Eat Yourself Beautiful.

There’s nothing wrong with a trip to Sephora or any other cosmetic store when you want to freshen up your look, but to really look your best you might want to consider a stop at market too. Research has found that certain foods can give you healthy, younger-looking skin and healthier hair.

What to Eat

Research has found that there is a definite link between your diet and your skin. From making your skin healthy to protecting it from sun damage, what you eat can certainly impact how your skin looks. The following will give you an idea of what foods to add to your grocery list so that you can get the glowing skin that you’re after.

·       
Yellow fruits and veggies. Image source- www.hqoboi.com
      Orange and yellow fruits and veggies

Fruits and vegetables that are orange and yellow contain beta-carotene, which is an antioxidant and source of vitamin A. It’s been shown that antioxidants protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals, which have been linked to the aging process.  The vitamin A you get from beta-carotene is also crucial for the production of an oily substance called sebum, which is created by the hair’s sebaceous glands to condition your hair and scalp.

With too little of it your scalp would be itchy and dry and your skin brittle and lifeless. You can get high amounts of beta-carotene from carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, cantaloupe, apricots, and oranges. A good rule of thumb when shopping for your produce: the more intense the color is, the more beta-carotene it contains.

·        
Leafy greens. Image source- feedmink.com
     Leafy greens

You can never go wrong with eating more leafy greens because of the impact they have on your overall health as well as your appearance. Leafy greens contain high levels of an anti-oxidant that also belongs to the category of carotenoids like beta-carotene, called lutein. It works the same way on your skin by protecting the cells from damage from free radicals. It’s been found to protect the skin as well as the eyes from UV damage; not as a substitution for sunscreen though. They also contain high amounts of fiber, folic acid iron, and other nutrients known to promote healthy hair growth. You can get the highest sources of lutein from leafy green vegetables, such as kale, spinach, and collard greens. Non-leafy sources of lutein include peas and leeks.

 Hello girls, This is a the very first time I am doing an eye makeup tutorial on this blog. I hope you'll like it and will give it a try when going to a party, wedding or any other occasion. It's a gold and and deep burgundy look. I have created this look using Maybelline Color Tattoo's in the shades Bold Gold and Pomegranate Punk.
So lets begin with the tutorial!
  • Prep your eyes with with a concealer. If your eye area is dry then before starting apply a good moisturizing eye cream like Himalaya under eye cream. You can also use a primer if you have one to make your shades look more pigmented. However, you don't need a primer while using Maybelline color tattoos. I filled my eye brows with Rimmel eye brow pencil.

  • Then I applied Maybelline Color Tattoo Bold Gold all over my eyelid using my fingers since I told you in my earlier post that these tattoos are difficult to be applied with brush. And after that I applied Pomegranate Punk which is a dark color onto my outer corner and crease and blended it with the Gold eye shadow using the blending brush. I also added a bit of the purplish/burgundy shade from the Lakme quad-let on top of Pomegranate punk. Plus I highlighted my brow bone with light creamy shade from the MUA palette.

First impression- 'Love Long Hair' Shampoo and conditioner.

'Love Long Hair' Shampoo and conditioner
Hey gals! How are you today? hopefully great. A few days ago I was sent a shampoo and conditioner for a blind test and now it's been a week and I have had 3 washes! This post is about my first impression regarding the shampoo & conditioner. Well, so far it's been a great experience.
This is not a proper  review that i do most of the time as we don't have the details- brands name, ingredient list etc. it's just a short post about my tiny experience with these products.
Honestly, I could feel a pronounced difference from the very first wash. The shampoo removed dirt and greasiness leaving my scalp and hair clean. On the contrary the conditioner managed to detangle hair and made them soft and shiny. Till my next wash my hair was surprisingly tangle free and didn't look as oily as it did with my previous shampoo.
It didn't weigh down my hair at all which i think is really good. Also the conditioner smells divine and the fragrance lasts until my next wash.

Related- Blind test....WOW I am loving it!

HOW DID I USE THIS?
Since there is nothing mentioned on the bottles of shampoo and conditioner concerning their usage. I just followed the very typical standard process of washing my hair. After shampooing I drained the water from my hair by squeezing my hair gently and then applied the conditioner permitting it to stay there for a min or so. Rinsed it with cool water and air dried. That's all. 

I can't actually believe the results being so good but I think I shouldn't hurry and test this shampoo and conditioner for few more days before arriving at the conclusion. And expectantly the PR will finally unveil the brand!
