Position Yourself for the Business World with Personal Impact
Posted on February 8, 2016 by Kimberly Law
Are you having trouble getting a job? Are you already employed but continuously being passed over for promotion? If yes, the way you present yourself may be the reason. Questionable social skills are more than enough to give employers the wrong impression about you. In spite of stellar technical skills, if you don’t act the part or communicate with confidence employers may assume you aren’t good enough to be selected. This can be very discouraging for those having a hard time getting a job, or a promotion…to say the least.
You may think, “Why me? Nobody’s perfect! We all make mistakes.” And yes – saying ‘no one’s perfect’, rightfully applies. However, making too many mistakes or the wrong kind of mistakes can come across as nervous, careless or disrespectful. And ultimately jeopardize your chances of getting the job.
With the passage of time, etiquette and manners have evolved and undergone a sea-of-change. As societies have evolved, we have become more globalized, and new technologies have been developed requiring protocols for using them in a courteous manner.

10 Make-up Brushes I use Everyday
Posted on July 21, 2014 by Kimberly
There are a variety of brushes that range in size. The lip brush is generally one of the smallest and the powder brush is generally the largest. There are many more kinds of brushes of different sizes in between.
Make sure the brush you use is suited for the job. The best way to pick the right brush is to choose one that is a reasonable size and stiffness for what you are using it for.
- A stiff brush will deposit more colour and works well for a dramatic effect or precise application.
- A wide brush works well for applying colour to large areas and for blending.
- An angled or dome shaped brush works well for contouring or shading.
- A small to medium brush, angled or dome shaped of medium stiffness, works well for precise
work such as shading small areas.

HOW TO IDENTIFY QUALITY MAKE UP BRUSHES
Posted on July 17, 2014 by Kimberly
Precise application and lots of blending is the key to flawless make up. Because blending and precision are so important, you should invest in the right tools. The quality of the make up brushes can make or break your look. It’s like building a house… Yes, you can build a house with a hammer, nails and hand saw. However, with modern tools the job is much quicker and the results are better.
