    Your DIVA-LICIOUS Hues 

    Your DIVA-LICIOUS Hues


    A light dusting of powder on the eyelids will help to set eye shadow and extend the wear.
    To set your makeup for a polished look, swirl a large soft makeup brush in the powder and dust it lightly over your face.
    .How to Apply Mineral Makeup for Ethnic Women
    Mineral make-up has become popular in recent years because it light on your face, doesn’t clog your pores like cream based and liquid make-up and it’s made from natural earth ingredients.

    Some people have criticized that mineral powder fail to provide complete coverage. This is not true – it’s all about how you apply the makeup.

    Here’s how to Apply DivaGlam Mineral Makeup (Shake, Tap and Brush)

    1.Wash and dry your face with a gentle cleanser. Apply a moisturizer if needed, and allow it to completely absorb before applying your mineral makeup.

    2.Shake a little of your mineral foundation into the lid of your foundation container.

    3.Take your large kabuki brush and gently tap the bristles into the powder. Tap the brush on the side of the lid to shake off any excess until it looks as if your brush has no makeup on it at all.

    4.Brush onto the skin in a swirling, circular motion, starting on the outside of your face near your cheekbones. Then, buff around the remainder of the face, working your way to the cheeks, forehead, and nose. Buff until you’re satisfied with the coverage. Remember, a little goes a long way. You can always increase coverage by adding additional layers.

    .How to Select Eye Makeup that Complements Ethnic Skin

    Your eyes are your face’s most prominent feature. Eye shadow contours, eyeliner defines and mascara adds length and drama to your lashes. Your perfect palette depends on the depth of color in your skin, as well as its undertones.

    1.Determine if your skin has warm or cool undertones. If you have darker skin, accentuate your eyes with shadows and liners whose colours are richer and deeper in intensity.

    2.Enhance a warm complexion with eye shadows that range between soft orange and rust, from honey to cinnamon.

    3.Complement cooler complexions with eye shadows in varying shades of blue, purple and pink. Green flatters skin that has both warm and cool undertones. Blue-greens complement cooler complexions, and brownish, earthy greens enhance warmer ones.

    4.Add glamour to a warm complexion with coppery or golden eye shadow. Pearly purple or silvery blue shadows will glamorize a cooler skin tones.
    .Selecting the right make-up for ethnic skin…
    Since skin tones vary greatly among ethnic women, finding the right face makeup can be tricky. The wrong makeup can lead to an ashen or flat complexion, but with a little insight and a lot of experimentation, you can minimize the guesswork and put your best face forward.


    1.Look beyond your skins colour and examine its undertones. Rich black complexions usually have cool undertones, while brown and caramel complexions have warm golden undertones.

    2.Choose from shades that appear to be in your colour range and may complement your undertones. Remember that foundation will look different on your skin than it does in a bottle or on a thumbnail palette.

    3.Always try foundation on your jawline to get the best idea of a colour match.

    4.Set your make-up with a loose translucent powder.

    5.Contour your cheekbones with a sweep of blush. Plums, currants and mauves will flatter a medium to dark complexion. Caramel, honey and apricot will complement a medium to light complexion.

    6.Bronzer is an alternative to blush for those with a warmer complexion. Dust a light coating over the face, contouring at temples and cheekbones.

    .Things to Consider When Buying Make Up Foundation

    Custom blending foundation is a service that DivaGlam Cosmetics offers for dark skin since the skin tones can be darker in some areas, such as the forehead, and lighter on the cheeks. We can create a foundation made especially for YOU. It is YOUR own personal foundation, no one else will have it and you can be sure to get the right color for you everytime.


    For most women with dark skin tones, the wrong shade of red can destroy the perfect look. Women with dark brown or deep black skin can use lipstick in various shades of red, while those a little lighter will find that coffee and deep reds work best. Women of mixed race and very light skin tones will find that lipsticks in pink and peach will do wonders. However, you can rarely go wrong with lip colours in terracotta, purple, toffee and berry.

    Neutral coloured lip gloss is also wonderful on the lips of black women.

    Using light shade lipsticks will minimize the size of large lips while darker shades will make lips look larger.

    Eye Shadow and Eyeliner

    When it comes to eye makeup, women with dark skin tones can experiment with lots of different coloured eye liners and mascara.

    Those who are looking for more natural-looking colours can go with earth tones such as browns, gold, cinnamon and caramel.

    To really bring brown eyes into focus, nothing works quite as well as blue eyeliner.


    As a general rule, very dark-skinned women do not need blush. However, if you decide to add blush to your make up, choose from shades of bronze, plum, mauve and wine if dark coloured.

      My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

      Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. Nevertheless think about if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could undeniably be one of the very best in its field. Excellent blog!

    It is a matter of beauty 

    “Have a DIVA-LICIOUS dAY”

    I came across this article about a particular cosmetics line and the information in it is very valuable for anyone to use.  Whether it is this line or DivaGlam, or any other line you want to use.
    The thing about women is that we are very diversified when it comes to makeup and I know that, I myself have several items from several other lines that I enjoy and use as well as my own line.  So please don’t hesitate to try out different lines, what may work for this women and be good for her may not necessarily be good for you.  So do try other things, by all means if it works then use it.  Enjoy the article.
    DivaGlam Cosmetics


    Avant-garde or glamorous evening looks are created using more contrast in color tones. Colors chosen can contrast dramatically with each other or with personal coloring. At night, try highlights with shimmer and deep contour shadows. For a bold or playful look try using colors from both warm and cool families. One idea combines the golden Sunstone and Tigereye shades on the eyes with blue-based Garnet applied to the lips.


    CONCEALER glides on with the flat side and tip of the concealer-face brush or sponge. Apply to discolored areas. Blend away edges.

    FOUNDATION can be applied with the concealer-face brush in a stroking motion or use a sponge with a patting motion. Foundation should be applied from the center of the face to the perimeter. This provides coverage where needed and less chance of a “lollipop look” when the face and neck do not match.

    BLUSH should look like “pinched cheeks” with color along the cheekbone. This is accomplished with the contour-blush brush in a motion lifting color from under the bone, onto the bone. Work the brush from the mid-ear toward the apple of the cheek. The apple of the cheek is the raised pad of flesh seen when you smile. This lifting style of blush application enhances bone structure by framing the cheekbones.

    BRIGHTENER applied with the contour-blush brush adds a glow as desired on the forehead, chin or eyelids. The brightener can be brushed along cheekbones to blend blush application or to use instead of blusher altogether.

    BRONZER can be used as a contour to define bone structure or create a sun-kissed glow to the entire face. Contour the cheekbone by applying bronzer with the contour-blush brush horizontally under the cheekbone from mid-ear to the area below the outer brow. Lift the brush upward to blend. Contour the jaw line with bronzer under the jaw-bone. Start behind the ear and work toward the chin. The nose is contoured downward along the sides from the inner brow to the tip of the nose. Be sure to squeeze the brush between the thumb and forefinger to keep the shading narrow along the sides of the nose. Dusting bronzer across nose, cheek-bones, chin and forehead perimeter and into the hairline creates a healthy glow. Note: Blending with foundation before applying can soften the effects of any shade.


    EYELID BASE fully covers eyelid from lash to brow. Base works to block any natural darkness and provide a surface over which any other shadow will glide. Use both sides of eye shadow brush to apply in windshield wiper” strokes. (Crystal, Opal, Tigereye, Concealer*)

    EYE HIGHLIGHT accents brow arch, but does not cover entire browbone. Apply with pointed tip of eye shadow brush pressing up into brow arch and blending in a one-inch wide arc. Too much light color on the browbone creates a detracting “awning effect.” Your eyes should be the true stars of your makeup.

    EYELID COLOR covers the area from the lash line to the socket and brow bone. A bright, light shadow (brightener*) can be applied to lid above the iris to accent a deep-set eye. A deep, taupe shade (Geode) can make a large, prominent lid appear less so. Apply with the flat side of the eye shadow brush in a pressing motion across the area holding the point toward the lashes and the handle upward.

    EYE CONTOUR defines bone structure. Apply with the tapered side of the eye shadow brush. Stroke on shadow from the outer eye inward along the brow bone to an area above the inner iris. Blend upward and outward so there are no visible lines.

    EYE LINER can be defined or smudged but should always connect to the base of the lashes. Special looks can be created by varying color and technique at top and bottom lash lines, but liner color should not be brighter than eye color. A smudged line is created with the tapered side or tip of eye shadow brush. A defined line is created with shadow on the tip of the eyeliner brush. This brush can be used damp or dry. The eyeliner brush is most effective when held like a pencil with the handle pointing downward. The brush can then press “hyphens” of color up into top and bottom lash lines. Work liner from the outer eye inward, so liner never stops abruptly, but subtly. The more wet the brush, the more defined the effect and intense the color.

    EYEBROW COLOR should frame and lift the eye with a groomed arch shape. Work color into the brow hairs or onto the skin with the eyeliner brush in a stroking motion. The color mixture should match or harmonize with hair color tone. (Geode or mixture)

    DivaGlam Brush Set

    Note: Remember to tap excess color off brushes first to avoid messy shadow and liner application. Never blow excess color off brushes. This may introduce bacteria into your brushes and shadows, causing eye infections. Any shadow that falls onto cheekbone is easily cleaned up using foundation on the concealer-foundation brush and gliding on under the eye and along the top of the cheekbone.

    Brush Care: Shampoo Franché® quality brushes weekly in mild soap, rinsing thoroughly and squeezing out excess water Spray or dip into rubbing alcohol, squeeze to remove excess, and reshape. Dry flat on a towel. Alcohol speeds the drying process by displacing the water NEVER soak or immerse brushes in liquid, only moisten bristles to clean. Correct brush care lengthens brush life and assures a cleaner makeup application.

    Note: Wash sponges daily with soap and water to keep long lasting products clean.

    EYE TREAT is a light creamy concealer base and under eye treatment that has been infused with herbs. It should be applied sparingly under the eye and extended outward above the cheekbone. This helps plump delicate eye tissue and minimize the appearance of lines and dark circles. Use Eye Treat to blend and remoisturize under eye area any as needed. This base works best when used with Franché® concealer.

    DivaGlam TransFix

    BROW TAME as the name implies, controls brows to hold a groomed arch. If you have used Franché® pigments to design your brow shape, use Brow Tame to set the color.
