Beauty Mistakes that Make you Look Older

Beauty Mistakes that Make you Look Older - 1. Not applying eyeliner. As we get older, our eyes start to droop at the outer corners, eyeliner and mascara can help you to fix the problem. You can fake a lifted look by lining your upper lashes with black pencil and this can make the line a bit thicker at the outer corners. Then, curl your eyelashes and add a few coats of mascara. Straight lashes may make lids appear hooded.

2. Wearing the wrong lipstick. Metallic or iridescent lipstick finishes may look pretty on models but they don’t work if you are 40 and above. You can use a lipstick formula with sheen (not heavy shimmer) which has added effect of making thin lips appear fuller.

3. Brushing bronzer all over the face. Faking your tan makes you look older because the yellow and brown bases of bronzer give skin a dull. Create a halo effect, instead of brushing it all over, by dusting only your hairline, cheekbones and jawline and blend them well. Do not put it around your eyes, nose and mouth because darkness in these areas can be aging.

4. Blunt haircuts. All-one-length haircut tends to draw the eyes down and therefore make your face look droopy. What you need to do is ask your stylist to cut some layers and this will bring all the focus to your great cheekbones.

5. Letting the foundation settle into fine lines. We are using foundation to hide the wrinkles but excessive makeup exaggerates them. So, after you apply the foundation, take a damp makeup sponge and gently press it all over your face. This will remove any foundation that has settled into lines and create a soft finish on your face.

6. Not using sunscreen. All wrinkles and fine lines are due to sun exposure that is why it is very important to apply sunscreen. Cover your face with a broad-spectrum formula sunblock to keep years off your face.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
