In the world of beauty, I feel the two cosmetic items that are the most important to add glamour, allure and magic to your face are mascara and lipstick. If I was ever stranded on a desert Island, alone with only myself and my makeup bag, I would hope my bag contained a tube of mascara and a tube of lipstick. A true glamour girl enjoys dolling herself up for all occasions!

Long, thick, luscious eyelashes are a sign of health and beauty. Not only do lush eyelashes look beautiful, they also draw out the appeal and allure of your eyes. Your eyelashes are to your eyes what a fabulous frame is to a photograph; an aesthetic highlight that tops your look off!

For the most dramatic eyelash look of all, jet black mascara outdoes them all. However, colored mascara is fun to experiment with and something different to 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, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin E to stay strong and healthy. Eyelashes are hair and they need to be fed nutrients, just like the hair on your head. Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant that adds to healthy hair growth.
2. Biotin (Vitamin H): Promotes hair growth, texture and thickness.
3. Petroleum Jelly: Apply petroleum jelly to mascara free eyelashes and leave on overnight, while you sleep. This helps your eyelashes grow faster, thicker and stronger.
4. Castor Oil/Olive Oil: These oils help promote hair growth.
5. Enriched Mascara: Many mascaras that are available for purchase today include lash boosting serums, botanicals and pro-vitamin enriched formulas.

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 transplantations done on the head.

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.

Who said beauty isn’t a billion dollar business?

Eyelash Fun Fact: The average eyelash takes about seven to eight weeks to grow back if pulled out!

Eyelashes bedazzling and beguiling being lush, lovely, luxurious and long are truly a fashion and beauty bomb! Bat your lengthened eyelashed peepers with pride, and open your eyes wide!

Make your eyes look twice their size! Long, lush eyelashes are a must!

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!

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.
