Breaking: Bauer Media Just Axed 8 Big-Name Magazines Including Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and Instyle

Vera showed off her insane body on Instagram and we’re definitely very VERY jealous.

When someone is 70-year-old, he/she is is considered a senior citizen so the image that usually pops on your head when someone tells you their 70 is that of a man or a woman in a wheelchair or holding a cane for support.

Well, Vera’s toned abs and fabulous look beg to differ. Vera is quite known for being the world’s most famous wedding gown designer. High-profile celebrities such as Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, and Kim Kardashian have all worn her designs when they walked the aisle among others – and by the looks of things, it looks like she’s not stopping anytime soon.

4 Awesome Beauty Hacks That’ll Make You Look Like A Celebrity

We all know that looking and feeling beautiful helps you feel more confident about yourself when you are in a crowd right? Well, if you want to look and feel like a star with rockhard confidence then you need to try the following beauty regimens:

Create your own mode of fashion

Let’s face it; beauty and fashion are inseparable. Therefore, to attain a higher level of beauty, you must also stay in fashion so that you get noticed whenever you are out and about in public. In connection to this, you need to make sure that you look fabulous and organized with your chosen look. A carefully curated look that reflects who you are on the inside, matches your values and aligns with your goals – can speak volumes on your outside appearance. You need to use the power of your personal style to dress for success and boost your confidence. You also need to create your very own signature look because that’s the epitome of personal style. It’s the icing on a classy and sophisticated wardrobe but at the same time the best foundation for any style journey.

Beauty enhancement

Natural beauty is ideally better. But then again if you want to enhance your beauty even further, you need to use innovative products that can enhance your look. With the use of quality cosmetics, you can now have the chance to look like your favourite celebrity.

When you look beautiful you feel great about yourself. You stay poised and confident most of the time. However, you must also give attention to your hands as well as your feet. To completely achieve your beauty goals, you must look good and feel good from head to toe so you probably need to engage in foot scrubs and pedicures to keep your hands and feet looking neat and healthy.

Eyelash extensions are a big deal these days because they enhance what most women consider their best feature – the eyes. Eyelash extensions make your lashes look thicker, fuller, and longer. The curl at the end of the extensions also helps the eye look more open, giving a more dramatic and attention-grabbing look.

Most celebrities do laser treatments because they have long-lasting effects. Lasers can be used to remove hair from almost any part of your body, take away any unwanted wrinkles as well as other discoloration. They are typically used for beauty enhancement because they can help boost your appearance by giving you a much younger look.

Facial creams are a must if you want to enhance your look so you can look like a celebrity. There are dozens of facial creams out there that can smooth wrinkles and make your skin look firmer. These creams use special ingredients that can stimulate your skin which can give your face a healthy glow and a younger look by hiding blemishes and tightening the pores.

Proper hair care

We’ve all heard of the saying “your hair is your crowning glory.” With proper care and maintenance of your shiny, and glowing hair, you can have a look that will surely be the envy of others. To maintain the health of your hair, you must regularly use high-quality shampoo and conditioner. In saying that, don’t wash your hair more than you have to. Whenever you can, try to skip a day here and there – water can make your hair swell from the inside, and because of that, you can get frizz or breakage in your hair. When you use a conditioner, try to leave it on your hair for at least five to ten minutes, and then rinse your hair with cool water so that residual conditioner will be left on your hair leaving it nice and soft. Also, if you want your hair to look shiny, try using dry oils because they can create the most fabulous shine. Dry oils smooth the hair’s cuticle giving your hair that impeccable shine.

Dress sophisticated and classy

It is a highly known fact that clothes make the man (or woman). The mode of your clothing reflects your personality. If you want to add sophistication and class to your everyday outfits then you need to put together essential elements to make sure your style and confidence shines through. Try going for clothing made of materials that will last well into the next century – this is what you should be looking to add to your wardrobe. Something along the lines of cotton, wool, linen, and silk. These four basic fabrics will certainly go the distance if cared for properly. Once cleaned and pressed, outfits made of these fabrics tend to give off a sophisticated vibe. If you’re also going for that sophisticated and classy look, try outfits with neutral colours such as white, black, gray, beige, or cream. Lastly, make sure your outfit isn’t too big or small for you – fit is the perfect style. Skirts should be just above or below the knee and blouses, and sweaters should always follow the curve of your waist.

Establish a regular exercise habit

Your fitness is an essential ingredient when it comes to maintaining your beauty. With this, you must exercise regularly in order to look good and feel good all the time. This can be your best way to attain the perfect body shape that you have been dreaming of. Anyone who makes a habit of going for a jog, playing sports or going to the gym fully well knows that the rewards of exercise extend far beyond just slimming down or adding muscles in your body. When you exercise you feel great and you look great, your skin looks a tad smoother and more radiant, your stress level goes down, your body has better immunity and you feel more confident about yourself.

5 Hacks to Make You Look Chic But Not Vulgar

Dressing chic just comes naturally to some women while others must struggle a little in order to maintain a personal style. We say you ditch the seasonal trend book and device your own fashion rules to always look sassy and chic no matter what’s the occasion. To us, a chic look would have the right amount of glamour mixed with an urban edginess. Here are a few ways to keep up the chic style:

Fashion Hack # 1: Go by the Tri-color Outfit Rule

One of the simplest and basic rules to dress chic is to keep your outfit a little neat and put together; this you can achieve by not mixing more than three colors in your outfit at a time. While a kaleidoscope of tones and shades would appear desirable and artsy to some, pulling it off is not everyone’s cup of tea. So, ensuring that you don’t flaunt more than three colors in the same outfit at a time would make carrying an outfit easy for you.

Just so you know, basics such as a white top or black jeans won’t necessarily count as a ‘color’. Also, busy prints would count as one.

Fashion Hack # 2: Focus on the Basics

We can’t emphasize this point enough! Basics such as a black V-neck figure-hugging t-shirt; a white chiffon top with ruffled sleeves or a white crisp button-up are the key items that would lay the foundation of a solid chic outfit. Use them as a base to build your style. Add on an accent piece and take it up from there.

Fashion Hack # 3: Accessorize

Watches, dainty layered necklaces, trendy scarves, handbags, sunglasses – these minute details really accentuate your outfit. It shows that you pay attention to the details and really ties the entire look together.

Fashion Hack # 4: Rock a Bright Pout

If it’s summer season, go for a vibrant pink; if it’s autumnal bliss, rock a deep plum! A bold pout really makes for a loud and daring fashion statement. When you pair this look with the toned-down outfit it gives off a very cool trendy and uber chic vibe.

Fashion Hack # 5: Invest in a Good Pair of Jeans

Now, this may sound like a no-brainer, but a good pair of jeans can really make or break your entire look. Opt for skinny jeans or slim-fit pairs that create an illusion of elongated legs and narrow waists. Now you can play with textures and colors for your top.

Each bottle of hand sanitizer will also include the message, “Dedicated to first responders working to support our communities.”

Kylie herself has donated $1 million to buy protective gear for first responders. Last month, she even posted an Instagram message to her more than 160 million followers to follow social distancing instructions and just stick to staying home to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Kylie joins the fight against COVID-19 along with a number of big-name brands such as LVMH, Estée Lauder, L’Oreal, who are manufacturing hand sanitizers as well.
