Health and Beauty Tip -- White Eyeliner

To brighten up your eyes, use a little shimmery eyeliner in white, pink, or silver on the inner corner of each eye, and blend it in. If you're looking for even more effect, highlight the brow line with the same pencil.

The eleventh commandment --- Thou shalt not be found out --- is the only one that is virtually impossible to keep these days.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Exfoliate Before Makeup

Many women skip a very important step in their makeup routing: exfoliate! Use a gentle exfoliant (there are many made just for the face) beforehand, and you'll find that makeup, moisturizer, and concealer go on more easily ... and look better, too!

Everybody wants to do something to help, but nobody wants to be first.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Powder vs. Blotting Sheets

It may be tempting to apply extra powder if you find your skin getting oily throughout the day. But if you do this too much, it just builds up and actually looks worse. Invest in blotting sheets -- they really work! -- and use them when you feel like you need powder.

The way to do research is to attack the facts at the point of greatest astonishment.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Bare Minimum

No matter how flawless your skin is and how you look without makeup, always keep lipstick or gloss with you -- even if you don't wear any foundation or anything else, a little color on your lips can help you look your best. A bit of mascara first thing in the morning is helpful, too, if you feel no reason to spend half an hour in front of the ...Read more

There are days when any electrical appliance in the house, including the vacuum cleaner, offers more entertainment than the TV set.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Quick Dye Job Fix

Didn't choose your color so well? if you've done a home dye job with semipermanent color, use dandruff or clarifying shampoo to strip out the color (the exact reason you're often told not to use it!). Semipermanent color takes about 48 hours to set, so make sure you shampoo in that time. If not, it should fade in 6-8 weeks.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Facial Hair

If you have dark hair on your face, don't shave it! It doesn't grow in thicker, as many think, but it feels like it does as the shaved ends are coarser. In-home waxing can be painful, and salon waxing or hair removal tend to get pricey (especially the latter). Many women are better off simply lightening the hair to make it less visible.

You should always believe what you read in the newspapers, for that makes them more interesting.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Doing Your Part ...

... in your hair, that is. If you have a long or oval face, a side part works best -- line it up with arch in your eybrow. Round or square faces can be made to appear longer with a middle part, and prominent foreheads or chins appear smaller with a part that's just slightly off-center. Make sure to part your hair while it's wet, so it dries ...Read more

Romance is the glamour which turns the dust of everyday life into a golden haze.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Do You Have Bad Breath?

Blowing into your hands to check your breath doesn't really do any good. Try this: lick the back of your hand and let it dry. Provided you haven't used any heavily-scented soap, this will let you know exactly how your breath smells.

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Perfume Samples

Don't throw away the perfume strips from magazines. Find one you think you might like, and put it in your purse. You'll have a chance to find out if you like the perfume, and it's also an easy way to give your purse a nice scent.
