Tips for Perfect Eyelashes

If the idea of wearing fake eyelashes doesn't feel very appealing to you like it doesn't to me, try to apply some easy tips and tricks to get perfect eyelashes for the ultimate look. Having beautiful eyelashes is an important aspect of the makeup routine.

One of the most important aspects in eyelash care is making sure that makeup is properly removed every single time. When it comes to your eyelashes this aspect is important because your eyelashes might become weaker and fall off if you neglect this simple procedure.

Make sure you insist on the roots of the eyelashes the most as these are more likely to be affected.If you want stronger, longer lashes nourishing them is essential. Luckily caring for your eyelashes is not difficult at all, requiring little conscious effort. In fact an overnight treatment consisting of applying castor oil on your eyelashes is all you need to speed up eyelashes growth.

Choosing the right type of mascara wand is one of the simplest and most effective ways to get a sultry look.

Curved mascara wands are an excellent choice for those who want to work several eyelashes simultaneously and who want curled lashes without using lash curlers. Flexible rubber wands are a good choice for those who want extra eyelash volume while comb wands are great for lengthening and defining the eyelashes. However a mascara wand with short bristles is the best choice if you have short eyelashes. Another simple tip when choosing mascara brushes is to make sure that the bristles are separated and perky instead of being flat.
If you normally apply two coats of mascara it is a good idea to wait for the fist coat to dry as it can clump, especially if you use a waterproof mascara, which is especially formulated to dry more quickly than other types of mascara. Also to get a smooth finish and eliminate clumps a last comb is a useful tool. Alternatively using a faded brush is a great way to get feathery lashes.

If you are in a hurry make sure to apply mascara on the lower lids first instead of the upper ones to get a natural finish and avoid mascara transfer. However regardless of the method you use make sure to keep mind the normal lifespan of mascara products to avoid eye infections or weakening your eyelashes. Most beauty experts recommend replacing mascara every 3 months or at least every 6 months to prevent any problems that might occur.

Dark skin Tone & Makeup

Who ever said colored skin wasn't beautiful, should go shoot themselves in the leg. The thing with we darker skin tones is that, colors seat well on our faces without it being too extreme or harsh. It just blends in with out skin tone.........
Colors like in Pink shades, wine, gold, coral, green and even silver goes well with dark skin tones just like the pictures you are seeing.

Press On Eyeshadow

Came across this while surfing the web, isn't this kool? Not everyone has that patience, the time or the ability to create gorgeous and creative makeup styles. And some of us are just not as creative and artistic to even come up with looks.

Makeup Tips for Different Eye Shapes

Every face comes with different eye shapes, some are strongly defined and some just fall under the typical physical eye shapes of Round, Oval, and Almond shaped eyes. Am going to be talking more on the strongly defined shapes.

  • Prominent Eyes

Like the name implies...'prominent'. Big bulging eyes. For prominent eye shapes, makeup can help reduce the appearance if bulging, or bugging out. To make the eye appear as if it is receding a bit more into the face, use a dark shade of eye shadow near the lash line and base of the lid. Use a slightly lighter shade for the crease, and blend outward towards the brow bone.Also the use of your liquid liner would also help thin out the eyes abit and make it look smaller.
