Makeup : OLDER versus YOUNGER (3)

Hiya Poutlings! 🙂

How was your Christmas? Did you have an awesome day? I hope your Boxing Day is even more awesome too!

In theme with the missfitz: older vs younger makeup here is todays tip!

EYELINER

|BLACK SOFT EYELINER MAKES THE EYES LOOK OLDER|

As we live in the time of the “smokey eye”, everyone adores intense lining of the inner corner of the eyelid with black pencil. This technique certainly looks impressive, but it makes the eyes look older and it can emphasize eye redness, as is the case with Milla Jovovich.

|LIGHT SOFT EYELINER FOR YOUNGER LOOKING EYES|

Shining kajal pencil, in contrast makes the eyes appear “whiter”, underlines the eye and enhances its brightness for this effect, with a well blended darker pencil on the bottom to really open up the eye and give a real bright eye effect, we can follow the example of Jennifer Aniston. missfitz secret tip: I’m not a huge fan of using white for the tear line, it works but I prefer to use a silver pencil and blend it with a brown/black underneath on the lower lash line. I’m a sucker for sparkles and well, its easier to blend it looks more awesome than using a white pencil. Note: its for a night time look only and may make you look like you are crying during the day!

Makeup : OLDER versus YOUNGER (2)

Hiya Pouters!

So, is layering on your makeup a good idea or a bad idea? Depends on what look you’re going for!! MissFitz OLDER VERSUS YOUNGER tip for today is…

FOUNDATION

|THICK FOUNDATION MAKES YOU LOOK OLDER|

Celebrity makeup artists are convinced that when you apply think layers of foundation to your face like a mask means you’ll be granting yourself with 15 more years of age. What happens is that the foundation is rammed into wrinkles and emphasizes them strongly. It will turn your face into a lifeless mask, as is the case with Kim Kardashian.

Its very well, if you have completely wrinkleless skin, or if you are in front of the camera a lot but for everyday wear its not reccommended to layer the foundation on, even though I love a thick heavy coverage foundation… It’s a Jersey thing… bwahaha! 😉

|LIGHT FOUNDATION MAKES YOU LOOK YOUNGER|

If you want to look young, discard thick foundations in favour of light, hydrating fluids. Using either a foundation brush or your fingers (as long as you are applying it yourself…) but if you have a very dry skin make sure to mix a moisturiser in with the foundation before applying it, as Sharon Stone does.

Hope it helps! **missfitzzz

Don’t Always Believe What You See!

Hiya Poutlings!

In Hollywood, nothing is ever as it seems. We really do expect a certain amount of glitz and glamour from the celebrities prancing around on the catwalk and people seem to get sucked into the illusion. Tales of plastic versus natural are a constantly in the media and even some of the most resistant celebrities fall prey to the look of perfection, determined by the top plastic surgeons.

PARIS HILTON

Poor old Paris, she rose to fame through a sex video leak, reality shows, and just being famous because she is famous. She has gone through numerous transformations, some noticable, others not so. While its obvious she over dyes her hair to get her signature blonde bombshell look, what isn’t well known is that she was born with brown eyes.

Photographs from her childhood up to her early teens show her looking more natural with brown eyes, seen in the picture of her holding a tea cup chihuaha. However, photographs of her now she always seems to be wearing blue contacts.

Her eyes are not the only things that have undergone a change. Recent photographs of her show her lips looking heavily and I would imagine painfully, collagen-injected, and of course there are plenty of rumours that she had added breast implants to her appearance… who cares about breast implants??

MADONNA

Mags, seen in a split screen image before and after photo retouching (above right) proves that diet and exercise are more than what is needed to keep a youthful appearance. Wearing a lace covered hat Madonna seems to have also had work on her cheeks.

A close up of Madonna (bottom right) shows what her skin looks like with the effects of aging. Seen leaving the gym (bottom left), shows how difficult it is for her to maintain her appearance, with veins showing on her arms and her arms looking very muscular lets us all assume that she devotes hours at the gym to keep her physique and a youthful exterior.

FERGIE

 

Stacey Ferguson has been in the spot light since she was a child star. This split shot (above left) shows her with curly hair before her Hollywood transformation began. Her nose appears wider and her eye shape is distinctly different. Dressed in a cheerleading uniform, a young Fergie had completely different features considering the difference in her appearance. The media suspects that she has got an eye lift as well as breast implants… WHO CARES ABOUT THE BREAST IMPLANTS? ITS HOLLYWOOD!!

BEYONCE

Despite her terrible music, no one can deny her beautiful looks and even with those it looks like she’s had some help from a knife. Years ago, Beyonce was wearing a gold outfit on stage with girl band, Destiny’s Child, and she had a natural bustline. However a more recent picture of Beyonce wearing a floor length gold dress suggests she’s had implantsWHO THE FECK CARES?? But anyway, they give her already curvy figure – even more curves!!

I do in a way feel sorry for these women, in the star light. They have immense pressure on them day in and day out to look their best and its no wonder they generally go to such extreme measures to ensure that they in fact do look gorgeous… Sometimes too much? Yes.

It doesn’t help women who read/watch the media and constantly compare themselves to these starlets – a lot of womens self esteem rests upon what their favourite star looks like/how much weight they’ve lost/what plastic surgery they’ve had and unfortunately that is not reality for the real women. By all means – LOOK AFTER YOURSELF but do not weigh your self esteem on these people, they are as Sandylashxx has previously mentioned there are inspirations versus aspirations!

love yourself! missfitz orders! 😉

Makeup : OLDER versus YOUNGER (1)

Hiya Poutlings!

Makeup… is what this blog started about… and here is something for you all to fiest your beautiful pouts on! Makeup is a real life time machine, and any professional makeup artist will be able to tell you, that when it is properly applied it can make you look significantly younger! But not everyone realises that the techniques they use to apply their own makeup may be making them look a different age completely…

MissFitz aims to inform you here on some of my very own pro tips on how to achieve a look you are going for! This is my first post of a series on older versus younger. Ready? Lets go!

ROUGE

|DARK ROUGE SHADES ON CHEEK BONES MAKE YOU LOOK OLDER|

Pronounced cheek bones make the face more refined, but alas they make it look older. Think of Marlene Dietrich. Even in her youth, her photographs made her look very grown up. If you need to look older for some reason, darken the cheek bone hollows with a brown-ish rouge, as Victoria Beckham does.

|FRESH ROUGE SHADE APPLIED ON CHEEKBONES MAKES YOU LOOK YOUNGER|

A young face always shines with a bright blush. Choose refreshing rouge shades (pink or peach). Makeup artist to the stars Sue Devitt advises to apply rouge high on the apple of the cheek bones and then rub a drop of clear lip gloss over the top of it. This technique is worn by Sarah Jessica Parker often.

Have an awesome day pouters – let me know if this tip helped!
