Fall 2012 Makeup Trend: Flushed Cheeks – The Style Dossier

Dick Page, Michael Kors lead makeup artist said, “It’s how you look if you’ve been skiing, or in a hot tub or having very good sex”, if that doesn’t make you want to get flushed, i don’t know what will! It’s a really easy look to achieve & I learned a quick technique that makes it THAT much easier.

Resolve Your Toe-bese Feet with Cosmetic Surgery

Friday, September 14th, 2012

In the summer months, it is easy to feel a bit self-conscious about one’s appearance. Everything from wearing a bikini to wearing open-toed sandals can make a man or woman feel a bit insecure. For the person who may have unsightly feet, there is no need for him or her to continue suffering. Cosmetic surgery now gives people the opportunity to literally slim down fat toes, remove extra padding from toes or even lengthen toes.

There has recently been a surge in the number of men and women pursuing surgery procedures for their feet in New York City. During the summer, men and women want their feet to look great in sandals. Getting one’s feet to look great is easy with the help of an experienced surgeon in the city. “Toe-besity” is an issue that cosmetic surgeons in New York City are willing to help in resolving. These cosmetic surgeons are aware of the latest procedures that can be used to slim down fat toes.

The “toe-besity” procedures can cost anywhere from $500 to $3,000. If you need to have a major surgery procedure, such as the removal of a toe, you will need to pay a couple thousand dollars. Some procedures are simple and only involve removing a bit of extra padding on the outside of toes.

One may also want to have toes or extra padding removed for the pain that they cause. The American Podiatric Medical Association is fully in support of cosmetic procedures that alleviate the pain that people feel in their feet. The procedures may also aid in the restoration of functions in the feet too.

Left- and right-footed shoes all over the world were identical until the nineteenth century, when the first sets were made in Philadelphia.

One of the other benefits of this new cosmetic surgery procedure is that patients are growing in self-confidence. They feel more confident in their appearance after they have this procedure. For women who love to wear open-toe heels, this surgery is sure to grow in popularity. Men who wear sandals also love the idea of slimming down their toes in order to have a more attractive appearance.

When you slim down your toes, you no longer have to worry about strange looks from others. You can feel beautiful with your newfound appearance. You can embrace this appearance and feel like you can wear any type of shoe during the summer. You should never feel like your fashion choices are restricted due to the shape or appearance of one of your physical attributes.

How to Get Gorgeous Daytime Cat Eyes Like Emma Stone

Friday, September 7th, 2012

Ever since Emma Stone showed the world that the cat eye look can be worn in the daytime, women everywhere are trying to replicate this look. When attempting to create the daytime cat eye look, it is essential to strike a balance between those dramatic smokey eyes and eyes that have very light eyeshadow. By combining the two, you can end up with a winning look just like the one that Emma Stone wore to the recent Los Angeles premiere for The Amazing Spider-Man.

The first step to creating the daytime cat eye look is to pick out a light eyeshadow. You should find a cream, white or pearl eyeshadow to use for the base color. A cream eyeshadow will blend nicely on your eyelids and will stay put for hours. You can try using the Chanel Illusion D’ombre in Fantasme eye shadow for the perfect look. You will also want to make sure that you blend a bit of the cream eye shadow on your brow line. The shimmering effect that this add will add a touch of beauty to your cat eye look.

The next step will be to apply liquid eyeliner to your lids. Try to use a fine line and outline the area just above your eyelashes. You can use a liquid eyeliner like the Revlon ColorStay Creme Gel Eye Liner in Black. This liquid eyeliner will stay on for hours. The size of the marker tool is also very helpful in drawing the perfect line. When you draw the line, you should extend it out beyond the end of your lash line. You will want to create a small wing at the end of your eyelid. You should make sure that the wing is no longer than the length of an eyelash. Otherwise, your look will be too dramatic for the day time.

Emma got her start in acting at eleven years old at the Valley Youth Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona, where she starred in over sixteen stage productions as well as performing the the theatre’s comedy improv troupe.

After you apply the liquid eyeliner, then you should use a mascara to add some volume to your lashes. This will add a touch of glamor to your day time look. You may also want to use an eyebrow pencil to add some definition to your brows. This can help you define your brows and achieve a more put together cat eye look.

Add some fun to your daily look by trying out the cat eye look. Having cat eyes can add some spice on those days when you want a little extra boost.
