Help! My eyelashes are
growing down instead of curling up. I tried an eyelash curler and
curling mascara, but they just won't cooperate. What can I do?
solution is still the eyelash
curler. You will need to crimp the eyelash at the very base,
then crimp again in the middle and finally crimp a third time at the
tip of your eyelashes. It's similar to having a cowlick and forcing
your hair a certain way with hair spray and a curling iron. Use mascara
first to act as your "hairspray", then use the eyelash curler. You
will need to train your lashes, just like you train hair, so you will
need to do this to your lashes often, probably everyday, until they
"learn" to behave.
I would like some step-by-step
instructions to putting on black makeup to get smoky dark eyes. I
have tried over and over again and it always just looks dirty and
smudged, never exotic. Thanks a lot.
throw away the black eye shadow.. The smoky look is done with shades
of grey or charcoal or in blues or berries/purple and violet shades.
You can keep your black eye liner and black mascara. For the evening
you can darken with deeper blues, black (but not if you have a light
skin tone) and grays, coupled with false eyelashes for added drama.
Now to get the look follow these steps:
Line top and bottom lashes with cranberry, green or black depending
on your eye color.
Step 2. Smudge and blend the line so the color smoothly transitions
from the lashes.
Step 3. Layer an eye shadow of a contrasting or coordinating shade
on top of the liner, blending up and out at the outer corner of the
eye. (This part is tricky and if not done right will result in that
dirty smudged look you hate). I suggest you look for a liner brush
or a Q-tip to help you.
Step 4. Add a second layer of eye shadow in a lighter shade at the
crease of the eye and blend up toward the eyebrow. Trend upward with
the color and at an angle at the outer corner of your eye, like "Cat
eyes" without as much drama.
Step 5. Add your Mascara for the final touch.

to find an eyeliner color that is less noticeable. Pick a color that
blends better with your skin tone. It is probably best that you stay
away from black, dark brown, and brown. It would be better if you
found grey, white, blue or light
brown eyeliner. I also suggest that you use either a Q-tip
or an eyeliner brush to blend the color so it isn't a harsh line around
your eye. Another technique to make your eyes appear smaller is to
place the eyeliner across the entire lid as close to the eyelash as
possible on both the upper and lower lash. If this still doesn't work,
try placing the liner on the inner portion of your lower lash-always
blend the color to avoid the harsh look that you dislike.
What color eye shadow would
suit blue grey eyes?
with any accent color such as grey, are best featured using the brown
eye shadow family. This includes khaki, light brown, taupe, and some
orange tones. I recommend you try Marron

Could you please tell me
how to tint black eye brows and lashes in to brown color, can I bleach
first then dye?
We do not
advise tinting or dying your eyelashes or eyebrows at home. Tinting
is a job only to be attempted by a reputable professional using approved
dyes. You can have your brows colored to match your hair for approximately
$15 and your eyelashes about $25.00.

I've been on steroids for
eczema and my eyebrows have all fallen out and look colorless. My
eyebrows are naturally black but for some reason the color keeps fading
visit the doctor who prescribed the steroids for you. You should only
take steroids for a short time to treat a severe outbreak of eczema.
There are new medications out now for eczema that perhaps you can
try. They are called topical immunomodulators, or TIMS. These steroid-free
treatments are effective in treating eczema without the side effects
found with using corticosteroids. Once you go off the steroids, your
eyebrows should return to normal. In the meantime, you can try shading
your eyebrows in a color a little lighter than your hair color.
HI! I have light colored
skin. I have blonde hair and blue eyes. I`m 15, and I don`t really
know how to put on most makeup. I would like to know what makeup would
look best on me, and how I should put it on. One more thing, what
would be some simple things to put on daily, such as mascara and so
on. Thank you so much!
some good basic makeup tips that you should read.
I have blond hair and blue
eyes. If I wear violet and lavender eyeshadow what color eye liner
should I use and how should I wear it? Should I put it on both the
top and bottom of my eyes or only the bottom?
wear a charcoal grey eyeliner. Putting eyeliner on the bottom lid
is a personal preference and if it looks good, then do it. When you
apply eyeliner to the bottom lid, follow this tip: eyeliner on the
bottom rim should only be applied 1/2 way from the middle towards
the nose because allowing the upper and lower corners to meet makes
the eyes look smaller. Colosé
Why do makeup experts always
say not to wear eyeliner on the bottom lid? I always wear it and i
think it looks really good and doesn`t look too heavy at all. I feel
like I shouldn`t wear it when I read this but i don`t look good without
eyeliner on my bottom lid....it`s like my eyes dissapear into my head
without it....my eyes are very big and blue and I have naturally black
hair....is this a good combination for black eyeliner? I think I look
ugly with eyeliner on my top lid but not my bottom lid...eyeliner
on the bottom lid seems to make all the difference for me...I could
not wear any other makeup and still look quite nice.
It is not
true that makeup experts always say not to wear eyeliner on the bottom
lid. If it looks good then by all means wear it. A lot of experts
do agree though that eyeliner on the bottom rim should only be applied
1/2 way from the middle towards the nose because allowing the upper
and lower corners to meet makes the eyes look smaller. Yes with your
dark hair black eyeliner is a good color for you but you can also
experiment with some other colors that go well with your eyeshadow
and blue eye color.
I bought my mascara about
5 weeks ago and it has already started to dry up. Can I add water
or oil to it?
one advice: Change Brands! Choose a mascara that has a thin brush,
which means that the opening to the tube will be small and less air
will get in. When air enters the tube, it dries out the mascara. Avoid
pumping the mascara wand too vigorously during use. This allows air
to get into the tube. Add one drop of water to the tube of dry mascara
if necessary. It's not a great idea, but in an emergency, you will
be able to get more out of the tube by using this trick.
