Permanent Makeup: The Freedom of Permanent Cosmetics

You will love waking up each day with the color in your lips, on your eyes, and your eyebrows perfectly in place. No smudging, smearing, or washing off after showering or swiming. No wearing off at the end of a long day. Imagine the time you will save in front of the mirror in applications and touch-ups.
 Permanent cosmetic procedures should be performed by a master certified cosmetic artist for best results.
This is a state of the art method of appling natural pigment to the dermal layer of the skin. This technique was medically developed and specifically designed for the complete safety of various procedures such as eye brows, eyeliner, lip liner, lip color, scar camouflage, areola restoration, vitiligo, freckles and stretch marks.

Permanent cosmetics can be applied to look natural for the enhancemnet of your own personal features. This allows you the freedom to achieve a more dramatic look with the application of regular makeup as your mood dictates.
This new technology of makeup will impress those of us who are so busy, as well as the client with oily skin, who's makeup had faded or rubbed off by the end of the day. Anyone allergic to the use of regular makeup will find this procedure extremely beneficial.
Both men and women will look their best at all times, no matter how busy their lifestyles have become. Prices range from $400 and up per procedure. Many upscale Spas, including Jon Tomas Salon & Spa in St. Louis,MO, have a permanent cosmetic artist on staff.

Makeup Review: E.L.F.'s Eyeshadow Duo

e.l.f Day To Night Smoky 4 Piece Eye Set! Includes 3 Eye-Shadow Duos And 1 Eye-Shadow Brush!

Ordering makeup online is risky. You don't know how the product feels on your skin, if you like the quality, and so much more. There are questions that you want answered before you throw money into a product. I try to answer your questions about makeup products before you purchase. I have personally purchased and tested each product I review to optimize your overall opinion.

Right now we are going to take a peek at e.l.f.'s eyeshadow duo. This is a product recently developed by e.l.f. During this review we are going to take a look at the colors, texture, and application life.

I had purchased e.l.f.'s eyeshadow duo creams a couple months back and got each color. When I was buying these eyeshadow duo's I noticed the colors were identical to e.l.f.'s duo creams. There's a total of six duo's available for purchase right now: Butter pecan, olive, mocha swirl, blueberry, berry mix, and black licorice.
I was very pleased with the colors because they were highly pigmented. Unlike most other e.l.f. eyeshadow products, these shadows were actually rather matte. There was a little shimmer to each color, but not a lot. The eyeshadow duo's were actually a breath of fresh air.

Texture is a very big part of an eyeshadow to me and it should be to you as well. Skin around the eye is very sensitive and can easily be damaged by the slightest pulling, poking, and prodding. You want to ensure the makeup you apply to the eye area is very gentle and mild.
E.l.f.'s shadow duo is a friendly bunch to the eye. The texture is very soft and subtle. I like to test shadow products on my ring finger before my eye, and, needless to say, I was very happy with the results on both my finger and eyelid.
This shadow did not crease and it did not flake. It is very easy to work with in the blending area. Since each shadow comes partnered with another shadow of the like, you can easily form a new look each day.

Application life:
I was very impressed with the application life of these shadows. Most shadows I purchase online turn out to be very cheap and an overall waste of money. Not with these.
I judged this shadow in three different ways: with concealer, with primer, and on bare skin. Each of these application processes are used on a daily basis.
·        On bare skin - I got approx. four hours of full application life from this duo. There was a little fading on the lighter shadows during this time, but not too much.
·        On concealer - I applied a concealer before application and it only caused creasing, so I would not recommend doing that.
·        On primer - I put the primer on before the shadow and got a lot better results. I got approx. five hours of full wear.

All-in-all, it's a good shadow for the price and I would recommend adding it to your makeup collection.

How to Pull Off the No Makeup Look Successfully

Ever wanted to try to walk out in public without wearing any makeup and not feel embarrassed or even almost naked at the same time? Don't be shy anymore, here are a few tips to get you started in the right direction of letting your face be "au naturale".

First of all make sure your face is cleansed thoroughly. Any dirty residue can make your facial skin appear dull or blotchy. I would recommend using the facial bar soap by Clinique that fits your skin type to make sure your skin is squeaky clean without drying it out. Afterwards follow up with a toner and moisturizer (I would also recommend using ones by Clinique as well). If you have fairer skin or are going to be outside for a longer period of time, make sure you use a moisturizer that has a good amount of SPF for protection against the sun's damaging effects, especially on your bare skin.

Do you have dark circles on your eyes or have puffy eyes? Soothe them with a de-puff eye gel such as the all natural Yes To Cucumbers brand. It goes on clear and leaves no trace of residue behind and does an excellent job of calming down the eye area. Make sure you get enough sleep the night before to prevent this from happening in the first place.

            Make sure everything is neat about your face, especially your eyebrows. Keep your eyebrows tame with a tweezer, but try to do this the night before to avoid red, irritated skin on your upper eye area.

            You hair plays a major part in giving you that fresh look. Make sure hair is not messy and all over the place or else it will contribute to a disarrayed, "I don't really care about my looks" appearance. A simple neat ponytail or your hair combed neatly will simply do the trick.

            Do you have acne prone skin and simply cannot risk walking out showing off your blemishes for the whole wide world to see? Invest in a concealer specially formulated with salicylic acid that matches the exact skin tone of your skin and lightly dab it on to your blemishes, but don't over do it or else it will be obvious that you something foreign on your face. You can follow up with a tinted SPF moisturizer to make sure your skin tone looks even. Do you have sparse eyelashes and don't want to appear tired? Brighten them by using clear mascara on your lashes to still achieve the natural look.

Makeup Additives - Do You Know What You're Putting on Your Face?

In today's society many women apply makeup every morning before they leave the house but how many people really know what they're putting on their face?

Do you know what each additive does in your cosmetics? These are six additives found in makeup that you may not know their purpose: benzethonium chloride, candelilla wax, cetyl alcohol, para aminobenzoic acid, propylene glycol, and triethanolamine.

When you buy makeup you should always check the label to make sure that there is some sort of preserving agent that will prevent germs from growing. One of the most common preservatives and antiseptic compounds found in makeup is benzethonium chloride.

Candelilla wax is found in lipstick and lip balms and is what allows them to harden. Candelilla wax is derived from the leaves and stems of the candelilla shrub found in the southwestern states and northern Mexico.

The majority of additives that are used in makeup are found in foundation. Cetyl alcohol is an emollient, meaning it is used in makeup to soften and smooth the skin to which it is applied. This is used in foundations to create a soft look on the face.

Para aminobenzoic acid which is sometimes abbreviated to PABA used to be commonly found in foundations that offer sunscreen protection from UV rays. But according to the National Institute of Health: National Library of Medicine (2007), this compound isn't commonly used anymore since it has been found to increase the risk of skin cancer in certain people whose bodies are not able to repair cellular defects caused by this acid.

Another additive found in many foundations is propylene glycol which helps prevent your skin from drying out when applying makeup by retaining it's own moisture. This organic compound is also commonly used in body and facial moisturizers, not just makeup.

Triethanolamine stearate is an emulsifying agent used in foundations and other cosmetics to combine oil and water for a smooth appearance. This organic chemical compound can also be used as a pH balancer and is found in other beauty products, besides makeup, it is found in lotions, shaving foam, and shampoos.

These six additives are only some of those which you will find in the makeup you put on your face everyday and now you can feel a little more confident about what you're using. If your makeup has other additives in the ingredients, don't worry, cosmetic manufacturers use different products but FDA regulations prohibit the use of additives which may be dangerous in US produced makeup.
