Makeup Tips Every Girl Should Know

It’s hard being a girl and dealing with makeup can be a real struggle sometimes. But, here are some life-changing makeup tips you might not know that will make your life a little easier.

Use toilet seat covers as blotting paper.

Ever run out of blotting paper when your face is super oily? It’s not a cute look. Go to a public restroom and take a seat cover, rip it up into smaller pieces and use it to de-grease your face!

Make lipstick last longer with a tissue and translucent powder.

It is extremely annoying having your lipstick not staying put…which leads me to one of my favorite life-changing makeup tips. After applying your lipstick, take a tissue and place it over your lips. Then, take translucent powder on a brush and dab it onto the tissue over your lips. Now your lipstick will stay put!

Cut open makeup tubes to get every last drop.

Makeup packaging can be a real pain, but a great way to get every bang for your buck is to cut open your makeup tubes and scrape out the leftover makeup into another pot.

Revive your mascara with eye drops.

If your mascara gets dry and lumpy, put a few squirts of eye drops into the tube. It’ll liquefy the mascara so you can keep on using it.

Match your foundation to your neck.

To avoid your face being a different color from your neck, test foundations on your neck and NOT your hand or wrist. This will give you a much more natural look.

Signs You Have a Hormonal Imbalance

Feeling bloated, irritable, or just not your best? A hormone imbalance could be to blame. Hormones are chemical “messengers” that impact the way your cells and organs function. It’s normal for your levels to shift at different times of your life, such as before and during your period or a pregnancy, or during menopause. But some medications and health issues can cause them to go up or down, too.

Some of the most common symptoms of hormonal imbalances are:

Persistent weight gain

Yes, there are lifestyle, diet and physical activity components to maintaining a healthy weight, but that isn't the end of the story. Many women have underlying hormonal imbalances that make it difficult to maintain a healthy weight. Unaddressed or emerging insulin resistance is one of the most common; small changes in diet — such as eliminating processed foods, sugars and wheat — are steps in the right direction.

Belly fat and loss of muscle mass

When your endocrine system is under stress there's an underproduction of certain hormones and an overproduction of others (mainly cortisol). This makes your body store fat for future use, making an increase in belly fat a clue to adrenal fatigue.


Can't make it past mid-morning without some sort of pick-me-up? How about that mid-afternoon crash? It isn't normal to feel sluggish, scattered or mentally foggy. Easy dietary changes, such as eliminating wheat and most grains, will help stabilize your blood sugar.

Anxiety, irritability and depression

Not feeling like yourself? This isn't the time for pharmaceuticals. Anxiety and depression are clues that you have an imbalance, toxicity, are overworked, stressed out, and most likely aren't nourishing your body the way it needs. Listen to your inner voice and take the actions necessary to meet your needs.


For many women, night sweats and hot flashes are the first uncomfortable sign that something is amiss. This isn't the time to start hormone replacement therapy, but begin a food journal by jotting down what you eat and drink, how you feel physically, and any emotions that come up after. Many times our emotions are the trigger that increases internal temperature. The next time you feel the flashes coming on, stop and think about the thoughts swirling around in your mind.

The Most Beautiful Easter Tree

A German tradition of decorating trees and bushes with Easter eggs is known as the Ostereierbaum, or Easter egg tree. 

German pensioner Volker Kraft decorates an apple tree with Easter eggs in the garden of his summer house, in the eastern German town of Saalfeld on Wednesday. Every year since 1965 Volker and his wife Christa spend up to two weeks decorating the tree with their collection of 10,000 colorful hand-painted Easter eggs in preparation for Easter celebrations.

It started in 1965 with 18 Eastern eggs

350 Easter eggs on the tree in 1994

The number of Easter eggs hung by the tree’s branches grew every year,and  it reached an incredible 10.000 eggs.

Kraft started with plastic eggs decades ago, but later switched to real eggs
