Illamasqua Art of Darkness inspired makeup

 Illamasqua Art of Darkness inspired makeup
       After toying with notions of light and movement with its Spring/Summer 2010 collection, Illamasqua`s Creative Director Alex Box has now gone in the opposite direction, crafting a fall/winter collection that's rife with a sinister sense of seduction. The Art of Darkness collection, then, explores the idea of the forbidden, taboo, and eerie, inspired by a mythical, underworld-like universe where animalistic, passion-driven Dionysian practices reign supreme.
      With my makeup what I was to express it is strong person, with selfcontrol and a lot of domination. Maybe looks to much dramatic, but at the same time very seductive... what in my opinion Illamasqua try to espress with their colletion.

Nordic mythology inspired makeup

  Nordic mythology inspired makeup
 Normally the term Norse myths is used, or more misleading Viking myths, but which does not apply to mythological traditions that extend back into a time before the Norse arose.  However, what became Norse mythology would have extended back in recognizable form through to the beginning of the Iron Age, and with certain elements extending back even to the Neolithic and beyond.
    So my makeup it is inpsired on the nordic mythology and  trying to to capture the Iron Age  adding to my look a metal efect, using gold eyeshadows. On my front head I try  to create a metal head piece, how we allways cand see on almost all the pictures of nordic mythology. The look it is very easy to makeup, you only need pacient to do it, because you need to add  a lot of details.
     Here you can see some pics of the look.

My favorite foundation brush for summer

viernes, 24 de septiembre de 2010

Of course my favorite foundation brush is the Sigma ss197 (F80), but I found the new one the works perfect for summer. Here it is the Sigma Hollywood rectractable kabuki brush. Mine it is Something about Marilyn, but you can find it in others colors, to.

I dont know why, but I never liked the kabuki brushes, but this one it is amazing. 
Since I found the Sigma F80, it was my favorite one and still it is, but on the last summer, when my foundation brush it was dirty, I thought to give it a try to Kabuki one. Well I was amazed by this one. Why I am say that is wonderful for Summer ? it is because you can apply a sheer coat, but at the same time it´s give me a full cover. Also the Sigma Makeup retractable kabuki is the easiest way to apply powder products such as blush, bronzer, foundation, and highlighter on-the-go. It is a practical brush.
You can find this Glamour rectractable kabuki brush on the Sigma Beauty website, and belive me that worth the money.

Top 10 Makeup Mistakes

Top 10 Makeup Mistakes

Most women experiment with makeup beginning in their adolescence, which means they should have plenty of time to figure out which products and techniques work best for their face. However, some women never learn, and perhaps you are one of these makeup offenders. Find out now if the foundation of your cosmetics knowledge is well-blended :):)
The sexiest makeup is the application no one notices. Women apply cosmetics to look better, to enhance their beauty – not detract from it.
Is clumpy mascara, caked foundation or sloppy lip liner keeping you from looking your best? Read on for the top 10 makeup mistakes and how to avoid them…

Makeup Mistake #1: 
Dark lip liner and light lipstick
Along with spandex and big hair, this is one look that should have stayed in the ’80s. The trend now is lip liner in a shade close to your natural lip color, she says. Line and color in your pucker, then top with sheer gloss. If you do use dark liner, like a red or berry shade, fill in your mouth completely, and then top with clear gloss, not a light lipstick.Makeup

 Makeup Mistake #2:
 Lip liner that extends beyond the lip line
What you learned in kindergarten still holds true: Coloring outside the lines is sloppy. To fake a bigger pout, hug your lip line with the pencil. Line just the border, but not beyond. Then color in your lips and apply a lip-plumping product. Finish with a dab of clear or light gloss on the center of your lower lip; it will reflect the light and make your lips appear fuller.

Makeup Mistake #3: 
Drawn-in eyebrows
Women with lush, full brows should skip any added color; all they need are tweezers for stray hairs and a bit of brow gel. To plump up sparse brows, dip an angled brush into brow powder, how says Ashunta Sheriff, a makeup artist for Christian Dior. Move the brush along the natural line of the brow, extending it to the edge of the eye.
If your brows are super-thin, Sheriff recommends making short, feathery strokes with a pencil, then topping brows with powder

Makeup Mistake #4:
 Eyeliner drawn way past the outer corner of the top eyelid
The “cat-eye” (or Cleopatra) effect is sultry and sexy, but not if you go overboard. Use a pencil if you’re a beginner; liquid liner is more glamorous but requires skill and a steady hand.
For a perfect eye, draw a line along the root of the lashes from the inner to outer corner. At the outer edge, subtly slant the line upward. Extend the line no farther than a quarter inch past your eye (or just a tad bit farther for a more dramatic look). Use your eyebrow as a guide: Don’t take the line past its edge.

Makeup Mistake #5:
 Clumpy Mascara
Before you apply, wipe the mascara wand against the opening of the tube to get rid of any excess mascara. When applying,  That wiggling the wand from side to side, from the base of your lashes to the tips, is the way to avoid clumps.
Before the mascara dries, comb through your lashes with an old toothbrush or an eyelash comb to separate them and get rid of the gunk. If you want, apply a second coat, then comb through again

Makeup Mistake #6: 
Obvious line of blush
Toss out the dinky brush that came in the compact. A bigger brush will distribute the color more evenly.
After you dip the brush into the blush, knock it gently on the back of your hand to get rid of excess powder.
Smile and apply the blush in short, upward strokes on the apples of your cheeks, blending up to the hairline and ear. It will give you a flushed, natural glow. If you apply too much, tone down the color with a light dusting of translucent powder.
Finding your best blush color may require some experimentation… or a visit to a makeup counter. But as a rule of thumb, bright colors are a definite don’t. When in doubt, stick with a pinky/peach hue with a soft shimmer.

Makeup Mistake #7: 
Bright blue mascara
Teal or cerulean mascara is young, punkish and more suited for rebellious teens. Indigo and navy, on the other hand, are polished and chic for 20-somethings and beyond.
Dark blue mascara can brighten up the whites of your eyes, which is especially useful when you’re tired or your eyes are bloodshot. It’s pretty on all eye colors and flattering to everyone.
If blue still seems too outrageous, you can go for a more subtle look by applying regular black mascara and just tipping the edges of your lashes with blue.

Makeup Mistake #8: 
Caking on foundation over bad skin
Suffocating your skin with a heavy cover-up will only draw attention to the problem you’re trying to hide. Instead, try these tricks:
For fine lines: Mix in a little moisturizer with your foundation, which will prevent the formula from seeping into the lines.
For blemishes: “Mineral makeup can give great coverage for pockmarks and acne,”
Also is recomended a gel foundations, such as those offered by cosmetic company Chantecaille: “It’s expensive, but it works. It looks like real skin.”

Makeup Mistake #9:
 Foundation line on jaw
To avoid a telltale foundation mask, the first step is to select the right shade.  Ask a salesperson at the makeup counter to pick out several shades and then test a few on your cheek. Step outside into natural light and use a hand mirror to see which shade looks best on you, belive me it is the best, foundation look different outside.
 Our necks are often a different color than our faces and chests, so it’s important to blend foundation down into the neck for a uniform color. Use a makeup sponge to create a seamless edge.

Makeup Mistake #10: 
Lining eyes only halfway
A strong, hard line all the way around your eye can make your peepers look smaller and closer together, but lining them only halfway looks silly. The solution? A softer line can make your eyes look bigger.

Start lining your top and bottom lids at the inner edge of the iris and extend the liner to the outer corner of your eye. Then, gently smudge the line toward the inner corner of your eye to create a softer look.

Brush cleansers

Brush cleansers
The brush cleansers are made to clean (for daily cleaning), desinfect and condition the brush fibers so that brushes will last longer. It is convenient to use and is and is specifically designed to extended the life of high quality brushes. Cleanser leaves your brushes smelling fresh, clean and helps shorten their drying time.

Makeup forever cleanser:
This brush cleanser, yes it´s leave my brushes clean..My brushes it´s not dry so fast, but leave my brushes soft. Makeup forever has an alcohol smell. Love the packaging, has spray cap.
Price: 11€ for 210ml.

Mac brush cleansers    
I absolutely love this brush cleanser, it´s leave my brush clean and soft. After cleaning, my brushes dry very fast, so I can use it right away if need it. Doesn´t leave any strong smell and clean my brushes very well. The only downfall is the packaging, that is a pop up cap, but this is not sush a problem, because my spray cap of my Makeup forever, it´s feets very well.
Price: 11€ for 235ml
Mac vs. Makeup forever cleanser:
One difference that makes me opt for that of MAC is the odor, of MUFE (MAKE UP FOR EVER) has a very strong odor of alcohol, whereas the MAC does not. But the second difference is perhaps the most important MUFE with that I had to use more of product to make my brushes clean, MAC counter that with a droplet warehouses in a tissue is the result ,..... so spectacular ....
