pumpkin eye mask recipe

Oct 30, 2009

So I was surfing the web and I found something really cool that I had to share with all of you! Around this time of year, everyone’s house somehow is full of pumpkins. You’ve got your jack-o-lanterns for Halloween, and for some reason it’s festive for Thanksgiving to have pumpkins decorating the table and scattered all around the house. But what the heck do you do with all of them when the holiday is over? Well girls, I have discovered a solution!

Since pumpkins are a fruit (because they have seeds), they have awesome ingredients that make them great for your skin including beta-carotene, vitamin c, and antioxidants. L.A. celeb skin expert, Narine Nikogosian has written a new book Return to Beauty: Old-World Recipes for Great Radiant Skin that includes a lot of skin-soothing recipes using pumpkin. Here is one of them:

Pumpkin Eye Mask

Good for: Anyone

Ingredients: 1 pumpkin slice, 1 teaspoon honey

Preparation: Peel and seed a slice of pumpkin. Cook it in 2 cups of water until soft, then mash it and add 1 teaspoon of honey.

Application: Put the mixture inside clean gauze, then place over your eyes and relax for 20 minutes.

Pick the book up a copy of the book to get more great pumpkin-themed recipes, and gives thanks to these big orange fruits for all that they do.

red lips are in! how to find your perfect red

Oct 29, 2009

superstar stila intern lauren schlessinger with a fall trend report:

fall is here and just when you thought it was all about neutral fall colors, classic red lipstick shows up everywhere! it was seen all over the runways of the 2010 spring fashion week in paris, and although they say paris is always ahead of us in trends, it looks like we’re riding right alongside them this time.

it’s all about that ruby red look, and contrary to popular belief, everyone can pull off red lipstick, it just has to have the right undertone for your skin.

how to determine your undertone:

in a natural light, hold a white piece of paper behind your wrist and if your skin looks golden or orange you have a warm undertone. if your skin looks pink or blue then you have a cool undertone.

when looking for a red lipstick, you have to find one with the same undertone as you. test shades on the inside of your wrist and pick the one that looks the nicest. then, voila, you are sporting that classic red lip look!

these stila star products will give you your perfect red:

lip color in dominique ($10 – a $17 value)
SPF 20 shine lip color in pam ($22)
convertible color in poppy ($25)

what do you use to create your perfect red?

pro tips!

Oct 20, 2009

pro tips from NYC stila star dom briguglio...

two multi-taskers - sheer color tinted moisturizer & perfecting concealer - give you a glowing, flawless complexion:

"for the day apply the tinted moisturizer for sheer coverage, spf 15 and moisture then apply the perfecting concealer where needed.

for the night just squeeze a little tinted moisturizer on your hand then squeeze a dab of perfecting concealer into it. mix the two together and you now have a full coverage foundation to give you that polished look for a night out on the town. no need for a second foundation formula."
