Smoky Eyes for All Eye Shapes

No matter what your eye looks like, you can make a killer smoky eye that will be perfect for any night look, or for making a big statement in the daytime, too. I have heard people say "my eyes are too small to go smoky," but this will show you how to fix that. Cosmo has said it, and so it must be so.
Look for your eye type below, and then follow the steps on how to make a perfect smoky eye.
Asymmetrical Eyes
- Make your smaller eye look lifted and larger! Do this by making the darker shade higher towards your brow bone on the smaller or droopy eye.
- For liner, trying using a kohl pencil to line your lower lash line, working from the outer corner inward three-quarters of the way, then trace your waterline with a cream pencil, to open your eyes to help combat the heavy top color!
Close-Set Eyes
- You want to make your eyes look like they're a little bit farther apart. Start this effect by putting iridescent shimmering color in the inner corners of both eyes.
- Use a medium color shadow on the rest of the eyelid, and only use a deeper shade in the crease!
- Line only from where your lashes thicken, and only on the inner rims so as not to push your eyes downward.
Monolids
- Create depth by using a dark shadow applied in line with the curve of your eyeball.
- Start with a gray or bone color, then add a darker color from the outer corner, tapering it in as shown! Blend them with a medium shade.
- Line your top upper lash line thickly, and just swipe a waterproof liner along the bottom.
Wide Eyes
- Big eye lids means you can add a lot of color, so work with it!
- Use a medium to dark color from the lash line to crease and blend it. Then, add a browner to contour this into the crease to make it smoother and add some warmth.
Small Eyes
- Use light shades to keep your eyes looking wide!
- You won't use a dark color at all here; use a light shade from lashline to crease, then add a medium shade along the crease and outwards to elongate your eye.
- Use a nude waterproof eyeliner (especially on the bottom!!) to keep from closing off your eyes.
Almond Eyes
- Use a shimmery shade to make your eyes really pop!
- Then, use a bronzer to blend it out at the crease for the smoky look.
- Use the same shimmery shade along the lower lash line, too!
- Line the upper inner rim with black, and use a waterproof liner with a color similar to the shimmery shade on the bottom to draw more attention.

The Best Anal Sex Toys for Butt Beginners V.2
No matter what kind of sex you’re having, sex toys are here to enhance your pleasure. For anal sex toy play alone, there are dozens of varieties of sex toys and accessories! That’s where we come in. We’ll take you through all the fun things you can put in and around your backdoor. Plugs Butt plugs are used for a variety of things and can be enjoyed by anyone of any gender. Most commonly, they’re used to provide a feeling of fullness or to stretch the anus safely. Plugs feature a tapered shape and — because the anus doesn’t have a natural stop sign like the vagina does with the cervix — should always have a flared base. They come in different materials, like medical-grade silicone, glass, and stainless steel, often with cool designs or charms on the end that remain outside the body. “Stainless steel plugs can be a perfect way to incorporate temperature play into your booty exploration. Plugs also come in vibrating and nonvibrating options. If, for example, you want to feel like you’re getting your bum licked, you might try a rimming plug, like the b-Vibe Rimming Plug 2. Not only does it vibrate, but it also features rotating beads to stimulate the inside of the anus. Plugs can also be weighted, like the b-Vibe Snug Plug. Weighted plugs usually contain small stainless steel balls that subtlety shift around inside the plug to increase the overall feeling of fullness. My favourite starter plug is the Shimmy from Unbound. It features a flared base and a hook for easy removal. The size and shape are excellent for beginners. For folks with penises, some plugs come with cock and ball ring attachments for extra fun! Beads Anal beads consist of several balls or spheres connected, each typically increasing in size. People are mainly drawn to anal beads because of their shape. “Both inserting and removing anal beads will provide arousal to the sensitive nerve endings of the sphincter muscle. Anal beads are usually made in the same materials and offer many of the same features as butt plugs, but beads have one thing that plugs don’t have flexibility. On the stiffer end of things, there are the b-Vibe Triplet Anal Beads. They’re made of silicone, vibrate, and can be remotely controlled for easy play. Fun Factory offers something a little more bendy with their aptly named Bendy Beads. There are many glass and stainless steel options for anal beads, too. Similar to plugs — and most anal toys in this article — beads must have a flared or hooked base to keep them from getting lost or stuck inside your bum. Dildos Dildos can be used as-is during solo or partnered play or worn with a harness to perform a penetrative anal play on a partner. Although most dildos can be used for anal penetration — so long as they have a flared base or are long enough not to need one — some are made specifically for anal stimulation. Like plugs, dildos can be used to provide a feeling of fullness, for example, is moulded in the shape of the anal canal to do just that. And if you have prostate or P-spot, you can get a dildo shaped specifically for P-spot stimulation. (More on this below.) Tantus makes a famous midrange P-spot toy, but for something on the smaller, cheaper end, try the Avant D14 by Blush Novelties. Double-ended dildos and strapless strap-ons, like this one from Fun Factory, can also be used for anal play.
6 Common Mistakes You’re Probably Making While Conditioning Your Hair
Hair is probably the most important feature of our body. It frames the face and lets us achieve different looks by chopping it or styling it in many ways. Often, it happens that we have a hard time managing our hair, and it ends up looking dull and lifeless. If you have long and soft hair goals, and still seem to be unable to reach them, then you might be doing something that's not right. While shampooing your hair is important, following it with a conditioner is equally essential. Avoiding conditioner, or not using it properly, might be a factor in not having hair that looks healthy, shiny, and effortlessly beautiful. Here are the 6 common mistakes you're probably making while conditioning your hair: 1. Not Using A Conditioner. It is the most common mistake that you might be making when taking care of your hair. The shampoo is not enough for your hair, as it can make your hair rough and eventually prone to damage. A shampoo opens up the hair cuticles that must be allowed to close by using a hair conditioner afterward. A conditioner is responsible for locking in the moisture in your hair and making it tangle-free. Thus, it works in protecting and hydrating your hair. So next time, make sure you don't skip on your conditioner. 2. Don't Use Too Much Of It. It is recommended that you should use just a coin-sized amount of conditioner on your hair, depending on the thickness, of course. Using large amounts of conditioner at a time could make your hair look greasy and flat. It can also make your hair fragile over time, due to the product buildup. 3. Choose A Conditioner Suitable For Your Hair Type. Knowing your hair type and its requirements is the key to healthy hair. A conditioner usually moisturizes the hair and protects it's from dirt and pollution. So, choosing the right one for your hair becomes a prominent decision. If you have dry or curly hair, then you need a conditioner that is thick and deeply nourishing for your hair. It should also be your priority to use chemical-free products when it comes to your hair care. Clovia Botaniqa Anti-Hair Fall Conditioner has all the goodness of many natural ingredients, like jojoba oil, vitamin E, keratin, argan oil, and more. It helps you in keeping your hair frizz-free and strengthen it. 4. Match It To The Brand Of Your Shampoo. Don't even consider using a conditioner that is different from your shampoo brand. It may happen that you don't see effective results on your hair, even after using a conditioner. It is because the conditioner may not be as suitable for your hair as your shampoo is. A pair of shampoo and conditioner from the same brand, and the same range, can provide you impressive results, as their functions will complement each other's work. 5. Avoid Your Scalp While Applying It. Hair conditioners differ vastly from shampoos. They are meant for your hair and should not be used on the scalp. The texture of the conditioner is very creamy and thick, which can clog your hair follicles. Eventually, it will cause hair to fall and cause a greasy scalp. Make sure to apply conditioner only on the lengths and ends of your hair, avoiding the scalp. Rinse it thoroughly after a few minutes, and you'll have silky smooth hair. 6. Not Leaving It On For Long Enough. Yeah, that's a thing. It is necessary to massage the conditioner in your hair lengths so that it emulsifies and closes your hair cuticles. Just dabbing it on your hair and rinsing immediately after, is not going to give you good results. You have to leave it on for a few minutes after massaging it well, and then wash it off. A good hair day fills you up with so much confidence in yourself. You can do any hairstyle when your hair is healthy and bouncy. For this to happen, pay close attention to the mistakes that you could have been making unknowingly, while using a conditioner. Make sure to be very caring about hair as they need that gentle maintenance, and you will surely achieve your hair goals.
Why You Need A Niacinamide Serum? And How To Use It.
Niacinamide may not get as much attention as retinol and vitamin C, but it is a skincare powerhouse that deserves equal recognition. It is the definition of a multitasker, offering a host of distinct benefits that make it a good choice for a wide range of skin types and complexion issues. However, incorporating it into your current skincare routine might sound difficult. Is it OK to use niacinamide along with vitamin C and/or retinol? Is hyaluronic acid a viable alternative? We weigh in on everything you need to know about using niacinamide. What is niacinamide, exactly? Simply put, it's a B vitamin, one of two forms of vitamin B3, and it participates in a number of critical cellular operations in the skin. What benefits does it have for the skin? Buckle your seatbelts, because this is going to be a long list. Niacinamide is a fantastic treatment for acne-prone skin. Niacinamide reduces sebum production, which can help prevent acne and shine. The vitamin is also known for its anti-inflammatory qualities, which aid in the treatment of acne and other skin conditions such as eczema. Niacinamide helps to build the skin barrier, which is advantageous to people who have eczema or sensitive skin. It is also an efficient skin lightening agent, treating hyperpigmentation by blocking pigment transfer from pigment-producing cells known as melanocytes to skin cells on the surface where discoloration is visible. As if that wasn't enough, there's evidence that niacinamide can help to reduce wrinkling and photoaging by maintaining cell function and repairing DNA damage. To summarise, niacinamide has very few limitations. Is it OK to mix niacinamde and retinol? Yes! In fact, retinol and niacinamide are recommended together for faster effects. The soothing characteristics of niacinamide can also assist to alleviate the unpleasant side effects and irritation that usually accompany retinol's wrinkle-fighting effectiveness. Is it safe to combine with other ingredients? Yes, as a general rule, which is why it's found in many skincare products and is easy to incorporate into your present routine. Niacinamide is frequently coupled with salicylic acid, a beta-hydroxy acid typically found in acne products, due to its acne-fighting qualities. Combining niacinimadie's oil-removal properties with salicylic acid's ability to break down excess oil is an effective way to keep pores free and breakouts at bay. Niacinamide is an ideal choice for combining with alpha-hydroxy acids, which are chemical exfoliants that can cause skin irritation, due to its anti-inflammatory and skin barrier-strengthening effects. Because the AHAs exfoliate the dead skin cells that would otherwise make it impossible for the niacinamide to enter, combining them boosts the efficacy of the niacinamide. Finally, because niacinamide and hyaluronic acid can both help with dry skin, they are frequently mixed. What is the one thing that the jury is still out on? Vitamin C. Because vitamin C might inactivate niacinamide, the applications should be separated by 15 minutes. In truth, the two would have to be heated in order to interact negatively, and more and more cosmetics are combining the two in skin-brightening formulations. The bottom conclusion is that if you utilise a product that contains both vitamin C and niacinamide, it was most likely specifically designed to work together. If you're using two different products that include these chemicals, wait 15 minutes between applications or use one in the morning and the other in the evening. Should I use niacinamide? Sure, in a nutshell. One of the nicest aspects of niacinamide is not only the vast list of benefits it offers, but also how well it is tolerated, particularly by those with sensitive skin. This makes it an enticing choice for those whose skin is sensitive to more common acne or skin lightening agents like benzoyl peroxide or retinoids.

3 Cosmetic Treatments that Celebrities Love
Hollywood stars look picture perfect on the Red Carpet. They work hard to achieve that uber-glam look by having a healthy diet and fitness routine. But every now and then, they do get a little help from their dermatologist to refresh their timeless look. Here are the top 3 treatments that celebrities indulge in... Botox Botox is used to achieve a tight and shiny forehead, lift-up eyebrows that droop with age and get rid of the creases that occur on the outer corner of your eyes when you smile. Almost every celebrity facing the camera gets Botox at some time in their life. When this treatment is done in the correct way, with low doses, the face looks ageless. But when the dose is too much or wrongly placed, then our celebrities end up looking more botched up than beautiful! Lip Fillers Celebrities have lip fillers for two reasons. The young ones may feel insecure about thin lips and want to plump up their pout. While the older ones lose lip volume as they age and also develop whistler's lines or smoker's lines. Lip fillers are like art, or sculpture. Your dermatologist is responsible for creating a beautiful shape that looks natural and complements your facial proportions. Badly done lips are called a 'trout pout' or 'duck-bill lips' and there's nothing appealing about them. Skin Tightening Everyone of us including celebrities use anti-aging creams. But that isn't the true reason behind their tight skin. Celebrities indulge in skin tightening treatment such as Thermage, Ultherapy and Fraxel once a year. These are usually done when they are on vacation, to hide the down time. These skin tightening treatments can reverse several years of skin aging with just a single treatment session. The result is a lifted, firm and rejuvenated skin. If you wish to glam up your look consider speaking to your dermatologist about these treatment options.
Lip Anti-Aging 101 - Secrets to a Youthful Pout
Lips are frequently left out of anti-aging discussions. Volume loss and wrinkles around the mouth, are some of the first signs of ageing. Our lips undergo a number of significant changes as they age. Most lips lose volume and definition over time. But smokers, those with lighter skin, and those who spend a lot of time in the sun are more likely to have lines and wrinkles. Lines can also be exacerbated by those who purse their lips when speaking. So, if your current lip care routine consists of swiping lip balm on chapped lips, there's definitely more you can do to to make your lips look fresh and youthful.  Lip Anti-Aging Serums and Balms The newer lip balms deliver anti-aging ingredients and hydration right where you need it. Look for one that includes a retinol derivative, a potent ingredient known for increasing collagen production and fading dark spots. The issue is that retinol can be irritating when applied directly to the lips, so make sure to moisturise thoroughly afterwards. Ceramides, hyaluronic acid, peptides, antioxidants, and intense hydrators like coconut oil are other ingredients to look for to make lips appear fuller. Within a few days, your lips will gradually plump up. Lip balms containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which chemically exfoliate the top layer of skin to reveal a smoother, softer pout.  The simplest anti-aging lip hack, however, is to remember that the skin around your mouth should be treated in the same manner as the rest of your skin. Apply a nightly serum there as well if you're applying it elsewhere. If you're going to smear sunscreen on your lips, use a chapstick or lipstick with an SPF of at least 30. To prevent damage from daily UV light, the skin around the mouth should be protected every morning with sunscreen and topical antioxidants, just as it would be in other areas. In the evening, use retinol, growth factors, and peptides to repair your skin.  Peels and Lasers  A quick laser zap or a chemical peel can help treat fine lines and pigmentation around the lips that do not seem to improve with topical treatments. The lines form because the muscles around the mouth constrict, folding the overlying skin. Lasers and peels can be used in the office to improve skin tone and texture while also reducing the appearance of lines. Skin lightening ingredients such as kojic acid or hydroquinone derivatives are also excellent choices for lip lightening as well. Microneedling causes micro-injuries to the skin around the lips, stimulating collagen and elastic production. There is less downtime than with a laser or peel, and it is not melanin or pigment sensitive.  Lip Injectables Not all lip fillers are performed with the goal of creating Kylie Jenner lips. The lip's border, known as the "white roll," loses definition with age. Because you lost structure at the border, it is common for lipstick to bleed from the red part of your lip onto your skin. To restore volume and structure around the mouth, a filler is recommended. Over-treating the lip border can result in duck lips, but subtle treatments can help to distinguish the lip from the skin around the mouth.  Injections of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, such as Restylane, Juvederm, or the more subtle Volbella, can make the lips more defined and thus younger-looking without significantly changing their size. If you're more concerned about wrinkles and lines around your mouth, a few drops of Botox can also help soften and relax the muscles around your mouth. There is one small catch: you won't be able to purse your lips as much, and you may be unable to drink from a straw for a few months. If you can't give up your daily iced coffee, peels or lasers with your dermatologist may be a better wrinkle-fighting option for you. Source: Lip Anti-Aging 101 - Secrets to a Youthful Pout
3 Lifestyle Habits that can Cause Acne Breakouts
Your acne is coded in your genes and governed by your hormones. While these two factors are not in your control, your lifestyle which affects your skin equally, IS. Here are the most important lifestyle changes that you can make to reduce your acne breakouts... 1. Clean your mobile phone Your mobile phone is pressed against your cheeks while you chat away with friends.

Besides this your phone may have food residue from the time that you were eating and texting and dust from lying on dirty surfaces. If you have acne prone skin, make sure you sanitize the surface of your mobile phone at least once every day. 2. Wash your face less often If you have oily skin which is prone to breakouts, chances are that you are washing your face more than twice daily. That, coupled with acne treatment AHA toners, salicylic acid serums and retinol night creams can over dry your skin. This leads your skin to produce even more oil which in turn feeds acne causing bacteria. Wash your face maximum 3 times a day. Once in the morning when you wake up and shower, once before sleeping at night and an additional time after a workout or outdoor exposure. 3. Reduce your carb intake Refined carbs such as bread, pasta and fried food have a high glycemic index. They increase blood sugar and cause a spike in the hormone Insulin. High glycemic foods are very inflammatory for the body and also disturb your gut bacteria. This in turn disturbs your skin microbiome. Increase your intake of fresh vegetables and salads instead. These are loaded with antioxidants which help your skin in healing faster. If you have been struggling with acne breakouts for a while, getting a little help from your dermatologist could go a long way in getting rid of your acne.

Why Do I Have Acne?
Acne is a skin condition that affects the oil glands and hair follicles. The pores in your skin are linked to glands that produce an oily substance called sebum. The glands and your pores are linked by a canal called the follicle, which contains thin hair that grows to the skin's surface. When sebum and dead skin cells combine, they form a plug in the follicle. The bacteria in the plug causes inflammation, which results in red inflamed acne and furthermore, acne scars What is the underlying cause of acne? Despite the fact that the exact cause of acne has yet to be determined. However, there are some things that can cause or worsen acne, such as: 1. Hormonal changes such as puberty, menstruation, and pregnancy can all cause acne. 2. Squeezing or picking at existing pimples 3. Excessive cleaning or scrubbing of the skin 4.

How to make soy candles?
08 Steps to Making Soy Candles: Beginner's Guide Making candles has been a popular hobby for centuries. From how to make candles, how to get started making candles, and how to use candle waxes, we’ve got you covered! In this blog post we will discuss how to make soy candles. Soy is a healthier alternative than paraffin or beeswax because it burns cleaner and leaves less soot behind. It also doesn't produce an odor while burning. The process of making soy candles isn't difficult - here are the 08 steps involved: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lz9c4SbjwmM Step One: Get the Right Supplies Before you begin making your soy candles, be sure to have all of your supplies ready. You will need a few household items that most people already have lying around their house. These include an old pot or saucepan for melting wax, measuring cups and spoons, spoon stirrers (wooden chopsticks or lollipop sticks work great), a wick for each candle you plan to make, and of course the wax itself. You will also need a heat source - either an electric stove top burner or hot plate, or a camp stove outside if it is warm enough. If using an outdoor area like your backyard, be sure that there is no grass or plants getting in the way of your wax.

6 Easy Ways To A Smooth Neck
Because the skin on your neck is some of the thinnest on your body, it is also one of the first places to show signs of ageing. Here are six ways to make your neck look younger and address everything from sun damage to sagging on this delicate area. 1. WEAR SUNSCREEN EVERY SINGLE DAY. Your dermatologist will agree that a nickel-sized amount of sunscreen applied to your neck and chest every day will help prevent collagen breakdown and the formation of sunspots. Don't forget to massage the sides and back of your neck. 2. MAINTAIN YOUR SKIN'S MOISTURIZATION. Again, the skin on your neck is thinner and has fewer oil glands than the rest of your body, so keeping the area hydrated is essential for a smoother overall texture. Look for peptide-containing creams (which can help stimulate new collagen growth) and apply them in gentle, upward strokes from your chest to your jawline. 3. RECLAIM YOUR BEAUTY SLEEP. Do you always wake up with pillow lines on the side of your neck? Apply one of these silicone patches before going to bed to keep your skin from crinkling while you sleep. You'll wake up with a smoother neck and less chance of further damage. 4. FOCUS ON CORRECT POSTURE. The amount of time we spend looking down at our phones and screens has resulted in what we now refer to as "tech neck." The simplest solution would be to limit screen time entirely, but more realistically, you should keep everything as close to eye level as possible to avoid unnecessary wrinkling. 5. GIVE LASER TREATMENTS A GO AHEAD. Still have fine lines on your neck? Fraxel lasers, stimulate your body's natural repair process to promote collagen growth. Fraxel can also be used to treat any dark spots or broken capillaries in the area, giving you a more even complexion. 6. ULTRASOUND TREATMENT FOR SERIOUS REPAIR.

The FDA-approved treatment uses heat generated by focused sonic waves to penetrate deeper into the skin and stimulate the production of new collagen. Take note that the effect is gradual, and most patients notice a lifting effect three to six months after the initial treatment, so be patient.
