Create The Perfect Cat Eye Look

First of all, choose an eye shadow shade that is a little bit lighter than the skin tone of your eyelid and using a large eye shadow brush, lightly dust all over your eyelid.

Then, apply a highlight colour following the natural arch of your eyebrow, beginning from the inner brow and then sweeping outwards. At the edge of your eye crease apply a subtle brown shadow brushing inwards to about half way. Using a fluffy eye shadow brush, blend the shadow to make a more subtle appearance.

Next, draw a line as close as possible to your lash line starting in the middle of your top lid, bringing the line upwards past the lash line to create the eyeliner wing. Bring the line back to the inner corner of the eye. You can choose a thin line for an elusive look or a thick line for a more … Read the rest

Avoid Sun Over-Exposure

Truth be told, age spots are not usually caused any aging at all. They are basically hyperpigmentation (excess melanin in the skin) brought on by sun-exposure. The spots you are seeing now were years in the making.

So your age spots are basically payback for years of sun-drenched activities you undertook without adequately protecting yourself from the sun.

All those UV rays turbocharge melanocyte, which are dark-pigment producing cells. As a result, the melanin is produced and it then clusters into brown spots.

So it’s best to avoid over-exposing yourself to the sun as so doing could bring on more spots and darken current spots. That said, you do need some exposure to the sun because sun exposure does bring some very important health benefits.

By using a sunscreen, you’ll be able to limit your sun exposure. All sunscreens are not made equal though. It’s very … Read the rest

Remove Facial Hair With Threading

Threading is something which poses less risk to woman’s beauty while benefiting to a great extent. It is an ancient way of removing body and facial hair, a practice that originates in Iran. Unwanted facial hair is removed using a thread to pull the hair from the follicles. Threading is usually done at salons by experienced practitioners, and is more effective than bleaching or shaving. Also, it is more painful than waxing, but the results are well worth it. Here is how you can remove facial hair with threading.

Buy a spool of pure white cotton thread. Get two feet of thread and hold one end of the thread in each hand. Knot the ends together to form a circle. Still holding the thread with two hands, wind it ten times until the thread’s shape looks like a bow tie. The middle of the thread should contain the wound portion.… Read the rest

Making the decision to get laser facial rejuvenation isn’t always easy. It sometimes takes a while to accept our skin issues. It can be even more difficult to explore the ways of solving them.

Have A Smart Smooth Shave

Prepare To Shave

When you decide to shave, you must be prepared. A large percentage of men experience irritated skin after shaving because they don’t take care in ensuring it is done at the right time, the razor is clean, the facial hair is soft enough to be cut and what to do after shaving.

The Right Time

Most people will say the right time to shave is early in the morning. Why? Because that is normally the time when we groom ourselves to face the world. Dermatologist might say that the facial hair is more relaxed in the mornings than at nights. On the other cheek, it may be argued that the skin gets time to relax and heal in the night after shaving. The right time for me is anytime the hair is at least one eighth of an inch long, whether it is early in the morning … Read the rest

Beach Hairstyles

Microdermabrasion Treatments

The top most layer of the skin is the stratum corneum that acts as a barrier between the lower skin layers and the outside environment. This layer is where fine wrinkles, blemishes and skin imperfections occur. When one applies lotions to the skin, only part of the moisture penetrates to the lower layer. Microdermabrasion treatments are non surgical and rejuvenate and freshen the facial skin and take place at the stratum corneum level. This is a less aggressive approach as opposed to dermabrasion as the beauty therapist uses an abrasive instrument that gently sands the skin, removing uneven and thicker outer layers. There are two different types of treatments; one is using a diamond tipped wand and the other a handheld device.

Microdermabrasion is used to treat sun damage and discolouration, to lessen the appearance of wrinkle and fine lines and treat light scarring as well as other skin conditions.

LED Light Therapy

LEDs (light emitting diodes) in very specific nanometer ranges are readily accepted into your skin and tissue and are able to permeate the many layers of your skin. As they penetrate into the skin these powerful wavelengths stimulate collagen and elastin production, boost cellular energy, increase circulation, and prompt reparative and healing properties. These reactions within the body help to drastically improve the appearance of your skin.

LED light therapy has been thoroughly researched and proven to tighten and firm, reduce wrinkles, fade age spots and scarring, lessen skin coarseness, and promote a more even complexion. There is no downtime, pain, or side effects with these treatments making it a safe and non-invasive option for promoting a younger appearance while toning the contours of your face.

Create a Smokey Eye Look

To start your transformation and create that smoky eye look you have to first determine the colors that you want to work with. The best choices for those who are looking for a sexy new look is to go with a black, grey, or a brown color of eye shadow. If you are feeling especially daring this evening you can go to the extreme and try a burgundy, plum, or navy eye shadow. Be certain to match the color of your eyeliner to pull off the smoky look successfully.
