The Eyeliner…

I never really moved with a certain makeup trend automatically, it usually takes me sometime to feel a trend and most of the time I don’t follow it.

But this one, the eyeliner trend. I love it, I am so into it I think it’s because I used to love wearing eyeliner in many ways as a teenager growing up. The eyeliner trend however, is not for everyone. It is a bold look of an incomplete wing, graphic or a crazy eyeliner look that defines the eyes.

Personally I feel makeup brings out my features, and in that sense I apply makeup in a way that really shows off my character. Experimenting with the different eyeliner trend is actually a way for me to express myself and what mood I am in. I love it.

Here are the top eyeliner trends:

1- Colored Eyeliner: I would go for a one color eyeliner or mix it with a little bit of black. The most subtle colors are purple, blue and emerald green or even gold it also matches with any of your outfits. You can apply it as a wing liner, or under eye the with a pencil to smudge it out.

2- Negative Space Eyeliner: It’s just the regular wing liner, just minus filling in the wing, so leave the inside of the wing unfilled.

3- Incomplete Wing: Start with a regular winged liner and the extend the line on top of your crease tracing it in a V Shape. Do not extend to more than 1/3rd the length of your eyelid. The easiest liquid liner that provides the easiest application is by Grandiose Liner by Lancome, (bendable eyeliner).

4- Dark Eyeliner: A classing eyeliner look only you make the line thicker and go for just black eyeliner. Apply the liner on the upper eyelid and lower connecting them in the inner corners of your eye.

Highlighting 101 … Strobe Away

Strobing is a technique that only uses light to enhance your face, no bronzer or dark powders involved here. Basically, you’re taking all of your usual contouring steps, but just ditching the part where you carve out your features and heading straight for the highlighter stick. This approach to makeup is supposed to mimic what it’s like to be under bright, flattering lights using illuminating products.

97f2ec179b34ce318bb28617d7728523Avoid using anything matte in your routine as this will just dull down the strobing-tutorialresults. Use highlighter to enhance where light would naturally hit your face, which for most of us is across the temples, cheekbones, and bridge of your nose. If you’re afraid of looking oily, avoid putting any highlighter on your forehead. If you’re lighter skinned, opt for champagne colors, while darker skin tones will look stunning.

Fuse your skincare and makeup together as much possible for a dewy, wet-shine finish. For example:

1) if you use concealer add moisturizer to it.

2) Add shine to the areas of your face that catch light naturally, like your cheekbones, bridge of the nose, or temples.

Some Illuminating Products:- M.A.C Strobe Cream (Cheat: for the lazy girls out there, it does the strobing for you, by just applying the cream itself). Benefit Cosmetics: Benefit Girl Meets Pearl, also from Benefit: Benefit Girl Meets Pearl. ,  Charlotte Tilbury’s Highlighter Wand and NYX cosmetics Illuminating Stick.
