Is blow-drying with your head flipped upside down really better?

Anytime you move your roots against their natural growth direction and apply heat with a hair dryer, your hair will start to perk up. So yes, it is better for getting more volume. However, there are easier ways to get the same result. For best results, tousle your hair with your free hand while drying it. Apply a volumizer at the roots and comb it through to your ends. For curly-hair, the upside-down blow-dry is perfectly safe as long as you take a few precautions. Prep your curls with a ringlet-enhancing styler or, if your ringlets are very coarse, a good leave-in conditioner. Place a diffuser attachment on the dryer, flip your hair upside down, then instead of tousling your hair, just hold it steady with your hands and scrunch gently. When it’s just about dry, flip your head back up, shake the roots a bit to loosen the curl, then let air-dry completely.

Eyeliner is a very important part of any woman’s makeup regiment. It’s almost like having cookies, and not complimenting them with milk. Some women teach themselves how to apply certain markups just by trial and error. Sometimes this is not the best practice. Here is an easy method you can use to apply Eye Liner.

The Beauty Tips has come up with 3 simple steps to apply Eyeliner with ease. Following these simple steps almost insures that you too can apply Eyeliner correctly the first time. Here are the steps as listed:

Step 1: Draw a thin line, try to draw as close to the base of your eyelids as possible. Start from the inside corner of your eye and work your way out. If you are not expert in drawing one long line all at once, do it in short strokes.

Step 2: When you have finished lining, lightly smudge (blend) the line you just drew. It will make the line smooth so that it doesn’t look like a distinct line.

Step 3: Experiment with lining the bottom of your eyes the same way for a more dramatic look. When lining your bottom lids, go in the opposite direction: start from the outside corner and work your way in.
