Eye Make Up Tips

  • For Wide Set Eyes
    If your eyes are wide set, you’ll be able to look at photos of many celebrities and models to get inspiration for eye makeup. However, to get a basic flattering look, apply a deep shadow shade from the inner corner of your eye lid to the middle of the lid. After doing this, apply a lighter shade from the middle of the lid to the outer corner. Be sure to blend, so it becomes very hard to tell where one shade meets the other. If your eyes are small, but still wide set, you can create a movie star look by using silver eye shadow from the inner corner to the edge of the lid. Then, use dark eyeliner on the top and bottom lashes, creating an almost cat-like look. 
  • For Narrow Set Eyes
    Those with narrow set eyes almost always want their eyes to appear a bit wider than they are. You can accomplish this goal by using a pale eye shadow shade from the inner corner of the eye lid to the middle of the lid. Choose a tint that will accentuate and complement your eye color, as well. Then, apply a deeper shade of eye color from the middle of the lid to the outer corner. You can also highlight the eyelid crease with the darker color and add black mascara, for a dramatic and prominent nighttime look. 
  • For Deep Set Eyes
    Those with deep set eyes or those with hooded eyes of normal width, often find it a bit aggravating to try to enjoy eye shadow. However, you can make your eyes look less deep set with a little eye color, regardless what size they are. Simply use pale and shimmery shades to help enhance your eyes. You can use the same shade from the inner corner of your eye to the just beyond the outer corner. 
  • For Heavy Lidded Eyes
    The first thing you should do when you have heavy lids or eyelids that bulge is to make sure your eyebrows are groomed well at all times. Then, apply a light shimmery eye shadow from the lash line to the crease. The sparkle of the shimmer will give your eyes an instant lift. Then you can use a shadow in a medium tint to create a “v” shape on your lid, from the outside in. This will automatically make your eyelids look elongated. 
  • For Asian Eyes
    Those with oval or slant eyes are often of Asian descent. While their eye shapes are absolutely stunning, they are often left wondering how to use eye shadow to highlight their top lids. To do this effectively, those with Asian or non-rounded eyes should create a thick, smoky line on their top lashes and a thinner line under the bottom lashes. The thicker top line should be so thick, it can be seen when the eye is open.

10 Tips for dry Winter skin

I’m sure most of us have problems with itchy dry skin, especially in the Winter. I catch myself constantly scratching my back and legs because it’s so dry. So I’ve put together a few tips to help us all through the cold Winter nights.


1. Use a cream moisturizer rather than a gel one. The creamier the better. And don’t worry about ‘name brands’, go for whatever works for you. I myself even use Vaseline since I have ‘winter hands’. Johnson’s 24 hour moisturizer is also a very good product to use on your body.


2. Try and not bath in TOO hot water. I know, I almost burn myself in Winter. The warmer the better. But also the warmer, the more it will dry out your skin. If you like me, just can’t help it, you HAVE to have your HOT bath, try using a bath oil rather than foam bath. A lot of people don’t like bathing in the bath oil, so if that’s not your thing, I have a solution for that as well. When you’re done with your bath or shower, while wet, rub baby oil over your body. You won’t believe the difference it makes!


3. Heaters and air-conditioners is killers when it comes to drying out your skin. Try to minimize the time you spend with the heater. If you do have be in the room with the heater, get a humidifier for the room. If you are on a tight budget, just simply put a bowl of water in front of the heater.

4. Talking of heaters, if the idea of cold cream on your body gives you chills, put the bottle of cream in front of the heater when you get into the bath. By the time you get out, the cream will be warm. Just be careful to not put it so close that the plastic of the bottle will melt.


5. Put on moisturizer and cream during the day. I have a small tub of Vaseline in my handbag. I even put it on my lips as normal lip creams just don’t do it for me.

6. On the topic of lips, don’t forget to drink your eight glasses of water during the day if you suffer from dry lips. The cold weather, heaters, moist air and your body’s need for water will surely dry out your lips and cause your lips to chap.If you don’t like the idea of Vaseline on your lips, get a chapstick with tea tree oil in it.

7. For your feet and hands, especially if you suffer from ‘Winter hands’ like me, the best is to before going to bed, rub Vaseline / Aquescream / tea tree oil on your hands and feet. Put on socks and cloves. Your hands and feet will love you for it!

8. Try a face mask. You get different types, so rather go for a moisturizing one than a cleansing one.

9. Don’t sleep on an electric blanket. Rather use a water bottle / hot pad etc. The heat of the electric blanket will dry your skin even more

10. Read and check the ingredients in your creams and moisturizers. If if contains alcohol it will dry your skin even more.
