MAKEUP TUTORIAL: EASY WAYS TO USE A LIQUID LINER

HELLO EVERYONE, It’s Sunday again…… that’s one day I look forward to for so many reasons including posting a makeup tutorial for you our beautiful gods and goddesses……:) Training as a makeup artist like I said, was a little challenging for me. Because I had the mind set of a typical Nigerian saying to myself, “oh it’s just the application of foundation and powder and all that needs to be applied and I’m done”. I got more than I bargained for lol. I think I should do a post on my experience while training to become a makeup artist *thinking*. Anyway, back to the topic at hand……..:) most of us find using the liquid liner quite difficult especially as a beginner. I had a lot of issues myself as a beginner, My boss would make me clean off her liner and ask me to put it back on and it has to be exactly the way she wears her liner *phew*. And for every time I do it wrongly, she would make me clean it …

We are talking about the makeup trends, some were artistic to compliment the drama of the routine, some were classic with a touch of sparkle and some just left us breathless. Let’s wrap up the Olympics with a look at the makeup trends that made us want to take out our makeup set and brushes to duplicate through an image gallery. The official makeup was dabbed ‘Sports chic’, created by award-winning make-up artist and Max Factor UK ambassador Caroline Barnes, the ‘Sports Chic’ make-up look will be worn by all female volunteers, medal bearers and escorts to the athlete and presenters during the 805 victory ceremonies at the 2012 Games, where athletes are presented with their medals.

Beauty Police: Olympics 2012 Edition – Gaby Douglas

By Raspberry Blush There has been a buzz around Gaby’s hair, some have commented that she’s letting “the side” down because it’s not perfectly groomed at all times, but to be honest, I don’t care how her hair looks, she is a double A star and is an inspiration to all the girls who dare to dream and work hard to achieve those dreams. Being the first African-American to take home the gold, she is heading in the right direction. Saying that, i’m probably a bit biased and defensive exactly for all the above reasons. ¬†Especially in her field, grooming will always be noted and commented upon, no matter which country she’s representing or what her ethnic background is.
