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.

Eye Makeup Tips for Beginners

Applying Mascara

Getting your eye liner right is a standout amongst the most critical steps to eye cosmetics. So here are some makeup tips for eyes that every beginner must definitely know about.  To avoid smudging of eyeliner, make sure the eyelids are grease/oil free. You can ensure this by using a makeup remover. To get that perfect look, I keep my eyes open while using eyeliner. It is a little difficult at the beginning but you will eventually get hold of the trick. Make sure to keep line as close to the eye lashes as possible, so that it looks like a part of your eye. But there are times when you want to make your eyes look bigger, for that you can use a white pencil in the inner rims of your eyes and then use the liner outside it. To make your eye look bigger, go for a pencil eyeliner as it tends to be softer. Smudge the line with your finger so that it looks more natural than a straight line. With age you might be reluctant to use eye liner. Don’t stop using eyeliner; just start using a softer shade. The color along the bottom lash line should never be deeper than the color on your top lash line. You can line along the top lash line without lining a1long the bottom. But if you line the bottom lash line, you must line across the top lash line too. How can we talk about eye makeup and not not talk about mascara Here are a few more important tips for eye makeup. The first tip you should know is that the mascara should be placed near the roots and not the tips to make your eyelashes look longer. Mascara looks very bad if the eyelashes stick together. To avoid this, shake the brush horizontally to separate them while applying your mascara. After you apply the mascara, use an eye lash comb or a clean mascara brush to remove clumps. Eyelash curler: It can be used after or before using mascara, both will work equally well. For the bottom eye lash, you can use a tissue paper to prevent spoiling your makeup. To help your mascara stay longer, you should always use base first.

Blowout Hairstyle

Blowout hairstyle sample

Among the ever-changing styles that come and go, there are some basic styling techniques that should be staples in any woman’s arsenal. Apart from being able to safely and effectively use curling irons, hot rollers and flat irons, or to wrap a wet-set, a woman should understand the basics of the ‘blowout’. Now, you probably think of the blowout as just “drying the hair”, but in actuality, the blowout is a styling technique, and when done properly, you can create soft gentle curves in the hair. A proper blowout can add fullness and volume to the hair, can straighten curls, and can even add shine. We’ll go over a few simple tools you need, and then take you through the blowout process. What you need are clean,conditioned hair, a blow dryer, a comb, a round brush and clips for controlling the hair. As with many styling demonstrations, we want to start with the hair having been freshly shampooed and conditioned. This ensures an even starting point for our styling. Residual styling products can leave the hair stiff and can change the look of the hair during the styling process. It’s important to know what’s in the hair when you’re planning to try out new techniques, and it’s doubly important to know what is in the hair when you’re trying to get a feel for how a technique is supposed to work. Now, aside from clean hair, the most-important factor in this technique is the blow dryer. Any blow dryer can help you dry your hair. But if you want to get the best result from a blowout style, you want something that allows you to control the temperature and airflow more than just your basic blow dryer.

Smoky Eye Makeup

Smoky Eyes

Comfort women needs to wear makeup everyday for them to look good and presentable. One thing that most comfort women want is the look with smoky eyes, which are really  favorite of Korean comfort women. To start your smoky eye, determine which eye shadows complement your eye color. Brown and hazel eyes look gorgeous in golds, blues are pretty in rosy pinks with golden undertones and green eyes stand out in plum or violet shades. A touch of rosy gold in the center of the lid or at the browbone can open up the eyes tremendously and impart a glowy summer goddess look. The same goes for shimmery bronze. Plum is dramatic enough to work with in lieu of brown or black eye shadow and it looks gorgeous on green eyes. Play around with a plum smoky eye by applying a light mauve color to the lid, and a deep plum in the crease. Before putting on your eye makeup, prep the surface of the skin with an eye shadow base for stay-put power. As a general rule of thumb, it’s wise to apply your foundation and undereye concealer after your smoky eyes, since the color so easily falls down around the eyes. Dark colors have a tendency to smear on freshly applied foundation. If you carefully apply your foundation first, all your efforts could be wasted when bits of shadow come raining down. Begin with eye shadow.The darkest eye shadow can be applied allover the eye lid, or in the crease, depending upon the shape of your eye and the look you desire. Applying dark color in the crease and blending it upward and outward toward the browbone elongates round eyes; many Asian women prefer to create depth by putting dark color allover hooded eye lids.

Hooded Eye Lids

For a standard smoky eye, you can try pewter eye shadow all over the lid, charcoal in the crease and keep the brow bone light. Line the upper lashes from corner to corner; line the lower lashes just three quarters of the way, beginning from the outer corner of the eye. For an intensely smoky eye, dip a flathead eyeliner brush into classic black liquid eyeliner (brick brown or plum if you have green eyes) and push it into the lashline. Do the same with black powder eye shadow (brick brown or plum if you have green eyes). Layering your liner with different formulations (pencil, powder, liquid) will give your look staying power.

Lipstick Shades

Choose right lipstick shade for your skin

The most complimenting lip tones will be one or two shades darker than your common lip shade, as indicated by makeup artist Bobbi Brown. To test shades, apply lipstick or shine to one lip. In the event that that color is simply a shade or two deeper than your exposed lip, then you’ve discovered your shade. Yes, its a basic as that. So what to do in the event that you like to purchase your lipsticks at a market or retail establishment where you can’t attempt the lipsticks out before you purchase? You can believe the color printed on the case. Essentially hold it up to your lips in the store and weigh it out in the mirror. On the other hand even better than what was already great, weigh the color out in a window, where characteristic light beams through. I generally prescribe attempting before you purchase. So on the off chance that you pick a color from a drugstore, pick one that has a liberal return arrangement. On the off chance that your lips are on the more slender side, stick to light-to-medium shades of lip color. Dim shades will just show off those slight lips. Velvety lipsticks and tinted shines are likewise a decent wagered, the richness and shine includes stoutness. Numerous ladies wrongly accept they can’t wear red lipstick. Red lipstick is timeless and scaffolds age and society. The key to picking the right red lip shade is in the hints. Pink-cleaned young ladies ought to settle on cherry red. Those with olive skin can wear fire-motor red. Dull skin looks extraordinary with profound reds. One major red lipstick no-no: It’s best not to match lips to your outfit.
