High End Cosmetics

Where can I find high end cosmetics?

If you are planning to own one of the most paid and upscale cosmetic products that is worth buying a buck? You have to do some serious researches online. Look for online sellers that offer wholesale. With that, you can have the upmarket product that you want in a low price. But, it is not as easy as you think. This top quality and sophisticated makeup are only sold to distributors- appointed distributors. The manufacturers of these products won’t sell or distribute cosmetics to small businesses. Often times, they don’t need advertisements or promotions of their products because they no longer need it since the demand is above high.

How will I know if it is authentic?

If you found a store that sells and offers high end makeup at a cheaper price, you have to be wary. You may encounter sellers that sell bulk products at a price lower than the expected. In such cases, the products might be fake, damaged and already expired. Just an advice; if you’re thinking to buy bulk orders and make the products as a gift or want to sell it, make sure that the seller uses traceable payment method. Don’t go for cash transfer. Also, don’t order large quantities right away, start with small orders so the risk will be minimized. A seller that shows pictures of products, states that product condition and previous payments or transactions made by customers then it is expected that the seller is genuine. Genuine sellers should also have their contact number posted for easy negotiation.

High end cosmetic products worth splurging on

Dior skin airflash spray foundation- this product is a bit pricey, so use it only during occasion.

Dior skin forever compact powder-  I love how this compact powder can be used in two ways. It can work as a pressed powder and at the same time a bronzer which makes it convenient since I don’t have to carry two different make up in my bag and it comes in compact form. If you want to use it as a bronzer, choose the darker shade.

If you want this, you can find it on online stores such as eBay, Sephora and Amazon.

Eyeshadow Tips on How to Wear it like a Pro

If you want your eyes to stand out, you need to have great skills when you do your eyeshade makeup. It’s a little bit frustrating when our eye makeup doesn’t turn out the way we want it to be. We’ve got some helpful tips here below that can help you improve your eye makeup skills.

Do’s and don’ts when wearing eye shadow

First thing you have to consider is the color you will be picking. It doesn’t have to be the same with your eye color. What is important is that whatever color you choose, it has to match your eye color and will look great on you. For example, if you green eyes, try using shades of purple and see which shade looks perfect on you. Another, if you have brown eyes, since brown is neutral, any color should look best on you. Another thing, when choosing colors, it has to coordinate with what you wear. Common mistake of women is that they use same color of shadow with that they wear. Never ever do those, you’ll end up looking like a clown. Also, it has to fit the occasion that you’re attending to. Don’t wear too much makeup during business meeting, and wear little to no make on your first date.

Wearing eyeshadow

Choose three colors of your choice. Categorize them into three, light, medium and dark. Light colors are the first to be applied. It has to cover entire eyelid going to your brow bone. Next, wear the medium shade, apply it on the crease. Start from the outer corner of the eye going inside. Remember to blend it well with the first color. Don’t put too much color in the inside corner of the eyes, it will look gaudy and loud. Then the last to be applied is the dark shade. Apply it on the upper lash line and on the lower lash line. It needs a little practice to master this step and leaking of eyeshadow is just normal part of the process. All you need to do is to conceal it by applying medium shade of eyeshadow.

Tips for keeps

Always start your eyeshadow makeup with a base or eye primer. Though you may skip this, it is best not to because it helps the eye shadow to wear and last longer throughout the day. If fine lines are already visible, stay away from shimmery eyeshades, it will just make fine lines more visible.

Choosing Eye Makeup

Beautiful eyes bring out the beauty of a woman. When you do makeup, the first thing that we notice is the eyes. It always catches everyone’s attention, especially if it is well defined. Doing eye makeup is the most important when you do makeup. The reason why it’s important because even if you have the perfect lips, eyebrows and nose Bridge, if you’re eye makeup is bad then the rest follows.

Makeup tips

First thing, consider the event that you’re attending to. You don’t want to go on your first date with all the eyeshadows on your eyes. It can be sometimes hard to pick and choose which color and look are you going to wear. Here’s a tip, try copying one of the celebrity’s look but make sure that your skin color is the same with them so there is a great that it will compliment and look good on you. Common mistake among beginners is that they try to make each facial feature a focal point which is not correct. Choose only one area, whether your lips, eyes or nose. We all want our eyes to stand out, right? If you have a beautiful and glowing skin, especially the young ones, you may skip foundation, instead, use a concealer to hide blemishes. Less makeup makes your eyes stand out just the way you want. Another tip: if you already got beautiful eyes, don’t overdo or don’t do much on them. Just work on your lips, wear your favorite shade of lipstick and, voila. You already look great. Less makeup is better.

How to do eye makeup

Follow the simple step we have below. You can use whether you’re trying to create a natural or dramatic look in your eyes. It’s better to start with a clean face. Wash your face with clean soap and rinse with water. Dry it using a clean fluffy towel. If it happens that you still have makeup residues, remove it using makeup remover or a cotton swab with lotion. If you’re using moisturizer, don’t apply on your eye lids, it will make your skin greasy and when you try to put makeup, it will just wear off. Putting primer ass your base helps makeup to last longer, but that’s just optional. You may skip if you wish to. If you have those dark circles under your eyes, use a concealer to hide them. Dab small amount on the area you want to cover and blend it using your fingers. When buying concealer, swipe it on your wrist, the one that hides the veins best is the best concealer. Now you can start applying eyeshadow. Pick three colors, light, medium and dark shade. Be sure that the colors you pick complement each other. The shade that you’re going to apply first is the medium shade. Apply it on entire eyelids. Light brown or medium pink is the preferred color. The light color must be applied on your brow bone. When you do this, you can also use light gold shade to give you a more bouncy and light look. Use good quality brush when you apply it. The darker shade of eye shadow is applied on your crease. Start from outer corner of eyes then moving into the inner corner of eyes. Violet and brown compliments the two shades mentioned above. Blend the colors well. The more you blend the more natural it will look. After working with the eyeshades, let’s proceed with eyeliner. You may use liner pencil, liquid eyeliner and even your eyeshadow palette. Start on your upper lash line using small, tiny controlled strokes, then on your lower lids too. To finish your look, apply mascara. When you apply mascara on upper lash, hold the wand horizontally, start from roots to tips in a zigzag motion. For the lower lash, position the wand vertically and move it up and down. If you already got those natural curled lashes, no need to curl it. But if you wish to you may still do it. But remember, curl lashes first before applying mascara, or else you’ll have smudge mascara all over your curler.

It should be done in a sterile area, with sterile instruments, and most important, a licensed and experienced anesthesiologist.

It looks more natural. You can also have your lips tattooed if you want it to make as one of your features. How nice it is to drink in a wine glass without staining it?

The color may be dark for few days but lightens and fades after time. Supportive measures for swelling is cold compress and take some antibiotics to minimize infection.
