10 Eye Makeup Tips and Tricks

Okay, here’s the deal. Makeup can make you look great and feel beautiful. But the million dollar question is how do you get that perfect makeup that will make your eyes pop?

There are things you can do to ensure that your makeup lasts all day long and gives you that perfect look. I'm going to share with you 10 essential eye makeup tips and tricks that I use and teach my students.

I hope to give you some inspiration and a little bit more creativity. I assure you that these tips will help on a day-to-day basis with your eyes and eyebrows.

1.       How to Lift and Define Your Eyebrow
You need to try this priceless trick if you want to define and lift your eyebrows as well as open up your eyes. You will need some concealers and a concealer brush that has a good precision and is also waterproofed. 

Starting on top of your eyebrows, make sure your face is relaxed. Then, look straight into the mirror and line the concealer around your eyebrow. Make sure to follow the line of your natural brow shape. Before you blend the makeup on top of your eyebrow, take a little more concealer and do the same thing on the bottom portion of your eyebrow.

Make sure you connect the concealer on the very end. Take the same brush, wipe off the access, then go back in and just blend the concealer out. On the bottom part, you will need to do very gentle, tiny strokes going down.

To set the concealer, take the same brush and some powder. Then, pat it on top of the concealer to make sure it stays full all day long.

2.       How to Make Your Eyes Appear Bigger?
OK, I am sure you guys have heard this joke before but I am still going to ask you. Which body parts grow ten times its size when stimulated? Think about this. Wait! It’s your pupils!

This trick is for those that like their eyes bigger. It suits most of the skin tones. Don’t worry; it’s quite simple. All you need is a white eye pencil or a nude eye pencil.

Starting with a white pencil, apply it straight onto your waterline. Doing this will instantly make your eyes looking larger. You can also try the nude eye pencil which is not as noticeable as the white pencil. Voila!

3.    Tape to Help Guide Eyeliner or Eyes Shadow
This next trick is going to help you to guide your eyeliner, or even help you guide the process of blending your eyeshadows. For this, all you need is some scotch tape.

Place the tape right underneath your lower lash line and align it with your eyebrow. This is going to end right below the eyebrow. When putting on the eye shadow, I usually start by using one or two darker shades.

Next, I blend it with my fluffy brush using the tape as my guide. After this, you need to start drawing a line right on top of the tape. With this, you get to see how great the tape is as a template to help guide your eyeliner and eye shadow. Remove the tape and you’re done!

4.       Ultimate Tape Method
This method is a little bit trickier. You are going to apply a tape like you did before. Then you are going to layer another piece of tape on top of your eyelid to create a triangle on the outer corner of your eye.

This is going to be your winged liner. Fill between the two pieces of tape and remove them. After that, you need to go back into the middle and the inner corner of your eye to fill in any gaps between the tapes. And that will be your winged liner.

5.       Join the Dots
This eye makeup tip is a popular method called Join the Dots. All you do is draw a few dots on top of your lash line. Keep them as close to your lash line as possible but make sure you can still see them.

Go all the way out to where you want your wing to be. Then all you need to do is get your eyeliner, join the dots, and you are ready to go.

6.       How to Make Your Eyes Appear Brighter, Wider and More Awake
Do you want someone to see you as the light of their life? If yes, then try this trick. You will need a bright eye shadow and a brush. Apply the makeup in the inner corner of your eyes and little bit to the side. Next step is to take the same brush with the same eye shadow and use it in the middle of your eyelid.

Then you can start blending it a little bit.  The last step of becoming someone’s light of their life is to take the same brush and eyeshadow and highlight the brow bone.

7.       How to Make Your Eyeliner Sharp and Bright
You will need a concealer and a tiny little precision or concealer brush. Firstly, line your eyeliner, then take the concealer brush with the concealer on and start applying it to the outer corner of your eyes.

Use your finger to blend out the excess. Once the concealer is blended, take some translucent loose powder on the same brush. Using the brush set the concealer in place. Doing this will make your eyeliner look so sharp and bright.

8.       How to coat the lower lash line with mascara without the cleanup
This eye makeup tip is a simple trick that will make your life a little bit easier. All you need is a card, old business card works great, or you can use the tape method as well. But I prefer the card because I can hold it to where I need it to be.

 You will need to place it underneath your eyelashes and start applying the mascara. This little card trick is great because:
• It spreads the mascara evenly and makes it less clunky
• You don’t have to do a lot of cleanups afterward

9.       How to Fix Uneven Eyeliner
Another eye makeup tip you’d want to learn about is how to fix uneven eyeliner. Let’s say you are drawing your eyeliner on your top lash line, and one side is thicker, or it’s messier than the other side. And you just don’t have the time to go back, rinse it and restart the whole process again.
All you need is a metallic darker eyeshadow. I like the gray shade, but you can also use the brown shade as well. Don’t go for black, but stick to either brown or gray.

So, what you need to do is to take some eyeshadow using a tiny smudge brush and start from the outer corner of your eye smudging the eyeliner. This eye makeup trick creates a softer smoky look to the eyeliner.

10.    How to Get the Most Color Payoff and Vibrancy from the Eye Shadow
When you are doing your eyes, the question is how do you get the best from that particular eye shadow?

The trick is primer! Don’t just use any old shadow primer. Go for a white eye pencil primer. Take the white eye pencil and apply it wherever you’re going to place the eye shadow. Get your ring finger and just slightly blend out the edges. Apply eyeshadow on it, and you will see the colors pop!

When it comes to having a perfect eye makeup, you have to be creative and keep an eye out for new beauty tips and tricks. So, what can you take away from this detailed guide on having the perfect makeup for your eyes? I hope some of these were able to inspire you to do your makeup a little different!

Review: Cantu Coconut Curling Cream

It you are looking for a natural hair curl enhancer for your wash n' go, perm rod sets, twist out then I would like to suggest the Cantu Coconut Curling Cream. It works on wet and dry hair as it defines, moisturizes and add sheen to natural hair.

I like to use the Cantu Coconut Curling Cream for my wash n' go. It instantly defines my natural curls. The Cantu Coconut Curling Cream can be used alone or as a combination with other holding product such as a gel.

It find that it is not a great combination with the Eco Styler Krystal Gel as it leaves the hair with flakes, and noticeable residue sitting on top of the hair; therefore, I avoid using this kind of gel with it.

I washed my hair, proceed to do the LOC method by putting a mixture of oil on my freshly wash dripping wet hair and sealed it with the Cantu Shea Butter Leave-in Conditioner. After this I proceed to do my flat twist using the the Cantu Coconut Curling Cream.

The consistency of the product is a creamy white. When applied to hair it looks white but it doesn't leave a white consistency on the hair. The Cantu Coconut Curling Cream has a subtle scent of coconut that does not linger for long on the hair.

It is perfect for thick coarse hair, it helps to control frizz and it doesn't weigh down my hair.

The Cantu Coconut Curling Cream is packaged in a 12oz. round jar with a cap that twist to open. The product claims to not contain sulfates, silicones, parabens and is free of mineral oil.

Airbrush Makeup vs Traditional Makeup                                                              

Understanding the difference between airbrush makeup and traditional method is the first major step towards being an expert in makeup application. This is so because there is a huge difference between these two methods of makeup application in terms of cost, time consumed, as well as the achieved results.

Traditional makeup is a style of makeup application that is done with the use of items such as sponge, foundation brush or fiber brush. This method can be used to apply cream, powder or liquid foundation but it tends to be messy. The product in use must also be in plenty as the use of brush and sponge give a thick consistency and therefore may be termed as uneconomical. Makeup application in traditional ways takes longer to complete.

Airbrush makeup is a modern day style of makeup application that involves the use of an airbrush gun, special silicone or water based airbrush foundation and a makeup air compressor. A fine mist of this special foundation is then sprayed gently from the compressor on to the skin giving a fine and even covering. This style gives a fine covering and therefore it is cost effective as just a little amount of foundation is required to provide a complete covering as well as leaving enough space for the skin to breath. It also leaves one looking as natural as possible and brings out the beauty as intended.

With this in mind therefore, it is paramount to seek the best suppliers of the beauty product and you can

After finding out the airbrush makeup providers the next important step is to select the shade that suits your skin. This is simply done by swiping different colors of foundation in your skin so as to identify the one that suits your skin color. Moreover, it is important to put into consideration the color of the skin around your neck so as to be in a position to select a color that will match both the face and the neck skin color.

In conclusion, in order to enhance beauty, it is crucial to go for the best makeup kit that saves on both time and money, that is easy to use and brings out an even skin surface. Additionally, the choice of the makeup kit must be keenly done so as to match the skin color of the user.

To Transition or Big Chop to Natural Hair

Getting tired of that relaxer? Then I guess you are thinking of growing back your hair to the natural state. The big question is should I go through the process of transitioning or just take the risk and do the 'big chop' (start fresh). First, let me define and explain the differences of transitioning and big chop for you.

What is Transitioning?
Transitioning is a process of growing out your relaxed/permed hair to become its natural form. Transitioning can be difficult to manage since you have to deal with two different textures of hair. Special attention  should be taken to new growth to prevent breakage.

What is Big Chop?
Don't be scared of this process, just embrace it. Big chop is the result of moving pass the transitioning stage by cutting all the perm/relaxed sections off into a short or low cut hair style.

I would like to help you decide by sharing some tips on what would work better for you: to transition or big chop to natural.

Transitioning from Relaxed to Natural
If you are worried about how you look with short hair or you prefer to retain your length then transitioning to natural hair should be just right for you. If you choose to transition then you will have to deal with two (2) textures (new hair growth and relaxed hair) which sometimes not that easy to manage. One should also take into consideration how long they want to go through the transitioning phase to be completely natural. A trim is recommended during this stage and it can be done every 2-3 months or every year. These tips will make your transitioning journey way easier than you had thought.

Read about My Transitioning Journey

Wash and Detangle
For these days you will need a wide tooth comb. For detangling apply as much conditioner and start from the ends and work your way up to the roots. Your hair should feel more manageable and easier to comb through just by doing this. The weakest point of your hair is where the natural hair meets the processed hair. Be gene when detangling and styling the hair to prevent breakage. To better manage my hair I would do a mixture of conditioner with olive oil. This method made my hair much easier to manage. Wash hair with any shampoo of choice or one that specifically rids the hair of build-ups from old products. Also follow up with a deep conditioner and do a protein treatment every 6-8 weeks. Applying the LOC method to seal in moisture is required after every wash if you want to keep your hair healthy and strong.

Styling during the Transitioning Stage
When styling it is best to avoid head at all cost. If you choose to use heat make sure to use a heat protectant. At the transitioning stage the hair is already fragile and can be easily damage; therefore, low manipulation styles that does not cause much tension on the hair is needed. During my transition stage I wore mostly box braids and often after a wash day I would do a flat twist style that would result into a flat twist out after wearing for several days. It is important to choose a low manipulation style that does not require daily styling and maintenance. To also protect your edges use a satin bonnet.

The Big Chop
If you just want to be free from relaxer or you prefer a low cut hairstyle then the big chop method is your best option. By doing the big chop it allows you to start fresh by allowing your hair to grow from a short phase. This process will help to thicken the hair and allow it to grow more even. After the big chop process you might need to figure how to maintain your TWA (tweeny weenie afro) short hairstyle if you haven't done so already.

Get a Professional Hair Cut
Even though some naturals choose to do the big chop on their own, it is recommended to have this done by a professional, so that you can get a nice clean cut to achieve the best result. After the hair cut your hair grow back eventually, so don't be scared to rock your twa.

TWA Wash Day
Wash days for TWA should be super easy. There is not much need for detangling. If the hair is short but of length I would consider washing and deep-conditioning once every week to remove build-ups. Daily moisturizing is necessary to prevent the hair from becoming dry and brittle.

Styling after the Big Chop
There is not much styling options after the big chop. It is possible to try styles such as finger coils, mini bantu knots, tapered cut, sprucing with a hair color of choice etc.

Which method did you choose? Transitioning or the Big Chop
Whether you choose to transition or big chop the main idea is what works for you. While some prefer to big chop and skip the long transitioning process both will end with the same result. I went through the transitioning stage and I also did a mini-chop when my hair reach the utmost stage of the transitioning journey.
