The newest Careline Multi Sticks for a better than basic look

If you’re new to makeup and the thought of experimenting with it intimidates you, let Careline, the Filipina teen’s go-to cosmetic brand under Ever Bilena Cosmetics, help you with these better than basic makeup tricks and tips for beginners in using its newest products called Multi Sticks (P205):

Use your fingers. You can now set aside your brushes because the newest Multi Sticks are created to build and blend easily! Apply each product in thin layers then blend with the pads of your fingers (make sure to wash your hands first!), start from center of your face and moving outwards. Using your own fingers to apply these products gives you the most natural skin-like finish and doesn’t look cake-y throughout the wear.

Combat shine and keep face smooth. Want to know the secret behind a polished makeup look? It’s primer! Before applying your favorite foundation, tinted moisturizer or BB Cream, swipe on the Blur Stick all over the face to keep it smooth and oil-free. This will also ensure that your makeup stays in place the whole day.

Hide blemishes. Whether you’re looking to conceal dark circles, large pores, age spots, and other blemishes or you just want to highlight your facial features, the Brighten Stick is the perfect product for that. After putting on your foundation, draw an inverted triangle under the eye to mask dark circles and create an illusion that the face is lifted. Pat it on skin using your ring finger so it’s evenly blended out.

Add definition to your face. Look fierce by adding definition to your face. With the Contour Stick, draw a line along your temples, the hollows of your cheeks, jawline and sides of the nose. Tap area of contour color with your fingers as it can be easily blended into your foundation. Also, this stick has a cool undertone that mimics the natural shadows of your face. (Tip: The Contour Stick is also great as an eyeshadow color)

Brighten your face with pops of color. Add pops of color to the face using the Rose and Peach Sticks. Both work as lipstick, blush, and eyeshadow. For a monochromatic look, dab your preferred color all over the lids and apples of cheeks. Finish off the look by swiping it on your lips.

Keep your glow on. Get the best healthy-looking glow on your face by applying the Strobe Stick on the high points of your cheeks, the inner corners of the eyes, eyebrow bone, bridge of your nose, Cupid ’s bow and chin. Voila! You’re ready to face the day!

Go ahead and experiment with makeup using Careline’s newest Multi Sticks available at any Careline counters at leading supermarkets, drugstores, convenience stores and department stores nationwide.

Myths and facts about weight-loss supplements

HBOFGC

Losing weight requires a lot of dedication and hard work and may involve physical and emotional costs. It is hardly surprising that many prefer the easy route by taking weight-loss supplements. While almost all weight-loss supplements are marketed as beneficial for the body, some may actually be harmful to one’s health.

Nutrition experts debunk certain claims about weight-loss supplements and reveal possible health risks.

Myth #1: Weight-loss supplements are approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Truth: The US FDA does not have the authority to review dietary supplement products for safety and effectiveness before they are marketed. It only steps in when a “dietary supplement” is found to contain harmful substances.

Myth #2: Weight-loss supplements alone are enough to lose pounds.

Truth: Weight-loss supplements cannot substitute for healthy eating and regular exercise. Many weight-loss supplements’ labels include a disclaimer that they do not guarantee a specific weight-loss benefit, that individual results may vary and, to get the most benefit, they must be combined with proper diet and exercise.

Myth #3: Supplements like Hoodia, green tea and bitter orange aid in weight loss.

Truth: Green tea, bitter orange and the African herb hoodia have not been scientifically proven to burn fat. In fact, hoodia has not been studied in humans. It is also unclear if it curbs appetite. Green tea contains a fair amount of caffeine, which may result in some weight loss initially, but it will not burn fat. Too much caffeine can affect the heart rhythm and disturb sleep. Bitter orange has synephrine, an alkaloid found in plants, that can be dangerous to health as it increases heart rate and blood pressure.

Myth #4: “Natural” is safe.

While some supplements may result in weight loss in the short term, they may have long-term adverse effects on the body, which may not be able to handle the stress of dramatic weight loss or process artificial food and supplements. They may be unsafe for those with existing medical conditions or those who need to lose a lot of weight.

If you feed your body the right kinds of food, avoid unhealthy snacks and adopt other healthy habits, you should be able to rebalance and reboot your metabolism naturally. Nothing beats fresh and good food to improve health and promote healthy weight loss.
