8 make up tricks you need to know

Think you know everything there is to know when working with makeup? Think again, because the quirky tips will completely change your routine. Today, we at Kamdora bring you some good tidings, which we believe would be helpful details for you,from methods that make your products last to tricks that enhance their effects, there’s something for everyone!

Trick 1. Making your makeup last longer:

Lightly wet your makeup brushes before you apply foundation; not only will you look more radiant, but your makeup goes further. You can even try this on eyeshadow for a little dewy sheen, and soon you’ll realise you’re getting through a lot less of your makeup.

Trick 2. Turning every lipgloss into a plumping lipgloss:

The only downside to plumping gloss? We can’t get it in every shade – these sultry gems are few and far between and often boast just a few colours. So, instead of spending on a colour you don’t love, simply amp up your favourite gloss; a few small drops of peppermint oil will give it a pout-pumping fix. Pow!

Trick 3. De-oiling your oily bits:

Gucci Westman’s oil-busting trick may sound a little bizarre, but if you want to create a smooth, matte finish, this fix really does work. Get some anti-perspirant on your fingers and blot it into your skin; it de-slicks T-zones and under-eyes without the cakiness of a powder.

Trick 4. Lengthening your lashes:
Limp lashes? No problem with this talcum powder technique, which makes the most of your mascara by adding volume and length. Apply your first coat of mascara, then dust on some talc (or any powder) with a blusher brush while lashes are wet, before adding another glossy black coat that pumps up the thickness pronto.

Trick 5. Hiding hungover eyes:
Hangover, late night or just a case of flu? Fake being your bright-eyed best with a dab of white pencil. Placing it in your waterline neutralises the angry red, and instantly makes your eyes look bigger throughout the painful fatigue.

Trick 6. Getting everlasting lipgloss:

If you want to get a few more wears out of your running-on-empty gloss, pop the tube in a glass of warm water and sit for 10 minutes. The warmth will melt the gloss from the sides that’s become stuck over time, so you’ll be able to keeping using without losing a drop.

Trick 7. Brightening up the ol’ eyebags:
Salmon pink tones are perfect for cancelling out deep, dark circles, but many concealers are too yellow to reap the benefits. Add a little coral lipstick to your usual cover-up to neutralise the purple and blue and brighten the under-eyes.

Trick 8. Applying concealer – correctly!:
If you’ve been dotting concealer under eyes, you’ve been doing it all wrong; a triangle shape from will block out dark tones when circles are bringing your down. Think of your lashline as one side of the triangle, and take it down from there, coming to a point at the tops of your cheeks then gently blending in.

Kim Kardashian Has Done It Again By Piercing North’s Ears

Originally posted on The Hype TV Show:

The argument about piercing one-year-old girl’s ears returns with the latest decision by Kim Kardashian to get her daughter North’s ears pierced. North West has just recently turned one and as a birthday present Kim got her ear pierced. Now we all know that Kim and the entire Kardashian family are always the center of some controversy but is this really that big of a deal? Many celebrity mothers have been scrutinized for piercing their daughters ears for example when Angelina Jolie took her daughters Zahara and Shiloh to get their ears done. For years mothers have been getting the daughter’s ears pierced at a young age without much thought about it. Most of the time we, (myself included), don’t even remember it happening. So if the child won’t even remember the event or the pain when they get older, why is there so much controversy?

Living In Your 20′s

Originally posted on A Daydream Love:

 To all my 20 somethings, this point in your life is extremely crucial.

  What happens in your 20′s? Typically you fall in love, and not a puppy, lovey dovey love, but the “this is the one” kind of love. You attend college, or you find a job. Then you graduate and in the meantime you get engaged and start planning a wedding. Once you graduate  you then get married, find a career if you have not already, becoming a wife/ husband and preform all the duties necessary for keeping up your marriage and then one day you find out your pregnant and all Facebook sees is the worlds greatest accomplishments by a 20 something year old. Sounds pretty typical. However, what Facebook or the social media sites don’t see is the harsh reality that tales every one of your accomplishments. You fall in love with “the one”, but your social…

Originally posted on Style News - StyleWatch - People.com:

When we first saw Nicole Richie‘s purple hair, we assumed the star made the big dye decision all on her own. (She happens to be one of Hollywood’s biggest trendsetters.) But, she says, it was actually her 6-year-old daughter Harlow Madden who pushed her to go for the pastel hue.

“[Husband Joel Madden] has been coloring his hair for as long as she can remember so that is something that is normal to her,” Richie told PEOPLE. “She asked me, ‘Why don’t you ever dye your hair?’ — and so we did it.”

10 side effects of eating cucumber

Who wouldn’t like to munch on the crunchy, cooling cucumber? Add it to your salads, pasta, or sandwich or just grill them with a seasoning of your choice! You can even bake them like your favourite potato chips! Though it offers a wide array of goodness, it also has many side effects. An embarrassing belch and an itchy skin are two of the most commonly reported negative impacts of eating cucumber.

10 Side Effects Of Eating Cucumbers:

Just read on to know what more unwelcoming reactions your favourite veggie gives, which in turn will help you find an alternative way of enjoying it.

1. It Could Prove To Be Toxic:

The presence of the toxins, such as cucurbitacins and tetracyclic triterpenoids in cucumber is a thing to worry about. Studies have proven that these elements trigger the bitter taste in these wonderful veggies. Researches point out that consuming cucumber beyond moderation could even be life threatening.

2. Excessive Loss Of Fluid:

Cucumber seeds are the source of cucurbitin, an ingredient that is known to possess innate diuretic properties. Even though the diuretic nature is mild, excessive intake could prove to be less harmful for you. When ingested in large quantities, this diuretic ingredients result in excessive elimination of fluid from your body, hampering the electrolytic balance. In extreme conditions, it could leave you gravely dehydrated!

3. Side Effects Of Excessive Vitamin C:

Vitamin C is an immune boosting element. Plus, it plays a major role in preventing and combating various health conditions, including flu and scurvy. It is also a powerful antioxidant. Nevertheless, exceeding the recommended limits come with its own set of harmful effects. Vitamin C, when ingested in extremely large quantities, acts like a pro-oxidant against its innate anti-oxidative nature. This, in turn, triggers the growth and spread of free radicals. And, when free radicals roam around, you will be at a higher risk of cancer, acne, premature aging, and so on.

4. Harmful For Renal System:

Hyperkalemia is a medical condition that arises due to the presence of high potassium content in the body. It leads to bloating, abdominal cramps, and intestinal gas, initially. The condition worsens over the time, hampering the functioning of the kidneys in an effective way. This, in turn, puts your renal system at the risk of succumbing to damages.

5. Watch Your Heart:

Cucumber, as you all know, contains more than 90% of water in it. And drinking excess leads to excessive ingestion of this fiber loaded veggie. The higher the water intake, the higher the net volume of blood will be. This, in turn, exerts pressure on the blood vessels and on the heart. The result – your heart and blood vessels will incur unwanted damages. Excessive presence of water could also create an imbalance in the electrolyte levels of the blood, which actually causes the seepage in cells. This will lead to frequent headaches and obstructed breathing.

6. Milk Allergy:

This sounds weird, but true. Many a time, farmers use wax to coat the skin of these fragile veggies to safeguard it from insects as well as shipping damages. Wax is made up of numerous ingredients, including milk casein, soaps, and ethyl alcohol. People who are allergic to milk can demonstrate an allergic reaction to milk casein as well.

7. Bloating And Flatulence:

Cucumbers, as mentioned above, contain an ingredient called cucurbitacin. This element can trigger indigestion in certain people, especially if they have a sensitive digestive system. Indigestion triggers bloating and flatulence, which your body tries to eliminate in the form of burps and farts. If you form gas in your stomach by eating onions, cabbage, and/or broccoli, then it is advisable to restrict the consumption of cucumbers as well.

8. Oral And Skin Allergy:

Study conducted by the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology on the allergic reactions of cucumber on human beings suggest that people who are allergic to ragweed pollen, melons, chamomile tea, bananas, and sunflower seeds could also experience allergy after consuming this green skinned veggie. Even though cooking or grilling cucumbers could possibly remove this threat, it is better to substitute zucchini for the same to avoid allergies.

9. It May Cause Sinusitis:

If you have sinusitis or any kind of chronic respiratory conditions, then it is advisable to stay away from eating cucumber. If Ayurvedic practitioners are to be believed, the cooling effects of these veggies aggravate such conditions, leading to complications.

10. Cucumber During Pregnancy:

While cucumber is generally considered safe during pregnancy, there are certain conditions which could make you uncomfortable if cucumbers are consumed excessively.

  • The diuretic nature of these veggies will trigger frequent urination, leaving you irritated and uncomfortable.
  • Cucumbers are good sources of fiber and hence, uncontrolled portions could leave you bloated. You might also experience a distended tummy along with abdominal pain.

Tips To Avoid Thses Side Effects:

Here are a few handy tips that you could try to avoid the aforementioned side effects of eating cucumbers.

  • Wash the cucumber thoroughly under running water.
  • Ensure to remove the peels of the cucumber to safeguard yourself and your family from the toxins hidden on the peels.
  • If you find that raw cucumbers are giving you a tough time, then try sautéing or grilling the same.

The saying ‘too much of anything is good for nothing’ seems to be quite appropriate here. The ideal quantity of daily intake varies from person to person.
