  • Feeling BROWbeaten?

    Brow Blog ImageIt's time to take your brows back...

    GROW THEM OUT IN ROWS
    Allow the hairs closest to your existing brow line to grow in, once they have achieved a blendable length, begin growing in the next row, repeat this cycle until your desired
    fullness is achieved - To keep things looking neat throughout the process use blinc’s Micro Trimmer to carefully groom beneath the new growth, keeping strays at bay!

    STIMULATE GROWTH THROUGH EXFOLIATION
    Thin or sparse eyebrows can be the result of over-plucking, a medical condition, or genetics.
    Exfoliating with a spooly may help and doing so will slough off dead skin cells, increases blood flow and stimulate growth. After washing your face, gently “scrub” your brows using
    blinc’s brow & Liner Duo Brush

    APPLY PEPTIDES TWICE DAILY
    blinc’s Long Lash double duties as a brow serum - the same peptides that dramatically enhance the look of lashes work on brows as well. When used twice daily results can be seen in as little as 2-4weeks!

    FILL IN YOUR BROWS WHILE YOU WAIT
    Just because your brows are growing out doesn’t mean you can’t have the beautiful face-framing brows you’re dreaming of.  Fill in the sparse areas and shape your entire brow with blinc eyebrow mousse, which simultaneously treats the underlying skin with a moisturizing, anti-aging peptide!

  • Don't be "That Girl" at your office holiday party

    don+t+be+that+girl+at+your+office+holiday+party_3356_800275691_0_0_4001634_300The holiday season is upon us and that means one thing. No, we're not talking about giving gifts to your loved ones or trimming the tree with your family. It's time for your company's Christmas party! 'Tis the season to get drunk on your boss' dime.

    And while we advise you to take full advantage of this opportunity, we beg of you one thing. Don't be the That Girl. You know the one we mean. The one who could give pre-rehab Lindsay Lohan a run for her party-hearty money. That Girl who has to call in sick on Monday to nurse a hangover and hang her head in shame. That Girl who's the main reason for the cash bar at next year's party. Don't be "That Girl."

    Luckily, it's easy to have a great a deservedly wild time without becoming the archetypal office good-times girl - all it takes is a bit of preparation, a dash of foresight and a few smart decisions to ensure that you won't have to worry about sideways glances and silent snickering on Monday morning.

    1. Don't wear anything too formal or too slutty. This isn't prom and it's not a street corner.

    2. Do choose something you feel great in. If you aren't comfortable, you may go a little overboard on the liquid courage to feel more at ease, which can be a slippery, red-cheeked gin-soaked slope.

    3. Don't wear makeup that needs to be touched up through out the night. Frequent trips to the bathroom to "powder your nose" may give coworkers the wrong impression.

    4. Do use cosmetics that will have your back, whether you're throwing back shots with your boss or teaching the sales department how to Dougie. Apply long-lasting blinc Mascara - it won't flake, smudge or run so you can party hard without fear.

    5. Don't show off your shot-gunning, whiskey-chugging skills. It's an open bar, not a college drinking contest.

    6. Do drink like you mean it. You aren't footing the bill and let's face it - your company owes you.

    7. Don't overshare. While liquor may make your lips looser, lock it up. It may seem like a hilarious story at the time, but do you really want your coworkers to know how you won that contest on spring break in Cancun come Monday morning?

    8. Do keep your ears open. Just because you aren't spilling secrets doesn't mean others won't - and when they're not your own stories, they are wildly entertaining!

  • Aunt Millie's guide to looking great during the holidays

    aunt+millie+s+guide+to+looking+great+during+the+holidays_3356_800254276_0_0_7077249_300It's officially the most wonderful time of the year, and women across the country are packing up their makeup bags and heading home for the holidays. And while everybody does their best to dress to impress, there is one woman who will undoubtedly steal the show - your great aunt Millie.

    Okay, you may not have a great aunt named Millie but you know who we're talking about. Maybe she's your grandmother or that distant relative who everybody swears you are related to but nobody can actually figure out how. Maybe she's that lady who simply shows up to every holiday function oblivious to the fact that she isn't actually a part of the family. Regardless, every one has a Millie - the woman who wears more makeup than Snooki. The one whose hair is bigger than Snooki herself. The one who has used the same beauty products since 1975.

    However, don't be so quick to dismiss the old broad. After all, her look most likely gets more attention than yours does. So this holiday season, put down the gloss and pick up those pencils - here are Aunt Millie's secrets to looking stylish at your next holiday gathering.

    1. Rock the two-tone look. No, we're not talking about hair dye or eyeshadow, we're talking skin. Your face and your neck should not, under any circumstances, match. Apply a thick, liquid concealer to give your complexion a lovely orange tint and stop at your jawline. Put down the makeup sponge and admire your visage - your skin will seem even more tan compared to your pale, natural-colored neck!

    2. Color in those brows like you mean it. We know, we know, you depend on your blinc Eyebrow Mousse to subtly enhance your arches with natural-looking color. But who wants realistic brows? Not Millie, that's for sure. Millie would urge you to drop that wand and pick up the pencil. Draw an outline around your existing brows and color them in thickly. We suggest a slightly raised arch to indicate how happy you are. The best part? If you get angry during the holiday gathering, don't worry about having to explain yourself - simply duck into the bathroom, wipe off your brows and draw on some angry-looking arches.

    3. Blush ready for battle. You know how you can apply color to the apples of your cheeks to mimic the rosy flush from the crisp winter air? Well, Millie doesn't. Instead, she takes blush to a new level and brushes on two bold stripes of color from her temple to the corner of her nose. Sure, it may look like warpaint, but how else will people determine where your cheekbones are? Bonus: If William Wallace calls, you are ready for battle.

    Finish with a few dozen coats of bright lipstick - magenta can be festive, but matte coral will suffice if you desire a more understated look - and you're good to go. Watch out, Aunt Millie - looks like you've got some competition this holiday season.

  • How to cope with a breakup

    how+to+cope+with+a+breakup_3356_800344787_0_0_7077116_300Singer-songwriter Neil Sedaka said it best: Breaking up is hard to do.* Right on, Neil, right on. But while the breakup itself may be difficult, nothing surpasses the pain in the weeks to follow. So how do you cope with that horrid period of time? Simple: Get up, get out and get some. Soon enough, you'll be over it.

    First of all, put down the ice cream. It may seem like a suitable substitution for your ex, but trust us, Ben and Jerry won't kiss you good morning or take you out at night. Snuggling up to food is perhaps the worst revenge ever. The best? Living your life and doing fantastic things that you weren't able to do when you were tied down (hello make out session with the sexy trainer at your gym!).

    Even if your ex lives on the other coast, it's almost guaranteed that you will run into him on the day you feel at your worst. However, you can still look your best. Before heading out, spend some time in the mirror making yourself look awesome.

    Because you've likely been crying for days, pay special attention to your eyes - nobody should be able to tell you've been sobbing. Rim your eyes with a dark liner for a smoldering and sexy stare. Cover your lids with a shimmery shadow to reflect light and detract from the puffiness that tears can bring, and apply highlighting powder to the inner corners of your eyes to add brightness.

    Coat your lashes with dark blue blinc Mascara. The water-resistant formula won't run (even if you shed a few tears) and the pigment will make your reddened eyes appear whiter. Finish with a bit of blush and a berry-colored lipstick that boasts a slight sheen for an absurdly kissable pout.

    Once you look the part, it's time to get out there and get some. Round up your favorite single ladies and hit the town for a night you'll never forget. Well, truthfully your memory will probably start to go after the third kamikaze shot, but hey, if you can't remember your own name, you won't remember your ex's either!

    *Side note: Who would have thought that Neil Sedaka would have penned one of the most lasting, insightful lyrics of the past 60 years? Seriously. Way to go, Neil.

  • Stop applying makeup in these public places: A short plea

    stop+applying+makeup+in+these+public+places+a+short+plea_3356_800361785_0_0_7015293_300Angelina Jolie is no stranger to stealing the spotlight at awards shows - who could forget her displays of sisterly affection at the 2000 Academy Awards? - but this time, she didn't even have to take the stage to attract attention. During the 68th Golden Globe awards, cameras caught Jolie reapplying lip gloss as Matt Damon presented Robert De Niro with the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

    While some analysts believed that this action humanized Jolie ("Look! I apply makeup just like everyone else!"), we found it inappropriate. One of the world's greatest actors is getting a lifetime achievement award, but Jolie was worried that her lips weren't shiny enough (not to mention, using makeup at a dinner table anywhere is a bit gauche).

    Inspired by Jolie's lip-slip, we've compiled a short list of places we're tired of seeing ladies reapply makeup.

    A sporting event. Chances are if you are a die-hard fan, you wouldn't risk missing a minute of the game to make sure your eyeshadow hasn't creased. But even if you're dragged to the game by your friends and have no interest in the action on the field, there is one thing we can promise you: You know how little you care about the game? Yeah, well the other people in the arena care even less about whether or not your lipstick has faded. Let it go, sit back and just enjoy the day.

    The gym. Whether you dominate the treadmill or the free weights, the only items you should be carrying around the gym with you are a bottle of water and a towel (an iPod or book is fine as well). If you must get dolled up to work out - which is weird in and of itself - opt for water-resistant products like blinc Mascara and Eyeliner. They'll last through your sweaty sessions so you won't have to reapply as your working out.

    Driving. Okay this one isn't even about social decency - this is a matter of public safety! While you have every right to risk stabbing yourself in the eye with your mascara wand, applying makeup as you drive could distract you and you could end up hurting someone else on the road. Wait until you get to your destination, park the car and then feel free to take out the lipstick and go to town in your rear-view mirror.

    Don't get us wrong, we understand the need for a touch-up now and then, but that's why there are restrooms with mirrors above the sinks. Next time you're out and about, just think "What Would Angelina Do?"... and then do the opposite.
