Make Up Advice

Hints, tips and general advice on all things cosmetics, make up and skin care.

Get The Perfect Cut Crease Eye Shadow.

Get The Perfect Cut Crease Eye Shadow. A really sharp, dark and intense cut crease is a great look, much favoured by the Kardashians et al. If you have tried to get this look you will have discovered how difficult it is to achieve.

You need a really steady hand and being able to create a perfect curve freehand is very difficult.

But there is an easy way. You need to find a circular item that, using the upper hemisphere only, is the correct size to fit into the deepest curve of your eye socket curve. Suggestions for this item include coins and bottle bottle caps. It is worth taking the time to find something that fits exactly.

The first step is to cover your entire eye area with your base eye shadow shade. Then apply the shade you want on the lid up to and just slightly over the socket line. Then apply your highligher shade from the socket to the brow line.

Then take your circular stencil item and place the upper  hemisphere into the socket line. Take your dark shade and apply to the area above the circle. Blending into the highlighter shade and flicking up or blending out at the outer corner as you prefer.

This will give you a crisp, sharp cut crease exactly in your socket line.

Give it a try and keep your circle stencil in a safe place so it does not get chucked out accidentally.

How to Make Small Eyes Look Larger.

How to Make Small Eyes Look Larger. Big, dramatic eyes are always in fashion but some of us feel our eyes are too small. How to make small eyes appear bigger is one of the most common questions we are asked here at Cosmetics4less.

The good news is yes you can make your eyes look larger. The best trick in the book is to curl your lashes with an eyelash curler before applying mascara. Heat the curler up with a hair dryer before use, this will give you the benefit of heated eyelash curlers without the expense. Then apply creamy white eye pencil to the lower inner rim of your eyelashes. This needs a steady hand but the result is well worth the effort to perfect the technique.


Apply black, dark blue or dark brown eye shadow to the inner top eye lid, closest to the nose and at the outer corner. Use a lighter colour in between and blend well. This will make your eyes look bigger and rounder. Take a white eye pencil and paint a small dot in the corner of your eye.


Use a liquid or gel eyeliner on both the upper and lower lash line but start about half an inch away from the inner corner of the eye. This emphasises the outer section of the eye which maker it look wider and longer. if you don't usually use an eyeliner and you are not confident about using a liquid or gel, start by using an eyeliner pencil. Try to draw a line in between the base of your lashes, rather like dot to dot, rather than trying to draw the line above the lashes. This makes it much easier to keep the line straight and gives a natural, fuller eyed look.

Apply a little of the lighter shade of eye shadow you have used to the outer under eye area close to the lashes. Use lots of mascara, making sure to keep your lashes separate and not allowing them to clump up. If your own lashes are a little sparse use some false eye lashes. You can get some very natural looking ones if you don’t want them to look too obvious.

Apply a natural or nude shade of lipstick or lipgloss and keep blusher to a natural looking minimum. This will focus all the attention on your eyes and avoid them getting lost in a whole face full of colour.

Summertime Concealer

Summertime Concealer

Even if you are going for a natural look this summer, concealer is still a must. Nothing refreshes your complexion and smooths out imperfections as well as the correct shade of Concealer

Now that summer is here your face should be taking on that sunkissed look. It could be from a natural tan, fake tan or bronzer, your usual concealer will now be too pale. The skin around your eyes is slightly darker than the surrounding skin of your face so Concealer that is paler than the surrounding skin will give you panda eyes, not a good look at all.


You don’t want to have to buy a whole range of concealers to use as your skin tans. So the answer is a concealer palette with several shades that you can mix and blend to get exactly the right shade, easily changing the shade as your complexion changes.

A good example is the W7 Concealer Palette. This great product includes five shades of concealer, a mirror and a double ended concealer brush.

You can mix and match the blends to create your perfect concealer tone. Different areas of your face need a different tone of concealer for a natural finish.


Your skin tone changes with the sun and varies with your day and night make up, even depending on how well you feel each day!

So one shade will never be enough for that perfect result. With this great new product you can create as many tones and shades of concealer as you need.


W7 Concealer Palette is only £2.99 from Cosmetics4less so give it a go and revamp your concealer this summer.

Make Up for Looking Cool in the Sun.

Make Up for Looking Cool in the Sun. With temperatures forecast to hit 30% it is important to adjust your make up so you stay looking as fresh as a daisy with your make up immaculate.

Start with an oil free moisturiser. Allow this to sink in to the skin before applying anything else so that you don't start off with a damp surface.

A Face Primer can be useful in hot weather as it can help prevent your make up from melting and sliding off your face.

Then apply an oil free foundation, if you can get one with an SPF, go for the highest factor possible. Or you can try a tinted moisturiser and concealer or a BB cream only for a more minimal, natural look.

A light dust of Bronzer improves everything. Your eyes will look brighter, your skin will glow, your teeth will appear whiter and you will look healthier and full of energy even on the most draining of hot days.

Apply bronzer with a large powder brush, in sweeping strokes where the sun would naturally hit your face, forehead, cheekbones, chin, nose. Powder is best for hot weather as sticks and gels can melt and slide in the heat.

Be very cautious about using any products with a shimmer as this can make you look shiny and sweaty.

Go for a nude or natural shade of lipstick, apply several coats, blotting as you go.

Keep your eye cream for night time only. The eyelids are normally quite greasy, causing eye shadow to crease. Try and Eye Primer to increase staying power.

For Blusher try a cheek stain as this will last longer than a cream and a powder can look a little cakey.

Avoid the repeated use of face powder to blot up moisture as this will result in caked layers. Instead blot with a tissue.

Keep drinking plenty of water to keep your skin plumped up and hydrated and keep out of direct sunlight when possible to avoid the damaging and aging effects of sunlight.
