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.

Farsali Volcanic Elixir – My Thoughts

I tried the first product of Farsali almost a year ago or so, few months after its release. I thought it was another beauty brand that just mixed a bunch of oils in a bottle and claimed it’s great for the skin. I was wrong, I loved it.

This time, I decided to try the Volcanic Elixir – and WOW.66950A7A-79EF-4C94-B8DD-7B73408BEF87

What this Oil is made of:

The oil is extracted from the nut kernels of the Tamanu fruit, which flourishes in the south pacific islands of Polynesia, due to the volcanic atmosphere. Volcanoes have a very good effect to the surrounding soil. The Volcanic ash contains minerals that are beneficial to plants and provide nutrients to the soil.

 

Benefits:

The properties in oil can help regenerate skin tissue. It also has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibiotic, and antioxidant properties, making it ideal for acne sufferers.
The Volcanic Elixir aids in regenerating new healthy skin. It can be used on acne and acne scars, dry and scaly skin, stretch marks, etc. The oil does have a strong scent (disappears few minutes after application).

 

Why I love It:

The Volcanic Elixir is a thick and heavy oil with a strong nutty aroma and yellow color. It is best to use this at night because of the strong scent and thickness of the oil. I either apply it before bed, or throughout the evening when I have a solid 2 hours at home. The thickness of the oil takes time to get absorbed and that is why you need to dedicate time for it.

I absolutely love the effect it had on my skin, it left my skin so soft and hydrated, sometimes I experience redness in my pores in my T-Zone area, but this oil manages to close the pores and reduce the oils that are extracted. I also have some scars and this oil also managed to reduce them, I’m in love with it.

Another plus is that I use a drop of oil on my lips, wait 30 minutes and then I apply a liquid lipstick, usually these lipsticks dry out your lips, so with this oil I don’t find any problems. If I feel my lips are still dry I re-apply the oil after I remove the lipstick.

. 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 🙋🏻 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.
