Make Up Tips for Job Seekers

When seeking for jobs in Yangon, a woman must look her best to attract future employers; after all, first impressions do matter and more often than not, we do judge a person by their cover. In this case your cover is your outward appearance which includes not just your clothing, but your face as well. Nowadays makeup has become quite a necessity and a well done face is sometimes considered a work of art. Unfortunately, a great number of ladies have no idea what proper job seeking makeup is. To help you snag that dream job, here are some terrific makeup tips.

The skin is your base, where all the magic happens. Do away with the multiple layers of foundation as well as the several shades lighter powder. What you want is to simply even out your skintone. If you want to use foundation, choose one that matches your skintone. For best results, try it on your neck and wait for 30 minutes, especially if you are a first time buyer as you might not know if you have acidic skin or not.  If foundation is not your thing, a CC cream or BB cream will do the job.


Pimples are among a woman's top ten enemies, especially if said blemish dares to appear on the day of your job interview. Hide it away with a woman's secret weapon: concealer. Partnered with a good color corrector and for sure that little spot is as good as gone. If it's a bit reddish, cover it with some green color corrector. Let the product set then cover with some concealer. Got tired eyes? If you have lighter skin, use a color corrector for those undereye circles and if you are medium to dark, an orange will do. After allowing it to set, cover with a concealer. Remember to go easy on the color corrector; a light coverage will do fine.


Lipstick has a certain power to it. On a day when a woman isn't in the mood for much makeup, a simple swipe of red lipstick can drastically change her look. In addition, a lipstick has multiple uses as it can be used as an emergency blush or eyeshadow. As you seek for a new job, stray away from bright, vivid colors. Instead, go for something called an MLBB or a My Lips But Better color. Choose a subtle color such as brown, beige or light coral.


Ditch the smokey eye, turquoise eyeliner and faux lashes while you job seek. Remember, this is something a little more formal, not a party. Keep everything simple and natural not as if you are one of those models in a LED Billboard advertising in the Philippines.

When it comes to eyeliner, if you are not used to using it, go for the pencil. Line your upper lid with a brown one then smudge away. For those used to using liquid liner, don’t go overboard by doing a winged look; instead, try to just stick to a thin line.

For your mascara, try doing this little trick to avoid any clumps: starting from the base, wiggle your mascara wand as you move towards the top. A couple of swipes ought to do it. If there are any clumps, comb through them with a lash comb or a clean spoolie.

If you plan to use eyeshadow, stick to a neutral palette. For the base, use one near your skintone. Next, something in the middle will do it such as a light brown or taupe will be perfect for the crease. Finally, go for something a little darker around your outer crease like charcoal.


When it comes to blush, you can never underdo it, just either perfect it or overdo it; swipe on a light color like a pinkish-coral to give you face just a little glow.
Remember to always do a trial or run through of your makeup the day before your interview to avoid errors. Keep in mind that when it comes to makeup, practice makes perfect. Good luck on your job seeking!

Don’t Believe These Home Care Myths!

Plenty of elderly people hire home care services. Why not? Caregiver services in Illinois and such home caregivers allow aging individuals to receive the assistance and care that they need in the comfort of their own homes. Instead of moving into a facility, a caregiver will be deployed to their houses to offer medical or non-medical assistance. It’s practical and easy!

Although hiring home care has a lot of benefits, there are still plenty of false ideas surrounding it. Unfortunately, these incorrect facts sometimes affect the way people perceive home care. If you want to know the truth, here are some myths against home care services that you should never believe.

Myth: You Don’t Have the Power to Choose the Caregiver

Plenty of things happen before a caregiver is dispatched to your loved one’s home. Among them, is the assessment of your aging parent’s needs. You will have to discuss with the agency the list of tasks that your elderly mother needs help with. Rest assured that your agency will try to choose a caregiver from their roster who is not only capable but perfectly suitable to your loved one’s personality and needs. If you find the caregiver lacking somehow, that’s fine – you can always discuss the probability of replacing him with the agency.

Myth: Only the Sick Needs Home Care

There are two types of home care: medical and non-medical. The former is offered to aging individuals who are in need of medical-related assistance. On the other hand, the latter is availed by elderly people who need personal care or peer-level companionship. Its services range from cleaning the house to assisting with bathing, cooking meals, and even driving an elderly person to her appointments! If your aging parent is having difficulty performing basic tasks or is becoming too forgetful, hiring elderly home care services might be help her tremendously.

Myth: Home Care Does Not Have a 24-Hour Care Option

In some instances, elderly people choose to live in a nursing home because they didn’t think that home care agencies offer round-the-clock care. This notion is false;home care agencies offer different options like hourly care, post-operative care, and – yes – even live in care. If your aging mother avails live in care assistance, a caregiver will be deployed to stay at her house. There, the caregiver will stay 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to assist your elderly parent with tasks like bathing, meal preparations, and other activities that she finds too difficult to accomplish on her own.

Myth: Family Caregivers are Better than Agency Caregivers

Some people believe that family caregivers are a better choice compared to agency caregivers. Since they know their loved ones better than the hired caregiver, they think that they can provide better assistance. Unfortunately, this is nothing but a myth. Although being a family caregiver is noble, it is not advised. Since you have other commitments (like your own family and day job, for instance), it’s possible that you are already very exhausted once you attend to your loved one’ needs. Emotions can also run rampant and since you did not have the right training, you might not be prepared to deal with the negative behavior that sometimes older people exude. On the other hand, professional caregivers have been trained and prepared by their agencies. This means that your aging mother is in good hands with an elderly home care caregiver.

There are some false notions about elderly home care but don’t let it stop you from availing their services for your aging parent. Home care is actually one of the best ways to help your loved one get the assistance and care that she needs in the easiest and most practical way ever!

When Teasing Becomes Bullying

Teasing is one of the best ways children bond with each other wherever they are, whether they are at a farm helping their father plant the next season’s rice or learning the fine art of critical thinking in one of the international schools in the Philippines.  Brothers tease their younger brothers about not wearing underwear while they were kids, sisters teasing each other about the boys they like, and friends teasing each other about what happened to a certain wind instrument at that one time at band camp.

Teasing is entertaining and can be a great vehicle for telling fun stories at family reunions or youth camps;however, it is important to remember that teasing is fun only when everybody is having fun—including the one being teased.

If the one being teased is not having the time of his life or if the teaser’s intent is to insult, threaten, or hurt the subject of the tease, then teasing takes a dark turn.  It becomes a vehicle for bullying behavior.  In fact, although most bullying incidents portrayed in the media often depicts physical violence, real-life bullies rarely start their bullying with physical violence. 

Bullying in real-life usually starts small and in a different form, which includes name calling, talking behind the victim’s back, making up stories to destroy the victim’s social standing, and yes, teasing.

Being teased and made fun of is never fun.  Most children who experience this form of bullying often make excuses not to go to school.  They lie and feign sickness, hoping that a single day’s lie would earn them a single day’s respite from all the bullying and teasing.  They feel unwanted, not liked, and unhappy.  They might even feel that all the teasing and bullying is somehow their fault.

Although no parent would like their children to be bullied or teased so much that they would rather stay at home than go outside;however, many parents also offer the wrong advice whenever they realize that their children are being teased incessantly while outside. These kinds of advice are rarely helpful.

Below are some examples:
·         Just forgive and ignore them, child.  Jesus said to give the other cheek. Although emulating Jesus Christ is not the worst advice parents can give their children, teaching them that it is okay to turn the other cheek whenever something bad happens to them is actually not a good idea, as doing so would effectively be turning them into doormats.  Doormats are excessively submissive people who often give in to others’ wishes and allows other people to walk all over them.
·         Mommy is busy. Go bother your father instead. Shifting the responsibility to the other parent is not doing the child being bullied or teased a favor.  Parents that do this will make their children feel unwanted, lonely, and isolated, which may exacerbate the problem.
·         He said what?  Stop being such a sissy and bash his face in the next time you see him!Teaching incessantly teased and bullied children to result to violence rarely works.  Violence only leads to a vicious cycle of escalating violence that rarely results in the problem being properly addressed.  Violence given is violence received.

Teasing and bullying cannot be avoided, and every children experiences a form of bullying or excessive teasing every day in their lives, which is why parents need the right strategies to help their children cope with excessive and incessant teasing.  

Below are two such strategies:

·         Parents should always be available. How willingly children will go to their parents for help or advice depends on their personality.  Some children ask for help overtly, some do not.  That they ask for help or not does not matter.  What matters is that they know that their parents are always there for them.  A single hug and words of love and encouragement can work wonders.

·         Parents should never interfere and only give advice. Sometimes all a bullied child needs is advice or, at the very least, someone to believe them.  Admitting to their parents that they are being bullied takes a lot out of children—especially those at the cusp of adolescence.  They may try to make up stories of their friend being bullied and will ask for advice.  Parents would do well to listen and look at the problem in their children’s perspective.  It would also good for parents to remember that, for children going to school, that school and all the people they encounter there are their entire life as they see it, and parents should give take this into account when they offer advice.

Children are in a metamorphosis.  What happens during their childhood will shape their decisions as they grow up—the memories that shape each decision can decide what kind of people they will turn out to be in the future.  Each moment is important.  A tease today can turn into a full-blown bullying incident tomorrow, which is why parents have to be vigilant.
