Well-groomed eyebrows are essential for looking great. Chella Professional Skincare has partnered with celebrity makeup artist DeeDee Marcelli to launch the brand new Brow Full-Fillment collection complete with a brow growth serum, essential tool kit and an amazing brow color kit in four shades so you can create your perfect brows at home.
DeeDee shares these tips on how to get camera-ready brows every time!
1. SHAPE: Use our Chella stencils or the “pencil method” to figure out where your eye brow should start, arch, and end. Holding the pencil, align flush against the side of your nose and this is where your brow should begin. Tilt the pencil midpoint and look for the highest part of your brow above the iris and this is where it should arch. Pencil in hand, tilt the pencil from the bottom of your nose to the outside edge and this is the ending point..
2. DRAWING: Use the Chella brow pencils to fill in desired look. Our pencils have a fine creamy tip that make drawing in the hairs look extremely natural. Apply using short strokes to draw thin hairs into place and smudge with our Chella brush.
3. COLOR: To make your brows look natural, it’s important to pick the right shade. Try to match the color of your hair! If you have many colors running through your hair (with various highlights) don’t be afraid to use two or three pencils! This will give you the most natural results. If you have gray hair, I suggest using our blonde pencil. For black hair, our dark brown is the perfect choice. I feel a black pencil is just too harsh and I like the youthfulness of a deep rich brown/black.
4. GROOMING: Now that you have selected your shape of brow and filled it in with the pencil, it’s time to get rid of any excess hair that would ruin the picture. Hairs that are overgrown should be gently clipped with scissors. If there is a lot of plucking to be done, I suggest our tweezers. For sculpting the brow (and also for any hairs that are too short to grip), the Chella razor is my favorite tool. It’s quick and has great precision. Don’t think twice about removing the hairs above the brow line! Also, our razor works wonders above the mouth or any place on the face where facial hairs are a problem.
5. FINE TUNING: The finishing touches should be highlighting your brow bone to show off and draw attention to your new brows. Chella Lace Highlighter is the perfect shade! A beautiful, blushy beige, our creamy pencil is soft, pretty and natural. Next, to set the shape of your brows, a quick brush though with the Chella Brow Gel and your brows are now camera ready! www.chella.com
It’s always fun to find candy in your holiday stocking and even better when it’s Hard Candy! Right now, I am especially loving Hard Candy’s Visibly Wet Shockingly Glossy Lip Pencil. It’s only $4.80 at walmart.com! I am wearing Brown Sugar right now. I have layered it with the Rose shade in the past too. It looks great both ways. My niece is rockin’ their Eye Def these days in Pool Boy. Check out the other cool names like Ditch & Liar. www.walmart.com
On Thursday, November 18, 2010, the original hostess on “Wheel of Fortune,” Susan Stafford, will release her much anticipated autobiography entitled ‘Stop the Wheel — I Want to Get Off!’ This first lady of daytime television game shows was the first woman ever nominated for an Emmy on a game show! The fame and the money were terrific, but after 7 1/2 years, Susan knew she had to do something more meaningful with her life than just turn letters! So, to give you a brief idea of who Susan is: She walked away from a $100,000 a year contract to work pro bono with Cancer patients; she walked away from a million dollar divorce settlement and a starring role in ‘Beyond The Valley of The Dolls’; and she traveled to India to aid Mother Teresa and her nuns in their work with lepers. Susan’s journey in the fast lane of Hollywood drove her to realize that when the wheel stopped, it was only then that she found life’s greatest fortune!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
For a gal who started as a model and hospitality hostess in Kansas City and then New York, Susan Stafford has come a long way. In addition to hosting the syndicated Susan Stafford Radio Show early in her career which was heard all across America and in Mexico on McLendon radio stations, Susan wrote an entertainment column for the L.A. Times. She also co-starred in such hit TV shows as “Marcus Welby, MD with Robert Young, MD”; “Ironside” with Raymond Burr; “Love, American Style” with Bill Bixby and “Police Story” with Steve Lawrence.
As the original hostess on “Wheel of Fortune”, Susan broke new ground as the first woman to be given a microphone on a game show which made a major difference in the pay scale. She was also the first woman on a game show to make her own clothing deal (with Giorgio’s). The fame and the money were terrific, but after 7 1/2 years, Susan knew she had to do something more meaningful. While on the show, Susan began working with prostitutes in her home, helping build their confidence and find a better direction for their lives. At the same time, she was answering fan mail from people whose mother or child had cancer and she longed to do more.
After leaving the show, Susan spent a year as a chaplain intern in Pastoral Care Education at a cancer research hospital in Houston, TX caring for terminal patients. Talk about a contrast! Interns weren’t allowed to wear makeup and there was no audience to applaud her efforts. Instead, she found a satisfaction deep inside her heart and soul that nothing else could match.
Long before it was fashionable for celebrities to be concerned about issues overseas, Susan worked in the trenches in Calcutta, helping Mother Teresa’s nuns care for leprosy victims. To get the word out, Susan worked as an overseas correspondent along with former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, making documentaries for American Leprosy Missions in Paraguay; the Himalayas; Nepal; Ethiopia; India; the Philippines; Brazil; and Liberia, Africa.
Following her work with in Third World countries, Susan returned to America’s “leprosy” which is AIDS, caring for her dear friend, Rock Hudson and giving his Eulogy when he passed away. Even now, Susan continues to work with cancer and AIDS patients. She felt very privileged to receive the World Unity Award for humanitarian service along with Edward James Olmos and Martin Luther King, III.
Using her expertise in the world of entertainment, Susan was Vice President of Public Relations for Barry & Enright Productions. While getting her master’s and Ph.D. in psychology, Susan served a one-year internship at the Chabad Chassidic House in L.A. with drug addicts and the homeless and was also co-president of the Chai Circle.
In addition to her other credits, Susan started the Susan Stafford Foundation to deal with emergency crisis situations, human trafficking and patient advocacy. As a member of the Emergency Response Team with Media Fellowship, Intl. Susan was called to Columbine and Virginia Tech to counsel survivors and families in the aftermath of the tragedy.

It seems like once you hit 30 your skin starts looking blah. You notice dullness to your skin, Brown spots where there were none, unevenness in your skin tone and even a loss of smooth texture in your skin.
The reason for this is sad, simple and true. As aging occurs our skin will slow down its production of oil & collagen, and slow down the process of cell turnover. These changes keep the proteins from doing their jobs properly and the results are wrinkles and loss of elasticity as well as uneven skin tone.
How do you reverse this process, or just slow it down?
That’s easy. But are you up for the small yet age defying commitment? The basics to healthy skin aren’t difficult at all. And the commitment is even easier. Lifestyle choices can make all the difference and delay the natural ageing process, as well as prevent future skin problems, and all you have to do is simply follow these simple steps.
Protect your skin…
SPF 30 or more everyday
The sun’s rays are at its strongest around 2pm, although avoiding the sun between 10-4 is ideal.
Sun Protective clothing is a great way to block ultra violet rays and stay cool (try Solartex sun gear)
Manage your Stress…
Make time to do the things you like to do. It’s you life don’t let stress control it
Stress can cause acne breakouts
Stress can cause you to frown which cause wrinkles.
Stay away from cigarette smoke…
Smoking depletes your skin of oxygen which decreases blood flow causing skin to look older.
Smoking causes a slightly pigmented grey appearance of the skin
Eat your fruits and veggies…
Foods high in antioxidants promote younger healthier looking skin
Fruits, vegetable, nuts, seeds, beans and teas are all high in antioxidants
All it takes is 1-2 relaxing hours a month
Consult your skin care specialist/esthetician for a treatment that will give you the results you so deserve!
Contrary to what people may say, facials are not a luxury. Professional facials can help skin problems, whether on the face, back or other parts of the body. Getting a facial treatment once or twice a month will do what your skin cannot do on its own; help encourage cell turnover and rejuvenation.
Facials performed by licensed skincare professionals should be as follows:
A proper Cleansing: to remove makeup and dirt (after this process your skin specialist can recommend the treatment that is best for you i.e.: peels, microdermabrasion etc.}
Steaming of the skin: to open up the pores to prepare the skin for the exfoliating/hydrating process
Exfoliation: a light glycolic, salicylic acid, or alpha hydroxy acid to rid skin of dead skin cells
Proper extractions: to remove build-up in pores, as well as remove blackheads, whiteheads, and milea.
Masking: a customized mask to treat the problem or concerns
Moisturize: the perfect moisturizer and/or sunscreen that works with your skin type and hydration needs
Home regimen: you should always leave with a skin care regimen that will help you maintain your treatment results until your next appointment. Included should be any recommendations for your next treatment as well as anything else that can better your overall results, such as lasers, fillers, treatments etc.
