December 19 - Try Hair Shine Spray!
I just love when people compliment me on my shiny hair – because well, it isn’t! Years ago I discovered...
December 17 - Get a Fabulous Pair of Snow boots!
This recent Nor-easter showed us that nothing is as great as a pair of snow boots when it starts to really come down. We find that often, the last thing people think about when they think about fashion is snow boots – but they should! The first reason is because...
December 15 - Keep That Holiday Manicure Longer!
Years ago a manicurist taught me the best tip ever! After your manicure is done either have your professional or yourself run some clear polish lightly across the top of your nail and underneath your nail! The extra coat under your nail really seems to make them stronger and by sealing the edges in this manner they truly do not chip as quickly!
December 16 - Wear a Holiday Plaid!
This fall and winter we are big on plaids with the color red and you truly are seeing plaids everywhere! Yet, whatever the year, red plaid for the holidays seems to be a perennial favorite!
December 13 - Throw on a Silk Blouse!
They say people these days don’t like dressing up and I’m not so sure it’s true! I think people today simply want non fussy, comfortable clothing. Around the holidays, there are often occasions where you want to be “dressed up” but don’t need - or want - a party outfit. These are some of the occasions that cry out for a silk blouse!
December 11 – Take care of that smile!
One of the most important ways to sparkle for the holidays is to take care of that smile! There is no doubt that the most important beauty feature is your smile and it starts out by taking care of those pearly whites!
December 10 - Make Your Eyes Pop!
A simple beauty tip to make your eyes pop is simply to have some eye drops in your beauty bag and use it to make your whites whiter! Irritants abound and even something like a lack of sleep can make the whites of your eyes not look as bright, making your eyes not as vibrant!
December 9 - If You See a Great Evening Bag, Buy it!
We call them evening bags, but what we are talking about here are purses to wear with dressy clothing – day or night. So that is Rule # 1: If you are dressed up, do not wear your everyday purse or tote! While it may be more convenient, nothing looks...
December 8 - Get That Holiday Glow!
Skin gets very dull in the winter and few people think to use sunless tanner once beach season is over. Yet that one light coat, worn for a couple days, even under makeup, just gives vibrancy to your skin! It really makes a difference!
December 7 - Wear a Beautiful Coat!
A lot of people focus on their clothing, matching everything up, carefully looking at every detail, but then simply throw on any old coat! For years, I was even this way! I would reason “It is just a coat, who cares!” Yet live in a region that has actual winters, you are basically being seen in your coat as much, if not more, than your clothing!
December 5 - Take Weekends Off!
Things are always busier during the holidays with less time for yourself than usual, but our Covid times make things even worse! With a lot of people working from home they are finding work extends into the evening, late night e-mails and sometimes taking up entire weekends! So Todays beauty tip is to take a weekend off!
December 6 - Get Yourself a Pair of Fur (Faux) Gloves!
Get yourself a pair of fur (faux) gloves! Nothing dresses up any old coat better than a pair of gloves with fur cuffs, they just so festive! Take a red coat with a nice creamy white pair and it instantly screams holidays! Take a plain black coat, with some black fur cuffs and you are immediately elegant!
December 4 - Try Purple Eyeshadow!
Why purple? Purple eyeshadow is actually quite neutral and will coordinate with whatever you are wearing, yet that spark of color will add some sparkle to your look! Purple will also brighten your own eye color – seriously! The green in hazel eyes pops out, making them look greener, blue eyes look deeper and brown eyes get more dimension!
December 3 - Wear Pearls!
Nothing dresses up any outfit better than pearls! Big ones, small ones, triple chain, choker, freshwater or even good fakes – pearls are a definite go-to for dressing up an outfit in minutes!
December 2 - Wear a Familial Conversation Piece!
So many people wear the same old basics or store bought clothing that what you wear rarely sparks a conversation. Yet put on something unusual and it’s bound to get noticed. The family stories will come out, which is just so special this time of year when family is so important.
December 1st - Wear Red Lipstick!!
Wear Red lipstick! Nothing looks more festive than red lipstick, but so many women say they can’t wear red! This is so untrue –you just have to wear the right shade of red for YOU!
