We all know the look of a face is purely dependent on how the brows look. They ultimately shape your face, and sets the tone for all the rest. To me the most important part of your face is your brows, ( besides good teeth). One huge tip for keeping gorgeous brows is NEVER over pluck. I’d advise going to get them threaded, or if that’s too much, get them waxed. You NEVER want to touch the tops of the brows. The only real good purpose of a good pair of tweezers is to get the strays underneath the brow line. You shouldn’t be using them that often.
I have some great tips that I have picked up from some wonderful makeup workshops and I have utilized in my every day life. It’s so important to buy food products that are going to last and have good color. There are a multitudes of ” Browns ” out there. You could think you are getting a brown brow pencil, then once you get it home, you realize there is so much red in it. Sometimes a great thing to do is head over to a Mac store, or Sephora store and have someone try some products on you that work best with your skin tone.
– Always invest in a good pair of tweezers for those stray hairs. They pop up when you least expect it, and if your going out, you want your strays to be gone. It really opens up your eyes when you have all the strays gone.
Always invest in a good brand of brow pencil, that has a great edge to it , as well as a good color. Your brows should always be a bit darker than your hair color. One of my all time favorite brands is Anastasia Beverly Hills brows. She has amazing pallets and pencils. They are wonderful. Charlotte Tibury has great pencils as well.
Make sure to have a great brow gel to apply after the brow pencil to keep your brows shaped in place. Brow gels are a lifesaver and really adds depth to your brows.
It’s always best once the brows are done, to add just a bit of powder to the tops of them to set everything in place. Using all these tips on your brows will give you an instant eye lift without even visiting a doctor.
The holidays are right around the corner and there is no greater gift then this super cute sequin holiday palette by Tarte Cosmetics. I recently seen this in the Elle Magazine as one of the greatest gifts for Christmas. As much as I love makeup, I gave in and purchased it.
The palette comes in a gorgeous zip up case with 30 shades of eye catching eye shadows. Really, everyone , the eye shadows are stunning. It comes with its very own eye shadow brush, and the lights-camera-action mascara which is one of my favorites. Highlighter, bronzer , and blush also come in the mix. It’s the perfect carry on for those quick trips , and saves the time and energy of getting together a full makeup bag. This is also the perfect gift for a stocking , or for you makeup loving friend. I know I’ve done multiple testers on palettes, and I love them, but honestly this Tarte palette has some of the most gorgeous shades of eye shadows that aren’t too over powering. They are in my words, very simple , but elegant. You can grab one of these at your nearest Sephora, or online, at tartecosmetics, or Sephora.com. Rock those eyes out this holiday season.
If you love makeup , then you would love Charlotte Tilbury makeup of all kinds. I recently just tried her eye shadow, and wow am I loving it. Her makeup is made of such great quality, that the eye makeup stays on for hours. Her eye shadow comes in amazing colors as well.
I recently had the chance to watch one of the finest makeup artist , Hrush Acheman , in her makeup tutorial, and Charlotte Tilbury is used quite frequently by Hrush, so I had to see if the buzz on her products were as great as I’ve been told. They are really one of the best up there along with finest of Makeup forever, and Tarte, and benefit. Her name is not heard of a lot , but you better believe it will be everywhere soon.
I’m a stickler with foundations, and am very picky. The foundations are suppose to be just as amazing, and that is next on my list to try. It’s always best to apply a really great eye primer first, before applying any shadow. The shadow does a lot better on a primer, and doesn’t crease, nor disappear during the days. I have used multiple eye shadows by many different brands, and I have to say , there are good ones and bad ones. Charlotte Tilbury will be one of my favorites for a long time. If you ever have the chance to try out her products, please do so. You will not be disappointed.
Do you ever find yourself running out of your favorite eyecolor, and finding out later when you go pick up the same color, they are sold out of they have even discontinued the color? That has happened to me more times than I can count. I rarely use single color compacts for my eyes for that reason. It seems everytime I start loving a color, they end up finding a reason to no longer make it. I since have started using good brand eye palettes , because the likelihood of a popular palette going extinct is rare, with rising popularity, such as the amazing Mac warm eye pallet. Warm colors look amazing on any eye color , whether you have super dark eyes, or lighter color eyes. The great component about this palette, is that it is easy to travel with, and I can’t get enough of the colors. If I run low on the palette, I just find myself purchasing another. If you think of the price point of some single compact eye shadows being around 24.00, paying a higher price for an eye palette isn’t so bad, considering you can get up to six to eight different colors in one. Palettes are the way to go these days when getting more for your money. I know some single compact brands selling their one single color for up to 48.00. That can be quite expensive considering your only getting one color, and that only last you for so long when using it everyday. Mac cosmetics has great quality makeup, and the makeup doesn’t wear off quickly like some brands do. This is ultimately one of my favorites, and if any of you are considering purchasing a palette, check out Mac’s warm palette. The colors will not disappoint.
Hi, beautiful ladies!
We all know how hectic life can be, and maybe you’ve looked in the mirror lately and thought, “Gosh, I look tired.” Of course, we’d all like more sleep and want to look refreshed every morning, but that’s easier said than done. One of my favorite items to use to get that look is white eyeliner. It’s a great way to get that refreshed look and make the eyes look brighter. Use white eyeliner on the insides of the water lines of the eyes. It magnifies the eye, opening them up and giving them that brighter, more awake look. Try it out, and let me know how it goes!
