1) Rear Naked Chokeholds

You certainly won’t be missing much from this experience. Having small fights growing up is what having siblings is all about. The rivalry starts manifesting itself into knuckle sandwiches and, sooner or later, you start realizing why it’s better to just get along.

2) Never Talk Down

This is the face you put on when you realize your sibling decided to talk back to your parents. You want to make sure you eavesdrop as silently as possible without becoming a part of the problem. It’s every kid’s moment of glory to catch their sibling getting reprimanded by mommy and daddy, so don’t mess it up!

3) Whoopsies!

Sometimes you catch yourself in the wrong in the midst of a fight or argument. That’s totally okay if you can learn to control your feelings and act like the bigger sibling. Take the responsibility to do what’s right and make up for it, even if it started at your own hand!

4) Phony Fraternity

Phone chargers are an easy way to tick your sibling off. Siblings will often steal each other’s phone chargers so they can have a twisted advantage when using each other’s belongings. The name of the game is the more sharing, the more chances my sibling has to sabotage me one way or another. Gotta keep your wits about you!

5) Race To The Showers!

On your marks, get set, GO! That’s usually what goes off in your head as bath time approaches. It’s always a race to be the first one in the shower because, let’s face it, if you’re not first, then you’re last!

6) Shadow Of Youth

Being the younger sibling can be tough sometimes. It’s especially burdensome when you’re faced with living under the shadow of your older sibling, who can seemingly do no wrong in your parents’ eyes. All the more reason to have that motivation to out-do them whenever you get the chance. As a younger sibling, make sure to use that inner fire wisely.

Save

7) Shut The Door Please!

Ah yes, favors. You could ask them all you want, but odds are, your older sibling is going to shoot you down. Besides the odd satisfaction of rejecting your younger kin, it’s also not the coolest thing to hang around people younger than you. Also, siblings like ruining each other’s sense of privacy since it can really get on their nerves so they detest doing favors for each other.

8) Escape From Alcatraz

You just evaded the parental units and you managed to find that one toy your sibling’s been hiding from you all this time. What are you going to do next? Try extracting yourself quietly without a trace. The quicker and more incognito you can do it, the less your sibling will be suspicious of your spying.

Save

9) Favors Not Worth Asking

Is it possible to get away from doing your dirty work? Some siblings intend on having their smaller, inferior relative do their bidding for them. As long as the other sibling isn’t willing to rat out any names, then you may be in the clear, depending on how gruesome the task at hand is.

Save

10) Pet Betrayals

Having a dog decide between their friend and “best” friend is actually a confidence breaker. We all want to have that bond with an animal, but some of us get luckier than others when we attract their attention. Just don’t take it out on anybody if you start noticing your sibling getting more cuddle time with your furry friend.

11) Annoying 24/7

You can expect to hear constant bickering and shouting your way when you have a sibling. Their incessant noise pierces the calm air whenever you think they’ve gone away. Start getting used to the racket, or else it will just be worse for you in the end.

Save

12) I’m Sorry!

When horseplaying goes too far and someone actually gets injured, it’s time to run for cover. Apologies start coming in 100 mph as you try to do all you can to settle the score before your name gets relayed to your parents for disobedience. It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt.

Save

13) Who Ate My Cookies?

The classic “My sibling stole my food” ordeal. You go back to your favorite potato chip bag only to realize someone swooped in and took the rest. What a fine way to do business. Every sibling has an excuse for taking their kin’s food, but not every sibling has the wit to know how to get away with it.

Save

Source: ThriftyFun

14) Now You Listen To Me!

Ever had or seen a situation where the older sibling stays home to take care of the younger siblings? If you have, then you’ve noticed by now how the younger sibling tends to never listen to the older one’s commands. The pressure is on the older sibling, though, because they know most of the responsibility hinges on them if something were to go wrong. If the babysitting succeeds, then the older one would’ve earned their parents’ trust moving forward. Trust us, the younger sibling WILL try to sabotage that opportunity.

15) There Is An ‘I’ In Win

Winning for a sibling means everything. A small victory feels like conquering a new planet, in a way, one feels after. It’s like knowing you have the validation of your parents on your side as proof that you have won the argument. Nothing quite feels better than that!

Save

Source: me.me

16) Battle For The Remotes

When we were younger, true power is having the television remote control at your disposal while your sibling cluelessly searches for nothing but empty air. There was some oddly satisfying feeling of knowing you had complete power of the living room and nobody could tell you otherwise. Don’t forget to account for the tv receiver! Most siblings will counteract with a good ol’ receiver block to render the possession of a remote useless.

Save

Source: @SignatureSanko

17) War Of The Television

Again, we start seeing a common denominator here: television. The crux of modern-day living, there have been countless sibling battles waged in the living room as a result of the television. The age-old tradition continues when Netflix adopted a limited number of accounts in use at a time. Just another way to block your sibling from enjoying your perks!

Save

Source: @BeaMiller

18) Blocking The Receiver

Now, this was a game-changer! Not most people resorted to blocking the receiver since that was pretty much the ultimatum; you either turn in this remote or you’re not changing the channel. It’s definitely one of the strongest moves in the sibling rivalry playbook and one that will continue to impact sibling lives.

Save

Source: Jonathan Howes

19) Sharing Is Caring

We were always taught that sharing is an invaluable trait, but was that always the case? Most siblings have a tantrum when they find out they have to share anything that belongs to them. It’s best to instill the values of selflessness and caring while they’re young in order to dissuade any acts of selfishness or greediness.

Save

Source: Ben Grey

20) Being The Younger One

It takes an entire childhood to know that being the younger one isn’t what it’s cracked out to be. Your older sibling is constantly heckling you and believing they are better than you no matter what. Odds are, if your sibling is significantly older, then physical development does play a factor and you suddenly seem even less inclined to believe in yourself. As a younger sibling, the best thing to do is believe in yourself and that you’ll excel your older sibling one day.

Save

Source: @ramen00dlehoe

21) Nothing To Say

One of the most awkward feelings being raised with an older sibling is when our comebacks were just not good enough. It’s that moment you think you have something witty to use, and then suddenly fall flat on your face from how corny it was actually delivered. That’s when the response “so” comes into play over and over again since nothing is more annoying than constantly repeating your unoriginal response to the situation.

Save

Source: @disneyy_dailyy

22) I’m Shocked You Would Think That

Acting school starts early if you’re not an only child. It’s important to know when to act alarmed so that you can avoid suspicion of yourself in any plot to sabotage your sibling. It’s better to act it out all the way than to admit your fault. No matter what you choose, acting surprised is a move that all children with siblings have in their back pocket.

Save

Source: @SangomaNunu

23) “It Wasn’t That Hard!”

The usual “I didn’t hit you hard” response after a playful scene turns into a painful nightmare. It doesn’t really matter if it was a hard hit, but what matters is that it caused a rather sad reaction. Most kids don’t’ know their own strength and the consequences of their actions. It’s important to point out when they go past the point of no return in order to avoid violence at any cost.

Save

24) Teasing Around

Teasing between siblings is one of the most savage things that can occur. Reason being is because there seem to be points where the teasing has no end and it just results in constant bickering between two parties. As a parent, be sure to monitor this type of behavior closely because once it becomes unsupervised, it can return with greater force.

Save

Source: @RsElej

25) Twin Day

Moms have a field day when it’s time to dress up her little ones. They have so much fun that odds are you’ve shared a matching set with your sibling if you both grew up in the same house. It’s a little embarrassing to look back on, but it is also a really adorable sight to behold. Thankfully, these occasions tend to typically be for the holidays, so going to school and matching wouldn’t be in this conversation.

Save

Source: BuzzFeed-cookie0887

26) The older sibling always have it “worse”

Older siblings love to complain about how they had it stricter growing up. Everything was more enforced and regulated when they were the small ones around. Now the rules of the house have gotten less strict and of course, they always give the baby sibling flack for having it easier.

Save

27) Hide The Goods

Secretly stealing food and hiding it was another childhood go-to if you had a sibling. You always loved seeing their face when their favorite snack foods were gone and by your hands. It was tough to hide the food since your sibling had all the ways to find out your hiding spots, since they had used it before you.

Save

Source: Twitter

28) Hug Of Peace

Hugging it out was just another phrase for throwing the white flag. This was the point where, as siblings, you never wanted to get to. It’s almost as if admitting defeat and letting the other armed forces win. It’ll be a stiff hug in the middle, but only to send the right message that while the battle may be finished, the war is certainly not yet over.

Save

Source: @queenbritttany

29) I Need To Use The Bathroom!

Ah yes, the bathroom. When things start to get spicy, another battleground for sibling rivalry opens up. Don’t be tempted to pick your bathroom as your poison if you can’t stand the smell of a lone, floating poop or hot water shutoff courtesy of your sibling.

Save

Source: @milliondollarlux

30) No Such Thing As Peace And Quiet

Is it possible to get away from your sibling when on vacation? Short and long answer: no, you can’t. Sharing the same bed, eating on the same side of the table, and even using the same bathroom affords children with siblings no alone time at all. It’s constantly being surrounded by your older sibling through thick and thin.

Save

Source: @umarhariz

31) The Unwritten Rule

If there is one thing a good sibling will always do, it’s provide toilet paper at your darkest hour. Just yell their name in any bathroom and trust us, they’ll come running with the mentality to want to prank you. Only when they find out you need toilet paper do they realize it’s best to help you since they don’t want to get caught up on the receiving end with you leaving them empty handed one day.

Save

Source: Oleg Sidorenko

32) Snitches Get Stitches

Getting told on is completely embarrassing and hard news to take. It’s knowing that you’re officially walking the plank to your doom for committing a terrible mistake. There’s nowhere to hide now and instead, it’s time to hear the fat lady sing on this one.

Save

Source: @ilovemariohara

33) Special Time With Parents

Getting that special time with a parent reassures you that you’re the golden child despite what anyone else thinks. Let your older sibling think they’ve won it all. Meanwhile, you get to sleep on your parent’s bed as a perk, get first bid on food, and get the best gifts during Christmas and your birthday. This is what makes having another sibling worth it sometimes.

Save

Source: @mouseratstan

34) Name That Child

Having more siblings makes it harder to identify who is who. Just imagine having twins or triplets and then suddenly confusing one baby for the other! It totally happens and as a parent, we learn through our mistakes by simply name-calling and practicing. Just as long as this behavior doesn’t continue as the kids develop in order to avoid a sad reaction from one of them.

Save

Source: @RasanKuvly

35) Scoot Over!

Calling dibs on the front co-pilot seat, a.k.a. “shotgun”, is a tradition as old as time. It’s also a brutal game of push and shove until one sibling gets crowned sitter of the front passenger seat. The “shotgun” game is very much alive in today’s world and it gets pretty serious the younger and more energetic you are.

50+ Tips And Tricks Revealed By Makeup Artists

Published

on

New year, new you! Maybe one of your resolutions this year is to get more enthusiastic about applying your makeup every morning or to try a new eyeshadow shade, or maybe you are just looking for new ways to get the best bang for your buck.

We did the research for you and found a bunch of makeup hacks revealed by actual makeup artists themselves. Hopefully one of these tips will come in handy!

1.) Use the right foundation for your skin type

Use a water-based foundation if you have oily skin. Use an oil-based foundation if you have dry skin. Everyone is different.

2.) You don’t need a lip liner with your liquid matte lipstick

And if anyone tells you that you do, they are a liar. Almost all liquid lipsticks do just fine on their own.

3.) Let your eyelid primer dry before adding eyeshadow

And after the primer dries, coat them with a light, neutral color all over your lid. This will act as a base and will make it easier to blend colors together. If you want a dark color, slowly build it – first with light colors, and then darker. Don’t just go straight from light to dark.

4.) Save your mascara brush

Fun fact: most of the mascara magic actually comes from the brush. So if you found one that really works for you, save the brush when you’re done, clean it, and try using it with a cheaper bottle! It’s really not necessary to spend big bucks on this.

5.) Make your matte, full-coverage concealer look more natural with primer oil or coconut oil

Use just a drop of the oil of your choice and it will make your heavy concealer more radiant, easy to blend, and natural. It also helps with creasing!

6.) Use hairspray to tame full eyebrows

First, spray hairspray on a clean, disposable mascara wand. Then brush your brows up and into the shape you’re going for. If it makes the hair on our head stay in place, it definitely works for the hair on our face!

7.) Wet your brush before applying highlighter

8.) Don’t apply primer with your fingers

It can cause micro-exfoliation, which causes clumps.

9.) Use a matte bronzer to make your eyes look bigger

If you’re doing a full face of makeup but want to keep your eyes bare, put a little bit of matte bronzer in your lid crease and bottom lashline. That way, they will still be bare, but they will also appear bigger.

10.) Never use face soap with sodium laureth sulfate

Makeup artists swear that it dries out your skin.

Using something shimmery usually accentuates those lines.

That way, you will have an easier time cleaning up any fallout from your eyeshadow.

14.) Use scotch tape for the perfect eyeliner wing

Angle it from your eye to your eyebrow for the crispest, cleanest eyeliner wing you’ll ever see. Boom, magic.

15.) Use eyeshadow primer on the lash line

Then sweep eyeshadow on top with a fine liner brush to create a smudge-proof eyeliner. Now if you’re out of eyeliner, you can use your shadows for the same effect!

16.) You can also use a cotton pad

If you use cotton pads to apply your face makeup, use those same pads for your eyeliner! Simply fold it in half and use the straight side to line up with your eye for the perfect sweep. No tape needed.

17.) If you accidentally get mascara around your eyes, let it dry

Wait 5 minutes or so and then swipe it away with a Q-tip. At that point, it should flake off and not smudge.

It’s super unsanitary.

It’s soft and it doesn’t clog pores. What more could you want?

20.) Imagine a line from the outer corner of your eye to the tip of your brow. This is where your eyeshadow should stop.

A lot of times, people make the mistake of not bringing out their eyeshadow far enough. This can actually make the eyebrow look smaller.

21.) If you’re just starting out and want to learn how to contour, put the contour color on a brush or sponge first

It will be harder to blend if you draw it on directly like lines.

22.) Don’t sleep in your makeup

“Skin needs time to breathe and when you’re sleeping, your body is repairing the most. Sleeping in makeup is not only messy, but it causes breakouts, premature aging, and stained bedding. Take care of your skin, loves!”

23.) Don’t recreate the celebrities

“Those looks are made for them, their skin type, skin tone, and face shape. People always come into my shop and request to look like Kim Kardashian and I have to explain to them that it might not work on them and sometimes they even get upset when it doesn’t turn out. Yes, I can do it, but it won’t look good on you. Instead ask for something dramatic like Kim Kardashian or whatever you want but do not ask to look like them!”

24.) Invest in good skin care products

“Your makeup, no matter how much you paid for it, will not look its best when it’s added on top of dry, scaly, splotchy, oily and just plain unhappy skin. Want to get makeup optional skin? INVEST in skin care.”

And look at the wing you drew first while drawing your second one.

The humidity can cause it to alter and go bad before its time, plus toilet germs.

27.) Blend your foundation out onto your neck

“When wearing foundation please blend it out. Put product on your jawline, and blend it out into your neck. Also blend the foundation along the edges of your face out. It’ll help create a natural look and make it less obvious you’re wearing foundation, plus it will visually improve your color match.”

28.) Don’t use stark white concealer under your eyes

“Use an under-eye concealer one shade lighter than your face concealer, not two or three shades. It will give you a naturally bright effect instead of a contrasting white effect, which looks super unnatural.”

This does wonders for people with dry or textured skin and gives a smooth, airbrushed finish.

33.) Stop blowing on your makeup brushes

“I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen people do this and it makes me cringe. Brushes already harbor bacteria if not cleaned and taken care of properly; you blowing on your brushes and getting saliva particles all over it isn’t helping considering you’re applying it directly to your face therefore causing breakouts, clogged pores, etc. If you’ve picked up too much product, just tap it off or give your brush a little shake.”

34.) Use a foundation one shade darker on the outer edge of your face to add depth

35.) If your skin is very oily, apply a light layer of powder after you apply your primer and before you apply your foundation

It’ll give you a smoother look. Also, baby powder works great for baking your face. I use it for everything!

36.) Glowing cheeks that look natural

“”Add your favorite blush to the cheeks before you apply foundation for a glow that looks like it’s coming from beneath the skin. A bright, warm pink at the apple is perfect for any complexion.”

37.) Multi-colors on the cheeks is important

“Apply two shades of blush for the perfect flush of youth. Pink, or anything in the red family should be placed on the apple of the cheek; it will give the effect of blood coming to the surface. Peach, coral, or anything in the orange family should be applied to the highest point of the cheekbone; that gives the effect of heat rising. Finish by bringing a matte bronzer to the skin where sun hits the face (forehead, cheekbone, bridge of nose, and chin).”

38.) Lighten your coverage

“Mixing foundation with moisturizer is an easy way to lighten your coverage options if you already have a fuller coverage foundation.”

39.) Make sure those lashes get coated

“Use the handle of a brush to lift the eyelid at the base of the lashes to roll your lashes up and back; this allows you to wiggle the mascara wand against the base of the lashes and pull through any clumps in a clean and precise manner.”

40.) Don’t be afraid of red

“If you want to find the perfect red for your complexion, try applying one lip color that has the same undertone as your complexion all over the lip: Cool uses cool, warm uses warm. Apply a red with the opposite tone just to the center for a lip that looks full and fantastic.”

41.) Reach for the school supplies

“No. 2 pencils are the perfect graphite shade to sketch in natural eyebrow hairs. Sharpen one to a point and draw in lightly for a finished brow.”

42.) Thicken up watery foundation

“To make foundation thicker, mix in a touch of loose powder. (Be careful not to add too much or it will cake.)”

43.) Chill out and reduce puff

“To reduce puffiness, pop eye lotion in the icebox and apply to lids before eye makeup.”

44.) Find the right lip shade

“Test lipstick on the inside of your fingertip, rather than on the back of your hand. The pad of your finger closely resembles your own lip color, so see which one looks best there, then move to the lips.”

– Kerry Cole,style director of Becca Cosmetics

45.) The power of gold

“Gold powder pigment is a great way to lengthen lashes or brows. Use a clean spoolie brush, toothbrush, or mascara wand, and brush a bronze or yellow gold pigment through a mascared lash or brow for a beautiful effect that adds dimension without looking hard.”

46.) Who knew?

“Halloween is the perfect time to stock up on some unexpected essentials. Fake blood is the ideal blush shade. Add it to the apple of the cheek for any skin tone—it looks like a natural flush of color coming though the skin.”

47.) You better stock up on your next visit!

“Starbucks napkins and disposable toilet-seat covers work just as well as blotting papers.”

48.) If it works, it works!

“As a little girl, I would watch my mother apply egg whites to her face (especially around her eyes) about an hour or two before going out to a special event. She would take one egg, separate it, whisk it until it was frothy, and apply the egg white all over her face and leave it on for 20 minutes. After, she would wash it off with lukewarm water and immediately apply her makeup. The egg white tightens the skin and wrinkles to give you a temporary facelift.”

49.) Who doesn’t want to look younger?

“My favorite ‘look younger’ makeup tip is to first use a luminizer in the inner corner, then swoop it with a fan brush underneath the eye. This brightens the face.”

– Deanna Melluso, celebrity makeup artist

50.) Pucker that pout

“Use a flesh-toned eyeliner to outline the lips along the Cupid’s bow. This reduces the chance of feathering and makes lips appear fuller.”

51.) Better safe than sorry

“If you can’t find a perfect shade, buy one that’s slightly darker than your skin and one that’s slightly lighter, then fine-tune the color yourself.”

– Lora Arellano

52.) Strange but effective

“Pull your bottom lip down and look at the inside color. Pick a lipstick shade that’s either lighter or a bit deeper but along the same tone as the inside of your lip. Oh, and don’t do this in public.”

– Maggie Ford Danielson, Benefit global beauty authority

53.) Buff, buff, buff!

“Buff, buff, buff foundation into the skin — quickly, like a whirlwind — with a brush. It ensures the coverage won’t look heavy-handed.”

54.) Instant lip lift

“Apply concealer to the outer corners of your lips to give your lips a lift.”

“Apply a nourishing balm to your eyebrows before going to bed. This will guarantee extra strength and growth—thicker eyebrows in two weeks.”

“What A Dreamboat!” Makeover Transforms Shy Teen After Dramatic Weight Loss

Published

on

Christopher Hopkins, aka “The Makeover Guy” is known for transforming men and women over 40 into the best selves. But in 2019, he took on the task of a teenager.

Little did he know that Phoenix’s makeover would be one of his most powerful.

Teenage trauma

Phoenix found himself in Hopkin’s Minneapolis “appearance studio” after a big weight loss. The previous school year, he weighed in and 250 pounds.

His transformation wasn’t easy.

He managed to lose 100 pounds by counting his macronutrients (think of it as going a step farther than calorie-counting) and working out every day with a personal trainer

That’s a big commitment for a teenager!

But Phoenix is dedicated and fearless. Hence his desire to put his head in the hands of Hopkins for a whole new style.

He’s already a handsome young man (with hair most people covet), but he decided it was time for a change. And if you’ve seen The Makeover Guy’s popular videos, you know his studio is the place to go.

The big chop

It seems pretty obvious that Phoenix is going to end up with a major haircut. After all, why waste your time going to a makeover guru if you’re not going to let him go crazy with the scissors?

And that’s precisely what Hopkins does. Gone is the shoulder-length wavy hair of the “before” Pheoenix. But is he happy?

There’s a big smile on the teen’s face as he runs his hands through his glossy mane. He’s still got hair to die for!

It’s long on top and makes the perfect wave in front. The only problem is that it’s a little too neat for the teen.

We cringed a little when he messed with perfection, but it’s his hair, not ours after all! And the modelesque look just wasn’t entirely jibing with him.

After getting a tousel from Hopkins, things end up in largely the same place, just not so catalog-model-ready. And it still looks great!

Personal style is just that – personal – so Phoenix has to be able to pull off whatever hairstyle he walks out the door with. And we were really impressed with him for speaking up.

A good day

“I had fun today,” Phoenix says after getting a little ribbing from Hopkins.

He admits that he’s normally shy in front of people and we believe it since when he first walked in he seemed less outgoing. But after agreeing to trust his stylist and seeing the results of the makeover, he lives up to his name. Phoenix is reborn!

After one more tweak by Hopkins, the transformation is complete.

It’s a cute moment when the teen keeps messing with his hair only to have Hopkins walk by and “fix” it one more time.

Commenters were over the moon about Phoenix’s makeover.

“Omg that jawline! He’s stunning and what an adorable personality,” said one fan.

Of course, there were lots of comments about his Bart Simpson shirt, but frankly, we think it adds that perfect reminder that he’s still a “kid.”

And like most commenters, we wish we could see him waltz back into high school with his new look!
