A Ponytail for Summertime Fun


beautiful brunette from 60sThe ponytail from the 60s is now the hottest hairstyle for an August day-to-night look. It can go from serious in the boardroom to a fun and flirty look for a night out on the town. They’ve been seen on stars from Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie to Salma Hayek and Tyra Banks.

Wear it low it at the nape of your neck while at work and then show off your mane by wearing it to the side look or wear it higher up and let your hair flow. Not only will you feel younger, heads may turn from those men wondering, Who’s that girl?

Plum Eyeliner – The Secret Agent in Your Makeup Bag


The 007 of beauty, plum eyeliner, is close enough to dark brown to seem innocuous on, but definitely different enough for people to notice your eyes look even hotter than usual.

Eyes of any color are instantly flattered when framed by purple. Remember finger painting back in kindergarten? The blend of red and blue makes for a winning combination. The red in purple makes the green and gold hues in your eyes pop (not to mention makes those baby blues stand out), while the blue brightens the whites of your eyes. Urban Decay?s 24/7 eyeliner in 1999 ($16), is blendable and waterproof.

Also check out Smashbox Cosmetics?where you will receive?Free Shipping and Free Samples with every order.

Their JET SET waterproof eyeliner is an innovative gel-based waterproof liner which stays blendable for 60 seconds and then dries to a smudge-proof, budge-proof finish that lasts all day. JET SET is perfect for lining the inner rim of the eye or as a stay-put traditional liner. Glides on effortlessly with ARCED LINER BRUSH #21. Both of these eyeliners are guaranteed not to run down the side of your face by the end of your cyber-date.
