Hello Kitty in black leather for Mac Cosmetics


Ok, this is one of the strangest ads this year. It’s genius, unconventional and weird.

hello-kitty-mac-cosmetics

Hello Kitty teamed up with Mac Cosmetics for two product collections that were released this month. To promote the products, the two created this commercial that’s absolutely original and one-to-remember.

The ad has the Alice in Wonderland theme. It’s a bit crazy and when watching feels like the creators were high when working on the concept.

You see Alice follow what it seems to be the Cheshire Cat and then find herself in a strange place with a lot of shirtless guys in tight black leather pants and huge black Hello Kitty heads, and the leading Kitty who is their dominatrix or whoever she as, at least they all obey to her order.


PARTY MAKE UP – Bold makeup


party-make-up
1. Start with a matching shade of foundation. Apply a darker shade on the broader parts of your face which you want to recede.

2. Apply powder and then blush on your cheeks, adding color gradually. Use some blusher on the sides of the forehead and chin also.

3. Use an eye shadow kit with a high lighter. Apply some high lighter on the space beneath the brows. Apply the medium color on upper eye lid only. Swap the darkest shade on the crease, between the two shades and blend well.

4. Put a little dark eye shadow also beneath the eyes, touching the lower lash line, with a thin brush. Start from the outer corner and extend it just a little, may be till the middle. See what suits you. This adds more color to your eyes.

5. Define your eyes with a kajal and an eye liner. Sweep two coats of mascara. Apply a final coat of colored mascara if you wish. Apply lipstick. Blot with tissue and then reapply for a glamorous look.

Evening make up


When evening calls for a glamourous look, you want to focus on making your eyes amazing. Here are eight simple steps to making up your eyes for evening.

eveningmakeup
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 10 minutes

Here’s How:

1. Prep your eyes with concealer Concealer can be used to cover up undereye circles or just the bluish discoloration just under your inner eye. To cover dark undereye circles, apply three dots of concealer under each eye. Start at the inner corner where skin tends to be darkest, then under the pupil and the third on the outer edge. Pat, never rub with your ring finger (this finger tends to have the softest pad) until it disappears.

2. Apply eye base to your lid Eye base is the secret to keeping your shadow in place for hours. Without properly priming your lid first, your eyeshadow will likely end up a greasy line in your crease.

How To Make Eyes Look Larger


Q: How can I make my small eyes seem bigger?

make-up

A: Cincinnati-based makeup artist Jeni Lee suggests you try these makeup-application steps to help make your eyes pop.

1. Apply a matte nude shadow over the entire lid. Try: MAC eye shadow in Orb.

2. Lightly line the upper and lower lids from the inner corner to the outer corner with a soft brown or taupe eye liner. Apply the eyeliner a little heavier on the outside corners. Try: Naturistics Eye Stixx in Sable.

3. Apply another shadow a shade or two darker than the nude (we like Garden Botanika eye shadow in Kava) to your crease and use your finger to blend the color up toward your eyebrow.

4. Finish the look with two coats of black mascara. Try: Estée Lauder Futurist Lash-Extending Mascara.

Make Thin Lips Appear Fuller


You look in the mirror and you know something just doesn’t look right. It is an unfortunate fate for a pretty girl, but you may suffer from thin lips. Although at times this may seem tragic, in reality thin lips can look fuller with a little lip liner and some practice.

Step 1

Erase your existing lip lines by covering with a thin layer of foundation or concealer. This should be the same shade you use on the rest of your face.

Step2

Draw a line using lip liner slightly above your natural top lip and along your bottom lip.

Step3

Color in your entire lip with the lip liner, staying within the new outline you drew.

Step4

Apply lipstick over the lip liner, working from the center of your lip out.

Step5

Apply lip gloss to the center of your top and bottom lip.

Step6

Admire your new full lips.

5 Things About Beauty for 2009


The 2009 fashion season is upon us and the time has come to pass the torch of 2008 onto the next beauty leaders.

We have seen makeup trends come and go but this year women will hear nothing more about how they have to wear tons of foundation and enough eyeliner to resemble a linebacker. No sir, au natural is here and that is how it looks to stay for the entire 2009 year.

Foundation: There was once a time when foundation was meant to cover the blemishes and spots on the face. Today, ladies, there is a shift in focus. This spring, skin is in and women are facing a huge challenge. Instead of covering up that face with a thick foundation, you need to treat the skin and make it healthier so it glows all on its own. Sure, foundations are still going to be around, but the shades are light and the coverage minimal as women embrace their natural beauty.

Mascara: In 2009 you will need half the mascara you used in 2008. Ladies on the runway are donning upper lid mascara only. When mascara is applied to the upper lashes it opens the eyes and embraces, again, the natural coloring of the eye. No sticky clumps, not heavy coverage, just a very light liquid mascara to add a dramatic flair to those baby blues, or browns, or greens or…

Eyeshadow: Nix the shadow ladies. Well, maybe not all together. Eye shadow this spring will be minimal at best. The colors will only accentuate the natural lid coloring and maybe lighten near the brow just a bit. No more and no less. Even though I keep repeating it, natural is in.

Blush: Blush is 100% out. There is nothing going on those cheekbones aside from a bit of soft rose hues. The coloring on the cheeks this spring will not come from a powder or cream, but from a rose tinted foundation. When added to the cheeks in a triangle pattern, the natural flush to accentuate the bony structure just works.

Hair: The hair this year will be boasting a side part and a side swept look. Every model in the runway thus far has given off a natural glow all the way down to the coloring. Where once the runway was all about defying gravity, today it is about being you and that is just how the ladies like it.

Beau Nelson, Creative Director of Beauté Cosmetics, takes on Smokey Eyes and shows how easy it can be to achieve that smouldering look. Don’t be afraid to tackle this challenge. As Beau shows in Part III of his Essential Make-up Tips Series, it can be done in just five minutes. What surprised me was learning that you don’t have to be too neat when applying the make-up.
