Instead of defining your upper lashes, you may want to try using liquid eyeliners on your lower lash line. It's more unexpected and will give your look a fresh touch. Stars like Kim Kardashian and Zoe Saldana have been rocking the look with blue and purple liquid eyeliners, which add a fun pop of color and work with every eye shade.

Use a neutral eyeshadow color to give your eyes a bit of added depth, then apply mascara as usual to amp up your lashes. You'll notice that the new liquid eyeliner look makes your eyes trendy and glamorous.

After they've picked out the perfect dress and designed their ceremony's decor, it's time to pick a makeup ensemble! Thankfully, many of this year's trends utilize water-resistant makeup like tube mascara and embrace a natural look, according to The Plain Dealer.

"For the most part, they're [makeup artists] showing very soft, romantic looks. Very feminine." Wendy Fitos, a makeup artist at Just Browsing Skincare and Makeup Services, told the news source. "The biggest goal for brides is that they want to look good for the groom, but they want to feel like themselves."

Fitos believes that brides should choose a focal point to accentuate and keep the rest of their look neutral. For instance, if a bride chooses to wear a brilliant eyeshadow, then she should keep her lips neutral. If she's wearing a bold lip color, a touch of liquid eyeliner and tube mascara is a striking eye makeup choice.

Ultimately, it comes down to the bride's tastes and what she feels comfortable in, so don't fret! Oftentimes, a toned-down look is best and one that will allow the bride's natural beauty to shine through.

If you're a fan of pink cosmetics, there are more than a few tasteful style choices you can pair with your liquid eyeliner on the big day to wow your date, according to BoldSky.com.

Pink blush is a fabulous way to perk up your complexion before your big date.

Most importantly, make sure the proportions of your makeup are in good order. The last thing you want to do is scare away your date with tons of cosmetics, so embrace color while letting your natural complexion shine through.

<![CDATA[Makeup designer predicts the hottest trends for spring 2012 ]]> Thu, 16 May 2013 08:46:34 +0000 raveinfo makeup+designer+predicts+the+hottest+trends+for+spring+2012_3356_800702457_0_0_7023443_300With spring weather on the horizon, the deep hues of winter will finally give way to the fun and bright eye makeup hues of the coming seasons. According to DNAInfo.com, makeup designer Yuui Ogawa believes that retro looks, orange and purple hues are going to be huge in 2012.

Orange and tangerine eyeshadow and lip color isn't exactly a new phenomenon, but it should be far more common this spring. Pairing this lip color with a soft eyeshadow is a wonderful way to make a statement - just be sure to use eyeshadow primer. This can provide a solid foundation for your cosmetics to prevent them from smudging throughout the day.

Retro styles always seem to rise and fall in the trending world, but giving a classic look a bit of modern panache is always a chic choice. For instance, you can sport one of the season's hottest styles in metallic eye makeup and then pair it with matte lips or a colorful scarf to give your look a retro aesthetic.

Finally, don't underestimate just how versatile purple can be! Whether it's used as a background color for your eye makeup or used as liquid eyeliner, it can provide a welcome boost for your look.

As a result, fashionistas and celebrities alike have begun to sport subdued versions of the style that allow them to wear their favorite liquid eyeliner and skip some of the dark eyeshadow, according to Glamour.com.

McAdams started by applying tube mascara to her upper and lower lash lines to give her lashes additional volume and presence in her look. Additionally, she used a soft touch of liquid eyeliner to line the perimeter around her eyes and create more visual interest. She then used a bit of foundation on her cheeks to give her skin a fresh and dewy glow.

What really caught the attention of best-dressed lists and fashion blogs was McAdams' choice of lip color. The bright tangerine hue was unmistakably the focal point of her ensemble, combining beautifully with her baby blue cocktail dress.

A bright lip color is a chic choice for the spring, but the proportions of your makeup are even more important. Finding the right balance between the strength of your color choices and their volume can help you craft a stunning outfit.

However, if you think your liquid eyeliners could be doing more to heighten your natural beauty, you might be doing it all wrong!

There are a couple of liquid eyeliner tips you can take into consideration to make sure you apply it flawlessly every time. First, it's important to remember that you should never use liquid eyeliners on your bottom eyelid. This makeup is best used on the top lid to get the full effect - stick with a pencil on the bottom if you want further definition.

Try to apply liquid eyeliners as close to the lash line as possible, rather than using too much in an attempt to go bold. Over-application can make you look tacky and inappropriate in a formal setting.

Finally, don't skimp out and use a cheap liquid eyeliner to try to get the job done. Trust blinc's liquid eyeliners to make you look fabulous and flawless every day. This eyeliner is composed of a formula that won't run or smudge, giving you peace of mind.

If you've had the same routine for years and it isn't helping you give your eyes a bold look, you may need to tweak your method.

There are a couple of things to keep in mind when applying liquid eyeliners that can help you get that glamorous appearance in minutes. First, UnleashedBeauty.com notes that you should always apply small amounts, then gradually add more as your look comes together. Remember this rule of thumb - it can be difficult to remove liquid eyeliner once it's on, so start off small.

Next, you might want to get closer to the mirror in order to perfect your appearance. Tilt your head up as you're applying liquid eyeliner to make sure you're rounding off the edges of your eyes to your liking.

Finally, don't shy away from colored liquid eyeliners. They can help you create a bold, unique look for a fun weekend or hot date. These tips can help you revamp your makeup routine and give you a fresh appearance.

As one of the bridesmaids, you have plenty of preparations to make before you big day, but have you thought about the weather? Investing in some water-resistant products like tube mascara and liquid eyeliner may be the best way to beat the heat.

Humidity is a big factor in a tropical location, and if you've ever worn eyeshadow or foundation during a humid day, you know how quickly your makeup can run. If you're wearing eyeshadow during the ceremony, be sure to prep your skin with eyeshadow primer. This will provide a strong base for your makeup that will prevent it from running or smudging throughout your friends' nuptials.

Mascara can be another tricky issue on an especially hot day, so make sure you use an lash curler beforehand. This will ensure that your lashes have the perfect curl and help to spread the cosmetics evenly over them.

While many of the outfits are risk-taking ventures by some of today's hottest designers, bold lip colors paired with winged liquid eyeliner and tube mascara have emerged as common threads throughout the week's many fashion shows.

<![CDATA[Pencil vs. Liquid - which type of eyeliner is truly the best? ]]> Thu, 16 May 2013 08:37:27 +0000 raveinfo pencil+vs+liquid+which+type+of+eyeliner+is+truly+the+best_3356_800703532_0_0_7044518_300Many women are on the fence about which type of eyeliner is better - liquid or pencil. While most have a favorite, the truth of the matter is that there are advantages to both types.

Liquid eyeliners have grown in popularity because they are less prone to running and they can help you achieve an enchanting look. With liquid eyeliner, you can define your eyelids and turn them into works of art.

However, pencil eyeliners have their benefits, too. Although it may not be applied as smoothly, pencil eyeliner can help create the smokey eye look and give you a bolder appearance. However, pencil is prone to running due to moisture, so you might have to pay a little extra to invest in a waterproof liner.

If you don't want to deal with the hassle of sharpening and want a lasting look, you might want to stick to liquid eyeliners. The liquid eyeliner from blinc is designed to give your eyes definition and it won't run or smudge throughout the day.

Just remember to brush up on your knowledge through a liquid eyeliner tutorial before applying it. Although it's easy to glide on, there is room for error and you don't want to walk out the door looking like a raccoon!

According to BecomeGorgeous.com, one of the best things you can do to improve the strength of your concealer is exfoliate your skin beforehand.

The news source suggests using an effective facial cleanser to remove any dead skin cells, oils or other material from your face that could cause your cosmetics to run. When your face is ready, be sure to only use small amounts at a time - this will ensure that the makeup is spread evenly and won't begin to clump later in the evening.

You can use concealer right around your eyes to hide any dark circles and create a lifting effect that will improve your look. Additionally, applying it around your nose, mouth and chin can effectively cover up any trouble spots you may be dealing with.

With the perfect makeup base, you can then finish your ensemble with tube mascara or liquid eyeliner to give your eyes added definition.

If you've been invited to one of these events, your makeup ensemble will have to be a bit more toned down than usual. Thankfully, using a touch of tube mascara and a subtle eyeshadow shade should be perfect for the occasion.

If you're sticking to a neutral ensemble, opt for a subtle pop of color in your eye makeup or lip color. Avoid anything brash and bold and instead use a subtle color like mauve or light purple on your eyes prepped with eyeshadow primer. A dynamic red lip color may also look out of place at a religious ceremony, so stick with pale pinks and tangerine hues instead.

Above all, you're going to want to use minimal makeup coverage to allow your skin to look fresh and natural. Skip the heavy foundation and blush and instead use small bits of concealer to hide any imperfections.

Planning ahead and researching the dress code at the particular event will help you make a determination to create an appropriate look for the occasion.

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

Among the most noticeable trends was the use of colorful liquid eyeliners that were winged out in a cat eye shape.

According to Glamour magazine's beauty blog, models at the Anna Sui fashion show and The Blonds show strutted down the catwalk wearing bold, beautiful liquid eyeliners with interesting details. The Anna Sui models had bright liquid eyeliner with a dot of color in the center of their lower lids, while the models at The Blonds had reptilian-like iridescent shades.

You can easily tweak these high-fashion looks by taking them down a notch to make them wearable works of art. Just use blinc's liquid eyeliners to create a thick cat eye shape along your upper lash line, then follow up with tube mascara to define your lashes. Skip eyeliner on your lower lash line, and make sure the rest of your makeup stays neutral - your eyes should be the focus!

According to Glamour.com, using a bit of liquid eyeliner on your lower lash line, paired with tube mascara, can be a fabulous way to save time in the morning.

A water-resistant variety of liquid eyeliner is the best way to ensure that your makeup won't smudge or run throughout the day. You can also find the product in many different colors if you're feeling a bit daring or if you're wearing a similar hue.

The one shortcoming of this look is that dark circles can ruin it in a hurry! Make sure to have a concealer that matches your skin type and apply it around the base of your eyes. With your neutral backdrop set, your eyeliner will have a far more dramatic presence and will work to give your eyes added definition.

You have enough to worry about in the morning, so why not make your everyday regimen at bit easier?

<![CDATA[Three ways to change up your eyeliner ]]> Thu, 16 May 2013 08:27:15 +0000 raveinfo Are you looking for a new way to make your eyeliner stand out? The same old routine can get boring after a while, and a new look is the perfect way to open yourself up to other changes in your life - like talking to that cute guy, taking a chance on a new job or finally getting a start on your workout routine. Here are three ways to inject a little something new into your eyeliner.

1. Switch to liquid eyeliner. Learning to apply liquid liner takes some practice, but you'll quickly find that the results are worth it. Liquid varieties create a thicker line that won't smudge or run, unlike many pencil liners.

2. Go retro. Add some volume to your lashes with this throwback trick: gently curve your liner upward as you approach the outer corner of your eye. The winged look is a classic - and a great way to stand out in the crowd.

3. Try colors. Black's not the only option when it comes to eyeliner! Try shimmery gold or silver for a night on the town, or try brown or navy blue for a daytime look that's noticeable without being brash.

Then, she used liquid eyeliner around the perimeter of Vergara's eyes then applied bronze and tan hues to her upper lids.

What really stood out about Vergara's look was a bronze winged accent that framed the corners of her eyes. McAdams's secret to making this work is using a bit of concealer on areas where she didn't want the heavy makeup look.

Of course, the silver lining of using bronze and other shades of brown eyeshadow is that they can blend with one another to create something truly unique. Experiment to find the right match to your skin tone to see if you can pull off a true A-lister look.

<![CDATA[Liquid eyeliner tips for your lower lash line ]]> Thu, 16 May 2013 08:24:58 +0000 raveinfo You probably know that the perfect smoky eye calls for liquid eyeliners to be perfectly blended on both the upper and lower lash lines. But have you mastered the art of application yet?

Glamour Magazine's beauty blog has a few words of wisdom from a celebrity makeup artist who might be able to help you figure out exactly how to get that perfectly-blended eyeliner.

First of all, a sultry smoky eye requires a dense, soft-bristled smudging brush that will quickly and easily blend a bit of dark shadow over your liquid eyeliner. This will ensure that there is a soft effect. When you're blending, use the brush to smudge the shadow a bit past the outer corner of your eye, so it can meet up with the shadow on top.

Next, use a lash curler from blinc to define your lashes and give them a bold curl. Follow up with a coat of lash primer, which will extend your lashes and prepare them for tube mascara. Finally, apply two coats of the tube mascara, combing your lashes in between coats to ensure that they're feathery - not spidery.
