Try It Tuesday~Bare Minerals Veil

Try It Tuesday

Here we are for Try It Tuesday. I tried something different. Since I have severely, hyper-sensitive asthma I am unable to wear many cosmetics for they trigger an asthma attack. Please be clear, I have ASTHMA, not allergies.  When Miss Trisha returned from NY during Fashion Week she attended the IFBCON and  brought lots of swag and other goodies for her intern. One of those items was Bare Minerals, Mineral Veil

I tested it very carefully so as not to over expose my breathing to the powder at first. The results were good. I was still breathing. No choking. YAY! So today I took photographs of my left side as you see above. The first photo, on the left, is without any makeup whatsoever. The photo on the right is with a fine, light application of the Bare Minerals Veil powder applied. Although subtle, I do feel their is a significant difference in the over all appearance of my skin. I like it. And I wanted to share this with you too.

Just to be sure, I just had to photograph the right side of my face as well. The first photo, on the left, is without any makeup whatsoever. The photo on the left is with a fine, light application of the Bare Minerals Veil powder applied. See below.

Now, to add to this I want to say how happy I am to be able to wear this as it also has a broad spectrum SPF 25. This is always important to anyone who is out in the sun. I developed “brown patches/spots” along my jawline from a combination of sun exposure and side effect of respiratory medications.

I don’t have a big issue with my skin. I am who I am and what you see is what you get. It’s a family thing. But I do have to admit that I’m liking that this Bare Minerals Veil is “asthma friendly” for me and at the same time it smooths out my skin tone.

I do see that my photography is lacking but I hope you are able to see what I’m referring to. Do you have cosmetic health issues or just general challenges with makeup? Let us know if you do, we will be most happy to help. Everyone should feel beautiful whether they do or do not wear makeup.

Spectacular Sunday~Spectacular Eyes

Spectacular Sunday~Asian Beauty

Here we are! Another spectacular Sunday. We have some eyes that will amaze you. Dramatic eye make up. Must-see beauty.

I realize this  may seem not-so-subtle but for a memorable effect it is perfect to design as an accessory to your fashion for classy events.

This design is perfect for runway shows, fashion events and parties as well.

This is definitely dramatic. Would be excellent to wear to a theatrical show or something similar. Possibly even a period genre activity.

Here I see a design that is just like the model, happy, bold and fun! For any occasion.

This bold and beautiful look is perfect for an evening out for fine dining and leisure.

Once again, a fresh and fun look for a fresh and fun face.

Saucy, sexy, sultry. Bold color and vivid expression over the eyes draw you deep into the look.

 I am so drawn to Asian beauties, their clothing fashions and their makeup as well. This is no exception.

Proud as a peacock and the bright blue eyes to accentuate the look.

Blast From The Past Throwback Thursday’s

Blast From The Past Thursday’s
The 80’s
Did you ever think that the past would repaper and the fashion of the 80’s would take you by storm.  Legwarmers, over sized tops worn with leggings, long skirts that are worn with belts. Boots with fringe, stiletto’s with all sorts of bright colors and sparkling glitter.  They are also wearing boots with legwarmers. 
 
With all the ways you can wear the styles from the 80’s they look fashionable and very chick not to mention comfortable.
I was born in the 80’s and I remember the movies that came out in the 80’s some of the clothing and the styles we look at and think what were they thinking and low and behold they have came back with a POW and have knocked fashion off the charts.  A few movies that have some great styles are: The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Sixteen Candles, The Goonies.
         
So now that we have visited some of the  great things that have been blast form the past remember the next time you go to a clothing store and you pick up a article of clothing and think what would I this with think it will go with whatever you want it to .. that is the great thing about fashion it is always in.

Hattily Ever After

Hattily Ever After

 Ever wonder if hats are your thing?  Well just put one on and look in the mirror.  Do you look good, do you look bad.. Buy it, take it home and get into the outfit that you are going to wear for your outing. If you’re a lady put your makeup on if you aren’t already wearing it.  Put that hat on and check yourself out in the mirror. I know it’s going to sound absolutely silly, but totally do it; if anything you will laugh. Make sexy faces at yourself in the mirror. Think “I am the hottest thing since the next Top Model”.  Look at yourself and say “OOOOH! Yeah I made a great choice. I am so happy with this purchase.”
                         

Now for all you men out there…. you all know that you love hats and have at least two if not more.  You probably have your favorite one that you always wear and it is so worn out you are saying “I can’t get rid of it I have had it through all the best times of my life and to part with it would be unheard of.” Men, you have hats are of all sorts; anywhere from ball caps to dress hats, to stocking caps.          

 

At first men would wear hats just to protect themselves from the sun.  Nowadays they wear them to stay warm or to look supper sexy in their duds.

                                                         
       
It doesn’t matter your age, your culture or if you are female or male.  You are Sexy, Beautiful and Worthy!

Fashion Friday~Faux Fur Frenzy

With colder temperatures we’d like to warm things up a bit by looking over some of the
choices available in the department of Faux Fur. Here is some of what we discovered:

We tip our hats to these…

  

            We’re sticking our neck out to these inviting scarves:

These coats are a wrap for stylish warmth…
And now it’s time to give things the “boot”. 
                                       
   

                               
When the temperatures make you say burrr, think of furrr.

Beauty Train Cases
