sheer powder

Hi! Do you have any tips to prevent liquid eyeliner from smudging onto the eyelid? Especially for all-day wearing. Thanks :)

When it comes to getting the perfect winged liner it can take a fair amount of time to perfect and it is often not without the help of cotton tips and eye makeup remover. If getting your eyeliner perfect wasn’t frustrating enough on its own, having it smudge all over the place after a couple of hours after applying certainly is.

Use a good eyelid primer (and set it!)

Even if you don’t plan on wearing any eyeshadow, an eyelid/shadow primer is something that can really benefit  you if you have issues with mascara and eyeliner smudging. I’m obsessed with the NARS Pro-Prime Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow Primer because it mattifies the eyelids and keeps everything in place. I also recommend setting your eyeshadow primer with a bit of loose powder or sheer eyeshadow in a beige shade, this will help further lock the primer into place so your liner will stay longer.

Use a waterproof, long-wearing eyeliner

This is something that is relatively obvious, but if you tend to have issues with oiliness on the eyelids/makeup smudging you should be using an eyeliner that has exception staying power. I swear by the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner, it comes in a variety of shades and stays put through heat and humidity. There are drugstore brands that do great liquid liners, but if you’re after intense staying power it’s not really worth wasting your time (or money) with them.

Set Your Eyeliner

If you’re using a liquid liner it’s probably because you want a beautiful, crisp clean liner, in which case this tip might not be for you. If you don’t mind a softer effect to your eyeliner and eye makeup then you can really benefit you. After applying your liquid liner, use a small brush to apply some black eyeshadow directly over the top of the liquid, tracing the shape carefully. This will help get rid of any of the moisture in the eyeliner and make it drier and therefore less likely to smudge.

Set Your Concealer

You’re probably thinking “huh,  I have issues with my eyeliner not my concealer?” but if smudging eye makeup is a big issue for you, setting your concealer underneath your eyes may just fix that. Eye makeup (especially mascaras and eyeliners) tend to be attracted to creamy products on the face such as concealers.

Any good setting powder for under eye concealer? I have dry under eyes so I don't want it to look cakey or wrinkly

A little concealer is great for brightening up the under eye area and concealing dark circles but setting it into place can be a nightmare.

zaeali  asked:

What is the best way to apply translucent power on darker skin tones, so it does not come up white on camera, with flash. I hate when I have good picture, but my under eye looks white when flash is used. or what would recommend to use instead of a translucent power?

Hello :)

Translucent powder tends to look white/ghostly on most people in flash photos so i’d recommend going for a slightly tinted translucent powder. Not only will it look more flattering on deeper skin tones in real life but it will prevent that white flash black!

Check out products like

Ben Nye Translucent Powders. They come in quite a few shades, Banana being the most popular for under eye highlighting, but all give a sheer tint of color and are super silky! 

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder. It’s ever so slightly tinted and not stark white.

MAC Select Sheer Loose Powder. Comes in many shades and gives a sheer, silky finish.

Covergirl Translucent Powder. Comes in a few shades as well, great budget option!

Kylie Jenner’s Beauty Routine Costs How Much?

Makeup: “If I’m going to see people, I won’t wear heavy makeup. It’s not attractive on me,” Kylie says. “When you see those pictures on my Instagram, they are usually for when I’m doing a photo shoot or an interview. Every time I get my makeup professionally done, I take a photo.” Lipliner, a light foundation, bronzer, and lashes are the basics of her routine, she says. Her favorites are: Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation ($45), NARS Orgasm Blush ($30), Ardell Natural Wispies Eye Lashes ($9.99), Lancôme Hypnôse Drama mascara($27.50), Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit ($40), Anastasia Beverly Hills Concealer ($20),Kardashian Beauty Bronzer ($14.99), Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Pressed Powder ($38),Anastasia Beverly Hills Highlighting Duo Pencil ($23), and Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Leg Makeup ($12.99).

I want a version of Chopped but with makeup. Like, “You have ten minutes to create a work-appropriate makeup look. Your Makeup Bag includes a sheer concealer, powder that’s way too dark, and a crappy eyebrow pencil. You can supplement this look with up to three other products from the Vanity, but you MUST USE all of the surprise products. Artists, begin.”
