    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.

  • Home remedies to make lashes shiny and thick

    While not everyone may have been blessed with luscious, long lashes, there are a few homemade remedies that may help to make lashes appear shiny and full.

    Various substances such as olive oil, castor oil, sweet almonds and vaseline can nurture lashes when applied regularly, according to ArabTimesOnline.com. To try this at home, women can use an eyelash brush or a mascara brush to coat their lashes in the product and leave it on overnight.

    A woman's diet can also affect the thickness of her lashes as a lack of protein can inhibit lash growth, according to LashGrowth.net.

    Proper makeup removal is also important. Ladies are advised to do so carefully without applying too much pressure and instead use circular movements, the website advises. Women can use a natural makeup remover such as black or chamomile tea to wash their faces free of cosmetics.

    In order to define their eyes, ladies may want to try blinc's Long Lash, which can give them a natural, full eyelash look.

  • How to properly apply eyeliner

    Eyeliner can be one of the most difficult products to apply as it requires a steady hand and a lot of practice. However, learning how to correctly put on the product may be worth the time, as eyeliner can help define eyes and add intensity.

    Because liner can smudge easily and eyelids tend to be greasy, Rae Morris, celebrity makeup artist, suggests ridding eyelids of oily residue with an alcohol-free makeup remover prior to application and dusting lids with powder that will absorb oils throughout the day.

    Before applying eyeliner, Morris recommends putting pencils in the freezer for 30 seconds. Ladies can then remove the chilled liner and sharpen the pencil.

    Those who have a hard time creating a steady line can use a piece of scotch tape as a stencil. As a general rule of thumb, eyeliner on top of the lid should be three times thicker than the bottom line.

    Morris told the news source that women who have rounder eyes can create an almond-shape around their eyes with a powder or gel liner. However, those with elongated or oval shaped eyes may find that pencils and pens are easier to use.

    To complete eye definition women can apply acrylic-based tubing mascara that matches their chosen eyeliner color.

  • How to replicate Cleopatra's eye makeup

    how+to+replicate+cleopatra+s+eye+makeup_3356_800205704_0_0_7057644_300With Halloween a few days away, many people are working hard to put the last minute touches on their costumes. Women who are still trying to figure out who (or what) they should dress up as may want to channel their inner queen and become Cleopatra.

    However, the most important component to making a fantastic Cleopatra costume may lie within recreating her dramatic eye makeup. Luckily, with a bit of expert advice, this won't be hard to do.

    "Use a black liquid liner with a wide felt tip - this will give you a nice thick line without having to paint your lash line over and over and over again," Allure magazine reports.

    Gals should begin by lining their eyes completely, going over the outline to make the makeup as dark and dramatic as possible. To capture Cleopatra's spectacular look, don't forget the cat-eye detailing.

    "Extend the line from the outer corner of the eye directly across until it reaches the outer tip of your eyebrow," the news source suggests.

    Finally, brush on multiple coats of black mascara. Elizabeth Taylor, who portrayed the famous queen, was blessed with a double set of lashes. While you may not boast such fringe, mascara can help your lashes look especially thick and full.
