  • Blinc Trivia: Can you paint with all the colors of your eye shadow?

    blinc+trivia+can+you+paint+with+all+the+colors+of+your+eye+shadow_3356_800523203_0_0_7013114_300The world of professional makeup artistry knows no bounds, and this is certainly no less the case with makeup genius Katie Alves.

    Alves has been taking the beauty world by storm thanks to her amazingly-rendered eyelids featuring detailed Disney scenes. Think the Mad Hatter's tea party, an Aladdin sunset or a swirly Nightmare Before Christmas masterpiece - all painted on one's lids in the utmost detail. As Fashionista.com puts it, "the girl can do with make-up what most people can barely do with paint, let alone on a tiny patch of fragile skin."

    We're sure it takes an extra-skilled set of fingers to pull off something like this, but even those with slightly less impressive masterpieces to impose on their eyelids can make use of a good eye shadow primer like blinc Eyeshadow Phase One. We're willing to bet Alves couldn't have made her creations stick without a smudge and crease-resistant base.

  • Summer solutions to eyeshadow mishaps

    summer+solutions+to+eyeshadow+mishaps_3356_800528432_0_0_7042658_300You're rushing to work (or whatever other enviable event you've got on your social calendar), you successfully navigate throngs of people and crowded, sweltering subway tunnels and finally arrive at your destination only to realize your eye makeup is a total disaster. Sound familiar?

    Fortunately, there's no unwritten rule that says you have to be a slave to summer makeup mishaps. With a bit of guided insight and careful strategizing, you, too, can be the picture of balmy summer goddess perfection.

    "If you're brave enough to dabble in eye makeup, stick to hues or gold, ivory and light gray which are less likely to become horrific if they shift out of place," Ology.com recommends.

    While light, fail-proof hues are always a safe bet, you shouldn't have to sacrifice your favorite bold shadows - and you won't, given you've got blinc Eyeshadow Phase One in your arsenal. This patented formula works as an ideal base for any and all of your eye makeup looks and works to prevent creasing and smearing throughout the day.

  • For eyeshadow that will never crease again

    for+eyeshadow+that+will+never+crease+again_3356_800530714_0_0_7042633_300Tired of eyeshadow that crumples up like your 150-thread count sheets on a sleepless night? The last thing you need is eye makeup that won't hold true to your higher beauty ideals, so here's a few steps you can take to get smooth, crease-free lids every time.

    The beauty experts at Allure.com recommend testing eyeshadow on your wrist to determine whether it's prone to makeup mishaps throughout the day. If you bend your hand back and forth several times only to discover tell-tale creases on your wrist, chances are you should keep the search going. This same basic strategy can apply to virtually any makeup product, up to and including eyeliner, which you can lightly smudge on your hand to see how it will hold up on your lid.

    If you're not so game for skipping out on your favorite eyeshadows over a bit of faulty product design, use blinc Eyeshadow Phase One to get uniformly budge-proof results, no matter which dollar-store shadow you feel like wearing today. The formula is designed to provide a steadfast base for eye makeup that won't crease or smudge throughout the day.

  • Blinc Trivia: Kendall Jenner's eye makeup style shines at New York Fashion Week

    blinc+trivia+kendall+jenner+s+eye+makeup+style+shines+at+new+york+fashion+week_3356_800598377_0_0_14028597_300Kendall Jenner is the younger half sister of the Kardashian girls, but the young lady is already making waves in the fashion world. Jenner was one of the many models to grace the runway at the Sherri Hill Spring 2012 fashion show, but it was her eye makeup style that stole the spotlight, according to HollywoodLife.com.

    Makeup artist Rudy Miles explained that Jenner's brown and gold eyeshadow were all about creating a bright and bold look.

    "I don't want the 'I've been out all night' look, so I just did one look that was all about the luminous skin and an eye that was defined without being overly smoky," Miles told the news source.

    Miles blended the two hues to create a fabulously functional look for any social occasion. If you're thinking of trying it on for size, he suggests using a soft lip color to ensure that you don't detract from your chic eye makeup.

    When you're wearing eyeshadow this fall, make sure it stays brilliant with blinc Eye Shadow Primer. This innovative product protects your cosmetics from running and smudging and can actually help to moisturize your skin after only a week's use.

  • Blinc Trivia: Makeup tips to improve your look in holiday photos

    blinc+trivia+makeup+tips+to+improve+your+look+in+holiday+photos_3356_800660267_0_0_7004168_300With the holiday season in full swing, you're undoubtedly going to put on your tube mascara and liquid eyeliner and pose for your fair share of pictures. However, when it comes to your foundation and other cosmetics, you will need to take extra care to avoid your face shining or looking very obvious in photographs, according to The National Post.

    With the quality of digital cameras these days, it's a lot harder to hide imperfections behind your cosmetics. One ingredient you should look for in your makeup selection is titanium dioxide - this substance is found in many products and can cause your face to shine when a flashbulb is going off.

    A matte look is probably your best bet - avoid heavy powder and use eye makeup as your main source of color. This will allow you to use neutral hues on your lips and cheeks, giving you a more natural complexion in photographs.

    Taking the perfect picture is just one of the many things you have to worry about during the holidays, but by following these tips, you can smile for the camera and not have to worry about an embarrassing photo.
