Basic Neutral Matte Eyeshadows

For best matte eyeshadow for mature women check out my review here.

I remember long ago when the makeup artist who gave me Ben Nye's Burns & Blisters wheel remarked the two important accomplishments in his makeup career were achieving the perfect natural eye look and makeup application on a mature woman.

The Difference Between Asian and Caucasian Eyes

I couldn't come up with a clever title as you can see. I have been putting this post off for a long time. Okay, since I began my blog, I thought maybe save it for a makeup book that I would never write. In other words, all the info would just sit in my head until a mind reader came along and extracted it.

Highlighting and Contouring

For a more in depth tutorial click here.

Highlighting and contouring is fun to do when you know what you are doing. If you don't know then the colors can just look like misplaced racing stripes on the face. I have seen many people's attempts at contouring and highlighting and sometimes I just want to shake them and tell them, "You should have just left your face alone."

To Reveal is to Conceal

I figured that it would be important to have a post on concealers and neutralizers and touch on the subject of highlighting and contouring. When I didn't understand makeup, I really didn't pay any attention to concealers. I didn't even know and cared that neutralizers existed, I just wanted to play with all the color stuff I had. In fact, my stash probably consisted of a box full of fun and one concealer! What was I thinking? Well, obviously nothing in the way of correction.

Kry Kry Kry Out for Kryolan Micro Shades

What are Kryolan Micro Shades? They are little containers of highly pigmented creamy silicone based colors made for the Hi-Def media. The stuff can be used anywhere on the face which makes it a very versatile product. So far there are 15 colors that range from neutrals to a grass green. I bought only two to try out and wished that I had bought more, but I really have way too much makeup and restricted myself.
