Skin and Hair Care Guide for the SummersWritten by Alicia Caldelas
SKIN: Looking after your skin in summer right way is very important. So, make it a point to use a face wash. If you are on run, never forget to carry face wipes. They help to cleanse, tone and moisturize skin. They even take grime off face. In summer, try to opt for oil-free moisturizers with SPF 30, which also double as sunscreens. Avoid soap. Instead use a cleansing milk. A lip balm is a must for all age groups. Since summer is all about gime and sweat, avoid oily astringents and use rose water instead. Remember to drink lots of water to hydrate skin. To get more information on skin care, refer this http://www.ultimate-cosmetics.com/beauty/skin-care.htm
MAKEUP: Less is more. Get minimum makeup and just a hint of translucent powder. But if you do want to add a dash of glam, try this, if your skin is dry, try creams which give a dewy effect. This hydrates skin and adds a glow. Opt for clear mascara instead of a black one, and use a pale lipstick for your cheeks and lips. Pepermint foot cream also works wonders. And finally a word of caution, "never sleep with makeup on".
Narciso RodriguezWritten by Estate Jewelry International
Narciso Rodriguez was born in New Jersey in 1961 to Cuban parents. He studied at Parsons School of Design in New York, and upon graduation worked for designers such as Anne Klein, TSE, and Calvin Klein. His parents were not overly happy that Narciso choose fashion as his career. They would have much rather seen him in something more serious such as architecture.
Whether on runway or on red carpet, designer Narciso Rodriguez is in demand. He began is designer career in 1985 as a design assistant for fashion legend Anne Klein. Narciso has a gift for fitting a dress so that it is flattering to shape of woman's body. "It's so fantastic," Narciso says, "to create a frame for a woman's personality and her true beauty."
While working at Calvin Klein Narciso and Carolyn Bessette [later to become Carolyn Kennedy] became best friends. It was Carolyn Bessette Kennedyís wedding dress design that brought Narciso front and center stage in design world. Narcisoís wedding dress design for Carolyn was buzz around world. On September 21, 1996, Carolyn Bessette Kennedy stepped out of church on arm of John F. Kennedy Jr. Women went gaga, literally drooling over Carolyn Bessette Kennedyís wedding dress.
Carolynís wedding dress was made from pure white silk. This simple dress was combined dress elegance, classiness, and sexiness into one knockout package. Woman began to realize a wedding dress could in fact look sexy. This was a whole new concept, never heard of before. For years most women had landed up looking like an overstuffed pilsbury dough boy on their wedding day. Narciso had accomplished in Carolynís wedding gown what women thought to be impossible. She had been transformed into this bewitching sexy princess. That look was created by one of her best friends, Narciso Rodriguez. It was Carolynís wedding dress that made Narcisoís a household name.
Once word got out who had designed dress, Narciso was in demand by every major designer in world. A dream came true when Narciso joined house of LMVH. The draw back to this career move was that Narciso spent his life living out of a suitcase with very little time to spend with family and friends which he valued and missed dearly. Narciso pressed on encouraged by idea that he had finally "made it." However, working for a large company can often stifle ones own independent design ideas, and it wasnít long before Narciso discovered he no longer loved his work.
