The art of make-up is so intriguing to me and I enjoy improving my technique from any inspiration that I come across! Here I'd like to share all of that with you :)

Using a lip liner with define the edges of your mouth, making them appear larger. Try playing with the shape of your lips with the liner, maybe you want a curvier, 1950’s lip, or a more angular one. In my personal opinion, those with smaller lips can rock brighter and darker colors more often because it looks more understated than those with bigger lips, like me. I have a pretty good sized kisser, so wearing louder lip colors is something I’ll save for once in awhile because there’s A LOT of color going on since there’s a lot of lip space. This is just my personal preference, I think all women shouldn’t be afraid to bust out an awesome lipstick whenever they want!
*Also, try dabbing a shimmery powder or highlight (benefit high beam or moon beam for example) on the center of your bottom lip on top of your lipstick, and your cupid’s bow to make your lips appear a little fuller.@3 years ago with 2 notes

i wanted to ask you about something from your make up routine
i've heard it mentioned before
setting eyeliner with eyeshadow?
what does it do and how do you do it, because my eyeliner (kohl on water line, liquid or pencil on top lash line) smudges like crazy?
One of my favorite tricks! Simply press gently but firmly over your liquid liner with black shadow with a flat or angled brush. It’s going to intensify the color and staying power, much like setting your foundation with powder. Also try using a waterproof formula ,an eyeshadow primer, and avoid rubbing your eyes (it’s hard to resist, I know!)@3 years ago with 4 notes
