How To Apply Eye Makeup Base

Great Day! Eye makeup base is used before you apply eye shadow color, to prevent the shadow from running and clumping in your crease and the wrinkles around your eyes. It also causes the eye shadow to last longer and prevents those little sprinkles of powder that fall underneath your eyes.

Here's a few tips on how to apply eye cream or powdered eye shadow base:

Select an eye cream base or powdered form eye shadow base. Choose a color that closely resembles your own skin tone. There are both light and dark shades available so test a variety of base colors before settling on the right one.

Tap your middle or ring finger into your eye base makeup cream. If you are using a powder base, use a regular eye shadow brush.

Apply the base gently with your ring finger, middle finger, or eye shadow brush all over your eyelid, in the crease and all the way up to your brow bone. If you are using a cream, ensure it's rubbed in completely.

Gently blend the base well with your skin, so that it doesn't look like you are wearing obvious color making sure to avoid a visible line. The base should lighten your eyes and brighten them, but not color them dramatically.

Check your application in natural light. If it appears that you have applied too much base, and then rub it off gently with a tissue paper or a new brush.

Keys to Healthy Natural Hair Style

Keys to Healthy Natural Style

Healthy hair is the foundation for any great natural style. One of the most important means to that end is maintaining clean hair. There is a correct way and an incorrect way to shampoo the hair. When hair is wet it is in its weakest state. Rough handling can damage the hair. Never ever brush wet hair.

Make sure to shampoo your hair under a flow of water (in the shower or under a skin faucet).

Apply shampoo and work it into lather by gently massaging your scalp (the lather helps lift up the dirt).

Try not to force your fingernails into our scalp or get your nails caught up in your hair. This can cause tangles and unnecessary breakage.

Do not rub the hair together like you would a piece of hand-washed laundry; instead gently work the shampoo through to the ends. This avoids disrupting the cuticles too much.

Rinse the shampoo out thoroughly, allowing the water to flow throughout the hair.

Be sure not to rub the hair with your towels too aggressively. This can be abrasive and damaging. Try squeezing the excess water out, and then wrap the towels around your head for five minutes or so to absorb the excess water.
