Tips for a Flawless Faux Eyelash Application!

Make sure you read these tips to help you apply false eyelashes. Applying false lashes is much easier than it seems and you can do it like a pro in no time!

Want to get the most natural look from faux eyelashes? It is definitely easier than you think. Here are a few tips to get you started:

Make sure to take your eyelashes out of the package and bend them back and forth to soften the strip. The good eyelash strips will already have a soft strip so no need to over do it because most of the work will be done with you.

Make sure to measure the eyelash strip and make necessary adjustments. If you want to make sure that the eyelash looks natural then you need to make sure that the strip is the exact same size as your natural lashes. Trim the extra pieces if any, and make sure that both eyelash strips are the same length.

Apply mascara to your own eyelashes BEFORE applying the eyelash strip. Putting mascara on your own lashes makes a huge difference when trying to apply the eyelash strip because it gives it more surface area for the lash to adhere to. This technique also makes it easier to remove the eyelash strip at the end of the night because the lash is attached to mascara and not just your bare lashes.

Once you apply the adhesive on the strip of eyelashes make sure to allow the adhesive to dry. The adhesive has to stay on the eyelash strip for at least a full minute before you put it on so that it can stick to the eyelash. This will help you keep your flawless look for the entire night without worrying that they will fall off.

Lastly, make sure to use makeup remover when taking off your eyelashes. This will save your natural lashes so they don’t fall off and it also helps keep your eyelash strip in good condition. I usually apply the remover on the lashes and let it soak for a few minutes while I finish off my bedtime routine and then slowly remove them. If you use a remover and take care of the lashes they should last you quite a bit.

Notes to Self – How I Will Balance the Dosha-Effect on My Skin

Dear Me,

I know. I know. It’s been quite some time since we last had a heart-to-heart chat. But you know me better than anyone on this planet. I just keep getting busier and busier till I reach the burnt-out point and then I spoil myself silly with overindulgence – till my skin scrrrreeams. My eyes, hair, nails and skin are all grouchy. Why do I do this?

I can overcome self-neglect…

But then again, how about giving myself tiny goals and patting myself every time I achieve them? How about squeezing in 5 minutes for myself? Yes, I can! OK, so what’s on my checklist?

1. I’m not buying any under-eye cream or skin cream just because my best friend bought it.
2. If I can’t make sense of the fancy-shmancy ingredients (read chemicals) in the creams, then I’m not buying them.
3. I’m indulging in only those beauty products that suit me.
4. I need to understand my skin, personality, preferences.
5. Ummm… act on the above.

What am I?

So, after I checked myself from succumbing to the pressure of buying ‘just because’ (eyes rolling) plus, those bizarre chemicals (I’d have to be an Einstein to understand those terms); I feel good. Isn’t that so, my dear me?
Now to the next point. What am I? What suits me and my skin?

Ayurveda has the answers…

After frantic online search I stop at age-old Ayurveda – the knowledge of life. At least, I’d be nurturing myself then. No side-effects. So here’s what I find:

1. My long-term and stable energy-field or basic constitution is my prakriti.
2. My prakriti is basically made up of 3 main doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
3. I could be either one or a combination of the three – Vata-Pitta, Pitta-Kapha, Vata-Kapha and Vata-Pitta-Kapha.
4. I need to consult an Ayurveda practitioner for finding out my most dominant or leading prakriti type.

But how will I use my dosha as a part of my skincare regime…
All right, I have all this knowledge now. How do I apply it on me? Easy.

BALANCE YOUR DOSHA.

Wait, what?
Yes, balance your dosha. That’s what Ayurveda is all about. Harmony.

– So, if I’m a Vata (which means I’m thin, energetic, have irregular sleep patterns, dry skin) then I need something hydrating, soothing and protect my skin from harsh climate.
– If I’m a Pitta (I have oily skin that is prone to turning red and I get irritable when I’m tired) then I need something that is chemicals-free, no strong fragrances and protect me from the sun.
– If I’m a Kapha (I’m heavy build, tend to gain weight easily, have dull skin, can get stubborn) then I need a good but gentle cleansing products and light moisturizers.
One size doesn’t fit all. I am unique. So are my skincare needs.

Lastly…

I’ll spare myself the why-didn’t-I-think-of-this-before guilt trip. All that matters is that I feel safe and cared for. Goodbye neglect and chemicals. Hello healing touch and Ayurveda.

With love,
Me.

So, it doesn’t matter how good you are in your home makeup skills you are definitely vulnerable to mistakes and some of them you don’t even realize. What is Professional Makeup in Delhi all about?

Get your basics right

Primers and Foundations are the base of every makeup so it is important to get this right first. Most people make the mistake of not using a vitamin-rich primer, to begin with, and as a result after a few hours, they start thinking why their makeup is transferring. So, choose a primer with antioxidants and keeps it from getting messy.

After Primer, Foundation is the most frequent mistake that’s been made during makeup as people tend to go overboard not only with the quantity but also with the choice of colour. To avoid this mishap, sample multiple foundations by applying them to your jawline. It has two benefits, you will see whether the colour is dark or light according to your complexion and you will also understand its undertone.

Powdering is not the solution

The common notion here is that if you have oily skin the only way to mattify it is to use setting powders. Now, this may be great for some people but this also creates issues for others, especially for people who have acne. So, the very simple solution here is to use anti-shine gels, this will eliminate the shine that you mainly see in forehead, nose and chin.

Another common powdering mistake is the use of excessive bronze powder. Now the aim of a bronze powder is to imitate the sun’s effect by warming the complexion of your skin. So, use the bronze powder strategically and apply it on the curved regions like a tip of the nose, a tip of the chin, forehead for a bright look.

Don’t go wrong with nude lipsticks

Nude lipsticks have become more and more popular in the past couple of years. But the chances of going wrong with it are also high; so, you have to be attentive before you buy one. To begin with, don’t choose a colour that is so thick it will look like that you have applied foundation on your lips. Also, choose a colour that is lighter than your complexion but not so light that you look like a zombie.

Seal it with setting spray

Setting spray is your final touch as applying it ensures a long-lasting and fresh face. This will keep the makeup in place and prevent it from transferring. This also provides an extra layer of protection to your skin and mainly to the people who have sensitive skin. This will double up as a primer and will protect your skin from heavy makeup like adhesive and glitters.
