I Would NEVER Get Plastic Surgery but I Might Try....

Posted By zarabronwyn on Oct 18, 2012 at 10:55AM

Being in the fashion industry AND a writer who just had her, well, 30somethingish birthday, I am starting to notice a few "new" features that I didn't have years ago. Not really excited about these latest lines and lumps that have come to light, I decided to make a "non-invasive procedure bucket list". So if I ever get up the courage, these would be the first things to try, here goes:

Procedures that treat problem areas such as sagging skin, wrinkles, blemishes, cellulite, fat deposits, and unwanted hair – without the risks and complications of associated with invasive plastic surgeries. 

such as...

Getting rid of unsightly cellulite is easy thanks to the Accent laser, a hand-held device that generates radio waves that penetrate the lower skin layers of the skin. Fat particles are broken up with the resulting heat, and drained away through the body’s lymphatic system. Doesn't sound so bad, right?!?

We’ve all heard of Botox treatments, and heard the jokes on TV about them, but don’t let that scare you off. It’s just a simple little procedure in which Botox is injected into the muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. The result? Smooth, youthful facial skin! I'm gonna need a double. Ugh.

While we’re at it, don’t be scared off by the rather severe-sounding term “chemical peel”. People do it all the time, and it’s no big deal. An acid solution is applied to the skin, and the outer cell layers peel off. The result is exfoliated, healthy-looking skin. I'll need a shot of this too.

There are three available options for a chemical peel: Superficial, medium and deep peel. Ask for a professional opinion about which one is best suited for you.

Finally, you can look into collagen injections, which take on laugh lines, wrinkles, creases, crow’s feet, and acne scars. If you want fuller lips or cheeks, collagen may be the way to go. This will be my procedure of choice and it will be wonderful to actually have lips to put lipstick on again!

Maybe you’ve arrived at that age when it’s time to face the truth you see in the mirror every day – you’re starting to actually look your age. Well, you can push back against Father Time, if you’re ready to consider some fairly simple non-invasive procedures.

We’re talking about procedures that treat problem areas such as sagging skin, wrinkles, blemishes, cellulite, fat deposits, and unwanted hair – without the risks and complications of associated with invasive plastic surgeries.

Here are some of the more popular procedures you may consider.

You’re as young as you feel (without the pain!)– and you can look that way, too!

Know your man is cheating on you

Posted By laceywomen on Sep 23, 2010 at 6:49PM

As a woman we always have a special instinct that our man is not loyal and there is something wrong in the relationship. However we need to be sure before taking any serious step. Well, here's some help. We give you five visible signs to know if your partner is really cheating on you.

If your sex life is going slow, this proves your man is having the same fun somewhere outside. However, another reason could be his porn addiction. Sudden drop of interest in sex is definitely a sign of serious underlying issue. Deal with it before it's too late.

I generally access my husband's mobile phone and he seems to be ok with this. But in case he is avoiding calls in your presence or quickly replying to messages when he's with you? This may means there is something that he is trying to hide.

If your partner suddenly brings up someone from a opposite sex in a conversation and then try to skirt it with other discussion, it may be a sign of worry about you. If it's nothing fishy, he would never avoid talking about that person.

Mostly friends are aware about any extra marital relationships and most of them will stay loyal to him and ensure that you are not let in to this secret. No matter how much efforts they put in to hide from you but the signs of guilt will be evident enough on their face.

Frequent increase in outdoor trips with friends or official meeting can be a matter of worry. And is this all happening in a pattern that seems too odd? Listen to the warning signs in your head.

Act smart and be little observant to judge your partner.

Pastel and Purple EOTD

Hi everyone,

I did this eye this morning when I was going to work. I took a quick picture because I loved the makeup so much.

I'm wearing Laura Mercier - Foundation Primer Oil Free, Make Up For Ever, HD Foundation in 155 Medium beige mixed with a little Clinique - Face Bronzing Gel Tint.
To conceal my very little sleep I used Laura Mercier - Undercover Pot in no. 3 topped with MUFE lift concealer in no. 2 mixed with no. 3.
I used MAC paintpot in Soft Ochre, Illamasqua - Pure Pigment in Lust on my eyelid and under my eyelid I used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Pencil in Lust topped with Urban Decay - Deluxe Eyeshadow in Graffiti.
On my top waterline I'm wearing Urban Decay - 24/7 pencil in Zero and on my lower waterline I'm wearing Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Pencil in Lust again.
My mascara is Urban Decay - Eyelash Primer Potion followed by Dior - Diorshow Iconic Mascara in black.

Greyscale look with Sleek palette

Posted By CCee on Apr 3, 2010 at 7:30AM

Hi everyone,

I was at Nic's place Sunday and I did this amazing look that Pixiwoo had done on their youtube. So to get these eyes.... follow the tutorial in the video (the only difference is the colour brows because Nic's a blonde and I lightened the inner corners a little to hide her tiredness.

Sleek - i-Divine Palettes

Posted By CCee on Apr 3, 2010 at 7:29AM

Hi everyone,

I bought all the different Sleek palettes I could get my hands on, I love them! I saw Pixiwoo working these shadows and for the price you really get a lot of worth.
I'm going to be doing a lot of looks with these palettes in the next few weeks, so watch out for those.

Firstly I want to show you more about what I got.
These palettes contain 12 highly-pigmented pressed mineral-based eyeshadow shades. (of all palettes I took 2 pictures, one in sun or lamplight and one using a flash)

I got:
- Original i-Divine Palette (great purple, blues and greens and a few neutral colours)

- Storm i-Divine Palette (top row for natural, bottom for dramatic looks)

- Sunset i-Divine Palette (warm sunset type colours, golden browns and one bright blue)

- Acid i-Divine Palette (neon colours)

- Chaos i-Divine Palette (warm tinted colours)

- Curious i-Divine Palette (cold tined colours)

- Graphite i-Divine Palette (mainly blacks and greys with a irridescent colour sheen)

- Jewels i-Divine Palette (great bright yellow and warm tinted browns plus a few great blueish tints)

- Safari i-Divine Palette (mainly greens and browns)

There is one more palette out (but not for sale in my country) called Bohemian.

Blue Smokey

Posted By CCee on Apr 3, 2010 at 7:27AM

Hi everyone,

You guys wanted to see this blue eye as a tutorial:

I did this tutorial in bright and sunlight, so it looks a lot brighter then it is if you were to look at it in the shade... but in the shade I have to use a flash so that would undo the whole shade idea so.... imagine the colours being more muted then they are on my eye.
Final eye:

I'm going to do this tutorial with minimal writing because I need to go to sleep. I hope you guys like this step by step guide to the blue smokey eye.

Products I used on my eye:

(Laura Mercier eyelashcurler - Christian Dior 5 Coleurs in 140 Twilight - Dior Iconic Mascara in black - MAC pigment in Blue Storm - MAC 217 brush - Sephora Smudge brush - Sephora big eyeshadow brush - MAC paintpot in Soft Ochre - Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencils in Zero and Binge)

Eye with eyecream:

Soft Ochre Paint Pot by MAC as a base colour:

Binge Pencil as a colour base:


(apply to lid - blend crease with finger)

Apply the darkest blue from Twilight on the lid with the big eyeshadow brush and blend out with a blending brush.

Apply the lighter blue on top (blend to the crease but don't blend as high as the first blue you used)

Apply MAC Blue storm over the blue to bring a slight sparkle to the blue. (Adding colour tints over one another adds depth to the colour):

Curl lashes, add Zero liner to the waterlines and add mascara:

In direct sunlight:

I hope you enjoyed this picture tutorial.

Have a great Monday everyone!
