Did you ruined your eyebrows?

If you want to use a tweezers at home you can discover  unpleasant surprises, but experts have some advices for us. If we follow them we can restore all the damage.

I usually go to the salon because my eyebrows have a strange shape and I’m afraid not to use the tweezers in the wrong way. Givenchy Eyebrow Show Pencil

Error:  You took to much from your eyebrows and now you can see small empty spaces

Solution: Comb your eyebrows with the special brush. Use a eyebrow pencil, color the area and use a clean brush from a mascara to color it.

Purple Pop eye make-up

Go to town with purple and yellow to create ’70s pop art on your eyes. Apply a sunny yellow powder shadow to the inner eye, right up to the brow and inward to above the pupil.

Next, rub a silver highlighting cream just under the brow, from the edge of the yellow shade and out. Dust the area underneath the highlighter with a lilac shimmer powder and trace the lower lash line with the same shade.

Intensify the color in the socket line by layering a darker purple shadow on top. Finish with lashings of purple mascara and pinky-nude lip gloss.

Essential colors:

  • Cosmetics a la carte eye define in saffron
  • Bobbi Brown metallic eye shadow in lavender
  • Clarins single eye color in 01 vibrant violet
  • Bourjois eau de gloss in beige rafraichissante

Silver Grey-new makeup style

Silver grey makeup accentuates your eyes. Wear this shadow in any moment of the day and in the evening transform it in smokie only by a touch of brush. You can get inspiration from the look proposed by Salvadore Ferragamo for this season: silvery eyelids, thin irisations on the inner corners of the eye and “naked” lips. As far as the eyebrows, we won’t be oversolicitating the pincer.

Try yourself:

  1. Sephora Radiance Mist – you don’t want your face to shine, but also not to be very dull!
  2. Lancome color fever gloss
  3. Chanel Fluid iridescent eyeshadow, 6ml. Apply it on the superior eyelids.
  4. Revlon Colorstay 12 hour eyeshadow. Use the most bright shadow to illuminate the inner corners of the eye.
  5. Clarins Waterproof Eye Pencil
  6. Estee Lauder Perfectionist Wrinkle lifting serum, 50ml.
  7. Clinique superfit make-up oil free longwear.
  8. L’Oreal Paris Khol Mineral liner pudre mineral. Line the superior eyelid after you had applied a silvery eyeshadow in a brighter color.
  9. Bourjois Blush tomette d’or.
  10. Collistar silk Effect Loose powder Golden Pearl. After fond de tent, apply powder over the eyelids to ensure the eye shadow’s resistance.

Accent on your lips – lipstick colors for autumn

Redelicious A romantic look, inspired from Scarlett O’Hara style assures you visibility in any moment of the day. Inspire yourself from the collections Dsquared2, Zac Posen, Moschino, Vivienne, Westwood or Miu Miu. Use the brush to apply perfectly the lipstick.

Plum&Berry Too daring? Not at all…lips on dark purple colors, brown or shade or black berry point out your perfect face skin. Try the variant “spotted lips” ( point with lipstick in some parts, then press the lips against each other and …its done), ideal if you are not sure of the lip-liner.

Makeup ready in a second

Wake up and shine! A tanned face is much easier to arrange in the morning. Use a self-tanning about twice a week or chose a product that you can applied it daily. My recommendation is Instant Bronzer from Ga-De.

Shorten your facial routine. Start by applying a base to fix your makeup and to avoid refreshing it later. I recommend you Boots No 7 Mattifying Make-up Base. Then, apply a fond-du-teint adjusted to your face; you can try Astor Air Mousse. Apply a correcteur to cover up the little “problems”. A close friend can be Clinique Airbrush Concealer. In order that your makeup keeps fresh all the time, i recommend you Clarins Fix Make-up.
