Before you jump into the looks; here’s a little background on Maybelline and it’s evolvement over the years. Maybelline is an American makeup brand sold worldwide. The company was first established in 1915 in Chicago by the 19-year-old entrepreneur, Tom Lyle Williams, who created a product called lash-in-brow-line for giving eyelashes a darker and fuller look. Later the company was acquired by the French cosmetics company, L’Oréal, in 1996.

Beauty Monday – Revitalift Part II

For a lot of women signs of aging mostly translate to loss of firmness that is most visible on the contours and the neck. With age, the skin produces less structural fibres and their supporting framework progressively weakens. Deep and long wrinkles appear on the neck, and contours become less defined.
The Revitalift total repair range by L’Oreal Paris brings revolutionary results to combat these signs of aging and comes with a day cream, night cream and a BB cream. From the first application the skin feels immediately hydrated and comfortable. Day after day the skin is firmer and even deeper wrinkles on the neck are visibly reduced. In about 4 weeks, the skin on the neck is lifted and facial contours appear redefined.

Beauty Monday: Revitalift It Up

With age, skin regeneration can slow down by up to 50%, leading to visible signs of aging: wrinkles, loss of firmness and a dull complexion. One thing we need to keep in mind is that skin starts to exhibit signs of aging as soon as we reach twenty-four. The most effective formula to combat these signs of aging is through the Revitalift regime created by L’Oreal Paris.

Makeup School: Brow Shaping 101

Your eyebrows give balance to your eyes and are the first thing anyone notices when they look at you. Hence, brow shaping can either complement you or throw your facial features off completely. This is something that makeup expert Raana Khan gives the highest regard to in her practices.
Here are 4 points every woman can use to maintain a shape that’s personal and perfect for them.

1. Locate Your Starting Points
Flip your tweezer upside down so the open end is pointing downward, and place it vertically alongside the outer edge of the bottom of your nose. The point where the vertex lands marks the beginning of your brow (which should also be about one inch above the inner corner of your eye). Using an eye pencil, draw a vertical line to sketch the start of each brow, then check that the space above the bridge of your nose is centered between them. Remove the strays that fall in between.
2. Mark Your End Points
Lay the tweezer on an angle against your cheek so that the open end is at the bottom of your nose and the other end reaches the outer corner of your eye. The spot where the tweezer intersects your brow is where the hairs should end. Mark it with the eye pencil, then pluck the hairs beyond the line.
3. Determine Your Brow Thickness
Starting just below the fullest part of your brow, use an eye pencil to draw a line along the bottom edge of your brow; it should be above any stray hairs and it should follow the natural shape of your brow’s top line, which may be angled, slightly curved, or even straight. Pluck the strays below the line. Ultimately, your brows should be between a quarter inch and a half inch at their thickest.
4. Shape Your Arch
Look straight into a mirror. The arch should peak above the outer rim of your iris and lie right on your brow bone: “Imagine upside-down check marks, but with soft angles,” says Vucetaj. Mark the point with your eye pencil, then remove a row of hairs along the bottom, from your inner brow point to the peak point. After the peak, shape the tail.
