Your Ultimate Guide To Eyebrows: There Should Be Two

Mary Kay Independent consultant helps client and unit to understand eyebrow maintenance and products

One of my favorite ways to procrastinate is to get lost on Instagram, specifically makeup tutorials. Over the past few years we have seen something of an eyebrow renaissance, from halo eyebrows to squiggle brows to - yes, this is real - the high heel brows. The latest trend is literally splitting hairs all over my Instagram feed: Fishtail eyebrows.

While I do find these trends somewhat fascinating, I feel we need to come closer to reality. Today I will be sharing the ultimate guide to eyebrows: there should be two.

Your Ultimate Guide To Eyebrows: There Should Be Two

While I will not be giving you a how-to thread eyebrow DIY tutorial, we will review maintenance and products. Thick natural eyebrows are not just for those born with a perfectly carved pair. With proper maintenance and a little know how you can work wonders to achieve the perfect look.

DIY Eyebrow Maintenance

You can easily maintain your brows if you are not into all that waxing or threading. You simply remove the hair that is not in your natural brow shape. If you are not sure of your natural brow shape, take a spoolie brush and comb your eyebrows up revealing the bottom of your brow.

You will be able to see your natural bottom brow line and can clean up any hairs that are outside of it. Then comb your brow hair down to see the top arch. You will do the same thing and clean up any hairs outside of your natural brow arch. Remove any hair in between your eyebrows; no unibrow, please. When cleaning up the front of your brow, be sure to not go past the inner corners of your eyes.

I have naturally long eyebrow hairs, so if you are like me, you may need to trim them. I simply comb them up and trim the hair that is super long. You never want to trim lower than your top brow line when the hair is combed up.





Mary Kay Independent consultant helps client and unit to understand eyebrow maintenance and productsIf you have thinner brows and want to make them thicker, or fill in spaces, the MK Lash & Brow Building Serum would be perfect for you.


Best Eyebrow Products

This is where it can get overwhelming. I know I was overwhelmed until I found exactly what worked for me. There are a lot of different brow products on the market now. You have brow pens, pencils, volumizing gels, pomades, powders, serums, waxes, highlighters, tints, shapers, and more. It's a lot. My best advice is to start with the oldies-but-goodies.

Keep it simple with a brow pencil. Brow pencils are easy to use, travel well, create a natural look, and are the best "starter brow product." When choosing the right shade, always think lighter rather than darker. You don't want sharpie brows.

When using a brow pencil, you want to lightly flick the pencil in the same direction as the hair grows and create tiny little lines. Then brush through your brows with a spoolie brush to blend everything, and you will have a natural looking full brow. If you have brows that don't like to stay perfectly brushed down, then you can set them with a wax or gel. I'm a big fan of brow gels. They are super easy to use and keep my brows from going all wild n' crazy.

If you don't feel like you need to fill in your brows, then a simple comb through with some clear brow gel will give you a perfect brow in one easy step.

Brow pomades and powders will give you a lot of volume and/or can densely fill in your brows if you don't have a lot of hair to work with. These are great to give you a natural looking brow when your brow hair is really light or sparse. They can be a little tricky to work with at first, there is a learning curve with these products, but once you master the technique applying these types of products is super quick.

How to Add Contouring to Your Summer Look


Contouring in my humble opinion is one of the most confusing of all makeup and beauty techniques. If you are anything like me, you constantly find yourself watching tutorials where women practically spackle their faces into diagonal lines, then 15 minutes late emerge looking like an entirely different person. Here is how to add contouring to your summer look.

How to Add Contouring to Your Summer Look

First off let’s be clear, that is not what we are aiming for here. Today we will focus on using contouring as a tool to enhance your natural features and possibly cheating the ones you wish you have! Without looking like Elvira.

What To Consider Before Contouring

There are two basic things to consider when learning to contour your face. You should select your contour based on your desired look and your skin tone! As a rule, choose a contour two shades darker than your overall skin tone, and a highlighter two shades lighter.

Contour Choices Based on Look

For a Bold Look: Creams
Try stick and palettes for a dramatic look.
Apply your foundation with a sponge to create a smooth even surface
Simply blend in a small amount using a sponge or brush
For a stronger look slowly build up color till you achieve your desired look

For a Polished Look: Powder
Stay away from any contouring powders with shimmer! They must be matte. Also, this is a great option if you have oily skin types.
Apply your foundation with a sponge to create a smooth even surface
Dust with translucent powder then apply the desired amount of color
Blend, blend, blend! (Use a brush, not your fingers)

For a Subtle Look: Liquid
For natural dimension try a liquid (Matte) bronzer.
Apply your foundation with a sponge to create a smooth even surface
Using your fingers press to the desired areas and lightly blend with a sponge
Finish with a translucent powder

Contour Tones by Skin Tone


Contour: NO SHIMMER!!
Fair-Medium Skin--- Taupes and Grayish Browns
Dark Skin--- Warmer, Cognac Colors

Highlighter:
Fair Skin--- Champagne Tones
Light-Medium Skin---Pink Champagne Tones
Olive Skin---- Golden Tones
Dark Skin--- Terracotta Tones

Contouring for Your Face Shape

Once you have determined the correct contour for your skin tone, you will have to determine your face shape. To make the most of your individual features, you will need to know where to contour and where to highlight. Here is the breakdown of contouring for each face shape!

Diamond:

How To File An IRS Form 1040 Extension?

Mary Kay Director filing her IRS Form 1040 extension jointly with her husbandDo You Need More Time to File Your Personal Taxes? Get more time to file with a tax extension. Tax Day is looming in the not so distant future, and you are running out of time. The deadline for filing your tax return is precisely one week from today!! April 17th is the deadline for filing your Federal Income Tax! Need more time? Here is how to file an IRS Form 1040 extension.

How To File An IRS Form 1040 Extension?

Maybe you don’t have the paperwork you need, or you could be struggling to balance everything on your plate, and you know you won’t have the time to prepare your tax return before the deadline. Well, fear not! If you are not ready to file your IRS Form 1040, you can file Federal Income Tax Extension Form 4868 to get a 6-month personal tax extension.


What is Form 4868?

IRS Form 4868 is an extension formally titled the Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return. If you submit your application to the IRS by midnight on April 17, 2018, you will receive an additional six months to file your tax return without incurring IRS penalties.


What You Will Need To File An Extension?

Smiling young Mary Kay Independent beauty consultant filing her IRS Form 1040 extension jointly with her husbandThe first thing you should know about filing an individual tax return extension is that “timely filing” rules apply. So you will need to e-file your forms by midnight on April 17th. If you file after this, the IRS will not accept your tax extension application.

Assuming you file on time, you will automatically receive six months to file your return to the IRS, and you will not subject to late-filing penalties. You will have until October 15th, 2018 to file your tax return.


To file for a tax return extension, you will need:
  • Your name and address
    • (Spouse’s name is filing jointly)
  • Your Social Security Number (SSN)
    • (Spouse’s SSN if filing jointly)
  • Estimated total tax liability for the 2017 tax year
  • Total 2017 tax withholdings and tax payments 
  • Estimated tax payment owed to the IRS (if any)

Remember that Form 4868 is an extension of time to file and not an extension of time to pay any owed taxes to the IRS. If you expect to owe any amount to the IRS, you will need to pay this amount when you file your tax return extension.


Where Can I File An IRS Form 1040 Extension?

Our sister product, ExpressExtension is an IRS-Authorized e-file provider with a simplified interview-style process. Their cloud-based software will allow you to apply and transmit your IRS Form 1040 extension safely and securely from any connected device.

Contrary to popular belief, filing for an IRS Form 1040 extension does not trigger an audit. Millions of Americans file for an extension on their tax returns every year. Apply for an automatic six-month extension and escape any late-filing penalties.




File Your Extension in Minutes

How To Apply Flawless Foundation Like A Pro

Mary Kay consultant helping client find the perfect foundation
Foundation, the bread, and butter of the makeup world…. But likely the most anxiety-inducing product in your client's makeup bag. For instance, if you make an eyeliner mistake it isn’t smudged it’s smoky. But when foundation is done wrong, there is no hiding it. Here is how to apply flawless foundation like a pro every time.

How To Apply Flawless Foundation Like A Pro

Faking flawless skin is easier than you might think, use these steps to conceal dark circles, pimples, wrinkles, and so much more. Trust us when we say that your clients will thank you for this helpful advice.

Step 1: Choose The Perfect Color

Check your client's foundation color on their jawline and check it in the daylight before letting them buy. The perfect foundation will disappear without blending. If your clients are still unsure about the color allow them to take home a sample and compare it to their current foundation.

We recommend selecting a tone one shade lighter than their skin tone. This will help blend, and the powder tends to darken the skin ever so slightly.

Step 2: Don’t Skip Prep

If your clients want a flawless look, then they will need to start with a perfect canvas. Which will require clean and moisturized skin. Once your clients apply moisturizer allow it to sink in by waiting five minutes before applying foundation.

Primer is not a skippable step if your client’s makeup needs to last all day. Also, the Mary Kay® Foundation Primer Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15* not only serves as a foundation primer it will protect your skin from harmful razes and minimize pores.

Step 3: Foundation Application

If your clients want a light and natural foundation look they can simply use their fingers. Or for more coverage, we recommend using the Mary Kay® Blending Sponge for a smooth and even application. Then use a brush to cover dark under-eye circles, usually right below the inner and outer corners of your eyes.

If your client’s skin needs a little extra help just dab on a tiny bit of concealer. But remember a little of Mary Kay® Perfecting Concealer goes a long way and will last all day.

Step 4: Luminous Translucent Powder

Mary Kay director teaching client how to apply flawless foundation Suggest the Mary Kay® Translucent Loose Powder to your clients because unlike matte or colored finishes it won’t suck the life out of their face. Translucent powders will lighten their skin giving off a healthy glow while controlling shin.

Use a Mary Kay® Powder Foundation Brush to brush powder on in a W motion. Start at your client hairline on one side, swoop down to their cheekbone, up the bridge of the nose, down to the other cheek, then up again in the opposite direction.

The Six Types of Consultants and How to Motivate Them


As you are growing your unit, you will encounter a lot of different personalities. Learning how to motivate your consultants is an area in which you’ll never stop growing. Consider the six types of consultant and how to motivate them. By understanding their motivation for joining your unit, as well as their short and long-term goals, you are more likely to build a stronger bond with your new unit members and help them achieve their goals.


The Six Types of Consultants and How to Motivate Them


1. The Career Consultant

This new consultant has big dreams and wants to make a full-time future with MK. She is a hard worker and will work aggressively to build up her personal brand. Her motivation for joining is to have financial freedom without working 40 hours a week for someone else.

Keep this type of consultant in the “know” with leadership opportunities and allow her to grow her skills with sponsoring. She thrives on challenges and incentives, so it is a good idea to be constantly setting short and long-term goals to push her along, especially when starting out.

 

2. Short Term Consultant

A short-term consultant has a specific goal in mind. She could be saving money for a vacation or a particular event or purchase. She will work hard consistently until she reaches her goal.

To keep her motivated and interested in the MK opportunity regularly inform her of ways she can maximize her sales and earnings with specific promotions. If you help her to achieve her goals in a flash, she is more likely to stay in your unit longer. Let her know there is always another promotion coming down the pipe. 


3. The Part-Time Consultant

This type of consultant is most likely someone who already has a full-time position and is looking for additional work on the side. Or they could be a college student unable to take on a typical part-time job with their class load.

This type of Independent Beauty Consultant will dedicate a certain number of hours to their business. They will maintain a constant part-time income, but will only cross that line when convenient. My suggestion is to get to know this type of consultant even though they will be hard pressed to attend all of your unit meetings. Try working a challenge or incentive into their timeframe. If you understand their schedule or their personal life, this will work to motivate them easily.

4. The Discount Advantage Consultant


This type of consultant love the brand, and she wants it all. She likely joined your unit for the discount on products and will maintain her active status just to purchase the latest products. I can admit that I have worked for several companies only for the employee discount.

To motivate this type of consultant, you will need to push the discount advantage and encourage her to share the love with her friends and family. She is already an advocate for the brand just because of her devotion to MK. Keep her well informed when new products are released, and hype up flash sales so she can maximize her discount.


5. The Socialite Consultant

A social lite consultant joined your unit to meet new people, make lasting friendships, and feel a part of a larger community. She loves social activities and thrives with recognition but is less motivated when it comes to her financial outcomes.

Team meetings, training sessions, and social events are great ways to motivate socialite consultants. Also be sure to highlight and recognize her achievements.

 

6. The Socially Aware Consultant

As you all know by now is that Mary Kay Ash founded her company based on “God first, family second, career third.” This model is what makes MK so different from other organizations that put profit and success above all else. So this type of consultant joined your unit because she believes in the brand and what it stands for.

This type of consultant is a fantastic brand ambassador and will consistently stand behind the mission and values of MK. While she hosts parties, she will gladly share the mission to others.

One way to quickly encourage her is to invite her to fundraisers and other socially conscious activities.



7. Combination Consultants

It should not be surprising that most consultants are a combination of these different types. But when you understand the types of consultant and how to encourage them it is much easier to create targeted activities and training opportunities. Communicate specific goals to your consultants and watch your unit blossom and grow.

10 Makeup Essentials Every Woman Needs In Her Wardrobe


If your clients are wondering “What makeup do I need,” here is your answer. These are the ten makeup essentials every woman needs in her beauty wardrobe. Present and consider these items the little black dresses of the cosmetics world.


10 Makeup Essentials Every Woman Needs In Her Wardrobe


1. Tinted SPF

Every successful makeup look starts with a good foundation, but that doesn’t mean you have to use one. For many of you clients complexions, a semi-sheer tint will give just the right amount of coverage and glow.
Recommend a tinted SPF cream, such as Mary Kay® Tinted Moisturizer Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 20*. This tinted moisturizer is built for all-day wear when your clients are looking for a more natural and vibrant look.

If shine is an issue, recommend adding a translucent setting powder to this list.

2. Perfecting Concealer

If your clients are not already using a concealer, it’s to get them on board. A little weight concealer is perfect for covering dark under-eye circles and blemishes. Try Mary Kay® Perfecting Concealer as a long-lasting and lightweight formula.

3. Neutral Blush

Everyone loves a nice healthy glow and recommending a neutral shade of blush that won’t clash (or overwhelm) your clients is a must. A neutral blush is in my humble opinion the ultimate makeup bag workhorse. Not only will Mary Kay®’s Mineral Cheek Color (Sunny Spice) accentuate your clients bone structure it will give your clients a natural glow.

4. Highlighter

Don’t let your clients skip this step because the results are subtle. Having well-placed highlights can make all the difference between average and stunning. Swipe aluminizing power or pen over your client's cheekbones, the corners of their eyes, and cupid’s bow for an instant boost.

If your clients struggle with oily skin, I recommend not using a highlighter with shimmer or sparkles.

5. Mascara

I am sure you don’t have to tell your clients the difference a few swipes of mascara can make. Try recommending MK’s Lash Intensity® Mascara.

Check it out: 10 Mind-Blowing Hacks For Luscious Lashes Every Time.

6. Eyeshadow Palette

For a quick smokey eye, show your clients the perfect eyeshadow palette for any occasion. Mary Kay®’s Bare Palette. Depending on your client's complexion help them select three colors: a medium shadow for the lid, a darker brown for the crease, and a lighter tone for their brow bone.


7. Eyeliner

When your clients want their eyes to pop a gel or liquid liner is the only way to go. Your clients can let out there artistic side with Mary Kay® Gel Eyeliner With Expandable Brush Applicator or play it safe with Mary Kay® Liquid Eyeliner Pen.

8. Lip Color

There is a very subtle difference between your client's natural lip color and barely-there lip color, but a healthy glow will pull together any ensemble. For this, I would recommend an MK gloss that matches your client's lip color.

9. Pop of Color

Whether your clients prefer to play up their lips or eyes, a pop of color can transform any look from day to night in a flash. Depending on their preference recommend a standout eyeshadow or a Russian red lipstick.

10. Makeup Remover and Cleanser

Relaxing and unwinding from a long day starts with removing your makeup. It can not be stressed enough how important it is for your clients to remove their makeup before going to sleep.

Your clients could be doing extensive damage to their skin during the night if they are not equipped with the right products to remove day-old makeup. I recommend Mary Kay® Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover, it is hypoallergenic, oil-free and is suitable for both sensitive skin and eyes.

Be sure to stress this to your clients. Make this apart of your client's nightly skin care ritual. Remove makeup and then recommend a deep moisturizing lotion so their skin can breathe.


Makeup Essentials and Beauty Basics

Any style guru will preach the gospel of well-fitted jeans and a little black dress to pull together any wardrobe. So naturally, you will preach the same principles for your client’s makeup bag. While your clients might not need or want an extensive cosmetic collection, these items are a beauty must-haves.

Our goal at UnitWise is to provide you with expert advice to successfully ai your client and grow your customer base. Whether you are seeking beauty tips and tricks or business management advice, we are here to help you grow your MK business.

Expert Advice for Quickly Building Your Unit

Growing mary kay director growing her unit

As a successful Unit Leader, you need enthusiasm, passion, and confidence, but you already have those things so what else does it take to grow your unit? Here is expert advice for quickly building your unit!

Expert Advice for Quickly Building Your Unit

Since you have worked hard to hit and exceeded your monthly goals consistently, now it is time to continue your journey by climbing the MK ladder. Achieving camaraderie and building a strong MK Unit is hard work, but one you can achieve! You must have a vision, focus on recruiting, constantly generate leads, prepare your Unit for success, acknowledge your Unit’s achievements, and build on forward momentum. 
 

1. Visualize Your MK Unit Growing!

Before you contact anyone, you need to create a vision for what you want to achieve. Having a clear and concise vision is imperative for setting goals for your unit and yourself. For obvious reasons you need to know where you are going before you get started. As a leader, it is your responsibility to call people to action by your vision of the future.

2. Constantly Recruit New Members Into Your MK Unit!

Mary Kay Director relaxing having a cup of coffee before managing her unitI understand that getting your first recruit can feel like an uphill battle, but the key to obtaining your first unit member is to openly share the opportunity and point out how MK can benefit them. The best way to get someone to consider the opportunity seriously is to address them as an individual. What would peak their interest? The product discounts, work flexibility, or MK’s Christian message?

The keyword for recruiting: Patience. The unspoken truth is that it could take up to 12 separate conversations for someone to take the leap and sign up. Remember to answer any and all questions honestly without applying pressure and always remain patient.

3. Continuously Generate Leads For Your MK Unit!

Seek out talented people you wish to work with and invite them to learn more by attending a virtual party or by joining your next MK party. Have your attendees play a game that encourages them to ask you questions about your job instead of reciting a well-rehearsed pitch. As I have stated in the previous step to find fun, talented, motivated people you wish to work with will require a focused strategy of continued asking and following-up.

4. Prepare Your MK Unit For Success!

Growing your team and ensuring everyone is on the same page is an essential part of your daily schedule. Having a private Facebook group set for your team is one way to achieve this or use MyUnitBuzz to manage, track sales, and provide encouragement or aid unit members in distress. Alternatively, you can post messages to recognize the achievements of your unit members. Whichever method you decide to implement always remain approachable, engaging, helpful, and provide training tools that will help them succeed.

Also, consider scheduling a monthly conference call. Every UnitWise account member has access to our free conference calling feature. Connecting with your team over a call helps to further your relation, and it is an opportunity to bounce ideas off each other. Find what works and what doesn’t when it comes to setting up parties and selling in general.

5. Acknowledge Your MK Units’ Achievements!

Acknowledge the achievement, efforts, and progress of your unit members. Use MyUnitBuzz to post a shout out to your unit or create a fun graphics to post on Facebook. Supplying various training materials or publish a video of you explaining how to boost your confidence and sales. When you unit members are happy and feel they are well trained they are more likely to share their experience and encourage their friends and family to join in.

Also, focus on what your unit members do well and not on the negative. This way they will take your advice as constructive criticism and not an attack on their performance. Successful leaders are caring and empathetic you are an influencer in the lives of your unit members, and it is important to act as such.

6. Build Your MK Unit On Momentum!

Challenge your team with monthly sales goals, sent cute letters with motivational quotes or a small gift. Think about what brings a smile to your face and make it your mission to pay it forward and you will receive everything you gave tenfold from your growing unit.

As your unit members work hard throughout the month in pursuit of their monthly goals be sure to recognize and celebrate their achievements. No matter if it is a significant or minor achievement be sure to take the time each month to post a shout out to every member of your unit.

10 Mind-Blowing Hacks for Luscious Lashes Every Time

Bold beautiful lashes with extensions

While some styles may come and go big beautiful lashes are always in and are a great addition to any look. Your clients don’t have to master falsies to sport bold lashes. We have put together 10 mind-blowing hacks for luscious lashes every time. With a little know how you will be ready to rock your natural lashes in a big way.

10 Mind-Blowing Hacks for Luscious Lash Every Time

What you will need:

1. Bend the Wand
As you pull the mascara wand out the tube and bend the tip, so it is perpendicular to the handle. This will make it easier to control and get to the harder to reach areas, like the lashes in the inner corner of your eye.

2. Clean off Excess Mascara
New mascara can transfer a lot of extra product on the wand for the first few uses and this causes clumpy lashes. So before you apply the first coat glide the wand over a clean napkin to remove any excess.

3. Apply Layers
Layer waterproof mascara on top of your choice of MK mascara. The waterproof formula will help to hold the curl and keep your mascara from smudging throughout the day.
You can get beautiful lashes naturally using Mark Kay masacara

4. Prevent “Spider Lashes”
Use a metal-toothed lash comb after applying mascara to avoid spidery clumps. Simply apply a coat of mascara, wait a few seconds for the layer to dry then gently brush through lashes

5. Condition Lashes Daily
Just like your hair, your lashes need a little TLC. Mary Kay® Lash Primer will stimulate lash growth and make your mascara last longer.

6. Essential Tools
A lash curler is a must for creating luscious lashes every time. MK’s lash curl will create a beautiful upward curl and with a gentle motion for maximum results. Be sure to curl lashes before applying mascara, not after.

7. Wait Between Layers
Exercise a little patience between applying coats of mascara. Waiting a few moments between layers will allow the mascara to set and build upon each layer instead of clumping.

8. Heat Lash Curler
Hold blow dryer up next to your lash curler for about 5 seconds. The heat works the same way as it does with your traditional curling iron, giving you full lashes that last all day. But be careful not to overheat the curler.

9. Bottom Lashes
If you want well-rounded and luscious lashes don’t skip your bottom lashes. Hold your wand vertically and gently brush the base of your bottom lashes making them appear fuller.

10. Revive Old Mascara
Soak your tube of mascara in a cup of hot water to revive mascara. This is also a helpful tip for getting the last little bit left in the tub. You can also add a drop or two of saline solution to re-wet the formula.
