MAKEUP TIPS, TRICKS, DOS AND DON'TS 101!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

   HEY!! really been a long while, hope you have all been doing great :) . I do apologize for the long silence, still trying to settle down properly in school. I was so sad I could not do the edition of GREAT UPCOMINGS FOR THE WEEKEND/WEEK last friday, there will definitely be another edition this friday so if you've got any talent you want to showcase, tell me about it --->> dangelola@yahoo.co.uk.

well!! well!!!! well!!!!!!

  dangel eyez has seen enough makeup disaster and its time to blog about it. Some girls lovee to use makeup, some can't do without it and some think it is not neccessary. Well,  people are entitled to their opinion about makeup!!

 I am a makeup fan and i love the art of it as long as it is used RIGHT.
                so this is makeup tips,tricks,dos and don'ts 101
   The thing is many girls forget the first rule of using makeup "LESS IS MORE" and use everything at once and in the wrongest way possible(oh me gosh , you have  no idea!!)and  what you get is a really good masquerade look and please this rule also applies to the regular white powder.
                                           TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THIS 

there are so many things wrong with this look. I see red, I see black,purple and I am totally confused????? 
YES!! a lot of girls/ladies/women end up looking like this sometimes and go out feeling "hawt!!"lol .. we really need to be careful.
   I love makeup and I constantly search for great makeup tips/tricks/dos n don'ts and it really helps. so I am going to share it with you.
 dangel eyez will really appreciate if other eyez(other people) get to post other makeup tips not mentioned here or makeup errors you have seen. we are all here to learn!! so have fun telling us about your own makeup tips,tricks,dos and donts.

Once again the FIRST RULE which must remain at the back of your mind while you do your makeup is

RULE 1: LESS IS MORE- Thou shalt not forget!!.

 What you get from putting too much is an artficial look and I am positive that your intention is not for people to think you put a terrible mask on. :D :D
 makeup is meant to enhance your natural beauty, make you really look beautiful.
Another thing is if you put so much effort to your eyes then make sure the lips aint shouting "look at me too". okay people, What I'm I trying to say is

RULE 2: Thou shalt not overdo both...If you are rocking the lips, let the makeup for the eyes be really soft and vice versa.
 For example: don't put on a really shouting gold colour on your eyes and a loud RED color for your lips..(you get the picture right?) like who are you trying to confuse durrling??
allow me to give you examples of what I mean by this simple rule number 2

AND FOR THE LAST LADY....she worked the eyes and kept the lips looking soft and simple...now THATS WHAT I MEAN!!!

blush brush
foundation brush
lip brush
powder brush

 During the day, try not to forget that the sun does shine!! so pleasee go soft on the eyeshadow or all everyone you come across will be seeing are the colors on your eyes and not your pretty eyes.  stay away from colors with glitters or shinning colors and make it soft . 
so this is a bit more colorful than the remaining two but you can still rock this during the day. its soft, pretty and has no glitters..its a fun summer look

  yay!! no sun!!... still i go with soft and less but ofcourse you can play with colors and bring out the glittery ones but play safe. try not to overdo it.
A great night look!!


   Make sure your face is clean and use a good moisturizer. Start applying makeup about 4mins after moisturizer. 
At so many points I'm going to be screaming in this blog like right now ...GET THE COLOR OF FOUNDATION THAT IS THE SAME WITH YOUR SKIN COLOUR (screaming out loud) I know a lot of girls that just want to be fair when they are OBVIOUSLY NOT, cannot remember when black stopped being gorgeous. 
ANYWAIZZ drop that foundation if its not your color(whether its too dark or not) and go with the other one that is. Its really sad to see the difference in the color of the face and body on many girls. why would anyone prefer to look like they are wearing a mask??? 
      RULE 3: make sure you test the foundation by applying it to around your jawline area under good light(prefarably sunlight)
  Use a concealer(the same color as your foundation) for dark spots on your face. Apply your foundation with a brush or foam/sponge(depends on what you call it). I prefer to use the brush and I do not buy the idea of using fingers(not hygienic). 
Apply your powder with a powder brush which helps to put the required amount of powder on your face. You can also use a foam but be sure to remember RULE 1.


    First of all shapen your eyebrows, it makes a whole lot of difference.trust me!!

RULE 4: Properly shapen your eyebrows. It truly truly makes a beautiful difference.

 personally, I am not good with using eye pencils for my eyebrows yet so as you can see from the picture above, I dont make my eyebrows too thin when I shapen them.
Talking about eye pencils, please and please do not use colors for your eyebrows, i just really get confused when I see a lady who has shaved off her eyebrows, only to be DRAWING eyebrows in OTHER COLORS than black especially wine...not good, not good!!
By the way, when I mean black , please go for a soft black color/dark brown not the really dark ones, like I said its all about enhancing the natural look not searching for an artificial one. 
so stop the excessive drawing in various colors other than soft black/dark brown, make sure it looks natural.
  For those of us that cannot use the eye pencil, I use mascara sometimes to brush it upward or I use a black eyeshadow on it, applying with an eyeshadow brush. Remember I dont make them too thin when i shapen them so with a little eyeshadow or mascara, it looks a bit darker and still natural.

EYEZ,EYEZ,EYEZ..i love eye makeup especially when its beautifully/properly done.
So rock soft colors and try to leave the glitters at home during the day and you can play with colors and bring out the glitters at night.
Most of the time, basically use the color you wish to use at the bottom then above it an earthy dark shade and below your eyebrow(brow bone), a bright color prefarably a soft cream color that will not look ridiculous with your skin color …I am sure you have seen plenty women with so much gold close to their eyebrow, its not supposed to be too much. It is meant to bring out your really shaped brows, the idea is just to brighten that area nicely...not too much!!
I love using eyeliners.Took me a while to learn how to apply the liquid ones, anyways now there are the ones you can just roll on. Well eyeliners are cool and mascara is a must-do because it makes your lashes look great.


 "oh! dear dear blush, how lots of ladies have misused you"....yes!yes!!yes!!! blush is not meant to turn you from your natural colour to RED...OR PINK.
When it comes to blush, I enforce the "less is more rule". first of all, you cannot just use any colour of blush, you have to check your skin colour/tone. pink or peach looking coloured blushes are prefarable for fair people(in my opinion), dark-skinned girls can rock the red looking ones and probably fair-skinned girls too..well, just like foundation get the right colour of blush and dont put too much!!!

like the lady here, it should not be too much
when you're done
     IMPORTANT..blush is to be applied with a blush brush and if you dont like smiling well you just have to smile every morning to apply your blush. lol! I'M SERIOUS!! as you can see the lady above. Smile and apply the blush to the apple of your cheeks(the part that comes up and looks cute and cheeky..lol hope you get??), now use the brush to smoothen the blush upwards so it appears like its fading upwards. do not cover your whole cheek with blush.

If you must use a lipliner, you should try using one with the same color as the lipstick. Then so that it does not just look like a LINE, blend it with your lip brush, i mean just slightly use the lip brush to brush the lipliner upwards. This way it blends nicely with your lipstick. Then apply a lipgloss to finish it up!!

Lets not forget darling readers that too much of everything is bad..So here goes our next rule

RULE 5: make sure to remove makeup before you go to bed, to prevent having pimples, spots and the rest of that family..lol
I also believe that you do not need to use makeup everyday, i mean you should allow your face breathe once in a while by not applying any makeup on it maybe on days that you just want to relax at home.

    Now dangel eyez came across a really great video http://www.videojug.com/interview/make-up-myths-and-legends-2

dangel eyez


  1. nice tips.... lool @ the colored eyebrows.
    p.s: you didn't say anything about lashes.

    ~ x ~

  2. @drophint2uj...thnxx dear for your comment
    and the colored eyebrows thing is really annoying..lol
    about lashes...i dont fix and I just use mascara, I already have long lashes.hence, i dont search for tips on that but i really hope someone that knows something about that would share their tips with us.
    Although, a makeup artist was applying mascara on my lashes like one by one saying it makes it look longer and better(couldnt do it by myself tho :P )plus i also saw somewhere that if you apply mascara again like after the first application has dried, your lashes look better.
    hope you watched the video too.
    and keep checking the post, someone might have a great tip for lashes.
    much luv,
    dangel eyez

  7. dis is nice and i got some tips finally

  8. a darling reader sent this to my yahoo mail
    She says "I totally agree wiv ur makeup tips. About the blush people need to know that asides from red n pink there are other colours of blushes. I discovered dt mixing peach or pink n a nude colour of blush like brown (tannish gold) gives u a more natural look or jus go for the brown alone.
    Also using a blue eyepencil to line bth the lower n upper eye lids alone brightens ur eyes n u nid not apply any eyeshadow just a mascarra.
    And the loreal telescopic mascarra does wonders to the eye lashes.
    But I've got a question on wot I can use to make the hair on my brows fuller as they are so sparse.

  9. @anonymous..thanks :)
    much luv,
    dangel eyez

  10. aramide..i dont know how you can make the hair on your brows fuller :( you mite just need to be using the eyepencil(mke sure its nt too dark and it luks natural)
    id kp checking tho about another solution :D
    thnks for your tip!!
    much luv,
    dangel eyez

  14. hey, got a new tip from a friend of mine!!:D :D
    well, she says that one could also mix up colors for blushes.say for example a gold colored blush with a light pink.
    And for those with short eyelashes. The loreal telescopic mascara works wonders in elongating ones lashes.
    much luv,
    dangel eyez

  15. i have a comment about the foundation rihanna is wearing. it may not be that the foundation doesnt match her skin. When you have a high spf in your foundation then it cast a light on your face when taking pictures. that may be the cause of her white face dark neck!

  16. I really liked your article. Do you know if lip glossy can enhance lips...i mean to make them look bigger?!...Thanks a lot

  17. @anonymous..thats true n that might be it. was actually just showing people how a wrong color foundation will look :) thnx again for the info

    @anonymous2.. thanks a lot :) yes i think so, saw somewhere that if you dab your lipgloss at the center of your lower lips after applying it everywhere on your lips, it will make it look bigger. i cnt be 100% sure cos i already have full lips but you could try it out :) thanks again
