Different Eyeliner Looks

Hello Everyone!
Today I wanted to do something to explain different types of looks when wearing eyeliner, most of us line our eye almost everyday to go or do something, and I don't know if it happens to you, but sometimes is boring wearing the same thing over and over again, is just absurd, so i try to change it up a bit and show you guys a few different looks that you can try!

The "Not trying" look/ Simple/ everyday:
This one I think we all know it and we probably all have used at some point in our lives, but this eyeliner look consist on a thin line of the eyeliner all over the eye, preferably the same thickness throughout the eye.

The "Katy Perry" round eye look:
For this one, what you most know is that the liner is thick, but its thickness is bigger on the center of the eyelid, giving your eye a more rounded look, it also works best if you apply eyeliner or dark eyeshadows to the bottom lashes and make it thicker on the middle as well. 

The "Pin Up" Look: 
It references to 1950's look with a "modern twist", this eyeliner look goes from thin to thick to a flick. So basically, thinner on the inside corner of the eye, goes a bit thicker when you drag it to the middle of the eyelid and when you do the flick it should be a bit more thicker on the outside corner of the eye.

The "Feline/Cat" eyeliner look:
This one is all about elongating your eyes, the thickness should stay almost the same throughout the eyelid, but the inner corner should always be the thinnest part of the eyeliner, and the flick should be more elongated than thicker, because, if you "drag" it towards your eyebrow it will make your eyes appear larger and make the more awake.

The "Egyptian/Cleopatra" Eyeliner Look:
Pretty self explanatory, but if you don't know who Cleopatra is, well you probably live with SpongeBob. The trick to this type of look, is that the inner corner is the center of attention, what makes this look is trying to resemble an elongated and "fancy" eye, when you get to the inner corner it should be drag all the way to your tear duct and from there taken to the lower lashline, now the ancestors used to wear the black kohl eyeliner even in the waterline, and if you are comfortable with that go ahead and do it. Even though is not necessary to get the eyeliner all over the eye, you can leave it in the tear duct, or just elongate the inner corner without anything else.

All Around The Eye Eyeliner look:
For this one, you take your eyeliner and place it on your bottom and lower lash line, not into the waterline of the eyes, now if you do this I recommend applying a nude or yellow -ish eyeliner to the waterline, this will brighten your eyes and make them look bigger.

The Graphic Eyeliner Look:
Any look that might have a geometrical or that is not according to the shape of your eye is a graphic look, like Lorde in royals, Katy Perry Dark Horse, and many others this look screams Center of attention, and believe me it does, and if you do it right you'll get the best compliments 

The Double Winged Eyeliner:
Again pretty self explanatory, but this eye look involves two wings in one eye. Now, it really doesn't matter the kind of thickness that you want throughout the lid of your eye, but when you get to almost the end of your eye, do the first wing, next in your bottom lasline should come the second wing. WHY BEFORE IT ENDS? because you should be applying a lighter color to your waterline making it all the way across and separating one wing from the other.  Also, you can make the wing form the bottom lash line go up or go down, as you can see in the picture below.

All Over the Eye Eyeliner Look:
In this look you will need to put the eyeliner in both of your waterlines and on the top and bottom lash lines of your eyes.

The "Grunge/Punk/Bedroom" Eyeliner Look:
For this one look, you do the "all over the" look first and then smudge the top and bottom lash line to get the messy look, and guys, the messier it is, the BETTER it looks :D

Tips for going out on a Date

So, we all know valentines Day is here, and let's be honest, it doesn't matter if we have a date or a night out with the girls, we all want to have some fun out there, don't we?  I decided to gather up a few things  that I know, and some advice that has been giving to me in the past by far more wiser people, so keep reading if you want to know a few tips :D

  • BE CONFIDENT: now, it doesn't matter if you're hanging with your friends or you BF, always be confident, and wear whatever makes you feel confident!… believe me it has happen to me before, that the guys i was dating wanted me to wear something completely different to what I like to wear and what i feel comfortable with, so the whole date was sooooo awkward, and just.. don't do it, go for what you feel comfortable.
  • As said before, COMFORTABLE IS THE WAY TO GO, specially with makeup, if you never wear false eyelashes, don't start experimenting now, BIG NO NO, it is going to make everything awkward and if you don't put them right and they start to fall down on your cheek, your date is going to run away like flash!
  • DON' CHANGE FOR NO ONE, and this is just if they are trying to change what you wear and how you look, (in my own experience), like don't even try it, you are going to be doing all of those things for somebody that you are just a project, no way Jose, i'm not getting into that again. But when it comes to attitude problems, you might want to keep it low key when you date o BF or GF is around… just saying..

Now, following those tips into makeup…
  • Wear makeup that you feel good with, honestly if you used to wearing full face of foundation, contour and highlight like Kim K, by all means do it! if you are only used to mascara just use mascara, don't try to impress the guy/girl because you might apply it in a wrong way, and let's be real you might have a cakey face
  • LIPGLOOS IS A NO, if you want color, go ahead and apply something like a balm stain, but no  bright lipstick and definitely no lipgloss IF you know there might be some kissing in the next scene! First of all lipstick might rub all over his lips, beard, chin or wherever else you might be kissing, and the lipgloss is just going to be completely sticky and the kisses are no good… 
  • Go low with shimmers, now I'm saying this because sometimes we might go crazy with the shimmer in the blush and the highlight and on top of all of that the bronzer is shimmery too, you are going to look like a disco ball and that ain't good.
  • Try to be natural, now I'm saying this because in my experience guys like when the girls are not wearing makeup… well poor little souls, we actually do wear makeup but we know how to make it look natural, oh and BTW, if you are comfortable with it wear as much makeup as you want!
  • Finally, if you are going to a party or something like that go ahead and glam it up a bit, i know when i go out on dates i keep most of my makeup pretty low key, but there comes a time when i want to be glam, so I do it, and believe  it feels good :D 
Basically, wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident, some say those are the sexiest things a girl can wear! Go ahead Pretty Faces enjoy your dates or nigh outs!

Sunscreen, is it really that important?

I think we all know what a sunscreen does, but do we know what they are?

A sunscreen is a product that helps prevent then suns ultraviolet radiation from getting to the skin and damaging it.
LITTLE FACT: it actually takes 20 minutes for your unprotected skin to start turning red, using a sunscreen theoretically prevents reddening 15 times longer.

To get a little bit more into what ultraviolet radiation is a form of electromagnetic radiation and the sun is the main source, and tanning beds also have them, so you are not safe snooki!
There are 2 types of UV:

  • UVA: this is the one that penetrates the skin more deeply damaging skin cells. this kind of rays penetrate clouds and glass, they are the dominate tanning rays, and the biggest responsible in photoaging. 
Did you know that when tanning the skin turns darker trying to protect itself from further DNA damage?
  • UVB: it causes skin reddening and sunburns. it damages the skin superficially, the snow, ice, water anything that is reflective bounces 80% of rays, which basically means that it kits the skin twice (when coming down, and then going back up)
you should be applying sunscreen everyday, and believe me I forget it too, but since i have done a lot of research for this, i started applying it, like crazy, to my skin. 
you should apply sunscreen at least 15 before applying anything else to the skin, but the timing is yours, it depends on how long your skin takes to absorb a product. 
You have to re apply your sunscreen, specially when you are underwater, it doesn't matter if they are waterproof. 
So, honestly sunscreen should be IMPORTANT in your everyday routine, because you can prevent a lot, like wrinkles, cancer, dark spots, and many other things.
BTW: titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are the active products on sunscreen that are supposed to cause the white cast you get she you take pictures, but i believe it can just be the mica products that your using.
