How to set your make-up

Tried and true tips from Terri O

I have worked in television for a long time so I have learned a few things along the way about my make-up.  Since I worked in news I had to do my own makeup everyday for TV, and still do. Thru the years there is only one product that has helped me get thru a long day and still have a fresh look at the end of the day and that’s……translucent powder by Coty.

The best part is that you can find it at almost any drug store and it’s CHEAP!. The way I like to do it is to put on my foundation, of course over all of my creams and miracle potions, and then set it with the powder. I take a large puff pad, not a sponge, and press the powder all over my face. I cover my lids, lips and neck.

Then with a big fluffy brush I brush off the powder. What’s left is a smooth finish and my makeup is set for hours. I can even workout and it still looks great. I have oily skin so this works for me. If you are dry then you will most likely want to use less powder or even a mineral based powder. I can’t use a mineral based powder it just makes my skin oily. By using the powder on my lids it even helps my shadow go on smoother and last all day. I hope this helps you like it has me. Super simple right? By the way I found this link to a site that sells the Coty powder on line in case you can’t find it.

How to Look Tall

A few simple tips can add inches to your height.  If you can’t be tall you might as well look it!

Long and Lean

Who doesn’t want to look a little longer and leaner?  Try these tips to add some height and take off a few pounds.

  • Expose your slimmest bits like your wrists, collarbone, or ankles so eyes are drawn to your narrowest body parts.
  • Show a little bit of leg.   This creates visual elongation. The best hemline is at the knee or slightly above the knee.
  • Think column.  Dress in a mono-chromatic color scheme from head to toe. This causes the eye to move vertically versus horizontally.
  • Fall “hem over heels”.  Wear a heel and make sure your hem falls over your shoe without bunching and dragging on the floor.
  • Create visual interest at your tallest point. Add a little volume at your crown or pile your hair on top in a simple up do.
  • Wear a v-neck and long, narrow accessories to reinforce the vertical movement.

Food Storage Tips

Food Storage Tips:
· Don’t rinse and reuse plastic bags for food. They can harbor bacteria.
· Do consider shapes when buying containers. Square containers fit better than round containers.
· Don’t put margarine tubs and takeout containers in the dishwasher. They breakdown and are not safe against the heating element. Always reuse but wash by hand.
· Do use permanent markers to code lids with matching containers.
