Long, beautiful eyelashes can definitely make you stand out in a crowd. When your lustrous lashes are real, as opposed to fake eyelashes or eyelash extensions, your eyes will be noticed with or without eye makeup. There is something about long eyelashes that looks absolutely lovely. Dark, full eyebrows and long, thick eyelashes bring out the true allure of your face.

Long, voluptuous eyelashes are a symbol of natural beauty and are an asset to any face. If you prefer extended, natural eyelashes there are easy, inexpensive ways to grow out your own enchanting lashes. Just like the hair on your head, your eyelashes and eyebrows need nourishment to grow and ensure that your vixen lashes remain extended and eye catching.

Bat your eyes for the good news! There are ways to grow thicker, longer, stronger and healthier natural eyelashes!

Natural Ways to Grow Long Eyelashes:

1. Use a lash lengthening gel underneath your mascara. Some lengthening gels not only grow and lengthen your own lashes, but the gel also conditions and protects your eyelashes, making your lashes stronger.
2. Apply olive oil or castor oil to your eyelashes before you go to bed. Rub the oil between your thumb and finger, then pat the oil onto your eyelashes, or use a clean mascara brush to apply.
3. Apply petroleum jelly to your eyelashes. Let the petroleum jelly sink into your lashes overnight, then wash the jelly off in the morning.
4. Avoid eyelash curlers! Eyelash curlers have a tendency to pull out and/or break your eyelashes, especially if you use the curler on lashes coated with mascara.
5. Eat a nutritious, well balanced diet high in B vitamins and protein. Your eyelashes need to be fed a healthy diet to grow thick and full, just like the hair on your head.
6. Glycerin and egg whites mixed with castor oil, applied to your eyelashes, feeds and strengthens your lashes.
7. Invest in a good eye makeup remover that allows for your mascara to come off easily, where you don’t have to scrub or tug at your lashes.

Once you’ve grown your eyelashes to a lovely length, why not book a pamper session with a Mobile Styles health and beauty expert? Treat yourself to a complete makeover that will make your entire face shine and glow as you go through your busy day.

In order to ensure that your natural, long eyelashes stand out even more, apply two coats of black mascara and watch your pretty peepers come to life. Long, dark, thick eyelashes do wonders for highlighting your face. I say that if I could only wear one cosmetic my choice would be mascara (with lipstick a close second)! The first thing people notice when they look at your face is your eyes. Long, mascara coated eyelashes help beautify and enlarge the size of your eyes. Sheer glamour!

Lovely, long eyelashes are the bomb! Natural ways to grow eyelashes that are lengthy, lustrous and strong.

Oh how we all wish we could adore the skin that we’re in: blemish free, soft and smooth with a healthy, happy glow. I’m thrilled to say it can be so. By eating a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water and protecting and nurturing your skin with the right products and daily skin care routine, you truly can love the skin that you’re in.

Skin care can seem overwhelming with so many serums, products and brands on the market that promise radiant, wrinkle free, younger and blemish free skin. What’s a glamour girl or guy to do when you walk down the store aisles and you see so many lotions, moisturizers and soaps standing out at you?

Your basic skin care can be simple with great results by using 5 essential products to help you relish the skin that you’re in!

The 5 Most Important Steps of Your Skin Care Routine:

• Facial Cleanser: Facial cleansers will clean your skin, and are easier and more gentle on your skin than soap. When cleansing, start at the bottom of your face and work your way up to stimulate the skin and open the pores. Rinse with warm water and pat dry with a towel.

• Skin Toner: A strong skin toner works wonders for a healthy skin care routine. Toners close pores, remove traces of built up oils and help seal in moisture.

• Moisturizers/Oils: Once your face is fresh and clean, you’ll want to prevent dryness by applying a moisturizer or facial oil. Dry skin leads to premature aging, clogged pores and dull looking skin. Oils help to moderate your skin’s oil production as opposed to making oily skin oilier.

• Facial Masks: Although you don’t need to use a facial mask everyday, once a week is a grand idea to help firm and cleanse your skin. All beauty supply stores carry face masks geared for different skin types (dry, normal, oily, combination) and skin conditions (deep-pore, mid-pore and topical). Cream, clay and mud masks are very popular and can either be wiped off or peeled off when your mask treatment is complete.

• Clean, Soft Makeup Brushes: Once your skin care routine is finished for the evening or morning and it’s makeup time, you’ll likely want to brush a light dose of translucent powder over your face to give you a healthy, radiant, lasting glow. Always use soft, clean brushes to keep your pristine skin care routine at its best.

After only a few weeks of sticking to your healthy skin care routine, your face will thank you. You’ll not only feel shiny clean, but your face will appear smoother, younger and more supple. You’ll definitely look like a happy, healthy, blemish free skin king or queen!

Summer time is here and most of us are probably incredibly happy to see this fun, sunshine filled season smile down on us. Summer is three months of vacations, beaches, parties, sand, surf, sun and fun. Long, luxurious, glorious days to be savored and enjoyed by everyone.

While going to the beach is a treat, it does take a bit of packing beforehand, even if you are only going for one day. Once your feet sink into the glorious sand you’ll want to stay awhile, and the sun’s rays and the sometimes humid air at the beach calls for extra pampering and care to avoid burning and dry skin. Oh, but even amidst these hazards, the thrill of spending time at the beach makes a little burn or hair frizz well worth it.

10 Essential Items You Need to Pack in Your Beach Bag:

• Towel: You may even want to pack two towels, one to lay out on and one to dry off on. A large sized beach towel is a must to protect you from the hot sand.

• Sunglasses: Those strong, hot rays of sunshine may feel fabulous, but your eyes will thank you if you slip on a great pair of sunglasses. No squinting!

Photo Source: Unsplash

• Flip Flops: Even if you prefer to go barefoot in the sand, you’ll need something for your feet when you walk to and from your car, strut down the strand to eat or shop, or if the sand is simply too hot.

• Sunscreen: No matter your skin type (light, medium, dark) we all know the harsh sun can dry out our skin and/or lead to skin cancer. Always wear your sunscreen.

• Body Lotion or Suntan Oil: Make sure that throughout the day you keep your skin soft and supple to protect from the harsh rays of the sun.

• Hydrating After Sun Spray: At the end of your beach day, apply a hydrating after sun spray made with cocoa butter and oils to help moisturize and restore dry and sun damaged skin.

• Lip Balm or Lip Gloss: The sun can also burn and dry out your lips, so keep your lips well coated and protected with lip balm or a clear lip gloss.

• Books: Even if you think you’ll spend all day in the water, you may decide to relax on your towel and soak up some sun. A good book passes time and intrigues everyone.

• Go Pro Camera: For all the adventurous underwater guys and gals, body surfing while taking pictures with a Go Pro camera is the bomb!

• Frisbee: You might want to put down your iPhone for awhile and toss a frisbee. Sometimes your inner child just needs to play awhile. If you’re at a dog beach, bring your pooch along. Dogs need their playtime too.

These are 10 essential items you should carry in your beach bag to ensure your time in the sand and the sun is humongous fun. While you’re at it, why not bring along a beach ball? Fun for you alone or the entire family, one and all! This picture just shouts joy!

Splurge on yourself with a playful day or week at the beach, rejuvenate your body and mind and take some time out to just enjoy everyday life. Time in the sun equals pure festive fun!

Take your pamper time a step beyond and use Mobile Styles to continue your restful vacation. Once you’re tanned and refreshed, a Mobile Styles on demand health and beauty professional will make you look gorgeous.

What you pack in your beach bag can make or break your day in the sun. 10 essential items that should be carried in your beach bag by everyone.

Visit Nancy on her global online fashion/style/beauty magazine Strutting in Style! at http://www.struttinginstyle.com, her Facebook page Nancy Mangano at  https://www.facebook.com/nancymmangano/  Twitter @https://twitter.com/nancymangano and her author website http://www.nancymangano.com

 

Yes, it’s true that if you go to the beach wearing a one piece bathing suit you will likely be surrounded by a borage of beach babes dressed in thongs, bikinis and two piece swimsuits. Guess the good news? You can still stand out and be a bathing suit beauty wearing a one piece swimsuit. Have you seen the one piece bathing suits on the market today? They are sexy, classy, sassy and gorgeous all the way!

Whether you prefer a one piece bathing suit that covers your entire torso, or a swimsuit that still shows plenty of skin, when you fit yourself into a slinky, stylish, sensual one piece bathing suit you’ll love the suit that you’re in (and the way you wear the suit so well)!

Before the popularity of the two piece swimsuit, and then the bikini, virtually all female swimwear covered at least the wearer’s torso, and men also wore similar swimsuits. While the bikini has increasingly found popularity since the 1960s, the one piece swimsuit has maintained its signature place on beaches and pools to this day. Yes, the darling, adorable one piece swimsuit is here to stay. Hip hip hooray!

The most common type of one piece bathing suit is the maillot or tank suit, which resembles a sleeveless leotard or body suit. Many variances of the one piece swimsuit include the halter neck, wrap around, pretzel suit and bandeau style bathing suit.

One Piece Bathing Suit Fun Fact: The modern one piece swimsuit made its appearance in the mid 1900s, when the style was widely known as the tank suit. Its widespread acceptance is attributed to Australian swimmer Annette Kellerman, who attracted further attention to the style in 1907, when she was arrested on a Boston, Massachusetts beach for indecent exposure because her swimsuit showed her arms, legs and neck. This arrest prompted a wide public outrage which added to the worldwide acceptance of the tank top one piece bathing suit style. Can you imagine what would have happened if Annette Kellerman had been wearing a thong bikini that is prevalent today? Locked up for sure and they would have probably thrown the key away. Ha!

One reason I find the one piece bathing suit so attractive is because you have more material to work with, which means the designer can cut and sew a swimsuit together that has more fashion and style. When you work with the minimal amount of fabric it takes to sew a bikini, you don’t have much fabric to put together and show off your creativity. With a one piece swimsuit, you can have shoulder straps, halter neck tops, cutouts and openings in the midriff section, etc. which allows the designer/manufacturer more options in sewing together a knockout, sexy, beautiful bathing suit.

It was during the 1920s and 1930s that people began to shift from “taking in the water” to “taking in the sun”, where tanning and sunbathing began growing in popularity. It was at this time that one piece bathing suit designs shifted from functional and practical to adding more decorative features. Necklines plunged at the back, sleeves disappeared and sides were cut away and tightened. Once again, fashion wins! The looks, design and aesthetics of the swimsuit began to matter more to women than merely being something to wear in the water to cover their skin! Ah, hail the fashion divas that take practical, necessary garments and make them chic, cool clothes to behold!

Look like “the one” in a one piece bathing suit!

Even in contexts still today, a two piece swimsuit is regarded by some as immodest and controversial, with a one piece swimsuit being mandatory, as in the case of most school swimming events, Olympic women’s swimming and other international swimming events and competitions.

Beach baby, beach baby there on the sand…oh how I adore the fabulous one piece bathing suit that you are wrapped in!

“We’re planning to take a fun, festive, much needed vacation at the Jersey Shore.”

“This calls for splurging on a few new bathing suits that you will adore.”

“I think I’ll go for the one piece swimsuit to help keep tan lines away.”

“You’ll turn every head on the shore when you wear a stylish one piece each day.”

“I think I’ll buy one red, one black and one rainbow, with slinky slits and cutaways.”

“You’ll be the belle of the beach and you won’t want to come home. Vacation all the way!”

One Piece Bathing Suits: Grab yourself a beach ball, slip into your slinky one piece bathing suit and be a true bathing suit beauty that is the most noticed gal on the shore.  Need I say more?

How we choose to wear our hair reveals much more about us than our basic personality. The texture, shine, vitality and thickness of our hair can reveal if we are vibrant and healthy, or perhaps show that our bodies are lacking in essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Often times our health on the inside of us is revealed on the outside through the condition of our hair.

Gorgeous, shiny hair is intrinsically linked to beauty! Did you know that each strand of your hair is a protein filament that grows from the follicles around the dermis layer of your skin? This is no surprise, as one of the main nutrients our bodies need to provide us with the shimmery, healthy looking head of hair that we crave is protein. Two other nutrients needed to feed your hair from the inside out are Vitamin B12 and iron. Also, drinking lots of water will help your hair to grow and maintain a radiant shine.

Photo Source: Unsplash

No matter how you cut and style your hair, we all have a certain basic hair type that we are born with: straight, wavy, curly and kinky/coiled. If you want to know your natural basic hair type, wash and condition your hair and then let it air dry, without brushing, blow drying or adding gels and mousse to your hair. Your hair will either dry straight, wavy, curly or kinked/coiled. Sometimes it’s fun to change your basic hair type using curling irons, hair straighteners, etc. but all hair types are beautiful and you should love the hair that you have!

If you adore your hair, yet prefer to change it up once in a while, let a Mobile Styles professional hair stylist doll up your hair with a cut, style, color change, highlight or weave. Your glorious head of hair will thank you for a much needed new look, which gives you a “new you!”

Steps to Ensure a Gorgeous, Shiny, Healthy Head of Hair:

1. Wash and Condition Your Hair: This doesn’t need be done everyday, but should be done on most days. When the shampoo instructions say “lather, rinse, repeat” you are better off to only lather once. Shampooing too much can strip your hair of essential natural oils needed for hair strength and shine.
2. Argan Oil Really Works: Use a shampoo and conditioner that contains argan oil, which will make your hair look shiny and healthy.
3. Vitamin E: Liquid Vitamin E applied to your scalp can help increase circulation to the scalp, which will make for stronger, shinier hair.
4. Use a Soft Bristle Brush: Combs and hard bristle brushes can tug at your hair, causing breakage and split ends. A soft bristle brush will prevent breakage and draw natural oils from your scalp to the ends of your hair.
5. Eat a Balanced, Healthy Diet: To ensure a healthy, happy, gorgeous, shiny head of hair your body needs protein, iron, Vitamin B12, Omega 3 fatty acids and water.

Feed your body, hair and skin from the inside out to obtain true health and glamour, and that, dear fashion divas, is what it’s all about.

Much like beauty is revered worldwide, so is great, glamorous hair. Women and men “getting their hair done” is a trend and luxury that will always be with us. Like the clothing we choose to dress in, how we style and wear our hair reveals an area of our personality that shines through for the world to see. Show them your health, desires and vitality by showing off your magnificent, gorgeous, shiny mane.

There’s no denying that in the world of hairstyles, bangs are absolutely adorable. Bangs, also known as fringe, are made by a shaped cutting of the front part of the hair so that it lays over the forehead. Bangs can be cut fairly straight, at or above the eyebrows, but can also be ragged or ruffled, wispy, spiked up with hair gel, mousse or wax, swept to the side, or cut longer to fall over the eyes.

No matter how you choose to wear your bangs, haircuts with bangs look bold, beautiful and bouncy! Bangs can be alluring, provocative, cute, fashionable, high fashion, sexy, youthful and fun.

If you love bangs but don’t feel confident to cut your own hair, let a Mobile Styles hair professional give you the stunning hairstyle you long to wear.

Common Styles of Bangs:

1. Straight Across or Full Bangs
2. Side Swept Bangs
3. Blunt Bangs
4. See-Through or Wispy Bangs
5. Layered Bangs
6. Arch or Rounded Bangs
7. Parted Bangs
8. Baby Bangs
9. Brow Skimming Bangs

If you’re used to forging forward with a bare forehead, yet somewhere deep inside of you bangs are banging to get out, take the bang plunge. If you tend to desire a more conservative look, yet you want to try a banging bang hairstyle, you can go to your favorite beauty supply store and buy clip on bangs. This serves a couple of purposes: you can see if you do indeed rock your look with fashionable bangs and, if you don’t want to go as permanent as cutting your hair, you can periodically clip in the bangs whenever you feel sassy enough to do so.

Change your current hairstyle and wear adorable bangs for awhile!

No matter which way they hang, you can’t go wrong with gorgeous bangs!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. In my fashion and beauty opinion, the two cosmetic items that are most important to add glamour, allure and magic to the face are mascara and lipstick! If you can only choose two makeup items to put in your cosmetic bag, choose those two and your fabulous face will thank you.

Long, thick, luscious eyelashes area a sign of health and beauty. Long, thick eyelashes not only look beautiful, but they draw out the appeal and allure of your eyes. Your eyelashes are to your eyes what a fabulous frame is to a picture; they highlight the overall look.

An eyelash is one of the hairs that grows at the edge of the eyelid. Eyelashes protect the eye from debris and perform some of the same functions as whiskers do on a cat or mouse, in the sense that they are sensitive to being touched, thus providing a warning that an object (dust, hair, etc.) is near the eye, which then closes reflexively.

Items needed to capture the essence and glamour of long, heathy eyelashes are mascara, an eyelash brush and if preferred, an eyelash curler. If you do use an eyelash curler, don’t press and close the grips too hard, as this can cause eyelashes to pull out.

Mascara Fun Fact: Mascara is a cosmetic commonly used to enhance the eyelashes. Mascara darkens, thickens, lengthens and helps to define the eyelashes. Mascara is available in three forms (liquid, cake, cream), and most contain the basic ingredients of oils, waxes and preservatives.  The thicker the coats of mascara applied, the thicker and more full your eyelashes will look.

For the most dramatic eyelash look of all, jet black mascara outdoes them all. However, colored mascara can be fun to experiment with and wear when you’re feeling unique, magical and whimsical!

Tips for Growing Long, Lush, Healthy Eyelashes:

  1. Vitamin E, Iron, Vitamin B12 – Just like your body, hair needs protein, iron and Vitamin B12 to stay strong and healthy. Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant that adds to healthy hair growth. Eyelashes are hair, so they need to be fed nutrients just like the hair on your head.
  2. Biotin (Vitamin H) – Promotes hair growth, texture and thickness.
  3. Petroleum Jelly – If you remove your mascara before you go to sleep, then apply petroleum jelly to your bare eyelashes and leave on overnight while you sleep, this will help your eyelashes to grow faster, thicker and stronger.
  4. Castor Oil/Olive Oil – These oils help to promote hair growth.
  5. Enriched Mascara – Many mascaras that are available for purchase today include lash boosting serums, botanicals and pro-vitamin enriched formulas.

Bat your eyes in lovely, long eyelashes!

Long eyelashes are considered a sign of beauty in many cultures. Did you know that you can enhance your eyelashes artificially, either by applying false eyelashes or using eyelash extensions? Permanent eyelash tints have also become a popular procedure provided in many salons. It is also possible to get eyelash transplants, which are similar in nature to hair transplantation done on the head. Since the eyelash hair is transported from the head, the new eyelashes will continue to grow.

Eyelash Fun Fact: The invention of the photograph and motion picture launched mascara’s popularity and usage in the United States. Motion pictures advertised a new standard of beauty and sex appeal. Famous actresses of the classic cinema era, such as Theda Bara, Pola Negri, Clara Bow, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Bette Davis and Jean Harlow depended heavily on dramatic mascara applications for their glamorized appearances, which the mainstream public began to mimic.

Today, mascara is often used on a daily basis around the world. In 2016 alone, U.S. consumers spent 335.6 million dollars on the top ten leading mascara brands.

Yes, beauty is a billion dollar business!

For the animal lovers out there, eyelashes, being hair, are found on mammals. Camels have eyelashes that are remarkably long and thick. Horses and cows have long eyelashes also. Inherited eyelash problems are common in some breeds of dogs and horses. Not much different than people!

Eyelash Fun Fact: The average eyelash takes about seven to eight weeks to grow back if pulled out, and constant pulling may lead to permanent damage, stunting hair growth.

Eyelashes bedazzling and beguiling being lush, lovely, luxurious and long are truly a fashion and beauty bomb!

“Baby, baby, baby, bat your lovely, lush, long eyelashes at me.”

“I’m flattered you’re admiring my luxurious eyelashes, you see.”

“Are your eyelashes naturally that long, or could your lashes be fake?”

“These are my own lashes coated with mascara. Black mascara takes the cake.”

“Your extra long lashes add to the allure, appeal and attractiveness of your eyes.”

“Yes. The longer the lashes, the larger your eyes appear in size.”

It makes no difference if your hair length preference is long or short, there is no denying that sleek, silky, straight hair looks fabulous! Lustrous, smooth, straight hair frames all face shapes and wears well with all types of clothing and garments. Even hats!

What exactly is this “hair” that we all love and crave and spend so much time washing, drying, styling and cutting? Hair is a protein filament that grows from follicles found in the dermis. Hair is one of the defining characteristics of mammals. The human body, apart from areas of glabrous skin, is covered in follicles which produce thick terminal and fine vellus  hair. Most common interests in hair is focused on hair growth, hair types and hair care, but hair is also an important biomaterial primarily composed of protein, notably alpha-keratin.

Curls are glorious and represent a girl with her sugar and spice, but straight, sensuous, sexy hair always looks nice!

For a knock-out look that will bang one out of the park, wispy or blunt bangs worn with straight hair look youthful, playful and fabulous!

Hair Fun Fact: The word “hair” usually refers to two distinct structures: the hair follicle (the part beneath the skin), and the hair shaft, which is the hard filamentous part that extends above the skin surface. Hair fibers have a structure consisting of several layers, starting from the outside: the cuticle, the cortex and the medulla.

Each and every strand of hair is made up of the cuticle, cortex and medulla.

Silky straight hair, when flowing down the back, can cause an eye popping, alluring heart attack! Sheer straight beauty.

How do you obtain straight hair, especially if your hair tends to be naturally wavy or curly?

Three Ways to Straighten Your Hair:

  1. Using a hot iron or flat iron
  2. Using a blow dryer or hair dryer
  3. Using natural ways

Hot irons work well because they provide heat, and heat acts as a hair straightener. If you take small sections of your hair, and run the hot/flat iron down each section from the scalp to the ends, your hair will obtain the silky straight texture that you are trying to create.

Hair dryers and blow dryers work much the same way. If you take a sturdy, good styling brush and place the blow dryer on your roots, then take the brush the entire way down to your ends, keeping the blow dryer moving along with the brush, your hair will automatically straighten. This is why if your hair is damp and wavy, applying heat from the blow dryer and continually brushing the hair, the waves will be removed.

For cost effective flat irons and blow dryers that work magical hair wonders, why not try one of these items?

Straight Hair Fashion Tip: For those of you with brittle or damaged hair, you can still obtain glamorous, silky, straight tresses naturally! Good news!

WAYS TO STRAIGHTEN YOUR HAIR NATURALLY:

  1. Brush wet hair until it dries.
  2. Wrap wet hair tightly. You can wrap your wet hair in a silk scarf and sleep on it to reduce frizz.
  3. Roll your hair. This works with large rollers. Let your hair dry completely before you remove the rollers, then brush.
  4. Ponytails. Divide damp hair into two low ponytails, then add additional elastics every inch or so down the ponytail to hold the hair together. When the hair is dry, remove the ponytails and elastic. Brush to straighten.
  5. Twist hair into a bun. Wrap damp hair into a bun and don’t cover…let your hair air dry, the brush out.

To all of these methods, add a few drops of sweet almond or coconut oil to tame frizz and smooth out the look. For selfie or magazine ready hair, spray hair gloss over the hair. Beautiful, alluring and easy hair care!

Straight hair is chic, stylish, trendy and classy, for a head of hair that mixes sweet school girl with savvy and sassy!

Four Types of Hair Classifications:

Sleek, straight hair for the long and short of it!

“Your hair is so straight and soft. May I run my fingers through your tresses?”

“You can look but don’t touch. Would you want me pawing all your dresses?”

“I would think hair that straight would look thin, but your hair is thick and full.”

“My hair is also chic, shiny and glimmering….never breaking, dry or dull.”

“Is your hair naturally straight or do you style it to fall luxuriously straight down?”

“I use a flat iron strand by strand for a hairstyle that works in business and around town.”

Straight Hair: A classic hairstyle that needs no explanation…either for the long or short of it!
