Be sure to use a fluffy brush, a light hand and not too much black as it's easy to go overboard. Start with a little and build up to the intensity you desire.

Skin & Beauty

Believe it or not your skin is the largest organ of your body. It is a living organ which heals and renews itself constantly. It covers your entire body and consists of two clearly defined layers:

1. The epidermis is the superficial or outermost layer. In other words, this is the skin we can see and feel. It forms the protective covering. This layer contains no blood vessels but has small nerve endings and is made up of five layers of cells. The pigment called melanin is found in this layer. Melanin protects the sensitive cells beneath, from the harmful effects of the sun. The greater the exposure to sunlight the greater the production of melanin.

2. The dermis or the inner layer is located just under the epidermis. This layer is highly sensitive because it contains nerve endings. It also contains numerous blood vessels, lymph vessels, sweat glands, sebaceous glands and hair follicles. These are held together by collagen and elastin fibers, which together give the skin its strength and resilience.

Each hair follicle has a sebaceous gland, which produces sebum. Excess sebum makes your skin look and feel oily. If the neck of a sebaceous gland is clogged, sebum accumulates, giving rise to acne. A deficiency in the production of sebum produces dry skin. Your teenage years could be your best time or your worst time depending on your hormonal activity.

During your 20’s your skin should look its best. It can however be adversely affected by allergies, hormonal imbalances, stress, and exposure to the elements. In your 30’s your skin may begin to lose the bloom of youth. You may begin to see the appearance of dryness and fine lines. The skin tends to be more sensitive and extra special care is required during this period. In your 40’s your hormone production slows and the skin begins to lose tone and elasticity, giving rise to wrinkles, creases and fine lines. While these changes occur naturally as you age, they can be minimized and controlled by properly caring for your skin. Cleansing, toning and moisturizing your skin twice daily can help you rejuvenate and revive your skin. Now that you have a better understanding of your skin and how it works, I am sure you will appreciate that the time to begin your personal skin care routine is NOW!

Eyebrow Help



Sparse or thinning eyebrows could be the result of a medical condition like hypothyroidism, nutritional deficiencies, the natural aging process, or simply overzealous tweezing. Whatever the cause (and you should check with your doc to rule out any serious conditions), you can reclaim a beautiful eyebrow shape with this primer on eyebrow shading.
When you're filling in your eyebrows yourself, Rule No. 1 is: Don't be scared! You can do it without having that obvious drawn-in look. The key is to use brow powder or powder eye shadow (much more subtle than using a pencil, which can create strong lines).
Before adding color, first determine where your eyebrows should begin, peak, and end. "Once the brow shape is defined, the thickness is then a matter of choice based on the individual's personal style," says Vincent Longo, makeup artist and creative director for Vincent Longo Cosmetics.
Here are Longo's tips for finding your eyebrow shape:
  1. Figure out where your eyebrow begins by placing a pencil vertically against the side of your nose and the inner corner of the eye. This is the starting point.
  2. Next, place the pencil diagonally from the side of your nostril to the center of the pupil — this is the highest point of the arch. Make sure the pencil is vertical, since any slight angle will throw off the brow shape.
  3. Lastly, to determine where the brow tapers off, place the pencil from the side of the nostril to the outside corner of the eye. This is the end point.
Mark these three points on each of your eyebrows using an eye pencil, visually connect the dots, then tweeze or wax off hairs that fall out of bounds.
To fill with brow powder, choose a shade close to your natural hair color (or one or two shades deeper if you have pale eyebrows), then follow the steps below.
  1. Apply brow wax (or ChapStick!) on your eyebrows as a base.
  2. Dip an angled liner brush into brow powder and using short, light strokes "draw" hairs over the new brow shape you created, starting from the center of the brow outward. To define the underside of the brow or to fill in very sparse areas, apply a bit more pressure.
  3. Blend the color with a brow brush or clean toothbrush.
  4. Finally, use a spooley brush (it looks like a mascara wand) to apply clear eyebrow gel onto your brows for extra hold.
Women with very light-colored eyebrow hair can "thicken" their brows with colored brow gels and brow tints in a shade or two darker than their natural color. These products, which often come in 2-in-1 packaging, resemble mascara, but the formulas are lighter in texture and have less pigment. However, it takes a little practice to master brushing on the color without getting it on your skin.
Whether you're filling in your eyebrows temporarily or need to permanently add it to your beauty routine, these tips will help you fake your way to lush, shapely eyebrows.


It is very important that the sunscreen that an individual uses contains SPF protection, so that the skin is guarded from the ultra violet rays.
