Get Your Makeup to Look Smoother

SHANY 2012 Edition All In One Harmony Makeup Kit, 25 Ounce

SHANY 2012 Edition All In One Harmony Makeup Kit, 25 Ounce


               Sometimes slapping on makeup seems like more trouble and effort than it is worth. I hear a lot of complaints from women who say that makeup "just doesn't sit right" on their skin or that it feels heavy, or worse, that it looks too obvious that they are wearing it. As the whole point of wearing makeup is to look like you're not wearing any, that is a pretty discouraging statement.

True, getting makeup to look flawless can only be achieved through professional makeovers, heavy airbrushing, and a few photoshop editing sessions. But you can get pretty darn close if you know what you're doing! Here are four steps that anyone can use to get moving the the right direction. Getting your makeup to go on a little smoother isn't just for the pros anymore!

Start with a smooth foundation. Now, I'm not talking about the makeup, here! What I'm talking about is your skin. Achieving smooth skin is half the battle of making your makeup look good. Even if it is expertly applied by a seasoned professional, if your skin is rough, flaky or covered in acne, a team of experts couldn't eliminate the bumps. If you suffer from acne, look in to some remedies that will clear up your acne. There are hundreds of acne solutions on the market and you may have to try a few until you find one that works for you, but Pro-Activ is a good place to start!

Exfoliate, wash, moisturize! These are three crucial steps if you plan on wearing makeup on a regular basis. Use an exfoliant on your face up to three times a week to remove dead skin, oil and dirt buildup from your skin (sounds delicious, I know - that's why we get rid of it!). In addition to this, use a cleanser every day to wash your face. But, perhaps the most important step of all is to moisturize! It will help restore the moisture to your face after you wash it, as washing and exfoliating removes your skins natural oils.

Primers. If you have ever painted over a wall, you know that before you can paint a surface you have to prime it first! Well, your face may not be a wall, but it is a surface that needs some TLC. If you have never heard of a makeup primer, their purpose is the prep your skin for makeup. What does this mean? It helps the makeup blend into your skin to look more smooth and seamless, and will help prevent it from wearing or rubbing off over the course of the day. Several companies make makeup primers and so there is no shortage of products to choose from! Remember, you do not have to go high-end to get a great quality product - check your local drug store and browse some beauty websites to see which ones are in your price range.

Use the right makeup for your skin type. This may seem like a no-brainer: makeup is makeup, right? Wrong. You may have noticed that a lot of foundations will specify for which skin type the formula works best. Take a look in the mirror and evaluate your skin carefully. Is it oily? Do you often get dry, flaky patches? Or are you somewhere in between? Find the makeup formula for you. If your skin is dry, using powder will only extenuate the dry look. If it's oily, look into some shine-control foundation. For normal-combination skin, try a combination formula. There are all sorts of women out there and when I say that there is a product for everything, I mean it! K. F. Lynn.

Current Skincare Saviours

About my current skincare saviours



So for a while I simplified my skincare routine because my skin was really bad. I was taking off my makeup with wipes, cleansing with a Clean&Clear cleanser and just been using my Avène serum and moisturiser, all of which I was using for months and all was fine but my skin was never great, I stopped breaking out as much but I still had breakouts which never really went away.
I knew wipes were bad but I still used them anyway because I couldn't find a cleanser to take off my makeup that I liked that much. And after months of using it, I finally realised that the cleanser that I was using was a foaming one, it's quite funny because I used it for so long & I never realised it to be foaming. I was using wipes and foam on my already dry and sensitive skin, no wonder why it never cleared up.

It was time to change my skincare, which I hate because my skin breaks out easily and I've tried so many skincare products at all different price ranges, I already lost hope.
Anyway, I stumbled upon Caroline Hirons' blog and I instantly fell in love with her posts. I read through most of her cheat sheets and learned so much! She recommends using balm cleansers and I remembered that I used to love using my Bobbi Brown balm cleanser, I have no idea why I never tried a balm cleanser again. I stopped using toner ages ago because I could never find one that didn't break me out or felt like it did anything but I took her word for it and put toner on my shopping list too. She raves about Hydraluron too and it sounded like something I needed so that was also put on the list along with flannels, I never really liked muslin cloths anyway so that wasn't a hard decision.

So I went online and ordered a the Ren No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm and Ren Tonic Moisture Mist then I ventured out the next day to buy 7 flannels and the Hydraluron.
My new skincare challenge began, I started implementing the products one by one into my skincare routine and spent a bit more time in the mornings and evenings on my skin. I also started drinking more water. There have been noticeable changes, my skin is SO MUCH better now, the bumps on my forehead and nose have cleared up. I still have some but I'm guessing that it's because of my diet; I eat way too much sugar. Anyway I have been loving my new skincare routine which I have been using for nearly 3 weeks now and I thought I'd share it with you guys!

The products:

1. Ren No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm 
I absolutely love this, it takes off all of my makeup and I don't need to double cleanse. It smells really good too! I squeeze out a 10p sized blob (in the mornings I use a 5p sized blob) and rub it between my fingers before rubbing it into my dry face. I then run my fingers under the tap then rub them over my face to emulsify the balm.
Ren No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm

Next I use a hot flannel to remove my makeup, I rinse the flannel and repeat this step about three times until my face is clean. Oh and it says you can use this to remove eye makeup but I wouldn't recommend it, I tried it and it stings! I always use a separate cleanser for my eye makeup because I use waterproof mascara and no face cleanser ever manages to take everything off. 

2. Ren Tonic Moisture Mist 
I love that this is a spray and that it can also be used over makeup. I spray it twice over my face after cleansing and pat it into my skin. This smells lovely which is a bonus! It's also lovely if you want to refresh your makeup during the day, the only thing I don't like about this product is the glass bottle. It's so heavy to carry around!


Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Booster with the Purest Hyaluronic Acid - Hydration Serum - 30ml
Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Booster with the Purest Hyaluronic Acid - Hydration Serum - 30ml
This product is amazing, my skin definitely feels more hydrated since using this. I recommend this product to everyone! It's a clear gel and a little goes a long way. 

I've talked about this on my blog before, I love this so I use this on top of the hydraluron serum too, this is my third or fourth bottle now. It feels really refreshing on the skin and it acts as my moisturiser because I haven't been using moisturiser in the mornings all over my face recently.

Eau Thermale Avène Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Serum, 1.01 fl. oz.

I've had this for a while now and I still haven't made up my mind about it, I love it under makeup because makeup applies so nicely on it but I've noticed that if I use it too regularly then it will dry out my skin and I would get little bumps. I just use this in the mornings on my t-zone so that my makeup applies nicely.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo Dual Action Acne Treatment Cream with Benzoyl Peroxide, Oil-Free, 1.35 Fl. Oz.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo Dual Action Acne Treatment Cream with Benzoyl Peroxide, Oil-Free, 1.35 Fl. Oz.

6. Avène Light Hydrating Cream 
I bought this to try when I ran out of my Avène rich compensating cream, I didn't like the SPF version so I thought that I'd try this one. It's okay, nothing amazing, I much prefer my rich compensating cream especially because I find that makeup doesn't sit that well on top of this which is why I don't moisturise in the morning and use the Effaclar Duo on my t-zone instead. Once I get another jar of the rich compensating cream I will swap this over for that. 


The Routine:

Morning - Cleanse w/ 1 using hot flannel > Tone with 2 > Serum 3 > Serum 4 > 5 on T-zone  
Night - Cleanse w/ 1 using hot flannel > Tone with 2 > Serum 3 > Serum 4 > Moisturise with 6


I definitely recommend using hot flannels, a fresh one everyday (recommended by Caroline Hirons). I never ever used to just tissue off, I find that gross and even when I used wipes I would always cleanse again with a cleanser and water. If I was using an oil or milk cleanser I would always wash my face with water under a tap. Hot flannels are amazing - I love seeing my makeup on the flannel so that I know it's coming off properly. I don't know why I didn't think of it earlier seeing as I've used a flannel since I was little to wash my face everyday, just never thought of using it with a cleanser to take off makeup? So now I have 7 white flannels which I rotate around, 1 flannel a day and I have my regular flannel which I use in the shower or whatever. I chuck the white ones in the laundry basket after each use so they go in the washing machine. 


There is also one more product I want to use in my skincare routine and that is an exfoliating toner. I know exfoliating is important but I've never done well with exfoliating, it always breaks out my skin! But the idea of an exfoliating toner sounds good - no beads, no salt, no bits, just liquid! I've been looking for one that doesn't sound too harsh and the Pixi Glow Tonic sounds suitable for my skin so I want to try that too. 
Also I've been drinking more water, I used to only drink a glass a day, some days not even that. But now I've been trying to drink at least 4 glasses and I think that has helped my skin too, I definitely feel better anyway. 

Sorry this is a super long post, but hopefully you've found this interesting or helpful. Feel free to ask me any questions about the products or if you want to know where I bought them from & definitely check out Caroline Hirons' blog if you haven't already. 

Have a lovely day!

Applying Makeup when You Can't See Well

30 Piece Brand New & Sealed Hard Candy' Cosmetics Makeup Excellent Assorted Mixed Lot
Applying makeup is one of the joys of my life. Unless it is a beach day or I feel unusually lazy, I like trying new colors and shades of makeup. I've had perfect vision all my life until I reached 40. At this fabulous age, I began to notice a few changes--one was my changing eyesight. After several botched makeup applications, I swore off eyeshadow vowing to stick with eyeliner and mascara for a "simpler look." That did not work so well either and I missed playing with my favorite eyeshadow brands likeMAC and Mary Kay.
When you can't see well, applying makeup is kind of hit and miss. You may get your eyeshadow on the eyelid and you may get your eyeliner in a perfectly straight line but after you put on your glasses-oh no! As a new hot girl with glasses I learned a few things about applying makeup with poor eyesight. Some of them are no-brainers but they felt like revelation when I first figured them out. Here's to you smart, sassy glass wearing gals! Try these tips for flattering makeup applications that stay in the proverbial lines.

Magnified Me
Yes, wonder of wonders, the magnifying glass has become my best friend. I upgraded my vanity table mirror. Besides the regular mirror that matches my wicker vanity set, I sprung for a large magnification mirror. This freestanding mirror stands easily on the tabletop and even has additional lighting to help me see. Be warned. You'll see everything now, including facial hair and tiny wrinkles.

Bright Light
Natural light is best so if possible, move your makeup nook closer to an outdoor window. When this isn't possible double the wattage on your light bulbs or invest in new lighting. Track lighting and lamps are good for directing light on a specific area.

Better Tools
Someone once said, "To do the best job you need the right tools." This old adage is true for this situation too. When you can't rely on your eyes you have to rely on your tools. Upgrade your makeup tools to get a better application.
Pick a sculptured blush brush that is designed with your cheekbones in mind. For mineral powder foundation, use a flat kabuki brush. Always select mascaras that are easy to handle with fine, full brushes. When seeing is a problem, stick with eyeshadow tools that have short handles for better control.

Kingfansion Makeup Cosmetic Brushes Kabuki Face Blush Brush Powder Foundation Tool

Over Foundation Concealer
With less than perfect eyesight, you'll make plenty of mistakes, even with practice. Keep an over-foundation concealer on your makeup table or in your purse for quick corrections. Unlike the concealer that goes under foundation, this kind blends in smoothly to makeup without changing the foundation color.
Check around the eyes and lips especially for eyeshadow and lipstick faux pas. I recommend using concealer pens to get the most precise accurately placed coverage. I usually give myself a quick once over in my car before I even head out of the driveway. There I get tons of good light and can see problems quickly.
If you love makeup but have some difficulty seeing you don't need to give up your cosmetics. Make some of the suggested changes and give yourself a little more time for application. Wearing glasses is not the end of the world. In fact, I love the way my glasses make me look. “Especially after I put them on!”, also said Monica Bullock.

I Do NOT Like My Engagement Ring!

1.6 Carat Designer Four Prong Round Diamond Engagement Ring with a 0.75 Carat I-J VS1-VS2 Center

1.6 Carat Designer Four Prong Round Diamond Engagement Ring with a 0.75 Carat I-J VS1-VS2 Center

If you ask just about any female above the age of 13 what kind of wedding ring she likes, she will most likely give you some spill about metal colors or size or cut or shape. It is something we think about, it's in our blood! And when you dream about that ring for years (and years) it could be extremely devastating to get something that is completely different that you hate. I know that all the guys reading this are probably thinking how ungrateful that sounds and that it is not about the engagement ring, it is about the meaning behind it and what it symbolizes. True. But regardless of how stupid you think it may be, you want her to love her ring as much as she loves you. She is after all going to wear it everyday for the rest of her life, right?! So, with that in mind....guys, try not the be offended and sensitive about changing the ring, you want her to be happy.

If you are a female finding yourself in this situation, my best advise to you is to simply be honest with your man. Tell him you love him and you want to be his wife, but that you have a certain kind of wedding ring in mind and ask if he would mind an exchange. If you fear he might be angry or upset then make a comment about someone you know exchanging their engagement ring to see what he says and how he reacts. Upset or not, it comes down to you wearing a ring you hate, learning to love it anyways, or sticking your neck out there in an effort to be happy with what you get. I suppose it is all a matter of what you can live with.

So, I would say if the two of you feel ok with the exchange then go for it. If you are truly concerned, then ask someone you look up to (a parental figure) or your minister. They will be able to tell you how your family or your religion might feel about it.

They will definitely want all the original paperwork, receipt, etc and could possibly have a very short period of time allowed for exchanges after the initial purchase. If your wedding ring has been engraved, customized in some way or if it was a closeout or discontinued design then you may be out of luck. Your best bet is to simply take the engagement ring back to the same store where it was purchased along with all the paperwork and ask them what your options are as soon as possible.

If a return is impossible for some reason, there are still options. You could consider having the ring reset or restyled into something you do like or try selling it and use the money to buy another one. All that really matters in the end is that you and he are happy together and that both of you can live with your decision.....and the wedding ring!

How to Remove Makeup and Blemishes in Photographs

If your photographs are looking less than the best, use a photo editing software to jazz them up.
CLAWA Ultrasonic Cleansing Face Massager Anti Aging Brush, Blemish Tool Exfoliator Makeup Treatment for Polish, Scrub, Microdermabrasion, Acids and Peels Reduce Acne Portable Facial Skin Care Set Pink CLAWA Ultrasonic Cleansing Face Massager Anti Aging Brush, Blemish Tool Exfoliator Makeup Treatment for Polish, Scrub, Microdermabrasion, Acids and Peels Reduce Acne Portable Facial Skin Care Set Pink


  1. Press Command-A (PC: Ctrl-A) to select the entire image. Click the Edit menu and choose De ne Pattern. Click OK to accept the lename as the name of the pattern. Look at the texture in the shadow area of her cheek; it still doesn't look as soft as it should. With that in mind, press Command-Option-Z (PC: Ctrl-Alt-Z) twice to undo the Dust & Scratches filter.
  2. Now we'll create a pattern for the shadow area. 
    • Once again, open the Dust & Scratches lter. 
    • This time click the lter's cursor box to the left of her nose.
    • Start with a higher pixel radius (we used 10). Slowly lower the Threshold number until this area of skin in the shadow smoothes out, around 14. Ignore the e ect on any pixels in the highlights. Click OK.

3. Once again, select the entire image by pressing Command-A (PC: Ctrl-A), then choose Edit>De ne Pattern. It's ne to let this pattern have the same name as the rst. Remember that the rst pattern is for the lighter areas of skin while the second one is used in the shadows. Finally, press Command-Option-Z (PC: Ctrl-Alt-Z) to undo Dust & Scratches.

4. Choose the Healing Brush tool from the Toolbox. Change the Source in the Options Bar from Sampled to Pattern. From the Pattern menu, click the rst thumbnail of Catherine to select the one for smoothing the texture in the lighter portions of her skin.
Click the Aligned checkbox to turn it on.


5. Heal the pattern over her forehead and then work the turquoise eye shadow using a 70-pixel brush; use the Right Bracket key (]) to increase brush diameter as needed. Brush over the triangle of highlight on her right cheek. Heal over any objectionable texture on her left cheek, nose, and forehead.
6. Choose the second pattern from the menu and work the shadow areas of her right cheek on both sides of the strands of hair. Use a smaller, 20-pixel brush, being careful to leave a bu er area of untouched texture next to her hair; use the Left Bracket key ([) to decrease brush diameter as needed. If the Healing Brush gets too close to the hair, the e ect will bleed into the hair resulting in a very unnatural look. Work on the shadow side of her nose as well.



7. Click the Eye icon on the Smoother Skin layer to check the progress of the effect. Thanks to April Santos for these great informations!
