Makeup steps

How to start your makeup application? Foundation first or eye makeup? As you are checking the You Tube videos you will see so many different makeup application techniques and definitely you will be confused.
Makeup-tips-for-beginners
makeup steps
We are here to help you sorting out this confusion. So lets see the makeup steps:
  1. Make sure your face is clean, the makeup will look much better on a clean skin than to add some makeup on to the existing makeup.
  2. Use a toner, the toner cleans up your skin perfectly, refreshing it and closing the pores, basically preparing your skin for the makeup application.
  3. Moisturise, especially if you have a dry skin!
  4. Depending on a foundation type apply primer. The primer will  prepare your skin for a foundation and will make your makeup lasting longer.
  5. Apply foundation, all over the face, eyelids, under the eyes, blend it to the neck area also.
  6. When is the foundation perfect? When you can't see it because none wants to see the foundation just the flawless skin, forget about the caked up, mask effect foundation! That is out of trend for a long time.
step-by-step-makeup-tutorial

    7. Correct the skin imperfections. Most of the time we are mixing up the correctors with concealers. The correctors are in colours (yellow, peach, green and orange) and are useful in correcting the dislocations on  our face. 8.Then conceal it! Because of the concealers your skin will be green or orange depends what colours are you applying you have to conceal  it. That means the concealers are skin colours. 9.Contour and highlight and of course blend it!

  Now you have a question why in this order? There is a logical explanation for this. When you start with a foundation you do 60% of the job and you will have a flawless canvas to work on. All the eyeshadow colours will show much better on the already corrected skin. Even if you do a smokey look or working with dark colours you can easily avoid the fall outs by applying translucent powder under the eye area before starting with eye makeup. This technique is faster and more efficient all you need is to practice Stay with us tomorrow as we will talk about dos and donuts in your makeup routine ! Have a nice day ladies

Highlighter

 Hi Everyone!

Our topic for today is all about highlighting!
You can learn what is the effect and how to apply
Before beginning your highlighting and contouring, you must first determine your face shape.  Faces can be oval, rectangular, round, heart-shaped, oblong, diamond-shaped, or triangular (including inverted triangular).  To determine your face shape,  pull all of your hair back tightly and examine your face in the mirror, looking for the following attributes.  A measuring tape may be used to measure the length and width of the face for a more precise determination. OVAL: Oval-shaped faces have a length equal to 1.5 times the width of the face, with forehead and jaw equal widths. RECTANGULAR: Rectangular faces are 1/3 longer than the width of the face and have strong angles on the forehead and at the jawline. ROUND: Round faces are as wide as they are long, but with soft, rounded edges. HEART-SHAPED: Heart-shaped faces have the most width at the cheek, eye, and forehead areas, with a narrow to pointy chin.  Sometimes they will also have a high forehead. OBLONG: Oblong faces are as long as it is wide.  Straight sides, a high forehead, and larger than average distance between the bottom of the lip and the tip of the chin are common attributes of the oblong face. DIAMOND-SHAPED: Diamond-shaped faces are characterized by a narrow forehead and a narrow chin with the widest point at the cheeks. TRIANGULAR (and INVERTED TRIANGULAR): Triangular faces are wide at the forehead and narrowest at the jawline; inverted triangular faces are widest at the jawline and narrowest at the forehead.Determining your face shape will help you decide where to place your highlights and contours and what features you’d like to define or downplay.

Highlighting certain features of the face can be super flattering for the spring time, if done properly. By illuminating specific areas of the face, you’re putting them in the spotlight, but don’t think taking a face powder with tons of shimmer and applying it all over will give you a flattering look. All good things must come in moderation (even glitter).When it comes to brightening any part of the skin, it’s always a good idea to stick with the “less is more” mindset. Features like cheek bones, under the brow and cupids bow, nose area, chin and forehead are all prime targets to apply some sort of illuminator. We put together every highlighter tip for your face, from where to put a brightener to which products you should be using. Take a look through the slideshow above to see some of our favorite celebrities exemplifying the highlighted.

Blusher application and the right colour for you

Hi guys welcome back. Yesterday we talked about False Lashes!   Today we talk about blushes!   We have all seen those people that were far too much blusher and look a bit like a clown. This often causes many of us to stay away from blusher and not use it for fear of looking like a fool. The aim of this article is to explain the benefits of using blusher and how to apply it to get the right effect. When Blusher is used correctly it will add a natural glow to the skin as well as adding contours to the face. It is a great tool and should appear in any woman's makeup bag. What Type of Blusher? When looking for blusher you will find you can get it as a powder, cream of even a gel. They all have different qualities and it is a good idea to pick one that you feel comfortable using. The creams and gels will stay on the longest but the powders will come with more choice of colour. Powder must be applied over foundation whereas other types can be applied on bare skin. What Colour should You Choose? When choosing the colour of your blusher, you should first consider your skin tone and then, the look that you want to achieve. Now let's consider the types of colours and how they work. Cool colours - These are colours that tend to have a blue undertone and will add freshness and a healthy glow to your face. For light skin go for a pink and a plum or similar will work for darker skin. If you are wearing a brown or orangey lipstick don't use a cool colour for your blusher. Warm Colours - These will normally have orange undertones and they work best for contouring the cheeks and adding definition to the face. If you have a light complexion then you should think about using a light apricot whereas a burnt orange may be better for those with darker skin. Don't use a warm blusher if you are going to wear a cool lipstick or a lip colour that has a blue undertone. Universal Colours - These are those shades that generally come in between the cool and warm colours. The advantage of these is that they suit everyone and go with any share of lipstick. For light skin you are best to go with a peach, for medium skin rosewood works well and red is best for darker skin. Natural Colours - These are the neutral beiges and browns. These have very little red in them and are best used as a bronzer rather than a blusher and can in fact be use alongside your usual blusher. Unknown-3   TIP for the day:If you were at all worried about blusher you should not be now. Experiment, try different colours, just remember that blusher should be subtle and look natural Stay with us tomorrow as we will share some awesome tips about your makeup steps and how to do them in a right way. This will save you some time and money of course! Don't miss it!   IMG_8457email _MG_4946

All about false lashes and how to apply it

12605495_1751012468451004_8182255944933402758_o
 1
 Size the lashes. Before gluing the lashes on, you will need to make sure they are not too wide for your eye. Hold the lash strips up against your eyelid, and trim them down on the sides if necessary.
  • If the lashes are too long for your personal taste, consider trimming the individual lashes down to achieve a more natural look. Lashes should be longer toward the outer corner of the eye
2 Apply the lash glue to the outer seam of the eyelash strip with an applicator or small brush. Allow the glue to dry for a moment before applying it to your lashes.
  • Alternatively, you can squeeze a thin line of lash glue onto the back of your non-dominant hand. Then, gently run the outer seam of the eyelash strip along it.
3
Place the strip on your eyelid, positioning it as close as possible to your natural lashes. Bring the strip down from above, not from the front. This is to ensure that you get as close as possible to your lashline.[1]
4
Allow the glue to dry naturally. Once the strip is in place, you do not need to press or hold it.
5
Apply mascara to your lashes. This will help blend your natural lashes with the false ones, achieving a more natural look. You can use black, brown, or dark gray mascara.
6
Apply liquid eyeliner along your upper lids. Be sure to fill in any gaps between the false lashes and your own to make them look more natural. Use black, brown, or dark gray liner.
7
Use makeup remover to remove false lashes. Dip a q-tip in eye makeup remover and gently rub it along your lash line. Allow the remover to sit for a minute, and gently pull off the strip.

Mascara application

Finding the best mascara and applying it in a right way is one of the most important steps in makeup. Of course if you are lucky and got nice lashes then you can use any mascara your lashes will rock. If you are in the "no lash" club like myself then its a real mission. Your lashes are short and have no volume or long but the same no volume effect then you have to find the right mascara that will give you that plus what is missing. What mascara to look for? First of all check the brush of the mascara and of course what the mascara does exactly like volume, length, super black, curly ...
mascara-brushes
brush types
And choose what you are looking for. Most of the times you will choose a volumising mascara. It will give that final touch to your eye makeup and will make the eyes look more dramatic. Also you can go for 3 in 1 or 5 in 1 in these mascaras you will find volume, length, super black etc. How to apply the mascara and why is it important? Being a m makeup artist i heard so many times from the clients             " Ohh i don't like mascara or I'm not using it because ...and then so many different reasons and excuses " Well my ladies  your makeup without a mascara is like a woman without a perfume.  Your eye makeup can be ultra glamorous and perfectly blended but if you don't have that Final touch what mascara gives you then your eyes will look "naked". Now this is the time to learn how to apply your mascara in a right way. 
  1. Make sure that your lashes are clean i mean no mascara left over from last night partying and glue form your fake lashes.
  2. Curl your lashes before mascara application, always before mascara not after you might break your lashes so be careful with it.

    lash curling
3. In the case that you don't like this tool there is another option for you. 4.When applying the mascara start from the roots of the lashes and go with a slow zig-zag moves till the end of the lashes. In this way you will give them a nice curled shape even without a curler.

5. Apply maximum 2 layers of mascara and make sure your lashes are not sticked to each other and you don't have clumps on your lashes because of the mascara.

mascara clumps
On the picture you can see the wrong way of the mascara application the lashes are sticked together and also you ca see the mascara clumps. Whether you are a makeup artist or you are applying mascara on yourself make sure that the lashes are brushed and not sticked together also no clumps on it.

Tip of the day: before going to sleep never forget to remove your makeup, especially eye makeup and more important the mascara. Use makeup remover wipes or oil based makeup remover liquid.   Thats all for today my ladies! Tomorrow will learn about false lashes and their application Don't miss it  

Perfect Smokey Eyes look part 2

Your smokey eye style makeup is comprised of a collection of different looks you create. Each element of makeup is characterised by its colour, finish, and performance. If your makeup is chosen correctly and your looks are skilfully combined, you are a woman with makeup sense.

The application

 
Smoky eyes application 1

Outline your eye contour with a black eye pencil, all the way around. Make the line thicker along the upper lashes.

Smoky eyes application 2

With a brush or a sponge applicator, apply your base colour eyeshadow on the mobile eyelid and above the crease, about halfway to the eyebrows, blending slightly.

Smoky eyes application 3

With a pointy sponge applicator, apply contour colour eyeshadow all the way around your eyes, blending it well with the pencil line.

Smoky eyes application 4

Half-close your eyes and apply contour colour in the crease.

Smoky eyes application 5

You will now need to define the outside corners of your eyes using a horizontal “V” shape. The position of the pointy end of the “V” will control the apparent shape of your eyes.

Smoky eyes application 6

With a medium-sized soft round brush (you can also use a flat one, holding it sideways), blend the eyeshadows on the upper eyelid. With a flat brush, blend the eyeshadows on the lower eyelid.

Repeat your contour colour application with a sponge, as many times as needed to achieve a deep shade. Blend again with brushes after every application. Apply highlight colour eyeshadow or facial powder under your eyebrows to ease the blending of the dark contour and add some volume to your eye makeup. For an irresistible deep regard, outline the inside contour of your eyes with eye pencil. Use darker-than-usual eyebrows and lots of mascara to finish the look. Your eyes should now be smokier then ever before! To keep your bright eye makeup in balance, try a stronger blush, and keep your lips pale with a light gloss application.   Don't forget the perfect smokey eyes are all about blending and practice.
