more spots

anonymous asked:

I have a question about setting powder. This sounds so dumb but..how do you use it?? I mean I KNOW how but no matter what I do, it always shows. I use a bit of translucent powder after reading that you should set your liquid foundation. So I'll dab it in my more oily spots and usr a wet blender to wipe the excess away but it ALWAYYYYS shows.

K so, here’s a guide to setting powder.

There are two different types of powder; pressed and loose. Pressed powder is harder to go overboard with because when you dip your brush into the pan, you don’t get a ton of product and that being said, it’s also generally less pigmented. I find pressed powder is better for setting an entire face of makeup to combat oil. Loose powder is a lot more pigmented and you can get a lot more product at once and so I find it’s better for baking.

Where you need to set with powder depends on your skin type. Those with oily skin will probably need to set all over their face but those with dry skin only need to set the areas where their foundation tends to break down and crease. For me, I set underneath my eyes, the tip of my nose because my husband’s nose is oily and he ends up stealing all the makeup off my nose, I lightly dust powder over the areas I contour, and I use powder to clean up my contour as well.

There are certain types of loose translucent powders that have the consistency of corn starch and never blend fully into the skin which is definitely where your problem could lie! The best loose powder I’ve ever found is the NYC Smooth Skin Loose Powder because it’s incredibly silky and melts into the skin unlike any other powder I’ve ever used. The only downside is that NYC products aren’t being produced in the US anymore so you have to order it online.

So the steps to application are:

1. Apply your foundation and concealer.

2. Using a Beauty Blender, dip just the tip into your powder, then press it into the areas of your face that crease/wear off during the day and you won’t be contouring over, blending it in thoroughly. It’s much better to apply too little at first and have to go back than to apply too much and end up looking cakey. A general rule of thumb is that if you have to dust powder off, you’ve applied too much.

3. Now, using a brush, take a veeeery light amount of powder and dust over all the areas you’ll be contouring (cheeks, jawline, sides of the nose, forehead, etc.) This is important because trying to blend a contour over a foundation that’s still tacky can be a disaster and make it end up looking patchy. Therefore, like I always say, powder blends better over powder and your contour will blend out a lot more seamlessly.

And the reason we don’t do this step with a Beauty Blender is because when you apply your powder with a BB, it can stay slightly wet since your sponge is wet but it’s obviously important that this step is dry.

4. Contour and then bake if desired. And to touch on the whole baking trend, you do not need to bake to the extremity that you see it on Instagram. Baking only works for those who are doing stage acting (AKA drag queens) or those working in front of the camera (AKA beauty bloggers) because it makes you look flawless on camera and in front of bright lights but in person will make you look very cakey. I bake underneath my contour because it’s very hard for your cheeks to look cakey. It’s under the eyes, nose, forehead, and chin that can look cakey the easiest. Know what I mean? I think you know what I mean.

Breath of the Wild DLC includes Tingle costume, other non-Tingle content ⊟

Nintendo detailed the first of two DLC packs being released as part of that Breath of the Wild Expansion Pass. The “Master Trials” DLC includes a weird grab bag of modes, including:

  • Trial of the Sword: 45 rooms or so of enemies for Link to defeat, starting with no equipment. Completing this unlocks the Master Sword’s glowing ability full time!
  • Hard Mode: It’s harder! Enemies are tougher (they “rank up” to the next toughest version), they recover health, they spot Link more easily. Also for some reason there are now floating planks with enemies and treasure chests on them.
  • Hero’s Path Mode: Wow! It now traces your steps over the previous 200 hours! You can fine tune the data too.
  • Travel Medallion: An item will appear… somewhere… that lets you create a travel point anywhere you want.
  • Korok Mask: Shakes when there’s a Korok nearby, which is always.
  • New Equipment: Eight new items: “Once discovered by the player, they will yield equipment themed after fan-favorite games and characters such as Midna, Tingle, Phantom and Majora’s Mask.”

I’m in for the Tingles.

Also! Today, the game has been updated to allow players to use one audio language and another text language. Japanese with English subtitles! Or Russian with Italian subtitles! Mix it up!

Solar System: Things to Know This Week

It’s the time of year for summer break, swimming, and oh, yes storms. June 1 marks the beginning of hurricane season on the Atlantic coast, but we’re not alone. Our neighboring planets have seen their fair share of volatile weather, too (like the Cassini spacecraft’s view of the unique six-sided jet stream at Saturn’s north pole known as “the hexagon”). 

This week, we present 10 of the solar system’s greatest storms.

1. Jupiter’s Great Red Spot

With tumultuous winds peaking at 400 mph, the Great Red Spot has been swirling wildly over Jupiter’s skies for at least 150 years and possibly much longer. People saw a big spot on Jupiter as early as the 1600s when they started stargazing through telescopes, though it’s unclear whether they were looking at a different storm. Today, scientists know the Great Red Spot has been there for a while, but what causes its swirl of reddish hues remains to be discovered. More >

2. Jupiter’s Little Red Spot

Despite its unofficial name, the Little Red Spot is about as wide as Earth. The storm reached its current size when three smaller spots collided and merged in the year 2000. More >

3. Saturn’s Hexagon

The planet’s rings might get most of the glory, but another shape’s been competing for attention: the hexagon. This jet stream is home to a massive hurricane tightly centered on the north pole, with an eye about 50 times larger than the average hurricane eye on Earth. Numerous small vortices spin clockwise while the hexagon and hurricane spin counterclockwise. The biggest of these vortices, seen near the lower right corner of the hexagon and appearing whitish, spans about 2,200 miles, approximately twice the size of the largest hurricane on Earth. More>

4. Monster Storm on Saturn 

A tempest erupted in 2010, extending approximately 9,000 miles north-south large enough to eventually eat its own tail before petering out. The storm raged for 200 days, making it the longest-lasting, planet-encircling storm ever seen on Saturn. More >

5. Mars’ Dust Storm 

Better cover your eyes. Dust storms are a frequent guest on the Red Planet, but one dust storm in 2001 larger by far than any seen on Earth raised a cloud of dust that engulfed the entire planet for three months. As the Sun warmed the airborne dust, the upper atmospheric temperature rose by about 80 degrees Fahrenheit. More >

6. Neptune’s Great Dark Spot

Several large, dark spots on Neptune are similar to Jupiter’s hurricane-like storms. The largest spot, named the “Great Dark Spot” by its discoverers, contains a storm big enough for Earth to fit neatly inside. And, it looks to be an anticyclone similar to Jupiter’s Great Red Spot. More >

7. Sun Twister 

Not to be confused with Earth’s tornadoes, a stalk-like prominence rose up above the Sun, then split into about four strands that twisted themselves into a knot and dispersed over a two-hour period. This close-up shows the effect is one of airy gracefulness. More >

8. Titan’s Arrow-shaped Storm 

The storm blew across the equatorial region of Titan, creating large effects in the form of dark and likely “wet” from liquid hydrocarbons areas on the surface of the moon. The part of the storm visible here measures 750 miles in length east-to-west. The wings of the storm that trail off to the northwest and southwest from the easternmost point of the storm are each 930 miles long. More >

9. Geomagnetic Storms

On March 9, 1989, a huge cloud of solar material exploded from the sun, twisting toward Earth. When this cloud of magnetized solar material called a coronal mass ejection reached our planet, it set off a chain of events in near-Earth space that ultimately knocked out an entire power grid area to the Canadian province Quebec for nine hours. More >

10. Super Typhoon Tip

Back on Earth, Typhoon Tip of 1979 remains the biggest storm to ever hit our planet, making landfall in Japan. The tropical cyclone saw sustained winds peak at 190 mph and the diameter of circulation spanned approximately 1,380 miles. Fortunately, we now have plans to better predict future storms on Earth. NASA recently launched a new fleet of hurricane-tracking satellites, known as the Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System (CYGNSS), which will use the same GPS technology you and I use in our cars to measure wind speed and ultimately improve how to track and forecast hurricanes.
