  • Bold lip colors are a serious spring trend for 2012

    bold+lip+colors+are+a+serious+spring+trend+for+2012_3356_800709286_0_0_14008042_300New York Fashion Week is in full swing, and many of the hottest outerwear and makeup combinations are on display. 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.

    While winter is all about the perfect pouty red lips, spring gives ladies the chance to try out something a bit different. Thus far, some of the hottest lip hues have been tangerine, lavender and even varying shades of red. When paired with neutral eye makeup, it's the easiest way to make a statement with your ensemble.

    The best part about these looks is that you can wear them during a night on the town or adapt them to your work ensembles. As long as you use a matte option or one that's not as shiny as other products, these lipsticks should blend with your outfit beautifully.

    Spring is one of the most exciting times of year for fashion-forward individuals, so this is the perfect opportunity to stock up on lash curlers and other dynamic cosmetics in time for the season.

  • Make the switch to a heated lash curler this spring

    make+the+switch+to+a+heated+lash+curler+this+spring_3356_800709293_0_0_14042160_300Fashionistas everywhere are getting ready for the spring season, the time of year when they can combine the compelling neutrals of winter with the bright and bold shades of spring. While your attire will certainly make or break your look, you may want to consider investing in tube mascara and a heated lash curler to amp up your look this season.

    One of the greatest advantages of a heated lash curler over the old design is that it will curl your lashes easily without risking damage to your eyelids. Since a traditional lash curler will require additional pressure to achieve the perfect curl, it could result in lash breakage or bring tears to your eyes.

    Many heated lash curlers are U-shaped and come with special pads that can protect the surface of your eyelids. This gentle design will work far faster than the old design and can help your curl last twice as long.

    Of course, always use your curler before you apply mascara. This will ensure that your cosmetics have a superior hold throughout the day. That means spending less time in front of the mirror and more time heading out to enjoy everything spring has to offer!

  • Visit with a few makeup artists before you're ready to walk down the aisle

    With your wedding day on the horizon, you probably have more than enough things on your mind - from invitations to seating arrangements to planning out your reception menu. However, your makeup choices will be seen in your wedding photos for years to come, so make sure you stop in and visit more than one makeup artist to craft the perfect style.

    When it comes to bridal makeup, conventional wisdom says that less is more. With this in mind, you're going to have to find a good mixture of tube mascara, liquid eyeliner and other cosmetics that won't detract from the look of your dress.

    Ask around and try to find as many different opinions as possible. Visiting a few salons and getting a sense of what your skin will look like under varying light sources and when exposed to flashbulbs will be vitally important in planning out your bridal makeup.

    Most importantly, have fun with the experience! It's not so often that you get to be pampered, not to mention the chance to try out new cosmetics, so enjoy every minute of the process to find the look that suits you.

  • Exfoliating your skin can help your concealer do its job

    exfoliating+your+skin+can+help+your+concealer+do+its+job_3356_800710195_0_0_7023457_300When you're about to head out for the evening, you may want to cover up any imperfections with a touch of concealer before you put on eyeshadow primer or other cosmetics. 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.

  • Choosing the ideal makeup look for a religious event

    choosing+the+ideal+makeup+look+for+a+religious+event_3356_800710185_0_0_7018575_300Spring's the time of year when many Christian religious ceremonies like communions and confirmations are held. 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.
