CONCEALERS


Concealer is an invaluable cosmetic product for anyone who has under-eye circles or suffers facial blemishes. It covers these imperfections, giving your skin a smooth and even look. Concealer can be purchased in liquid, cream or stick form.
A concealer stick is arguably the most versatile, working well to conceal all types of imperfection without rubbing off easily as liquid concealers can. Application of stick concealer will add only seconds to your daily makeup routine. With the right concealer stick, you can easily cover all blemishes and dark spots under your eyes. Choose a concealer that is one shade lighter than your natural skin tone. This is because blemishes are usually darker than the rest of your skin, the lightness of the concealer applied to the darkness of the blemish will even out to match the rest of your complexion.

How to apply concealers:
Concealer can be worn on its own or over your foundation. Applying base reduces the amount of concealer you need, but you can skip foundation if you prefer (go with what works best for you) Gently dab concealer under the eyes with your ring finger, which exerts the least pressure of all your fingers. Make sure you get some product as well on the inner corners of your eyes by the bridge of your nose, where shadows are cast. Blend the concealer into skin by lightly patting, not rubbing, to eliminate demarcation lines. For blemishes, invest in a stiff concealer brush that helps with greater precision during makeup application. Stipple the concealer onto the blemish. Do not use rubbing motions, as these can erase the product that has already been laid down. Still using the brush, stipple foundation around the blemish to smooth away any hard edges. Using a makeup sponge, lightly press translucent powder on the concealer to keep it from budging.  

Other uses of concealer:
Concealer can be smoothed on top of the yelids after foundation as an eye makeup primer. This creates a base for eyeshadow so that colors appear more pigmented and last longer.
If you have a preference for wearing dark shades on your lips, concealer can be used on lips as well to prevent lipsticks from bleeding and feathering. Extend your application slightly beyond your lip line, and blend harsh edges away prior to picking up your lip liner and lipstick. Along the same lines, you can also use concealer to simply take away the pigmentation of naturally dark lips. This gives you a blank canvas so that any lip products you wear appear undiluted.

Lip Liners in the correct shade.


Lip liner is a tricky tool, and may even seem outdated, but when used correctly, it can be a great asset to your makeup purse. It can plump up thin lips, add shape and make your lipstick last longer! The trick is, always apply your lip liner before applying your lipstick and never use a lip liner that is darker than your lipstick, try to match it with the lipstick color.

Keeping your Makeup Brushes Clean:

Dirty Makeup Brushes are exactly that.....dirty. They transfer old makeup, germs, and bacteria each time you use them. Give them a weekly bath and they will be good as new. Tips: • Wash your brushes, at most weekly or biweekly. • When air drying the brushes, let them lay at a slight downward angle so the water will not pool where the bristles are gathered. • Using conditioner on brushes with real hair will make them soft and keep the quality of the hair, but make sure to rinse thoroughly to avoid sticky brushes. • Wash the brushes in warm, not hot water. Hot water can loosen or dissolve the glue holding the bristles together, making them fall out. Warnings: • Be gentle while washing your brushes to avoid the bristles changing shape or some falling out. • If you are washing a kabuki brush, do not soak the handle, as it may loosen the glue that holds the hairs in place. Things you'll need: * Warm Water * Small Towel * A jar to let the brushes dry in * Brush Shampoo. For more info on how to get a brush shampoo or cleaner, you can reach us on: 08170822473/07087515101. Thank you.

How to Conceal Drooping Eyelids Without Surgery.


Drooping eyelids are another natural part of the aging process, but there's no need to invest in eyelid surgery. You can spend thousands on an eyelift or you can try these beauty tips that cost nothing.
Here are some tips;

1. The Bottom Lash Trick:

Don't apply mascara to the bottom lashes. Instead, curl the upper lashes and then apply a couple coats of thickening mascara. Curling lashes always makes eyes pop.

2. The Upper Lid Trick:

A liquid liner stays better than pencils. Curve the line up on the outer corners of eyes to "lift" them. Avoid thick, heavy lines. You can go ahead and line the bottom lashes, just skip the liquid liner and try a pencil instead making sure to smudge it with your finger.

3. The Shimmer Dilemma:

Shimmer can be your worst enemy which is because shimmery eyeshadows only highlight crow's feet. The area they work best in is the inside corner of the eye. Apply a dot of shimmery light eyeshadow at the corner of the eye to make them pop.

4. The "Less is More" Rule:

When you have a saggy upper lid, do not go all out with several different colors of eyeshadow. Instead, keep eyeshadow in place all day with an eyeshadow primer, then apply a couple sweeps of a light eyeshadow that's flattering to the skin color. Skip the bright, crazy colours.

5. Say "Yes!" to False Lashes:

False eyelashes have made a comeback. But skip the full lashes from the 70s and instead opt for individual lashes.

Looking good is good biznez!!!
Have a great day.

M & E Happy Bride.
