Night of Enchantment with Asian Fashion Week

Asian Fashion Week Extravaganza wasn't just a celebration of a multitude of Asian designers' talents, it was also a gathering of fashionistas supporting a great cause, the Save a Child's Heart Foundation. The two seemingly separate projects joined together for a joyous night of style and fundraising.

Save a Child's Heart project is an Israeli-based international humanitarian mission to bring cardiac healthcare for children who other wise would not be able to afford it. Currently, Save a Child's Heart is putting their funding towards training healthcare professionals and doctors to treat cardiac disease in youths in China. Yanna Begelman, of Yaju Events, saw the opportunity to join Asian Fashion Week with the cause to fundraise and expose New York City to the designers of Asian background.

Brush Up on Your Beauty Basics

Any artist will tell you that good technique and quality supplies are worthless if you don’t have the tools to maximize them to their full potential. In the realm of cosmetics, a good brush is as vital to a makeup maven as it is to a painter. Glance at any beauty supplier’s stock, and you’ll see that styles run the gamut from broad, blush-friendly kabuki designs to slender, lid-lining models that are ideal for creating flawless cat eyes. The size, in addition to the type, and coarseness of its bristles are aspects worth considering when choosing the tool that will do the trick.
