Today's question is, "What is the best thing for great eyelashes?"
Well, my biggest tip is learning how to properly apply your mascara. And it's not as hard as you think it is.
The trick is to make sure that you have a firm grip on your eye and that you start from the base of your lash and wiggle upwards.
For a mascara application, you want to make sure that you have a firm grip on the side of your eye and pull it taut. This will give you a firm foundation and the stability to really get very close to the lash line with your mascara wand.
You want to pull the base taut, look down, put it as close to the lash line as possible and then wiggle up.
Go back, closest to the lash line as possible and wiggle up. This ensures that you get a full rich look with your mascara application.
You can go back for a second coat if you feel that you want a little bit more of a thickening and volumizing look. But once again, remember, start at the base, wiggle and move up.
Today's question is, "How do I get flashy eye shadow?" Well, there's actually multiple ways you can go around doing this. But, one of my favorite techniques is to add a couple of complementary darker and vibrant colors.
In the video above, the model has some beautiful bright purples around her eyes and to get it to be a little bit more flashy and fun, I'm added a deep blue.
This deep blue is going to be really beautiful against the purple and the two colors will make it very vibrant.
I'm going to concentrate this blue on this outer corner right here, at this inner V and bring it up just a little bit throughout the eye.
I'm also going to bring it and blend it a little bit with that purple, making it even more smoky.
This vibrant color can be used on the red carpet for an evening out, and as you can see it really popped the eye, made her look like bright, made her look vibrant.
And it's a great way to get that flashy look without doing too much on the eyes or the face. Keep the rest of the face simple with clean skin and beautiful peach cheek and a nude lip and you're good to go.
Today's question is how to reduce swelling in the eyes when you first wake up. Well, the answer is to make sure that you're preventing any swelling in the eyes the night before.
One of my favorite tips and tricks is a product called Midnight Recovery Eye Cream by Kiehls. This is a miracle worker in a little tube. It actually helps to take care of your eyes and restore your eyes so that when you wake up, you look refreshed.
no puffiness, dark circles are lighter and your eyes look like you've been sleeping eight hours, even if you've only gotten four hours of sleep.
These have essential oils and lovely botanicals that really help to moisturize, hydrate and refresh the eye area. This is a secret tube that almost every makeup artist I know recommends it to their models and actresses, so you don't have to worry about puffiness in the morning because you're taking care of it while you sleep.
Before you go to bed at night, you can even keep this by your bed for a quick application. Make sure that you take a few drops of the product and simply apply it around the orbital bone of the eye. You don't need to put it all around the eye, just concentrate on this outer area, pat it in, do not rub as that can really irritate and pull at the sensitive eye area. Simply pat it into the eye.
Today we're gonna be talking about cosmetics to conceal a dark circle. Now dark circles can really be a frustration for those of us that suffer from them. I know, I'm one of them. They can instantly make you look really tired and just kind of take down the look vibrancy of your face. It's one of my biggest frustrations. But, the good thing is there are a lot of amazing concealers and correctors out there that can make you look wide awake and absolutely banish those dark circles. These are a few of my favorites. I absolutely love It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye. I mean the name just says it all. It's very dense, it has a great amount of coverage, and the colors are all a peach base, which is the key to banishing those blue undertones of your dark circles. Another one that I love is new NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. It has a light reflecting quality to it, once again a beautiful peach base, really really wonderful for those days when you don't need as heavy as a coverage, but still want to make sure that you have that brightness under the eye. And last but not least, I absolutely love SmashBox Cosmetics Photo Op Under Eye Brightener for midday touch ups. It has a really nice kind of shimmer to it that's not too overwhelming and helps to really brighten up the look of the eyes during the day when you might be getting a little bit tired and those circles tend to pop back up. So I hope that helps, and I hope that you try out these cosmetics to help your dark circles.
Today's question is what nail polish to wear with silver shoes. Well, silver is a very bright and bold color on its own so you don't want to clash with that. I would suggest white, clear or if you'd like a darker color, look into a deep gray slate or why not even try black. Those colors are very on trend right now and won't compete with the bright color of the silver. Here are some of my favorites:
Today, I’m going to be showing you different styles of semi-permanent eyeliner. Now, semi-permanent eyeliner can either be in the form of a gel eyeliner or a felt tip pen liner, and I prefer the felt tip pen liner – I feel it gives you a lot more flexibility, and you can create a few more different and exciting classic looks with them.
I’m here to show you how in the video above!
Step one: We’re going to start with the thinnest type of liner, and this is really just to enhance the look at the base of your eyelashes, something that gives you a quick and easy thick, voluminous eyelash look.
Step Two: give a little bit of a wing on the end of the eyeliner just by simply doing a flick near the lower and farthest part of the eyelashes.
Step three: would be to make a cat eye. Now, this is very popular for night or for any type of smoky eye look. To do this, simply start with the original thin eyeliner, and have it increase in size and thickness towards the outer rim of the eye.
And, there you have it: Different styles of semi-permanent eyeliner.
Today I'm going to show you how to freshen up your face. We all get tired, and during the day with work and errands our makeup can sometimes get a little dry and a little cakey. The easiest way that I like to keep the makeup and the look of your face fresh throughout the day is to use a makeup spritzer. makeup spritzers usually contain a really fine amount of essential oils, antioxidants and water that help keep your face moisturized and also keeps the makeup from drying out or looking cakey. I simply keep a thermal spring water spray in my purse at all times. Every few hours throughout the day, I hold the can six inches away from my face and spray it lightly on my face, not to wet it, but to just moisten it enough to give a fresh glow and refresh your makeup. If you have oiler skin, look for a facial spray that has teakwood oil in it, which will help to keep your face refreshed and your oil at bay.
