At some point in our lives lines and wrinkles are going to take up residence on our faces. It is a part of getting older. There are anti-aging skincare treatments like retinol, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, etc., that work to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. However, these treatments take at least two weeks for even small results to show. There is an anti-aging product that claims it can give instant results in reducing the appearance of fine lines. That product is CLOSE UP Primer by Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare.

Hey Lovelies! It's Friday, and as the work week closes for most of you, I figured I'd give another Career Style post to close the week out. I did some searching online and found a few forums and groups with women discussing work wardrobe topics. One of the topics that came up a few times centered around working for a company with written and implied dress standard some people felt they could not afford to meet. First, I am going to tackle the subject of makeup. I will follow up later in the month with piece for finding affordable clothing. Right now, I want to get into the makeup portion of things.

Are these resources actually helping you or hurting you professionally?

I am sure some of you lovelies have read or heard the buzz about Kat Von D making the decision to disassociate herself from Jeffree Star, The decision came after Von D could no longer justify or rationalize the outspoken Star's behavior anymore. Many of you know about the allegations of racism, mean girl tactics, and bullying Star has been accused of. Now Kat Von D has had enough and is even removing the Jeffree shade of her Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks from her product line. But is all of that the end of the story?
