Highlight Your Eye Color With Eye Makeup  

Posted by regalweb09 in , , , ,

Just like the color of clothing or hair dye, not all colors of eye shadows look great on every person. People have various skin tones and eye colors, which can affect they way certain colors of makeup look on them. While a blue eyed beauty might not look great with orange eye shadow, a brown eyed girl could thrill in the same color. Take a look at these eye makeup tips according to your eye color to get perfect eye makeup, every time you apply it!

Eye Makeup For Blue Eyes
If you want to play it safe with your eye makeup, blue eyed beauties can get great results using colors of gray, violet, deep blue or taupe. In fact, if you choose a blue slightly darker than your eye’s color, it will make your eyes appear even brighter. Be sure if you use bright colors like blue or violet that you do so sparingly. Too much blue on the eyelid will only make you look like an 80s rock princess. For those who do want to punch up their eye makeup risk factor, silver, turquoise and fuchsia can be great additions to the eye area.

Eye Makeup For Brown Eyes
Brown eyed girls who want to go for a classic look should stick metallic colors like bronze, copper or champagne and can also safely try browns, beige or khaki. If they want to add a little flair to their face, they can be bold and try tangerine, hot pink, lime or royal blue.

Eye Makeup For Green/Hazel Eyes
Those with mysterious green or hazel eyes can find flattering results when using a shade in colors like brown, apricot, purple, plum, khaki or pine green. These colors can brighten green or hazel eyes and are ideal for all times of the day. Those who seek a modern twist or who like to play it less than safe might want to go for colors of gold, lime or bright purple on the eyelid, however.

Eye Makeup For All Eye Colors
There are a few eye shadow makeup colors appropriate for any eye color. For a classic look, ladies of any eye color can try navy, charcoal, or silver. Silver can work to highlight the eye and brow areas and accentuate those who find their eyes are their best feature.

Professional Eye Makeup Tips And Beauty Ideas
Cosmetic experts are the first to say the key to a perfectly made-up face is all in how you apply the makeup products you choose. Remember these helpful tips when creating your new look!

  • Even if you don’t have perfect technique, if you have the right brush for each area of the face, you can get great results with makeup. Be sure to use a larger blush brush for the cheek areas and smaller brushes for the eye area. An angled brush can be great when you want to apply your contouring shadow color and a squared brush might be best for the highlighting of the upper lid/brow area.
  • If you don’t have an eyeliner pencil handy, you can use darker eye shadow instead of traditional liner. Simply use the edge of an eye shadow applicator and create a straight line of shadow onto the top lash line. You will find it creates a less dramatic look.
  • Don’t think you have to buy high priced cosmetics to get great results. Sure, you might want to splurge on a few special items from Sephora and other mall brands but mix the high priced items with lower priced items from brands like Cover Girl for the ultimate make up look.

Tips for Home Hair Color and Highlights  

Posted by regalweb09 in , , ,

In today’s challenging economic times, it can be difficult to find room in the average household budget for expensive coloring trips to the hair salon. Thankfully, companies like Clairol and Redken offer home hair dye kits which can give you the appearance of having natural highlights or appear as if you underwent a professional hair color session. Using home hair color kits can help you save money and get beautiful results.

Use these tips to learn how to get the best results with home hair color products.

  1. Choosing Your Hair Color Shade: One of the most important parts of the home hair color process is choosing the shade of hair color you want to try. If you’ve colored your hair before, you can simply use the same color kit you used during your last at-home coloring session. However, if this is your first time coloring at home, you need to be careful and take your time to choose the best shade for you. Take a look at your current hair color and try to match it up to the shade samples from the hair color boxes to get a natural blend. If you want to try a completely new shade, consider looking at the skin tones and eye colors of the models on the hair color boxes. If you choose a color where the model has a similar skin tone and eye color to yours, you’ll likely be fine with the results. It’s always suggested those who color their hair at home not go for dramatic results more than two hair color shades away from their current color. For example, someone with black hair could not effectively dye their hair blond using a traditional over the counter, inexpensive at-home hair color kit.
  2. Read The Hair Dye Instructions: Before you even think about applying the hair color, be sure to read through and review the entire instruction booklet in full. While you may think all you need to focus on is the steps of application, it’s important to know what you need to do to prepare for the home hair color process. In addition, most hair color kits require users to undergo a 24 hour allergy skin test, which is vital if you want to protect your health during home hair color sessions. While rare, hair color allergies can be deadly and this test will help you avoid any major problems.
  3. Home Hair Coloring Technique: While the basics of applying hair dye include mixing the solution, applying the solution to the hair, waiting a pre-set amount of time for the color to process and washing the hair with the included shampoo, there are a few things you can do to ensure easy application and results. If you’re doing the application yourself, be sure to start by separating your hair into four sections (using clips or rubber bands to create four taut buns of hair). Then starting at your hair line, apply the solution and work it around the scalp area. When you have the scalp saturated, begin by taking one of the buns down and massaging color into the hair. Repeat with each bun. Lastly, pile all of your saturated hair into one bun at the top of your hair. In addition, be sure you wait the exact amount of time the box instructs you to wait to get the best results

Posted by regalweb09

Everyone experiences stress occasionally but if you suffer from chronic stress you should consider stress management. Stress can increase a person’s risk for cardiovascular disease such as heart attacks, heart disease, hypertension and stroke.

Uncontrolled stress can cause painful migraine headaches and sever muscle tension. Stress is so powerful that it can actually be measured through a process called biofeedback. This process measures bodily function such as sweat production, heart rate, and skin temperature and shows proof that when a person is stressed the body reacts physically. For better health stress reduction is necessary.

Through simple relaxation techniques stress can be relieved and managed with success through easy do it you methods that benefit the mind and body. Here are six easy relaxation techniques that you can do at home, the office and travel.

  1. Exercise- Many of us crinkle our nose at exercise but all exercise is beneficial to the body. Running, swimming, yoga and tai chi are all forms of exercise that remove tension from the body and allow the mind to free itself from stress inducing thoughts. Choose a physical activity that you enjoy and perform it for 30 minutes at least three days per week and you will begin to sleep better (natural insomnia cure) and feel better in a short amount of time. You decrease your risk of cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes in one easy to do step.
  2. Meditation- When you have a moment to yourself anywhere from the bathroom to the elevator, close your eyes and focus on your breath. By concentrating on the slow inhale and exhale you are literally breathing in rejuvenation and exhaling negativity. Your pulse slows, your mind clears and you will relieve tension. Its easy, it can be performed anywhere and its free!
  3. Music- Music affects us emotionally. By listening to classical, new age or psychedelic music you can find yourself relaxing without even knowing it. Not only music but also soothing sounds such as the ocean or crickets can also soothe a busy mind and induce stress relief.
  4. Massage- Stress creates tension in the neck and shoulders. As muscles are connected when one muscle becomes overly tense it tugs on the attached muscle and can create back pain, leg pain and so on. Headaches and fatigue are often experienced due to stress. A deep tissue massage can literally rub out muscle tension and create a greater sense of pain free peace.
  5. Aromatherapy- Such as music, scents can ease stress without us being conscious of it. Scents including lavender, chamomile, vanilla and rose can create a soothing effect. You can use scented candles, potpourri or scented oils to infuse the air with relaxing smells.
  6. A Warm Bath- It works and it’s as simple as it gets. Fill your tub with warm water, bubbles and or bath salts and ease tension. The warmth allows muscles to let go of tension and by adding a relaxing fragrance to the water or room creates a dual assault on stress.
Stress takes a toll on us if we allow it to. It’s a natural response to both the physical and emotional threats that we face each day. A healthy life is balanced life. Stress happens but you don’t have to let it harm your health. By following the simple tips above you can breathe easier, sleep better and enjoy a more pleasant life through relaxation techniques.

Facial and Skin Care

Daily skin & facial care makes us look more charming and beautiful. By following some easy tips, you can look younger and more beautiful without spending too much of extra time and money. Before beginning you skin care regime, consider your skin type, is it oily, normal, combination, dry, sensitive, or sun-damaged. After knowing your skin type, you can use products available in the market meant for your skin. However, healthy skin is something that is from within; eating healthy food and avoiding stress can help you the most in this. The four basic steps of skin and facial care are:

Start your skin care with cleansing. Get a cleanser that suits your skin type. Steer clear of soaps as they make your skin dry; cleansers on the other hand contain oil, surfactants and water. Cleanser helps to remove oil, dirt and makeup from your skin effectively. However, using cleanser too often can also be harmful; at times just washing your face at night is enough. In the morning, it's great to use a splash of lukewarm water to remove excess oils from your skin caused by nightly moisturizer.

Scrubs are very useful for removing the top layer of dead skin cells that make your complexion dull. A gentle scrub with tiny grains is the best for all skin types, as big grains in cheap scrubs can tear your skin and can cause rather more harm than good. You can also use a half-teaspoon of sugar for scrubbing your face. Keep rubbing it until it melts away and then wipe off your face with a warm & wet cloth. Thrash of the flour can also be used for scrubbing. You can also find some good scrubs in the market.

Moisturizer is a must for everyone, no matter which skin type you have. Even oily skin will benefit from moisturizers. Only the skin with acne should avoid it. Your skin will tell you that how much moisturizer is needed. If your skin is tight, it means that it needs moisture, but do not over moisturize your skin as it can cause clogged pores. You can go for any of the good quality moisturizers available in the market, but make sure that you read the information written on it as for which skin type it may be used. Olive oil can also be used to give your face required moisture, but it can only be used in winters.

Use Sun-Screen
The skin care you're doing can go waste if you don't have the habit of using sun-screen lotion. Yes, the UV Rays of the Sun adversely affect our skin, even causing skin cancer. It is important to make a protection shield on your skin while going out. Skin care is not only about doing cleansing, scrubbing and moisturizing, but it's also about maintaining. Apply sun-screen lotion daily on exposed parts of the body on daily basis to avoid tanning and other skin-related problems.

Some Other Skin-Care Tips
Along with your face, other parts of your body also need care. If your eyes look puffy or swollen, wash your face and cover your eyes with sliced potatoes or cucumbers for a few minutes. This is really effective in the morning. Clean you nails with white vinegar before applying nail polish for a smoother finish and make it last longer. Olive oil mixed with melted beeswax can serve as a great lip balm. Try all these tips suggested and get prepared for receiving bunch of compliments for your glowing & youthful skin.
