  • Applying liquid eyeshadow so that it lasts all day

    applying+liquid+eyeshadow+so+that+it+lasts+all+day_3356_800678770_0_0_7044520_300Keeping your makeup looking fresh throughout the day is easier said than done - anyone who has encountered the telltale smudges around their eyes before lunchtime can attest to this fact. However, it's entirely possible, and without the need for expensive accessories. If you're looking to take your makeup regimen to the next level, here's how to give yourself long-lasting eyeshadow and liquid eyeliner that will keep throughout the day, according to BoldSky.com.

    First, apply a layer of primer to your eyelids, followed by a base makeup. Keep it neutral-toned for now - this is more of a "blanket" application. Roll in a bit of mascara (be sure to do this first so it has time to dry) and use darker shades to add some depth.

    This should be enough to keep your eye makeup looking fabulous for the entire day, but you can take it one step further by using a heated eyelash curler to give your peepers an extra dash of vitality. By following these steps, you should have beautiful, intriguing eyes through the entire work day!

  • Your skin quality can make or break your winter look

    The winter weather can be extremely damaging on your skin, and if you have a dry base to work with, your makeup is going to suffer. Along with using moisturizers to provide a fresh and vibrant backdrop for your liquid eyeliner and tube mascara, you may want to consider primer as a means of protecting your look, according to FocusOnStyle.com.

    Before you head out in the morning, be sure to use a revitalizing cream on your face and neck. This will help to open up your pores, repair dry skin and provide a solid base to work with when applying cosmetics.

    If you're wearing eyeshadow, be sure to use eyeshadow primer before you brave the cold. This will protect your eye makeup from running, smudging and creasing throughout the day, which is especially handy in the damp and snowy winter weather!

    Now that your skin is light and refreshed, you can go for a bold winter classic - a bright lip color. With the neutral outerwear dominating seasonal fashion, this can be a fabulous way to add a chic focal point to your ensemble.

  • Winged eyeliner is becoming more daring in the world of fashion

    Winged liquid eyeliner was a sensation during 2011, and it seems that the style is going big and bold for 2012. According to Glamour.com, the very winged-out eyeliner look is gaining traction on red carpets all around the world, and it seems that the more daring the style, the more appealing it will be!

    Winged eyeliner is actually quite easy to throw together, and the style is only limited by how far you're willing to push it. It is done by using liquid eyeliner along the entirety of your upper lash line to your outer creases. Instead of stopping there, you need to drag the brush out and then flick upwards to create an alluring shape on the outside of your eyes.

    This style has plenty of potential to create new and dynamic shapes on the perimeter of your eyes. Best of all, it also provides stunning contrast when paired with a bright shade of eyeshadow. Just be sure to use eyeshadow primer before you apply cosmetics to prevent your makeup from smudging or creasing throughout the day.

    All in all, it looks like the Spring 2012 fashion season will be highlighted by the bold eye makeup trends that have already begun lighting up red carpets around the world.

  • Pairing eye makeup choices with your accessories

    pairing+eye+makeup+choices+with+your+accessories_3356_800695868_0_0_14009407_300There's nothing worse than an outfit that looks a bit too "put-together," which is why many ladies opt to avoid pairing their eye makeup with their accessories. However, fashion mogul Sofia Vergara recently wore the style to the recent Screen Actor's Guild Awards and the result was simply spectacular, according to HollywoodLife.com.

    Vergara wore a selection of purple accessories that were set in silver, so her makeup artist set about trying to find a pairing with her eye makeup. She eventually settled on a dark plum eyeshadow that she paired with tube mascara and a touch of liquid eyeliner.

    Vergara's makeup artist first applied the eyeshadow to her upper and lower lids and used a bit of eyeshadow primer beforehand. This helps to protect the cosmetics from running or smudging and maintains a superior hold. Finally, the makeup artist used a bit of mauve eyeshadow on Vergara's inner creases as a final touch to add visual interest.

    A good rule of thumb when pairing makeup with accessories is to go with a complementary hue or a darker or lighter shade of the same color. This will create dazzling contrast that will wow others at your next social occasion.

  • Taylor Swift's eye makeup turning heads in London

    Taylor Swift has been taking time off from touring and hitting all the hot spots as she spends time in London, England. Not surprisingly, fans and media alike have been following her every move, and they've been struck by her dazzling take on the smoky eye look with lighter eyeshadow and a touch of tube mascara, according to Cosmopolitan.com.

    In what can only be described as the "foggy" eye, Swift has crafted a fabulous daytime makeup option that could be ideal for a day in the park or heading off to work. To recreate the look, start with one of your lightest colors as a base - creams, pale peach or opal are great options to cover your upper lid. Use a bit near your inner crease to act as an additional focal point.

    Next, use a bit of mid-level color like gray, violet or anything else you'd like to try. The trick to the look is the darkest hue - instead of using liquid eyeliner which could be a bit too striking during the day, Swift used the darkest eyeshadow in her palette to add visual interest to the perimeter of her eyes.

    When you're experimenting with eyeshadow, you don't want the perfect style to fall by the wayside during the day, so be sure to prep your skin with eyeshadow primer. This will protect your cosmetics from running, flaking and smudging throughout the day.
