Baby Oil not just for Babies

Baby Oil is generally used to massage babies with but do you know it's a great moisturizer for adults as well.
Keeps your skin hydrated all day, especially good in the winter.
Nowadays oil contains vitamin E and aloevera.
Below are some uses of baby oil which many women have been hiding since long.
1. Apply baby oil after taking bath while the skin is still damp. Damp skin soaks the moisturizer well and retains it in the skin well. Apply it on dry areas such as elbows, knees and heels to make them soft. In summers you can massage the oil while in shower and take bath .Your body will be soft like of a baby.

2.Baby oil is a great make up remover especially for those who have sensitive skin. You can even remove your eye make up with it. It will not only remove the makeup but will soften and moisturize the skin around the eyes as well. Also, removing mascara is the most easiest thing to do with baby oil

3. Apply baby oil instead of shave gel and shave your sensitive part of your body. This will keep your skin moisturized much longer than any lotion. This will make your legs soft and shiny too .You can wear any short skirt after applying baby oil. People won’t be able to keep their eyes off from your shiny legs. Apply in a moderate amount otherwise you may end up feeling greasy

4. You can replace your hair serum with baby oil. Serum is expensive and is required in small amount .All you have to do is apply couple of drops in the palm of your hand and rub them together and gently apply to the areas of your hair. Works every time and especially on a hot humid day.

5. After manicuring your nails apply baby oil on your cuticles . Moisturizer will settle down and will stop splitting your cuticle. Of course it will make your hand soft and gentle all day long.

6. Apply baby oil on your hands after washing utensils and clothes. It helps in moisturizing your hand and improves the skin of the hand by reducing friction from it. You can use it whenever your hands feel dry. It’s not a bad idea to keep it near your wash basin and apply it whenever you go there to wash your hand.

7. Mix baby oil with your favorite bubble bath .This will make your skin soft like a baby.

8. Apply baby oil whenever it is difficult to take out your ring or bangles gets stuck in your hands.

9. Apply oil on body before going out in winters. This will insulate your body and will keep you warm .

10. Put few drops of baby oil in your ears and remove wax build up easily.

11. If you are suffering from cracked heals then apply baby oil on your heals before going to the bed. Wear socks and get your soft feet’s within few weeks.

Now you know that baby oil is not for baby alone.

Spring Flowers Makeup Look

 Spring Flowers are going to be closer to us soon!
Here's what you need
e.l.f 100 palette- lime green and medium pink, orglamix- vanilla eyeshadow, e.l.f- hypershine lip gloss- joy, blossom, e.l.f brightening eyeliner- black

Apply your primer, then a pink base. Apply medium pink in the inner half, and lime green on the outer half. Leave the middle free of any color. Blend both colors into your crease, take a eyeshadow color the same color as your skin and just blend the color that is above your crease. Take the vanilla color or any shimmer white and apply it to the center of your eyelid, and under neath your brow.
Line your eye with black eyeliner, apply mascara.
Apply pink blush.
Apply a lipgloss since I'm doing my 10 pan project I used the hypershine in joy and blossom, a more natural lip is better for this look.

(10 pan project- lip gloss, eyeliner, concealer, powder, mascara)

Project 10 pan!

What is Project 10 pan?
You have to use up 10 products before purchasing anything new.
It can be a foundation..lipstick..lipgloss..blusher..eyeshadow or eyeliner...anything like that.
Has to be all used up for it to count.

The big question is...who is with me?!

Here is my Project 10 pan

e.l.f- concealer, clarifying pressed powder

e.l.f- translucent matifying powder
youngblood- ultimate concealer
e.l.f- hypershine gloss

e.l.f- mineral eyeshadow primer, Brightening Eye Liner

Rimmel-Max Volume Flash
e.l.f- all over stick

So there you have it, most things will be used up fairly quickly (powder, concealer) while others not (eyeliner)

Katy Perry Grammy 2011 Inpired Makeup

Here is a great makeup look for Spring ispired from Katy Perry.
It uses purples, greens and bright lips! All the trend this spring
Here's what you need:
I used all e.l.f products- 100 palette top two purples, minty lip gloss- New York City, plumping lip gloss- Fushia Fanatic, Shimmer eyeliner pencil- Grassy Green, cream eyeliner- Black

Apply your eye primer on eyelid and under your lower lash line. Next if you have a silver base apply it to your lid, it will help the purple be more metallic. Apply the lightest purple all over your lid, with a crease brush take the darker purple and add it to your crease and blend. Take a eyeshadow color the same as your skin and blend the dark purple upwards.
Line your lower lash line with the pencil and go over with a lime green eyeshadow. Take a silver and add it to the inner corner.
Line your upper lash line with the black eyeliner and apply mascara.

Apply a pink blush.

Lips: Apply the Fushia Fanatic first then the New york city. If you rather go with a lipstick then a gloss use Gypsy with the New york city gloss over top.

Now you are all ready for Spring!

Shaping your lips

shape up your lips

Applying lipliner is not only a great way to define and accentuate the shape of your lips, but also to keep your lipstick from feathering.

1. Begin applyling lipliner at the center of your natural upper lip line to define the bow then work toward the outer corners to complete the line.
2. Start at one corner of your bottom lip then follow your natural lip line all the way to the other corner.

Tip: Choose a lipliner that matches your lipstick or a flesh tone shade for a soft, natural look.
Tip: To get plumper, pinker looking lips, do not touch up by drawing a hard lip line; smudge it so lips look fuller! For a more dramatic fullness, choose a lipstick shade with a hint of frost.
Tip: To avoid lipstick on your teeth, put your index finger in your mouth and then draw it out slowly with your mouth closed. What you see on your finger is what would have ended up on your teeth!
