Monochromatic Makeup Two Ways

Makeup trends, as any other trend, have the tendency to come and go. And as far as matching makeup trends are concerned, well they’ve been around the block a time or two. Perhaps you remember the trend of matching your lips and tips (painting your nails to match your lipstick). Another popular matching makeup trend involved matching the color of your eyeshadow to the color of your clothes. Well, there’s a new matching makeup trend in town: monochromatic makeup.

As the name suggests, the idea is to keep the makeup on your lips, cheeks, and/or eyes all within one shade of the same color. The idea sounds strange at first, but once you see celebs like Kylie Kardashian, Josie Canseco, and Rihanna rocking the look you’ll totally want to give it a try for yourself. We know you’ll love it because – although it might seem tricky – it’s one of the easiest trends to pull off!

There are two different ways that you can rock the monochromatic makeup trend, and the same rules typically apply to each; The first way to wear the monochromatic makeup trend is by matching your eyes and lips, this is also the most popular way to wear the trend. Another way us to sync up the colors of your lips and cheeks. If you’re not sure where to start, the first thing you can do is gather all your makeup together in one space, your lip color and eyeshadow pallets, along with your blush and bronzers. Now group together similarly shaded colors; if you’re trying the trend for the first time, it’s easiest to pair shades of red, pink, brown, or beige.

Many makeup artists favor the monochromatic makeup look when it’s worn on the eyes and lip, as this tends to be the easiest way to achieve a look that is enjoyable to look at. To maintain the most fluid look, try using colors with the same undertone that are only shade or two different (darker or lighter) from each other. Keep in mind that the slight variation between the eye and lip color is important – going with two extra bold colors might be more of a statement than you’re looking for. One way to go about this might be with a salmon colored eye and a pale peach colored lip.

Believe it or not, women have been wearing the similar colors on their lips and cheeks for years now (just think of your go-to lip and cheek rouge). With that in mind, the very same color and shade can be worn on both the lips and cheeks without making too much of a statement. In fact, many women use cream based lip colors to pull off this very look – all your need to do is swipe the smooth pigment onto the apple of your cheeks, use your fingers to blend the color, then apply to the lips. If you want to apply two different shades that’s okay too! When doing so, keep in mind that the trend looks it’s best when the cheeks are brighter than the lip.

Choosing The Perfect Date Night Outfit

Choosing the perfect date night outfit is always a feat; whether it’s your first date or one hundredth, it’s likely that you’ll go through an hour’s worth of wardrobe changes leading up to the special night out. To save you some time and prevent some stress we’ve pulled together four no-fail date night outfits.

Like our Favorite Instagram Filter – Black and White
Not only is the black and white combo a classic, but it leaves lots of room for you to personalize the look by adding whatever kinds of accessories you’d like. The black and white look that we had in mind includes knee length, shirtsleeve dress (some call this a t-shirt dress while others refer to it as a shift dress). The dress should be white, as the “black” in this black and white duo is a black leather jacket. You can give the look a modern touch by wearing beige or gray shoes paired with a similarly colored bag. Give the look a chic touch by accessorizing in black instead!

Layer Your Mini
A great way to show your modesty is by pairing a non-cleavage bearing mini dress with a trench coat. Trench coats are “in” for women of all ages at the moment, plus they’ll keep you covered if you have to face chilly, winter weather. Another great element of the trench coat is that it can show off your figure without being over-flaunting. Some style experts recommend wearing a dress in the same color as the coat to create a sense of unison when your jacket is on, off, or just unzipped.

Loose Fitting and Laid Back
Dates can feel tense, right? So why not take some of the edge off by wearing a loose fitting and laid back ensemble? Don’t worry, we’re not suggesting that you wear your sweats to happy hour, but we do think that giving your favorite pair of jeans a night out is a good idea. You’re your most loved boot cuts make a statement while keeping your nerves low key. Top the denim with a simple tank that shows off just the slightest bit of skin. The great thing about this outfit is that it allows you the option of adding your personal touch to it many ways. You can add some glam by slipping on a stack of bangles or wearing a beaded necklace. You can also choose to wear pointed heels or scalloped flats.

black mini skirt

Little Black Leather
Everyone is obsessing over the black leather skirt right now, and we totally can see why! Leather and black have almost always made great date night staples, so why not bring them together for a sweet date night ensemble? Now, many people are rocking leather as a fitted mini skirt these days, however, for date night we want to give the suggestion of being a bit more modest and wearing a black leather pleated skirt. Not only is this much comfier, but with its hem at the knees, you won’t have to worry about pulling your skirt down every few steps. No matter what skirt you choose the perfect way to top it off is a black long sleeved sweater. We like the idea of nude flats for this outfit, but a set of heels would look great too.

Be Your Own Makeup Artist

Makeup artists have a talent unlike any other. In addition to using their tools to enhance and modify the appearance of a person’s features, a makeup artist can instill a sense of confidence into a person – how rewarding! Wouldn’t it be nice if you could have your makeup done by a professional beautician every time you wanted to leave the house? As desirable as it seems, we also know this falls into the “unrealistic” category for many women. We got to thinking how can we help you feel like you’ve had your makeup professionally done, without the professional – but without too much thought, we realized that the question pretty much answered itself. You don’t need a makeup artist to achieve professional looking makeup; what you need is the tips and tricks of the trade! We reached out to industry experts who shared with us a handful of the best-kept secrets a gal needs to become her own makeup artist.

Primer and Powder
Basic products you’ve used forever, right? We can guarantee that you haven’t been using them to the best of their abilities, though! These two products were designed to make makeup last longer. Typically, you apply primer first and foremost, work through the application of all other products, then swipe on some finishing powder. However, there’s an even better method of application for the pair of products. From now on, apply a layer of finishing powder right after priming! Having these power products together allows them to give you the maximum benefit. If you know it’s going to be a long day, don’t stop with the powder there. Dust a light coat of powder on after every layer of makeup. This ensures you a strong hold to last for hours.

Practice
There isn’t one makeup artist who will tell you that they created a perfect look on their first try. Whether someone went through cosmetology schooling or is a self-taught YouTube guru, they’ve spent hours and hours practicing the craft of makeup application. Set aside time in the day to practice applying makeup just as you would for another skill you wanted to master.

makeup brushes

Basic Brushes
If you don’t already have a set of quality brushes, now’s the time to splurge. There are a fair amount of quality brushes that you can pick up at the drugstore, however, you should have a set of eight basic brushes in the best quality you can get your hands on. Almost any professional will tell you that without quality tools, they couldn’t get their job done; a carpenter needs steady bolts to hold a house up, a mechanic needs feature oil to make a car run smoothly, a hairdresser needs worthy sheers to create a desirable look, and a makeup artist needs quality brushes to create an outstanding finished look. There is a total of eight basic brushes that you should have on hand: a foundation brush, concealer brush, puffy powder brush, blush brush, and a blending brush (a small one will do), as well as a flat eyeshadow brush, an angle brush, and a lip brush.

Use Brushes Adequately
One of the biggest mistakes the average woman makes is using the wrong brush for the job – and not by mistake either! For whatever reason, we grab the most convenient brush (or use the same brush) even if it’s not the proper brush for the product being applied. Each brush is designed for a specific purpose, use it for the purpose!

Makeup Application and Cleansing Tips That Avoid Tugging & Wrinkles

Aging is an absolutely inevitable part of life – the sooner one can accept this, the better. That being said, some of you may have accepted that you will grow old and wise, but you just don’t want to endure wrinkles before you have too. Wrinkles – beauty’s clock – are a sign that the skin is losing its elasticity. While this is a natural process and is bound to happen to anyone with skin, there are a handful of things that you may be doing to speed up this process, including the way you apply your makeup in the morning and remove your makeup at night. The good news is that there are ways to avoid tugging and pulling on your skin!

woman removing makeup

  • One of the hardest habits for a girl to break is pulling on her eyes while applying makeup. At first thought you may be thinking I don’t do this, but think again. Think about the process that you go through when applying eyeliner to your waterline, drying a cat-eye along your lash line, and even applying falsies or mascara. Chances are that you’re either pulling the skin on your brow bone up or tugging the skin at the corner of your eyelid outward. This needs to stop!! You can apply makeup just as effectively by tilting your face in different directions while you apply your makeup. Just try to keep your hands off your face as much as possible.
  • Taking off as much makeup as you can at night is essential…but aggressiveness and roughness are unnecessary. It can be frustrating when you want to go to bed after a long day and your makeup just isn’t cooperating, but when you start rubbing and scrubbing to speed up the process you can be doing more harm than good. In fact, when you start putting elbow grease into removing makeup, you are tugging and pulling on the delicate facial skin. Doing so can cause broken blood vesicles, irritation, and puffiness – all of which can lead to wrinkles. Instead of rushing the process, use this time as a practice of incorporating patience into your otherwise fast paced life. When removing makeup, let the cleansing solution really soak into the product; hold a warm washcloth over the solution and close your eyes for a few moments while the cleanser does its thing. By the time you’ve taken a few deep breaths your makeup will wipe off with of any aggressive scrubbing or tugging.
  • You may already know that the skin naturally produces natural oils to make up for what the outer layers of skin are lacking.  One of the benefits of the skin’s natural oils is that it keeps the skin smooth and supple; when the skin is dry it doesn’t fare well and tends to wrinkle faster. It’s important to understand this concept as it applies to washing your face. When you over wash (especially with harsh chemicals) you are stripping the skin of its natural oils, drying the skin out and increasing the likelihood that wrinkles will form sooner rather than later. The takeaway point here is not to over wash. Simply wash your face to freshen up, but don’t get sudsy more than you need to.

Find Your Signature Shade of Lipstick

If you’re like most women, you probably have a bag or drawer containing a variety of lipsticks. Some of which have a glossy finish and others are matte,  some are classic colors while others are more trendy. In fact, in your entire lipstick collection, you could probably point out – very easily, too – the colors which you wear all the time and those which you’ve not touched more than once. This happens because we as women, tend to fall in love with the way something looks on another person (i.e. a specific shade of lipstick), but are quick to notice when something doesn’t look quite right on us. Of course, we’re not likely to consider how well a color will suit us mid-makeup haul, which is exactly why we end up with the unused, almost forgotten lipsticks.

The good news is, you can avoid buyer’s remorse by simply learning your signature shade of lipstick. Perhaps you have some sorts of an idea, simply from the colors that you favor, however, if you read through the tips below you will be able to pinpoint the color that’s perfect for you.

lipstick

What Color are Your Unders?
Undertone that is! The first part in figuring out which lipstick shade suits you best is to identify whether you have a pink or yellow undertone. If you’re totally confused on how to figure it out, there are a few simple key identifiers for each. Pink undertones are typically described as “cooler,” the veins on one’s wrist and ankles appear blue and is best accented with silver jewelry. Yellow undertones, on the other hand, are described as “warmer,” with veins which appear as more of a green color, and is best accented with gold jewelry. If you still can’t seem to define your skin’s undertone, it’s possible that you have a neutral undertone. Neutral undertones have veins that could be called green or blue depending on the lighting, and pair nicely with both gold and silver jewelry.

Work With What You’ve Got
Now that you can define your skin’s undertone you should use this when deciding on a shade. But what does this mean for you? Those of you who have a pink undertone should choose lipstick colors that are cooler, such as shades with blue or purple tones. On the other hand, if you’ve determined that your skin has a yellow undertone, then you should stick to warmer colors, such as shades with peach or brown undertones.

One thing to keep in mind when choosing your signature color is to avoid the colors that offer a pale hue. No matter how popular the trend may be at the time, it’s almost guaranteed that you will look back at your selfies in horror! Lipsticks with a gray or ashy appearance are great for Halloween and maybe for a fun night out, but it would be unwise to choose such a color as your signature lip color. Doing so will give the appearance that you are unhealthy and ill.

Makeup Products That Do Double Duty

Beauty and skin experts today have a wealth of knowledge that, when implemented effectively, can make a major difference in our health and beauty for years to come. From applying SPF daily and drinking ample amounts of water, to exfoliating regularly and toning after washing, professionals have consumers reaching every product to serve the advice. On the one hand, there’s no denying the benefits one can reap by using a slew of products every day; the task of actually incorporating so many skin and beauty products into a regular beauty routine, on the other hand, can become daunting, to say the least. Wouldn’t it be nice to have just a few products that can get the job done? Fortunately, there are! So, rather than getting overwhelmed with a growing collection of products, keep your beauty must-haves at bay with these makeup products that do double duty. Not only will these products multitask for you, but they will save you time and space!

Acne Fighting Concealer
Whoever coined this idea deserves some sort of recognition because the idea is simply genius. The main reason that concealer is applied is to hide acne; while masking blemishes, this product goes above and beyond by fighting and killing bacteria. Of course, it’s not going to clear your acne, but it will certainly make a difference in the pimple’s healing process.

BB/CC Cream
Chances are you’ve seen, read about or even used BB or CC cream in the past, but do you know why these creams are so popular? This Asian based beauty product has your back by working overtime; by applying a single, even layer of BB cream, you’ll be applying a layer of moisturizer, SPF and light coverage foundation. Slightly different, CC cream provides all the same benefits of a BB cream, as well as a color correcting base which does a little more to blur imperfections. Talk about a time saver!

Makeup Cleansing and Removing Wipes
At first glance, it may seem that removing makeup is truly the only job for the pre-moistened clothes, however, there’s more than meets the eye! In addition to removing makeup, these wipes are equipped to clean up dirt, oil, and pollutants as well. This means that you can use them as a quick refresher in the morning before putting on makeup or even after a workout. Makeup wipes are also great for fixing makeup mishaps such as smudged lipstick or smeared eye makeup.

lip balm

Lip Balm
Bound to surprise a few of you, lip balm wasn’t just meant for your tween days. It’s a great option to heal and protect your lips while adding some shine and even some color. Another great color-related aspect about lip balm is that, unlike traditional lipstick, you can swipe it on as often as you please without having to worry about the color staining the skin around your lips.

Facial Spray
This hard-working product is truly underrated! With just a spritz or two, many facial sprays tone, set and hydrate. The key to making sure the spray you choose can multitask is to make sure that it has either rose water or witch hazel (and if you can find one with both then that’s even better).

Easy Makeup Brush Cleaning Routine

Chances are that at this point, your nothing short self-taught makeup pro. You know which brush to use for what, you can create a perfect smoky eye with only a moment’s notice, and – let’s be honest – all your gal pals have been coming to you for beauty advice. The one thing, however, that makes your makeup ability less than its best: your unfamiliarity with the best practices of cleaning makeup brushes.

makeup brushes

Before we get into the brush cleaning basics, there are a few things you should know as to why washing your makeup brushes is a vital part of any beauty routine. When you get dolled up for the day your brushes take quite the beating. Regardless of the brush you’re using or the makeup you’re applying, small amounts of makeup, dirt, oil and bacteria become embedded in the bristles of the brushes. No big deal, right? Wrong! Over time all the debris trapped in the brushes can lead to clogged pores and cause all kinds of breakouts and other infections. In addition, the gunky build up in the brushes can lessen the brush’s ability to properly apply and blend your makeup, not to mention it can be problematic to the integrity of the bristles themselves which will ultimately shorten the life of the brush.

Fortunately, you can prevent the spread of bacteria and encourage the longevity of your brushes by cleaning them on a regular basis. Some makeup experts recommend doing a quick clean after every use of the brush. You can do this with a daily brush cleansing spray, being sure to give the bristles a spritz after each use. If you’re interested in a more natural alternative, simply mix two parts rubbing alcohol, one part witch hazel, and five drops of tea tree essential oil to a small spray bottle. Give it a good shake and you’ve got yourself a natural daily brush spray.

Of course, giving your brushes a quick spritz if a good preventative, but you should also be giving them a deep clean every one to two weeks (depending on how frequently you wear makeup). Doing so is easy! All you need is a small bowl (perhaps a spice dish), baby shampoo, and a lint free cloth. In the bowl mix together one part shampoo and one part warm water. Begin by getting the bristles of the brush wet with lukewarm water. Be sure to focus on the bristles only, as the water will weaken the glue inside the handle, causing the brush to shed, and even break over time. Once the bristles are damp, swirl the brush around in the shampoo, then twirl it around on the palm of your hand to give it a good lather. After a few moments, you can rinse the bristles under water again; you may notice that the water does not rinse clear. If this is the case, you should repeat the shampooing process until the water does rinse clear. Finally, give the bristles a good squeeze and lay them flat on the cloth to dry.

Use Bronzer For A Winter Glow

One of the best parts of summer is the golden glow that the sun leaves on your skin. On the other hand, when winter comes around a natural looking glow is rare. In fact, if we were to gather a group of women into a single room during the snowy season, it’s likely that we’d see one of two things – that is: women who appear totally pale and are embracing it, and those who are pale but hiding it with unseasonable bronzer. However, you don’t need to fall into either one of these categories because – believe it or not – bronzer can be worn for a fresh winter glow, when applied correctly that is. We’ve talked to a few experts in the business who’ve given some tips on using bronzer to achieve that winter glow you’ve been longing for.

woman applying makeup

  • Picking a color that suits your unique complexion is more important now than ever before. In the summer, a shade or two off doesn’t make a major difference since the sun is already giving your skin some color. In the winter, one or two shades off can be a major mess.
  • Chose the proper base color for your skin color. Those with a darker complexion should stick more towards brown and orange shades. On the contrary, those with lighter skin are better off with a golden shade. Above all else, remember that the men and women working at makeup counters are there to help – if you’re unsure of which color suits you best, ask!
  • When applying bronzer in the winter, you should be applying it to your face as well as your neck and chest. Nothing screams “notice the tan my makeup gives me” more than a glowing facial complexion just inches above a pale neck and chest. Color consistency is key when adding a summer tint to your winter skin tone.
  • Remember where you get a glow on those sunny summer days; the sun naturally falls on specific areas of the face more than others, think back to the areas of your face that tan (or burn) first. That’s where you should be applying bronzer to maintain a natural look. If you have no clue where the sun kisses your face, focus on adding some color to the temples of your forehead, the apples of your cheeks, along the bridge of your nose, and the center of your neck.
  • Some people prefer an allover radiance, opposed to a contoured glow – that’s okay too! If less guess work is more your speed, all you need is some liquid bronzer and a separate bottle of your daily moisturizer. Add just two or three drops of bronzer to your moisturizer and give it a good shake. Simply applying your moisturizer will give you the summer glow you’ve been looking for without worrying about too many specifics.
  • Don’t forget to follow up your bronzer with some blush. Whether you prefer to blend the two colors together before application or apply them next to each other is totally up to you. Just remember that doing helps the glow look more natural, rather than a work of art courtesy of your makeup bag.

The Lip and Cheek Stain Comeback

At first thought, a stain of any kind might sound like the last thing you want. However, the 90’s lip and cheek stain trend has made a comeback, and we certainly hope this beauty trend sticks around for a while. Like most of us, your grandmother may have spent years reiterating to you how to remove wine stains from the carpet or coffee stains from your blouse, but chances are that no one’s ever told you how to properly apply a stain to your lips or cheeks – until now, that is. That’s right, we’re going to explain to you how to properly apply stain to your lips and cheeks. The hope is that you’ll take what you’ve learned, put it to use, and get the most out of the stain product that you possibly can.

woman applying lip color

Pre-Stain
Before applying lip or cheek stain, it’s ultra important to exfoliate away any and all dead skin cells. This is important because of the thin consistency of stain products; in other words, because it’s so thin imperfections (such as cracks or dry patches) appear much more evident than if you were to apply a crème based color or lipstick. Although we recommend exfoliating on a semi-regular to regular basis, it’s a good idea to give the area of application a quick scrub right before applying the product. Slough any dead skin off your lips with a bit of brown sugar. Give your complexion the boost it needs by using your regular face exfoliator the morning or night before you plan on applying cheek stain.

Prevent
In addition to exfoliating dry skin before application, you should always apply a nourishing lip balm or face crème before application of the stain. One of the reasons that lip and cheek stains are so potent is owed to the high alcohol content in the product. This highly concentrated drying ingredient is the last thing that you want to put on bare lips or skin, especially after you’ve exfoliated. Depending on how much time you have, we suggest applying a semi-thick layer of nourishment immediately after exfoliation and letting it soak into the pores for a few minutes. Once you notice that the product has saturated the skin, go ahead and apply another thin layer of moisturization.

Layer for Longevity
While the lip and cheek stain is bound to last, it’s not always going to last in the precise manner that you applied it. When wearing a lip stain, there are two things you should layer with the product. The first is a lip liner; although the lip stain should go on with ease, it’s unusual for it to glide on as easily as lipstick or lip gloss. On the other hand, if you’re applying the stain to the edges of the lips and make even the slightest stray mark, it’s not going to wipe off. Avoid all mishaps by lining your lips with a corresponding lip liner before applying the stain. The second product that you should layer with a lip stain is a similar shade of lipstick or lip gloss. It may seem redundant, but applying a thicker product atop the stain holds in moisture for a few extra hours. Not to mention, by the time the top color wears off, you don’t’ need to worry about touch-ups, because the stain is still there. As for cheek stain, you’ll want to apply your primer and foundation prior to application of the stain. After you’ve used a brush to blend the stain, make sure to give it an even hold with a setting powder.

Look Great When You Work Out

As the new year takes off many adults will sign up for gym memberships and group fitness classes with the goal to change their lifestyle for the better. While it can be difficult to muster up the motivation to work out, many would argue that it’s harder to feel good about the way one’s self looks while working out. It may seem silly at first, but if a person is hitting the treadmill at the gym to lose weight they may be uncomfortable with the way that they currently look. Taking that lesser confidence level in a room full of other people (many of whom already attend the gym regularly) can be tough.

Maybe this scenario sounds familiar to you. If so, we want to commend you for your efforts to incorporate more fitness into your lifestyle! To show our support, we’ve put together this guide to give you all the information you need to look great when you’re working out. Although we can’t promise that you’ll look like a supermodel, we can promise that the tips below will help you feel more confident which will ultimately help you look your best.

Wear a  Properly Fitted Sports Bra
 Every single one of us is built differently – and that’s okay, it’s what makes each of us different from another. That being said, a single sports bra isn’t going to fit everyone the same way. While it may be a hassle, set aside some time to go shopping and find a sports bra that fits you. If you don’t know where to start, ask a salesperson for help. Explain to them your concerns so that they can best help you in finding a sports bra in the proper size and support you need.

Choose Breathable Materials
While working out in your favorite sweats and an old tee shirt might seem like a good idea, it’s probably not the best. When hitting the gym – or engaging in any sweat-inducing activity, really – it’s important to wear breathable materials. Not only will this prevent sweat stains from occurring, but it will wick away the heat and sweat from your body, which will ultimately encourage you to go the extra mile.

Wear Your Hair Up
No matter how much you like to wear your hair down, it’s not in your best interest to do so during a workout. If you choose to wear your hair down, it’s almost guaranteed that it will end up in the corners of your lips, sticking to any sweat on your face and neck, and in a funky looking mess by the time you’re finished working out. Avoid this problem altogether by wearing your hair in an updo! Go for something simple, secure, and low maintenance such as a high ponytail, French braid, or messy bun.

Break The No-Makeup Rule
Although many people swear against wearing makeup to work out, some of us feel much better with a little extra coverage. We’re not suggesting that you get all dolled up for a workout, however, we’re saying that there’s nothing wrong with adding some color to boost your confidence. When working out, it’s best to use mineral makeup, as it’s less likely to clog your pores.
