they say that younger people have glowing skin; smooth, plump skin reflects light more uniformly, granting the individual with a radiant shine. You can preserve your own youthful glow with a basic skincare routine that includes proper hydration and regular exfoliation. When you exfoliate your skin you are basically removing all the dead skin cells, oil, dirt, and germs to instantly reveal your younger looking face. Removing these dead cells also makes it easier for your skin to absorb any moisturizer and boosts collagen production, which gives your skin strength and elasticity.

Take care of your senses

Many years in your future, your eyes and your ears won’t be as effective as they used to be. If you’re genetically inclined towards partial deafness and short-sightedness, there might not be much you can do to prevent it, but you can keep your need for glasses and hearing aids at bay for a few years. It is good to remember that earwax is a natural protector of the ear and unless its amount is excessive, thickened and causing problems, it should not be removed, especially with the help of cotton buds that may damage the ear canal or eardrum. Make sure you get your hearing checked at least once a year, even if you’re not experiencing any problems.Your eyes should be checked every two years, and protected from harmful UV light. It’s also worth noting that regular exercise – such as walking – can reduce the risk of age-related eye degeneration by up to 70 percent.

Exercise

Regular workouts help to circulate more nutrients and oxygen to your skin to make you look more radiant, and it also boosts the essential production of collagen. Your muscle mass will be preserved, thanks to exercise, and your posture will improve. All these effects will make you look and feel younger for many years to come. Even if you don’t look exactly like you did at 20, you’ll still have the confidence of a much younger person.

Drink water

There is evidence that not drinking enough water may be associated with falls and fractures, heat stroke, heart disease, lung disorders, kidney disease, and decreased immune function. Water gives you energy, aids in digestion, keeps your organs working properly, keeps your mind sharp, and flushes out toxins. As a result, you also get clearer, younger-looking skin.

Don’t Put on Makeup Without Doing These Things

There are some things in life that you’re sure you have down. You’ve been doing them for a long time, and nothing seems to have gone wrong so far, so you must be doing something right. Right? Occasionally, however, you discover that you should have been doing something differently. Perhaps you’ve never been able to figure out why something always goes wrong, but it turns out it’s to do with your technique. For example, maybe you’ve been wearing makeup for a long time. Sometimes your skin suffers breakouts and your makeup routine is to blame, but you don’t even realize it. Your pre-makeup routine is just as important as when you put on your makeup, so make sure you get it right.

Clean Your Face

It might seem like an obvious one, but making sure your face is clean before you put makeup on is vital. You don’t want to put makeup on top of dirt and oil. Cleaning your face should involve both long-term skin care and daily care. At getprettyface.com, you can find a guide to facial steamers, which provide a great occasional option for gently cleansing your skin. You should also wash your face each day with products suitable for your skin type. And don’t forget rule number one – remove your last lot of makeup before applying it again!

Use Toner

A good toner can go a long way to keeping your skin in good condition and helping your makeup look better. Toner helps to clean any dirt and impurities that washing your face might not have taken care of. It’s also a good first step to moisturize your skin, especially if you don’t want to use a heavy moisturizer. Toner also helps to reduce the appearance of pores, which can mean you need to use less foundation and concealer. Plus, it can prevent dirt from getting into your pores, which is essential if you’re about to put makeup on.

Moisturize

Beautifully soft skin will look better, so you need less makeup. It’s better to moisturize to make your skin look better than to immediately go in with the makeup. However, be cautious when you moisturize because you don’t want to go overboard. Too much moisturizer could sit heavily on your skin and make it feel and look greasy. Start with only a small amount and focus on any dry areas of your skin. It’s also worth taking the time to find the right moisturizer for you. You might find some too heavy or perhaps too fragrant.

Apply Primer 

A primer is a great product to use before you begin putting your makeup on. It’s useful to help cover up blemishes and smooth your skin, and it can also help your makeup to last longer. You can get primers in creams, gels, and powders, so you might want to try a few different types to find the right product for you. Look at totalbeauty.com to compare some of the best.

Before you put on your makeup, make sure you’ve done everything else you need to do. Your makeup will look better if you follow a good pre-makeup routine first.

 

 

 

Seven Beauty Products To Add To Your Beauty Bucket List

Some people will have swimming with dolphins or bungee jumping on their bucket list of things to do. But for any beauty lover, their bucket list will look rather different and probably safer (as well as being quite a bit less adrenaline filled). A good bucket list nonetheless. Any beauty queen that you know will be on the lookout for new products all the time so that they can take their beauty expertise to the next level. So if you’re a wannabe beauty guru, then there are some items that you need to try before the year is out. Here are just a few of them. I’d love to know what else you would like to add to the list!

Lip Plumpers

 

There are many brands out there that are selling lip plumper balms or lipsticks at the moment, so it was hard to just choose one. However, whatever brand you choose, they are one of the products of the moment. It seems like many of us are taking a step away from anything cosmetic surgery related and want to get the same look in a more natural way. Which is one of the ways to explain why they are taking the beauty world by storm. Being able to get fuller looking lips by just changing your lipstick? Where do I sign up? If you want to read more about lip plumping products, then it could be worth looking at the Idol Lips website. Is this something that you think you’d like to try? If you already have, then let me know in the comments.

Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette

If you are looking for a stunning palette for your makeup collection, then look no further than the beautiful Kat Von D palette. To start with, the palette itself is really stunning. It is triangular shaped so looks pretty. Then you flip it open, and the four shades in there are, as the name describes, shiny and iridescent. They are almost three dimensional if that even makes any sense? You can use the palette for more than just your eyes, though. It could work as a highlighter on your cheekbones, as well as over lip balm and lipsticks. You could even dab one of the shades along your collarbone to really emphasise it. The possibilities are pretty endless.

Kérastase Aura Botanica Bain Micellaire & Soin Fundamental

If you like your beauty products to be on more of the natural side of things, then Kérastase have come up with a winning formula for you. These products are both over 95% natural and free from any nasties like parabens and preservatives. You’d think that the price would indicate that, but they are pretty competitive, as far as branded luxury shampoos go. Many people think that natural products mean that they aren’t going to be very good. But this has some really good reviews, as far as lathering up and keeping your hair looking smooth and hydrated. So good for your hair, your health and the environment? Winning.

Becca First Light Priming Filter

Becca has had some great products to date, especially in the dewy and glowing skin department. But their new primer is just amazing. It might look a little shocking, as it is purple in the jar. However, don’t panic, it goes sheer onto your skin. It really evens out skin and brightens your skin. The dewy and glowing look can finally be achieved. I could go as far as to say that you can get away with only wearing this, rather than more makeup. But if you choose to wear makeup on top of it, then as it is a primer, it will help the rest of the makeup to stay in place and prolong the fresh look of it.

By Terry Baume De Rose 

Though this skin cream is on the pricey side of things, at around $90 a pot, it could be worth it for any beauty lover looking to get some seriously good looking skin. It has a rose scent that isn’t overpowering, that leaves your skin feeling fresh and smelling good. It also comes in a pretty pink color, so it would work well as a pretty gift for someone else. But even if you just want to use it for yourself, it will help you to have a healthy complexion that shines and looks hydrated. It leaves your skin feeling fresh and amazing. Why not give it a try?

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask 

It seems like Charlotte Tilbury can do no wrong. She has done it again with this magical facial dry sheet mask. The sheet, as the name says, is dry. You massage your face after putting it on and then the ingredients are released. The great thing about them is that it can be reused around three times. So it makes it much more value for money than other face masks that you might find. So if you want hydration, brightness, and smoothness on your skin, then this is the thing for you. At around $20, it is a bargain!

Cutex BB Nail Concealer

Not all beauty products are going to be about your face or hair. Our nails need some love, right? But from time to time, they can be quite dry and damaged, can’t they? You want to leave them bare, but it can be so tempting to just cover them up and keep on painting them. So a BB cream is a great solution to that kind of dry nail problem. BB creams are not just for your face; you can get ones for your nails. The nude tint of the cream will make your nails look healthy, as well as hydrating them at the same time. And for just under $7, it is a great addition to your beauty arsenal. You can put off your next manicure appointment for a couple of weeks longer.

Have you ever tried any of these products? It would be great to hear what you think.

 

The Latest Jewelry Trends For 2017

Staying on top of fashion trends is the only way to make sure that you don’t fall out of style. Knowing what’s in and what’s out can help you avoid making any embarrassing fashion faux pa’s but a lot of people forget about the smaller details. Accessories are what make or break an outfit so if you get them wrong you can ruin a perfectly good outfit in seconds. One trend that people often neglect is jewelry. There are some pieces that will always be in style but don’t fall into the trap of thinking that this is true of all of it. Certain things that might have been fashionable last year are completely out by now so you have to be careful. If you aren’t up to date, have a look at these recent jewelry trends.

Rose Gold

Rose gold has been a part of the fashion world for a while but at the moment, the color is very popular when it comes to jewelry. It’s a great way to introduce some pretty pink things into your outfit without going overboard with incredibly bright shades of pink on your clothes that might be a bit too much. It’s also a popular choice for lots of other accessories so match your new rose gold earrings with a phone case or a necklace to top off the look. It’s also becoming a popular choice for wedding rings because it’s more interesting than standard gold.

Bold Necklaces

The past few years have seen a massive focus on smaller, choker style necklaces but that’s starting to change this season. Instead, people are going for much larger, bold necklaces that really make a statement. Thick chains with a large stone on are much more fashionable than a thin, shorter necklace. Anything that is art deco inspired is especially good as this is what most of the people in the industry are choosing.

Large Earrings

The view that bigger is better is not just confined to necklaces, it’s also directing the style of earrings that people are wearing this year. Nobody is wearing small studs at the moment, they’re going for huge earrings instead. Anything that uses interesting shapes and materials is a winner.

Single Earrings

As well as big earrings, people are also deciding to wear just the one. It’s a pretty out there move, but if you choose the right style, it can really work. If you’re going to go for the single earring look, make sure it’s something oversized that makes it clear that it’s a choice. If you wear a single small earring, people will just think one has fallen out.

Minerals

Uncut minerals used to be something that people had as an ornament on the shelf but nowadays they’re being used for jewelry as well. Bold necklaces with large sections of uncut mineral on then are really in style at the moment. Healing crystals have also made a big impact at some fashion shows recently.

Crucifixes

The crucifix is a jewelry item that’s always coming in and out of fashion for both men and women. It hasn’t been in for a few years but now it’s back. The traditional crucifix won’t quite cut it though. Find something a bit bigger with plenty of color on it and you’re sure to impress.

 

 

 

 

Got a Passion for Fashion? Turn It into a Profession!

Turning their passion into a profession is the dream of many. Unfortunately, however, not enough people attempt such a venture as they choose to, instead, make do with their ‘safe’ job. But where’s the fun, and the passion, in that? Nobody should stand for letting their passion disappear as they settle for a job that doesn’t provoke any sort of feeling within them. And fashionistas certainly shouldn’t stand for it. There are plenty of ways for fashion lovers to forge a career in the fashion industry — read on to find a few of them.

  1. Dress well; dress differently

Both when you’re in the comfort of friends and when you’re in your fashion based job — whether this be an internship, an entry level fashion store job or a position of management in such a store — you need to dress differently. You need to prove to everyone that you are someone who knows how to be different with their dress sense. But you also need to prove yourself as someone who is on trend too. So, why not try tweaking the current trend, whatever that may be, in your own, unique way?

  1. Connect with as many fellow fashionistas as possible

Even in the fashion industry it is a case of who you know rather than what you know. This is unfortunate because, really, it should be the other way around. However, it’s not and the sooner you accept this, the better off you’ll be. And the sooner you begin to make vital fashion connections, the better off you’ll be too. Whether this means schmoozing the boss of your internship or entry level store job, or connecting with fashion designers as you climb higher up the ladder and attend networking events, you must do it. And you must do it even if you are prone to shyness.

  1. Always, always, always aim higher

Whether being the CEO of a fashion company is your life’s goal or not, in order to forge a career in the fashion industry you have to show yourself to be someone that always wants more. And to show you always want more, you should always be searching and applying for higher level jobs. There are a host of careers at Belk that suit this description perfectly. At the moment, the company has vacancies in all sort of high level roles: from Director of Brand Management to Sourcing Associate to Technical Designer. And these are the sorts of roles that you should set your sites on. Well, in any case, what’s the harm in applying?

If you are a lover of fashion and have a real passion for it, what’s stopping you from turning it into a profession? Certainly not advice on how to go about it, that’s for sure, because it’s all up there above. Maybe it’s because you’re scared that being in such close proximity to fashion at all times will force you to hate it? If this is the case, then you should know that the best and most amazing hack that every fashionista should know is that a career in fashion will provide them with on-tap clothing. If that’s not enough to entice you into the industry, then what is?
