Application Tips

I LOVE SMOKEY EYES! Sexy, mysterious, alluring, chic, cool! It seems really complicated, right? Not with my smokey eye kit! It absolutely takes all the guesswork out of it. Just smooth on my cream to powder base, this will keep your smokey eyes smoldering all day. Then, take the lightest shadow and lightly dust it all over the lid all the way to the browbone. Next, take the medium tone and lay it from the lashline to just past the crease of your eye. If you have a flatter shaped eye, like me, just go up right past where you can fell your eyeball sit in your socket, then blend up. Take the darkest tone and run that all over the lashline, top and bottom. Finally, finish off with the pencil liner on top.

The shades in all kits (Brownstone, Skyscraper, and Central Park, get it? CITY chick?) are softer than harsh blacks, so you can have smokin’ eyes anytime.

Beauty Tips: How To Apply Basic Make Up Application

31 May

Let’s face it: Some women are not born with the ability to paint their pout perfectly or dust their eyelids with the best colors for their skin tone. For women without the makeup artist gene, you can create a fabulous face that is simple to apply — without creating a beauty disaster. Whether you want to up your batting average with lush lashes or brighten your eyes with a flattering shade of shadow, swipe on your daily dose of self-confidence with professional makeup tips that’ll get you a few steps closer to drop-dead gorgeous.

 

1.

Prep skin for liquid, cream or powder foundation with a moisturizer made for your skin type. Place a pea-sized portion of moisturizer into your palm. Massage product into your skin using your fingertips.

 

2.

Apply a dime-sized amount of liquid or cream foundation to your face with a dampened sponge, to get a smooth and dewy finish. Next, swipe on a powder foundation with a large powder brush. Using the same large brush, dust face with a translucent powder to set the liquid or cream foundation. Carefully blend makeup and powder at the jawline and neck with a fluffy, blush brush.

 

3.

Create a sexy smoky eye,to dress up eyes for evening. Prep eyelids with a dab of concealer, applied with your fingertips, to create a smooth canvas for the shadow. Using an eyeshadow brush, sweep a neutral taupe or beige shadow color across the lid. Add a darker black, gray or navy shadow into the crease to add smoke to the eyes. Line the eyes with black eyeliner. As a final touch; finish with two coats of mascara.

 

4.

Use a large blush brush to apply a powdery blush color to the center of your cheeks and toward your ears. For light, medium or dark-colored skin, wipe a pink, dusty rose or peach hued blush, to get flushed in a flash. To intensify the color for nighttime, deposit more color on your cheeks with another swipe of the blush along your cheekbones. If you prefer cream formulations over powder, apply and blend cream blush to the apples of cheeks with your fingers.

 

5.

To create the perfect red lip, line lips with a flesh-colored lip pencil or liner; blend to soften. Layer one coat of a red lip stain on your lips. Celebrity makeup artist Carmindy Bowyer suggests you, “follow with a moisturizing red lipstick. But, avoid red lip-gloss as it gets messy fast.”

 

6.

Use an eyelash curler to curl lashes and open the eye area. Hold the curler on your lashes for 3 to 5 seconds. To apply mascara like a pro, hold the wand horizontally at the base of your lashes. As you move the wand from the root to the tip, wiggle the wand from side to side. The experts at Covergirl recommend you, “let mascara dry for 10 seconds. Replace the wand at the base of the lashes, and wiggle again as you move up the lashes to thicken.”

Beauty Tips: How To Wear Your Make Up For A Job Interview

28 May

 

When you are getting yourself ready for a job interview, everything matters, even the way you choose to put on your makeup. You don’t want to doll yourself up like you’re going out for a night on the town, but you also don’t want to risk looking unpolished by showing up at the interview with a bare face. For best results, find a middle ground — somewhere in between nothing and heavily made up.

 

1.

Dab on concealer to cover up any dark areas on your face. Follow up with a application of foundation that matches your skin tone. Dust your whole face with transparent face powder to set the stage for the rest of the makeup.

 

2.

Select eyeliner, blush, eye shadow, mascara and lipstick in low-key, neutral shades that match with your hair, skin tone and eyes to keep things conservative. Don’t try to match your makeup to your outfit.

 

3.

Swipe on neutral eye shadow, using light colors to highlight under the brow area and on the lid, and darker colors in the crease. Apply eyeliner with a light touch. Avoid thick, heavy lines or liquid liner, which can come off as harsh. Stick with mascara on the top lashes only, with extra attention to the lashes at the outer corner of your eyelid to give them an uplifted look.

 

4.

Pop a smile and color the area directly underneath the apples of your cheeks with a few strokes of blush. Again, make sure it blends well with your coloring. Apply a neutral lipstick. Nix the deep reds or hot pinks — not an interview look.

 

Tips & Tricks

 

 

The same goes for your fingernails. If you like a little color on your nails, keep it conservative for the interview.

 

When it comes to eye makeup, lipstick and blush, go for products with descriptors such as “cream,” “matte” and “translucent” to nail the most natural look.

 

Investigate your eyebrows. Calm unruly brows with eyebrow gel. Fill them in with a colored pencil if they’re too light or too sparse.

 

Frosted, iridescent, overly bright or heavily lined — don’t do it. None of it looks good for a job interview.

 

Don’t refresh your lipstick or powder your nose during the interview. Do it before and live with it.

 

Forgo globby, thick mascara. Less really is better.

quiero uno     October 14, 2010
Reviewer: geraldine jimenex from guayana, bolivar Venezuela
Como Hago párrafo comprarlo soy de Venezuela

SUMMARY: I am absolutely putting these brushes at the top of my Christmas list for this year. As many of you already know and that follow me on my youtube channel.  You know that I am a huge fan of make up, hair, fashion and fitness.

So with make up being at the top of my list for #1 must haves. I always been a huge fan of my Mac make up brushes for a few years now. I absolutely do love them as well as my Chanel brushes that I currently own.

When it comes to good quality make up brushes I am willing to pay a little bit more. To get the best look out of my make up. As well as the best performance these brushes deliver.

It’s nice to have brushes that look good. However, it’s more important to me of the quality of the hair fiber’s that are being used. Who wants to feel harsh bristles against their soft skin. Everyone loves softness and of course a nice packaging is always a plus but not a need.

I will definitely keep you posted once I actually order my Sigma brushes. After doing the research myself and watching many beauty guru’s on youtube. I heard nothing but the best in Sigma Reviews for premium brushes.

So if your looking for good quality make up brushes, or maybe starting out in make up check out Sigma brushes.

Add this to your Christmas wish list! They make great gift ideas not just for the Holiday’s but all through the year!

As well as great stocking stuffer’s! Happy Holidays!

Dare to be beautiful~
