This week the host of Fashion Flash is Catherine of Obsessed with Shoes. After six months of winter surgically attached to my boots, I am so ready for sandels– and this site has all the latest. This week she asks ” Do you like designer shoes, but not their price? — and offers amazing budget friendly look alikes.
And after you have all the great Fashion Flash posts, check out the new book” Makeup for Ageless Beauty” by Linda Mason. This celebrity stylist has worked on some very famous, very beautiful faces including Brooke Shields and Kim Alexis, but in this book Mason offers makeup advice for real women. I especially liked her makeup options for women with grey hair. Most of the models in the book are 40 plus, making the advice relevant and useful to me. I have a drawerful of lipsticks, eyeshadows, and blushers that seemed like a good idea at the store– but never seemed to work at home. Reading Make-Up for Ageless Beauty, I saw that my color choices were good, but I was not using them properly. Mason’s makeup “maps” showed me much better ways to use what I already owned.
