  • Allure offers the secret to applying liquid eyeliner

    Many women love the look of liquid eyeliner, but the product can easily appear messy when not correctly applied. However, by using the right technique, it's possible to achieve the results you want.

    According to Allure.com, the benefits of precisely applied liner include eyes that look larger, eyelashes that appear longer and an overall more polished appearance.

    To get all those perks with liquid products, there are a few things to keep in mind.

    The website recommends choosing a high-quality product to begin with, and suggests choosing a fast-drying formula to avoid blurry lines, and a rich and flattering color.

    Next the publication suggests lining your upper lash line with a pencil to provide yourself with a guide.

    Finally, if you do make a mistake with liquid liner, use a cotton swab dipped in facial moisturizer to fix small smears without removing all of the makeup.

    After your eyeliner is impeccable, consider applying acrylic-based tubing mascara to complete the clean look. For a dramatic impact, blue or green water-resistant mascara might be ideal. ADNFCR-3356-ID-19878134-ADNFCR

  • Gossip Girls step out in Paris in edgy eye makeup

    In the summertime, many women prefer lighter-colored cosmetics that look natural. However, to prevent your fresh-faced approach from becoming ho-hum, you could try one the season's latest makeup trends and wear two different eye shadow shades at the same time - one on your top lid and one on your bottom.

    According to Glamour.com, two of the cast members from the hit CW's hit show, Gossip Girl, recently stepped out sporting the trend at a Chanel fashion show in Paris.

    Blake Lively and Leighton Meester both looked fantastic in their two-tone eye makeup, though Lively wore two similar golden shades, and Meester chose a copper color on her bottom lid and a gray tone above her lash line.

    Those who try out the trendy look could swipe on a tinted tubing mascara for added polish.

  • The trick to flawlessly applying mascara

    We've all been there. Your lashes look perfect, but a few smudges of mascara have found their way onto your upper lids. Do you scrap the impeccable application and take it all off, or spend the day with a blotchy lash line?

    Luckily, those who know a few expert tricks will be able to quickly apply mascara cleanly and effortlessly.

    Makeup artist Pat McGrath suggested to Allure magazine that when swiping on the product, it's best to hold your mirror just below eye level, so that your gaze is downward and your eyes are partially closed.

    Brush the mascara wand through your lashes, and pause for a moment while the product dries, she added. This will prevent the product from making its way onto your lid.

    If some of the mascara does smear, apply facial moisturizer on a cotton swab and dab at the offending splotches.

    Using an acrylic-based tubing mascara, like Blinc water-resistant mascara, may make it easier to create a flawless finish. The product won't smear, smudge or clump, and will create a water-resistant seal around each individual lash.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19881662-ADNFCR

  • Avoid bad beach makeup with tubing mascara

    When hitting the beach, spending the afternoon at a barbecue or relaxing poolside, it's important to find products that will be long-wearing, protect against the harmful rays of the sun and not look too overdone.

    Glamour.com recently listed "Fussy-looking makeup at the beach" as one of the biggest beauty mistakes made by many women during the summer months.

    The news source recommends wearing lighter makeup with a more natural look, like blendable blush stick, for a natural-looking glow that won't appear cakey or overdone.

    But, for those who love the look or shade of their favorite powder blush, applying facial moisturizer underneath the product will help them achieve a warm look, the publication suggests.

    And, though many women feel naked without a swipe of mascara or a dab of eyeliner, during a heat wave, a lot of eye makeup can appear overdone. Instead, apply an acrylic-based tubing mascara that won't smear or melt (no matter how sweltering your environs), and go easy on the eyeliner for a fresh-faced look.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19883622-ADNFCR

  • Kristen Bell rocks a bright pink pout

    Kristen Bell has a lot on her plate. The leading lady recently appeared in When in Rome and Get Him to the Greek, and the starlet has looked fresh and on-trend at all of her red carpet appearances this season.

    Bell recently stepped out wearing a bright, bubble gum pink lip gloss, according to Glamour.com. The look drew attention to her lovely smile and white teeth.

    The bold shade has been popular on celebs and hip girls everywhere this summer, and variations of the trend can work for women of all ages.

    The starlet kept the rest of her makeup natural looking. She wore pink blush on the apples of her cheeks, and her eye makeup was clean and simple, which is important when wearing a lot of pigment on your lips.

    To mimic the precise application of her mascara and eyeliner, which made her blue eyes pop, use a soft, subtle eye liner, a neutral eye shadow and an acrylic-based tubing mascara, like blinc mascara, which won't smudge, clump or fade.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19888485-ADNFCR
