Privacy Policy:

The Beauty Helper (“The Beauty Helper“) operates The Beauty Helper and may operate other websites. It is Beauty Helper’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, The Beauty Helper collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Beauty Helper’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Beauty Helper’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Beauty Helper may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

The Beauty Helper also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on The Beauty Helper blogs/sites. The Beauty Helper only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Beauty Helper’s websites choose to interact with The Beauty Helper in ways that require The Beauty Helper to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Beauty Helper gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at The Beauty Helper to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with The Beauty Helper are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, The Beauty Helper collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Beauty Helper. The Beauty Helper does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

The Beauty Helper may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. The Beauty Helper may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Beauty Helper does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

The Beauty Helper discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Beauty Helper’s behalf or to provide services available at Beauty Helper’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Beauty Helper’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Beauty Helper will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, The Beauty Helper discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Beauty Helper believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Beauty Helper, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an The Beauty Helper website and have supplied your email address, The Beauty Helper may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with The Beauty Helper and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. The Beauty Helper takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

The Beauty Helper visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Beauty Helper’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Beauty Helper’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of The Beauty Helper may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

The Beauty Helper encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a The Beauty Helper account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes.

I may be an affiliate for some products that I recommend. If you purchase items through my links I will earn a commission BUT, you will NOT pay more by buying through them, in fact I can usually negotiate a lower rate (or a bonus) that isn’t available elsewhere.

Plus when you order through my links, it means that I can guarantee that you get the genuine products through the official websites & I am able to continue to offer you free stuff going forward.

Thanks & Kindest Regards.

10 Quick Eye Makeup Tips

eye beauty tips

Eyes are said to be windows to the soul.

For women particularly, eyes are a beautiful expressive feature and are the first thing you notice. Makeup is a powerful tool that you can get creative with and complete your look. It is not easy to get the eyes right especially when you start out initially.

Read on to discover some tips and techniques professional makeup artists use to help you create your own makeup personality by mastering your eyeshadow and eyeliner application.

1. Avoid pairing intense lip color with strong eye makeup. Never accentuate more than one feature on your face lest people’s focus will be on the makeup rather than on you.

2. When you use a mascara wand to coat the brush, avoid using a pumping action since this adds air into the case making it dry out.

3. While liquid eyeliner gives a wonderful dramatic effect, it can be messy to apply. The trick is to first wipe off excess on the back of your hand to help give it more staying power.

4. When applying eye shadow, remember that a dark shadow makes the eyes recede while a light shadow makes the eyes pop out.eye beauty tips

5. Never forget to blend. Your eyes shouldn’t be able to detect any obvious lines and it should appear as seamless and natural as possible.

6. Try to avoid using waterproof mascara as much as possible. Even though it has amazing staying power, it can prove hard to remove and can make you pull and damage the delicate tissue around your eye.

7. When applying makeup below the eyes, ensure that the makeup above the eyes is always your guide. Never apply too much below than above. The result you should be seeking is to have an upward effect with your makeup application rather than a look that draws attention downwards. When in doubt, start applying makeup above the eyes first to help you determine what you should do below.

8. The best way to give a lift to your eyes is to use an eyelash curler that allows for better precision when curling the lash. To ensure that the curl lasts throughout the day, seal it using gel mascara soon after curling.

9. In case your lashes are thinning or small, a good tip is to dampen the eyeliner brush then apply a small amount of powder as close as possible to the lash working your way to the layer along the lash line. For short lashes, lengthening mascara is a great idea since they contain fibers that can build up on the tips of the lashes and help in creating the illusion of longer looking and fuller lashes. Thickening mascara that have silicone, also help in enhancing the appearance of the lashes.

10. Eye shadow comes in a variety of textures including liquids, creams, and powders. Powders are usually the most popular since they are the easiest to control. Gloss and creams help to give a nice highlighted effect, especially for the evening. However, they tend to smudge rather easily and finally form in the creases of the eye. Therefore, wear them with care.

eye beauty tipsConclusion

The trick to successful eye makeup application is being creative and confident.

When it comes to their makeup routine, most women prefer to stick to neutrals.

Never be afraid to be creative and experiment sometimes to find the look that will suit you best.

You should give color a chance on occasion. The eyes are probably the only feature on the face where just about everything goes.

This communicates a lot about your personal style as well as yourself.
