Tips For The Perfect Cat Eye

When drawing a cat eye, follow the outer bottom lash line upward to get the perfect line.

If you have a hard time drawing a straight line of eyeliner at the base of the lids, draw dashes and connect by smudging the liner with a Q-tip.

When creating a cat eye, keep applying eyeliner past the length of your eyebrow. You can always remove the excess, but it can be really hard to lengthen a liquid line with precision if you’ve stopped too soon.

Things Women With Great Hair Do Every Day

She avoids heat styling as much as possible.
But let’s be honest, you have to use them sometimes. Michael Dueñas, celebrity hairstylist and founder of Hair Room Service, recommends steam rollers, which are gentle on the hair and do not get overly warm, as they’re heated solely by steam passing through the foam on the roller. But if you absolutely have to use hot tools (blow dryers, curling irons, wands, flat irons, hot rollers) to style your hair, always use a spray-in heat protectant, says Eve Galminche, Arrojo top colorist.

She always sleeps on silk.
Silk’s smooth texture won’t rough up your hair cuticle when you sleep the way cotton does, leaving you with smoother hair in return, explains Suave Professionals celebrity stylist Marcus Francis. Fewer frizzy strands in the morning? Now that’s the dream (no pun intended).

She keeps her hair clean.
We’re sure you’ve heard a lot about the No-Poo movement (basically not shampooing your hair to preserve your natural oils), but Cristophe Salon Newport Beach owner Scott Fontana urges you to listen to your hair. “As long as women are using quality products, they can benefit from more frequent washing,” he explains. “It reduces split ends, provides great moisture, and gives hair an overall clean and shiny look.”

She eats the right foods.
For all the attention we pay to the hair follicle once it leaves the scalp, half the battle for beautiful hair is already lost (or won) by what you’re putting in your body every day. According to Dr. Robert Dorin, New York City-board certified diplomat of the American Board of Hair Restoration, what you eat plays a huge role in gloss, growth, and volume.
“A diet rich in iron, zinc, Omega-3 fatty acids, and protein will help stimulate your hair follicles for growth.” Dorin recommends alternating between lean red meat, chicken, and fish during the week for optimum hair health.

Beauty Uses For Baking Soda

Beauty Uses For Baking Soda

Hand Wash
Sometimes antibacterial soap just can’t cut through a greasy mess (think: that time you used way too much coconut oil). Baking soda can actually cut through the oil slick to thoroughly clean skin. Pour a little bit of the powder into your hand and mix with water to remedy oily palms.

Dry Shampoo
When you’ve used your dry shampoo to the last pump, turn to baking soda for a quick DIY fix. Sprinkle the powder close to the roots and massage into the scalp to dry up excess oil. For dark hair, you can even add a spoonful of cocoa powder to avoid the pure white cast.

Natural Deodorant
If you’re looking for a natural deodorant without the threat of aluminum, you can turn to your kitchen cupboard. You can use baking soda mixed with water to create an odor-repelling paste. There are also more complex recipes that add essential oils, cornstarch, and arrowroot to the mix to create a DIY stick.

Teeth Whitener
Stir together a paste of baking soda and water. The natural exfoliant will help lift surface stains from coffee, red wine, and smoking. To really boost the efficiency of this treatment, you can mix the powder with hydrogen peroxide. While this DIY mix will immediately brighten tarnished teeth, baking soda can’t whiten permanently like an in-office bleaching treatment.

Face Scrub
The abrasive particles of sodium bicarbonate make it an easy and natural skin exfoliant. You can sprinkle the mix into your favorite gentle face wash for an added scrubbing effect. You can also make a paste of three parts baking soda and one part water.

Nail Whitener
An addiction to colorful nail polish shades can lead to yellowing tips and discolored cuticles. To whiten your nails, use a concoction of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Apply the salve with an old toothbrush and let sit for three to five minutes before rinsing.

Self-Tanner Remover
Got streaks? One wrong move and self-tanner can turn into a streaky, orange mess. You can easily fix visible tanning lines with baking soda. Apply a mix of baking soda and lemon juice to the area that’s uneven to scrub away the mistake.

Castor Oil Benefits!!!

Castor Oil Benefits!!!

Use #1: Improve Hair Growth
Castor oil is great for treating dry skin on the scalp (aka dandruff) and since it has antibacterial and antifungal properties, it also helps protect the scalp from fungal infections—two prime causes for hair loss. At the same time, it deeply moisturizes the scalp with fatty acids and helps stimulate circulation in the scalp to improve hair growth.

Use #2: Smooth Dry Ends
As previously mentioned, this stuff is pretty much the key to silky hair! Apply warmed castor oil to dry ends to trap in moisture, leaving hair thicker and healthier.

Use #3: Make DIY Mascara
Using castor oil, beeswax, and charcoal powder, create your own natural mascara (or apply it to lashes alone) for thicker and darker lashes.

Use #4: Thicken Brows
Due to said magical hair-growth properties, castor oil can also help thinning brows. Apply daily with a spoolie brush and make sure it penetrates skin beneath brows as well to see thicker brows in just a few weeks.
