Remedies For HIV AIDS by garlic

Monday, January 30th, 2012

The HIV virus attacks the immune system and can effectively destroy its ability to fight diseases. When the virus has destroyed too many of the immune system’s white blood cells, the body succumbs to all kinds of invasive infections and diseases, including pneumonia, Kaposi’s sarcoma, herpes, meningitis, tuberculosis, cancer and others. That is when the HIV infection is reclassified as AIDS. The patient dies from complications from the opportunistic infections of AIDS and not from the HIV itself.

Although antiretroviral drugs are being used on a worldwide scale to fight HIV and AIDS, the drugs’ effectiveness to permanently suppress the virus are still in debate. The HIV virus has shown an ability to replicate and mutate to become drug-resistant.

Eyeshadow Tips

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

Matte powder eyeshadows in an array of neutral tones from light to dark are your best bets for a classic, sophisticated eye design that accents the shape and color of your eyes.
Unless you’re using just one eyeshadow color, use at least two eyeshadow brushes for application.

Prep the eyelid and under-brow area with a matte-finish concealer, foundation, and/or powder before applying eyeshadow. This ensures a smooth, even application and (if you have fair to medium skin) will also neutralize the red and blue coloration of the eyelid.

Tap off any excess eyeshadow from your brush before applying—this will prevent overapplication as well as flaking eyeshadow.

If you really want to make the color of your eyes pop, choose a contrasting color in a soft tone and apply this to the lids. Blue eyes come alive with pale peach or cantaloupe hues, green eyes seem richer with light bronze or caramel tones, hazel eyes become more alluring with chestnut and golden brown shades, and brown eyes are nicely accented by almost all neutral tones.

Eye-Design Mistakes to Avoid

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

Do not overcolor the eyes; excessive bright colors are distracting, not attractive.

Do not create hard edges; you should not be able to see where one color stops and another starts. Practice your application and learn to blend well.

Do not wear bright pink or iridescent pink eyeshadows; they make eyes look irritated and tired. Muted or pale pink is an option.

If you are concerned about making skin look more wrinkled, do not wear shiny eyeshadows of any kind because they exaggerate the appearance of lines. If you have smooth, unlined eyelids and prefer a touch of shine, apply it sparingly for subtle shimmer rather than distracting glitter.

Do not apply lipstick or blush over the eye area; it might sound like a time-saver, but if you have a lighter skin tone, it can make you look like you’ve been up all night crying. However, most bronzing powders can work as eyeshadows.

Do not match your eyeshadow to your clothing or your eye color. If you have blue eyes, blue eyeshadow makes the blue of your eyes look duller. And complementing your clothing is at best dated; besides, what if you’re wearing red or black?

Avoid eye glosses and other greasy products at all costs. These may look intriguing in photographs, but are more annoying than alluring in real life because they stick, smear and smudge all over the place in a very short period of time.
