But art requires some inspiration and here we brought you that inspiration. Take a look at the following makeup looks and see which ones are suitable for you and which you could pull off the best on your graduation.

6. The Subtle Pink

The all-time beautiful, and oh so snatched. If your skin is on the cool side of the grid, you could totally rock this look. A cool tone foundation with the pink undertones, beautiful lipstick in your preferable hues of pink, as well as a peachy pink blush on the cheeks. The eye look could be an iridescent pink adding the necessary glimmer to the flat look. This is an option if you like to accentuate the pinks in your skin and flatter them with some ultimate mattes.  

5. The Copper Nude

Isn’t that a classic? Especially if you are on the warm side of the spectrum. The best thing is that you can make it as dramatic as you want it to be by adding more browns, burnt shades and golds to the look to make it even more appealing. The bronzer and contours would also add the warm depth and life to the look. This is perfect for a day time event like a graduation party.


4. The Shimmery Gray

Another recommendation for the cool tones, a perfect grey silver and black transition for a smokey eye. Glitter is your thing? Then this your look. Add a cut crease glitter to the inner corners of your eyes in a classic grey smokey eye and make it shine. But keep it subtle with the lip color because after all, it is a graduation event. Use cool tone lip colors like pinks they complement it a lot. Also, an icy silver highlighter would be the icing on top of a lovely cake.

3. The Summer Vibes

Is your summer complete without the perfect hints of peach on the cheeks? Ours is not as well. Everybody loves that bright pinky and summery colors on the lips. To complement and highlight those brighter hotter shades, the other makeup must be comparatively delicate and not so overwhelming. Natural beige highlighter to show that natural glow from within, as well as the foundation of your choice no matter what the undertone is. However, the color of the lipstick from the brighter spectrum must be chosen carefully depending upon the skin tone. A pop of color in the eye would not hurt anyone as well.


2. The Bold and Beautiful

A beautiful bold lipstick with the amazing smokey eye would be the definition of bold and beautiful, let’s say your favorite shade of red.


1. Midnight Dark Vibes

Isn’t it true that the Goth vibes will not be out of style soon enough? Well, we love to see some dark eye coupled with the dark midnight themed lip colors. A pale foundation preferably one or two tones lighter than the original skin color would do. A black liner in the waterline, black eyeliner on the lids blended out with some black eye shadow as well as a deep purple or deep maroon lipstick could create your perfect look as the midnight vibes.


Black Eye Makeup Looks to try in 2019

The dark sultry look and depth of black eye makeup could complement any eye color, any eye shape and any skin tone with no discrimination. One of the most beautiful eye-shadow color which could add dimensions in so many eye looks can create so many eye-looks itself. Get ready to dive in the adventure of dark, deep matte brown shade everyone’s favorite for those extra days. And see for yourself what you can create out of all those black pigments lying around in your makeup drawers.


1. The Classic Black Eye Complete

Never too old, never too done with that. An overall black could just amaze your guests at an evening party, or make your friends go wow at the prom night. A deep pigmented black over the top of the lid highlighted with a decent sparkly shade at the inner corners as well as smoking out the lower lash line with the excess pigment is more than enough for this one. Perfect formal wear you could rock with absolutely anything without a doubt. Make sure to start with a good eye primer so the color of the black shade comes out the strongest.


2. Black with Darker colors on topBlack with darker shades - laencuadre

Black goes well with the darker colors. The black eye makeup is mostly derived from the darkest variants of most colors so it blends out perfectly with them to give you the vibes of the color you are wearing or you completely adore. Take a darker black eyeliner and draw a dramatic winged eyeliner on the top lid. To make it fun and interesting you can add that color on the bottom lash line or you could keep up with the black vibe and smoke it out with the lower lash line.


3. The Black Halo Eye

Keeping up with the trends in this makeup era, the halo cut crease moment is so good and fresh the moment. A darker eye-shade on the entire lid smoked out towards the crease and brow bone and then the halo technique. Take a flat brush with some concealer on it and tap it between the eyelid. This gives a clean slate for a lighter color dimension in between. Then add the shimmery silver color and smoke the borders of halo with the black shadows so the lines will not look harsh.


4. Black with Warm Tone Shades

The warm sultry look of a brown eye shadow blended out perfectly with the black eye makeup, the deepest warmest shade of all (or coolest for that matter). Take the black on the eyelid after putting a lighter warmer shade in the crease. Then buff out the black from the eyelid to the brow bone using a darker warm tone color. Bring that mixture of brown and black to the lower lash line and buff it out subtly till the inner corner.


5. Black with Neutral Shades

Neutral shades add that balance to the dark eye makeup by canceling out the too much of the darkness effect by being in the barely noticeable shades. The black eye makeup, when blended with a lighter neutral shade, have a blended region in the middle to ensure no harsh lines exist at the top of the lid. The darker eyeliner on top of the evened out eye-shadow must be added to give a dramatic lash line effect.


6. Black with Brighter ShadesBlack wirh brighter shade - laencuadre

A pop of color is the drama you are looking for in the world of deepest darkest blacks? You have got the right vibe going on in here. Take the brightest shade you love on the cut crease of a perfectly blended out black and keep on blending and bluffing until you get that desired ratio of color to black eye-shadow pigments. Very bright colors look ultimately stunning on the people with the perfect addition of black eye makeup on the top of the lid.

Blonde Selfie Ideas and Tips For You

Beautiful shades of blonde often lead to complicated pictures. Sometimes you can’t really tell what the exact shade of the hair is. Spending so much money on the salon treatment to maintain that perfect platinum blonde or get that adorable ash blonde, and alas no one can admire the real shade you opted for. Ever met people who said, wow your hair look beautiful in person? Then you definitely need to read this article to make sure you are capturing your blonde selfie right.


1. Angles Matter

Choosing the right angle is about holding the phone in the correct direction to capture the best moment and best possible side of your hair and face. We can agree that normal people have certain problem areas in their skin or hair, including bald patches, hair root regrowth, dandruff or receding hairline etc. And no one wants to capture that for a perfect picture. Be experimental with the angles and choose the ones which do not accentuate the problem areas of your beautiful hair for the blonde selfie.


2. Choose the Right LightingChoose the Right Lighting - laencuadre

And lighting could not get any less important with the passage of time. People are always ignoring the fact that the light reflects the color of the hair and to get it right a right hue of color or intensity of the light must be checked. Pictures come the best in natural sunlight, but in case you are indoors, check out for better lighting conditions under the certain areas of the room or space to see where the blonde shade looks the most flattering.


3. Style them Generously

Avoid being lazy and style those golden locks more frequently. Not all hairstyles are damaging or requiring heat tools or certain hair products. Use the styling tools and products as well, but when you are thinking to relax them a little bit, play around with bobby pins and rubber bands as well. Adorable braids, buns, ponytails, waves, straightened hair and so much more you can do with them.


4. Set Your Face Properly

Taking a selfie while your hair looks flawless, the direction of your face matters as well. As a rule of thumb, your face must always move away from your neck as it causes more visibility of the face in good lighting as well as is so much better for the hair. It helps to conceal receding hairline, top roots of the hair if they need concealing and focuses on the lengths of the hair which actually require attention. You could also try tilting motions for the face to see which of the position makes the flow of the blonde hair gorgeous in the natural wind or in the indoor settings.


5. Get the Makeup Right get the makeup right - laencuadre

One other way to get an advantage in your blond selfies is to make sure your makeup perfectly complements the vibe you are going with that day or your hair in general. For example, if your blonde is a cool tone blonde with the shades of grey, blue in it, then you should accompany it with some cool tone makeup and you can play around with a lot of makeup like brighter lip colors, subtle blushes etc. If your blonde is more towards the warm tone, having peach, red or orange undertones, then you can complement with deeper golds, browns, burnt orange, and other warm tone makeup.


6. Consider Your Background

The color of the background you are in front of while taking your perfect blond selfie is important because a color behind can either accentuate the color or either make it duller and far away from the actual reality. The natural backgrounds of landscapes and the open area do not really mess up the hair color perception and visualization that much, but if the person is in a studio setup where very bright backgrounds are available as an option, a color complementing the undertones of the blonde hair must be picked.


Makeup Brands That Are 100% Cruelty Free and Vegan

Choosing a good makeup brand and sticking to it may sound impractical, but it is what most of the people do anyways. We come to know with the passage of time that all brands have some strengths and weaknesses. Maybe a brand has the most pigmented eye palettes, but they lack in foundations. Maybe a brand gives ultimate full coverage creamy concealers, but they lack at the liquid lip formula.

Cruelty-Free makeup is a new step to a being a better and responsible human being. Being the most compassionate and empathetic creature in the world, it is our civic duty to protect those who cannot. These cosmetics manufacturers vigorously test the makeup products on innocent rabbits because of their inability to protect themselves and being so vulnerable to those lab experiments. We would recommend you to support these makeup brands which take a step further to stand up for things that matter, so buy their products and support this noble cause, because those rabbits are truly innocent.
