Tips And Tricks To Using Eyeshadow

Whoever said that ‘eyes are the windows to a person’s soul’, I completely agree with him because none other facial feature expresses as much as the eyes.

Beautiful eyes can arrest the attention of the onlooker, and so it makes perfect sense to play up the beauty of your eyes with some makeup. In terms of eye make up, the most important role is played by the eyeshadow and if you want your eyes to work the magic you will surely benefit from the tips and tricks that we have enlisted here.

1. Blending is the secret: you’ll mostly need about two or three different shades of eyeshadow to create a dramatic effect, but unless you make all these shades blend smoothly and harmoniously into the each other you may not be able to achieve the desired effect.

2. Choosing the shades: there are just two ways to decide on what eyeshadow color will suit you best, and these are either you have to match the eye shadow’s shade with the natural color of your eyes or go in for some contrasting shade. You may have to experiment, a little, to find out what shades highlight the natural beauty of your eyes in the best possible way.

3. Don’t over extend the territory: some women extend their eyeshadow right on to the brow bone, but that’s not how you’re suppose to use eyeshadow, you need to end your eyeshadow a little before you reach the brow bone.

4. Highlighting the crease: it’s important to blend the highlighter around the outer edge of the crease, to make your eyes appear larger and more beautiful.

5. Primer is a must: before you proceed with applying the eyeshadow, it’s always better to use a primer because a primer makes your eyelids look smoother while at the same time it will make your eye makeup to last longer.

6. Be careful with the shimmer: use shimmer in moderation, because any excess of it may make the fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes become more prominent.

Which Blush Type Should You Choose?

When you go buying blusher for your face, it is important to consider what type of blusher you should buy. There is a wide array of textures and finishes in which it is available, and if you choose the wrong type of blusher using it may become a bit messy and a bit tricky.

While your skin type does count in making a choice, about the blusher type that will suit you best, you also need to look at how easy it is to apply the particular type and whether it is easier to blend, to get to the right effect.

There are four different types of blushers, and we have detailed them out here so that it becomes easier for you to pick and choose the perfect type.

Powder Blush

This is the most commonly available type, and nearly every well known makeup brand manufactures this type. This is long lasting and fairly easy to apply, and that’s what makes it the most popular. The best way to apply powder blush is using a makeup brush, as with the makeup brush it becomes easy to spread it evenly on your cheeks and to blend it well with your natural skin.

Gel Blush

This one isn’t as easy to apply, as the one we just talked about, but it is still popular because of the lovely translucent shine that it gives to your cheeks. This is best for you when your skin is somewhere between normal to oily. For this you don’t really need a makeup brush, as it can be easily applied using just your fingertips. It dries up quickly and is much more long lasting than the powder version.

Cream Blush

This is a little thicker than all the other blusher types, and as the name is indicative it comes with a cream base. And obviously, with its cream base, it is ideal for dry skin as it contains a lot of moisturizing ingredients. The creamy texture allows your skin to absorb the blush easily, while at the same time it makes it easier to spread it and to blend it.

Tint Blush

These aren’t very popular, but they’re definitely the best choice when you want to proceed with applying blush without using the foundation as a base. Even in terms of touch-up it’s much more convenient, than all the other types, however you don’t really need to touch it up so often because one application can easily last you all through the day. But you need to be very careful while applying it, because it dries up very fast, and thus blending it can turn out to be a bit tricky.

How To Plump Up Your Lips

You cannot hold back age but you can certainly do something to keep your skin and hair in good shape which makes you look younger than you are.

As we grow up we tend to lose the plumpness of the lips so that by the time we are in our fifties our lips start thinning out.

This can be prevented by the use of a proper lip balm when we go out in the sun. Sun rays affect the skin on our lips to a large extent. It is always nice to use some natural ingredients on the beautiful lips. You could use some butter fresh from warmed up milk and some sugar on the lips.

Sugar exfoliates the skin on the lips by taking the dry skin away. You can also use some lemon as a scrub on the lips. Next use some natural moisturizer.

This is a good way you can do up your lips to make them look plump and full. Use some eye shadow powder that is pink, light brown or natural. You can use some lip liner to paint the outline.

Follow the curve of the lips and then apply some eye shadow with a lipstick brush. You can then use some gloss to cover the lips. The lips would look plump and full undoubtedly.

Many of us aspire to have lips like Angelina Jolie’s but after a lip job many of us end up have lips like MJ’s. Lip jobs just don’t work for many. Either the lips get too full or too stretched.

It is best that we try top achieve the pout naturally. Full lips make your face appear sexier and vibrant. You need not paint your lips too red if you have full lips. You could paint them a pink shade or a brown to give them the soft and subdued natural look.

You can always go in for a permanent option of plumping your lips but natural options and achieving the plumpness through make up is also possible.

Flaunt your lips and full lips look best when they frame a smile within. Here is a tip. Look at the mirror and try to smile the best way so that your lips look healthy and attractive. Flash that smile and be confident.

What is the shape of your face?

In order to determine the shape of your face, you will need to measure it.  Measure your face from top to bottom and from side to side.  If your face is oval shaped, then the length will equal to one and a half times the width.  When the length of your face equals the width, then you have a round face.  Triangular shaped faces have wide chins and narrow foreheads.  Lastly, square shaped faces have a jawline, cheekbone and forehead almost equal in width.

Heart-shaped face

In order to express your features, you must try to diminish the width of your forehead and make your jaw wider.  If you want bangs, wear them full and curly.  Wear your hair fuller at the top than near your jawline.  Your hair should be either short or of medium length and point your hair towards your face, since this will help to widen your chin.  If you love short cut bobs up to your chin, then you should definitely get one, since your heart-shaped face will make you look like you just walked out of a magazine.

Oval faces

Since, you are blessed with an oval face, mostly any hairstyle will look good on you.  You can wear your hair short, medium or long.  A wonderful hairstyle would be one in which you do a side or a center parting and let your hair rest on your shoulders.  In addition, you may also wear your hair slicked back or pulled back.  However, it is advisable to have your hair away from your face and not to have too full bangs.  Your face shape is adaptable to almost any hairstyle and that is why you should experiment and see which one you like the best.

Round faces

If you have found out that you have a round face, remember either to have short hair or chin length hair.  You should consider layering your hair right from the top and keep your hair close to your face.  Do not cut your hair very, very short and have a haircut that is rounded and ends at your chin.  This will exaggerate your face shape even more.  Straight bangs are not recommended, but if you love bangs, you should curl them and wear them to the side.  These types of hairstyles will make your face look longer, which is what you want to strive for.  Do not keep a lot of hair near the sides of your face and near your ears.  However, wispy curls curled towards your face is recommendable.  The point of all these hairstyles is to make your face look longer and less rounder and to accentuate your beautiful features.

Square Face

A square face has a very sharp angled jawline and has square shaped eyebrows.  In order to lessen these features, you should strive for hairstyles that emphasize the cheekbones.  Hairstyles worn in curls and waves will give shape to your square face.  The length of hair that is perfect for you is about 1-1/2 below the chin or to have shoulder length hair.  Your hair at these lengths will help to alleviate the squareness of your jaw line.  It is advisable not to let your hair hang and better to wear a side part than a center part.  Any freeflowing hairstyle for this shape will look wonderful.

Triangular shaped face
Since you have a triangular shaped face, you want to narrow the chin and widen the forehead.  Keep your hair away from your face and ear to widen your forehead.  In addition, you should angle your hair towards the chin.  You should keep your hair length at least up to your chin and cut your hair in lots of layers.  Also if you let your hair loose tuck it behind your ears so that it will help to highlight your eyes and increase the width around this area.  In addition, instead of parting your hair in the center, try parting it off-center and see the model look you have always loved!
