waterproof liner

sinewaverider  asked:

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.

Toudou Jinpachi make up tutorial

So I got a ton of compliments at Sakura Con on my make up for everyone’s favourite sleeping beauty Toudou Jinpachi. So I thought I would share what I did with the world! This will be very long, so I’m gonna go ahead and put it under a Read More after step 3 or 4 or something.

Things I Used:
-so many make up brushes (spooley brush, liner brush, powder brush, make up sponge, domed shadow brush, lip liner brush)
-NARS creamy concealer in Chantilly
-Urban Decay powder foundation in Fair Neutral
-Urban Decay: Naked On The Run palette
-Urban Decay: Naked Basics 2 palette
-Urban Decay: 24/7 glide on eye pencil in Perversion
-Urban Decay mascara Perversion
-Stila: Stay All Day waterproof liquid liner in Intense Black
-NYX Wonder Pencil in WP01 Light/Clair
-Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water
-Burts Bees chapstick
-CeraVe moisturizer
-Reference pictures!!! (I recommend one of the character, and one of another fellow cosplayer who’s make up you really like if you can find one!)

The make up I use is all rather high end stuff (perks of working at ULTA), but go ahead and use whatever similar products you have! Just make sure your shadows and contours and bronzers don’t have shimmer or anything, make everything matte! Cheap brands I recommend are ELF Cosmetics and NYX Cosmetics. You can find ELF at Target, I believe they also have NYX products…but ULTA has a far larger selection of NYX products. I think most drugstores also have a pretty average selection for NYX…go ahead and browse around!


Wash your face and moisturize with your favourite moisturizer (Cera Ve is my favourite), also apply any acne medication you may use at this point. Also put on your chapstick now and let it soak in while you do the rest of your face. Put on your wig cap to avoid messing up your make up later! It also keeps your hair out of your face.
(*edit: I forgot to mention, if you also have a foundation primer USE IT HERE. I use the Smashbox Primer Water because my skin is super sensitive and reacts badly to any primer with silicone in it, which is most facial primers. All sorts of primers give different results, so go ahead and try some if you’re interested! They keep your foundation nice and even and provide a good base to put your concealer and foundation onto. They of course aren’t required, but a nice little bonus if you can afford them and find one that works well for you and your skin!)


Conceal all of your blemishes! I have a ton of them.


Apply your favourite foundation! I would recommend using your favourite matte foundation. Also be sure to cover your ears! Ears get red too. Don’t forget your neck either. If you use a liquid foundation, or a BB cream or CC cream then make sure to set it all with a powder when your done, to make sure it doesn’t melt off your face during the con or during photo shoots. I recommend the ELF High Definition Powder, it’s super cheap and can be found at Target.


Apply your bronzer, apply it to your temples, along your hairline, under your cheekbones and along your jaw.

A tip when applying bronzer and contouring for a guy, is to apply your bronzer and concealer in this pattern. Under your cheekbone, but bring it down towards your jaw. JUST MAKE SURE TO BLEND BLEND BLEND IT ALL OUT.

(This is where a bunch of pictures start to happen so the rest is under a Read More tab)

mymomfoundmypreviousaccount  asked:

Hey! Do you have any tips for removing mascara/ eyebrow makeup without losing any lashes/ eyebrow hairs? My eyebrows arent thick anymore!

Mascara, Eyeliner, Brow Pencil, Brow Gel… We put our eyes & face through a lot to get gorgeous looking makeup. Whilst some makeup is still prone to smudging and moving about all over the place, nowadays technology has meant that makeup is both incredibly long-wearing and difficult to remove and that’s not even necessarily waterproof products…

Layer Waterproof Products

If you insist on wearing waterproof, long wearing products try layering them on-top of regular, non waterproof products. Applying a coat of regular mascara and then a waterproof mascara means that the waterproof mascara will grip onto your regular mascara and not your lashes, making it easier to remove. This also works well for eyeliner and brow products too. As for lashes, tubular mascaras work really well if you want waterproof mascara without lash damage, just hop into the shower, and gently use your thumb and index finger to “wiggle” off the mascara (it will come off in tiny little tubes)

Use an Oil

We’ve often been taught to keep oil as far away as possible from our faces, but oils are actually one of the best things for your skin. When dealing with stubborn eye makeup an oil really is the best way to go as waterproof products are designed to withstand water, not oil. Just massage a cleansing oil (regular olive oil does the trick too) over your eyes and into your lashes to help break-up makeup. If you’re not a fan of directly using oil on your skin try an oil-based makeup remover like Trilogy Very Gentle Makeup Be Gone Cleansing Balm.

Double Cleanse

After removing the bulk of your makeup with an oil (or good makeup remover) it’s a good idea to go in with another cleanser, this will remove any oily residue and help to balance out your skin and leave it feeling fresh and clean. I’m a big fan of micellar waters because they’re gentle, yet effective (you’d be surprised at how much makeup is left on your skin from your first cleanse after using this) Bioderma Sensibio h2o is my preferred micellar water.

Neutral Staked Smoky Eye: Tartelette tutorial

Sorry for the wait! My computer’s been down half the week so I’ve only just started to clear the backlog of unedited photos and posts.

Here’s a quick sculpted smoky eye using nothing but neutrals, but I also added stacked liners, a metallic brown on top of a black. Steps are all above and products used are listed below!

  • Shu Uemura Hard Formula 9 Pencil in Grey
  • Tarte Tartelette palette
  • Marc Jacobs Magic Marc’er Precision Pen
  • Tarte Clay Pot Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner in Bronze
  • Benefit They’re Real Mascara in Black

If you want a softer look, all you need to do is substitute shades 2, 3, and 4 with lighter colors. 

P.S. For those who asked, you can absolutely use this palette for school and work. Just use softer shades and stick with only one darker color along the lashes. (Or just wear stacked liner and keep your lids clean with a single skin-toned eyeshadow from any brand!)

The cheapskate’s art supplies!!

I always get asked what I use to  to draw and all, and I always feel ashamed when replying, because it’s truly nothing fancy. I don’t have money to spend on the good stuff…
Now I’ll share my misery with all of you!

1. Brush pens from Tiger
2. Fountain pen I got at a bookshop in Romania
3. Set of gel pens I found at Ikea (Not waterproof)
4. UniPin fine liners (pretty good and also relatively cheap!)
5. Pelikan blue ink (it’s literally the only ink the sell in my town, I can’t even compare it to something else)
6. Dip pen I got on Ebay 

1. No idea where I got these. (Probably stole them from my sisters)
2. Mala markers I got at Ikea. The colors are very bright and vibrant (perfect if you draw like a preschooler)
3. Giotto colored pencils. (I use these A LOT)

1. Pebeo pocket watercolors (Pretty good, especially if you are broke and just looking at the price of other watercolors makes you cry)
2. Sakura Koi waterbrush I got on Ebay. (I suggest ordering more than one size at once, or you’ll have to wait a month for each brush to arrive at your house and that sucks)

My most precious possessions. My life has led to the moment where I’d have a box full of stationery. My greatest accomplishment. Always have something like this near your desk.

Anyways. I just wanna end with a little note to all you people who just wanna draw and have a good time: you don’t need to buy super expensive stuff to draw. Just learn how to use what’s around you wisely! You are not worth any less of someone who has the possibility to use more expensive tools!

WORTH THE HYPE: Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner

Given that I try new products all the time in my role as a beauty blogger, I critique products to the extreme so it  takes a lot for me to declare something a “holy grail” item. Some products just do not pass the mark when it comes to quality, Stila’s Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner is not one of these products. It can be difficult to find an eyeliner that has a thin enough tip to create small and precise lines, but Stila somehow managed to create a tip that is extra thin and flexible, but not too thin and flexible, meaning you have the perfect amount of control when applying your eyeliner.  I can only base my experience with this eyeliner on the black shade, but boy does this product have some pigmentation. It’s not pure jet black (which I prefer anyway, I find jet black can look a little harsh) but it’s pretty close too it. I don’t feel the need to go over the line multiple times in order to get it looking intense. As for the staying power, let me start by saying I have oily eyelids, wait, no, scratch that. Extremely oily eyelids. Mascaras and eyeliners are often prone to smudging on me and tend to  transfer into my crease throughout the day. Combine oiliness with hooded eyelids and it can be a struggle to find something that lasts. Stila’s Stay All Day Liner, however, does just that, it stays all day, every day. I can apply my eyeliner in the morning and it will still be in its perfect glory when I go to remove it in the evening, no smudging, no flaking, no smearing, no transferring and no fading. Some may argue that Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner is better, but for me Stila Stay All Day is my ultimate fave.

The new face of MAKE UP FOR EVER sounds off on festival looks and the perfect cat eye.

Like the icons of ’80s new wave, Charli XCX splits the difference between high glam and punk vigor. The prolific singer-songwriter and founder of her own label has never shied away from statement-making outfits or makeup. MAKE UP FOR EVER took note and asked her to be the face of its Aqua XL Eye Pencil Waterproof Liner collection, a colorful range for lively personalities who want makeup to match. The Sephora Glossy caught up with Charli and got the scoop on her approach to beauty—naturally, it’s all about experimentation. ARIANNA STERN

How did you react when MAKE UP FOR EVER approached you about this campaign?

Charli XCX: “I was so excited! I love the creative energy of MAKE UP FOR EVER. They create products that allow me to experiment and be free. When I wear makeup, I can feel all sorts of different things—sexy, demure, classic, futuristic. MAKE UP FOR EVER understands that it’s about more than just looking good.”

MAKE UP FOR EVER is known for vibrant colors. What’s the most out-there makeup color you’ve worn?

Charli XCX: “When we shot the campaign for Aqua XL, it was one of the first times I’ve experimented with yellow. Usually yellow as an eye color, people freak out about that, but it opened my world to yellow as a color for my eyes. It was fun to play with and create a statement look.”

What are your favorite beauty looks to wear using the Aqua XL pencil?

Charli XCX: “I’m going through a blue phase at the moment. I like my eyes to be electric, and blue does that for me. I also like classic black and brown for when I feel like going for a softer look.”

How would you wear the Aqua XL pencil to a festival?

Charli XCX: “Festivals are the dream place to wear the Aqua XL Eye Pencils! You can be totally bold and wild and still feel at home. I think I would do a multi-layered wing with lots of different colors, and maybe draw some cute stuff on my body too—that’s always a fun trend to experiment with at festivals.”

What are your other favorite MAKE UP FOR EVER products?

Charli XCX: “I love wearing Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation. It looks flawless when you put it on and it’s super lightweight.”

Are there any beauty techniques you worked hard to master?

Charli XCX: “Cat-eye winged liner. I don’t want to brag, but I think I’m pretty good at it! That’s something I’ve been doing since I was 14 years old, so it’s a natural [wrist] movement for me. I start from the inner corner of the eye and work my way out. It always looks really good onstage and in daily life, so it’s multifunctional for me.”

Are there any makeup trends you can’t stand?

Charli XCX: “I actually love all the makeup trends that are unconventional, like a strong lip liner or body glitter. I really think you should experiment with every trend because you never know, it might suit you. Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it!”

Does your makeup change with your sound?

Charli XCX: “When I create music that’s darker, with more bass and more sinister or mysterious lyrics, I always want to go fully gothic. I remember I did a night with my band where we all dressed totally gothic on stage. We were in Houston and we had safety pins in our hair and round our necks and loads of black lipstick and red eyeshadow.

When I make cute dance music though, I want to be completely bubblegum pink and glossy! So it does change, but I never feel like I’m playing a character—I still always feel like me.”

5 Alternatives to Black Eyeliner

Black eyeliner is great for adding drama to any look, creating razor sharp lines and giving loads of definition, but on a day to day basis or on someone with light features, it can often look a little heavy…


Browns often get a bad rep with eyeliner, but they’re actually one of  my favourite shades to use. A dark blackened brown gives a lot of definition, but is slightly softer than black, a light, a dusty brown gives a hint of definition and looks especially flattering on those with light features and a deep brown with flecks of shimmer flatters all eye colours and adds a little edge to your standard liner.

How To Keep Your Makeup Fresh in the Heat

Spring is here and the weather is heating up. Here are a few easy tricks and tips to help keep your makeup from sweating off your face (we’ve all been there) and to help keep it in place during a dip in the pool or a swim at the beach.

1. Prime: Before applying makeup, prep with primer. This sets your face you up for a fresh, dewy complexion for the rest of the day.

2. BB or CC cream: It’s lighter than foundation, but gives more coverage than a tinted moisturizer. They also have several skin benefits, such as sun protection and anti-aging effects.

3. Eyeshadow Primer: Even if you’re wearing a barely noticeably eyeshadow color, it can be clearly visible as the weather warms up. Avoid the crease of excess color gunk and prime your lids with a good primer!

4. Waterproof liquid liner or mascara: Whether you plan on going for a swim or just going for a walk, a good waterproof liner or mascara will keep everything in place!

5. Set with translucent powder: Find a compact powder with brush set to stash in your purse to touch up as oil tends to build up throughout the day!

6. Lip stain: Rather than a thick gloss or lipstick, a lip stain is gives off a more natural and springtime appropriate look.

So, here’s a more wearable version of the Undercover AW 14 look: red eyeliner but much softer and less dramatic, for days when you need to look more toned down or don’t feel like drowning your face in powder.

[EDITORS NOTE: Only use red makeup that explicitly states it is safe to use on/around your eyes/waterline - please be safe!]
