Do you have makeup tips for making the nose look more narrow or smaller? Thank you! -Athena
Making the nose look more narrow or smaller can be challenging at first and it’s very easy to overdo it. I remember back when I first tried to contour a model’s nose on a shoot, the photographer said “What is that muddy stuff on her nose?” LOL…I overdid it!
Here are a couple of tricks/tips I recommend:
Make sure the nose has a base on it and set it with some loose powder. Using a soft bristled brush (eye shadow/blending brush), dip a bit into a matte bronzer or blush that’s a few shades deeper then your skin. Tap off the excess powder and, starting at the inside corner of the brow, softly shade going down along the sides of the nose. Again, it’s very important that you start soft. It should look like a natural shadow and not an eyeshadow. Using a lighter shade either shimmer or matte, apply on the bridge of the nose. Blend with a clean brush if there are any lines.

New Moon star Taylor Lautner is InStyle‘s December Man of Style. When the mag asked how he keeps his hair looking so perfect, Taylor answered KMS Hairplay and Redken Rough Paste. Now what I’d really like to know is what this kid is brushing with. I dare you to find me straighter, whiter chompers in Hollywood…natural, I mean; Hillary Duff’s chicklet teeth don’t count.

Like a moth to a flame, I am inexplicably drawn to anything with an exposed zipper. So when I spotted some teenager holding the floor sample of these Whitney Boots by Dolce Vita in the Nordstrom shoe department yesterday, I was this close to snatching it out of her hand when she wasn’t looking.
After a few minutes of indecision, the girl returned the sample to the display and I pounced on it so fast, I doubt the sole ever touched the table top. The Whitney boots ended up coming home with me, and I can’t wait to wear them for the first time. These definitely are the kind of footwear you build entire ensembles around.
If you choose to follow in my footsteps and buy this particular style, be warned – they run small. I usually wear a size 8 boot – but with these, I needed an 8.5.
The other day on my lunch break, I stopped by my neighborhood Victoria’s Secret store to try on the new Miraculous Push-Up Bra. You know…the one that adds two cup sizes. Yeah, that one. In the dressing room, I put on the bra and it instantly transformed my small B’s into generous D’s…truly miraculous. But the true test was when I slipped my sweater back on, over top of the Miraculous Bra. That’s when my eyes bugged out of my head. The reflection in the full-length mirror was a surprising optical illusion. It was as if I was looking at Jessica Rabbit’s body with my head perched on top. Once you take the bra for a test drive, you’ll understand why the tagline for this bra is “Hello, Bombshell”…it’s cuz it looks like you’re smuggling weapons of mass destruction under your top.
If ever there was a bra that delivered on its promises, it’s this one. But there are some major caveats. Though the Miraculous Push-Up is available in sizes AA through DD, I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone with more than a B cup. While I was blown away by the bra, I would have felt totally inappropriate wearing it anytime other than Friday or Saturday nights; this is definitely not one to don under your work wear, unless you work at Hooters.
I’m small on top with wide hips and a lil junk in the trunk, so I had hoped that the Miraculous Push-Up would help balance me out. What it ended up doing is making me appreciate what God gave me (or rather, didn’t give me). So instead of paying $48-52 for a bra I would only wear on rare occasions, I’ve decided to just shake what Mama Spoiled Pretty gave me.
Update: After telling Mr. Spoiled Pretty about this post and my experience with the Miraculous Push-Up, he suggested I return to the store and buy it.

Congratulations to Bridget Colontonio, winner of the PJ’s For The Cure Giveaway. Bridget has won a set of women’s pajamas (in her choice of print). The pj’s feature cozy, super soft 100% cotton knit; inside pocket suitable for an insulin pump or iPod; ribbon drawstring and piping. These pajamas are great for sleeping and lounging.
This month, Komar, the largest sleepwear and intimate apparel manufacturer in the United States, launched PJs for the Cure to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and kick-off National Diabetes Month. In an effort to effectively support JDRF, Komar has chosen to take an active role and do what they do best — design, produce, and sell women’s and children’s pajamas to raise money to help find a cure for type 1 diabetes. This program is unique in that Komar is donating 100% of every sale to JDRF to fund further research for a cure for this chronic disease that predominately strikes in childhood. The goal is to raise $1 million for JDRF by selling comfy cotton pajamas, available just in time for holiday giving.
So even if you didn’t win, please visit pjsforthecure.org to purchase a gift that keeps on giving. To learn more about diabetes and the JDRF, visit jdrf.org.
