Ways To Make Your Eyes Pop
- If you have a hard time using soft eyeliner pencils, draw a thick line onto your hand, use a stiff eye brush to pick up the pigment and then apply to your eye.
- Use a flesh colored liner on the water rim of your lower lash line to make eyes look bigger and brighter.
- Apply highlighter onto your brow bone.
- Apply concealer to your under-eye circles after foundation (not before) to better camouflage them.
- To correct eye makeup mistakes or sharpen a cat eye, dip a Q-tip in eye makeup remover and erase the offending makeup.
- To make your eye color stand out, apply black liner around the entire eye, including the water line.
- Instead of swiping on eye shadow, press the color into your eyelid with a brush or finger. This will give your lids a more pigmented look.
- Keep a clean eye shadow brush or Q-tip in your purse. Whenever you touch up your makeup, run it over your lids to get rid of any excess shadow that has collected in the crease.
- Use blue eyeliner to make the whites of your eyes appear brighter.
- Apply eye cream under the eyes and onto the lid before applying your makeup. It will make it go on smoother.
- Use coconut oil as an all-natural eye makeup remover. It’s gentle, yet effective.
- Never use an eye shadow that’s the same color as your eyes or nothing will stand out.
- If you wear glasses, go with a lengthening mascara instead of a volumizing one, which can look clumpy when magnified by lenses.
- When applying mascara, as you move the brush up slightly turn it outward to fully separate lashes.
- Layer individual false eyelashes along the top lash line. Use black mascara on the top lashes and brown on the bottom.
- Don’t layer different mascaras, as some formulas don’t work well together, making clumps inevitable.
- Highlight under the eyes to brighten the face and bring attention to the eyes.
Tricks To Prevent Split Ends
Change The Way You Shampoo
When applying shampoo and conditioner, concentrate the products on the ends to strengthen the hair shaft. Also opt for strengthening shampoos and conditioners. The shampoo strengthens strands while the conditioner binds split ends together to lessen the appearance of breakage. Another trick: rinse with cool water to seal the hair’s outer layer to strengthen.
Brushing your hair when wet can cause breakage if you’re not careful. Make sure to detangle strands with a wide-tooth comb. When removing tangles gently brush hair from bottom to the top , in order not to create any Static or Frizz which can cause breakage
Hide Breakage With Oil
Frizz and flyaways make breakage look more prominent. Hair oils applied throughout strands or even just at the ends smooth out breaks and create a more even-looking finish. To prevent oil residue, pour a dollop into your palm and dab on fingertips.
Heat Style Less Often
Over-styling with curling irons and straighteners is the main cause of split ends. To protect hair from heat, apply a leave-in conditioner. Stocked with keratin proteins, the conditioner coats the hair to seal breaks. When blow drying, aim the nozzle at the roots and the mid-shaft. Because the tips of hair burn more easily, let them air dry.
