How to Choose False Eyelashes for Close-Set Eyes

If you have been super concerned with your close set eyes and want to make them pop, falsies are a must. Choose false eyelashes with more volume on the outer corner.

Lashes for Wide Set Eyes that are Fire

On the opposite side of the spectrum, we have eyes that are set far apart from each other. Call attention away from the outer corners, so avoid angled lashes. Choose false eyelashes with the same length from the middle to the outer corner. Work the eyeliner extending it towards the bridge of your nose.

Picking the Most Fab Eyelashes for Deep Set Eyes

How do you know if your eyes are deep set? Place your index finger upwards over your eye. If you cannot touch it, then you have amazing deep set eyes. The doll look, also recommended for round eyes, and with long and very wispy lashes are a great choice. Any false eyelashes that are very long and very voluminous will give the illusion of less depth. False eyelashes that are very long in the middle will help draw the eye forward as well.

Perfect Fake Lashes for Prominent Eyes

Prominent eyes are expressive, so the natural look is the most fitting both for day or night. For an instant smoldering vibe, add longer lashes at the outer end to create a cat eye. Or try long and curly lashes in the middle for a flirty look. It is best to opt for falsies with separate lashes and not much volume so they don’t overwhelm your eyes.

False lashes are the quickest, easiest way to open up your eyes and make them appear infinitely larger.

False Eyelashes for Hooded Eyes (or Heavy Lided)

The secret with hooded eyes is to cover the eyelid. Opt for curlier lashes, lashes that are longer in the outer corner on in the middle. A nice cat eye with long and curled lashes will look divine. Avoid straight lashes at all costs. Go thin with your eyeliner or pick a sparkly one to brighten the look.

A great tip? Apply individual false eyelashes to the outer part of your lash line! Use a tweezer to apply individual false eyelashes for extra precision.

Get Flirty Looks for Round Eyes!

If you have round eyes, avoid voluminous false eyelashes as they round up the eye even more. It is best to opt for long, thin and separate falsies. Or some with a short-long pattern, that gives a bit of a doll-like effect that opens up the eye. You may also choose winged and wispy lashes that go along the lash line well to help create a cat eye shape.

Best False Eyelashes for Monolids

Monolids lack that natural double crease plus the lids cover most of the eyelashes making them look shorter.
Longer lashes definitely help draw attention to your eyes. So, a less dense pair of fake and curly eyelashes can add more volume and create a believable, lush look. Pick some with natural length bur lots or curl, preferably elongated ones for a cat eye effect. Go ahead and flaunt your peepers!

How to Get the Perfect Lip Look: Sure-Fire Tips to Apply Lipstick to Thin Lips

Most girls with skinny or thin lips dream of having fuller lips. And this year they are in luck! You can take two approaches to get the perfect lip look.

First, contour them with a liquid lip liner right outside of your lip line. Just, don’t go overboard! Blend it towards the lips to avoid any harsh lines. Then apply the color lipstick of your choice, preferably with a brush.

Now apply a dab of a lighter lipstick to the center of the lower lip. And finally, give them an illusion of roundness by applying a pearly color, glitter or gloss on the center of the lower lip.

Tip: If you have thin lips, avoid matte lipstick because it will make your lips look even thinner. Pick a glossy lipstick instead.

Makeup Tricks for Full Lips or Wide Mouths

The trick to disguise a wide mouth or full lips is basically the same. Apply a makeup base on the lips and then outline them with a color as similar to your skin as possible following the outline inside them. You can use any lipstick kind, but ideally go for more matte and non-glossy lipsticks. Gloss will make your lips look bigger.

How to Get the Perfect Lip Look for Irregular Lips

Irregular or asymmetric lips can happen when one of the lips looks much bigger than the other. To make them look the same size, delineate the outline of the smallest lip outward or the larger one inwards to make them look even. If the lip corners are dropped, the makeup trick is to draw the outline a bit upwards to give them the opposite look.

Apply glitter to your Cupid’s bow for a plumpier, glossier lip. Remove the extra glitter with some scotch tape. If it’s already pronounced, skip this step and add some shine to your lower lip!

If you love bold red lips, the only way to do it in 2018, is to have a very barely-there rest of the look makeup. Let your lips tell the story and be the center of attention.

You can also go for a cherrybomb lip look where the majority of color is concentrated on the lower lip, whilst the upper is given just a subtle stain and finish with lipgloss (obvs). There’s a lot of fun to be had on lips this year!

Why is Natural Skincare Growing in Popularity?

There is a trend towards the more natural ingredients versus the ingestion of industrial chemicals. People are also more aware of the importance of protecting the environment and going green.

A growing number of people – particularly women – are rejecting chemical-filled treatments and cosmetics for higher priced, natural, plant-based alternatives. Besides being more effective, organic and natural skincare ingredients protect us from ingesting harmful preservatives, parabens, and irritants—found in their chemical counterparts. Nothing like the original, amiright?

We see it on the food industry with more farm-to-table and sustainable catering and in the beauty industry with the growth of natural skincare products. After all, the skin is our largest organ and powerful chemicals can be quickly absorbed through it.

1Paint your nails with the white nail polish

2Next, protect your fingers well – either with scotch tape as shown on the picture or with protective wax – there’s gonna be a LOT of splattering! The more surface you cover, the better off you will be.

3Suck some red nail polish through a straw and blow it all over your nails. Don’t suck too hard and make sure you cover the surface you will be working on.

4Repeat the process with the blue nail polish!

5Arm yourself with a Q-Tip and some nail polish remover and carefully clean up your fingers.

6Don’t they look amazing? You’ll be getting compliments left and right!

Feel free to do the same to your toes and give yourself a very patriotic pedi.
