This is just a very short post, to show you how I normally apply not just any cream blush, but a BRIGHT and BOLD cream blush. Many people love using their fingers, but for me, I find that I prefer using a combination of fingers AND brush. The cream blush I am showing you today is one of the brightest I own, which is MAC Florida. This shade can be intimidating, because if you use a heavy hand, you’d end up having 2 very red cheeks that are meant to stay on a baboon’s behind. However, when done right, you will have the loveliest flush ever.
I received quite a few requests to do a step by step tutorial on how to do a double winged eye liner look, like in my recent FOTD. This will be a simplified version, with a little less drama compared to the FOTD. To start, you’ll need a few things: Black pencil liner, black liquid liner or black gel liner (depends on your preference), eyeliner brush (something small for precise application), base for eyes, face powder, black eyeshadow, sparkly eyeshadow, blue eyeshadow, mascara, cotton buds.
Afraid of using dark eyeshadows for fear of looking like a panda? Love the smoky eye look but no matter how hard you try, they just look imbalanced? Let me share with you a very simple, non intimidating smoky eye.
I think it’s an understatement to say that makeup brushes are a breeding ground for germs. Using dirty brushes might also give you breakouts. I always make sure I deep cleanse all my brushes at least once a week (usually on weekends when I give makeup a break).
Lining your eyes with gel liners is just the same as doing it with pencils, as I’ve done in 101. Now, for 102, the only difference is, in place of the pencil, you’ll be using a brush and a gel liner. There are a few brushes you can choose from. Angled brush, pointed liner brush and even the ones with flat tops that allows you to just push the product onto your lashline. Below is the photo I used for how to tightline your eyes… this shows a few of the brushes that you can use.
