From dewy skin to bold brows, see the tips you need to nail these looks now.

Fuzz free with Skintimate lotionized shave creme and Schick Quattro for women

Replace your diet coke with one of these eight drinks. They'll not only help trim your waistline, but they're also packed with good-for-you ingredients

8 Diet Drinks That Are Actually Good for You
This is a TotalBeauty.com weight loss diets article
Despite what the name suggests, "diet drinks" may be low-cal -- but they're often not so hot for your diet. But since no one gets excited about drinking a tall glass of water, we turned to nutritionists and healthy-eating experts to get the skinny on the best actual diet drinks out there. Here are the experts' picks for the diet-friendly, nutrient-packed drinks that won't sabotage your healthy-eating ways.





 Hello Gorgeous!
I have been playing with my sample of Skintimate lotionized shave creme in extra gentle. It has a non foaming formula and I wasn't sure at first that I was going to like not having a big thick layer of sudsy foam to pull the razor through.

Actually I am surprised and how rich the lotion texture of the Skintimate lotionized shave creme is! I tested along with it a Schick Quattro for women 4 blade shaver with acai complex and jojoba.

I really liked the lotion shave creme because it rinsed clean and I think it did help the blade slide smoother over the skin with out any tugging that could possibly  result in a cut. Once you have never cut your shin to the bone while shaving you will have a nightmare for life.

The razor is a different  story. I think that big bulbous moisturizing pad above the blade does not let the blades get close enough to the skin. That, or I have really fine hair and the acai complex with jojoba glide system made it more slippery and the shave wasn't as close as I would prefer.
So instead of one pass over the leg and pit, I had to make two.

What I do really like is the ergonomically textured rubber handle-it's got a real safe and sturdy grip to it.

Both Skintimate Lotionized shave creme retailers for under $5 and Schick Quattro for women retails near $10, coupons are available online and the products are available at mass retailers everywhere.

Pure ICE CRACKLE polish for costume parties and holiday soirees

TotalBeauty.com
Pinterest-to-Reality Hair Challenge

Pinning is easy. Creating the looks in real-life? Now that's a challenge. See how one editor tackles her seven favorite hair pinspirations


Pinterest-to-Reality Hair Challenge

This is a TotalBeauty.com pictures of hairstyles article

From trendy home decor to braided updos, Pinterest has it all. But how often do any of your re-pinings actually turn into a reality. Our guess? -- hardly ever. So when our editor Sharon was challenged to try seven of Pinterest's prettiest styles, she was excited and apprehensive. Does she succeed? See the results of her hair trial run now.

See how she fared



 Hello Gorgeous!

These are my toes dressed up in a fun costume pedicure with Pure Ice Crackle polish.

The base coat is a Duri polish called 'You Belong to Me' with Crushed Crackle on top. A thin coat works best. Ask me how I know!

 This is my 'crackle dots' pedicure design-and I think if I had a bigger toe and more room to make bigger dots that the crackle dot effect would be greater?

Colors used by Pure ICE Crackle:
Strobe Light (black)
Catwalk (yellow)
Crushed (orange)

What do you think? What's your favorite Crackle polish design?

Pure ICE Crackle polishes sell for $3.99 at mass retailers-go get some!

bronze beauty bottle





Hello Gorgeous!
I recently tested Manna Kadar self tanning lotion called Bronzed Beauty. I like that it is a paraben free product. Application is simple with the bronze color showing up as you apply. After rubbing it in to the skin it does fade to a light brown tone but deepens with a few hours.

It has a  very light coconut beach like smell and is very pleasant. I liked my sample, but think that I prefer the aerosol spray tanners because I prefer to hose it on if I can't get to the salon for a spray tan.

Here's some information from the website:


Become a bronzed beauty with Manna Kadar’s Self Tanning Lotion. This innovative formula is a custom blend of natural ingredients creating the richest looking
tan in the most luxurious way without the sun. Achieve a golden glow with natural ingredients ach as Aloe, Vitamin A & Vitamin E that serve to moisturize, hydrate & protect
the body with a fresh almond oil scent.
To apply:
Smooth evenly over face and body. Color is instant and will intensify in 3 hours. To avoid discoloring palms wash hands with soap and water immediately after use. To maintain tan apply Bronze Beauty Self Tanning Lotion 1 to 3 times weekly.

$24.00 for a 4 ounce bottle.

Cellnique cleansing milk & daytime protection: great for winter skin

 
The trick to having flawless skin 24/7? It's not a $150 La Mer moisturizer; it's knowing how to apply concealer. Learn how to expertly camouflage every imperfection
How to Conceal Like a Pro
This is a TotalBeauty.com makeup article

But here's the good news, though we may not have perfect complexion naturally, we can still fake it. With a little help from the pros, we've brought you the all tips you need to conceal anything.

I sampled 2 products, a cleanser and the daytime lotion with 50+ spf sunscreen. I loved both, my makeup (mineral and liquid) wore beautifully over it! The only think I would do different in a Cellnique skincare routine for me is add the Seaweed cleanser for my heavy makeup days.
