Some girls underestimate the importance of lower eyelashes, when doing their makeup. In this tutorial, we would like to highlight the dramatic difference between a bare eyelid and one featuring some makeup.

On the first picture you see the bare eyelid .

The second one pictures how it looks like with some mascara on the eyelashes.

The third one shows the dotted line, which makes a very thin black line and the forth one gets the actual lined eye.

The last two images depict the smudged and inner rimmed makeup.

Which one do you like best and which one would you wear on everyday basis – are you a fan of the more natural look or you like the dramatic effect more?

Best Way To Apply Concealer

If you hate the dark circles under your eyes, as they give the tired look and…older. For that reason I think that the concealer is a wonderful invention. Many girls do not know how to use it properly though – I noticed most of them are applying three  or four little dots under the eye lid, which they later mix together. It is good, but sometimes the substance itself gets into the little wrinkles and it seems ugly. I prefer the triangle way of applying, which allows better and smoother coverage. You can try this tomorrow morning and you will certainly not regret it.

Beauty makes up dependent on certain products such as the concealer and the foundations. We know that we should use only quality cosmetics, but remember that even the greatest quality one will not enable you with best results if you do not apply it properly.

How to Make Newspaper Effect Over Nails

The newspaper effect on nails is quite popular, as it is unusual, but very nice. Thankfully, it is not difficult to do it – all you need is nail polish (not very dark shade), newspaper and warm water.

Paint your nails and let the nail polish dry. Then cut a few newspaper strips and dunk your finger into the warm water. Wrap the wet nail with a piece of newspaper and make it extra wet if necessary. Use a napkin to press the paper onto the nail and stay like that for about 5 minutes. Carefully remove the newspaper and you will see the letters on your nails. Add a top coat and you are done.

We think this nail design is quite interesting and enjoyable to do, so definitely take your time to try it. At least, when you are bored, you can always read “the nails’.

 

 

Tarnished Copper Nails Tutorial

Have you seen the old copper statues and monuments, which went green, because of the weather conditions? Have you ever thought of a nail design in such style? If it seems impossible to you, I can assure you there is a way. All you need is proper nail polish colours a piece of sponge and a small dessert spoon. So, let`s start.

Find a copper-coloured nail polish (Old Park Lane used in this tutorial) and a variety of minty green and blue shades.

Paint the back of the spoon with the “copper”. Use the sponge to apply the other shades over the spoon (as shown on the picture). Use a slightly wet sponge to do so.

Take a different wet sponge to apply the mixture on the nails with gentle taps. Add as many layers as necessary. When you are done, use a top coat with a matte effect for best results.

Don`t forget to take a picture with a statue, while wearing this nail design – it will be quite fun!

How to Get Super Pouty Lips

Having a hard time trying to achieve sexy super pouty lips? Here are a few steps in order to achieve this look that pairs perfectly with a dark smokey eye or a simple clean fresh look!

What you will need: lip balm; lip primer/lip erase/ foundation/concealer; lip pencil; lipstick and lip gloss.

First of all you want a clean canvas much like how you use foundation to achieve an even and clean look on your face as a whole; you want to do the same with your lips. Since most people do their lips last, start with applying a clear lip balm on your lips before applying the rest of your makeup so that your lips will be nice and moist and soft and ready to go once you get to this last step in your routine. I like to use Blistex Deep Moisture Renewal Sunscreen/Lip Protectant. You can use whatever lip balm treatment you would like for this step. You can also use MAC’s Lip Conditioner in a jar or tube.

Once you are ready to begin you will want to wipe the excess lip balm off your lips so that you can apply a lip primer/lip erase such as one from MAC Cosmetics or Urban Decay. You can skip this step if you want or you can even use your regular foundation/powder. The point of this step is to even out the color and texture of your lips, and create an even base so that your lipcolor has something to stick to. Again if you don’t want to do this step you don’t have to. Some people find this step unnecessary or too drying on the lip.

Using the right lip pencil is crucial at this stage. Even if you are only applying lip gloss defining your lip can save you from the lip gloss or lipstick from bleeding outside of the lines and in the case of lip gloss it can save you from looking like you are drooling. Not a good look on anyone! If you are going for a super clean look you will want to choose a pencil that is a nude or light pink and for a darker look you may want to venture into a purple or even a black pencil (you can use a black eyeliner pencil if you are going for a black or dark wine color).

Start by lining your top lip first. Use light feathering strokes to outline your lip. Begin with your cupids bow. You don’t need to go outside your natural lip line for this look. Instead of over-emphasizing the cupids bow try to make the lines more of a straight line or slightly curved line rather than a strict ‘V’ shape. This is more flattering on most people. Also at the corners you might want to slightly draw the line inwards to draw more attention to your bottom lip.

Next outline your bottom lip. This is where you can over-emphasize your natural lip line, but be careful to only do this in the center of the lip. Don’t forget to line the corners and then fill your lips in entirely. *note this is very important to do if you have not used some sort of primer or base

Once you have finished lining your lips you can move onto the lipstick. You can use the tube or a brush for this step. All depends on your comfort level. Using a lip brush is sometimes easier to use when you are manipulating your lip line (e.g. exaggerating your natural lip line or making the lip line look smaller; which we are doing both for this look); but if you are comfortable just using the lipstick itself that is fine as well. You will want to use a darker lipstick than lipgloss, or use a clear lipgloss if you are going for a nude lip, or even a slightly lighter nude or pink gloss. You will want to avoid glittery glosses. Also using a matte finished lipstick works best for this look. MAC has the Mattene lipsticks that work great for this and Rimmel has some excellent glosses including a black gloss that will work if you are using a matte black or purple lipstick.

Once you have the lipstick applied its time for the gloss. You don’t want to put this all over the lips, just in the center of the lip on both the top and bottom. Just purse your lips together a few times and do the finger trick in order to keep lipstick off your teeth.

If you happen to have lip piercings everything is the same except for the lining of the lips as you may have to line around the actual piercing. Try to keep the center of the lip line thicker than the sides and make sure to wipe the jewelry off so that there isn’t product all over the rings so the look doesn’t turn into a gooey mess!

Last step is to use concealer with a small brush to clean up your lip line ever so lightly which also helps to keep your lips looking fresh and crisp. Do this lastly to define the line more. You can still skip this step if you wish but it really can make a huge difference. Voila you are done and your pouty lips will surely get noticed!
