The Perfect Summer Smokey Eye

Putting together perfect summer makeup looks that provide the “WOW” factor is easy. All it takes is a little creativity and the use of a color that will sizzle from start to finish. Eye shadow is an easy way to draw attraction to your eyes without overpowering your face. If applied correctly, you can create daily looks that will keep you on the radar for stunning eyes. Choosing the right colors that blend with your skin tone is key. You also want to have colors that are able to effortlessly blend into any setting.

While there are a number of summer colors that will attract attention, for the look of a professional makeover, you want to use the color bronze. Bronze eye shadow is versatile, sexy, and works with every eye color to deliver stunning looks that quickly go from day to night.

No matter what the event or setting, this look will integrate with any outfit to set a new standard in summer makeup looks. This combination works in the office or at dinner. Here are a few tips to create the perfect summer smokey eye:

  • Using a medium bronze color, apply the shadow from the lash line to the crease. Make sure to watch the application and not be too heavy-handed. This sets the foundation for the look and gives you an idea of whether or not you want to have a darker or lighter effect.
  • Using a good black eye liner, smoothly darken the lash line, blending upward. Repeat this process underneath the lash line for a dramatic effect that will make your eyes pop.
  • Apply a shimmer shadow. You can create your own by blending a copper shadow a few shades lighter than the bronze across the top lid to add dimension.
  • Create depth by outlining the existing shadow application with a matte brown color starting from the inner corner, traveling around the entire eye.
  • Apply two coats of Luminess Infinity Long Wear Black Mascara to finish the look.

You can repeat this process until you get the technique right. You may want to add a little variety for a light or dark smokey eye to fit the occasion. These tips will help you create beautiful eyewear looks that will blend perfectly with your beauty cocktails foundations for a flawless finish. Using the Luminess airbrush system will assist in fooling even the best of critics. Having beautiful eyes can make a difference in your confidence and presentation. Using this technique will add to your collection of winning eye looks. Just because you aren’t a professional doesn’t mean you can’t have professional looks. We’ve given you the formula – you can take it from here to achieve results that work for you.

Perfectly Thick Lashes Every Time

The eyes are one of the first things people see, so enhancements to make them pop is an important part of any beauty regimen. One of the most common beauty features is the eyelash. Using just a little bit of mascara can give you a dramatic and dreamy look that will take you through the day. Here are a few tips for having thick and luscious lashes that mirror a professional makeover each and every time:

Prep your lashes

There are a few things that must take place before you even think about applying mascara. Prepping is part of a standard beauty regimen that will ensure you receive the best results from your makeup application.

Curl your lashes

Curling your lashes will help the mascara affix to your lashes in a smooth and definitive manner. Using an eyelash curler, start at the base of your lashes, avoiding the skin. Hold in position for at least 10 seconds, moving the curler to the end of the lashes. Do this twice on both eyes.

Use a lash primer

A lash primer will help the mascara affix to your eyelashes better, providing a foundation for thicker, longer lashes over a larger area. This also helps condition the lashes while providing a richer finish. With primer, you can avoid the mascara from flaking or smudges. Most primers are white, helping you to properly apply the mascara to your lashes. Apply the primer to your eyelashes just like you would apply standard mascara.

Trace the waterline of your upper eyelashes

When getting started, to have the most professional look that will maximize your lashes, trace the upper waterline of the eye. You can accomplish this by briefly holding up the eyelash line, running the eyeliner at the top of the inner waterline. This will provide the illusion of thicker lashes.

Reach the base of lashes with mascara

When you start to use the Luminess Infinity Longwear Mascara, you want to start of the base of your lashes for the best effect. Looking straight forward, you want to apply the mascara in a sweeping motion to keep the curled effect. Apply two or three coats to provide a thick, lush appearance.

Remove excess clumps

Once you have applied your mascara, if there are any clumps, hold the mascara wand vertically and gently brush it across your eyelashes, simulating a windshield wiper. This will help remove any clumps, leaving beautiful, thick lashes.

These tips can help you achieve beautiful results, giving you the look of a professional makeover in the comfort of your home. Using the Luminess Infinity Longwear Mascara will give you depth and dimension for thick and fuller lashes, each and every time!

Cool Ways to Use Concealer

The beauty industry makes their profit from a variety of products, but there are a few items that have multiple uses. Concealer is a beauty staple that can be used in a variety of ways. Most women use concealer to cover blemishes, dark circles or skin tone that may appear uneven. Concealer is used underneath or on top of the application of Beauty Cocktails foundation with the Luminess airbrush system. Although this is the general use, there are a few other beauty secrets and ways to use foundation that most people don’t know. Here are a few beauty tips that will enhance your beauty regimen while keeping your budget intact:

Longer Lasting Lipstick

You can use concealer on the lips to make your lipstick last longer. Evenly apply a light coat prior to putting on your lipstick and let it dry. This will help your lipstick color pop and reduce feathering while adding a level of dimension to your lips. You will achieve the appearance of fuller lips without the need for eye liner.

Deeper, Fuller Lashes

You can use concealer as a lash thickener or primer prior to applying your coats of Infinity Long Lash Mascara. This will condition your eyelashes and help deepen the color. Apply the concealer with a clean lash brush, extending the concealer to the tips. This adds volume and depth with immediate results.

Natural Eye Shadow

Concealer can be used as a natural eye shadow to give your eyes a quick pop without the use of color. This will provide a smooth, neutral finish that will accentuate the eyes. Finish up with mascara and liner for an everyday look that works.

Beautiful Skin Highlighter

Concealer can be used to highlight your blush for a rosy finish. There are two ways to do this:

  • You can dot the area with a few drops of concealer, blending it into the skin. Add a powder blush to the area with a blush brush for a great finish.
  • Blend cream blush and concealer together to add a warm finish to your face. This will provide a toned, natural highlight while providing the illusion of an inner glow.

Knowing the different ways to use beauty products can work wonders when you’re on the go or you only have certain products in your makeup bag. Concealer is a product that can help enhance those on-the-go trips or emergency situations when you need a refresher and don’t have access to your beauty tools. Being creative with certain products like concealer can help you in a pinch while still giving you the quality looks of a professional makeover.

These are just a few cool ways that concealer can enhance your beauty secrets and feel like a pro. When putting together your makeup bag, you won’t have to have a bunch of products to get the same result – you can just use one!

Makeup Color that’s so in – Try it in teal

Eye makeup is so versatile and creative, giving you a number of options on how you want to present yourself on any given day. When putting together your dazzling looks, try looking beyond standard eyeliner, embracing the wide range of beautiful colors that are available. One of the hottest looks on the market today is the color teal.

Why?

Teal provides variety, is subtle, sexy and mysterious at the same time, depending on how you apply it. The color teal is fun and funky, and has an appeal worth watching. Here are a few tips:

It’s all in the shadow

Using a tropical teal eye shadow is the perfect look for any summertime rendezvous. Even in the winter, when you’re feeling a little blah from those cold, wintry days, teal will always bring out the best in your mood. If you’re one of the lucky ones who lives in a tropical climate, teal can always be your go-to color to make a beautiful statement. Either worn alone or with a mix of other colors, teal eye shadow will compliment any outfit or ensemble you put together. It’s a definite winner!

Line me Up

Using eyeliner in a variety of ways is no beauty secret, but you can be versatile in color! Use teal eyeliner on your top lashes or on the waterline for a breathtaking effect that will last for hours on end. It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it – with teal.

These are just a few beauty suggestions. Play with teal eye shadow and liner to come up with personalized looks that are just for you!

Blush Vs. Bronzer

What’s the difference between blush and bronzer?
Bronzer is generally used to create a tanned look as well as for light contouring on the face. Blush is used to give your cheeks a naturally flushed effect.

In which order should they be used, and where?
Use your bronzer first, and blush second. I apply bronzer slightly underneath the cheekbones to, on the tops of the cheekbones, a light sweep across the forehead and a little under the chin to lightly contour. Then I add blush to the apples of my cheeks.

So you can use blush and bronzer together?
Of Course! The best trick to making your cheeks the perfect color is to apply bronzer and blush together. The combination of the two gives you the most natural finish possible.

Can bronzer help accentuate your cheekbones?
Absolutely, it just needs to be applied to the correct areas. Applying a darker bronzer under your cheekbones is a great way to help make them stand out.

What’s better, matte or shimmer bronzer?
When applying bronzer to the tops of your cheekbones, a shimmer such as our Shimmer Bronzer adds a hint of glamour to your beauty look. A matte bronzer is more suitable for contouring.

How do I know if I’m wearing the right shade of blush?
If you look overly embarrassed, you’re not on the right track. Try to choose a color that isn’t much darker than your natural skin tone. Never forget that when in doubt, less is always more!

Creative Ways to Line Your Lids

When wearing eye makeup, there are a number of creative ways to add a dramatic flair that will attract attention to your eyes. Eye liner offers a variety of colors and options that will help enhance your eyes for a different look every day. For some cool, creative looks, here are a few options:

Cat Eye
This is also known as an elongated eye. Using a cream liner, draw a line from the middle of your lashline to the outer edge of the eye. Apply the liner at the corner of the waterline, connecting the tip.

Winged Tip
Apply the liner with an angled brush from the inside of the top lid, outward at a 45-degree angle. Voila!

Bright Eyes
Apply light beige liner to your waterline (lower inner rim) to make your eyes look larger and brighter while alleviating tired and red eyes.

Colored Bottom Liner
Make a statement by using a bright colored eye liner with a long wear pencil. Apply the liner to your waterline to make your color last for hours. 10-second beauty at your service!

Lining Upper Inner Rim with Black to Define Lash Line
This is a part of the eye that is most neglected, but can draw quite a bit of attention to the definition of your eyes with a natural look. Lift your upper lid while looking down at a mirror and quickly apply with a few strokes for this unique look.

Smudged Wrap Around
Like the smoky eye look? This is a quick and easy way to achieve it. Using a black kohl pencil and an angled brush, line your lower inner rim and place a lint along your upper lash line from one side to the other. Connect the lines at the edge. With the brush, smudge the lines around the eye until it meets your satisfaction.

Luscious Lashes with Infinity Long Wear Mascara

Beautiful eyes are accentuated by the appearance of long, full lashes. Although this is a tried and true beauty enhancer, you will gain a lot more attention when you have lashes that are cared for and properly groomed. Eyes are said to be windows to the soul, and your eyelashes should be an important beauty priority reflecting that. Eyelashes also play a huge role in eye health while protecting your eyes from foreign objects.

In order to maintain a healthy skin and eye regimen, using airbrush cosmetics should be on your list. For beautiful, lush lashes, our Infinity long wear mascara aids in buildable length and volume. Whenever you wear air brush makeup and mascara, it is important to remove all eye makeup at the end of the day for the best maintenance and care. If mascara stays on for too long, it can clump and make the eyelashes hard, which will also cause them to become brittle and fall out. Eyelashes do come out from time to time, but with the use of the Trilash Eyelash Enhancer, your lashes can grow longer and fuller. A few other tips for good eye care:

  • Take the time to avoid frequently rubbing the eyes
  • Refrain from pulling out eyelashes

These tips will help retain eyelashes and keep the eyes in a naturally healthy state. Enhancing your eyes with the airbrush makeup system and air brush foundation are a large part of keeping a youthful appearance and aids in the longevity of radiant skin and ravishing eyes.
