This is my art, taking a model doing crazy makeup on her and dressing her in outfits out of the norm. I love the Florian Sommet shot these photos, the makeup artist did a great job too.  They took a simple plain white background so the model can completely stand out.

FOUNDATION

 

 

You know how your summer color is a shade or two darker than your winter color?  Then you end up buying another

shade of foundation for the winter. Well you can actually keep the same one.

 

The trick is to mix a little bit of sunscreen into your foundation. You can actually lighten up your foundation color up to 2 shades.

Save yourself a trip to the store and try this out!

mbd102857_0507_avocado_xl

A brief introduction of the benefits of avocado:

1. Avocado has been used traditionally to help people with sexual problems.

2. Great antioxidant and can be used for skin disorders

3. Avocado will aid healing for people suffering from digestive and circulatory problems

4. Another benefit of avocado for the skin where avocado paste can be applied to rashes and rough skin to make it smoother.

5. The brighter the fruit, the more beta-carotene (the substance that helps to prevent cancer) your avocado contains.

The use :

1. The flesh of a ripe avocado soothes sunburnt skin. Just cut the fruit in half and rub it gently over the affected areas.

2. Eat an avocado everyday if you’re recuperating from sickness and are trying to regain your strength.

3. Mash Avocado with 1 tbsp of olive oil and apply to hair as a mask. Leave for about 20 minutes and rinse out thoroughly. Result: shiny hair
