Use Sticky Tape to Create a Perfect Line!
Picture this: you try to create a perfect cat eye but struggle to get both sides even and instead end up with a bumpy, uneven line. Well sticky tape can help! It can provide a stencil for your eyeliner meaning you get a perfect even line every time!
Make sure to remove the stick from the tape before you use it! Place the sticky tape on the back of your hand and remove it a couple of times to prevent it from damaging skin around the eyes.

Eyeshadow for Brown, Hazel, Blue, Green and Grey Eyes

Brown eyes? Blue eyes? Green eyes? Hazel eyes? Grey eyes? Either way I’m a believer in the theory of: Love something? Wear it! There are no rules when it comes to makeup. However if you’re wanting to really enhance a certain feature certain colours and techniques can help. Generally the most flattering shades for your eye colour are ones on the opposite side of the colour spectrum.

Eyeshadow for Brown Eyes, Hazel Eyes, Blue Eyes, Green Eyes and Grey Eyes

It’s important to note that these shades don’t just have to be worn as eyeshadow! Experiment by wearing them as eyeliner or mascara. If you’re scared of bold shades try using them in sheer formulas like creams or liquids and blend them in with your fingertips. 

If you still struggle with finding your perfect eyeshadow shade to compliment your eyes try a kit specifically designed to your eye colour and examine the shades in them, otherwise purchase one! Many drugstore brands do them and the quality is often quite good.

1920s Gatsby Flapper Girl Makeup Tutorial

The 1920s are one of my favourite era’s, simply for the fashion , hair and makeup.

The makeup was so elegant and anything but natural looking. The face was matte, the eyes were smoky and the lips were deep red. The hair was short, finger waves were the norm and hairbands were an absolute must.

Makeup essentials for when you’re time short.

BB Cream

A BB Cream (or tinted moisturiser) is perfect if you’re in a hurry because they give skin moisture and a healthy glow, as the coverage is usually sheer they can be applied and blended quickly. Opt for one with a high SPF so it can double up as your sunscreen too!

Try: Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream with SPF 30

Pink Lipstick

A creamy, pink lipstick is perfect for brightening up a sallow complexion. Apply it directly from the tube onto your lips for the best colour pay-off . To really enhance your skin, apply some as a blush onto your cheeks using your fingertips.  

Try: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Kissable Pink

Can you make your own gel eye liner?

Many beauty DIY tips circulate the web, from pimple cures to lip plumpers and now gel eyeliner.

Gel eyeliner is one of my favourite products and for good reason, it is smooth, creamy and can double up as not only an eyeliner, but an eyeshadow base too. However it’s best to give the the DIY option a miss.

Does concealer work as an eye primer?

Using concealer as an eyelid primer seems relatively harmless, it really won’t cause you any harm, but will it actually work?

Concealers are great at covering dark circles, blemishes, acne, scars, broken capillaries and redness, heck they even do a fabulous job at covering visible veins and discolouration on the eyelids, but that doesn’t mean they make great eye primers … Concealers (especially those designed for under the eyes) often contain oils to help them blend over the skin easily and look natural so if you want your eye makeup to last they won’t help oily eyelids the slightest. Eye primers are designed to mattify the eyelids and “zap” any oils so that eye makeup doesn’t crease, smudge, run or fade and make colours appear brighter. Using a product that is creamy and oil based to prep the eyelids simply won’t work; and using a concealer as an eye primer can actually cause your eyeshadow to crease, not stay put.

Those who don’t have super oily eyelids and use a dry concealer may find this works but If you want your eye makeup to last and your eye shadow to appear more pigmented there are plenty of great budget friendly options, none of which include concealer. Try: ELF Essential Eyelid Primer.
