Ever wished you could look like a movie star? The fact is that most movie stars don’t really look that good. They appear as good as they do onscreen because they’re very carefully made up and very carefully lit. Even an “average” person can look good with enough attention, no matter what their size, shape, age or sex. If you don’t have an expert team available to help, there are still quite a few things you can do to make the most of your appearance – and enjoy the process.
Delicious and healthy food
Eating well isn’t just about trying to become or stay slim. Everybody looks better if they’re eating a balanced diet because it means the body gets all the nutrients it needs to stay in prime condition, with glowing skin, shining hair and bright eyes. Eating like this doesn’t have to be a chore. Think of it as a chance to explore different kinds of food you never got round to before. You can still have sweet treats – there are lots of delicious fruits and berries out there that are great dried or in sorbets or smoothies. Nuts are also great for nutrition and taste delicious fresh or roasted.
Pamper your skin
One of the best things you can do for your skin is to drink lots of water, which will help it stay soft and healthy, but another option is to apply essential oils for skin directly, providing nourishment right where it’s needed. You can also try using cucumber, which really does revive tired eyes if placed on the lids, and also fixes dark and puffy skin underneath them. If you have patches of rough skin, you can use small amounts of baking soda as a natural exfoliant; apply it in the shower, gently rub it in and then rinse it away.
Revive your hair
Even if your hair is thin and sparse, you can make it look better by softening it. Mashed banana makes a wonderful natural conditioner if you rub it in, leave it for ten minutes and then wash it out again, but the real secret is to use coconut oil and leave it in overnight; just wrap a towel around it so you don’t stain your pillows. You may need two shampoos and rinses to get it out the next day, but afterwards it will look and feel amazing.
Look great as you get in shape
Exercise makes you look better in lots of ways. Aside from helping you control your weight, it makes you more energetic, gives you a natural glow, tones your muscles and it helps you stand taller, which flatters every kind of figure. It will also give you a confidence boost, the key to that natural sexiness some people seem to exude. If you want to feel a little more confident about starting exercise, why not treat yourself to some new exercise gear? There’s lots of great stuff in the shops this season and you don’t have to spend a lot to look good.
Everybody deserves to feel good about the way they look. Isn’t it time you gave yourself a treat?

One of the aspect of fashion modeling is about keeping the angles while keeping the sensuality of the pose… Bar Rafelli catches both aspects very well – every single shoot is very suggestive, yet not vulgar. The splash of vivid colors only spoices up the sporty vibe on high standards.

Black -Red – White. Catchy yet classical selection of colors can be found in some fashion tendencies lately. The tri-color palette can be depicted on the face-painting factor as seen on Toni Garn, sporty chic clothing as well as in ad campaigns of Dior from Fall 2013 Campaign. The blonde model – Toni Garn captured by Hunter & Gatti clashes the image of blue-eyed sensitivity with the tribal vibe. The photography merges with the collage of oil painting and stitching style.

“Black Mirror” by SYLVIO GIARDINA
Art and its artifacts always infuse Sylvio Giardina’s work. In his new creative project, a small, dark,
slightly convex object with a black tinted surface fascinated Sylvio: it was the “Claude mirror”,
which abstracts landscape sceneries, while unifying shapes and lines and blurring details. The new
creative process starts from this vision, where fabrics and shapes blend and colors sway. Black
plays a predominant role in the collection, yet the polished and mirroring fabrics create optical
and vibrant effects, giving way to pure geometric shapes, defined by brown, navy blue and hazel
hues. Some outfits are embellished with Plexiglas necklaces, playing out a double role,
complementing the dress and working as an accessory. Fiercely believing in having fun by letting
ideas run free, Sylvio introduces to the public a mini collection of accessories, made of earrings in
mirroring black Plexiglas and tortoiseshell necklaces.
Fabrics: velvet, multiprene, leather, scuba, jersey, lace, tulle, mesh;
Colors: black, navy blue, mustard, brown, camel, hazel, burgundy.”
The brand-new jewellery line by „IVAN” is highly inspired by the simplicity of geometry a fashion–focused concept of mathematical forms and shapes. The creative mind behind the IVAN brand is a Swedish artist – Ivan Pettersson who investigated about the the boundries between simplicity and the aspects of beauty in order to create unisex pieces of wearable architecture.
According to the Ancient Greek, the geometry that stands for γεωμετρία can be divided into two parts geo- “earth”, -metron “measurement”. This branch of mathematics is concerned with notions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space and is a perfect base for an innovative concept of IVAN jewellery. Not only because of its aesthetics itself, but also feedback as a fashion statement. By focusing on the pureness of traditional silversmithery, every single item of the collection is treated with special attention and produced as a piece of art. The jewellery pieces are handcrafted using a one-use only wax mould and high quality 925 silver – some items are finished with gold plating.
Worth-mentioning is also a captivating idea of a lookbook campaign of IVAN line as presented on their website http://www.ivan-geometry.com and Instagram http://www.instagram.com/ivangeometry. The half painted model with androgynous type of beauty is painted with pitch black color on hands and torso. The precise division between his skin and black color represents the unisex inclinations of purity in mathematical measures as well emphasize the clean conception of geometry.
