“The lighter your skin tone, the paler you can go with your hair,” says celebrity colorist Rita Hazan, who works with Jessica Simpson. This is why, when you have a fair skin, you can go for any blond hair color that you want, and they will all suit you.

OLIVE SKIN

This sultry skin type consists of a deep, rich brown, or an earthy color. “Add some strategically placed highlights in a subtle gold or honey if you want to create depth,” suggests Robinson. Moreover, in order to balance try to add some toasty hues like chestnut brown, auburn, and cinnamon. Ebony brown, mocha, and violet-based colors will enhance the natural warmth of tones like Kim Kardashian’s.

Carmencitta-Magazine-Foundation-make-it-like-a-pro-1

Foundation has come a long way since our mothers used to wear it back in the 60s. Back then, they used to be cakey, mask alike, and obviously visible. However, in our days, it is becoming to look and feel just like a moisturizer. Have you ever wondered why does celebrities always have a perfect looking skin? Or how do they put on their foundation? The answer is with us. Here is how to master your foundation, and how to make it look flawlessly natural.

Step number 1: find the perfect color

Carmencitta-Magazine-Foundation-make-it-like-a-pro-2

A mistake women do frequently when looking for a new foundation is, they test it on their faces. In fact, the product should be tested on your jawline, and if it disappears without you trying to blend it, it means this is the right color for you. Moreover, if you do not want to spend too much money on it, take a sample from the beauty store, and go to the drug store to find the closest match.

Step number 2: prep your skin before application

Carmencitta-Magazine-Foundation-make-it-like-a-pro-3

 

Always use a moisturizer before applying your foundation. Moreover, experts say that you need to wait five minutes before applying so that the moisturizer can sink in.

Step number 3: apply it the right way

Carmencitta-Magazine-Foundation-make-it-like-a-pro-4

You can either use a sponge or your fingers, it depends on how much coverage you want. If you want a little coverage, use your fingers. However, if you are looking for a lot of coverage, use a sponge.

Step number 4: conceal before foundation

Do not make the mistake of concealing after foundation, because this way your skin will look fake and you will look like a panda but the other way around.

Step number 5: finish with a powder

A Messy Bun in 3 steps

Carmencitta Magazine - Messy bun 1

Ironically, when it comes to beauty, the most undone looks usually require the most effort. Moreover, every girl struggles in order to master the perfect “I-woke up like this” messy bun. In fact, it requires a massive amount of effort, as well as a big amount of time. Usually it’s either too messy or deflated, too ballerina-tight, or just wrong all together. This is why, we have consulted our hair experts and came up with a perfect way to have a messy bun with only 3 steps.

Carmencitta-Magazine-Messy-bun-2.Step 1: create an effortless ponytail

 

 When your hair is completely dry, pull it into a loose ponytail. The ponytail can be as high or as low as you would like it to be. Make sure that you do not use a comb, and don’t worry about the strands being perfectly slicked back, because the look is meant to be effortless.

Step 2: tease, tease, and tease

Carmencitta Magazine - Messy bun 3

Once the ponytail is done, separate the hair in it into two or three sections and start teasing. In fact, teasing is the key step that will totally change your bun game. Moreover, teasing gives you the volume as well as the messy texture you need in order to pull off the look that keeps your bun from entering ballerina territory.

Step 3: the wrapping part

Carmencitta-Magazine-Messy-bun-4

 Separate your teased hair into two sections and start wrapping the hair in two opposite directions, as you would when you are creating a topknot. However, instead of pinning your hair neatly in, secure it with a bobby pin that is about an inch from the bottom of your strands, and leave the ends to fray around your bun, which will create a messy effect. If you feel like the body of your bun is too tight, gently pull it apart with your hands or the end of a comb. We also like to pull a few rogue pieces out around the face.

Bulimia occurs when an individual starts binge eating and after that, throws up everything that he or she had already eaten. In fact, this act can become an obsession, as well as an addiction. Moreover, about 40% of people are dealing with bulimia. It may seem very tempting, eating 2 burgers, a lot of chocolate, and some chips, and then throwing up so that you do not gain weight. However, many people fail to realize, that being bulimic will eventually lead to weight gain rather than weight loss. Here is how to stop yourself from being bulimic.

Carmencitta-Magazine-Stop-Yourself-from-Being-Bulimic-2jpg-2Lay the fork down while eating

After every single bite, lay down your fork, and bite your food very well. In fact, the more a person holds the fork, the more he or she will be tempted to scoop the food up and into their mouth. This means keep the fork on the plate during chewing, and not pick it up till the food is well chewed and swallowed.

While you are eating, enjoy every bite, and chew it completely. What can help you is focusing on the pleasure of the food, its aroma, taste as well as texture. In fact, your body needs a couple of hours to send your brain a message that it is full. This is why, chew each bite of your food longer.

Drink a lot of water, or other refreshing drink during your meal.

Carmencitta Magazine - Stop Yourself from Being Bulimic4jpgTake a sip of your drink often between each bite. This habit will fill you up faster, and slow down your eating process. Moreover, if water is just too plain for you, you can flavor it with some lemon juice in order to make it more palatable, or you can go with a calorie free drink that will have the same effect that water has. It works every time!

All You Need To Know About Crash Diets

Carmencitta MAgazine - Crash diet 1

We all get to that place where we need to lose weight fast just because we have a special occasion coming, and the dress we already bought does not zip anymore. In fact, in cases like this, most people rely on a crash diet in order to lose those few kilos and make the dress zip. However, crash diets can wreak havoc on your body and lead to a number of serious health problems. Here, you will find all that you need to know about crash diets.

What is a Crash Diet?

Carmencitta MAgazine - Crash diet 2

All crash diets have one thing in common: they are the most restrictive ways for weight loss that you can follow. In general, these kinds of diets involve cutting back on a large amount of calories, which leaves you with consuming only 1,000 or even 500 calories per day. Moreover, in many times, you will pair them with other “quick fixes” like juice cleanses, diuretics or diet pills. However, the time of each one may vary, but you will always end up with losing weight in a fast way.

How Do They Work?

 

Crash diets shock the body, and send it into a starvation mode. However, despite the fast weight loss, the body is not solely burning fat as fuel. First, it utilizes the stored up supply of carbohydrates, in the form of glycogen. As your body utilizes glycogen, you lose water as well, generating what seems like significant weight loss within the first few days of the diet.

Bad Effects

Carmencitta MAgazine - Crash diet3What most people fail to realize, is that when you are crash dieting, your body will not be able to get the essential nutrients that it needs for it to be healthy. Moreover, if this deficit keeps on being there, you can have really bad health issues, including:  leaching minerals from your bones, leading to osteoporosis and fractures or the leaching of iron from the blood, leading to anemia. Furthermore, eating low calories for a long term will lead you to having a deficiency in important nutrients such as sodium and potassium
