Angelina Jolie On ‘Vanity Fair’ — Talks Marriage To Brad Pitt
We’re still so surprised that Brad and Angie finally tied the knot in August — what a beautiful wedding! They seem happier than ever with their six kids. The children actually wrote the couple’s wedding vows. Angelina told the magazine:
“They did not expect us never to fight, but they made us promise to always say, ‘Sorry,’ if we do. So they said, ‘Do you?,’ and we said, ‘We do!’”
Angelina Jolie’s Makeup On ‘Vanity Fair’ — Stunning Cat Eye
Angelina proves her natural beauty on the magazine cover. Her blue eyes look piercing and huge, lined in black with long lashes. Subtle brown shadows give her eyes definition. Her brows are perfectly filled in to frame her face.
Her skin looks smooth and flawless. Her lips have just a clear balm on them — despite her lips being her most famous feature, her eyes really stand out in this photo.
To get a similar look, we sure to grab some false lashes. We love Ardell Natural Lashes.

GIVE IT A LASH Big lashes and bold eyeshadow are bang on trend this season.
Autumn/winter beauty trends
The runways were awash with an amazing array of colours for eyes, lips, face and nails at the autumn/winter shows this year, and this winter your inner vamp will make her exit through the eyes.
False lashes fluttered on lids with a colour spectrum from lights and brights to taupe and metallics. Liquid eyeliner was applied with cat flicks at the corner of the eyes, and brows were still well defined. Most models wore false lashes, often up to three pairs! Mascara appeared clumpy and the whole effect was pure drama. The longer the lashes the better, it seems.
Blue eye shadow dominated in shades from cobalt to sapphire, navy, and turquoise. Purples, pinks and greens also featured along with fabulous metallics in champagne, browns and bronzes for sparkle. It’s a wonderful time to try a bit of colour on the eyes. Because the skin on eyelids often has tiny veins or can redden I always recommend an eye primer for an even finish.
Red lipstick will always be bang on trend but this winter every colour goes. It’s become rather trendy to use the same product on both lips and cheeks, depends I suppose which particular shade you opt for. Shades of nude to berry reds will be the order of the day.
Here are some of my favourite products for the season.
Lancôme has raised the mascara bar with Grandiose (€30). The swan-shaped wand accesses the corners with ease and the pigment is jet black giving a false-lash appearance. Brilliant!
NYC do a fabulous range of eye shadows at even more fabulous prices. I’m mad about their Individual Eyes range, which comes complete with shadows, highlighter, primer and illuminator. Amazing value at €3.99. Available at Dunnes, Penneys and some chemists. Check out their lipsticks and nail polishes also.
Benecos is an organic range and their little duo pots of baked colours eyeshadows (€9) are perfect for anyone who loves natural products. Buy online at wapo.ie
Primers are wonderful for blurring imperfections and boosting radiance. Essence My Base Skin Perfection Make-Up Base ticks all the boxes, and at €4.79 it’s a bargain. At selected chemists nationwide.
Max Factor’s Face Finity all-day primer (€13.99) is also a great little worker and extends the wear of your foundation.
When it comes to serums, Lancôme Visionnaire advanced skin corrector is my hero right now. This product is amazing. Though expensive at €70 for 30ml, a little goes a long way. For use morning and night it penetrates deep down into the epidermis.
Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum (€33 for 30ml) is a hard act to follow, I had four ladies using it every day for four weeks, and they were seriously impressed with its efficacy in softening wrinkles.
For anyone who wakes up with oily shiny skin, Vichy Normaderm Night Detox (€17) promises you skin you’ve previously only dreamed of. I got a couple of ladies with oily skin to try this and they loved it.
If you’re not a concealer girl and wonder what all the fuss is about then you would be well advised to take yourself into Aldi for the Lacura Concealer Pen which knocks the socks off all its hugely expensive competitors. Wonderful for under-eye shadows. Available in two shades. At a cost of €4.99 you will be indebted to me for recommending it!
NYX is my flavour of the month for highlighters. Born to Glow (€9.49) liquid illuminator is available in two shades Gleam and Sunbeam. Available at Shaws, Littlewoods and selected chemists nationwide.
Everyone has their favourite lipstick. Two of my favourites are Renew Lipstick (13 different shades) from Rimmel (€7.99) and Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick 3.5g (€26).
Nude, pink, red, metallic silver and gold, and the newest shade, navy – take your pick! NYC Expert Last seven-day nail polish comes in a treasure trove of luxurious shades that add style and glamour. At €1.99 you could buy a few.

This article was found on WDSU.com It addresses something that we at Salt City Lashes hate to hear about... Bad lash jobs... You MUST be careful about where you go and what products they use. DON't risk your eyes for a deal!
NEW ORLEANS --Many women can relate to this: You spend lots of money to look good for a special occasion, and something goes wrong -- terribly wrong.
One woman is sharing her beauty debacle that cost her $30, several hairs, and lots of heartache and pain, and you might be surprised at what you'll find inside your beauty bag.
"I went to the mirror, my eyes are puffy, swollen and my eyelids are red. Of course I'm a nurse. I touched them. They were tender to touch and I was like, 'Something's not right,'" nurse Tamara White said.
For White, fake lashes to enhance her beauty revealed the ugly truth about the process used by lash specialists at many malls and salons across the country.
She went to a mall to get lash extensions for special occasion. The next day she woke up to red, puffy, tender eyelids -- the pain was so unbearable, she attempted to take the lashes off.
"It didn't come out as normally, you know, how it would with the normal glue. If you put baby oil on it, these wouldn't come out. So I ended up having to yank them out so of course I lost all of my eyelashes," she said. "I looked like an ostrich for about two weeks."
She went back to mall and had an eye-opening experience.
"I saw that it was hair glue on the counter so I put two and two together and realized that they used hair glue on my lashes so that's why I had the reaction the way I did," she said.
Bonding glue is used to adhere hair to the head. It's made from latex, water and ammonium hydroxide. The bottle clearly reads "Avoid contact with eyes."
Many women seeing eye to eye are turning to social media, sharing similar horror stories.
"It can be the adhesive that has certain chemicals. Formaldehyde is a great preservative," said Tulane Dermatologist Andrea Murina.
Murina said trace amounts of heavy metals and dangerous chemicals are found in most cosmetics and personal care products -- lead in lipstick, mercury in skin creams, bacteria in mascara and formaldehyde in hair straighteners to name a few.
"In the case of lead and mercury, those when they accumulate to higher levels those can cause significant neurotoxicity, meaning they can cause brain damage. And in children, lead and mercury can cause developmental delay," says Murina.
"A lot these problems you won't even be aware of them. So it's really important to get the child's lead (levels) tested," Dr Adrienne Katner, assistant professor at Louisiana State University.
She said the focus is on women of child-bearing age and children below age 6 -- as lead can a be transferred from mother to unborn child.
A Food and Drug Administration study tested 400 lipsticks, finding lead in 99 percent. Purple lipsticks had the highest amount of lead and while none of the levels were above the FDA standards, Katner said "a lot of these regulations don't really take in to account using multiple cosmetic problems at once so that's an issue."
Both Katner and Murina said over time, even small amounts of lead build up and if you think organic or natural makeup is the way to go, think again. Comparing regular make up to organic or all natural is like splitting hairs.
"When you look at all these ingredients, I think there's probably not a big difference in terms of allergens, irritants, and toxins," says Murina.
A grain of salt is what the doctor orders when it comes of buzzwords like "organic" and "all natural."
Two free beauty apps, Skin Deep and Think Dirty, make it easy to identify toxicity. Just scan the bar code or type in the product's name as most skin whitening creams, soaps and shampoos, contain measurable amounts of lead.
"The main thing is that consumers are aware of what is present in their products, to demand that manufacturers look into this, and have the FDA determine what levels are really safe for us," said White. "I love to get dolled up. I love wearing makeup, lashes, the whole nine, but you have to be mindful of the products that you're using because some of the effects can be harmful."
While some manufacturers have eliminated their use of mercury in many consumer products, many items found in specialty stores or bought overseas contain mercury as a main ingredient.
