Winter weather is known for wreaking havoc on your lips. There are ways to keep your lips soft and moisturized during the wet, cold months, and using the right lip balm tops the list. Lip balm works like a salve to relieve and prevent dry, chapped lips. The product works by providing a wax-like layer on the lip surface to seal in moisture and protect the lips from external exposure. Since lips contain a thin layer of skin, dry air, cold temperatures and wind all have a negative effect on your mouth.

Here are 5 top lip balm products that work by protecting your pretty pout, and promising staying power. Sure, you may need to swipe on a second or third layer throughout the day for optimal results, but at night you should be able to get away with only one application before you fall asleep.

Top 5 Lip Balms

• ChapStick: ChapStick is definitely one of the most recognized brands of lip balm on the market. ChapStick can nurse cracked, dry lips back to health with only a swipe or two. ChapStick Moisturizer Skin Protectant with sunscreen works wonders to keep your lips soft and smooth.

• Maybelline Baby Lips Glow Lip Balm: Maybelline Baby Lips Glow Lip Balm keeps your lips moisturized without leaving a waxy or filmy residue. The pink Glow version leaves your lips with a perfect pink tint, as well as a glossy shine.

• Blistex: Blistex offers a full range of lip care products for all your lip needs. Whether you’re looking for a lip balm to moisturize, hydrate, or prevent chapped and cracked lips, you’ll find a Blistex product that works.

• Nivea Smoothness Lip Care: Nivea Smoothness Lip Care does just that; this balm goes on smooth and shiny without feeling sticky or greasy. Prevent dry lips with only a light application.

• Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm: Don’t let the word Beeswax fool you.  Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm goes on smoothly, never goopy, and leaves no feeling of a waxy layer on your lips. This lip balm has been around for generations, leaving satisfied users with hydrated, moisturized lips.

Soft, supple, kissable lips are what we all strive to maintain; not only in winter months but all year. Most lip balms can be applied with your finger, or the product comes in a lipstick-style tube where it can be spread over the lips directly and evenly. Simply carry a container in your purse and apply a coat as necessary, ensuring your lips stay soft and smooth.

This winter treat your lips to long lasting-lip balms! Youf soft, smooth, silky lips will thank you!

Eyelash extensions are used to enhance the length, curliness, fullness and thickness of natural eyelashes. The extensions may be made from several materials including mink, synthetic, or horse hair. The main method of applying the eyelash extensions is by using an adhesive glue to individually stick the extensions to the eyelash line. False eyelashes and eyelash extensions are not the same thing. In the United States, eyelash extension services can range in price from $100 to $500 and can be applied in various beauty salons and spas.

Long, lovely eyelashes are gorgeous, becoming and dazzling. Lustrous eyelashes are one of the main features to a beautiful face. For those of you that adore and wear eyelash extensions or false eyelashes, one would wonder why you would ever want to take them off. But like all makeup and beauty accessories, what goes on must eventually be removed.

Whether your eyelash extensions are applied yourself with a kit or put on by a professional stylist, they are removed much the same way. Eyelash extensions are attached to your natural lashes with semi-permanent glue or with a sticky tape attached to the extensions. You must be careful when removing them so that you don’t pull out your natural lashes, but the removal process can be quick and easy.

Easy Ways to Remove Eyelash Extensions:

• Steam and Oil: Remove your eye makeup, using a gentle eye makeup remover or petroleum jelly. Heat a bowl of water and steam your face. The hot steam will help loosen the eyelash extensions. With a wet cotton ball, wipe olive oil on your lashes until the extensions peel off easily. Rinse with warm water.
• Glue Remover: You can purchase glue remover at most drug stores, beauty supply stores and salons. Remove your eye makeup and apply the glue remover with a wet cotton ball. Move the cotton swab across your lash line, working from the outer corner to the inner corner with a gentle motion. The remover will dissolve the glue. Pull off the extensions and rinse with warm water.
• Professional Removal: Eyelash extensions can be tricky to remove without pulling out your natural lashes. By using a pro health and beauty expert to remove your eyelash extensions, you can be assured your own lashes will stay intact and strong.

Eyelash extension removal made easy!

Makeup and artificial eyelashes

Eyelash extensions give the appearance of wearing mascara without the messy clumps and smudging of makeup. Generally, a single lash is applied to each natural lash and will generally last for 3 to 4 weeks.

For lush, luxurious, lovely eyelashes, eyelash extensions take the cake! And with an easy removal process, why wait?

We all have our favorite pieces of jewelry that we love wearing almost every single day. It can be a ring or a bracelet, and it becomes almost a part of us. We feel bare if for some reason we forget to put on that particular piece of jewelry when getting ready. Sometimes our jewelry, especially cosmetic jewelry, will begin to look shabby and outdated. What’s a jewelry lover to do when your favorite items need a little TLC to once again sparkle and shine? Bling up your bling with some jewelry paint!

If you wish to change the color of artificial gems to give them a polished appearance, nail polish is the product to use. You can choose any color you like to repair or repaint the jewelry with detailed precision. Using nail art and decals is another way to go. You can add beads, gems, rhinestones, etc. to existing pieces of jewelry and your worn out earrings, bracelets, rings, and necklaces will shine once again.

For larger pieces of jewelry, like long necklaces or chokers, spray paint works like magic in transforming your bling and giving it a new appearance. Chunky jewelry and bangles are great pieces for spray paint makeovers. Hang the jewelry so that you can access all sides of it with spray paint. Lightly spray with your color(s) choice, and you’ll feel like you have brand new jewelry.

Transform your bling with jewelry paint!

Like all fashion, jewelry styles come and go. You can keep up with all the latest bling trends by upcycling your jewelry with paint, decals, gems, and beads to transform your existing, coveted, adored pieces.

Paint your bling: a new necklace, a new ring!

So don’t throw away any jewelry that is tarnished or chipped. Merely by painting and redecorating your existing bling, you’ll have a brand new everything!

Jewelry queen! Just like magic, you own new jewelry begging to be worn and seen!

All glamour girls know that one secret to a perfect makeup job is applying just the right amount of concealer and foundation to your face. Both concealer and foundation are used to make the skin appear more uniform in color and blemish free. Generally, concealers are more heavily pigmented than foundations, and can be used alone, or applied underneath a light coat of foundation.

Although concealers and foundations add a gorgeous glow to your skin when applied correctly, if applied too heavily and the cosmetics don’t match your skin tone, they can turn into makeup that cakes up! So how do you apply the perfect amount of concealer and foundation that makes your skin look youthful and near makeup free?

How to Avoid Makeup Cake Face:

1. Do not apply a thick foundation over your entire face. Foundation is meant to even out your skin tone, but when applied it should be almost invisible. Dot concealer on any ruddy or blemished areas, then cover up uneven spots like the cheeks, around the nose and the chin with foundation.
2. As we age our skin tends to lose moisture. This can lead to makeup cake face. Keep your skin as moisturized as possible by drinking lots of water and applying a moisturizing cream to your face underneath the concealer and foundation.
3. Apply a foundation primer. Foundation primers settle into your pores, fine lines and wrinkles and even out blemishes so that your foundation glides on smoothly.
4. Make sure your concealer and foundation match your skin tone.

Whether you adore a snowy winter wonderland or you’re more built for fun under the sun, the time has come when everyone is getting their bathing suit beach-body on.

It’s time to tone up, shape up, and fire up your energy, stamina, and body.

2. Healthy Eating: Eat a healthy diet consisting of proteins, carbohydrates, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals.

3. Exercise (Not a dirty word) – Exercise is good for the heart, the mind, and the spirit. It rejuvenates and revitalizes your mood and energy level.

Exercises that Will Help Tone Your Body and Flit Away Flab:

Stability Ball Chest Press – Sit on a stability ball, holding a 5 to 8-pound weight in each hand. Slowly walk forward and roll the ball under your body, until only your head and shoulders are supported. Repeat 12-15 reps.

Single Leg Lift and Row – Stand with the left foot in front of the right foot, hold a 5 to 8-pound weight in your right hand, keeping your arms by your sides. Lean forward, and raise the right foot off the ground. Extend the weight toward the ground, then raise it to your hip. Repeat on the left side.

Push-Ups – If you prefer men’s push-ups, extend your body face down with the toes of your feet and the palm of your hands on the ground, keeping your legs and torso off the floor. Using your arms, move your body up and down, bending your elbows. For women’s push-ups, rest your knees on the floor, keeping your torso off the ground. Using your arms, move your body up and down, bending your elbows.

Aren’t you a cutie, you bathing suit beach-body beauty?

Sometimes last minute makeovers are the most fun to do. Why not contact Mobile Styles and let them transform you? It’s a sure win for you!

The color green is the color between blue and yellow on the color wheel. Green is created by combining the colors of blue and yellow.

In color psychology, the color green relates to balance and harmony. Green is the great balancer of the heart and the emotions, creating equilibrium between the head and the heart. Green is also known as the color of growth, the color of spring and the color of renewal and rebirth.

Green Fun Fact: In surveys made in American, European and Islamic countries, green is the color most commonly associated with wealth, merchants, bankers (think green cash), nature, life, health, youth, spring, hope and envy.

Be the envy of the catwalk and the envy of the town when you sparkle and shine in a splendid green evening gown!

If you relish the color green, but being dressed in solid green is just too much for you, add a touch of green with class and style…green handbags and jewelry will make you smile!

Spring forward where green rules the runway!

Fashion boots equals boots at their finest! Perhaps one style of boot that always stands out and is always in style is the high heeled ankle boot. Ankle boots are the most widely worn style of fashion boots for women, worn both under pants and with skirts and dresses. Ankle boots can vary in length from booties or shoe booties (shoes that skim the ankle) to boots that cover the lower part of the calf.

The defining characteristic of the boot is the length of the shaft. For those of you that adore wearing boots, you’re probably familiar with boots having various shaft lengths, including a shaft that follows the curve of your calf, straight legged, loose fitting or slouchy. With ankle boots, the shaft is shorter, going to or slightly above the ankle.

Ankle Boot Fun Fact: Ankle boots generally have a shaft height of less than 8 inches (20cm). In the 19th and early 20th century, ankle boots were common footwear for women. Even with rising dress hemlines, ankle boots add a cute, youthful, playful look and feel to the overall outfit.

While many ankle boots are made of leather and/or patent leather, some boots are also adorned with decorative features such as elaborate stitching and fur trims.

Sometimes, when it comes to shoes, only a high heeled ankle boot will do!

Popular Boot Designs:

  1. Ankle Boot
  2. Calf Length Boot
  3. Knee Length Boot
  4. Over the Knee Boot
  5. Thigh High Boot

Of course, various types of boots include combat boots, cowboy boots, construction boots, Russian boots, Ugh boots, vinyl boots, go-go boots and more!

Boots, boots, boots galore!

Fashion Boots Fun Fact: Although fashion boots and particularly go-go boots are often described as “typical” of 1960s fashion, it wasn’t until the 1970s that boots became a mainstream staple of women’s fashion. By contrast, in 1977, boots made up approximately 20 percent of all women’s shoe sales in the United States. The end of the decade saw fashion boots occupying pages of mainstream mail-order catalogs by companies such as Sears, Wards and Kays.

Exquisite women’s fashion boots of the 1960s and 1970s are just as trendy today!

Have you ever wondered if wearing boots feels cumbersome and bulky, or how people strut easily when their feet and legs are poured into boots? In close fitting boots, flexibility is achieved by the use of gussets: slits in the material either at the top of the shaft (in knee length boots) or wider panels at the sides of the shaft (in ankle boots), which are backed with elasticized fabric. Compression folds around the ankle allow for movement of the foot. In thigh high boots, flexion of the knee is usually attained by a vent at the back of the boot, running from the top of the shaft to the back of the knee. This may be closed with laces, elastic or left open.

Where a vent isn’t used, freedom of movement is achieved by either having the top of the shaft flare outwards above the knee, or making all or part of the shaft out of a stretchable material.

Come one, come all, let’s dance the boot scoot boogie in cowboy boots and high heeled ankle boots…stand tall!

Ankle boots are chic, cool, popular footwear for girls and women everywhere!

“That stiletto boot you’re wearing is delightful to the eye.”

“They’re so fun to wear. I feel like I can touch the sky.”

“The black vinyl boots decorated with rhinestone studs adds immense style.”

“And with the platform sole, I can strut and easily walk a mile.”

“You possess such exquisite fashion taste. Especially in the shoe.”

“There are times only a gorgeous high heeled ankle boot will do!’

High Heeled Ankle Boot: You’ll want to walk farther than a mile in your shoes! That’s true!

Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day, is celebrated yearly on February 14. Originating as a Western Christian feast day honoring one or two early saints named Valentinus, Valentine’s Day is recognized as a significant cultural, religious and commercial celebration of romance and love in many regions around the world.

The two most celebrated colors representing Valentine’s Day? Red and pink…mixed with white I think!
