Pink Lipstick.....The Hot New Look

Pink lipstick is the new hot color and it certainly goes a long way by giving an instant lift to your face. Pink comes in various hues of magenta, bold fuchsia and cotton candy but they all have a distinctive girly touch and glamour. The color pink not only lends an elegance and glow to your overall appearance but is also soft and innocent. Just the perfect party wear with a touch of subtle eye make up, pink lipstick is a must have in your makeup bag.....

The whole trick is wearing it right......

a. If you are planning to wear pink lipstick in the daytime, then go easy on your eye make up by keeping it toned down and simple

b. The same rule applies for the blush. You do not want your whole face giving out a pink look. With your pink lipstick, you can add a dash of nude blush on to your cheeks as this will balance out the pink in your lips without making your cheeks appear too dull.

c. You can always use a bold pink during the daytime if you can pull it off but if you are hesitant then it is best to reserve this for the evening.

d. Hot bright pink lipsticks are the perfect alternative to the red lips, particularly, if you do not fancy the red. It is the color for those daring and fun nights when you just want it pink all the way.

e. Get the shade that is closest to your skin undertones. If you have cooler undertone skin, then select the one which has blue undertone. If you have warmer undertone skin, then go in for the orange and red based undertone.

f. Just because you are very fair skinned does not mean that you can not pull off pink color. It should not matter you what others are saying, as long as you fantasize the color and feel that it looks good on you, go for it.

g. If you feel ridiculous wearing pink and you do not feel at all comfortable then do not use it. There is no point to buy a shade which you are not sure to pull off. This is a trend that is dramatic and most people may not be comfortable in wearing it, so if you are uncomfortable with the whole idea then you should not put it on.

h. If you are not afraid to experiment with the color then have the confidence to flaunt it as well. One of the best way to come out of the comfort zone. In fact, soon you may find yourself tuned to the color pink.

i. Always test out the lipstick before you buy it as this will give you an idea of whether the color really agrees with you or if you would prefer in another hue.

j. Ask for samples at all times. This way you can try them out in the natural light rather than store lit lights. This way, you can be sure of which hue works for you best and how long after applying you still feel nice or uncomfortable with the color.

Choosing the right fragrance to suit your personality

Applying a good fragrance gives a lift to your personality. If you smell good, you feel good. It gives you a positive attitude of looking at things thereby attracting people towards your impressive and refreshing natural appearance. Apart from personal satisfaction and a boost to your outlook, using the same family of perfume can add a signature statement to your personality as well. However, to be able to adapt to the right fragrance which would best suit your personality, you have to have full knowledge about perfumes and their specific detailing. Today we would discuss all important and relevant details which would provide you with full knowledge of all about perfumes.

When would you like to wear it?

Certain perfumes are designed and conceited for specific time-periods of the day. Usually lighter fragrances are opted for day-wear while the heavier and huskier ones are kept for evenings and night-outs. Some intense ones are even chosen and applied to add a fun-factor and simply to have a good time out with friends stretching upto late nights.

How much do you want to spend?

A wide range of perfumes ranging from low to high price tags are available on-store and before getting on to buy one, it is very important to consider and decide how much you intend to shell out for it. Once you are at the store, it is better to let the staff dealing in perfumes know of your budget so that he can help you through your endeavor and give you the best of deals as per your spending capacity. However, if you do not want assistance, prices on perfume bottles are clearly displayed to help you with your self-service principle.

Why does it not smell so nice on me?

Regarding perfumes, it is not a hard and fast rule that if something smells good on someone else, it would also smell good on your skin. Likewise may be a fragrance that you love to wear might not suit someone else’s personality. The reason behind this is that fragrances react differently and uniquely on different skin types or under separate set of conditions. It may differ due to one’s body temperature, diet, climatic conditions and so on.

Do they all smell the same?

When you are at a perfume store with a pre-set mind to choose one for yourself, do not commit the mistake of trying too many fragrances in one go, not to exceed more than 3 at a time. this might make your nose become de-sensitized. Trying more than a handful of new fragrances can cause smell fatigue which might block your sense of smell, thereby completely confusing you. The best way to get rid of this situation is to opt for a traditional method of smell break by simply inhaling coffee beans which neutralizes your nasal sense organ. However, if you do not have access to coffee beans, simply take a deep breath and immediately smell your sleeves or cuffs after that. This will clear your nose passage of any lingering smell or perfume notes.

Another very important point to remember while trying out new fragrance or after shave notes is to always apply them on one's wrist as it gives the truest presentation of the fragrance as it would reflect on you.

The best way to find the right perfume

After having collected all the relevant details and knowledge about choices of perfumes, if you still feel perplexed, the best and the simplest method is to ask a perfume shop member of staff, who is well-versed and fully trained in his department of work, to help you out.

Gist Gist Gist......Lets Gist...


While filming in Asaba, the Delta State capital , the actress lost her cool, seized a fan’s blackberry phone and guess what? Smashed it!
Reason, the fan, a make-up artiste on the set was filming her while in action acting a romantic scene.

Insiders who witnessed the shameful drama on the set of a movie by Amaco Brothers entitled In The Mind, says that all was well until a make-up artiste on set, a female, obviously enthralled by the callipygian decided to record her favourite star on her blackberry phone as she was acting a romantic scene.

Sources say she was in the thick of acting when she noticed what was happening and jumped off set and charged at the make-up artiste. Slapped her across the face, grabbed her black berry phone and smashed it shouting: “This is how it all begins, this is how it all begins. Before you know it they will start writing lies about me in the press!”

So angry was Mrs. Okojie that it took the entire cast to calm her down and she only agreed to continue shooting on one condition that the said make-up artiste be dismissed from the set.

“I am really shocked,” the said make-up artiste moaned as she sobbed obviously in shock at Mercy’s attack. “I respect and love Mercy so much. She is my role model. I never believed she could get so angry and do such a terrible thing to me. Now I have lost my blackberry phone; I am so sad.”



The big, bold and beautiful actress is set to launch - ‘Adaora’, a plus size clothing line aimed at celebrating the true curves of the African Woman.
