Ever since getting my iPhone and experimenting with apps like Snapchat and Instagram, I found myself taking more selfies and viewing myself in this way more regularly. It made me really look at myself and assess the aspects of my face and, in time, I realised that I actually really like the way that I look not just in the strategically angled and well lit photos that we take of ourselves.
We should consider the people who know how to love deeply or are positive influences or even people who are warriors of peace more beautiful than the stick skinny starved models we see on the runways.
It's hard to feel good about yourself when you're getting beauty advice from a gorgeous girl half your age with perfect everything. But then we discovered Lyle Reimer and fell in love with his astonishing yet cheeky, over-the-top beauty and fashion inspired posts that push boundaries, cultivate creativity and keep us laughing all the way to the MAC counter!
As temperatures soar, so do the chances of your makeup melting, fading, settling into creases, and sliding off your face.
White eyeliner is a fresh and modern take on an old classic. It's super easy to wear and perfect for summer days and nights. The trick to making this look effortless is to keep the rest of your makeup simple. You want those eyes to pop!
sually, I work out 4 times a week, and I eat healthily, But, for one week during every month, I am, shall we say, less than vigilant with my food choices! Obviously I don't want the fact that I fall to pieces once a month to sabotage all my other anti-ageing efforts. It's scary to think that for 12 weeks of the year I eat junk and empty calories that do my body no good at all.
Making huge, sweeping generalisations about the particulars of a person's lifestyle based on how they look is not only fist-gnawingly unfair, it's preventing overweight people from getting the medical care they need and deserve (and it's keeping the Daily Mail in business).
Being a tween or young adult can be rough, ridiculously confusing, and generally uncomfortable. (Hell, being an adult can be too.) Growing up, experiencing changes in your body, and feeling your crazy hormones running amok create a feeling of complete unease in your own skin. This summer, I ran a class called Girls' Lifestyle Camp for girls between the ages of 10 and 13.
I've always been a bit self-conscious about people taking my picture; especially when the photographer asks me to smile more; unbeknownst that I have a condition which weakens my facial muscles.
Sun worshipping is a pastime looked forward to by all when summertime rolls around. In a quest for brown skin and the desire to return to work with a golden sun kissed glow, many of us can get carried away sunbathing in intense midday sunshine. But did you know that overexposure to the sun causes serious irreparable damage to your skin?
"We are all beautiful." "Everyone is beautiful to somebody." It's cheerful stuff. It builds the self-esteem, makes people feel valued, and spreads joy and happiness across the Internet. It's also bullcrap.
You don't need the salary of Cindy Crawford to look like Cindy Crawford. You also cannot believe everything you read on Google. With that said, there are hundreds of at home beauty tips using natural and essential oils, and other beauty products found at your local pharmacy. In the case that I might inundate you, here are just a few of them that I recommend.
In my 20s (usually after a night of partying) I would occasionally fall asleep with a full face of makeup. However, as the years have progressed, my need for a squeaky clean face has become important to me. Between the sweat, sun and activities of the hot summer months, I feel even more compelled to take care of my mature skin.
We think you're gorgeous just as you are, but let's face it -- we are inundated on a daily basis with pictures of stars, models and "it" girls looking flawless. Pretty much every image you see posted from our pop culture icons is manipulated to look cooler or prettier by a filter or two.
Life is a series of deaths and rebirths. Death happens to our bodies every minute of every day yet; this process goes unnoticed because we are busy living life. Cells die. Skin dies. But the thought of the ultimate death stops us dead in our tracks.
