5 Must have makeup brushes in your vanity

Hi everyone, welcome back

Every beauty enthusiast knows that it’s important to have good makeup brushes in their beauty arsenal. Today, I’m showing you my 5 must-have makeup brushes;

 

Foundation brush- One of the most ideal method for applying foundation is by using a foundation brush. Using a brush for applying foundation ensures a smooth and even application, which looks natural.

Concealer brush- As the name suggests, a concealer brush is used for concealer application.

 Blusher Brush- Use the right brush for the right job! The Blusher Brush defines cheekbones and is perfectly angled for precise and defined blush placement.

Powder brush- Apply the brush on your face with a smooth action, without giving much pressure into your face. Use a little round movement for the best possible move and finishing. Make sure it’s big and make sure it’s fluffy!

Makeup look for glasses

Hi everyone , welcome back …..

Makeup application is quite a handful for most women. Add a pair of eyeglasses into your makeup can be quite an impossible feat for many. However, wearing glasses does not mean that you should avoid wearing makeup altogether. What you need to do is to find the makeup tips that will help create the makeup look that’s best for you.

Most women wearing glasses think that the best way to do their eye makeup is to keep it simple. For your information, bold and striking eye makeup would work well for you too. Achieve a cat eye using your liner  and opt for eye-catching eye shadow colour. When choosing an eye shadow shade, it is best that you take into consideration the color of your frame.

 

 

Most women who wear glasses think that they will never ever be able to pull off the smokey eyes. For your information, achieving smoky eyes is possible. There are just some things that you can do to successfully pull it off.

If you think that your glasses have made your eyes look smaller, you can make your eyes look bigger by applying liner all around your eyes.

Tips : 

Eye shadow – Without extending from the crease of the eyelid, start from the inner corner of the eye and go towards the outside. To create a striking look, use a darker eye shadow on the fringes of the lid.

Mascara – Curl up your lashes with help of an eye lash curler and while applying mascara focus on the roots instead of the ends. This will ensure that your lashes don’t touch your glasses.

 

 

 

 

Here are some of the products I used for this makeup;

 Eye shadow pallet Stila

 Lip liner 374 intense plum L’Oreal

Lipstick Rouge volupte YSL

Mascara Lash sensational Maybelline

Gel eye liner super shock Avon

Garnier skin active micellar cleansing Gel water

Hi everyone , Welcome back …..

The new Garnier Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Gel Wash claims to remove all makeup while cleansing and soothing the skin with a rinse off formula. Garnier says that this is safe for face, eyes and lips while having no perfume and is even suitable for sensitive skin. The packaging is very similar to the Micellar Water as you can see and I really like that they decided to do a pump on this as it makes it much easier to dispense the product and apply to the face.

In one easy step it cleanses skin and removes makeup all over the face , even on lips and eyes. Perfectly clean and refreshed skin without rubbing.

How to use : Apply to a wet face. foam up with water and massage gently in circular motions on face focusing on lip and eye area. Rise off.

I Love it because it’s simple and does its job perfectly, does’t cause any imperfections and remove all the makeup excess……

I use Garnier products for a while and I’m happy with it.

Thanks 😉

Makeup – Seven steps to Perfection

Hi everyone , Welcome back

Beautiful, flawless skin is something supermodels are born with, Right? Wrong. Pair a few carefully chosen products with the right tools and techniques and make it your birthright too.

Image result for makeup tips

Application –Start with clean, well – moisturized skin, allowing the product time to skin in. For full coverage, dot foundation on the forehead, nose, chin and cheeks.

Blending – Blend foundation using your fingers . pressing and patting lightly into your skin, your makeup will look natural and healthy.

Concealer – Using a small brush or your finger, dot concealer around the inner and outer corners of your eyes. Gently press and blend into skin with your ring finger  but don’t rub in, as this will ‘drag’ delicate under eye skin. Best it you apply over your foundation, so that you can even out your skin tone.

Cover up – Hide any other blemishes that show through your foundation by dotting concealer with a sponge or small brush in tricky areas, such as under the jawline or around the nose. Pat it on with your finger to settle it on the skin.

To set Eye Makeup – To set concealer and foundation under and around the eyes. lightly dust them with a small, fine brush dipped in loose powder. Be careful not to apply to much; excess powder will only emphasize fine lines.

To set foundation and concealer – Use translucent powder that complements your foundation and won’t rob your skin of its natural glow.

Checks and balances – Keep an eye on your makeup throughout the day. Use a lighter formulation in summer or carry a stick foundation for easy touch-up. Avoid over-powdering if you don’t want to look caked. For a matte finish, balance out with moist lips or eyes.
