Show off your legs
With the holiday party season upon us, People Style Watch offers tips to help bare your legs so they will be smooth, bronzed and glowing.
Exfoliate: Soften skin with a scrub that cleanses and smooths. Apply it in circular motions from your feet up. For better results, use a loofah or body brush.
Bronze: Get an instant glow with a temporary bronzing gel. A matte formula minimizes imperfections in a natural way. Make sure to apply it in front of a full-length mirror to avoid streaks. If you want a more-subdued color, mix it with moisturizer.
Luminize: For added sparkle, finish with a shimmery powder or cream. To make legs look extra-long and lean, apply it just down the center of your thighs and calves.
Allure magazine talked with Jeanine Lobell, a makeup artist and the founder of Stilla Cosmetics about how to organize a makeup bag.
“Foundation inevitably leaks, shadows crumble and powder explodes — I've learned how to minimize the mess,” she says.
Look inside: A bag with nylon lining is easier to clean than a leather or cotton one. Keep makeup-remover wipes in there so, if anything does spill, you can clean it up quickly.
Double-check: It sounds simple, but the crucial step in preventing disaster is tightening all of the caps. Any compacts with iffy hinges should go in a plastic bag. Eyeliner caps always pop off, so I prefer twist-up pencils.
Sort brushes: Stash brushes by type in long, narrow, snack-size bags, so dark shadow brushes don't contaminate your blush brush.
Start over: About once a month, “I empty my bag, flip it inside out, and give it a good wipe-down with a brush cleaner and paper towel. And four times a year, I do an overhaul: I keep my concealer, bronzer and cheek color, but to update things, I slip in a new lipstick or shadow that's hot for the season,” says Lobell.
