Koinobori (鯉幟) "carp streamer" are carp-shaped wind socks flown in Japan to celebrate Tango no Sekku (端午の節句), a traditional calendrical event on Children's Day. These wind socks are made by drawing carp patterns on paper, cloth or other nonwoven fabric to flutter in the wind. They are also known as satsuki-nobori (皐幟). Children's Day takes place on May 5. Koinobori are hung from April to early May, in honor of children in the hope that they will grow up healthy and strong.
Apply blush according to your face shape. In order to apply blush where it will be most flattering on you, first determine your face shape. Blush not only adds color, but also contours and defines your cheek bones. The way you apply your blush can accentuate your best features and also soften those that are perhaps too prominent.
Make a $5 tube of mascara look as good as the results from a $25 tube by holding a business card up along the inside edge of your lashes and sweeping the brush against it with your other hand. This way your lashes can't bend out of the way of the brush and you end up coating every lash all the way to the tip. The results will leave you wide-eyed in more ways than one.
