Makeup Tips Fit for a Princess‏


With a true “happily ever after” soon upon us, the world eagerly awaits what look a 21st century princess will don on her big day. If Kate Middleton’s classic poise is any indication of her fairytale wedding appearance, she is sure to look nothing short of picture perfect. Celebrity makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff gives her beauty predictions and tips for how the leading lady can enhance her flawless features for the grand event. A glamorous and classic look will be the perfect accessory for Kate’s subtle charm, because after all, a princess deserves to feel (and look!) like royalty.

· For her wedding ceremony, Ashunta recommends that Kate:
o Highlight her natural beauty with a look that glows from the outside in:
0 Mary Kay TimeWise Luminous-Wear Liquid Foundation provides a radiant backdrop for her gorgeous look

o Play up her flawless bone structure by sculpting her cheekbones with the perfect bronzer. A hint of peach blush on the apples of her cheeks will create a slight contour to her oval face:
0 Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Shy Blush provides a healthy and natural glow

o Dress her lips with a subtle and soft shade to emulate her timeless beauty:
0 Mary Kay Creme Lipstick in Sweet Nectar adds light sheen and color to lips for a classic look

o Adorn eyes with neutral colors and accent with wispy lashes:
o Mary Kay Mineral Eye Colors in Cinnabar, Silky Caramel and Crystalline will emphasize her earth tone eyes
0 Finish off with Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara in Black to make eyes pop

· To celebrate wedded bliss, Ashunta recommends giving Kate’s look a burst of color for a more regal reception look:
o A bright lip is a fun way to spice things up:
0 Mary Kay Creme Lipstick in Hibiscus provides a pop of magenta for a look fit for a princess
o A soft smokey eye could transform Kate’s look from demure to allure:
0 Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Iris could add a hint of plum to bring a little something into Kate’s ceremony eye look

The scariest beauty invention of all time!

I still can’t decide if this is legit – or some sort of joke!

I just caught a glimpse of this video online, and I’m afraid now that I’ve seen it, I’ll never get the image out of my mind! Are women really using the Facial-Flex which is supposed to tighten the muscles around your mouth.

My question – is it really worth it?

I looked the product up online, and found a few reviews:

As a gym buff, I knew that my face also needed “resistance training” if I were to keep it firm. After using the product for about a week, I noticed that my smile was more symmetrical (for some reason, the left corner of my mouth at times didn’t always rise equally with the right). My cheeks also looked fuller. It’s still a challenge to use the product correctly but I’m making facial flex a part of my regimen.

I found the facial flex to be a great product, but you have to be consistent. I do 120 in the morning and 120 in the evening, it does take some time if you do it properly but you really feel it. I do notice a difference it has been about a month since I started using it.

Maybe I’ll take their word for it?

This product isn’t cheap! It’ll cost ya somewhere between $40 – $60, not including shipping!
