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. No longer will you be able to hide your true physique under layered clothing and heavy jackets. So, here are some easy-to-do tips to get ready for warmer weather. It’s time to tone up, shape up, and fire up your energy, stamina, and body.

1. Drink Lots of Water (Hydrate) – Drinking water helps you think, focus, and concentrate. Water also promotes weight loss, flushes out toxins, improves skin complexion, boosts the immune system, relieves headaches, and makes your mood better.

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!

As we’re coming up on Daylight Saving Time, where we will move the clocks forward by one hour, and then watch Winter dissolve into Spring, you can’t go wrong or feel more comfortable wearing the color green! The color green is regal and earthy, and fit for a fashion queen!

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. Green is vital for life…by far the largest contributor to green in nature is through chlorophyll, the chemical by which plants convert sunlight into chemical energy.

In the realm of fashion, the color green embodies a chic, cool form of action and passion!

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!

The color red is a warm and positive color associated with our most physical needs and our will to survive. Red exudes a strong and powerful masculine energy. Red is often used to express love, which is why the color is associated with Valentine’s Day. When you leave the house you’ll be noticed by all if dressed in red…from your toes to your head!

The color pink represents compassion, nurturing and love. Pink relates to unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving of nurturing. A combination of the colors red and white, pink contains the need for action of red, helping to achieve the potential for success and insight offered by white. When you leave the house dressed in pink you’ll be the daintiest, most feminine person on the planet…I think!

Roman soldiers would recognize the ring and ask him to perform marriage for them. Associated with Saint Valentine, amethyst has become the birthstone for February, which is thought to attract love!

Sometimes less truly is more…especially when you’re dolling up for an evening out and your choice is an eye stopping, alluring miniskirt.
A miniskirt is a skirt with a hemline well above the knees, generally at mid-thigh level, normally no longer than 4 inches (10 cm) below the buttocks. A dress with such a hemline is called a minidress, or a miniskirt dress. A micro-miniskirt or microskirt is a miniskirt with the hemline at the upper thigh.
Miniskirt: A skirt so short with thighs so high you truly touch the sky!

Short skirts have existed for many years, though they were generally not called “mini” or became a real fashion trend until the 1960s. Instances of clothing resembling miniskirts have been identified by archaeologists and historians as far back as 1390-1370 BCE. In the early 20th century, the dancer Josephine Baker’s banana skirt that she wore for her mid-1920s performances in the Folies Bergere was subsequently likened to a miniskirt.

The miniskirt for maximum effect!
Miniskirt Fun Fact: Hemlines were just above the knee in 1961, and gradually climbed upward over the next few years. By 1966, some designs had the hem at the upper thigh. Stockings worn with suspenders or garter belts were not considered practical with miniskirts and were replaced with colored tights or opaque stockings. The popular acceptance of miniskirts as mainstream apparel peaked in the ‘swinging London’ of the 1960s, and has continued to be commonplace in fashion, particularly among younger women and teenage girls. Before that time short skirts were only seen in sport and dance clothing, such as skirts worn by female tennis players, figure skaters, cheerleaders and dancers.
Ooh la la, the miniskirt. Rah, rah, rah!

Miniskirt Fun Fact: Several designers have been credited with the invention of the 1960s miniskirt, most significantly the London based designer Mary Quant and the Parisian designer Andre Courreges. Although Quant reportedly named the skirt after her favorite make of car, the Mini, there is no consensus as to who designed the flashy skirt first. Valerie Steele has noted that the claim that Quant was first is more convincingly supported by evidence than the equivalent Courreges claim. However, the contemporary fashion journalist Marit Allen, who edited the influential “Young Ideas” pages for UK Vogue, firmly stated that the British designer John Bates was the first designer to offer fashionable miniskirts. Other great designers, such as Pierre Cardin and Yves Saint Laurent, had also been raising hemlines at the same time
No matter the designer, no matter the brand…as a true fashion diva the sexy, leg showing miniskirt deserves a congratulatory hand!

Nancy Mangano’s Fashion Fun Tip: Miniskirts look especially cute and alluring when worn with a high heeled ankle boot or a stiletto heel or pump. The higher the heel and the shorter the skirt, the more eye popping the look! And isn’t that the main goal of the miniskirt? To open eyes, turn heads and show off legs for days!
Stop traffic as you walk across the street when draped in a darling miniskirt and high high heels on your feet! A delightful eye candy treat!
Skirt sweet!

Miniskirt Not So Fun Fact: In the early 21st century, miniskirts were still seen as controversial, and remain subject to bans and regulations. Valerie Steele told the BBC in 2014 that even though miniskirts no longer had the power to shock in most Western cultures, she would hesitate to wear one in most parts of the world.
Whether your choice is a miniskirt or a maxi skirt, when donned in a flamboyant and playful miniskirt be prepared to flirt, flirt, flirt!

What’s that you say? The miniskirt is a surefire fashion hit all the way!
“I feel I need to tell you that the bottom of your skirt has fallen off.”
“My skirt hemline is sewn this short…a look that’s sexy and tough.”
“I do believe I like the look…less fabric truly is more.”
“And my legs are long and lean…legs to truly adore.”
“What do you call a skirt that is so short yet adorable all in one?”
“The miniskirt. A definite fashion A+ whether at home or on the run!”
Miniskirt: A fashion hit out of the ball park every time. A winner skirt, truly sublime!

Chances are, if you’re wearing gladrags, you’re already spiced up! What are gladrags? Gladrags are defined as clothes for a special occasion; one’s best clothes. For the fashion lovers and the not so fashion lovers, a sure way to spruce up your outfit (whether casual or dressy)  is by carrying a great, stylish, knock-out handbag or purse.
A handbag, also called a purse or pouch in North American English, is generally a handled, medium to large bag, often used by women to carry personal items. Purses do so much more than hold our necessities; purses make or break an outfit!

Purse Fun Fact: The term “purse” originally referred to a small bag for holding coins. In British English, a purse is still used to refer to a small coin bag. A “handbag” is a larger accessory that holds objects beyond currency, such as personal items. American English typically uses the terms purse and handbag interchangeably. The term handbag began appearing in the early 1900s. Initially, the term was most often used to refer to men’s hand-luggage. Women’s bags grew larger and more complex during this period, and the term was attached to the accessory!
Nancy Mangano’s Purse Fashion Tip: I love all satchel handbags. There is something about the easy handle and the smaller shape of the purse that I adore. For me, satchel bags are the best bags to carry.
Here is a beautiful Marco M Kelly (MMK) Satchel Handbag:

Purses and handbags to spice up your gladrags!

Purse Fun Fact: Early modern Europeans wore purses for one sole purpose: to carry coins. Purses were made of soft fabric or leather and were worn by men and women. In the 17th century, young girls were taught embroidery as a necessary skill for marriage; this also helped to make beautiful handbags. By the late 18th century, fashions in Europe were moving towards a slender shape for these accessories, inspired by the silhouettes of Ancient Greece and Rome. Women (the fashion bugs that we are) wanted purses that wouldn’t be bulky or untidy in appearance, so ‘reticules’ were designed. Reticles were made of fine fabrics like silk or velvet, carried with wrist straps.
Taking a gorgeous handbag away from a woman is like taking high heels away from a shoe buff! You just don’t do it!
For those of you that prefer large tote bags, this Cadier Tote Bag is a practical yet classy bag rolled into one:

As fashion accessories, handbags can be categorized according to the silhouette of the bag, as well as the type of handle:
Classic Types of Handbags/Purses:

  1. Baquette
  2. Barrel
  3. Bowling Bag Purse
  4. Clutch
  5. Drawstring
  6. Half-Moon
  7. Hobo
  8. Messenger Bag
  9. Muff
  10. Pocketbook
  11. Pouch
  12. Saddle Purse
  13. Satchel
  14. Tote
  15. Wristlet

Whatever type of purse is your preference, a fashionable coin purse or tote is worth a glorious shout out! To the collector of purses, that’s what I’m talking about!

Purse Fun Fact: The modern purse, clutch, pouch or handbag came about in England during the Industrial Revolution, in part due to the increase in travel by railway. In 1841, the Doncaster industrialist and confectionery entrepreneur Samuel Parkinson (of the butterscotch candy fame) ordered a set of travelling cases and trunks and insisted on a travelling case or bag for his wife’s particulars, after noticing that her purse was too small and made from material that wouldn’t withstand the journey. H. J. Cave (London) obliged Parkinson’s request and produced the first modern set of luxury handbags as we would recognize them today, including a clutch bag and a tote bag!
Hail H. J. Cave who designed purses that were cool and rave!
Ah, give me my stunning, gorgeous handbags to carry and highlight my dressy gladrags!

Handbag Fun Fact: The verb “to handbag” derives from United Kingdom Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s habit of pulling scraps of paper out of her handbag in meetings and reading aloud the comments that she had written on them.

No more does granddad have to sweat to buy you handbags and gladrags! As independent, fashion forward women, we can pamper ourselves by buying our own handbags and gladrags! (Handbags and Gladrags: Great song sung by Rod Stewart, by the way)!
For purses and handbags that are here to stay, carry your own signature bag and look chic and regal in every way!
“I see that you’re carrying a lovely Guess designer purse. Is that your designer fave?”
“I love all designer bags: Versace, Coach, Gucci, Guess, Prada, and more to rave!”
“Large pink tote bags are in style and add pizzazz and punch to your look.”
“I also carry satchel bags, clutch bags, shoulder strap bags…on all bags I’m hooked.”
“I think I know what to get for you on your birthday or holiday.”
“A fashionable purse or handbag hits it out of the ball park each and every day!”
Purses and Handbags: A surefire win in every way!

Always glam; always gorgeous, always glorious! Red lipsticks!


Lipstick Fun Fact: If you’re looking for a red, sultry, dry look, then go with matte lipsticks. If you want a more daring, wet, sensual lip, use lip glosses. Lipstick contains waxes, oils, antioxidants and emollients. Wax provides the structure to the solid lipstick. Lipstick can be made from such waxes as beeswax, ozokerite and candelilla wax. Because of its high melting point, Carnauba wax is a key ingredient in terms of strengthening lipsticks.
Take back your feminine strength and power when you cover your luscious lips in glorious red lipsticks from hour to hour!

Lipstick Fun Fact: During the second World War, metal lipstick tubes were replaced by plastic and paper tubes. Lipstick was scarce during that time because some of the essential ingredients of lipstick, petroleum and castor oil were unavailable. As women started wearing lipstick for photographs, cosmetic giants such as Elizabeth Arden and Estee Lauder began selling lipstick in their salons.
Nancy Mangano’s Lipstick Beauty Tip: If you can only wear two cosmetic products for the rest of your life, choose lipstick and black mascara. A bare face can be dolled up and glammed up with just these two cosmetics. Stand out colored lips and long eyelashes bring out the entire face!
Win the lipstick race: decorate your lips in shades of red to heighten and radiate your face!

The term ‘fashion’ is a universal word, known and admired around the world. But what exactly constitutes fashion? Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, hairstyle and body. Fashion is a distinctive and often constant trend in the style in which a person dresses. Because the more technical term ‘costume’ is regularly linked to ‘fashion’, the use of the term costume has been relegated to special senses like fancy dress or masquerade wear, while fashion generally means clothing.
Although aspects of fashion can be masculine or feminine, some fashion trends are androgynous (worn by both males and females).  Be it haute couture (high fashion) or casual attire, fashion is a word that excites and inspires!

Fashion: A passion for fashion means you have an innate, hungry, yearning eye and desire for fabulous clothing garments.
Style: The signature way that you mix and match the fashion pieces together.
Fashion Fun Fact: The notion of a global fashion industry is a product of the modern age. Prior to the mid-19th century, most clothing was custom made. Clothing was handmade for individuals, either as home production or on order from dressmakers and tailors. By the beginning of the 20th century, with the rise of new technologies such as the sewing machine, and the rise of global capitalism and the development of the factory system of production, and the proliferation of retail outlets such as department stores, clothing came to be mass-produced in standard sizes and sold at fixed prices.
Ah, the true meaning behind the phrase “passion for fashion”!

The Fashion Industry Consists of Four Levels:

  1. The production of raw materials, principally fibers and textiles, but also leather and fur.
  2. The production of fashion goods by designers, manufacturers, contractors and others.
  3. Retail sales.
  4. Various forms of advertising and promotion.

These four levels consist of many separate but interdependent sectors. The sectors are:

  1. Textile Design
  2. Production
  3. Fashion Design
  4. Manufacturing
  5. Fashion Retailing
  6. Marketing
  7. Merchandising
  8. Fashion Shows
  9. Media Marketing


Major Influences in Fashion Trends:

  1. Political Influences
  2. Social Influences
  3. Technology Influences
  4. Economical Influences

Fashion Fun Fact: The media plays a significant role when it comes to fashion. An important part of fashion is fashion journalism. Editorial critique, guidelines and fashion commentary can be found on television, in magazines, in newspapers, fashion websites, social media sites, social networks and fashion blogs. In recent years, fashion blogging and YouTube videos have become a major outlet for spreading fashion trends and tips, creating an online culture of sharing one’s style on a website, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram account.
