Luckily, following these simple hygiene tips can help you to combat these negative effects:
Nature has provided every woman with unique beauty traits. In every culture there are different trends and techniques used to enhance the beauty trait. But what remains same in every region of the world is to apply makeup to instant change. It’s been year’s women are using different makeup products to get a signature look. However main emphasis has always been on the eye makeup because your eyes speak. Eyes reflect the personality of a person. Therefore to enhance the beauty of your eyes we must be known to products that can help us achieve the perfect eye look. Well I don’t consider talking about as simple products as basic black liner or kohl as the basic product you need because it is too basic. However, below is the list of some eye makeup products essential for achieving different eye looks to turn the heads. In addition to this, few tips are provided to use them in the best way possible.
Under eye concealer:
First thing first! Dark circles makes you look like you have escaped zombie apocalypse. These days due to busy and hectic routine many of us experience sleep deprivation that leads to under eye circles. However sometimes they get naturally shadowed. Basic concealers are so common and sometimes not able to perform their job on point. At this time you take help of color correctors to hide your dark circles completely and then conceal them with the regular concealer. But let me introduce you to the one product that a stand as one-man army against this problem, the product is under eye concealers. Thick pigmented under-eye concealers are developed with peachy undertones that go perfect with every skin tone. It is a multi-purpose product that serves as a color corrector, primer and concealer as basic.
White eyeliner is another versatile and a multipurpose product. Using a simple brown and black eyeliner pencils where define your eyes and helps in achieving natural look. White eyeliner can be used for natural everyday look. Do you know tight lining your lower eyelashes with white eyeliner makes your eyes look bigger and brighter? Yes it does. Doing so creates illusion of eliminating gap between eye ball and eye lashes making them look bigger. Other than this, if you fall short of eye-primer someday you can use it as an eye primer before applying eye shadow to get a perfect sticky base for your eyeshadow so that the colors will pop-out when applied. Another way you can use it is to try create new styles. Double it with your regular liner and you are ready to flaunt.
Eye Makeup Remover:
As applying makeup is an art so is removing it. We usually get sick of removing waterproof mascara, creamy eyeshadows or gel eyeliners. After all these struggles, eye makeup remover usually comes at the last priority on majority of the makeup users list but it as important as other makeup implements. Eye makeup removers are composed of ingredients that helps you to remove those can’t stop, won’t stop stubborn makeup formulas. Using eye makeup remover protects your skin from drying and protects your eyes from getting makeup allergies and removes every bit of the makeup residue.
You would be thinking that who does not know that mascara is essential for eye makeup but mentioning it here has a different reason. Mascara is a quick fix for your eyes. If you are lazy and do not want to put any makeup, you can go for mascara to enjoy the perks of beautiful eyes. Therefore, from past decades women are using mascara to provide volume to their eyelashes. However by the time formula an application technique has also evolved. The shapes of mascara brushes have been evolved too. I recently tried tubing mascara that turned out amazing for me. Tubing mascara has the same formula as other mascara’s but different brush. Applying it makes your eyelashes covered on 360 degree with the product making your lashes even fuller. To know more about it check this post.
Tip: Always use an eye-lash curler before applying mascara to them, apply mascara by going back and forth this will leave a good amount of product on your eyelashes making them look fuller. For professional touch apply false-eye lashesat the end. J
Variety of color adds dramatic statement to your makeup. Eye shadow fulfills this purpose. There are varieties of eye shadows available in the market today. Creamy, glittery, matte and powder you name it you get it. I always prefer picking up an eyeshadow palette that contains all varieties of these color pops. This would help you going from natural look to elegant, from day time look to night look and funky statements. However, if you like to go for same color again and again try cream eyeshadow they are way pigmented then powder eyeshadows.
These are some products that you can use for signing simple eye statements in addition with using them creatively.

To me, blogging is all about talking about your favourite things and what you are most passionate about. As you have seen so far, I am a lover of skincare and using natural products to enhance your outer beauty. Since moving to the country, I have met a lady that makes her OWN skincare range, which I have previously mentioned but only mentioned it a little bit. I love women who are creative in what they do, and Kirsty does just that! She has been a Beauty Therapist for 20 years, so she knows what she is doing!

I recently tried her Mineral Clay Mask which was just heavenly after it is rinsed! It dries up really well, and you leave on for about 10-20 minutes, and scrub off with warm water and a flannel. It comes in a powder form as per below, so you just put a few drips of water in and voila, let the magic do it itself!!! It has natural herbs in it, and there are different types, for normal skin to combination, and oily skin and it is ONLY $25. This is on my “TO BUY” list.
Here is the “Enter the Sandman bath soak” which is $20, and the “Dead Sea Float” is $35. – They are both for muscle and joint aches and to also help you sleep which has relaxing essential oils. I am in need of this after a work out at the gym, especially after using a Jari Love fitness DVD! It really works your thighs! I feel like I need this now!!! Both these products (when used together) will soothe your body and leave you floating on a cloud!!

I also love the look of this Luxe Nights package. It is a total “pampering session” in one little box! and is also on my “TO BUY” list. I’ve always known that I want the package with the “milk bottle”! and the powder fluff with the blue ribbon….
Soothing Milk Bath – This has natural ingredients that will soothe your senses, and give you that pampering luscious luxury feeling.

I am a Mary Kay fanatic, and I have been using the skincare and makeup for about several years. I was a consultant for a little while when I was 23-24, but never got around to hosting classes. I gained a lot of knowledge and absolutely loved the $5 book on how Mary Kay started her company. It was very inspirational. I still have the TimeWise collection for the face but don’t use it as often, as I keep to my daily ritual of Neutrogena cleanser and Sukin moisturiser, and it seems to be working for me! I like how Mary Kay likes to “THINK PINK“. I collected so much stuff from applying as a consultant, and LOVED all of the makeup. I used a lot of things as gifts as well and adored the packaging.
With the products I used, I used a lot of pinks and browns as I always wanted to create a “natural day wear” look. I don’t know about you, but I love those two colours the MOST! Here is attached the CURRENT Catalogue of Mary Kay where you can explore what’s in at the moment with their makeup.
