  3. 3. Basic Liquid Concealer Tutorial Even if one has clear skin and does not need any foundation, putting on some concealer is still a must. It covers the smallest flaw or imperfection to make your skin glow and naturally look fresh and smooth. The least opaque but, the concealer that gives off the most natural effect, is the liquid concealer. If you need minimal coverage then this is the way to go. To start off, treat your face like a clean canvas. If you are using liquid foundation, apply concealer after. Don't cover your entire eye with concealer because it will appear way too cakey. Just apply it on the hallow of your dark circles and your eyelids and gently blend. After blending, again apply the highlighter on the hallow of your dark circles. A highlighter has light reflecting off the area putting a brightening effect on your eyes. Also, to brighten up your eyes more, apply a bit of highlighter on your brow bone. This will instantly brighten up those tired eyes. If you did it right, your concealer should look natural. In fact it should look like you do not have any concealer on at all. Quick Recap:  Liquid concealer gives off the most natural effect.  Don't cover your entire eye with concealer, just on the hallow area or your dark circles.  To brighten up your tired eyes, apply a bit of highlighter on your brow bone. 3
  4. 4. Basic Eyebrow Tutorial Eyebrows make or break your face. Very short, very thin, very thick, or even very bushy eyebrows change your whole face proportion. First step in shaping your eyebrows is to identify your natural brow shape and work with it to achieve a natural look. Some of the basic eyebrow shapes are round, angled, soft angled, curved, and flat. Each has its own effects such as round eyebrows which makes the face appear rounder, the angled which gives off a youthful effect, soft angled which appears to be more subtle and feminine, the curved eyebrow gives off a professional look, and flat eyebrows make the face look more oval. In finding your natural brow shape, first, using a pencil, you have to measure where your eyebrows start. Now measure where your arch or eyebrow curve should naturally be, it should line up to your iris. Then, measure where your eyebrow should end. Mark the area using white eyeliner. Next, eliminate the excess hair by drawing over it, this way you get a preview on how your eyebrows would look like without plucking them. When you’re satisfied with how your eyebrows would look like, follow the white eyeliner guide and pluck the excess eyebrows of the marked area. Once done with the plucking, wash off the white eyeliner and do a spot check if ever there is still excess hair. Then, fill it in with an eyebrow powder using an angled brush. It is highly recommended that if you have dark hair go three shades lighter and if you are blonde make it two to three shades darker. 4

Now measure where your arch or eyebrow curve should naturally be, it should line up to your iris. Then, measure where your eyebrow should end. How to Apply Liquid Eyeliner Applying liquid eyeliner is quite trickier than using an eyeliner pencil. First of all, a wrong curve or a shaky hand can smudge the whole look. Here are some tips on how to apply liquid eyeliner and accentuating your eyes. I recommend using L’Oreal Lineur Intense Carbon Black or Mac Boot Black Liquid Eyeliner. For starters, both have felt tips which are highly recommended for first- timers. To prep up for applying liquid eyeliner, you can look down into a mirror so that you can see the full range of your lash line and take out your eyeliner and hold it like a pen or pencil while writing. The best way is to position your hand holding the eyeliner like you’re about to write on your lash line. Some start working on their liquid eyeliner from the inner to the outer eye corner and vice versa, I suggest that you start from the middle all the way to the outer eye corner. But, whichever manner it may be, it still depends on where you are comfortable in. In applying the liquid eyeliner, it is suggested to first lay it onto the lashes and little by little make tiny lines until the area is covered. Once you have the outlined your upper eyelid lashes, you add a few strokes near the outer eye corner to make a relatively thick illusion. It really helps if you have a light hand in applying to avoid very dark and smudgy results. 5
  6. 6. Not all liquid eyeliner applications produce the same results for everyone. It’s also best to try everything out, such as having a flick at the end or a thick lining, and find which one accentuates and matches your eye shape. Quick Recap:  The best way is to position your hand holding the eyeliner like you’re about to write on your lash line.  In applying the liquid eyeliner, it is suggested to first lay it onto the lashes and little by little make tiny lines until the area is covered. Contouring with a Pencil Eye Liner With the variety of eye liners in the market, there’s pencil, liquid, gel, and cream, there’s really no telling which is better than which. It all depends on which one you’re comfortable with and which one gives off the effect you want to achieve. Eyeliner is all about line quality and defining the eyes. The line should appear thinner from the start of your eyes, but gradually thicker as it advances towards the corners of your eyes. Some girls just directly apply the eyeliner, however I find it hard to maneuver around because the eyelids have many folds and skin textures that you need to inevitable smooth it out to have an even surface for the eyeliner. One cool tip before putting on eye liner is to create an even smooth patch of skin for easier application. One way of doing this is by getting a Q-tip and gently pressing it onto the skin. Applying concealer and foundation beforehand also helps in keeping the eyeliner last longer. It is also recommended that instead of having a one-stroke method, it is recommended to use smaller strokes to create a solid fluid line. This way, mistakes 6
  7. 7. are minimal and very fixable because you are in control of the line. Smaller strokes are better for people with shaky hands. It also helps create beautiful line quality, which is the thick and thinness of the line. The volume of it can really make a difference. If you apply eyeliner with just one constant thickness, it will look very boring, but if you apply it in smaller strokes and create a thinner line in the start of the eyes, and thicker on the way back it will create more depth and volume. As for the direction of application, you should start from the middle to establish the thickness of the eyeliner. The easy part is to apply the thin eyeliner in the front, but the hardest part is to measure how thick the eyeliner should be in the back. Quick Recap:  Use smaller strokes to create a solid fluid line. This way, mistakes are minimal and very fixable because you are in control of the line. Tips on Applying False Eyelashes Eyelashes makes one’s eyes look bigger and fuller, and, most of the time sensually inviting. For women who don’t have naturally long lashes, false lashes are a must. Here’s a guide on how to put on false lashes and still make it look natural. First of all, pick the type or length of false eyelashes you want. Make sure that the lashes you have chosen fits your eyes. To start off, apply a thin layer of liquid eye liner. This covers any space or small gaps if ever the false lashes move or don’t fit perfectly. After which, it is recommended to curl your natural lashes and apply mascara. You won’t be able to do this once the false ones are put on. When you have prepared your natural lashes, place a drop of glue, preferably Duo Surgical Glue, on the lash container. Use the back of tweezers to apply a thin layer of glue to the lash band, concentrating on the ends. Apply just above the lash line and wait 20 seconds or so for the glue to become tacky. Then, use 7
  8. 8. the back of the tweezers to push the lashes on and down so that it is close to the lash line. For finishing touches, add a line of liquid liner over the lash band to cover any glue and make it look seamless. Quick Recap:  Make sure that the lashes you have chosen fits your eyes.  Use the back of tweezers, not your fingers, to apply a thin layer of glue to the lash band, concentrating on the ends.  Add a line of liquid liner over the lash band to cover any glue and make it look seamless. How to Make Your Eyes Appear Brighter and Larger Too much work and stress can really put down a beautiful face. Here’s a helpful guide to make your eyes appear brighter and larger to pull off a fresh, clean, and on-the-go look. Begin with putting on foundation, concealer, and powder on your face. Take a white or pearl eyeliner and line the lower rim of your eyes. Pearl eyeliner is less intense looking than white because it looks more natural. You can use either and test which works best for you. You can take a Q-tip and clean off any excess white eyeliner. Also, if it forms on your lower eyelids and cannot get them all off, we can cover them with mascara. Once you’re done with the eyeliner, use a light eye-shadow, preferably silver, over your entire lid. This gives your eyes color. Also avoid dark colors because dark colors advance while light colors recede. Now take the same silver eye-shadow and apply it on your upper brow bone. If you need to, this is a good time to shade in 8
  9. 9. your eyebrows. A basic rule of thumb, three shades lighter for dark haired and three shades darker for blondes. Line your eyes. Make sure the line is very thin. The look we are trying to achieve is a very bright clean look. Then, take your eyelash curler and curl your lashes. Now, here is where the magic happens. Many girls who use white eyeliner tend to not apply mascara on their bottom lashes. The trick is, when you apply black mascara on your bottom lashes, this helps open up your eyes. Quick Recap:  Take a white or pearl eyeliner and line the lower rim of your eyes.  Use a light eye-shadow, preferably silver, over your entire lid to accentuate your eye color.  Apply very thin eye liner and black mascara on your bottom lashes to help “open” your eyes. How to Achieve Smokey Eyes Having smokey eyes has been a fashion trend for quite a while. From totally dark to soft and subtle touch, smokey eye makeup has definitely got into everyone’s to-do list. Some of the celebrities popular for sporting different variation of smokey eye makeup are Katherine Heigl, Eva Longoria, Kim Kardashian, Fergie, Keira Knightly, Beyonce, and of course, Avril Lavigne. Like in any makeup session, first off is to prep the face with a fresh foundation or face powder. Now take the eye shadow sponge applicator with the eye shadow, for this tutorial I recommend using Lancome Color Design Sensational Effects Eye Shadow Smooth Hold Metallic Designer. Find where your eyelid crease is and outline and fill the crease using the eye shadow. Stay within the eyelid area. 9
  10. 10. Now, to create the smokey look, take a clean eye shadow brush and blend the eye shadow line you have made. Blend in by following your natural eyeball socket. Make sure to emphasize the outer eyelid area so that the outer corner of the eyes would appear accentuated. Then, apply another layer of the same shade on the lower part of your eyelid. This helps darken the smoky eye. Again, take the brush and blend. Now take the eyeliner and line your entire eyes. Line as close as you can to the lash line and inner rim of your eyes. Don’t worry if it looks sloppy because we are going to smudge it. Now take the eye shadow sponge applicator and smudge the eyeliner. Once you’re done with the eyes, darken your eyebrows. Dark eyebrows give your smoky eye look give off a more dramatic effect. Then, take your eyelash curler and curl your lashes, then apply the mascara on the top and lower lashes.

  11. 11. Aside from having seamless makeup, a look wouldn’t be complete without the perfect lipstick to match with it. Here’s a guide to achieve a perfect red lips using, of course, the classic and timeless red lipstick. First of all, make sure that your lips are clean, conditioned, and moisturized. It’s also good to exfoliate your lips if it’s dry or chapped so that it’ll be smooth when you apply the lipstick. Then, you get a red cream lip liner, preferably a MAC Red Enriched Lip Liner, which is better for blending and it also lasts longer, and line your lips. Apart from outlining your lips, it is also recommended to fill in your lower lip with the lip liner to make the color last longer. Also, when lining your lips, make sure that you open your mouth so that the corners will also be covered. Once you’re done with the lip liner, it’s now time to use your lipstick. To match the liner and achieve beautiful red lips, it is recommended to use Classic Dame Mattine Lipstick. To make the blend very precise, you might want to use a lip brush. You can leave it matte or add gloss. If you want to add gloss, you can use red or clear gloss, and add it from the center. The last trick is putting concealer around the lips. This makes the lips pop out or make a natural pout. Aside from red, you can also use a variety of lipstick colors as long as the colors complement each other. Quick Recap:  Use a lip liner to both line and fill your lips as well as the corners to make sure that the color stays longer.  Use matte lipstick and blend with the lip liner. If you want to add gloss, you can use red or clear gloss, and add it from the center.  Apply concealer around the lips to achieve a natural pout. Bonus: The Lady Gaga Poker Face Makeup Tutorial 11

Using Lise Watier Quads in Les Carbons, apply the gray shade on the outer pockets of the eyes. Then, bring down the color to the crease. Make sure to blend everything evenly using the MAC 217 brush.

Now, run the lash over a thin strip of glue and wait 20 seconds for it to become sticky. Take the lashes, bring it in as close to the lash line, and put it on the middle of your eyes and adjust it accordingly. Secure it in place and slowly pat it in. 12
