Health and Beauty Tip -- Get the Most Out of Lipstick

You don't need to buy multiple tubes of lipstick to get different looks! If you want a glossy finish, apply a thin layer of Vaseline to your lips first. Dust your lipstick with some loose powder once it's applied for a matte finish, or pat it on gently for a stain. And for an evening style, mix your lipstick with a bit of dark eyeshadow.

No matter how love-sick a woman is, she shouldn't take the first pill that comes along.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Getting a Perfect Haircut

Make sure your stylist knows exactly what you want, and help her get it just right. Sit up straight in your chair, to make sure your posture (and thus your style) isn't skewed. And instead of just describing what you want, use your hands to indicate length and style wherever you can. This gives the stylist a better idea visually of what you'...Read more

"If any one faculty of our nature may be called more wonderful than the rest, I do think it is memory. There seems something more speakingly incomprehensible in the powers, the failures, the inequalities of memory, than in any other of our intelligences. The memory is sometimes so retentive, so serviceable, so obedient; at others, so bewildered ...Read more

Health and Beauty Tip -- Long-Lasting Eyeshadow

"I don't believe in intuition. When you get sudden flashes of perception, it is just the brain working faster than usual. But you've been getting ready to know it for a long time, and when it comes, you feel you've known it always."

Health and Beauty Tip -- Simple Make-Up Remover

Here's a quick fix for make-up removal -- instead of cold cream or just soap and water, try a cotton pad or ball with baby oil. Swipe it across your face. It works just as well as a commercial make-up remover.

"Let us make one point, that we meet each other with a smile, when it is difficult to smile. Smile at each other, make time for each other in your family."

Health and Beauty Tip -- Add Radiance to Your Face

When you're done applying your makeup, take your brush and apply a very light dusting of baby powder to give your face a radiant glow. Too much will make you look pale, though, so use it sparingly!

"[Long hair] is considered bohemian, which may be why I grew it, but I keep it long because I love the way it feels, part cloak, part fan, part mane, part security blanket."

Health and Beauty Tip -- Eat Your Greens

Studies are showing that green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale and collards are beneficial to your body's ability to keep itself healthy. The high amounts of vitamin E in each help fight chemicals produced by the body that can damage cells. But any kind of vegetable is helpful -- people who eat more than two servings of vegetables per day ...Read more

Some think it's holding on that makes one strong; sometimes it's letting go.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Exfoliate!

Dry, cold weather can cause dead skin cells to build up. Even if you don't usually use an exfoliator, now's a good time to start. You can also use a puff or a loofah. Use moisturizer afterwards to keep your skin soft.

I married the first man I ever kissed. When I tell my children that they just about throw up.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Accessorize for Winter

Choose accessories that complement your winter coat. Heavy down parkas look great with knits, like striped scarves and ski caps. Pea coats are especially flattering with a cream-colored skull cap and mittens, and shaped wool coats go best with "girly" accessories like berets and cashmere scarves in pastels.

"Hollywood is like Picasso's bathroom."

Health and Beauty Tip -- When to Use Facial Treatments

Cream, under-eye treatment, moisturizing lotion, or almost any such product works best at night, so apply it right before going to bed. If you use a lotion or moisturizer on your face, it's a good idea to use it on your neck and arms, too.

"The hatred you're carrying is a live coal in your heart -- far more damaging to yourself than to them."

Health and Beauty Tip -- Nighttime Face Wash

Bedtime is the most important time to wash your face, to get rid of any dirt you've picked up during the day. Use circular motions when you scrub, and wash with cold water. Walnut scrub is great for oily skin, and dry of sensitive skin benefits from baby oil or wet cleansing pads afterwards.
