Where to Wear Your Accessories

Hello all you fashion hungry girls! Welcome to my column -- Accessories to the Rescue. In this section you'll learn what and where each accessory belongs. I would also like all you "fashion divas" to write to me and tell me what you would like to see in this column.

Today we talk about the ultimate accessory -- make-up. There's a few basic rules to make-up. Most of them are very simple, and here they are:

1)Don't over-do too many features.
--The idea is to play up one prominent feature on your face (like your eyes, cheeks, or lips) then to downplay the rest.

2)Go for Matte lips in the Fall.
--Matte lips look too muddy for the hot summer months, but they look superb in the Fall.

3)Go for pale colors on the eyes now.
--This is definitely the hot look! Apply the cream or shadow close to the eyelids and smudge up to the crease of your eyes.

4)Go for rosy, dewy looking blush.
--Creams work much better for these types of colors, just be sure to buy a long lasting formula.

5)For oily or normal skin, you may chose to skip the foundation.
--Because sometimes it can feel heavy or look pasty once the sweat starts a pourin'! For dry skin, apply a tinted moisturizers to hide slight imperfections and give a skin-kissed glow.

6)Keep the make-up natural looking.
--A little is a lot in the summer!

7)After all make-up is applied, apply loose powder.
-- to cool the face and set the make-up.

With practice, make-up can become one of the most fun and versatile accessories. Use it wisely! Hope you have fun trying out all the fun make-up ideas. Be daring! Be dashing! Be a make-up diva!
