An actor’s “type” is essentially a combination of their personality and external physical appearance. It’s what would be considered their character type or persona based almost entirely on first impressions. People involved with casting are in the business of searching for the right “types” of actors to fill particular roles. An actor that can pinpoint their type and market themselves clearly has got a distinctive advantage over the competition.
Angelina Jolie’s minimalist fashion look is by far our favorite look! Her everyday look of slim fitting black slacks, black ballet flats, neutral tees and black sweater is elegant, classy and effortless. Angelina is a true example of ‘less is more’!
The easiest way to define a waistline without a belt is knotting your shirt right at the middle. It lends a more creative finish than just tucking in your shirt and adds a playful touch.
ESSIE nail care had done it again! They are launching a new product in May that will give your manicure a gel-like look without having to “cure” it under a LED/UV light lamp.

Our fast paced world has impacted our social graces (not in a good way) and we live in a world of consumerism so we take a lot for granted! We should always say thank you when someone does something for us (big or small). It we start forgetting common courtesy, life becomes unpleasant for us. A simple verbal thank you is often enough but sometimes a different thank you is more appropriate. Send a written note, flowers, phone call, simple gift or a gift of time. The people in your life will be acknowledged and feel they are important to you!
We were hoping to avoid venting about our beauty pet peeves but alas we feel obligated to write about what drives us crazy!
- FOUNDATION THAT DOESN’T MATCH! It is suppose to match your neck and not look like a mask on your face.
- UNBLENDED anything! Please, blend, blend and blend!
- LIP LINER THAT IS THREE SHADES DARKER THEN YOUR LIPSTICK! Line your lips in a color that either matches your lipstick shade or is darn close to it. Be sure to clean up the outside of your lips with concealer.
- EYEBROWS THAT LOOK LIKE A STENCIL – Your eyebrows should look natural and not like they were stenciled on with a Sharpie!
This season’s lit-from-within makeup totally channels Hollywood’s Golden Age.
Models strutted down the spring 2015 runways of Opening Ceremony and Rag & Bone wearing healthy, luminous skin.

It’s time to start thinking about warmer weather and what that means with our appearance. Typically, winter reflects heavier makeup and darker nail colors. In the summer, you want to appear fresh and unencumbered – meaning keep your makeup application simple and fresh looking, wear pastel colors on your nails and toes (no chipped polish please), and enjoy wearing a ponytail or braids with all the fun hair accessories. Remember; please don’t tan unless you use a self-tanner!
