5 PERFUME HACKS TO KEEP YOU FRAGRANT LONGER!!!!!!!!!!

Hello Style Bunnies 🙂

Christian Dior once said: “long after one has forgotten what a woman wore, her perfume lingers on”. So, it would be pretty anti-climatic if that wasn’t the case, non? To help you make that lasting impression, here are the untold, little secrets, to keep your perfume fragrant ATT, keeping you smelling simply marvellous.

It’s all in the pulse 

Most of us are guilty of committing an olfactory faux-pas by spritzing on to our clothes. Not only are you ruining your delicate georgettes and silk-linens, but you’re also wasting your precious scent. Instead, spritz onto your pulse points, that is: behind you ears, inside your wrists, the nape of your neck, inside your elbows and behind your knees. These are the warmest areas of your body and so the heat will ensure your perfume lasts all day long.

We’re always game for a Vaseline hack 

Vaseline is occlusive, hence it makes your perfume last longer as compared when sprayed onto dry skin. Just take a little dab of it onto your fingers and apply to the areas before you spritz on your favourite fragrance.

Dabbing is for amateurs 

When you dab your wrists together, albeit out of habit, the top notes tend to disappear faster and as a result your fragrance does not last as long. To make truly everlasting, spritz some onto your wrists and let it dry on its own.

Citrus and florals for the after-shower 

The best way to lock in the scent is with the moisture on your skin. Moisture levels are high immediately after bath-time, so spritzing your perfume at this point of time will make you smell good throughout the day.

Mix your fragrance with your body lotion 

Yes, this does actually work! To keep smelling awesome all day long mix your fragrance with unscented lotion and apply it every morning. But make sure your lotion is totally fragrance free so that it doesn’t overpower the scent of your perfume.

And remember, when somebody smells good, we automatically perceive them as attractive. And if that isn’t incentive enough–we don’t know what is!

How To Grow BOLD & DRAMATIC Eyebrows Naturally…….

Hello Style Bunnies 🙂

My todays post is for Prynka. She asked me tips for growing eyebrows. I really enjoy writing for my friends and helping them in any way I can. So here is the Blog post.

Now even Science has proven that bold eyebrows are the single most important feature of our face – far more then eyes and lips for ” emotional expression as well as facial recognition”. Unmade eyebrows tend to hide the perfect features of a beautiful lady…. Rightly done eyebrows help us accentuate the desired appeal on the face.

But what if you could actually grow more hair, making the whole process of getting your eyes all dressed up both natural and effortless? It’s not too difficult, especially with these tried, tested and timeless home recipes.

1. Castor Oil:

Castor oil is a very old and a tried and tested remedy to get thicker and prominent eyebrows. It is inexpensive and is easily available in the market. It contains protein, vitamins, fatty acids and antioxidants that nourishes the hair follicles and promote hair growth.

All you need to do is take a little castor oil on your fingertips and apply directly on to your eyebrows. Leave this overnight and wash off in the morning. You can witness possible changes in about 3-4 weeks of time.

Note: Stop using castor oil if it causes any irritation or burning.

2. Olive Oil:

Olive oil is also good for your eyebrows. Being rich in vitamin E, olive oil can help your eyebrow hair grow faster and thicker. It will also help keep it dark-hued. You do not need a large amount of the oil – dab a drop on both brows and massage gently, preferably twice a day.

3. Whole Milk:

You can also use milk to grow your eyebrows thicker. Milk contains protein as well as other nutrients that nourish hair roots and improve hair growth. Simply dip a cotton bud in whole milk and apply it daily on the eyebrow area.

4. Aloe Vera:

Aloe vera juice stimulates hair growth on the eyebrows. It gives a good shine to the eyebrow area with persistent application. Aloe vera nourishes hair follicles and boosts hair growth. It also restores and repairs the damage caused to the eyebrows due to over plucking or waxing.

You can Extract the gel from an aloe vera leaf. Gently massage it over your eyebrows. Allow it to sit for 30 minutes before rinsing it off with lukewarm water.

5. Fenugreek Seeds:

Fenugreek seeds can also help grow thick eyebrows. They are rich in protein as well as nicotinic acid and lecithin that promote hair growth. The seeds also help in rebuilding hair follicles.

What you have to do is Soak 1 teaspoon of fenugreek seeds in water for at least 5 hours. Grind the soaked seeds into a thick paste, then add a little coconut oil or almond oil. Apply the paste on the brows just before going to bed and leave it overnight. Wash it off in the morning with warm water. Follow this remedy 2 or 3 times a week for 2 months.

6. Essential Oils:

Mix together one teaspoon each of lavender oil, rosemary oil, pine oil, sandalwood oil and olive oil. Massage this mixture into your eyebrows daily, before going to bed.

7. Eat Nourishing Food:

As we all know, a good diet is essential for the health of the body—including eyebrows! Foods rich in omega 3, vitamin B, iron, protein and zinc should be included in the everyday diet. Green leafy vegetables contain large amount of vitamins and minerals, so they should be taken regularly too. Vitamin supplements should also be taken to prevent deficiencies of vitamins and minerals.

Get 3 Finishes with 1 Lipstick………

Hello Style Bunnies 🙂

Lipstick is one product that is close to every girl’s heart and lips. We love our lipsticks and we often end up spending a bomb on them. But do you know that you can actually get your money’s worth by using your lipstick in different ways?

With these simple steps, get different finishes with one lipstick and get stunning looks each time you step out. Have a look:

Light Tinted Shade

Dab some lipstick on your lips with your finger and swipe it gently. Start slowly and add more color as required. You can walk around like this for a natural everyday look or apply a translucent lip balm on your lips to add some glow.

Ideal usage: For an everyday look

Shiny Gloss Look

Begin with applying a full coat of your favorite lipstick shade on your lips. Next, apply a transparent or shimmery gloss over the lipstick. It’s recommended that the gloss is applied just in the center of both the top and bottom lips to get the perfect glossy pout.

Ideal usage: For a party night

Matte Finish

To get the trendy matte look, apply a coat of the lipstick that is already there in your drawer. To get fine precision and give a proper shape to your lips, you can also apply using a lip brush. Next, use a blotting paper to get rid of that extra shine.  Re-apply the lipstick and blot it again. To get that final look, dust some loose translucent powder and get that perfect matte finish.

Ideal usage: For brunch or outings

Now that you know how to get these different looks for various occasions, are you ready to try them on?

How To Shape Your EYEBROWS: Tips and Tricks

Hello Style Bunnies 🙂

You have ignored them more than once, sometimes knowingly, sometimes unknowingly. But then you realize later that your face does not look flawless only because you did not pay enough attention to them. Yes, we are talking about your EYEBROWS!

18741079db73f634cbe0f0cec3f114dc

Perfectly defined eyebrows frame your eyes and give definition to your face. The right brow opens up the entire eye area and improves the overall symmetry of the face. However, just like haircuts, eyebrow shapes are not one-size-for-all. The perfect brows depend on the dimensions of your face and the right arches can take years off you! Now that we have your attention, let’s get started and learn how to shape your eyebrows.

The face of an individual plays an important role in determining what kind of eyebrows suits the best. To help you find out your golden arches, we have listed down the best kind of brows for a variety of face shapes:

Square Face:

Rounded brows are best suited for a square face as the jaw line accentuates the angularity of the face. However, make sure to not make them too round and create rainbow-shaped brows.

Square

Round Face:

Since a round face lacks a defined facial bone structure, make sure that your eyebrows are very angular so as to give definition to your face. You can try for higher arches and flatter your face.

Round

Long Face:

A typical characteristic of long faces is vertically stretched features. Therefore, in such a case, you should play up on your eyebrows and emphasize on your horizontal features. For this, extend the tails of your eyebrows east-to-west and go beyond the corner of the eye to get the perfect shape.

Long

Heart Shaped Face:

Keep your eyebrows well-manicured and perfectly groomed and you’re good to go. This will compliment your petite jaw line and balance the smaller chin area.

Heart

Oval Face:

For such a well-proportioned face, a classic brow with a slight arch will make the day.

Oval

Now that you know what kind of brow shape you should aim for, let’s get down on how to actually shape them:

1. Before you actually start playing with your eyebrows, visualize the shape of your brow. The front of the eyebrow should be in sync with the upper bridge of the nose. The arch should be at three-fourth of the brow starting from the nose bridge. The tail should taper down and follow the angle of the eye. You can also use a white marker to mark your eyebrow shape.

2. Now that you know the brow shape, use a spoolie brush or an old mascara wand to lift your hair and coax them in place.

3. Start tweezing out all those stray hair with a slant tipped tweezer. Adjust your hand position and remove the hair in the direction of its growth. Unless you’re an expert, tweeze only the hair underneath your eyebrow and not above the brow.

4. Once you’re done tweezing, use an eyebrow pencil and fill in your brows with thick, short strokes along your brow bone. Go lighter in the start and darker in the end.

5. Now spread the color evenly to get well-groomed eyebrows.

6. After you’re done, dust a little translucent powder on your eyebrows to set your brow pencil and make them look freshly groomed.

Remember, the perfect eyebrows will make you look fresh, young and attractive. So are you ready to #DuoItYourself and wow those brows? Share your looks with us and give your feedback in the comments section below.

Why And How To Clean Makeup Brushes………?

Hello Style Bunnies 🙂

I’m back with another post for the day. We all use make-up brushes day in and day out to ease make-up application, and also to get the right kinds of finishes of the products. But most of us ignore cleaning these make-up brushes! With time, these brushes get worn out, which may be harmful for our skin. Using the same brush over and over again can be very un-hygienic. Since brushes are used for dry, wet and creamy products, bacteria tend to accumulate and grow on the surface of the brushes, and you may end up with break-outs on the face out of sheer carelessness and laziness.

The life of brushes also depends on various factors like where and how you store your them.

By now, you would have been convinced that why you should be regularly cleaning your make-up brushes. The important question is how! How to clean makeup brushes at home?

How to Clean Makeup Brushes:

Clean-with-Sponge-Baby-Shampoo

1. Use Olive Oil

Olive oil acts as a gentle cleanser and helps in keeping the bristles conditioned. Brushes made from natural hair or fibers should be cleaned using olive oil. Pour a tablespoon of olive oil onto a clean sponge (preferably a new one). Now swirl the brush over the sponge until dirt residues are transferred to the sponge. If your brush is still left unclean, you must repeat the process. Now rinse the brush under warm water to remove excess oil. Let the brush dry by placing it on a clean towel for some hours.

2. Use a Soap Bar

Choose a plain (unscented) bar of soap and wet it. Place it inside a bowl, so that it won’t slip away. Now swirl the brush in a circular motion onto the soap to form a lather. Ensure that soap does not enter the barrel as this will damage the glue that sticks the bristles to the handle. Also, do not press the brush hard. After cleansing is done, run some warm water on the brush to clean up the soap lather. Place brushes on a clean towel to let them dry. Soap bar is usually used when the brushes’ bristles are made of plastic.

3. Clean with Sponge and Baby Shampoo

Wet a clean sponge and put a little baby shampoo on it. Now swirl the tip of your brush in a circular motion on the sponge. This will work up the lather and help the soap clean your brush. Now, wash the bristles under warm water and allow it to dry on a clean towel.

Tip: Leave the brushes to dry over-night. Avoid using a hair dryer to dry the brushes, as the heat may damage the bristles in the long run.
