*Reduce puffy eyes by splashing with cold water or applying a cold compress (ice cubes in a washcloth): 15 seconds on, 15 seconds off.
*When you put on mascara, don’t lower your chin—that’s how mascara gets on your lid.
*Get eyeshadow to stay in place by priming lids with moisturizer and foundation.
*Always use your ring finger to apply moisturizer or concealer to the eye area. It puts the least amount of pressure on the skin.
*Never put mascara on lower lashes; it casts a shadow on your undereye, making the area look darker.
*Open up eyes: Apply a light eyeshadow (like ivory or gold) just above the lashline and along inner corners of your eyes.
*Stop pencil eyeliner from smudging by applying powder shadow (in a matching or slightly darker shade) over the pencil.
*Switch to brown mascara for a softer look for day.
Getting a ton of breakage and split ends. What can I do?
A: “Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!” says Monahan. “Dry ends split and break off, but you can prevent severe snapping by putting a humidifier in your bedroom to boost the moisture level in the air and getting a trim every six to eight weeks,” she advises. “Your diet also plays a role in keeping your hair strong,” says Kingsley. Fill up on strand-fortifying protein twice a day — have an omelet for breakfast, snack on a handful of almonds, or add a cup of leafy green vegetables, like spinach, to your lunch or dinner.
If you’re doing everything you can to moisturize your locks and you still have breakage, try an intensive deep-conditioning treatment at home, Apply a rich hair mask, then wrap and Using the warm setting on your blow-dryer, slightly heat up your head so that the conditioners will penetrate deeply into the cuticle,And rinse out ..For seriously dry hair, leave the mask on overnight so your strands have more time to suck up the moisturizers.
Try this mask for stronger, shinier hair, says White: “The two most important ingredients in any hair mask are protein and moisture, so get the maximum one-two punch with egg whites for protein and coconut oil for moisture. Mix together in a bowl and heat for 30 seconds in the microwave. Apply to damp hair for at least 15 minutes and then shampoo out and enjoy the shine!”
Because pumpkin is packed full of potassium, it is a great source for promoting hair regrowth. It’s also rich in vitamin A which is great for the scalp. White recommends this recipe:
