How To: Make Your Party Makeup Last All Night

It’s party season! Which means full-face glam makeup is not just an option… it’s a necessity. But do you ever find that your makeup wears off throughout the night? If so, you may have been missing the most important makeup step without even realising…

We’re talking about primer, ladies! This is the key to perfect, long-lasting makeup.

Perhaps you have been at a beauty counter before and seen the primers but not known the benefits of them. You’ve more than likely walked right past them, as you’re not going to want to spend money on an extra product that you feel you don’t need.

But before you dismiss them completely, let us tell you our top 4 reasons you need a primer:

  1. They seal pores
    Unfortunately, no matter how small your pores are, using liquid foundation often makes them more visible. Using a primer prior to your foundation will take care of this by sealing over them – almost like a blanket, making those pores virtually undetectable.
  2. Smoother makeup
    In the exact same way that a paint primer seals the surface and helps create a bond so that the paint adheres better… a makeup primer does the same for your foundation.  Using a primer before your face makeup, makes your foundation appear so soft and almost velvet-looking – once you use one, you will find it hard to go without!
  3. Makeup lasts longer
    Primers help decrease the amount of sweating through pores, making your face stay put for longer. This is especially great for those of us who are a bit on the oily side!
  4. Works with any skin type or colour
    No matter your skin tone, or type – primer will work for you. Simply apply before your regular foundation routine and enjoy long-lasting, pore minimising, flawless makeup!

How to Fix Your Brows When You’ve Royally Stuffed Them Up

Chances are, you’ve never had full-on Cara brows, but you’ve probably over-plucked at least once (haven’t we all!). A few years ago, the full brow trend came back in full force and actually stuck around, proving not to be a “trend” at all. And unfortunately leaving the skinny-browed gals among us wondering how we’d ever recover from bad wax jobs and bring our brows back to their former glory!

Luckily, The Pink Ladies have 3 tips to help you transform your brows from weak… to fleek!

1.) Put down the tweezers. We repeat: Put. Down. The. Tweezers.
It usually takes about three to four weeks for eyebrows to grow back from a shaping, good or bad. But, if you have thin brows, it can take up to three months or more. The best advice is patience: don’t be tempted to pluck the “odd stray hair” just stop tweezing and give your brows a chance to grow back.

2.) Get your hands on some LiBrow serum
LiBrow is the second chance you never thought your eyebrows would get. No other eyebrow conditioner on the market uses true cosmeceutical technology to give you full, bold brows. It’s Physician formulated & clinically tested and we stock it in Phoenix stores nationwide!

3.) Fake it till you make it
We love to use powders for the illusion of thick brows until they actually do grow back thick! You can easily manipulate how bold you want them to be, just be careful not to apply too much brow powder. Pro tip: Your brows should never walk into a room before you do.
