It is sometimes a struggle waking up in the morning, especially after having not so sound sleep. But one can fake the appearance of a good night’s sleep with some cool make-up effects.

From the power of eyeshadow to a mini-lesson in applying mascara, here’s six bits of advice that can make anyone bright-eyed every single day, reports huffingtonpost.com.


And who better to tell us about them than the women on the streets of New York? Here are the tips from them:

* Use your nude liners: Jordan says: “(I use) a nude eyeliner on the inner water line because I’m exhausted all the time and this takes out the redness and makes you look awake.”

* Get fuller lashes with powder: Emily says: “Sweeping powder over my eyelashes is a great way to make them thicker and elongate the wear of my mascara. I also like holding a piece of tissue underneath my bottom lashes when applying mascara to them; this protects my skin from being smeared with mascara while allowing me to be more thorough with the mascara application.”

* Refresh with some eyedrops: Renee says: “I used to work for Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell and this is a trick that all the models use: Put in eye drops just before you have a photo taken, especially if your eyes are tired, and it wakes you up — your eyes look fresh and rested!”

* Double up on your product supply: Sizwe says: “I almost always wear more than one mascara, usually a combination of a lengthener and a thickener.”

* Use a bright eyeshadow, like white, to fake a well-rested look: Jemma says: She makes her eyes look awake with lash-defining mascara and a little bit of white eyeshadow dusted on her eyes’ inner corners.

* Perfect eye-opening winged liner, on-the-go: Kate says: “I start with a cat-eye and then I just blend. I put on both brown and navy. Navy went on this morning and (then) I layered the brown on while I was on the subway and continued to blend.” (Bollywood Country)

People stroll early morning at the Mumbai promenade.

Prior to the brutal second wave of the pandemic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had cautioned civil services probationers against developing the despised "babu mindset". He gave the invaluable piece of advice while addressing civil services probies at the well-known Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration in Mussoorie via video-conferencing. He also outlined the keystone mantra of "minimum government and maximum governance".

With the recent collapse of the under-construction flyover in Bandra Kurla Complex which injured 14 labourers, it seems like the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has got the PM's keystone mantra all wrong. The recent flyover collapse isn't an isolated incident, in fact, a month ago a similarly bemusing incident took place in the eastern part of the suburbs.

Pind Daan at Jagannath Ghat, Kolkata.

The Pitru Paksha starts after the Full Moon day, and this day marks the beginning of the waning phase of the Lunar cycle. This event is roughly of 15-day period, and is of great significance. From this day, rituals like Tarpan or Tarpanam and Shradh are carried out to pay respects to dead relatives and ancestors.

It is believed that from the very first day till the last day, the unhappy souls of the deceased return to the Earth to see their family members. So, in order to ensure that the dead attain Moksha, i.e. to get liberation, family members of these souls quench their thirst and satisfy their hunger by performing the Pind Daan, which includes offering food consisting of cooked rice and black sesame seeds. The literal meaning of Pind Daan is the act of satisfying those who no longer exist physically.
