10 Beauty Hacks Every Girl Should Know

1456477334988-1.png

There are plenty of obstacles to overcome our daily hair and beauty regime. Frizzy hair, chipped nailpolish, smudged mascara, none of us are a fan of these.  So i did a little research and came across some of these hacks which are super easy. Here are 10 tricks that will make your life easier …..

Take your eye makeup from a sleek daytime look to something sexier by smudging your liner with a cotton swab to diffuse it into a smokey eye look.

Hide a manicure thats growing out by creating an ombre effect starting at the base of your nail. The best way to distract from a chipped overgrown nail is GLITTER. It looks pretty and lasts for a long time.

To get rid of your makeup quickly all you need to do is apply coconut oil or a cold cream to your face and massage it for 2minutes. Wipe the face with a cotton swab or a face wipe and wash with your regular face wash.

Nearly everyone suffers from dreaded mascara marks on our eyelids whilst applying. Place a spoon with the curve above or below the lashline to help avoid mascara residue

Chipping of nails can be very irritating, espicially when theres some big event coming up. To prevent nails from chipping keep your nails coated with a good quality nailpaint.

Eliminate puffy eyes by applying an ice pack for 5-10 minutes right after you wakeup

To accentuate long lashes use a cotton bud and apply baby powder to your top and bottom set of lashes. Once done, recoat the lashes  with mascara for fuller lashes.

To make the lipstick last longer, apply the lipstick, gently place a tissue paper on your lips and dab some pressed powder on the top on the tissue.

If you’ve washed your hair but dont have the energy to blow dry it, loosely twist your hair into a bun, secure it with a clip. When its dry untwist your hair and seperate the locks with your fingers for effortless waves.

Dry your newly painted nails super quickly by placing your nails in a bowl of ice cold water. The cold water makes the nailpaint settle quickly.

So i hope these 10 super easy beauty hacks have made your beauty regime a lot easier. If you found the post useful do give it a like and dont forget to hit the follow button for more.

Chocolate Cupcakes

cupppp.jpg

A week ago i suddenly felt the urge to try and bake some cupcakes so after a lot of hardwork and watching various YouTube videos  i finally baked them and to my surprise they turned out to be really yummy, i made it again a few days later with my own variations and they also turned out to be pretty good. So i decided to share this quick and easy recipe with all of you….

INGREDIENTS:

2 room temperature Eggs

1/2 teaspoon of Baking soda and Baking powder

1/2 cup of Buttermilk OR 1/2 cup of Milk + 1/2 teaspoon of Vineger

1 stick of Butter

2oz. of semi sweet chocolate

3 quarter cups of Flour

1/2 cup of Cocoa powder

Quarter teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon of Coffee powder (optional)

1/2 cup of powdered Sugar

1 teaspoon of Vanilla extract

 Vanilla Icing

PROCEDURE:

Take the stick of butter and the chopped semi sweet chocolate in a bowl and heat it in the microwave with 30sec. intervals until it melts properly.

 In a seperate bowl mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt and coffee powder.

In a seperate bowl crack in 2 eggs, add in the powered sugar and vanilla extract. Mix it well.

Add half of the flour mix to the mixture of eggs and mix it. Then add the buttermilk OR 1/2 cup of milk+ 1/2 teaspoon of vineger to the mixture and stir it well. Add the remaining flour mix along with the melted chocolate mixture and mix it well.

Scoop the mixture into the cupcake liners. (This recipe makes a dozen cupcakes.)

Bake it for 18mins at 350degrees in an oven. (i baked the cupcakes in a microwave for 3mins and it turned out really well )

Once the cupcakes are out of the oven let them cool completely.

I used readymade vanilla icing by Philsbury to ice the cupcakes and topped it with some shredded chocolate.

I hope you all find this blogpost helpful and i would absolutely love to see all of you trying this recipe and then sharing your opinions about it with me….Thankyou! 🙂 

Happiness Caged

About a month ago i subscribed to this website called Happiness Caged after seeing their instagram profile and many other bloggers posting pictures with it. I absolutely had no idea about what  goodies i was going to receive. All i knew was that the June edition was called Gossip Girl. So i finally received the hamper on 26th of June and i don’t know how but i surprisingly got all the things that i wanted. One thing that i found interesting about it is that every month they send you a cage of different size, shape, material, etc. So following are the things that i received…

1) Heart shaped pink lantern

This is my favourite out of all other goodies because i always wanted something like this for my room and it suits the decor perfectly. This was the cage for this month.

3 Homemade Face Packs That Will Make You Look Fabulous

We all want our skin to look flawless. But it is not always convenient for us to go to a parlour or a skin clinic and get all those expensive treatments done. We are always searching for easier and quicker options which give good results. Homemade face packs are the ones which can be made using basic ingredients that are available at home. These are cheaper and have no side effects. Following are the 3 face packs that i feel work wonders when it comes to healthy and gorgeous skin.

1) Honey and Coconut oil face pack

  • Things you will need – 1 tb/spoon Honey, 1 tb/spoon Coconut oil
  • What to do – Mix both the ingredients until you get a thick paste. Apply this mixture to your face and massage it for about 5mins. Leave this paste on your face for 30mins. Wash your face with luke warm water.
  • Benefits – Coconut oil has an anti oxidant property which helps your skin fight against free radicals making it an ideal ointment for the relief of dry, rough and wrinkled skin. The mixture of these two ingredients effectively brightens complexion, hydrates deeply and adds healthy glow to the skin.

2) Egg face pack 

  • Things you need- 1 Egg
  • What to do – Take an egg and separate the egg white from yolk. Apply the egg white directly to your face with a cotton ball. Let it dry for 10-15 mins. Rinse off well with plain water.
  • Benefits – Eggs prove miraculous in improving the skin tone, texture and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.

3) Milk Lemon & Turmeric face pack

  • Things you need – 3 tb/spoons of milk, 1 tb/spoon of lemon juice, a pinch of turmeric powder.
  • What to do – Mix all the ingredients together until it turns into a thick yellowish paste. Apply this paste on your face and wait until it dries (about 15 mins). Wash your face with plain water.
  • Benefits – Turmeric reduces oil secretion and also helps in adding a glow to the face. Milk acts as an excellent skin censer and leaves skin smooth and soft. Lemon juice helps in removing black heads and also helps to treat acne.
