  • Makeup expert André Drykin reveals the trick to smoky eyes

    Many women spend hours debating over their makeup purchases at the cosmetics counter, agonizing over the right eyeliner or mascara, only to find that they can't create the dramatic look they crave when they return home.

    Those who have been searching for the perfect technique to create sultry, smoky eyes can look no further - makeup artist André Drykin recently revealed to Marie Claire a few ways to achieve the trendy look.

    The first step, according to Drykin, is to create a smooth surface on the eyelid with a cream concealer. Then, using a gray or black pencil liner, draw a thick smudged line on both your upper and lower lashes, he told the magazine.

    Complete the look by softly sweeping a powder shadow upward over your lids and past the crease of your eyes.

    Of course, smoky eyes require impeccable lashes. Tubing mascara is the perfect solution for women who want to enjoy their night out without having to reapply their makeup.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19808194-ADNFCR

  • Active women can turn to waterproof mascara in the summer months

    Most of us love long, lazy days on the beach and sultry nights spent dining al fresco, but the heat and the humidity of the summer months can sometimes cause our makeup to run.

    Makeup artist to the stars, Kimara Ahnert, recently dished a few tips to Access Hollywood to help women avoid the unflattering effects of blurry makeup.

    Ahnert suggested that active women who want to look fresh despite their busy schedules and the balmy weather can turn to waterproof mascara for a pristine appearance.

    "Waterproof mascara, an old standby, has an added polymer that makes the formula stick to your lashes and resistant to water," she told the news provider. "To avoid mascara smudges on your eyelids, apply a dusting of pressed powder on your brow bone."

    The expert, who has worked with the likes of Brooke Shields, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Gwyneth Paltrow, also suggested using oil-free foundations and concealer during the warm months.

    Women who desire the hold of waterproof mascara, but with easy removal can turn to tubing mascara, which requires no makeup remover and slide off with simply water and gentle pressure.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19811882-ADNFCR

  • Rachel McAdams looks flawless in Morning Glory

    Rachel McAdams has proven she can do it all -- from tearjerker romances like The Notebook, to laugh-out-loud comedies like Wedding Crashers and Mean Girls, and even thrillers like Red Eye.

    Next, the beautiful starlet will be appearing in "Morning Glory," opposite Diane Keaton and Harrison Ford.

    Keaton and Ford play Colleen Peck and Mike Pomeroy respectively; two playful news anchors who bait their overworked producer, Becky Fuller (McAdams).

    Whether she's playing a materialistic teenager or a professional working woman, McAdams always sports impeccable makeup.

    If you're looking to nab some of her beauty secrets, create an effortless look with natural colors and long-lasting products.

    "I am not that crazy about waterproof mascara because it's hard to remove at the end of the night. I prefer Kiss Me mascara," McAdams dished to InStyle magazine. "It's not waterproof, but it's great. It doesn't smudge and you can take it off with water."ADNFCR-3356-ID-19817700-ADNFCR

  • Sunglasses and tubing mascara may be beneficial to eye health

    As the warm weather approaches, women who like to soak up the sun are likely to be shopping for the perfect pair of shades. Whether they don something stylish and trendy, or a pair of classic dark frames, most know that sunglasses are an accessory that enhances your health as much as your ensemble.

    Because exposure to UV rays can lead to glaucoma, cataracts and age-related macular degeneration, the American Optometric Association (AOA) suggests purchasing sunglasses that block at least 99 percent of both UVA and UVB rays, screen out 75 to 90 percent of visible light and have a gray tint for proper color recognition.

    So, the next time you hit the beach or spend an afternoon poolside, be sure to throw on some sunglasses.

    In addition to shades, in the summer months, choosing the right eye makeup may be beneficial to one's eye health and comfort.

    Women who live an active lifestyle and spend time outdoors are likely to benefit from tubing mascara, which will not flake off and irritate their eyes the way that some traditional mascaras might.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19823314-ADNFCR

  • The perfect makeup for summer brides

    When brides-to-be are planning their look for their wedding, an important component of their overall appearance will be their bridal makeup. And, even for women who have decided on a natural look, there are still things to keep in mind.

    To ensure you look your best, Brides.com recommends paying close attention to your skin in the weeks approaching the wedding.

    It's a good idea to clean skin before bedtime, removing all traces or dirt and makeup before hitting the sack for the night, the news source suggests.

    When deciding on colors and products, it's important to choose a timeless and flattering style that won't appear dated in the coming years - remember, your wedding pictures will last forever!

    Next, it may be advisable to focus on choosing long-lasting products that won't need to be reapplied as the day goes on.

    Tubing mascara, which is an acrylic-based product that forms a seal around lashes, is ideal for brides. It's water-resistant (in case of tears!), and won't smear, clump or smudge. The product is often recommended by makeup artists, which means its perfect for your big day.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19855186-ADNFCR
