I overheard a woman on TV the other day explaining that you must buy silk pillows because cotton pillows will leave creases on your face that will turn into wrinkles. A makeup saleswoman told me once that I need to apply makeup with my ring finger because it's the weakest. Using a stronger finger may cause wrinkles.
Wrinkles are going to happen, ladies. Let's not get crazy and micromanage our skin. Skincare doesn't need to be complex.
Wash off your makeup.
If you're not doing those things, no pillowcase will help. In spite of all your efforts, you're still going to wrinkle because that means you've lived in your face. Living is not a failure. It is not something to hide. The best you can do is live well and aim for laugh lines.
October is the perfect month for anyone who loves a dramatic look. Because of Halloween, you can get away with more in the makeup department than you can the rest of the year. You want to try false eyelashes? Go for it. You want to color your eyebrows? Do it. Color outside the lines with eyeshadow? Why not? Live it up so much in October that people will think black lipstick in November is practically normal.
I love Miu Miu's harlequin themed show from Spring Summer 2008, especially this sweetly sexy striped mini dress. Kensie created a cute green version that's more wearable for everyday life. It's $118 at Macy's and perfect for spring. Now if I could find an inexpensive version of that show's teacup heels... Runway image: style.com .
Jean Paul Gaultier's runway promoted one of my favorite fashion looks: pinstripes with a delicate, feminine print. He had high-waisted pants, suspenders, lingerie elements, lace, sheer fabrics, softly geometric designs, and monochrome dominated, much to my glee. His menswear-inspired looks are a testament to how graceful the style can be. Christian Lacroix also paid homage to menswear with pieces inspired by matadors and soldiers. The complete collection wasn't cohesive, but even the breaks from theme were lovely. It's hard to argue with so many colors, ruffles and embroidery. Plus, I want that polka dot coat!
