How to Beautify your eyes

Don’t we all wonder how to make our eyes look attractive and sexy.  Sometime to impress our boy friend, husband or just to look good during an event or just to look pretty for no particular reason (but for ourselves).  

There are various ways to do it and most of all you have to practice and find the right technique that suits your needs. This is only a list of things from where you can pick a few tricks and use ‘em.

1.

Always curl your lashes before wearing mascara

2.

Use a light colored shadow near the inner corner of your eye

3.

Use a flesh colored liner in the water line to give the your eyes the appearance of looking big. 

The flash colored liner looks more natural on medium-dark skins and white liner works pretty well for fair skin.

4.

Define your eye-brows well.  Keeping your eye-brows properly defined and in shape opens up the whole eye area and makes the eyes really pop.

5.

Cover up the dark circles around the eyes well using concealer.

Asian skins : use ‘yellow color’ based concealer

Caucasian skins or someone who has cool under-tone : use ‘pink or salmon color’ based

6.

Only lightly dust the loose powder on. Avoid too much powder in this area, otherwise you end up looking cakey.

7.

Use concealer on both top and bottom of the eyes. As Asian (medium to darker) skin tones tend to have heavier dark circles on the eye lids as well.

8.

On special occasions or whenever you prefer you can wear false lashes.  They make the eyes look really exotic and gorgeous (especially the individual lashes). The strip lashes are easier to apply and where the individual lashes need more practice.

9.

And, most important always smile and be happy that makes our eyes more beautiful then any make-up techniques on earth would.

How to wear red lips right?????

I am absolutely in love with those electrifying, strong red and magenta lips.  The best part of it is that it picks up your whole face when you don’t have time for too much makeup.  You can get away looking totally trendy in such little time. 

Not having enough time for makeup is a common problem with people in Hong Kong.  But, I’ve also seen that people in Hong Kong are more comfortable wearing lip-glosses then lip-sticks.  This is the season to be little daring, try it out galz.

This is a very classy and easy to create look. One of the basics I guess, red lips with mascara and sweep some blush over the cheekbones and you are done.  But, many of us still wonder on how to wear the red lips right. Here is the trick, try and see what works for you

Avoid :

Outlining your lips when wearing darker lip- shades.  Instead, follow your natural lip line.

DO’s

Use a lip brush instead a lip pencil.  The outcome would be much natural and wearable looking lips.

Minimal eye makeup.  Just wear mascara or if you want just apply some black eyeliner on the top lashes only.  And, don’t miss the blush…it will just pull the whole look together.

Create a flawless base.

And Conceal on the sides of the lips as well for that extra sexy looking mouth.

Use a gloss over the lip-stick for that extra shine (if you like).

Or, for those who still don’t feel they have the guts to wear the Red or Magenta lip-stick as yet.  Go try a sheer lip-stick or lip-gloss in darker color then ususal.
