How to Blend Eye Makeup

Great Day! Get Excited! Get Excited!! Thanks for stopping by. Blended eye makeup should look seamless and not create stiff or straight lines, unless you are attempting a specific look. Makeup on the eyes will blend better when a small amount of liquid foundation is applied to the eyelids and the area under the eyebrow.

Brush on eye shadow with a loose brush rather than a foam applicator to start with a more natural look. Apply the medium-colored eye shadow from a pre-packaged eye shadow trio to the eyelid. Highlight the area under the brow with the lightest color in the trio. Add the darkest color last, on the crease of the eyelid. Blend eye makeup only after you've applied all the eye shadow shades you want to wear.

Wait to apply eyeliner and mascara until after your eye shadow is blended. Use the brush you used to apply your accent color to blend your eye makeup so that you don't get your darker accent color on the brush you use for your other two lighter eye shadow colors.

Use a blending brush for applying and blending eye makeup. You'll get a much better end result. Move the makeup brush lightly across eyelids and under the eyebrows to blend eye shadow and remove any excess makeup.

Punch Up Your Beauty This Holiday

Get Excited! Get Excited!! The holiday season is here..What can a woman do to punch up her look without taking it all off and starting over for an afterwork holiday event?
Transitioning from work to evening is actually pretty easy if you prep yourself. Apply tinted moisturizer (or foundation), mascara and gloss or lipstick before work. After work, cover any blemishes by patting in a concealer (never rub).

Then follow these steps for either the smokey eye look or the deep red look:



For the Smokey Eye
1. Apply your eye makeup: Eyeliner on both top and bottom lashes (be sure to 'smudge it,' dark eyeliner will age you), a eye shadow primer, and a shimmery shadow on the lid. Don't apply any more mascara unless your earlier application has rubbed completely off, otherwise you risk getting clumpy lashes.
2. Dab a shimmery blush to cheeks.
3. Powder your face lightly.
4. Apply a light lipstick or gloss.



For Deep Red Lips
1. Cover unsightly veins on eyelids with a matte eyeshadow in a color that's as close as your skin tone as possible.
2. Apply a very light shimmery blush on cheeks.
3. Line lips and fill in with your favorite red color.
4. Powder face.




Which look will you wear to your holiday event? 
Smokey Eyes
Deep Red Lips
