However you define glamour, most people think of the word as an appearance of enhanced attractiveness, most notably relating to fashion and style. Glamour is revered worldwide, as is evidenced by red carpet events, celebrity followings, fashion shows, beauty pageants and the media. Whether you are someone who enjoys glamming up with clothing, makeup and hairstyles, or someone who prefers a more dressed down look, everyone should strive each day to look and feel their best. Feeling and looking great can help you deal with the stress and the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The best way to master your ultimate glamour goals is by making a list of the daily efforts that will help maintain your personal style of glamour. Although it will require effort at the start if you stick to your goals, they will eventually become something you fit willingly into your daily grooming routine.

Ways to Achieve Your Daily Ultimate Glamour Goals:

• Develop a Healthy Skin Care Routine:  By taking good care of your skin and maintaining a glowing, healthy complexion, you will face each day with confidence and a smile on your face. Wash your face daily and then apply a moisturizer/sunscreen.

• Exercise:  Even if you aren’t able to fit in yoga or jogging on a daily basis, you can choose to walk, take the stairs if available, or do anything that requires movement. You’ll not only look better, you’ll also feel better.

• Present Your Own Unique Fashion/Style:  Do you have clothes that you relish wearing, even if you feel they are too dressy? Do you love experimenting with makeup in ways that work best for you? Then, by all means, fill your closet with garments that make you look and feel good and wear the makeup that makes you feel like a vixen. Dress for yourself and elevate your mood!

• Hairstyle:  We all love our hair. The way we wear our hair, from our color choice to our length and style preference, hair is always important to most people. Face each day with your hair worn and styled your own signature way. Straight or curly, short or long and girly, have fun with your hair!

• Nail Care:  You’ll definitely want to take daily care of your hands and feet. A good way to ensure you keep your hands and feet soft is by applying lotion or petroleum jelly after showering. Also, pamper yourself with occasional manicures and pedicures or do them yourself at home. Paint your fingernails and toenails to highlight your gorgeous hands and feet.

• Maintain a Healthy Diet and Get Good Sleep:  Everyone has days where they need fast food or a piece of chocolate cake. Sleep? It’s not always easy to get your 7 or 8 hours a night as recommended. However, eating healthy, nutritious food and getting good rest you can help ensure you’ll look and feel your best, with enough strength and vitality to stay glamorous all day.

It is easy to master your ultimate glamour goals, it merely takes discipline and desire. By making your grooming routine a priority, selecting your signature fashion sense and facing each day with confidence, you’ll be a walking advertisement for health, glitz, and glam!

Ah, the joys of being a glamour girl! For most of us, whether you’re a girly girl, a tomboy, or maybe a bit of both, experimenting with beauty products and makeup rituals is fun, creative, and boosts your mood. Is it any wonder the beauty business is a billion dollar industry that thrives all over the world? Let’s even give a shout out to the guys who dabble with makeup and/or nail polish. Why should only women get all the festive fun?

We’re all busy in the mornings getting ready for our day, yet most of us want to take the time to put on makeup and put our beautiful face forward. The best way to ensure that you apply cosmetics each and every day is to get into a routine that becomes a habit. Eventually, if you leave the house bare-faced you’ll feel like you’ve forgotten something very important.

Even if you don’t like lots of color on your face by applying eyeshadows, blush, and lipsticks, most of us want our complexions to look blemish free and glowing. The best way to achieve this is by applying concealer and foundation. If this is the only cosmetic job you do every morning, it sets a base for a flawless face. Apply concealer over blemishes, dark spots, red spots, or skin blotches and then cover with foundation. Use a foundation that matches your natural skin color to not show cosmetic lines. Blend well. Finish off the masterpiece by lightly brushing a translucent face powder over the foundation. This adds a healthy, radiant glow to your skin.

Now that you have your canvas so to speak, it only takes 5 to 10 minutes to start building a gorgeous doll face. I tend to do my lips first as this sets the tone for the entire face. Once I decide what color lipstick or lip gloss I prefer to wear (I generally try to match it with my outfit), I’ll apply a lip liner and then add the lip color. Lipstick makes your entire face pop, and when you put your lipstick on first you’ll see your mood and your look elevate.

The next step for your makeup routine is the eye shadow, mascara, and eyebrow pencil if you prefer. I do try to match, so I generally select the shade of my eye shadow to complement my color choice of lipstick for the day. Either powder or cream eye shadows look lovely. Mascara is an absolute must! Using a mascara with a primer base that you apply before you swipe on the mascara adds length and fullness to your lashes. Colored mascaras are fun and playful, but I prefer dark black for a dramatic, alluring effect. This will also create an illusion of larger eyes.

Now that you have mesmerizing eyes, highlight your cheekbones with a cream or powder blush/rouge. You’ll be surprised how just a splash of pink or orange on your cheeks can bring out the luster of your face. Wow, you have fabulous makeup taste!

For those of you that prefer a clean, natural face, start each day with concealer and foundation. If you want to sparkle, shimmer and shine, add color to your face with lipstick, eye makeup, and blush. Once you get into this day to day cosmetics ritual, it will become such a habit you won’t have to rush!

By devoting 15 minutes each morning to your makeup routine you’ll get to go through the day as an ultimate glamour queen! Put on a lovely face before stepping outside and joining the daily rat race!

For a face that radiates and makes you look alive, by creating a daily makeup routine your beauty and allure will thrive!

Perhaps there is no hairstyle that is cuter, cooler and more perfect for summer than the trending bob! No matter the shape of your face, be it round, oval, square or heart shaped, the short, sassy hairstyle that is the bob works as the elegant, sultry frame for your face.

A bob cut is a shorter haircut in which the hair is typically cut straight around the head at about jaw level, often with bangs (fringe) at the front. The bob is generally cut at the level of the ears or above the shoulders.

Great Ways to Wear the Bob:

1. Parted down the middle
2. Parted down the side
3. The ends level with your chin
4. The ends just above the shoulders
5. Straight
6. Curled
7. With Bangs
8. Without Bangs

Whichever way you prefer to style your bob, the final look is summery, youthful and fun. The bob is a trending hairstyle that does work well on everyone!

The bob haircut: cute, trendy, classy and sassy!

Ana Wintour of Vogue magazine is known for her bob haircut parted down the middle, with bangs. As early as the 1920s The Times was suggesting that the bob hairstyle was passé. By the end of the 1920s, the dominant female hairstyle in the Western world was the bob. The chic hairstyle then spread beyond the West, as women in other countries began to adopt the bob haircut as a sign of modern times. Close fitting hats also became popular, and worked perfectly with short hair.

One great way to recognize a true bob haircut is by the sharp lines of the cut. The bob often turns in at the ends, resting under the chin.

Types of Bobs:

1. A-line Bob: A typical bob cut, with slightly longer hair that frames the face, curling under the chin.
2. Buzz-Cut Bob: The bob is shoulder length in the front and close cropped at the back.
3. Chin Length Bob: Cut straight to the chin, with or without bangs.
4. Inverted Bob: Similar to the A-line bob, but with stacked layers in back. The perimeter of the cut is curved rather than being a straight line.
5. Shaggy Bob: A messy bob layered with a razor.
6. Shingle Bob: A cut that is tapered very short in the back, exposing the hairline at the neck. The hair on the sides is formed into a single curl or point on each cheek.
7. Shoulder Length Bob: A blunt bob that reaches the shoulders and has very few layers.

Whatever type of bob you choose, when you wear this gorgeous, short, fun hairstyle you will never lose!

If you’re someone who normally wears your hair long and you want to try something new, I suggest the short, sassy, classy, sexy bob in the summertime or the entire year through!

When it comes to fashion garments, necklines have a large impact on the look and style of the clothing. The neckline is the top edge of a garment that surrounds the neck, especially from the front view. For each garment worn above the waist, the neckline is primarily a style line and may be a boundary for further shaping of the upper edge of the clothing with a collar, cowl, darts or pleats.


One type of neckline that is sexy, sensual and perfect for spring and summer is the halterneck. Halterneck is a style of women’s clothing straps that runs from the front of the garment around the back of the neck, leaving the impression from behind that nothing is holding up the dress or the top.

In addition to tops, blouses and dresses, the halterneck style is used in bathing suits to maximize sun tan exposure on the back, and minimize tan lines. The halterneck style creates the look of a backless dress or top. The neck strap itself can be covered by your hair, leaving the impression from behind that nothing is holding up the garment.

Halterneck Fashion Tip: If a bra is worn with a halterneck, the bra is generally strapless or of halterneck construction itself, to avoid exposing the back straps of a typical bra. For those of you who are fashion fearless, exposing bra straps is a popular trend. Your fashion, your choice! Be fashion forward!

Other Popular Types of Necklines:

1. Boat Neck – A high, wide, slightly curved neckline.
2. Deep Necklines – Low necklines in either V, U or square shapes, revealing various amounts of cleavage.
3. Jewel Neckline – Round and sits at the base of the throat.
4. Off the Shoulder – The neckline rests low and below the shoulders and collar bone.
5. One Shoulder Necklines – Asymmetrical necklines that cut across the torso diagonally, exposing one shoulder.
6. Polo Neck – High, close fitting collars that wrap around the neck (turtlenecks).
7. Scoop Neck – Curved shaped Us, with the arms of the U hanging on the shoulders.
8. Square Neck – Three linear edges, with the bottom edge meeting the side edges at a right angle.
9. V-Neck – Two diagonal lines from the shoulders meet on the chest, creating a V shape.

For a cool, chic neckline that passes the hot summer weather test, the halterneck is truly the best!

High top fashion in spring and summer halternecks!

For summer and beach wear, a halter top is incredibly popular. A halter top is a sleeveless shirt similar to a tank top, but with the straps being tied behind the neck as opposed to the straps going over the shoulders, like spaghetti straps. In another style of the halter top, there is only a narrow strap behind the neck and a narrow strap behind the middle of the back, so that the top is predominantly backless. This design resembles many bikini tops, although the halter top covers the chest more and may cover all of the abdomen.

High end style in a halterneck! High fashion, high top halternecks!

All makeup lovers understand the importance of carrying a perfectly filled cosmetic bag with them throughout the day. A great cosmetic bag should be large enough to hold your favorite makeup products, yet small enough to fit easily into your purse. Deciding which makeup items to carry around with you for touch ups and makeup emergencies can be an overwhelming process. So I decided to help you out a bit. I compiled a list of makeup essentials that will save you from a cosmetics disaster!

• Mascara, Eyeliner and Makeup Brush Combo

Of all makeup items to never leave the house without, mascara and eyeliner take first place. By highlighting your eyes with black mascara and eyeliner, the definition of your eyes will pop and appear larger. This is an essential and magnetic makeup must have.

• Your Favorite Tube of Lipstick or Lip Gloss

A touch of color and shine to your lips throughout the day not only adds pizzazz to your face, but keeps you looking refreshed all day long. Do you look bland when you look in the mirror? Swipe some wow colored lipstick over your lips and watch your look come to life.

• Spray Spritz Moisturizer

Spraying a light mist of moisturizer to your face throughout the day will not only keep your foundation and powder looking fresh, but your skin will look supple and youthful. Not sure how to look wide awake in that afternoon boardroom meeting? Wipe the tiredness away with a quick moisturizer spray.

• Concealer

You never know what the day holds for you or your makeup, so it’s smart to keep a solid beauty warrior in your cosmetic bag in case redness or blemishes start to show. Cover up those pesky flaws with a concealer that matches your skin tone.

• Makeup Sponge

Always have a makeup sponge handy to wipe away face oils as the day wears on or blend eyeshadow and/or blush back in place that might be fading away. A few wipes with a dry makeup sponge can save a glamour girl’s day.

Much like a glorious pair of high heeled shoes, your makeup bag can be your fashion and beauty best friend, traveling wherever you go, and saving you from unexpected and unwanted makeup mishaps!

Are you one of the many who wear their sunglasses in the dark, at night, even though it dims your eyesight? Why? Because any fashion diva walking behind sunglasses creates a stunning visual: striking, trendy and cool!

Sunglasses do far more than protect our eyes from strong rays of sun. Sunglasses make a fashion statement on everyone!
Sunglasses are a form of protective eyewear designed primarily to prevent bright sunlight and high-energy visible light from damaging or discomforting the eyes. Sunglasses also function as a visual aid, featuring lenses that are colored or darkened, and frames that are cool, chic and sexy.

Sunglasses Fun Fact: The American Optometric Association recommends wearing sunglasses whenever a person is in the sun to protect the eyes from ultraviolet radiation (UV) and blue light, which can cause serious eye problems. Fashion experts recommend wearing sunglasses whenever you wish to appear hot.

Sunglasses have long been associated with celebrities and film actors, primarily from a desire to mask their identity, or to add mystery to their mass appeal. Since the 1940s, sunglasses have been popular as a fashion accessory, especially on the beach. Sunglasses have become popular for many reasons, one is to keep sun and glare out of your eyes. Sunglasses can also be worn to hide the eyes, making eye contact virtually impossible, which can be intimidating to those not wearing sunglasses.

Fashion trends are another major reason for wearing sunglasses, particularly designer sunglasses from high-end fashion brands. Sunglasses of particular shapes and sizes may be in vogue as a fashion accessory. Fashion trends can also count on the “cool” image of sunglasses and their association with a prominent lifestyle, especially the close connection between sunglasses and beach life. Sometimes the image sunglasses gives off serves as the core concept behind an entire brand.

Sunglasses Construction:

1. Lens: The color of the lens may vary depending on style, fashion and purpose, but for general use, red, grey, green and brown are recommended to avoid or minimize color distortion.
2. Frames: Frames are generally made of plastic, nylon, metal or a metal alloy. Frames can be thin, thick, colorful, wire, and various shapes.
3. Nose Bridge: Nose bridges provide support between the lens and the face. They also prevent pressure marks caused by the weight of the lens or frame on the cheeks.

I wear my sunglasses in the dark! Simply because I can!

Fashionable Types of Sunglasses:

1.  Aviator
2. Clip Up
3. Flip Up
4. Gradient Lenses
5. Mirrored
6. Oversized
7. Shutter Shades
8. Teashades
9. Wayfarer
10. Wrap Around

Various names for sunglasses are shades, glares, glints, sun spectacles, sun shades, dark glasses, sunnies, smoked spectacles, solar shades, glecks and cooling glasses. Some major brands include Foster Grants, Oakley, Ray-Ban, Persol, Luxottica and Serengeti.

 

Who is that stunning guy and gal behind those sunglasses? Sunglasses look fashionably sexy on all lads and lasses!

Over the moon in cool sunglasses!

Sure, life can be much easier and more fun when you have lots of money, but money doesn’t mean everything. On those weekends when cash is tight and your time is open, it can force you to get creative and explore activities that you may not pay much attention to when your wallet is large. This is actually a good thing. You’d be amazed at how many activities you can do and what you can explore when your budget is forcing you to nickel and dime it!

Favorite Affordable Weekend Activities:

• Bowling: Everyone should bowl at least once in their lifetime. Most larger cities have a bowling alley in the area that can guarantee you a fun, competitive event at a reasonable cost. Toss in nachos and a coke from the snack bar and have a grand time on a dime!

• Take a Hike: Most of us spend so much time in our cars, on public transportation, etc. that getting out in the open air and enjoying a hike is a welcome pleasure. Whether you take a short stroll through hills or a long hike up mountains, the exercise and fresh air will feel good!

• Plan a Picnic: If the weather cooperates, a picnic in the park passes time and costs you only the price of the food you pack. Some cities offer free outdoor concerts in the park. Why not lay out a blanket, feast from your picnic basket and enjoy some great music at minimal expense?

• Visit a Coffee House: Coffee houses have become the new “fast food restaurants” to drink and socialize in. You can pass an entire afternoon hitting a coffee house with friends, indulging in your favorite flavored coffees and chatting for hours. You can catch up on all the latest gossip and connect with friends on a deeper level at the same time.

• Host a Movie Night: Invite family and friends over for a movie night at your house. Everyone can pitch in for pizzas or you can do a potluck style gathering, where the cost of food is divided among the guests. Laughter, food, and fun on a budget!

• Hang Out in a Sports Bar: Sports bars offer delicious food, drinks, access to viewing sporting events, pool tables and dart boards. For the same amount of money you would spend at a restaurant for dinner, you can choose to eat at a sports bar with unlimited free entertainment while you watch your favorite teams battle it out. Not a sports fan? A little competition does the body and mind well!

• Go for Ice Cream Treats: Find your closest Baskin Robbins or frozen yogurt shop and indulge in your favorite ice cream treats! Satisfy your sweet tooth with amazing ice cream desserts and your taste buds and mood will ramp up, while your pocketbook doesn’t take a nosedive. Ice cream brings everyone to their happy place!

With so many things to do that don’t require lots of money, one should never be bored. Unless, of course, the stillness and restful state of being bored brings you to your happy place. There is a serenity about slowing down, doing nothing, and regrouping! After all, this is how you keep your energy up to do fun activities on  a budget!

ChapStick is by far the most noted and used brand of all lip balms. The brand name ChapStick is so popular that people use it in relation to all lip balm products, much like calling tissue Kleenex. ChapStick is manufactured by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare and sold in many countries around the world. But what does ChapStick actually do? It helps treat and prevent chapped lips, and more.

ChapStick also functions as a sunscreen available with SPFs as high as 50, and a skin lubricant to help prevent and protect chafed, chapped, sunburned, cracked, and windburned lips. “Medicated” varieties are also available which contain analgesics to relieve sore lips.

Five Fun Facts Regarding ChapStick:

  1. It Doesn’t Moisturize – ChapStick doesn’t work by adding moisture to your lips, it works by protecting your lips from losing their own moisture. The wax creates a watertight barrier that prevents your internal skin moisture from escaping, softening your lips and keeping them feeling moist.
  2. The Little Bit You Ingest is Okay – Although the ingredients in ChapStick aren’t meant to be eaten, the amount you consume from licking your lips isn’t going to harm you, much like wearing your favorite lipstick.
  3. ChapStick Does Expire – Like most health and beauty products, a tube of ChapStick does have an expiration date. You’ll likely use the product before it expires, as one container of ChapStick is meant to last two to three years.
  4. Lips Aren’t The Only Place to Use ChapStick – Much like petroleum jelly, ChapStick can be applied to other parts of your body than just the lips to soften skin and help hold in moisture. You can use ChapStick around your nose in cold weather to prevent chapping, apply it to your nail cuticles and tame unruly eyebrows.
  5. Special Flavors – ChapStick is available in special flavors developed in connection with marketing partners such as Disney or charitable causes like breast cancer awareness. Some of these flavors include Cherry, Grape Craze, and Blue Crazeberry.

For soft, natural, gorgeous lips that are sure to shine, apply ChapStick in the morning and evenings, or as a protective base coat before swiping on your lipstick.

For the many of you who use ChapStick regularly, here are a list of Ingredients in regular flavored ChapStick: arachidyl propionate, camphor, carnauba wax, cetyl alcohol, D&C red no. 6 barium lake, FD&C yellow no. 5 aluminum lake, fragrance, isopropyl lanolate, isopropyl myristate, lanolin, light mineral oil, methylparaben, octyldodecanol, oleyl alcohol, paraffin, phenyl trimethicone, propylparaben, titanium dioxide, white wax, proponal. Its net weight is 4 grams or 0.14 ounces.

Although most people have no ill effects from using ChapStick, some of you may be allergic to certain ingredients. Always read the ingredients list of all lip products to ensure your health and safety before using the item for the first time.

Everything you need to know at Chapstick 101! Protect your lips and keep them kissable and soft for joyful fun in the sun!

Pucker up baby! ChapStick for soft, supple, ooh la la lips!
