Black smokey eye!

¡Hola Guapas y Guapos!

One of the classics in make up land, yes the black smokey eye. And maybe also the most feared. Why? Cause a smokey eye gone wrong can look like you just got beaten and have a black eye because of that. Blending is KEY for this look (blending is always key, but especially for this look). And please don’t blend it with a silver eyeshadow, we left that ugliness behind in 2005! Try to to blend it with brown eyeshadows in your crease so the black eyeshadow will not look too hard on your face.

The way you blend everything together is also very very important. I learned this trick from a video I watched from the best aka Desi Perkins (I will post the link down below).
Keep in mind practice makes perfect. This look can be quite difficult, so don’t be afraid if it’s not perfect the first time. Play around with different shades of crease colours and master the art of blending! Let me know what you think of this look and show me your smokey eye look!

Besos, Sarai Isabel.

Dry, Combination, Sensitive? What skin type?

¡Hola Guapas y Guapos!

Do you know that feeling? You’re in the store looking for a new product to treat yourself to something good, a new face mask or that serum that you’ve been wanting for a while. And then the difficult part starts; choosing the right product for your skin type. All these skin types are being thrown at you. Dry, combination, sensitive and you’re just there like uhm I have skin? We’ve all been there. So let me break it down for you and help you out a little bit.

face_skin_types

Oily Skin: Shiny complexion and visible enlarged poress, common to blackheads & breakouts. You have the need to reapply and blot your make up during the day.

Combination Skin: Oily T-zone with normal/dry cheeks. The T-zone is sensitive to breakouts and has larger than normal pores, especially on the nose.

Normal Skin: Radiant complexion with a healty glow, hardly any imperfections and barely visible pores. The skin is not too oily and not too dry.

Dry Skin: Dull complexion with sometimes flaky skin and red patches, minimal pores visible. Skin feels tight and lines are more visible.

Sensitive Skin: Fragile skin that reacts strongly to most skincare products and gets irritated quickly. Skin appears red and dry, but it can have breakouts and red itchy blemishes.

I hope it helps you out next time!
