A quick lesson in eyeliner application:
1. To make your top lashes look longer and prettier (which in turn will make your eyes appear bigger and more wide open), curl them with an eyelash curler before applying mascara.
2. For larger-looking eyes, apply mascara to both the top and bottom lashes.
3. Sick of getting black marks on your eyelids when you apply mascara? To prevent it happening, hold a mirror horizontally at chest height in one hand and hold the mascara wand in the other, and look down into the mirror to apply it. This method will help stop you blinking, meaning you will be less likely to get mascara on your eyelids. If this doesn’t help, try a different mascara. The shape, size and type of brush can influence the ease of application, as can the consistency of the formulation. (more…)
In the Marc Jacobs spring/summer 2011 show, there was a clear message in the makeup:
“More is more”
“Everything in excess”!
The models faces gave off a distinctive retro vibe, signalling that the ’70s are back with a vengeance.

My top smokey eyeshadow tip! Always start with eye makeup, not base. If you apply your foundation first it is likely to be ruined by fallout. So, to save time and effort, begin with eyeshadow, then, clean up the area beneath the eye before you follow up with foundation.
