  • Quick rescue for common beauty blunders

    Here are quick fixes to solve some major beauty problems in no time.

     

    Messed up while cutting your own bangs?

     

    You've got that stylish haircut after a long time, and in months, those side bangs have grown and how. So, you decide to chop them off yourself without denting your wallet at the salon, but sadly you botch the deed. Fret not! All you've got to do is apply an oil-based styling cream on your bangs, so the hair looks weighed down and thus, longer. Then blow dry that bit right down your forehead using a soft bristled hair brush. Another way to deal with the mess; side brush those bangs and clip it up with the help of a bobby pin.

    Tweezed brows till they got super thin?

     

    Yes, this can happen like many a times, and, we hate it, true. All you've got to do is use a soft textured eyebrow pencil of a colour similar to that of your eyebrow. Then fill in your brows, make sure you colour those gaps where there is no hair. Avoid the stenciled look, for which ensure using short, quick strokes, blending it with later with a brow brush. Continue this daily, till your hair grows back (which shouldn't be more than a week or two).

     

    Facial made those blemishes more visible?

     

    Soak a cotton pad in alcohol (one which has an antiseptic property) and clean the blemishes. (This might sting quite a bit). Also, if the spot is bleeding, wrap ice in a towel and apply it to the area. Avoid squeezing the blemish or else you're only going to damage that area by pushing the bacteria and pus deeper into the skin and rupturing the pore to allow a much-regretted scar on your skin. Sensitive skinned people are recommended to consult a doctor before trying any of these techniques.

     

    Hair colour gone too dark or too light?

     

    Correcting something like a colour goof-up is extremely tricky, so make sure you head to a salon even if it's a home-done error, unless you want to land yourself into more mess. Then again, if you want to correct it at home (urgent situations call for these); when your hair has ended up too light, apply a darker semi-permanent colour about half to one level deeper than the current colour. Choose a neutral or warm colour lest, you don't want to look having bleached tresses. When that hair has turned out to be too dark with colour, lighten it up using highlights.

  • Planning your wedding

    YOUR wedding is one of the most important times in your life.

     

    Once you have set a date, some things to consider are:

     

    Decide what sort of wedding you want and make up a budget. Some people spend all they have and even borrow to finance their wedding. Set a budget that you can fund without crossing a line.

     

    Set up a planning team, comprising close friends. You can brainstorm and they can go through all the pre-wedding stuff with you.

     

    Meet your partner’s parents and also for them to meet yours. You want to get to know your prospective in-laws beforehand.

     

    Pick a wedding date. Once everyone has pitched in and the coast is clear, pick a date that you can work with.

     

    Start planning your guest list.

    Start looking for venues for your reception. Venues get booked early.

     

    Shop for your wedding gown. You don’t want to leave this very important part of your big day to the last minute.

     

    Envision how the wedding will look like. What will you serve the guests? What entertainment would you like.

     

    Ask your friends to link you up with professionals you’ll need for your wedding including the caterers, emcee, the photographers and so on.

     

    Start drawing up a list of expenses for the wedding. You’ve checked out the venue you want to use. You’ve spoken to the people you’ll be hiring to work at your wedding. Start piecing the costs together.

     

    Make your bookings. You want to book with the DJ, the emcee, the band and any other people you intend to hire early. You also want to book the venue for the reception. The earlier you book with the people, the better.

     

    Pick wears for the wedding. Figure out what styles and colours your people will be wearing.

     

    Start planning your honeymoon.

     

    Go for pre-wedding counselling. Speak to an independent counsellor, not just your pastors.

     

    Purchase your wedding rings.

     

    Start shopping for the clothes you and your people will wear for the ceremonies.

     

    Decide what type of wedding cake you’ll want and book with the designer who will make it.

     

    Send out your invitations about two months ahead so your prospective guests have enough time to plan to attend.

     

    Book your stylist and figure out what hairstyle you’ll rock on the big day. Also book a makeup artist and do some trials to test out stuff.

     

    Apply for a marriage licence.

     

    Phone your bridesmaids and groomsmen and make sure they know how things are coming along.

     

    Create a wedding programme to hand out to guests.

     

    Iron out reception plans with the caterer and the other professionals.

     

    Give ceremony venue managers a schedule of delivery and setup times plus contact numbers.

     

    Get your hair done and get your outfits for the big day ready. Follow up with your groomsmen and bridesmaids to do the same.

     

    Make sure you’ve paid those you hired before the wedding.

     

    Give parents gifts.

     

    Remember to thank friends, family and workers who helped to make your wedding succeed at the reception.
