Arch Those Eyebrows!

Arch Those Eyebrows! To enhance the arched effect of your eyebrows, apply your usual eyebrow make up, pencils, powder, wax etc. Then, taking an eye shadow brush, load it with a shimmering highlighter powder.

Draw a line above your eye brows, the half nearest your temple only, following the arch of your brow. Blend well with your finger tips so no obvious line is visible. This will make your eyebrows really stand out without having to make them too dark or shapely defined. Giving a subtle, more natural look.

Cosmetics4less stocks a wide variety of Highlighters suitable for this. The W7 Glowcommotion compact shown in the picture is ideal. Cosmetics4less price for this lovely, shimmering Highlighter compact is only £2.45.

You will find lots of other great eyebrow products, everything you need for perfect eyebrows in the FOR EYEBROWS section of the website.

How to Fix a Nail Emergency

How to Fix a Nail Emergency It has happened to all of us. We have been growing our nails so they will look terrific for that important big day, then the day before the event a nail tears, sometimes even lower than the quick, ooch!.

Don't worry, this can be fixed. Take the paper from a dried used tea bag and tear of a piece bigger than the nail tear. It's important that the edge of the piece is torn all the way around, no straight lines. This is so that the piece can be incorporated into the nail surface without leaving an obvious edge.

Apply a generous layer of base coat to the whole of the affected nail and, while its still wet, place the piece of paper over the tear in the nail. Push down well so that the paper is bedded into the base coat. Allow this to dry completely then apply another coat of base coat on top. When this is dry apply several coats of your usual nail polish until the paper is invisible.

This patch will last for quite a while. Apply a new coat of polish or top coat every day to extend it's life. This trick should get you through your important big day and allow the nail to grow up a bit beyond the quick so that when you have to trim the nail and it's patch it won't be sore and will look OK.

Max Factor, the Father of Modern Make Up.

Max Factor, the Father of Modern Make Up. The name Max factor is synonymous with make up and cosmetics in the UK. It's famous products; Creme Puff, Lasting Performance Foundation and Pan Stik are almost as popular as ever and it's new mascaras sell very well here.

The extraordinary and romantic story of the original Max Factor, the Father of Modern Make Up, might almost have come from one of the films that made his name household words.

Born Maximillian Fakbrowiczin in 1877 in Poland, Max was of Jewish descent. He learnt his skill when he was apprenticed as a young man to a pharmacist and dentist. He was still a young man when he left Poland for Russia and set up his first shop in Moscow selling perfume, skin creams, wigs and cosmetics. His big break came when a theatre company used his cosmetics for a performance watched by many of Russia's aristocrats. This led to his appointment as Cosmetics Consultant to the Russian Royal Family.

Increasing anti-Jewish feeling in Russia and Eastern Europe led Max to emigrate, with his young family, to America in 1904. At the infamous immigration centre on Ellis Island his unpronounceable name was simplified to Max Factor.

The family had only been able to bring a small amount of money with them and Max had to sell his creams and perfumes at fairs all over America before they had enough money to settle down in Los Angeles where Max established his first Max Factor Beauty Salon. Max was one of the first people to see the potential of the budding movie industry there.

Horrified by the dreadful make up worn on the screen in those early movies, Max created the first flexible greasepaint in 12 shades. This was a big hit and Max was soon make up artist to all the great Hollywood stars. The distinctive look of most of the great film actresses were created by Max. Bette Davis, Judy Garland, Joan Crawford and many others owed their screen image to Max and soon their millions of fans around the world demanded the products for themselves.

Many of the cosmetics products we use today were invented by Max, often referred to as The Father of Modern Make Up. Lip Gloss was invented in 1930. Pan Cake make up, forerunner of all modern foundation and nail polish in 1934. Erace, the first ever cosmetic concealer, was launched on the market in 1954. It's modern counterpart is still available today.

Max died in 1943 and the business was continued by his son Frank and by other members of the family until 1976. Today Max Factor is owned by the giant multi-national company Proctor and Gamble. Here in the UK Max Factor is as popular as ever. Colour Adapt and Lasting Performance Foundation, Lipfinity Lip Gloss and Max Factor's excellent range of mascaras are still best sellers and are heavily advertised on television and in magazines using their modern day catch phrase, Max Factor, The Make Up Of Make Up Artists.

Sadly the picture in the United States, the home of Max's success, is very different and Proctor and Gamble discontinued Max Factor in 2010 due to lack of demand. However Max Factor's many British fans need not worry as the brand is still available in Europe and the United Kingdom.
