How to Get Rid of Scaly Lips

If you suffer scaly lips, 

a simple do-it-yourself tip to exfoliate takes only a finger Vaseline ball and an old toothbrush.

Step 1: Slather lips with jelly oil

Step 2: Use a toothbrush to massage a jelly in a circular motion.

Step 3: Wipe the excess of Vaseline.

Take a toothbrush to your lips, massaging jelly in a circular motion. Wipe any excess petroleum jelly. 





The toothbrush exfoliates lips while leaves lips petroleum jelly extra sweet. Repeat once or twice a day until your lips are no longer scales.

Do you want a professional exofoliator more than perfect for the scholarship? Try lip Scrub , a sugar scrub created just for lips. The results are similar to my toothbrush and Vaseline thing, but frankly so great taste (I like the peppery flavor) and leaves lips soft and supple I think it should add a "Warning: May be Addictive" message on its label. Makes a great gift for any friend discernment

How to Apply Eyeliner - - Eyeliner Tips & Tricks-2

The Smoky Eye

Ahhh the smoky eye.

 Perhaps there is no longer running eye makeup trend than the smoky eye, which is in no danger of going out of style. The key here is to blend well. Also, make sure to keep all other makeup light or you risk looking like a clown. You don't want the rest of your makeup to compete with your eyes.





Step 1: Holding the skin of your upper lid taut, apply eyeliner from the inside corner of the eye outward. Draw strokes into the lash line. The middle of the line should be a bit thicker than the edges.
Step 2: Use a cotton swap (or your finger, if you're lazy like me) to "smudge" the liner.
Step 3: Dab an eyeshadow brush into a deep-hued eyeshadow and apply over the eyeliner to set the line. (Blow on the brush first to remove any excess shadow). Layering liner with a shadow is the secret to a perfect smoky eye.
Step 4: Blend shadow well, then follow with eyeshadow. According to the March 2006 issue of InStyle Magazine, with a smoky eye, "color should diffuse from rich and dark near the lashes to almost sheer as it extends to the crease.

How to Apply Eyeliner - - Eyeliner Tips & Tricks-1

Eyeliner can make even the smallest eyes appear larger.
 Applying it correctly is key, you don't want the line to be too dark, harsh and obvious or you risk looking overdone. Here we share our favorite tried-but-true eyeliner tips.

The Basic, "I'm Off to Work or the Weekend," Eye

This is the perfect work or weekend look for women who want their eyes to "pop" without giving off the appearance of a woman who's really, really into makeup, so into makeup she has this site bookmarked in her Web favorites.
The key to the basic eye is to apply with a light hand. Unless you are Catherine Zeta-Jones or Beyonce and have been blessed with sultry dark looks, opt for a lighter shade than kohl or black. 
The basic eye is all about appearing natural. Leave the black for the looks below.
This look calls for liquid or pencil eyeliner, a deep-hued eyeshadow and an eyeliner brush.


Step 1: Holding the skin of your upper lid taut, apply eyeliner from the outside corner of the eye, stopping two-thirds of the way along the eyelid. Apply with short strokes, drawing the line into the lash line rather than above it. For a more dramatic look, make the outside line a bit thicker than the inside. 

Step 2: Set liner with a deep eyeshadow. Dip eyeshadow brush into the shadow, then apply shadow over the eyeliner. This will set the eyeliner, which tends to rub off on eyelid.

Step 3: Apply eyeshadow to lower lashes. Using your eyeshadow brush, apply the deep-hued eyeshadow along the bottom lashes, from the outside in. Unless you have wide-set eyes, don't line the entire lower lid. Instead, stop halfway across. For a more natural look, don't dip the brush into the shadow again, instead, use the excess that's still on the brush for the lower lashes.

Step 4:Clean up any mistakes with a cotton swab. 

Extra tips: To make eyes appear wider, trace the inner rims of eyes with a white pencil.
Throw out the cheapie applicators that come with your makeup. Investing in a good set of makeup brushes is key to a flawless face).

Blush: Try a Cream Color

If you are into blushes or want to try a new type of blush, consider the creams that are new to the market this spring.

cream-blush-colors

 They go on light & look super natural as if you just went for a run. Having spent years sans cheek color.



cream-blush-application

How to apply: Use the tips of your fingers to apply little dots on the apples of your cheeks up into your hairline. Blend in with fingers. Or, for a more natural look, sweep color across cheeks with a nylon-bristled brush.

 The best thing about this cream blush is it doubles as lipstick.

types of Blush

The right blush during the right time of day is key.

 But how to pick the perfect blush? Should you go powder, cream, tint, shimmer or gel? There are many different types out there so here I run down the 5 main types so you can choose what kind you need & when (day or night?)!

Powder Blush



Powder blush is great for all skin types, but best for oily skin and anyone looking for long-lasting color (it's the densest of the blushers).

Cream Blush

 

This type of blush is best applied with the fingers. It's also dense, but lets your skin show through. Cream blush is particularly suited for dry skin because of its rich, moisturizing ingredients.

Gel Blush

 

Gel blushes provide a sheer glow. They work best on oily to normal skin and are hard ot spread onto dry skin since they are fast-drying.

Tint Blush

Like gel blush, tints are fast-drying and can look streaky over foundation. If you're going to use it, blend it fast and blend it well. Once it's set it won't budge until you wash your face.

Shimmers

These are great for giving a light gleam to your cheekbones. These are best for nighttime. The great thing about shimmers are you can dab them on your forehead, in the bow of your upper lip or in the inner corners of your eyes. But avoid your highly wrinkled spots, since these will accentuate them.

Teeth whitening

 

Teeth whitening is one of those quick beauty fixes that can totally change your look while knocking out your pocketbook. Many dentists have jumped on the trend & offer teeth whitening in their offices, or you can splurge at a whitening spa .

 But while nothing will work as fast as a professional laser whitening procedure, the over-the-counter remedies will give you great results, according to New York dentist Dr. Jennifer Salzer in the September 2005 issue of Lucky Magazine.

Here are some options to try:
1. The strips. Crest Whitestrips Premium Plus actually work & are quite affordable.

2. GoSmile System. This bleaching tray system is a bit pricier than the strips but they work great and are easier on sensitive teeth.

3. Whitening toothpaste. The toothpaste is actually better for maintaining your white smile after you've lightened. So use #1 or #2 and then invest in some toothpaste. Just remember to drink your tooth-staining coffee & dark sodas from a straw.

How To Re-Touch Roots

Touching up your roots is something you can do at home in between salon visits. You'll want to purchase a color that is as similar as possible to your own processed color. Follow directions on the box, but here are some extra tips.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 30 minutes

Here's How:

  1. You'll want to put on your gloves (provided in the box) & we suggest an old t-shirt.
  2. Divide hair into 4 sections, down the middle & from ear to ear. Pin each section up with plastic hair clips. Apply petroleum jelly along your hairline. This prevents the dye from staining your skin.
  3. Mix color as directions suggest on box. Unclip one of the front sections & using brush, apply color evenly around the perimeter of the section from the roots up to the point where the processed color begins. You will want some overlap. Don't massage into scalp.
  4. Use the applicator tip to work in 1-inch panels. Flip hair over & apply color to this new part. Repeat halfway partings until all roots in that section are covered. Re-clip saturated hair, then repeat on remaining 3 sections.
  5. Set the timer for five minutes before the processing time is supposed to end (processing usual takes about 25 minutes).
    When timer goes off, comb the color down from roots to ends. This ensures even coverage. Use any leftover color from the bottle.
    Leave on for five minutes. Rinse hair thoroughly in the shower with lukewarm water until the water runs clear. Condition according to package directions (most kits come with conditioner).
  6. Style and show off your gorgeous color...

Tips:

  1. If you have highlights, it's much more complicated (though not impossible) to get roots touched up. Watch next time your stylist gives you highlights -- thousands of strands get color while thousands do not. Improperly touching up roots would give you an uneven look.
  2. Clairol's new Nice 'n Easy Root Touch-Up Kit is a great kit for root touch-ups.
  3. Don't have time to color your roots? Try eyeshadow! Simply spritz your part with hairspray, then pat the shadow onto the roots. Brown will mask gray, while golds work best on blondes.
  4. Apply Sea Breeze along hairline & anywhere else the dye may have strayed. The alcohol prevents the dye from staining the skin.
  5. Put on a shower cap while waiting for hair to process. This will help keep drips from running.

What You Need:

  • Your favorite hair color product (should come with gloves)
  • Wide-toothed comb
  • 4 plastic jaw clips
  • Old button-down shirt
  • Old towels

Have a few gray strands that stand out? Rather than dying your entire head, you have the option of using hair mascara. Check out your local drugstore for different brands or if you want to go posh, a good bestseller bet is Christian Dior's Mascara Flash for Hair.

How to Save Money at the Beauty Salon

For years I spent a lot of money on fancy salons when I had the simplest haircut imaginable: Straight and long, no layers. Then I saw a friend with the same haircut who admitted she spent a whopping $15 every six weeks at Supercuts to look just like me.
If you have a special haircut or complicated color, yes, you should be consulting a professional and investing money in your hairstyle. But if you want to go either a shade lighter or darker, or you have a super simple hairstyle, you could save money at the hair salon with these five tips.

Want Subtle Change? Do Your Own Color

While highlights can be complicated, all-over color is a great do-it-yourself job for those looking for a subtle change or to cover up gray. Today's home coloring formulas are super hydrating and very user-friendly.
The key to dyeing your hair at home is to go no darker or lighter than a couple shades. Anything more drastic and you should go to a professional.

Save on the Cut, Splurge on the Color

If you're used to spending money on cut and color, consider getting your cuts done at a discount salon. This is a great option for those with simple haircuts like long, straight hair or bobs.
Magazines love to tell you that if you color your hair professionally, you should get your hair cut at the same time. While there's definite perks to this, including coloring hair according to the cut (highlights on long layers, etc.), I firmly believe if you're looking to save money you should splurge on the color and save on the cut. Why? Fixing a bad color job can be a bigger hassle than cleaning up mis-snipped ends.

Hit the Discount Salons in Between Pricey Cuts

I love this tip I read in the book, "Confessions of a Beauty Editor," by the editors of Allure: Get maintenance haircuts in between your pricey salon visits. According to "Confessions," even beauty editors get discount cuts to save money.
They suggest telling the discount stylist to cut along the "map" set by the fancy stylist.

Go Back to School (Beauty School) or Hit a Salon's Training Night

One of the best ways to get a fancy haircut without the price is to set an appointment at a local beauty school. Most of the stylists-in-training are overseen by an experienced teacher so you can bet they won't make a mess of your hair.
Some big salons also offer discount days or training nights. You can enjoy a pricey cut at a fraction of the price.
Another option is to hair model for a salon. You don't have as much say in your haircut as you would if you were paying for it, but most stylists will stay within your perimeters.

Get Your Bangs Done, Free

Don't pay to get your bangs done. Most stylists will trim your bangs between cuts for free. You simply drop in and the trim takes less than five minutes.

Teasing Hair - - How to Do it Right

Every once in awhile, when hair is flat and limp, a bit of a tease goes a long way. But don't go all out -- a full head of teased hair doesn't look good on anyone, I don't care if you were born, bred and currently reside in Dallas (I can say this as I hail from Texas).
Here's how to get a great head of mildly teased hair.  

Rule #1: Focus on the crown.  
                            Teasing at your crown -- rather than all over -- will give you just the right amount of volume.

Rule #2: Skip the comb. 
                             Stylists recommend using a flat-backed brush instead of a comb, the brushes are easier on your locks.

Rule #3: Get creative. 
                      Curl your hair in rollers, slick hair back in a low ponytail or pull a headband into place. I also love it when a basic curled hair has oomph from teased hair. Have fun with your new volume.

All About Perms: The Rules to Live By

Perms have come a long way since the 80s when I sported the very fake-y, 'crimped' perm. These days perms can be fine-tuned to give you exactly the kind of wave you want. You can get perms that just add body to fine, limp hair, you can get loose, sexy waves or you can go for the corkscrew curls that many straight-haired girls covet (and some curly-all-their-lives girls are sick of).


10 Rules to Live by

But who’s the best candidate for perms? How long do they last & most importantly, how do you avoid getting the perm YOU DON’T WANT? The following are 10 rules to live by when it comes to perms in this day & age:
  1. Who should get them? Perms work best on hair that has not been colored. The chemicals are too harsh for double-processed or heavily highlighted hair. Not sure if your hair is a good candidate for a perm? Ask your stylist. You’ll want to tell him or her every chemical process your hair has been through in the last couple years. One way you can find out if your hair is damaged and can't withstand more chemical processing is to do the old float trick. Take a few strands of hair and put them in a glass of water, if they sink, this means your hair is damaged and is soaking up moisture. If the strands float, this means your hair is healthy. You may want to keep it that way and avoid the perm....
    Oh and one other tip: The thicker your hair, the better the perm will take.
  2. How long does a perm take? One to two hours, depending on how long your hair is and how fast your stylist is. Your stylist will apply a single chemical solution to break the structural bonds in your hair, and another called a ‘neutralizer.’ Also keep in mind, a perm takes 28 hours to settle. Give it some time before you get too worried about the end result.
  3. How long does a perm last? Generally about two to six months.
  4. Where do I find a great stylist? First call ahead to your salon (or try several salons) and ask if they have someone who specializes in perms. Since perms aren't as popular as they were in their heyday (the 80s) you'll want someone who knows what she (or he's) doing. You may have to call around a bit to find a specialist. Even in New York City, most salons I've consulted don't have a perm specialist.
  5. Don’t leave home without your picture. You need to take a picture or pictures with you of the type of wave you want. Just telling your stylist what kind of curl leaves you in jeopardy of getting super-dooper tight ringlets. Stylists can control the amount of wave they give you as well as the the part of the hair they want to perm. Yours will need to choose the right-sized rods.
  6. A sit down consultation beforehand is a must. So many stylists will whisk you off to wet your hair without sitting down face-to-face for a good talk. Tell your stylist not only what you want (show the pictures) but what you don't want (i.e. the crimp-like curls of the 80s).
  7. The tightness of the curl depends on the size of the rod. If you re worried you’ll end up with too-tight curls, ask your stylist to show you the types of rods she is using. Keep in mind that tightness of curls can vary on the size of the rod and how long the solution stays in.
  8. Some hair is trickier to curl than others. If you are African- or Asian-American, then you will want someone who specializes in curling your type of hair.
  9. You can prep your hair. To prepare your hair for a perm, you'll want to use a moisturizing conditioner after you shampoo. Avoid deep-conditioning your hair for at least 24 hours before the perm, otherwise the perm may not take.

Get a Hairstyle You Won't Hate

We've all left the salon with a cut that's too short or a color that's just a bit off. Here are some tips to getting the perfect cut and color out of a stylist -- including annoying traits stylists hate in their customers.

Tip No. 1: Pick the right stylist for you. If you have curly hair, for example, find someone who specializes in super-curly cuts. Curly hair is tricky to cut so it's best to call ahead to a large salon and ask for their specialist. Keep in mind that a stylist WITH curly hair will know exactly where you're coming from. The same goes for getting your brown hair colored red (ask for someone who does lots of new redheads), getting your boring hair cut 'funky' and getting a perm (you want someone who does a lot of them).

Tip No. 2: Do your homework Nothing annoys a stylist more than when someone sits down in their chair and tries to explain the cut they want without a picture. (Yes, I can be accused of doing this on my last haircut. Even beauty editors never learn). Imagine if someone said, "I want to look like Cameron Diaz." Cameron Diaz blonde or brunette? Cameron circa 2001 or 2005? And what does she look like these days anyway? Bring a picture or 2 or 3. And make sure the look will suit you.

Tip No. 3: Never say, 'Do whatever you want.' The beauty editor of 'O' magazine tells of the time a world-renowned hairstylist offered to do her hair and she let him do whatever he wanted since the cut was free. Oops. Big mistake. The lesson in this is that it's rarely a good idea to give your hair completely over to a stylist. After all, you don't want to be the practice mannequin for a new look the stylist is dying to try out. Do you?

Tip No. 4: When talking length, show with your hands. One of the most common disappointments I hear about from those with 'Hair Horror Stories,' is the 'I Told Her Three Inches and She Lopped Off Eight' stories. A stylist once taught me a great trick, never say you want 3 inches off, actually take your hand and karate chop it right where you want her/him to go. And feel free to say, 'No higher, please.' My advice: Keep your hand there and have the stylist stand back and soak in just where you want your hair cut to.

Tip No. 5: Schedule in 10 minutes for a consultation. If you're doing your own version of 'Extreme Makeover' and have plans to drastically realign your looks, for heaven's sake do plan a good 10-15 minute consultation with the colorist and stylist. They need to see what your hair looks like dry and styled as you typically style it. This tells them a lot: How much time you really put into your hair each day, how your hair dries and how healthy your ends are.

Tip No. 6: Listen to your stylist. If the woman in your picture has ash blonde hair and you'd make a much better butter blonde, chances you won't know this, but your stylist will. Be sure and ask questions: 'What type of color best suits me?' 'Do you think my hair can look like this picture of Cameron circa 2001?' 'How long will this haircut take me to style in the morning?' And if your stylist says, 'No, I'm sorry, but there's no way I can make you look like Cameron circa 2001,' you'd better listen, because chances are you won't.

Tip No. 7: Be honest with your stylist. Yes, you'd love your stylist to think you'll love your new hairstyle enough to baby it every morning with 10 products, 20 minutes drying time and 15 minutes styling time. However, the truth is, if your morning routine for the past 20 years includes a quick wash followed by a towel dry and ending with a soppy wet ponytail, you'd better tell you're stylist so or you'll end up with a fancy, layered, curling ironed and hairsprayed 'do that takes hours to replicate. Trust me, I've been there.


Tip No. 8: Tip appropriately or beware the bad haircut next time. Proper tip is 15% for your stylist and $5 for the person who washes your hair.
