MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE
NEW BEAUTY TRICKS THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR MAKEUP FOREVER!!!
1)Apply Concealer in a Triangle Shape
Concealing dark circles and bags under your eyes is much easier when you apply concealer properly. Instead of dotting on concealer in the pattern of your eyes, apply it in a triangle shape. Just dot it on under your eyes and blend downward in the triangle shape. It will perfectly cover up those dark circles and bags and give you the look that you want
2)White Eye Shadow Makes Eyes Stand Out
White eye shadow is a great choice if you really want your eyes to stand out. You just have to layer your lid with white eye shadow and then add the colors that you want. The white will also keep those other colors from rubbing off before the end of the day and you can even add white to the top of the lid by the brow to really make your eyes pop
3)Set Lipstick to Last
Lipstick tends to rub off, smudge and otherwise not look as great at the end of the day as it does when you first apply it. You can remedy this problem with a tissue and a bit of translucent powder. After you have applied your chosen lip color, just hold a tissue over your lips lightly and dust just a bit of translucent powder over the tissue. This helps to set the lipstick so that it lasts longer
4)Keep Lipstick Off Teeth
Lipstick on the teeth has plagued women for centuries. Nobody likes to smile and find out that they have red all along their pearly whites. A great way to avoid this is to simply wipe your lips from the inside out. After you finish applying your lipstick, just stick your finger in your mouth and pull it out. Remember making those “popping” noises when you were a kid? This is the same thing. Your finger will wipe away the excess lipstick and leave your teeth shiny white.

IMPORTANT BRIDAL MAKEUP TIPS YOU NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO !!!
Simply say 'I do' to the following bridal make-up rules and prepare to wow.
1. 'Make sure you have your trial at least five weeks, but no more than 3 weeks, before your wedding, have a test run before your make-up trial so that your artist can see what colour your skin becomes with the makeup
2. 'Wear a white t-shirt if you’re having your make-up test in a store so that you can see how the make-up looks against a pale colour and take a picture of yourself in day light (with no flash) to see how it looks before you purchase anything,'
3. 'Emphasize your eyes by brightening any darkness under them with corrector and concealer.
4.' Bring references to your make-up trial. Start looking for images of make-up that you really like and bring them with you on the day. Try to identify what it is you like about the make-up in the image and take into account that if you have the skin colour of Dita Von Teese then the make-up of Kim Kardashian won't necessarily translate onto you.
5. 'Use individual eyelashes – they’re a brilliant way to make your eyes stand out and look far more subtle than a full strip. Go for differing lengths to create a really natural fluttery look and nestle them in between your natural lashes rather than fixing them on top.
Here is hoping these tips helps you.
EFFORTLESS TIPS FOR A FLAWLESS MAKEUP LOOK
Today, foundation is no longer just cosmetic. It protects your face from pollutants and bacteria and gives skin a smooth, even look. Here are a few tricks for a natural, light makeup look:
Use primer: A foundation primer with silica "fills" in lines, smoothing your skin so foundation won't cake up or sink into wrinkles.
Warm it up: Warm your foundation in your palm, giving it a more liquid consistency that goes on smoothly
Other options, in lieu of foundation, include tinted moisturizers, concealers, mineral powder or bronzers; these will even out your skin tone, giving your face that smooth, silky look. Likewise, look for foundations described as "sheer" and "lightweight."
Here are some other ways to get a natural look with makeup.
Blush: The "Seinfeld" character, George, described his ideal blind date as having "a pinkish hue." In reality, most women apply blush too low and often too heavy, looking like Bozo the Clown. For a healthy, natural glow, cream blushes are a great option or try a cheek stain that simply enhances your natural color without the sharp color of traditional blush.
Eyes: Eyes are the windows to your soul, so even when going for a light look, focus on your eyes. A neutral, all-over lid color or a tinted eye primer is easy, looks natural and evens out the eyelid's color. If you don't like mascara, curl your eyelashes to define them. If eyeliner is too heavy for you, omit it, applying extra coats of mascara and really working the brush into the roots of the lashes.
Lips: To avoid Great Aunt Hilda's "old lady red" that always bleeds into her wrinkles, exfoliate your lips by brushing them with a toothbrush. Then, choose a tinted lip balm (with SPF) that gives you moisture and a touch of color, making your lips look younger. Lip stains and light, neutral glosses have the same effect and give you a natural look that Aunt Hilda wouldn't dare wear.

NEW BRIDE ALERT !!!
HOW TO CREATE A LOOK FOR AN EVENING WEDDING
The first thing you need to know about applying makeup for an evening wedding is that you don’t need to be shy or conservative. Dimmer lighting means you can go for a bolder, more dramatic look without detracting from the other beautiful things you’ve invested so much care, time, and money in, like your hair and your gown.
While makeup that sparkles is a no-no for a daytime, outdoor wedding, it is a definite yes-yes for an evening ceremony. You don’t want to go over the top and blind your guests with too much dazzle. But using foundation, blush, or eye shadow that has a little sparkle to it will make you look elegantly chic, especially if there is candlelight involved.
Choosing your lip color is also a great opportunity to be a bit more brazen. For example, if you start with a liner in a darker color, like dark cranberry or wine, you can then fill in the flesh of your lips with a burgundy or cinnamon shade that complements the liner but doesn't overpower it. This will give you a pair of luscious—but about-to-be-married—lips that will make every man at the wedding jealous of your fiancé.
When doing your eye makeup, don’t go too dark, or your beautiful eyes might get lost in the shadows (so to speak). That doesn’t mean, however, that you should shy away from the daring. Try doing a three-tiered eye-shadow look using a medium shade for the base, a darker shade in the crease, and a highlighting tone for the space between your crease and your brow. This will help your eyes stand out without looking overdone. Also, make sure you use waterproof mascara, as you may be shedding a few tears of happiness during the blessed event.
You don’t have to be a professional makeup artist to create evening wedding makeup that highlights your beauty on the most special evening of your life. You just need to take into account the important factors, like the lighting and the type of look you want to present, before you dive in face first.
But If you still don't feel confident enough to try it on your own, we would love to help,you can visit a BMPRO outlet today .
LOOK 10 YEARS YOUNGER (TIPS FROM WOMENS HEALTH MAGAZINE)
So we found some rear tips on looking younger from womenshealthmag.com.
They are pretty simple and affordable for all, have fun reading and enjoy the tips.
Blow It Off
Chewing gum can reduce stress and improve performance. People who chomped during a mild stress test had 16 percent less of the hormone cortisol than those who took the test gum-free. Their attention and memory scores also increased. Chewing boosts blood flow to the jaw and perhaps the brain. Added O2 may boost mental sharpness, and if you're on top of your game you'll feel less stressed, says Andrew Scholey, Ph.D., of Swinburne University of Technology.
Tame Your Ticker
A high heart rate may harm your health, the American Journal of Hypertension reports. Compared to people with normal heart rates (60 to 80 beats per minute), those whose heart rates top 80 bpm are more than three times as likely to be obese and twice as likely to develop diabetes. Some easy ways to lower your standing heart rate is to try to exercise daily, eat heart-healthy foods like almonds and blueberries, and find ways to beat stress
Natural Brain Booster
Soak up the view: Being exposed to nature may improve your memory. Volunteers took a short-term memory test, then walked in a park for an hour. When they returned, they took a similar test and recalled 20 percent more. Researchers noticed comparable results when people viewed photographs of a natural setting, but not after they walked on city streets. Nature captures our attention without requiring much thought, so the brain can rest, says study co-author Marc G. Berman, M.S.E.
To lower your risk of Alzheimer’s disease, drink apple juice. Mice that were given the equivalent of two glasses every day for a month produced fewer beta amyloids, protein fragments that can injure brain cells and are found in higher amounts in Alzheimer's patients. Lead study author Tom Shea, Ph.D., of the University of Massachusetts says that an unknown component in the juice may halt a protein thought to stimulate beta amyloid production.

A FEW RULES TO WEARING RED LIPSTICK
Red can be intimidating, but red doesn’t mean a full siren mouth. Here is a quick and easy guide to the rules of wearing red.
1) There isn’t ONE perfect shade of red for every woman – There are so many gorgeous shades suitable for every skin tone. The objective is to try on as many as possible and look in the mirror, which shade makes you look brighter, fresher, more radiant.
2) Never wear red with heavy makeup – When wearing red the rest of our makeup pallet should be understated and super-casual. The quickest way to add age to your appearance is to wear heavy makeup.
3) It’s okay to dump the matching lip pencil – a more modern approach to wearing red is to build color by using a lip brush or your finger tip.
4) Keep your options open - Sometimes the texture of a red lipstick can be intimidating, there are many new formulations of red, there are glosses, stains, tints, glazes, matte, sheer and shimmers.
5) Remove the thoughts of associating red lips with sexual connotations – red lipstick is the quickest youth giving, skin-illuminating, eye brightening beauty trick around.

HOW TO LIGHTEN YOUR SKIN NATURALLY (PART 2)
Contd from HERE
Honey helps bleach skin while also acting as a moisturizing agent. Dry skin is a common factor that contributes to an uneven skin tone. Honey also has antibacterial properties that can help fade age spots and acne scars.
Apply pure honey to your face, leave it on for a few minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. This simple remedy will help remove dead skin cells, making your skin appear brighter and fresher than before. Do this once daily.
To make a skin-lightening mask, combine one teaspoon each of honey and lemon juice, one tablespoon of powdered milk, and one-half teaspoon of almond oil. Mix them well and apply it gently on the skin. Leave it on for 10 to15 minutes and then wash it off with cold water. Do this every other day.
The acidic property in lemons works as a natural bleaching agent for the skin and the high amount of vitamin C in them encourages new cell growth. Also, lemons have antioxidants that are very good for skin complexion.
Dip a cotton ball in freshly squeezed lemon juice and apply it directly on your face. You can even rub a cut lemon directly over the affected skin and allow the juice to stick to the skin. Leave it on for at least an hour and then wash your face with water. Do this once daily. This simple remedy will surely lighten your skin complexion and can also prevent the development of scars on your face.
Mix three teaspoons of lemon juice and one teaspoon of turmeric powder or tomato juice to make a paste. Apply the paste on the skin and leave it on for half an hour. Wash it off with water. Do this once daily.
Alternatively, mix together one teaspoon each of lemon juice, powdered milk and honey. Apply it on your skin and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing it off. Do this daily or every other day.
Note: When using these remedies, be sure there are no open wounds on your skin. The acidic nature of lemon juice can cause pain in open wounds. Also, lemon juice may not be suitable for sensitive skin or if you are allergic to lemons.
6. Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe vera can alleviate hyperpigmentation and restore your skin’s original color. Hyperpigmentation is one of the main causes of uneven skin tone.
Also, the cooling effect of aloe vera helps regenerate new cells and rebuild damaged tissue, which is important for healthy skin. This simple remedy using aloe vera gel can lighten dark spots and improve your overall skin complexion.
Cut the outer layers of an aloe vera leaf. Squeeze out the thick, jelly-like substance.
Apply the gel thoroughly on your skin.
Leave it on for about 30 minutes, and then wash it off with water.
Do this at least twice daily for two weeks.
If you do not have an aloe vera plant, you can buy aloe vera gel in the market.

HOW TO LIGHTEN YOUR SKIN NATURALLY !
Many people work hard to achieve fair and flawless skin. The market is flooded with skin-lightening creams and lotions. But such products have harmful chemicals that can ultimately damage your skin. Oftentimes the products are expensive, too.
You can save yourself some time and money by using natural remedies that will effectively brighten and lighten your skin complexion.
Yogurt, a by-product of milk, has many nutrients that are good for the skin. It also contains lactic acid that has bleaching properties. The following remedies are suitable for all skin types.
Gently rub plain yogurt onto your skin. Leave it on for a few minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. Do this once daily for several weeks to notice a significant change in your complexion.
Alternatively, mix one tablespoon of fresh yogurt with one-half tablespoon of honey. Apply the mixture on your face and neck. Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes and then wash it off with water. Do this daily to improve your skin tone and complexion.
You can also add a little lemon juice and some oatmeal to yogurt to make a thick paste, and apply it as a face mask. This remedy will also help keep your skin supple and moisturized.
The most important ingredient in skin care is vitamin C, which you can get in abundance from oranges. Plus, oranges have bleaching properties that can lighten your skin tone.
It has been found that regular consumption of fresh orange juice can greatly improve the overall texture of your skin as well as its suppleness. To lighten your skin, oranges can be used in two different ways.
Make a paste by combining two tablespoons of orange juice and a pinch of powdered turmeric. Apply the paste on your face and neck before going to bed. You can also apply it on your hands and legs. Wash it off the next morning. Do this daily.
Grind dried orange peels into powder. Mix one tablespoon of the powdered peels with one tablespoon of plain yogurt to make a paste. Apply the paste on your skin and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse it off with water. This will help lighten spots and other marks on your face. Do this once or twice a week, but no more than that.
3. Gram Flour
Gram flour is one of the best ingredients for people who wish to lighten their skin complexion. It contains various nutrients that help keep your skin very healthy. Using the remedy below every other day will help remove excess oil from your skin while retaining your skin’s natural moisture.
Mix some gram flour with a small amount of water or rose water to make a thick paste.
Apply it on your face, hands, and legs.
Leave it on until the paste dries. Then wash it off with water.
