Tips about your face

Keep in mind that defining a facial shape can be a subjective matter!

While some people might see an oval shape in the mirror, their stylist might tell them that they have a round or even slightly squared face. Remember that you want a style that draws attention to your face.

If your face is round, you want to minimize fullness, and the most flattering styles will keep hair off your face. This will emphasize your cheekbones, jaw line and eyes. You can wear long or short hair, but it’s often advisable to add layers to create volume at the top of your head, which elongates and slims the face. Make sure hair isn't too full on the sides, as this will only serve to accentuate the roundness you’re trying to downplay.

With an oval face shape, you can go short or long, but keep your hair an even length. Too many layers create excessive volume. Oval faces tend to be on the small side, and high-volume hair can be overpowering. Long, wispy bangs are generally flattering.

If you have a long face, avoid the popular bob hairstyle, which draws attention to facial length-particularly in the chin area. Also stay away from short bangs and excess volume on top. You can create volume on the sides with a layered cut, which will produce the illusion of fullness.

But if you have a square face, don't cut your hair too short. Layers, accompanied by volume on the top and sides, soften your look. Length in the back generally works, as do bangs—as long as they’re soft and subtle.

Get Out Your Tape Measure:

1. Measure your face across the top of your cheekbones. Write down the measurement on a piece of paper.
2. Measure across your jaw line from the widest point to the widest point. Write down the measurement.
3. Measure across your forehead at the widest point. Generally the widest point will be somewhere about halfway between your eyebrows and your hairline. Write down the measurement.
4. Measure from the tip of your headline to the bottom of your chin.

Here is what you have to do to ensure that your extensions are well taken care of:

If you don't moisturize your hair extensions they will become brittle and break easily leading to split and ratty ends. We recommend a good moisturizer for Hair Extensions.
2. Treat them with respect. They will not grow back if you yank at them with a brush, burn them with the blow dryer, kill them with chemicals. Be nice to them - they cost a lot of money so make sure you get your money's worth.
3. Always brush out all knots before you wash your hair, swim, or sleep. Start at the bottom and work your way up slowly using a paddle brush.
4. Make sure you wash in between the braids to keep your scalp clean and free of bacteria.
You can have any length you want up to about 26"-30". Any natural hair over this length is about 8 - 10 years old at the ends and as such loses quality. Also, anything longer than this puts extra weight on your scalp which may lead to uneven pressure and damage to your own hair.


-Attaching and removing them requires special training and education.
-There are no regulations or imposed standards in the human hair industry. There are many unscrupulous suppliers.
-Hair Extensions require extra work on your part to maintain and keep healthy.
-No type of hair extension is completely undetectable.

Eyebrow Makeup

We spend a lot of time making sure our eyebrows have that perfect shape we all desire. Sometimes eyebrow makeup is usually the forgotten product in the makeup regimen. When using the correct eyebrow product and eyebrow color, anyone can have perfect eyebrows.

You must learn how to pick the best eyebrow color and eyebrow products.

Eyebrow Pencil: The eyebrow pencil is the most common product to use on ones eyebrows. However it can look harsh, so be sure to have a sharp point for easier application. For a more natural look, use short soft strokes and remember to blend with a firm eyebrow brush.

Eyebrow Powder: Brow powder is always a matte powder with high color pigments. You can also use an eye shadow that is matte and matches your hair color. Eyebrow powder provides the most natural look. Apply with an angle eye brush and with light strokes. Blend with an eyebrow brush.

Eyebrow Gel: Brow gel comes in clear or color formulas. It is only necessary if you have unruly eyebrows. If you use the clear formula, fill in prior with an eyebrow pencil or powder and apply the gel on top.
Sometimes it can be hard to figure out the exact color you should use on your eyebrows.

How To Apply Pencil Eyeliner:

First you need a eyeliner pencil, and a pencil sharpener.
Next you must prepare the skin with a layer of foundation over the eyelids to help the eyeliner go on smoothly, although this is not essential.
Try using a silicon based eyeliner pencil as it will glide on easily and last for a long time.

Work from the inner corner of each upper eyelid and move outwards along the roots of your eyelashes with several short strokes. Smudge this first layer with a finger to soften the look and cover any thin skin on your eyelid.

Add a second line for more definition, again drawing along the roots of the upper lashes and covering the entire length of the eyelid.

Next, draw a line along the roots of the lower lashes, stopping halfway along and working from the outer corner inwards.

We all admire the eye cat look -For a ‘cat eye’ look, flick the outer corner of the eyeliner with your thumb so that it wings outwards.
Start the line in the centre of your top lid, then draw the line in little connected dashes; it's easier and avoids stretching the skin. Make the line thicker towards the outer corner of the eye.
Try to think of drawing the line on to the bottom of the lashes rather than the eyelid.
Only start the line from the inner corner of the lids if your eyes are quite large.
If your eyes droop slightly, or just for a nice effect, curl the line upwards slightly at the corner of the upper lid.

Does beauty have a name, is it your name?

„It’s beauty that captures your attention – personality which captures your heart”

Stylists say that it’s often the little things, such as a touch of blush or of lipstick, that can make all the difference between looking plain or simply fabulous.

Eyes are the best part of every woman,they should be accented and defined!

With the help of a great make-up, they can transform the face.
It is generally claimed that "Beauty must give the sensitive beholder utmost satisfaction merely its existence". In other words beauty is what appears to. a beholder a perfect symmetry merely on a casual viewing.

Eyes are the windows to the soul!

For night eye make-up, use black eye-liner, dark mascara and white eye-shadow. This will high light your eyes by giving more definition to your eye lashes. If you do not have enough time to put eye color, mascara by itself is good enough.
For bluish or brown eyes, use black eye-liner and light blue mascara for the day time; and for evening, blue eye-liner, blue mascara and blue eye-shadow should be used. Use a clean, damp mascara wand to separate clogged lashes, and a damp cotton bud cleans blobs from surrounding skin.

Use toner on your face first and apply moisturiser, to enable better blending of foundation/concealer. Concealer is best applied after foundation - apply small dots where needed and gently pat into the skin, then wipe with a sponge to remove excess. Concealer can be applied with a sponge flusk or lip brush using the tips. If you feel a little more colour is needed add to the spots, and blend again with sponge.

The wrong colored skin foundations will make your color base pigments look either unwell or dirty. Makeup Foundations are used to provide an even skin tone, cover imperfections and give a finish to the skin. It should go on smoothly and evenly without adding shine or gloss.
If you have a dark skin stick to warm, earthy colors. Gold, bronze and maroon are in fact best for dusky skins. Cooler colors like mauve, pink and silver look better on fairer skins.Choose lipsticks with matte finish rather than frosted ones. The shades should not be too dark or too light. Medium dull shades would look best.

Eyebrows - Brush a clean mascara wand through them to diffuse the pencil tone.
Applying some tinted or flavored lip gloss will give your lips a soft and kissable look.

Use lash curlers over mascara to "open up" the eyes.
Eye Shadow Tips - Blend a dot of concealer on the centre of your lids to ease the colour.

Make sure to remove eye make-up at night. It is cleaned with baby oil. Close your eyes, apply baby oil on a cotton wool swab and scrub slowly, gently, keeping eyes closed. First clean the upper part and ends, then the lower part of the eyes, keeping your eyes open.

Eyes, cheeks and lips should all be enhanced with combinations of shimmer and matte.
Cheeks should be accented with a tawny blush and highlighted with a touch of soft golden shimmer, and lips will look wonderful in a warm shade.

Remeber that: „The greatest treasures are those invisible to the eye but found by the heart”

We love your eyes!

A little concealer goes a long way! We have the tricks to hide those unsightly imperfections. Easy does it!

The make up that you use should be designed together, as a whole. From your eyes to your lipstick and everything in between, it all has to work together. Here you will find countless pages of information on how to formulate a look that helps to enhance your look and even that will define you. No matter what fashion trend you are pursuing or what beauty style you prefer, there are eye make up tips here that will allow you to be the very best at it.

No matter if blue, brown, hazel or green, eyes have been referred to as windows to the soul, giving those who exchange glances the power to better grasp ones personality and emotions. Eyes reveal joy and elation as much as they uncover sadness, melancholy and distress. Sometimes pensive, mischievous or mysterious, eyes can let us in on little secrets we might otherwise miss in dealings with people we know and love.

One thing that should always be considered is the health of your eyes. Your vision should never be compromised for makeup and there is really no reason for that to happen either. Instead, you should be looking for overall health and well being with sensitive products, all natural products or those that are used correctly for health benefits.

Eyes can exercise a special power of seduction by casting an enchanting gaze in anothers direction. A wink can signal a special understanding or remind another of an inside joke or amusing memory. Eyes also key into flirtation a great deal. Cartoons and old movies always show the femme fatales batting their long, dark eyelashes in an attempt to attract the men.

Eye Make-up in just 8 steps.

Eye makeup is a complex set of steps. Achieving a beautiful look does not have to be hard though.

1. Prep your eyes with concealer.
Concealer can be used to cover up undereye circles or just the bluish discoloration just under your inner eye. To cover dark undereye circles, apply three dots of concealer under each eye. Start at the inner corner where skin tends to be darkest, then under the pupil and the third on the outer edge. Pat, never rub with your ring finger (this finger tends to have the softest pad) until it disappears.
2. Apply eye base to your lid.
Eye base is the secret to keeping your shadow in place for hours. Without properly priming your lid first, your eyeshadow will likely end up a greasy line in your crease.
3. Apply shadow.
It's great to use a three-toned shadow and build from lids to brow. Allowing them to blend into each other like a rainbow is gorgeous, according to celebrity makeup artist Mally Roncal. Start with a light color that almost matches your lid. Sweep the color across the lid and up to your browbone. Follow with a medium color across your lid only. Build on this with a darker color in the crease. Blend the colors well.
4. Follow with eyeliner
Dark eyeshadows work great as eyeliners. Wet a slanted brush, then dip in a dark eyeshadow. Line eyes as close to the upper lashes as possible from the inner corner to the outer corner. Follow with liner on bottom eyes, but only line from the middle of the eye out. Smudge the bottom line with a Q-tip or your finger. You don't want a prominent line. For a smokey eye, use a brush to pat in a dark eyeshadow along the upper lid and below the lid. You don't want a stark line, instead you want to blend it so it's 'smudge-y.'
5. Brighten your eyes with a highlighter
This step involves only the inside part of the eye. With a gold or pink highlighter (white is too bright), draw a v-shaped shape that follows the inner corner of your eye from top to bottom. Blend with your fingers. This will help make eyes 'pop.'
6. Highlight your brow
Take the same highlighter and dab it on your browbone, concentrating on your mid-brow outward. Blend with your finger.
7. Curl lashes
An eyelash curler will make even long lashes look more gorgeous. For added effect, you can heat the curler under a blowdryer for a couple seconds. Test curler before applying to lashes because you could burn yourself.
8. Apply mascara
Place the wand of your mascara brush at the bottom of lashes and wiggle back and forth. Follow with another few sweeps of the wand. Apply to bottom lashes as well.
Remember: The best thing you can do for your skin is to to take care of it. Treat it like the finest piece of silk you own. We'll show you how.

Hairstyle Tips

Sometimes a “bad hair day” can very easily become a “bad hair week” without fair warning. Sometimes the weather may be rainy and humid all week long, the hairstylist may have chopped our locks entirely the wrong way, but despite our dismay, life does go on! So, what shall we do than?
The truth is that many people do not know what else to do with their hair.
Hair styles tips was set up because after reading magazine after magazine only to find no real advice, nor the latest and best advice, we decided to put together our own information resource and have made all this information available for free.
After years of short, choppy layers dominating the catwalk and celebrity circuit, it seems that long layers are finally making a return to popularity. And it's not hard to see why: a long layered cut is one of the most versatile hairstyles you can choose from, and flatters the majority of face shapes. It's easy to maintain and gives volume and texture to flat hair, while providing the ideal shape for naturally curly hair. Curly Hair is perhaps the most versatile. You can blow-dry it straight, use rollers of various sizes to adjust the natural curls, or let it go soft and curly on its own.
When choosing your hairstyle, remember that you'll have a much easier time if you choose a style that lets hair do what it wants.
Fine hair has the appearance of softness, which can be very feminine and appealing. However, if you want it to look thicker, you should have it layered slightly. A soft body wave adds fullness and hair coloring can also give more body and make it look thicker.
Straight Hair can be thick or thin but when in perfect, shiny condition, it gives the impression of a shimmering sheet of hair. A straight, blunt cut to the length you decide is best. A body wave will create movement and curlers will help add height.
When you look today at the sheer number of tools and appliances available today to assist you in styling your hair, it's easy to get confused. What do I need? Will that work on my hair?
No surprises here - heat styling your hair is bad for it. Whether you're using a hairdryer, straightener or curling tongs, the heat generated from these appliances will weaken the hair shaft, prompting split ends. In order to keep your mane as healthy as possible, you should aim to only style your hair three times a month (or less). Think about it this way - yes, a perfectly styled mane looks good at the time, but after years of taking heat, it won't be long before your hair starts to split. Aren't you better off taking care of your hair's future, rather than ravaging it in the here and now? I believe the answer is yes.
Another thing that most women tend to ignore is that we must never present ourselves to the stylist with our hair not done. Remember that styling our hair before getting a cut is essential, as it offers the stylist essential information about us. For instance, if they can see we’re no good with a blow-drier, then they will know to go into the other direction, by giving us a ‘do that looks great when air-dried as well, the mag says.
If you're bored with your hair's current length and want a change, make sure you do your research before committing to a new style. Most hair disasters occur when you haven't thought about it enough, and you choose to do something impulsive.
First things first, the magazine tells us, we must always pick a stylist based on what they can do and not because of their reputation.
As the stylist cuts our hair, remember, we must pay attention for this is no time to start texting our friends or carefully studying our manicure. If we see the cut is heading in a direction that is not what we want, we must speak out so that the stylist knows to stop.
You must be honest with yourself! In general you will want to accentuate your best features and minimize your least favorite when choosing a hairstyle. For instance if you have larger forehead than you might want to have bangs, but if you have the most beautiful eyes than you dont want to cover them up with hairstyles with long bangs.
Look at your face shape! Hairstyles for rounder faces would normally be longer, possibly shoulder length, to minimize the width of your face. On the other hand a hairstyle for a longer faces could be shorter with bangs with hair flipped outward to give your face a wider appearence. For many, the question of whether or not short hairstyles would look good on them, is one that comes up over and over again right before a trip to the stylist. Depending on who you ask and the style you are trying to achieve, short hairstyles can look great on every face.
Movies are filled with beautiful women who accentuate their originality, rather than minimize it. This world, had grown so much smaller in these last years, has made us very conscious of our once foreign neighbors. Our new sophistication has broadened our ideas of beauty as well. We no longer laugh at differences or think them peculiar. We can see loveliness in a Chinese girl, in an Indian girl, in an African girl, and appreciate their brand of beauty, along with our own. Ourhairstyles have become supra-national to. We've borrowed them from every corner of the world.

Remember: „We live in a time when no one hairstyle is considered the fashion of the day!”
