► Tips to Be Creative with Your Eyeliner :-

Some of the creative eyeliner application tips through which you can create magic in your looks:

1. To make your eyeliner application simple and easier, always use waterproof gel liners.
2. Be creative with your eyeliner application and try to experiment innovation by lining your eyes beyond the outer edge.
3. If you are scared to extend the line beyond outer edge, you can make a noticeable change by doing eyeliner application on ...your lower lashline. You can make this eyeliner application more prominent by applying kohl on the waterline to give your eyes a defined look.
4. For a formal look, your eye liner application should be thick on both the upper and lower eyelids. These eyeliner application tips work great especially for the people with bigger eyes.
5. People who have small eyes can create an impression of large, doe-like eyes with the help of these simple eyeliner application tips. All they need is to make their eyeliner application interesting by lining only the outer edges of both upper and lower of eyes. To get an open wide-eyed look, you can also apply the golden highlighter in the inner corner of your eyes following your eyeliner application.
6. You can get dramatic appearance by following these interesting eyeliner application tips. For a stand-out look, draw very thin lines on the upper and lower lids, but don’t join them at outer edges during eyeliner application.

Your innovative style of eyeliner application can also create a grunge look for you. All you need to do is to line only your lower lashline.

~Cheesecake~

5 minute - 4 ingredients

No Bake Cheesecake




I love to make the creamiest, fabulous easy cheesecakes and enjoy them. So if you want this easy recipe to be your "specialty"  here you go.

Ingredients-
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 8ounce tub of cool whip
1/3 cup of lemon or lime juice
1 8 ounce package of cream cheese.

Most important part of this recipe, is to leave the cream cheese out for a couple hours at room temperature. The cream cheese will become soft and smooth. The importance of this is to create a smooth texture. Not doing so, will create horrible lumps of cream cheese that will ruin the flavor of this pie.

After your cream cheese is softened enough, I like to see if it will spread easily with a plastic spatula. In a mixing bowl, mix all before mentioned ingredients. Please note: the lemon/lime juice must come last. The reaction of the citrus juice will start to harden your mixture almost immediately.

On the low speed of you hand mixer, blend well. Around 2 minutes of so is plenty, just make sure all ingredients are incorporated. Immediately pour mixture into a waiting graham crust or for those of us that can't have the gluten, I opt for muffin cups. Refrigerate for an hour to and hour and a half and viola.

Add-ons-Make it your own!
To make this recipe your own, there are several things you can add.
Oreo cookie crust. Incorporate a few of the cookies in to the batter, crushed of course. Top with a few whole or halved cookies as well.

Fresh strawberries, with or without glaze. I like to cut the strawberries up in to quarters and place in a zip-lock bag. Gently whacking the bag of berries on the counter a few times to start releasing the juices. A half an hour later, you have a no fuss, no extra sugar strawberry topping and glaze. Although a little vanilla in bag wouldn't hurt anything.

Key lime juice instead of regular. This will give you a tart cheesecake, more like a key lime bar if you lessen the cool whip content. About half is needed for recipe, although the more that is used, the lighter and fluffier the taste and texture will be.
