  • Mascara may be the key to ensuring a flawless application of liquid liner

    Liquid liner boasts a plethora of benefits. The slick formula creates a flawless streak of color that lasts longer than many other products. Whether you want to rim your lids for a smoky eye or opt for a single stripe across your lash line for a wide-eyed stare, liquid liner is the way to go.

    As great as it is, however, the product is also notorious for how tricky it can be to apply. While a steady hand is key in putting on the makeup, Allure recently let its reader in on a tip that promises to make applying liquid liner simple enough for even the most fledgling makeup artist.

    Instead of painting on the liner first, the magazine recommends applying the product after you put on a few coats of mascara. "The mascara makes your lashes thick and stiff, so they're strong enough to act as barrier that helps direct the brush," the news source reports. "You can lean on the stiff lashes as you drag the liner along the lash line."

    Selecting a high-quality mascara will help to provide a great base for your liquid liner. Acrylic-based tubing mascara coats each individual lash, creating a flawless appearance that will last from day to night.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19926412-ADNFCR

  • Taupe eyes are ideal for your next date

    a+date+night+makeup+idea+to+try+out_3356_800549617_0_0_7023443_300Though dark, smoky eyes are traditionally the go-to look for a hot date, those who prefer a more subtle approach could try out taupe lids.

    Glamour.com recently recommended the sweet and simple technique, which will complement a fresh-faced approach to makeup.

    According to the news source, a dusting of lavender and taupe-colored eyeshadow across your lids, paired with gray eyeliner and a hint of highlighter in the corners of your eyes, is a lovely look.

    The magazine suggests pairing your shimmery gaze with sheer pink lip gloss for a girl-next-door glow.

    Women who want to try the look should make sure that their mascara is also clean and simple. An acrylic-based tubing mascara may be perfect for those who like a natural look. The product won't flake and will not require touch-ups throughout the day or night, so you won't have to worry about reapplying. ADNFCR-3356-ID-19926573-ADNFCR

  • Choose a colored mascara that will complement your eye color

    When selecting colors to enhance your eyes, it can be tricky to figure out which shades look better - those that match your eyes or a complementary hue?

    Luckily, celebrity makeup artist Carmindy recently spilled some insider information to StyleList.com, and she has effectively taken the guesswork out of choosing makeup that emphasizes your peepers.

    "When it comes to enhancing your natural eye color, I really believe that opposites attract," the beauty expert told the news source. "If your eyes are brown, I like to use a deep sapphire blue, for blue eyes, a nice, rich chocolate brown, for green eyes I like to go with...an amethyst color, and for hazel eyes, green really makes them pop."

    While most women turn to eyeshadows and liners when they want a dramatic look, ladies can also use a special mascara to add a hint of subtle color that is sure to brighten their eyes. Brown-eyed beauties can enhance their stare with blue water-resistant mascara, while green-eyed girls can make heads turn with a few coats of purple water-resistant mascara.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19932019-ADNFCR

  • Use black mascara to make white eyeliner pop

    While many people think of dark palettes when dreaming of edgy makeup, sometimes a light hue can be just as effective - like white eyeliner. But correctly applying the snow-colored makeup may not be as simple as drawing a white streak across your lids and heading out the door.

    According to the beauty blog Cee Mee, women need both white and black cosmetics to flawlessly execute this look. To begin, use a white eye pencil to draw a modest-sized stripe across your upper lash line, and emphasize the line by applying a streak of white eyeshadow on top of the liner.

    Next, apply a bit of black eye makeup to add definition and keep your peepers from looking washed out. The news source suggests applying an extremely thin line of black waterproof eyeliner as close to your upper lash line as possible, and finishing with black mascara on top lashes only.

    If you want to try this look, you could opt for a black tubing mascara - the acrylic-based formula won't smudge or flake, so you won't have to worry about the dark pigment interfering with your impeccable white eye makeup.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19932155-ADNFCR

  • Eye primer and special mascara may help makeup last

    eye+primer+and+special+mascara+may+help+makeup+last_3356_800075821_0_0_7034517_300Whether you are preparing for a long day of work or getting ready to attend a black-tie event, making sure your eye makeup lasts can be of the utmost importance. However, with the seemingly endless amount of products on the market, how can you easily select the best ones that will help your eyeshadow stay-put?

    Sometimes, it really may pay to look toward the stars for such answers - Hollywood stars, that is. To help Katie Holmes get ready for a show during New York Fashion Week, her makeup artist wanted to ensure that her face remained flawless throughout the entire event.

    "I prepped her lids with an eye primer in a light/medium shade before applying a blend of shimmery taupe and deep gray shadow," Mai Quynh told InStyle.com, adding that she finished the look with two coats of black mascara.

    Eye primer is a great product for women who want to make their makeup last, as it helps to keep pigments from running, fading and creasing on the lid.

    Ladies may also want to don an acrylic-based tubing mascara, which coats each lash individually, and will not flake, smudge or smear.
