Make up for working women

If you have a clear skin, leave out foundation. After cleansing, apply a sunscreen with a built-in moisturizer. Pressed powder or powder compact is useful. Pay more attention to the oily areas of the face. Press the powder all over the face and neck, with a slightly damp sponge. This helps it to set and last longer. 

If you wish to apply foundation, use a water-based one. Add one or two drops of water for a lighter coverage. The foundation should be as close to your skin colour as possible. For eye make-up stick to eye pencils, or line your eyeswith brown or gray eye shadow for a softer effect. Then, apply mascara in two light coats. Apply one coat. Allow it to dry. Comb out the lashes with an eyelash comb or brush. Then apply the second coat and comb out. 

For lipstick, avoid very dark colours. They look darker in fluorescent lights. Go for pinks, copper, bronze, burgundy or wine colour. Or, use light pastel colours like mauve or pink, or wear only lip gloss. Lastly, apply a light cologne or perfume….nothing too overpowering. 

Make-up for the working woman must last right through the day. In an air-conditioned office, make-up stays fresh enough, but if you travel, you need to renew your make-up, specially in summer. Carry fragrant wet tissues, to refresh the skin and remove grease and sweat. A powder compact is really handy to get rid of that oily look. First wipe with the tissues and then dab powder. You need lipstick to touch-up after lunch. Carry a small bottle of cologne, or your favourite deodorant. 

Although long hair is in fashion, avoid keeping it loose at work. One tends to keep fussing with the hair. Most distracting! If you have long hair, put it up in a roll, or pin it up, tie it back in a pony tail. Actually, pony tails are the trend, whether low or high, tied back with ribbons or clip. Many kinds of hair accessories are available, but they should not be too decorative for work. You can even curl the ends of the hair with curlers and then tie them in a pony tail, or pin then up with a clip.

Braids (plaits) may also look nice for work, although it may take time. Braids for work hairstyle can be done on long and medium length hair. Divide your hair into three parts and intertwine it like a rope. Towards the end of the braid, use elastic band or a ribbon to tie it up. Braids look neat on young working women.

As far as the new trends are concerned, the more natural look in hair is making its way in, with a look of ease. Keep the hair away from the face. If you have short hair, wear it softly and naturally layered. Even in hair colour, natural colours like browns are the trend. You can have subtle colours with natural highlights. 
The bob is back in fashion and will be the trend for short hairstyles in the coming seasons. For short hair, you can also go for the slightly tousled look if you wish to be in. Not, harsh or obviously structured, but rather a careless and casual look. 

If you have shoulder length hair and wish to leave it open, condition it after shampoo, so that it is soft, smooth and manageable.

End of the Desktop PC

We announced many years, the PC will die sets. Why? And especially what our future will be made computer?

A change of habits
In recent years, consumer habits and desires have changed. We have seen a sharp decline in sales of fixed pc (tower / monitor / keyboard / mouse) in favor of a higher proportion of sales for laptops.

This problem has increased in 2008, when could have seen an explosion in notebook sales worldwide. It is from this year that sales of laptops have overtaken in volume sales of desktop PCs. The notebook laptop are of a size ranging from 9 to 12 inches, which perfectly reflect the new expectations of consumers (mobility, small footprint).

A recent Deloitte study found that in 2011 it would sell 375 million smart phones and tablets of 50 million against 390 million PCs (200 million laptops, 150 million desktop PCs and 40 million notebooks).

Today's computer manufacturers must cope with new challenges, and begin a new turn because a new future computer seems to be emerging.

"The PC is a truck"
Steve Jobs (Apple boss) announced in June 2010 during an interview: "When we were an agrarian nation, all cars were trucks. But from the moment when the population began to migrate to cities, people began to use cars. I think the PC will suffer the same fate as the trucks. Less and less people will be in the utility. "

Today Mac sales represent only 33% of Apple's business. The ipad and iphone now accounts for Apple, our future with computers. Consumers do not want to complicate things, everything should be done naturally. His music, applications, photos must accompany and be accessible anywhere in seconds. It is widely noted that Apple's touch pad in front. Moreover, with its App Store model, these new mobile devices are a source of income more important for Apple. For Apple, the key now is software.

A system in "the cloud"
For Google, the approach is slightly different. In addition to Android, which has now surpassed Apple in terms of overall sales, the leading Internet search engine is preparing its own operating system. After launching in 2011 Android 3.0, software specifically dedicated to touch pads, Google will launch Chrome OS. This operating system completely turned to the internet has simply dethroned Microsoft's ambition and Windows. All user data will be stored online, email and internet will be available in seconds without having to install applications, or configure anything in a notebook computer type.

In addition, there are whispers in the IT industry that Google is also preparing its own touch pad nothing surprising really.

Leading operating systems ever since, Microsoft seems to want to start too fast. A shelf of windows 7 does not meet a great success, because the system does not really seem suited to the desires of mobile users. The first rumors for Windows 8 show a convergence between Windows and its latest operating system for smart phones, Windows Phone 7. In addition, Windows 8 will be fully adapted to new architectures (processor, memory, etc...) Mobile.

How would we use computers in the future? Only time will tell. But the shift seems well underway. Sales of touch pads explode worldwide, we are connected to the internet 24 hours 24 with our smart phones, and desktop PCs are becoming increasingly rare in homes.

Visit to Taj Mahal

That is what we find in Agra. From the most luxurious to the most miserable. From the most lavish to the most degrading.On the one hand, the majesty of one of the seven wonders of the world, the Taj Mahal. On the other hand, Agra, a chaotic, confusing, where travelers can hardly walk twenty feet without being harassed by a seller or a child begging.

The visit to the Taj Mahal, which must exist, we will enter a world of luxury and perfection, that Shah Jahan wanted to stage in memory of his late wife, for the construction of such divine treasure held in honor of it was his second wife, died giving birth to her fourteenth child.

This sublime mausoleum is the most admired monument in the country and is considered the finest example of Mughal architecture.

The entry is exactly cheap (about 12 euros), but coming to Agra and not seeing this beauty in white marble would be a crime.
In fact, the vast majority of travelers who come to this town in the state of Uttar Pradesh, it is with the only motivation to look at this work of art and his visit to Agra takes less than a day ... As our point of view is a mistake because the area offers a number of other treasures, overshadowed by the omnipresence of the Taj Mahal, are condemned to an undeserved indifference.
We would be talking, for example, the Agra Fort. Without a doubt, elsewhere, this monument would be the jewel of the city ... but being the neighbor of the Taj Mahal is not easy, even when it is one of the most notable strengths of Mughal India.

Akbar also highlight the Mausoleum erected in honor of the greatest of the Mughal emperors. Its structure, sandstone and marble, will be well portrayed if we have to make pictures to the setting sun.

And just 40 km west of Agra, find a magnificent fortified ghost city, Fatehpur Sikri, which for only fourteen years was the capital of the Mughal empire.

But the merits are sometimes not enough, and Agra is still considered, in view of many, just as the city where the Taj Mahal.

Perhaps if it were not so chaotic Agra, so dirty, so complicated. If I had the odd decent hostel in which to stay ... travelers stay longer than 24 hours and would have the opportunity to see and know a little bit of this city whose poverty and dirt contrasts paradoxically with the grandeur and cleanness of the monument which has become famous.
