Coconut, Sesame and Curry Leaves for your Hair.

I can’t even begin to say how much this mixture is amazing. It really does wonders.

Let me start with the benefits of this mixture and then I will add the recipe to this mixture at the very end. It is super simple, all you need is commitment.

Benefits of this Mixture for the Hair-

  • It repairs damaged hair roots by supplying essential nutrients to your hair and scalp.
  • Curry leaves contain beta-carotene as well as protein that reduces hair loss – drastically.
  • Antioxidants contained in curry leaves help revive dead hair follicles, stimulate them and promote hair growth.
  • Curry leaves contain Vitamin B which is helpful in restoring the natural color of your hair.
  • Prevents premature greying of hair and impart radiant texture to your hair.
  • Vitamin B6 contained in curry leaves act in an effective way to strengthen the hair.

. I managed to have my hair grow in less than a year, my hair is no longer dry have dry and feels heathy, soft and thick. So let’s do this đŸ™‹đŸ» Recipe for Coconut, Sesame and Curry Leaves 🍃 

  • 100ml – 100% Pure Coconut Oil
  • 100ml – Sesame Oil
  • Put on very slow gas. Add to this
  • 2 handfuls curry leaves 
  • Heat till just before curry leaves turns black.
  • Cool and Strain.

 Remove from flame, cool, strain and bottle. Apply on hair by massaging your scalp downwards to the ends of ur hair. Preferably to leave over night and shower in the morning, but you can wash it off after a minimum of 30 minutes. P.s smell goes away xK-003

How do I apply it – I usually do it 2 -3 times a week before my schedule for washing my hair, which is every 2-3 days. After preparing the mixture I start with applying it on my scalp, massaging it all around. I then add more of the mixture to start applying down my hair, from the roots all the way to the tips. Then, after I am sure I covered most of my hair with the oil I tie my hair up in a bun and wait for at least one hour before washing it.

Ways to wear White Eyeliner…

It could seem a little scary if you don’t know how to use it. But why White?? It’s actually a secret weapon for making your eyes look brighter and wider, Here are ways to wear your white liner:

  • As a Liner
    Instead of lining your top lid with a thick black, try using white. Since white eyeliner is bright, this will create a noticeable, dramatic look.

  • Double Eyeliner
    Draw a white line on your top lid twice as thick as you would normally apply eyeliner. Next, apply black or brown liner on top of it with a line about half as thick. This will create a double eyeliner look that makes your eyes stand out without being as dramatic was a white-only liner look.
  • Shimmer the Inner Corner
    You can use white eyeliner to highlight the inside corner of your eyes to brighten your look. Starting from the corner, fan out about a centimeter on the top and bottom lid. Your eyes will appear brighter, improving your overall look. A big fan of this look is Blake Lively.
  • Brow Bone
    Highlight your brow bone by swiping the white liner directly underneath the brow then smudging it along the brow bone.
  • Conceal the Imperfections
    Hide a blemish by applying white eyeliner to it first, then cover it with concealer. The whites will counteract the red of the blemish to create perfect coverage.

P.s you can always go for a more beige liner if you want to tone it down, but can be used the same way.

2- Don’t over do it: if you are worried about how the color might come off, you can start with a little burgundy shade in the outer corner of your eye and blend it with your eyeliner.

3- Dare to smoke it: the burgundy eyeshadow can act like a Smokey eye effect only with a different shade, you can smoke it out and control the intensity of the shadow depending on the look you are going for.

4- Mascara or Lashes: the don’t of the burgundy eyeshadow look, never leave without applying false lashes or lots and lots of mascara to frame your eyes.

5- Keep it Simple: Try to keep everything else simple, avoid applying any reddish tones, such as blush. Switch up the blush with some highlighter and tone it down with the contouring.

Highlighting 101 … Strobe Away

Strobing is a technique that only uses light to enhance your face, no bronzer or dark powders involved here. Basically, you’re taking all of your usual contouring steps, but just ditching the part where you carve out your features and heading straight for the highlighter stick. This approach to makeup is supposed to mimic what it’s like to be under bright, flattering lights using illuminating products.

97f2ec179b34ce318bb28617d7728523Avoid using anything matte in your routine as this will just dull down the strobing-tutorialresults. Use highlighter to enhance where light would naturally hit your face, which for most of us is across the temples, cheekbones, and bridge of your nose. If you’re afraid of looking oily, avoid putting any highlighter on your forehead. If you’re lighter skinned, opt for champagne colors, while darker skin tones will look stunning.

Fuse your skincare and makeup together as much possible for a dewy, wet-shine finish. For example:

1) if you use concealer add moisturizer to it.

2) Add shine to the areas of your face that catch light naturally, like your cheekbones, bridge of the nose, or temples.

Some Illuminating Products:- M.A.C Strobe Cream (Cheat: for the lazy girls out there, it does the strobing for you, by just applying the cream itself). Benefit Cosmetics: Benefit Girl Meets Pearl, also from Benefit: Benefit Girl Meets Pearl. ,  Charlotte Tilbury’s Highlighter Wand and NYX cosmetics Illuminating Stick.

KKW Powder Contour

kkw beauty kitAlthough KKW contour stick got really bad reviews. I honestly believe that the second product of Kim Kardashian is not so bad after all. The Powder Contour Kit in Medium is the one I own.

I loved it, I haven’t used the bronzer shade yet (I found it too dark and has an orange undertone which is not a favorite look of mine).

The compact is divided into four squares, each big enough to dip a bronzing/ contouring brush into aside from the brush that comes with it. The first color is a highlighter, creamy off white in color. Which I love the most, I apply it in the inner corner of my eyes, bridge of my nose and under my brows. It gives off the perfect shimmer illusion.

Second square is the concealer setter (that has a little bit of shimmer / if you like to set your concealers with that), a pale ivory shade that works.

The powder is super pigmented. Last but not least is a neutral taupe brown with no orangey tones blends extremely well, stays put and actually looks very natural even when heavily applied.

I apply this brown tone with no foundation sometimes if I’m in a hurry and need a little bit of contouring, it stays put and the color does not change tones when applied with foundation or without.

The KKW Powder Contour is great for beginners, and if you’re into a nice highlighter shine then this kit is for you. If she sells the highlighter on its own, I think it would be amazing !! I loved it more than other brands I tried, and would definitely continue using the highlighter, the contour part, well there are other brands too.
