A Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial You Must Read

Interestingly, of all searches performed on makeup, application for a smokey eyeshadow tutorial is at the top of the list.

For instance, some women prefer heavy, smoky eyes while other women prefer a more subtle look. Of course, dark smoky eyes are dramatic, which is why women use this application when going to certain evening events such as the theater, opera, or some other type of Fine or Performing Arts' event. Applying eyeshadow to achieve this particular look requires using the right eyeshadow product, applying the eyeshadow with the right type of brushes, and spending time practicing.

Of course, while smoky eyes are dark and the makeup application is heavier than you would see with other applications, you still want the outcome to be beautiful. In searching for the best smoky eye makeup tutorial, we suggest you start by looking on websites for known makeup artists. To find this information, you could use,,, or any other reputable search engine. Then, type in keywords such as "makeup artist to celebrities".

How to Make a Minion Costume

Hey, so Mrs. Minion here is competing in minion costume contest. The costume took about a week (mostly because of the paper maché dry time) and cost about $50 (less if you already own an exercise ball).

Supplies (there's lots, but hey, it's an awesome costume)

    Exercise Ball (slightly wider than yourself)
    Paper Maché - Mix 1 part water with 1 part flour an a tsp of salt.    
    Construction Adhesive (Either Liquid Nails or Loctite will work)
    2 empty/new quart size paint cans (sold at Home Depot in the paint section)
    Yellow Spray Paint
    Duct Tape
    Hot Glue
    Craft Foam Sheets, 1 black, 1 white
    Utility knife
    small nuts and bolts

Supply Help:
Empty Paint Cans - They sell them right across from the spray paint at my Home Depot. You need 2.

Step 1
Blow up your exercise ball and measure the diameter. Now roll the polywall panel into a tube until it's the same diameter as your ball.

Step 2
(1 part flour, 1 part water, a little salt. Exercise balls have a seam around the middle which really helps in getting a perfect dome. Just paper maché past the seam a little.

Step 3
Attach the paper maché dome to the polywall tube you made in step 1. Let the ledge dry.

I trimmed my dome with scissors to the seam line the ball made in the paper maché. If it doesn't fit, keep trimming the dome little by little until it slides in (or you force it).

Step 4
Cut arm holes and a mouth.

Step 5
Paint the whole thing bright yellow.

Step 6
Make the goggles. You can't cut the bottoms straight off.

Step 7
Make eye balls! Cut a cheap small rubber/plastic play ball in half. Flip the ball inside out. Slide it in the goggle from the side you cut.  Attach with duck tape. Be careful... the paint cans are sharp!

Step 8
Attach the goggles with eyeballs to the minion (now that it has eyes, we'll call it a minion). I taped the paint cans together, ran a bead of construction adhesive around the rims of the paint cans, then taped them to the minion on the sides. Center the eyes right over the seam between the dome and the tube. If you put duck tape on the sides of the cans, the goggle strap will hide it.

Step 9
Cut goggle strap, teeth, and hair from craft foam sheets. Hot glue in place.

Step 10
Hot glue some blue fabric to the minion so he's not naked. Your minion transformation is complete.

The Venus Factor Review

A workout program that goes beyond fitness and health. A really intense exercise and dieting program that doesn't bulk you up and retains your feminine features.

Strictly for women but there's an equal program designed for men which is created by the same author - The Adonis Golden Ratio.

If you are looking for a silver bullet weight loss solution, "designer" workout program, or body jam-type class sessions, you're looking at the wrong product.

The Venus factor is a special workout program for women. The program's goal is to give you that attractive and sexy feminine look. This product is designed and developed by a pair of leaders in the field of fitness and dieting. As for the workout itself, The Venus Factor is a 12-week workout program separated into 3 parts.

There's also an exercise gallery e-book which provides detailed instructions about each workout mentioned in the program and each exercise has images and a link to a video.

Along with the core program, there's the main Venus Factor Workout manual which explains the Venus Index concept. This manual explains how to find your current Venus Index and what fitness target you need to reach to raise your Venus Index. Additionally, you'll also get a dieting manual entitled "Guide to Body Centric Eating." If you are used to lifting light weights, you'll feel right at home. Even if you don't follow the workout or dieting program, the information about the Venus Index and achieving the perfect female body proportions can help you set correct fitness goals.
