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.
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!

- 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
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.
Thats all for today my ladies!

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 …
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.
- Make sure that your lashes are clean i mean no mascara left over from last night partying and glue form your fake lashes.
- Curl your lashes before mascara application, always before mascara not after you might break your lashes so be careful with it.
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.
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.
Look at the picture and how the eye looks. Its more open, shiny and dramatic all this because of our lovely mascara.
So please get in the stores test the mascaras and get your favourite one to rock the world with your sensual looks.
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

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.
Outline your eye contour with a black eye pencil, all the way around. Make the line thicker along the upper lashes.
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.
With a pointy sponge applicator, apply contour colour eyeshadow all the way around your eyes, blending it well with the pencil line.
Half-close your eyes and apply contour colour in the crease.
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.
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.
See you all tomorrow as we discuss about Lipsticks and will give you amazing tips how to get perfect lips by applying the lipstick in a correct way
Smokey eyes have become a classic party eye makeup look. The secret of this trend’s popularity is that smoky eyes can change your face dramatically, transforming the girl-next-door into a stylish diva.
Once you learn and master these application and blending techniques, the transition will take you only a few minutes. You can then have irresistible-looking eyes, even if they are not big or bright.
In this article you will learn:
- how to choose the texture of your eye makeup.
- which are the most flattering shades.
- easy and mess-free application techniques.
You will need one black eye pencil, at least two colours of powder eyeshadow, and dark mascara to produce a fantastic smoky eyes effect. Once you have mastered how to do this your confidence will go through the roof and when your friends see what you have done on your eyes they will ask you every time you are going out with them if you will do their eyes too. I promise, just see!!
You will know what I am talking about!
The base colour should be a rich shimmery (not metallic) powder texture. Choose a shade slightly darker than your skin tone. You may choose neutral beige or grey colours for a soft and sophisticated look; or use a bright base for a dramatic look.
The contour colour must be a dark, matte, or slightly shimmery colour. Choose between dark brown, blue, green, or purple, depending on the colour of your attire. Use black with any outfit for a stunning effect.
You may add a third shade to your smoky eyes: a slightly shimmery highlight colour applied just under the eyebrows. This will enlarge the eye area and also soften any demarcation lines that remain after blending. Your normal facial powder can produce the same result if you are aiming for a more sophisticated look.
Choose soft black eye pencil or kohl for an enhancing all-around contour. Never use liquid eyeliner; it is for crisp lines, not the soft and sultry look we are aiming for here.
Black thickening mascara and stronger-than-usual eyebrows are in tune with smoky eyes makes.
Stay tuned tomorrow as we discuss on the right application for smokey eyes.
All about eyeliner! What’s that you say? You already know all there is to know? We thought so too. That is until we learned these 8 unique tips, tricks, and facts.
We will guide you as to what is the best eyeliner to use and for what occasion.
Get it right and you will look amazing but get it wrong and an in perfect line or application then it will spoil the whole look!
1. White eyeliner can make your eyes look more awake. Swap your regular black pencil for white when you’re looking a tad on the tired side and say good morning to brighter eyes.
2. Dark eyeliner was actually created, in part, to protect people from the harsh rays of the sun. So, if anything, you have an excuse for owning ten identical similar shades of black eyeliner. But don’t forget: there’s no substitute for SPF!
3. Winged eyeliner can be worn on both top and bottom lash lines—at the same time! Choose two contrasting colors for an edgy makeover and read this tutorial for instructions.
4. Ever mess up on your liner look (hello, eyes that are suddenly two different sizes)? No worries, simply apply makeup remover to a Q-tip to erase the error without smudging or starting over.
5. Connect the dots instead of sweeping liner on for more precise results. Just dot with cream liner and connect with a smudge brush for perfect liner, every time.
6. You can use more than one eyeliner color at once—trust us. In our Rock Doll makeup tutorial, Emma Willis shows us how to rock three liners at once for a dramatic evening look. Try it out and report back!
7. Purchase a less-than-effective eye pencil? Instead of returning it, take a cue from ladies of the 80s: swipe it over an open flame to heat it up and it will glide right on. Quick tip: this trick works well for dramatic liner looks, too.
8. Getting a winged eyeliner look is way easier than you think. Choose which two-step process is right for you and voila—pro eyes in seconds!
9. Waterproof Mascaras.
Waterproof liquid liner enables you to create a variety of eye-opening effects—from thin, precise lines to thick, dramatic looks. The formula glides on with ease, dries quickly and won’t smudge or run day-into-night.
The fine marker-like tip offers precise application for everyone from novices to pros and results in beautifully defined eyes that will leave a lasting impression.
- Waterproof and easy-to-use
- Goes on smoothly without skipping, smudging, or pulling
- Lasts all day long!
