How to rock white eyeliner

Monday, August 30th, 2010

How to rock white eyelinerThere are certain looks that, cool as they appear, are seemingly impossible to pull off, and white eyeliner has long been one of those trends. While a light-colored streak may open your eyes and brighten your face, an incorrect application can result in a futuristic-looking mess.

However, all is not lost for those aching to rock white-lined lids, thanks to expert advice from trendy blog Cee Me. While achieving flawless white-lined eyes is doable, you’ll need more than just an eye pencil to do the trick.

According to the news source, you can start by drawing a stripe of white eyeliner across your upper lash line. Next, set the liner by layering a streak of white eyeshadow on top of the pencil.

To add definition to your eyes, the news provider recommends using a black eyeliner to draw a very thin stripe on your top waterline, and finishing with black mascara on top lashes only.

Selecting the perfect formula for this simple but bold look can be easy with Jane Iredale products. The brand’s Eye Pencil is available in both White and Basic Black, and PurePressed Eye Shadow in White is a long-lasting powder that can be applied wet for fuller coverage.

Use Jane Iredale makeup to achieve a two-toned look

Use Jane Iredale makeup to achieve a two-toned lookWhile women often apply one shade of each type of makeup – a single color of blush and one tube of lipstick – those who want to add an extra bit of pizazz to their look may want to consider wearing two-toned makeup.

Instead of reaching for a bronzer or a blush, why not wear both? “The bronzer brings out cheekbones and makes the face more three-dimensional[and] the blush gives a glow,” makeup artist Benjamin Puckey told

Puckey suggests applying a bronzer to the sides of the face in a ‘three’ shape, from the temple to the upper cheekbone to the jawline, and layering a cream blush along the apples of the cheek.

A two-tone application can also add definition to lips and create a fuller-looking pout. The makeup artist recommends brushing on a deep-hued lip color along the lip line and blending it toward the center. Then, brush a paler shade into the middle of the lips.

“The key is to use two shades in the same color family,” he added. “They should gradually fade into each other for an ombré effect.”

Jane Iredale offers a large amount of products perfectly suited for two-toned makeup. Women can layer the In Touch Cream Blush Stick over the Brush-Me Bronze Bronzing Powder, and can choose two shades from a large range of PureMoist LipColour.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19931954-ADNFCR

Mimic Lea Michele’s wide-eyed look with Jane Iredale eye shadow

Mimic Lea Michele's wide-eyed look with Jane Iredale eye shadowFrom her perfectly coiffed hair to her impeccably lined lips, Lea Michele often looks flawless when she steps out on the red carpet. And it seems that the brunette beauty has figured out a few ways to emphasize one of her best features – her dazzling brown eyes.

While her eyes are naturally big and bright, Glamour.come reports that Michele regularly plays up her peepers by applying a bit of extra gold-colored eyeshadow to the inside corners of her eyes. This small dusting of powder adds a subtle sparkle to her wide-eyed stare.

To make her lashes look fuller, the website states that the Glee starlet employs one more trick – extending her liner past the edge of her upper lash line, to mimic the curve of her lashes. While it isn’t quite a cat-eye, the line has a widening and romantic effect that makes her lashes seem a bit thicker.

Women who want to steal Michele’s eye-opening techniques should invest in the proper products, like Jane Iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow in Glimmer Gold and Smoky Grey. Apply the gold shimmer with a dry brush to eyes’ inside corners, and use a damp liner brush to draw a thin stripe of grey shadow along the upper lash line.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19922545-ADNFCR

The makeup artist from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse spills the secrets to achieving Bella’s glow

The makeup artist from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse spills the secrets to achieving Bella's glowAs ladies across the country flock to theaters to watch Bella and Edward continue their epic romance in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, more than a few will leave wondering how they can recreate Bella’s impeccable makeup. According to Robin Matthews, Kristen Stewart’s personal makeup artist for the film, replicating the look isn’t too difficult.

Much of the cast is known for their frighteningly pale complexions, so Matthews wanted to bring a bit of color to Stewart’s skin. “Kristen’s character had to stand out against all the pale vampires, so I used warm tones on her face – nothing blue-based,” Mathews told Allure. “And because her skin is so fair, I applied a foundation that was half a shade warmer.”

Since Bella’s character is happier in this film than the previous two, Matthews dusted Stewart’s face with a loose powder that featured a hint of shimmer, as a finishing touch.

Women eager to glow like Bella can easily mimic her look by using the right products. Jane Iredale‘s PurePressed Base SPF 20, a mineral-based powder, offers silky, natural-looking coverage and is extremely easy to apply. Complete the look with Jane Iredale’s Sunbeam Quad Bronzer to add a subtle wash of shimmer.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19872681-ADNFCR
