From Platinum to Silver? Kate Moss Goes Gray!!

Well the news it out, gray is here to stay! Indeed, we saw gray streaks all over the runway, and now that Kate Moss has died her blond locks silver, it’s confirmed! But is it appealing? On the runway, exaggerated hair, makeup, clothes—AMAZING and a total necessity. In real life, not so much. My personal thoughts, designers are geniuses who have crystal balls into the fashion future. Sometimes we hate their ideas, but 6 months later we are obsessed! For the gray streaks, I’m not ruling it out. I think it has to be done very carefully. There is a fine line between looking fashionable and looking old.

I thought this quote from New York Magazine was very interesting and although controversial, it has a good point:

“First the industry — Karl Lagerfeld included — embraces plus-size models as high-fashion models, and now gray hair is all the rage. What will be hot next? Wrinkles and saggy cleavage? Cellulite? If so, probably not in the everyday sense. If designers one day decide to make dimpled flesh the next big thing, of course they won’t hire normal women who actually have it to model their clothes. They’ll send models down the runway in panty hose filled with rice or something.”

Bye Bye Wrinkles!

Chances are, if I know you, at some point in our friendship, I have given you a tube of Retin A. Why? I LOVE THIS STUFF!

A few years ago, after leaving sunny Dubai and heading to Boston in the winter, I began feeling a bit pasty. It wasn’t long before me and Hot Bodeez tanning salon became BFFs. As much as this seemed like a fool-proof relationship at the time, I noticed three long wrinkles forming across my forehead.

“Eeeek!” I remember thinking!

The dilemma, I loved my golden-bronzy skin, but these three little piglets, not so much.

An incredibly wise and beautiful woman who was to me, the epitome of a DIVA/mother figure recommended I use Retin A. To my amazement, my wrinkles literally, completely disappeared!

Retin A is used as treatment for acne, but is very effective in its ability to reduce the signs of aging, stretchmarks and even hair loss. If you are interested in using Retin A (also known as Aberela, Vesanoid, Renova, Atralin, Avita, or Stieva-A), contact your dermatologist and make sure to use it sparingly as it can cause too much skin renewal, which can lead to flaking.

I do recommend using a very light dosage. I use .025, which is very light and easy on my skin. Remember, don’t over do it! I tiny dab will go a long way!

PERIOD MAKEUP | 1960
By Huda Heidi Kattan

Of all my favorite periods for makeup, the early 1960’s has always been my favorite.  Strong brows, spikey lashes, heavy use of eyeshadow, with nude lips with a dash of glitter–so sultry.  It’s no wonder why these iconic beauties are some of the most memorable of all time. Simply put, their beauty is timeless. I’m thinking of doing a tutorial on this period makeup, let me know if you guys are interested!
