For the Fashionistas out there make-up, clothing, and accessories provide the accentuation of the image that is put forth to the world. They are not a mask to cover up, but a call to view the spectacular view of confidence that you have to exude. So above all less is more.

The key is to look for mineral based, minimum ingredient, and natural products. Basically, if you could not eat it do not wear it, imagine that your skin is eating it. So just like any portion of food apply only as much as is necessary, plus by not over doing it daily it lasts longer and saves money.

Load them up with colorful toppings like brocolli, which 100 calories of has twice as much protein as 100 calories of steak, and bell peppers, which are loaded with vitamin C.
