Celebrity Cruises Presents Star-Studded Musical Performances, Revolutionary Gaming Experiences On Caribbean Christmas Cruises

For makeup artists, variety is imperative. Texture and tone are some of the most important when it comes to choosing foundations and concealers; pick a variety of undertones, colors and textures when selecting foundations. Eyeshadows, blushers and lip colors are a given. Remember that creams and powders can be versatile and can also be mixed. What are some of the biggest fall makeup trends? Orange is IN, but leaning towards more muted, warmer tones like corals. Makeup has become either very minimal or very transformative. Women have been rocking a full face or just the bare minimum to enhance their features. Subtle pops of color are also in for you minimalist girls; a silver or gold cat-eye or a pop of electric blue in the lower lash line has become very trendy. Speaking of minimal, what are some tips for athletes who wear makeup? The best thing I can recommend for an athlete is a BB Cream. Off the court, stick to something light; you’ve probably been sweating and don’t need to clog your pores. Any insight you can give us into the Williams sisters’ makeup bags? Serena has one of the best faces I’ve ever done; her features are very defined, and minimal makeup looks great on her. In her makeup bag for the court, I know she uses moisturizer and lip balm; there is NO room for makeup on her tennis court!

Cora, who is of Greek-American heritage, knows a thing or two about olive oil. Shes partnered with the Mediterranean cuisine company Gaea, to develop Cat Coras Kitchen by Gaea — a range of olive oils, tapenades, cooking sauces and vinegars. Here are six truths about olive oil that will hopefully add clarity to your next bottle you purchase. TRUE OR FALSE? Olive oil isn’t good for frying food False: It does have a high smoking point, meaning it can go up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. The reason why a lot of people do not fry, deep fry, with olive oil is because its expensive. TRUE OR FALSE? Oil that isn’t first cold-pressed is just the leftover oil True: The first press is the cold press, meaning its without heat or chemicals, and its extra virgin meaning, it is the premium olive oil that you want to buy. Anything else is a pure olive oil or its a leftover olive oil.” TRUE OR FALSE? Cooking olive oil destroys its health benefits True: It does destroy some of the health benefits. It definitely does because of the heat … but what we do in the Mediterranean is we will cook with a little bit of olive oil and then well actually add a drizzle of fresh olive oil on top … to keep those benefits. TRUE OR FALSE? You should store olive oil in the refrigerator False: Unless you live in an extremely humid, hot place you might want to do that, but other than that in a cool dark place, just like you would with wine. TRUE OR FALSE? Never buy oil that looks cloudy True: Thats actually not so good. Those are unfiltered and what happens is they dont last as long. So you definitely want to buy one thats nice, and clear. Youre always going to find them mostly in a darker bottle, but if you dont, it should be a nice dark green olive oil –and then have extra-virgin on the label.” TRUE OR FALSE?

EDT October 2, 2013 Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Summit. SHARE 59 CONNECT 36 TWEET COMMENTEMAILMORE More than 300 passengers and crew on the Celebrity Summit have been hit with a stomach bug identified as norovirus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The ship is on a two-week Canada/New England sailing, which embarked from Bayonne, N.J., on Sept. 21 and is due to return there on Saturday. In response to the outbreak which the CDC said affected 14.5% of passengers and 1.5% of crew onboard a beefed up cleaning and disinfection plan has been put in place on the ship. The CDC is also working with the cruise line on how to deal with “active cases” and cleansing procedures for when the ship returns to Bayonne. Through its Vessel Sanitation Program, the CDC said it would send an epidemiologist and an environmental health officer to meet the ship and do a health assessment, as well as to monitor sanitation procedures. The predominant symptoms of the gastrointestinal illness are vomiting and diarrhea. “Those affected by the short-lived illness have responded well to over-the-counter medication being administered onboard the ship,” said Celebrity Cruises spokeswoman Cynthia Martinez. “At Celebrity Cruises we have high health standards for all our guests and crew. During the sailing, we are taking a number of steps to prevent the transmission of the illness, including implementing enhanced cleaning procedures and protocols, and using special cleaning products and disinfectants that are proven to kill norovirus to clean throughout the ship. These activities will continue as the sailing proceeds,” Martinez explained. Ill passengers on the current sailing were confined to their cabins to prevent further spread and will be compensated for their lost vacation time, she added. Martinez said an “extensive and thorough sanitizing onboard the ship and within the cruise terminal,” would also take place in Bayonne to prevent the illness from affecting the ship’s next sailing also on a Canada/New England itinerary, embarking Saturday.
