Eye Makeup Beauty Tips

  • Stripy eyelids: a trend worth trying

    this+stripy+effect+might+be+just+what+your+look+needs_3356_800762293_0_0_14056910_300If you're looking for ways to spice up your eye makeup routine, you might want to pay attention to what's been happening on the fashion runways. If you saw Peter Som's Spring 2012 show, you probably remember how the models had bold stripes of eyeliner in the creases of their eyelids. If you're curious about how it would look on you, Glamour Magazine's beauty blog broke it down into a few simple steps.

    While you should use a thin line of liquid eyeliner along your upper lash line, you should use a pencil eyeliner to create the stripe in your creases, as it can easily be softened. Just use a brown or plum shade to create a banana-shaped horizontal slash slightly above each crease. This will highlight the shape of your eye.

    If it looks a bit too harsh, soften it up with a blending brush. You might want to add a bit of shimmery shadow on your lids and under your eyebrows for a bit more contrast. After that, just use a heated eyelash curler to give your lashes lasting curve, then apply two coats of blinc's tube mascara for longer, thicker lashes. Think you'll give it a try?

  • A foolproof way to get a straight liquid eyeliner application

    applying+liquid+eyeliner+is+easier+with+these+tips_3356_800762284_0_0_14052084_300While liquid eyeliner is great for thickening up your lash line and framing your gorgeous peepers, it's sometimes hard to apply if you don't have a steady hand. Instead of relying on Scotch tape or a friend to get it right, Marie Claire Magazine has a foolproof method for creating a perfectly straight line.

    First, you shouldn't be closing your eye when you apply liquid eyeliner to the upper lash line. This can make the line look wobbly and uneven. Also, it's not a good idea to try drawing a line all at once. Instead, try making three short dashes: one at your inner corner, one above your pupil and the other at your outer corner. Then, just connect the dots.

    If you ever make a small mistake with your liquid eyeliner, a cotton swab dipped in warm water or a bit of makeup remover can help. Just use it to sweep along the line to clean up any stray product. You could even use it to smear the liquid eyeliner a bit before it dries to create a smoky effect.

  • Creating a professional look for the office

    creating+a+professional+look+for+the+office_3356_800759987_0_0_7052153_300You might have all of the liquid eyeliner, tube mascara and concealer you need to create a professional look, but it can be tough to pull it altogether if you're not used to an office job. Here are a few tips on how to look stunning as soon as you walk through the door.

    1. Think light and low-maintenance.

    MakeupAndBeautyBlog.com reports that when you're at work for eight hours, it's best to go with makeup that gives you little hassle - after all, you don't have the time to fuss over your looks. Blinc's tube mascara and liquid eyeliner are perfect for all-day wear. They won't run or smudge over time, even throughout a long afternoon at the office.

    2. Avoid distracting colors.

    Your favorite lipstick might be hot pink, but that hue isn't exactly office appropriate. Try to stick to neutrals or colors that are not too distracting to maintain a professional appearance.

    3. Steer clear of shimmer.

    There's nothing like showing off a radiant glow under the summer sun, but shimmery powders, bronzers and foundation can result in a less-than-glamorous look under dingy fluorescent lights.

  • How to incorporate bronzer into your summer makeup routine

    the+right+bronzer+can+boost+your+complexion+s+glow+and+set+off+your+eye+makeup_3356_800764361_0_0_14005514_300While blinc's tube mascara and liquid eyeliner is enough to spruce up your eye makeup routine for the summer, you might be looking for another way to ensure an attention-grabbing effect. After curling your lashes with a heated eyelash curler and applying eye makeup, Allure Magazine recommends using a bit of bronzer to enhance your glow.

    Bronzer can make your complexion look naturally healthier, without requiring much commitment. However, it can be a tricky product to master - unlike eyebrow mousse, tube mascaras and liquid eyeliners, the wrong application of bronzer can make you look much too dark and unnatural. Luckily, there are plenty of ways you can make sure you're doing it right every time.

    First, pick the right color. Allure suggests tan or honey-colored bronzer for pale skin, terra cotta and medium browns for tan skin and copper bronzer for dark skin. Apply the bronzer only to the areas of your face where sunlight naturally hits, and put it on in natural light so you're not applying too much without knowing it. Afterward, highlight the areas on top of the bronzed zones to avoid a flat face.

  • Winged-out liquid eyeliner complements Art Deco jewelry

    winged+out+eyeliner+can+complement+art+deco+jewelry_3356_800766834_0_0_14005513_300Have you ever thought to match your makeup with your jewelry? More than likely, it's your clothes that end up pairing nicely with your choice of jewels, but The Beauty Department points out that tweaking your liquid eyeliner and tube mascara application to complement your Art Deco-style jewelry items (which are on-trend right now) is a great idea.

    Art Deco necklaces, rings and earrings often have colorblocking patterns or classic color combinations like black and white, as well as plenty of geometric shapes. As such, winged-out liquid eyeliner is the perfect accompaniment because it's just as retro as the jewelry's characteristics.

    After curling your lashes with a heated eyelash curler, apply your tube mascara as usual and wing out your liquid eyeliner. Then, use blinc's eyebrow mousse to fill in your brows so they appear thick - this will create a flattering frame for your eyes and the boldness will mimic the jewelry.

    While you don't have to go any further to match your jewelry and makeup, it might be fun to pair the two with an outfit that's full of clean lines and retro cuts that speak to eras gone by.
