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).





The Correct Way to Moisturize Your Face !

There really is a right way—and a wrong way. 

Apparently we've all been moisturizing our faces wrong. Think that you can just slap it on in circular motions and be on your way? We did too, but it turns out that's not how you reap the maximum benefits of whatever gorgeous treat you indulging your face in. Curious? We thought so... so check it out below.

Here's a play by play:

1. Dispense a quarter sized amount of product into your palm.
2. Apply using your fingertips.
3. Start at your chin and use upward strokes to blend in your moisturizer.
4. Lightly tap under your eyes to circulate the blood and even out skin tone.

And there you have it—consider your lives changed!

    Tips For Winter Hair Care !!

    With the arrival of winter all skin and hair problems start worrying you. Dry and brittle hair, dandruff, hair fall, hair damage are common during winters. Yet the remedies are handy to protect the lustrous locks. Yet Beauty&Fashion Merge brings you most effective homemade tips for winter hair.

    Tips to protect your hair:
    1. After a continuous use, your hair care regimen loses their effectiveness. Your hair gets too accustomed to your regular hair care regimen and gets desensitized to the active ingredients needed for keeping it protected. So it is a good idea to break up your hair routine every few weeks by using an alternate shampoo and conditioner for a day or two. This really can make a huge difference on how your hair looks and feels, and you can fall in love with your favorite products all over again.
    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.

    Hairstyles To Try Out Every day !

    Simple Hairstyles !!

    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.
