Tanika’s Top Ten


Tanika's Top Ten

I recently got published in the new Billabong magazine. Billabong has been a favorite client of mine to work with. They are constantly pushing the envelope when it comes to fashion in the surf industry. It has been such a joy to collaborate with their team.

Tanika’s Top Ten Beauty Tips

1) Definitely waterproof mascara by Loreal. It stays on great, no smudging, comes off easy with soap, and the tube doesn’t dry out fast.

2) Cream cheek and lip color by Stila. You can use it with your fingers, giving you a bit of color in a jiffy, and it also stays on in water really well too. Greaat for the beach.

3) Lipgellee’s by MAC cosmetics. I just love these!! They feel sooooo good on the lips. They give a tint of color for a really natural look or adding it over a lipstick for more pop.

4) A bright green or blue eyeliner pencil. By applying the color in the water line (the inside of the eye) it keeps the look simple and yet still fun!!

5) I also like colored mascara. You can add them to your colored eye pencils or just solo and it’s really cute!!

6) MAC PREP + PRIME. Girls!! You must protect your skin from too much sun!!! This SPF 50 ,that’s right 50, sun screen for the face is so awesome. It’s not clogging to the pores and feels great.

7) Bronzer. A touch of your favorite bronzer any day can add some life to your skin. Especially in the winter when we get that pasty look, and in the summer it adds a little pop to your already sun kissed pretty faces.

8) Loose Pigments by MAC Cosmetics. I use these on all of my Billabong shoots for that smoky look. They are easy to blend and they just melt into the skin. There are so many beautiful colors and they last forever. I suggest getting an extra container and sharing them with a friend. It’s cost effective and you will still have enough to last you a million years!!

9) One of the most asked questions I get from girls is “how do you stop from getting eye shadow under your eye when you use dark colors?” Well, it’s a lot more simple than you would think. Do your eye make-up be for the rest of your face.. Then when you are finished take a Q-tip with some make-up remover on it and clean up under the eye. Easy. Then proceed with your other steps. Voila!

10) Last but not least, HAVE FUN!!!! You are all beautiful and it’s true what your mothers always said to you…”it’s what’s on the inside that counts”.
Much love, T

    Hey Tanika!!

    Have you tried urban decay’s eye shadow potion? it keeps shadows from creasing or fading. If you have ever tried MAC Eye Paints, the difference is that you still see the eyelid for those more natural looks.

    Also, if you like a good base for an all day shoot, try Poise cheek tint from Benefit!

    Thanks for all the tips!! They are wonderful!
