LIP Tips

Check out the best Lip TIPS

Tuesdays are now all about your LIPS so make sure you check out Makeup Like A Pro on Facebook and check in on here for all my tips and tricks on keeping your lips fresh…

“Know thy balms” ! Look for hydrating ingredients like beeswax, shea butter, vitamin E and almond, jojoba or coconut oils

For extra KISSABLE lips… Take a water bottle with you wherever you go. Drinking enough water (the equivalent of at least 9 cups of fluids daily) will keep the body, skin and lips hydrated

Apply your lipstick well and you shouldn’t need many touch-ups during the day. Try regularly exfoliating your lips and keeping them moisturised – this will help to create a smooth finish

Whether you’re using a lip brush or applying straight from the stick, “apply an even layer over the entire lip, starting at one corner of the mouth, and keeping within the natural lines of the lips.” Bobbi Brown

“Always apply the colour to the corners on both top and bottom lips. Then fill in the bottom lip and any missed areas before pressing your lips together to evenly distribute the colour.” Bobbi Brown

Blot your lips on a piece of tissue to soak up excess product and help to set the stain

Makeup Tips for Blue, Green and Brown Eyes

Engaging YOUR Eyes

Get the most out of your Eye Makeup and check out the tips below for your weekend Eye Makeup look… if you need a recap on the importance of Colour then check it out here

Makeup tips for Blue Eyes

A little re-cap on the importance of the colour wheel when it comes to picking colour for your eye makeup – remind yourself by checking out the link http://www.makeuplikeapro.info/?s=Colour+wheel&submit=Search

For Blue eyes … they really pop when played up with black or chocolate brown liner and thick black mascara, thanks to the dark/light contrast. Rich shimmery eye shadows have the same effect. Shimmery taupe eye shadow has a light-reflecting finish that opens up the eyes and the complementary brown undertones make the blue pop — from dark brown to taupe and champagne

And of course, with blue, you can always turn to cool shades of grays and blues, like Yves Saint Laurent Ombres Duolumieres Eye Shadow Duo in 5 Blue Legend – Grey Illusion. The mini palette includes shadow and liner brushes for an abundance of application options

However, be careful with very light, almost gray, eyes. Dark shades can easily overwhelm and minimize light eye colors. A soft grey, or silver won’t overshadow your eyes’ natural beauty

Makeup for Brown Eyes

Brown eyes are neutral, so you can wear pretty much any color. But to really make them pop, go for a contrast. Pale champagne shadow makes dark brown eyes stand out. Line the inside of your lower lash line with a cream pencil, like Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner in 102 Béryl to enhance the effect. Love the soft tip and convenient sharpener on the other end

For a more dramatic look, create a charcoal grey smoky eye using Illamasqua Powder Eye Shadow in Incubus. The dark grey shadow enhances any darker specks in brown eyes, making them look richer and deeper. This shadow has a matte finish so color doesn’t crease on lids

Any bold hue, such as mint or a bright purple like Benefit Velvet Eyeshadow in Fancy Pancy also offers sharp contrast to browns

Makeup tips for Green Eyes

Any shade of green — whether it’s mint, hunter or emerald — will make green or hazel eyes pop. Champagne, chocolate brown and olive green are great for a subtle green smoky eye if you add highlights around the brow bone

Since purple and green are opposites on the color wheel, they look extra vibrant when paired together. Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in 83 Illusoire a subtle purple, has a gel texture that allows it to be worn as a shadow or liner

For a subtler contrast, try a sheer lavender shadow, like Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in Lavender
