After Party Speedy Makeup Removal Tips

When you have partied like there will be no tomorrow because it is the last day of the year the last thing anyone wants to think about when getting home is removing that grimy makeup. So I thought you should have a quick way to get your makeup off in a jiffy so as not to be tempted to snooze with it on. Just follow these simple tips and you will be in bed by the time you count 1, 2, 3... who am I kidding just count to 10..

  • wet a soft washcloth with warm water and gently move it around your face in a circular motion.
  • For a quick water-free cleanse, take a few seconds to apply moisturizer, then tissue it off
  • The best substitute for makeup removal and a face washing: Keep a stash of cleansing cloths in your nightstand. Run one over your face, using both sides, then hit the lights.

Hope these quick strategies help. Happy New Year..

New Years Eve Makeup Glam !

It's hard to deny that Taylor Swift looked gorgeous at her Wonderstruck fragrance launch which was held recently at Macys. I have to tell you I am in love with her lashes which look like they are about to take flight at any minute and her to die for red lips. Take note that even though Ms.Swift is fair skinned her skin is flawless. it is important especially for those of  you fair skinned gals to cancel out the redness from your skin especially when wearing red lipstick for that flawless finish, so that your skin doesn't look blotchy. Remember to select a concealer that works with your particular skin tone.
This is a great look to wear on new years eve, just fabulous.

Check out this great video which will get you ready to rock your red lips..

Charlize Theron Beauty Tips.

Have you ever seen the Jadore` commercials and you see the svelte and gorgeous Charlize Theron walking the runway? Yes she is fab! Ms. Theron is indeed beautiful and who wouldn't want to know what makeup tricks she has up her sleeves. Elle Magazine sat down and interviewed Ms. Theron on her beauty regimen and here are excerpts about what she has to say about her regimen.

What’s your best beauty tip? 
“My makeup artist, Shane Paish, is a genius. There isn’t a day that goes by when he doesn’t surprise me. One of the things he taught me is to use nude pencil eyeliner to outline the inside of my eyes for a brighter look when I’m feeling tired.

What’s your morning beauty routine
I just rinse my face with cold water — I don’t believe in overzealous cleansing — and then I apply La Roche-Posay 50 sunblock, a bit of foundation and mascara and I’m out the door.” 

And in the evenings? 
“I don’t use make-up remover — I simply wash my face with DiorSnow foaming cleanser and it removes absolutely everything. I’ve become extremely picky about the quality and efficiency of the cosmetics I use. I apply Dior Capture eye cream with a cotton swab and night cream. I like to change my cosmetics regularly so that my skin won’t become immune to the effects of the products. I’m getting over a Crème de la Mer phase.” 
What’s your fave beauty product? 

“I am completely addicted to Dior L’Or de Vie, an elixir that gives your skin an instant natural glow.”

Party Perfect Makeup Tips This Season

This weekend as we see another ball drop to announce another new year there will be tons of parties to go to and we all want to look picture perfect. Here are some tips to keep your face looking camera ready because you know your pictures one way or another will get snapped.

  • carry blotting papers - powders are great but blotting papers are more compact and they fit in your tiny bags much better and they won't break.
  • plump up your skin - if you are suffering from dry skin especially due to the weather, because it will get cold on New Years eve, make sure to apply your moisturizer first before putting on foundation. It will help cut down on the dryness and plump up the skin and allow the makeup to adhere better.
  • keep shadows in place - Have your eye shadows locked and ready by using a primer because for sure you will be sweating. Just apply it before your foundation and your eyes will jeep their boldness all night.
  • be brow read - Please get your brows done! What good is a beautiful makeup look with haggard brows, they will give your face an instant lift and complete the look.
Happy New Years Eve!!!

Fresh Holiday Makeup.

                            Image wire/
This holiday don't think you have to confined to the deep and dark colors of winter that have been the dominant trend. You can rock your pastels which frankly makes me think of spring. What I love about this season is that there is a look for everyone and it allows us to utilize what we already have instead of breaking the bank. What's not to love about that. 
For this look on  Selena Gomez , just break out your liner and rim your eyes up, you can go as strong or as light handed as you like. Also a pair of lashes will add that pop to this fresh look. swipe a pastel shade that works with your skin tone. For your cheeks make them pop with a fresh pink rose toned blush and wear a gloss or matte lip. I am going to try this... look out for my pics.

Get the Look for New Years Eve!

One of the hottest looks for this new years eve will be the black metallic smokey eye. The greatest thing about a smokey eye is that it doesn't have to be perfect . You can either use your liners  to create that smokey effect or your black shadow topped off with your favorite shimmer for a more vava voom effect. After all it is New years and nothing is wrong with a pop of shimmer. Pair the look with a nude lip or if you feel you need to go bold on the lip just make sure the look is balanced. Stay tuned for more hot new years eve trends.

Getting Matte with it - Lips!

As Christmas day approaches , I am sure there will be many parties and family functions that you might be attending. Some of you might be attending more than three for the day. So to ensure that your lipstick stays where it should be you can choose to use a lip liner alone or as a base to before applying your lipstick. If you want to experiment and utilize your shadows you can mix in a little of your shadow with your lipstick or lip gloss dabbing it on, taking care to remove the chunks as it might not be so smooth. Have a makeup fab holiday keeping your smackers in tact!

Spring Experiment!

Can you believe it that 2011 is almost finished? I am still shocked, but at least we have a lot of color in 2012 to splash on our faces. I thought we should get prepped by getting inspired by what Spring 2012 has to offer. If you want you can even experiment before hand so you know which colors you wanna rock. So for spring ditch the browns and have fun with your plums, magenta's and blues. You can pair it with a nude or bold lip. Check out this look below.

Here's an example of how you can pair your spring colors with a bold lip. I know for some that a light blue might not be flattering so you can opt for deeper shades of blue that work for your skin tone.
Happy Experimenting!
