Applying eyeshadow can be pretty difficult specially if you are a beginner and have zero knowledge about it. The reason I made this tutorial is to help the beginners in eyeshadow or make up application. When choosing colors, you can never go wrong with neutrals. They are perfect for everyday wear. You don’t need to be a beauty guru to have beautiful looking eyes. All it takes is a little practice and more practice to be able to get the perfect blend of eyeshadow colors. 

Try these simple steps of eyeshadow application and get on your way to be a beauty of envy.

1. Clean up your face by washing it or by applying facial toner. Professional make up artists prefer to apply eye primer first on their clients eyelid so the eyeshadow can hold for longer hours. But, if you will only wear it on a casual day and you have no problem with retouching your eyeshadow then you can do it without a primer. Apply a concealer on areas with uneven skin tone.

2. Choose three colors from your eyeshadow palette. You must have a light, medium and dark shade to start. If you are not sure about which shades to choose then go for the neutral shades like peach, browns, nude shades or beige. Apply the lightest color all over your eyelid and on your brow bone. Also apply it on the inner corner of your eyes to make your eyes appear fresh and awake.

3. Take the darker shade of the eyeshadow and apply it on your eyelid. This is the most common technique used for those with hooded eyes because it can make the eyelid more noticeable. Make sure to apply evenly and don’t forget to blend.

4. Take the medium shade of the eyeshadow and apply it on your crease. It can help in defining the shape of your eyes. Make sure to cover the whole area of the eyeball. Don’t forget to blend. For hooded eyes, it’s okay to go a little bit above the crease.

5. Line your upper lash line with a dark eye pencil to make an illusion of thicker eyelashes. Just blend them out to make it appear more natural. We don’t want a harsh black line on the lash line. 

6. To make your eyes appear bigger, line half of the lower lash line with dark pencil then apply white eyeliner on the lower waterline for a fresh looking eyes.

7. Curl your eyelashes using eyelash curler. To really open up your eyes you can wear falsies. There are variety of false eyelashes in the market. If you are wearing eyeshadow for a casual every day look you may opt for a not so dramatic eye lashes. For hooded eyes like mine, you can select a pair of falsies that feature long and short strands, with the longest lashes right above your pupil. But, in this tutorial, I opted not to wear falsies anymore.

8. Apply 2-3 coats of mascara and you are done.

9. The effect should be soft and natural looking eyes that you will not be afraid to wear during day time and on a casual day. You can pair it with  earth shades of lippies. You may wear this eyeshadow at night just go a little bolder by pairing it with a darker shade of lipstick.

More Tricks:

- To make eyes appear awake and bigger, apply a white or nude eye pencil on the waterline.
- Put a highlighter shade on your brow bone to add a lift to your face.
- Clean any fall outs using a wet q tip to achieve a clean crisp look.
- Invest in a good eye primer to boost your eye makeup and help keep shadow on for long.
- Brushes are equally important in making a gorgeous eye makeup. So, invest in some basic brushes.

Lately with my foundation I’ve been using a beauty blender but it seemed like i wasn’t getting the coverage I need, but I DO get the coverage I need from MAC 187 duo fiber brush BUT it never seems like my foundation blends into my skin very well. So today I decided to spritz my brush with water and my foundation went on a million times better. And that was my discovery today ;)

100% Authentic

a vampire tells his epic life story: love, betrayal, loneliness, and hunger.

dir.: neil jordan
drama / fantasy / horror

brad pitt as louis de pointe du lac
tom cruise as lestat de lioncourt
kirsten dunst as claudia
stephen rea as santiago
antonio banderas as armand
christian slater as daniel malloy

some facts:

  • all the actors playing vampires were required to hang upside down for up to 30 minutes at a time during the make-up application. this would force all the blood in their bodies to rush to their heads, causing the blood vessels in their faces to bulge out. the make up artists would then trace over the swollen veins creating the eerie translucent-skinned vampire look. unfortunately for the actors, they would have to repeat the process several times over, as the blood would quickly drain from their heads. this, in part, accounts for the lengthy make-up process.
  • in an article released in september 2011, brad pitt revealed that he had a miserable experience while making this film. he complained of discomfort while wearing his costumes and colored contacts and being forced to play second fiddle to tom cruise, both on screen and off. he said at one point he called his friend and producer david geffen and begged him for a way out. learning that there was no way, he toughed it out for the remaining months.
  • in the book, the reason why louis becomes depressed in the beginning of the movie is because he feels guilty about the death of his brother; not because he had a wife and child that died. in fact, he never had a wife in the book version.
  • christian slater was given the role of daniel upon the death of river phoenix, who was originally supposed to be daniel. slater donated his $250,000 salary to 2 of phoenix’ favorite charities.
  • tom cruise wanted a private set, and hence tunnels were built to escort the actors to and from the set. this was done so that the vampire’s makeup effects would remain a secret.
  • author anne rice wrote the original part of lestat for the 1976 novel with rutger hauer in mind. the rights to the novel were optioned by paramount for $150,000 before the book was first published. john travolta was then earmarked to play lestat but drácula (1979), nosferatu the vampyre (1979), and love at first bite (1979) put the project into turnaround. by the time a movie was to be filmed, hauer and travolta had become too old to portray the ever-young vampire. upon learning that tom cruise had been cast, she was quite disappointed and expressed concern that cruise could not carry the part. after attending a screening, rice wrote a letter of apology, quite pleased with cruise’s portrayal.
  • although the screen credits read “screenplay by anne rice based on her novel”, the script was actually heavily rewritten by director neil jordan. writers guild rules meant that rice got credit.
  • stephen rea studied french comedy and pantomime to prepare for his role as santiago. the scene in which he dances up the tunnel wall and ceiling was inspired by fred astaire’s famous scene in boda real (1951).
  • kirsten dunst shared her first on-screen kiss in this film with brad pitt, even though there was an 18-year age difference between them. in a subsequent interview, she revealed the scene had made her uncomfortable. she remarked: “i thought it was gross, that brad had cooties. i mean, i was 12.”
  • 1st film production to be given permission to close down two lanes of traffic on the golden gate bridge.
  • the character louis’ full name is louis de pointe du lac. louis was based on anne rice as she grieved for her deceased daughter, michelle. louis was even given anne rice’s birthday of 4 october.
  • louis describes claudia as 5 years old in the novel, but kirsten dunst was 12 years old at the time of filming.
  • a gay subtext to the novel was omitted from the film; lestat expects louis to sleep with him; lestat, louis (and later claudia) are a perverse family with lestat as the father, louis as the mother and claudia as their daughter, etc. anne rice mentions “stone walls” in the novel, which could be an oblique reference to the gay rights movement of the same name.
  • the character lestat’s full name is lestat de lioncourt. he was based on anne rice’s husband stan rice, and even given stan rice’s birthday of 7 november.
  • tom cruise spent 3 and a half hours every day in the make-up chair.

MAC Cosmetics Brow Set (8g) - Application Tips, Mini Review and Swatches!

(If you are viewing from my homepage please click the photo to see more!)

The ‘MAC Cosmetics Brow Set’ is a long-lasting brow gel that will keep your brow hairs tamed throughout the day. It not only locks your brows into place, but this highly pigmented product adds definition, shine and shape whilst still remaining remarkably natural. The ‘Brow Set’ formula ensures your brows are never stiff, flaky or dry, which also enables you to use the ‘Brow Set’ to groom and sculpt your lashes, sideburns and other facial hair!

Application: I would highly recommend applying the ‘Brow Set’ with a light hand, to just gently comb the brows with the wand. Especially if you are using a gel that contains a tint. The reason being is it is easier to gradually build-up the intensity than to apply too much and have to remove the product and start all over again.

Tip: The ‘MAC Cosmetics Brow Set’ can be used on their own or over other brow products, such as - liquid brow pens, eyebrow pencils, brow gelcremes/pomades and powder eyeshadows.

Shades available (In the UK): Clear (Colour-free), Beguile (Full-bodied Taupe) and Show-off (Rich Brown)

Shades available (In the US): Clear (Colour-free), Beguile (Full-bodied Taupe), Show-off (Rich Brown) and Girl Boy (Fawn-blonde)

SUQQU Liquid Brow Pen (0.7ml) - Application Tips, Mini Review and Swatches!

(If you are viewing from my homepage please click the photo to see more!)

The ‘SUQQU Liquid Brow Pen’ is a fine brush tip pen. It is available in 2 highly pigmented shades, ‘01 Moss Green’ and ‘02 Brown’. The ‘Liquid Brow Pen’ is completely waterproof and oil-resistant, making the longevity of this product phenomenal! Once the product has set/dried it does not move, so there is no need to worry if you get stuck in the rain, your brows will stay put! I must admit at first it does take a little bit of getting used too, but once you have the hang of it it will more than likely become your go-to brow pen!

Application: I recommend applying the ‘Liquid Brow Pen’ in light feather strokes (in the direction of hair growth), this way you will have full control over creating natural looking brows. The ‘Brow Pen’ can either be used to fill in sparse areas or can be used to completely transform your brows!

If you have dark/ashy brown or black hair I would recommend using the shade ‘01 Moss Green’, or you could use both ‘01 Moss Green’ and ‘02 Brown’ together, to create a softer polished finish. 

If you have blonde or light/medium brown hair I would recommend using the shade ‘02 Brown’.

Tip: To keep your brows in place, whatever the weather, I would highly recommend using a brow gel. Brow Gels are an excellent way to keep your brow hairs tamed for hours! They are available from high-street and high-end brands and come in a variety of shades, ranging from Clear to the Darkest Brown/Black! (Brow Gels can either be used on their own or over other brow products, such as - liquid brow pens, eyebrow pencils, brow gelcremes/pomades and powder eyeshadows)

The ‘Brow Set’ Brow Gels from MAC Cosmetics are my personal favourite to use on myself and in my kit! To see Application Tips, Mini Review and Swatches for the ‘MAC Cosmetics Brow Set’ - Click HERE!
