Prevent Your Eye Concealer From Creasing-3 Easy Steps

So the other im busy putting my makeup on...i check up on it a few hours later and i notice that my eye concealer has creased under my eye. THE HORROR! I thought OH MY GOD! Am i getting wrinkles?? But after i googled this,i found that alot of woman have this problem.
The concealer settles into the fine lines under the eye and it really is not a pretty sight!

After searching for solutions  and testing it out,i discovered the best solution for me.

I love this way because im always rushing to get to work in the morning so this is simple and quick.

What you need: A wedge sponge,eye primer and a good setting powder.

Step 1

Make sure that your eye area is not oily.
Prime your under eye area just as you would prime your eyelid.(I use the Urban Decay Primer).

Step 2

Apply concealer to your under eye area.

Step 3

Use a brush or sponge wedge to apply the setting powder under your eye.
Dust off any excess (to avoid excess product causing it to cake or crease)

Thats it! Try not to go overboard with the powder because then it will defeat the purpose.

I used my Urban Decay eye primer(check my review on this primer here ,my Mac concealer and my Smashbox setting powder(Opan invisible oil blocking powder is good too)

What i used to prevent concealer creasing

Well,this is what works for me,what works for you?

Please feel free to share your beauty secrets under comments!I would love to read about it :)

Winged Liner

I LOVE the winged eye,cat eye flick!

It really makes my eye pop and i love trying all the different ways of achieving this look.
I like to start my line from the lower lash line with an angle brush ,i find that much easier and for a more pointed tip,i neaten it up with some concealer so it is perfect :)

Here are some easy tutorials that i found online.

and this is my winged look :) (im still learning )

Wet n Wild Finally Launches In South Africa

After watching many beauty youtube tutorials,it frustrates me knowing that we do not have certain beauty products available in South Africa which forces us beauty bloggers to buy online,pay for custom fees and  wait forever for our goodies..what a process! not to mention EXPENSIVE!

Wet n Wilds mission is to deliver prestige quality cosmetics at an unbeatable value.
Its been around since 1979 and its inexpensive.

My favourites in the Wet n Wild range are the lipsticks and the eyeshadow palettes.
The palettes also have a mini tutorial at the back of the palette showing you which shadow goes on which part of the eye and its also marked on the eyeshadow (Browbone,Crease,Eyelid) making it easy for beginners.

These shadows are very well pigmented,affordable and amazing quality.
Some of the Trio palettes have a frosty finish.
The formula on the Trios have a soft,buttery formula with a velvety feel and INCREDIBLE pigmentation.

I think they blend out quite well and i want to own every palette they have!!! lol
Wet n Wild makeup have now been launched in selected  Clicks stores.
They are still rolling out and will be available in 20 Clicks stores before November 2013.

They already launched into 9 Clicks Stores:
East Rand Mall
Greenstone Mall
Key West
Kolonade Centre
Menlyn park
River Square

The Mall At Reds

Since i was on leave yesterday and i was in Menlyn Mall,i decided to check it out.
I did not see any 6 pan palettes though and i was really after Greed and Lust.


Single Palette-R34.95
Trio Palette-R59.95
8 Pan Palette-R89.95

Great Value For Money

Have a look at their Wet n Wild Facebook Page.

Riri Hearts Mac Purchase And Swatches

Hi Honeyz

WOW,I have not done a blog post in a loooooooooog time..
Well...Rihanna is definitely on a roll these days.She is  a very busy lady!

Makeup launches,video releases and her world tour and getting weird tats on her hand...Kind of crazy,watch this video as she endures the pain of them hammering ink to her hand just looks so OUCH!

So back to MAC ! Rihannas fav shade awas Ruby Woo,she pimped it up and made it Riri Woo...Every girls dream to pimp up a Mac lipstick and name it after them :)

Oh Well...atleast my lipstick name is Candy Yum Yum and a quite popular shade as well :) lucky me..

I love hearing stories of the crazy things us girls do for the search of a SPECIFIC makeup product we want!

The Riri Collection was such a pleasent shopping experience unlike a bad experience i have had with another brand.I really hate it when they announce that their collection is out but not ALL their colors are available to the public.
Its extremely frustrating.

I also thought Riri Woo would get sold out in 1 day but they still had alot the next few days and now it is available online  Mac South Africa.

I have not had time to play around and experiment with the colours yet but when i do,i will post more pictures.

I have purchased  Riri Woo,Talk That Talk ,Diamonds Base and a Smoked Cocoa Palette.

I thought my favourite buy would be Riri Woo but its actually Talk That Talk (a deep purple/plum).I have not used Diamonds yet but on my skintone it would be great as a highlighter or a eyeshadow base.
It is a champagne colour that has fine shimmer in it..gorgeous and oh so creamy.

I will do a seperate review on Riri Woo once i have tried and tested it out properly..i love that it has Riris initial on the lippie.
Im so in love with the packing,its just SO PRETTY!

I swatched Talk That Talk , Riri Woo and Diamonds with flash.
