Smokey Eyes

Today i am going to show my smokey eye technique.There are smokey eye technique step by step:

1-apply base on your eyelid,(you can apply primer or liquid base or Luscious Studio Fix Concealer as it works as an eye primer also),and use the tape for even application several types of smokey eyes,some are very intense,some are soft some are gothic its up to your personal choice.I am going to show you this and guideline.

2-Apply any creamy black eyeshadow or crayon blac
k soft pencil on your entire eyelid.

3-Now take an all over eye shadow brush and blend the colour in the crease and make it soft and even.

4-Now take any black eye shadow or You can use eye shadow "Smoke"by luscious cosmetic it would work very well.

5-Now take blender brush(i am using luscious cosmetics brush) or any eye shadow brush apply any goldnish(antique gold colour by luscious cosmetics) or silverish(thunder may work well) eyeshadow on your brow bone.and blend properly both colours together so that there may not be any harsh lines.

6-Now remove tape,you can see how neat and even the line is :).Now apply white creamy pencil in your water line and a little bit on your lower lid.
TIP:Why i applied white eyeliner because i have seen when people do smokey eye look thier eyes appear small in size so if you will apply white eyeliner on your water line it
will give the illusion od brightness.

7-Now take the colour you had applied on your brow bone dab on your white eyeliner.Dont rub it just dab the colour on lower lid.It will brighten up the look,and will make it even more obvious.

8-Now take liquid eyeliner which you can use catwalk eyeliner provided by luscious cosmetic because its handy,here i m using cake eyeliner with eye liner brush,i m using luscious eye liner brush its very managable and handy it has firm bristle so that the application is smooth.I am appleing that on my lower lid and you can extend outward for cat eye look.

9-grooming of eyebrows is very important part in makeup.When you are done with you eye makeup,dont forget your eyebrows.Apply eyeshadow or pencil and blend it with brush.Use the colour according to your natural brow colour.I have natural intense black eyebrows so i just dab a little black eye shadow at the centre of my brow.

10-That's the final look.For more drama you can fix fake lashes and contact lenses.
Stay Happy!

Sanitizing-A major Issue Regarding Personal Health And Makeup

Before getting in to other techniques and areas of makeup i would love to share my personal habbit and experiance to the girls who are reading this blog or love to do makeup and grooming.The basic thing is cleanliness and sanitizing.Still there are many people who are not aware of sanitizing the makeup tools,and not only makeup tools there are many things by taking care of them you will realise how important was to take care of them,there are few steps i want to go with:

1-wash your makeup tools,brushes and sponges.After aplying makeup and spending 6-7 hourse in it in teh end of the day or night you have to wash that away.In the same way you have to wash them if you are not cleaning and washing them that means you are applying the dust,all the old makeup product,sebum,oil again on to your skin and that can result in to break outs and pimples and other horrible stuff.Was your sponge after every use or wash it before applying makeup because usually base is applyed by damp sponge so wash it before applying base.May be you people might think that its not that important but i m telling you its important to wash them.Wash brushes by which you have aplied liquid stuff (liquid foundation,creamy makeup) because creamy makeup can reproduce the rate of bacteria even higher than of powder makeup.Use eye shadow aplicator after every 3-4 uses because as we all know the delicate part of our face is eyes so its important to cleam them.

2-Wash your hand or use sanitizer before applying makeup because you may use your hands for some precise application.

3-wash your hair daily,Girls like me do have front cutting or some layer cut so when your hair would not be washed than we could expect any worst possible.

4-If you are fond of makeup then its better not to hav that long nails it may hurt your face anyways,If they are been kept clean and trimed that is another thing,but having normal size nails are better.

5-Change your bed sheet back to back after few days or week.Beacuse thats our resting area.

6-Drink 1.5 litre of water daily,its good for health and even skin,so that your skin will remain hydrated.

7-Discart product after expiry Date.

8-Use the cosmetic reharding face cleansing or makeup according to your skin type

9-Tighten the cap of the product after use.

10-Always,always,always properly clean you makeup beafore sleeping.

So,there are some tips to change and spice up your life style :) i hope you would like it.And if you want to add up any thing feel free to share :) stay HappY!
