Applying Nail Polish

putting nail polish

Apply a coat of your favorite nail polish. Don’t worry about it going over the edge of you nails and on to your cuticles and the surrounding skin. Wait for it to dry. Make sure it is completely dry. Apply a second coat. Again don’t worry about not being neat. Apply a top coat of clear nail polish. Prepare a sink of hot soapy water. Wash your hands in the water and massage the skin around your nails.Gently rub your fingers with an old sponge or cloth. Drain the sink and rinse your hands with cold water. Any nail polish that went off your nails will have been washed away by the hot water.  If after two coats of your favorite nail polish the colour is still a bit weak, feel free to apply another coat. Before you apply nail polish to your nails, make sure you apply a base coat to prevent getting your nails stained from the nail polish. If your nail polish is too thick, you can buy nail polish thinner. However, do not add nail polish remover to your nail polish, as this will ruin the nail polish. You could also dip a Q-tip in nail polish remover and rub away specks on your skin as an alternate to the hot water. Make sure you look after your nails. If you have flaked nails, try to go neatly and slowly over the flaked parts. When applying nail polish start in the middle of your nail and the move on to the other sides. You should only need 3 strokes. Always start from the cuticle and work towards the tip. Make sure the nail polish is dry before applying a top coat.

Eyebrow Mistakes You’ve Been Doing

Cara Delevigne

Brows can make or break a face. It’s why those photos of celebs without eyebrows are so hilarious! And with eyebrow superstars rapidly emerging like Cara Delevigne, Emilia Clarke, and Rita Ora, inspiration for expertly-shaped brows is everywhere. But celebs have beauty stylists. Left to our own devices, the average person isn’t exactly a master eyebrows craftsman. Here are some of the most common mistakes people make when shaping and maintaining their brows. Find out why they’re no-nos, and see if you’ve been making these mistakes yourself! Fixing a unibrow by over-widening your eyebrow gap is a mistake. Often, when people are taking care of a unibrow or just extra shaggy ends, they end up plucking a gap between their brows that’s wider than the Grand Canyon. It looks incredibly unnatural and just plain bad. To fix it, hold a thin makeup brush or pencil and line it up vertically with the edge of your inner tear duct. That’s the farthest an eyebrow should be plucked. Matching your brow color to your hair exactly is another mistake. This is mostly a problem for people who dye their hair. You dye your hair auburn and you buy an auburn eyebrow pencil. You bleach your hair and you think that your eyebrows must now be bleached. Eyebrow and hair shades don’t have to be an exact match to look good! To fix it, whether it’s dye or a brow pencil, picking a shade of brown with a slight tint that goes with your hair color is usually your best bet. For blondes, you can opt to go several shades darker than your hair; in fact, that’s how most natural light blondes look.

The Right Concealer For You

Top 3 Korean Concealer for Blemishes

Korea is very known for its beauty products and that’s the reason why Korean comfort women always use many beauty products such as concealer. A concealer that hides those bothersome dark circles, dark spots, and freckles on your face and makes a tired face instantly look brighter is an indispensable item for creating a perfect complexion. Depending on what you want to cover, there are a wealth of shades and varieties, such as stick, powder, liquid, and cream types. All you’ll need are some simple techniques to get a beautiful finish. Here, we’ll introduce the right way to choose and use a concealer in order to create a youthful, beautiful complexion.  Choose the type of concealer according to the area and the purpose for which you’ll be using it. When you want light coverage over a wide area of the face and for areas that move a lot, liquid is good because it creates a light finish. Remember that too much heavy concealer tends to accentuate wrinkles over time.  When you want good coverage on small or narrow areas choose stick or compact. When using a stick type concealer, choose a solid one. In general, for highlighting or adding clarity, choose a lighter tone. For use on dark spots or pimples, choose a neutral shade that’s close to your skin tone.When using concealer  over foundation, the ideal shade of concealer varies depending on the order in which foundation and concealer are applied. When using it over liquid or cream foundation, first try covering the area of concern with foundation. If it still bothers you, choose a concealer that’s close to your skin pigments.

Makeup Techniques Help You Look Slim

Different brow shapes

Choose the right brow shape. Your brows can actually play a big part in how slim or heavy your face looks. Your eyebrows should be substantial, but not thick, and have a defined arch in the middle. Arched brows help lift the face and make your face look slimmer. Color in your brows with a shade of makeup slightly darker than your natural brow to help them stand out. Cover eye circles. Eye circles can have a weighty effect on how you look. Cover under eye circles with concealer to hide them and blend your eyelids into the rest of your face. You can also add a white eye shadow or highlighter to the outside and inside corners of your eyes to help them stand out. When your eyes stand out in a good way, rather than stand out because of dark circles, your face automatically looks slimmer. Experiment with blush placement. Most people should use a blush with a slight brown undertone for best results. Blushes with red undertones can actually make the face look heavier than it is. Apply your blush just under the cheekbone and sweep it from bone to the middle of each ear. Apply lightly, to avoid looking like a clown. Play up eyes. The more you play up your eyes, the slimmer your face will look. It is true, that when the eye is distracted by beautiful eyes, it does not pay attention to body issues. Use eyeliner and mascara that make your eyes appear larger, and use eye shadow that works well with your skin tone and eye color. Blue eyes look great with gold or pink shadows. Green eyes stand out with copper or plum shades. Brown eyes pop with blue, teal, and purple.

Learn How to Use a Lip Liner

Lip liner

Let us talk about lip liner. I saw a lady on the subway yesterday who wore tan lip liner and nude lipstick. It’s that 90s period botch that gives lip liner the unfavorable criticism it has now. Anyhow utilized accurately, it can be a multipurpose item that merits a spot in your magnificence schedule. Here are a few of my favorite lip liner tips. One of my biggest pet peeves is lipstick that doesn’t last the day. Lip primers are a lifesaver, but why buy another product when a lip liner will do the same thing? Fill in the entire lip with liner not just the edges before applying lipstick for a look that lasts. Liner sticks better on clean surfaces, so make sure you’re not wearing lip balm before you apply. So you don’t accidentally repeat the 90s fad, make sure your liner is the same color as or lighter than your lipstick. Like foundation, lip liner is a hidden step. No one should know you’re wearing it. One exception to the lighter liner rule is if you want to update an out-of-season color. Fill in your lips with red pencil, then layer your favorite summer pink lipstick over it to subtly adjust the shade. I do this all the time with my favorite bright fuchsia shade. But make sure to soften the edges with a Q-tip. To avoid a harsh line around the lip, dab a Q-tip around the edges to soften the look. Remember, subtlety is key.

The RCMA foundation

RCMA Foundation

The Research Council of Makeup Artists was established in 1962 by famous cosmetics craftsman and regarded creator Vincent J-R Kehoe. A furious supporter of instruction in the business, Kehoe made RCMA to further the innovative work of restorative items that would meet the particular needs of expert cosmetics craftsmen working in the film, TV, and stage businesses. Mr. Kehoe himself designed a foundation formula he called “Color Process” foundation, which has come to be known in the makeup world as simply “RCMA.” Since its introduction more than 50 years ago, RCMA is still considered by many professionals to be the number one foundation choice. But what makes RCMA so popular with the pros? It’s all about integrity. RCMA foundations are made only with vegetable oils, pure waxes, and FDA-approved colors. And, they don’t include any perfume, lanolin, petrolatum, or mineral oil, which means people of all skin types can wear RCMA without much worry of allergic reactions or clogged pores. Even after Mr. Kehoe’s passing in 2008, his grandsons honor the careful production of the foundations by manufacturing small batches under strict conditions to maintain consistency and color standards. Every batch of the formula is given a stringent color test to ensure artists have the exact color they need, every time. Most pro foundations are made with a ratio of 30–40% pigment to 60–70% filler (ingredients like waxes and oils). In mass products, the ratio of pigment-to-filler can be even lower. RCMA foundations are made with a ratio of at least 50% pigment to 50% filler—so a little foundation goes a very long way, and leaves the complexion looking natural and not like it’s covered in makeup. It layers beautifully with cheek colors, highlighters, and contour shades.

Kim Jong-Un Haircut for Male College Students

Kim Jong-un

Male college understudies in North Korea are currently needed to get the same hair styling as their pioneer Kim Jong-un, it is accounted for. The state-endorsed rule was presented in the capital Pyongyang around two weeks back, Radio Free Asia reports. It is presently being taken off the nation over – albeit some individuals have communicated reservations about getting the look. “Our pioneer’s improved hairdo is extremely specific, maybe,” one source tells Radio Free Asia. “It doesn’t always go with everyone since everyone has different face and head shapes.” Meanwhile, a North Korean now living in China says the look is actually unpopular at home because people think it resembles Chinese smugglers. “Until the mid-2000s, we called it the ‘Chinese smuggler haircut’,” the Korea Times reports. It seems that haircuts have been state-approved in North Korea for some time – until now people were reportedly only allowed to choose from 18 styles for women and 10 for men. Earlier, North Korea’s state TV launched a campaign against long hair, called “Let us trim our hair in accordance with the Socialist lifestyle”. However, there are conflicting reports over the haircut mandate, with the NK News website reporting that recent visitors to Pyongyang did not notice a change in hair styles. Late leader Kim Jong-il, who ruled North Korea for 17 years, sported a bouffant hairstyle, reportedly in order to look taller. An earlier version of this story said, according to reports, the haircut guideline applied to men rather than university students.

How to Apply Gel Nail Polish

Gel nail polishes

 

Gel nails provide the same strength and natural look as acrylic nails, but without the odor, nail damage and lifting commonly associated with acrylic overlays. You can get a full set of gel nails applied at a local beauty parlor or nail salon, but if you have the time and access to supplies, you can apply them yourself at home. To learn how to apply gel nails, use the following tips. Apply the primer. This removes the remaining moisture and oils from your nails to get them ready for the gels. The primer comes with a brush, which you use to put a thin coat of primer on each nail from the cuticle to the top of the nail. Use long, even strokes and cover the entire nail. Primer should be applied in a thin layer. Let the primer dry completely before proceeding. Brush an even coat of UV nail gel onto each nail. Use the brush that comes with the UV nail gel. Use long strokes, covering the whole nail surface. If you get any gel onto your finger or cuticle bed, remove it with the cuticle pusher. When you have coated all of your nails, put your hands under the UV drying light. Normal drying time is between 1 to 3 minutes. Repeat with a second coat of UV nail gel. Brush on a second coat of the UV nail gel and place your hands back under the UV drying light until your nails are dry. The second coat may take longer to dry than the first, about 2 to 4 minutes. Apply a third coat of UV nail gel. When you apply the third coat, make sure you cover any thin spots and even out the gel before drying. Not applying the gel evenly can cause nails to appear uneven. Put your hands under the UV dryer and let them dry for up to 5 minutes. The more gel on the nail, the longer the drying time will be.

Round Face Makeup Tips

Round face

Brows are an essential frame for the round face, so be sure to groom them into a subtle arch for a finishing touch. A slightly rounder brow shape brings a more cheerful look to the face, though be sure not to overdo it, for risk of entering into permanently surprised territory. Focus the arch closer to the outer end of the pupil for a dummy-proof way to add just the right amount of height, says celebrity makeup artist and YouBeauty Makeup Advisor, Fiona Stiles. For eyes, try a sweep of sheer color from lid to brow bone, finishing with a pump or two of an eyelash curler and a couple of coats of lengthening mascara to open up the eyes. Squiggle the brush in an “S” motion while working through lashes, to achieve the longest length possible. You can optionally add a smudge of eyeliner at the lash line for a touch of sexy smoke, or glide gel eyeliner into a fine line so as to define and enhance, not overwhelm, your curvier shape, says celebrity makeup artist Molly Stern. The angelic look of round faces allows blush to truly take center stage, though applying it in a certain way will ensure that you don’t inadvertently crowd your features together with too much makeup. Instead of blushing the apples of your cheeks, look in a mirror to see where your pupils are, and start your blush at this point for a balance of color that better highlights the proportions of your face, advises Stiles. Finally, opt for a creamy lipstick or soft sheen lip gloss to add a stroke of neutral illumination to your look. Lighter complexions may enjoy light pinks and chiffon peaches, while deeper complexions may find luscious nudes and sheer plums more flattering.
