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

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!

Lip Tips. Are you smooch ready?

Pucker up and get ready for those perfectly smooch able lips! Applying lipstick, stain, or gloss can be a challenging task but not if you use some of these helpful tips.

If you are using lipstick, use a bolder color and toned down makeup on the rest of your face to make your lips pop. Using the pointy end of the lipstick tube can help you outline your lips if you don’t have time for lip liner. Just be careful not to smear it onto your teeth.

With lip stain it is easy to get the right amount of coverage and it has that built in shininess. It’s great for a quick and pretty look. I would suggest using a lighter color and focus the rest of your makeup super powers on your eyes.

Lip gloss is always fun no matter what your age, but  especially for teens. If you apply a shiny or sparkly gloss focusing on the center of your lips, it can make them look bigger. People’s eyes will be drawn to the middle of your lips which is the biggest part of them. This optical illusion is sure to help anyone who has been deprived of lip plumpness.

Pretty in Pink – Teen tips for applying blush

Smile big for those pretty pink cheeks! I’m talking about blush of course.

The easiest way to put blush on in the right spot is to smile. When you smile you can see that your cheeks get big and round, how pretty! Use a big brush with the blush on it and just brush it over your cheeks. Start at the edge of your cheek that is closest to your nose and swoosh it toward about an inch or two in front of your ear. Make sure most of the color is on your cheeks and not the side of your face.

To pick the right color just look in a mirror and decide what your skin tone is, light, fair, medium, olive, tan, brown, dark brown, or black. Then decide what color cheeks would stand out on your face without drawing all of the attention away from your eyes and lips. Your cheeks should be a subtle beauty, but there are many ways to add to that beauty.

To get defined cheekbones, smile put a hint of lightly colored bronzer in a ” U ” shape framing the bottom side of your cheeks. You can also add a hint of highlighter on the top side of your cheeks. Apply the blush last if you are adding in these extra steps.  Make sure it is all very blended!

Fantastic Fingernails Tips

Great looking fingernails start with a healthy base. The first step to any great manicure is a cuticle cream that nourishes the nail. Sally Hansen has several options that will heal gnarly cuticles while also strengthening the nail itself.

Next, apply a quality basecoat so that you have a smooth, even surface to start your beautiful nail project. A quality basecoat will fill in any ridges while repairing splits and peeling. This also will protect your nails from staining yellow which often happens if you wear a lot of dark nail polish colors. Be sure to let this step dry completely before adding color or techniques.

With all of the new products out there like gel nail press-ons, nail art pens, and special effect polishes, salon nails are easier than ever to achieve at home. For dark and bright colors like reds, blues, greens, and browns, always use 2 coats allowing each coat to dry before adding the next one. For lighter pinks and nude tones, one coat of a quality polish like OPI or Sally Hansen Diamond should be enough.

Finish off any look with a fast drying topcoat. These help to the nail to dry properly, add shine, reduce chipping, and can also nourish fingernails.  Finally, be sure to moisturize your cuticles one last time to keep them soft and pretty!
