Right On Target, Beauty Concierges Now In Big Box Retail Store

Friday, October 19th, 2012

Women who want to learn all about the latest beauty products can now do so with the help of trained beauty concierges at Target. A Target retail store that is based in Chicago is launching the concept of providing customers with the assistance or trained beauty professionals who have knowledge about all of the cosmetic products that are offered on Target shelves. Customers can also receive samples from these trained beauty professionals, and they will be able to receive makeup tips from them too.

The trained beauty professionals are from a marketing agency that is based in New York City. The marketing agency, Brand Connections, now offers beauty consultants to chain stores like Target. Target has been testing out the new marketing strategy for about 10 months. If the strategy proves to be successful, then it plans on featuring the strategy at other retail stores around the country.

Target opened its first store 50 years ago in May 1962 in Roseville, Minn

The whole idea behind the new program is to provide customers with as much information as possible. The program aims to help customers become more knowledgeable about all of the products that are offered on the beauty department shelves at Target. If the program proves to be successful, then Target will be expanding it to over 400 stores throughout the country.

One of the ways in which this program will help customers is by helping them choose the right shade of make-up for their “daily look.” There are many women who shop for make-up at Target stores every day, and they may not know exactly which shade of lipstick is right for their daily look. A beauty concierge will then be able to help a woman choose the shade of lipstick that is best for the type of look that she wants to achieve. The beauty concierge can essentially help customers complete a total makeover.

A customer may also want to know more about the ingredients that are contained within certain beauty products. One of the tasks of the beauty concierge is to inform customers about all of the ingredients that are contained within beauty products. The beauty concierge understands all of the ingredients that can be found in beauty products. He or she may also be able to help you determine whether you are allergic to certain ingredients contained within beauty products. Lastly, the beauty concierge is able to provide customers with coupons for their future purchases on all types of beauty products.

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.

Beauty Trend Alert: White Eye Shadow –

Isn’t there something so glamourous and clean about a white eye shadow look? Gah, we love the simplicity and the elegant beauty it creates when applied just right on the eye.

Just Call Us Psychic: Colored Lashes Go Couture At Dior –

Did we call it, or did we call it? Back in February, we told you we had an inkling that colored mascaras were on their way back in with the stylish elite, and now we get word, via, that rainbow lashes were all the rage at Dior’s fall ’12 couture show.


It’s no secret that I’m a fan of colored highlights! I love pink, blue, even purple accented highlights! Especially since it’s summertime why not try the colors in your hair right… The only problem I found was that the colors washed out of my hair. I’ve featured hair chalk, which is amazing, but I also just saw in Sephora’s window Alterna night highlights. It’s highlights that wash out with shampoo!

Beauty Trend Weekly Rundown – July 23, 2012

Monday, July 23rd, 2012



Have you ever looked at a fashion trend, furrowed your brows, scrunched up your face and looked around as if to say, “Are you freaking kidding me?” Of course you have. Because outlandish, ugly, unrealistic fashion trends are everywhere. All it takes is one “it-girl” to get her picture taken in some ridiculous get-up and the trend becomes mass produced, marketed and deemed acceptable. We’re here to call foul on the village idiots who are perpetrating these trends.

Top 5 Summer Make Up Trends –

You don’t have to restrict summer only to outfits in floral prints and bright colours. Playing with make up is quite a fun pass time too. But if you don’t have much time to paint your face often, you can still stay stylish with these five beauty guidelines for this season.

Makeup Trends: Double-Winged Eye Liner –

Winged eyeliner can be seen nearly everywhere these days, from the eyes of the biggest stars on the red carpet to the top fashionistas on the streets. Each of these starlets prefers to sport their own version of this look, as seen in rainbow wings and cat-eye lids. While the traditional winged ear liner is still highly fashionable, there is a new trend arising. The double-winged eye liner gives the eyes an even bigger ‘oomph’ factor. Use these instructions to create your own double-winged eye style and experiment with various colors and shapes to fit a style that suits your individual personality.


Ever dreamed of highlighting your hair some fun bright color, but don’t have the guts to do it? Or maybe you have the guts, just don’t have the lifestyle to support this wild flair in your hair? What if I told you there is a way you can add some soft pink highlights in your fringe just for the day? Then maybe some purple within your layers, and a splash of blue, green, and aqua just at the tips and you can wash it out once you’re over it? This isn’t a dream, it is finally reality thanks to a new hot trend, Hair Shadowing. I recently wrote all about my experience with one of the shadow brands on the cutting edge for Latest Hairstyles. Learn all about it here!
