How to create an auspicious makeup look to ring in the New Year in 2020

Chinese face reading is an ancient practice that believes that one’s facial features can reveal their personality and predict their future. There is something comforting in knowing that you can figure out the secrets to your future just by looking at your face.

But what if you have features that are considered to be “bad luck”? Is your only solution plastic surgery to “correct” your face? Not at all. Instead of seeking out drastic measures, you can opt for using to makeup to temporarily change your facial features to be more auspicious. While it doesn’t last permanently, it might just be enough to help you ring in the new year with positive energy and better luck!

Here are tips on how you can use makeup to alter your facial features according to Chinese face reading to bring in prosperity and good health in the new year:

Well-balanced face

In Chinese face reading, a well-balanced, symmetrical face is one of the key indicators of prosperity, and one way to tell whether your face is balanced is to look at your selfie. We’re so used to looking at ourselves in the mirror, but a selfie, being horizontally flipped, will make the asymmetrical features on our face more obvious to our eyes.

While it’s nearly impossible to have a perfectly symmetrical face, you can definitely create the illusion with makeup by using contour and highlight to visually reshape the face.

The Chinese also believe that an overall smooth, clear and bright complexion is an auspicious sign. To create the look, use a foundation with a more natural finish to make sure your base doesn’t look cakey, and use a full coverage concealer to cover any spots and blemishes as needed. Highlighter will also help to bring more light to the face.

Prominent forehead

Chinese face reading favours a high and wide forehead as it indicates wealth and authority. This means you should go easy on the contouring as it could make your forehead look smaller. Instead, use highlighter to bring more attention and make your forehead appear more prominent on your face. While we generally try to keep our forehead from being too shiny, a little shine is okay as long as you use a good oil control foundation underneath.

Take care to not go overboard, though, as an overly wide forehead on a female may indicate troubles in your personal relationships!

Clear, bright eyes

The eyes are window to your soul and in Chinese face reading, they indicate your health and prosperity, especially in your late thirties. You will want to make your eyes appear as clear and bright as possible, which means covering up dark circles and staying away from heavy eye makeup. Instead, use bright colours with peach or pink tone for a more youthful look, and shimmery shadows to make your eyes appear bigger. If they are uneven in size, you can adjust with an eyeliner so they look more balanced.

It is also important to have eyes that are exactly one eye-width apart as it is considered to be the ideal distance. If your eyes are too far apart, use eyeliner to line the inner corner of your eyes to bring them closer. If your eyes are too close together, use a shimmery eyeshadow in the inner corners and go darker towards the outer corners.

Even eyebrows

Face Reading Eyebrows

As makeup junkies, we all know the importance of eyebrows in framing the face. Similarly, in Chinese face reading, eyebrows are a vital indicator of a person’s fortune and health. Eyebrows that meet or almost meet in the middle suggest potential misfortune, so make sure to get rid of any stray hair in between your brows. But remember to never pluck any hair above your brows, as that also brings bad luck.

Regardless of the shape of your brows, it’s important that they are even and well-balanced. If one of your brows is fuller than the other, you can draw the sparser one a little thicker. As you are not following the natural shape of the brow, use thin strokes to mimic real brow hair and make it look as natural as possible.

Round, rosy cheeks

Face Reading Cheeks

Unlike Western beauty standards that favour chiselled cheekbones, in Chinese face reading, full and round cheekbones are a positive sign indicating success in one’s life.

This means that you should not use too much cheek contour as it might make your face look more gaunt and bony. Instead, use highlight on the top of your cheekbones to make them appear more prominent. Add don’t forget to use a rosy tone blush with a glowy finish to bring even more vitality to your face.

Round, big nose with high bridge

Again, ease off on the nose contour as the Chinese believe that round, big nose is one of the strongest indicators of wealth and fortune, especially on a woman. However, make sure to cover any blemishes on your nose, which are said to block the “flow of money”.

You can also use highlight to create the illusion of a higher nose bridge, which suggests great health and vitality.

Full, well-shaped lips

Face Reading Lips

The Chinese believe that the lips represent one’s relationship with other people. Those with well-shaped, round lips are more charming and pleasant to talk to while those with thin lips tend to be argumentative or unreliable. To create the appearance of fuller lips, slightly overline your lips with a lip liner in the colour of your natural lips. A lip gloss can also help make your lips look fuller.

If you are using a lip liner, make sure to draw upward from the corners of your lips to give them an upturned look, which makes you look more agreeable and is said to bring good harmony and positivity to your life.

The colour of the lips, especially for women, indicates their vigor as well as the strength of their marriage. A rosy pink colour is said to be the best lip colour to sport.

Strong, firm chin

The chin is said to be where wealth is stored on a person’s face, so a strong, firm chin that is slightly protruding can indicate that the person is able to accumulate fortune and live a wealthy life especially when they get older. If your chin is small and pointy, add some contour powder underneath to round it out.

You can also use a concealer a shade lighter than your usual as well as some highlighter on the chin to make it look more prominent.

The post This Is What Your Zodiac Sign Predicts For Your Love Life During The Month Of February appeared first on STYLECRAZE.

What Every Single Zodiac Sign Should Embrace In 2020

With 2020 kicking in, a lot is being predicted about what the new decade has in store for us. Zodiac signs have always been a driving force for people who want to plan into the future and for people who want to know what is in store for them so they can be prepared. It is common knowledge that zodiac signs do not distinctively predict the future but give us an idea of how we can steer our lives in the right direction with the knowledge of our strengths and weaknesses.

There are 12 zodiac signs identified in Astrology. Based on the position of the moon, sun, and planets, each zodiac sign gives us an idea of the behavioral patterns, desires, and attitude towards our external and internal environment. The zodiac signs are aligned with the four elements of matter – air, water, wind, and earth, and different energies are derived from them to help us exercise our potential and positivity. Each zodiac sign is unique and makes for an exclusive personality in people. Let’s dive into what our birth signs say about this year and the array of possibilities it holds for us.

1. Aries

Being the first of the zodiac signs, Aries babies are known as trailblazers. They are passionate and independent. They have a fierce attitude towards life and are very competitive by nature. As an Aries, individuals find it difficult to express themselves frankly without coming off as rude. They are often misunderstood to be impolite and can tend to close off. This year, Aries should embrace their true feelings and allow themselves to express their emotions.

2. Taurus

Taurus

Taurus personalities make the most amazing and trustworthy friends. They value honesty and willpower. These individuals are smart and ambitious. They are extremely hard-working and tend to put a lot of pressure on themselves. They are quite hard on themselves when things do not go their way and forget to love themselves through their failures. 2020 will be a fruitful year if they accept their failures and stop punishing themselves through it. Instead, they should learn from it and keep moving forward.

3. Gemini

Gemini is known as the chameleon of the zodiac signs. They have two different sides that they present to the world. They are dynamic individuals and can fit into any circle of people based on the vibe they perceive. They are skilled communicators and are known to be diplomatic by nature. This year, they should embrace their differences instead of trying to fit in with the crowd. It is important that they be their true, authentic self rather than change according to their external environment.

What Is Your Spirit Animal, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

We’ve all heard of spirit animals. Most of us have taken quizzes on the internet to know what our spirit animal is, to understand if we share the same characteristics or if we can relate to its personality. But do we know what spirit animals are? According to some traditions, a spirit animal is a spirit that guides and protects us beyond the realms of the known universe. It is believed by some that our spirit animal has similar traits as us; others believe that we could be aligned through the stars, planets, and moon in ways that connect us beyond this world. Spiritually, it is believed that we are in synchronization where our energies are manifested onto the universe. In a metaphorical and humorous sense, even people are seen as spirit animals to others who admire or relate to them.

We connect to our spirit animals in a deep sense. The challenges we face in life, with our relationships and our well being, and how we bloom in the environment we are exposed to, are not that different from how animals handle the same situations.

Are You Curious About Bollywood Celebrities’ Speculated Marriage In 2020

Every year we’re hit with breaking news of our favorite Bollywood celebs throwing a lavish wedding to celebrate their nuptials. While most celebrities like to keep their love lives under wraps to avoid media scrutiny, this isn’t the case for some stars. Considering how long some of these celebrities have been dating for, it’s safe to say that a lot of their fans see marriage in the near future for them. From older celebrity couples to newer ones, let’s take a look at this list of speculated celebrity marriages:

1. Alia Bhatt And Ranbir Kapoor

Alia Bhatt And Ranbir Kapoor

Bollywood’s most infamous Cassanova might soon be tying the knot with his girlfriend, Alia Bhatt. The couple’s families are reportedly very fond of each other and are keen on the pair settling down. The families are in the talks for a wedding once Kapoor patriarch, Rishi recovers from his cancer treatment. However, if things stay true to tradition, Kapoor daughters-in-law are required to stop working as actresses after marriage. Ranbir’s mother, Neetu Kapoor herself went on a lengthy hiatus, only returning in 2009. We’re hoping Alia is an exception to this rule considering how fine an actress she is.

2. Patralekhaa And Rajkummar Rao

This adorable couple has been seeing each other for eight years now, and fans have been dying to see them take their #couplegoals worthy relationship to the next level. The two can be often seen making appearances wearing outfits that match and are incredibly supportive of each other. While they keep their relationship away from the public eye, we’ve seen them sharing adorable snaps of each other all over their grams.

3. Malaika Arora And Arjun Kapoor

Malaika Arora And Arjun Kapoor

This unconventional couple has remained super tight-lipped about their relationship as Malaika had very recently split from her husband of 18 years, Arbaaz Khan. Considering how Arjun Kapoor once saw Arbaaz’s brother, Salman as a mentor and even dated their younger sister, Arpita, this new relationship was considered pretty taboo. However, Malaika and Arbaaz seemed to have patched things up and were also spotted attending the Justin Bieber concert with their son. The two claim their main goal is to co-parent their son and be there for each other as friends. Considering how long Malaika and Arbaaz were married for, we doubt she plans on taking her relationship with Arjun Kapoor to the next stage just as yet. But one can never tell as stranger things have happened in the past.

4. Farhan Akhtar And Shibani Dandekar

Fans were heartbroken to know that Farhan and his wife, Adhuna Bhabani were calling an end to their 16-year-long relationship. The pair share two daughters and had been married since 2000. After the divorce was finalized, Farhan had been linked to many of his leading ladies from Shraddha Kapoor to Aditi Rao Hydari. However, the actor eventually went Instagram official with his gorgeous singer and model girlfriend, Shibani Dandekar. The much-in-love pair is often seen sharing cutesy shots of each other on their grams and has even walked the ramp together at Lakme Fashion Week. Anybody else hear wedding bells around the corner?

5. Varun Dhawan And Natasha Dalal

This pair has an epic love story for the ages. The two were childhood friends and have been dating each other even before Varun joined the acting industry. Natasha is a fashion designer by profession and has studied at the prestigious New York Fashion Institute Of Technology. Reports say that the couple allegedly started dating after they reunited at a music concert after years of not seeing each other. Despite keeping this relationship very private, the duo has been spotted leaving events across the city together. In interviews, Varun has stated that he likes to keep that part of his life private and that he doesn’t want to push her into the spotlight as she wants to live a normal life. Varun has admitted that he does plan on marrying her very soon. We’re hoping 2020 soon!

Top 10 best cosmetics brands for sensitive skin that you need to know today in 2020

Finding the right products for sensitive skin can be tough, especially when you have to be extra careful with what products go onto your face. What works for most may just end up causing breakouts on your delicate skin. This is why it is important to understand the ingredients and processes behind the products you use so you can minimise irritation.

Here’s a pro-tip: look out for the “hypoallergenic” label!

Products that are hypoallergenic are designed to reduce allergic reactions. While this does not guarantee that the product will definitely work on sensitive skin, it assures you that the products are free of ingredients that are common in triggering bad reactions.

If you are on the lookout for products that are less likely to cause any allergies or irritation, you’re on the right article. Here are 15 best cosmetics brands for sensitive skin that are hypoallergenic and raved about in the sensitive-skin community:

1. Eau Thermale Avène

Best Cosmetics Brands Sensitive Skin Avene

Eau Thermale Avène has a riveting history that dates back to 1736, where they first discovered the wonders of thermal spring water in the small town of Avène. A horse with severe skin disease was left to roam, and upon rolling in the thermal spring water, became completely healed.

Eau Thermale Avène incorporated the therapeutic effects of this thermal spring water in their products, creating a line of skincare that provides excellent efficacy, even for people with hypersensitive or eczema-prone skin. All of their products are clinically tested by dermatologists and are hypoallergenic. Some of their products are even gentle enough to be used on babies that are just six months old!

The most popular Avene product is probably the Avène Thermal Spring Water spray. Over 25 million bottles are sold per year, and this product has been recommended by skincare professionals and celebrities (including Rita Ora and Gwyneth Paltrow!)

Containing natural spring water without any preservatives nor treatment, its composition is clinically shown by over 150 studies to calm, soothe the skin while improving skin texture. Ideal for irritated or sensitive skin, this spray is great for any occasion — before makeup as a base, soothe inflammation after a reaction or even to calm skin after a wax job gone awry.

Eau Thermal Avène Thermal Spring Water Spray (50ml) retails at SGD10.10 and is available at Watsons. If you want even more savings, consider purchasing it from Guardian, which has an attractive bundle where you can buy two 150ml bottles at SGD29.90.

Kat Von D steps down as owner of Kat Von D Beauty. Find out what changes in 2020

Kat Von D Beauty, your favourite vegan brand that is best known for its impressive range of liquid lipsticks and a much raved about eyeliner, is going through a massive change. The brand as you know it is going through a transformation because founder and owner Kat Von D is stepping down as owner.

Kat Von D Leaves Kat Von D Beauty

This was announced on 16 January and Von D’s departure will take effect immediately; she will no longer be involved with the brand in any capacity.

Besides the change in ownership, the brand has also changed its name to KVD Vegan Beauty, effective immediately, and has announced a new logo.

Today, our founder Kat Von D has parted ways with us, as she leaves to pursue other artistic endeavors (vegan shoe line and music). We wish her the best of luck and thank her for 12 years of partnership! We are NOW renamed and re-branded KVD Vegan Beauty – and fully owned and operated by Kendo. The same team that created our iconic and beloved products for the past 12 years (and built the empire with Kat) is ready to make history again. We still value self-expression, compassion and empowerment. To read the full press release, go to our link in bio. Thank you for your support.

A post shared by KVD Vegan Beauty (@kvdveganbeauty) on Jan 16, 2020 at 9:10am PST

According to the press release that announced her departure, Von D is leaving the beauty brand she has founded to devote more time in other creative pursuits, including her music as well as her vegan shoe brand, Von D Shoes.

“This past year has been one of great change for me,” Von D says in a statement.

“As many of you know, I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy, launched my vegan shoe line, and am now busy prepping to release my long-awaited album in the spring, followed by an international tour. As much as I wish I could balance all of this, on top of continuing my makeup line, it has become clear to me that I just can’t do everything at the maximum capacity.”

Kendo, the beauty brand incubator that also takes care of Marc Jacobs Beauty and Fenty Beauty is the sole owner of the brand now. While there is a name and logo change, the good news for fans is that the product lineup under the former Kat Von D Beauty will remain the same, and it will continue to develop new vegan and cruelty-free beauty products just like before.

Von D also says that her departure was a hard choice to make, but she is confident in Kendo’s ability to helm it. Kendo Beauty has been partnering Kat Von D Beauty since its launch 12 years ago.

KVD Vegan Beauty is available at Sephora.

3 ways to effortlessly transform your boring old hairstyle into a chic Instagram-worthy look 2020

We get it. Hair styling can sound like such a hassle with all sorts of tools, products and accessories, especially if you are someone whose entire hair routine consists of brushing out your hair with your fingers and put it in a ponytail.

But hear us out: hair styling can be really simple, and those gorgeous hairstyles you see all over Instagram? They can actually be easier to achieve than they look. Here are three examples of Instagram-worthy hairstyles that are both easy to achieve and can be done in less than ten minutes. Say goodbye to boring ponytails!

1. Long natural curls

Long straight hair is classic and timeless, but without any styling it can look unkempt and get boring after a while. A quick way to give your long hair a makeover is to give it some natural curls for extra volume and texture. Just five to ten minutes, depending on how thick your hair is, with a curling iron will give you tousled curls that take no effort at all.

Take it a step further by adding a cute hair clip not just to keep hair out of your face on a hot day but also as an attention-catching statement accessory in itself.

If you have coloured or bleached hair, then the new Deep Repair Argan Oil is the right hair oil for you!⁠ Chemical processes such as colouring of the hair will result in brittle and dry hair, but the new Deep Repair Hair Oil can recharge and deeply repair damaged areas of hair, giving it the nourishment that it needs ✨⁠ ⁠ 📸: @ardaisy_⁠

Before using a curling iron or any other heat styling tools, it’s important to prep your hair with a heat protecting product to prevent any damage to the hair.

Lucido-L Heat Protection Spray not only protects your hair from heat damage, it also contains Panthenol and hyaluronic acid to keep your hair shiny and well-moisturised. It even comes with UV protection to shield your hair from the harsh UV rays from the sun. The formula is smooth and non-sticky, so you can be sure that it doesn’t interfere with your hair styling.

Despite the name, this product doesn’t leave your hair all stiff, but has a smooth and natural finish. It also contains panthenol to moisturise your hair, maintaining a healthy shine to your locks.

2. Weave in some braids

Easiest way to look like a dainty princess? Add some braids!  Regular three-strand braids are enough to instantly jazz up a look but you can go all out with waterfall, French or Dutch braids.

Hairstyling Stick

To keep your braids in place without any hair sticking out, especially for those with layered hair or lots of baby hair, the Lucido-L Hairstyling Stick is the way to go. All you need to do is apply the stick directly onto the braids, or anywhere on your hair, to smooth out frizz and tame any stray hair or stubborn baby hair.

The ellipse shape makes it easy to apply on all areas of the hair without making a mess on your hands, and the compact size is convenient to carry around to style your hair on the go.

The best thing is that the Lucido-L Hairstyling Stick doesn’t just serve as a styling tool, but doubles as a hair care product. It contains shea butter to moisturise the hair and UV Protection Formula to protect hair from harmful UV rays.

3. Short hair blowout

Whether you are growing out a pixie cut or simply rocking the fabulous short bob, a blowout is the easiest way to style your short hair. Simply use a round brush to style your hair as you blow-dry it and voila, a simple yet chic short ‘do that takes little effort to achieve!

For a little extra oomph, you can either use some texturising spray to add volume and hold to your hair, or apply a moisturising hair oil to give your hair that healthy, luscious shine.
