Tired of giving excuses about your tanned skin to friends and relatives? The harsh sun rays are taking away all the charm and glow of your skin making it essential to shield your skin. In summers, skin becomes scruffy and loses all its moisture which paves the way to tanning, pre-aging and brown spots. Following are some of the refreshing advices to keep your skim plump and healthy.

  • Scrub the tattered skin out

To get that desired gleam in your skin the most important thing is to scrub the dead skin and cleanse the pores which lead to black heads. Although there are many scrubs available in market but its best to avoid chemical and exfoliate the impurities out of your skin with the natural way right from your kitchen cabinets.

  • For those having normal to dry skin applying oats pack can be very useful. Mix spoonful of oats and curd and then apply this pack on face. After the pack gets dry rub the pack with few drops of water and then wash it off. Your skin will not only be deeply cleaned but also moisturized, de-tanned and rejuvenated.

  • Wearing a sleeveless and a wide neck shirt in summer can lead to embarrassment because of the patchy skin which is an unwanted gift by the sun. Bequest your body with this scrub pack which can be easily made at home. Take a spoon of red lentils (masoor), spilt dehusked black gram lentils (dhuli urad) and rice. Soak the three in raw milk for 1-2 hours and then grind it. Add honey, few drops of lemon and rose water in the mixture and you can apply this pack on your face as well as body. After leaving it for few minutes gently rub your skin with few drops of water and then finally wash it off.

You can pat your skin with rose water frequently to keep the pores closed and your skin enlivened.
  • Sun Protection

Avoid going out in this rising temperature especially between 11am to 4pm. Remember whenever you go out apply a sun screen 15 minutes prior to your date with sun. Your sunscreen has to be of SPF 40 and above protecting you from UVA and UVB. In case you forget to apply sunscreen, after coming back immediately massage a slice of tomato on your skin. This will not only invigorate your skin with vitamins A, C, E, K and B6 but will cool down your sunburns. With regular use you can also reduce acne scars and its appearance. 

  • Keep an eye on what you drink and eat

Perfect eye liner (hacks and designs)


Indian Bloggers

Looking at all those Cosmo magazines and those Oh So perfect models! One can’t miss out those eyes

Staring back at you with their perfect eye liners. The sultry eyes, flawless cat eyes, Scotch tape stencils to those near perfect Almond eyes. Here we share a few tricks and techniques so you too can get those flawless eyes:

Monolid eyes:

 Perfect eye liner

Start off with a thin line at the inner corner, when lining your top lash line make a thick arch. So when you open your eyes you would have that perfect size line. We recommend using liquid or a gel liner.

Almond eyes:

 Perfect eye liner

It is advised to follow the natural curve of your eyelids. Increase the thickness of the eye liner as you move towards the outer corner of your eye. Almond shaped eyes are perfect for winged eye liner.

Downturned eyes:

 Perfect eye liner

Downturned eyes are like Almond shaped, but only with a little downward tilt at the outer corners. To give it a more balanced or symmetrical look, opt for cat eyes or wing tips. Make sure you move upwards as you approach the outer corner of your eyes. Make it thin, with subtle wings and a dot of highlighter.

Round eyes:

 Perfect eye liner

Line the outer edges of your lash line to make your eyes look a little longer. Alternately, you can choose long winged liner look. It is best advised to apply liquid liner on your upper lash line, at the inner corner from where your iris starts, all the way to the outer corner. Remember, it’s all about that elongated wide eyed look.

Hooded eyes:

 Perfect eye liner

Are due to the folding over of the lid, which causes your eyes to look smaller. You would want to make your eyes look bigger with eye liner, start by applying thick liner at the outer corner of your eye, towards the lash base, continue the same between the roots of your lashes. We recommend using dark gel or pencil liner.

Close-set eyes:

 Perfect eye liner

With close set eyes, it is best to focus on the outer corners of your eyes. Using a soft eye pencil, apply a thin line at the inner corner and make it thicker at the outer corner, taking the line a bit longer than your lash line. Make sure it’s at its thinnest in the inner corner near the tear duct, as this emphasizes the closeness of your eyes.

Wide-set eyes:

 Perfect eye liner

With wide-set eyes, you want to focus on the inner corners of your eyes, to make your eyes seem closer together. Start the line by your tear duct, and avoid extending it past the outer corner of your eye, extending or thickening the end will only draw your eyes further apart. Smudge pencil lengthwise at the bottom for a night-outlook.

Protruding eyes:

Perfect eye liner

In order to push back the lid space, we recommend applying a thick liner on the top lash line. To get that balance apply shadow to the bottom lash line and then add liner.

Bold is beautiful

Remember that girl next door? Don’t traumatize others by being just a boring simple girl whom everybody misses out to notice. Rather be a virtue to girl power by being bold.

Turn your Lips into bomb:

Bold is beautiful

Lips express a lot about you even without letting your tongue make a move. So why not dress up your pout with bold colours as that of sexy red, juicy orange or bright fuchsia. Don’t act reticent by applying those natural and lighter shades rather gravitate into darker colours and leave your lips super pigmented. What you further need is a lipstick that is creamy, hydrating and has a little bit of shine. There is a misconception of applying a matching lip liner as that of lipstick. Please don’t do that sin while choosing these shades rather define your lips with the liner matching you lips. If you have thin lips then choose brighter shades instead the darker ones. Keep the rest of make-up minimal with the gaudy pout so that you don’t end up looking like a clown. Soft lids and bright lips are always a winner.

In your Eyes only:

The Eye liner

Bid adieu to using only black eye liner. Experimentation is fun and don’t hesitate in using the turquoise blue, aqua green or the colour you have been drooling in. They look so pretty and flattering making make-up cool and easy. You just need to select the right colour which compliments your eye colour. If you want a steady control you can choose a pencil liner over liquid or gel ones. To avoid looking kiddish with the coloured liners, your liner should be intact with the lash line and should be cleanly applied. Further complete this look by applying a subdued lip colour and look gorgeous even at daytime. 

Dramatic Eye shadow

Bold is beautiful

For getting that celebrity look, what your make-up bag must have is a bright eye shadow. So girls step out of the comfort zone and try purple, pink, green, peach and other vibrant colours and pop up your lid. Complement this look with the matching blush and highlight your eyes further with black liner and mascara.

The Rock star Girl look

Bold is beautiful

The hypnotizing eyes along with unfearing bright red lip colour can be killer. Be audacious and try the cat eye look by stretching your eye liner towards the outer corner of the eye making a cone. You can apply a thick line of glossy black eye liner or a fine line doing the job, these moderately bold eyes are ready to go with anywhere. Just be cautious that the liner hugs tightly with the lash line and there is no skin peeping in between.

Smokey seductive eyes are very much in vogue so go on smudge kohl eye liner on your lashes and also on the bottom line and further oomph the effect by picking fuchsia pink Popsicle for lips.

So go on girls be chic and cheerful and don’t let anyone overlook you.
