  • Hot eye makeup tips for autumn

    fall+makeup+tips_3356_800120282_0_0_7042633_300When temperatures begin to cool, many women flock to the shops hunting for clothing in darker hues. And, according to Sioux Falls Argus Leader, your makeup should change with your wardrobe this season.

    While summer was the time for a shimmery, delicate look, fall will be more dramatic and intense.

    "The clothes this season are pretty elaborate, with lots of layers, lots of texture. Makeup follows that," makeup artist Shannon Barnes told the news source.

    Barnes suggests using a plum-colored eyeshadow to create a "smoldering" look that boasts a soft intensity as opposed to the typical smoky eye, which can appear harsh.

    In addition to coating lashes with mascara, remember to enhance brows.

    "Nobody really thinks of them, but give your face a really defined brow and it just finishes the look," Barnes added. "That's part of the reason celebrities always look good. They focus on the details."

    If you have sparse brows or just want to further emphasize your arches, use eyebrow mousse to add color, fullness and definition to brows.

  • How to keep your eyelashes from falling out

    how+to+keep+lashes+from+falling+out_3356_800122798_0_0_8725_300It can be a bit disconcerting when more than one lash falls out as you're removing your mascara. Bald spots on your lash line are hardly attractive,ac and with a few tips, you don't have to worry about losing too many lashes.

    According to Celebrity-Beauty-Tip-Goldmine.com, while it is natural for your lashes to go through a cycle of falling out and growing back, if you are losing a significant amount of hairs you may be rubbing too hard when removing mascara.

    To minimize hair loss, try saturating a cotton ball or tissue with eye makeup remover to loosen mascara. The solution will softly encourage the makeup release itself from your lashes.

    The website also advises women to refrain from curling lashes as squeezing the fragile hairs makes them more prone to falling out.

    Applying too much mascara can weigh down lashes, making them weak and may eventually lead to them falling out. Women should try to use one coat of mascara instead of two.

    A tubing mascara may also be effective for women worried about their lashes. When doused with water the tubes loosen their grip and easily slide off.

  • Eyebrow threading to make your brows look crisp

    eyebrow+threading_3356_800125312_0_0_7035423_300Few women are blessed with ideally manicured natural brows, causing many ladies to search for ways to perfect their brow line to make their faces look magazine ready. One method that seems to be gaining attention amongst women around the world is eyebrow threading.

    The hair removal method originated in India and is popular across the Middle East, according to WiseGeek.com. The practice involves twisting a piece of thread, typically cotton, into a double strand that picks up a line of hair and then removes it creating a very clean precise hairline.

    Instead of painful plucking, women can opt for threading, which experts claim makes hair grow back finer and is quicker to do than tweezing. A few swift movements from a local salonist can have your brows complete within less than 10 minutes.

    Threading is also used for other facial body hairs such as the upper lip and sides of the face.

    In addition to wanting well-shaped brows, some women desire thicker-looking arches. Those who'd like to enhance their brows can use an eyebrow mousse, which is formulated to make arches appear fuller.

  • Quick tricks to refresh your look

    quick+tricks+to+refresh+your+look_3356_800161130_0_0_7068732_300When looking for quick ways to instantly refresh your face, many experts seem to focus on skincare. However, ladies may want to direct their efforts toward a different feature of their face - their eyes.

    According to analysts at Allure magazine, there are several easy ways to instantly transform your looks, and all involve simple eye makeup tricks.

    "I am always amazed at how much definition it gives my eyes when I use a black liner along the inner rims of the lower lashes," deputy editor/beauty director Amy Keller Laird wrote on the publication's website.

    Additionally, associate editor Elizabeth Siegel revealed that she switched from her traditional black eyeliner to a cocoa-colored pencil, which she claims is a softer complement to her brown eyes.

    Ladies looking for a quick way to refresh their look may also want to try colored mascara. Brown water-resistant mascara is a great alternative for blondes, as black formulas can appear too harsh. Navy blue mascara is wonderful on all women, as the cool color instantly helps brighten the whites of your eyes.

  • Geometric eyeliner is a hot new trend

    geometric+eyeliner_3356_800162194_0_0_7023105_300Younger stars like Taylor Swift and Kelly Osborne have been spotted wearing a new eyeliner trend, one that pushes the boundaries of eye definition beyond crazy colors into geometric shapes,according to Stylist StyleList.com. This futuristic look is a theatrical effect that can easily be created with eye shadow and liner.

    "Makeup artists often feel a strong line [in a variety of colors] lends more of a statement in enhancing the eye than several eye shadow colors all blended together," beauty expert Victor Cembellin told the news outlet. And, because the makeup is applied to the lower lash line instead of the upper lid, the effect is visible 24/7 and not only when a woman blinks.

    Those brave enough to try the new trend can do so by drawing a brightly colored line from the outer corners of their eye to the middle of their lower lash-line then tracing the edge of the new line with a small, dry shadow brush, according to the news source.

    Women who try this trend may want to fill in their eyebrows with an eyebrow mousse, which will complete their arches and help to balance the look.
