Smoky Eye Tutorial for Blue Eyes

So, you’re hitting the clubs this weekend? And you want to dazzle everybody who’s present. Well, with a great smoky eye and the lovely shade of blue in your eyes, it dazzling will be a piece of cake. Here are 5 tips how to raise smoke when you enter a room just by doing a great smoky eye.

1st Tip

What most girls are wrong about when they have blue eyes is the colour of the shade they should use. The contrast to blue is not black – it’s actually brown. Black mascara and black eye shadow will only make you look trampy or, best case scenario, like an emo kid. And no one likes emo kids.

You will need eye shadow and a kohl pencil or, for the drama effect, an eye liner. Of course, mascara is a must.

2nd Tip

Hide the traces of sleepless nights. Use concealer to hide your under eye bags. Of course, you need to do your eyebrows. If they are to thin, apply some eye brow pencil. The better your eyebrows look, the better the final outcome of your make-up routine. Eyebrow have a huge influence on how you look.

3rd Tip

Draw the contour of your eyes with your kohl pencil. Just draw around the outer angles for the right effect, because if you draw the entire eye it will only make your eyes look smaller. And no one wants that. If you’re going for liquid eyeliner, make sure your hands are still and not shaky. The rest is the same as for the kohl pencil.

4th Tip

Light blue and silver eye shadows

Apply some eye shadow around the corners of your eyes – there’s no need to use a brush. You can just smudge it on with your fingers. Fingers really are the best make up tool ever made! Put the eye shadow over the eye pencil.

5th Tip

Of course, all this would be useless without mascara. Apply a good, thick layer of mascara right after doing all of the above.

Honey, you are now set to go out! Now, when you go out and see all those suitors – don’t rub your eyes, Cinderella!!! It’s all for real and it’s not because of your smoky eyes or your amazing lips.

Sure, the eyes and the make-up may have helped – they always do help a ‘bit. But it’s all how they help – they give you the confidence to shine your true inner beauty that you have. Everybody can do a smoky eye – it’s easy.

But it’s the ability to see the world and its best view, with or without the smoke, that will make you the greatest beauty of them all, the belle of this ball we call life.


7 Essential Tips on How to Apply False Eyelashes Easily

Long eyelashes can make your eyes appear bigger and wider, and make you look more glamorous, sexy and inviting. Unfortunately, not all of us have been blessed to have such luscious and gorgeous lashes.

Fortunately, there are many different types of false eyelashes that can solve all of your beauty problems. With just a little bit of practice, you’ll be able to brighten up your eyes in less than 3 minutes!

Here is a short guide on how to apply false eyelashes easily, quickly and successfully.

False Eyelashes Options

You can either choose a full set of false lashes or opt for small clusters of individual lashes.

For a more natural look apply individual lashes, as they are perfect for filling out your own sparse ones. If instead you want to achieve thicker and fuller looking eyelashes, opt for the full set of lashes.

Tips and Tricks on Applying False Eyelashes Easily

1. Make sure that your eyelids and lashes are perfectly clean, and if necessary pour a small amount of astringent, or toner, onto a cotton pad, and gently wipe over your eye area to remove excess oil.

2. Apply makeup on your eyes as you normally would. A thicker eyeliner line will cover the gap between the false lashes and your natural lash line, and ensure that the skin doesn’t show. Now, curl your lashes and apply a coat of mascara. This will help your natural lashes to blend better with the false ones.

3. Use your tweezers to gently remove your false lashes from the box. Place them on your lids to check whether they are too wide or too long for the shape of your eyes.

If they are too long, trim them, making sure to leave them longer towards the outer corners of your eyes. Never cut them straight across, but try trimming each individual lash at a different length to give them a more natural appearance.

If they are too wide, just snip off a few hairs at one end, or cut a tiny section of the outer edge with a pair of small scissors. Test again and trim more if necessary, until they perfectly fit your eye shape and size.

4. Using a toothpick or a fine makeup brush, or any other similar tool of your choice, apply the glue along the base of your false lashes. Don’t squeeze it directly from the tube, because too much product will come out. Add a little more glue to the edges of the lashes, as the glue tends to wear off more easily at the corners.

Wait for about 30 seconds before applying false lashes to your lids, or until the glue becomes tacky.

5. Use your fingers to apply the lashes on your eyelid as close as possible to the base of your natural lashes. Press down firmly, especially on the outer corners of the strip. Using a sponge eye shadow applicator, go across the band and press lashes in place to ensure good adhesion.

Wait for 30 seconds to 2 minutes until the glue dries completely.

6. Apply another thin coat of mascara, or use an eyelash or eyebrow brush to blend your eyelashes into the false ones.

Insertion of false eyelashes

If there are any gaps between your natural lash line and false lashes, cover them up, by using a dark liquid or pencil eyeliner.

7. If applying individual lashes, squeeze a small amount of glue onto foil or any hard surface, and use tweezers to dip the tip of each eyelash into the adhesive. Let the glue to dry for a minute or until it becomes tacky.

Use tweezers again to insert individual lashes between your natural lashes as close to the roots as possible, making sure to space them evenly and naturally across the lash line.

Hold the glued lash in place for a few seconds to allow it to adhere well. Let it to dry for a couple of minutes, and then curl your lashes with an eyelash curler and apply a few coats of mascara. This will make falsies to blend well with your natural lashes.

Now you are ready to go out and infatuate everyone you want with your fabulous eyes! Let us know in the comments below!

Get Smooth Legs After Shaving in 5 Easy Steps

Many girls experience this same problem – after you shave your legs, your skin gets all dry, itchy and not very pretty. Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be that way. Your legs could be perfectly smooth, and beautiful, after shaving. Find out how.

There is no big secret to this issue, really. You simply have to follow these 5 easy steps and everything will be just fine.

1. Start with Peeling

The whole process should start with you giving your legs a good peeling treatment before you shave them. You can do this with a special scrub shower gel.

This should be done for two reasons. First, the peeling will remove all the dead skin from your legs, which will make them smoother. Second, it will release most of the ingrown hair.

2. Use Special Shave Creams

Most of us shave our legs with the same shower gel we shower with. Although there’s nothing wrong with this practice, if you’re looking for really smooth legs, it’s better to buy special moisturizing shave creams.

I’ve tried a lot of these and I personally find Gillette Satin Care Shave Gel Sensitive Skin with Aloe Vera to be the best one. It might not be your cup of tea, but if you haven’t tried it yet – give it a try. It really makes your skin smooth.

3. Invest in a Good Razor

It’s not like razors are super expensive, but really, don’t buy the cheapest ones. Those that cost a few bucks more are those that give you smooth legs after shaving.

I would always choose a razor with cartridges. To be completely honest with you, I don’t have a scientific proof that those razors are really that better, than the disposable ones. However, I do have years of experience that say that those razors are sharper, they last longer and they shave better.

4. Don’t Rush

Yes of course, you sometimes really need to shave your legs in a hurry, but try not to make this a general practice. Instead, take your time and shave your legs slowly.

I always start with a hot shower. Hot water actually makes your hairs softer, so they are easier to shave. Apply moisturizing shaving cream, and shave your legs carefully, paying special attention to your ankles and knees.

These regions are the easiest to nick, and no one wants red scars after every shaving. Don’t press the razor against your skin – the only result you can get is nicking.

5. Moisturizing in the End

In order to get a perfect shave and have beautiful smooth legs, your shaving has to end with applying moisturizer. No excuses about this one – you are doing some damage to your skin when you’re shaving, and that damage needs to be repaired.

You can choose to buy special after shaving moisturizers, but I personally haven’t noticed any big difference between them, and the lotion I usually use. Of course, if they work better for you, you can safely use them. I’ve been using Garnier lotions for years now, and I’m quite satisfied with them – especially the one with Shea butter. It is great for dry itchy skin, and it gives me smooth skin too.

That’s it – it’s all you have to do in order to get smooth legs after shaving. However, if you happen to have an extra advice to share, feel free to do so. I’d like to hear what your solutions are.

6 Best Shaving Tips for Women

Women all over the world remove body hair, usually for cosmetic reasons. Many decided to stick to the least expensive method – shaving. Still, shaving comes with certain drawbacks – learn how to avoid them and make the most out of it!


Despite so may different hair removal methods – waxing, depilatory creams and even laser hair removal – many women remain faithful to the quickest and the least expensive method – shaving. Read through these shaving tips and learn how to avoid all the drawbacks shaving might have.

1. Soften Your Skin

Softening your skin before shaving is a must. You don’t want to dry razor dead skin, so make sure your skin is soft enough before shaving. Run yourself a warm bath and soak in it for a while. Once you feel your skin is soft and smooth, feel free to start shaving.

2. Exfoliate

It’s always better to get rid of the dead skin cells by exfoliating than to let them clog up your razor while shaving. Use an exfoliating glove and/or a body scrub and a cloth to exfoliate before shaving.

3. Use a Shaving Cream or Gel

Even though there are so many scented shaving creams for women, the truth is that there isn’t a huge difference between these and those for men. Men shaving creams are amazing moisturizers, so use one of those if you have particularly dry skin. Avoid using aftershaves, for they can irritate your skin and cause a nasty rash. Use products with aloe vera or a lubricating shaving gel for the most sensitive regions.

4. Find a Good Razor

It’s going to be a while before you find the perfect razor. If you have sensitive skin, it would be a good idea to use a razor that has lubricated strips. Talk to your friends and ask them to recommend a few. If you’re still not sure which one to try out – the Gillette Venus might work.

5. Change Razors

There’s no better way to get a nick than by using a dull blade. Change your blades on a regular basis and never borrow another person’s razor.

6. Moisturize

Shaving will dry out your skin, so it’s important to rehydrate it after shaving. Use a moisturizer or oil to moisturize. If you feel like certain parts are too dry, apply some extra baby oil to those areas.

WCW Of The Month – February

My WCW of the month February is Oprah Winfrey. She inspires me alot, I think she every dark girl’s role model.

Anyway, here is a little biography about Oprah.

Oprah’s Beginnings

American television host, actress, producer, philanthropist and entrepreneur Oprah Gail Winfrey was born on January 29, 1954, in Kosciusko, Mississippi. After a troubled adolescence in a small farming community, where she was sexually abused by a number of male relatives and friends of her mother, Vernita, she moved to Nashville to live with her father, Vernon, a barber and businessman. She entered Tennessee State University in 1971 and began working in radio and television broadcasting in Nashville.

Winfrey launched the Oprah Winfrey Show in 1986 as a nationally syndicated program. With its placement on 120 channels and an audience of 10 million people, the show grossed $125 million by the end of its first year, of which Winfrey received $30 million. She soon gained ownership of the program from ABC, drawing it under the control of her new production company, Harpo Productions (‘Oprah’ spelled backwards) and making more and more money from syndication.

Activism and Charity

According to Forbes magazine, Oprah was the richest African American of the 20th century and the world’s only Black billionaire for three years running. Lifemagazine hailed her as the most influential woman of her generation. In 2005, Business Week named her the greatest Black philanthropist in American history. Oprah’s Angel Network has raised more than $51,000,000 for charitable programs, including girls’ education in South Africa and relief to the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

MCM Of The Month – February

My MCM of the month February is Nelson Mandela. Even though he is no longer with, he will always be one of my favourite African’s presidents. 

Here is a little biography about Nelson Mandela.

Early Life

Nelson Mandela was born Rolihlahla Mandela on July 18, 1918, in the tiny village of Mvezo, on the banks of the Mbashe River in Transkei, South Africa. “Rolihlahla” in the Xhosa language literally means “pulling the branch of a tree,” but more commonly translates as “troublemaker.”

Becoming actively involved in the anti-apartheid movement in his 20s, Mandela joined the African National Congress in 1942. For 20 years, he directed a campaign of peaceful, nonviolent defiance against the South African government and its racist policies. In 1993, Mandela and South African President F.W. de Klerk were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to dismantle the country’s apartheid system. In 1994, Mandela was inaugurated as South Africa’s first black president. In 2009, Mandela’s birthday (July 18) was declared “Mandela Day” to promote global peace and celebrate the South African leader’s legacy. Mandela died at his home in Johannesburg on December 5, 2013, at age 95.
