For the perfect spotless face, Wash your face with a cleanser and scrub gently. Face masks are great to use when giving yourself a makeover. They will cleanse your pores. If you don’t have face mask, then use half a mashed up banana and 2 tbsp of honey. Also beware of the cheap face masks if you have sensitive skin–they can burn and itch causing an unattractive red rash. Top it all off with some lightweight facial mosturizer.
How do you define style? Is it all about the hair? Makeup? Or fashion? Or all three of them? There is sure no simple answer for everyone, and its something everyone has. Its quite proper to understand what makeup is all about, the basics and intent of it.
Most people understand makeup as masking of the face thereby giving it a different meaning.
Its all about enhancing the beauty which is already in you, and its takes a good dose of sensibility to create your own style and understanding colors that suits you best.
My blog is all about communicating a good fashion sense and more emphasis on makeup, welcome on board and enjoy the comfort and originality.

Most people I know haven’t realised the essence of a well defined brow and how it add or un mars our looks. Well here are few tricks to explore and amend the ways to do our brows
Arch the Right Way: Lots of us pluck the arch of our brows into the wrong place and that works against us. To know where it should be, grab a pencil and hold it parallel to the outer edge of your iris. The point where the pencil hits your brow is where your arch should be.
Stopping Point: Your eyebrows should end at the same place where your brow bone does. If they’re shorter they’ll look oddly rectangular. Too long? You run the risk of looking droopy eyed — not a good look.
Step Away from the Tweezers: Experts agree that over-plucking is a bad idea and recommend that you tweeze only once every three weeks! And, when you do pluck, pull out only one hair at a time.
Lighten Up!: A lot of women use eyebrow pencils in entirely the wrong shade — namely too dark. A good rule of thumb is that you want to go with a color that’s a shade or two lighter than the color of your hair. (Go with what your current hair color is, not what you were born with.)
Its good to note that I wasn’t perfect at craving my brows but I learnt well after making few mistakes of mine.
Acne is a tremendously embarrassing and burdensome problem. It is easy to feel that you don’t have control over your breakouts. But the fact is, you do. Now, your first response may be to assume that I’m going to recommend you see your dermatologist. Well, think again. Natural remedies can be just as effective as medications. Possibly more powerful. Sometimes, all your body needs is the right nutritional balance and proper skin care. Here are some easy things you can start doing today to help you heal your acne. You should notice a difference in about 4 weeks.
Apply a honey mask to your face once or twice a week – Honey has antibacterial properties so it is great for disinfecting and healing minor blemishes. It is also gentle on sensitive skin.
Wash twice a day with acne soap – You should wash your face twice a day with a sulfur based soap designed for acne. Once when you first wake up in the morning and then, right before you go to bed at night. Be extremely gentle to your skin when washing – do not scrub or use any sort of rough cloth. Over washing your skin will actually stimulate your sebaceous glands to produce more sebum, thus increasing your acne.
Keep your hair off your face – If you have long hair or bangs, pull your hair off your face. Your hair contains oils as well, and will contribute to your breakouts. You’ll also want to wash your hair everyday and after workouts
Take a potent multi-vitamin – Acne can be a sign that something is wrong on the inside. Your skin depends on nutrition. It is a vital organ that is usually neglected. If your body is not receiving the right nutrition, it will fight back. One common way it will rebel is to produce excessive sebum, clogging pores, and reducing the ability for your skin to heal and fight bacteria (see Acne Prevention Vitamins)
Include chromium in your diet – Chromium is well known for weight loss diets. But it is also excellent for healing infections on the skin. Taking a chromium supplement once a day will help heal your pimples quickly and prevent future breakouts.
Eat carrots for beta-carotene (Vitamin A) – Vitamin A strengthens the protective tissue of the skin and actually prevents acne. It helps reduce sebum production. This vitamin is essential for the maintenance and repair of the tissue which the skin and mucous membranes are made of. Vitamin A is also a powerful antioxidant needed to rid your body of toxins. Did you know that a deficiency in vitamin A can actually cause acne?
Avoid wearing makeup – Leaving makeup products on your skin only contributes to clogging your pores, causing more pimples and blackheads. If you feel you must wear makeup, be sure it is water-based.
Do not pick or squeeze your blackheads and pimples – As tempting as it may be, do not squeeze, scratch, rub or touch your pimples and blackheads. Do any of these actions, actually increases the sebum production. Plus, when you squeeze, you are actually rupturing the membranes below your skin, causing infection and sebum to spread underneath your skin. The result is more pimples.
Wash your pillow case every other day – Your face lays on your pillow case every day. Your pillow case absorbs the oils from your skin and reapplies the dirt and oil. Thus causing breakouts. Keep your sheets and pillow cases clean.
Eat foods rich in zinc – Zinc is an antibacterial agent and a necessary element in the oil-producing glands of the skin. A diet low in zinc can actually cause acne breakouts.
