Bridal Beauty Tips

Every bride deserves to be the very special lady of the day and look her best. The hairdo, the makeup, the bridal trousseau and how the bride conducts herself is the focus of everybody's attention on this day and you will certainly feel much more comfortable, if you have already done the dress rehearsal first.

Here are some useful tips for the bride:

.To cover the reddish skin, use sheer color corrector and apply tinted moisturizer of yellowish green or olive green shade to neutralize it.
.Pink color blush is not for the wedding day, generally speaking. Try bronzer under cheekbones instead.
.Bright lip colors may be warm such as orange-red, orange-gold, copper and warm beiges, creams and caramels or cool such as fuchsia, magenta, blue-reds, shades of lilac and pink and make lips look plusher and fuller.
.Deep warm lip colors such as yellowish and orangish browns; mahogany, deep warm reds and chocolate and deep cool shades such as cool brown, taupe, deep purple, plum and blue-toned burgundy underplay too much thickness of lips.
.The subtle look can be achieved by using the air-brush a lot and sticking to light shades such as cream, gold, lime green and brown for warm skin undertones and lilac, plums and soft pink for cool skin undertones.
.Neutrals are the safest choice to make you seem a bride endowed with natural beauty.
.Be sure to coordinate you overall look: all the colors should have either warm or cool tone while your hair, make-up, jewelry and gown should correspond to the carefully chosen theme.
.Hairstyle is usually chosen, after completing the makeup to suit the looks of the bride.
.If you are not used to wearing heavy makeup, keep your hands away from blue and green eye shadows.
.For olive and dusky skinned ladies, maroons and brown lip colors are the safest bet as well as the golden tones.
.Hairstyles are often adorned with pearls, rhinestones, flower buds, golden lace, satin ribbons, jeweled hair bands and tiaras among other hair ornaments and may range from the simplest French braid or bud to complex and elaborate hairdos.
.Bridal makeup includes all the attention to the minutest of details. Don't overlook them for the finished look.
.A timeless makeup look will keep your wedding snaps fresher forever, so try not to give in to the fads of the day.
.Cream foundation with a high pigment level is recommended.
.Don't forget to cover your neck, chest, area behind your ears with foundation and makeup too.
.Morning weddings need natural look makeup while evening weddings need more formally adorned brides with darker makeup shades.
.Lighting also determines your makeup. A well-lit area uses lighter colors while deeper tones are good for darker areas. Fluorescent lighting will add a greenish tinge to everything so avoid green shades.
.Try not to be too dramatic but there is a secret seldom revealed: red lipstick makes teeth appear whiter!

Wedding Makeup Dos and Don'ts.

Want an elegant and timeless look on your wedding day, you don't want to spoil it with the wrong makeup choices.
Naomi Martinez, owner of Naomi’s Studio and Salon in West Hartford has the inside scoop on the dos and don’ts for makeup on your special day.

DON’T- Go Blue. “Something blue” may bring good luck – but not so much around your eyes. Martinez says she talks brides out of wearing the color all of the time. “You don’t want eye shadow that is brighter than the eye color,” Martinez said. She recommends a color that contrasts the eyes so that they can pop on the big day. “When you walk into the room, you want the features to stand out – not the makeup.” 

DON’T – Cake it.  There are no promises about not getting cake in the face on the big day, but caking should be avoided when it comes to foundation. “Many brides want their skin to look flawless and go heavy with foundation,” Martinez said. She suggests a skincare regiment before the big day to improve skin “95 percent of clients can avoid this heavy makeup look. And a skincare regiment will work,” she said. A natural look always looks better in pictures and in person, according to Martinez.

DON’T – Do Raccoon Eyes. “Many of our clients misunderstand the term 'raccoon eyes,'" said Martinez. "What it actually refers to is the light rings around the eyes from going crazy with concealer.” She suggests using different colors to avoid the circles. “A light salmon or a peach will look much better under the eyes."

DON’T – Do Glitter. “Many times, our clients will come to get their makeup done after getting their hair done and they’ll be covered in glitter," Martinez said. "But what some hair stylists don’t consider is the flash of the cameras." She suggests staying away from using glitter in the hair and on the face to avoid reflections from the flash. “Something not as frosty, like a shimmer will work much better,” Martinez suggested.

There are several things you can do to make your look just right on your wedding day.

DO – Match your Tone. “You don’t want a foundation that is darker than your skin tone.” Martinez suggests that difference in tone will stand out more, especially if you are wearing a white dress. Matching skin tone will give a more natural, even look in pictures and in person.

DO - Go Classic. “You don’t want your pictures to look dated 40 or 50 years from now.” Choosing hair and makeup that isn’t necessarily trendy, but is simple and timeless is the best way to go, according to Martinez.  “Big hair and blue eye shadow was big in the 80s, and if you were to see it in pictures now, you could tell it was from the 80s," Martinez said. "We try to avoid making our clients get this dated look.” 

DO – Go Neutral. Red lipstick is a great accent, but Naomi suggests that this type of look isn’t always the best choice for the big day. “Typically, wedding pictures are in color and in black in white. Red lipstick will look black in black and white photos,” said Martinez.. To avoid this look, she suggests not going too deep or too light with lip color. “Choose a nice medium tone. It will look better in the photographs.”

Waterproof It

Choose a mascara that's waterproof; it lasts longer and withstands tears. If you really don't like the look or feel, use one coat of regular mascara, then follow up with a light coat of waterproof mascara.

Bonus Tip: If your veil needs to be removed after the ceremony, make sure your hairdresser shows your mom or maid of honor how to do it without mussing your 'do.
On the Line

Charcoal, navy, or mahogany are your best options for eyeliner. Black or brown may look too severe, especially if your wedding will be held during the daytime and/or outdoors.

Lighten Up

Use a white shadow as a highlighter on your brow bone if you have light skin; a warmer light peach or vanilla shade will suit deeper complexions.

Give Them Shape

Do contour your eyes, but avoid using color that's too dense (it can detract from your eyes themselves).

Shade Your Brows

Define your brows with a pencil or shadow that matches your hair color.

Get the Red Out

Pop an eye drop if your eyes look red or tired, but stick with a brand you've used before to avoid unwelcome surprises (irritation or worse!).

Sweet Cheeks

Don't forget your blush! A pop of color on your cheeks is like an instant facelift. For fairer skin, a pink tone will work; those with deeper skin tones can choose a rosier hue.

Zap a Zit

If you have a blemish or breakout just before your wedding day, keep your hands away from your face -- the spot will heal more neatly if you leave it alone. In the case of a sudden monstrous pimple, see your dermatologist and ask for an cortisone injection that will shrink it instantly.

Blend, Blend, Blend

Blend well all over, especially at the corners of your eyes, since cameras pick up visible makeup lines.

Get a Good View

For your makeup application, natural light is best. If possible, set up an application table near a window. If there's no natural light available, use a superbright lamp -- halogens work best.

Sit Up

If you're getting ready at a hotel, ask for a high bar stool so you can be at eye level with your makeup artist. If you can't get a stool, simply prop yourself up on pillows.

Even It Out

Use bronzing powder on your chest and neck if you need to even out your skin tone -- it will make your skin more luminous and ensure that your face doesn't look too different from your body.

Watch That Gown

Don't, however, use foundation on your decolletage -- it can stain your dress.

Carry Protection

Use a moisturizer that includes SPF 30 or higher, especially if you are getting married outdoors! You may be getting more sun than you think you are, and you will definitely look pinker in pictures.

Brighten Up

Choose a lip color that's a bit bright. Pale nude or brown lip hues can make you appear washed out in photos, particularly since you'll be wearing white. If you normally wear a neutral hue, wear it as your base with a pink or rose color on top. If you normally wear dark lipstick, use that as your base and apply a lighter sheer pink on top to give you a lift.

Keep It With You

Even if you mix various lip colors when applying your makeup, be sure to have one great lipstick to carry with you for touchups.

Greet 'Em With a Grin

You can have the softest lips and the perfect lipstick, but if your teeth are yellow, you won't want to flash a smile. There are lots of safe, reliable over-the-counter teeth-whitening systems, which all whiten teeth by a few shades.

Prepare the Area

When you're getting your hair styled, a low counter with a mirror -- like a vanity table -- will work best. Check to see that your chair has a low back, so your wedding hair stylist will have easy access to your head. And make sure there are electrical outlets nearby for appliances such as hair dryers, curling irons, and electric rollers. For extra insurance, bring a few extension cords.

Turn On the Heat
If your wedding is early, or if time is of the essence, plug in your rollers, curling iron, or straightening iron before your stylist arrives to save time.

Refresh Your Tresses
Head to a local spa and have a professional scalp massage (which not only feels good, but stimulates the hair follicles and adds body) and deep conditioning treatment the week before your wedding.

How to Lose Belly Fat Effectively

How to Lose Belly Fat Effectively

Now, more and more people are overweight these days, because of our unhealthy diets and lack of exercise. and most of them tend to gain weight in their belly region due to poor food choices. I'm one of them, however, I asked for advice from one of my friends, who is a fitness coach, she made a set of fitness plan for me. I have done the exercise for one month, it's very effective,now I decide to share my experience with you.

Eating Snacks

Eat More Nuts. 
Eat a hand full of nuts each day for more belly fat loss. High in protein and healthy fats, you can't go wrong with nuts. Nuts can be added to stir fry dishes too, for added flavor and benefits.

Green Tea. 
Known as a weight loss aid, green tea is full of antioxidants. It is also believed to stimulate loss of belly fat. Aim for 3 cups per day.
We've all heard that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but it may also assist in weight loss in the abdominal area. Try to eat an apple every day.

Sit Up
The first thing you MUST understand is why you do sit ups. Understand that doing sit ups is not a bad thing to incorporate in your daily life. It's just not necessary for you to do in order to lose body fat. By doing sit ups, you will be building and shaping your stomach muscles. This is a good thing to do if you are looking to get six pack abs. Unfortunately, the only way you will see your results is to lose your belly fat. The only way to lose your belly fat is to diet.

Strength Training Exercises

Strength Training Exercises is a good way to help lose belly fat. The more lean muscles you have the higher your basal metabolic rate (BMR), or the rate at which you burn calories during the day and night. BMR is responsible for 60 to 70% of the total calories you burn. Strength training exercises are those exercises that will challenge your muscles through resistance. You can do weight lifting, resistance band exercises, dumbbell exercises or even bodyweight exercises. You should aim for 2 to 3 times a week for your strength training workout and work all your muscles including your abdominal exercises. After all, you want to show off your flat stomach once you have lost all the belly fat.

10 Minute Workout

First you want to plan a 10 minutes exercise that you can do on a regular basis. Most people do not know that working out even for only 10 minutes can help you to burn aver 150 calories or more. Make the time to improve your body and your health.

One of the most popular ways to get into a cardio workout is to use squat and thrust. This can help you to get your heart rate up and will increase your metabolism so that you burn enough calories around your mid section. You will get to the point where it will come second nature to do a 10 minute workout.




heck out our special program that allows you to model the shapes of your bottom and get rid of fat on the stomach. What will help you in this? The answer is simple: firming lotions, masks and body exercises.

Check out our special program that allows you to model the shapes of your bottom and get rid of fat on the stomach. What will help you in this? The answer is simple: firming lotions, masks and body exercises.

Every day, moisturise and firm the skin

Well-moisturized skin retains more elasticity. Therefore, during our three-week program, do not forget about its moisturizing. In the spring select more greasy lotions than those which you apply generally. This time of year is exceptionally hard for dry skin and in need of more nutrients. Limp skin can be strengthened with active serum.

Apply moisturizer immediately after washing. If you apply the cosmetic up to 5 minutes after shower or bath, then wet and hot skin absorbs it better and restores protective lipid layer of the epidermis. Select a firming lotion or a nourishing one. In addition to moisturizing agents it contains nourishing vitamins A and E, extracts from marine algae, caffeine, oils, eg almond, which act firming and soften the skin.

Also check the body butters. It is used 2 times a day, and during the weekend when you stay at home, you can apply it more often, especially the skin dry. This will help her also rub liquid paraffin (you can buy it at the pharmacy), you can add a little to the bath.

Use serum sculpting shapes. If the skin on the buttocks is little tight, refer to the serum for their slimming. It improves the flexibility of connective tissue fibers, stimulates the production of lipids in fat cells, which become rounded buttocks.

When your trouble is a stretched skin on the abdomen, apply a serum to those parts . It containes the L-carnitine and caffeine that stimulates circulation and the skin becomes more compact. Rub the cosmetic with circular movements (in the buttocks or abdomen) after the evening bath or shower, daily for 3 weeks. If you have a tendency to stretch marks, use cream against stretch marks.

Two times a week do scrub and apply a mask

Nourishing lotion, or firming mask works better if you rub dead skin layer:
this will also smooth the body, and restore pink skin tone. Peeling combined with a compress of black mud is great as a check-cellulite treatment.

Get rid of dead skin cells. In spring it is not enough to use daily, even a mild peeling shower gel. We need a stronger fine abrasive formulation which contains particles of ground shelled seeds, such as apricots, salt crystals, or AHA, supporting cell renewal. Apply the cosmetic to your skin and have a body massage with circular motions during showering or bathing. After treatment, rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. If the body scrub is left on the skin, it can irritate it.

Equally effective is a home peel made of oil (child olive) and coarse sea salt. Use it to the dry body before you shower.

Strengthens the skin with masks. After peeling, dry the body well and distributethe the mask on the buttocks ,thighs and belly. Massage it until completely absorbed. Cosmetics of this type contain phytoestrogens firming body, waxes and oils such as with avocado, which provide long-lasting skin hydration and accelerate its regeneration.

You can apply the mask thickly, then wrapp abdomen, buttocks and thighs with foil, cover with a towel and hold for 2-3 hours or even overnight. Wrapping will soften the skin, thus firming ingredients penetrate more deeply and are intensely active.

Use anti-cellulite treatments. If on the buttocks or thighs appeared inequalities, the so-called orange peel, give the skin detoxification treatment. Pour 200 ml of saline mud bath of warm water at a temperature of 36-38 degrees and immerse yourself in it for 10-20 minutes, thanks to the skin will get rid of toxins.

After leaving the bath and drying of the skin, spread to the buttocks and belly mask with black mud from the Black Sea. Wrap your body with foil and a towel for 1-2 hours. Wash off the mask. The treatment stimulates circulation, and minerals contained in the mud restores skin elasticity, prevent stretch marks too.

Easy Slimming: 5 Great Ways to Lose Weight Without Feeling Hungry...

When dieting, it always happen that one feels hungry soon after having a meal. Are there any ways to drop the pounds without going hungry? Sure! Check out those few tips that will help you to lose weight without starving. Slimming does not have to be hard!

Eat breakfast

Eating breakfast helps to prevent overeating later in the day. According to weight loss experts, those who have meals near the and of the day consume much more callories than people who divide their meals in few small portions eaten during the day. Moreover, having even not a very substantial breakfast, like youghurt, banana or corn flakes, will give you a great portion of energy and vitamins for the rest of the day.

Eat light snacks at work or at school

For example, you may like to prepare fresh carrot sticks that you can crunch always when you feel you wanna eat something. It will diminish the hunger and provide a lot of fresh vitamins and minerals. Carrots are also a great natural cosmetic for your skin. Another healthy and light snacks that will help slimming are: apples, mandarines, green salad with cherry tomatoes and a bit of mozzarella etc.

Consume quality, protein-rich foods

Protein tend to satisfy the appetite more than either carbohydrate or fat. Eating the quality protein is very important also because the body uses dietary protein for many things including growing and maintaining the immune system, skin, eyes and muscles as weel as producing enzymes and maintaining the health of the blood.

Some examples of protein-rich foods that naturally sate the appetite are: 
eggs, fresh dairy products, fish (like grilled, broiled, or baked salmon and tuna), lean meat (skinless chicken on turkey breasts),nuts and seeds. If you try to slim down, avoid heavy fried fish and meat.
Drink plenty of water throughout the day.

Drinking mineral water can be used to cheat your stomach: it helps to stop the feeling of hunger fast and it has zero callories... But even more important issue is that drinking water allows proper hydration of the entire body and it allows it to make the metabolic process more efficient as well as to get rid of waste and speed up the fat loss.
You may like to drink camomilla or green tea instead. Green tea is full of antioxidants and it is believed to stimulate loss of fat. Probably, the best way is to vary your drinks: a bit of water, a bit of tea, a bit of natural juices and so on... just to make sure that you provide a lot of different minerals and substances that your body needs.

Chew Your Food

Some good sources of natural fiber are: brown rice, whole wheat bread, oatmeal, apples and other fruits as well as veggies. Diminish bad carbs (white bread, pasta, ...), bad fats (long-fried dishes, very fat meats, ...) and excessive sugar, that is hidden in cookies, candy and often also in beverages.

2. Don't starve yourself because it makes your metabolism lazy and unwilling to burn calories. 
Always have a breakfast, eat 4-5 well balanced, not to heavy meals and avoid eating within 2 - 3 hours of bedtime. In case you have to munch on something or you feel hungry before going to bed, eat a fruit, small portion of vegetables or a small cup of plain yoghurt. You can try to cheat your stomach with a glass of mineral water as well.

3. Be active to boost your metabolism and burn the body fat faster. There is no need to practice super-complicated sports or to overwhelm yourself with difficult weigh loss exercises in order to improve your metabolism. It will be enough to have a 30 minute walk or jogging every day. You may like to walk instead of taking a bus etc. You can also take Pilates or yoga classes that will improve your flexibility, tone your entire body and help to get slimmer. Another idea is to swim or to take an aqua-aerobic class from time to time. Notice that it is far better to perform even very easy activities every day instead of having a very intensive training only once a week.

4. Train your abs few minutes per day. 
                                                                     If you don't have any preferred abdominal exercise plan, you may like this short, 2 minute abs workout video. It is pretty difficult, so don't worry if you are not trained enough to repeat all the training immediately. Remember that repetitions make a master, so don't give up : ) and simply try to get better every day. You will notice the differences soon.

5. Drink plenty of water. It promotes good digestion, it helps to get rid of toxins and metabolic waste, it fills your stomach in, so you feel less hungry during the day. You shouldn't drink water instead of having a nutrient dinner, but it can be a good trick to cheat your stomach when it wants sweets.

Extra tip 1: do not eat soon before the training. It is much easier and healthier to train with an empty stomach. Maybe it will be good idea to do the abdominal workout before the breakfast or before going to bed? Choose the timing you like most.

Extra tip 2: apply a little bit of slimming body balm to your belly before doing abs exercises. It will help to burn tummy fat faster.

If you are struggling with your weight or health issues, those diet tips can be definitely worth reading and applying to your everyday eating routine.

It's quite the contrary - you actually should consume products that contain a little bit of fat because your organism needs some amount of fat and fatty acids in order to work properly.

It is far better to improve ones eating habits step by step, week after week. You will have much more time to get used to it and to notice what foods are beneficial for your health and which are not. It will be also much easier not to get back to your old bad habits if you are changing them step by step.

5. Try to notice what kind of foods makes you feel bad, sleepy or heavy after you eat them. Try to eliminate them from your diet. Instead of those, include foods and beverages that boost your energy in a natural way, for example freshly squeezed juices are great to stay in a good shape and health. Try different things and find out what is good for you.

6. Drink at least 6-8 glasses of pure water per day. Water increases you body's fat burning capabilities and it is a great weight loss assistant because it helps your body to get rid of toxins and metabolic waste. And it's 0 calories ;)

Why It's Important To Eat Breakfast When You Are On A Diet?

One of the most important secrets to discover when you are trying to lose weight is that you should always have a breakfast. Your breakfast should be healthy and tasty.

.Tasty - otherwise it's not a pleasure to consume it..Healthy and nutrient: make sure it contain a portion of fresh fruit or veggies (it can be a glass of freshly squeezed juice or smoothies instead) that are a great source of natural fiber that promotes good digestion as well as vitamins and minerals that are essentials if you want to stay fit and joyful.

Breakfast should provide you about 20-25% of your daily calories intake.

Ideally, it should be free of fried and saturated fats, but if you are a big fan of eggs and bacon and skipping this makes you sad - don't worry - simply try to combine it with a fresh tomato or a leaf of green salad that will make the dish more healthy. You can also try to modify your diet step by step (for example: Monday - old habits - bacon, Tuesday - new habits - muesli with yoghurt and fruits etc). Try it for a week or two; make observation of your mood and disposition. In this way you should notice if you feel better when changing your diet. Then, choose what suits you most. You may also like to drink a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice before you eat.

In case you feel your stomach is blocked and you are not able to have a breakfast, drink a small cup of smoothie or fresh juice. It will give you healthy benefits of the fresh fruit without the feeling like you are forcing you to eat something.

It is really important to have healthy breakfast every morning because:
.It provides you lots of natural vitamins, minerals and fiber that promotes good digestion and metabolism.It boost you with natural energy that you need to face your everyday routine and helps to concentrate
.It helps you NOT TO grab junk food in the way to work or to school (so it promotes lower fat intake and lower added sugar intake)
.It helps to lose weight without feeling hungry
Having a light and healthy breakfast helps not only to lose weight, but it is also beneficial in order to stay slim and in shape. It prevents obesity too.
.It is a must in case you never have time for a lunch or you eat other meals "when happens", not on a regular basis and in stressful circumstances (in this case it becomes an element of daily routine that brings some kind of stability to your life) .

Here are some ideas for healthy, tasty and quick to prepare breakfast:

.A cup of natural yoghurt mixed with a tablespoon of muesli or cornflakes, a handful of berries and a small glass of water (drink it before you eat)
.A cup of green tea with a teaspoon of honey, piece of bread with cream cheese, slice of ham and tomato (or any other sandwich of your choice, vegetarian or not, according to your preferences)
.Scrambled egg, green salad with cherry tomatoes, half of bagel, small fresh orange, glass of water
.Fruit only. It is great for a hot summer: peach + strawberries + kiwi + any other fruit you like, you may prepare a smoothie on a base of the fruit.

4. Don't skip meals! While eating smaller portions is usually a good idea, it's not a good idea to starve yourself. Hunger slows your metabolism down, so instead of skipping your meals which can be harmful for your body in the long run, it is much better to redesign your eating habits and try to eat in a more healthy way. Ideally, you should eat about 5 times per day and choose light, easy to digest and natural meals. For example, it is better to consume grilled or baked salmon instead of a fried one. Or a fruit instead of potato chips. You may like to have 2 "big" meals combined with 3 light snacks during the day

Importance Of Light Snacks When You Are On A Diet
Examples Of Low-Calorie Snacks

Eating light snacks is crucial when you want to drop some pounds because it can stop your hunger and it provides you lots of vitamins, minerals and natural energy to deal with everyday topics without feeling bad and thinking about eating something all the time. It also prevents you from grabbing junk food. So if you want to get slimmer (you are on a weight loss diet) or you are simply looking for some healthy, low in calories snacks to eat during the day, here are some ideas:

.Baby carrots or carrot sticks (how to prepare the latter: peel off few carrots and cut it into small pieces that are easy to consume or to share with other people as well).

.Fruit salad (in Italy often called macedonia) - this is a very refreshing vitamin bomb. It is simple to prepare: just peel and cut into small pieces fruit of your choice: orange, mandarin, apple, banana, black berries, strawberries, peach, apricot, grapes, melons, kiwi etc. Then mix, add few drops of fresh lemon or lime juice and eat :) Some people like also to add sugar, but I would rather skip it by picking sweet, ripe fruit that do not need any extra sugar added.
Example recipe: small banana, 3 strawberries, kiwi, everything peeled off and chopped. You need to mix prepared ingredients and to add few drops of lemon juice. You can consume it soon after you finish preparing the salad, or you may prefer to leave it in the fridge for 30 minutes to let the tastes blend.

Small sandwich: spread a slice of bread with cream cheese, add green salad, slice of tomato, avocado etc. Anything you like that is fresh and healthy.

A cup of plain yoghurt - choose a natural dairy product produced by bacterial fermentation of milk.
 For instance, natural bacteria cultures that yoghurt may contain are: bifido bacteria or lactobacillus casei that is valuable because of their health promoting properties. Especially, they promote healthy digestive system. Avoid yoghurt that is produced by adding powdered milk only - it does not provide all healthy benefits that natural yoghurt based on bacteria fermentation should provide, for example easily digestible protein and calcium. For a better taste, you can add few berries, strawberries, kiwi and / or half of banana and blend it together to achieve natural and healthy cocktail.

Eat nuts: almonds, hazel-nuts, walnuts, peanuts and other members of the nut family are crunchy and healthy snacks that enrich your diet with monounsaturated fatty acids and magnesium. How much to consume? About 10 pieces per day will be enough.

I hope those tips will help you to lose weight and improve your health constantly.
However, please make sure you always consult your diet with your doctor, especially if you suffer from diabetes or health problems.

to drop some pounds, but also to improve your health in general.
