Create Smokey Eyes like Jack Sparrow

jacksparroweyemakeup

1 Wash your hands thoroughly with soap before you start

2 Apply a good base with something specifically designed as an eye base or any regular concealer.

3 Apply in a patting motion with your ring finger across eyelid, in the inside corner, and even a little bit underneath.

Use soft and somewhat powdery kohl eyeliner or black eyeliner to start with.

5 Lift just under your eyebrow with your finger to smooth out your upper lid.

6 Starting at the inside corner of one eye; draw a medium sized line along your lash line.

Do the same on the other side.

 Place the finger from your non-drawing hand in the center directly under your eye.

9 Very gently pull that finger down just slightly… just enough to see that inner rim or water line.

10 Draw another line just along that lower lash line.

11  With your angle brush, apply a little shadow just above that line on your upper eyelid.

12 Do the same underneath your eyes, brushing the shadow down a little further.

13 For Pirate Jack, you are going to blend old school with your fingers.

14  Using that ring finger again smudge out that upper eyeliner, blending it all over your eyelid.

15 With that same kohl-y finger, gently rub under your eyes, from the inside out and in something of a half-circle

16 To finish, dust a little bit of a colorless translucent powder to set your fabulous eyes.

DIY : Studded Nails!

1: Start off with a base colour. Apply two coats and wait for it to dry fully.

2 : You will need Metal Studs and a tweezers to place them onto the nails. ”You can  buy a wheel of 1200 different coloured metal studs on eBay for just £3.99!”

Usually I’d advise you to use a fast drying topcoat, but for the purpose of this project, it helps to use a longer drying topcoat. Do a coat of clear topcoat , this will act as ‘glue’, and then begin stick your studs onto the nail with tweezers.

And here’s  the final look! You can re-use the studs, too, if you remove them carefully!

8 Super-Easy Steps for Looking Flawless—Fast!

Step 1: Hide Dark Circles

0414-01-flawless-skin-plan_at

The first step of all: Apply a moisturizer with SPF to help concealer glide on smoothly.
Then use concealer only where you need it, like on under eye circles and blemishes,
Try a creamy formula like ”Laura Mercier Secret Concealer” in a shade that matches your skin tone. “Choosing a shade lighter is a myth.“Too-white circles under your eyes look like you wore goggles while tanning.” Apply in little stripes with a pointed concealer brush. Then blend using your ring finger for the lightest touch, and don’t tug on delicate under eye areas

”Expert tip: To get at fine lines, use the point of your brush.”

Step 2: A Touch of Base

To get perfectly even skin the speedy way, use a foundation stick.
It’s easy and gives you plenty precise application. like Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick . Using the stick like a giant marker, draw thick lines down cheekbones, the sides of your nose and above brows, and blend with your fingers. Want to look a little more sun-kissed? Before blending, use a second stick that’s two or three shades darker in all the same places for a streak-free glow (it looks dark in the pictures, but  it melts right in). Mix both colors together over your face and down onto your neck using your fingers—the heat from your hands will warm up the foundation and help it glide.

”Expert tip: Want lighter coverage? Rub moisturizer on your hands before you blend for a sheer, dewy finish.”

Step 3: Reassess and Perfect!

If a pesky zit or mark is still poking through, go back and hide it with an extra layer of concealer. 
Use the same kind as in step one (it worked for Alice’s forehead scratch), or try a cover-up that contains salicylic acid, like Almay Clear Complexion Concealer, which helps shrink blemishes while it camouflages. Dab it onto problem areas with a pointed brush instead of slicking it on from the tube. Right on top of the blemish, “it’s not meant to be totally blended in, but to avoid cakeyness, use your ring finger to pat its perimeter outward until smooth.

”Expert tip: For staying power, apply powder over top with a puff to absorb oil and to keep cover-up from sliding off midday.”

Step 4: Now Blush!0414-04-flawless-skin-plan_at

Forget shading and sculpting cheekbones with a brush and powder, and try a cream blush instead for that glow-from-within effect. 
Apply to the apples of your cheeks, as seen here. (The fast way to find yours: Smile!) Then blend the color up toward your temples with your fingers. Our pick: (Yves Saint Laurent Creme de Blush in No. 6 Rouge Passion. Bright, bold hues like the berry shade used on our model can look natural, but if you’re color-shy, build the intensity by gradually layering it on.

”Expert tip: Gone overboard? Defuse a clownlike situation by applying a bit of foundation over top instead of washing it all off and starting from scratch.”

Step 5: Apply Shimmery Eye Base

For pro-looking eye makeup in no time, apply a wash of sheer, shimmery cream shadow from lash lines to brow bones using your pointer finger. 
Try Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow in Copper Canyon, which comes with all the shades you need to create this look. (Bonus: Shimmer helps hide stray eyebrow hairs if you don’t have time to tweeze!) If your skin is fair like  model’s, try a silvery white shade. For medium to dark skin tones, opt for a champagne color instead. To get an extra bright-eyed effect, dot the color onto the inner corners of your eyes too. Celebs use this trick on the red carpet all the time,

”Expert tip: If your lids tend to be on the oilier side, use a primer all over them first to help shadow last.”

Step 6: Make ‘Em Pop

Next, use bronze and gold cream shadows (both are in that same Revlon palette) to give eyes more depth. 
Apply the bronze shade in your creases with a flat shadow brush for more control, and use your fingers to smudge it down over the lids—avoiding the brow bones. There shouldn’t be any harsh lines or stripes of color, \ it should look blended and effortless. To make everything budge-proof (important with creamy formulas like these), set the cream with a matching powder eye shadow, or dust a colorless translucent powder on top (like the kind used in step three). Then, to make eyes look even bigger, pat some gold cream shadow onto the centers of your lids and run a little along your lower lash lines with your finger or a small brush.

”Expert tip: Using gold under eyes looks luminous; darker shades can draw attention to undereye circles.”

Step 7: Add Some Definition

0414-07-flawless-skin-plan_at

For more intensity, rim your upper lash lines with a brown liner pencil and smudge it upward with your shadow brush. 
Then set with the same powder eyeshadow used in the previous step. Finish off with two coats of mascara, like Smashbox Hyperlash Mascara, on top and bottom—focusing on the outer lashes with the top of the wand. If your brows aren’t as full as this model’s, lightly fill in any gaps with a pencil and use a disposable mascara  wand to brush the hairs up.

”Expert tip: To give eyes an even bigger boost, use an eyelash curler before you apply mascara. Start as close to the roots of your lashes as possible and gently pulse the curler forward bit by bit to the ends.”

Step 8: Get Lush-Looking Lips

0414-08-flawless-skin-plan_at

If your lips are dry or at all chapped, gently buff with a damp washcloth and apply lip balm. 
Let it sink in well, and blot with a tissue if it feels slippery. Using a strawberry-color lipstick, like Maybelline New York ColorSensational Lipstick in Very Cherry, straight from the tube, apply it to the center of your mouth (make a kissy face!), where color tends to wear off first, . Blend the lipstick out over your lips, patting the color on with your fingertip to help it last. “This gives you that fresh, just-ate-a-popsicle look,” she says. To amp up things for night, add a layer of gloss for extra shine.

”Expert tip: Run a piece of ice over your lips before slicking on gloss to help color last all day and prevent it from bleeding. Ta-da, you’re done!”
