Eyebrows and functionality
Eyebrows mainly prevent sweat from flowing into the eye, as per the Greek physician Herophilos. Still, later on, Desmond Morris stated that the ultimate purpose of the eyebrows is to indicate the changing humors and frames of minds of their owners. Moreover, with the brow ridges, the eyebrows also shade the eyes from sunlight and prevent rubbish fragments from falling into the eyes, and are insects’ detectors.

Eyebrows and facial expression
Facial expression is the first thing one notices when meeting someone. Be it consciously or unconsciously, people’s facial expressions tend to be reflected through eyebrows highlights.

For instance, an angry person would frown, an astonished person would have spread out eyebrows, a joyful person would have a closer-to-the-eyes eyebrows, a sad person would have that strange-kind-of-molded eyebrows… Thus, eyebrows have a crucial facilitative job in communication, as they strengthen facial expressions, such as surprise, joy, sadness, disgust, and anger. Makeup specialists definitely consider eyebrows as a key feature in defining one’s face.

Eyebrows and face shape
What’s more, you can determine your perfect eyebrow outline according to your face shape. You definitely can look the most beautiful you can. Just look at yourself in the mirror, determine your face shape among the six mostly renowned face shapes, and stick to your finest eyebrows outline. To sum it up, eyebrows are a major facial feature.

There is a genuine relationship between women and makeup products, an everlasting one. A makeup bag is a woman’s companion wherever she goes; glamorous parties, lavish beaches… But what women should know is that this relationship has to come to an end at a certain time,before it turns into a toxic one.

This infographic will be your guide to the expiration dates of all makeup products.



It should be replaced every 3 months. Its liquid is prone to bacteria and its proximity to your eye may lead to infections.

Liquid Liners:

Same rule as mascara. Pencil eyeliners can go up to 2 years. Tip: Sharpen them each time you use them to keep them fresh.


Foundations are critical. If you smell anything unusual in the formula, then it’s a sign that you need to kiss it goodbye. Most of them last for 1 year. Tip: If you have acne or any sensitive skin condition, toss it after 6 month.


Liquid concealer should be disposed of after one year, and powder concealer remainsusable up to two years.

Nail Polish:

If you notice any weird smell in your nailpolish, then it’s time to break up your relationship. Usually it lasts up to 2 years.


This could be a long-term relationship, but if the lipstick becomes dry, kiss it the last kiss.

Tip: To keep track of your product expiration dates, write the date of purchase with a sharpie on the bottom of each product so you’ll know when they pass their prime.

link blog-01

When it comes to choosing which eyebrow design suits your face shape, it can be become a little frustrating. Here are some tips to help you choose the most suitable eyebrows for your face shape:

The Oval Face Shape:

The oval shape is considered one of the ideal face shapes since it defines face features. The soft angled shape eyebrow is perfect for this type of face figure. It goes straight up and then gently curves round at the top and down.

–  The Round Face Shape:

The trick for round shape is to make them less rounded and longer. To attain this, the high arched eyebrows are recommended. What you are looking for is a brow that follows a straight line to the peak of the brow and creates more vertical lines.

– The Long Face Shape:

The advise for long face shapes is to make them shorter.  It is recommended that you use the straight horizontal eyebrow shape. Horizontal shape makes the face look shorter.


– The Square Face Shape:

Square face shape is characterized by a strong square jaw feature. Soften this feature using strong or curved brows. You may use a strong color for the brows and a defined sharp peak at the top.

– The Heart Face Shape:

The best eyebrow for the heart shaped faces is the rounded eye brow. They help create a heart shape using the point of the chin as the heart bottom, and the brows as the heart top.

– The Diamond Face Shape:

The goal is to make the widest part if the face look less wide. To create this look use the curved brow shape or the round shape brows since the curves will help you soften your look.

Get the Grungy-Elegant Look.

How to get  the holiday makeup look?

lana new year1. Start by applying a primer, then a foundation similar to your skin tone and finally some loose powder.
2. For your eyes : start with some eye shadow base to fix the eyeshadow color. It’s a very crucial step; especially when you’re working on a smokey.
3. Use a very dark black kohl (eyeliner) and start by drawing your eyes. Apply it in a thick, dark line above your upper lash line. Try to thicken the amount in the center of the line, while applying more sparingly along the edges.
4. Reach now for your darker eyeshadow. Start at the lash line and with your base color upward. To create the smokey eyes, you must make your eyeliner disappear. It should be entirely blended and smudged into the shadow by the time you are done.
5. Now, blend a lighter shade of eyeliner and eyeshadow (rusty brown for example) to your bottom lash line and gently smudge it. This smudging is the most important step to give you the smokey look. It’s important to have definition on your lower lashes without overdoing it.
lana new year 26. Go for a light pink blush; it will give you just the right glow for your winter look.
7. Make sure to fill your eyebrows with the right color.
