    jessica+ennis+competes+in+a+full+face+of+makeup_3356_800759973_0_0_14010375_300It might not seem that weird to put on a bit of makeup if you're off to a yoga session or a pilates class, but would you bother if you were about to embark on a serious workout at the gym? Allure Magazine recently reported that Jessica Ennis, a track and field star who will be competing in this year's London 2012 Olympics, wears a full face of makeup when she competes - tube mascara, liquid eyeliner and all!

    "I definitely think if I feel I look good, it makes me feel more confident," she told The Daily Mail. If you're in the same boat, you might be wondering about the best types of products to use while you're working your butt off during a grueling workout.

    First, Allure recommends using a gentle moisturizer to act as a barrier that will prevent your skin from stinging from the sweat. Next, use a water-based foundation or mineral makeup to even out your complexion - oilier formulas can clog pores.

    Finally, use blinc's tube mascara and liquid eyeliners to amp up your eyes and give you that last shot of confidence. Not only will they enhance your best features, but they won't run or smudge - no matter how much sweat's dripping down your face!

  • Three ways to enhance your makeup look in photos

    looking+great+in+pictures+is+easy+with+these+tips_3356_800766356_0_0_7010722_300It's pretty much a given that you'll look great in pictures if you stick to using your blinc tube mascara and liquid eyeliner, which won't smudge or run no matter what. But what about the rest of your makeup? If you go too heavy-handed with the application, you might end up looking a lot different in a photo than you did in the mirror. Here are a few ways you can ensure a flattering shot.

    1. Go sheer on the lips. According to Allure Magazine, too much color or shine can look jarring with a camera's flash. Sheer formulas give you the perfect hint of both.

    2. Use blush to avoid looking flat. A touch of creamy blush on the apples of your cheeks, along with a bit of highlighter along the cheekbones, gives your face dimension.

    3. Translucent powder. Powder can get rid of excess oil, which makes your face look greasy in pictures, but a tinted powder will show up. Dust a translucent formula over your face instead, which will remain invisible.

  • Miley Cyrus leaves gym, shows off abs on her way out

    miley+cyrus+leaves+gym+shows+off+abs+on+her+way+out_3356_800765828_0_0_14012641_300With blinc's liquid eyeliner and tube mascara, you no longer have an excuse to skip your workout at the gym. These cosmetics keep your face looking beautiful, even when you work up a sweat - and exercise is something that even celebrities value.

    Pop singing sensation Miley Cyrus can say a lot about the value of working out, according to Celebuzz.com. Recently, the news source reported that the young star was seen leaving her weekend workout in a belly-revealing top that showed off her abs.

    Cyrus is allegedly adhering to a gluten-free diet, which may contribute to her lovely figure.

    If you're afraid of hitting the gym because you fear running into someone you know with sweat running down your face, have no fear! Blinc's cosmetics can keep you looking beautiful as you pump some iron.

    The liquid eyeliner and tube mascara are both designed to stay on through sweat, and they can easily be washed away at the end of the day with a bit of warm water. You don't have to be a celebrity to look hot while you go for a run on a treadmill!

  • How to stop acne from ruining your look

    acne+shouldn+t+be+drawing+the+attention+away+from+your+eye+makeup_3356_800768023_0_0_14053520_300There's nothing worse than waking up one morning to see a zit greeting you in the mirror. Whether it's in a prominent spot on your forehead or nestled into the crook of your nose, blemishes like these can ruin the effect of your favorite eye makeup products, like tube mascara and liquid eyeliner. Your eyes will be drawn to your zit - not your peepers, but luckily there's one tip that can help.

    Spot-treating acne with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid products is your best bet, but doing so will take one or two days before you start noticing results, reports Allure Magazine. Instead of waiting for blemishes to pop up before you treat them, you should be taking preventative measures.

    Even if you don't see any pimples at the moment, you should be using an anti-acne cream and face wash if you know you're prone to them. A thin layer over the areas where zits typically show up is all you need. Keep in mind that some of these products can be drying, so it's best to follow up with an oil-free moisturizer. After a few weeks, you should be able to enjoy your favorite blinc cosmetics on a clean slate!

  • Why you might need to calm down

    take+some+time+to+relax+for+your+complexion+s+sake_3356_800768034_0_0_7023705_300Are you constantly running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to get things done? If you're always stressing out about your performance at work, maintaining relationships and dealing with everything else life throws at you, your skin might be paying for it. Stress can lead to a variety of health issues, and clogged pores and blemishes are just some of them, reports Allure Magazine.

    If you've noticed extra zits on your face lately that have been distracting peoples' attention from your fabulous liquid eyeliner and tube mascara, it's probably time to find ways to relax. First off, have you ever taken a mental health day? That might be one way to calm down - not only will you be able to focus on yourself for once, but you can use the free time to take care of those errands you never seem to get a chance to tackle.

    If that's not an option, try turning your bathroom into a spa for a night. After work, come home and turn on the bath, filling it up with some aromatherapy oils or bath salts that will lift your spirits and soothe your body. A few candles can add to the ambiance, and of course, feel free to pamper yourself with a mani/pedi, face mask or body exfoliant. You'll emerge a lot more calm - and your skin will be a clean slate for your favorite blinc products!
