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 brushes.

Define Your Eyes with a Cut Crease Blend
In order to get the focus on your eye shadow, you need to apply contrasting shades on the eyelids. To create the look take a darker and blend it on the upper crease. Connect the end of the line with the outer corner of your eye to create a contrast. This will help you get the desired effect in absolutely no time.

Use a White Shadow to Make the Colours Vibrant
To make your eye makeup pop, apply a white eye shade before using the colour of your choice. This will significantly brighten the shade you apply. Simply apply the white shadow and blend it all over your lids. You can then apply any other colour and see the difference for yourself.

Applying eye shade can be tricky, but practice makes perfect, and you can perfect your application if you try and experiment with different shades of eye shades.

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 delicious fruit. Then rub the peel on your skin and feel how it feel refreshed.

You can also mash-up the ripe avocado and add a little drop of lemon juice, egg white, and mixture all the ingredients. Then use it as a face mask. Once it is dry, rinse off your face with a gentle face wash, as you certainly won’t like the smell of eggs on the face.

Alternatively, you can also combine the pulp of ripe avocado with olive oil (3-4 drops), honey (1 tablespoon), and yogurt (1 tablespoon) to make a wonderful face mask. Apart from cleansing, it also adds moisture to the face.

#3 – Protects from the sun: You cannot avoid going outdoors, but the harmful ultra-violet rays of the sun damage the DNA, which even leads to skin cancer. However, according to a medical research, poly-hydroxylated fatty alcohols, which is a type of fat found in avocados can decrease skin inflammation and the cellular damaged induced by radiation. You can apply the pulp of ripe avocado as a face pack to enhance the DNA repair of your skin. Avocado protects the skin cells from malignancy caused by UV-rays of the sun. Avocados also contain Vitamins E and C, which fight DNA-altering UV rays and stops damage. This is the reason doctors recommend avocado for skin.

#4 – Smooths out wrinkles: Age naturally makes fine lines and wrinkles appear on the skin. Sometimes, overexposure to sun can also result in wrinkled face in a younger age. But, avocados can help you turn the clock back, as it comes with profuse anti-oxidants like vitamins E and C. These anti-oxidants help to fight the free radicals that cause damage to the skin. Avocado oil also has elastin and collagen that keep up the elasticity and structure of the skin. Moreover, oleic acid present in avocados can reach even the second layer of the skin and give nourishment deeply, preventing wrinkles and fine lines, which are actually triggered by dryness. Your skin gets a new lease of life with the blessings of avocados.

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 is oily; it only results in the makeup smudging. Always keep face powder and blotting paper with you so that you can keep removing oil and shine off from your skin. This step will not only will your makeup last longer but will also ensure that your makeup looks good.

Avoid touching your face

We literally use our hands all the time because of which a lot of dirt and oil gets accumulated on our hands. If you have a habit of touching your face a lot then you are transferring those oil and dirt onto your face. By avoiding touching your face you get to minimize the oil on your face and keep your makeup intact. The more you touch your face, the more the makeup will come off, resulting in ruined makeup and makeup coming off sooner. If you have a habit of touching your face then you can use a setting spray, this will decrease your urge to touch your face also keep your makeup in place.

Using the right tools

If you think that having all the best products will result in great long lasting makeup then you are mistaken. Makeup tools are equally important as makeup products that affect the duration of your makeup. Using quality brushes and sponges will ensure good coverage and blended makeup.

Loose powder

Using loose powder for setting makeup is a great option when you don’t want to feel like you’ve added something extra to your skin. A small amount of loose powder goes a long way with a brush and reduces oil and shine on your skin. Also you can Layer your cream or liquid based products with a matching powder.
