Contouring is a clever make-up technique to have when you need that instant extra loving when you’re feeling a bit puffy or if you’ve missed a few gym sessions! It gives the illusion of a wider face being more narrow, more prominent check bones, and a defined jawline. But BEWARE if you over indulge and lather on the bronze, contouring can be your worst enemy and totally obvious in the wrong way.
What to use:
Prep your skin:
NOTE: For the day time keep it simple, natural, soft and matte, it shouldn’t be obvious, for the evening you can amp it up a bit as the light is a lot more friendlier.

While it’s a bit more socially acceptable for men, hair loss in women can be especially troubling and stressful. Cruelly, that stress can actually lead to more hair loss. When you’re stressed out, your scalp can get tight and stressed out, too. That stress on the scalp inhibits proper blood flow, prevents nutrients from nourishing the follicles and can disturb your hair’s growth cycle. There are laser treatments that can help stimulate the scalp and attempt to get things back on track, but your best bet is to prevent the problems by lowering your stress.
Massaging your scalp regularly can also help, both to stimulate your scalp and to increase your general relaxation. Try a peppermint relaxing conditioner, or tea tree oil if your scalp is dry and flaky. In the shower, move your fingers in slow movements over your scalp, while the water flows over it. Don’t be too tough – remember, you’re trying to calm your scalp. Or, take advantage of one of the many salons throughout Asia that provide amazing scalp massages while shampooing your hair.
Ease up on the shampooing! There’s no need to wash your hair every day, and doing so is likely to strip your hair of its natural oils and cause damage. A bit of natural oil in your hair helps your ponytail look sleek. If it seems a bit too oily, but you don’t have time for a wash, you can add hairspray or gel to really lean into the sleek look. Or, opt for a dry shampoo instead, in between washes. Just spray it in, brush it out, and you’ll get style with volume. Try to train your hair to go three or four days in between washes.
Vary your ponytail. There are so many ways to make a ponytail: high, low, side – there’s no wrong way to do it and nothing is easier when you’re in a hurry. If we take a cue from Hollywood, your ponytail can even be messy. The secret to a great messy bun or a messy pony is to let the hair fall out a bit on the sides. You can also accessorise your ponytail: clip a bit of bling or a flower next to the elastic you used to make the ponytail. Hair bands are big at the moment, too, thanks The Great Gatsby trend.
