Eyes are the mirror of our soul, they reflect our intentions and reveal our feelings. Women with large opened eyes are especially appealing and mysterious, that's why we devote such a big importance to eye makeup. Some of us were naturally gifted with big opened eyes and luxurious eye lashes. And others needs to work a little bit harder to get the desirable anime eye effect. Today I'm going to reveal few makeup secrets you have never heard before and teach you how to make your eyes look extra huge just like eyes of anime character.

Follow these easy steps to achieve an anime-like effect:

1. The very first step is to fill in your eyebrows and apply an eyeshadow primer all over the eyelid. This product will secure makeup and make it last all day long without fading and creasing.

2. The next step is absolutely optional. Apply eye enlarging circle lens and let your eyes get used to them. If necessary put a special eye drops to make your eyes feel more comfortable.

3. Now it is time to sketch the new shape for a future anime eye. Lightly apply a dramatic eyeliner with a sharp black pencil and sketch a new bottom lash line.

4. Fill in the waterline and the space between your real bottom lash line and a new lash line with a white eye pencil. Highlight the corners of your eye and brow bone with white satin eyeshadow.

5. With a help of pencil brush apply light brown matte eyeshadow a little bit higher than your natural eye crease. Fake crease will create an illusion of a bigger eye and you can use this trick in your everyday makeup as well. 

6. For the bottom lash line use a bright pink eyeshadow and blend them with a help of blending brush. This eye look is called 'blushing eyes' and it is very popular among kawaii Korean girls. And to finish up your anime eye makeup apply tiny false lashes on the bottom line and a regular lashes on the top. 

Clear And Bright Eyes

Redness can drastically reduce the beauty of your eyes and makeup. A good old eight hours of 'beauty sleep'  is the best remedy against tired red eyes. Try using cold spoons or ice cubes in the morning, this method will make your eyes wake up faster. 

White Eye Pencil 

White color can make everything appear larger. We are used to apply nude eye pencil on the lower waterline to open our eyes. But for an extra enlargement don't be shy to use a bright white pencil and take this to the whole new level. Apply white eye kohl on your bottom lash line, on the inner corner of your eyes and under the brow bone.

Makeup Proportions

Professional makeup look is all about the golden ration and perfect proportions. What do we need to do to make the small eyes appear larger? Cheat the regular rules of face proportions and makeup! Contour your cheeks and nose to make them look smaller and overdraw eyeshadow and eyeliner on your eyes to make them appear bigger. For your lips choose an ombre lip look or bjd doll inspired lips, check out my tutorial here.

Bottom Lashes

For an extra large eye look forget about your natural bottom lash line and lashes. We don't want and don't need to emphasize natural features of the eye. Instead we are going to cheat and apply false bottom lashes lower than they grow naturally. In case you don't have or don't like bottom lashes you can draw them on your skin. Use a liquid eyeliner and tiny synthetic brush and draw lashes on the new false bottom line you've created.

Enlarging Circle Lens

Enlarging circle lens is an optional step, but in case you are aiming for a real life doll or anime eye look try to use a special lens with graphic diameter more than 13 - 15 mm. Choose lens that will perfectly blend with your natural eye color. They should be soft, comfortable and easy in usage. For this anime eye makeup look I used For Vision On & On Blue Contact Lens and you can check the full review here.

Don't have circle lens at home? It's not a problem, because you can try an anime eye makeup even without circle lens. Check out my easy step by step eye enlargement makeup tutorial without lens here and recreate this look right away, without buying extra 'equipment'. Untill next time, hugs and kisses ♡

1. Start your makeup with an eyeshadow primer, apply it all over your eyelid and then blend with a help of your ring finger. Eyeshadow primer will help your purple makeup to last all day long without fading and creasing. Don`t forget to fill in your eyebrows, you can use your favorite eyeshadow or eyebrow pencil as you prefer. 

2. Now it is time to create a winged shape on the eyelid using a purple matte pencil. Try to gently sketch the wing and fill the shape. This will make purple eyeshadow to look extra bright. Don't worry about the mess and uneven edges, you can easily clean them with concealer.

3. The next step is to set the pencil, so the makeup stays on the place. Use a bright matte eyeshadow and apply it over the pencil. Blend the edges with a help of lighter matte color and clean blending brush.  

4. After you are done with blending apply full coverage concealer on the inner half the eyelid. Try to be neat and precise, small synthetic brush will help you with the application. Set the concealer with mint green eyeshadow.  

5. Highlight with the same mint green eyeshadow the brow bone and clean up the fall outs. Apply black eye kohl on the upper and lower waterline. Don't forget to draw a beautiful winged eyeliner. I prefer to use liquid or cream eyeliner and a small eyeliner brush for this.

6. Apply same purple eyeshadow on the bottom lash line. Finish up dramatic Violet Smoky Eye makeup look with a generous coat of your favorite mascara and a pair of false eyelashes.

Sports Bra is a must have for every active women. Remember to choose a comfortable wide strap sports bra, it will reduce breast movement and increase support during physical exercises.  

Push -Up Bra classic shape and some soft padding are perfect for those who need an extra lift and volume. Usually push-up bras have firm underwire that can easily give you a perfect cleavage. For an extra deep d├ęcolletage choose a v-shaped bra, it will stay hidden under the clothes.

Criss Cross Bra is a universal bra with detachable and transformable straps. You can easily change the position of straps to fit almost every outfit or totally remove them if necessary. This bra-transformer will let you wear even an open back dresses, securing and supporting the chest.

Strapless Bra in soft nude shade is perfect for special occasions, it has no lining or rough parts, so this bra is almost invisible under the tight clothes. Of course strapless bra can't support large breasts completely, but the purpose of this bra is to be invisible and shape the curves.

Bralette made from a lightweight tulle or soft cotton material is my favorite bra at the moment. Bralettes are usually very comfortable and feel very nice to the skin. It has no wiring, so it does not provide a great amount of  support,but it is still possible to find a perfect bralette even if you are curvy.

Sexy Bra is probably the most important item for every woman, it is always nice to have a 'special' lingerie in your fashion arsenal. Follow your personal style and choose a bra that will make you feel desirable and confident.

Seamless Slippers or no-line panties are perfect for comfortable everyday living. They are very soft, lightweight and invisible under the clothes. Usually no-line panties are made of a very soft synthetic materials like microfiber and lycra. If you are not a big fan of thongs, you can substitute them with pair of seamless slippers.

Boyshort Panties were made for those 'special' days in the month. They are super comfortable and give a feeling of protection and coverage. Boyshort underwear look particularly beautiful on curve girls.

Thongs are an everlasting classic of women's lingerie drawer. It is almost impossible to find a modern women who doesn't wear thongs. Thongs come in different shapes and made of different materials, but all of them are perfect pair for tight pants or bodycon dresses. 

Sexy Panties are the last, but probably the most important piece of underwear in my today's list. Just like a sexy bra panties should be especially beautiful and boost your confidence.

Every woman has her own lingerie essentials that help her to feel comfortable and glorious day by day. Of course the list of underwear can be endless, but there is absolutely no need to clutter your wardrobe and buy expensive pieces to cover all your fashion lingerie needs.

All About Basic Closet Must-Haves

| on
Friday, September 15, 2017
liz breygel basic fashion must haves wardrobe closet items

Few days ago me and my husband decided to buy a new bigger wardrobe, because we plan to do a little makeover in the bedroom. New wardrobe is perfect excuse to reconsider your current wardrobe and fashion style, especially if you want to improve it. I have complicated relationship with fashion, mostly because I don't think I have a good fashion taste. My everyday fashion style is a mix between sport, grunge, casual and what is clean at the moment! I have a lot of 'home' clothes and pieces I simply love to much to throw away. That's why I have decided that I don't want to move all those awful pieces into my new wardrobe and as a result in my new life.

“Fashion changes, but style endures.” 
― Coco Chanel

Unfortunately cleaning out the mess and getting rid of old clothes can be so hard at times, that's why it is important to carefully think on the decisions and don't throw anything in a rush. There are some important rules you need to follow while rethinking your old style and creating new closet. For instance, fashion trends come and go, what is good today tomorrow may become outdated. But carefully selected wardrobe essentials will always keep your style on 'fleek'. Few basic items will help you to put together any outfit and you won't need to think twice or spend time thinking on your look. Be sure, these fashion staples will never go out of style!

liz breygel basic fashion must haves wardrobe closet items

Basic wardrobe items for women should be good quality, but there is absolutely no need to spend tons of money on branded basics. You can easily find everything you need at budget online fashion stores. Don't buy unnecessary pieces, even if you like and want them very much. 

While developing your basic wardrobe try to be guided by these three simple rules

• the less in more;
• class is eternal ;

• in simplicity is geniality.


Here is  my personal list of 15 everlasting closet essentials every women needs to have:

1. Simple tank top 
2. Formal long-sleeve shirt 
3. Stretch straight leg pants 
4. Classic skinny jeans 
5. Classic blazer
6. Jeans or leather jacket
7. Knit sweater 
8. Basic t-shirt 
9. Pencil knee-length skirt
10. Comfortable pumps 
11. Flat shoes
12. Ankle boots 
13. Classic sneakers
14. Little black dress
15. Bodycon dress

Of course these fashion items can vary, depending on your personal taste and style. For example, I'm not a fan of denim jackets, but I can't stop wearing faux leather one. Try to choose neutral pieces, that will easily fit and complete each other, creating a beautiful casual ensemble. In my next blog posts I'm going to talk a bit about lingerie basics and some foundational accessories every women needs. Ready to start your shopping journey?
