The Zoharous Etsy Shop

Hi Everyone,
Sorry I haven't done any posts recently. I was really busy prepping up a surprise for all of you.

I have finally published my online shop. It's called Zoharous [... as expected]




I started working on this shop earlier on but I opened it officially on the 17th of August and I must say, I'm loving it! The fun thing is that I just completed my first sale... Isn't that great!?!
The picture you can see is called an Etsy Mini and it shows a sneak peek of my shop.

I have also put a tab on my blog.

Yay!!!

Makeup Mistakes that Add 10 Years

Mistake #1: Using Too Much Foundation

A foundation that's too thick will settle into fine lines and sap the luminosity from your skin. "Only use foundation where you need it to even out discoloration," says makeup artist Frances Hathaway. "You don't have to cover every inch of your skin." When buying a foundation, avoid those described as "matte," "velvet," and "long-wearing"; look for sheer liquid formulas with light-diffusing pigments. (A great option: Chanel Vitalumiere, $55; chanel.com.) 

For those of us who have dry skin, foundation can look patchy and accentuate discoloration, so exfoliate two to three times a week and always apply a moisturizer after cleansing. 

Hathaway's favorite moisturizers to use under foundation: Aveda All Sensitive Moisturizer for combination or normal skin ($33; aveda.com) and Weleda Skin Food for dry skin ($18.50; usa.weleda.com).

Mistake #2: Over-Concealing Your Under-Eye Circles
A thick concealer that comes in a stick or pot will eradicate the shadows under your eyes, but it will also draw attention to the creepiness and fine lines that usually show up in that area first (because the skin there is thin). 

A better option: A brush-on highlighter pen (like Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector, $11.99; drugstores) that uses illuminating particles, not opaque color, to camouflage dark circles. Apply it only near the inner corners of your under-eye area, where shadows are most prominent (and lines least). 

Mistake #3: Wearing Deep, Dark Lip Colors
A dark color makes any surface look smaller--a welcome illusion perhaps on your hips but not your lips. To make your mouth look fuller (one hallmark of a youthful face), choose bright lipsticks and glosses (peaches, pinks, vibrant reds) over deep shades (burgundies, wines, browns). Makeup artists use another trick to create the illusion of luscious lips: Before applying color, trace a highlighter pencil along your upper lip line, then buff it out with your finger. (Try Nars Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Hollywoodland, $24; narscosmetics.com.) 

Mistake #4: Finishing with Powder
Youthful skin reflects light. Powders prevent light reflection and tend to magnify lines in the skin. If powder has been the final step of your makeup routine since high school, it can be difficult to quit cold-turkey. Here's a three-step program: First, switch to a very sheer translucent powder (like Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder, $35; lauramercier.com). Then, start using it only on your nose and chin. Finally, trade the powder for a packet of blotting tissues--use one, only on the T-zone (nose, chin, and forehead), if you're shiny midday. 

Mistake #5: Wearing Black Eyeliner
Don't skip eyeliner altogether--it's a great way to make your eyes look more open--but choose brown over black, which can be harsh. And keep the color diffuse. "You want to define the eyes with softness and blending, not strict lines," says makeup artist Troy Surratt. "A thick liner can leave the upper lids looking heavier than they are." The best technique: Trace a brown pencil liner along the upper lash line (into the roots of the lashes), focusing on the outer corners; smudge it with a Q-tip.

Zoharous | How to Wear Cropped Trousers

I guess the clothes I have been sewing lately have all been dresses. Well, here's a change!
I decided to try out this trend, the cropped trousers and this is what I was able to produce. What do you guys think!?!


What I personally love about it is that:
(1) Its trendy
(2) Its in tie-and-dye
(3) Its Print!
(4) Its CROPPED!

How to totally rock this look:
It's the year of the pant, and the preferred length is short and ankle-skimming. Add a pair of black pumps or ankle booties and a classic ID bracelet.

Style: The Cropped Sleeve Blazer

Blazers are a huge trend this fall and the crop is the added touch to this trend. The trendsetters say,


"It’s actually one of the most basic ways of styling your blazer. The cropped sleeve blazer is basically lifting your blazer’s sleeves up to have that gathered look around your elbows. 
Not only does this add detail to your look, but it also adds a whole new style dimension to the usual streamlined sleeves of your outerwear."

There are actually three major ways to crop your blazer’s sleeve. First way is to fold the edge backwards until the middle of your forearms. Afterwards, you pull your sleeve back until the folded edge is at the end of it and just before the elbows. Next method would be to fold the edge backwards once and then pull it above your elbow. The final way to achieve a cropped sleeve blazer look is to not fold the edge at all and pull it up until your forearms or at the elbow part or even after it.

Cropping the sleeves of your blazer is actually a great way of ‘styling’ the item. Usually blazers end at the edge of your palm or at your wrist. Sometimes, it even ends at the middle of your palm. Either way, it can become boring if you just keep it wearing the same way. By styling it, you can actually stretch your dollar a bit when it comes to your blazer. You can create a whole new look and vibe with just some small tweaks in this beloved fashion item — and that is just the sleeve.

A cropped sleeve blazer can also create a whole new depth and dimension on your body. Exposing the forearms, it can actually make your whole arm a little slimmer and longer. The cropped and gathered part of the sleeve is also great in creating volume in that area. So if you are a little slim in that body part and wish to create more muscle in that area, by all means, do this style!
But what about the women with big arms? Oddly enough, the cropped sleeve blazer can actually balance it. Because it makes the forearms exposed, that would be the first thing that they would focus on, provided that the blazer is dark in color. The cropped and gathered sleeve in the upper arm actually creates a distracting detail that would hide or even minimize that area.

Overall, the cropped sleeve blazer is a great trend to actually get into. 
(1) You don’t even have to buy another fashion item to achieve this. You can actually do it with the current blazers that you have. So that is definitely a good reason. 
(2) Cropped sleeves can actually flatter and accentuate your upper body, in general, and your arms in particular. So to those who needs these effects, go ahead and do this! 
(3) Finally, this style trend is timeless. Anyone can do it, whatever age bracket they are in. So you know that it encompasses in terms of wearability.
