The Linda Wells Report: The Latest In Skincare Secrets

To convert this generation to moisturizers, hydrators, and even active ingredients, there’s a whole army of stealth skin-care products that make skin look better mere minutes after they’re smeared on. Some of Wells’ favorite brands include Fresh, GlamGlow, Neutrogena, Olay, Clarins and Glossier.

Помады нннада?

Есть марки, которые практически никогда не разочаровывают. Ну, для меня это однозначно MAC, например. Или Jeffree Star.

А бывают марки, от которых не ждёшь особо ничего сверх программы, а они как выдадут! Типа NYX, например, масс-маркет же, а как дадут жару помадами-металликами или кремовыми румянами!

А тут вот у нас третий случай. Когда марка, у которой ты страстно любишь уход, не балует тебя декоративкой. Ну, я не говорю, что всегда, просто вот в этом конкретном случае.

Питательная губная помада Clarins Rouge Eclat Satin Finish Age-Defying Lipstick

Жирненькая, мягенькая, да, цвет насыщенный и красивый, наносится легко, комфортна. Но блин, почему так быстро съедается? 

Правда, то ли я слишком избалована железобетонными джеффри с лайм краймом вместе, то ли что? Через пару часов от помады остаётся только контур, а при её яркости это выглядит довольно пугающе. Кроме того, наслаивается с трудом, и за контур бывает, что растекается. 

В общем, как говорится, за такие бабки есть куча помад куда более стойких, так что второй раз точно не куплю. 

How to Prep Your Lashes For Mascara & Get The Most Out Of Your Natural Lashes

Everyone wants super long lashes but unfortunately without the help of false lashes and extensions they can be difficult to achieve. Rather than messing around with false lashes, glue and tears of frustration try using these tips to prep your lashes for mascara and get naturally long, thick looking lashes.

How to Prep Your Lashes For Mascara & Get The Most Out Of Your Natural Lashes. Products used: Clarins 3-Dot Liner, Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, Lancome CILS BOOSTER XL, Rimmel ScandalEyes RetroGlam Mascara, Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara

Step 1. Start by tightling your eyes (dotting in-between your lashes with an eyeliner)

Step 2. Curl your lashes, start by curling at the base of the lashes, squeezing, then moving to the middle of the lashes, squeezing and then out o the very tip sand squeezing. This will give lashes the most lift.

Step 3. Wiggle a lash primer through the base of your lashes and continue wiggling it to the tips.

Step 4. Once the first coat of lash primer has dried, apply another coat.

Step 5. Ensuring that your second coat of lash primer has dried, coat the lashes with a good mascara. Try angling the outer corner lashes outwards, the middle lashes upwards and the inner corner lashes inwards for a full “fan” effect.

Step 6. Now move onto the lower lashes, start defining them by wiggling a clear mascara through the lower lashes, this will help enhance their length making them ready for mascara.

Step 7. Finish by applying mascara to your lower lashes using a simple “stamp” technique once the clear mascara has dried. Whether you choose to use your regular mascara or one with a smaller wand is up to you. As the lashes have already been defined you do not need to wiggle the mascara wand.

Step 8. You’re done!
