Do you know what colors are your best?

There are two different kind of colors...ones that look great on you and those that don't!

Do you know which colors are your best and why?

A good color is a color you wear that makes your face light up and simply glow. It's a feel good color (kind of a color vitamin, if you will). A bad color is one you like, but try as you may you just don't look or feel quite right when you are wearing it. You might even be asked if you are feeling ill.

A BIG part of style is knowing which colors are your best--and then wearing them! Knowing your "Seasonal Colors" will improve your style because it will allow you to PLAN a cohesive wardrobe (which will save you money). You might even find in your seasonal color palette a NEW color you didn't know would look good on you! Perhaps it will become a new favorite of yours this spring!

These two women are from different 'color seasons' and therefore what looks fabulous on one, 
would not work for the other...

I offer a Seasonal Color Analysis  to help you always wear your most flattering colors!

What Exactly Are IN the Products We Use?

For years I've used Oil of Olay and Cetaphil for washing and moisturizing my face every morning and night. My skin looks pretty good, but it could look better (I think). 

So, I was reading this post from a Gluten-free blogger (did you know I've been gluten-free since May?) and she was questioning the ingredients of her facial cleanser (Cetaphil) regarding whether or not it contains gluten...and by the way: WHAT ARE ALL THESE INGREDIENTS IN THE PRODUCTS WE USE ANYWAYS??? ARE THEY ALL NECESSARY?

Are these ingredients in the products we use on our bodies on a daily basis naturally derived or have we all become one big science experiment?

Check out Gluten Hates Me and the auto-fill response she got back from Cetaphil regarding their facial cleanser. It is shocking that companies takes this attitude. I thought this product was A1 because they have the backing of "dermotologists" and this sounded good to me! Link to Gluten Hates Me blog posting on Cetaphil 

Are you worried that as consumers we are being exposed to a wide variety of chemicals? (I am)...Or do you feel this is all hype and it really doesn't matter? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Her Fashions as Big as Her Voice...

Whitney Houston whose glittering fashion statements were as big as her voice, has died at the age of 48.
This news of her passing is shocking and quite sad. She had such a beautiful gift of song. The voice of an angel. If you were on American Idol you were advised not to even attempt to sing a 'Whitney Houston' song...because you won't even come close and you will just embarrass yourself. She had a special place in music history.

If only she could have pulled together her private life...because she almost had it all (just like the song she use to sing).

Whitney Houston was also at center stage when it came to 80's fashions. She was a "Fashion Diva" for her time. She was someone whose glitzy styles I admired back then. She was gorgeous and every woman wanted to look as stylish as her!

Peace be with you Whitney. You will be missed by so many. Hopefully you are in a better place now.

Perfect Blush Application Every Time!

After one crazy/scary week (with 2 family members in the hospital) things are starting to get back to normal at my household and everyone is thankfully now on the mend.

Why not post something fresh on my blog? What better way to get back into the swing of things again.

One of the most confusing makeup applications is: blush. Aside from wearing eye shadow correctly, women really miss the boat when it comes to makeup application of blush. So I figured I'd clear things up today!

Perfect blush application is all about placement. Ideally you want the burst of color to be right on the apples of your cheeks.

Where are the apples of my cheeks? A fool-proof way to find your cheek's 'apples' is to nestle the brush directly under your eye pupil and across from the tip of your nose. Then blend up and out two inches.

Give this a try and you'll find that you get perfect blush application every time!

Love, Leslie MSP
