L’Oréal true match concealer 

Hi everyone, welcome back

L’Oreal True match is a super blendable correcting concealer, helps hide imperfections, blemishes and evens skin tone, gives a perfect base!

The application is perfect ! The consistency is crazy and is very easy to blend!  However the feel of the product is wonderful and it isn’t cakey ….

I really like this concealer. It’s easy to use, easy to blend and has a really nice finish. It has good coverage and improved the look of my under eyes.

Tips how to apply 

1. To cover dark circles:  
The best and most flattering way to conceal your eye area is to draw a triangle under your eye; blend the concealer to instantly cover dark circles and brighten cheek area.
2. To highlight
Apply to the areas of the face that naturally catch the light.
3. To finish brows:
Apply a concealer that is one shade lighter than the skin tone above and below eyebrows and blend.

Apply with sponges, brushes, or fingertips, in a thin layer and then add more thin layers if necessary.

Planet Spa Revitalising Face Mask Review

Hi everyone, welcome back

Revitalising Harmony Cooling Face Mask.

Revitalize and awaken with extracts from the miracle moringa tree.

  • Relax as the cooling and refreshing gel mask revitalises dull, tired skin.
  • Skin looks repaired and virtually flawless after 3 days.
  • Revitalizes tired skin at the same time as cleans it.
  • Recovers unified tone and healthy skin appearance.
  • Refreshes the skin and restores her youthful appearance.

I love skin masks. Mostly I do not have much time, so I take my mask once or twice a week. The mask has a denser gel consistency, so it gets worse, but it does not matter. It is applied to cleansed skin, which I do not need to mention and leaves it for ten minutes to work. When you apply the mask, after a while it will have a great refreshing and cooling effect, that’s really something. After a hot day, it is an absolutely perfect effect that is so great that you feel like you have ice on your face for a moment. After removing the mask with water and drying the skin, it looks pretty luminous, fresh and is nicely turned off and soothed.

My skin feels so nice afterwards and has a really lovely uplifting refreshing smell.

Apply concealer Correctly

Hi everyone, welcome back

We all would love to have naturally flawless and glowing skin, but we don’t. Like it or not, the stress of hectic work schedules, the build-up of pollution in the environment, poor eating habits and unhealthy lifestyles all take a harmful toll on your skin. Considering how delicate our skin and its complexion are, they are highly sensitive to any and all of these things.

Image result for how to apply concealer

Generally there are two ways of applying concealer. The first method is to dot your whole face, especially the areas you want covered, and gently run your concealer brush over your face blending these dots with your skin in outward strokes. This needs to be done with a light hand and many women simply use their index finger to blend the dotted concealer with their skin, in order to give their whole face an even and neat complexion. Many other women use their concealer to only cover their facial flaws, and hence only dab some on their problem areas alone, blending it slightly with their surrounding skin.

Having established that, it is good to know that such concealers also come in various colours and shades to battle specific skin problems. For example, a green cover stick works the best when applied to red areas of your skin, such as on and around pimples and red veins that can be commonly seen around your nose. A purple shade cover stick works the best on yellow or discolored areas of your skin such as pigmentation marks, while an orange concealer stick generally works the best on areas with a bluish tinge such as those dark under eye patches. Your concealer may also have a blue or pink shade. Blue counteracts orange tones typically caused from uneven or excessive tanning or self-tanning where a pink shade covers green areas such as green veins.

When using a corrector concealer with shades of green, purple, orange, pink or blue, think of the colour wheel. To cancel out a certain color you should use the opposite color on the color wheel e.g. you would use green on red areas because the opposite colour of red is green on the color wheel.

  • The Corrector Concealer Quad is used on areas such as dark circles, pigmentation marks, pimples, scars and under-eye circles.
  • Use your green concealer on any red areas such as red veins or pimples.
  • Use your purple concealer on any yellow areas such as pigmentation marks.
  • Use your orange concealer on areas with a bluish color such as dark under eye circles or patches.

 

There are numerous kinds of concealers available in the market and you must select the one friendliest to your skin. For example, if you have oily skin then a gel based cover stick or water based one would suit you well, and for dry skin a creamier stick would work well.

Summer makeup tips

Hi everyone , welcome back

The summer is here in full swing ! The scorching heat and sweat tends to mess up the makeup. Runny mascara, bleeding lipstick, smudged eyeliner! Sounds frustrating right? This is why it is important to follow some simple tips  to avoid it from melting down. So, today I bring to you some such ways to keep your makeup last longer ….

Cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin and use a protection sunscreen to help lock the makeup in…..

Priming your skin before you apply your makeup will prevent your blush or foundation from melting off when you spend time under the bright sun. Apply primer to clean skin and allow it to dry before adding foundation or powder. You can also apply your foundation with a dampened makeup sponge to allow it to go on sheer without looking thick and cakey. Use even strokes and allow it to dry before applying powder or a finishing spray for a matte look.

You may opt to use a serum since they are lightweight by nature, and one of the ways to Apply makeup for summer, is to use lighter foundation, preferably powder ones for oily to combo skin and liquid for dry skin. If you put plenty of it, there are chances it would peel off sooner, so be light with your application.

Best Summer Makeup Tips You Must See

  • Use light translucent powder this is going to be hit look for summers.
  • Light shades of bronzer on cheek bones gives you an instant glow.
  • Use light brown or nude eye shadow to give them a natural look.
  • Wear sunny bright blush which is going to be easy with your outfits
  • Colors such as golden green, earthy tones can be used with brown mascara to give that extra edge.
  • Use water proof make up.
  • Apply lip balm to protect your lips from the heat and the damage of the sun rays.
  • You can increase the volume of color,vibrant shades of eye and lips but do not go in shiny and shimmer brigade.
  • Consider altering with oil free formula during the summer months.

Eye makeup tips

Hi everyone , welcome back

Image result for eye makeup tips

  • Start with your brows. Defined eyebrows frame your face and bring attention to your eyes. Fill in your brows with an eye shadow that matches the colour of your brows.

 

  • Use a primer or base to make your eyelid as smooth as possible. That way, your eye shadow will stay in place all day.

 

  • To make eyes look big and bold, the trick is to create depth with your eye shadow. First apply a lighter-colored shadow all over your eyelid. Then, take a darker shadow and apply it in the crease of your eye above your lid. This will create an element of dimension. Don’t forget to blend the lid colour with the crease colour to create a seamless look.

 

  • Blend well; you should never be able to tell where one colour begins and ends.

 

  • Choose the right eye shadow colours- Everything from vanilla to almond, to mid- tones like taupe and terracotta, to deep shades, like coffee and smokey grey. Ultimate your own colouring will determine what works best for you.

 

  • Highlight your eyes in the right place; Use highlighter on any part of the eye area that you want to bring out. Put Put a dot on the inner corner of the eye to make eyes look big and bright….

 

  • Don’t skip Eyeliner; Liner helps define shape and open the eye, but it should be done with a delicate line. Apply a gel, pencil, or liquid liner on your top lash line. If you have light eyes, go with a brown eyeliner, while brown eyes will pop with black liner.  For a smokier look, apply a brown or black eye shadow onto your lower lash line with a small eye shadow brush. Just make sure the top and bottom eyeliner meet at the outer corner of your eye.

 

  • Always include mascara; First curl your lashes. Hold the curl for a few seconds, and then let go. Then, brush two to three coats of mascara from the base to the tip of your top and bottom lashes.

MY FAVORITE EYELINERS

Hi everyone, welcome back ….

If every girl has her signature beauty look, mine definitely includes a swipe of eyeliner.

When choosing a liner I look for a brand that stays all day, doesn’t smudge and has an applicator that is easy to use.

For this post I have four eye liners to share with you.

  1. The Lancome Grandiose Liner is completely unique and like no other liner that I’ve come across before. This is the liner that is all about that bend. What I mean by this is that the lid of the actual liner bends at an angle which enables you to create that perfect wing.
  2. The L’Oreal ultra precision liquid eyeliner in a sponge-tipped pen. A long-lasting precise line. Super liner is a liquid eyeliner in a special sponge tipped pen for the creation of fine lines or thick. Colour is applied with precision and ease and dries without smudging.
  3. Bourjois Liner Pinceau Eyeliner fluid formula, enriched with deep intense colour, stays in place all day. Its fine high precision brush applicator enables you to draw a thin or thick accurate line as you wish, so you can create an expert result in just a stroke!
  4. Rimmel Liquid eyeliner -Perfect definition. High colour intensity. This liner produces fine precise lines with one brush stroke. Film forming ingredients bond the colour pigment to the skin for long lasting wear.

Tried any of these? Have other favorites? Let me know down below!
