Make Your Own Foundation Makeup

Recently I’ve been searching the Internet to find information about how to make your own foundation makeup. The tips that I found on WikiHow were very simple to follow. After reading those tips on the site, I made my foundation from cosmetics I already had. Finding liquid makeup that matches my skin tone has always been a challenge for me. For this reason, it is better to customize your makeup to obtain a suitable color that is closer to your natural skin tone. Learning to make your own foundation makeup will save you money and time buying the wrong color. Below is a makeup recipe that I would like to share from WikiHow. If you already tried this technique, please leave comments. I would love to hear about your experience.

How To Make Your Own Foundation Makeup Things you need:

Powder makeup Lotion Instructions

On a plate, squirt a few drops of lotion. Tap the mineral powder on the lotion (I’m using Milani Minerals makeup powder) Combine the two ingredients together until the mixture is smooth. Apply the liquid foundation to your face. That’s it! Natural makeup will not cause your skin to break out, and you don’t have to worry about the harmful ingredients if you are allergic to chemicals. When you need to alter the color of the foundation, simply blend cocoa powder, arrowroot powder, nutmeg and other spices in your kitchen until you get the right shade for your skin. Use oil or lotion to make a smooth mixture.

It's Summer Time! Keep Bugs Away from your Home

The spring and summer months are a time when you want to get outside and have fun with your friends and family. However, it is also a time when bugs make their presence known in a big way. What are some tactics that you can employ to keep bugs from biting and otherwise being annoying this year? Use Bug Zappers Most insects are attracted to light. This is why most people will turn on lights on start a fire to keep bugs away. Bug zappers will utilize light to attract the bug and then zap them when they get too close. Those who use this tactic create an effective radius that is free from bugs, which allows everyone to enjoy themselves all night long.

Bug Spray or Ointment Can Be Effective Covering yourself in bug spray can be a great way to keep bugs from bothering you. Biting insects such as mosquitoes won't want to land on your body or come anywhere near you. If they bite you, they are going to get a bad taste in their mouth and fly away. In some cases, the bug spray will send out a chemical signal that tells the bugs or biting insects to stay away. A mosquito misting system may also be effective at getting them to keep their distance while you are outdoors.

Attract Bugs With Sugar Ants, bees and other bugs love sugar. This is why surfaces that are covered in sugar are likely to have pest problems. To attract bees or other bugs, you can cut a full bottle of soda in half. You can then hang the soda and wait for the bugs to fly into it. Once they get stuck in the soda, they will not be able to get out. For maximum coverage, try hanging multiple bottles of soda or other sugary liquids throughout your property.

A bug bite can do more than just cause you to itch. Certain bugs are known to carry diseases that could make you sick or kill you. Therefore, keeping bugs away could be a matter of life and death. Taking steps now to keep bugs off of your skin makes it easier to enjoy your time outside without anyone having to go to the hospital due to a bite or sting.

The Common Myths Associated with Digital Hearing Aids

There is usually a stigma that comes along with hearing aids. People don’t like hearing aids nor do they ever want to need them. Even though hearing aids and other related devices can work wonders to restore hearing to those who are impaired due to a condition or simply old age, many people avoid using them simply because they are still exposed to all of the old myths that became commonplace when hearing aids first arrived on the market. Many of the myths out there about digital hearing aids are just that: myths. They are no longer true in today’s modern world, filled with medical technology that is far more advanced than it ever was before. The hearing aids that your grandparents used are certainly not the same hearing aids your doctor will prescribe to you in the 21st century. Here are some of the most common myths surrounding digital hearing aids. See for yourself that these devices should not be feared, but rather embraced.

Hearing Aids are Uncomfortable

Today’s digital hearing aid market offers you so many more choices than were available in the past. You can certainly wear a very discreet hearing aid without anyone noticing. No matter what type of hearing loss you suffer from or what size hearing aid you need, there is something out there for everyone. There are hearing aids that hide behind your ear while amplifying sounds projected into the ear canal, and there are even very small digital hearing aids that fit completely into your ear canal, becoming invisible. These are called CIC, or “completely in the canal” aids, and they work wonders to help people hear better.

People with Severe Hearing Loss Cannot Be Helped

There is a myth that people who suffer from severe forms of hearing loss simply cannot be helped, even with the best hearing aids on the market, but this is simply not true as technology continues to push forward. There are digital hearing aids out there for every type of hearing loss, including severe, and they offer distinct features such as noise reduction or directional microphones as well, so look into hearing aids even if you think your condition is too severe to be helped.

Digital Hearing Aids Restore Your Hearing Completely

While hearing aids certainly improve your quality of life by allowing you to hear sounds much more clearly, they often are not able to improve your hearing 100%. However, when suffering from hearing loss, every bit of improvement in hearing helps, so don’t just disregard digital hearing aids because they won’t restore your hearing to what it was when you were younger. Instead, take advantage of the best hearing aids on the market to get the most benefit from these incredible devices.

Hearing Aids are Too Expensive

Today’s digital hearing aids are so diverse that they are priced according to their specifications and many are also available on the NHS. Work with a professional to determine which aid is best for you within your budget if you do not have insurance coverage. And keep in mind that, though you may need to initially invest thousands into the device, it will last you several years, and it will improve your life. Laura writes for www.yourhearing.co.uk. She educates the public on hearing loss and the remedies available to sufferers around the world.
