  • Groom your eyebrows to showcase flawless eye makeup

    Women who often spend a good amount of time in the morning making sure that their eye makeup is impeccable may be doing themselves a disservice if they don't also pay close attention to their eyebrows.

    Carefully shaped arches are necessary to create a neat look. A few stray hairs on your brow line can ruin an otherwise fantastic makeup job!

    To create flawless brows, simply follow a few basic rules.

    The first step to gauge the natural shape of your brows and work to streamline their form, rather than trying to create a completely new line. The way they naturally grow is likely to be flattering to your features.

    Next, be sure to use tweezers that allow for precision. Tools that make it hard to grab the hairs you want may lead to sloppy brows and irritated skin.

    Once you've created beautiful arches, find long-lasting eye makeup products that won't detract from their appearance. Water-resistant tubing mascara that won't smudge, clump, smear or flake is ideal.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19866995-ADNFCR

  • Use warm, neutral makeup to snag Kristen Stewart's romantic look

    Kristen Stewart typically wears dramatic makeup with a rocker edge when she appears out on the town, but her famous alter-ego, Bella Swan, is much more of a girl-next-door.

    In order to give the pretty actress an innocent and fresh-faced look for the third film, makeup artist Robin Mathews employed a few techniques that any women could implement.

    To make Stewart look warm and alive next to the pale-faced vamps who populate the story, Mathews used products with warm undertones, according to Allure magazine.

    "Because her skin is so fair, I applied a foundation that was half a shade warmer," he told the publication. He topped the look off with a shimmery bronzing powder.

    And, because most of Stewart's eyebrows had been tweezed off for The Runaways, Mathews also applied false brows to the starlet every morning before shooting.

    Women who work hard to create a natural look will likely enjoy the smooth application of tubing mascara, which forms a neat seal around lashes and won't smudge, clump or smear.

  • Allure offers the secret to applying liquid eyeliner

    Many women love the look of liquid eyeliner, but the product can easily appear messy when not correctly applied. However, by using the right technique, it's possible to achieve the results you want.

    According to Allure.com, the benefits of precisely applied liner include eyes that look larger, eyelashes that appear longer and an overall more polished appearance.

    To get all those perks with liquid products, there are a few things to keep in mind.

    The website recommends choosing a high-quality product to begin with, and suggests choosing a fast-drying formula to avoid blurry lines, and a rich and flattering color.

    Next the publication suggests lining your upper lash line with a pencil to provide yourself with a guide.

    Finally, if you do make a mistake with liquid liner, use a cotton swab dipped in facial moisturizer to fix small smears without removing all of the makeup.

    After your eyeliner is impeccable, consider applying acrylic-based tubing mascara to complete the clean look. For a dramatic impact, blue or green water-resistant mascara might be ideal. ADNFCR-3356-ID-19878134-ADNFCR

  • Gossip Girls step out in Paris in edgy eye makeup

    In the summertime, many women prefer lighter-colored cosmetics that look natural. However, to prevent your fresh-faced approach from becoming ho-hum, you could try one the season's latest makeup trends and wear two different eye shadow shades at the same time - one on your top lid and one on your bottom.

    According to Glamour.com, two of the cast members from the hit CW's hit show, Gossip Girl, recently stepped out sporting the trend at a Chanel fashion show in Paris.

    Blake Lively and Leighton Meester both looked fantastic in their two-tone eye makeup, though Lively wore two similar golden shades, and Meester chose a copper color on her bottom lid and a gray tone above her lash line.

    Those who try out the trendy look could swipe on a tinted tubing mascara for added polish.

  • The trick to flawlessly applying mascara

    We've all been there. Your lashes look perfect, but a few smudges of mascara have found their way onto your upper lids. Do you scrap the impeccable application and take it all off, or spend the day with a blotchy lash line?

    Luckily, those who know a few expert tricks will be able to quickly apply mascara cleanly and effortlessly.

    Makeup artist Pat McGrath suggested to Allure magazine that when swiping on the product, it's best to hold your mirror just below eye level, so that your gaze is downward and your eyes are partially closed.

    Brush the mascara wand through your lashes, and pause for a moment while the product dries, she added. This will prevent the product from making its way onto your lid.

    If some of the mascara does smear, apply facial moisturizer on a cotton swab and dab at the offending splotches.

    Using an acrylic-based tubing mascara, like Blinc water-resistant mascara, may make it easier to create a flawless finish. The product won't smear, smudge or clump, and will create a water-resistant seal around each individual lash.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19881662-ADNFCR
