The Worst Mascaras Out There

Hello Divas!

I just found this post from NBC on the Thirteen Horrible Mascaras out there. I have not used any of those but based on those reviews I will be staying away from them.

I am currently using L'Oreal Beauty Tubes mascara and I love it so I will stick to what works for me.

Look Younger Tip: Get Rid Of The Black Dress

Hello Divas!

The Little Black Dress is a staple of many women's closets but the latest findings show that it can actually make your face look older, even while hiding those flaws in your figure. This is because black can highlight the shadows and creases in your face and make you appear to be up to five years older.

It is better to wear royal blue or a blue-green color to keep within the LBD theme but without the dark shadows being cast on your face.

If you do choose to go all black always remember to wear a pop of color close to the face to take away from the dreary black.

Beauty Tip Of The Day: Buy Perfume In Small Bottles

Hello Divas!

The beauty tip of the day is to Buy Perfume In Small Bottles. I know it makes financial sense to buy a larger bottle because you get a lower price per ounce.

However you only use a small amount of scent each time you more than TWO sprays right!!!!!

This means that air gets into the bottle and that changes the fragrance over time. Have you noticed that after a few months your favorite perfume no longer smells as nice but tends to smell either more like alcohol or just like a cheaper scent.

That is because air is in the bottle and is changing the chemical composition.

So the best way to preserve your scent is to buy a smaller bottle that will get used up faster. Yes it might be more expensive to buy the smaller bottle but you end up saving because you no longer have to throw out perfume that has gone bad.
