Hey Good Looking! How to Look 10 Years Younger Without Surgery

When it comes to looking younger, we are all striving to find that magic pill or potion. Sorry, ladies. But, if you want to look younger without going under the knife, you need to shake up your lifestyle. Looking good and feeling good go hand in hand. It goes without saying. So, if you want to take a decade off your face, it’s time to get realistic.


It comes as no surprise that exercise keeps you fit and healthy. But, if you want to roll back the years; it’s time to hit the gym. Make sure that you are hitting the gym and maximising your beauty potential. Exercise increases oxygen within your body. This ensures that you look glowing. But, it also ensures that you are naturally producing collagen. This is the key to looking wrinkle-free. When it comes to collagen, your body produces its own. So, ditch the Botox and make sure that you are undergoing a kick ass exercise regime. Your body will be more supple and increase elasticity. So, you will knock off a good ten years when it comes to your body and face.


Lose Weight and Feel Great

Losing at least 10 pounds will ensure that you look younger. Honestly. You should strive to lose weight for a number of reasons, especially if you are overweight. Your new gym regimen can ensure that you are in a right place to start losing weight. Aim for the golden number. You need to have 14% body fat to be a healthy person. So, start stripping fat and start looking excellent.


Throw Out Useless Beauty Products (But Not All of Them!)

When it comes to keeping your skin soft and supple, the best anti aging cream will be loaded with retinoid, vitamin A and DMAE. If your face cream doesn’t have these essential active ingredients in them, bin them. They won’t make you look younger. Having a good skin care routine is important. Glowing skin automatically looks younger. So, keep your lotions and potions in place and cleanse tone and moisturise. Use your fantastic anti wrinkle cream lavishly. Slather it on your face before bed for a youthful, toned appearance.

Have More Sex

Don’t tell your husband but having sex three times per week is a great way of looking more youthful. Having more sex is a great way of losing weight and increasing hormones that make you look young and beautiful.


Forget the Tanning Salon

When it comes to looking tanned, it’s always best to fake it. Sunbeds and tanning salons can give you an older, haggard and more leathery look. Plus, you are increasing your risk of cancer. If you want to make sure that you are looking good, go pale and natural. Or, slather on the fake tan. It’s imperative that your skin is not harmed with UV rays. The unnatural light in the tanning booth can cause a wealth of problems for your skin. Not just for now, but in the future too. It’s always best to be a natural beauty anyway.

“One of the most influential makeup artists of her time” – Vogue Paris


Los Angeles, CA (January, 2015) – The Makeup Show has announced the return of their Icon Gallery March 28 and 29, but this year the gallery will be featuring another legend in makeup and photography: Ellis Faas. From her first foray into the industry as a photographer Ellis has always explored the versatility and magic of makeup. After working in Paris and London, Faas headed back to her hometown of Amsterdam and began to work with photographers including Mario Testino, Peter Lindbergh, Karl Lagerfeld, Paolo Roversi, Miles Aldridge and many more. She has worked on designer campaigns for Giorgio Armani, Chanel, Fendi, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Moschino and Junya Watanabe among others.


Ellisʼ work has been published on the covers of the world’s best-known fashion magazines. Additionally, Ellis has worked for make-up brands, such as Clinique, Lancôme and MAC Cosmetics – and she was asked by L’Oréal to create a make-up line for their skin care brand, Biotherm. After the contract with LʼOréal ended in 2007, the way was paved for her to create her own brand: ELLIS FAAS. With an eye for color and texture, as well as the excitement she could bring across in a makeup application, Faas captured the world’s attention. Her eponymous line captures her same aesthetic.


This showcase of the Icon Gallery will feature bits of her work from all areas including her makeup, photography and beauty brand. Be sure to come by and be inspired by a legend. The Icon Gallery is complimentary and open to all ticket holders of The Makeup Show LA.

OMG Granola Cookies

Oat My Goodness craft granola is a family business, created and run by mother-daughter duo Shohreh and Yasaman Vojdani, and led by Shohreh’s background in nutrition and their unsuccessful search for a healthy granola option that didn’t sacrifice amazing taste — so they headed to the kitchen and made some herself.
