Shine like a star!

It’s the end of the year and you’ll probably have a fair bit of parties to go to. Here are some tips to add some sparkle to your style!

Tip 1
Easiest way to add shine is with accessories. Get a bejewelled bag, bracelets, a shiny necklace or metallic high heels.

Tip 2
Don’t compete.
If your outfit is already embellished or sequinned, keep accessories simple. Too much and you might look like a well-lit Christmas tree.

Tip 3
Match ‘em
Pair high-shine outfits with soft matte materials like chiffon or silk for a softer look.

For more fashion tips, check out The Weekly’s Nov 2010 issue (page 116), on how you can get party-perfect.

Up, up and away!

Head over to Pavilion KL for some fun and games at the Balloon Art Festival. Themed Circus Fun, Pavilion KL’s Centre Court will be transformed into a funfair with the main highlight being a Giant Balloon Ride. Kids between the ages of three and 10 years old get to enjoy a balloon ride inside the mall at 30 feet high. Other fun activities include magical clown shows, games, balloon sculpting workshops, balloon bursting, balloon blowing competitions and more. The festival is happening from June 4 to 15.

Lip Service

Always wanted the luscious lips of Angelina Jolie or Scarlet Johansson? Let us tell you how, with 10 tips in our lip-smacking guide on how to get the perfect pucker! Here are a few easy to remember:

Love your Lips!
Loving it means caring for it as lips are the most sensitive part of the body. So make sure you practise one of the fundamentals of lip care which is slathering on some lip balm containing SPF for maximum protection before leaving the house.

Kick that habit
Have you ever noticed that the tendency of chewing your lip in tense situations might be the reason why they are constantly chapped? Instead of licking them, reach out for that balm and make it a habit to reapply frequently.

Night care
It is important to remove traces of your lipstick before you go to bed. After removal, take a wet washcloth and gently buff lips to remove dead skin cells until they feel satin smooth.

Eco-Warriors or Eco-Wannabes?

Going green is the buzz word of the moment. So much so that even royals, celebrities and rock stars such as Bono, Brad Pitt, Oprah Winfrey and even Prince Charles are riding the green wave. But are these self-confessed ‘green celebs’ really all that green? The Weekly digs a little deeper in our June issue to find out who’s really practising what they preach – and who’s doing it just to look good in front of their fans.

Top 3 Tips from the January issue

    “The trick to looking rejuvenated at the end of a tiring day is through the magic of make-up,” says The Weekly’s Beauty and Fashion Editor, Melati Kesuma. Here’s what you need:
    *A concealer to camouflage under-eye dark circles.
    *A white line along your inner eye line.
    *Black mascara to open up your tired eyes.
    *Coral blusher on your cheeks for an instant healthy glow.
    For more smart tips, turn to page 79 for your 2010 Beauty Guide.

    Update your style with a few easy rules throughout the year:
    Camouflage it! Hide imperfections with the right shape and style. For instance, if you have heavy arms, opt for tops with angel wings or if you've got full tummies, camouflage it with empire-cut dresses.
    Go au naturel. This year accessories with natural materials like wood, straw and bamboo are hot. For versatility, pick one with a touch of nature yet is sleek enough for both work and weekends.
    Old is the New Look. It’s time to raid mum’s closet or head on to the nearest flea market as wearing vintage is very now. When buying vintage, check buttons, stitching and fabric.
    For the complete list of style tips, turn to page 124.

    The Weekly’s Deputy Editor, Rina Ahmad, admits she can’t resist chocolates – or anything with sugar. So she’s found some ideas to keep her sugary temptations at bay. She now tries to eat something every three to four hours to prevent drops in blood sugar levels – but she keeps her portions small to avoid extra weight gain. Read her tips in her You You You column this month.
    Then, turn to page 146 for a complete 30-day guide to a healthier you!
