(www.cakeplateonline.com)

With California’s beauty and fashion experts all under one roof, they’ve got just the tips, tricks, and advice you need to stay primped and stylish this summer!

Every girl knows that a fabulous frock simply cannot go unaccompanied without a fabulous face! But thanks to Cake Plate Boutique’s latest pop-up shop partnership with international beauty brand, Benefit Cosmetics, valley vixens (and you!) can reap the “Benefits” of having a fashion and beauty at their perfectly polished fingertips all summer long!

Serving up fashion well done has always been a Cake Plate forte. But this time, owners and style experts Lindsay Kroll and Paige Smith are pushing the fashion envelope even further, as they concoct on exceptionally scrumptious treat for all glam gals to indulge in – a Benefit branded, 375-square-foot mini-boutique inside the walls of the boutique. A grown-up candy shop for makeup mavens, Cake Plate customers can peruse the Benefit counter for must-haves products like prrrowl, BADgal lash, benetint, posietint, and sugarbomb (to name a few), drop in the brow bar for a touch up from one of the eyebrow experts, or experience a fast lash application – the perfect topper to any chic ensemble. And, if they are in the mood for a bit of style, they can shop designers like Kate Spade, Lauren Moffat, Milly and Trina Turk in the separate Cake Plate section of the store.

I have always been a fan of Benefit and their newest launch Stay Don’t Stray is no exception. My eyes look so much brighter and awake when I use Stay Don’t Stray, I never thought of needing a concealer and brightener but once I saw how great my eyes looked I’m hooked. On top of all the magic it does to open your eyes it holds shadow tight all day keeping you looking great way past happy hour.

When is the right age to start wearing makeup?

What is the Appropriate Age to Wear Makeup?


From Womens Healthcare Topics

Do you remember dressing up in your mom’s high heels? Putting on her dress? How about wearing her red lipstick and blue eye shadow? We live in a society that influences little girls to grow up fast. For a young lady, wearing makeup is often seen as a rite of passage to becoming a woman. The question is: At what age is it appropriate to wear makeup? What is the appropriate amount of makeup and what colors are best?

There is no “right” age to start wearing makeup. Some girls begin wearing minimal makeup at age 11, such as lipstick or eye shadow. Parents of young girls display controversy on the issue. Some parents are more conservative in their views stating that kids do not get to be kids anymore. More and more young girls are being influenced by music and the media to look, dress and act a certain way. You can find just about any cosmetic product in glitter: nail polishes, lotions, lip gloss, eye makeup, and bikinis are targeting girls ages 6-12.

Some psychologist state that wearing makeup at an early age leads to increased interest from males. Some believe it is sending a message that says you are mature and possibly interested in being in a physical relationship. Makeup changes the perceptions of the face to be similar to that of a mature woman.

You may have heard the famous words, “Everyone’s wearing it in school,” and “It’s not fair.” It is important to question why she truly wants to wear makeup. If it is because everyone else is doing it or so guys will notice her, these are dangerous signals. How you feel about her wearing makeup sets a precedent for everything else she does. Allowing a young girl to wear makeup sooner than when you feel she is ready, may send the message that she can partake in other “adult-like” activities sooner than she is ready for them.

It is an inevitable fact that young girls are going to want to wear makeup at some point in their life. It is essential at the onset of wearing of makeup that clear boundaries are set on what types of makeup and the amount being worn is determined. How much makeup is too much? It is best when staring out, to keep the makeup subtle.
