Astrology [Cancer]

Cancer: Get present to romance now and what better time to do it than at the start of the weekend? This Friday, make your romantic wishes known to your partner or crush, and forget worrying about how he or she will react, or what your friends or family will think. You know what you want, Crab, and it’s time you voiced your desires! If the object of your affection doesn’t return your advances, then hey, at least you’ll know where you stand in your relationship. Consider it a gift from the universe: the pressure of trying too hard to be what someone else wants is too much for anyone to bear, much less a sensitive sign like yourself. Continue rocking that loving feeling into Saturday.

Cancer: thanks to the moon’s presence in Scorpio, your fifth house of romance and passion, you’ll be more in the mood to snuggle with your sweetie in bed. Once you’ve satisfied those love jones, take on that weekend to do list. Doing your body good on Saturday could help ease the emotional burden of Sunday,

Cancer. There’s nothing worse than feeling overwhelmed by responsibilities and knowing that you’re too worn down emotionally and physically to handle them. Structure your schedule for the week ahead in such a way that there’s enough time for work, play, and exercise. Once you fulfil your mind and body’s need for relaxation, getting things done won’t seem so darn difficult.

Beauty Tips “Eat Right”

Eat Right for Your Skin Type

New research shows that the secret to defying age is what you eat! This approach to skin care may seem boring as the switch to an anti-aging, pro-skin diet does not achieve overnight results. As we get older and become more susceptible to oxidative stress, the importance of nutrition in relation to skin health becomes vital. Oxidative stress is a condition where an excess of free radicals inflames skin and causes visible damage. The right foods contain antioxidants and other age-defying substances that help skin ward off free radical damage and prevent common skin conditions ranging from acne to premature ageing.

Most foods we eat fall into two categories namely Pro-inflammatory and Anti-inflammatory. Choosing to eat anti-inflammatory foods can help slow down the ageing process. Pro-inflammatory foods which are bad for the skin inlcude Caffeine, Alcohol, Refined, processed fats, Sugar and Salt. These all accelerate the degradation of the skin’s supportive collagen and elastin. Use of skincare products in addition to a skin-friendly diet and lifestyles will provide the best results. Supplements are also recommended to fill in nutritional gaps.

There are loads of wonder-cosmetics in the market that promise to hold the key to youthful skin with exotic ingredients but in effect it’s like trying to put rocks through a sieve as there is a limit to what the skin can absorb from the outside in. It however can absorb a lot more from the inside out which is the Beauty of food.

Rich coloured fruits such as raspberries and blueberries are also rich. Look for supplements rich in antioxidants and kelp ( a type of seaweed containing lots of protective minerals ).

FOR ACNE
Acne is a chronic low-grade inflammation of the skin. Inflammation is the body’s natural response to damage and injury. To treat acne effectively, you have to target the problems from all directions. The acne-diet relationship has  been strongly established and must be taken seriously for best results regardless of whether your acne is hormonal, stress induced, due to bacterial build-up or dead skin buid-up. Foods rich in Vitamins A, E, B2, B3 and Zinc such as green leafy vegetables, seeds, pulses, whole grains, nuts, eggs and oily fish are key. These contain essential nutrients such as fatty acids, essential fatty acids, protein, vitamins and minerals. These promote healthy skin and good hormone balance. Drinking plenty of water and avoiding toxic foods such as red meat, sugar, caffeine and alcohol are very important. Supplements should also be added.

FOR DULL, DRY AND FLAKY SKIN
A good balance of oil and moisture is crucial for healthy skin. Piling on layers of moisturisers will not give your the skin the healthy glow you most likely seek. It will help somewhat but if you are not moisturised from the inside so to speak, your skin will remain dry. Skin that lacks oil and moisture is often due to a deficient intake of Water and the Essential fatty acids – Omega – 3, 6, and 9. A deficiency of Vitamins A and B which is worsened by drinking too much coffee, tea and alcohol also results in dry flaky skin. I recommend you drink at least 3 litres of water a day, eat Vitamin B rich whole grains such as brown rice, whole grain bread and wholemeal pasta and stay away from refined processed foods. Also take orange and red coloured carotene containing fruits and vegetables such as Mangoes, Papaya and Carrots. Saturated fats found in fried, processed foods, excess red meat and dairy should also be avoided. Oily fish should be eaten at least 3 times a week for good levels of essential fatty acids. If you can’t eat fish that often take an essential fatty acid supplement.

FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
Sensitive skin includes that which becomes red, tender and tight when exposed to extremes of temperature and direct sunlight as well as conditions like Eczema, Psoriasis and Rosacea. The diet can greatly improve all of these conditions. Omega-3 fatty acids help soothe such skin and fights inflammation. Diet should be as natural as possible thus avoiding preserved, refined and processed foods. Caffeine Sugar and Alchohol should also be limited. These will help improve liver function which when adversely affected may give rise to these skin conditions. Lots of Betacarotene containing foods should be eaten such as brightly coloured fruit and vegetables. Dark leafy greens are also recommended as they contain zinc, selenium and fibre which help reduce toxic overload. An MSM containing supplement is beneficial as this easily absorbable form of sulphur strengthens the skin’s supportive structures.

Hair Tips

Whenever you feel like a nice sophisticated up do, a bun is the quickest and easiest way to go. Make sure your hair is moisturized( usually a little hair silicon will do, DON’T overdo it). You can comb it all back or part it on the side, whatever suits your face better. Now the actual bun is not hard to achieve, take the hair, twist it, Roll it at the back and start putting pins all over to secure the bun. Make sure it’s well pinned so it won’t come loose. Use pins that will be camouflaged by your hair, so they are not visible. Shake your head after you are done, if the bun is intact, then you have achieved the look! Now go out there and rock it 🙂

The Perfect Way To Build Your Wardrobe

Building your wardrobe so that it’s fabulous, functional, and comfortable and fashion forward can be a little tricky and at time daunting, but it’s not impossible! Growing up many of us have loved clothes, shoes and accessories-basically, anything to do with fashion! My favourite thing about knowing how to build a wardrobe is having fun mixing and matching pieces to create a unique style of my own.  I love being able to create different looks dependent upon my mood of the day.  Think of it as a game like when you were a child playing dress up. Also, i have always loved giving my family fashion and decorating advice warranted or not.  If you are looking for some tips on how to build your wardrobe, keep reading because you have just stumble on the number 1 Fashion Clue Tip.

1. Clear Out Your Closet.
Updating and clearing out your closet is a crucial part of building a wardrobe. Toss out or better yet, donate items that are worn out, outdated or no longer fit you. That includes items that show signs of wear and tear such as piling, stretched out sweaters and tops, or spots on dresses and jeans, tops with underarm stains that you save only to wear “under” things and items you haven’t worn in over three years.

2. Consider Your Lifestyle
When selecting the pieces to hang in your closet and learning how to build a wardrobe, consider your lifestyle. Do you have a job? Do you attend many formal functions? Do you lunch with the ladies often? Does your day to day life include small children or require you to be very active? What are your social habits? These are all things to think about when buying clothes and accessories.

3. Get Your Basics
Every good wardrobe must have a few basics in it. Basics are items that you wear often, and can be easily mixed and matched with the other pieces in your closet. Basics are those timeless go to pieces. Basics include a pair of great jeans, a white button down shirt, black pumps, a little black dress, a neutral blazer, a cardigan, flats in a neutral colour, a pencil skirt, a pair of dress slacks, a few statement pieces of jewellery. A great bag, a perfect coat, and a dinner date dress. You will be glad you have these basics on hand! 

4. Start with Neutrals
When it comes to fashion, colour is great and it’s a big influence too. But you still need to make sure you have plenty of neutral colours in your closet as well. Neutral colours include black, brown, white, tan, camel, navy, gray and cream. With these neutrals, the outfits you can build are endless. Just add one or two pops of colour here and there. Neutrals are great choices for work clothing, travelling or for a bag, coat or shoes.

5. Mix it up with Current Trends
Trends are a fabulous addition to your wardrobe.  However, knowing how to build a wardrobe means knowing that you shouldn’t spend too much money on the latest and greatest.  Since trends come and go and you don’t want to build your entire wardrobe based upon them, otherwise you will constantly need to update your wardrobe. A few key trendy items each season will do the job! There are several trends each season to choose from.  Select the one that works best with your existing wardrobe, your lifestyle and your mood of the moment  It can be as easy as dressing in an outfit comprised of all basics and you add a fun pair of trendy shoes and belt or jewellery or bag.  Really, it’s that easy. Stay current, but know the difference between styles and trends.

6. Make Sure You Have Balance
A wardrobe made up entirely of jeans and Tshirts or entirely of button downs and fitted pencil skirts or entirely one colour theme won’t do you very much good. There’s not much style flexibility and you will get bored quickly. The best advice i can give you on how to build a wardrobe is to make sure you have a balanced selection in your closet. A good balance includes casual attire, casual dress attire, work attire, dress attire and formal attire. That’s not to say you can’t have your signature look.

7. Learn to Accessorize, Layer, and Try Combinations.
Knowing how to build a wardrobe means that you need to know how to accessorize effectively. It’s amazing the difference a small stud earring verses a long dangling earring can make to an outfit.  I can’t emphasize enough accessorizing makes all the difference. Imagine your outfit as the canvas and then paint with accessories. Layering is also an important element. Layering adds depth, personality and character to your outfits. Plus, it helps you transition easily from night to day. Some ideas for layering include tanks under Tshirts, camisoles under blazers, or collared shirts under vests. Be creative try putting together items from your wardrobe and see how they look together. A plain black dress may look dated or plain on its own but add a belt and it looks great or maybe that belt doesn’t work but another one is perfect or try a some chunky jewellery instead.  It’s all about trying different combination and seeing what works. Grab a friend and a glass of wine and give each other tips. Have fun with it.

8. Incorporate Personality
While your job or lifestyle may require a certain dress standard, always remember to incorporate some personality into your sense of style. There is no need to be boring or try and clone someone else’s style exactly. Be yourself! Add personal touches to your outfits.

9. Check the Fit
A good tailor can make or break your outfit.  When purchasing additional items to your wardrobe don’t make the mistake of thinking a little bit of snugness or looseness in a garment will be “ok”.  Part of achieving a well put together look means having all your clothes fit your body well. Thus flattering your form. Find a good tailor to let out or take in garments that aren’t the proper fit. Make them your new best friend, really. This will be one of the best things you can do.

10. Don’t Be A Fashion Groupie
Whatever you purchase don’t just buy it because everyone else is.  Like your mother always said “If your friends jumped off a bridge would you?” And please don’t buy it just to follow what the media suggests or your favourite stars are wearing.  Simply ask yourself “Does this fit my needs of the moment?”  “Is this me or how I want to portray myself?”
   Mix it up, keep it simple, and above all, have fun with it. There’s always tomorrow.  After all, it’s only fashion and it’s meant to be enjoyed.  Come on people it’s not life or death decisions we’re making here.  Remember dressing is just an expression of who you are or who you feel like you are at that precise moment in time and it’s constantly changing.

Fashion Error :: Visible Panty Lines [VPL]

Visible Panty Lines

Visible Panty Lines

Visible panty lines (VPLs) can ruin any good outfit, while invisible panty lines will help to enhance your looks by making your figure seem sleeker and sexier. Many clothes hide your undergarments, but some outline them a little too well this usually happens with thinner material or tight fitting clothing. Dresses, skirts, and slacks are the main culprits that show off your perfectly outlined behind.

-Understand What Causes Visible Panty Lines.
VPLs occur at the point where your backside cheeks are intersected by tight elastic of the panties. The backside cheeks have little place else to go but to bulge out either side, while the elastic dips in, creating a visible indented line or more.

-Select Underwear Suited To Your Backside Shape.
There are so many choices nowadays, that something will work the best for your shape, although it may take a few tries to hit on the best fit and style. The most important thing is to purchase panties that fit! Make sure that when you are picking out underwear, the panty covers your buttocks properly, at least to the extent of coverage the panties are supposed to give and that they do not dig in too tight. Equally, if you choose underwear that is too loose, it can easily wrinkle up inside your clothes leaving you lacking a smooth, sleek look and just showing wrinkles and bumps.

*For a boyish figure: Try a boy cut panty which will avoid cutting your rear. Boy shorts provide full coverage, and you can get them in elastic or mesh to better avoid panty lines. These materials prevent your underwear from bunching up under your clothes and leave you with a full coverage, smooth look.

*For a fuller figure: Try a laser-cut or high cut style of panty.

-Choose The Right Fabric.
Underwear that is less likely to create VPLs are panties that shape themselves best to your body. Elastic and spandex panties will work well to create a seamless fit, whereas cotton panties will often give a rumpled look, along with the VPL. However, it is clear that cotton panties are comfortable, and most women have them in abundance, so part of the trick is to avoid wearing them with outfits where they will definitely show. Given that much cotton underwear has thicker elastic, this is more likely to show through many of your outfits, so be sure to check in the mirror or ask a trusted friend for honest advice as to how it looks. Most elastic and spandex underwear uses a thinner band, helping to avoid panty lines.

-Take Care With Colour.
While bright pink panties with a dark outfit might be fine, the image changes rapidly when worn under white or other light clothing! Suddenly, much more is revealed than expected! Match your underwear to your skin tones when wearing light clothing. Flesh coloured underwear blends in with your skin, leaving invisible panty lines. Keep in mind that flesh coloured underwear means it closely matches your skin tone. If it is too much lighter or darker than your skin tone, then the VPLs will still show through.

-Opt For A Thong Or A Similar Alternative.
This is the number one option to avoid panty lines. Thongs simply don’t have the lines to show, making the choice easy for many women. Be sure to check out the rear view when you sit or squat those positions tend to expose half the thong if you’re wearing low riders. However, there are women who don’t like to wear thongs, and for those women, there are a few other options:

*Shape your body with your panties. Body shaping underwear is another great option to a thong. This style of underwear starts higher up on your waist and comes down to your mid thighs. Elastic or spandex styles give you a smooth and sleek look. It can also have some constructing properties that can suck in unwanted bulges, making you look and feel great.

*Consider wearing boy shorts, boxer shorts, or French knickers. These are a great option if you don’t want to wear a thong the longer leg will eliminate panty lines that cut across the butt. But if your pants are tight, the edges still may show.

*Go commando! If you’re brave enough to do this, simply go commando don’t wear underwear. This is the only way to know that there are no panty lines whatsoever and it can feel rather secretly sexy. However, many women feel uncomfortable doing this, and would be happier wearing a thong or another type of underwear. You could also go “faux commando” by ordering disposable cotton patches that adhere to the inside of your pants, allowing you the freedom of no underwear without any discomfort.

-Test Drive Panties Made Of Paper Thin Microfiber.
This is a light, stretchy material that eliminates bulging

-Take Extra Special Care With Tight Clothing.
Tight clothing will always bring out a VPL if there is one to bring out. The answer to this is to wear a thong or a laser cut brief. These won’t dig into your flesh and you’ll have no VPL.

How To Wear The Right Make Up

Everybody is worried about how they look. Looking great doesn’t have to take too much time or effort. All you have to do is know what you’re doing.

First Before You Begin
-Determine what type of skin you have: oily, combination, perfectly moisturized, dry, etc. Many cosmetic counters have someone there that can do a preliminary analysis of your skin and recommend some products.

Applying Face Makeup
-Start with a freshly washed face, (and hands, too). You want your face to be a clear and smooth canvas for you, the “artist,” to do your art. Use a good deep cleansing mask. Do not exfoliate if you have oily or sensitive skin. It will spread bacteria around your face from the already existing blemishes. Use antibacterial soap if you have acne. Also be sure that you replace the towel you use to dry your face every week. Lastly, apply toner by taking a cotton pad that has been dampened in warm water and sweep it over your face. Toner will restore the pH level of your skin and pick up any remaining dirt. Make sure you look pretty
-Massage a light moisturizer into your face no matter what skin type you have. Always avoiding the eye area! You could also apply your moisturizer with your foundation brush or sponge if you have one. This will help oily skin dry, and dry skin become smoother. Wait a few minutes for it to soak into your skin

-Apply a foundation primer before you apply any foundation or tinted moisturizer. The foundation primer will smooth out the skin surface, make applying foundation easier, and make your makeup last longer.

-Apply a sheer foundation that matches your skin tone. Tip: If a liquid foundation has SPF in it, it’s NOT good for taking flash photography. Use the ones without SPF instead if you don’t want to look too flashed out on your face.

-Wear illuminator to make your skin appear youthful and dewy compared with dull, matte makeup. Skin illuminaters come in powder, cream, mousse, etc. L’Oréal, Revlon, Neutrogena, and other brands make them it’s like make up with tiny particles that reflect light.

*Use a makeup sponge or wedge, starting around the hairline and working your way down. (Use the wedge for this routine because you can be more precise about where the make up goes.) If you want a proper look that looks as if it has been done by a professional makeup artist, try using a foundation brush.

*Remember to apply the makeup all the way down to your throat area and keep blending so you can’t see where the make up ends. Nothing is worse than looking like you have a mask on your face!

*Around the eye area, do very light strokes inward, toward the inner corner of your eye. Don’t apply it to your upper eyelid! All of the professional makeup artists say not to apply foundation to this area. This is why you need a foundation that matches your skin. If you want foundation to darken your skin then try putting it above your eyes, and see what you like. Be gentle with this part, because the skin is very delicate and sensitive here.

-Apply concealer to any red or discolored spots. In the corners of your eyes, where it’s red, around the nostrils, and under the eyes (to make you look more awake) are good places for this. Do this after applying foundation, so you don’t use too much. First apply the concealer, then pat very lightly with your finger to blend. Only apply concealer to the area that you want to conceal. Afterward, use the wedge to blend the concealer in with the foundation. Stand back away from your mirror to see if you have effectively concealed the areas. Try to stand about the distance away from the mirror that you stand away from people when you talk to them. Another way to conceal blemishes is to pat green concealer on the blemishes and red spots, then put foundation over top the green reduces redness

-Apply a loose powder all over the face using a powder brush. Pat it into the powder; then, with a paper towel, tap the brush so the excess falls off the brush. Lightly brush across the whole face. Use a powder puff (small) to apply powder on the upper lid. Apply a bronzer to your forehead, cheeks, and chin, to give a sun kissed look,if wanted.

-Highlight your brow bone, cheek bones, and cupid’s bow by applying a light powder just below the brow, and to the highest part of your cheek.

-Apply a small amount of blush to the apples of your cheeks. Smile so you can see the apple of your cheek. Start the application at the apple and drag the blush outward toward your temple, following your cheek bone. Blend the colour down a bit below your cheekbone in towards your earlobe.

-Contour your face, especially if you have “hidden” cheekbones. To do so you will need a brown tone of powder, don’t make it ultra brown, but a milk chocolatey kind of colour. Apply a bit on the brush and apply it under your cheek bones, starting from the temple and going down until underneath the apple of your cheek. Don’t make it too obvious as it’s meant to look like a shadow. Then, on top of your cheek bones take a white or really light skin tone powder and apply it, right between your eye and your cheek bone.

-Take a fluffy powder brush and blend everything together, so that there are no visible lines or excess powders.

Applying Eye Makeup

-Line your eyes. Line it with a brown or soft black liner. For a more appealing look, apply liner with very light strokes to the upper lid, stroking toward the outer corner of the eye. To blend, use an angle brush. For a more natural look, dip the angle brush in some of your darker eyeshadow. Use a very light amount, or use the applicator tip. For the bottom lid, use a very light amount on the outer corner.

-Put on the eyeshadow. Most eye colours come with two or three colours on the palette. The lighter color is for the lid. The darker color is for the crease on the lid, just below the eye bone. Apply the lighter tone first to the lid, spreading upwards to near the crease. For this, use the applicator that came inside the package. For the darker color, using your eyeshadow brush, dip into eye color and tap the brush to lose the excess. Apply inside the crease of the eye. You can find the crease by looking straight ahead. Your eye makes its own crease. Blend the colour toward the outer corner of your eye. Sometimes you can blend it around to the bottom lid, but very lightly. The lightest colour is for under the brow bone. Use the applicator to apply right on the brow bone just under the brow line. Make sure to use the larger eyeshadow brush to blend all the colors.

-Use eyebrow pencil colour that is very close to your natural eyebrow color. Here you just want to fill in missing areas. It might behoove you to visit a makeup person that can arch your eyebrows correctly. If you’ve never done it yourself, have someone do it for you. Your eyebrow should look very natural. If you do apply eyebrow pencil to any part of your eyebrow, use the angled brush to blend it into your brow with very light strokes.

-Use a lash curler before applying any mascara. There are several mascaras to choose from depending on the look you want. If you have short lashes, use a mascara that will add length,if you have thin lashes, use a volumizing mascara. Never pump your mascara brush in and out of the mascara. This causes air pockets. Dip the brush in the mascara once and lightly wipe off the excess onto a paper towel. Looking downward, apply to the top lash with upward strokes. Start with the inner part and work your way outward. Do both eyes with two coats, then let dry. After a few seconds, do the bottom lids. It’s better to apply to the very outer part of the lash on the bottom lid. This will open your eye more. An inexpensive way to curl your eye lashes is to take the brush from an older mascara, and use it , after you’ve washed MOST of the mascara off.

Applying Lipstick

-Apply lip balm, primer, or sealer. This will help make all lip products applied last longer and much more vibrant

-Line your lips with a liner that matches your lip color. Make sure your lip liner pencil is sharpened, but not too sharp. Line around the natural line of your lips. Trying to create a fuller lip by dragging the lip pencil outside your lip line is for professionals. Usually it makes you look like you’re just plain bad at applying makeup! After applying your lip pencil to your lip line, rub your lips together so the lip pencil colour spreads inside your lips.

-Apply lipstick or lip gloss with a brush. It will spread it evenly. It’s a good idea to brush your lip brush in your lipstick, then some of your lip gloss for a nice light shine. Blot your freshly painted lips lightly with a tissue. This will make it last longer

-Use a pressed powder to lightly powder the rest of your face, and the area under your eyes. Use very light pressure. Keep your pressed powder in your purse for touch ups
