Calling all brides - grab your pearls, notebooks and dreams and head to the Brock House for the Wedding Show, Sunday October 23rd, 2011.
This is without doubt one of the best bridal shows in the lower mainland. Why? Well, you are not rushed, seating is limited so you do not feel the crush pf people, the presentations of cakes, videos, flowers is so detailed.

And the fashion show will be sure to spark desire. And of coarse, I will be doing makeup and hair, so this show is a must see!

The Brock House displays their culinary talents as well with some of the most spectacular food and wine, so you get a true feeling of the level of ability when you book your wedding at this venue.
There are great door prices, and tickets are only $35 in advance.

Has anyone been watching Idol?

Great entertainment this year, and the best judges yet.

Jennifer Lopez is in a category all by herself. Her clothes are stunning, hair very creatively arranged in such diverse styles. And her makeup is fabulous. She loves to wear long fringy Shu Uemura lashes, and lashes made of mink hairs. Ever notice she emphasises either her eyes or lips, never both at the same time? Loves the gloss.. And personally, I have started to apply MAC Strobe cream on my cheeks before I apply cheek stain - that's how to achieve that natural shimmer or brightness on the apples of the cheeks, without using glitter powder.

Take a few lessons from J. lo.

5 Easy Steps to Keeping Blemishes at Bay

CLEANSE
Your skin is most likely oily, but avoid washing your face several time a day to keep an oil-slick complexion at bay, this can over-dry your skin and trigger more grease production. Stick to cleansing just morning and night with a gentle, soap-free wash like Bioderma S├ębium Purifying Foaming Gel, $26. Available at select drugstores across Canada.
DE-CLOG
Grainy scrubs used gently 2 times a week usually work but can irritate active breakouts, so try a chemical exfoliant like glycolic acid for tougher, more stubborn cases of acne. The high concentration in NeoStrata Toning Solution Level 2 Daily Treatment, $29, quickly abolishes dead skin cells and unblocks pores. At drugstores.
TREAT
Skin cells do their repair work best while you sleep, so add a spot treatment or serum to your evening routine. Made with proven acnes fighters like salicylic acid, Clearasil Ultra Overnight Serum, $10, will penetrate deep down into your pores, visibly shrinking pimples. At drug and grocery stores.
MOISTURIZE
Be sure to moisturize! Catching sun can make your acne worse, and just because you see excess oil on your skin doesn’t mean it’s well hydrated. Protect your face with a moisturizer that boasts UV filters and leaves a shine-free finish, like Dermalogica Clean Start Welcome Matte SPF 15, $32. At Sephora.
CAMOUFLAGE
To disguise redness and breakouts, use a spot concealer. With foundation look for lightweight textures designed for blemish-prone skin . Test Bare Minerals, a mineralized powder that covers, and heals at the same time. But the correct application brush is key, and don't use too much!
