  • Drink your way to radiant skin

    Not everyone was born with a gorgeous, glowing complexion, but luckily there are a variety of ways to treat your skin and ensure that it gets all the nutrients and vitamins it needs to be healthy and beautiful. Aside from skincare products and cosmetics, you can give your visage a visual boost by drinking smoothies with beneficial ingredients that your skin needs. Here are a few to try making in your kitchen.

    For clearer skin
    TotalBeauty.com recommends plenty of protein and antioxidants to help your skin clear up. For a cleansing smoothie, simply blend together one scoop of hemp protein (which you can find at a natural foods store), ½ cup of blueberries, ½ bunch of dandelion greens (with no stems), 11 ounces of coconut water, ¼ of an avocado and one tablespoon of raw cacao powder. Potassium, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and antioxidants in the mix will detox, hydrate and clear your complexion.

    For anti-aging
    If you're concerned about the visible effects of aging, like dullness, fine lines and discoloration, mySkin.com suggests a blend of papaya and blueberries. Packed full of antioxidants and phytochemicals, these fruits reverse free-radical damage and improve the health of your cells. They're also full of vitamins C and E, which are known to help aging skin look more youthful. Simply blend together one small papaya, one cup of blueberries and 30 ounces of water (or ice).

    For a lackluster complexion
    If your skin has barely survived the winter months or it's just not as glowing as you'd like it to be, nutritionist Kimberly Snyder has a great recipe that will fix that right up. Blend together ½ of a frozen Acai smoothie packet (found at health food stores), 1 ½ cups of coconut water, ½ cup of unsweetened almond milk, ½ of an avocado and one teaspoon of coconut oil or butter. The minerals, fiber and fatty acids will help to plump up your skin and restore it's healthy color.

    After you've revitalized your complexion by making these delicious smoothies on a regular basis, you'll have a totally clear slate for applying your favorite blinc cosmetics. Whether you use the tube mascara, liquid eyeliner or both, you'll look better than ever!

  • Blinc Trivia: Maya Rudolph opts for little liquid eyeliner at recent movie premiere

    maya+rudolph+opts+for+little+liquid+eyeliner+at+recent+movie+premiere_3356_800731570_0_0_7041001_300Just because you're a big movie star doesn't mean you need to wear pounds of makeup and an excess of liquid eyeliner, as actress Maya Rudolph proves. Recently, the celeb stepped out in style at the premiere of Casa de Mi Padre in Los Angeles wearing little more than foundation and mascara to highlight her natural beauty.

    Even on the red carpet, Rudolph shows that you can look fabulous without hiding your face beneath makeup. Whether you're wearing tube mascara or blush, going light can show that you are a confident woman who doesn't mind exhibiting her natural looks.

    If you want to try to use less makeup in an effort to cater to Hollywood trends, you might want to limit yourself to just tube mascara and liquid eyeliner from blinc. These items are all you need to bring out the beauty in your eyes and create a fresh look.

    The tube mascara can give you volume and length, while the liquid eyeliner can help your eyes appear wider and more intriguing. Neither will smudge or run, which can give you peace of mind.

  • Five things not to do in the world of beauty

    There are a lot of fashions and trends constantly popping up in the beauty world, and each woman's take on them is different. While one woman's idea of a made-up face involves a hint of tube mascara and a tinted lip balm, another one relies on every beauty product under the sun each time she gets ready in the morning. With so much disparity, we figured you could use a guide on what not to do when it comes to your hair and makeup.

    1. Forget to blend your face with your neck. Sometimes, ladies don't do a good job picking the right shade of foundation. This could lead to an obvious mismatch of the face and neck, which pretty much defeats the purpose of wearing foundation - it's supposed to be invisible. Choose a formula that matches your skin tone, then blend it down into your neck for even, natural coverage.

    2. Overpluck your eyebrows. According to Real Simple Magazine, most women make this mistake because they stand too close to the mirror. If you're focused on each individual hair that's out of place, you'll be forgetting about the big picture: the shape of your brows. Step back from the mirror when you're plucking to avoid too-skinny brows.

    3. Grow your hair out past your bra strap. Allure Magazine reports that derriere-length hair is a total beauty "don't." Not only does your fashion taste become questionable with such a 'do, but you'll also be sacrificing a lot of your hair's healthiness. There's no way the ends of your hair can stay soft and un-split at that length.

    4. Stencil in your brows. When brows are stenciled in with a shade of pencil that's darker than your hair color, it's pretty obvious that your real brows aren't doing you any favors. Choose eyebrow makeup that looks natural, like blinc's eyebrow mousse, and keep the shape of your brows natural.

    5. Transform your nails into talons. There's nothing sexy about nails that are too long to text, type or put contacts in with. Not only are curving talons impractical, but they're pretty much a guarantee that guys will not want your hands anywhere near them. Leave the claw-like manicures to celebrities like Gaga and stick to shorter, "squoval" nails.

  • Blinc Trivia: Katy Perry shines in silver dress and liquid eyeliner

    blinc+trivia+katy+perry+shines+in+silver+dress+and+liquid+eyeliner_3356_800736777_0_0_14009555_300If you need some new liquid eyeliner tips to try out this spring, you might want to peer over to the red carpet for inspiration. Hollywood celebs are out in full force this season with the hottest liquid eyeliner and tube mascara looks to turn heads, whether you're walking around in Beverly Hills or just running to the grocery store.

    One woman who always knows how to make a splash at big events is Katy Perry. The pop music sensation recently showed up to the 2012 Echo Awards in a disco ball-inspired silver dress and bright blue hair. To contrast the overall look, Perry wore dark liquid eyeliner, which brought out the beauty in her peepers.

    You might not have access to a professional makeup artist like Perry and other A-list celebs, but you can look like you do with the right cosmetics from blinc.

    The liquid eyeliner and tube mascara are all you need to look like a star. They can give your eyes a dramatic look that won't run or smudge throughout the day, whether you're going out to catch a movie or heading to the office.
