Allure May 2013

The trend this month to try is “power pastels”

Eyes - Cream shadow and liners deliver the most intense dose of color. Use your finger to smudge a vivid lilac from your lashes to your brow bones. Or draw a thin line of mint green along your lashes.

Nails - A sparkly finish can make these color feel juvenile, so stick to shimmer-free formulas. Avoid streaks, a common problem with pastel polish by painting on two thin layers.

Lips - Sheer pastels tend to disappear into lips, so layer like crazy.

6 Steps to a Better Shave:
“1. Shave after washing - shower or bathing in warm water for at least two or three minutes prior to shaving will prevent dirty and dead skin from jamming up a razor or causing ingrowns.
2. Dry off your razor  - wiping your razor clean and storing it someplace dry can ward off bacteria
3. Use a  fresh, sharp blade
4. Consider every angle
5. Apply lots of shaving cream
6. Watch your footing” -don’t want to end up with nasty nicks and bruises.

Allure did a”nude” issue..perhaps it was about body acceptance...I am not quite sure. Here is some makeup picks -
