Eye Shadow Hacks

Choosing the right eye shadow palette can put one in a dilemma, especially if you have no idea how to use it. Here are a few easy hacks which can help you ace the eye shadow game.

Using a Primer is the First Step
The first and most important step to applying eye shadow is to use a primer. Without applying primer, the colour of your eye shade will never pop, giving your eye an unappealing, creasy look. By using primer on your eye, the issue of oily or creased lids along with fading and smearing, is automatically solved. Be sure to use a primer to even the skin tone of your eye lid for smooth eye shade application.

Never Compromise On Your Brushes
To apply you need a good brush, so investing in the perfect eye brushes is therefore mandatory. Without using the correct eye shadow brush you cannot even think of getting the best possible results. So get rid of the sponge applicators that come with your eye palette, and switch to actual

Avocado for Skin Health

#1 – Treats and prevents acne: It’s a natural distress for any girl or woman to have the face full of unsightly pimples and acne. On application of mashed avocado can help you out of this disastrous situation. Avocado oil has linoleic acid, whose absence in the sebaceous glands present in the skin results in acne. Take some avocado oil and massage on your face daily before taking a bath. This would prevent acne and cut the existing ones as well.

#2 – Moisturises the skin: Avocado contain healthy fats, which add moisture to the skin. As you know coconut oil is an effective moisturizer because of its oleic acid content (5-10%). However, an avocado flesh has 63% oleic acid, thereby gifting your skin with the utmost amount of moisturizer it requires. If you daily consume one avocado, then the sebaceous glands on the skin would secrete a semi-fluid sebum, to keep the skin hydrated, and also to add agility to the joints and muscles. You can take the fleshy side of the avocado peel, after scooping out the

Makeup Last All Day

Primer

Primer is a base coat for all your makeup. Use primer on both your face and eyes. It helps prevent creasing of makeup and is a great way of making your makeup last longer. There are many primers out there depending on your requirements and preferences. Whether you want one with shine or a matte one, all sorts of primers are there for different skin types.

Always apply foundation first

Many women tend to apply concealer first and then their foundation. This is a wrong approach, reason being, how both of them are applied. Concealer is applied in dabbing motion, while the foundation is dragged and blended on the entire face. Also Use an oil-free foundation. If you apply concealer first then, the whole concealer will be dragged with the foundation which will result in uneven makeup application.

Remove excess oil

Even though extra oily and moisturized skin has its benefits of reduced wrinkles and fine lines, but they give the appearance of greasy skin. No makeup looks good or lasts long if your skin

All about Curly Hair

Different patterns and different types of curls require different nourishment and maintenance routines. The type of curl helps you decide the shampoo the conditioner and the serum you need to use to have frizz-free and shiny hair.

Use Hair Dryer Properly

Before blow-dry styling

Blow-dry your hair upside-down on a low heat. This allows you to pre-dry the strands at the nape of the neck and lift your hair at the roots. This will give volume to your hair and will reduce the time it takes for you to dry your hair at a high temperature.

Adjust the settings to suit your hair type

To make your hairdryer as effective as possible, select the heat and power settings according to your hair type. A medium temperature is enough for thick hair. However, use a cooler setting if your hair is fine or damaged. Consider adjusting the heat and power of the air flow as well: start on a low temperature and on maximum power (suited to your hair), then move on to a higher temperature while decreasing the speed. This is a great tip for creating movement. When you’re drying your hair it is very important because more heat can be damaged your hair, so be careful.

To speed up blow-drying

Turn up the power rather than the heat. However, be wary of doing this if your hair is fine or weakened, as you

Using Botox Treatment

Facial muscles

For a long time, the botolinum toxin was always used in strengthening the facial muscles. Before being used in tightening the skin, this treatment was used in treating people with misaligned eyes. In fact, the medical professionals are not convinced that the potential of this drug is maximized properly. It is the strengthening of the facial muscles that culminate ineffectual skin tightening.

All about Bleach Hair

1. Go to a professional.

Yes. You can buy the products and follow the instructions but a licensed professional will use color based on your hair type and color goals. However, all licensed cosmetologists are not created equal. Just like a doctor, hair stylists have their specialties. Do your research and find one who stays current on coloring products and techniques. Your hair will thank you.

2. You may not get the exact color you were looking for.

No two hair follicles are alike. Everyone’s hair responds differently to lightening and color. It’s best to go into the salon with an open mind about your color goals. A color specialist will be able to tell you how likely it is to get that color.

3. Pay attention to how your hair changes.

You have your styling routine and you have your product preferences. Bleaching will change all of that making it more delicate. It will also look dry and eventually feel dry as the colored hair gets older. Choose products to replenish the moisture. Select moisturizing shampoos and conditioners designed for color treated hair. If you must use a brush, only brush your

Make Hair Color Last Longer

1. Stay away from hot showers

Time to turn down the heat. Hot showers are not only a recipe for dry and rough skin, but they also massacre your hue. Hot water opens the cuticle to wash away the dye. Shampoo and rinse your hair with room temperature water. Dry using a towel, condition and rinse with cold water to seal the cuticle. That keeps your locks looking nice, hydrated and eliminates split ends.

2. Don’t wash frequently

Shampooing your hair every day washes away your hair color and natural oils as well. Opt for a dry shampoo to soak up grease, sweat and also add volume.

3. Avoid sulfate-based shampoo on color-treated hair

When washing, go for gentle, sulfate-free shampoos to make your streaks look fabulous for longer. Sulfates contain salts that strip away moisture and color from hair. Moisture loss is the leading cause of loss of color hair.

4. Add a shower filter

Hard water removes dyes and natural oils very fast. Filters remove mineral sediments, the saboteurs that make brunette strands brassy and fades you red hue, from the water. Filters remove soap build-ups and heavy metals

All about Eyebrows and Facial Recognition

Eyebrow Trends Through the Years

By taking a look at different eyebrow trends through the decades, some patterns about will emerge that the study in Perception could shed some light on. Starting in the 1920s, women wore very thin, dramatically shaped eyebrows, either with long, curved tails or with exaggerated arches. The 1930s retained the thinness of the previous decade, but incorporated rounded upward bends as well as straight lines that only dipped down on the very edge. In the 1940s, arches were generally shaped less severely and thinly. By the 1950s, women wore brows a little thicker than the previous decade, with a more sharply angled arch and a shorter tail. Elizabeth Taylor, an icon in the film industry, applied matte pigment to darken her heavy brows even more. In the 1960s, Audrey Hepburn popularized the practice of filling in the brow to achieve a thicker look. Also in this era, English model and actress Twiggy wore her brows thin and arched, recalling the trend of the 20s. By the 1970s, eyebrows were once again thinned out and shaped into arches and bends. However, the thick brow trend made a comeback in the 1980s thanks

Acne Scar Prevention

1. Biostimulation with platelet-rich plasma is another acne scar removal technology that helps the patient’s blood to enhance the production of elastin, collagen and improves the healing process. It controls severe acne in youth or adults. The platelet-rich plasma favors the synthesis of collagen, which is the most damaged molecule in any scar. In the case of atrophic acne scars, it allows the dermis to increase its thickness and partially fill the loss of substance from the depression.

2. PRP is a natural substance that comes from the patient’s own blood, so it is impossible for a foreign body rejection reaction to occur with other materials such as fillers (this is now exceptional). Also, the technique is simpler than in the case of fillers, since the PRP is injected by micro punctures following a grid pattern so that the possibility of occlusion of a blood vessel does not exist. Likewise, the probability of injuring a nerve fiber or causing an infection is practically nonexistent. In conclusion, although the probabilities of complications in the use of fillings are minimal, with the PRP are almost nil.

3. Some lesions are susceptible to the application of fillers with hyaluronic
