9 Beauty Hacks Every Woman Must Know


The Makeup industry has evolved a lot in the past few years, and standards of makeup perfection are very high. There are various makeup products available in the market, starting from eyelash curlers to highlighters, which have made makeup choice even complex.

Makeup is an art that one can learn.

But not everyone has the understanding of right makeup choices, applying techniques and makeover choices.

So, I am here with some simple makeup tricks and hacks that will make your life easier.

Transform Liner:

There is a variety of liners available in the market. Basically, liners are divided into three categories:

pencil liner

gel liner

liquid liner.

The pencil liner works best for the beginners because of its good grip.

However, liquid liners are more for professional use for thin, winged, sleek looks, whereas gel liners are the darkest and highly pigmented liners. I love the result of gel liners the most but gel liners are typically available in very few colours. To go crazy with different colours and texture of gel liner. I transform my coloured pencil liner into gel liner by simply introducing its tip to the flame for a few seconds. Let it cool, apply and see the change in consistency of the product in front of your eyes.

Make your Eyeshadow Shade Pop:

Many of us use primer and concealers to make our eyeshadow stay for a longer time period and to make its colour pop out. But what if you missed out your concealer? Well, don’t worry – the next hack is for you!

Do you have a white eyeliner? Yes. Great!

White eyeliner is a versatile product that can help you resolve many makeup problems. Well in this situation you can use your white eyeliner to cover your eyelid and blend a little. The opaque consistency of the white eyeliner will help sheer or less pigmented eyeshadow look more colourful on the eyelid. In addition to this, due to its high consistency it provides eyeshadow a base to stick properly. Know more about white eyeliner here.

Revive Your Eye Makeup:

Eye makeup products such as mascara or liner have a life of 6 months. But sometimes these products dry out really fast. Plumping mascara or liner tube is one of the reasons too. Well, to make them stay wet for longer, you can use a few drops of eye drops or saline solution instead of alcohol because they are friendlier to eyes. If you do not have eye drops we have another tip for you. Dip your mascara tube in a bowl filled with hot water for at least 10-15 minutes. This will also help you revive your dried mascara or liner. Find some amazing mascaras on this post.

Make your Customized Lipstick:

There are several makeup brands with numerous lipstick shades but there are times when you are not able to find perfect shade that you want or require. By using loose makeup colour pigments and Vaseline you can create your own lip colour. The benefit of this technique is you have control over the consistency of colour. Similarly, you can make tinted lip balms by replacing Vaseline with bees wax and coconut oil.

Avoid Peach Fuzz:

Always apply makeup with downward stroke because most of us have facial hairs and they usually grow downwards. Applying makeup with upward strokes will make your facial hairs standout.

Concealer:

Applying concealer with multiple strokes is not enough. If you apply your concealer in a triangular shape under your eyes, between your nose and cheek bones it will sculpt your face, blend well and less countering will be required. In addition to this, people who are suffering for breakouts can check concealers for covering pimples and acne scars here.

Two-in-one:

Well there are times when you fall short of makeup items and you think there is no way out. But let me tell you one tip that can save you when you do not have your liner with yourself. Take your liner brush and a mascara tube, open it and make sure that the wand contains enough product. Dab your liner brush on the wand and you are good to go.

Stay hydrated:

The simplest and easiest way to have younger looking skin is staying hydrated. Our body requires water to drain out toxins from our body, which not only cleanse our body from the inside but we can also see it’s reflection inside out.

Matte it:

Like your lipstick’s shade but do not want to go glossy? Turn your glossy lipstick into matte. Apply your lipstick and hold a tissue paper between your lips. It will soak any excessive moisture. Now take face powder and by the help of brush, apply a thin coat of powder on your lips. Do not apply too much and you have the matte lips in the same shade that you love.

5 Must Have Eye Makeup Products


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:

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.

Mascara:

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

Eye Shadow:

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.

7 Genius Makeup Tricks That Shave Years off Your Look Makeup


Makeup is one of the most important things for a girl. Every girl wants to look attractive and beautiful all the times. To do so is impossible nowadays. Women have to do work both in office and at home. They have to expose their skins under the sun, and they work hard for getting the finance they need to facilitate themselves. Before some decades the trend used to be much different.

Girls used to work at home, and it was the responsibility of male to earn capital, but now the trend has changed. In today’s era male and female have to work together to move constantly with time.

This work makes a woman much busier and indulges them much in work. At this time nobody can think of makeover. The girls who are possessive towards their facial expression usually opt surgery and operation. This causes a higher finance and gives much pain.

Surgery creates an artificial look and shine which can be spotted very easily. This makes many girls curious about anyway which requires less time and gives the fairness and smooth skin they intend to have.

Every working woman is getting much older with time, but they have no solution to avoid this. But even in this difficult time nature is still very helpful and some accessories can have a potential to make us younger in no time.

1- Fairness cream
To look beautiful the most important thing is the fairness. To gain fairness, you can use a fairness cream. First of all, you must decide a natural cream with fewer chemicals and harmful material.

2- Face-wash
The face wash is a material used to give you a smooth skin. Face-wash is to be used instead of soap to wash your face. A face-wash helps you get a smooth skin by removing the unessential from your face.

3- Sun-screen
Sun-screen helps you avoid the harmful rays emitted by the sun. It acts as a medium to reflect the dangerous rays such as the UV rays.

4- Mascara
Best tube mascara can be very efficient to give you a cute look. This mascara has a very thin and dark line which can get broader according to the requirements.

5- Cleansing
A cleanser is used to clean the dirt and the spots on the skin. What it helps is to avoid the growth of pimples and dark spots.

6- Lip-gloss
The modern-day upgrade to lipstick is a lip-gloss. It gives a glossy look to a girl to make her look younger day by day.

7- Diet
It is very important to remain on a diet. A diet helps us gain a better shape of a body. With inhaling more fats not only causes our belly fat to increase but it also makes the structure of our face much wider.

Traversing Travel – plus a few more beauty products! 


This week has been one hectic killer of a ride! I have had to move from small country town, Merredin to Scarborough (the sunny side of WA) all within a couple of days & which is a three hour drive, but it has been great! And I feel ready to take on the world! Well, my world. It is a transition changing from favourite coffee spots to new places in Western Australia that I haven’t been to before! 

First stop. Lawley’s. 

I had a chicken and cheese and avocado roll and chilled for a bit before heading off to the chemist.

You can also organise high teas at this cafe. Availability is Monday to Thursday and their phone number is 9245 6264.

You can also check out their website here

When I got to the chemist my eyes popped open at all the products that were on display! I’m a big beauty product fanatic if you haven’t noticed and I am always on the look out for something new. 

I bought a Dove Summer Glow Tanning Lotion which is great for pre-summer. Today was sunny so I loved walking in the sun trying to get some vitamin D. It will keep my skin richly moisturised during any season! 


Here are a few products to consider:



You can find them all at your local pharmacy if you’re in Australia, otherwise you may just need to google the product name and do a bit of online shopping! 

I also bought a few mags of course!!!!!! (How unlike me, lol) 



And had a walk through the neighbourhood. 


How lovely are these roses!


Lavender is a favourite of mine also.

Well, for now I will leave you with these photos of beauty products, and get back to watching my morning Netflix! Well, it’s actually afternoon! 😝 Coffee ☕️ is calling my name!

Completely Cosmetics (Part 4) Eyeliners


The function of the eyeliner is to frame and define the eyes.

I love the 60’s look with the BOLD eyeliner to accentuate the eyes. 

You can use either pencil or liquid. I tend to use pencil for everyday use and liquid for evening and special occasions. 

Liquid eyeliner can be a bit iffy and hard to apply. It only looks effective if you can create a VERY thin line. 

I think you need to be picky when choosing liquid eyeliners.

Today I bought a Savvy By DB Kohl eyeliner in Granite. 


It is a great everyday use eyeliner and only $5 at Priceline Pharmacy.


I will be using this NON – STOP!!!!! And there are more products on my shopping list. 


What is your favourite eyeliner?

Do you like using eyeliners?

Lipsticks add a sheer touch by setting the tone and adding colour to the face. What colour you wear is vital and is key, for when you are either out shopping or dining out at a restaurant. You can choose so many different types of lipsticks, from L’Oreal, to Revlon, Mary Kay, Chanel, MAC, Sephora, Charlotte Tilbury, the list is endless.

I love to wear pinky tones, because I am really girly-girl, I could have pink everything but my room’s not pink! I am just definite at wearing pink lipstick, as it shows my personality. I hardly wear red, only for really special occasions.

The most luminous lipstick I love is the Queen Lipstick / Matte Revolution. It gives a full plump look and the colour is pretty and bright. It has a great matte lip effect, and is totally flattering.
