Eye Makeup Beauty Tips

  • Do you have an addiction to beauty products?

    Most women love makeup. It makes you feel pretty, helps you look polished and is just plain fun. But, could you be hooked on the contents of your makeup case?

    According to the L.A. Times, there are some women who seem to be psychologically addicted to beauty products!

    Dr Renae Reinardy, who founded the Lakeside Center for Behavioral Change in Minnesota, told the news provider that some women are so attached to their makeup that it can become a form of hoarding - they spend beyond their means and lose valuable living space to the items.

    "The million-dollar question is 'What is the function of the hoarding behavior?' because that's going to determine what kind of help people need," Reinardy told the news source. "I would look to see what's fueling the fire to buy those cosmetics."

    Though having more than two shades of lipstick isn't a sure sign of a personality disorder, streamlining your makeup kit is a great way to reduce the time it takes to get ready in the morning.

    Look for products that will be appropriate for day or night, and are long-wearing. Tubing mascara that boasts an acrylic base and is water-resistant, for example, will serve you well all year round.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19915863-ADNFCR

  • Should you extend the line of your brows?

    When it comes to eye makeup, many women focus on their eyelashes. Girls often spend hours at the cosmetics counter searching for the perfect mascara or instead cultivate a large collection of eyeshadows and highlighting powders. However, all too often, eyebrows are neglected.

    According to Glamour.com, one way to impact your look is to use products to lengthen your brows. Women can exaggerate their arches and make their bone structure appear more refined by drawing their browline out past the corners of their eyes with an eyebrow pencil or eyebrow mousse.

    Nicole Kidman rocked the look in Moulin Rouge, and singer Keri Hilson attempted the technique while making appearances on the red carpet, the publication reports.

    To ensure that you look glamorous, not cartoonish, choose your cosmetics carefully. An eyebrow mousse is ideal for this purpose, but it's important to choose a shade that will appear natural against your skin.

    Those who have light brows and fair complexions can choose a tan or taupe-tinted product, while brunettes can search for a hue that matches their natural brows and dark locks.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19921265-ADNFCR

  • Eye makeup tips for those with late-summer allergies

    With August in full swing, those who suffer from late-summer allergies are sure to be looking for ways to hide their watery, red eyes. Instead of reaching for your largest pair of sunglasses however, employ a few simple techniques to stay beautiful and bright-eyed.

    While pollen may make eyes red and puffy, applying a bit of concealer that is one shade lighter than your skin tone will help counteract redness, Allure magazine reports. Also, avoid wearing rose-colored blushes and lipsticks, as pink shades may emphasize irritated, red-rimmed eyes.

    To fake a wide-eyed look, makeup artist Tom Pecheux suggests applying a bit of shimmery gold shadow to the inside corner of your eyes. "It makes eyes look wide open and beautiful in the light," he told the news source.

    However, since your eyes are likely to tear, and you may be inclined to rub irritated lids, the magazine recommends using a water-resistant mascara to keep your lashes looking full and impeccable.

    Acrylic-based tubing mascara forms protective seals around each lash, creating a long-lasting look that won't smudge, smear or flake, even during the height of allergy season.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19922599-ADNFCR

  • Mascara may be the key to ensuring a flawless application of liquid liner

    Liquid liner boasts a plethora of benefits. The slick formula creates a flawless streak of color that lasts longer than many other products. Whether you want to rim your lids for a smoky eye or opt for a single stripe across your lash line for a wide-eyed stare, liquid liner is the way to go.

    As great as it is, however, the product is also notorious for how tricky it can be to apply. While a steady hand is key in putting on the makeup, Allure recently let its reader in on a tip that promises to make applying liquid liner simple enough for even the most fledgling makeup artist.

    Instead of painting on the liner first, the magazine recommends applying the product after you put on a few coats of mascara. "The mascara makes your lashes thick and stiff, so they're strong enough to act as barrier that helps direct the brush," the news source reports. "You can lean on the stiff lashes as you drag the liner along the lash line."

    Selecting a high-quality mascara will help to provide a great base for your liquid liner. Acrylic-based tubing mascara coats each individual lash, creating a flawless appearance that will last from day to night.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19926412-ADNFCR

  • Taupe eyes are ideal for your next date

    a+date+night+makeup+idea+to+try+out_3356_800549617_0_0_7023443_300Though dark, smoky eyes are traditionally the go-to look for a hot date, those who prefer a more subtle approach could try out taupe lids.

    Glamour.com recently recommended the sweet and simple technique, which will complement a fresh-faced approach to makeup.

    According to the news source, a dusting of lavender and taupe-colored eyeshadow across your lids, paired with gray eyeliner and a hint of highlighter in the corners of your eyes, is a lovely look.

    The magazine suggests pairing your shimmery gaze with sheer pink lip gloss for a girl-next-door glow.

    Women who want to try the look should make sure that their mascara is also clean and simple. An acrylic-based tubing mascara may be perfect for those who like a natural look. The product won't flake and will not require touch-ups throughout the day or night, so you won't have to worry about reapplying. ADNFCR-3356-ID-19926573-ADNFCR
