Office Makeup: What You Can and Cannot Do

Women find the act of applying makeup very liberating and therapeutic.  Whether it’s simply dabbing lip gloss before stepping out of the car or going the whole nine yards for a night out with the girls, putting on makeup has proven to be every woman’s remedy to imperfections that only she can see.

 

Makeup helps women look good and feel good, but there is also an appropriate amount and style that need to be considered when wearing it for work.  What looked good on you at last night’s concert may not necessarily be suitable when meeting your boss at 9AM.

 

Here are some tips when wearing makeup to the office:

Woman eye with long eyelashes and mascara brush

  1. Go easy on the mascara.

Mascaras are supposed to make your eyes look bigger and your lashes more pronounced.  Too much of it can ruin the natural beauty of your eyes.  Instead of loading your lashes with the thick liquid, just roll the wand once from base to tip for a natural effect.

  1. No dark eye shadows please.

You may be a pro at achieving the “smoky eyes” effect but do know that that only works at night.  Office makeup does not necessarily require eye shadow but if you feel you really need to apply some, stick to earth tones and neutrals that will enhance your eyes’ expression rather than dim it.

  1. Hold the frosts and glitters.

Lipsticks that are too shiny, frosty, or glittery wash out your face and make you look immature. If you want to be taken seriously by your colleagues, choose a nude shade that makes you look fresh and professional.

  1. And the bronze goes to…

Bronzers can help you achieve a natural glow when applied correctly. Use a large brush when putting on matte bronzer on your face as a final touch to your “barely made up” look.  It helps keep your colors in place while giving you an effortless glow.

  1. Keep the drama away from your eyebrows.

The secret is choosing an eyebrow pencil shade that is nearest your hair color. Elianto Malaysia carries dark and light shades of brown that you can match with the color of your hair.  It helps if your eyebrows are neatly groomed too!

 

Work makeup has to make you feel confident without being too loud or off-putting.  Wear the kinds of shades that will make others say, “She’s got her game face on.”

 

Being in the Creative Industry: Overcoming the Challenges

creative-industry-words

 

Challenges in the creative industry can range from simply finding inspiration for your work to finding the perfect job for your particular creative style. It could be difficult at times, but it should not be the case if you know how and where to look for the information you need. If you are looking for a job in the arts and related fields, here are some ways to overcome the most common challenges.

Challenge 1: Nobody knows what you can do
Tip: Create a portfolio

Your portfolio (e.g., a website, a published photo book, etc.), unlike your resume, shows exactly what you can do. Your resume might be able to provide a narrative of the experiences you’ve had, but a portfolio creates a visual representation of your skills as a creative person. For instance, if you are applying for architect jobs, you can increase your chances of being called in for an interview if the employer sees your actual work. Whether in digital form or not, you should make your portfolio easily accessible to your target employers.

Challenge 2: You have no network
Tip: Be part of the community

Attend conventions, seminars, or even just visit a gallery. If you are having difficulty finding new motivations in your career, meeting new people in the same industry can do wonders. Aside from helping you expand your network, going to such events will also enable you to have intellectual discussions about the topics that you are interested in. Even with the many communication technologies, sharing information within the creative community by word of mouth still helps you in many ways – especially when creating a reputation.

Challenge 3: You run out of new ideas
Tip: Take interest in other art forms

You should learn how to appreciate other people’s work, and do your best to observe and learn from your surroundings. For instance, if you are a photographer, examine paintings, animations, movies, and other media formats. Turning to other art forms to find inspiration can help you develop new ideas for your art. By doing so, you could learn different styles that you can integrate into your work.

Challenge 4: You unknowingly disregard intellectual property rights
Tip: Get to know the people in the industry

To avoid being labeled as a copycat, take the time to get to know the people in the industry. You can still learn new things even when you are not in university anymore, and who else can you learn from better other than the people who are in the same industry as you? However, be careful in doing so, as you would not want to be accused of (or worse, sued for) copying someone else’s work. For example, you can go to exhibits and art installations of artists who use the same style, but you cannot copy exactly what they are doing. What you can do is learn their process and technique, but you need to have your own interpretation of the art.Get-Your-Content-to-Stand-Out-from-the-Crowd-620x350

 

Challenge 5: Your work doesn’t stand out
Tip: Deviate from the norms

Most creative people find it difficult to build their careers simply because they follow what other people are doing. If you want to show your potential in the industry, try to develop your own knowledge and skills, combine them, and add a personal touch to it. It is all about how you market yourself. Have you ever noticed how Tim Burton’s movies always seem dark, while Quentin Tarantino’s always show gore and blood in intricate detail? These creators have their own “signatures”, and it is one of the reasons why they captured people’s attention.

 

Once you overcome the challenges that everyone in the creative industry is facing, your job-hunting experience will no longer be as difficult as you think it is.

8 Easy Hacks for Organizing Your Tools

 

Image result for 8 Easy Hacks for Organizing Your Tools

There’s a growing culture of people making do-it-yourself things. From the hype of IKEA’s concept where people can arrange their own furniture, to making your own items such as wooden clocks and pottery. There’s a certain pride when one is able to craft items, and with that creativity comes… clutter.

 

 

In order to help you make the best tools organizing system, here are some tips below:

–           Have categories for your tools. Have a system. This would mean that your tools are easy to locate and use when you need them. It’s also crucial to protect your tools. Metal tools can get rusty over time, and also break other more delicate tools.

–           If you have string-like tools (cables, rope, measuring tape, etc.), it’s a good idea to keep them in a roll so they don’t tangle. You can always use rubber bands to tie it together so it’ll stay in a neat coil.

–           Consider the weight of your tools. Keep heavy objects such as items made from metal or heavy wood away from things like corrugated cardboard or plastic.

–           When dealing with smaller items such as nails or nuts in small, organized containers. You may opt for a nice toolbox that has smaller components with lids in it to prevent smaller items from getting mixed up.

–           It’s a good idea to have a separate tool bag with staple tools you use, just in case you need to bring them somewhere. Some brands may also offer tool sets that already come inside their own packaging/case.

–           For tools with sharp edges such as screwdrivers or handsaws, it’s better to store them in containers where you can fully see the items and also have all the handles facing one direction so you don’t get yourself injured when reaching in to grab items.

–           If you have heavy tools such as large hammers or drills that you have to move around, consider getting a utility cart. It provides efficiency because it doubles as a storage area while also helping you move tools around.

–           Keep in mind the materials of items. Some items may be fine kept in a standard steel toolbox, but others might require more specific containers such as ESD boxes.

The most important thing is to keep yourself safe while handling these tools and create a system that’s best for you. Good luck, and keep crafting!

Just How Far Can Your Cycling Footwear Take You?

Image result for Cycling FootwearMany have missed out on the benefits of getting the right gear for an exercise because of some usual misconceptions. Sneakers can be considered handy for cyclists. At least, for some. Since cycling isn’t a daily routine, shoes are not a worthy investment. For a moment perhaps, but this thinking will eventually lead you nowhere.

 

Enthusiasts need the gist of this entire “shoe” story in their personal successes. Here are important considerations why cycling shoes in Malaysia will always be worth buying.

 

The Power Feature

Soles of cycling shoes are designed to be very stiff. Experts say that this significant feature prevents loss of the power produced from working leg muscles. Instead of being trapped in the soles’ cushion, the power goes straight where it’s needed-the pedal. As a result, it becomes easier to pedal as one amps up resistance.

 

The Alignment Feature

Proper position is the key. The right foot gear needs no conscious effort for the feet to stay in the right position. Cycling shoes automatically clip in. One gets consistently aligned then and better avoids injuries.

 

The Comfort Feature

There is a danger of failure to clip in. Those with bigger shoe sizes find it hard to keep up with the optimal position – that makes them pedal with their toes. Those with smaller sizes may end up with arches of their feet over the mid-pedals. Both situations are not advisable. The proper footwear is sure to bring the best comfort possible and prevents both tendencies to occur.

 

The Muscle-Building Feature

One can target his core better with the right kind of shoes. Since cycling shoes keep the feet in place, unnecessary stress is gotten rid of, especially in body parts not required for the workout. The sweat session will definitely be of good quality.

 

Cycling must end up somewhere, health-wise and energy-wise. To get the most from this, the right foot gear helps. If you believe otherwise, prepare to be caught in a measly bike.

 

The benefits far outweigh the price paid. Almost always.
