My Ember Month Collection...

Hi guys, been a while I posted pictures of my beads here. I've been sooooo mega swamped with work that looking at myself in the mirror has become a task instead of a normality.

Anyway, made loads of beads in the past few months and I didn't even have the time to take pictures of some of them but I still have a few I can share.

Skin Care Routine For Men....

Guys lets face it: If you care about how you look, if you want to make a good impression, your skin is the first place to start....

I'm sure lots of guys are wondering why anyone will be writing about beauty routines for Men. Well, it won't kill you to spend a little extra time caring for your skin, neither will it hurt your masculinity.

Traditionally, men spend less time caring for their skin like women do but spend more time damaging it through outdoor sports and other outdoor activities. As we all know, you men spend more time outdoors and this exposes your skin to environmental pollutants, causing poor skin health.

Casual Friday Makeover

Hi Makeup lovers, been a few days since you last saw me here ;)

I did my "almost regular" casual Friday makeover for a colleague (shh!!! My boss must not hear) and decided to share with you guys.

You won't believe what I used to achieve this "pretty girl" look.... Eye liners!  Oh yes, just different shades of  'not so expensive' eye liners. Though I used  pink gloss right after the lip pencil just to give her lips some shine.

How To Apply Red Lipstick To Fit Your Skin Tone, Lips & Skin Colour

Hi guys, been a while. I always don't like to say this but it's been my regular line for a while now. I'm so sorry I haven't been writing as much as I used to but I'll try to be more regular.

Red Lipstick............ That's one lip colour I wear often or....all the time, except once in a blue moon when I have my bubble gum pink on *covers face*
I've had lots of friends ask me why I only wear this one shade of lipstick. The funny thing is, I actually have over 50 shades of lipstick but I really don't mind wearing red.

Ook! Back to the topic... Red lipsticks are one lip product that have refused to go out of trend but still, lots of ladies are too conservative or scared to wear it. I've had several wedding/event makeovers where the client refuses to let me apply red lipstick on then (my strong persuasive/convincing skills never fail me though). I find this confusing sometimes because red is vintage. If your old mothers and grandmothers could be courageous enough to wear red, why not young & vibrant you?

Red Jewellery Fever...Give Other Colours A Try

Hi ladies, the red fever is still on but I think we should try out new colour replacements for black and red. Every lady getting married now wears a piece of red, which is mostly brought on with the use of red beads or other red accessories (shoes & purses).

Darkening of The Lips...Causes & Remedies

If you have naturally dark lips, then this post is not for you  **wink**.

As easy as it is to blame lip products for the 'gradual' darkening of your lips, you should know that lots of other things such as; smoking, consumption of tea & coffee, exposure to sunlight and dehydration can also contribute to the darkening of your lips. I've listed a couple of things that can cause your natural lip colour to change below;

Blackheads & How To Get Rid of Them.

Most of you have the notion that blackheads are dirty and caused by accumulated dirt on the skin or poor hygiene, so you think scrubbing your face will solve the problem but it won't. Blackheads are just a product of oxidization in the facial skin which results in the accumulation of oil (mostly containing keratin & modified sebum) in the sebaceous glands. So, don't stress your face or cause damage to your skin by over scrubbing it.

There are ways to get rid of black heads which is basically by exfoliation but using different products.

My Top 10 Tricks To Keep Your Makeup On All Day.

I haven't been so regular here lately. Not my fault guys, been buried deep in a lot of things and also have loads of clients to meet up with. Though that isn't enough reason to leave you all unattended to ;)

So today, I'm going to be giving you some of my very best tips on getting your makeup to stay on all day without smudging, smearing, melting, cleaning/wiping off or making you look tired. It's all about perfection right? So lets perfect out makeup skill to give us that flawless look all day long because your outlook really does matter.

Tip 1
I'll start with the face. This is the base for any makeup you're applying, so your face has to be well taken care of to help hold your makeup. When starting your makeup application, the first thing to do after washing your face is moisturizing. Like I said in one of my earlier posts, if your skin is really oily, you can skip the moisturizer. Next step is the face/foundation primer. Make sure you prime your face before applying foundation. It helps absorb all the oil secreted.

How To Make Your Nose Look Smaller Using Makeup

Not everyone is blessed with the perfect feature, either body of facial. That's why most people result to plastic/corrective/cosmetic surgery. The face is the first thing people see when they see you, this makes your facial features very important (at least to some people).

Lots of people go through a lot just to perfect that sagging skin, big n full lips or wide,long & big nose. Well I've got great news for you concerning that nose job you wanted to get. There's an alternative.
Instead of spending so much altering your natural, God given bogus nose ;), you can always create an optical illusion with makeup. This is called contouring and highlighting.

Caring For The Skin Around Your Eyes.

The skin is very delicate, especially the areas around your eyes.Not only harsh weathers but several other factors can affect this delicate area causing blood vessels to show, shrinking of the skin, puffiness, redness or bags and also, dark circles developing under the eye area.

- Shrinking of the skin around the eyes can be as a result of dehydration of the skin. In order to avoid this, make sure you wash your face thoroughly every night and use a mild cleansing product or a few drops of baby shampoo to cleanse the eye area especially if you have very sensitive skin. A moisturizer, preferably one containing hyaluronic acid should then be used and properly massaged into this area until its completely absorbed by the skin.

Choosing The Right Foundation....

Every lady wants her face looking perfectly blended and flawless when she's going out. well, there's only one way to get that flawless looking skin if you don't already have it. Buy a good foundation.

Foundation is one makeup accessory you don't want to stay away from. It helps brighten up your face, especially when your skin is stressed. Lots of ladies already have one of these in their makeup bags/purses but using it is usually a problem. Its either because they got the wrong shade of foundation, thereby making their face too white or dark. Sometimes, buying the wrong product is usually the problem.

For me, the best bet when it comes to foundation is either Mary Kay (above) or Maybelline (below) matte wear foundation. I've heard people make comments about these products, saying they aren't the best for our weather. well, you all are wrong. These foundations come in different shades and skin tone blends that suit all kinds of skin colour, so all you need to do is pick the right shade.

How To Groom Your Eyebrows Perfectly 3

I'm some people are wondering why I'm not giving you tips on how to actually apply your eyebrow pencils or 'draw' the perfect brows instead of the long stories on face shapes, types of eyebrows, arch's e.t.c...
Well, you can have perfectly groomed eyebrows that still won't fit your face shape and that's just wrong.

Since I've been able to put you through choosing the perfect brow shape that best suits your face shape, I'll move on to giving you tips on how to achieve those perfect looking eyebrows.

Firstly, you need to know the outline of your eyebrows. In the diagram, angle A shows the inner corner of your eyes which is directly above your eyes. If yours is not that full, you can always fill it up with your pencil. Angle B is the arch and that's were your brow bone is located, so make sure your arch is well elevated and above the brow bone. Angle C is the outer corner of your brows and ensure not to extend yours beyond what is shown in the diagram.

How To Groom Your Eyebrows Perfectly 2

Hi beautiful ladies, I'm sure most of you have been able to identify your face shape by now. The next stage is determining the perfect brows for your face shape.

Round Face: If you have a round face, emphasizing the arch of the eyebrows will help give you a more narrow-faced appearance by drawing attention away from the width of your face. Your eyebrows should have a high arch and extend to the end of the cheekbone.

Steps To Help Your Eyelashes Grow Longer

Lots of women these days are more conscious about their eyes and doing everything possible to make them pop. One of the ways we have adapted is fixing artificial lashes also know as false lashes. What if I tell you that there's a way to groom your own lashes to growth? Oh yes.....there's a way out.

It is more practical and convenient to maintain your own natural eyelashes than to invest time and money in fake ones. Even if Nature has neglected them, you can still achieve the effect of long, curled lashes if you give them some proper care. I'm sure most of us have an eyelash brush or an old mascara wand somewhere in our makeup purses, this is the time to dig it out.
