Want to kill two birds with one stone? Makeup artist Wayne Goss routinely shares makeup tips and reviews on his gossmakeupartist vlog and sometimes they come with a twist. This time he shares an ultra cool makeup tip that anyone can do with makeup essentials EVERYONE already has on hand; eyelash curlers and an eyeliner pencil. It’s not a technique the makeup guru uses himself, but it is a cool and amusing way to apply eye makeup, and it breaks the monotony.
The clever makeup guru shows his followers how to curl eyelashes and apply eyeliner at the same time. This particular piece of advice is humorous to me because although I previously stated that eyelash curlers and an eyeliner pencil are makeup staples, but I do not own an eyelash curler. My lashes are so curly they almost spiral… I’m not kidding.
As you can see, this man is amazing, and I love the way he explains everything from makeup application to his philosophy on life. His natural ability to inspire creativity and resonate with the masses is one of many reasons he is so popular. For even more reasons to become a follower, visit his site and get to know him and his love of teaching makeup techniques passionately.
Do you aspire to have cut-glass cheekbones? Just the name says it all; chiseled cheeks so high and sharp they will cut you. I don’t see a lot of blush tutorials, so when I saw this one by make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury on NET-A-PORTER, I had to share. The trick revolves around shading and contouring methods to give the illusion of higher cheekbones and added definition. Kevin Aucoin made this look relatively easy in his “Making Faces“ and “The Art of Makeup” beauty bibles. I would go out and buy one of his books and marvel at the transformations he created with all of his tools and products, then go forth with confidence that I could eventually have the same result with a little practice. Good times…
To be fair, the video vixen already has well-defined, high cheekbones so I would have loved to have seen this tutorial on a model that didn’t already look like she was sucking her cheeks in. I have high, well-defined cheekbones as well so I am of no help.
What do you think? Are you impressed with this makeup trick? If you are or if you have tried this and achieved the look you want, share the results.
We have heard of ombré hair, clothing, and nails, but ombré lips? Why didn’t any of us think of that? Well, apparently Yumemi S., a regular contributor at Beautylish, and I suspect, a talented makeup artist, judging from the exquisite contributions and tutorials she posts. These lips gave me all kinds of ideas for outfits, and as I think about it, I am heading over to Polyvore with her lips. I hope she doesn’t mind.
She isn’t the only one. Sam C., London-ish “Jackie of All Trades” has a video tutorial for ombré eyebrows. Yes, even I didn’t see that coming. Head on over to Beautylish and check out these trendsetting makeup divas before they blow our minds away.
