  • Home remedies to make lashes shiny and thick

    While not everyone may have been blessed with luscious, long lashes, there are a few homemade remedies that may help to make lashes appear shiny and full.

    Various substances such as olive oil, castor oil, sweet almonds and vaseline can nurture lashes when applied regularly, according to ArabTimesOnline.com. To try this at home, women can use an eyelash brush or a mascara brush to coat their lashes in the product and leave it on overnight.

    A woman's diet can also affect the thickness of her lashes as a lack of protein can inhibit lash growth, according to LashGrowth.net.

    Proper makeup removal is also important. Ladies are advised to do so carefully without applying too much pressure and instead use circular movements, the website advises. Women can use a natural makeup remover such as black or chamomile tea to wash their faces free of cosmetics.

    In order to define their eyes, ladies may want to try blinc's Long Lash, which can give them a natural, full eyelash look.

  • How to properly apply eyeliner

    Eyeliner can be one of the most difficult products to apply as it requires a steady hand and a lot of practice. However, learning how to correctly put on the product may be worth the time, as eyeliner can help define eyes and add intensity.

    Because liner can smudge easily and eyelids tend to be greasy, Rae Morris, celebrity makeup artist, suggests ridding eyelids of oily residue with an alcohol-free makeup remover prior to application and dusting lids with powder that will absorb oils throughout the day.

    Before applying eyeliner, Morris recommends putting pencils in the freezer for 30 seconds. Ladies can then remove the chilled liner and sharpen the pencil.

    Those who have a hard time creating a steady line can use a piece of scotch tape as a stencil. As a general rule of thumb, eyeliner on top of the lid should be three times thicker than the bottom line.

    Morris told the news source that women who have rounder eyes can create an almond-shape around their eyes with a powder or gel liner. However, those with elongated or oval shaped eyes may find that pencils and pens are easier to use.

    To complete eye definition women can apply acrylic-based tubing mascara that matches their chosen eyeliner color.

  • How to replicate Cleopatra's eye makeup

    how+to+replicate+cleopatra+s+eye+makeup_3356_800205704_0_0_7057644_300With Halloween a few days away, many people are working hard to put the last minute touches on their costumes. Women who are still trying to figure out who (or what) they should dress up as may want to channel their inner queen and become Cleopatra.

    However, the most important component to making a fantastic Cleopatra costume may lie within recreating her dramatic eye makeup. Luckily, with a bit of expert advice, this won't be hard to do.

    "Use a black liquid liner with a wide felt tip - this will give you a nice thick line without having to paint your lash line over and over and over again," Allure magazine reports.

    Gals should begin by lining their eyes completely, going over the outline to make the makeup as dark and dramatic as possible. To capture Cleopatra's spectacular look, don't forget the cat-eye detailing.

    "Extend the line from the outer corner of the eye directly across until it reaches the outer tip of your eyebrow," the news source suggests.

    Finally, brush on multiple coats of black mascara. Elizabeth Taylor, who portrayed the famous queen, was blessed with a double set of lashes. While you may not boast such fringe, mascara can help your lashes look especially thick and full.

  • Conceal undereye circles for an impeccable look

    conceal+undereye+circles+for+an+impeccable+look_3356_800207725_0_0_7070088_300No matter how impeccable your eye makeup is, undereye circles can ruin a beautiful look. However, there are simple ways to treat these discolored areas, and your face will easily appear flawless.

    If the circles have a blue tint, skin beneath the eye is most likely thin. Allure magazine suggests using a treatment that boasts retinol and vitamin K, which will thicken the skin and keep capillaries from leaking, respectively.

    Women with brown-colored circles, however, may want to use a product with up to two percent hydroquinone, which can help to lighten skin, the news source reports.

    Good concealer is key in quickly reducing the appearance of discolored skin beneath your eyes, and the news outlet reports that ladies should use a formula that either matches one's complexion or is a shade lighter.

    However, when applying the makeup, concentrate the formula from the inner corner to the middle of the eye, where the skin is most discolored.

    Additionally, make sure that you wear tubing mascara. The product won't smudge or flake, so the mascara won't run and make circles appear even darker.

  • How to look glamorous without wearing a lot of makeup

    how+to+look+glamorous+without+wearing+a+lot+of+makeup_3356_800207724_0_0_7066918_300Whether you had a long day at work or are feeling a bit under the weather, sometimes you simply don't feel like wearing layers of makeup when stepping out for a night on the town. However, you also may not want to leave the house looking like you just woke up from a 3-day nap.

    Luckily, you don't need loads of products to create a glamorous look, as long as you are armed with a few essentials - blush, sheer shadow, mascara and lipstick.

    First, apply a warm, slightly shimmery blush to your cheeks - it's a simple way to quickly perk up your complexion.

    Next, emphasize your eyes with a bit of nude-colored shadow and lots of black mascara. Because you won't be wearing layers of eye makeup, it's imperative to apply the mascara flawlessly as any imperfections will be especially noticeable.

    For an impeccable application, O Magazine recommends laying a makeup mirror flat on the surface in front of you so that you are looking down as you coat your lashes.

    Finally, for the "wow factor," paint your pout with a bright-colored lipstick. The bold hue will immediately create a glamorous appearance and you'll turn heads without having to apply more than four products!
