Beautify Your Eyelashes

For Grown Lashes

To have beautiful eyelashes, they must be healthy in the first place. What you need to do is moisturize your lashes constantly, as they need the moisture just like your hair. Use vaseline to hydrate them. You can also use castor oil or almond oil.

If your eyelashes don’t seem to grow good enough, then you can rely on growth enhancers. They are rich in vitamins that extend the growth phase of the eyelashes.

For Strong Lashes

Your eyelashes are all grown now. What do you do to keep them strong? Here are some eyelashes tips. First of all, clean them well. Before you go to sleep every night, wash your lashes and remove any residue of mascara. They need to feel fresh and soft. Never sleep with your mascara on, as it triggers them to fall off constantly. Second, avoid rubbing your lashes with your hand, …

Body Parts to Get Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal can be performed on almost any area of the body where you have hair, ranging from your upper lip, down to your ankles. But which areas are considered the best? Many women give us the same three responses when asked this question; the upper lip, the underarms, and the bikini line.

  • The Upper Lip: Although having a mustache for a guy is okay, a woman with a mustache is not attractive! The upper lip is actually one of the most popular areas to receive laser hair removal treatment, and luckily it is one of the least costly areas as well. After just a few treatments, you’ll never have to worry about plucking or waxing your upper lip!
  • The Underarms: The underarm is one area that must always be hairless on a woman, especially during the summer time when tank tops are the only thing bearable. Having

Traditional Halloween Makeup

Where would we be without the traditional corpse look? If you are holding a Halloween party or going to one you can certainly scare a few people with this disguise. In order to really look like a dead man walking you need to know how to apply corpse paint.

  • Apply base paint: This white base paint should make your complexion lighter but not become a mask like a cheerful clown. That is not the effect you want. Spooky pallor is the idea here.
  • Eye shadow: This should be dark blue, purple, or even black. Apply around your eyes from brow to lash. Do not forget to add some under the eyes, to really look the part!
  • Eyeliner: put a generous amount around the eyes. This will help to accentuate your eye shadow.
  • Lipstick: some people use black but if you really want to be a zombie you might consider purple.

Making Perfume

Let me share with you a few tips that have helped me understand my perfume tastes, learn about those scents and most importantly to stay within my set budget.

  • Smell It First – I always recommend to my friends that they should first test out smelling a new fragrance. The best part is that it is absolutely free. Just walk into any store and spray on the perfume that you want to try out. Some stores will even provide samples that you can take home.

Focus on what the perfume evokes for you before making a decision on whether you like it or not. It’s important that we understand our tastes especially if we move outside of our comfort zone. Spraying perfume on a blotter is a low-commitment of which it can then be thrown away if you don’t like the scent.

  • Don’t Rush Into Buying – this is one

Goth Makeup

Goth Makeup Foundation

Foundation is not essential for a great Goth look, but it certainly can help the image a lot. You need to decide whether you want to have a pale face or not (pale faces are generally much better to contrast against the heavy black makeup for a more striking effect), if you do go for a pale face look, don’t get cheap foundation as this will wear off too quickly and may not give a smooth finish.

Eye Makeup

Black is the key here. You will want to brush plenty of black eye shadow onto your eyelids and/or below the eye area to give it that dark, mysterious look. Don’t overdo the goth makeup, but if applied correctly it should really bring out the natural color of your eyes and really help to give a striking Goth look.

Lipstick

You may need to experiment with the lipstick …

Choosing Foundation and Eye Make-Up Shades

Foundation

Always choose your foundation in daylight. You are looking for the shade that most closely matches your own skin. Test a small amount on your face, near the jaw-line, and never on your hand. If you hold your hand up to your face you will find that they are not the same colour.

Eye make-up

Lights (naturally blonde, blue/green/grey eyes, fair skin)

The lights need to choose pastel shades for eye-shadows – aqua, peach, fawn, soft greys, light greens and teals will work well. Eye pencils will also need to be quite delicate as browns, black and aubergine will look very harsh.

Deeps (Dark brown or black hair, dark brown eyes)

The deeps will need a natural base colour for the eyes but can then use strong shades of coffee, mocha, steel, mercury, aubergine and smoke for a stronger look. Because they have lots of depth in their own …

Structure and Function of Skin

The Epidermis

The Epidermis is made up of epithelial cells in 4 distinct layers over most of the body except the hands and feet which have an extra layer. The layers of the skin are:

Basal layer or Stratum Basale is the deepest layer of the epidermis. It is a single row of epithelial cells called Keratinocytes which are constantly dividing and sending new cells up into the next layer. This layer contains melanocytes and merkel cells.

The next layer is the spinous layer or Stratum Spinosum. It is the thickest layer of the epidermis and here the keratinocytes spread out and lock in to all the other keratinocytes creating a kind of patchwork quilt of oddly shaped cells. As many of the joins are at sharp angles, this is nicknamed the spiny layer. Melanin granules and Langerhan’s cells exist in this layer.

The Stratum Granulosum or Granular layer is …

Brazilian Blowout Treatments

A Brazilian blowout aims to give you smoother, shinier and more manageable hair, especially during the summer, where hot and humid weather might normally affect the quality of your hair. Although chemicals are used in the treatment, your hair will still feel natural. You will also still be able to use all of your favourite styling tools on it, including straightening irons and curling tongs.

The treatment is designed to give your hair a protective coating, which seals the cuticles and smoothes them to prevent frizz and to maintain shine. To get the best effect out of the treatment, the user must first wash and shampoo their hair to ensure that the product is clean, and then the chemicals are applied. Once the products have been applied by your salon stylist, they can be heated using flat irons, so that the chemicals will be activated. Heating may be repeated to …

Easy Foundation Makeup

You need to be matched to the right color to get a flawless look. It is not enough to look at the color that is in the bottle or compact and think that it is fairly close to your skin tone. This will lead to you looking like you are wearing a mask on your skin. You need to place the product on your skin and see how it blends in to get the best look.

There are many different formulas of foundation makeup to choose from. This is not a one size fits all item. You will want to match up the type with your skin type. If your skin is dry then you are going to want something that is creamy and even possibly moisturizing. It may take a little trial and error to decide on the best cosmetic item for your skin type, but it will be …
