My ''Smokey Sparkly Night Effect'' versus ''Engagement Wedding'' Makeup Looks

Hi people, I'm here again today. Been a few days since I dropped a line ;) . I've been working on preparations for my Makeup & Jewellery training which has been taking a lot of mind work.

I haven't been writing but my brushes definitely haven't been on strike. So, today I'm going to be sharing some pictures of some of my work & my brushes & colour palettes in action. Will also tell you how I achieved the look and the products I used, so sit back and enjoy but don't forget to drop me a comment or commend my work & please do ask questions.

The first look I'm going to share is what I call the ''Smokey Sparkly Night effect''. This look should be worn only on night outs or for photo shoots by models.

Caring For The Skin Around Your Eyes.

The skin is very delicate, especially the areas around your eyes.Not only harsh weathers but several other factors can affect this delicate area causing blood vessels to show, shrinking of the skin, puffiness, redness or bags and also, dark circles developing under the eye area.

- Shrinking of the skin around the eyes can be as a result of dehydration of the skin. In order to avoid this, make sure you wash your face thoroughly every night and use a mild cleansing product or a few drops of baby shampoo to cleanse the eye area especially if you have very sensitive skin. A moisturizer, preferably one containing hyaluronic acid should then be used and properly massaged into this area until its completely absorbed by the skin.

Choosing The Right Foundation....

Every lady wants her face looking perfectly blended and flawless when she's going out. well, there's only one way to get that flawless looking skin if you don't already have it. Buy a good foundation.

Foundation is one makeup accessory you don't want to stay away from. It helps brighten up your face, especially when your skin is stressed. Lots of ladies already have one of these in their makeup bags/purses but using it is usually a problem. Its either because they got the wrong shade of foundation, thereby making their face too white or dark. Sometimes, buying the wrong product is usually the problem.

For me, the best bet when it comes to foundation is either Mary Kay (above) or Maybelline (below) matte wear foundation. I've heard people make comments about these products, saying they aren't the best for our weather. well, you all are wrong. These foundations come in different shades and skin tone blends that suit all kinds of skin colour, so all you need to do is pick the right shade.

How To Groom Your Eyebrows Perfectly 3

I'm some people are wondering why I'm not giving you tips on how to actually apply your eyebrow pencils or 'draw' the perfect brows instead of the long stories on face shapes, types of eyebrows, arch's e.t.c...
Well, you can have perfectly groomed eyebrows that still won't fit your face shape and that's just wrong.

Since I've been able to put you through choosing the perfect brow shape that best suits your face shape, I'll move on to giving you tips on how to achieve those perfect looking eyebrows.

Firstly, you need to know the outline of your eyebrows. In the diagram, angle A shows the inner corner of your eyes which is directly above your eyes. If yours is not that full, you can always fill it up with your pencil. Angle B is the arch and that's were your brow bone is located, so make sure your arch is well elevated and above the brow bone. Angle C is the outer corner of your brows and ensure not to extend yours beyond what is shown in the diagram.

How To Groom Your Eyebrows Perfectly 2

Hi beautiful ladies, I'm sure most of you have been able to identify your face shape by now. The next stage is determining the perfect brows for your face shape.

Round Face: If you have a round face, emphasizing the arch of the eyebrows will help give you a more narrow-faced appearance by drawing attention away from the width of your face. Your eyebrows should have a high arch and extend to the end of the cheekbone.

The first stage of eyebrow grooming is to identify your face shape. This is also the first stage to creating the most beautiful look. So ladies,make sure you have no makeup on, pull your hair back and away from your face, sit in front of a mirror and start analyzing.
