Hair Styles, Makeup woes and Red Lipstick – Are you Ready for Change?

By Cynthia Rowland | December 27, 2018

It’s so easy to become stuck in our ways…unwilling to budge or acquiesce to a challenging situation. Consider your hairstyle and makeup routines. Could they be updated? My friend Tobi recently fell in the shower and injured her knee and her hip. She was confined to bed rest initially and a walker to help steady…

Upper Lip Lift

By Cynthia Rowland | November 27, 2018

Upper lip shortening is a relatively new plastic surgery technique that will shorten the length of the area between the base of the nose and the upper lip. This procedure is also referred to as a subnasale lip lift, a subnasale upper lip lift and/or a bullhorn upper lip lift. At Facial Magic we call this…

Ignore at Your Own Risk

By Cynthia Rowland | November 1, 2018

Overlooking certain signs that your face needs an intervention could be costly long term.  Here are three red flags that you do not want to miss: Do you see and feel droopy eyelids? Does your lower mouth sag? Do you feel a bulge under your chin when you bow your head? Aging in the face…

High School Reunion and Funerals

By Cynthia Rowland | October 1, 2018

It’s curious how our minds tend to believe that we are easily recognizable to our high school classmates even though we haven’t seen them for many, many years. Our memories of how we remember those faces belie how those faces look IRL (in real life). Let’s face it, our faces change and our hair styles…

Makeup Free Selfies – Are you game?

By Cynthia Rowland | August 3, 2018

The journey back to realness…our authentic selves revealed without makeup, first thing in the morning photo.  Cindy Crawford’s photo prompted me to seriously consider photographing myself without makeup and I challenge you to take a photo with your phone camera when you awaken. #WokeUpThisWayChallenge. Whether you decide to participate or not, it’s very freeing to…

Summer Togs and Slim Arms

By Cynthia Rowland | June 1, 2018

I started toning my arms with five pound dumbbells two weeks ago with a minimal routine and I love the results I’m seeing. Will I have Michelle Obama’s sleek and sculpted arms in time for July 4thparties? Well, it’s likely they will look better than ever by then because I see how muscle memory is…

Makeup Mistakes and Quick Fixes

By Cynthia Rowland | June 1, 2018

by Jackie Silver We love makeup! In fact, we love makeup so much that studies reveal some women would rather eat less than give up their “beauty essentials.” Makeup is supposed to be the finishing touch that gives us confidence, but here’s what many women don’t realize: The way you apply your makeup could…

Keep your hands off your face!

By Cynthia Rowland | January 2, 2018

I’ve developed a horrible habit of touching my face when I’m concentrating.  Sometimes, it’s my thumb near the corner of my mouth, sometimes it’s my entire left hand cradling my neck and ear and sometimes I find myself stroking the sides of my face! What’s going on? I know that bacteria are everywhere I touch.…

Would You Have a Toe Reduction?

By Cynthia Rowland | November 30, 2017

High heels are one of my passions. No matter where I am, shoe stores seem to call to me. Seriously though, it’s very difficult for me to walk in most shoes. Thank goodness I found Finn Comfort shoes. I have a foot condition as a result of a bicycle accident years ago in Belmont Shore.…

Be Holiday Ready in 2 Weeks

By Cynthia Rowland | November 30, 2017

Looking healthy and radiant always begins with diet. What you eat and drink definitely shows on your face, your hips and tummy. Slices of bread here and there can contribute to a thicker middle. To deflate your tummy, you’ll want to forego carbs, especially white carbs such as bread, pasta, rice, potatoes and quinoa, if…
