The Best and Worst Eye ShadowsThe Best and Worst Eye Shadows

There's more to eye shadow than those puzzling packages sold at local drugstores that promise to "enhance eye color" with strange combinations of multi-tonal hues. When applied correctly, shadow can add depth to eyes, complement eye color and make eyes "pop" (that's she speak for eyes that get noticed).

The distance between eye lashes and brows is twice as large in women as in men, according to Wikipedia, meaning that a pale shadow applied to the upper lid and brow bone may actually make you look - and feel - more like a woman.
And while a great eye shadow can help polish your look, a bad shadow is sure to streak, fade and call attention to fine lines, leaving you looking more like a raccoon than a fox.

Preatty RealPretty Real: Emily Schuman

This week we asked Emily Schuman, the blogger and beauty behind the addictive Cupcakes and Cashmere, to divulge her beauty tips and tricks from her favorite eye cream to the perfect shade of gloss. And while Schuman is best known for knowing fashion -- the blog she started in 2008 recently beat out the Cut, among others, to be named Best Fashion Blogger in the Tenth Annual Weblog Awards -- we found her beauty arsenal to be pretty impressive, too.

We have to add a personal kudos to Schuman, who we believe is recreating what it means to have a career in fashion, by striking out on her own and creating a blog that,  in just a few years, has amassed a substantial following and sponsorships from the likes of Coach. Plus, Schuman does it all with optimism and charm, proving that being a good person is always in style.

MicrodermTreatment FAQs: Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a mini procedure that involves a powerful exfoliation by aluminum oxide crystals, baking soda, salt, sugar or cob granules to remove the top layer of dead skin cells.

This exfoliation technique is coupled with light suction to clean up excess skin congestion leaving polished, clean skin behind. The procedure is virtually painless and offers positive effects for every skin type.
