Friday, June 26th, 2009

Tribute from personalities on Michael Jackson’s death.

“I am so very sad and confused with every emotion possible. I am heartbroken
for his children who I know were everything to him and for his family. This
is such a massive loss on so many levels, words fail me.” - Lisa Marie
Presley, former wife of Michael Jackson and daughter of Elvis Presley.

“I must confess I am not surprised by today’s tragic news. Michael has been
on an impossibly difficult and often self-destructive journey for years. His
talent was unquestionable but so too was his discomfort with the norms of
the world. A human simply cannot withstand this level of prolonged stress.”
- Michael Leaven, a publicist who represented Jackson when the singer was
accused of molesting a child in 1993.

“I knew Michael as a child and watched him grow over the years. Of all the
thousands of entertainers I have worked with, Michael was THE most
outstanding. Many have tried and will try to copy him, but his talent will
never be matched.” - Dick Clark, host of the old “American Bandstand.”

“Michael Jackson was my generation’s most iconic cultural hero. Courageous,
unique and incredibly talented. He’ll be missed greatly.” - Russell Simmons,
hip-hop entrepreneur and founder of Def-Jam Records.

“We have lost an icon in our industry and my heartfelt condolences go out to
his family and children in this hour of sorrow that they are now going
through. He will live on in my memory and most definitely through the music
he shared with so many.” - Dionne Warwick, singer and Jackson’s friend.

“Michael was a pop phenomenon who never stopped pushing the envelope of
creativity. Though there were serious questions about his personal life,
Michael was undoubtedly a great entertainer and his popularity spanned
generations and the globe.” - California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

“He was a true musical icon whose identifiable voice, innovative dance
moves, stunning musical versatility, and sheer star power carried him from
childhood to worldwide acclaim. A 13-time Grammy recipient, Michael’s career
transcends musical and cultural genres and his contributions will always
keep him in our hearts and memories.” - Neil Portnow, National Academy of
Recording Arts and Sciences president.

“Michael Jackson was my musical God. He made me believe that all things are
possible, and through real and positive music. He can live forever! I love
Michael Jackson. God Bless him.” - Wyclef Jean, rapper and former member of
the Fugees.

“Michael Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana, and our hearts are heavy, heavy
here. Michael Jackson was the world’s greatest entertainer but more than he
was great humanitarian and a great, humble individual. The people of Gary,
our hearts are full of tears because of the loss of Michael Jackson.” -
Gary, Ind., Mayor Rudy Clay.

Lifestyle tips - choosing lip colors

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

Be careful while choosing the lip color as it contains waxes, oils, pigments and emollients that one must pay attention to for a quality product.
Wax gives shape and ease of application to the lipstick and often natural beeswax, carnauba wax made from the leaves of Brazilian wax palm trees and candelilla wax processed from the plant of the same name found in Mexico is used for the purpose. Castor oil is the most common ingredient as it forms a shiny film after drying that does not smudge easily. Other oils and fats such as cocoa butter, lanolin, mineral oil, olive oil and petrolatum are used in the manufacture of lipsticks.

To keep your lips soft, moist and protected from the weather conditions you should choose one which offers aloe Vera, amino acids, collagen, moisturizers, vitamin E and sunscreen.

A clear lip balm is the best thing for everyday use.
Glitter lipsticks and lip glosses are for special events and funky night parties that highlight your lips immensely.
A very light film of pink or red lipstick gives you the look of that carefree beauty.
Use a blood red lip liner to make precise lip lines and apply two coats of lipstick of same color that will make you look hot and trendy.
Mature women should not use matte lipsticks.
For an instant makeover, try a pink creamy blush to add rosyness to your cheeks and lids and use plump shade on your lips and you are ready to flaunt your beauty.

SHADES WHICH ARE PERFECT FOR YOU

For women with large lips muted colors such as purples, browns and bronzes are the best choices.
Women with thinner lips should use light colors.Wine, berry, cappuccino and mauve colors suit light blondes best.
While coral, apricot and shades of peach are suitable for blondes that have a golden hue.
Redheads may use warm colors such as shades of terracotta, cinnamon and peachy brown.
Warm peach, brown and terracotta shades are for blondes that sport olive skin tones.
While shades such as terracotta, cinnamon and reds with hints of brown are the most suited colors for brunettes.

TIP FOR APPLYING LIPSTICK

Make your lipstick smudge resistant and matte by blotting the excess color on lips using one sheet of two-ply tissue, reapplying the lipstick and blotting it again to absorb the excess oils. This will give you a long lasting effect.
In case, the lip color or brush slips from your hands accidentally and stains your clothes, apply the glycerine on the area and rub it gently, before washing it.
