Dear Simona, with the arrival of summer I would like some change. I want to do something to my hair, but don’t know what. I have dark eyes, an oval face, 1.60 of height, thin waist and shapely hips and breast. My natural hair is dark brown, long and straight. My problem is that they always that I look much younger than I what really am, what I can do to look more “woman” thanks
Hello Cristina. Honestly, with the curves you have I find it difficult that people think you are a little girl, so do not worry! To add a few more years to your appearance, I suggest you cut your hair up to the level of the chin or to keep them curvy. Your color is perfect. I’m sorry I could not be more precise, but you described very little of your face. I hope these tips will come in handy! a kiss
Hi Simona! Is there a way to make your nose look smaller with make-up?
Yes Jennifer! This is a trick that is often used in the world of make-up, and, if done so as to be imperceptible to the eye, it can give a new look to your face. It all depends on your nose! If the problem is the width, then you have to enhance the profile illuminating it with a vertical line and darken slightly the sides of the nose: use a little darker powder than your complexion starting from the eyebrows and going down to the base of the nose. If your nose has a bump, the darker tone has to be applied to the center. It is important be very light with the make-up. Good luck!
Dear So Vain , I would like an advice. I heard about permanent make up, but I don’t understand what it actually consists in. Furthermore, is it harmful or dangerous to do? Thanks in advance
Valentina, unless you have a particular problems, I would not recommend this practice! The permanent make up consists in small tattoos in an area as sensitive as the face. At the time you should not feel pain, but you find yourself in the following days with little wounds on your face (lips, eyebrows, brows) which could create you some problems in terms of pain, practicality and aesthetics. The pigments used are designed to be reabsorbed by the body, although they sometimes leave some ugly shadows around the area. The make up can withstand 2 to 5 years and I do not really cosider it an advantage, especially for the eyebrows as your hair color will surely be affected by it! If you still want to follow this path, make sure you go to a specialized and professional centre, where the equipment is sterilized and the staff is qualified. In general, the make up is rather light, but this is a choice of the operator and the patient. I suggest you think about it very well, are you sure you want to give up one of the little pleasures of being a woman?
Hello everyone. What make ups should we always carry in our beauty case? Or rather, what would be best to carry with us in case of “emergency”!?
Dear Elena, For an “emergency” make-up you can count on mascara and lipstick as you can apply them quickly and they give character to the look, plus they are light to carry in your purse. If you have created a particular make-up at home and you would like to keep it that way all through the evening, apart from observing a few precautions when you apply it, bring the products that tend to disappear more, that is lipsticks, eye-pencils or other cream products, it can can be useful to bring a powder to reapply when the base begins to crumble. See you soon!
