Learn How To Apply False Lashes Like A Pro In Minutes
This may be a sensitive topic to the faint hearted because we know that applying false lashes can be a tricky thing to do. Thank goodness we have your back! We’ve seen makeup artists and bloggers execute this fiddly mission to perfection without hesitation. And we are giving you top secret tips to perfect this complicated skill like a pro.
Remove the preferred lash from the packaging using an old tweezer. Apply a small coat of mascara to prep the lashes.
Now this step needs you to concentrate. Using an applicator or tweezer, apply a thin and neat layer from each corner of the lash. Make sure not to apply the lash to the eyes immediately because you have to wait a few seconds (preferably 30 seconds) to air-dry before application. Once dry, look down and apply the false lash above your natural lash line and make sure not to get the glue directly in your eyes, if so, rinse with Luke warm water.
For that Va Va Voom…
This is not a must! If you want more volume or a more dramatic effect, gently apply mascara or another layer of the same lashes. This will instantly transform your eyes giving it “that thing”…if you know what I mean.

Blogger Acalaca shares tips on how she got rid of acne
Acalaca has been struggling with acne for eight years.
Acne is a common condition that affects most people including celebrities. Well-known businesswoman Akona ‘Acalaca’ Lali shares on how she dealt with the skin issue.
Growing up in the Eastern Cape, Akona had to live those awkward teen years hiding her face behind funky hairstyles, bold accessories and fashionable clothes. And, in a recent Instagram post, the beaut opened up about how people used to make fun of her,
I thought I would have “bad skin” for the rest of my life and remember some guy saying I look like a lunch bar, I got home and cried so much
Having tried countless skin products in the market with no results, the digital entrepreneur found other methods to help combat her skin condition.
She was put on Oratane, a medical treatment that fights off bacteria and reduce the inflammation for six months, but that had to be cut short due to harsh side effects,
I stopped using it on my 4th month I just couldn’t deal with the side effects
She then tried the Vampire Facial, a procedure done by aesthetic professionals which involves taking a sample of your own blood and then injecting it with needles back in your face.
And, that’s when she noticed a difference which led her to make a lifestyle change,
My lifestyle definitely contributes to the health of my skin, hair and nails in fact my entire well being. I’m vegan, I don’t drink alcohol or smoke tobacco
How does she maintain such radiant skin?
She eats a well balanced diet and drinks plenty of water. She also produces skin care products which will be launching soon.
