    Clever but not necessarily heavy eye makeup can improve the look of your bespectacled features, compensate for thick lenses and make sure your eyes aren’t overshadowed by showy frames.
    Eyeshadow:Lenses for short sight (myopia) are usually thinner in the centre and thicker around the edges, making the eyes look smaller and rounder. To counteract this, you need a positive touch-use two or three toning shades of eye shadow to add depth, don’t always stick to shades that match the color of your iris. Dark brown eyes, for instance, can look sultrier with deep green or blue shadows for shadowing, teamed with lighter, brighter, blue, green, silver or turquoise shadows used as lid highlighters. Gleamy eye shadows help emphasize small eyes. The long sighted (hypermetropia) lenses are thicker at the centre and thinner at the sides, making the eyes look bigger. Go in for subtle rather than striking shadows, and if you have large lids, avoid shades that are too shiny and bright. Take the middle road and pick dusty blues, mossy greens and soft browns.
    Eye-liners: Eye-lining is also important to myopic eyes. The eyeliner should be definite, extending up and out at the outer corners of the eye, but never inside the rim of the lower lashes, since this can ‘close’ the eyes. Long sighted women can use just a suggestion of eyeliner following the natural line of the lashes. If you just aim to touch your pencil liner to the roots of the lashes and blend in, you’ll have the right kind of look.
    Mascara: Mascara adds a definition to bespectacled eyes. Short sighted people, or anyone who wants to play up rather than play down their eyes will prefer the lash-lengthening variety for a more wide-eyed look.
    Lipstick: Lipstick is very important to balance things out. Tone your lipsticks to your frames wherever possible. Brown and berry shades look good.
    Hair style: Fluffy curls look out of place with business-lady horn rims. Heavy fringes, of course are disastrous with any kind of specs! Upswept hairstyles do most justice to attractive glasses and give a more uncluttered line to the neck and face.
    Accessories: A woman wearing glasses must remember to wear small and delicate ear ornaments. Thin loops or rings, small studs or starts are nice. But heavy dangling earrings don’t go well with spectacles. Try and balance your spectacles with something nice around your neck. A strand of pearls is perfect. A thick short gold cord or a heavy pendant with a delicate gold strand too is very elegant.

    Make-up that matters

    Hi friends,,,

    Hope this will help you to do your karwa chauth make up....


    With the festive season just days away, brush up your make-up skills to get those heads turning. Nothing complements a beautiful dress as perfectly as a well made-up face. Here are some tips




    Getting the make-up right is essential. At the same time, it is important to ensure that you use the right products to avoid any damage to your skin.

    Make-up timeline

    To ensure your eyes stay healthy and free of infection when using make-up, heed the following expiry date rules. Throw out your mascara after three months, powder eyeshadows every nine to 18 months, and cream eyeshadows every six to 12 months. Sharpen your eyeliners often to keep them clean.

    Mascara mistakes

    To avoid mascara flake-off or smudging on your face, apply a thin coat of mascara to the top lashes only. Then run an eyelash brush through the lashes to prevent clumpy mascara build-up.

    Get a rosy glow

    Want your face to give off a healthy glow? Try using a gel blush or cream in a rosy shade of pink to create a natural look. Gels or creams are more transparent and blend smoothly. Rub it on the apples of your cheek and blend up towards the eye for a glowing complexion.

    Minute manicure

    Need a fast fix for unpolished nails? File nails into a square shape, buff them to create a bit of shine and apply a clear coat of polish. Next, rub in cuticle oil around the edges of the nail and moisturise your whole hand. It takes less than 15 minutes and will give your nails a polished look.

    Brow etiquette

    The trend in eyebrows for this season is natural looking, not sparse and skinny. Use a tinted brow definer or eyeshadow to fill in scanty brows.

    Fix tired feet

    Pamper your tired feet with a luxurious footbath. Fill a basin with warm water and add a few drops of essential oil. Run your toes and soles of your feet over the marbles, and relax for 15 minutes.

    Eyeliner hint

    Women with deep-set eyes should use liquid liner instead of regular pencil eyeliner, to prevent smudging in the crease of the lid. Liquid liner does not smudge as easily.

    Foundation tester

    When picking out a concealer or foundation, always test the colour on the inside of your wrist. The skin there is the most unblemished and will give you a good idea of how it will look on your face.

    Extend your foundation

    Mix a drop of foundation with moisturiser to create a luminescent look for your skin.

    Foundation secret

    Apply foundation to your face after you have done your eye make-up. This helps you to fix any last-minute smudging
    from mascara or eyeliner under the eyes.

    Lipstick trick

    Love matte lipstick, but feel your dry lips wreck the look? Apply a lip balm to lips before starting your make-up routine. By the time you have done your eyes and rest of the face, your lips will be moisturised and ready for the matte lipstick.

    Manicure tip

    If you have been sloppy applying nail polish, simply soak nails (when dry) in warm water for a few minutes and then rub off extra nail polish gently with a finger. :thumbsup
