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.

<![CDATA[Mascara that won't run at the gym (even if you do)]]> Tue, 25 Mar 2014 10:19:27 +0000 raveinfo 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.

If you want to look great while you're dancing and having a wonderful time, the key is long-lasting makeup that won't quit on you in the hot weather.

For starters, use a tinted moisturizer rather than foundation to even out your complexion. These formulas are lighter and look more natural, so you won't have to worry about sweating off your makeup. Use lip and cheek stain to give yourself a natural flush that won't smudge off as you spend your day in the sun.

On your eyes, blinc's bold liquid eyeliner is perfect for adding definition and helping you achieve the latest trends, like cat eyes. The no-run, no-smudge formula won't budge until you're ready to take it off, meaning your eyes will look gorgeous throughout the show.

A bit of tube mascara can also help to lengthen and volumize your lashes, so you'll have plenty of fringe to flirt with should you stumble upon someone worthy of a sultry gaze.

They're a useful way to protect your eyes from the damaging rays of the sun and prevent fine lines and wrinkles from forming around your peepers. That means a smoother surface for your eyeshadows, liquid eyeliners and tube mascaras to work with, not to mention a younger-looking complexion!

Wear sunglasses whenever you're outside or in the car. This will not only prevent UV damage to your eyes, but it will stop you from squinting, which can eventually lead to crow's feet and wrinkles underneath your eyes if you're always doing it. Choose large frames for maximum coverage.

Of course, sunblock should also be used as well. While there are plenty of non-greasy formulas out there, it might be a good idea to use blinc's waterproof tube mascaras and lash primer just in case so your eye makeup stays put if the sunscreen gets a bit messy. With these products, your careful application will look just as great at the end of the day, no matter what.

Despite a careful application of tube mascara and liquid eyeliner, your lids can still give it away. Here's how to fix the problem.

According to Allure Magazine, one dermatologist recommends dabbing a bit of nasal spray on your lids to help calm the area down. "Nasal sprays contain something called oxymetazoline, which addresses both redness and swelling," she told the source. Just use a cotton ball to gently apply it.

An eyeshadow base, like blinc's Fountain of Youthful Color Eye Shadow Primer, can also help to solve the problem. Not only does it help your eyeshadow stay on all day, but it can conceal fine lines and wrinkles as well as offer your skin plenty of anti-aging benefits. Just smooth it on, then top with a peachy eyeshadow, which will help to combat blue, purple or gray tones that might be ruining your look. Afterward, apply tube mascara and liquid eyeliner as usual to finish your look.

If you ever wake up looking less-than-gorgeous, here are a few tips to get your eyes back to normal.

According to Allure Magazine, one quick fix is to use a tea bag as a compress. The caffeine in the tea helps to constrict blood vessels, while the tannins in the bag will help to reduce inflammation. In addition, the pressure on the area will help to reduce puffiness.

If you're not a tea drinker, any cold compress will also do the trick, whether it's a bag of peas from the freezer, two cucumber slices or even your regular eye cream that's been stored in the fridge. Cold can help to shrink capillaries and improve the area's drainage. Even giving yourself a gentle massage can work wonders.

Once your eyes are de-puffed, a bit of concealer on your undereye area will cover up any dark circles. Liquid eyeliner and tube mascara can help draw the right kind of attention to your eyes and help to define your features.

However, it's hard to imagine looking your best when you're working out and sweating bullets.

Just because you're exercising doesn't mean you have to drop all of your efforts to look glamorous while getting in shape. There are a few ways you can look hot while staying hit at the gym.

First, find form-flattering clothing that keeps you dry and comfortable while working out. This means steering clear of those baggy sweatpants that might be holding you back from looking your best.

Next, don't be afraid to put on a little foundation to give yourself a natural glow before you work out. This can cover up any unsightly blemishes beforehand and improve the overall appearance of your skin.

Finally, apply tube mascara and liquid eyeliner from blinc to give your eyes some pop. These cosmetics are composed of a no-run formula that is guaranteed not to smudge, even during your most vigorous workouts.

However, many women try to avoid applying cosmetics prior to exercising in for fear of clogging their pores and increasing the chances of a breakout.

While it's true that wearing certain types of makeup may do more harm than good to your skin while working out, Mother Nature News reports that not all cosmetics are inappropriate for rigorous activity.

It's possible to wear concealer and foundation before hitting the gym, as long as you pay attention to the type you are using. For instance, oil-based cosmetics are prone to smudging over time and can clog pores. Instead, mineral-based or natural foundations and makeup should be used to allow the skin to breathe and remain flawless during exercise.

If you're especially concerned about your eye makeup smudging while you're working out, invest in blinc's liquid eyeliner and tube mascara to relieve your anxiety. These cosmetics are composed of a no-run formula that won't smudge, even while you're pumping iron.

If you're heading off to a tropical location in the near future, you're going to want to look your best when sunbathing on the beach. Keeping a bit of tube mascara and liquid eyeliner handy is a hassle-free way to look fabulous on the sand.

While it may seem tempting to invest in a few waterproof makeup products, these cosmetics typically have thick applications and can be tough to remove. Water-resistant blinc liquid eyeliner is something you can throw on in the morning, and it will stay in place even if you decide to splash around in the water or play a game of volleyball.

Wearing mascara on the beach may seem like a potential nightmare, but not with tube mascara. This product will encase your lashes in tubes and won't run, smudge or crease throughout the day. Now you won't have to worry about the dreaded raccoon eye!

Whether you're hitting the beach or the boardwalk, these versatile cosmetics will keep you looking glamorous and can hold up to the heat and humidity of a tropical environment.

However, at the end of the day when it's time to hit the gym, it may take too long to remove your cosmetics. However, with water-resistant liquid eyeliner and tube mascara, you can skip this step, finish your workout and not worry about any unsightly smudges.

While you could opt for waterproof products, many of them can be extremely expensive and can go on a lot thicker than other designs. Products like blinc mascara will encase your lashes in tubes, preventing your lashes from running, clumping or smudging throughout the day.

Since most mascara brands will start to run at the appearance of sweat, this can lead to raccoon eyes and may even start to sting. These water-resistant products can handle the rigors of your active lifestyle

With a busy schedule, a workout circuit to complete and other activities on your schedule, you don't have any time to waste removing your makeup. Thankfully, these blinc products can make your daily routine a walk in the park.

If you're one of these people and you want to fit in a quick workout before you head out on your date, you'll need a few cosmetics in your bag to put your best face on for the occasion.

After you've showered up and gotten dressed, the other ladies in the gym locker room probably wouldn't appreciate you going through a full makeup routine in front of the mirror. You can keep it simple by bringing along a lash curler and your favorite brand of mascara - be sure to use the curler first to achieve the perfect shape before you apply your makeup.

Your cheeks will probably be a bit rosy after hitting the gym, so skip the blush and use your bit of color elsewhere. Red lipstick may be a bit much for a first date, so go with a playful color like tangerine or pale pink to add a bit of visual interest to your look.

These quick additions will allow you to get everything you need to do in a given day, while still looking chic for your big date!

Wrong! Just because your mornings are a lot more hectic doesn't mean you have to give up on looking fabulous. Even if you've been up all night changing diapers and warming bottles, if you have five minutes and a good lash curler, you can look your best for the rest of the day, according to the Orange County Register.

First, using a neutral shade, apply a coat of shadow to your lid. This will help brighten up those peepers and reduce the tired redness that comes from a lack of sleep. Next, grab your favorite lash curler and use liberally. Doing so will make your eyes appear more open than they may actually be.

Managing kids is seldom a walk in the park, but if you can walk out the door looking your best, you may have the confidence needed to make it through the rest of the day unscathed. It might not be the most elaborate getup in the world, but it'll definitely hold its own in a pinch.

However, leaving your regular tube mascara, liquid eyeliner and other makeup on while you sleep has many negative effects on your skin.

The ingredients in your normal makeup can mix with your skin's natural oils, as well as any dirt and grime that you managed to accumulate throughout the day. This combination can get clogged in your pores, creating unsightly blemishes and irritation. Luckily, blinc's cosmetic products don't have any of these effects because they're specially formulated not to clash with your skin.

Your blinc tube mascara and liquid eyeliner are formulated to last all day and into the night, and they're safe to sleep in if you ever forget to take off your makeup. However, you shouldn't leave blinc makeup on every night.

If you're really short on time at night but still want to have a clean face, all it takes is a quick swipe of a cleansing towelette to get rid of dirt. Keep a pack by your bedside table just in case you ever find yourself in bed with makeup on.

With so many holiday parties on the horizon, chances are one probably falls on a date when you're busy during the day and won't have time to shower before the event.

If that's the case, it's easy to take your makeup from day to night. The Beauty Department suggests assessing your makeup situation in the mirror, then deciding what needs to be fixed. Your lash primer and tube mascara should be intact, but your foundation and lipstick may have strayed throughout the day.

Reapply concealer on any spots which have resurfaced, then apply a powdered foundation to combat any shine you may have developed. Darken up your eye makeup with a bit more eyeshadow and a liquid eyeliner, then smooth on a bit of blush. Apply a bolder shade of lipstick and you'll be ready for a night out!

We've all been there, and it's really no fun to dread curling your lashes - especially since it makes such a huge difference in the appearance of your eyes!

To top it off, regular lash curlers take a lot of squeezing to get the right amount of curl. You usually have to start at the base of your lashes, squeeze for a few seconds, then move to the middle, squeeze, then do one more squeeze near the top. Enough already!

A heated eyelash curler from blinc delivers just the right amount of heat to give your lashes a long-lasting curl. It works in seconds, so you won't have to spend precious minutes in the morning trying to achieve the perfect curl.

Once your lashes are curled and fabulous, a bit of lash primer and tube mascara will ensure that your eyes look gorgeous, wide awake and flawless all day long. Why would you ever want to go back to that awful pincher?

A couple of good skincare products can drastically reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles around your eyes, so invest in some to use on a daily basis after cleansing. An anti-aging moisturizer is a good base to apply before your makeup during the day, but you'll also need a product to use each night that will help make your skin flawless in the morning.

Invest in an eye cream with plenty of antioxidants and brightening ingredients. Apply it before you go to bed, then use a primer on top so the active ingredients will penetrate and be sealed in, working their magic while you sleep. You'll wake up with a face that's ready to support your eye makeup, so using your heated lash curler, eyeshadow and tube mascara will produce fabulous results.

Whether it's in a prominent spot on your forehead or nestled into the crook of your nose, blemishes like these can ruin the effect of your favorite eye makeup products, like tube mascara and liquid eyeliner. Your eyes will be drawn to your zit - not your peepers, but luckily there's one tip that can help.

Spot-treating acne with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid products is your best bet, but doing so will take one or two days before you start noticing results, reports Allure Magazine. Instead of waiting for blemishes to pop up before you treat them, you should be taking preventative measures.

Even if you don't see any pimples at the moment, you should be using an anti-acne cream and face wash if you know you're prone to them. A thin layer over the areas where zits typically show up is all you need. Keep in mind that some of these products can be drying, so it's best to follow up with an oil-free moisturizer. After a few weeks, you should be able to enjoy your favorite blinc cosmetics on a clean slate!

They're practically gurus who understand everything there is to know about the latest beauty products and clothing. But does your fashionista friend have a heated eyelash curler?

Eyelashes that aren't curled act like a curtain in front of your eyes, which doesn't do you any good when you're trying to show off your gorgeous pair.

A blinc heated lash curler is the perfect gift that will make her eyes look wide awake and brighter.

She'll be awestruck by the results.

Instead of relying on another gift card this season, get your trendy friend a blinc heated lash curler to update her look. She'll definitely thank you for it!

Whether you blame it on technology (why didn't your alarm go off?) or yourself (did you really need that extra drink last night?), sometimes waking up late is inevitable. Before you resign yourself to a day of unwashed hair and sloppy makeup, use these tips to cut down on your beauty product application time.

1. Skip moisturizer and foundation. Instead of taking the time to smooth on moisturizer and impeccably blend your foundation, use a tinted moisturizer or BB cream. You'll have coverage and hydration in one, and there's no blending required.

2. Simplify your eye makeup. A blinc heated eyelash curler is quick and easy to use, and it'll give your fringe lasting curve that will make your eyes appear larger. A touch of tube mascara will lengthen and define your lashes, and you won't have to worry about re-applying. That's all it takes!

3. Use a lip and cheek stain. One product can define your cheekbones and brighten up your pout, giving you a fresher face in no time at all. A couple of swipes and a bit of blending with your fingers is all you need!

However, a tried-and-true ponytail is a sure way to show off your carefully applied liquid eyeliners and tube mascaras. Not to mention, they're super easy to create!

BellaSugar.com recommends finding an angle that will complement your bone structure. Simply pull your hair back as usual, but before securing the elastic, use your hand to follow the angle of your cheekbone in a straight line all the way to the back of your head. This should give you the perfect ponytail height to enhance your features.

To complement the ponytail, you might want to think about creating a winged-out liquid eyeliner look to further define the angle and play up the almond shape of your eyes. A thin line along your upper lash line that's extended a bit past the outer corners is all you need. Finish with two coats of tube mascara, and you'll see how great you can look in a ponytail!

The source reports that doing so will stimulate more blood flow to the area, restoring nutrients and bringing back your natural glow.

After you've spent the time giving your face a bit of TLC, you won't have to struggle to get good results from your makeup. Your favorite blinc tube mascara and liquid eyeliner will help further improve your look by defining your eyes and making them appear wider and more awake. You'll never have to worry about looking tired in the morning again!

<![CDATA[Junk food: your skin's sneaky enemy]]> Wed, 05 Feb 2014 14:25:29 +0000 raveinfo junk+food+like+chips+and+cookies+might+be+responsible+for+those+breakouts_3356_800769993_0_0_14005491_300It's hard not to look fabulous when you're wearing the season's hottest new lipstick, liquid eyeliner and tube mascara fashions. Except, of course, when you have acne that just won't leave you alone. If you've tried seemingly everything to clear up your face and are still experiencing frequent zits, perhaps it's your diet that's behind the issue.

A new study in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology found that those who eat more processed carbs (like those found in junk food like chips, snacks and candy) break out more than those who eat foods that are high in protein and whole grains.

"High-glycemic foods cause your blood sugar to rise, triggering a surge of insulin. The insulin stimulates oil-producing hormones called androgens, leaving you with pimples," one dermatologist told Allure Magazine.

If you're guilty of indulging in these types of foods on a regular basis, you might be better off cutting them out of your diet. According to the news source, your acne could clear up in about six weeks once you stop eating these unhealthy foods. Then, your face, with its tube mascara and liquid eyeliners from blinc, will look stunning once again!

<![CDATA[Are your wrinkles the result of your habits?]]> Mon, 03 Feb 2014 14:29:48 +0000 raveinfo sunglasses+can+help+you+avoid+squinting+which+could+lead+to+wrinkles_3356_800770001_0_0_14056489_300It's natural for skin to lose some of its elasticity and brightness as we age, but there are a lot of ways you can prevent and even reverse the signs of aging. One of the best ways is to use beauty products with plenty of potent ingredients like antioxidants, collagen and retinol, but before you pick these up, it's important to make sure your habits aren't what's causing your fine lines and wrinkles.

If you've been noticing crow's feet and fine lines around your eyes that have been making your tube mascara and liquid eyeliner fall flat, it might be because you're squinting your eyes a lot.

"Muscle contractions in the face cause the skin lying over them to be pushed, pulled and scrunched," one dermatologist told Allure Magazine. "Many lines in the upper part of the face are caused by these multiple repetitive movements."

If you think this type of movement might be responsible for those unsightly wrinkles, it's time to take action. Pick up a fashionable pair of sunglasses that cover your entire eye area so you're not struggling to see in the sun, and avoid reading when you don't have bright light - otherwise you might find yourself squinting to see the words on the page, reports the news source.

<![CDATA[Are cigarettes ruining your complexion?]]> Sat, 01 Feb 2014 14:32:43 +0000 raveinfo are+cigarettes+responsible+for+your+lackluster+complexion_3356_800770007_0_0_14009764_300To ensure that your tube mascara and liquid eyeliner looks fresh and pretty every time you put them on, it's important to take good care of your complexion. That means washing your face twice a day, exfoliating, moisturizing and using anti-aging skincare products. But it also means not smoking cigarettes!

"Every time you take a puff, you're inhaling toxins, which induce free-radical damage - that means wrinkles and sagging over time - and constricting blood flow, which makes skin sallow," one dermatologist told Allure Magazine.

Even the occasional cigarette can have devastating effects on your skin, so it's best to quit them altogether to avoid making your skin appear dull, lifeless and full of fine lines and wrinkles.

According to the news source, you could see results just months after you quit the habit - increased blood flow to your face will give you a brighter complexion and eventually you'll have less fine lines and improved firmness.

After you've successfully quit, you shouldn't have a problem rocking your favorite blinc liquid eyeliner and tube mascara!

<![CDATA[Is your 'do causing those breakouts?]]> Wed, 29 Jan 2014 14:35:17 +0000 raveinfo are+your+bangs+causing+those+breakouts_3356_800770016_0_0_14040914_300Bangs are all the rage lately, and they're a good way to call attention to your liquid eyeliner and tube mascara, as they typically fall right around your eyes. However, if you've been noticing increased acne on your forehead, your stylish 'do might be to blame.

According to Allure Magazine, hair that's touching your face can transfer oils from your scalp onto your delicate facial skin, often clogging pores and causing pimples. If you're using styling products like mousse, gel or hairspray, the effects are probably multiplied.

To clear up the problem, be sure to wash your hair frequently and use oil- and silicone-free haircare products, recommends the news source. This should help cut down on the pore-clogging effects, but you may also want to wear a different style for a while to give your forehead a break.

Clipping back your bangs can open up your face and still draw plenty of attention to your fabulous liquid eyeliner and tube mascara. Until the acne's cleared up, be sure to use a green-tinted concealer underneath your foundation to cover up those blemishes.

The best part is that she won't have to worry about spending time scrubbing them off, either, because the formulas slide right off with a bit of pressure and warm water.

Think your mom would appreciate more luxurious lashes? The Long Lash eyelash enhancer can give her thicker, longer lashes in just two to four weeks. She'll notice healthier, conditioned lashes that will definitely boost her appearance. Of course, a heated eyelash curler might also be an appropriate gift, as it will help Mom's eyes look larger and more defined. Your mother is sure to love these products - just as much as you do!

If you're always stressing out about your performance at work, maintaining relationships and dealing with everything else life throws at you, your skin might be paying for it. Stress can lead to a variety of health issues, and clogged pores and blemishes are just some of them, reports Allure Magazine.

If you've noticed extra zits on your face lately that have been distracting peoples' attention from your fabulous liquid eyeliner and tube mascara, it's probably time to find ways to relax. First off, have you ever taken a mental health day? That might be one way to calm down - not only will you be able to focus on yourself for once, but you can use the free time to take care of those errands you never seem to get a chance to tackle.

If that's not an option, try turning your bathroom into a spa for a night. After work, come home and turn on the bath, filling it up with some aromatherapy oils or bath salts that will lift your spirits and soothe your body. A few candles can add to the ambiance, and of course, feel free to pamper yourself with a mani/pedi, face mask or body exfoliant. You'll emerge a lot more calm - and your skin will be a clean slate for your favorite blinc products!

These cosmetics keep your face looking beautiful, even when you work up a sweat - and exercise is something that even celebrities value.

Pop singing sensation Miley Cyrus can say a lot about the value of working out, according to Celebuzz.com. Recently, the news source reported that the young star was seen leaving her weekend workout in a belly-revealing top that showed off her abs.

Cyrus is allegedly adhering to a gluten-free diet, which may contribute to her lovely figure.

If you're afraid of hitting the gym because you fear running into someone you know with sweat running down your face, have no fear! Blinc's cosmetics can keep you looking beautiful as you pump some iron.

The liquid eyeliner and tube mascara are both designed to stay on through sweat, and they can easily be washed away at the end of the day with a bit of warm water. You don't have to be a celebrity to look hot while you go for a run on a treadmill!

But what about the rest of your makeup? If you go too heavy-handed with the application, you might end up looking a lot different in a photo than you did in the mirror. Here are a few ways you can ensure a flattering shot.

1. Go sheer on the lips. According to Allure Magazine, too much color or shine can look jarring with a camera's flash. Sheer formulas give you the perfect hint of both.

2. Use blush to avoid looking flat. A touch of creamy blush on the apples of your cheeks, along with a bit of highlighter along the cheekbones, gives your face dimension.

3. Translucent powder. Powder can get rid of excess oil, which makes your face look greasy in pictures, but a tinted powder will show up. Dust a translucent formula over your face instead, which will remain invisible.

Allure Magazine recently reported that Jessica Ennis, a track and field star who will be competing in this year's London 2012 Olympics, wears a full face of makeup when she competes - tube mascara, liquid eyeliner and all!

"I definitely think if I feel I look good, it makes me feel more confident," she told The Daily Mail. If you're in the same boat, you might be wondering about the best types of products to use while you're working your butt off during a grueling workout.

First, Allure recommends using a gentle moisturizer to act as a barrier that will prevent your skin from stinging from the sweat. Next, use a water-based foundation or mineral makeup to even out your complexion - oilier formulas can clog pores.

Finally, use blinc's tube mascara and liquid eyeliners to amp up your eyes and give you that last shot of confidence. Not only will they enhance your best features, but they won't run or smudge - no matter how much sweat's dripping down your face!

However, not all makeup has such revolutionary formulas. If you're always struggling to make your lips look as great as your eyes, there are ways you can help that lipstick keep up with your eye makeup.

First, Allure Magazine recommends prepping your lips by buffing them with a wet washcloth or lip scrub. Use a clear, moisturizing lip balm, let it sink in for about five minutes, then use a tissue to blot it off. Your lipstick will stick better to a smooth, hydrated surface.

Now, use a pencil that matches your lipstick color. This will provide an extra layer of pigment and it will prevent your lipstick from going outside of your natural lip line. Apply your lipstick straight from the tube, then blot with a tissue before adding another layer.

It's a good idea to choose highly-pigmented lipsticks with shine that's from shimmer - not texture. These types are longer lasting. Finish up with a light dusting of translucent face powder and your lips should be all set to complement your liquid eyeliner and tube mascara all day or night!

In fact, many Hollywood A-listers can't wait to exercise in between work, even right after giving birth!

Singer and actress Hilary Duff recently brought a new little boy into the world, Luca, and has since started working out to shed her baby weight, according to StarPulse.com. Duff has been the subject of criticism since becoming a new mom - many people have commented on her weight, but the star isn't letting it get her down.

Instead, Duff has enrolled in classes and started regularly visiting the gym to get back to her pre-baby weight. The critics might have been just what she needed to motivate herself to hit the treadmill!

If you want to look hot while sweating it out at the gym, make sure you have blinc's liquid eyeliner and tube mascara on hand. These cosmetics are composed of a no-run formula which is guaranteed to stay in place, even when you start to perspire.

Hot weather can really put a damper on your makeup application, but luckily there are a few ways you can ensure that your look stays melt-proof - especially using blinc cosmetics.

Instead of a thick foundation, your best bet is to choose a tinted moisturizer, which will not only give your skin hydration, but will cover up any blemishes and give you an even complexion. It's lightweight and should sink right into your skin. If you tend to get a bit shiny over the course of the day, a bit of translucent powder will absorb the excess oil.

For lips and cheeks, a stain is all you need. These are super lightweight and will give you color without any of the heavy creaminess that's typically associated with blush and lipstick. Use the same stain on your lips and cheeks for a chic monotone look.

Finally, use blinc's liquid eyeliner and tube mascara for never-fail eye makeup that won't let you down in the heat. The unique formulas won't budge throughout the day - no matter what you're doing or how much you sweat.

Despite the many product removers out there, doesn't it always seem like you still have traces of mascara and liquid eyeliner on your eyes?

Taking your makeup off at night is the best way to ensure a healthy, smooth complexion, but some formulas are resistant to budge. If you're using a regular waterproof mascara - you can pretty much give up on getting rid of all traces of it - at least for the next few days.

However, if you switch to blinc cosmetics, you won't have to fight with that cleansing wipe or cotton ball. The tube mascaras, liquid eyeliners and eyebrow mousse can all be easily removed with just a bit of warm water and light pressure. Plus, they won't smudge or run while you're getting on with your business - they'll only come off when you want them to!

Next time you consider putting on your average makeup, ask yourself whether you want to wake up the next morning with smudgy raccoon eyes. If the answer's no, stick with blinc!

However, the extreme heat of the studio (which is typically around 105 degrees) can do a number on your makeup if you're not using the right products. Here's how to ensure your look stays put.

If you're the type of woman who doesn't like to go anywhere without a bit of product to define your features, you'll need cosmetics that can last as long as you do. Because you'll be sweating a lot, waterproof eye makeup is necessary to ensure that you don't end up with black rivulets streaming down your face.

Use blinc's liquid eyeliners and tube mascaras to achieve the look you desire without having to worry about whether your appearance will last until the last posture of class. You can use the liquid eyeliner to define your eyes and make them look bolder, while the tube mascara can amp up your fringe. After all, you never know who might show up to your next session!

It's an unfortunate side effect, but luckily it's easy to fix. While you may think that thickening mascaras will provide your lashes with the extra volume they need, it's actually lengthening tube mascara that you should be looking for.

"Your lashes can't support the extra weight [of thickening mascara]," one makeup artist told Allure Magazine. "Heavy formulas flatten the lashes." Instead of piling on the mascara in an effort to volumize your thinning lashes, it's better to go with extra length.

Aside from using blinc's long lash eye lash enhancer to naturally build up the length of your fringe, you should be using lash primer and tube mascara to enhance the effect. After curling your lashes with a heated eyelash curler, apply the lash primer to bulk up your lashes and give your tube mascara an added boost. Then, apply two coats of the mascara, making sure to thoroughly coat each individual lash.

This should help to make your lashes look more substantial without weighing them down!

One woman who can vouch for this is celebrity chef, Rachael Ray. Yahoo! reports that the 43-year-old chef recently confessed that she didn't start working out until three years ago. Ray used to go by the standard belief that "eating in moderation" is the key to looking good, but she has since discovered what exercise can do for your bod.

"I didn't start meaningful exercise until I was 40 and I feel really guilty about that now that I'm a few years into running six days a week. I really feel like I missed out a lot in my adult years," Ray told the news source. "I wish I had those other 25 years back between when you're forced to go to gym class and where I'm at now."

If you want to look flawless while working out, consider applying blinc's tube mascara and liquid eyeliner before heading to the gym. The no-run formula in these cosmetics can help you look as beautiful as Ray on any given day.

<![CDATA[Blending your work makeup into a glamorous evening ensemble ]]> Fri, 15 Nov 2013 12:10:40 +0000 raveinfo With the holiday party season on the horizon, many ladies will be going straight from the office to myriad formal events, and that could be a detriment to their makeup! However, according to Access Hollywood, there are a number of ways to use tube mascara and liquid eyeliner to your advantage to create a fabulous look.

When you're on the way to your formal event, be sure to give your eyes a quick dose of glittering shimmer - this can go directly over the top of your existing eyeshadow and give your eyes a luminous glow. Alternatively, you can remove your current makeup and use a heated eyelash curler to revitalize your lashes for the party.

If you're not a fan of red lipstick, opt for a shade of pale pink during the day. When the soiree rolls around, you can easily put on a shade of bright rose or lavender that will blend beautifully with your daytime color.

If you're looking for a touch of definition on your eyes after a long day, try blinc Eyeliner. This handy product will provide a water-resistant layer of color that won't smudge, run or crease throughout the night's activities.

<![CDATA[Active women can turn to waterproof mascara in the summer months ]]> Mon, 20 May 2013 12:22:46 +0000 raveinfo Most of us love long, lazy days on the beach and sultry nights spent dining al fresco, but the heat and the humidity of the summer months can sometimes cause our makeup to run.

Makeup artist to the stars, Kimara Ahnert, recently dished a few tips to Access Hollywood to help women avoid the unflattering effects of blurry makeup.

Ahnert suggested that active women who want to look fresh despite their busy schedules and the balmy weather can turn to waterproof mascara for a pristine appearance.

"Waterproof mascara, an old standby, has an added polymer that makes the formula stick to your lashes and resistant to water," she told the news provider. "To avoid mascara smudges on your eyelids, apply a dusting of pressed powder on your brow bone."

The expert, who has worked with the likes of Brooke Shields, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Gwyneth Paltrow, also suggested using oil-free foundations and concealer during the warm months.

Women who desire the hold of waterproof mascara, but with easy removal can turn to tubing mascara, which requires no makeup remover and slide off with simply water and gentle pressure.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19811882-ADNFCR

<![CDATA[Sunglasses and tubing mascara may be beneficial to eye health ]]> Tue, 23 Apr 2013 11:06:27 +0000 raveinfo As the warm weather approaches, women who like to soak up the sun are likely to be shopping for the perfect pair of shades. Whether they don something stylish and trendy, or a pair of classic dark frames, most know that sunglasses are an accessory that enhances your health as much as your ensemble.

Because exposure to UV rays can lead to glaucoma, cataracts and age-related macular degeneration, the American Optometric Association (AOA) suggests purchasing sunglasses that block at least 99 percent of both UVA and UVB rays, screen out 75 to 90 percent of visible light and have a gray tint for proper color recognition.

So, the next time you hit the beach or spend an afternoon poolside, be sure to throw on some sunglasses.

In addition to shades, in the summer months, choosing the right eye makeup may be beneficial to one's eye health and comfort.

Women who live an active lifestyle and spend time outdoors are likely to benefit from tubing mascara, which will not flake off and irritate their eyes the way that some traditional mascaras might.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19823314-ADNFCR

<![CDATA[Active women can make high-quality products part of their summer beauty routine ]]> Tue, 23 Apr 2013 11:02:47 +0000 raveinfo Though the summer is supposed to be a time for rest and relaxation, active women often spend the warm months dashing from the office to after-work cocktails, or heading to the gym so they look svelte on the beach.

But, even though your schedule is packed, it's important to take time to choose beauty products that will stand up to the heat (so that you're not constantly reapplying) and also be beneficial to your skin.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends wearing a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher whenever you're venturing out under the sun's rays between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Many facial moisturizers contain a strong SPF and will nourish your skin while guarding against skin damage.

Those who have sensitive eyes who are searching for mascara that will stay put all day and won't irritate their peepers could try tubing mascara. The acrylic-based formula will not flake, smear or smudge and won't require touch-ups throughout your busy day.

<![CDATA[How to look fantastic after a trip to the gym ]]> Tue, 23 Apr 2013 11:00:53 +0000 raveinfo With the abundance of meetings at the office and after-work appointments, many women are surprised and thankful when they can squeeze in a trip to the gym. Sometimes, however, exercising falls before an important occasion for which you must look polished and put together.

Instead of forgoing your daily workout for fear of compromising your flawlessly made-up face, employ a few insider tips to help you look your best when you leave the gym.

Recently, makeup artist Jemma Kidd told Allure that women don't need a full face of makeup after a workout, as they will likely have a gorgeous natural glow. Instead of covering it up, a mineral powder foundation will help hide any imperfections, and mascara, a tinted lip gloss and a neutral shade of eyeshadow will create a polished look.

However, ladies who frequently visit the gym during a hectically scheduled day may rarely have time to redo their makeup post-workout. Busy gals should use acrylic-based tubing mascara. After it's applied in the morning, the mascara won't smudge, flake or smear - even during a sweaty trip to the gym!ADNFCR-3356-ID-19933966-ADNFCR

Unfortunately, smudged lashes may be one of the most common problems that ladies encounter. Luckily, there are a few tips to help keep your makeup on your lashes, and not below your eyes.

According to Oprah.com, industry expert Ross Burton reminds women to coat their lashes from the base upward, as only applying mascara to the ends can weigh lashes down and deposit product onto the skin.

He also recommends dusting a bit of loose powder on lashes, as the particles will help the fringe hold onto the mascara.

Finally, women who find themselves constantly looking like a raccoon may want to try an acrylic-based tubing formula like blinc Mascara (formerly blinc Kiss Me Mascara). Instead of painting lashes, which can lead to runny eye makeup, this innovative product forms small tubes around each lash that won't flake or smudge.

But unlike typical water-resistant formulas that can be hard to take off, blinc Mascara is easy to remove - the tubes slide off with gentle pressure and warm water.

Luckily, there are a multitude of remedies that can help reduce the appearance of swollen peepers.

According to Allure magazine, before heading out of the house, place something cool on your eyes, such as cucumber slices, gel eye pads or chilled, damp tea bags, as the temperature constricts blood vessels. Additionally, apply an eye cream with caffeine or vitamin K to strengthen vessels.

Makeup can also be used to hide the signs of puffy eyes. The news source recommends brushing tawny eyeshadow along the lower lash lines, curling your top lashes and applying a coat of mascara, as this will help eyes to appear wider and more awake.

If you suffer from allergies, you may want to be particularly careful when selecting eye makeup, as your eyes may be more prone to irritation throughout the day. A water-resistant tubing mascara will define your lashes, and you won't have to worry about the makeup smudging or flaking when your eyes tear up.

While we may not all look like one of the flawless females, Brooklyn Decker, the most recent woman to grace the publication's cover, recently shared some inside information about looking great on the beach with StyleList.com.

"Every woman - no matter her shape or size - has insecurities, especially when it comes to being in a bathing suit on the beach," Decker told the news source. "But I'm sure you've seen it - if a woman looks confident, it's instantly sexy, no matter what her shape or age."

One of Decker's necessities is a great razor to keep her body smooth and sleek. The blonde beauty told the news source that she always carries a razor with her. The other two products that Decker can't live without? Lip balm and waterproof mascara.

Women who lead an active lifestyle like Decker may want to use an acrylic-based tubing mascara. The water-resistant formula won't smear or flake, whether you are splashing around in the waves or running to work during a rain shower.
