Unfortunately, most of us don't take the extra time to care for the skin on our hands and neck. Therefore, a glance at the neck often reveals one's true age, regardless of what make-up and skin care has done for the face.

My first experience applying make-up as a young girl still makes me blush. Literally. In the chaos preceding a ballet recital, I applied blush myself rather than waiting for one of the busy parents to do it. My proud excitement at the accomplishment was soon smashed when another girl’s mother compared my pink face to that of a monkey’s rear end. Applying blush is a basic but important cosmetic technique. It can mean the difference between looking sickly pale and radiating that healthy glow that makes you look good even if you don’t feel good. Another critical benefit of blush... Continue reading
