ALL THAT ZAZZ

"Jeepers Creepers, where'd ya get those peepers?
Jeepers creepers! Where'd you get those eyes?"

óWords by Johnny Mercer; music by Italian-American composer Harry Warren.

Ciao bella,
You razzle-dazzled them through the years and they got you whatever you wanted. At least that's what my eyes did for me! Now with Mother Nature always around the corner, knocking on the door we must not hesitate to pay attention to our "peepers." So the eye makeup we used 5 years ago should not be the same as the eye makeup we must apply today. Luckily, eye makeup is practical magic!

As we get older our eyes change. We must also use a skin care regimen for mature skin not the same one you used when you were 20. In fact your skin care regimen should always be updated every 7-10 years.

Always use a "gentle" eye makeup remover. No stretching!

For fine lines: Never apply concealer on top of your wrinkles it just makes them more noticeable. Concealer is a highlighter and is used for those nasty dark circles. High lighter pens are also popular to brighten up those shadowy areas. Apply a flesh- tone pencil along the bottom inner rim.

For sparse brows: Give your brows a break and let them grow in for 3-4 weeks. Use a powder or feather pencil to fill in. A taupe or blonde shade looks best on just about everyone. Thin brows are not as attractive as full-arched brows.

For lashes: Apply a felt- tip liner to the roots of your lashes to make them look thicker and denser. Then line the upper, inner lid by holding lid taut. Finish with a volumizing mascara.

Follow these easy tips and SEE where they'll get ya!

Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
