“Glamour is shine and confidence." DIANE VON FURSTENBERG

There was a time when if you knew a trick or two about making your lips redder, your cheeks rosier, and your hair glossier, you might have been considered a witch. You cast a spell over men with your alluring beauty and other women, who did not know your secrets, quietly despised you. Today, glamour is an exact science. A surgeon can sculpt the perfect nose, a makeup artist can contour a face, and a hair stylist can add massive volume and length to your hair.

The newsstands are full of magazines with titles like "Glamour" and "Allure" that teach how women can become more dazzling.

The main era of powerful glamour came about during the golden age of the cinema. Suddenly average women were turned into gorgeous starlets and hope sprung eternal in the lives of young girls reading fan magazines. They too could some day be a star. Suddenly a little lipstick gave women confidence.

Glamour is not what it used to be. Personally, I'm glad. I don't want to "have to" put makeup on, and panty hose, and high heels, although I miss the gloves and hats. I appreciate the fact that I can create a look for whatever occasion comes up and it doesn't have to fit into someone else's idea of how I should dress. Women have more freedom. With that said, it may be a bit too much freedom. We have gotten a little lazy in the grooming department. Some gals don't even bothered to get out of their pajamas, much less comb their hair and brush their teeth.

So what are the basics? What tools do we need in our alluring toolbox to caste the spell of glamour on the world?

Glamour Checklist
