Android Tips & Suggestions

Some Helpful Hints

1. Save Often
Better safe than sorry, as the saying goes. Its always better to save often because you never know when your battery might run out, or you drop your phone and the battery pops off. And there is always the dreaded force close, which can happen at anytime due to various states of your phone. If you have many apps running at the same time, Android will eventually run out of resources. (battery, memory, processing power, etc.)

2. White It Out
You can use a white color like an eraser. This allows the size, edge, and opacity to be adjustable. This is probably one of the most important tips for getting great results with Glamzy. The brush functionality is limited, so why not just use your base color to erase color. I usually use one of the whites found in the eye shadow, or go back to my foundation to cover up a mistake.

3. Flip Your Phone
Don't be afraid to turn your phone upside down or sideways to get a better view of what you're doing. When you're trying to do some detail work it may be best to just flip your phone around to see what you are doing.

4. Blend Baby Blend
Create soft blends, highlights, and gradients for depth. For those of you who are professionals, you already know this stuff, but don't forget that it works the same on a digital face too. In fact, it maybe more important when making a flat surface look 3D.

5. Let There Be Light
Turn your phones brightness all the way up. Its common for mobile users to have their phones brightness as low as possible to preserve battery life, but when working with Glamzy, The Brighter The Better. Having your screens brightness up will allow you to see the colors better, and give a better idea of what's going on with your blending. It will also make the subtle colors more visible.

6. Eye Popping
Try different eye colors for extra pop. Be experimental, find out what colors best accent the look you've created. Or use more subtle color if you want the makeup to be the center of attention.

7. Shimmer & Shine
Glitter works best with a brush size of 20, though we have seen some really neat canvases which made use of a smaller brush. When using a brush size of 20 the glitter is allowed to spread out more and won't appear clumpy. But, then again, if clumpy is your look, go for it!
