Like most women, one of my great joys in life is some luxurious undies. But many of us are plagued by the high prices and limited size selection at the big boys of the lingerie industry. Get a clue: not all of us are sized like or paid like Heidi Klum, people. Continue reading “Lovely Lingerie From Adore Me” »
Have you ever watched the VS fashion show or some similar display of your inadequacy and thought, “How on earth do they get their legs to look THAT good? Can you Photoshop in real-time now?”
There’s no doubt Heidi Klum is sexy by nature – but where her fortuitous gene pool ends, Victoria’s Secret lead makeup artist Linda Hay begins.

Definitive proof that Vicky’s isn’t always overpriced: I got the Beauty Rush lip gloss AND a racerback shirt proclaiming “Delicious” that Britney Spears was once seen wearing as a GWP. (That’s a gift with purchase for those of you who aren’t obsessed with throwing away all of your disposable income.)

By “contour”, I mean to change the visual impression of the shapes of your features. Many of us unwittingly contour every day: wing-tipped eyeliner creates the illusion of more angled, exotic eyes, bronzer suggests higher cheekbones, etc. Contouring is a daunting process that most makeup neophytes will probably shy away from, but it’s one of the most powerful tools available in makeup. Highlighting pairs neatly with contouring by drawing light and attention to more flattering areas. In this How-to, I’ll discuss how to cast the right light and shadow on your face.
I admit: I have a sick obsession with Victoria’s Secret. However, I rarely make it to the beauty side of the store. But when the Very Sexy line debuted, I was intrigued. It seemed more professional and high-end than Vicky’s previous sort of impulse-buy-with-your-panties makeup.
I tried the Very Sexy Face Illuminator in Glow, and I was impressed. It’s a light shimmer creme that’s about the texture of concealer. A perfect highlighter that complements best spread high on the cheekbones, it’s also excellent on the bridge and tip of your nose, apples of your cheeks, or the browbone.
