How To : Homemade Lip Scrub!!

Winter is almost around the corner in Karachi. In most of the cities and countries, winter has already started. In winter, you need to take care of your skin a little more than you do in summer. As much as you need to take care of your skin, your lips need extra pampering too. 
It is hard to find a lip scrub here. I have looked for it every where, but couldn't find one. So, I thought of making one myself.
Like your face and body needs scrubbing,
to remove dry and dead skin(specially in winters), your lips need it too. Lips are very sensitive and delicate, and for that you need light scrubbing/exfoliating. 
You need to exfoliate the dead and dry skin from your lips and moisturize it at the same time, so that when you apply lipstick, it applies evenly, without showing creases, lines or dead/dry skin.


What do you need to make a homemade scrub?
You need the following 4 things, which are available at your home always.


1. Sugar. (grinded) *not powdered*
2. Honey.
3. Vaseline. (optional)
4. Small jar and a spoon.


Yes, that is it :)


Method: 
Grind the sugar, do not grind too much to make it a powder. Castor sugar is the best option, if you have it. I didn't, that is why I used normal sugar. Add the sugar or castor sugar in the jar (the one in which you want to keep your scrub in), pour some honey and mix it with a spoon. Then add a little amount of vaseline (I used cocoa butter vaseline for the smell) or if you want you can add flavored lip balms or lip butters.
If you don't add vaseline or lip balm, you can scrub/exfoliate your lips, and lick the sugar and honey if you want. It will not harm you. I added vaseline, because after you wipe off your scrub, your lips will be soft and vaseline or lip balm will nourish and moisturize it.
Do not scrub too hard! Apply little amount of your scrub on your lips and rub both of your lips against each other, it will exfoliate with the speed it needs and will not be harsh on your lips.
Simple and easy!!
I am loving this scrub, and I exfoliate after every 2-3 days. Don't exfoliate your lips too much. Too much of everything is BAD.
I hope this was helpful. If you have any other way of HOW TO make a LIP SCRUB at home, please share it with us on my facebook page.

Review - Christine's Face Contouring.

Hello pretty girls!


Today, finally I am going to review about Christine Face Contouring powder. You girls have been requesting it for so long, but I wanted to try it and go out for hours, so that I can actually talk about it.
Let's get started!
This is the packaging of the contouring powder. It is available at Naheed Supermarket for Rs.250/
It will be easily available at any cosmetic's store, because it it not a high-end brand. 
This is how it looks like, it comes in different shades. At the back of the box, the sticker is of no.2, and at the back of the casing as you can see, it's no.1 :) Check the shade you want. I picked another one which had too dark brown shades. This one was the lightest. You can use this as a bronzer as well. I hardly use bronze because I look dark. But, for some reason, I am obsessed with bronzers these days and I want to try them from different brands. This is the first one I have and I kind of like it, as it is not too dark for me.

About the product:

L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Caramel Mania - Toffee Delice [Review]

I'm a person who loves experimenting things with my makeup and hair. When it comes to changing the color, I can try the bold colors to subtle ones. Lately, I've been obsessed with Ombre and full brown hair color. I prefer hair dying my hair at home and that's why I love and prefer shampoo dyes. If you are new, and you are changing hair color at home, it's the easiest way. All you have to do is mix all the contents in a bottle, shake well and start applying. Yes, easy as it sounds.



[Review] Krylon TV Paint Stick - Orange

Makeup not only enhances your features, but also hides your flaws too!
Hiding my dark circles and finding the RIGHT concealer for the under eye circles has always been a BIG task for me. I have tried quite a few concealers, from different brands; none of them matched or could hide my dark circles properly. Until I came across orange corrector by Krylon.
