How to Apply Eyeliner (Pencil)
Pencil eyeliner gives the eyes a softer definition than gel or liquid, is easier to smudge with control, and for newbies is much easier to apply than the other two options. When it comes to the modern pencil eyeliner, we have two choices: automatic or traditional, both of which have their ups and downs.
With automatic eyeliner pencils, the obvious plus is that you never have to sharpen it, eliminating both the need of a sharpener and all of the mess that comes along with it. They come in a plastic pen-style applicator and when you use up the head, you simply twist the base to bring up more product. The downside of not being able to sharpen an eyeliner is that unless you maneuver it in certain ways with each use (or on your hand, which would be wasteful), the head of the tip will become flat after just a few uses, making the liner thicker on your eye and therefore a bit harder to control the outcome. By nature, automatic liners are not as soft or creamy as the traditional pencils, so if you're looking for something a little more tough or if you're experiencing bleeding with your traditional pencil, try an automatic and let us know how you feel about the difference. But keep in mind that a tough liner means it's a little rougher on the eye, which we all know to be a very delicate area, so a good way to loosen up a tough liner is to warm it up with your breath (no joke).
Traditional pencils, on the other hand, have a greater presence on the market which means you have more choices (always a good thing) in color and texture. The downside of this type of eyeliner is that if the eye is not prepped properly, the creamier types can bleed- either on the lower lash line or around the eye. In order to prevent this, use an eyeshadow base (even if you are just wearing liner) set with powder. This will allow the liner to adhere to the base instead of your eyelid, which if has the tendency to get a bit oily around mid-day is not the best option. Because of their less rough nature, traditional pencils glide easier on the inside of the lower eyelid, and if you have sensitive eyes you need to be mindful of tearing when applying liner to this area of the eye.
So, how to apply? The first thing to remember is to be extremely gentle when dealing with the eye area, as it is very sensitive. Pulling the eye taught in order to get a nice, clean line may be the easiest way to go but it certainly is not the best so try to avoid doing this at all costs. Instead, using your opposite hand very gently pull the lid up, instead of out, and make short strokes with your pencil. Start at the center of your eye and move out towards the outer edge then draw in the other direction, from the center to the inner corner.
Since we are using a pencil eyeliner, the line can tend to be slightly thicker than we would see if using liquid or gel liners. If that is the look you are going for, wonderful. And if not, we can still use pencil liners to achieve the look you are going for.
For a thinner line, use the pencil sideways so that it is essentially parallel to your lid. This forces you to use a lighter hand, and therefore you will get a lighter and thinner line. Another trick to get a thinner line is to draw the line halfway between your lid and your lash line. Since only half of the pencil will be hitting your skin, you'll get a much thinner line.
Of course, another option would be to smoke out or smudge the liner. In order to do this, apply the liner as messy as you want to the upper lid (and for a fully smokey look, the lower lash line and lower water line) then take a smudge brush, clean eyeliner brush, or even a cotton swab and blend out the harsh color and line of the liner you just applied. You can move it up on to your lid to wear it as a shadow or keep it close to the lash line.
One of my favorite techniques is tightlining, or invisible eyeliner, which is most easily and effectively done using pencil eyeliner (waterproof, preferably). We will be lining the upper portion of the inner lash line, starting in the center and moving out, then coming back to the center and moving in. To get to the area, use the end of a brush or a clean finger to gently push your lid up, exposing the wet area. If you are trying it for the first time, it may tickle and your eyes may water a bit but both of those things dissipate with time.
Who knew you could get so much out of one product?

Easy Do It Yourself Hairstyles
One of the simplest and easy hairstyles to maintain is a short trendy hairstyle that is easily manageable, looks sexy and is often in fashion. You can part and style it quite easily with styling products. Alternatively you can scrunch dry it by scrunching up the hair in the palm of your hand under a blow dryer to give more volume in the hair.
On short to medium length hair, a simple and quick hairstyle may be to pin back your hair with some side combs. If you have more time, putting in some rollers the night before should give some pretty waves in your hair the next day that can be worn loose and also pinned back if required. When exercising or in a hurry, the classic ponytail is always a winner.
Another fast and quick hairstyle that you can do your self at home, is pigtails or also plaits. If you have more time, or another person handy, an elegant style that keeps the hair off the face is by doing a fishbone braid. You start this by plaiting the hair in the middle of the scalp, and adding an extra piece to all 3 sections of hair from the outside parts of the head, and then by joining it onto the middle plait.
If you're going out tonight and need a neat hairstyle, another easy one is the classic bun. This is a quick, classic and elegant hairstyle that can be achieved by tying the hair into a tight pony tail and wrapping the ponytail around and pinning the spiral of hair to the scalp.

Beauty and the Beast by Marie Leprince De Beaumont
Fairy tales have continued to fascinate and enthrall generations of young minds over the decades. Perhaps one of the most popular of all time is the story of the "Beauty and the Beast".
This fairytale is basically about Bella who is a loving daughter to her father. Her father one day goes travelling to some unknown land where he encounters the Beast who lives in a mansion. He promises to send him his daughter in exchange for his life. When Bella hears about this from her shaken father, she agrees to leave for the Beast's castle to serve him as per the agreement between it and her father. The castle is a magical place where the pots and pans are alive and can speak to each other. Bella is welcomed warmly by the mansion's occupants i.e. by all the kitchen wares and the furniture. Then she meets the master of the Mansion who is the Beast.
Unlike its scary physical appearance, the Beast is a gentleman and a kind figure who welcomes the girl into his household. Although he has a volatile temper, he never loses his etiquette and this charms Bella who herself is an extremely kind person. Love sparks between them and a romantic tale unfolds that has captured the minds of many readers for decades. A story is incomplete if it does not have its own share of challenges that the characters must deal with and it is no different with this fairy tale. The villagers decide to kill the Beast and come out in all strength to fulfill their purpose. At that point of time, Bella is granted permission by the Beast to visit her father but when she returns she finds her love in a terrible shape. After persuading the villagers to leave the castle alone, she begins to tend to the wounds of the Beast but it seems it is too late to save it.
Then as a final act of farewell she plants a kiss on the Beast that is actually a kiss of true love. The Beast is transformed into a handsome prince and all the kitchen pots and pans into human beings. The complete story then unfolds about how a curse had been placed on the castle and its inmates and how only a kiss of true love could ever lift it. As all happy endings then, the prince marries Bella and brings in her father to live with them happily ever after.
Beauty and the beast is a wonderful children's classic that shows the reader that maybe it's best to view the world and people within it with an open mind and perhaps its better not to discriminate against other people.

Trendy Fashions From the 1980s
Eighties fashion trends, what's currently referred to as retro fashions, were one of the more unusual aspects of that particular age, and those styles are still a common fashion trend even these days. A single vital factor which was behind this fashion revolution within the 80's was the development of Music Television (MTV). Most term the fashion sense of the 1980s as wild, while a few think it's very trendy. Eighties fashion trends without the wildness is what we see today within the fashion circle.

Pink sweaters, puffy shirts, cotler pants and trench coats were extremely in style and many of the ladies wore this look on various occasions. Vibrant colors, particularly neon shades, were a favorite of the 1980s fashion trends. Additional eighties women's clothing included the still common bat wing sweater, shell suit, leg warmers and leggings, crop tops, off shoulder shirts and mini skirts. The paint splatter fashion will additionally be one of the 80s trends which are now currently in style.
Neon shades were the more sought after within the 80s, be it accessories, shoes or clothes. Gladiator sandals, metallic and solid low shoes, pumps, and pointed stilettos were the more common shoe trends for ladies of the 80s.

From the beginning of time, men and women have cared for their hairs. No doubt women were always more possessive about their hairs and had a concept of beauty, adornment and attractiveness. The Ancient Egyptians were known for their attention to beauty and cleanliness. Since about the 4th century B.C they have used knives, hairpins and combs and later in the 3rd century B.C Egyptian women starting using hair extension and artistic wigs. Women there were more conscious about the length and thickness of their hairs. They believed that long and thick hairs look beautiful and add on to their personality.
Later in between the 1500 and 650 B.C, the Greeks developed their unique hairstyles and the most well known hairstyles n the 500 B.C. was the "Green Knot". The Greek women used to hold their hairs together and form a knot at the neck, called the Green Knot. Since then buns and knots were in fashion. In the same period Greeks also used saffron to lighten their hair.
Hairstyles were not only the concern for Greek women but the Greek men also had great concern for the same. Short and curly hairs for men were the most known hairstyle. New and various fashion trends came up and later between 500 B.C and 500 A.D the Romans added various adornment to their hairstyles. These decorations were made of gold, silver and ivory.

White Face Paint and Makeup for Halloween Events
People often go out of their way to find the best costume for celebrating the Halloween. Most know that the costume cannot be complete without props and accessories so many would also try to find the best one that would complement their outfits. The overall appeal of the costume would also be much better with makeup. Some people would think that it can only be useful for scary costumes but this is not the case.
A container of white face paint, for instance, can be used for varied costumes. The most common would be for vampire getups such as Dracula. It can also be handy for completing the Victorian look. The paint can be used on the face and neck before putting on some pink blush and some blue eye shadow. It would certainly have a different effect on any Halloween fancy dress. Queen Elizabeth is another character that would have a lot of use for face paint. A costume of Queen Amidala from Star Wars would also look more authentic with thick makeup. Face paints make many other Halloween costumes look better as compared to a person who chose to go with the usual type of makeup. Those are more difficult to work with particularly because of the subtle tones. It is more wasteful in the sense that many applications are needed before showing any satisfactory results.
As long as people are creative in how they use costume makeup, it can compensate for what the costume is lacking. For kids who are coming as faeries and other mythological creatures, glittery face makeup can be generously used for the costume to look more whimsical. The truth is that there are even people who use face paint alone for their costume. For instance, a man can paint himself in blue all over and he transforms into Doctor Manhattan of Watchmen. Another can choose to paint himself in white all over and that person is transformed into the character Powder. The same type of paint is also used to create wrinkles for making the face look older. Another way of using face paint is by deepening muscles with brown paint so the person looks like their muscles are more toned. For scary costumes, paint can be used to create bruises, scars and wounds. For instance, people who want to come as a vampire can mix a bit of green face paint to the foundation.
There are many other Halloween accessories but none would be as effective as face paint. It would be best to have a trial session so that people would know what kind of effect they want. They can also have a look at makeup tutorials to know how to use face paint. People who are willing to experiment can also resort to buying a few colors and mix those themselves. This would be ideal for people who wish to save on their Halloween makeup. There are face paints that come in pencil form and liquid form but the most practical is the one that comes in cake form. The wide selection of colors of face paints would allow people to achieve the perfect look for their costume.
