Learn to apply your cosmetics properly

Make sure you don't look like a clown after wearing makeup in the morning. Most of us learn how to put on our faces from our friends in junior high or our mothers and that's all well and good until we have to go to an important business meeting and we realize we actually don't know how to apply eyeliner. Many makeup artists will actually visit you in your own home or as part of a cosmetics party and teach you how to do it properly,or you can visit a cosmetics counter and have them take you throught the process. There's more to a great look than just throwing your makeup on,but there are simple and easy tricks that will have you looking gorgeous in no time.Foundation-Don't forget to blend foundation into your neck,or you'll end up with an unsightly line around your jaw. Apply concealer after foundation. Eye shadow-Apply your base color from the inside out,then define your eyes with a darker shade in the crease of your eyelid. For extra definition, use a light shadow on your brow bone. Eye linear- Steady your hand by resting on a flat surface , and always apply from the inside to the outside of your eye. Extending the liner beyond the end of your eyelids will give a great exotic look. Mascara- Two layers is best. Apply the first layer downwards from the roots,then again upwards from the midway point of the lashes; Apply a finer layer to the bottom lashes so you don't look like a panda,then leave for a couple of minutes and repeat. Lipstick-The way you apply your lipstick depends on the shape of your mouth , but make sure your lip liner (if you use one) matches the color of your lipstick. Use a base or primer ,apply color with a lip brush and remember to blot. Finish off with an aplicationof lip gloss for perfectly louscious lips.

How Long Does Permanent Makeup Last?

Permanent makeup employs techniques from tattooing to apply pigment to your skin, making it appear that you are always wearing makeup. Good candidates for permanent makeup include individuals with alopecia or a genetic pigment disorder. Permanent makeup has also gained a following with women who are interested in appearing like they are always made up, who have no medical condition. The ink used in permanent makeup has been approved by the FDA for use in tattooing the face and is perfectly safe, provided you trust your technician. The name "permanent makeup" may be misleading; like other tattoos, permanent makeup will fade over time.
