How to Purchase a Handbag or Purse that Compliment Your Figure

Purchase a Handbag or Purse that Compliment Your Figure

For most of us women, we buy handbags because we like the way it looks and we find them in design or style that suits our taste. But if you think about it a handbag that fits your figure will be appealing and make you look slimmer or more stylish. You should purchase bags that compliment your figure. When you buy a handbag, you need to think of it as if you are buying a pair of jeans. You need the right fit.

The right handbag could flatter your figure, or it could ruin the entire ensemble you have assembled if it seems to be out of place for your particular image. When it comes to choosing any specific bag for that matter, your shape is a significant consideration. You need to select a bag shape that is opposite your body type.

The Tall and Thin Woman

As an example, for someone who is very thin and tall a round hobo bag (explained here) would compliment your figure. This style slouchy kind of rounded bag compliments taller women.

The Short and Stout Woman

For those who may be stout and short, clutches that are rectangular and long or tall would suit well. However, while a bag’s shape should be opposite your body type the bag’s size needs to be in proportion to your size or figure. It wouldn’t look appealing to someone with a large figure to be carrying a very cute and small shoulder bag for then it would emphasize how big she is.

Think about Buying a Bag that Compliments your Shape

In the same way, a small or short girl carrying a very big handbag spells disaster. The huge size of the bag would make her look more short and small. Certain bags like a shoulder bag, for example, could accentuate a figure depending on the length of the strap. A shoulder bag that would be around the hips would give definition and draw attention to your curvaceous hips.

Some Important Tips

  1. When buying handbags be patient and take time to try them on.
  2. Looking at yourself in the mirror just as if you are trying on clothes.
  3. Don’t be drawn to trendy bags that do not look good on you.
  4. No matter how great looking the bag will be it wouldn’t do any good if it doesn’t fit you nor flatter you in any way.

Get your drink on ladies a handbag that dispenses wine?

27 Mar

A Wine Dispensing Handbag?

dispenses winedispenses wine

Hey Ladies,

I came across this very different fashion accessory. A handbag that has a compartment that allows you to put wine in your handbag and then a pop out spigot that dispenses wine or other beverage. Crazy but was featured on USA today. For those more discerning women maybe water or ice tea can also be put in it. But is that any fun.

The Perfect Order To Apply Makeup

26 Mar

apply makeup

 

When you need to apply makeup, it will help to apply in a certain order, especially if you are untrained and doing it for yourself at home. To get the perfect balance right, apply makeup in a specific order of product, which will allow you to build and blend to create a flawless finish:

Step One: Eyeshadow

Always start by applying eyeshadow, as the loose powder can sometimes spill on to the cheeks if you are using a wide, soft brush (and you really should be using a wide, soft brush rather than the applicators that come with eyeshadows).

Step Two: Eyeliner and Mascara

As these two products are the most difficult to get right – just having an unsteady hand can derail the look – it’s easier to apply these before you put facial make up on, just in case you go wrong and need to remove them to have another try. Trying to remove eye make up without displacing foundation is tricky, so get the difficult eye products out of the way first.

Step Three: Liquid foundation / concealer.

Next, apply your liquid foundation and concealer. Blend thoroughly with a sponge to achieve even, flawless coverage.
(Quick Tip: If you use a primer, obviously apply this before foundation/concealer).

Step Four: Loose facial powder.

Choose a color close to your natural skin tone and remove the ‘shine’ that foundation and concealer can cause, using a large round brush in circular motions.

Step Six: Blusher

Smile so the apples of your cheek are most prominent, then apply blusher sparingly.

Step Seven: Lipstick and lipliner

Put the finishing touches in place, and you’re ready to go.

Making Products Work For Those With Pale Skin

26 Mar

Pale Skin

If you have light, pale skin, it can be an absolute nightmare trying to find facial make up products that suit your tone. For many women, even the lightest shade in make up ranges is often too dark or too orange-colored. Despite this being a continued problem for literally thousands of people, it is an issue that the cosmetics industry has failed to target. Although specific makeup lines for people with pale skin do exist, they tend to be pricey or sacrifice quality of the product in the hopes that the lightness of color will be reason enough for people to buy.

Address the Pale Skin Issue

There are a couple of ways of getting around the problem. First, you could try using a facial bronzer. Used sparingly, a bronzer will add enough color to your face to allow you to use normal foundations and concealers, though the effect can be patchy if not blended thoroughly. There’s also the issue of having your facial skin tone match the rest of your body, and if you cannot be bothered to fully self-tan regularly, this isn’t an option.

It is worth trying to ‘dilute’ the color of a facial make up the product, to make it paler and therefore more suitable for your skin tone. Remove some of the normal product from its tube or tub, and then mix in a white facial moisturizer. This should spread the pigment of the foundation around, and make the overall effect appear lighter and more suitable. Just remember that you may need to use extra face powder, as the added moisturizer may make your face appear shinier than normal.

Deep Dark and Black Hair Care Tips

19 Mar

Black HairThere’s nothing more luxurious than having sleek, shiny black hair. It’s a statement of beauty and glamour. A woman with black hair can very well wear it down and allow it to show its natural shine. There’s nothing more camera worthy than going down the red carpet with flowing black hair that waves with your every step. Black hair care is obviously one of the things these women do. They make sure that they take good care of their black hair for everyone to see.

Periodic Washing

Black hair care is done by washing it once every three days. This makes sure that the scalp is clean up to the hair tips. Even if you don’t do excessive styling, this is a number one hygiene rule that must be observed. Clean, beautiful black hair shines remarkably when the light hits it. This will also ensure that you can easily run your hand through it and prevent hair problems like dandruff or such.

There is not one single shampoo that is meant for all people who has black hair. One good black hair care tip that we can advise is to make sure that you are using the shampoo that is meant for your hair type. Whether your hair is dry, frizzy, straight, curly, or such, find the shampoo that is meant for your hair texture. Not because the label says that it’s meant for black hair means it is meant for your hair. In this way, not only are you keeping your hair clean and dandruff free, but you are also making sure that your hair is well treated with the shampoo you use. Be wary of the chemicals that they have on the shampoo. Make sure that they only contain mild ingredients.

Shampooing

Hand in hand with choosing the right shampoo for your hair, next in line is getting the right conditioner to moisturize your black hair. This is one of the hair care tips that one must not miss. Aside from washing and shampooing your hair, make sure that you condition it through and through to keep it healthy. Not only does it make your hair soft and shiny, but it also keeps the hair from getting brittle and dry. Shampooing is not enough. One must also use conditioners to make sure that the hair is well kept.

Brushing

When caring for your black hair, always brush it with a soft brush that is compatible with your hair type. Slowly brush your hair to avoid breaking them and allowing natural hair oils to distribute itself from the roots to the tips. Multiple brushstrokes a day will keep it healthy and shiny. As you comb your hair, divide it into manageable portions so that you can easily work through possible knots.

When drying your hair after taking a bath, do not rub it harshly against the towel. This will increase the tangle in your hair, making it harder to comb and more vulnerable to breakage. Pat, it gently with the towel and let it dry naturally.

Be smart

Do not go out of the house when you’re hair is still wet. Not only will this cause your hair to get more ruined with the wind but it also makes it vulnerable to dust and pollution. Drying your hair gently before going out or using a gentle hair dryer should do the trick.

Tips for Buying the Perfect Wig

19 Mar

WigWigs have many functional uses, namely when a women want to change her style for a special occasion or event, but also to cover and conceal thinning chair or a balding due to cancer or other serious condition. Before investing in a wig, here are some tips to keep in mind to help you find the perfect wig.

What to look for

Wigs have many different styles and price ranges. The pricier the wig is, the better quality. However, shop around and check online feedback and reviews of wig merchant. If you invest in a quality hair piece, you should expect years of good wear.

Why buy a Quality Hair Piece

When deciding to purchase a wig, you should understand how you plan to use it. Inexpensive wig hairpieces are also not finely wefted (wefting means the sewing of the hair to a net that you put on your hair). That means that more hair is sewn into one weft of the wig instead of distributed throughout the wig evenly resulting in a baby doll hair look if you’re not careful. If the wig is for a one or two-time special occasions during the year, you can get away with a lesser quality piece as it will not have a lot of wear and tear that will allow it to last longer. Keep in mind when you purchase inexpensive wigs, they will almost always be synthetic and may be harder to match your hair color if you buy a partial wig. Also, keep in mind as stated, inexpensive wigs just are not made as well so be prepared to be gentle handling them even with low use.

Synthetic Wigs

If you are looking to style a wig, synthetic is not very flexible. You can not color, or curl it with heat as it will melt. This means that your styling options with an inexpensive synthetic wig are limited.

Real Human Hair Wigs

If you want flexibility and a truly natural look, a wig made of human hair is the way to go. Natural hair wigs are versatile and durable particularly if you plan on wearing it often. Human hair wigs are more expensive, but they pay for themselves over time. They are flexible in that you can color, cut, curl and perm it just like your real hair. Additionally really human hair wigs look natural in sunlight, while synthetic wigs sometimes look unnatural in sunlight.

Natural hair wigs to vary widely in price and quality. They vary according to quality and length of the hair. Longer hair cost more and may be more expensive due to the better-made brands.

Look for wig hairpieces that are finely weaved and light. The wig should allow air to circulate through the wig and onto the scalp. This is for comfort and the well being of your hair underneath. It also provides an opportunity for your hair to breath while wearing the wig. Wigs should be comfortable and should feel natural.

Before buying a wig, investigate all of your options carefully. Choosing a good quality wig may save you money in the long run because you will probably never have to replace it.

How to Choose the Best Lip Gloss

18 Mar

Lip Gloss

Finding a lip gloss that most accurately fits the lip color and lip tone one must be patient and experiment with different colors and brands. These tips can improve your chances of finding the gloss that most accurately fits your lips.

Experiment with Different Brands

There are various brands of lip gloss, and also the costs of those brands vary widely. A $7 lip gloss bought at an area pharmacy isn’t essentially inferior in quality compared to an $18 Poole lip gloss compact. You may appreciate the feel, smoothness of the gloss or feel its heaviness, stickiness, or icky-ness. High-end lip glosses do supply a super-glossy feel that virtually glides on the lips; there are inexpensive lip glosses like NYX or Glossier Lip Gloss which have an enormous assortment. Do your research to find the best brand that fits your lip color and even has a neutral smell.

Lip gloss does not last very long

– Reapply periodically to preserve the dye
– Some brands, even the most effective ones, fade off after a few hours
– Be unique and decide on a lip color that compliments your lipstick and helps longevity

RELATED: Bright Bold Lips

Tips for selecting

Choose a lip gloss based on your lip color since the color of your lips affects the color of the gloss applied to it. Never choose based on how it looks on other people. It may look good on them, but they may have thin, pale lips while another may have full thick lips. Lip gloss color show differently on different people. Your natural lip color will play an essential part of your lips. The pigmentation of the gloss is blended with your natural skin tone to arrive at how it looks, meaning continue to experiment with the best lipgloss color and brand until you have found the perfect match.

Just because it glitters isn’t always good

Make sure that the lip gloss feels comfortable. Lipgloss glitter that feels gritty or sharp should not be used. No matter what material used lip gloss should go on smooth. There is grittier lip gloss on the market and really should not be used as they are not healthy for great looking supple lips.

Be realistic; lip gloss gives lips a smooth shimmer; it does not provide anyone with kissable cottony-soft lips. Lip balms do that. Balms are not shiny. But it makes lips feel supple. Apply a balm over the lips first before putting on a lip gloss; this is to moisturize the lips. The lip gloss is supposed to be well, glossy.
