1. BUY YOUR SKIN TONE. Whether you have pink undertones or yellow, buy the product that balances your undertones and evens out your facial color.
2. Never highlight in the center of your forehead; instead, highlight just above your brow to ensure your forehead doesnt like like a four-and-a-half head.
3. Follow your natural eyebrow shape. Not every brow has to look ig fleaky. Also, when filling in, draw your hairs in fine, controlled movements in the direction of hair growth.
4. Always always always moisturize and prime before putting on makeup to make it last, and to protect your skin.
5. When doing eyeshadow, always do your transition shade first, then your crease, and then your lid color.
6. When doing a cut crease look, apply and blend your transition shade and crease. Then, trace ONLY your physical lid with concealer. Pat the concealer to blend, and before applying any shadow to your lid, APPLY TRANSLUCENT POWDER TO THE LID. This will make your color stick and last longer.
7. Wait a few minutes for your foundation to dry before applying any concealer or powder. This ensures a smoother finish, and makes the look last longer.
8. There are 2 types of concealers you need: one with an illuminating finish, for highlighting, and one with a matte finish, for coverage. Use the illuminating one on your T Zone, and use the matte one on undereye bags and blemishes.
9. Apply setting spray between doing your brows, face, and eyes instead of just one spray at the end. Itll make your face last a lot longer.
10. To avoid fallout, and to guide your eyeliner wing and creater a sharper look, apply a line of translucent powder at the outer corner of your eye in the direction of where you want your shadow or wing to go before you apply any eye makeup.
11. Curl your lashes before mascara.
12. Have a separate blending brush for your eyeshadow. This keeps colors from being overly pigmented and makes for a cleaner blend. I recommend ths BH Cosmetics eyeshadow brush kit ($9.99 on their site).
13. Wait until your mascara is completely dry before applying a separate coat to avoid any clumping or spider lashes.
14. Applying a thin layer of transluceny powdet between coats of lipstick helps to keep it on and pigmented (it also makes any lipstick look matte).
15. Use a colored eyeshadow as your inner corner highlight if you want a subtle colored look.
16. Let your face breathe; makeup is lit and I love wearing a full face, but you need to let your skin relax and regroup to avoid clogging your pores.
17. Applying a small amount of petroleum jelly or moisturizer to your cheekbones before adding highlight will give you a fuckin blinding glo✨
18. Never ever ever sleep with makeup on
19. If you want a more natural finish, or you want to lighten the shade of your foundation, mix your foundation with some moisturizer before applying.
20. Always use a slightly lighter contour shade on your jawline than on your cheeks/nose/forehead. If your jawline is contoured too dark, it can make your face look extremely unnatural.
21. Always wet your beauty blender before using it for an easier blend.
22. Always blend your foundation into your neck and your ears to make the shade look more uniform and natural.
23. The whole concealer vs. foundation comes first debate is still a thing, but what works best for me is this order: color correcting and spot treatment concealer (for dark spots, undereye circles, pimples, etc), then foundation, then highlighting concealer.
24. If you use eyeliner on your lower waterline, apply some black eyeshadow with an eyeliner brush onto your waterline after applying pencil to make it last longer.
25. If you’re ever in a pinch, or want a monochromatic look, use a pink/red toned eyeshadow as your blush.
26. Sort of the same as number 25, but you can also use a light, shimmery eyeshadow as a highlight.
27. Everyone’s face is different; theres a look for everyone. Experiment with different shades and shapes to find the look that you think suits you best.
28. Remember, practice makes perfect!!

When I'm doing eyeshadow, I always mess up on the crease and darkening it. How do I do it without messing up?
Eyeshadow can be a great way of amping up your makeup look, but it doesn’t come without any struggles. Perfectly blended shadow is something that isn’t easy to master, but with a few tips, tricks and tools in your belt you can be a pro in no time!
Prep Your Lids
Just like how you wouldn’t paint walls without an undercoat or primer, you shouldn’t start your shadow without a base! Try using an eyeshadow primer under your shadow and setting it with a translucent powder to create a soft smooth base for your eyeshadow! Blending will be a breeze!
Use Lighter Shades and Sheerer Shadows
pigmented shadows will generally give you bang for your buck, sometimes a
sheer formula is better if you need to blend. I personally recommend
using a powder contour or bronzer for this, but other eyeshadows you may
like to try: Essence Single Eyeshadows (some are more pigmented than others so stick with the lighter shades) Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eye Shadow and NARS Matte Eyeshadows (NARS are
not my favourite eyeshadows, but for sheer, matte crease shades these
are a good option)
Start out slow
Rather than loading up your brush with a whole heap of colour and applying it all at once, start out slow. After dipping your brush into the product, tap off any excess, then wipe the brush on a tissue or the back of your hand before applying. This will ensure you end up with only the smallest amount of product, making blending much easier.
Keep a Clean Brush Handy
Whenever you are creating an eyeshadow look, it is best to keep a clean brush handy for blending. A clean, dry, soft, fluffy natural hair brush will give the best results, Additionally, if you’ve got any super harsh lines dip the brush in a little translucent powder and blend away!
while getting ready for the exhibition skates, on this faraway corner victor is silently annoying the shit out of yurio and he suddendly yells "IT'S NOT A PHASE DAD". everyone is trying not to crack while yurio takes whatever is left of his dignity to a toilet stall to finish blending his eyeshadow
lmao that’s probably why he threw those gucci sunglasses at the crowd to piss victor off
Hooded eyes can be a tricky subject when it comes to makeup, but it doesn’t have to be! With just one simple sweep this technique can give your eyes lift, and definition whilst making them appear more elongated.
Step 1. After prepping the eyelids and tightlining the eyes sweep a shimmery, pigmented shade over the eyelid
Step 2. With your eyes open work a matte dark brown shade through the crease and blend
Step 3. Taking a darker shade than the one you originally used, hold the brush at the outer corner of the eye
Step 4. Gently drag the brush upwards towards your eyebrow to create a winged shape
Step 5. Blend out the eyeshadow following that same shape
Step 6. Take the same matte dark brown along the lower lash line
Step 7. Smudge a dark, black eyeshadow along the upper lash line as an eyeliner
Step 8. Smudge that same dark black shade along the lower lash line
Step 9. All that blending can take away the first shade you apply so reapply it to the center of the eyelid
Step 10. Curl your lashes and apply mascara to both top and bottom lashes.

Pairing: Harrison Osterfield x Reader
Description: You and Zendaya had gotten invited over to Tom’s house, he was throwing his first “party.” You both arrive, a decent amount of people there and end up loosing Zendaya, but find Harrison instead, making the party ten times more exciting.
A/N: AHHHH first Harrison imagine and it’s for my bff so I hope you enjoy ilysm!!!
“Hey Y/N, did you get a text from Tom too?” Zendaya spoke over the phone, her voice echoing throughout your house.
You had just woken up, you were currently doing your makeup, you know the usual girly things.
“Yeah, something about him throwing a party?” You laughed, blending the eyeshadow on your eyelid.
“I don’t know what he’s thinking, he’s never thrown one before, but I’m intrigued to see how it goes, care to join me?” She asked in an amused tone, making you stop blending and think for a moment.
“You know what, sure, why not, lets see what he’s got, it’s not like he could throw one better than us.” You joked, making Zendaya laugh, causing you to laugh along with her.
Zendaya was your best friend, you both met on the set of Spider-Man Homecoming and instantly clicked, just like Tom did with Jacob.
However, Tom already had a best friend, who also was kind of his assistant, and that would be the famous Harrison Osterfield.
“I’m pretty positive Harrison will be there tooooooo.” She teased, making you scoff as you applied your mascara.
“I wouldn’t doubt it, they’re best friends Z.” You replied, this time making her scoff, which you weren’t going to lie, made you feel good in a way.
Ever since the filming of Spider-Man Homecoming, you started to have a thing for Harrison, you weren’t really sure at the time what it was exactly, but apparently to Zendaya it was obvious that you liked him.
“I’m just saying that maybe at the party this could be your chance to you know..” She trailed off, making your eyes widen and a laugh to escape your lips.
“ZENDAYA!” You screeched, making her laugh loudly, as you laughed along with her.
“I’m just saying!” She laughed, making you shake your head, even though she couldn’t see you, Zendaya had a good idea of what you were doing.
“I’m not sure if he even would feel the same, I mean he’s like Tom, they could get whoever they wanted, why would he want someone like me?” You questioned, applying foundation onto your face, before blending it in with your beat up beauty blender.
“Y/N, please, you’re gorgeous, he would be an actual dumbass not to want you.” Zendaya spoke seriously, making you sigh and shrug into the mirror, looking at your reflection.
“I don’t know Z, I just don’t see it ever happening.” You pressed the powder onto your face, locking in your foundation before adding the last few steps, before spraying your face with setting spray and spraying some perfume.
“I will take this challenge, and I will win.” Zendaya declared, making you roll your eyes and laugh.
“Alright Z, we’ll see.” You smiled into the phone, as you put your shoes and glasses on, grabbing your wallet.
“I’ll pick you up around seven thirty, so be ready, love you boo!” She spoke excitedly into the phone, making you laugh as you responded with an ’I love you too boo, bye!’ before hanging up and going on about your day.
You went out and got a smoothie and a bagel, before shopping for an outfit for tonight’s party, you wanted to look good.
You ended up getting a nice pair of jeans and a crop top, you knew it was a basic outfit everyone wore, but you couldn’t help but fall in love with it.
You then continued on with your day, buying some groceries since you were out, before heading home and getting ready for the party.
You decided to shower before the party, then put on your new outfit you had just bought, a smile on your face as you saw how it all looked on you.
You weren’t going to lie, you looked good.
You then did your hair, deciding to give it some volume by curling it, then touched up your makeup a bit.
You felt your phone vibrate, letting you know Zendaya was here, before you rushed down to meet her.
“Y/N! Damn you look like a million bucks!” She smiled widely, making you wave your hand, dismissing her comment, laughing.
“Thanks Z, you look amazing yourself!” You complimented, making her twirl and laugh.
She wore a vibrant red dress, making her look even more beautiful than she already was.
“Alright, lets blow this popsicle stand.“ She shouted, making you cheer along with her.
It took a good thirty minutes to get there, traffic being a pain, but you both soon arrived, the sound of music erupting from the house, along with chatter from people.
“You think he invited enough people?” You joked, making Zendaya laugh and loop her arm with yours, before walking up to the door, opening it and entering, seeing lots of people scattered everywhere.
“Wow, it’s not as bad as I thought it would be, but we’d still do better.” Zendaya smirked, making you laugh and nod your head in agreement.
You both walked into the kitchen, grabbing a drink and sampling a few snacks along the way, observing all the people around you.
Your eyes soon spotted Jacob, a smile forming on your face as you waved to him, making him rush over in excitement.
“Y/N! Z!” Jacob cheered, making you both laugh and hug him.
“Hey, what’s up?” Zendaya asked, taking a sip of her drink from her red solo cup.
“Not much, Tom’s party is kind of lame, I like yours better honestly.” Jacob admitted, making you both cheer and laugh.
“I knew we threw better parties, Tom just can’t beat us.” You dramatically flipped your hair over your shoulder, making Jacob laugh.
“But since you both are here, come with me so Tom and Harrison can talk with you guys too.” Jacob smiled, making your stomach tighten up a bit, you gave Zendaya a look, but she gave you one in return.
Jacob lead you across the house, out to the backyard where Tom and Harrison were talking to a few other people.
Jacob called out to them, catching their attention, smiles forming on their faces.
“Hey! You guys came!” Tom grinned, walking up to the three of you, Harrison following behind.
“Yeah, but it’s lame Holland, you tried to beat us, you failed.” Zendaya smirked, taking another sip of her drink as Tom gasped, placing a hand on his chest.
“I am offended.” Tom declared, looking between the both of you.
“Jacob even admitted it to us.” You teased, making Tom’s eyes widen, looking at his friend.
“What! Jacob!” Tom shrieked, making Jacob laugh and rush off, Tom following after him.
“I’ll go after them to make sure Tom doesn’t kill him.” Zendaya smirked, winking at you as you pleaded she wouldn’t leave you alone with Harrison.
But she did.
You then decided to down your drink, it was going to be a long night if that was the case.
“Hey Y/N, enjoying the party?” Harrison asked, his drink in his hand as he looked over your outfit, making you blush slightly.
“Eh, it’s alright, but it’s better now that you’re here.” You shrugged, the alcohol starting to kick in.
“I can agree on that one.” Harrison winked, making you giggle, which Harrison loved.
You both eventually sat on the edge of the pool, your feet in the water, drinks by your side the both of you just talked.
People had slowly merged to go inside, Tom was apparently doing Karaoke with Jacob, which was horrible.
“Oh my god, you’ll never guess what I just thought of!” You squealed, making Harrison laugh, turning his head to look at you.
You were clearly buzzed by this point, and so was Harrison, mainly why you both were so open with each other.
“Spill.” Harrison grinned, making you smirk and turn to look at him.
“I have a dumb idea!” You smirked, wiggling your eyebrows making Harrison laugh.
“I love dumb ideas!” Harrison cheered, raising his cup into the air, before taking a sip of it.
You bit your lip, a mischievous glint in your eye, which didn’t go unnoticed by Harrison, he knew you were up to something.
“Well you see, this dumb idea, it involves us,” You giggled, setting your cup on the ground, turning to face Harrison completely, “We’re going to go skinny dipping!” You smirked, watching Harrison’s eyes widen at your words.
“A-Are you sure?” Harrison stammered, unsure if this was the best idea, but you nodded rapidly, the smile never leaving your face.
“I’ve always wanted to do this, and what better person to do it with than you?” You questioned, raising an eyebrow at him.
“Alright then, lets do this.” Harrison grinned, pulling his shirt off, then his pants, as you did the same, until you both were completely in the nude.
“Now lets pray we don’t get caught, but that makes it even more of a thrill.” You laughed, before grabbing his hand, the both of you jumping into the pool.
You both returned to the surface, smiles on your face as laughter erupted from the both of you, you’d never been so happy in your life, and from what you could tell, neither had Harrison.
“Cheers to skinny dipping!” You shouted, as did Harrison, clinking your cups together before taking a drink.
You turned around to set the cups back on the concrete, only to be turned back around by Harrison, being trapped between his arms, your back pressing against the side of the pool.
You both looked at each other, emotions clear of how you both felt about each other, you didn’t need to use words, you both already knew.
In a matter of seconds you went from laughing and having fun, then to Harrison having his hands in your hair as yours were wrapped around his neck, your lips locked together.
You didn’t know how long you two had been making out for, you felt as if time had stopped.
You had even forgotten you both were completely nude, in the pool, at Tom’s house.
You both didn’t even heard the door open, that is until you heard someone clear their throat, startling the two of you.
“Oh my god, guys really? I know I told you to get some Y/N, but I didn’t mean in the pool!” Zendaya laughed, but was serious at the same time, her eyes wide at the scene in front of her.
You both hide behind the wall, both your faces flustered, but you both couldn’t help but laugh.
You heard Zendaya let out a gasp, finally noticing both of your clothes scattered along the pool, her eyes widening even bigger if that was possible, her mouth hanging open slightly.
She turned around, noticing Tom was on his way out to the pool, making her spin back around quickly.
“Put some clothes on already, jeez! We have company coming!” She shouted, making both of your eyes widen as you both quickly scrambled out of the pool, doing your best to dry off, before putting your clothes back on.
You both rushed to get everything on before the back door opened, Tom walking out along with Jacob, who looked around skeptically.
“Whoa, what happened while I was gone?” Tom questioned, noticing how you and Harrison were soaking wet, while Zendaya looked stressed as hell, unable to believe you both clothed yourselves that fast.
“U-Uh, nothing?” You questioned, glancing at Harrison who nodded in agreement.
“Yeah, w-what she said, nothing.” Harrison shrugged, watching Tom and Jacob to see if they’d believe them.
“Why are you guys soaking wet? Did you go in your clothes?” Tom questioned, raising an eyebrow, making Zendaya laugh, which resulted in you and Harrison both glaring at her.
“No, something definitely happened here.” Jacob nodded, looking between the three of you.
“Guys can I just tell them? Please!” Zendaya pleaded, but you both shook your head no.
“Will someone please tell me what the bloody hell happened?” Tom groaned, looking at his best friend then at you.
“If we tell you, promise you won’t kill us?” Harrison questioned, making Tom narrow his eyes.
“What did you two do?” He noticed Zendaya start laughing again, making his stomach churn.
“You see, it’s a funny story actually, uhm, well, you see…” Harrison stammered, looking at his feet, while you were biting your lip hard.
“They went skinny dipping!” Zendaya blurted out, making Tom and Jacob’s eyes widen, looking at the both of you in shock.
“Oh come on!” Tom shouted, covering his face in his hands as Jacob busted out laughing.
“It was the heat of the moment! We had a little too much and well, things escalated!” Harrison tried to explain, but Tom was already muttering curse words.
“If it helps, we realized we both really like each other.” You commented, laughing slightly as Harrison wrapped his arm around your shoulder.
“Dude I’ve never felt more alive, especially when we kissed, it was so good.” Harrison grinned, making your cheeks hot with embarrassment.
“Oh gross, shut up, I don’t need to hear anymore, I don’t want to know anymore, I just know I need to drain my pool now and get it cleaned instantly.” Tom whined, glaring at the both of you playfully before going back inside.
Jacob followed after, still laughing along with Zendaya, while you both stayed outside.
“I really like you Harrison.” You smiled, making his heart melt, he’d fallen for you since the first day you arrived on set.
“Trust me Y/N, I really like you too.” He murmured, wrapping his arms around your waist, pulling you closer, pressing his lips against yours.
You both stood outside for a bit, just kissing, while everyone else inside was dancing and singing.
You eventually pulled away, resting your forehead against his, smiles resting on both of your faces.
“Round two?” Harrison grinned, making you roll your eyes playfully, but nod in response.
You both started walking to the pool when the back door flew open, revealing an out of breath Tom.
When applying eyeshadow always blend colours upwards and occasionally outwards, this will make the eye look more awake and brighter as opposed to blending downwards which can cause a droopy effect to the eye.
Last week I shot with photographer, Martin Higgs on a new set of beauty images. We used to shoot together a lot, creating OTT beauty looks using mediums such as paint, treacle, prosthetics and Fullers Earth, to name but a few.
We thought it was time we got together again and produced some stunning work to update our portfolios.
I’ve seen this blown-out lip look trending recently, so I knew I wanted to recreate it within one of the 4 makeup looks. I combined metallic pigments with Pearl pigments and used them in a variety of ways to achieve different levels of glow to the skin, eyes and lips.
On the décolletage I mixed the pearl pigment with water and painted it onto the chest, shoulders and neck. I knew once the water dried it would leave behind the pigment in an even finish.
For the eyes I mixed the metallic pigment with a mixing medium and layered it over a cream coloured eyeshadow. Then, I gently feathered a touch of pearl pigment mixed with a clear body gloss to the very centre of the lids so it would catch the light.
I also added this same mix to the Cupid’s bow of the lip and to the centre of the bottom lip.
The rest of the bright colours were cream eyeshadows blended over the foundation which hadn’t been set. This means the product had some slip and made blending the products a dream!
- “can you do a scenario on how bts would seduce you”
wouldn’t have to do much, and he knows that. he knows he can get you dripping just by looking at you. however, he’d use his words more than his hands. whispering dirty things in your ear such as “I know you want my cock princess, use your words and maybe you’ll get it” touching you occasionally. he wouldn’t even need to ask, he’d just raise an eyebrow at you to see if you were down, and of course you were.
wouldn’t dirty talk at all, all he had to do was sweet talk and body worship you until you were a mess in his hands. hed bite his lips at you and look you up and down in public to get you going. hed send you a few suggestive texts every now and again until all you could think of doing was riding him. when you knocked his door at 1AM, hed crash his plump lips onto yours
“its about time, babygirl. I’ve been waiting for this”
Just like RM, he wouldn’t have to do much. it was 2AM and you were supposed to be helping suga with a few songs, as you were a talented song writer. but the amount of sexual tension between you both had you rubbing your thighs together the whole time.
just like RM, he wouldn’t have to do much. you were in his studio, at 2 AM, you were supposed to be helping him with a few songs as you were a talented song writer just like he is. however the amount on sexual tension was getting to you, it had you rubbing your thighs together. the members often joked how you and yoongi would act like a couple but in your mind you were just friends. However, in his mind, it was completely different. he’d always gaze at you in a certain way, which he knew would have you flustered pretty quickly. he took his time, but he finally made a move, he started rubbing your thighs, he shot you a glance, you gulped as he carried on going closer to your core. it wasn’t long before you were putty in his hands, and he had you riding him, right there in the studio.
you knew he’d had a crush on you since you were kids. however, you were nothing more than his dance partner; when he invited you to the dance studio after hours, you were unsure of his intentions. you were only certain of one thing, he looks so fucking hot sweating. you were dancing to the sensual music. he watched you intently as you moved your hips to the music. it was your solo part, he soon came up behind you and started dancing with you, he started moving his hand up and down you body, which wasn’t apart of the choreo but you didn’t complain. you whimpered as he found your sensitive sport. he peppered kisses up your neck from behind. you hesitantly moaned. it wasn’t long before he was fucking you against the mirror, forcing you to watch yourself as he took you from behind, knowing how easily he got to you.
you had the biggest crush on jimin, and he knew this. but never in a million years did you suspect he would feel the same. you were nothing but his makeup artist. as you’d blend his eyeshadow. he’d twitch his eyes to tease you so you’d mess up. or when you’d apply lip tint to his lips, he’d wink and smirk at you. so you would get flustered.
it was late, you were just cleaning up and waiting for your shift to end. jimin was in the room with you, you wiped your forehead and sat down.
he nudged you with his foot, smirking at you. you smiled and sighed at the same time
“I know you like me y/n” he’d coo, still nudging you and smiling widely.
“yeah and? what are you going to do about it?” you challenge, he stood up and walked over to you, picking you up and throwing you over his shoulder, you giggled as he walked out of the building and into his car, taking you back to his place.
he placed you on his bed as he raised his eyebrow at you, you smiled. jimin preferred to use teasing when it came to seducing you. “how much do you wanna fuck me right now?” he’d cockily taunt, you’d just smile in response, he’d tell you to use your words and that when you muttered “alot” making him snap and strip you of your clothes.
As v’s stylist, is was your job to make sure he looked his best before stepping out onto red carpets, it was just you and him in his dressing room, you were neatening his tie when he pulled you closer by the waist, smirking down at you, at first you were confused by the gesture, but soon warmed up to it. he was incredibly handsome, you’d be stupid to resist. he licked his lips whilst he looked at yours, you gulped as you fondled with his tie. he grabbed your hand, stopping you from any further actions. he lean’t down and placed a soft kiss on your lips, as you gasped, he slid his tongue into your mouth and kissed you more rough. it wasn’t long before things escalated, and suddenly, you weren’t just his stylist anymore.
jungkook has been flirting with you for months, but it never seemed to work in his favor. he was an innocent virgin, never even touched a girl. he’d go red in the face every time he was near you, he was way too shy to make a move. that was, until, something pushed his buttons a little too much.
it was the last song of a performance, jungkook didn’t look happy or cheerful at all during it, he was mad, something was up.
after the performance was over, he practically stormed off stage, all the other members left puzzled.
“hey kookie, whats wrong?” you asked concerned. he pushed you up against the wall, pinning you to it. “i saw the way you were with jimin earlier, this isn’t fair! I’ve always liked you, since i met you, you practically threw yourself on him.” you went to fall to the ground as your knees became weak, but he placed his knee inbetween your thighs, stopping you from going anywhere.
he’s so hot when he’s jealous, that’s all you could think about. you bit your lip and pulled him into you, crashing your lips onto his, he unbuttoned his shirt and let it fall to the ground. smirking on how he seduced you.
