Applying The Perfect Makeup For a Casino
Photo Credit: Ruth Ellison, Pre-wedding make-up, CC BY 2.0 There are several reasons why women like to wear makeup. The obvious ones are to make the wearer feel confident, to make an impression, or to accentuate certain features. Then there is makeup for special occasions. For example, going full gothic for Halloween or imitating fashion magazines for a wedding or a special party. But it's also worth remembering actors and actresses wear makeup when playing different roles on TV, in plays, or in movies. In that instance, makeup is used to help play a role, and applied correctly can help disguise certain features. It is this latter purpose that makes makeup an important part of the poker player's arsenal in a casino. When sat around a busy table surrounded by high rollers, weekend players, or adrenaline junkies, good players learn to read an opponent's body language while simultaneously disguising their true feelings, hence the term poker face. A critical tip that helps you win at poker is not to get bluffed, proving that misdirection is a key weapon in a poker player's arsenal. If you're heading to a casino to be dealt into some hands, makeup can help you get ahead as it hides parts of your natural face and draws attention away from other parts of your body and features. Therefore before a night in a casino, it is important to consider these makeup tips. Be Bold Casinos are glamourous places where the scent of money, and lots of it, permeates the plush carpets to the well-furnished gaming rooms, so it pays to dress the part. To blend in with your surroundings, don't stint on your colors. Go heavy on the smoky eyeshadow and use a highlighter to make that impression you are at one with your surroundings. While bold eyelashes are all the rage, don't be afraid to lay on that foundation. You could seek to channel your inner Kim Kardashian, a woman completely at ease in luxurious surroundings. Be Bright Black and white are colors for Apple launch parties or the chessboard. For casinos, it's about being brash, so going all-in bright red lipstick , perhaps with some added gloss, is a good look. And don't be afraid to add some sparkle to your aesthetic, for example, by adding glitter to your eyelids. Whilst people are focused on you, they are less worried about the cards you have in front of you at the poker table. Top it all off with a stylish black dress and a branded handbag that makes you feel like a million dollars. Different Effects Makeup is part of the player, as is the outfit you wear, so a lot of thought goes into bringing it all together. For example, an icy silver smoky eye with a sequin dress combines the glamor of a Las Vegas showgirl with the steely determination of someone who knows their way around the table. Alternatively, create the impression of an all-seeing, all-knowing player by using a halo eye makeup technique to make your eyes appear bigger - eyes that can look deep into an opponent's soul and read if they're bluffing or not! By following our makeup tips and combining them with your favorite power outfits, you will approach the table oozing confidence and ready for the cards to fall your way!

The Breakdown Of Seint Makeup Brushes
Seint Beauty brushes are all high quality, cruetly free and dual-ended. Seint has quite the collection of brushes to choose from so you might be wondering which one is perfect for you. I'm going to break down everything you need to know about Seint brushes to make your choice as easy as possible. Your perfect brush combo will depend on the amount of coverage you prefer. It's important to get at least one brush as our brushes are made specifically for our cream makeup. If you are using brushes that are made for powder or liquid makeup with cream products you won't be able to achieve the flawless finish you're hoping for. Blend Brush The Blend Brush is perfect for those looking for light coverage. This brush will give you a super soft, natural finish with the larger end and the smaller end is great for getting those smaller areas like around the eyes. Blush + Bronzer Brush This brush is one of the most diverse brushes and probably my favorite. As the name suggests, it's perfect for blush (smaller end) and bronzer (bigger end). The smaller end of this brush is also great for light to medium coverage. The larger end is my secret tool for getting a perfect overall airbrushed blend. The blush + bronzer brush also comes in a bundle with a bronzer shade of your choice under the collections tab and you save a little money! IIID Brush This is easily the best brush if you want to get just one. It can achieve most looks all by itself and will give you light to medium coverage. Be sure to grab the brush cleanser if you get this brush so you don't mix your shades. Buff Brush If you are looking for full coverage this is the brush for you. It has two dome shaped, very dense ends. One end is smaller than the other to help work around areas like the eyes. The larger end is great for quickly applying and blending the rest of the face. If this is the brush for you, I suggest also adding on the Blush + Bronzer Brush. Detail Brush This brush is great for those new to contouring or just love having a brush dedicated to contouring alone. The bigger end is perfectly shaped to snug up to your cheekbones and the smaller end is great for finer details like nose contouring. Powder Brush The Powder Brush is perfect for applying setting powder to your whole face. The bigger round end is best for large aread of your face that require more powder like your cheeks, forehead and around your mouth. The smaller "paw" end is best for areas that require minimal powder like around your eyes. Check out our collections for this brush paired with the Vanilla Setting Dust and save some money! Now that you know all about how our Seint Brushes work and what they are best for, what brush combo is best for you? If you still need help choosing, reach out to me! I would be more than happy to help!
New To Seint? Start Here!
Hi Babe!! I'm so excited to walk you through your new makeup routine with Seint! This will be the best makeup experience of your life and I'm here to ensure you feel confident every step of the way 🥰 In this post I'm going to give you my best tips + tools for beginners, common mistakes to avoid, and how to get your makeup to last all day. Tips + Tools For Beginners 1. One of the best tools for beginners is the diagram below showing where each product is placed. Remember that each of your products (brightening highlight, main highlight and contour) is placed in a single layer and then blended together seamlessly for your base. Other products like blush, bronzer, and illuminator are applied and blended after your base is blended out. 2. The type of coverage you want can be achieved based on the brush you use and amount of product. Here's a quick overview of the brushes and what coverage they offer. Our cream makeup is extremely buildable so you can always add a little more to get extra coverage where you want it. Light Coverage: Blend Brush, Shape Brush, Blush + Bronzer Brush. Medium Coverage: Blush + Bronzer Brush, IIID Brush, Detail Brush, Powder Brush. Full Coverage: Powder Brush, Buff Brush. 3. If you are using only one or two brushes, like most of us do to start out, remember to blend your makeup from your lightest shade to your darkest shade. This will look something like Brightening Highlight, Main Highlight, Contour. This will help keep your lighter shades from looking muddy. Common Mistakes To Avoid Here are the 5 most common mistakes I and other newbies made when trying Seint for the first time. 1. Using too much product: Cream makeup goes a long way so don't be afraid to start off with less than you think you need. If your makeup feels greasy or heavy this is a sign you are using too much product. Try dotting on your makeup and then blending it out to get a good idea of how much product looks right to you. 2. Swiping When Blending: If you are finding the finish of your makeup is streaky it's most likely because you are swiping to blend or using too much pressure when blending. Try using a lighter hand and a tapping or stippling motion to blend. 3. Over Blending: Cream makeup is VERY blendable which is what makes it so user friendly, but it can also be what causes your makeup to lack definition. If you're finding your contour and brightening shades are not very noticeable it's most likely due to over blending. Try to avoid sweeping your brush all over your whole face like we use to do with powder makeup and instead just blend each section on its own. 4. Contour Placed Too Low: Most of us remember the technique of sucking in your cheeks to place your contour. This is actually going to make our face look saggy instead of lifted. To avoid this just place your contour on the underside of your cheekbone. I like to feel for the highest point of my cheekbone and then place my contour just below that so it hugs the bone. 5. Makeup "Slipping": Some women experience their makeup not being able to stay on their face and slipping around. This is due to using moisturizers or primers with silicone in them prior to applying your makeup. Just avoid any productes with a silicone base and your makeup will be fine! Getting Your Makeup To Last All Day The key to getting your makeup to last all day is to prep before you apply and to set after you are done. Depending on your skin type preping and setting will look different. Here's your guide below... 1. Dry Skin Prep: Moisturize your skin about 10-15 minutes before you apply your makeup. Set: Set with a setting spray. Seint Stay Spray is a great option. 2. Balanced Skin Prep: Moisturize your skin about 30-60 minutes before you apply your makeup. Prime your skin with tacky primer like E.L.F. Power Grip Primer. Set: Set with a translucent powder or with a setting spray. Seint Vanilla Dust Setting Powder and Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray are great options. 3. Oily Skin Prep: Do not moisturize your skin at all prior to applying your makeup. Use a mattifying primer or SPF to prime your skin. Supergoo SPF is a great option. Set: Use a translucent setting powder AND matte setting spray. Seint Vanilla Dust Setting Powder and Urban Decay All Nighter Ultra Matte Setting Spray are great options. 4. Combination Skin Follow the above guidelines for each specific part of your face. _______________________________________________________________ I hope that these tips help your new makeup routine to start as smoothly as possible.
