Going to Masquerade: Here is How to Properly Combine Your Makeup and Masks

When you are going to an event, you need to be prepared so that you can be the best version of yourself.

There are a lot of events in the coming weeks and most of them have an underlying theme: masks.

If you’re going to a Halloween party or if you fancy exotice masquerade masks, then you’re in luck. Today, I am going to talk about how you can perfectly combine your makeup and masks when attending such occasions.

For the Makeup:

The main premise here when you’re going to a celebration where masks are involved is to have the makeup accentuate your look even with the mask on.

In masquerade balls, for example, masquerade masks only cover about 1/3 of your total face, so the other 2/3 would need to be enhanced using some makeup.

Here are some tips:

  1.    Prep your face

The first thing you need to do before applying any makeup is to prepare your face. Think of it as your canvas. Make sure that you clean your face first by moisturizing it and even using some hydration creams or gels.

After a few minutes of applying such creams, you can then start to put on some makeup.

  1.    Which makeup to use?

There are four essential makeup products you need to use: an eyeliner, mascara, face powder, and lipstick.

When using an eyeliner, you want to start by doing the inner and outer corners. For beginners, you can use a pencil because it is much more forgiving and it does the job pretty well. Use light strokes only so that it spreads evenly.

When applying Mascara, you need to be gentle and make sure that there isn’t too much on the brush so that it won’t get too clumpy during the application process. You would want to start at the base of the lashes (making sure that you look forward during the entire procedure) and then slowly push the brush/wand side to side about 3-4 times and then sweep up. This ensures an even application. Do this until you achieve your desired look.

For the face powder, you want to apply just the right amount of it. Never skip the face powder because this allows you to have a fresh face even if you become sweaty during the event. This also improves your complexion as well.

face powder

And finally, the lipstick. When applying lipstick, there are a couple of things you should do:

  • Make use of a lip balm so that your lips will become smooth and also, to increase the allure of the lipstick.
  • Next, you would want to get a lip liner as well. I recommend getting a lip liner that matches the color of         your lips and NOT the color of your lipstick.
  • Next is the application. The key here is to start at the middle and then slowly and gently move outward towards the corner of your lip. After that, you can blot your lips so that the lipstick will blot down the lower lip.

 

  1.    You want to Apply Makeup only to enhance your look with a mask on

Again, only apply enough makeup because you would want your look to be enhanced when you’re wearing a masquerade mask, for example.

For the Mask

When you are going to an event involving some masks like the upcoming November Masquerade ball, you need to wear one that suits your facial features.

You can make one by getting a template and then adding your own flair to it or you can simply buy one on the event (usually, organizers will have their staff sell them because the masks are an integral part of the event).

So, what’s the master tip when wearing the mask? The only tip, really, is to get a mask that perfectly suits your face.

You want to get a mask that is suitable for your skin color and you also want it to not cover your entire face. As previously mentioned in the article, you only want to have a mask that hides 1/3 of your face so that your other features can be noticed and enhanced.

Conclusion

When going to an event that involves masks, always make sure to wear makeup. Only use makeup to enhance your facial features and it should not steal the spotlight; it should just complement the mask you’re using.

Professional Makeup Tactics for Hot Weather

We can all agree that the main reason we use makeup is to enhance and bring out our beauty more clearly. However, if makeup is not worn with the right tactic during summer, it does not serve its purpose; instead, it does the opposite. Sticky lipsticks, melting eye shadows and mascara as well as clumpy faces are a common yet disappointing phenomenon in hot weather. Though some people prefer to avoid makeup until summer is over, at one point you will need the makeup.

Thus, knowing a few tips on how to maintain that fabulous look even in hot weather will go a long way. You will not be embarrassed or walk around the streets looking like a clown. Some of the best tips on how to use makeup during hot weather, as recommended by top beauty artists, include:

Using the Waterproof Mascara and Eyeliners

As long as you are up and down during hot seasons, sweating is inevitable. During hot seasons like summer, swimming and all kinds of beach activities are always on the menu. For this, you will need to avoid the ugly raccoons that form around the eyes by using waterproof mascara and eyeliners. This will ensure that it resists sweat and water while in swimming pools or the beach. Make sure you know some eyeliner tips and techniques which are exactly for your eye shape, in order your make up to be even more wonderful. 

Invest in a Primer

The primary purpose of a primer is to give your other makeup creams or powder longer durability. As you use the primer, make sure to only use it around your T-zone, the nose and the cheeks. Applying too much primer makes the skin look unnatural and dull.

Use Sheer Colors on Your Lips and Eyes

Deep colors are beautiful. They always make you standout or make a statement, but in summer, you need to go nude. To lower the messiness that comes with sweating and makeup. Wearing an invisible lip liner and nude or sheer colors of lipstick and lip balms gives you that natural glow that is not affected by setting. Using less visible eyeshadows also reduces the mess that comes with meting eye makeup.

Go Slow on the Powder Usage

A sweaty face combined with powdered makeup will definitely lead into a clumpy face. During summer, keep off powdered blush, eyeshadow or foundation. Instead, use liquid based or creams because they glide on smoothly making your face look natural. Instead of the powder blush, you can use gel or blush stain blended with blush cream for that lasting beautiful summer look you deserve.

Use a Good Base before Wearing the Rest of Your Makeup

Wearing oily makeup during summer will not help you get the less oily and sweaty look; it will make it worse. For a better look, before wearing your makeup, use an oil free moisturizer as well as foundation treatment. You can also spray a makeup setting spray after wearing your makeup. The spray protects the makeup from sliding down your skin.

To enjoy hot weather even better without worries, carry around bloating papers in your purse. The good thing is they are small enough to fit in your bag.

Winning Tactics of Your Look: How to Slay it During Yoga Class

With all the articles about yoga on the internet, by now you are probably well-versed in the benefits that this type of workout provides. A few of them include increased muscle strength, improved flexibility, stress relief, etc. All these combine to provide you with an inner glow and toned body that are sure to make you the envy of all your friends.

But, what if you want to slay while working out? You’ve come to the right place. Simply check out our short but comprehensive guide on how to look your best during yoga class.

What to Wear

Proper yoga wear is essential for those who want to be comfortable and remain on trend while working out. But, before you decide what to buy, you should know that the type of yoga that you do will greatly impact the clothes that you choose.

For instance, most classes are great with a simple body hugging tank or slim fit shorts. But, if you are going to be doing Yin yoga or a meditative type of practice, baggier clothes are a good choice as well. Furthermore, no matter the class you take, keep these things in mind:

  • Keep snaps, zippers, and buttons to a minimum. They restrict your movement and may pinch your flesh when doing stretches or bends.
  • Avoid super short shorts. They can bunch up and cause discomfort.
  • Low-cut tanks are cute but not super great at keeping the girls secure.
  • Cotton underwear breathes well, but they get heavy when wet. They also take a while to dry.
  • Thin or light colored pants can show your classmates more than you bargained for.

Great Workout Hair

Fishtail Braid

You’re doing it. You’re in the middle of a perfect flow and as you bring your head down to do an inversion, your hair smacks you in the face – OUCH!

Your blissed out feeling is now totally gone – replaced with feelings of irritation. You have now learned what just about every experienced yogi knows, you can’t wear just any old hairstyle when you’re on the mat. To help you deal with this dilemma, consider the following styles:

  • Fishtail Braid: It’s stylish, edgy, and will keep your hair out of your face.
  • Messy bun: This no muss no fuss style is great for a power yoga session
  • French braid: A French braid is perfect for those classes that are a little more relaxed. Plus, it won’t get in your way when laying down
  • Pony Braid: If your French braiding skills aren’t up to par, this simple braided ponytail will do the trick
  • Halo Braid: Not only is this style super cute, it’s perfect for virtually any yoga type of yoga practice
  • Ballet bun: A high bun like this is better suited to the more intense types of yoga. Plus, this pulled back and super slick style is a great way to channel your inner ballerina.

Natural Makeup Tricks

Wearing makeup during your workout is not recommended. The combination of makeup and sweat can cause clogged pores, which leads to breakouts and/or skin irritation. But, all is not lost. A minimalist approach to makeup allows you get a good workout without causing damage to the skin. To achieve this look, keep these essentials in your workout bag:

  • Tinted sunblock: Provides protection from the sun and light coverage as well
  • Mineral makeup: Won’t clog the pores, even during sweaty workout sessions.
  • Tinted moisturizer: Gives off a foundation-like glow but is also light on the skin. Pair with a concealer for a flawless look.
  • Waterproof eyeliner/mascara: Outlasts the most rigorous workout routine without fear of smudging
  • Blotting sheet: Helps remove excess shine and sweat
  • Lip stain: Provides you with awesome matte color and it lasts longer than gloss. You can also master some liquid lipstick tricks, if you wouldn’t like to go without it
  • Powder blush: Gives your cheeks the right amount of color and won’t clog pores.

Slay Some More

They say when you look good, you feel good. And putting a tiny bit of effort into your appearance before working out can give you quite a confidence boost. But, if you want to take things to the next level, consider the following tips:

  • Add even more flair to your hairstyle with a pretty flower, hairband, or a hair clip. These accessories will add freshness to your look, especially if you’re rocking a french braid or other plaited hairstyle.
  • Use a face spray to keep your oil free makeup in place while working out. It can also be used after the workout to moisturize your dehydrated skin
  • To keep your skin clog free, wipe your face clean after your workout with a facial towelette – preferably with one that contains salicylic acid.

Yoga will definitely make you feel good and following the above tips will make sure that you look good while doing it as well. This increased confidence will likely lead to a better workout. But, you don’t have to take our word for it. Try the above tips and see for yourself. Namaste.

7 Tips for Looking “Excellent” on Sunday Mornings

All women would love to be Sleeping Beauty. Who wouldn’t want to wake up after a really long nap with your hair all set, makeup still perfect, and a Prince Charming to boot. Even without the perfect man, the fact that she woke up effortlessly gorgeous makes us all envious. It seems like something that only happens in the movies. Or does it? Well, we’ve got a rude awakening for you! Some people have been waking up selfie-ready for years. And they only had to follow these tips:

selfie ready after sleep

#1: Wash your face before bed

Never go to bed without washing your face because it means that you’ll be allowing toxins and dirt to stay on your skin all night long. The best time to give your skin the treatment it needs is at night. This is because at night, more blood flows to the surface of your skin. And if you wash your face at night, you’re basically giving yourself a clean slate. You won’t have anything on your face (i.e. makeup) that will prevent the treatment’s absorption into your skin.

#2: Use night cream

Once all the impurities are out, your skin is ready for some moisturizing. With night cream, you ensures your skin maintains its elasticity, feels soft and supple, and reduces all those aging wrinkles that come from dried out skin. Night creams are usually richer in texture than lotions applied during the day. They provide more intensive treatment, requiring more time for complete absorption. This means that your skin will not only get enough nourishment and hydration, it will also look younger for a longer period of time.

#3: Condition your hair

Just like your skin, your hair needs a lot of moisturizing too. Dampen your hair and apply a rich conditioner before going to bed. You’ll get silky, healthy hair when you wake up. Just don’t forget to rinse it out, ok?

#4: Use eye cream

Yes, you’re already using night cream to moisturize the skin. But the skin around our eyes are more prone to dryness and needs something more than just your regular moisturizer. It’s also quick to show the fine lines caused by aging and fatigue. Not to mention, there will be times when fluids collect under the eyes which produce puffiness and dark under-eye circles. Using a moisturizing eye cream will ensure that you prevent morning puffiness, dark under-eye circles, and fine lines from showing. And it keeps the skin around your eyes tight, ensuring you retain that youthful look far longer than you thought possible.

#5: Use a lip scrub

Want soft, kissable lips just like Sleeping Beauty? Then, apply a lip scrub before getting in bed. The scrub will exfoliate the skin on your lips, taking away any flakes and roughness, and boost circulation. Applying a lip balm will moisturize your lips overnight so you can wake up to a perfect pout.

#6: Buy silk pillowcases

Silk is the best fabric for ensuring that your hair remains frizz-free while you sleep. It also lessens the amount pressure on your skin that leads to wrinkles. As an added bonus, sleeping on silk sheets indulges the little princess in all of us.

#7: Get a comfy mattress

Even if you do all our tips religiously, you’ll never wake up beautiful if you never get quality sleep at night. And your mattress has a lot to do with the quality of your sleep. If you don’t feel refreshed after a night’s sleep, keep waking up at all hours of the night, or wake up with aches and pains, you’re going to need to rethink your mattress. Now, there’s no such thing as the perfect mattress. But you definitely can find the best mattress that matches your needs. Make sure that aside from feeling comfortable, you’ll also need to get adequate support. Another important feature of a good mattress is how cool it feels while you sleep. If your body gets too hot at night, you’ll end up tossing and turning all night, trying to find a cool spot to sleep on.

These are just a few things to consider when choosing your mattress match. Once you do find it, you can be sure that you’ll be getting true beauty sleep every night.

3 Steps to Master the Art of Liquid Lipstick

Liquid lipstick have been around for awhile now, but they seem to be staying for another year or even more. Are we really surprised though? In comparison to usual lipstick the liquid ones are much more pigmented and the longevity of the wear isn’t even comparable and let’s be honest who wants to reapply the lipstick several times during a huge event and be careful what you eat in order not to end up with half gone or smeared lipstick in photos.

liquid lipstick

Despite the indisputable facts many still shun from liquid lipsticks as they usually end up with dry lips or accentuated dry lip skin or even worse not even application. Applying liquid lipstick can be tricky, but when you get the hold of it, you’ll never go back to ordinary lipsticks.

ExfoLIPate

exfoliator

First and the most important part is to  exfoliate your lips in order to get rid of dried patches and plump your lips. You can use any store bought exfoliator or just use the mixture of sugar and coconut oil, that you for sure have in your pantry and  gently scrub your lips or you can just run your toothbrush on through your lips after you are done brushing your teeth, just be gentle.

 

RejuLipate

Lip mask

After exfoliation it’s time to bring the moisture back into your lips. Start of with a lip mask. You can use either lip sheet masks or creamy masks. After masking apply lip balm or just petroleum jelly and let it soak in.

 

Lipstick Time!

Lipstick spreading

Finally when your lips are ready it’s time to apply the liquid lipstick. Start from the center and evenly spread the lipstick. Remember that liquid lipsticks are very pigmented so be careful around the edges. Apply one thin coat  for even coverage and to reduce the lipstick from building up and cracking.

Voilà! Now your lips look like a masterpiece canvas. Enjoy the night or day and don’t even bother about checking your lipstick. Sure you can still gaze in the mirror and admire the work you’ve done.

Fun and Young : Sparkly lips and curly hair

Holidays are definitely one of that rare times you can totally have fun with your looks. And this new glittery sparkly lips, that is trending right now is the perfect fit for this fun festive time. Apply a creamy lipstick then pat some glitter of the same color on your lips. You can also use some glitter glue to make it more long wear, but make sure to check that the adhesive is non toxic and won’t harm you.

Glittery lips are fun by their on , but in addition to big, curly hair they transfer the look into a firework. If you are blessed with gorgeous curly hair, then you just need to stick to your usual routine (which is not a small thing I’m sure you know if your hair is curly ) , if not then you’ll need a small curling wand and some time for wrapping all your hair around it. As well as during the “bed hair” wrap the strands in opposite directions to avoid the hair sticking together and not looking natural.

Choose some dark lipstick shades like deep purple, burgundy and even black add some lashes to give the eyes more dimension and that’s it. Just make sure your lipstick is long wear, you’re probably going to have some dinner and you don’t want it to smear.

Dark lips will look absolutely amazing with some messy braids and also will feel very comfortable. The easiest way will be giving messy waves to your hair than do a side braid, letting some pieces fall apart or just do pigtail braids , mess them up a little bit and do a crown updo by pinning the braids up.

You ready for the wedding?

Once a wedding is over with, what do your guests remember the most? If you want to make a truly memorable wedding, it’s not necessary to make everything perfect. There are some things that need some extra attention. You want to leave happy memories of the special occasion for everyone involved.

Tiny details like embossing on the invitations aren’t going to stick in the minds of your guests. What they truly remember is how different aspects of the ceremony made them feel. Thus, aesthetic appreciation is important. Focus on these things for your wedding and you’ll be sure to leave your guests with a good impression.

Your Guest List

Making a guest list can be really simple or really difficult. The easy answer is to invite who you want to invite, but if you already know people in your families don’t get along, that could ruin their appreciation for the wedding and could even cause drama. Depending on who they are, there may be no easy way around it but forward. Still, don’t leave someone off that you really do want to have at your special day. Always remember that you and your spouse’s needs are at the center of a wedding.

Wedding Makeup

wedding markup

The aesthetics of a wedding is a big part of the occasion, and it all starts with makeup. Yes, even before dresses! All of the important members of the wedding should look their best. Getting a professional makeover for the women, at least for the bride, will help them put their best face forward. The bride will appreciate looking her best as she receives all the guests. Your men should also look good!

Wedding band

wedding bands

Ideally, you and your spouse will be wearing your bands for the rest of your lives, so you should definitely make sure you like them. Whether or not others do really doesn’t matter, but people are going to want to look at them during the reception. Therefore, wear something you’re proud of and flatters your hand. Price doesn’t matter so long as the wedding bands are the right ones and look good on you.

Venue and Comfort

Most people aren’t going to remember the exact details of the venue decorations, but they will remember how they made them feel. The decorations should be tasteful and fit your chosen color scheme. Your guests should also be comfortable during the wedding and the reception. If you choose to have an outdoor venue, take care of the comfort of the guests. Make sure they’re not too hot or cold as best as you can predict. You don’t want your wedding to be the one where everyone baked in their finery or froze.

Clothing

There is a reason that brides agonize over dress selection. It is a something special that they’ll only wear once (hopefully!) But the other members of the wedding party must also look good. Try to find clothing for the bridesmaids and groomsmen that match appropriately and flatters everyone’s figure. Easier said than done, but so important!

Ceremony

Again, people aren’t going to remember every little detail of the ceremony. However, wedding ceremonies do leave an impression. If you’re having a traditional religious wedding, the details of the ceremony may be very crucial for everyone there to feel like it’s an authentic one. But even in a secular wedding you can’t be TOO irreverent lest your guests think that you’re mocking the ceremony. Then again, if both families prefer a humorous wedding, go for that strange theme!

Reception

Guests expect food and drink at a reception and it doesn’t need to be super fancy. But it does need to fill them up enough so they don’t feel hungry or thirsty. The decision for alcohol or not is a personal choice, but if you choose to have it, make sure some people are sober to maintain order in the crowd.

As far as the cake goes, make sure there is enough for everyone. The enjoyment of eating it will be more immediate than the joy of looking at the pristine cake before cutting. Also, couples, agree on how you’re going to cut the cake and feed it to each other beforehand!

For entertainment, most will be satisfied with a place to sit, some music, and a place to dance, but that will depend on your culture and family traditions. If there are special after-wedding ceremonies to follow, don’t neglect them without good reason.

People don’t remember details. They remember how an event made them feel. If you keep this principle in mind, you’ll leave everyone with happy memories of your wedding.
