  • Boost the novelty factor with an orange pout

    boost+the+novelty+factor+with+an+orange+pout_3356_800332645_0_0_7042690_300While 2011 may have only just begun, it seems that everyone's already eagerly anticipating which new looks will be hot in the coming seasons.

    Glamour.com highlighted the vivacious tangerine pout of Arielle Vandenberg, who showed up to a recent event flaunting full-bodied waves that were as lively as her lipstick, which she expertly paired with strong brows and a plum shadow.

    We can't decide if it's the contrasting eye and lip colors or the brightness of her lipstick that made her look so startlingly original, but ladies can surely take a page out of her book by turning up the heat on their pouts.

    Pair bright orange lipstick with either a neutral eyeshadow or a contrasting shade of purple, blue or green. Emulate Vandenberg's groomed finish with blinc Eyebrow Mousse, which will lend color and fullness to sparse brows, as well as a couple coats of long-lasting blinc Mascara. Polish the look with a generous application of black liquid eyeliner.

  • Beat the cold with a bright pout

    beat+the+cold+with+a+bright+pout_3356_800350289_0_0_7023450_300For the same reason that people pull out the bright scarves and mittens when moods and temperatures reach an all-time low, colorful lipstick can provide a powerful antidote to the wintertime blues - and a sexy one at that.

    Glamour.com suggests using this trick for maximum impact on the go, as just a little bright lip color and a couple coats of mascara can instantly change your whole look.

    For a picture-perfect pout, Glamour recommends prepping lips with balm and using a soft toothbrush to gently exfoliate your mouth. Before you slick on lip color, apply concealer to the corners of your mouth and use lipliner to help prevent bleeding. Additionally, using a lip brush can help you achieve the precision you desire.

    Once you're done, you'll only need mascara to complete the look, according to the news source. Apply a couple coats of blinc Mascara for an on-the-go solution that'll give you optimum hold throughout the day and won't require any touch-ups.

  • Why you might want to use makeup to play up your left eye

    Have you ever noticed that one side of your face always seems to look better than the other? Whether you consistently find yourself angling your "good side" to the camera or just think that your silhouette is more flattering from a particular vantage point, science now suggests that there's a clear winner when it comes to most people's more flattering facial half

    According to a recent study at Wake Forest University, the left side of people's faces is usually considered the most attractive. When researchers took photos of both sides of the face and had viewers rank the attractiveness, the left side usually scored higher. The images were even flipped in some cases so the right looked like the left and vice versa - and people still chose the image on the left.

    Glamour Magazine's beauty blog speculates that this could have something to do with the fact that research has shown that the left side of the face is more expressive. Either way, it might be worth it to put a little extra effort into applying your blinc tube mascara and liquid eyeliner on your left eye!
