EPILADY USA is pleased to collaborate with Sharper Image on the all-in-one Sharper Image Total Body Hair Removal System and is set to launch a new Sharper Image Bikini Trimmer in the near future. After reviewing offers from many manufacturers, Epilady came out the winner to produce this product designed to be used on arms, legs, underarms, bikini line, and face. With Epilady's twenty-five years of hair removal experience and The Sharper Image's focus on cutting edge technology, how can you go wrong?
The system offers an epilator, shaver, trimmer, and micropeel exfoliator all in one convenient rechargeable machine. The epilator comes with Epilady's special Perfect Angle Guide (which keeps you at the perfect epilating angle) and Precision Head Cap, which should be used to do finer hair removal in sensitive areas.
The single foil shaver will give you a great shave for those times that you don't want to epilate, or just need a quick touch-up. The shaver head has two trimmers on it. One is a straight trimmer, which will allow you to shape and trim all the way down to skin level, and the other is slightly curved and raised, and will pare down longer hairs to the perfect length for either shaving or epilating.
The micropeel exfoliator is one of our most popular options. It is made from natural materials, and will buff out rough skin, and more importantly, help uncover those pesky little ingrown hairs, exposing them to the epilator or shaver.
With quality products that are on the cutting edge of technology, Epilady continues to produce the best epilators in the world today. For consumers seeking an easier, less expensive and more efficient way to get rid of unwanted hair, Epilady’s revolutionary line of epilators continues to be the choice for women everywhere.
With the hair removal system, enjoy these benefits:

Try these eye techniques from Artistry by Amway.
Using an eye shadow brush, highlight the inner corner of the eye and brow bone with Antique, a soft beige. Sweep Shell, a soft purple, across the eyelid from the lash line to the crease. Mix Shell and Drift, a golden brown, and blend into the creases to create natural definition. Apply Lagoon eye pencil along the upper and lower lash lines, connecting at the corners. Use the built-in smudger tool to soften and blend the line. Soften by applying Seafoam, a pale turquoise, over the eyeliner. Complete eyes with mascara on the top lashes.
For the cheeks, use a blush brush to sweep over entire Fresh Radiance cheek color quad. Follow the cheek bone from top toward the corner of the mouth to create a sculpted effect. If desired, blend outward to soften. For a subtle highlight, apply the lightest cheek color at the temples and along the top of the cheekbones.
Finish the look by applying Raspberry Shimmer lip gloss. Blend Sparkling Lavender on top to create a shimmering effect.
Ultimate Eye Look
Use your ring finger to gently tap Crème LuXury Eye 360º around the eye. Start under the eye at the inner corner, moving outward. Next, do the same thing on the eyelid, under the brow. It is best to use a tapping motion to prevent pulling and stretching of the delicate skin around the eye. Continue to tap in a circular motion until the product is fully absorbed. Crème LuXury Eye will help prep the skin for makeup and help skin act up to fifteen years younger.
Line the upper lash lines with Automatic EyeLiner Pencil in Espresso. Using the Lavish in Cashmere Trend Colour Collection Eye Shadow Trio in Coco Brown, with an eye shadow brush, sweep the White Shimmer share on eyes from lash line to crease and use to highlight the inner corner of the eye. Blend the Taupe shade into the eye crease with an eye shadow brush to create a natural contour. Using a wet eyeliner brush, apply the Copper Brown shade over the eyeliner created earlier and extend to a wing at the outer corner of the eye. Complete eyes with Ultimate Black Mascara on the top lashes.
Spray tanning and its many facets is a wonderful way to give your skin a healthy glow while avoiding the harmful UV radiation in tanning beds. Kelly Richardson, president of Be Bronze, thinks so too, in fact, she sat down with fourpoints to give us (and you!) the scoop on spray tanning know-how.
How you look onstage is the end result of months of training and preparation for your pageant. Unfortunately, the harsh lights of the stage "wash out" everyone's skin tone, and highlight flaws, scars, and imperfections. Getting a spray tan as part of your pageant prep will not only even out your skin tone, but will also make your skin look tan and healthy when you are in the spotlight. An added bonus: getting a spray tan make you look as if you lost ten pounds, and most professional spray tanning products have caffeine, which temporarily constricts the skin, making it appear firmer.
If you are doing a local pageant, definitely get your spray tan a day or two before the pageant. Make sure you wax/shave beforehand and that you get your tan AFTER your manicure, pedicure, massage, or any other spa treatment that might possibly exfoliate the skin. State pageants are usually a week in length and usually the spray tan you get pre-pageant is not going to last the entire time. Most of the girls we work with get spray tanned the evening before swimsuit/physical fitness and then again before the final night.
Not even the best spray tanners can spray themselves at home. You will always need help with your back. There are many great at-home tanning systems made by professional companies that are lower in cost than a salon/pro system. Another option is an aerosol mist, which many contestants used this year at Miss America. Whether or not you are getting a professional tan, or getting one done at home, there is a lot you can do to ensure you get an even tan.
The first and most important thing is to make sure your skin is not wet. A lot of us jump in the shower before we get sprayed or apply a self-tanner. Having skin that is still moist can cause a spray tan or self-tanning lotion to run on our skin and will result in streaks.
Make sure you have exfoliated with a "water based" body polish or scrub.
Lastly, make sure that you shave or wax before your spray tan. Doing this afterward actually removed the layer of skin that has been tanned, and can create splotchiness.
