5 Hot Makeup Looks This Summer 0

TK's hot summer makeup looks

To get you ready for a long, hot summer we have compiled a list of our 5 hottest makeup looks this summer.

1) Dusty pastel eyeshadows, sweeping right up to the brow bone. Dusty pastels that sweep
across the eyelid and right up to the brows to create a pastel pop throwback to the 70’s.

2) Contouring Trend: either with foundation or bronze tanner for a longer wearing contour. The hottest contouring trend this summer doesn’t involved foundation. You can still create high
cheekbones and sweeping features. The mystery product? Tanning cream. Build up the application to achieve desired effect. Use a stippling brush to blend.

3) White Eyeliner for fresh eyes and enhanced brows. Apply white eyeliner around
corner of eyes and on brow bones, blend well. Creates vibrant, fresh and alert eyes.

6 TIPS TO SHAPE AND SHADE PERFECT EYEBROWS 0

TK's 6 tips for perfect eyebrow shade, shape and colour

Are you looking for ways to shape and colour your eyebrows? Do you want the flattering looks that come with having perfect brows?

We are going to cover these and much more so that you can achieve perfect brows every time while in the comfort of your own home. A number of elements need to be considered and used correctly including eye makeup, natural hair colour and shade and your skin tone.

How to choose your perfect eyebrow shade and colour

Choosing the right colour and shade is an important element that can really help your brows stand out. If you get this step right you can transform your entire look. Points to consider here include: personal preference, style of makeup, age, eye colour, skin and hair colour. Let's start with these 4 shading tips!

As a guide, follow these simple rules:

Tip 1) For darker hair and skin choose an eyebrow shade slightly lighter than your hair colour.

Tip 2) For Hispanic, African and dark skinned women you can play with darker shades of brown to see how they enhance your brows. Black brows also work and create a dramatic and powerful look.

Tip 3) For lighter hair and skin (and pale skin) choose an eyebrow shade that is at least two times darker than your skin or hair. A common mistake for those lighter complexions is to match or choose a lighter shade eyebrow. This will create a washed out look. Be brave, as you may not be used to lightly darker eyebrows however they will enhance and transform your face. If in doubt, ask a friend for their opinion.

Tip 4) As a general rule, blondes should avoid selecting brows that are too dark as they may look harsh, however eyebrow queen Cara Delevingne has mastered the art of high contrast brows with her blonde hair. It depends how you can pull off this look.

Now, for that perfect eyebrow shape!

Tip 5) Eyebrow grooming is essential and is usually done before you shade or colour your brows. TK’s recommends grooming treatments such as threading (a popular method and uses no chemicals or hot waxes), waxing (great for bushy brows) or tweezering and plucking. Be careful not to make any of these common eyebrow mistakes as it takes time to regrow those precious brows!

Tip 6) If shaping your eyebrows at home, be sure to consider these 4 eyebrow elements.

Item 1 and 4 are for your eyebrow start and end, item 2 is your arch and item 3 is the eyebrow taper. We have more info on perfect brows.

When you brush your eyebrows, be sure to brush them using an upwards motion.

If you have thin or damaged eyebrows why not apply an eyebrow rejuvenator serum made from organic and natural oils.

4 EYEBROW MISTAKES YOUR MAKING (AND DON'T KNOW)! 0

Image: lifehack.org

Your brows are actually the window to your soul, not your eyes! The shape and style of your brows can actually make or break your look. Here at TK’s Lashes and Cosmetics we believe in natural beauty, however we also believe in the power of a strong eyebrow and the empowerment that comes with ‘perfect brows’.

There is a new wave of ‘brow-lebrity’ out there today – celebrities who are pushing their unique style statements through power brows and statement arches. Women like Emilia Clarke, Rita Ora and our favourite, Cara Delevigne. Of course, they have access to star stylists and we don’t. Not to worry though…here are our top 4 eyebrow mistakes you commonly make and what to do instead to achieve perfect brows. We also have a special offer available for you, so read on!

Mistake 1: Removing 'unibrow' hair and creating too big of a gap

Nobody likes a unibrow and we should remove unwanted hairs from our eyebrow gap however exercise caution! Do not pluck/wax/thread more than you need to. You will end up with an unnatural look.

Instead: hold a makeup brush vertically between your outer nostril and/or the inner corner of your eye. This is the limit of where you should remove hair.

Mistake 2: Colouring your hair and eyebrows the same colour

Your colour does not have to match (and please don’t use hair colour on your brows it is the wrong product) and actually looks better with a slight contrast. In the case of bottle blondes you can really make a statement by keeping your natural brown brows or trying one of several TK’s Eyebrow Enhancer shades to create a look of contract be it subtle or strong.

Mistake 3: Sparsely-haired eyebrows

Some women over pluck their brows, others have naturally sparse or thin eyebrows. Either way, sparse brows can look a little unloved when they don’t need to.

Instead: Invest in a good eyebrow pencil or try a ‘one stop shop’ product like TK’s Eyebrow Extender (with micro fibres) which has been used by thousands of women to enhance their eyebrow colour, shape, shade, texture and thickness.

Mistake 4: Don’t over tweeze the tops of your brows

The result of over tweezing the tops of your eyebrows is that you can loose your natural arch, it can look messy and you don’t want to make a mistake!

Instead: only tweeze your unibrow, the bottoms or any stray hair that is well and truly out of place. Have you tried eyebrow waxing or threading? They are both excellent methods for achieving perfect brows without the stress of total disaster or brow-ageddon.

4 REASONS TO WEAR A VEGAN MAKEUP BRAND 0

Are you looking for some of the best vegan and organic makeup products and brands to wear? Why not try TK's Cosmetics - vegan, organic and mineral based makeup made in Australia. An ethical approach to beauty for women of all ages!

There are many alternative cosmetic products that use vegan and organic ingredients. When it comes to cosmetics, plant based and mineral ingredients (animal-product free) trump animal based ingredients for several reasons. Many consumers are making the switch to more environmentally friendly choices to support animal-free and eco-friendly products. Where possible we select Certified Organic, Australian Produced ingredients, such as Certified Organic Shea Butter; Certified Organic Castor Oil; Certified Organic Sucrose; Certified Organic Jojoba Oil; Certified Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil... just to name a few.

4 reasons why you should be wearing vegan makeup.

    1) Plant-based and mineral-based natural ingredients are a superior alternative to animal based cosmetics. Plant based medicines and natural therapies have been used for centuries and inherently contain beneficial properties that sooth, calm and heal your skin. Ingredients such as shea butter, castor oil and jojoba oil have been used throughout the ages and are extremely beneficial to your skin.
      2) Our cosmetic range is not tested on animals. Why would you want to put an innocent animal through all sorts of pain and suffering just to wear a makeup product? Our cosmetic range is made in Australia and meets all criteria in relation to no animal-testing of ingredients and finished product.
        3) Cosmetics have been used right back to early civilisations such as ancient Egyptians and Greeks however they used natural ingredients from their surroundings. It has only been recently that the ingredients have changed dramatically and have been replaced with chemicals and other synthetic ingredients - the side effects of their use are often not know! Why risk it? Stick with what is natural.
          4) Do you know what the animal based ingredients featuring in so many modern cosmetic products actually are? If the following list of animal ingredients makes you feel uneasy, you know it is time to make the switch to vegan cosmetics.
              • Hyaluronic Acid. When animal-derived, a protein found in umbilical cords and the fluids around the joints. Used in cosmetics and some medical applications.
              • Shark Liver Oil. Used in lubricating creams and lotions.
              • Snails. In some cosmetics (crushed).
              • Turtle Oil. Sea Turtle Oil. From the muscles and genitals of giant sea turtles. In soap, skin creams, nail creams, other cosmetics. Alternatives: vegetable emollients.

            TK's Cosmetics are proud to bring to you a range of vegan, organic and mineral based cosmetics that are Australian made.
