Eyebrow Shaping Tips for women

Eye Brow Shaping

Simple eyebrow shaping tips that will make the world of difference in putting your best face forward. We cover how to design your brows, to the tools you need, and how to reduce the ouch factor in our top ten do’s and don’ts.

1.    Do decide on the eyebrow shape first

You need a plan of action on deciding where your brows are going to start, end, and where to to place the peak of the arch. Use a white eyeliner or concealer on the hair that you want to remove, so you don’t stray off course.

If you think using eyebrow stencils means you can’t go wrong, you can. They don’t take into account how your brows currently look and your other facial features.

2.    Do use a quality pair of tweezers

Most people opt for tweezers when shaping brows at home. You’ll be frustrated, and end up taking twice as long if your tweezers slide off or break the hair instead of pulling them out- or can’t grab onto short hairs. A good pair of tweezers cost about $20, and worth the small investment.

3.    Do trim brows if needed

Here’s a very important eyebrow shaping tip. A big mistake people make is taking out more hair when trimming the excess length really is what needs to go. For men this helps make the brows look more neat and groomed and for women it helps them acheive that perfectly defined look.

4.    Do clean up top of brows, it’s not a beauty no-no

I remember reading in my teen magazines growing up NEVER to touch the top of the brow. How things have changed. While I’m not suggesting going into the main shape of your brow, experts agree cleaning up the stray hairs above the shape create a more defined, clean eyebrow and can help trouble brows look even with one another.

5.    Do use an eyebrow pencil or eyeshadow for correcting

If you have sparse brows, over plucked, or are growing out brows to a fuller look, use feathery strokes of an eyebrow pencil or shadow to fill-in. For medium to dark eyebrows, choose a color a shade lighter than your natural color. If you have light brows opt for a shade closest to or a half shade darker than your natural color.
6.    Don’t stand too close to the mirror when shaping

With some distance from the mirror you will be able to better see to balance your brows and see the ‘whole picture’, and have less chance of making brows uneven. After you have your shape in, you can then get close-up to better reach the finer, lighter hairs.

7.    Don’t put a shape that isn’t flattering to your face

keep in mind that arching your brow doesn’t mean two perfect half circles or arches, which doesn’t complement anyone’s facial features. It does mean to clean up the excess hair to better frame your eyes.

8.    Don’t use ice to numb skin

Cold tightens the pores and can make a firmer hold on the hair follicle. You want to soften skin and hair by using a warm washcloth on brows, or do your shaping after your come out of the shower. If you’re really concerned about the ‘ouch factor’ use a numbing spray first applied to a cotton swab and then to eyebrow area.

9.    Don’t shave eyebrows

I know there are little razors sold out there specifically for your brows. Read why shaving your legs is okay, shaving your eyebrows is not.

10.    Tweeze Correctly

Hold skin taut by gently holding skin firm with your free hand while tweezing, means less tugging and pain on the skin.

If the hair is just too short for tweezing, don’t push the tweezers into the skin. Scraping, bleeding or even scarring can result if you get a little too forceful with your tweezers. Having some hair is a better option over broken skin. Instead, just wait until the hair is a bit longer and can be easily grabbed on to.

Mehndi for hand – Desings & Tips

Jessica Simpson with her Mehndi design

1    The hotter you are the darker the mehndi colour comes out on the skin.

2    Once mehndi is applied on the skin, it should be left overnight for at least 5-6 hours to enhance the deepness in colour.

3    The colour on the skin will darken on the day after the mehndi has been applied. The darkness in colour will last for a few days and will fade away.

4    The mehndi powder can be a khaki, green or dark brown colour   depending on where it comes from. It usually develops into a chocolate   brown colour when applied as a paste onto the skin. Fresh mehndi   powder will produce a strong dark brown colour and will last longer.   Stale mehndi will produce a light orange colour, which will not get   darker over time.

5    Lemon Juice & sugar syrup can be applied with cotton wool on to the  mehndi once it is dried. This will secure the mehndi onto the skin more and therefore, result in the darkness of the colour on the skin.

6    The use of black “henna” should be avoided as it contains a dangerous chemical called Para-phenylenediamine (PPD) found in hair dyes which causes skin irritations.

7   Brides should have waxing done before mehndi is applied on them as otherwise the mehndi will be waxed off with the hair!

8   To beautify your mehndi for mehndi nights, wedding or receptions, body glitter and gems in different colours can be applied on the skin to match the outfits. Mehndi Creations specializes in all types of glitter work.

‘Men do cry’, says Bangalore’s men’s rights group

Bangalore, Nov 18 : As the world celebrates International Men’s Day Thursday, a Bangalore-based group wants an end to stereotyping male gender, and says men too get hurt, both emotionally and physically. The group is demanding justice for various social abuses against men.

“Men are always stereotyped. They are considered as perpetrators of injustice against women, they are supposed to take financial care of the entire family and not cry even in harshest of conditions,” Kumar Jahgirdar, a senior member of All India Men’s Welfare Association (AIMWA), formed to protect male rights, told IANS.

International Men’s Day is an international event celebrated Nov 19, every year. It was started in 1999 in Trinidad and Tobago and supported by the United Nations

The objectives of celebrating an International Men’s Day include focusing on the health of men and boys, improving gender relations, promoting gender equality, and highlighting positive male role models.

According to statistics available with National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), 52,583 married men committed suicide compared to 28,188 married women in 2005, 55,452 married men committed suicide compared to 29,869 married women in 2006, and 57,593 married men committed suicide vis-�-vis 30,064 married women in 2007.


Birthday Gift Ideas For Your Boyfriend

birthdaygiftWhether you and your boyfriend have been dating for three months or three years, he deserves to have a wonderful present from you whenever he celebrates his birthday.

Well-thought out gifts are always a great way to show your affection and love for your boyfriend. Some men may not be as open emotionally as women, but your boyfriend surely could not resist giving you a kiss or a hug in exchange of all the time and effort that you put into finding the perfect birthday present for him.

Here are some great and romantic gift ideas  to give the most special man in your life on his birthday:

1. Something romantic.

A birthday present does not always have to be something expensive. Be creative in thinking of a romantic birthday gift
 for your boyfriend. If he has always given you flowers before, why don’t you return the favor by giving him a dozen red roses? It will make him remember you as the only girl who ever gave him roses for his birthday.

A little effort would go a long way, too. Cook him his favorite dish and invite him over for a romantic picnic or dinner. Bake him a birthday cake, invite his friends over and surprise him with a birthday party.

Shower him with love notes, or make his entire day special by giving him a different gift in the morning, noon and at night. Be creative in thinking of something fun, romantic and special to give him a birthday that he is not likely to forget.

2. Something that he wants.

If your special someone is into gadgets, give him that game gadget or music player that he is always talking about. If he is a car enthusiast, get him a great car accessory. Or, rent a sports vehicle or his dream car for him to drive on his birthday. Go out and spend a day indulging in the sport that he just loves.

3. Something naughty.

Glow-in-the-dark boxer shorts are a sure-fire way to tickle his fancy. An intimate yet funny gift will remind him of the intimate moments that you shared together as a couple.

4. Something nice and traditional.

A gift basket with all the things that he likes on one delightful package also makes for a great birthday present for your boyfriend’s birthday. A basketful of chocolates or wine is a wonderful birthday present.

If he is an executive, get him an expensive tie, cute cuff links
 or a nice wristwatch. Give him a set of his favorite cologne, perfume and aftershave. If he loves sailing, get him an antique compass that he can use.

5. Something that says “I love you.”

You can literally give him an item with the message of how you feel. Give him a keychain for his car and house keys with an engraved message. Even small items like this would make your boyfriend feel special.

Remember that it is not always the cost that counts when giving out presents for your boyfriend on his birthday.

A well-thought out gift that would remind your boyfriend of how special he is to you will send out the right message on his birthday.
