Cupcake nails

cupcake nailsThese cute cupcake nails turned out great!

They took a few steps to do, so you need some patience, but they are well worth it.

Before you start, give your nails a clear base coat. Then you are ready for the design.

First, paint the top part of your nail a background color that will contrast with the frosting. We chose a blue color. Then paint the bottom half of your nail with the cupcake paper color. We chose a red. See the inset photo at the left.

When that dries, you can add the stripes fro the cupcake paper using a dotting tool or a very thin brush. Use a similar but contrasting color. We used pink.

Next, add the white frosting using a thick layer of nailpolish.  When that dries, you can add different colors for the sprinkles using a dotting tool. Finish it off with a cherry using a dotting tool and red polish. Too cute!

M&M nail art

Image posted from my Instagram @makeupbeautytips

My daughter made these  cute M&M nails and did them herself.  She is only 13 years old and loves to pain her nails.   I am trying to help her learn how to clean up the manicure a little bit though so that her cuticles are a little neater.  That is a skill that definitely takes practice.  (FYI, I cleaned up her cuticles in this photo with Photoshop before I posted it to my beauty blog.)

To get this look, use 5 super-bright colors of polish that are candy colored such as blue, pink, green yellow and red. Then use a white detail nail pen to draw the m’s.  Cover it with a top clear coat to make your nail art last longer without chipping.

You can see more of my nail art design ideas here.

I’m planning on adding a lot more photos of our nail art ideas. You can also follow me on Instagram @makeupbeautytips or Twitter @makeupbeautytip

Eye Makeup for Super-Heroines

see the larger image below

There is no doubt that Halloween is a time to go all out on your makeup!  No need to be shy or conservative. You are going for the ultra dramatic effects, so don’t try to downplay it at all. You are all in if you want to look your best for this special night.  Check out the examples in the photo below.

If you are going to as a super heroine, then you want to take a look at the comic book version of your heroine before you put on your makeup.  Dark sharp lines usually help play it up, along with very dramatic colors and ultra-dramatic accents.  Feel free to darken your eyebrows and draw your bright shadow colors from your lids all the way out your brows.

This is also a great time to experiment with false eyelashes to really make your super hero’s peepers explode off your face.  Liquid eyeliner  or a dark eyeliner pencil can really help draw in some of the details.

Some heroines have small masks as part of their costume. It might be a good idea to paint a mask onto your face, rather than wear an actual mask. It will have the dramatic look you want and be much more comfortable than maneuvering a mask over your other makeup.

If you’re looking for a good time to debut a new piece of body jewelry, this is also a perfect opportunity.  Being in character often gives you courage to try something new for your look, and introduce it into your beauty regimen. Whatever you do, this is no time to be shy.

Be a superstar with your makeup and your whole look. The details make all the difference.

Eye Shadow Secrets

eye shadow secretsThe key to great eye shadow application is the brushes. Trying to create that look whether it be smoky, sexy, cat eye or natural will be much easier with the proper applicators. Sephora and MAC both have great lines of brushes, but don’t be fooled by the price. Sonia Kashuk has a nice line of brushes available at Target at a very reasonable price. You don?t need to have dozens of brushes to put on eye shadow, but a small brush, a sponge-tip applicator, and a blending brush are must-haves to create a great look. Once you have the tools of the trade at hand, start creating a fabulous look for yourself.

To brighten and widen the look of your eyes, highlight the inner corner of the eye with a light shimmery shadow in white, peach, or silver. This also makes you appear more alert than you might be some days. You can also use this same color against the brow line to help create a lively and wide-eyed look. When applying color to the rest of the lid, use your sponge-tip applicator to apply the darkest color to the lower part of the lid and into the crease. Using a complimentary color and your brush, apply the next shadow to the remaining lid, but don?t go too high and cover up your light shadow.

Finally, blend using your blending brush and small, light circles. This basic application technique will give you a flawless look and have you ready for whatever the day may bring!

Zombie Makeup Tips

It’s not all about blood. Sometimes it’s about bruises.   Here are some tips to make your Halloween zombie makeup look really scary!

I like to save all the makeup I don’t like anymore in a special container that I use just for Halloween or costuming. It is usually much better quality makeup than the costume stuff you can purchase at Halloween stores, and it doesn’t cost you anything because you already own it! It’s a great way to re-purpose old makeup that you  otherwise never use.

To be the best looking zombie you can be, here are some tips:

  • Don’t over-whiten your face.  You want to look pale, but not like you’re wearing a mask. Blend it well down your neck and any other areas where your skin is showing. Be sure to blend it up into your hairline as well if you want to look realistic. And don’t forget your ears if they are showing.
  • Use some bright purple or red eyeshadow under your eyes to give a nice sunken bruised look. Most people just go for the black makeup, but trust me, you want a variety of colors.  Best colors for rotting flesh and bruises: black, purple, gray and dark green.
  • Forget mascara. You are trying to look sick and dead, remember? You want your eyes sullen. Don’t bother with eyeliner either. Seriously.
  • Use some fiber material such as Metamucil or oatmeal mixed with a little water for a thick paste to create areas of rotting flesh. Cover it with powder and then enhance with fake blood (corn syrup and food coloring), and with white rice to look like maggots crawling around in your wound.
  • Make areas of grey and purple, and some dark green eyeshadow on your arms, hands and face to highlight bruises.  Use a makeup brush to draw long veins on your arms and neck with purple or greenish tinted eyeshadow.
  • Create only a couple of strategic wounds instead of just dousing yourself in fake blood all over.
  • If you want to look like you came up out of the ground, add some decorative moss to your hair.
  • Get some black tooth wax to really change your appearance. Rub it on your teeth and your own friends won’t even recognize you anymore!  It comes off easily, so you don’t have to worry about it staining your teeth, and it usually costs about a dollar.
  • Hairspray can make your hair hold that hideous tease job you’re going to give it.
  • Most important: Stay in character!  Nothing sets off your zombie look like your behavior does!

Shimmery Diamond Makeup tips

Compliment your smile by making your eyes sparkle like diamonds.  Glitter makeup products around your eyes for special occasions can make the occasion even more special.  Glitter or sparkling appliques are actually quite easy to apply. In fact, you really can’t go wrong, because the whole look is kind of over the top anyway.

Make sure your skin is moisturized before you begin. Apply all of your foundation and concealer that is needed.  Then it’s time to start on the eyes.

Begin with a dramatic eyeliner and then go for bright eyeshadow colors on your lid.  Don’t apply your mascara just yet, otherwise you will have it stuck all in your eyelashes.   Now you are ready for the glitter.  Apply it to the brow area and along your temple and cheeks if you are really going all out.  Be sure to add just a touch under your lower lash about two thirds of the way out, but not in the inner corner of your eye since that will make you appear too crosseyed.

If you are applying rhinestones to your skin, do not use your fingers. Use a swab or a q-tip for a more precise application.  Rhinestones often look good under the eye along the cheekbone. You can even do one eye for a more dramatic effect.  Once you have applied your glitter, you are now ready for a thick dramatic coat of mascara.  Make sure your lips are super glossy and shiny as well.

Finally, compliment the entire look with some  synthetic diamond rings to complete your entire outfit like these moissanites.  These are so beautiful, and will look great on you! Nothing glitters like diamonds!

Organic Skin Care Tips

Some of the best and most cost-effective skin and hair products are natural ingredients that are also environmentally friendly. Instead of using a harsh astringent to clear out pores after you wash your face, try using witch hazel instead. It is much less abrasive but provides the same cleansing and antiseptic properties. Once pores have been thoroughly cleaned, whip up an egg white and chill it for 5 minutes. Then apply it evenly to skin for a few minutes and feel those pores tighten and shrink.

To keep hair looking bright, add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to lukewarm water for an after-conditioning rinse. If it’s been a long day and the eyes are looking tired soak a couple green tea bags in cool water then apply to eyes while you relax for a few minutes. The naturally-occurring caffeine will tighten under-eye skin in no time.

A little baking soda on your toothbrush can whiten teeth as well as fingernails with a gentle scrub. Be sure to rinse well though. These quick and easy fixes already exist in most homes, we just forget to give them a chance in a new role sometimes. Give it a try!
