Heard of the eyebrow mascara?

 Why is it used? 
If you've been in love with supermodel Delevingne's thick eyebrows, the eyebrow mascara is your best bet. They not only control unruly eyebrows but also make them look attractive. 

Clear or tinted? 
Eyebrow mascaras are two types - clear and tinted. Clear ones are good for those who have naturally lush eyebrows while tinted ones work better for women who want to enhance their light brows. 

How to use it? 
First cleanse and tone your face and go onto applying your regular makeup like a foundation or a BB cream. Then use the wand to apply the mascara directly on to the brows combing in an upward motion. Fill the empty spaces but don't overdo as you don't want to make it look unnatural.

Homemade face packs for tan removal

Homemade face packs for tan removal

Sure you have waited for long to go for that vacation and enjoy a little tanning session. But then when you come back home you realise that the little tan sessions went too ahead leaving you with tanned hands, face and practically the whole you. So here are certain home remedies which will help you to get rid of tanned skin

1. Cucumber, Rose Water and Lemon Juice: While lemon acts as natural bleach, cucumber and rose water acts as cooling agents. In a small bowl take a table spoon each of cucumber juice, lemon juice and rose water and mix in well. Apply the mix with cotton on tanned areas and keep it for about 10 minutes. Then wash it off with cold water. Apply this pack every day after you get back home from the sun.

2. Gram flour and turmeric mix: Mix two tablespoons of gram flour with a pinch of turmeric, a tablespoon of milk and a table spoon of crushed orange peel in a bowl with cold rose water. Apply the mix on clean face and let it dry for about 15-20 minutes. Once the pack dries, slowly remove the pack by scrubbing gently in clockwise and anti-clockwise direction; the exfoliation effect will help in removing the tan.

3. Oat Meal and Butter Milk: While butter milk is an excellent source for soothing skin and healing blisters and oatmeal is a great natural scrub. In a bowl mix two tablespoon of oatmeal with three-four tablespoons of butter milk and apply on tanned areas. Gently massage in circular motion; let it stay for 15-20 minutes and cleanse with water.

4. Milk and strawberry: Not only is this combination a healthy one, it also helps in improving skin complexion and reduction of dark spots, freckles and even pigmentation. Take four-five crushed strawberries and mix it with two tablespoons of milk cream and apply it on face. Let it stay for about 20-30 minutes. Rinse it with fresh water.
