How To Apply Eyeshadow

Applying eye shadow is really easy and if you know the tricks of the trade then you can't go wrong. It’s about experimenting with colour and finding out what colours you like. Everyone is different so this is only a guide – feel free to let your imagination come alive.

• It’s always a good idea to start with cleansing and moisturising the face before any make up application. This allows for the perfect canvas, you will get a better end result if you do this.

• Identify your skin colour; does it have pink undertones or yellow undertones? Cool colours such as pink, purple, blue, green (with a blue base) suit pink undertones while warm colours such as yellow, orange, red and green with a (yellow base) suit yellow undertones. This is the time when your imagination can come into play.

• Choose three colours (light, medium and a darker colour) and white for contouring. Keeping in mind what you have decided to wear that day and what really suits you, red maybe fashionable but it’s not for everyone.

• Start applying your lightest colour first all over the lid, up to the eyebrow, don’t forget to blend it and taper or feather the edges to soften the line. Don’t apply to the area just under the outer edge of the eyebrow.
• Next apply your medium colour to the lid only, always remember to blend blend blend, and don’t forget to get in to the crease of the eye, use your finger tips if you have to, you want the colours to mix in with each other.


• You will now have to decide if you have “close” or “wide” set eyes. Look at the space between your eyes.

- Is the space bigger than the size of one of your eyes? Yes – you have wide set eyes.
- Is the space smaller than the size of one of your eyes? Yes – you have close set eyes.
Wide Set
Close Set
• For Wide set eyes your focus is to apply your darker colours to the inner edge of the eye.
• For Close set eyes your focus is to apply your darker colours to the outer edges of the eye. Blending is critical, make the colours blend into one another.

• Once you are happy with the result, there is one last step and that is to add the white. This is placed under the eyebrow at the outer edges, this gives the eye contour and definition.
For a night time look why not apply a dark charcoal colour or a black as your darker colour and bring the shadow just under the eye for a smoky sexy look.

You can now add eye liner and your mascara and you’re ready to go.

Congratulations your now ready to go!
Colour suggestions for white; MISMO white pearl or Highlighter works well.

MSM is known to be highly effective in joint health, muscle recovery, sports nutrition, immune support, and healthy ageing. 

What is MSM?

MSM (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane or Dimethyl Sulfone) is an organic sulphur compound found in all living organisms. It is the purest and most bio-available form of sulphur, one of the essential minerals crucial to life and the regeneration of cells. MSM has traditionally been taken as a food supplement to increase joint health for flexibility and mobility, as well as for strong hair and nails, beautiful skin, and other health conditions from leaky gut syndrome to mild arthritis, osteoporosis, and psoriasis. 

Why do we need to supplement with MSM?

Natural MSM is largely destroyed when our food is processed and can be lost entirely when foods and ingredients are stored for a long period of time. MSM bonds with moisture, so any food which undergoes any sort of dehydration will lack its natural MSM.

For these reasons, and because MSM is so critical for almost every athletic function in active bodies, it is important to consistently supplement with a quality MSM nutritional supplement 

How does MSM work at the cellular level?

Collagen is the principal structural protein holding the skin together and is largely responsible for the skin’s mechanical properties.  Sulphur is integral to the production of collagen and elastin, and MSM is a source of organic Sulphur. 

Approximately half of the body's sulphur content is found in the skin, muscles, cartilage and bones.

How can MSM benefit your skin, hair and nails?

  • Protecting collagen against collagen degrading enzymes
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles by boosting collagen and elastin production
  • Boosting the natural production of Glutathione, one of the body's key anti-oxidants ... as an anti-oxidant, MSM will boost the immune system and reduce pigmentation and cellular damage
  • Acting as an anti-inflammatory agent by reducing the production of cytokines (compounds that cause inflammation)
  • Maintaining skin cell membrane flexibility and permeability, promoting an efficient exchange of nutrients and waste products to help keep skin clear
  • Helping to maintaining the body's pH balance

How can MSM help with joint health and support? 

MSM has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and can be used as a natural alternative to help reduce pain from mild arthritis and osteoarthritis related symptoms.

How does MISMO MSM help with exercise recovery?

Our muscles, skin, bones, organs, and connective tissue all rely on sulphur and without it our bodies can not function properly.  MSM is an important nutritional supplement for anyone living an active lifestyle, as it delivers the sulphur and methyl nutrients which are key to the structure of healthy cells in muscle and connective tissue.

MSM is valued by bodybuilders, strength, and power athletes because it supports healthy and flexible cell structures and can help reduce the inflammation of muscle tissue and can offset muscle soreness and joint pain caused by inflammation.

Where is MSM found and how is it manufactured?

MSM is found in the fluid and tissue of all living organisms. It is present in a variety of foods including raw vegetables, eggs, milk and fish, but is lost through cooking and food processing. One of the richest natural supplies is pine trees and cabbage.

Although MSM is abundant in nature, even the richest natural sources only provide MSM in the level of several parts per million. Commercial extraction of MSM from trees is not possible so a process is undertaken which parallels the natural oxidation that occurs in the marine atmosphere and produces MSM that is chemically identical to that found in nature.

How pure is MISMO MSM?

Every batch of our MSM is rigourously tested by an independent laboratory to ensure the highest quality, minimum 99.99% pure MSM.

    How much MISMO MSM should I be taking?

    An average dose is between 2 to 6 grams daily. Most people take a teaspoon (approx. 4 grams) daily. If more relief is needed, increase the dose slowly. Can be taken in water or juice after breakfast, although there are no rules as to when you should take MSM.

    A word of caution ... some people find if they take MSM late in the day, after 4 or 5pm, they do not sleep as well, as it energises them. This is not a general occurrence but worth mentioning.

    WARNINGS: If taking Warfarin or strong blood thinners, do not take MSM without your doctor's approval. Not to be taken by children without a health professional's advice.  MSM can also interfere with the accuracy of the blood test for liver enzymes by sometimes producing false positive results. It is recommended you cease taking MSM at least 4 days before these blood tests. You can resume after the test.
