My French manicure

Requirements: A pink base coat, A white nail tip colour polish, A clear top coat, Nail polish remover, A Flat Round Tip Eyeshadow Brush, A Paper towel
I'm starting painting my tips with the white polish nail, in soft light strokes. I apply 2 coats of white colour, but they don't have to be even.

Then I'm gonna take a small container and with the polish remover fill it up there.
So using a old eye shadow make up brush with a round tip, I'm gonna dip it into the acetone, wipe it on to the paper towel, and with light strokes side to side, I start to remove the white paint that I want to get off to create the shape that I'm looking for.
Also, If Im going with the brush into the corners of the nails, I can clean them a little bit. This helps to remove the paint from my skin.
After the tips are completely dry, I apply one coat of the pink colour over the entire nail for a natural finish.

For a bolder look you can use 2 coats.
And the last thing it's advisable to apply one more coat of clear polish for protection.
I have been using this method for my nails about 3 months, and now just takes me 15min!

Pencil, Cream/Gel, Liquid Eyeliner

The EYELINER PENCIL is the most common one, the one I use the most is from MAC, called smolder, an REVLON ColourStay I love these ones because they are very creamy and applies very smoothly. If you don't know how to apply it start doing it with short strokes, starting in the outter part of your eye working to the inner corner.
The eyeliner pencil is the best one to use in the waterline of your eye.

The GEL EYELINER that I use is from Bobby Brown. I have the colours sepia ink & black ink, these ones are very long lasting and I apply it with a ultra fine brush. I don't normally like gel based eyeliners because I find they apply a little bit tricky, and i didn't have a very nice experience with other gel eyeliners. When I apply this one I only have to dip the brush in the gel eyeliner once, draw the line.., and it's done! I really like it!

The LIQUID EYELINER is my favorite! I always use L'oreal Paris Super Liner carbon gloss, the application is very easy.
The applicator design is super thin, flexible, and the product comes out evenly.
I find that it stays a long time and doesn't smudge or run.
And it is an inexpensive product.

YSL Foundation & Touche eclat

The Perfect TouchI really like this foundation, is really good, it give you a very nice mate,flawles finish!
the think that a don't really like is the little brush applicator that comes with, is a little bit unhygenic if you don't wash it frequently, (i used to wash it with baby shampoo) but the best way to apply it for me is putting a little bit of product in my hand, and with a sponge, apply it all over my face.

The Touch Eclat is basically a concealer or also a highlighter. cover dark circles, shades, blemishes, redness, and blends very nice on your skin.
