Beauty FAQ’s

Q.1 I love my blue liquid eyeliner but within a few hours it looks all smudged and I need to re-apply it. I have tried a soft pencil also, but somehow just land up with dark eyes in sometime. Is there any remedy for this?
Firstly, try not to moisturise around the eye area just before wearing eye makeup. You can continue wearing your favourite eye liner or pencil with two minutes of extra effort. Once the liner has dried, trace over the line with a powder eye shadow in a matching shade to seal the eyeliner in place. This will make it smudge proof and longer lasting.

Q.2 My hair is rather limp so I’m looking for a fuller look with some wave in my hair. I am a little apprehensive to go in for a permanent treatment and I was wondering if there is any temporary way to check out the result of perming before I actually decide to perm my hair and how long does a perm last?
A soft perm should last you from 6 to 8 months depending on your hair texture.  The tighter the perm the longer it lasts. Perm does not go away altogether in one go but unwinds itself slowly over a period of almost 8 to 10 months. You can consult your hairdresser and go in for a low damage perming wave which will last only about a week before going in for the actual perm. The secret is to avoid the final neutralising step  whereby the result is not permanent. If you like the results your hairdresser will lock them in or else you enjoy the look for a few days and your hair will soon be back to normal.

Q.3 What is the best way to apply a leave in conditioner and how do they help?
Leave in Conditioners as the name suggests are left in the hair and not rinsed out.  They are applied from the mid lengths to the ends of the hair after a good shampoo avoiding the scalp. If you are the kind of person who does not like to shampoo too often then you can just use a leave in conditioner on wet, towel dried hair for a fresh feel. These conditioners are designed to retain moisture, reduce the static condition and add shine to the hair. Leave in conditioners work well for fine hair too as they avoid conditioner overload and leave the hair soft and shiny. They are very convenient to use and have the added benefit of forming a protective barrier when hair dryers or any heated appliances are used on your mane.
