Wich ones are the best Brushes for you? you apply your own make-up, if you like to focus more on your eyes then the eye make-up brushes are essentials. If you hardly use any make-up and only apply a light base of blush, then this type of brush is the most important to you. By Maria Laura Carrizo WEB PAGE : WWW.MLAURA.COM

There are a vast variety of brushes to be used for make-up. Each one of them has a very specific function. All brushes have diverse forms, each one of them is capable of distribute the make-up on the skin and create special effects. The quality of these brushes are also very important, the best one as usually the ones with naturals bristles, which are better for applying powder make-up, while the brushes made of synthetic bristles are better for applying oily make-up. In general, it is better to have quality instead of quantity. It also depends on how

the bush to apply blush on the cheeks is the most used. There are specific brushes for this application. The most commonly used is the medium size one. There are the ones that are almost round with the ends rounded and the very flat ones with rounded ends.

the brush to apply powder on your face is big, rounded and soft. It is used in the entire face to distribute the powder uniformly (creating a fine cape). There are also the giant brushes, but remember, if it is too big it will be difficult to apply the powder in the entire face.

this brush is not commonly used in the daily make-up routine. It is used to apply color in the contour of the face and in the tip of the nose creating the same effect the sun would produce. It is a soft medium to small sixe brush. This brush has to be the right size. Normally use to delineate the factions of the face.


in this case, it has to be a small, very soft brush, rounded so it is better for applying the light shadow on the eye (not underneath the eye). This is the first step to apply make-up on your eyes.

this is an angular brush, small, very soft to apply the shadows on the eyelid and on the line between the eyelid and the eyebrow. It helps to create effect in the eye.

this brush is necessary when liquid eyeliner is used. It is very small. For a very defined line it is better to use the thin brush, and for a thicker line it is better to apply the liquid with more pressure.

• Use the brushes, they are easy and create a more professional looking make-up. Buy the good quality brushes that will last you a very long time. It is very important to maintain them clean, and bacteria free. Normally, they could be washed with water to eliminate waste. If they need soap try to use shampoo. When you wash them, try to put them under the water flow for the pressure to wash them better. Let them dry in the air. • The use of brushes is fun; once you get use to them you will be able to experiments and create fabulous make-up.

to separate the eyelashes. Normally is a synthetic comb.

it is a small brush, normally synthetic to get the hairs of the eyebrows to go into the same direction. It is mostly we all know this kind of brush. It is, in reality, a very small comb

used to apply color to the eyebrows. it is a plain brush with straight tips. It is used to apply lip color into a more specific form. iN

very city has its own attraction. Ours have many. For the visitors arriving via air or sea, the profile of the city alongside Biscayne Bay is marvelous and invites to rest and enjoy the beauties of this tropical city. The Brickell area is, indeed, an important component of the city profile. Brickell is an interesting combination of monumental buildings of condominiums and the largest concentration of international banks of the whole U.S. lts residents also show a harmonic mixture of middle age people, retired after a successful professional or entrepreneurial life, and young people that just begin their careers on those major fields.

The recovery of Brickell, after the collapse of the real estate industry at the end of 2007, is evident. Over 90% of the A buildings are sold out and the demand for rental apartments is larger than the available supply. Every unit offered for rental is immediately snatched out. Another good sign of the rebirth of Brickell is how busy restaurants and I entertainment places are around Mary Brickell Plaza. l welcome this success that, on our side, we have stimulated by keeping property taxes in the city low. As Mayor, I am extremely proud of the Brickell area. I also want to share my concern that so many buildings together and the increasing demand for more space to build, get away with the green areas of Brickell. Green areas are the lungs of

I also want to share my concern that so many buildings together and the increasing demand for more space to build, get away with the green areas of Brickell. Green areas are the lungs of the cities. Because of this concern, I have joined Commissioner Marc Sarnoff in the effort to create and maintain more parks with green areas in Brickell. Another of my priorities in the protection of the environment is recycling. On October 1st, we begin the "Fully Automated Recycling Collection Program" that will save energy, mitigate global warming, reduce pollution, litter illegal dumping and reduce waste products in our landfills. Fully automated recycling collection is a technologically advanced system of collection and disposal that is more costefficient and reduces job related injuries while enhancing the quality of services for our residents. Recycle cars are provided at no cost for our residents. We are also working to reduce speed limits on Brickell Avenue to protect the lives and safety in the neighborhood. Last March, we implemented a trolley bus service as an effort to improve access to and from the hospital section around Jackson Memorial Hospital and the new Marlins Stadium. Next year, we hope to open a new line alongside Brickell Avenue and Biscayne Boulevard that will substantially improve transportation capabilities for the residents of the area. lt will also reduce vehicular traffic on those usually congested avenues. The trolley bus service is free of charge and does not cost a penny to taxpayers. it

is paid by the half cent increase to sell tax approved by county residents some years ago A and by funds from the federal government and the Florida Department of Transportation. And last, but not least, we have attained contract agreements with the workers unions of the city to balance the budget for the fiscal year 2012-2013. Under the premise of not raising property taxes to the residents, negotiations were difficult, but handled under a spirit of understanding and search of solutions to the difficult economic times we are living. Once more, Miami has been able to move ahead amid the economic crisis without firing employees or reducing services to the community. I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Brickell Magazine for this window to communicate with Brickell residents, and reassure them that next year 2013 is going to be a better year for all of us. iN

Lima, Peru

a vibrant South American City!!!

W

hen I first visited Lima, it was my first encounter with a true metropolis—an energetic cityscape whose rich history could be felt on almost every corner. I am a city person, but every time I make the 5 hour flight back to this country each time I return, I am surprised by how this urban landscape continues to change, while at the same time remaining committed to its past. There are classic centuries-old hotels still standing and new ones sprouting up in stately buildings, innovative restaurants with cutting edge chefs, and jewelry and clo-

thing boutiques merging traditional materials with modern techniques. I keep a list of my favorite spots in the city, which you’ll find in the following  article, they’ll lead you from the posh San Isidro neighborhood to bohemian Barranco. The 1927 Country Club, where France’s former president Charles de Gaulle once spent the night. The colonial-style building has been converted into the 83-room Country Club Lima Hotel, filled with Peruvian art from Lima’s Museo Pedro de Osma, brocade-covered chairs, gilt mirrors, and mahogany armoires. Along the nearby malecón (boardwalk), the Oceanside Miraflores Park Hotel  has one of the city’s best


Over the years I have had my most memorable meals at the intimate, 15-table Rafael Restaurant, housed in a 1940’s mansion. Do not let the traditional atmosphere here fool you: The Asian- and Mediterranean-inflected Peruvian dishes, such as lomo salteado made with rice vinegar and pisco, are exquisitely prepared by the chef-owner Rafael Osterling Letts.When I want to taste Lima’s most daring culinary offerings, I head to Astrid y Gastón, in a rambling villa in Miraflores. Lima-born chef Gastón Acurio’s menu is full of surprises: a “shot” of sea urchin emulsion mixed with cappuccino; spicy rabbit spring rolls. Plus, it has the city’s best selection of Latin American wines (try the Uruguayan Pisano Tannat). You cannot come to Lima without sampling Peru’s most famous dish—ceviche. And La Mar Cebichería is the best place to try it in my opinion. The bamboo-roof restaurant is a hot spot for Lima’s beautiful people and does

not take reservations. But it’s worth the wait for the house specialties, such as tuna, sesame, and tamarind, or sea bass and octopus with chile. When I am in Lima, I always swing by All Alpaca to stock up on colorful and reasonably-priced sweaters, knee-length coats, and scarves, all made from downy-soft Peruvian alpaca wool sourced in the Andes. One of my favorite new jewelry designers is Anna Dannon, who creates the imaginative silver baubles sold at Ara Joyas, on the lively Álvarez Calderón. You’ll find everything from sculptural cube-shaped necklaces to thick, golddipped arm cuffs. Mario Testino’s sister, Giuliana, is one of the most talked-about designers in town. I love her hand-crocheted clothes at Giuliana Testino. If you do not like your dress hems short (and these are short), there are also plenty of delicate cardigans, shawls, and capes. In southern Lima’s up-and-coming Barranco neighborhood, Las Pallas carries traditional Peruvian crafts collected by British-born owner Mari Solari. The intricately designed Ayacucho pottery and Andean retablos are the perfect gifts to bring back. iN RLA Tourism can help you arrange your trip or vacation to Peru.

rooftop infinity pools and panoramic views of the Pacific from the private in-room balconies. The 33-year-old Miraflores Cesar’s Hotel was the place to stay in its heyday, but a muchneeded makeover transformed it into the more modern Casa Andina Private Collection Miraflores . Despite its new look— bold artwork; a palm-fringed indoor pool—the hotel hasn’t completely done away with tradition: Wood-beam ceilings and Peruvian ceramics decorate the rooms, and you can still hear boleros in the lobby lounge.
