Remove your makeup in natural way

Most makeup removers are filled with chemicals so I gather ways to remove makeup easily, effectively and naturally.The first way is to use honey as a makeup removal, together with it is baking soda. You may not thing that this method works, but it really works great on any type of makeup. Just put a little honey on a clean washcloth and add some baking soda. Next way to remove your makeup easily is by using baby wipes. It is so gentle that you do not have to worry about breaking out or irritating your skin. This is definitely a great way to remove your makeup if you want a quick and less messy way to do it. Another way is to fill up a basin of hot water and lean over it. It opens up all your pores, making it easier to remove your makeup with just soap and water.

Bridal Makeup Tips From The Experts

We research about what some makeup artists said to do for bridal makeup. Caroline Barnes, a celebrity makeup maestro, said to wear a white t-shirt if you are having you makeup test in a store so that you can see how the makeup looks against a pale color and take a picture of yourself in a day light to see how it looks before you purchase anything. Bobbi Brown said to emphasize your eyes by brightening any darkness under them with corrector and concealer. She’s also the one who said to remember that bridal make-up needs to have enough colour to compensate for the whiteness of the dress. There’s a big difference between everyday clothes and a wedding dress, so there should be difference in your make-up, too. Start by making sure your skin looks even and smooth, and then add colour to your cheeks and lips to give them a glow. According to Rebecca you should use individual eyelashes because they’re a brilliant way to make your eyes stand out and look far more subtle than a full strip. Go for differing lengths to create a really natural fluttery look and nestle them in between your natural lashes rather than fixing them on top. Caroline Barnes also said to focus on the most important elements of your look, such as beautifully natural-looking skin, softly groomed brows and feathery lashes. If you get these basic factors right the rest of your make-up will fall into place.

Get an Asian Look

Lot of people wants the beauty of Asian women. Let me teach you on how to make yourself look Asian using makeup only. Find a tinted moisturizer for your face and apply to cheeks, chin, and the space between your nose and lips, but not on your nose. Apply concealer that is one shade lighter than your skin underneath your eyes and on your eyelid and let the concealer sit for at least one minute then rub it in completely. After that, apply liquid eyeliner in a thin line on your top eyelid. Wing the liquid eyeliner on the outer edge of your eye in a way that fits your eye shape, but make sure to not make it wing too dramatic. If your skin tone is light brown, apply pale peach eyeshadow and if you skin is fair, apply white eyeshadow to the crease of your eyelid. To lessen the intensity of the double eyelid, apply eyeshadow just above the crease as well. After applying eyeshadow, apply a light layer of mascara to the upper lid’s eyelashes and second coat of mascara to only outer lashes on the upper lid. Rub an eyeshadow brush in a medium brown eyeshadow if your skin tone is light brown or tan eyeshadow if your skin tone is fair. Whatever your skin tone is, make sure that the eyeshadow you will use is one shade darker than your skin tone. For your lips, use only chapstick and remember that the difference between out mouth and the shape of Asian women mouths can be emphasized by a lip stain, lipstick or gloss.

All About Lipsticks

Make sure to choose the right shade for you

A lot of working women, even students, use lipsticks everyday. Let me give you some advice in using it. If  you want to wear red lipstick, make sure to keep the rest of your makeup light. Women who wear heavy eye makeup and lipstick can look clownish so if you want to have heavy eye makeup, keep your mouth light with gloss or light lip color that doesn’t stand out. Nude lips look great with smokey eyes and for you to get that you need to cover your lips with concealer or foundation before you apply gloss. Make sure to choose the right shade of it or gloss before buy lipstick. Bobbi Brown swears that the best lipstick shade is a shade or two darker than your natural lip color. Orange, brown and corals shades tend to make teeth appear yellow. Shades that work to downplay a yellow cast to teeth are lipsticks with bluish undertone.  Lipstick usually last longer if you fill in your lips with the liner first and never use a dark liner with light lipstick. If you’re using a light lipstick, it is great to use a nude liner. A lot of women mark their glasses with their lipstick, for you not to experience that, discreetly lick your lips before taking a sip from a glass. Lipstick can act as a blush, dab a few dots on the apples of your cheeks and blend it but remember to moisturized skin first so the lipstick will blends well.

Make Your Eyes Look Bigger

eyes look bigger on the bottom picture

Curling your eyelashes before applying mascara will open up your eyes. You may actually curl lashes after you applied  mascara as long it is dried. Putting mascara on the lower lashes closes up the eyes for some women, but for others, mascara and eyeliner on the lower lashes can make a dramatic difference so try it out for yourself and see if you like it. To apply mascara on lower lashes, hold the brush vertically and then sweep it back and forth. If you want to wear eyeliner on the lower lashes, try a pencil eyeliner. Make sure to smudge the line with your finger so it will look more natural than a straight line. Put a bit of light eyeshadow right at the inside ridge of your eye, where the upper lid meets the bottom lid, near the tear duct. This will brightens your eyes and makes them look whiter. For a doe-eyed, seductive look, makeup artist Paul Starr suggests to try lining your lower lids with creamy beige eye pencil. Keeping your brows manicured can also make your eyes look bigger. If you manicure your brows, you’d be amazed at how it can transform your face. A lot of women are thinking that their brows are fine even though they never get them tweezed or waxed and of them afraid of over-tweezing or they are unsure of what shape is right for their eyes. What they do not know is how much better they could look once they get their brows done so better go to a professional for waxing, tweezing or threading of your brows.

How to Apply Eye Makeup

http://eyemakeuptips.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/Smokey-Eye-Makeup.jpg

Eye Makeup

First thing that you need to do is to prep your eyes with concealer, which can be used to cover up under-eye circles or bluish discoloration under your inner eye. Apply three dots of concealer under each eye to cover dark under-eye circles. You should start at the inner corner then under the pupil and on the outer edge. Never rub, just pat it with your ring finger until concealer traces disappear. After applying concealer, apply eyeshadow primer to your lid. This primer will keel your shadow in place for hours. After you put eyeshadow primer, apply eyeliner, either liquid liners or an eye pencil. Line eyes as close to the upper lashes as possible from the inner to the outer corner, then follow with liner on bottom eyes but only line from the middle of the eye out. With a Q-tip or your finger, smudge the bottom line. If you want a smokey eye, you may use a brush to pat in a dark eyeshadow along the upper lid and below the lid. After putting eyeliner, you may now apply eyeshadow. It is better to use a three0toned shadow and build from lids to brow. Choose and start with a light color that almost matches your lid and sweep the color across the lid and up to your browbone. Follow medium color across your lid then build with a darker color in the crease. Make sure you blend the colors well. After putting eyeshadow, brighten your eyes and brow with a highlighter. Make sure to curl lashes for a better look. and finally, apply mascara.

Apply Foundation Right

Applied foundation right

Foundation is a skin colored cosmetic applied to the face to create an uniform color to the complexion. It is also use to cover flaws and, sometimes, to change the natural skin tone. It even out your skin tone and give you the flawless skin appearance. But putting foundation is a risky task, you have to do it right otherwise you will look like a clown. Let me help you on how to apply foundation right. The first thing you need to do is to clean your hands and face, then apply moisturizer, sunscreen or primer that is perfect for your skin type. Wait for about one minute then use a concealer to camouflage your dark, under-eye circles. Never rub the concealer into skin, pat it. You may use brushes, sponge, fingers or whatever you want to use as a tool to apply foundation but apply it by dots on your cheeks, chin, forehead and tip of the nose. There’s no need to apply foundation over your entire face. Most of the time, you just need to put it on the spots that are uneven, like around eyes, nose and chin. Using the tool that you choose, check if there’s no obvious line. After applying foundation, immediately set it with loose powder. If you are not happy on the result and think that you have overdone it, you don’t have to start over. A Lancome makeup artist, Ross Burton, suggests putting a dime-sized amount of moisturizer on a foundation brush and working the brush over your face. If you don’t have a foundation brush, your fingers should do.

Don’ts: Bridal Make-Up Tips

http://www.elliemakeup.com.au/ckfinder/userfiles/images/ellieBride.jpg

Bridal Makeup Sample

Do not have your make-up test done with overhead fluorescent lighting. Caroline Barnes said that if you have a professional make-up artist coming to your home, arrange a time when it is still daylight outside. Do not scared of going a bit brighter. Choose a lipstick that is one or two shades brighter than what you would normally wear because neutral, brown and pale lip colors can look washed out in photographs. You can still wear neutral hue but it should be worn as a base with a pink or rose color on top. Do not just apply make-up to your face, apply over your shoulder and neck if necessary to ensure your face is not a different color even texture to your body. To create the most natural look possible, everything should look uniform. To blend uneven skin tones easier, use a light fake tan but do this the day before your wedding not the night. Caroline said that beware of darkening your skin tone too much, it actually deaden the look of your complexion. Do not go too dark on the eyes. Bobbi said you should define your eyes by applying colors in the crease, but avoid using a shade that is too dense, as it can detract from the eyes themselves. Alex said that do not go too glossy or too matte. It’s best to avoid lipsticks at either end of the texture scale; too glossy and they’ll only last five minutes whilst too matte and they may leave your lips dry and cakey by the time it’s the moment to kiss your groom. The most important thing is do not rush. Allow at least 45 minutes to an hour for make-up application on the wedding day.

Foundation


There is an art to applying foundation all over the face. Surprise! It has nothing to do with using the sponge as if you are trying to cover your face with face paint. In fact, we dont recommend the use of sponge at all! In applying foundation, it is advised that one makes use of a brush. This will ensure the even spreading out of powder dust. This will prevent nasty blotches from forming on your skin. It will also prevent uneven distribution of powder pigments from developing. Just a tip, before you apply the foundation, make sure you clear your skin from impurities with a toner. Apply a thin coat of sunblock as well as this could serve as base already. The base will allow the foundation to stay longer and more natural than it would without one. It will also prevent the dusts of the powder from entering the pores.

Using Primers for Flawless Looking Skin

laura mercier oil free primerRegular visits to the dermatologist for skin care is not realistic for everybody with tight schedules and even tighter budgets, which is why we resort to makeup to hide imperfections instead.

When trying to hide imperfections, women usually use foundation and concealers. And while the combination of the results in a pretty good looking skin, the use of primers before applying foundation will give you even more flawless looking skin.

The great thing about primers is that it does more than provide better coverage for your skin, thus hiding imperfections such as blotching and acne scars even better. What primers do is actually act as a base that ensures longer lasting foundation and makeup. This means less retouches throughout the day. On top of this, the best makeup primers will protect your skin, keeping it smooth and moisturized even with regular use of makeup. Of course, even if you use an excellent primer, we still recommend that you use makeup removers at the end of the day to keep your face clean.
