Cheeks / Blush application

Hi everyone, welcome back

Applied right, blusher gives a healthy flush. It energizes a tired face in seconds and creates wicked cheekbones.

The plethora of colours available makes choices difficult, but sticking to rosy pinks and peaches works well for most women. These shades enhance natural skin tone.

The point of blusher is to add colour to the face, not to reshape it!

You have so many different ones in the market: 

Powder blush – Easy to control and blend, it’s the most popular choice, especially for oil skin … 

Cream blush – good for dry and sun- damaged skin 

Gel Blush – Is great for giving a natural – looking glow to bare skin. 

Application :

Find the apple of your cheeks – Simply smile. Blush looks best when applied right on top of the cheekbones.  

Starting at the point on your cheek directly below the middle of your eye. If you mistakenly apply too much blush, wipe the excess off with a tissue before you blend. 

Blend the blush Swirl the colour onto your cheeks in circular, outward motions and blend upward towards your temple, keeping it fuller in the cheek area. 

 

Common mistakes:

  • Blush that is too shimmery can leave you looking ashen and grey. 
  • Not blending enough can result in a horizontal stripe across cheeks. 
  • Muddy or grey tones can leave the skin looking dirty. 
  • Blue and purple tones can make the skin look bruised.

Revlon colorstay crème eyeshadow 

Hi everyone, welcome back

For an everyday, fast makeup look you can’t beat cream eyeshadow. For a speed and ease application, cream eyeshadow are the best.

This is a Luxurious, longwear crème eyeshadow with a pro-inspired built-in-brush designed for easy, mess free application.

These shadows are easy to blend and super long-wearing. One thing I appreciate is how the cream gives you enough time to blend and layer it before drying up.

I’ve the shade 705  is a true champagne colour with slightly warm undertones. It’s slightly shimmery, but not glittery. I consider it a satin finish.

One layer of colour gives a very natural look, the next layer is a spectacular glamour makeup.

So my overall thoughts are that Revlon colorstay  creme eyeshadow are wonderful! The formula is light weight, super blendable and lasts really well. And the best of all is it doesn’t crease at all, not even in hot, sweaty days. This eye shadow become my new favourite cream eyeshadows from the drugstore.

I definitely like the Revlon Colorstay Creme Eyeshadow

That’s all for today!

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.

TOP 5 TIPS FOR LIPS 

  • If you decide a lipstick is too bright for you once you’ve got it on, but scrubbing it off will ruin your foundation, mix a bit foundation with Vaseline and smear this over the shade with your fingertip to mute it.
  • Dark, Matt lipsticks sometimes stain the lips. If this happens, rub the lips with olive oil.
  • Light shades , particularly shimmery or frosted ones , will make lips look bigger.
  • Using sheer lipsticks and lip stains is an ideal way for the nervous to branch out into deep shades like plums, raisins and reds.
  • If your lip gloss is too gooey, run an ice cube over your lips. it’ll keep the shine, but stop that sticky sensation.
