The best part of using these masks is that they are inexpensive can easily be made using simple materials found in most households. And since these masks are made of natural materials, they won’t damage your skin like other cosmetic products that you find in the market. Additionally, try to get some Mineral Makeup for yourself to save your skin from further harm. So, without further ado, here is our list of DIY masks for your skin.

1. Papaya Honey Mask
This is a simple, relatively easy mask to make. Just take a few cubes of papaya and add a few drops of honey on them. After mashing and mixing it thoroughly, the mask should be ready. Apply it to your face and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. After this period of time, rinse it off using warm water and then splash your face with cold water. Do this twice a week for the summer season. The papaya has anti-aging and spot removal properties. It will leave your skin feeling younger and clearer.

2. Gelatin Mask
If you have a problem with blackheads or whiteheads, this is just the remedy you need. And it is easy to make. All you have to do is take a tablespoon of Gelatin and add a tablespoon of milk to that. Heat this mixture in the microwave for ten seconds. Once that is done, spread this mask evenly on your whole face. Let this sit for 15 minutes. When the mask has dried, slowly peel it off. Be extra careful around the eyes. As you peel the mask off, the gelatin will cause the blackheads on your face to be removed as well. Using this mask will leave your skin bare and free of acne and blackheads. However, here’s a pro tip – after you peel the mask off, wash your face with warm and then cold water. Later add a few drops of a good toner (or apple cider vinegar if you want something natural) to a piece of cotton and rub it all over your face. This will close the pores of your face and prevent the formation of new blackheads. This mask is a natural remedy and is used to improve the condition of your skin.

Steps To Make Your Mascara Looks Perfect

Eyes are the most riveting facial features. Expressive eyes can speak and mesmerize the beholder. With a lot riding on how your eyes appear, it is important that you learn of the ideal way to apply mascara. It really does not take a lot of time. But, it can transform you in minutes and fetch you a ravishing look, which in combination with other make-up, minimal or heavy, can turn you into a stunner. Let us draw closer to the methods of applying that will get you those double takes.

Curl those long lashes for the best impact

Celebrity photographs and all close up glamour pics will tell you a story. Eyelashes need to be curled for greater impact. So, get those curlers out and curl your lashes nicely. Ideally, the curling needs to be one twice. Once, before you actually apply the mascara and the other after you apply the mascara. The curling after the application is for added effect. Depending on how intense your look needs to be, you can opt for curling those lashes twice or once.

Getting the right coat

Quite obviously, you are coating from the roots and moving to the tips. However, you may be just running the wand from the roots to tips. However, the best way to do it is to apply it from the roots to the tips with a deliberate slight zig zag motion. The zig zag motion should be slight, and intended to deposit more mascara at the base and thin out as you near the tip. And, do not forget to get the mascara on the wand in correct volumes. Do not excessively pump it, you may end up getting lumps of mascara.

Take out the excessive mascara that forms in lumps

If there are no lumps after you have applied the mascara, it means that you are either an experienced hand, or you have not applied sufficient volume. Eyelashes that stick together after application of mascara are nothing to worry about It only means that a little bit of mascara is excessive, which needs to be removed for that perfect look. Take hold of a wand that is free from mascara and gently comb them with an outward motion. Do not attempt to push them to the base of the eyes in a reverse motion.

Keep them free from smudges with a primer

After all the effort that has gone into the application, you really would not want the mascara to smudge because of makeup. Go in for a primer that will precede the makeup. This will keep the mascara intact. And choose the right kind of mascara, depending on the activity you are headed to. For instance, you may be the kind of person who sweats a lot, or maybe you will come in contact with water. Choose the right kind of mascara to keep it on your eyes for long. Many brands of mascaras can be thrown on to last the whole day, without smudging.

All About Dying Your Hair Black

At first glance, it looks like dying your hair black should be a really straightforward issue. You apply a permanent or demi-permanent dye and wait for the required time. Then you wash it off and glossy, black hair is yours! But this is not always the case. Dying your hair black is easier than bleaching it to platinum blonde, but it has its own set of challenges. Here is how to do it right.

Choose The Right Kind Of Black

Generally speaking, cool hued blacks (or blue blacks) are more difficult to pull off than dark chocolate hues. If you are looking for a natural looking black dye check our your skin undertones and try to match them.

If your skin has warm or golden tones, a warmer hue of black will generally look more natural. If you have very pale and cool toned skin, a blue black dye can make you look like Snow White. It all depends on what effect are you looking for.

Applying Black Dye

If you are dying your hair at home, start with reading the instructions on the box. Cover all surfaces with newspapers and wear a t-shirt you don’t mind getting stains on. Because black dye tends to stain a lot. Most hair box dyes will come with a set of plastic gloves; vinyl or latex gloves which are cheap and fit better are a better alternative.

To achieve even results and avoid banding you should section your hair in at least 4 sections. If you have very thick hair, create 6 or even 8 sections and clip them out of the way. Start applying dye to the roots, and then work through to the ends making sure the hair is fully saturated.

Don’t Leave The Dye On Too Long

If you are dying your hair at home, make sure you follow the instructions and don’t leave the dye on your hair too long. This is because black hair dye deposits color, and too much deposit means opaque, obviously dyed looking hair.

If you are just covering your roots, make sure you apply the dye in two steps. First apply it to the roots, and then to the tips for a shorter time so there is not excess color deposit. This will create the most natural results, and avoid banding.

Do Not Try To Dye Blonde Hair Black

Blonde hair has little to no red pigments on it, mostly yellow. Black dye has red and blue pigments on it. The end result of mixing both? Orange or even green hair, or something that resembles a swamp monster. This is particularly common when trying to get bleached hair back to a darker hue.

If you want to dye your blonde hair black you will need to first fill in some of the missing pigments, and then dye your hair black. This can be a complicated process, so unless you have a lot of hair coloring experience you may prefer to visit a hairdresser.

Brave To Used Red Make Up

Girls, have you found out one truth: makeup trends come and go so quickly in every season, but the classic red lip is always a hit in the favorite makeup styles. Fall is here, and the super hot makeup style in summer is forgotten by people already. But why can the classic red lip always has its place in the top fashion circle?

Some girls tell me that they find it hard to create such a classic red lip makeup though it look perfect in the face of celebrities in the magazine and TV. Not really and don’t worry, do as the following 4 steps, you can finish this lip makeup easily.

1. Soften your lips first. Getting rid of the dead skin in the lips can be achieved easily by this trick. Mix a little bit of coconut or olive oil with 1/4 spoon of sugar, and then massage on your lips. When the massage is done and you feel that there is no dead skin left in the lips, let the mixture stay in the lips for a minute so that the oil can be absorbed by the lips and make them moist.

2. Circle the lip lines with a lip liner, which should be deep red to match your lipstick color. Then you should outline the lip shape carefully and slightly. Finally fill your lips completely with the lip liner. In this way, a nice and sticky base can be created here. It enables your classic red lip makeup to last for a longer time too.

3. Now it is time to apply the red lipstick. Firstly, apply a layer of it in the lips and then blot it with a piece of tissue. Then apply the second layer and blot it again. It is to build up the volume and make the lipstick stay in right place. After these three steps, your most wanted classic red lip like Taylor is done.

4. Here comes an optional step. It can make your lips more voluminous! Dab a little bit of highlighter onto the center of your lips and then blend in with your fingertips. Your stylish luscious and enviable red lips will be so full now. Elegant and sweet at the same time, yes, that is what your lip makeup look like!
