Eye care

Here are some ways to pamper yourself and keep your eyes looking young and fresh. You can use potatoe slices on your eyes. Cucumbers also work well. They sooth your eyelids, and whiten the skin around them, bringing out your eyes. Never go to sleep while wearing eye makeup. Also be sure to not stretch out your eye lids when applying makeup. This causes premature wrinkles. You can try to use a Q-tip or your finger to press on the crease of your eye. This creates a taunt eye without creating the wrinkles.

Perfect hair volume

Need that extra push in the back? Is you hair too limp to fill out the features of your face? Try theese tips to have you looking gorgeous in simple steps.

In the back

If the back of your head is too flat:

Part your hair down the middle of your crown. Next take a rat-tail comb and tease a section in the back. Tease more sections at the back of your head until there is a large messy lump. Now pull sections from the middle and front back over the lump. Then hold in place with one hand while spraying with the other.

At the bottoms

If your hair is straight and tinning at the bottom:

Spray with a moisturiser just at the bottom. Now take a rat-tail comb and pull half of your hair on the top up. Next teasethe remaining hair at the bottoms. Let the rest of your hair down. Take a straightener and straighten the hair that is not teased on top. Straighten from just below the roots to the bottom, curving the bottom in as your reach it.

These tips should help you get the great-looking hair that you deserve!

How to wash your hair correctly

Healthy hair is maintained only by how well you wash it. Here is the correct way to wash your hair, while leaving it shiny, full of volume, and silky.

~ Comb hair thoroughly.

~ Squirt a small puddle of shampoo into your hand.

~ Apply to scalp (top of head).

~ Wash well (nly from top of hair to middle, the ends will become dry if washed).

~ Rinse thouroughly.

~ Repeat all steps (the first time is for washing, and the second time is for shine and ridding the hair of any excess dead skin cells in the hair).

~ Apply a genorous ammount of conditioner from the ends of your hair to the middle. You do not want your scalp tp be greasy.

~ Pull hair back into a ponytail, bun, or put it in a showercap.

~ Release hair after five minutes.

~ Comb hair through with wide tooth comb.

~ Rinse thouroughly.

Now enjoy your new shiny and silky-smooth hair with tons of volume!


%Skincare tip#1: Drink at least 10 cups of water a day. Hydrating your skin is the most important tip!

Skincare tip #2: Eat at least 3 servings of fruit and vegetables every day! Your skin needs the essential vitamins in plants.

Skincare tip #3: Wash your skin every day and exfoliate every week. New skin cells can't be made if there is nowhere to put them. Rub and scrub all of the dead cells away!

Skincare tip#4: Stay out of the sun as much as possible. Or you can use an spf of at least 40. The sun creates wrinkles in your skin, and it dehydrates your entire body.

Skincare tip #5: Get at least 10 hours of sleep. Or at least try! When we sleep our bodies rebuild cells and replace dead ones.

Skin whitening

There are some home remedies that are said to whiten your skin. However not all of them do a very good job. A lot of times they leave splots on your skin. I would recomend a skin whitening product. GirLite Girindus has a a nice skin whitening product. It may be costy but it will definately show results!

Good quality clothes

When you go to try on a clothing item when you are shoping, you should always check the fabric. Try to stretch it out with your hands. If you can hear the strings break then the cloth is no good. Next try it on. Spread out your arms and legs, move around, put your arms behind your back, and maybe jump a little. Some clothes stretch out and get ruined when you move around. Just becuase its cute does not mean it will last.

The best appliction

Great brushes make for a great application. When you get a makeup kit always through out the brushes that come with it. Even the best companies want to save money on brushes, so they use the cheapest ones to put in your kit. The best breushes are natrually the most expensive, so don't be afraid to splurge on them! It is very unlikely to find a great set of brushes for a nice price. Keep this advice close to mind the next time you go shopping for cosmetics. Great brushes are easy to use, and easy to make your application look like its a million bucks!
