Quick Beauty Tip – No Mess Mascara Application

Next time someone wants to give you their unwanted business card, don’t decline or toss it! Keep a collection of business cards in your vanity for mascara application. Since mascara should be applied last as a finishing touch,  it often can create a smudgy mess. Avoid this by placing a business card right up against your lash line. Apply mascara as usual, only the excess makeup will smudge onto the card instead of your perfectly shadowed eyelids! quicktip-business-card-lashes

Tutorial Tuesday – Contouring 101

Contouring is a beautiful thing. Contouring & highlighting can make a face with hyperpigmentation, blemishes, and an uneven canvas appear picture-perfect. Below is a highlighting & contouring map.

Starting with a clean canvas, apply your regular foundation as a base. Next, bronze the spots in the first image below. These include your temples, the outer edges of your nose, and beneath your cheekbones down to your jaw line. In order to find the right spot, suck your cheeks into the perfect duck face and start at the indentation. Next, use a highlighter to swipe down the center of your nose, apply in a triangle underneath each eye, and in a triangle between the eyebrows on the forehead. See the picture below for exact placement. The third image shows the combined highlighted & contoured face. Finish with a clean, fluffy blender brush with bronzer to blend it all in. You will be amazed at the transformation!

Quick Beauty Tip – Make Perfume Last All Day

quicktip-make-perfume-lastIn order to make your perfume last all day be sure to spray it on your wrists, behind your ears, the base of your throat, inside your elbow and behind your knees! On top of choosing the perfect spots, go against your usual tendencies and don’t rub the perfume in. Rubbing the skin together after application compromises the smell. Just spray on & let your skin take it from there!

If you want to carry perfume with you, try a travel size travalo perfume atomizer. It is small enough to be TSA approved & fit in any handbag.

Tutorial Tuesday – Gel Eyeliner

You will be shocked at how easy it is to create your own gel eyeliner without shelling out the extra cash. Hold any lighter to a typical pencil eyeliner for 2 seconds. Be careful not to exceed this time as eyeliner melts fast! Let the liner cool a bit and then apply. It will glide on extra smooth! TT-Gel-Liner

Quick Beauty Tip – Halloween Hair Crimps!

quicktip-crimpsThinking about an 80’s costume for Halloween this year? Or maybe you’re going to dress up as Daenerys Targaryen from The Game Of Thrones. Whichever way you go, full, gorgeous, crimped hair is an absolute must!

If you got rid of your crimper in the early 90’s with the rest of us you aren’t doomed! You can get the same crimped effect by sleeping overnight with your hair sectioned into small braids. In the morning, flat iron over the braids once or twice to let the creases set in. Then take the braids out and spray with a light hairspray.

Your result will be perfect Halloween hair!

TT-DIY-Gel-Manicure

Gel manicures are a hands on girl’s best friend! They last far longer and keep your nails strong and less prone to breakage. The downside is that they can be costly, and your local salon may not have the color that you want in gel polish. Here is how to recreate a gel manicure in any color of nail polish you want!

Step 1: Apply two coats of Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat

Step 2: Apply one coat of the nail polish color you want to rock for the next couple weeks followed by another coat of Gelous.

Step 3: After allowing the coats from Step 1 & 2 to dry, apply another coat of the color polish & finish it off with top coat.

Your friends will be super “gelous”! (Was that too cheesy?)

Follow our previous tutorial tuesday to learn how to remove a gel manicure at home when you’re done!

The lighting in your bathroom or vanity is likely not going to be the same as the lighting wherever your final destination is. In order to confirm your makeup is as flawless as can be, take a quick look when you get into the car. There is nothing truer than sunlight to show you imperfections big or small.

You may notice some discrepancy in color between your face & neck. Be sure to bring your cosmetic bag with you to touch up in the car!
