Adding a bit of glitter onto your eyes can instantly glam up any look and as promised, here are a few ways you can wear glitter on the eye area:
1. On The Eyelid
To use loose glitter as an eyeshadow, you will first need to apply a cream eyeshadow as a base so the glitter has something to stick onto. Next, wet an eyeshadow brush with MAC Water Base Mixing Medium and dip into the glitter. Press or pat the glitter onto your eyelid until you have achieved the look you want. Never try to blend or the glitter will fall off. Finish with liner and mascara. Clean up any fallouts with a fan brush or scotch tape.
So you have recently dyed your hair and your eyebrows are now a totally different color! *gasp* Before you start freaking out, take a look at British it model Agyness Deyn and singer Gwen Stefani. With their light blonde hair and significantly darker eyebrows, they are living proof that you don’t have to match your eyebrows to your hair color completely to look cool. The key is to make sure your eyebrows are a shade or two darker than your hair color. An exact match would look too matchy-matchy and fake.
Young stars Hayden Panettiere and Kristen Bell wowed everyone at the 2008 ESPY Award earlier this Wednesday. Their secret other than their good looks? Matching makeup to their outfits accordingly.

As promised, I will be doing a series of Bridal Makeup Looks from different cultures and first, I am going to start off with my hometown – Hong Kong.
Hong Kong brides like to keep the look natural and light, especially during the day.
The look is very soft and feminine and you will rarely see any dark smoky colors or harsh lines on the eyes. Instead, a lot of soft, shimmery pastels are used. Some colors to really bring out brown eyes are pink, lavender, minty green, light blue and silver. A long-lasting eyeliner, an eyelash curler and a waterproof mascara are a must. You can also use false lashes for the day but remember to pick a pair that lengthens without being too over the top. Lining your lower lashes with an off-white/beige pencil will also make your eyes pop.
To create a healthy flush as spotted on Janice Man on the left, try colors like baby pink and soft peaches. Smile big and apply directly onto the apples to create a cute doll look.
When choosing a lip color, you can never go wrong with a medium pink or peach.
Celebrity hairstylist and founder of Kronos Hair products, Dusty Simington, has a rather interesting beauty philosophy that reminds me of a saying by Helena Rubinstein – “There are no ugly women, only lazy ones.” Dusty believes that “With all that information and technology out there, no one can look bad. People who do are simply stupid.” While some people might find that harsh, I think there is some truth to it.
I met Dusty at the Total Beauty Blog Summit 2008 where he gave us a brief introduction on his upcoming line of hair products and a few pointers for fall hair trends. I also pulled him aside for a quick interview just for you guys!
