New Year’s Eve Hair and Makeup Ideas !!!

Try these gorgeous ideas for a bold, sophisticated look at your New Year's Eve celebration.

Effortlessly :

Paired with a strappy dress and dangling earrings, a loosely tousled French twist has that devil-may-care Bardot allure. And there’s no pressure to be perfect: The less done it looks, the more captivating it becomes.

How-to: Prep damp hair with texturizing spray to give it body, says Mancuso. Then, for a tousled look, blow-dry hair using fingers rather than a brush. Work a pouf of mousse through hair to make it pliable. Now gather hair at the nape and twist upward. Use bobby pins sparingly to anchor hair to the scalp loosely.

Beauty note: Highlight cheeks and lips with the same cream-based color. Try Mary Kay cream blush in Sheer Bliss.

Cool and Classic

A short, choppy crop takes an exquisite turn when you smooth it back and add a pair of striking yet simple earrings. The effect is especially chic against a bare neckline.

How-to: Don’t assume that you have to forgo the look of an up do just because you have short hair. You can achieve the same result by simply slicking hair back into a pretty shape. You’ll need “all the hold you can get,” says Mancuso, to ensure that little pieces don’t stick out. To start, spritz a root-boosting spray onto dry hair to give it strength and malleability. Once the spray dries, tease the crown area, then smooth hair gently back and fold it into place with a paddle brush. Finish with heavy-duty hair spray.

Beauty note: Pink lipstick complements a feminine hairstyle.

New Romantic

Even chin-length hair can be worn up in a feminine, face-framing braid. Paired with a matching set of necklace and earrings that look plucked from Grandma’s jewelry box, this casually plaited style delivers old-world charm to a conservative long-sleeve dress.

How-to: Shortest hair can be elaborately styled and with minimal effort. Start by prepping dry hair all over with texture spray. Next, braid three narrow sections from one side of the forehead to the opposite end and secure at the temple with bobby pins. Hold the remaining hair back with bobby pins, or gather it into a small ponytail if the hair is long enough.

Beauty note: Brows enhance the look. Define them with brow powder.

Modern Glamour

Gorgeous, bouncy waves that skim the shoulders are just as show stopping as a dressy up do but less involved.

How-to: Begin by blow-drying naturally curvy or wavy damp hair with a paddle brush. In the last few minutes of drying, switch to a comb to pull out any kinks. Then create a deep side part. For a smooth but not overly straightened finish, run a flatiron through just the front portion of hair. Mist with hair spray.

Beauty note: A sophisticated hairstyle demands a classic red lipstick.

REMEMBER >: Less done =More captivating (so don't over do).

    2. Keep the split ends trimmed and treat them carefully.
    3. Good conditioners make a lot of difference.
    4. Use apple cider vinegar the same way as you use a conditioner at least twice a week for the shine boost.
    5. Using the homemade hair masks at least once in a week can work wonders for your hair, by controlling the hair fall and making it healthy and shiny.
    Olive Oil Hair Mask: Massage a olive oil into the hair and scalp. Use a wide-toothed comb to spread evenly. Cover hair with a shower cap for 15-20 minutes, then rinse well. Shampoo as usual.

    Honey and Egg Yolk Hair Mask: Mix well 1 tbsp. honey, 1 tbsp. olive oil and 1 egg yolk. Apply to hair, spread evenly with a wide toothed comb, cover with shower cap and leave on for 30 minutes. Rinse and shampoo as usual.

    Oatmeal and Almond oil Hair Mask: Mix well 1 tbsp. oatmeal powder, 1 tbsp. milk and 1 tbsp. almond oil to make a paste. Apply this to hair and leave for at least 15 minutes by covering with a shower cap. Rinse with water and use mild shampoo.

    If you’ve been bored leaving your hair down every single day or wearing the same drab hair style with not much change, worry not. We show you ways in which to make some amazing hairstyles that you can make every day – and these aren’t time-taking too!
    1. Sleek Ponytail : It is classy, chic and easy-to-make. It is especially perfect for work wear as it can stay put through the whole day.
     How to get a sleek ponytail : Straighten your hair such that it is sleek and soft and tie it up into a pony – high or low, the way you like it. It’s that simple!
    2. The Side Braid : Braiding up our hair is something that we’ve done all through our schooling and hence, it is an easy hairstyle to make for most of us. It can look good with any outfit and can make you look dressy effortlessly. All you have to do is make it side-swept so that it is a tad bit different and prettier than the normal braid.
    How to get a side braid : All you have to do is braid your hair (in regular, French or fishtail style), starting the braiding from the lower left or right end of your scalp.
    3. The Puff Ponytail : If you have no time to straighten your hair or add curls or just do anything with it except tie it up into a pony, there’s still a way to make it look elegant and that is ‘puffing it up’.

    How to get a puff ponytail : It is the simplest thing you can imagine. Tie your hair (yes, even the messy hair that you just woke up with) into a ponytail. But before you do that, comb out a little bit of the frontal part of your hair and make it stand out with the help of bobby pins.
    4.Half Up and Half Down Hairstyle : Yet another hairstyle that helps us transform the boring and dreary hair into a dressy up do is the half up and half down hairstyle. Instead of leaving all your hair loose. Pull half of it up and make a knot or a braid or a pony out of it leaving the other half down. It is easy to make and can go with most outfits. And yes, it is one of those hairstyles that most celebs seem to be going for lately.
    5.Add a Hair Band : Instead of leaving your hair down like every other day, glam it up a little bit by slipping on a hair band onto the hair.

    How to add the hair band : Choosing the right hair band and placing it in on your hair is all it takes. See to it that the frontal part of your hair is puffed up a little bit so that it adds a certain chic-ness to it.

    Homemade Salon Style Facial .

    Facial For Glowing Skin 

    Facial helps you cleanse, exfoliate, nourish and rejuvenate your skin and reveals the fresh, glowing, flawless and youthful layers of skin. Salon facials are quite expensive and most of them go ineffective. The products come with strong chemicals and slowly damage the skin ageing it faster than your actual age. Natural facials are the best option, which you can repeat even once or twice every week.

    Usually facials involve 5-6 steps. Let us see how to do a salon style facial at home step-by-step:
    Use a deep clean facial cleanser like the one from neutrogena to cleanse the face and neck. Massage the cleanser on wet skin for few minutes to remove the impurities and clear the pores. Pat dry with a clean face cloth.

    Use rose water (Dabur gulab jal) to tone the skin. Wet a cotton ball with a little rose water and wipe the face and neck. Rose water soothes the skin and maintains the pH balance.

    Fill a bowl with 3/4th water and bring it to a boil. Remove from the stove and steam your face and neck for 10-15 minutes by covering your head with a towel. This will open the pores and loosens the dead cells and stubborn dirt.

    Now your pores are open and the dirt or dead cells are loosened, it is easy for you to exfoliate more effectively. Use baking soda or powdered sugar mixed with water or honey to exfoliate the skin. Remember to be as gentle as possible, since the skin will be a little sensitive due to steaming. Rub in circular motions on the face and neck concentrating on T-zone for 1-2 minutes very gently and carefully. Rinse well and pat dry.

    It is the most important step of your facial. Use a moisturizer enriched with vitamin-E to massage your skin. Start from the neck and move towards your face by gentle upward strokes. Your finger strokes should be enough to stimulate blood circulation. Use circular movements from your chin towards the lower part of ears. Use gentle circular movements using ring finger around the eyes. Use up and down movements on your nose. Massage for 10-15 minutes very gently on every area of the skin on your face, neck and ears. Wet your hands with cold milk or rose water in between while you massage to smoothly glide your fingers. After massaging, wipe the skin with a clean wet face cloth.

    Face mask:
    Take a few chunks of apple, papaya and banana in a small bowl. Blend them in a mixer to make a smooth paste. Mix this with 2 tbsp of rice flour. Add little water if required. Apply this mask over clean face and neck after massaging. Leave for 15-20 minutes. Rinse well and pat dry.

    Ice cube:Now rub an ice cube over the face and neck to close the pores. This is important to keep the skin fresh and glowing.

    Apply a moisturizing serum over the skin and massage gently.

    Must apply a apply sunblock to protect your skin from UV rays ,must after a facial if you are going out.

    Papaya Skin Brightening Face Mask !

    Face Mask Using Raw Papaya :\:

    Several factors make the skin dull and cause blemishes which should be regularly treated to keep the skin healthy and radiant. Here is a powerful face mask using raw papaya, yogurt and honey to brighten up the skin by gently exfoliating the dead layers of the skin. This face mask stimulates blood circulation and makes the skin surface radiantly glowing.

    How to prepare:                                                  

    1/2 cup raw or semi ripe papaya (peeled and chopped)
    2 tbsp. plain yogurt or thick curd
    2 tbsp honey
    Blend the papaya pieces to make into a smooth paste. Mix well with yogurt and the honey. Apply this paste over a clean face and neck. Leave for 15 minutes and rinse. Left over face mask can be stored for later use.


    In this face mask we use unripe papaya. It contains natural alpha-hydroxy acids and the levels of papain, an enzyme that dissolves dead skin cells, is in huge amounts when compared to ripe papaya. This makes it a very powerful ingredient in many cosmetics to brighten up the skin. In case you have a sensitive skin, you should use ripe papaya or semi ripe one, instead of raw papaya. Raw papaya gives you mild exfoliation.
    On the other hand yogurt or curd also contains aplha-hydroxy acids and acts as a catalyst to improve the action of papaya on skin, while making it softer and fresher. Honey is a great humectant and keeps the skin hydrated.

    USAGE :

    The face mask gives a slight tingling sensation which is common. This face mask should be used 1-2 times a week.

    The best possible use that Aloe Vera has on your hair is it’s hydrating property. If you’re one of those people with an extremely dry and rough hair, using Aloe Vera extract for your hair can help prevent the dryness and thereby other problems that come along with dryness such as hair fall and dandruff.

    Solution to Dry, Flaky and Brittle Nails.

    Hot Oil Manicure :

    I love nail art and this small sentence does no justice to explain my passion for it but keeping nails healthy and nourished is of prime importance. And no nail art or expensive polish will look good, if your nails and cuticles do not support them. Before asking the nail art or the fancy polish to make you nails look gorgeous , please ask your self did you do enough for your nails????
    Hot Oil manicure ?

    It is a luxurious and relaxing treatment for pampering your hands. It is best suited for dry and ribbed nails, damaged cuticles and brittle flaky nails.
    However  my regular readers would know that I never endorse expensive products or difficult treatments. I am more of a researcher who comes up with Do It Yourself substitutes. So, here is a DIY Hot Oil Manicure that everyone can easily do sitting at home .

    How to do ??                                                     

    Some of the oils used for this are Vitamin E oil, Olive Oil, Sunflower Oil, Castor Oil mixed with lower density oil, Almond Oil etc. All you have to do is warm the oil for a 30 sec or so in the microwave. The oil should not be too hot and bearable
    The reason of using warm the oil is that the density of the oil decreases (so oil thins down) when we heat them, hence they can now easily penetrate into the skin.
    Now, dip your hands in the warm oil till the oil cools off. If you enjoyed this, do not hesitate in reheating the oil again for like a 20 sec and repeating it .
    Take out your hands from the oil and massage your hands and wrist. Pay special attention to the cuticle, nail bed and nail edges.
    Keep in mind that you are feeding the thirsty nails and hands with real good food. So don’t stop too soon.
    Wash your hands with plain water after some massage and wipe them.
    You can do the regular pushing your cuticles and removing the dead skin as well. If you wish you can proceed with nail paint application step of the manicure after getting rid of the oiliness from your nails.

    I would suggest this as a before bed ritual so that you are touching around things interrupting the healing process.

    I hope you enjoyed this post and would use this to pamper your nails and hands.

    NAILS CARE !!!

    To take care of your nails, #

    Most of us usually just rub on a little cuticle oil, take a break from polish, and hope for the best. But, like our faces and hair, nails need targeted TLC to keep them, well, on point. And companies are starting to take note. So, step away from the acetone soak, move back from the acrylics, and check below tips for more...

    Gentle WipesFrom a healthy nails perspective, these non-acetone soaked pads are better than regular remover, thanks to Argan oil, which works as a cuticle oil to soften frayed skin. “Sure, it’s going to take a few passes to get all the polish off, but rather than wrecking your nails, you’re hydrating them.”

    Oil“Cuticles are your nails' seal to the world,”they keep the bad out and the good in. If they’re healthy, nutrients are sealed in, and a strong nail will grow.” The antifungal, antiseptic, and antiparasitic properties of this neem-based oil help the cuticle do its job, while chamomile and lavender soothe inflammation, redness, or infection. Use it nightly to help your nails get their Rapunzel on.

    PrimerA regular basecoat keeps your nails from yellowing and helps polish stay put — and often that’s about it. This creamy nude, on the other hand, evens out bumps and ridges, and makes your nails look so healthy that even if you have a polish color picked out, you’ll probably reconsider putting anything on top.

    15) Meat: Turkey meat ( white preferrably) or any lean protein source is a good belly blasting food. This includes the wild, salmon, free-range chicken, whey protein powders, and especially grass-fed beef because it contains natural CLA – a fat that studies have actually shown to burn fat. The interesting thing about protein is your body will burn off as much as 30% of its calories after you eat it.

    How to Even Out Skin Complexion !!

    Many people have problems with their complexion. Whether it be uneven color, texture, or wrinkles, getting a smooth skin tone is easy. Just by following these simple steps...

    Apply sunscreen regularly. Sun damage is one of the top causes of an uneven skin tone, so protect yourself by using a minimum SPF15 on a daily basis.
    • Avoid tanning beds and laying out in the sun for hours whenever possible, as these are incredibly dangerous due to their carcinogenic properties.
    • Although SPF 15 is the minimum level of sun protection, to really save your skin apply at least an SPF 30.
    Exfoliate your skin. Dead skin cells build up over time on your skin’s surface, giving it the appearance of old age or dryness. Slough off those dead skin cells to give your skin a revitalized appearance.

    Apply a face mask. These help to reduce redness and even out the color and texture of your skin.

    Use a face peel. Face peels are a type of mask or gel you apply to your face that use healthy acids to dissolve dead skin cells. These remove the top layer of the skin which appears dull or has discoloration or scarring.

    Apply a concealer. Concealer is a liquid or cream that blends with your skin to hide dark or red spots and under-eye circles. It is great for giving an even color to your skin.

    It can be really confusing to know what to do to get amazing skin, there's a lot of different suggestions, advice, products and recommends around.

    Here are some tips to help prevent breakouts and clear them up as fast as possible:
    • Wash your face twice a day (no more) with warm water and a mild soap made for people with acne. Gently massage your face with circular motions. Don't scrub. Overwashing and scrubbing can cause skin to become irritated. After cleansing, the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends applying an over-the-counter (no prescription needed) lotion containing benzoyl peroxide.
    • Don't pop pimples. It's tempting, but here's why you shouldn't: Popping pimples can push infected material further into the skin, leading to more swelling and redness, and even scarring. If you notice a pimple coming before a big event, like the prom, a dermatologist can often treat it for you with less risk of scarring or infection.
    • Avoid touching your face with your fingers or leaning your face on objects that collect sebum and skin residue like your phone. Touching your face can spread the bacteria that cause pores to become inflamed and irritated. To keep bacteria at bay, wash your hands before applying anything to your face, such as treatment creams or makeup.
    • If you wear glasses or sunglasses, make sure you clean them frequently to keep oil from clogging the pores around your eyes and nose.
    • If you get acne on your body, try not to wear tight clothes. They don't allow skin to breathe and may cause irritation. Scarves, headbands, and caps can collect dirt and oil, too.
    • Remove your makeup before you go to sleep. When buying makeup, make sure you choose brands that say "noncomedogenic" or "nonacnegenic" on the label. Throw away old makeup that smells or looks different from when you first bought it.
    • Keep hair clean and out of your face to prevent additional dirt and oil from clogging your pores.
