Q1) I am a married woman and wear a bindi every day. For the past few months, the skin below the bindi feels very scratchy and itchy and I can see tiny eruptions which have started to hurt as well.
Ans: You are definitely allergic to the glue under the bindi. Many women are allergic to this glue irrespective of the brand used, so why not try out the idea of learning how to make non-toxic cosmetic glue at home.
Consult a skin specialist and start using an antibiotic ointment to heal the eruptions on your skin.
Alternatively, try a liquid or powder bindi which may take some extra time to apply but will save your skin from any infection.
Q2) What do you think are the biggest turn off in makeup that can surely be avoided.
Ans: Every woman wants to look more attractive and pretty when she wears her favourite makeup.
With a few simple and deliberate tips kept in mind, you can avoid many makeup blunders.
* Obvious and excessive makeup can look terrible.
* Cakey makeup comes next on the list.
* Garish colours which don’t suit your personality are a big ” no-no.”
* Foundation, concealer and powder if mismatched with your skin tone can be a big turn off in makeup.
* Lipstick on the teeth can actually ruin your entire look.
* Makeup that has come on to the neckline and collars of your clothes can look awful.
* Visible lines between makeup and actual skin colour can be detrimental to your entire look.
* Wrong colour selection and too much blush can be a disastrous turn-off.
* Eye makeup looking different on both eyes can be an immediate turn-off.
Q3) I have thin short hair which falls very flat on my face and lacks volume. I do not have any hair fall so dense hair is an unachievable dream for me and although I have had this hair cut and style for years, I wish I could change something about this boring look.
Ans: Start by washing your hair with a volumizing shampoo to get some lift in your hair at the roots. Since you have had the same look for a while maybe it’s a good idea to experiment with something different in your existing short hair. It is a myth that short, thin hair cannot have volume in fact a good haircut in a short length can look very stylish.
The best way to add volume to thin hair is to create chunky layers in your short crop. The skilled hairstylist will understand your need for change as these layers will add volume to flat hair immediately and some texturising in the inner layers thereafter and around the face will create softness and give your final look a fabulous feel of fullness and volume in the hair.
