    a+few+great+items+for+girls+who+wear+glasses_3356_800216231_0_0_7026053_300It's easy for women who wear glasses to follow one of two makeup mottos - either you wear too much makeup so that it stands out against your specs, or you don't wear any to keep it from competing with your frames.

    However, you don't need an "all or nothing" approach when making up your eyes. There are a few items that can help enhance eyes without detracting from your glasses.

    According to More magazine, glasses blur the shape of your eyes, so women who sport specs should define their eyes with soft black or brown eyeliner. Additionally, ladies should remember the importance of a great eyelash curler and water-resistant mascara.

    "If your lashes are on the long side and straight, they'll brush against your lenses as you blink, leaving behind mascara track marks," makeup artist Paula Dorf told the news source. The publication recommends running an eyelash curler under hot water before pressing your fringe, as the heat will help bend straight lashes.

    A water-resistant mascara is another great product for gals who wear glasses, as the formula is less likely to rub off on lenses.

  • Diwali makeup tips

    makeup+for+diwali_3356_800217089_0_0_7012661_300Indian woman getting ready to celebrate Diwali, the festival of lights, are likely to be searching for long-lasting beauty products and application techniques that can carry them through the celebration. Luckily, MyBangalore.com recently collected some expert advice for women who would like to avoid having to touch up their makeup throughout the busy celebration.

    After applying facial lotion, wait at least 10 minutes before you being to put on your makeup. The short break will ensure that your skin absorbs the moisturizer and that you are able to get results from cosmetics.

    Because long-wearing makeup dries more quickly than average products, experts recommend applying a small amount of the product to one area of the face at a time and then smoothing it over the skin.

    To add a bit of color to your complexion without interfering with your foundation, the news outlet suggests lightly dusting your cheeks with a loose powder.

    A sparkly eyeshadow is best during this festive season, as is a water-proof eyeliner and mascara that will not fade or run for women who may get a little teary-eyed!

  • Mascara that won't run at the gym (even if you do)

    When confronted with the getting-ready-for-the-gym dilemma, we're usually told to forgo the makeup altogether.

    A StyleList article by Deborah Dunham explores all the reasons we shouldn't sweat with it on as well as the best ways to shun that advice for those who refuse to sweat sans-products.

    Exercising opens the pores which invites sweat as well as any foundation or makeup sitting on top of the skin. This leads to more breakouts and skin problems. Besides, a sweaty face tracked with runny makeup may be less attractive than no makeup at all.

    Luckily, there are low risk strategies to avoid these common pitfalls.

    Go for less cakier applications of foundation and keep the concealer minimal.

    Water-resistant mascara and tinted moisturizer are also essential. A quick swipe of a tubing mascara might be your best bet for looking polished when you hit the treadmill.

  • Kelly Osbourne: Makeup at the gym helped me lose weight

    kelly+osbourne+makeup+at+the+gym+helped+me+lose+weight_3356_800247540_0_0_7073132_300Kelly Osbourne has been getting lots of attention for her size 2 frame, but the pop star says it was rough going on the treadmill.

    Osbourne told New York Magazine that slimming down wasn't easy - in her words, "it sucks!" - but it definitely helped to look good at the gym.

    "I know people say, 'Don't wear makeup at the gym,' but I am that girl that wears makeup at the gym," she told the news source.

    Before working out, she applies a touch of blush, foundation, and lip gloss. "If you don't like your reflection, you don't want to go back," she reasoned.

    Gals who want to look their best at the gym should use makeup that will last, like blinc Mascara. The water-resistant formula won't run or smudge as you sweat, and the mascara still comes off gently when you're done thanks to its innovative tubing formula. The mascara encases each lash in a tube, binding to your lashes better than conventional formulas to give you optimal volume and holding power.

  • Breeze beautifully through security checkpoints

    breeze+beautifully+through+security+checkpoints_3356_800250396_0_0_7076265_300With all the talk of protests and delays, it's imperative to keep things simple when flying home for Thanksgiving this year. But even if this advice saves you an extra groan or a pat-down, knowing how to efficiently pack cosmetics is a skill that'll serve you well through the years.

    According to the Los Angeles Times, the first question you should ask is whether you want to check your cosmetics or store them in your carry-on.

    If parting with your products is really not an option for the length of the flight, passengers must abide by the Transportation Security Administration's 3-1-1 rule - 3.4 oz containers in a 1 one-quart bag, limit 1 one per person.

    If you decide to check your beauty products, remember that all things goopy and wet have a charming tendency to leak in mid-air, so the Times recommends wrapping cosmetics in some sort of waterproof material.

    Better yet, why not use waterproof cosmetics? Applying water-resistant blinc Mascara before you board the plane will give you an effortless, jet-set appearance and you won't need to pack it in your carry-on. Its long-lasting formula is designed so that you won't have to retouch it - even if the TSA keeps touching you.
