“SELF PORTRAIT” Written by Wendye Savage

Figure flattering Well designed, you see; My, how I’ve learned to love These curves given to me. As I look into the mirror Gaze from head to toe; I appreciate the form, work of art Breath taken, don’t you know. Let the truth be told Once upon a time; Based upon thoughts I held The mirror told me lies. Bud did I say figure flattering? Well designed, you see; My , how I’ve learned to love These curves given to me.

Wakeup Makeup Tips For Busy Women On The Go By LaTanya Ward Showers, LWDesires Dionne strongly emphasizes the use of moisturizer. She suggests ALWAYS having moisturizer or foundation with SPF in it, like primer moisturizer also helps makeup last longer. Running like crazy around the clock and rushing in the mornings is NEVER a good excuse for a dirty face. Properly washing and moisturizing your face isa MUST. There are a few facial products every busy woman should have on hand. Dionne suggests the following:

I

Blot powder and Blot pads Adding more and more makeup to an already oily face is not good. Blot powder and pads will help reduce shine.

n today’s world we are busy juggling full time jobs, businesses, late night studying,homework with the kiddos and the list goes on. Ways to streamline and simplifyan everyday routine is definitely a huge help, especially in the morning!Go ahead and hit the snooze button a few times, we have some makeup and facial skincare tips from professional makeup artist Dionne Holley that will have you bright eyed and beautiful without spending too much time on application. Do you suffer from baggy eyes and dark circles? Dionne suggests cucumbers to take care of this problem. Cucumbers have high water content and when stored in the refrigeratorthe cool temperature decreases blood to the space around the eyes. As a result, the hydration and reduced blood flow helps soothe and soften your skin. Ok, so you’ve hit the snooze buttonmaybe too many times and you are now nearly 30 minutes behind schedule. You are left with NO TIME to put on a full face! Dionne suggests concentrating on applying makeup to your eyes to get the most for less effort.Eyes are normally the first thing people will see and concealer under the eye can be applied if needed to give a bright eyed effect.

Tinted lip-gloss A tinted lip gloss that goes with any attire and concealer will always come in handy. Tinted moisturizer Moisturizing your skin and giving your face coverage will give you a beautiful glow. With these great tips you can hit the snooze button and enjoy a less complicated morning beautyroutine. Remember, you can look FABULOUS even on the go!

Dionne also shares that primer is the key to keep it all in place on those busy days when there is no time for constant touch ups. There are different primers for different areas of your face (foundation face primer, eye shadow primer, mascara primer and lip primer).
