I stumbled across the following photo on facebook. I am not a makeup fundi. This will be a good guideline to the ladies (or men) on how to apply eye shadow. Hmm.. I usually use 2 shades of colours but hey you can use more than 2 or 3 to enhance your eyes. The photo below depicts 9 sections whereby you can differentiate your colours and apply.

Great Housekeeping Tips

 

I was reading these cool tips on the local newspaper and would love to promote it by publishing it on my blog 😉

 

1. Clean Burnt pots by filling with water, adding some bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) and boiling for a few minutes. In fact, any kind of food acids (eg vinegar) will remove the stains.
