Late to Class Make-Up 101: Easy Everyday Make-Up
March 06, 2017
Back to school means "back to being busy" for many of us. Parents, students, teachers and co-workers all know that when Fall comes in, our free time seems to fly out the window. When your beauty routine is running under a seriously crunched schedule, try this super easy and super quick everyday make-up routine to look great in 5 minutes or less!
- Start with a pigment matching tinted moisturizer. A moisturizer and translucent foundation all in one, tinted moisturizer covers imperfections without a need for concealer, and looks totally natural, giving your skin the perfect everyday glow. Apply like moisturizer- no applicators or sponges needed!
- Follow with a bronzing powder for just a little bit of natural color on your cheeks. Simply brush on your cheek bones for just a touch of color on your way out the door.
- Apply mascara. Don't skip the mascara! Any on the go lady will tell you that nothing makes a woman look more polished than wearing a little bit of eye makeup. Blinc's tube-style mascara applies easily- in one coat!- and won't smudge or budge all day long, but washes off easily at night or in the shower. It simply slides off your lashes- just like tubes! Apply more heavily at the base, and alleviate the need for an eyeliner. Quick as can be!
- Slap on some moisturizing lip balm. Especially for everyday sorts of things, the natural color of your lips is perfect. Enhancing it with a little moisture in the morning sets off the natural color of your lips flawlessly.
How-tology: Fixing Make-Up Misshaps
June 24, 2016
The road to achieving that crisp cat-eye or that perfectly bold lip is not always pretty. We're human, mistakes happen and sometimes your need a redo. We have got you covered with these four easy tips to recovering makeup mishaps in a pinch!
A splotch of mascara falls off the wand onto your newly made-up face.
Dab the end of a Q-tip into some foundation. Making sure not to drag the skin, pat the tip onto the stain with a light, twisting motion. Repeat if necessary, using the other end. Dust over the area with translucent powder.
You've sneezed before your mascara is dry! Now you look like a raccoon.Follow the same procedure as above but this time you'll need to re-apply your eye shadow over the newly applied foundation. Be careful not to apply too much or else it will 'cake'.
Smudged lip liner/lipstick.
If the smudge is really obvious, you'll need to use a cleanser or makeup remover to erase the damage. For precision, use a Q-tip rather than a cotton ball - and above all avoid rubbing! Re-apply foundation to the area in question, dust with powder, then re-apply lipstick.
Your eye shadow has become all creased and caked.Remove the thick lines of shadow with a Q-tip. Dust eyelid with translucent powder before re-applying your shadow. To avoid this in future, apply small dots of foundation on the entire eye area and dust with translucent powder before applying eye color. Lids tend to cake and crease when the skin is too moist or oily.
