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!

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
