Deep Set Eyes!

11 Jun

One of the best things you can do is Highlight your lid.  God gave you a crease you don’t need to deepen it.  So instead of hightlighting your brow bone like all the other eye shapes you want do put midtone on it.  You are trying to push back your browbone and bring forward your lid.  You also want to be very light handed with your accent color.  Just on the very corner of your eye don’t bring very much into the crease.  Demi or her make up artist 🙂 did a really good job in this picture.  She is such a natural beauty I think.  Deep set eyes can tend to be a hooded eye as you age so make sure you use a FABULOUS eye cream to help with wrinkles!  Deep set eyes are beautiful help them guide them to be that way!

Exceptional Eyes!!

6 Jun

Your eyes are the first place that we show aging.  So one of the first things that we need to make sure is that we have a Fabulous eye cream!  One of the main things about aging is hydration.  If your skin isn’t hydrated watch the wrinkles appear.  So,  number one in an eye cream is make sure that it is very hydrating.  I know that for me you should probably start using an eye cream once you graduate high school.  I KNOW I KNOW  crazy but true.  I thought I was super young and I was and then I was walking down the mall one day and one of the kiosk ladies asked me do you want to know how you can get rid of those eye wrinkles and I was APPAULED  I do not have eye wrinkles.  But I went home and sure enough they had crept up on me.  The sad part is I had a FABULOUS eye cream in my make up bag I just wasn’t consistently using it.  So moral of the story start using it so you don’t have to worry about them coming for years.  Great thing though they dissappeared so even better news people you can reverse the hands of father time!!  A great eye cream can have vitamin c, collagen producing peptides.  You can also look for an eye cream that brightens to help if you have light circles.

Anti-Aging Eye Creams For Wrinkles

  • Wrinkles and fine lines around the eye area are always associated with aging;  ingredients in anti-aging eye creams such as caffeine, alcohol, retinol,  alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA), copper peptides and vitamin C are used to tighten  skin and stimulate collagen growth. Collagen gives skin elasticity and  hydration, giving it a more youthful look

Transformation Tuesday

Jess’s Blog.  I read her blog.  So great Click Here  She lost over 120 lbs. I never had to lose that much, but even half that was hard so I can only imagine how hard it was.  I want to send out kudos.  Jess such an amazing story.  I truly agree that there is no magic pill, no magic shake its all about eating less than your out put 🙂  calories in calories out.  One of the things I love is Jess has a 3D virtual weightloss makeover tool that you can make.  I think that it could be a really great way to get an actual picture of what you would like when you lost the weight.  Such a great idea.  Have a picture of you motivate you not just a picture in the magazine.  I do think having something visual to remind you that it can help remind you to make better food choices and stay active.  YOU CAN DO IT!!

Wide Set Eyes!

4 Jun

The way you figure out if you have wide set eyes is if you take the length of the eye and try to fit it in the middle of both eyes if you have extra space than you have wide set eyes.  Wide Set eyes this is for sure one of the eye shapes you would NOT want to do the Cat eye.  Bring as much dark color into the inner corner.  You really want to layer in that inner corner.  Usually you would put the accent color in to the iris the middle of the pupil.  With the wide set eyes you want to pull in in farther than that.  I have a friend that has wide set eyes and seeing without her makeup  is strange because I hardly ever see her without it 🙂 I hate to say that.  But when she applies it the right way it works and looks FABULOUSLY!!!  I chose this picture because her makeup is not doing her any favors.  She needs to pull that color farther over and has too much highlight or not enough midtone.

Don’t “weight” to exercise! Eat for two?

29 May

It is a journey not a destination!  Eve is in a very similar situation and I think that that happens a lot.  You have a weightloss problem, you lose weight, you gain weight, etc.  Click Here I think it makes a difference to have people you are accountable too, and many people have started blogs for this reason I think.  I have had 3 kids and when I was pregant with my first I was a little heavier and I wish I had worked on being thinner before the first one.  I lost the weight after my 2nd one, and my third I was at my goal weight before I got pregnant and that was nice, and here I am thinking about doing it again. 🙂  I used to think when I got pregnant I heard that you can’t start working out.  So I used it as an excuse.  I also used I am eating for 2!  I don’t think that is true at all from all the info I have researched and talked about to my doctors you only need an additional 400 or 500 calories and guess what if you are already eating too many calories guess what you don’t need to add anything.  Eating healthy, working out, will only help you.  What do you think?  Do you eat for two!?  Haha do you eat for two now even if you are not pregnant.  Your stomach really does shrink or grow based off of how much you eat.  After I started losing weight I was surprsed how much I truly did eat and how much crap I ate!  It adds up quickly!

Close set Eyes!

28 May

Close set eyes are figured if you can’t fit the length in between both your eyes than you have close set eyes.  Alright so I am using celebrities because I want you to see that just because you have one doesn’t mean you should be upset or think it is the wrong one.  At first I thought mine was a negative, but I really have found I love playing with my own specific colors and applications.  When you have close set eyes.  The one thing you for sure don’t want to do is have a really dark accent and pull it super far into the other eye.  The more you pull it in the closer they appear.  So the accent color you want to make sure you leave it just on the outside and you can for sure do that cat eye look.  That would specifically work really great with this eye shape.  So think about that.  You can wing it out.  This is the one eye shape that if you want to go outside of the line of the corner to your eye brow you can.  It won’t be a bad thing.  So remember that.  When choosing how to make it look more dramatic.  Instead of pulling it farther in push it out a little bit.
