AFTER MY CATARACT SURGERY TWO MONTHS BACK, MY OPERATED eye looks much smaller than the other one. The doctor says this will open up gradually and I will lose the hooded look I now have, but if it does not, cosmetic surgery can set it right. Can you please give me some cosmetic tips to make the smaller eye match the other one? I want to avoid surgery by all costs.
Hopefully, your eyelid will lift gradually and your eyes will match each other in size in a short time. Of course, there are some make-up tricks which can help you.
Use liquid eyeliner on both eyes, starting from the inner part of eye and moving towards the outer edge which make the liner thicker. On the smaller eye use more eyeliner towards the outer edge so that it makes it look larger.
Even eyeshadow should be used more on the smaller eye to make it look more open, to match the other.
If you curl the lashes on the smaller eye, it makes it look larger.
Use false lashes which will make eyes look dramatic and large and distract from the uneven sizes.
Try these tips and you will not notice the asymmetry in the eyes.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BRONZER AND A BLUSH? Please tell me how to use a bronzer. I am 25-yearsold and my face is rather dull and pale. I want to brighten my appearance a bit. Help!:
The chief difference between the two is that a blush gives a plump, ripe, sexy look to the face, especially on the cheeks. A bronzer, on the other hand, is used to contour the face.
The bronzer also gives the skin a sun-kissed look, and it comes in both liquid and powder forms.
It is most convenient to use a soft bristled brush to apply it.
It should be used after you apply face foundation, concealer and powder but the blush comes on later.
With a sweeping movement, apply the bronzer along the hairline, upper forehead, just below the hairline and just below the jawline. It is applied by experts in the inverted number 3pattern to help them. Blend carefully to avoid harsh demarcation lines, using a little translucent powder if needed..
A bronzer helps to add drama to a pale complexion, so it could be ideal for you. A little practice will make it very easy to apply. Avoid using too much; it is better to make it sparingly to give a natural look.
THERE ARE SOME SMALL GREYISH GROWTH ON MY neck. Are these warts? How can I get rid of them? It is best you consult a doctor to find out just what these growths are, for these could be skin tags too. Warts are caused by a virus and are most common on hands and feet, and their appearance implies a low body immune system. So, boosting immunity with good nutrition is the best way of preventing their infection.
There are some home remedies for treating warts: apple cider vinegar, baking powder, aspirin, tea tree oil, etc. It is best to use the medication which a doctor prescribes.
Warts are basically abnormal growth of skin cells caused by a virus called the human papilloma virus. It is contagious and can spread from one part of the body to another, or from person to person by skin contact.
The ones you have on your neck seem to be filiform warts, which usually have several threadlike projections.
Don’t worry; these are easily treatable and except for the cosmetic discomfort, are usually harmless.
PLEASE CAN YOU HELP ME GET THICK EYEBROWS? MINE ARE sparse and thin. I would love to have lush brows which are much in fashion these days. If you have always had thin sparse brows, it must be a genetic trait. Do others in the family also have this issue?
Apply a thin layer of pure castor oil on the brows at night. Massage lightly. Wash off in the morning. You can even apply a little on the eyelashes. Castor oil is known to aid hair- root rejuvenation.
Use a little matt eyebrow powder on the brows and blend well into the skin. This will make the brows seem thicker. Pick a shade which matches your hair colour closely. For a more permanent fix, you can get tattooing done to fill up the brows. This procedure will have to be repeated periodically perhaps, if needed.
WHAT IS A FACIAL SPRAY? HOW IS IT USED? It is one of the hottest beauty product in the market, and is simply an aerosol which delivers a misty spray of clear water, sometimes perfumed lightly, distilled and fresh, on your face.
It is perfect for a quick fix to freshen face, when it feels hot and dehydrated. Of course, splashing water on the face is also a definite freshener, but this leaves your face very wet and also messes your make-up.
The facial spray sends out a gentle mist which avoids all this. Further, when you want to use moisturiser, spray your face first and then apply it, for best results. It will seal in the moisture effectively too, and discourage dryness of skin.
