I always say makeup is a creative expression and why not change things up on a Friday night out! When you walk by a white liner at the department store, you probably think to yourself “there’s no way that’s wearable!” But think again! It’s not only wearable, it’s flattering. It brightens the eye and makes you look more awake. You don’t have to draw a cat eye like I did on Magali above, you can do a less stylized version and simply line it. Either way, you might be surprised how many compliments you’ll get. Here’s how:

STEPS:

  1. I like to leave the lid bare or lightly powdered but not shadowed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t! Start at the inner corner and line the upper lashline with the white liner across to the outer corner, then wing it out and up, just like you would with a black liner.

  4. If you want even more drama, also line the bottom lashline, then wing it out and up reflecting the same angle as the upper wing.
  5. If you want triple the drama, add a lash strip too!

Cream and powder foundation are typically the heaviest and cover the most while tinted moisturizers and BB creams offer the lightest coverage and feel. Liquid foundation falls in the middle of the spectrum. Until now! There is a new breed of liquid foundations that are so thin (you will literally die when you feel how thin they are… Ok not literally but you know what I mean!) yet they are formulated to give medium to full coverage. They feel so amazing, as if you’re not wearing anything, and there’s a different technique to apply them. Here’s all you need to know about fluid foundation:  (more…)

A LITTLE LIP TRICK

Why on Earth would I want you to draw an “X” on your upper lip? I’m sure you’re probably wondering that… so let me make my case! All of us have different-shaped lips. And some of us have deep cupid’s bows. Others have a top lip that goes straight across. A lot of us are somewhere in the middle. ALL are equally gorgeous! But if you want a help defining your cupid’s bow or cheating it a little, this is the easiest way! Here’s how:  (more…)
