I was flipping a fashion and beauty magazine this morning, looking for new eye makeup tips , something that might cover the puffiness of my eyes- since i dont get enough sleep- and it hit me that most celebs and models almost don’t sleep at all- How the hell do they still look so fresh, radiant, fit, simply perfect!!!
Here is the answer 🙂
Even the best make up artists and most expensive products may not hide wrinkles, cellulite, fat area around the belly,
it may not really tighten your pores, thicken your hair locks, remove your shine without drying your skin…
so, RELAX… it’s all photoshop!

|Breathe normally and relax your lips and your shoulders. If you hold your breath you might appear as though you’re tense or suffocating.|
|Choose solid or neutral colors that complement your skin tone and stay away from horizontal strips big patterns and single tones|
|Keep the shine down especially on a warm day, use a good pressed powder, and make sure your eye make-up is defined and not smudged.|
|Point your nose away from the camera and learn which angle flatters your face best|
|Brush your hair into place. Frizzy or loose hairs can appear messy, also try to avoid pony tails.|
|Don’t look at the camera; look through it|
|Smile, think happy thoughts 🙂|

HAIR & MAKEUP
- A peachy blush creates a healthy glow when placed high on cheekbones. To break up any semblance of a double chin, use a matte bronzer along the jawline.
- Dust a light iridescent shimmer just under the eyebrows, on the inside corners of eyes, and along cheekbones for definition.
- To add shine to hair, mix a silicone-based glossing serum with mousse for styling.
- Highlights around the hairline should be one shade lighter than your natural color to amp up shine.
- Avoid light colors or anything shiny on areas of your body that you want to detract from.
- To help thin out your face, tilt your head slightly up and forward.
- If you’re sitting, cross your legs to cut the apparent width of your body in half, then lean slightly forward.
- In group shots, avoid standing at the end — that person always looks heavier.
Aka- Winged-Out Eyeliner
Here is how to get the look as seen on Glamour mag.
Use a light eye pencil to create a sketch of how your “wings” will look. This way, you can easily make corrections by erasing with a Q-Tip. The line should start as thin as possible and grow fatter and fatter toward the outer corner of your eye (you’ll trace over it with liquid liner later, and many liquid liners are shaped like calligraphy pens, which’ll help you nail the perfect thickness). How far your wings go is up to you (it depends on your eye shape, face shape, personality), but keep in mind that a few centimeters go a long way, and less is usually more.
Step away from the mirror for a couple minutes, then come back. You should be able to tell right away if your eyeliner looks symmetrical on both sides. If it doesn’t, erase and adjust. If you really have trouble getting the angles of your wings to match up, trace a business card–that’s a trick Gwen Stefani’s makeup artist, Kathy Jeung, told me once, and somehow it really does help!
Trace over the pencil with liquid liner, resting your elbow on a table to help keep your hand steady.
