Considering the brand’s storied history producing uber luxurious leather goods that travel well, Nicolas Ghesquière’s latest design for Louis Vuitton is a serious no brainer. For those who prize their red lipstick or glossy pout above almost all else, Vuitton has created a portable, fashion-month-ready lipstick case that’s branded, of course, with the house’s iconic monogram.
Inspired by delicate makeup and jewelry cases from the 1920s, the mini cylinder can be worn as an eye-catching statement necklace, cross body accessory, or even as an add-on draped over the handles of a brown Speedy carryall. Launching today in silver or gold, the cases are brilliantly crafted with a handy mirror tucked inside for on-the-go touchups. And with Valentine’s Day coming fast, there’s no better time to gift yourself with a well-deserved token of appreciation. Losing a matte bullet in your bag, or having it crowd a pocket? Officially a thing of the past.
There’s nothing like a little lipstick to brighten your face and add polish to your look. You don’t want it on your teeth, though, and you probably wish it didn’t wear off quite so fast. This video shows how to apply your lipstick properly―so it has staying power―every time.
What You Need
lip balm, lip liner, lipstick, facial tissue
Follow These Steps
Apply lip balm
Dot your lip with lip balm to smooth them and reduce crevices. This will help give you an even application of lipstick.
Use a lip liner
Choose a color that matches your lips, not your lipstick. Before drawing a line with the lip pencil, begin by dotting it at various points along the outline of your lips. Then, drawing very lightly, use the liner to connect the dots.
Pick up the lipstick and apply the color, starting at the center of the upper lip and moving outward toward one corner. Bring the lipstick back to the center and run it outward toward the other corner. Repeat with the lower lip. To fill in any missing color, dab the lipstick with your pinky, then dot the color onto your lips with the finger.
Blot your lips
To blot, which will make lipstick last longer and keep it off your teeth, take a facial tissue and fold it in half. Hold it in two hands, with the fold facing you, then bring it between your lips and press your lips together gently. Release. To make lipstick last even longer, dust a little powder on the tissue before blotting.
Tip: Avoid deep reds if you have thin lips. They tend to make lips look smaller.
Heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death in both men and women worldwide. Contrast to what you may see in a movie, the signs of a heart attack can be hard to miss. “Two-thirds of women will have less-typical, non-Hollywood heart attack symptoms,” says C. Noel Bairey Merz, M.D., director of the Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center at the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute in Los Angeles.
Though symptoms like chest tightness and upper body pain are more obvious, hearts attacks present a host of symptoms that can be easily mistaken for another ailment (think nausea, heartburn, and fatigue). Identifying the signs of a heart attack and seeking early intervention can be the difference between life or death. Here are the most common symptoms to look out for.
The very first symptom of a heart attack listed by the American Heart Association is “uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness, or pain in the center of your chest.” This discomfort may come in waves lasting more than a few minutes at a time.
2Pain in other areas of the body.
Heart attack pain can occur in places other than the chest, like the back, shoulders, arms, neck or jaw. According to Cleveland Clinic, when there’s a problem in the heart, such as a blocked artery, it can trigger the nerves in your heart to give a signal that something is wrong, and you’ll feel pain. Considering the vagus nerve is connected to not only the heart, but also the brain, chest, abdomen, and neck, you may feel those pain signals in other areas of the body aside from the heart region.
Many things can make you dizzy: not drinking enough water, skipping lunch, or standing up too fast. But dizziness or lightheadedness coupled with chest pain and shortness of breath may signify a decrease in blood volume and a drop in blood pressure, which means a heart attack could be on it’s way.
Feeling worn out after a sleepless night or a stressful day is normal. But women can feel fatigued a month out before having a heart attack, Harvard Health Publication reports. According to the National Heart,Blood and Lungs Institue, this sign is especially prominent in women.
5Nausea or indigestion.
According to Stoney Brook Medicine, gastric symptoms like a queasy stomach, vomiting, or belching develop when the heart and other areas of the body aren’t receiving enough blood supply. It can be misjudged as acid reflux or heartburn, so it’s important to reach out to your doctor, especially if you’re having other heart attack symptoms.
Unless you’re going through menopause or have just exercised, breaking out into a cold sweat or perspiring excessively could signal a heart attack. During a heart attack, your nervous system activates a “fight or flight” response that puts you in survival mode and could lead to sweating.
When the heart is lacking adequate blood supply, all sorts of things can happen in the body. According to Stoney Brook Medicine, the heart can begin to get irritable when it lacks nutrient-filled blood, which leads to the sensation of heart palpitations. If you feel like you’re having heart palpitations, make sure you contact your doctor right away.
8Shortness of breath.
Walking up the stairs used to be a breeze, but if you recently have been finding it harder and harder to make the climb, seek medical attention immediately. Even though this doesn’t necessarily mean you’re about to have a heart attack at this moment, it could be a sign that your heart is in danger. According to the AHA, shortness of breath could come with or without any chest pain.
The importance of getting enough quality sleep can not be overstated.
It may be just as important as diet and exercise, if not more.
Poor sleep can drive insulin resistance, throw your appetite hormones out of whack and reduce your physical and mental performance
What’s more, it is one of the strongest individual risk factors for future weight gain and obesity. One study showed that short sleep was linked to 89% increased risk of obesity in children, and 55% in adults .
Speaking of rules, we should mentioned those regarding showing skin. It’s pretty simple – show one body part at a time. So if you’re showing your cleavage, pay attention you’re not combining that with miniskirts, and the other way around. Looking and feeling attractive shouldn’t be based on how naked you are. A little bit of mystery is always a nice touch.
These are print looks that would have disturbed your timeline this week if you are a stench follow of African fashion. As far as Ghana goes, print culture isn’t going anywhere and it’s just getting more and more beautiful.
New images by BMB photography has taking a Nigerian toddler beyond borders. The young girl in the picture presents the most innocent eyes ever! We doubt she will ever receive any discipline from her parents if she looks anything like this in real life.
But rest assure if you like what you see below there will be more. This cutie is one out of three young sisters shot by BMB photography called the J3 Sisters. Could they be saving the best for last? See her cuteness below.
