• How to ensure that your makeup lasts throughout your entire wedding

    When you're in the middle of one of the biggest days of your life, the last thing you want to worry about is whether your makeup needs a touch-up. As a bride, sneaking off to the bathroom to re-powder your face or slick on a bit more lipstick takes the fun out of the party, so it's best to choose products that will last for the duration of the event.

    When it comes to your eye makeup, blinc cosmetics has everything you need. With special formulas that guarantee not to run, smudge or fade, you won't need any other tube mascara or liquid eyeliner. The eyebrow mousse will also keep your brows perfectly groomed throughout your wedding.

    As far as lipstick is concerned, Allure Magazine recommends using a non-greasy lip balm first before you apply the shade of your choice. This will act as a barrier that will prevent fading. Smooth your lipstick on over it, then blot and reapply for a pout that will remain perfect.

    In addition, the news source recommends using a translucent powder over your entire face to set all of your makeup and ensure a shine-free finish.

  • Active women can turn to waterproof mascara in the summer months

    Most of us love long, lazy days on the beach and sultry nights spent dining al fresco, but the heat and the humidity of the summer months can sometimes cause our makeup to run.

    Makeup artist to the stars, Kimara Ahnert, recently dished a few tips to Access Hollywood to help women avoid the unflattering effects of blurry makeup.

    Ahnert suggested that active women who want to look fresh despite their busy schedules and the balmy weather can turn to waterproof mascara for a pristine appearance.

    "Waterproof mascara, an old standby, has an added polymer that makes the formula stick to your lashes and resistant to water," she told the news provider. "To avoid mascara smudges on your eyelids, apply a dusting of pressed powder on your brow bone."

    The expert, who has worked with the likes of Brooke Shields, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Gwyneth Paltrow, also suggested using oil-free foundations and concealer during the warm months.

    Women who desire the hold of waterproof mascara, but with easy removal can turn to tubing mascara, which requires no makeup remover and slide off with simply water and gentle pressure.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19811882-ADNFCR

  • Blending your work makeup into a glamorous evening ensemble

    With the holiday party season on the horizon, many ladies will be going straight from the office to myriad formal events, and that could be a detriment to their makeup! However, according to Access Hollywood, there are a number of ways to use tube mascara and liquid eyeliner to your advantage to create a fabulous look.

    When you're on the way to your formal event, be sure to give your eyes a quick dose of glittering shimmer - this can go directly over the top of your existing eyeshadow and give your eyes a luminous glow. Alternatively, you can remove your current makeup and use a heated eyelash curler to revitalize your lashes for the party.

    If you're not a fan of red lipstick, opt for a shade of pale pink during the day. When the soiree rolls around, you can easily put on a shade of bright rose or lavender that will blend beautifully with your daytime color.

    If you're looking for a touch of definition on your eyes after a long day, try blinc Eyeliner. This handy product will provide a water-resistant layer of color that won't smudge, run or crease throughout the night's activities. 

  • Is he gay... or just a hipster?

    is+he+gay+or+just+a+hipster_3356_800246513_0_0_7076577_300So, you met a guy and you're starting to crush. After the appropriate amount of Facebook stalking, you figure out he doesn't have a girlfriend and you step up your text messaging game. As the chatting turns into a let's-grab-drinks first date, you're psyched. After all, he's cute, funny, smart and a great dresser - what's not to like? Oh, right. Maybe the fact that he shops at H&M more than you do?

    At first you think, well maybe he's just metro - no big deal. Then you realize he owns more keffiyeh-style neck scarves than you and all of your girlfriends combined. Clearly, there are only two logical explanations: he is gay... or just a hipster.

    With jeans getting tighter and neon patterns getting brighter, it can be harder and harder to determine the difference between the two. However, there are a few questions you can ask yourself that may help you make the distinction.

    First and foremost, has he already gotten into your pants? - If he regularly wears your skinny jeans, he's a hipster. If he won't even let you touch his True Religions? We say gay.

    What are his feelings on facial hair? - If he has a mustache tattooed on his index finger, he's a hipster (and sadly, not a very cool one). If he mentions his need for a beard, you're barking up the wrong tree, sweetie.

    Where did your mascara go? - If he asks to borrow your eyeliner, he's a hipster. If borrows your eyeliner and also requires blinc Eyebrow Mousse, Mascara and a bit of shimmer, he's probably gay (and most likely looks better than you).

    Now, if you've determined he's a hipster, you're likely pretty thrilled, as you can soon commence the no-pants dance. However, as great as this conclusion may be for your hormones, there is one major red flag that you may want to check out. You've just attracted a hipster - so what does that make you?

    Quick, look down. Are you holding a can of PBR? Are you wearing thick-framed glasses even though you have perfect natural vision? Do you have the word "Shhh" tattooed on your index finger?

    If you have answered yes, congratulations - you may just be in hipster heaven.

  • 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.
