Tips for choosing a Bridal Bindi Design

You should give importance to your bridal bindi design. A small forehead should not have big dots, and the design should be subtle and less prominent. A larger forehead can support floral, decorated dots.

If your eyes are too closely placed, the dots should start well away from the center of the forehead an from the central bindi. If they are distantly placed, these dots can be started from either side of the central bindi.

The most popular colors which are also suitable for photographic effect (colored or black and white) are red and white. You could use red and gold or red and silver, depending on your dress and the work on it. Also with diamond jewelery you could use red and silver, and the dress should have silver work on it if possible. If the wedding is to take place during the day, then dots of silver or gold will look good, but for the night they will not show up well in photographs or even otherwise.

Hanuman Mandir, Delhi Tourism

Hanuman Mandir, Delhi

A popular religious spot Hanuman Mandir dedicated to the famous monkey God has made the area popular with women who come to get henna applied on their hands and to make purchases of bangles, trinkets and a host of other things that could bedeck a woman. The Hanuman Mandir is situated on the Baba Kharak Singh road about 250 mt. southwest of Connaught Circus. It was built most probably at the same time when the Jantar Mantar was built. It has undergone large scale renovations since then. Architecturally it is quite significant.

It is most frequented on Tuesdays, the day dedicated specially to Hanuman. This is the day when Mangal Haat (Tuesday fair) is held outside the temple. Apart from shopper and devotees it is also a good day for business for beggars who wait outside the temple to receive alms from the devotees. During the marriage seasons and on Karva Chauth day the ground outside the temple gets converted in to a huge mehandi bazaar so popular are the mehandi Wallis of this areas. Another important yet lesser known activity in this area is that is early morning flowers are sold at wholesale price. Though the market venue is across the road from the temple. It is popularly known as the Hanuman Mandir Flower Bazaar.

Treatment of Superfluous Hair effective method

Hair on the upper lip can normally be treated quite effectively by bleaching or waxing. But before trying to get rid of hair on the rest of the face, consult a dermatologist or a beauty specialist. Bleaching is good because this does not stimulate the root in any way, and is a surface treatment only, whereas waxing or threading involves pulling at the roots.

Bleaching: This is effective if you have just a downy growth. Bleaching at home is not advisable if the skin is very sensitive or has pimples, or if one has a sun-burnt skin. If the skin is very dry, one should refrain from bleaching till it gets normal. Bleaching at the saloon under the guidance of an experienced beauty specialist is always safe, even under the above mentioned conditions of the skin. To some extent bleaching does help the skin to get rid of its tan, and lighten the marks left behind by pimples. Besides, some acute cases of acne marks and pigmentation have benefited greatly by bleaching.

Tweezing: This is the most convenient method, which one can use to get eyebrows into shape or to pull out any odd hair on the chin or face. One cannot, however, tweeze over a large area, as it is very slow and tiring.

1. Your lips should be clean and dry.

2. Draw an outline with a brush, and fill up. If for some reason you find this difficult, then first fill up, leaving the outline clear, and then with th help of the brush make the outline neat and extend the lipstick to wherever you have chosen it to be.

3. Blend evenly.

4. Lustrous lipsticks should not be blotted, as this would lose half their lusture.

5. For added sheen use lip-gloss, which looks very attractive at night.

6. Always wipe off the old lipstick if you have to do running repairs to your make-up, and then apply the fresh coat. Otherwise it will give a flaky finish to your lips. Besides, the tiny flaky skins cling to your lipstick, will remain embedded in it and you can never have a smooth finish if you use that lipstick again. If by mistake you find something on your lipstick, wipe if off with a tissue, but very gently.

7. Make use of your dark lipsticks by first applying the rejected dark shade and the applying the white one, blending it evenly. you will be surprised to get such a lovely shade and in an economical way.
