KYLIE JENNER IS UNRECOGNAZIBLE WITH NO MAKEUP AND A $1,500 TIE-DYE SWEATS ! Is that you Kylie? Kim Kardashian’s youngest sister showed her freshest face on her way to visit best friend Stassie Karanikolaou.

Kylie Jenner has been showing off her most natural side to fans on her social platforms. A few days ago she shared images where she wasn’t wearing hair extensions or fake lashes and now the beauty mogul decided to go one step further when she visited best friend Anastassia Karanikolau on April 19. Stormi’s mom sported the latest fashion trend in Hollywood wearing a tie-dye outfit by Amiri worth $1500, but that was her only acknowledgement to glamour, as the 22-year old wore no accessories whatsoever, not even shoes!

Kylie looked in good spirits on her way to visit her pal, to whom she recently said in a live chat: “This is such a good time to take your hair out and your nails out, no lashes.” And she leads by example, the pretty young billionaire was unrecognizable with her makeup free look and her hair pulled back in a bun.

“Sending out my love and prayers. & hoping this will all be over soon,” she said alongside this beautiful picture

During the lockdown, Kylie has not only been showing her natural style to her followers, but she has also been sending uplifting messages and spending important bonding time with her adorable two-year-old daughter Stormi. In fact, the little one surprised her mom recently with her new skills – she can already swim with no floats! “My baby is growing so much,” Kylie said with a beautiful picture of both of them.

What does Kim K Got To Do With Declining Mascara Sales?

kim-kardashian-big-lashes

A new trend is emerging in the beauty scene. Women are saying goodbye to their mascara wands and opting for false eyelashes or eyelash extensions instead. This new decline in mascara sales has left many insiders and beauty companies wondering what may have triggered this. Some even ponder if this shift was because of celebrities and social media influencers.

Clementina Richardson, who is a celebrity lash expert, believes this to be true. She explains that “Celebrities and social media in general drive trends, especially in beauty. It’s unbelievable the power and influence these women have over trends — and subsequently, sales.”

The Kardashians, for instance, have greatly impacted the beauty scene. Whether you follow their every move or not, one thing is certain, these ladies love to wear glam lashes and have inspired millions of women to try them too and ditch the mascara.

Since more and more women are now experimenting with false lashes and lash extensions, mascara sales have plummeted. On CNN this was referred to as the “Kardashian effect.”

Nielsen reported that at the ending of 2019, the mascara sales within its channels had seen a continuous decline for months. While in 2019, the company did report an overall makeup sale totaled $851 million dollars — a 2.4% decrease from 2018, Sales of mascara units have declined 7.4% year over year. This phenomenon is national as Market research company NPD Group reported that numerous department and beauty specialty stores have seen a 5% decline in mascara sales in November 2019.

Eyelash Curler And False Eyelashes On Table

While mascara is becoming an afterthought, the popularity of mascara alternatives is constantly soaring. According to Nielsen data, the sales of false lashes have seen a increase versus the previous year. Besides, lash treatments have seen an impressive 189% increase versus the previous year as a result of this souring popularity.

“Over the past few years, social media influencers certainly have played a valuable and powerful part in generating awareness and reinvigorating consumer interest in false eyelashes,” Genevieve Lee Aronson, the vice president of communications for Nielsen, said. “Additionally, innovations in the false lash space have made (historically tricky) application a bit more consumer-friendly.”

False Eyelashes and eyelash extensions have become extremely popular among beauty conscious women and have also become more affordable for the average consumer.

“Women of all ages can really benefit from wearing false lashes because it helps cut down your beauty routine,” Richardson explained. “You can toss away your eyeliner and mascara because your lashes will look flawless and fresh without a stitch of makeup.”

Lab Tech Putting On Eyelash Extentions on Customer

With all the rage for fake lashes, one thing is certain, good, old-fashioned mascara is still in rotation and shows no sign of disappearing anytime soon. According to Market research company NPD Group, mascara still holds the top position among women who wear makeup.

NPD Group’s beauty industry advisor, Larissa Jensen explains that “Consumers continue to look for value, which is in line with the fact that mascara minis are performing well, growing 15% in sales in a declining segment”. Even though there is a slight decline in its popularity, mascara still offers many perks to women who want to instantly switch up their look or simply accentuate their eyes and lashes.

Celebrity makeup artists will always love mascaras versatility! You can achieve a barely-there look, or you can go for full drama. For the same reasons, false lashes are a necessary makeup companion in any well prepped makeup tool kit. There are so many styles to choose from and you are able to transform the look of the eye in less than a minute.

Thankfully the market is saturated with eyelash products. Every woman can find an eyelash product that will fit her beautifully. Finding the right product for you depends on your lifestyle and personal preference.

“For someone who’s super busy, or has a special occasion, false eyelashes are super convenient! After mastering the skills of applying the lashes, you can get the appearance of bigger or wider shaped eyes depending on the lash style used,” Kate said. “If you prefer to be able to change your look every day, or really like to play with your makeup, I’d stick with false eyelashes or mascara instead of eyelash extensions.”

If you’re not exactly naturally endowed in the lash department and you’ve always longed for a long and voluminous set but aren’t really interested in lash extensions, false eyelashes are your next best bet (and, they don’t require a hefty sum of money every few weeks or a long-term commitment). Unfortunately, many falsies on the market are pretty intimidating—they’re often over-the-top dramatic or look like they’re better suited for an elaborate costume, rather than an everyday look.

The good news is that it’s actually easier than you think to fake a full set of lashes with falsies that look pretty convincing. These natural-looking faux lashes are subtle enough to mimic the look of lashes you could’ve been born with, but add enough length and volume to make a visible difference.
While I’m all about pronounced lashes for a glammed-out vibe, they don’t always make sense for the office, brunch or first dates. If you’re in the market for some realistic (and super convincing) falsies that will fool everyone you were born with it, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite pairs to try for yourself.

1. Kiss Products Looks so Natural Multipack

Fashion, jewelry, and cosmetic trends naturally change over the years. These changes are merely responses to shifting consumer preferences.

Despite this, diamonds and the market for selling diamond jewelry have always remained popular. There’s a simple reason this is the case: they’re beautiful. A gorgeous outfit becomes even more striking with the inclusion of diamond jewelry.

That said, not all diamonds are the same. They come in different sizes and shapes. They vary in quality. Additionally, the way people choose to wear them can vary on a case-by-case basis.

This can make the prospect of choosing diamonds a little overwhelming. You might wonder what determines how much diamonds cost, beyond the basics of cut, color, clarity, and carat. Perhaps you’re also interested to learn more about how you should choose diamonds to ensure they complement your personal style.

This guide will help. Keep reading to better understand how to choose the perfect diamonds for you.

What Affects the Cost of a Diamond?

You might already be somewhat familiar with the “four c’s.” These are the main factors diamond buyers use when assessing their quality:

  • Cut: A diamond’s cut refers to the shape of the diamond, and the way in which the facets interact with light.
  • Color: Diamonds can range in color. Usually, if a diamond’s color is particularly rare or beautiful, it will be more valuable than something relatively commonplace.
  • Clarity: Most diamonds have some blemishes and inclusions. The fewer, the better.
  • Carat: The metric carat is a measurement of a diamond’s weight.

It’s important to note that these are only the primary factors contributing to a diamond’s value. However, they aren’t the only factors.

For instance, sometimes jewelers will differentiate between clarity grades with modifiers. If a diamond’s clarity is almost enough to move up a grade, but not quite, a modifier can indicate it’s still of better quality than many other diamonds of the same grade.

Certain diamonds have also been cut into specific shapes. The process of cutting them requires absolute precision. This degree of increased precision contributes to a higher price.

In general, the more you look into this topic, the more you’ll realize diamonds can range dramatically in value and price. This becomes particularly clear when you consider what some celebrities have spent on diamond jewelry in the past.

Engagement Ring with Red Box

For example, Jennifer Lopez’s engagement ring is valued at a whopping $1.8 million. Paris Hilton had a ring that was even more expensive, at $2 million. Even the less-expensive celebrity engagement rings still often cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

That’s not to discourage you from buying diamond jewelry. You will find plenty of more affordable options. Those points simply illustrate how a range of factors can cause diamonds to range in value substantially.

Diamond Jewelry and Fashion Choices

Don’t make the mistake of assuming you can only wear a diamond as part of an engagement ring. While this is the traditional way to sport a diamond, it’s by no means the only option.

For example, perhaps you like to complement your fake lashes with flashy hoop earrings. The combination of fake lashes and large earrings will be sure to draw attention to your face. To enhance the effect, you could wear earrings with diamonds.

That said, maybe your tastes are a little different. You need to consider your own preferences when deciding how to wear diamonds with your favorite outfits. Luckily, there are many other styles worth trying. One is sure to appeal to you.

For example, you could think outside the box a bit, realizing a piece of jewelry can feature more than just one single diamond. A gorgeous pendant necklace featuring a teardrop-shaped diamond surrounded by several smaller diamonds will definitely make an impression when paired with an elegant dress or similar outfit and some false lashes.

Kiss magnetic lashes

Don’t shy away from colorful diamond patterns either. Yes, diamonds that are naturally colorful can be relatively expensive, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear strikingly colorful diamond jewelry if you’re on a budget. Many diamonds are also artificially color-enhanced. Their creators use a process based on the conditions that result in naturally colorful diamonds. Thus, the visual effect is remarkably similar, but the cost is often much lower.

Those are just a few examples to consider. Once more, diamonds have been popular in the fashion world for a very, very long time.

Diamond Ring on Black Background

Use this to your advantage. You can browse literally thousands of pictures from the past to get inspiration. Make a list of people you suspect wore diamonds well, and look through old pictures of them, making a note of any ideas that strike you.

It’s also worth noting that you can wear more than one diamond ring. Even if you already have an engagement ring, maybe you’re also attracted to diamonds of a different color or style. You could easily wear a different ring on another finger, allowing you to indulge the full spectrum of your fashion sense.

That’s the main point to remember. The way you choose to wear diamonds should be unique to you. These points will simply help you get started if you’re not accustomed to buying diamonds.

Kylie Jenner is going au naturel during her self-isolation amid Quarantine

Kylie Jenner has finally ditched the acrylics, hair extensions and fake lashes during her newfound life in quarantine. While self-isolating at home amid the coronavirus outbreak, people tend to fall into one of two beauty categories: all dolled up with nowhere to go or au natural. And, surprisingly, Kylie Jenner has entered the latter camp.

Kylie admits she’s ‘uncomfortable’ letting her real hair and nails breathe amid the Coronavirus pandemic — why she’s saying, ‘it’s time.’

It really is a brave, new world out there — and Kylie Jenner, queen of wigs, hair extensions, fake nails and a litany of other not-so-real beauty accessories — is a case in point. The Kylie Cosmetics founder shared a pair of posts on her Instagram Story on Friday, April 3, in which she revealed plans to take a break from the hair and nail tweaks she usually includes in even her most casual looking social media pics.

In one post, captioned “hair health journey,” Kylie showed off her not-quite shoulder-length, bronde bob, presumably made of the hair that’s actually growing out of her noggin. “This is actually the first time I’ve worn my natural hair,” she told her pal Stassie Karanikolaou in the second post, a chat on Instagram Live. She admitted she’s still “using her little Dyson thing,” which Allure suspects is a reference to a straightener. Other than that, she said she’s focusing on hair masks and argan oil treatments as long as she’s stuck at home.

Kylie and Stassie on Instagram today

A post shared by Kylie Jenner News (@kyliesnapchat) on

When Stassie noticed her pink manicured nails, Kylie urged her not to aim the camera at her hands. “Stop! I feel so uncomfortable,” she said. “My [acrylic] nails didn’t even need to be taken off. This is such a good time to just take your hair out and your nails out, no lashes.” The irony of the statement coming from a 22-year-old who’s been getting her lips and various other body parts reworked since she was a teen wasn’t lost on Stassie, who joked, “We’re just natural queens.” It apparently wasn’t lost on Kylie either. “So natural,” she added, her voice thick with playful sarcasm.

Makeup has very much become a part of many people’s lives. Allowing to leave the house feeling confident, giving those a doorway to showcasing an incredible amount of talent, by creating transforming makeup looks that separate those from the rest and creating career paths for many.

The diversity of makeup has quickly changed from constant research and development, and workstations turning the creation of makeup into a new wave of high-end technology.

However, makeup wasn’t always this versatile. Throughout time the cosmetics we use for style today was a protective layer those hid behind before.

But Why Makeup?

Both makeup lovers and researchers have devised many reasons as to why people began to wear makeup, dating further back then just the ‘women need to look pretty’ stereotype. Surprisingly, the reasons why stem from spiritual beliefs, religion and of course the way it can make us look more presentable.

The main correlated reasons are as follows:

  • Many believed it cured eye diseases
  • Makeup separated the higher and lower classes
  • It protected the wearer from the evil eye
  • It was used to shield the skin from sunburns
  • It was used as an Ancient fashion trend

Each reason for wearing makeup gave a completely different look. From ancient Pharaohs of Egypt to early Britain, each used these creative cosmetics to craft a style unlike others, but always being just as beautiful.

Today, the makeup style is toned down and inspiration has been drawn from Egyptian times.

Below, we will be going through the evolution of makeup, across the globe to see how much it has changed. Then you can see what era of makeup you wear the most, and maybe take inspiration from another for your next do?

6,000 BC- The Egyptian Era

The era of sophistication and the first to take so much care on their appearance was the Egyptians. Both men and women would use their physical features to their advantage and paint their bodies with crafted natural makeup paints created from substances such as animal fats, groundnuts and natural vegetable oil.

The products produced were made to stick to the skin, to leave the person decorated for the entire day, until the artwork was washed off.

The makeup consisted of lip tints, cheek rouge and dark, almond-shaped eyeliner, that would be worn by the masses from any living class. Many of the ancients from both genders would even go as far as to painting their fingernails and finding ways to dye their hair in order to have a complete look that would not be offensive to their gods and would make them appear far more attractive to potential partners.

Makeup Of The Medieval Times

This period of time is very different from that of the Ancient Egyptians. In the 15th century, it was said that wearing too much makeup in the sense to alter your face was proclaimed sinful. The women were taught to look fragile and fresh, with skin that is almost untouched, yet edited just enough to hold the beauty of the time.

This era was the ultimate example of ‘less is more’. Although women would experiment with homemade recipes in the hopes it would give their skin porcelain, healthy glow, but all were far too visible when the makeup had to look completely undetected.

Welcome The Elizabethans

The 16th century came with a huge switch to the way in which makeup was allowed to be worn. Very bold, over the top and heavy makeup was flushed over the faces of women, sometimes looking as though they had been a victim to a makeup mishap!

Cosmetics now was a very expensive ordeal, which made wearing makeup specific to certain classes, rather than for everyone.

The makeup of this era was created by the awfully dangerous white lead powder, combined with the materials water and vinegar, in order for women to create crisp, and clear complexions on their faces. However beautiful for a short moment, this concoction would cause health issues such as withered skin, rotten teeth and even hair loss, all just to look beautiful – rather defeats the object in a sense?

An overload of blush was used by the women, just as much as they used powder to pale skin, they would flush the cheeks with red. Pairing with this was dark eyebrows and thus became the flamboyant style of the Elizabethan era.

The Start Of The 20th Century

For women, the rules on makeup decided to date themselves back. Rather than extending further, giving women the freedom to wear makeup however they wish, it now has become a morally questionable accessory.

Those who sat comfortably in the middle class felt as though using makeup was entirely unacceptable to be worn in the society of the time. It was said that makeup was to stay within the hands of those who act against the norm; these were the prostitutes and actresses.

Because of this, any makeup worn came with a series of very negative connotations, so women did anything they could to look their best while staying as far away as possible from any makeup.

Generation Z

Nowadays, makeup is used in the masses. The gender divide is no longer, with young girls and boys globally turning makeup use into practice, with many creating careers for themselves, turning this once cause for beauty into works by contemporary artists.

Makeup now is different from what it used to be 100 years ago. Anyone who uses it now can turn their faces into anything they wish. From dark eyebrows and bold, false eyelashes and sparkling eyes. To highly contoured skin, lip filler, and semi-permanent make-up, there is no extent to how far anyone can go in the world of makeup and beauty in 2019.

Compared to the past, this kind of makeup would get those who use it in severe trouble or would label them with insulting names. But in this generation, anything is accepted, with new makeup styles being created every day!

Kiss i-envy false eyelashes for lash beauty and every style.

Summary

Today, the world and art of makeup and beauty have become a multi-billion dollar industry with people globally devising their own brands, independent salons and even social channels exposing their clear talents to the world.

In the past, makeup was devised to allow a community to look worthy of worship, with the Egyptians changing the appearance to seem more applicable to their gods. Moving onto makeup having to be a discrete, barely-there accessory, or the women would be facing a huge amount of trouble. To now, where every person has the chance to use makeup as a  creative component to their everyday lives, rather than just a way to look socially acceptable.

There is no way to where the makeup world will go next. With technology devising pieces that can take on almost any task, who’s to say that there won’t be a robot applying makeup for us in the next 20 years? Or maybe the trend will work its way back again, and makeup will become something we lack, turning to fresh-faced looks rather than full glam every day.

Where do you think makeup will go next?

We all want voluminous, curly lashes—but one woman is taking that look to the next level. Instagrammer Sofie Petersen gave just raised the bar for crazy eyelashes. The beauty ‘grammer, who has over 28,000 followers on Instagram, has shared a number of photos of herself donning thick, Brillo Pad–looking lashes and has consequently made us all incredibly uncomfortable. 

“When the eyelash curler is broken,” she captioned one particular close-up look at her lashes, with the wacky extension on both her top and bottom lash.

Her posts have received thousands of likes and dozens of comments, but her foray into outrageous eye makeup goes beyond funky lash extensions. She’s also experimented with her look by gluing sticks, mirrors, and even needles to her eyelids.

We’re all for fashion, it’s safe to say that this practice isn’t great for eye health. While more obvious risks include getting some of that material (or a needle) in the eye itself, gluing any object (even false lashes) to your eyelids can take a toll on your natural eyelashes. 

It’s Not Her Weirdest Look Though

Believe it or not, curly eyelashes aren’t the weirdest thing that Sofie has done. As a makeup artist, she specializes in over-the-top and unique eye looks. Sometimes it’s lining your bottom lashes with bright pink mascara, and sometimes it’s attaching rocks to her eyelids to create a beach scene.

Ultimately, Petersen’s looks may be fun for a show, but they should not be tried at home. 

If none of these crazy eyelash looks were for you, would you consider the next nose hair trend?



What’s Next? Nose Hair Extensions?

nose-extentions

Yes, actually, that is what’s next. Diving deep into the world of weird makeup trends from the past year you’ll find the equally-disturbing nose hair extensions. The trend was started by Instagrammer @gret_chen_chen way back in 2017 after she attached fake eyelashes to her nostrils.

The trend was a slow burn and in 2019 other makeup artists started picking up the trend and taking it way too seriously. All we have to say is good luck blowing your nose with those on.

Pictures Of Nike Swoosh Eyebrows On Instagram Prove This Trend Is No Game

For better or worse, you can call 2017 the year of Instagram brows. From super high arches inspired by McDonald’s to bloody Halloween squiggles, the trending looks have been high-brow, low-brow, and everything in between. Many of them have seemed so preposterous, it’s almost as if they were intended as a prank from from get-go. But a sporty new Instagram brow style has emerged, and the photos of Nike swoosh eyebrows ain’t playing. Recently heading up social media by store, pro makeup artist and beauty product extraordinaire Huda Kattan,  who boasts almost 22 million Instagram followers, regrammed a shot of brows shaped in the famous shoe line’s symbol from mua YouTuber @slayagebyjess. The bizarre look features a straight angled brow tail, aiming towards the edge of the face, with the iconic Nike ‘tick’ shape in the middle Slayagebyjess commented:
I really REALLY want to encourage you guys to start your makeup page if it’s been something you’ve been wanting to do, even if you just wanna do it for fun. I know it can be intimidating but honestly I’m so glad I made the decision to start my own. You don’t “have to have” anything to start. You don’t have to have a lot of makeup or camera or even that much skill. In the second slide I show you my first looks I posted and even though I wasn’t bad for everyday wear, I wasn’t anything special at makeup. The 3rd shows you my first phone I used for this page and the phone I currently use. I don’t even have an iPhone and I make it work. And the last shows the only 2 palettes I had and the lashes I started with. I basically didn’t have shit. I’ve had a few people ask me how to start so I thought I’d make this lil thing for you guys. Let me know if you have any other questions, hopefully this helps! 💕
The exaggerated swoosh was created by a staple you may already have in your makeup kit: Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner in Blackest Black ($10). And I’m dumbfounded because the overall effect is kind of… pretty? Maybe it’s the pairing of the unconventional brows with sultry Ardell Double Up Demi Wispies Black Lashes ($5.50), but IMHO, this is one of the cutest and most wearable varieties of the kitshy, drawn-on Instagram brows. On the other hand, Twitter users stand divided on whether or not Nike swoosh brows deserve a victory dance or a long, lonely bus ride home. slayagebyjess_22352317_1766296093663472_5859642225738121216_n I mean, it’s not the most offensive brow look we’ve seen lately, right? Perhaps in anticipation of a following divided, Jess captioned the shot with a challenge: “People: leave the brows alone Me: nah ima just do it ✔ Leave a caption below ⬇ my favorite wins a shout-out.” Naturally, commenters couldn’t keep their strong reactions in check. Over on Twitter, the photo went viral and elicited cries from naysayers. “Nike brows? Nose hair extensions?? What in the actual f*** ?!!?,” wrote user @Nic0leDaNieLLe. In case you missed nose hair extensions, that was another unorthodox beauty trend that caused a massive stir on the interwebs earlier this week.

Nike brows? Nose hair extensions?? What in the actual fuck ?!!?

Many users brought up the fact that brows shaped like the Nike swoop have historically been viewed in a negative light. Most people don’t want ’em, and some others even use the phrase to insult those whose brows they deem inferior. “Some girls are out here doing braided brows and I’m here still struggling to make mine look like they haven’t been sponsored by Nike,” wrote @elyse_carbajal. Tweeter @BBSMoey captures the sick burn perfectly: “But why does her brows look like they were sponsored by Nike??”

However, not all commentary on Nike check brows is negative. User @50imm believes the look is such a win that she wrote, “NIKE SWOOSH BROWS FOR THE GO,” in all caps. Others are celebrating the look for its inherent humor.

Remember, Nike swoosh brows didn’t just appear out of nowhere. These days, Instagram is rife with artistic interpretations of eyebrows, and it has left many a casual viewer unsettled: “I honestly don’t know what’s going on. What are we doing?” asked @Thexzaminer. If you too are also feeling unmoored by Instagram brows, rest assured, you are not alone in your consternation. We’re in this strange, over-the-top territory together.

But if what’s leaving you miffed is a crisis of footwear loyalty, I’ve got comforting news for you: If you prefer Stan Smiths over Air Max, there is also an Adidas brow. Composed of three parallel lines, it features only one of actual brow hair and two completely fabricated extensions. As a fashion editor, I don’t want to pick favorites myself, so I’ll let these two duke it out on the court.

Since so many of our beloved brands are being translated into eyebrow art, perhaps we can start requesting specific Instagram brows looks from beauty bloggers.  I can only imagine what a Christian Louboutin brow would entail. Lol.

For moments both ordinary and exordinary. KIss Lash Couture Lashes!

NIKE brows are the latest bonkers beauty trend sweeping Instagram.  The bizarre look features a straight angled brow tail, aiming towards the edge of the face, with the iconic Nike “tick” shape in the middle. This look seems to be a parody of the bold and heavily arched brows that have become popular with beauty bloggers across the image sharing website – with the heavily drawn on tick drawn in an unmissable black. Some make-up artists have even started jazzing up the sports inspired brow using glitter and fake lashes for a seriously eye-catching look. Others have made their version of the brows even more extreme by extending the flick of the tick much higher up their foreheads. Just Do It Brows 221_n 220_n New Kiss Faux Mink Falsies to Impress Would you try out the trend?? If not like the rest of us, maybe consider it as part of your spooktacular Halloween beauty looks!!



Teeth Nails

Continuing down the trail of nightmare-inducing beauty trends, why not try on some acrylic teeth nails? Manicure spot Nail Sunny shared these teeth nails on their Instagram page and they had us running for the hills. The nails are tediously sculpted out of acrylic and the final product can be chomped together.

Just like Sophie’s different eye looks, Nail Sunny has some other strange posts on the page. It looks like they’ve done everything from gummy worm nails to acrylics with fake babies on them.



Feathered Brows Are Actually Pretty Tame

feathered brows

Of all the bad makeup trends that come and go, eyebrows have seemed to take the brunt of it. In the last few years we’ve seen McDonald’s brows, Halo brows, fishtail brows, and even glittered brows. The latest strange eyebrow trend is feathered eyebrows, which really aren’t as bad as we expected them to be.

Are they weird? Yes. Would we do it to our own brows? Absolutely not. But thick, textured brows have been a big hit with models like Cara Delevingne so we’re willing to make an exception

Unbelievable Benefits of Red Wine on your Skin and Hai

Red wine implicates elegance, sophistication, and involuntarily gives you a royal feeling. It is the effect of the way you hold a wine glass. Apart from satisfying your palate, red wine has to offer some amazing benefits to your body, including your skin and hair.

benefits of red wine on the skin and hair

You might have heard of its benefits on heart health. Well, it can also do wonders aesthetically. You will find a number of skincare and hair care products using red wine extracts as the key ingredient. For instance, there is the red wine spritzer that can help rejuvenate, hydrate, and strengthen the hair strands. Refinery29, Bustle, PopSugar Beauty highlights some amazing red-wine-infused cosmetics and skincare products storming the beauty industry.

The skin of grapes contains Resveratrol, which supplies vitamin E. It can nourish frizzy hair by providing deep conditioning. This ingredient is a great antioxidant source, reduces bacteria, and prevents skin damage from UV rays and free radicals.  

Let’s get to know in detail the benefits of red wine on the skin and hair.

1. Works as Anti Acne

There are anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties in red wine. Resveratrol can fight off acne and inhibits the bacteria causing it. The clogging of pores with oil or dead skin cells allows no chances for your skin to breathe, and this leads to acne. Resveratrol can help open up the pores and function as a potential treatment for acne vulgaris. A study that confirms that this plant compound found in red wine, grapes, peanut, blueberries, and cranberries has therapeutic effects on acne-prone skin.     

Anti Acne

2. Anti-Aging Properties

The antioxidants found in red wine, works as healing property, to maintain youthful skin. The polyphenolic compounds in the wine protect your neurons against early aging. These polyphenols are a category of phytochemicals that can help fight the effects of free radicals and keep our skin healthy and young. The Nutrition Journal reveals that red wine can decrease oxidative stress and increase antioxidants capacity in the circulation. Since the polyphenols slow down cell oxidation, it can help restore the natural glow and gives you radiant skin.

Not an alcohol admirer? Don’t worry, as there are numerous topical options like red wine face masks, creams, lipsticks that claim to hydrate and nourish your skin deeply. Topically applying red-wine-infused skincare products can prove to be more beneficial. Needless to say, a glass of wine can do marvels to your skin and hair.

3. Treat sunburn

Red wine is a remedy to sunburn. Rub some red wine to soothe the sunburn affected area. Using sunscreen regularly is always important. But that fails to protect us at times when the heat is too much. Scientist state that flavonoids found in red wine can impair the UV-induced erythema reaction. It can block the chemical changes in the body occurring due to skin damage. Besides a tube of sunscreen keep your red wine intake or application on point to shield your skin against the sun.   

4. Hair Growth and Shine

Resveratrol is beneficial for hair growth. Regular use of red wine after washing and conditioning can promote healthy hair along with shine. It nourishes your hair, giving it a radiant and smooth finish. Drinking half a glass of red wine in a day can enhance healthy blood circulation in the body. When your scalp also gets good circulation, it allows healthy growth of hair.

Fun fact: you can also clean your false eyelashes with red wine to disinfect it and give it a natural shine.

Sitting by flowers

5. Get rid of Wrinkles

Since red wine has anti-aging properties, it can help fight free radicals. Free radicals cause your skin to form fine lines and wrinkles. Drinking one glass of red wine for women and two for men can keep those wrinkles away. If you wish to use it topically, soak cotton in a bowl of red wine and cleanse your face with it every day. You will see the difference within weeks. It will give more elasticity and firmness. 

Wrinkle free

Even the fashion industry is opening doors to eco-friendly wear by inducing red wine into the garment fabrics. The latest buzz is around fermented fashion that includes clothes made out of wine.

6. Reduces Dandruff

As your blood circulation increases, the blood vessels also become stronger, allowing little chance for dandruff, itchy, flakiness of your scalp. Purchase a bottle of Stella Rosa Black, a blend of different grape varieties and a top-shelf wine. It can be that one choice of wine to last as your favorite forever. For a safer application, you can dilute your wine with water. Avoid getting in contact with your eyes as it can tingle or hurt them. Dandruff on eyelashes is also a common eye disorder caused by bacteria. Use clean false lashes and remember to rip them off gently to avoid hurting or losing your natural eyelashes. 

Flowery

7. Lightens your skin tone

Exposure to pollution around you every day can lead to a dull complexion. If you are looking for a solution to it, spray some red wine on your face to tone down your complexion. Massaging it on to your face three to four times a week can help in brightening and exfoliating the skin. You can store a spray bottle of red wine separately and also combine it with oatmeal or rice flour as a natural scrub to remove dead skin cells. Using red wine for exfoliation of the entire body will also ensure an even-toned skin. Your knees and elbows, which usually tend to blacken with time, can become smoother and gain a lighter tone.

Conclusion

The ways of using red wine are numerous. Apart from drinking, you can learn red wine recipes. But before using it on your hair or skin, consult a dermatologist to check with your skin conditions. Identifying the underlying causes of concern is necessary.

Major Beauty Decisions You Should Make This Year

After many different beauty trends, we have seen over the years, the year before us is all about natural beauty. This doesn’t mean that you should ditch your makeup altogether, but rather that you should focus on gently and subtly emphasizing your best features. If you’re on a lookout for new beauty trends, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to put together a few major ones that will change your life for the better and give you the best results.

Beautiful lashes

While some people are blessed with naturally long and thick lashes, the rest of us have to think about different ways to make ours look as good. There are several ways to achieve that ‘wow’ last effect, and by far the most popular one is wearing several coats of mascara. On the other hand, that can make your eyelids feel heavy and you always have to worry about smudging your mascara, so a lot of girls opt for false lashes instead. These are the best because you can choose a model that works best for you, and you can pick as natural and as ‘over-the-top’ false lashes as you wish. Some girls also choose to get eyelash extensions because these are more convenient and last longer.

Soft lips

Soft, plump lips have always been considered a sign of beauty, and this year, you should focus on keeping your lips healthy too. Lipsticks are amazing, especially the matte ones that have been taking the world by storm, but they also leave your lips dry. To make them soft again, you should apply lip balm and coconut oil to them every night, but first, you should gently exfoliate them. By exfoliating your lips, you’re removing a layer of dead skin cells, making it easier for the nutrients in coconut oil and lip balm to rejuvenate your lips.

Relaxing baths

There is nothing better after a long and stressful day than a long, hot bath. Baths are the best way to unwind and relax while also cleaning your body. You can take this already wonderful experience to the next level by adding different ingredients to our bath. If you’ve been feeling tense and your muscles are sore, Epsom salts in your bath will do wonders for you, and if you’re struggling with migraines, a little bit of ginger will ease the tension. Lavender essential oil will also help people who have problems falling asleep, and coconut oil will make your skin soft and smooth.

Great teeth

A set of pearly whites is something we all dream about, but not many of us are blessed with. Fortunately for us, you can actually get your dream smile if you find the right dental specialist. If you have problems with your teeth, visiting a dentist is a must, but even if your teeth are perfectly healthy, you might not be satisfied with your smile, which is when you should visit a cosmetic dentist and discuss your options with them. There are many cosmetic solutions you can choose from and by working together with your dentist you will be able to get your dream smile.

A healthy diet for healthy skin

If you have skin problems that don’t seem to go away, you might want to change your diet and see if the problem persists. Some of us aren’t lactose intolerant but still get breakouts when consuming dairy products, or we might be eating too much sugar or salt. By eating more fresh fruit and vegetables, you’ll help clear your skin. What is more, you could try swapping your morning coffee with cream and sugar for a cup of unsweetened green tea – not only will it boost your metabolism, but it will help with your skin too. Fresh fruit dipped in honey or dark chocolate is a delicious and healthy snack, and your skin will love it too.

DIY hair masks

Going to a hair salon as often as we’d like isn’t always an option because it would simply cost too much. This is the reason why DIY hair treatments are the best; you get a chance to recover your hair for a fraction of the price. Hair masks are the best way to “feed” your hair with plenty of vitamins and nutrients in about 20 minutes. The best thing is that you can make our own hair masks using the ingredients that work best for you, and you can even make it completely natural and organic. Use avocados, Aloe vera, egg yolk and coconut oil to create a mask that will revitalize and recover your hair and restore its shine.

Trends come and go all the time, and keeping up with them can really be exhausting. If you already have a beauty routine that works, you should stick to it. But even so, it’s a good idea to try something new from time to time because you never know when you’ll find another product or a routine that you’ll fall in love with unless you give it a try.

Simple MakeUp Tips You Ought to Know

Source: guardian.ng

Anyone interested in makeup must be willing to try out new techniques in order to achieve a flawless face beat. These new techniques often times could include Do-It-Yourself (DIY) tips as well as other makeup products which not only hasten the makeup process but at the same time create a more perfect look. Whether for a special occasion or for everyday use, adding these tips to one’s routine can help save money on beauty products, use less, and get the most out of every powder, cream, and potion owned. Here are six beauty tricks to improve one’s makeup skills.

Curling Eyelashes

A model with a flawless face beat.

Often, people make the mistakes of curling eyelashes by merely clamping down the mascara wand and counting to three. Not only does this make an unnatural crease in one’s eyelashes, often times these curls do not last.

Rather, a much suitable option that lasts longer is the pump technique, start at the base of the eyes, pump the wand three times and do the same at the eyelashes midsection. Finally, repeat these pumps at the tips.

Fake Falsies With Baby Powder

Talc Baby Powder.

Despite the cuteness of false lashes, they can, sometimes, be a pain to apply. Rather than having to glue on falsies, try using mascara and baby powder to make one’s lashes longer and fuller. After curling one’s eyelashes, apply one coat of mascara, dip a clean mascara wand or cotton swab into some baby powder and apply along the undersides of one’s lashes. Then apply another coat of mascara. The mascara adheres to the baby powder thus creating dark fibres which cause the lashes to look longer and fuller without falsies.

The Perfect Eyeliner Wing

The eyeliner wing is a timeless makeup look that can make a girl’s eyes pop. The key to achieving this is avoiding harsh lines and achieving the perfect smudge. However, it could be a bit difficult to get the perfect wing with a thick eyeliner. Hence, try heating up the eyeliner by holding a lighter to its tip for about 2 seconds. Allow it cool for 15 seconds before applying with a brush.

DIY Oily Skin Toner

A toner is highly ideal to tame both dry skin and oil patches. It works to sop up extra oil at night and is ideal for skin tone, texture and colour. To achieve the DIY toner, mix a half-cup of apple cider vinegar with one tablespoon of tea tree oil. Add one cup of warm water, all in a clean spray bottle. Spray the toner onto a cotton pad and swipe it over one’s face twice daily. If one’s skin is oily, simply add more apple cider vinegar. If it feels dry, on the other hand, increase the tea tree oil, then follow up with an oil-free moisturiser.

However, if one has a normal or combination skin, try green tea as a toner. Brew a cup of green tea, let it cool, and then pour it into a spray bottle. It keeps for about a month and works wonders for calming redness.

Foundation Application

Kalab Foundation Brush

Liquid foundations could be applied with a blending foam. Yet, it might be a bit difficult to properly blend in one’s foundation using a blending foam. However, a much easier technique is to use a Foundation brush; a stipple brush, a round brush with flat bristles. Just dot the foundation over one’s face, use the brush to press it into pores, and then sweep to blend. It gives a nearly perfect airbrush finish with minimal product.

Exfoliating Lips

Mega matte dark red lips.

Applying lipstick over chapped flaky lips is definitely not a great look. Because lips are made of thin skin, they are prone to drying out and flaking. Just as one exfoliates one’s face and body, one’s lips can use a little bit of that love as well. Use a clean, soft toothbrush to banish flakes for good. Just wet it and run it on one’s lips in a circular motion, taking care to be gentle (there’s no need to scrub). Then, make sure to moisturise well with a quality lip balm. For effective results, this should be done once a week.

In the current world, how you look matters the most. Flaunt your looks actively if you have them. In fact, make-up is amongst the things that enhance your beauty, thus you will look prettier than you are.

Spring comes with fresh and new trends both in fashion and beauty. Some individuals have by now updated their wardrobes. Also, it is the right time to check your make-up bag and if need be, refresh it. 

There are countless stunning make-up styles for you this spring. Fortunately, our post will narrow the search to 5 gorgeous spring make-up tips you must have:

  1. Barely-there base
Barely there

SJ Froom, a makeup artist said, “this is a look that is regularly seen on the catwalks during fashion week because less is more”. “Artists just apply coverage where it is necessary to create a kind of ‘no make-up’ appearance. The flawless base is created by using fewer products while keeping the focus on the features. Therefore, it enhances your complexion without having the feel/look of makeup on your skin”, she continued.

How to apply while at home: SJ instructs you to allow the skincare products to absorb fully before you buff in a slack mineral foundation. This way, it gives you an opportunity to build coverage as needed.

She further instructs that you can use your fingers to hide where necessary for you to have a more skin-like. After that, you can enhance your eyes using a soft brown liner while using mascara for eyelashes. She advises that you can decide to use a natural looking blush as well as a natural lip color for a fresh spring appearance.

Note: Before you apply your base, make sure that the foundation matches your skin tone. 

  • Liquid metal lips

You achieve this look by using metallic cream Eyeshadow as it is long-lasting and provide a high shine.

How to apply it? Sara wren advises you to choose your shade and then paint on your lips. You can mix makeup eye pigments to get the tone that you want and make sure to put on a dress that goes well with the color of the pigment.

Luckily, getting a nice dress to compliment your looks is an easy task these days as there are plenty of girls party dresses available either online or in a shop next to you. Whether you are planning for that birthday party, wedding or any party during the day or night, you will find a beautiful dress for the occasion.

“After achieving your tone, you can top it using a clear balm by patting on using a finger to get a light-reflecting finish which is good for the lips. You can now complete your look with natural and fluffy brows while avoiding mascara to ensure that the look is casual”, Sara said.

  • Glowing skin

Glowing skin and less makeup is amongst the trends that will be big this year. Therefore, you will see more of natural skin with less foundation. Many people do appreciate spending less on beauty routine even during spring.

The most important thing to do for glowing skin is to make sure that your skin is healthy. For that reason, engage in a solid skincare schedule for beautiful, shining skin through the spring season.

Working out is another great thing for glowing skin. You can get on your bodybuilding workout clothes and join a gym nearby where you get all the tools/equipment for HIIT. It’s a proven fact that working out flushes out toxins, carries oxygen and nutrients to the cells and makes your skin healthy.

  • Drawn on dolly lashes

“Take a thin eyeliner brush to draw bold and short strokes on the eyelids above your eye crease. This gives you eyelashes look-like. You can flick them out headed for your eyebrows to achieve an over- overstressed lash outcome”, Sara said.

“Many couples of false lashes can be layered on top of one another and then apply to both your bottom and top lash lines. Use mascara to generously coat your false lashes if you need heavy looking eyelashes”, she concluded.

  • Contouring with concealer

Many people usually contour using highlighter and bronzer. However, a major contouring trend this spring is using concealer. It is advisable to have creamier products than the powder formulas for a subtler appearance.

Use a concealer that you prefer to contour as well as highlight your face to flawlessness. You should use several concealers and remember you should use a lighter shade for highlighting and a darker shade for contouring.

Ensure you choose a transfer-resistant and waterproof concealer so that it will not disappoint. Also, buy one concealer that is about 2-3 shades lighter than the skin tone and another that is 2-3 shades darker than the skin tone.

How to apply: Apply your foundation and on the shadow areas of your face like under the cheekbones, along the jawline, under the bottom lip, and around temples apply the darker shade. Then, illuminate the high points using a lighter concealer.

Lastly, blend the dark and light areas altogether. First, blend the areas with lighter shade before blending the areas with a darker shade. Blending is an important part as it will help you realize subtle and natural-looking highlights and shadows.

Conclusion

Spring is a season to explore minimal makeup looks with vibrant color, but keeping your look natural and soft. The above makeup trends are simple and you can do them by yourself.

Apart from make-up trends, spring also comes with fashion. There will be stylish and beautiful dresses (official and casual/party dresses). Regardless of your style, there will be plenty of dresses ranging from mesh to off-shoulder. Some dresses are sensitive to a person’s shape. For that reason, it is crucial to settle for a dress that goes well with your shape.

Nonetheless, it is good news that there are waist-training-corsets that help you achieve a slimmer waist so that you can fit in a dress of your choice. Also, the corsets are available in different sizes, material, and styles to make sure that your needs are well catered for.

This absolutely brilliant hack will revive your false lashes in seconds

Source: glamourmagazineh

As much as we love the length, intensity and drama-for-days that our beloved false eyelashes give us on a night out, we don’t love throwing a set away after a single use – especially when we shell out up to $20 a pair.

Good news for false lash lovers, then, because you can in fact clean and reuse your lashes to take advantage of their full lifespan.

Facebook Group, 5-Minute Crafts, have shared a super simple hack for giving your lashes a clean that takes less than half an hour, using a makeup staple most of us have on our bathroom shelves – micellar water.

By filling a small bowl with micellar water and leaving your lashes to soak for 15 minutes, you can wash away all traces of mascara, glue and grime from a day’s wear.

All you have to do afterwards is leave the lashes to dry on a piece of kitchen roll to soak up excess water, before combing them through with an old mascara wand.

If you’ve a little more time on your hands, celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg, who’s worked with the likes of Rashida Jones, Kaley Cuoco and Busy Phillips, shared her failsafe way of cleaning your high street false eyelashes that should give us around a dozen wears per duo.

The secret, according to the makeup pro, is to “treat them like the dishes”, and get in the habit of washing them after every use.

In the first instance, soak a cotton-bud in a water-based eye makeup remover, and carefully wipe any any excess glue on the strip. “An oil-based remover will warp the lash,” she explained to Refinery29. “It can also leave a residue on the lash that might interfere with the tackiness of the glue or cause your makeup to run when you wear them next.”

Next up, it’s time to thoroughly clean the lashes themselves. Greenberg advises sandwiching them in between two tightly wound, makeup remover-soaked cotton buds and combing through to the tips with an old mascara wand. Once the lashes are completely dry, mist them with 96% or 99% alcohol to kill any bacteria, and place them back in their cases

Lastly, go easy on the mascara application when it comes to reusing your false lashes, as thick coats of product can be incredibly difficult to remove, and can even distort the shape of the lashes when cleaning.

“Cleaning falsies — and keeping their shape — becomes incredibly hard when trying to cut through coats upon coats of mascara,” she notes.

Here’s to a long and happy lash life.

Athleisure

Athleisure is a trend that almost no one, regardless of their personal style, has been immune to. There are several reasons as to why this is so. One of them is the convenience – athleisure allows you to transition from one daily ‘role’ to another without having to change outfits. Another is supreme designs that make creating these comfortable yet versatile outfits possible and finally, there is the immense evolvement of the trend which has created an environment in which every person can inject as many or as few athleisure elements into their outfit, and hence follow the trend while still fostering their signature style. So, with this kind of possibilities when it comes to variety and ways in which athleisure can be rocked, the fashion sky truly is the limit, so let’s see how fashionable New Yorkers have put their imagination to use and created amazing athletic combos.

Unexpectedly alluring

 

source

Well, this is definitely new, and we’ve witnessed plenty of quirky athleisure moments. One of the fashionistas of NYC was spotted rocking cut-off shots and the newly trendy cowboy boots, with her leopard print duffle bag in hand. The surprising athleisure twist is to be found in the two-toned logoed sweatshirt, which makes this look completely different than it would have been with a button down or anything else for that matter. Just when you think the cowboy style and athleisure could never mix, here they are, alive and stunning. This is bound to go global, we are sure of that.

The power of suits

oversized suit

The oversized suit has been all the rage for a very long time, along with a shirt with just one side tucked into the pants. We cannot get enough of the look and wish everyone would suit up. However, now, instead of the killer heels you have the fashionista and designer stamp of approval to rock your amazing New Balance sneakers, and essentially have your cake and eat it too. It’s office-appropriate, what with the looser dress code and everything, and it looks comfortable and chic on the streets as well, so it’s a double win. All you need is a chic designer bag and you’re golden.

Simple and classy

Now this is an athleisure look almost any woman could pull off whether she’s headed to a fashion show, a brunch, running errands or even having lunch at a nice restaurant. A trendy net bag – one of the remains of the summer, paired with a simple but gorgeous green knit sweater dress and a delicate pendant just for added chicness. The look was completed with a pair of simple running shoes that take nothing away from the overall casual chicness yet make the look a whole lot more interesting.

The upside down

all yellow

source

As said, sneakers aren’t mandatory in order to exude athleisure vibes. You can be wearing a traffic-stopping sporty yellow rubber ensemble with a pair of block-heel mules and still look chic and athletic at the same time. Monochromatic rubber outfits have been all the rage ever since Calvin Klein released the famous yellow rubber dress and we have to admit, they look amazing albeit we don’t know how breathable and comfortable they are. But hey, sometimes you have to suffer for fashion and that’s just the way it is.

Romantic athleisure

Gucci sneaker boots

source

This version might just be an absolute favorite, because it allows you to create the perfect amalgamation of the romantic and dressy components and those more athleisure-inspired ones. Case in point – a gorgeous and delicate skirt with floral embroidery, a matching embroidered crew sweater, a chic bucket bag with round handles and then boom – chunky Gucci sneaker boots. The juxtaposition of the utter romance against the harshness of the sole on the shoes is incredible, and despite everything, it seems to work, and we for one are in awe of the bravery and vision. All this look is missing is a great red lipstick, and some amazing false lashes in order to exude those glam romantic athleisure vibes.

In the original form

Then again, there are times when you either can’t be bothered or you simply foster that laid-back look but you still want to be on point and on trend – what do you go for then? You pull off a Bella Hadid, put on a simple black crop top, knee-high cargo pants, throw a fanny pack over your shoulder, leave the hair nonchalant and free and top it off with a simple green jean jacket. Effortless athleisure at its finest.  

The hard to miss

neon hoodie

source

The neon colors have been insanely popular ever since the fall lines were introduced, and people seem to have finally snagged their neon hoodies and fleece jackets. It is a part of the whole athleisure movement, which did give people the freedom to dress however they want, and many have embraced the ‘traffic cone’ look. One such fashionista is the one wearing what seems to be a neon orange hoodie with a few intricate details, wide black pants and open-toed block-heel boots. This is definitely a strong look, its wearability outside the fashion week realm is up for debate, but within this crowd, it surely blends in, poignant hue and all.

The final takeaway – sneakers look good with everything and athletic attire looks great even without sneakers. We promised the sky is the limit and NY fashionistas helped us prove it.

All about that lash life.​

 

We all love the drama, intensity, and length the our beloved false eyelashes give us when out and about at night or daytime. What we really don't like is tossing them in the trash after one use. Specially when you shell out $$$ for a pair.

Well we have some great news for you lash lovers out there. Yes you can actually clean and reuse your falsies.

A popular Facebook group called 5-Minute Crafts have shared a super simple hack for giving your lashes a clean that takes less than half an hour, using something that we all have in our bathroom shelves- micellar water!

By filling a small bowl with micellar water and leaving your lashes to soak for 15 minutes, you can easily wash away your mascara, grime and adhesive for your day.

After your all done all you have to do is let your lashes dryon a piece of kitchen roll to soak up the extra water before you comb them with an old mascara wand.

Got a little more time on your hands ? Celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg, who's worked with the likes of Rashida Jones, Kaley Cuoco and Busy Pillips, shared her failsafe way of cleaning your high street false eyelashes that should give us around a dozen wears per duo.

The secret, according to the makeup pro, is to "treat them like the dishes", and get in the habit of washing them after every use.

Wait for the lashes to dry completely and carefully mist them with 96% or 99% alcohol to help kill any bacteria and put them back in to their cases.

For the last suggestion, try to take it easy when applying mascara when reusing your falsies. The thicker the coat the more difficult it will be to remove it and can cause distortion of the lash shape when cleaning.

"Cleaning falsies — and keeping their shape — becomes incredibly hard when trying to cut through coats upon coats of mascara," she notes.

7 Best Ideas To Organize Your Makeup

Some women have so much makeup that they probably need many drawers to put them in, but putting your makeup in drawers does not get to be appealing enough. You should be able to find the stuff that you want, instead of looking inside all the bags/drawers. With shadows, sprays, powders, lipsticks, gels, polishes and what not, the makeup collection can be huge, and even a modest collection can get out of hand if you are not organized. Organizing your makeup can take a while, but when it is done, you will feel so much better. It will also enable you to throw away the products that have expired, or you do not need anymore. So if you also have a large collection of makeup getting to be organized, here are some ideas for you.

1.Purse Organizer

Tabulating your makeup at home is one thing and then taking it along with you when you are traveling is another. It is better, if you keep a makeup bag that is specifically designed to keep your makeup products. Whether you are enjoying a night away from home or mobilizing a picnic trip with your children, you will end up digging through your purse for something. There is no point unloading the entire purse to find that lip liner or mascara because it is maddening, especially when you are in a hurry. You should start thinking in regards to the best purse organizer for makeup and accessories, so your trip away from home is not spent finding and putting back those false eyelashes.

2.Glasses/Jars

Empty glasses and cups will always be an easy and convenient place to put your makeup in. These glasses can be your old water set or can be some decorative pieces. If you want to make your glasses look exquisite, you can paint them with water paint or some other kind of paints. If there are no glasses available, you can always use mason jars and mount them on a plank of wood and onto your wall. This aforementioned idea will be handy, especially if your dressing table does not have enough space on it. If you like the smell of coffee, fill these lasses with coffee beans. You will enjoy the coffee smell, and they will hold your brushes in an upright alluring position. These glasses will be useful in storing your different types of blushes, eyeliners, and mascara.

3.Test Tube Rack

While putting your lip glosses in a jar seems like a reasonable solution, a better way to plot your lip shades would be; by putting them in a test tube rack. You may not have a test tube rack lying around in your house, but it does not mean you cannot get creative with your storage in the bathroom. Forage your house and all the local antique stores, thrift shops and estate sales, and you will find something resembling a test tube rack. This rack will be the best place to put your brushes, lipsticks and nail files in. All your stuff will remain neat and organized, and you can pick them up in a jiffy whenever you need to.

4.Lazy Susan

If you have a lot of nail polishes, put them on a Lazy Susan! Display it on your countertop to add some color, or place it somewhere else. Either way, you will not have any problem finding your favorite nail paint.

5.Sushi Mat

Who knew that sushi mats could only come in handy for making sushi? Get creative and intrigue a new orchestrater for your makeup brushes. There are unambiguous types of blushes available now, each one for your eye-brows, your lashes, cheeks, and eyes, that it can be ominous to keep track of them all, as they can go missing easily. Take an old sushi mat and fix some elastic in between the sticks. This way you can place the brushes separately. This mat will come handy while you are traveling.

6.Old Plastic Bottles

This is another solution that is similar using glasses/jars, except these carriers will be made of plastic. If you have any old plastic water bottles lying around, you can make them useful. Instead of throwing the bottles away, just cut them from the middle, and orchestrates the transformation of them into cool storage pots. You can either put your eyeshadows in them or your false eyelashes. If you get to have indubitable bottles of different colors, then you can use them and bring those colors to your dressing table.

7.Pocket Shoe Organizer

If you do not have enough space on your counter, or you don’t have a counter at all, and it is just a huge mirror on the wall, you should get a pocket shoe organizer. No counter space, no problem because now all your lipsticks, eye pallets will go in those pockets on the shoe organizer. Hang it bathroom door or closet, and use your makeup products as you need them. There are many inexpensive shoe organizers available in the market so you can get one easily. There will be more pockets in it than you will probably need.

Organize your makeup with these creative ideas and make your life easier!

Common Mistakes You’re Making When Using an Eyelash Curler

Keep calm and curl on.

When I was 15 and rummaging through my mother’s vanity, I found an odd-looking contraption that turned out to be an eyelash curler. I immediately starting using it to make my eyelashes pop. Fast-forward a decade later and I use an eyelash curler regularly, but I'm not at all sure that I'm using it properly. How long am I supposed to squeeze my lashes? Do I use it before or after applying mascara? Does it make a difference if I spend $10 or $25 on one? Is it OK to use one every day—or have I been inadvertently damaging my lashes all this time?

Despite their scary appearance, eyelash curlers aren’t dangerous—but they do need to be used the correct way so you don't accidentally pull out lashes or pinch your eyelid (ouch!). I spoke with makeup artists Andrew Colvin and Carly GiglioStila Cosmetics manager of pro artistry, to get the lowdown on all the mistakes you could possibly make with an eyelash curler and how to stop them.

1. You’re not making eyelash curling one of your first steps.

Experts like to curl lashes before makeup, as part of skin-care prep. This will help open the eyes and also to see the eye shape a bit better. Besides, Colvin says, “If you’ve done a perfect undereye concealer or perfect liner, you wouldn’t want to risk smudging it with the lash tool.”

2. You’re not using a good quality curler.

If you plan on curling your eyelashes, you want to use the best tools possible. Stay away from curlers that have a slippery grip, as they can get caught on your eyelashes and pull them out. The KISS i-ENVY Professional 360 Flawless Lash Curler is the MVP for both our experts. It has a matte finish, which Colvin says gives a better grip than curlers with a smooth finish. Giglio likes this eyelash curler because “it seems to fit the curve of the lash line perfectly while giving a smooth curl.” It can grab the width of the entire lash line, she explains, whereas some others are more curved and they don’t reach as many lashes. If you're looking for a slightly more budget-friendly option, another eyelash curler that our experts recommend is Ardell Precision Eyelash Curler.

3. You’re not holding the eyelash curler correctly.

Place your thumb and index fingers in the designated grip holes, then open the curler wide enough for your top lashes to fit between the rubber cushion and metal top, Giglio says. Get as close to your eyelash roots as you possibly can without touching the skin. Tightly squeeze and close the curler onto lashes.

4. You’re not using proper technique.

Colvin recommends pumping your curler four to eight times at the root, then pumping up along the lashes to reach the tips for a final curl. “This gives a ‘curve’ and less of a ‘crimp’ that pumping the lashes [a number of times] in the same spot would result in,” he says. In other words, a crimp would result in the eyelashes getting bent into an L shape rather than a gentle curve. How long should you hold the curler on your lashes? Giglio recommends clamping down and holding tight for about five seconds.

5. You’re applying too much force.

Slow and steady is the name of the game. Squeeze the curler gently instead of pulling your lashes outward or crimping, says Colvin. If you have a good lash curler, you don’t need to apply a lot of force. Squeezing too vigorously can break off lashes or pull them out.

6. You’re not heating your eyelash curler.

Heating your eyelash curler will help lock in the curl. You can add heat to your eyelash curler prior to curling by holding a blow-dryer close to it for a few seconds. Of course, be sure to blow on the metal curler before applying to lashes to avoid burning yourself! This trick also works if you have coarse lashes that won't curl easily. Another option is to use a heated eyelash curler. Colvin likes the Ardell Eyelash Heated Curler, a ceramic rod which he says is great for styling coarse lashes.

7. You’re applying mascara before curling your eyelashes.

Experts say this is probably one of the most common mistakes you can make when using an eyelash curler. Instead of giving yourself more volume or lift, mascara can make lashes sticky and possibly get pulled out by the curler, Giglio explains. Applying mascara after curling can also help hold the lashes in place, and a good curling and volumizing mascara will help maximize your curl. She swears by Ardell Splash Party Waterproof Mascara Noir which has a lightweight formula that won’t weigh the shape down created by the eyelash curler.

8. You’re forgetting to curl those hard-to-reach eyelashes.

Some eyelashes will be harder to reach than others. Instead of trying to squeeze them all at once, Colvin recommends using also a mini lash curler for getting those hard-to-reach lashes on the corners. He likes JAPONESQUE Heated Mini Lash Curler and Giglio is a fan of the Lash Star Individual Lash Curler, $24, which she uses for those tricky lashes that don’t fit into the grip of the regular curler. “I mainly use these on the lashes towards the inner corner and outer corner of the eye,” she says.

9. You’re using a dirty eyelash curler.

All makeup tools need to be cleaned regularly, so not cleaning your eyelash curler is a big no-no. Using one coated in dried, crusted mascara can result in damaged lashes or styes, Colvin says. He recommends cleaning the rubber cushion and metal once every two months with a makeup wipe. For a deeper clean, you can wash it with dish soap and set out to dry overnight.

10. You’re using an old rubber or silicone insert.

Replace the rubber cushion on your eyelash curler once it starts to wear down, which tends to happen about every three months, depending on how often you use it, Giglio says. Using a dried-out crusty insert won’t give you the best possible curl. Pro tip: Swap out rubber inserts for silicone ones, which Colvin says last longer. He recommends silicone inserts from brands like Surratt, Kevyn Aucoin, Shiseido, and MAC.

11. You’re applying fake strip lashes before curling your eyelashes.

Put your fake lashes on after you've done your curling and you won’t have to worry about the pressure indenting your falsies. However, if you have semi-permanent lash extensions, Colvin recommends staying away from your eyelash curler entirely, as you won’t get the same degree of curve. “The [extensions] get indented a lot more under the pressure of the curler than the natural lash hairs,” he says. “This leaves you with two different rows of lashes.” Probably not the look you're going for!

12. You’re curling your eyelashes right after a lash lift or keratin treatment.

A lash lift is like a perm for your eyelashes, and it creates an upward shape that you’d get from a really good mechanical curler. Lash lifts should last six to eight weeks, Giglio says, but notes the duration will depend on your individual lashes. "These treatments are good for people who can’t use a curler because their eyelashes are too short or straight," she explains. However, if you're able to use an eyelash curler and want to do so following a lash lift, wait until "you start to see the curls not be as heavy as they first were," which may be the "last one or two weeks of the treatment," she says.

The same caution applies to keratin treatments for eyelashes, also known as keratin lash lifts. "A keratin lash lift also lifts and curls, but it is more long-wearing and makes your eyelashes even fuller (think of it like a keratin treatment for your hair)," explains Giglio. Keratin lash lifts should last 8 to 12 weeks. You should only use your eyelash curler toward the end of the treatment, and be gentle, pumping your lashes with care.

13. You’re worried that using your eyelash curler every day will cause your eyelashes to fall out.

As long as you're using a clean curler and curling instead of crimping, experts say it’s totally safe to use your eyelash curler every single day.
