The Best Sunglasses for your Face Shape

Tips to finding your perfect pair

Sunglasses are a fashion staple no matter what season! The right sunglasses will define not only your face, but your persona, while also protecting your eye health. Here is a guide to discover the ideal sunglasses for your face shape.
 
Square face
When you have a square face (a strong jaw line and broad forehead), try frames with rounded edges to soften the angles of your face. A frame that sits high on your face will also pull attention away from your prominent jaw. The best styles for you are a modern cat eye (with edges that round down) and cool aviators.
 
Round face
When your face is round, your approach is the opposite of your square-faced friends. Choose styles with rectangular or square frames to balance the curviness of your face. Darker colors (black or dark brown tortoise) will help minimize roundness as well. If you like curved frames, try a traditional cat eye with sharp corners that point upwards.
 
Heart-shaped face
If you have a heart-shaped face (broader forehead, high cheekbones and narrow chin), look for sunglasses that accentuate your chin to balance out your face. Styles to try should be wider than your face; they can also be lighter in color. Also try frames that emphasize the lower rims and bring attention downward.
 
Oval face
Oval faces can really get away with any shaped shades! Whether it be a classic Jackie O, a feminine cat-eye, rimless aviators or retro square frames you have the option to choose any style that will reflect your personality and mood.

Tips to Gracefully Handle your Outearning Status

Many women find themselves in the sometimes uncomfortable position of being the majority breadwinner in the household, which raises the question, “Should I be worried?” The key to navigating this touchy subject is awareness, not worry.
 
Fact: Women outearn their husbands in nearly a quarter of households with spouses between 18 and 65 years old according to data from the American Community Survey. Also discovered in Gender Identity and Relative Income within Households, researcher Marianne Bertrand and colleagues at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business found that many women with high potential to outearn their spouses – consciously or not - hold themselves back by staying home, taking lesser jobs or working part-time, choosing to not to put that strain on their relationship. In fact, the divorce rate is higher for couples where a woman outearns her husband.
 
Now that you’re one of those brave women who said yes to the career of her dreams, here are some tips to handling your new found knowledge:
 
Talk about the fact that you’re blazing a new-ish trail.
No matter who outearns whom, the healthiest goal is for both partners to have equal say in family matters, expenditures, social events, etc. Being co-bosses of the family is a lofty goal, but one that can be achieved with frequent “status of the family” check-ins.
 
Recognize that household workload will be a problem.
Hate to break the news, but wives who outearn often end up doing much more of the household chores, not less, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics American Time Use Survey . This survey shows that while husbands spend an average of 20.8 hours a week on household chores and childcare, wives spend 33.5 hours weekly on these activities, which researchers believe that wives who outearn do so to quell their partner’s fears by doing more household work, but picking up more than your fair share of dirty socks will only lead to unhappiness, resentment and burn out. A better idea is to divvy up household chores fairly.
 
Discuss financial decision-making
The default mode of marriage has been that the primary money maker dictates big financial decisions, but that should change. The partnership in your marriage should extend beyond the marriage license and into financial decisions made by both parties, not based on who makes what money. Talk about your expectations and how money was handled in your family of origin. Create family policies surrounding money spending and ask each other questions like: Is it a big deal if one spouse wants to spend $150 on concert tickets or new shoes? Do you feel that a certain asset like the house or condo you’re living in belongs to one person more than the other? Should that person then make the refinancing or even the decorating decisions? Answer honestly. Then draft a money decision making plan that works for your family.
 
Consult a therapist  
If you’re getting into repeated and heated arguments about money, financial power, and chores, it’s time to see an objective counselor to help you find innovative solutions.

 

Is Your Hair Color Hurting or Helping You?

How to choose skin-enhancing shades that work

65% of women color their hair because it makes them (and men!) feel more attractive and confident. However, with so many hair color choices, how do you find the best shade for your skin color and tone? Here are some guidelines to help you determine your most flattering hair color hues:

Discover your skin undertones
No matter what your skin shade - from light to dark skin, you will have cool or warm undertones. The easiest way to determine your skin tone is to hold a white piece of paper up to your face while looking in the mirror. Check to see how your skin contrasts next to the paper; if you see a yellowish hue then you have warm undertones. If you see pink or blue-ish tones, you have cool undertones. After you’ve determined if you are warm or cool, you can pick the right tones. Whether you are dying your hair blond or black, your undertones and not necessarily your skin color will play a key role in the shade you ultimately choose.

Fair skin
Enhance fair skin with warm undertones with butterscotch or honey hues if you are going blonde, and golden brown if you are going brunette. Fair skin with cool undertones can pull off a platinum and champagne blond or ash brown.

Medium skin
Women with medium skin and cool undertones look best in ashy colors like sand (blond) or walnut brown. Their warm-toned friends look fab in caramel, buttery blond hues or toffee brown.

Olive skin
The darker tones of olive skin are generally warm, so try ashy bronze and dark gold tones. Too much red or yellow can make the hair look brassy, so stick to ash tones.

Dark skin
Dark skinned beauties with blue undertones look great in deep coffee colors like espresso, and those with warm skin and orange undertones look best in mahogany or toffee colors.

Maintain your color!
The final step after choosing the best hair color for your skin tone is to maintain that color and the health of your hair. Dyed hair can get dry and look dull, so a hydrating shampoo and conditioner are essential to maintaining soft, shiny hair. A shine spray can also be a great finishing touch to highlighting your new, beautiful color.

The ugly truth about aging and the sun

Planning to lie about your age? The great lie about our ages is a practice that will never end, especially when you look-good-for or look younger than your years. But to sustain said white lie? Make sun protection a priority in your now-and-forever beauty ritual.

Before your depression hits a fever pitch over this thing called aging, and its effects on your skin - the onset of visible brown spots, wrinkles, and sagging - all due to  damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun, perk up. One way to slow down the aging process and protect your skin from the sun is with JAFRA’s Royal Jelly Solar Protection Fluid. But first, the truth about the sun - known as aging rays, Ultraviolet A (UVA) rays reach deep into the skin and damages skin-plumping collagen and skin-firming elastin. Referred to as the burning rays, Ultraviolet B (UVB rays) harm the surface of the skin and cause the formation of age spots and other blemishes. It’s important to note that both UVA and UVB rays play a significant role in the cause of skin cancer.

Beautiful Fact
Sunscreen should be worn every day of the year – rain or shine.
  
To age gracefully (and slower than most) is the goal, so to aid you in this, the most noble of quests is superstar sun blocking agent, JAFRA Royal Jelly Solar Protection Fluid. This lightweight and non-greasy sun block, which can be added to your daily skin care routine, acts as a shield against harmful environmental hazards like pollution and UVA/UVB damage, which leads to the acceleration of visible signs of aging. Solar Protection Fluid also protects the skin’s support structures so it remains plump and firm, while diminishing age spots.
