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

Feel Beautiful

Appreciate something about your body a few times a day. This can seem like an extremely hard thing to do, considering that most advertising is out there to point out what is wrong with you.

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
