Highlighting your eyes

By highlighting certain areas, you can easily create the illusion of a brighter eye. Using lighter shades in areas to help them stand out, and deeper shades to add depth, pushing them back. My favorite sweet spots to highlight are the inner corner, the center of eyelid, and along the brow bone.

Contouring

Contouring is huge!  I just got in great new contours and brushes, and would be happy to show you how to sculpt your beautiful features.

Makeup Trial tip

Wear a white tshirt when you have your trial makeup so that you can see how the makeup looks against a pale color, and take a picture of yourself in daylight.

Dark circle help

Use green tea bags- Green tea is rich in antioxidants and can make up for antioxidant deficiencies in the body that contribute to dark circles. Pour hot water over two tea bags and let them steep for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags and place them in the freezer. Remove when the tea bags are very cold. Lie down and press the tea bags onto your eyes. Hold them there for about 15 minutes. Rinse your eyes with cold water and pat dry.

Wash before you snooze

While forgetting to wash your face for one night is unlikely to cause lasting damage to your skin, one night is all it takes to clog pores and cause a breakout. Makeup left on skin overnight can prevent the skin from “breathing,” and can also inhibit the skin’s process of repair and regeneration while you sleep.  So before you start your Netflix, make it a habit to wash your face, and you will be glad you did.  Now enjoy your show!

Green Tea

It is a powerful anti-aging skincare ingredient that can help firm or depuff the skin, along with being a great antioxidant.  It also helps make fine lines and wrinkles look smaller, so drink a cup a day and feel/see the difference.

Spring makeup 2013

Spring makeup should be as light and refreshing as the season in which you wear it. Spring is a time for renewal and new beginnings. Many women look forward to it as a chance to update their wardrobes and hairstyles. Makeup should not be any different. Focus on soft colors and a light hand and your look will fall right in line with the new season.
