If you’re getting ready to graduate from high school, you may already be thinking about the high-paying job you’re sure to land once you have a college degree in hand. While it’s always a good idea to continue learning, a college degree doesn’t provide the same advantages that it used to when it comes to employment prospects, especially high-paying jobs.

While having a degree is no longer a near-guarantee that you’ll find employment once you graduate from college, you can pursue other kinds of training that will make you employable faster and more affordably. One kind of training that can get you ready for a job quicker and less expensively than pursuing a four-year degree is cosmetology school.

Although images of Wall Street or Silicon Valley may come to mind when you think of high-paying lines of work, the beauty industry is one that generates $50 billion in revenue every year. Yes, you read that right. The beauty industry produces $50 billion in revenue annually.

If you're looking to impress others with your stunning eyes at a social outing, giving yourself glamour eyes is an excellent way to do so. Sadly, many people don't have the slightest idea as to how to give themselves a glamour eye look (or do it properly). Thankfully, we're going to give you some of the tips you'll need to turn heads at your next social outing.

What You'll Need

  • Color Selection -Feel free to use any color for the glamour eye effect, but it's important to have three shades of the same hue to pull it off. For example: A classic smoky eye look can be created with gray or black, but brown and bronze can be used as well. Using a dark smoky color, a medium base color, and a light creamy color is essential for the look, so try to avoid using colors that are too bright. Glamour eyes are meant to accentuate; They are not intended to distract.

 

  • Supplies -What you'll need to achieve the look are: loose powders for blending and pitch black eyeliner for accentuation. You can also use liquid eyeliner, cream, a pencil, cream shadows, or pressed powders. As for applicators, you'll need some good quality brushes including a soft brush for blending and firmer brush for creating darker lines. You will also need eye shadow primer and concealer as a base (before you start working on your glamour eyes). If you happen to make mistakes, keep q-tips or makeup remover on hand to make corrections.

The 2017 prom season is getting started, and one of the biggest worries for many girls is how they are going to wear their hair. With all the options for different hairstyles, the choices are nearly endless. Some of the most popular selections for prom-goers are braids and updos, because they keep hair looking sleek, keep it out of the way, and allow for an elegance that goes with the soft lighting, nice dresses, and overall feeling a prom is meant to create. Of course, not everyone focuses on that elegance. Some girls want to do something a little bit funky with their hair, and stand out from the crowd.
