Fake Fashion: How To Spot A Fake Louis Vuitton Bag From The Real One!

20 Jul how-to-spot-a-fake-louis-vuitton-bag.WidePlayer

Fake fashion is a $450 billion dollar business. The bigger the brand name, the bigger the payoff for counterfeiters such as fake Louis Vuitton bags. Its signature series of canvas monogram bags is a prime target for knock-off artists and manufacturers. Many of these counterfeit Louis Vuitton bags are so convincing, they easily fool the average consumer. If you are in the market for the real deal, here’s how to make sure you’re not getting gypped.

  1. Step 1: The Price Is Wrong

    Louis Vuitton monogram canvas bags run from $375 and up, with the majority of the bags selling for over $1000. If you’re buying a brand new Louis Vuitton bag for less than $300, you’re not getting a deal, you’re getting a fake.

  2. Step 2: What’s In A Name?

    If there is an “LV” anywhere on the bag that is crooked or on a stitch or seam, it is not the real thing. The “LV” on a real Louis Vuitton purse will be carefully placed on the bag so that it’s not cut off by a seam or snap. Besides the famous initials being monogrammed onto the bag itself, the zipper pull and purse snaps will all be branded as well. The zipper pull should also be brass hardware and heavy to the touch. Many imitators pay attention to the details so make sure you’re paying even closer attention. If the seams are uneven or the monogram is the slightest bit off, it’s a fake. Louis Vuitton bags are all hand crafted and each one is perfectly assembled. Spend some time on the manufacturer’s website to study the details that make the bag authentic.

  3. Step 3: Material Matters

    The Louis Vuitton monogram bags are made of canvas but the handles and piping are natural cowhide leather. The color of the leather should be a light tan, with the edge dyed red and the stitching in yellow. After a few weeks of handling your bag, the leather handles will oxidize and fade to a darker brown. If your leather handles don’t change color, it’s a fake.

  4. Step 4: Location

    Louis Vuitton doesn’t have any authorized street resellers so resist these so called “deals” they are trying to sell you. Also be careful when buying bags online, although you can find authentic Louis Vuitton bags, there are also a plethora of fakes. Pay attention to the seller feedback and ask about buyer protection and the return policy. One website that is authorized to sell Louis Vuitton bags is www.eluxury.com.

  5. Step 5: Trust Your Gut

    When it comes down to it, go with your gut. If you feel funny about where or how much you’re paying, walk away. For more information about how to tell the authenticity of a Louis Vuitton bag, visit a Louis Vuitton retailer or call the headquarters at 212-758-8877

Beauty tips to slim your face

Contouring and highlighting your face can bring out your cheek bones, shorten your nose, slim your face and rid you of a double chin. Here’s how to do it …1.“Think of your face as a canvas,” explains Thomas. Once you’ve applied foundation to even out your complexion you need to shade and highlight areas to create shape. Think of the principles of light and dark — any areas made darker will appear as though they’re receding, and anything made lighter appear as though it’s coming forward.2.“I think the easiest product to use is a bronzing powder without too much shimmer,” explains Thomas. Always start with a little on your brush and build it up gradually.3.Begin by building your cheek bones. To do this, add a little bronzer below your cheek bone, from the hairline to towards the apples of your cheek, in a wedge-like shape. This trick is especially good for women who have very round faces. “[Contouring is] all about reshaping your face and giving it sharper edges — you can never have too-high cheek bones,” says Thomas.4. To make a wide or very round forehead appear narrower, shade just the temples or sides of the forehead, and to slim a wide nose, apply the bronzer down the sides of your nose. Want your nose to appear shorter? Shade the underside of the tip.

5. Disguise a double chin by shading the area under your jaw line. Blending is key in contouring your face — the idea is that you can’t see where the contouring starts and stops.

6. If you don’t have deep-set eyes (ie lids that are still visible when your eyes are open), make them pop by shading along the crease line. Do this either with the bronzer or an eyeshadow that’s a shade darker than the colour you’ll wear.

7. To bring areas of your face forward, thus emphasising them, do the opposite to contouring and use a highlighter (most likely a shimmery powder a bit lighter than your skin colour). The areas you want to do this to are your new-found cheek bones, and the centre of your eyelids. When it comes to your lips, dab a lighter lip shade or illuminating cream just in the middle of them.

Contouring and highlighting your face can take a little practice, but as Thomas says, “Once you start, you’ll want to do it every day.” His tip: try it next time you have a big event coming up and take note of how you look in photos taken on the day. “People in film, TV and pictures can’t live without [this trick].”

NB: You don’t have to use a bronzer and highlighter to do this make-up trick — darker and lighter foundations can be used as well.

Jennifer Aniston started a hairstyle hysteria with “The Rachel”. Since then, millions of women have flocked to salons with her photo in hand. Straight or wavy, short or long, Jennifer Aniston’s famous tresses continue to set trends. Find out how Jen gets those golden sun-kissed locks. Learn how to create her free-flowing curls and and her sleek, sexy look.

You will need

 

* 1 blow dryer with diffuser

* 1 volumizing nousse (if your hair is fine)

* 1 curling iron

* 1 flat, paddle brush

* 1 blow dryer

* 1 comb

* 1 flat iron

* 1 shine serum

* 1 hairspray (optional)

 

1.

Step 1: The Color

 

Jennifer Aniston’s sun-kissed hair color is her signature statement; her style is quite simple. Golden highlights brighten her brunette hair, while beach blonde streaks frame her face. If your hair is a dark blonde to medium brown, you’ve got the perfect base for Jen’s color; simply add a few highlights or a gloss for shine. If yours is a medium brown or darker, you’ll need to lighten your base to a golden brown and then add blonde highlights on top of that.

2.

Step 2: Making Waves

 

To create Jennifer Aniston’s waves, you’ll need a blow dryer with a diffuser. If your hair is fine, apply volumizing mousse to your hair before blow drying. Using the diffuser, scrunch your hair from the roots to the ends. Hold the blow dryer in place for about five seconds, then remove. You should see waves beginning to form. Continue to work the diffuser through the hair moving toward the crown, until the hair is dry.

3.

Step 3: Defining The Curl

 

Jennifer Aniston’s hair is full of free-flowing curls. To get this look, use a curling iron with a barrel of an inch to two inches. Hold the curling iron at an angle. Starting about an inch from the ends of the hair, wrap the hair around the barrel, away from the face. Leaving the ends of the hair out of the barrel creates a more natural curl, not a tight ringlet.

4.

Step 4: Loosen Up

 

America’s favorite friend never looks like she’s trying too hard. Run your hands under your hair and gently tousle the hair at the root. Now you’ve got a look that’s California-chic, just like Jennifer Aniston.

5.

Step 5: Change It Up

 

What makes Jennifer Aniston’s long layered hair so great is its versatility. She easily transitions from tousled, wavy bed-head to sleek, straight and polished. To get Jen’s straight look, begin by blow drying your hair with a flat paddle brush. Hold the blow dryer at an angle above the brush, as you pull the hair down and away from your scalp. Do not bend the hair with the brush or curl it under, pull the hair straight down.

6.

Step 6: Check Your Layers

 

When you’re going for a sleek, polished look, you can’t afford split ends or stray hairs. Jennifer Aniston keeps her face framing layers on the A-list with regular trims. Keep your layers clean with trims every two to three months.

7.

Step 7: Flat Iron Finish

 

Flat iron your hair section by section. Run a comb through your hair, following with the flat iron. This will rid your hair of any knots that could catch in the straightener and damage your hair.

8.

Step 8: Shine & Hold

 

Celebrities like Jennifer Aniston have stylists who know how to perfect hair with products. Here are two great tricks. Place a bit of shine serum or spray on your hands, then run your palms over the ends of your hair for a brilliant, smooth finish. Then calm any flyaway hairs with this trick – coat your hands well with hairspray, and press down the flyaway hairs. You’ll have sleek hair without stiffness.
