How to Look Thinner in Photos

Photos always carry our good memories. When we are in a happy occasion, in a lovely vacation or even at home doing anything funny we love to keep the moment forever, so we preserve it by taking the shot.

We like to look at our photos and see ourselves in a good condition, we won’t be happy to look and see ourselves fat, looking fatigue or wearing rags. We like to see ourselves in photos the way the celebrities look on the red carpet. Do you think that all these celebrities are really skinny? They are normal people with normal bodies just like you and me.

The secret is in the pose. So, here are some advices that will help you to look thinner in the photos and feel like a movie star:

1) Stand at a slight angle. Because it is knows that the most flattering position is ‘croise’. It gives you the appearance of having a smaller waistline.

2) Leave some space between your arms and body. By leaving a gap between your arms and your body this removes the appearance of bulk.  This is a little bit  tricky because raising the arms off the body can sometimes make you look awkward! Instead try to put your hands on your hips for a little more natural looking pose.

3) Stand up straight. Remind yourself always to stand up and push your shoulders back. It will highly improve your results.

4) Pull head forward slightly. This will help you to minimize any appearance of a double chin.

5) Use flashes in sunlight. Flashes are very good because they help in overriding the shadows that the overhead sunlight might cast on your face, making for pronounced under-eye and chin shadows.

And finally, just forget about looking skinny and try to relax. Experts say that the best thing a subject can do to look good in photographs is to be relaxed and happy.

How to make your eyelashes longer

They once said that the eyes are the window to the soul. The Arabian women are so famous with their beautiful eyes. But, what does really define the eye? Is it the eye-colour? Its width? Or the eyelids? May be all of that combined together, but here we are going to talk about one of the most important factors… the eyelashes.

We sometimes think that we are stuck with the lashes that we have, but this is not as true as it seems. Because sometimes we can improve our lashes to enhance the look of our beautiful eyes and make a complete artwork that deserves photography.

Here are some tips that can help you to grow your lashes and make them look healthy:

1. You can always nourish your eyelashes with olive oil to ensure that it is conditioned; you can do that by dipping a small piece of cotton into olive oil and pass it gently over your lashes before going to bed.

2. Vitamin E is a very well known vitamin that helps skin and is very common in anti-aging products and beauty properties. So, you will need to ensure a proper intake of Vitamin E for your lashes and for your skin as well. You will find Vitamin E in nuts, almonds, hazelnuts and peanuts and you will find it also in vegetables like Tomato and Spinach.

3. One great tip is massaging your eyelids, because gentle massage can stimulate the blood flow which helps your eyelash to grow as it transports nutrients faster through your body and it also releases all the stress from your eyes.

4. There are some kinds of food that enhances the eyelashes growth, like apricots, sweet potatoes, peaches, pumpkin, yellow squash and carrots. Generally, anything that is orange or yellow in color. Because that indicates it has beta-carotene which is necessary for new cell growth in skin and hair.

Mascara can also enhance the size of your lashes, just make sure you go for the perfect brand. You can check The MicaBella Mascara, which is a very exclusive 100 % natural cosmetic brand from LA, offered exclusively by us. It thickens and defines your lashes:

Moreover we highly recommend the new M2 Beauté Eyelash and Brow Renewing and Activating Serums that you can find here M2Beauté.

Follow these tips regularly, but I would like to ask you to be patient, because although eyelashes are actually hairs, they are the slowest growing hairs on the body.

The History of Abaya

Abaya, the black robe-like dress that keeps the identity of the Arabian women. What do you know about Abaya? Well, if we talked about the origins, some people think that it existed 4,000 years ago in the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia (which is now in Iraq) and that when Islam arose, it embraced the idea of the body covering and veiling.

In Jahiliya days, women way of dressing used to reveal their necks, chests and other parts of their bodies. They also used to draw their veils to the back. Accordingly, when Islam arrived, they were ordered to cover their bodies and hair in order to protect themselves from the acts of disrespect.

In pre-Islam urban centers, the women who were dressed in Abayas were seen as luxurious women from noble families who did not have to work. They were distinguished from maids and prostitutes, who were not allowed to cover their bodies.

Many people wondered why the most common colour in Abayas is BLACK? Well, the most probable answer is that black was a color that early women were able to easily create from the resources they had – goats mainly – and so black it was.

Abayas now come in different styles and cuts making quite a fashion, they have pretty colours, embroidery and beautiful ornamentations.

Now you can feel really elegant, and wander around in your Abaya like a princess. Because you will find royal designs that are made just for you to make you unique.

The natural healthy lips don’t only make you feel better and enhance your look, but it also make the people around you feel comforted when they look and talk with you. Because when they look at dry, flaky lips, they will definitely lose any interest in starting a conversation.

Everybody’s target – either he’s a male or she’s a female- is to have moisture lips. So how can you treat your lips well and achieve that? All you need to do is to follow these tips every day.

In the morning, your dry lips will need the brush-off… Yes… brush-off! Every morning ‘brush your lips ‘ with a toothbrush –a soft baby one – and after that apply some lip balm to them.

During the day, Sunrays can be the enemy of your lips just like they are for your skin. It can absorb moisture of your lips and leave them dry. So, if you have to be out in the sun or heat for a lot of time, then your lips will definitely need a defense by applying a ‘triple lipstick ‘, with moisturizers and sunscreen built right in.

Before going to bed, you will need a bed time story for your lips. But, this story will not be words; it will be applying the moisturizing cream on your lips to calm them after the long day. Do so regularly every night and you will wake up every morning with softer lips.

Haifa Wehbe – An Islamic Celebrity

Haifa Wehbe is a Lebanese actress and model. And she is one of the most famous singers in the Arab world and widely considered a sex symbol. That’s how she dresses, sexy.

Haifas mother is Egyptian and her father is Lebanese. So as a Muslima we would consider her to wear modest clothes as well. But there are hardly any pics where you can see her dressed modestly.

Maybe to dress sexy is part of her success. But we would wish to see her more often in modest – not necessarily traditional and old fashioned – clothing to express her religion and faith. There is plenty of modest and at the same time modern and trendy abayas,..

She doesn’t have to be an Arabic Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian to get even more famous,… we just love to hear her sing nicely.
