Makeup is to enhance not change

 I truly believe that make up is meant to enhance our features not to change what we don’t like. So here are some tips on how to enhance different parts of your face based on what you want everyone to focus on. Enjoy! 

 
 

1. Eyes: 

If you love your eyes or feel like your eyes are what you want to enhance then find colors that make your eyes pop. For my blue eyes, browns and pinks make my eyes stand up. Here is a chart you can look out to find colors to help find the right color to make your eyes pop.

2. Lips: 

For people who have really full and beautiful lips go with a bold lip color. Use makeup to your advantage by having it be what people first notice. Reds and dark pinks are great colors that will highlight your lips but not come across as over the top.  image-1

 
 

3. Eye lashes: 

Use a curler! This is key for helping your eyelashes really stand out. By curling your lashes will allow them to show off their length and volume. Use the graphic below to make the most of your eyelash curler.

4. Bone structure: 

Contour. Contour. Contour. By creating shadows under your bone structure will pull in your face and slim. It will also show off your natural bone structure. You will have to take into consideration the shape of face.

So by figuring out what you want to highlight or what you love about yourself will then set the foundation for your makeup routine. It will simplify your make up routine as well.I hope these tips give you an extra boost of confidence on how to do your makeup. 

LipSense. What is all the hype about?

So many of you may have heard about a product called LipSense. It has claimed to be long lasting, waterproof, and smudgeproof. Does it really live up to all the hype? What is the truth?

 

I have had the opportunity to try LipSense for myself and I have got to say.. I LOVE IT!. It really does last so much longer than any of my other lipsticks. I have a little boy who loves my kisses and it doesn’t come off on him. ALso my husband wouldn’t let me kiss him if i was wearing lipstick before this. So two major pros in my book.

 

Here are some pros and cons I have found.

 

 

Pros: Longlasting. I have had it last up to 12+ hours.

It is light so I forget that I am wearing it.

There are over 70 colors. So many different options for each individual to find what is perfect for them.

It is moisturizing. My lips can get so dry sometimes but the glossy gloss has made my lips feel great. Sometimes I will wear the gloss by itself.

One bottle can last 4-6  months.

Animal cruelty free.

 

 

Cons: The price upfront is a little more that I would normally pay. I know it lasts a long time but  sometimes the budget doesn’t take into account long term.

Initial investment is pricey. Because LipSense works differently it needs the gloss and the color and the remover. So starting out its $55. But you do just have to buy colors after that.

It is a learning curve on how to apply it appropriately. Because you can’t just wipe away if you mess up, it takes a little bit to learn how to apply.

 

 

So overall I would highly recommend getting LipSense especially if you love lipstick.

Top 3 beauty hacks

Hello my fellow beauties! I’m Bianca, Beauty Blogger & author of http://www.beautybybiancablogs.com. I can’t wait to share with you my all time favorite beauty hacks. For those of you who don’t know, a beauty hack is a tool or trick that is meant to make your beauty routine easier/more efficient. I chose my 3 go-to beauty hacks to share with you! Let’s get into it. Shall we?

1.) Make your perfume last longer

I love perfume. Who doesn’t love to smell good? Well, before I picked up on this beauty hack I used to spray   it everywhereeeee … just so it would last! I’d even spray it in the air and walk into it . I actually have 2 hacks to make the smell last longer, without being as extra as I was.

Don’t put perfume on your dry skin. IMG_0233
Make sure you moisturize FIRST. If you aren’t showering before the perfume (we all get busy, we understand) then be sure to moisturize your neck, wrist, belly (if exposed),arms, ankles and behind your knees (again.. if exposed). The moisture will lock the scent in, making it last longer!

Target these areas when spraying your skin
Your “pulse points” are the warmest areas of your body. This will not only lock the scent, but will make sure the scent of your choice is diffused across your entire body. Note: You don’t have to hit EVERY single target spot discussed. The pulse points are as follows: wrists, neck, inside elbows, belly, behind knees, and ankles.

2.) Glittery Winged Liner

IMG_0234The best thing about this beauty hack is that it can give your quick & easy everyday makeup some flavor. You can even use it for dramatic looks. It’s all based on your preference. All you need is a shimmery shadow of your choice (you can even do this with Metallic shadows), an angled liner brush & some setting spray; even MAC Fix + will do.

This is an easy one. Start by taking your brush and spraying it with the setting spray. Make sure its nice and moist. You then, dip the brush in the shadow of your choice and create a wing as if you were using a gel or cream eyeliner. That’s it! In those simple steps, you’ve made your look original and fun. Best part: it was easy!

3.) Say NO To Frizz

Don’t you hate when you’re trying to detangle and smooth outIMG_0235 your hair, but you end up looking frizzy and your hair is up in the air like gravity is against you? We’ve got a solution for that. All you need is a dryer sheet (I’d go with non-scented if your not into floral fragrances) and your brush!

Simply push the sheet through the bristles to attach it to the brush. When you brush your hair, the hair will rub against the dryer sheet. This will prevent static and frizz from happening, and will leave your hair as smooth as silk.

 

 

 

These are just some of my favorite beauty hacks that I think we all can benefit from! For more things beauty, you can check out my blog at http://www.beautybybiancablogs.com . Be sure to subscribe! Have a good one my beauties!

What this blog is about

So I just wanted to take a minute and explain how this blog came about and what its purpose is. I thought it would be a simple task to write, but it has turned out to be much harder.

The building in the picture is how I compare myself . It’s a great building but was torn down to serve a better purpose. It is being rebuilt to help others in a better way. I feel like that is me and this blog.

The past couple of years, and more like the most couple of months have been a roller coaster. I moved to a new city where no one really knows me. I lost my father to cancer and have had a hard time understanding. I lost my job due to the family situation. I slowly started to forget that there was so much beauty in the world. I spent too much time focusing on what I had lost and what I was lacking rather than what I still had. I have felt that I have a better purpose a head of me. It all turned around when I went and saw the move The Shack ( highly recommend it!!). In the movie , there is a quote “You were so focused on your tragedy, you lost sight of me.” It hit me, I had lost sight of the beauty of life.

So I wanted to change that and thats how this blog came about. I want it to be a place to share the beauties of the world. It could be tips to help us feel better, or places that bring beauty into our lives. It might be a product that really helped me or someone else feel beautiful. That’s what it’s about. I want ( and each of us) to find the beauty in this world,because there is so much of it. So follow along on my Instagram @find. the.beauty_ and follow the blog. Message me if you want something specific.

 

Thanks for reading 🙂
