Proper application of foundation

Makeup foundation is a flesh toned cosmetic applied on face to create a uniform color complexion and sometimes it totally changes natural skin tone. Makeup foundation feels very heavy on your skin and in fact it can last for whole day if properly applied. If your face and neck skin don’t match then everyone takes its notice and you feel embarrassment. Here are some tips for proper application of foundation and if you follow the below mentioned tips then your foundation can last for whole day:

Before applying foundation clean your face with cleanser of your own choice and water. You should also apply toner and moisturizer. Take some time for picking out right foundation and concealer for your skin. Choose lighter shade concealer as compare to foundation. If you are using liquid foundation then always shake bottle well before applying.

Apply concealer on your dark circles. Apply foundation primer on face, there are various brands of foundation primer available in market but you will choose one which comes in form of gel. The gel foundation primer will glide smoothly on face and give lighter effect as compared to other foundation primers.

Apply foundation on your face with the help of your finger tips or foundation brush. Don’t use sponge because all your makeup will end on sponge instead of your face.
At the end apply pressed powder with gentle patting motions. Patting action gives your skin a longer lasting effect of foundation because this action will press the foundation into your skin. Now you will get a long wearing, smooth, flexible and light feeling.

Watch your mouth....words can be forgiven not forgotten

Words are not only for communication. Words can act as weapons. These weapons can hurt more than physical weapons. Suppose somebody injures you physically. You can get that treated. But if somebody hurts your heart with words, you can never get treated.Every relationship works on words.Any word that is not deserved hurts badly -especially if such words come out of the mouth of your partner,family or friend.

Sometimes we speak without realizing the hurt we are giving to the other person.Our emotions makes us forget that we are talking to a human being with a heart.In proverb 12:18:19 The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.Words can hurt like a wound caused by a piercing sword.Words are powerful, they constantly affect our environment.Our lives today are a reflection of our previous words and thoughts.Your words reveal the truth of your thoughts, your heart, and your beliefs.

The energy attached to your words will manifest itself in your life and become your fence line.There are real consequences to the words we speak, Whether our words are about hatred, ignorance, gossip, or humor, our words influence us and people around us.

17 ways to ♥ yourself

1. Fall in love with yourself
Think about what makes you You. Just like a flower that needs watering to grow, learn to nurture yourself in every way. Love yourself for all the good that you see and accept your flaws and the fact that you are imperfect. This does not mean that you do not learn to change from your shortcomings; instead, you are being gentle and kind to yourself despite all your “flaws”. Look in the mirror and fall in love with the reflection that is You.

2. Eliminate Self Criticism
 Do you often berate yourself over the tiniest thing? Is there a little voice inside your head that often tells you that you are no good because you are stupid or make mistakes. If you find that you criticize yourself often, make an effort to stop the self criticism.

3. Be Kind and Positive
When you start to think kindly and positively about yourself, the love you have for yourself just grows. Make it a habit to praise yourself everyday, while in the front of the mirror. Because of such thoughts, you naturally undertake empowering actions that support your development.

Global report-death rates 'higher' among young adults than children

Premature deaths are now more likely to occur in adolescence and early adulthood than in childhood, a new global report claims.The new study shows death rates among young people have fallen dramatically over the last 50 years across the globe.Mortality in children aged one to nine has fallen by between 80% and 93%, thanks largely to fewer deaths from infectious disease.Death rates have not been dropping as fast among teenagers and young adults.In young men aged 15-24, mortality has dropped between 41% and 48%, again largely because of success in combating disease.But 'injury', be it violence, suicide or road accidents, has emerged as the biggest killer of young men in all regions, and the biggest killer of young women in rich and eastern European countries.

Violent deaths are on the rise in both young men and women in real terms.This means that although mortality has fallen overall, it is now higher among teenagers and young adults than in children.Young men aged 15-24 are now two to three times more likely to die prematurely than young boys aged one to four, the researchers claim.

Breast feeding for longer help babies develop bigger brain

Study shows strong correlation between brain size and maternal investment.The longer the pregnancy and breast-feeding lasts, the bigger the species' average brain size and the longer they live, the researchers say.The study looked at the average pregnancy term, breast-feeding length and brain size of 128 species of mammals. They saw that between different species brain size at birth was determined by the length of pregnancy, while the brain growth after birth was determined by breast-feeding duration.Other life-history theories had speculated that large brains increase life span because of the increased intelligence that comes along with it. Instead, the new study shows that the link lies between the extra cost in time and energy invested by the mother and the development of large brains increases the life span of these species.For example, the killer whale has one of the longest pregnancies at 15 months and breast-feeds offspring for another 18 months. Their brains can reach over 300 cubic inches (5,000 cubic centimeters), or about the size of a mini-keg of beer. This extended period also leaves more time for learning and play."The link is all to do with the cost of growing a large brain, and not so much with the benefit of having a large brain," Barton said. "Chimps and other great apes have pretty protracted periods of development and pretty large brains.

Tips for winter hair care

1-Wear a scarf, hat or cap to protect your hair from the cold and wind. Make sure that it's not so tight where it will restrict circulation in your scalp

2-Have your ends trimmed regularly. Never underestimate the power of a good trim! The air outside is going to make your ends split and break more than usual, and trimming regularly is vital to keeping split ends contained.

3-Use a conditioner daily.The cold, dry air tends to suck moisture out of your hair, leaving your ends parched and dehydrated. This causes them to be more prone to splitting. You can fight this by employing a strict conditioning regimen.

4-Once you have your hair moist, lock in the moisture by running your hair through cold water; this will also give your hair an extra shine.

Coffee may reduce the risk of heart failure

Hey java drinkers, that coffee buzz you love so much may also help prevent heart failure, according to a new study published in the American Heart Association's journal Circulation Heart Failure.

While many believe coffee drinking may be dangerous to the heart, researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston said moderate of your daily consumption  could be beneficial.

Coffee has received a bad reputation in the past for its influence on the heart because animal studies have shown that drinking caffeinated coffee is associated with acutely raised blood pressure.

The American Heart Association currently recommends that heart failure patients drink no more than one to two cups of coffee or other caffeinated beverages per day.

People who are at risk for heart failure who are moderate coffee drinkers should not be told to abstain."

Coffee is not the enemy, and heart failure is not a mystery.

There isn't solid proof. But there are signs of potential health perks -- and a few cautions.

Bayern book home final ......CR7,Kaka missed the penalties

Bayern Munich will meet Chelsea in the Champions League final next month after beating Real Madrid 3-1 on penalties.

Real had claims for a third penalty of the evening turned down moments later as instead Esteban Granero was booked for going down under pressure from Neuer.

Ronaldo, Kaka and Ramos all failed from the spot to hand the Germans a place in the final on May 19.

Chelsea's miracle at the Camp Nou

Chelsea survived the dismissal of captain John Terry to record a 2-2 draw at Barcelona and book their place in the Champions League final with a 3-2 aggregate victory.

Sergio Busquets put Barca ahead and, after Terry's dismissal, Andres Iniesta gave the hosts the aggregate advantage. Lionel Messi hit the bar with a penalty and then struck a post before Fernando Torres scored late on.

Chelsea produced one of the greatest escapes in the history of European football tonight as they survived the sending off of John Terry to win an astonishing Champions League semi-final with Barcelona.

It looked certain Messi would end his Chelsea hoodoo but, incredibly, he smashed his effort against the crossbar.

Secret of incredibly soft skin...

Natural skin care treatments are a great option for those concerned about potentially harmful chemicals in their skin care products. Some natural botanical ingredients improve your skin's texture and appearance. You can customize treatments according to your skin's needs. Next time, look for skin care treatments in the kitchen instead of running to the store.

Soft skin tip 1 : exfoliate your skin
One popular beauty product is scrub. Scrubs are made with various ingredients, some better for certain body parts than others. Salt scrubs, for instance, are great for elbows and knees where skin is thicker and requires a coarser product. The salt granules hold up longer in water , so you can be sure you’re getting the job done!

If your skin is sensitive or extremely dry, sugar scrubs are a great choice.These smaller, rounder granules dissolve quicker and leave skin smooth and flake free.

Real Madrid seal Clasico win

Cristiano Ronaldo netted the winner as Real Madrid opened up a seven point gap over title rivals Barcelona with a 2-1 win at the Nou Camp.

Real defended well after Sami Khedira had given them the lead following an error from Victor Valdes. As a corner came in, Pepe's header was palmed out into the danger zone and Khedira swooped to hack home as Carles Puyol could not clear.

Barcelona attacked and missed two great chances when Xavi and then youngster Cristian Tello got a sight of goal, but equalized in the 70th minute as substitute Alexis Sanchez bundled the ball home from close range.

It was 1-1 for only a few minutes as Mesut Ozil released Ronaldo who turned on the afterburners to get away from the defenders and slot past Valdes for his 54th of the season.

I am so, so tired of being yelled at

Dear leaders

I'm tired of being yelled at by my boyfriend. We have been together for over five years and he is my first boyfriend.

1. He makes fun of me constantly (and says he's teasing).

2. Calls me lazy.

3. Ignores me when I tell him about my day or my problems then continues to talk about himself non -stop, refuses to help me in a crisis yet expects me to be there for him at the drop of a hat.

4. Worst part is he thinks he's right and that he is the perfect boyfriend. I have forgotten what it must feel like to be in a good, happy relationship.

5. He gets extremely angry at me for things, that don't even make any sense. when he gets mad or calls me mean names too, and insults me, hangs up on me, yells at me etc beside he's very stingy.

6.He controls our money we hardly go out for dinner he counts every penny getting sick of him.

I know I don't deserve to be treated so disrespectfully but what are my options other then leaving? How can someone really believe acting the way he does is healthy?

Yikes! I'm curious about how you respond when he does this.
