The Rise & Fall Of The Eyebrow

The eyebrows have come a long way. The style has changed from the extremely thin vintage look to the fuller and more masculine shapes we have today. The fuller the eyebrows, the better for us girls. No one should leave the salon or the house with thin brows. If your brows cannot achieve the full look, you have to make them. The new full brow look reflects gender equality for those of you who do not already know.

Have a look at the pictures showing off the various eyebrow style for each era.

Rihanna is in the news again today. This time her new perfume ad is the cause of it. The poster above has been restricted to places where children are unlikely to see it in the UK. The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has found this image of Rihanna “sexually suggestive”; her facial expression, legs in the air on the bottle and outfit have been deemed sexually suggestive.

Making Up Your Cheeks

A hint of colour on your cheeks gives your face a healthy, natural look. This is where the blush and bronzers come in. There are different types in the market today but it is best to go for the one in the same texture as your foundation.

Powder Blush

Powder blush is usually long-lasting, it also works well on all skin types. Always apply the powder blush with a blush brush. Natural tones are best but go for bright blush if you have a dark skin. I recommend this Chanel Joues Contraste blush.

Cream Blush

Cream blush is great for those with a dry skin, it is also quite quick and easy to apply. The best part of the cream blush is that you can use it without wearing a foundation, just apply a primer or moisturizer first. I recommend this Revlon cream brush.

Bronzer

Bronzers look fantastic on darker skin tones. You can apply a bronzer with a powder blush. I recommend this Clinique bronzer.

Iridescent Highlighter

Iridescent highlighters should be used with blushes or bronzers to balance the effect. They usually draw attention to the eye. They can be in form of powder, cream or liquid. I recommend this MAC Iridescent Highlighter.
