Mua Pixel Perfect Multi Bronze  this bronze are made up of a blend of complimentary colours so you can blend them for a muted colour effect. Soon as you put the product on your brush, the colors mix well with each other and it becomes a subtle brown color.

The product was created for emphasizing face shape and giving skin a light tan.

The colours mix very well, allowing you to create a natural and fresh finish.

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.

Which concealers do you like best? Have you tried this one? Let me know in the comments below!

How to do Perfect Smoky Eyes

Hi everyone, welcome back

The dark, smoldering smoky eye makeup is the perfect look for the evening.

The smoky eye look involves the use of some heavy colours over the eye area. In general, dark shades such as grays and blacks are predominantly used to achieve this look. One rule of thumb to keep in mind is that when you are opting for such dramatic eye makeup, you should avoid using distracting colours on other parts of the face.

The focal point of your smoky eye makeup is the eyes. All other makeup should serve to highlight this feature and blend in with this look seamlessly. Opt for light, translucent blushes/light bronzer to add a hint of color to your cheeks and a pale/nude lipstick shade which sets off the smoldering eye makeup to great effect.

Using eye makeup primer is a good option to get that perfect smoky eye look. These come in powder and cream form and they help the eye shadow stay on longer. By using this, it also prevents your eye makeup from getting smudged beneath the eye lids. This helps you maintain that perfect smoky eye look all through the evening. Wipe primer across the eye and let it dry thoroughly before you get on to the next step.

When applying the eye shadow, the richest and darkest colour should always appear near/around the lash line. The colour should go lighter as it reaches the crease of your eye. The base shadow colour should always be light. You can use shimmery creams, whites, taupes, pearls or even silvers as the base colour. Stick to neutral shades for the best effects. Apply the base shadow over the lids right up to the brow bone.

Next, take a medium shade eye shadow and apply it in the crease of your eye. Use your eye shadow brush to apply the dark shade starting at the outside corner of your eye, creating a “v” shape from the end of your crease area and finishing it off into your lash line. The eye liner should not be seen once you have completed the blending. Take your blending brush and blend this dark color so that it blends in with the rest of your makeup.

One critical point to remember is that both your eyes need to match perfectly with regards to the colour tone, shade and density. Since you are blending the dark shade to achieve your smoky eye effect, matching both eyes can be a challenge unless you have enough practice with this look.

Finish off your look with a generous application of mascara. You may want to apply several coats to make your lashes appear thick and luxuriant. To add some curl to the lashes use an eyelash curler.

My favorite bronzers

Hi everyone , welcome back

Today I want to share my favorite bronzers , They are matte and quite similar in shades…. These three are the ones I use more.

Elizabeth Arden 

Maybelline 

Makeup revolution 

Elizabeth Arden Bronze colour Intrigue ; 

A versatile, soft-shimmer dual-tone bronzing powder that leaves a healthy, sun-kissed glow on the surface of the skin, eliminating the need for harmful exposure to the sun.

The texture of the compact is very fine and hence it blends really well……

Maybelline Dream Sun Triple Bronzing powder ; 

For instant natural looking, sun kissed perfection. Three multi-tonal bronzing shades create your unique sun kissed look, all year-round.

The best thing about this product is, it has 3 shades in one container. You can either combine all the shades using the brush by swiping it around the sides of your face…..

Makeup Revolution London ultra sculpt & contour kit; 

The palette brings three different products – a matte bronzer, a highlighter and a shimmer blush.

This is a nice kit for contouring, highlighting and bronzing. I totally love the texture of all the products and how smoothly they blend on my skin.

What’s your favorite bronzer ? 

Thanks 😉

Applying makeup, Eyeshadow, mascara and eyeliner

Hi everyone, and welcome back to my blog

Good eye makeup will accentuate the eyes and make your eye colour stand out. How you apply your makeup is entirely dependent on the look you are going for.

It’s important to learn about the shape of your eyes so you can bring out the best in your features. For example, if your eyes are close-set you may want to use a lighter colour in your inner corners to make them appear further apart.

Before applying eyeshadow, applying a cream eyeshadow base because it creates a beautiful texture and a smooth canvas for  eye makeup.

Always blend your eyeshadow well with a clean fluffy brush across the area  where your eyeshadow ends, to create a flawless finish.

Classic black mascara is best for all occasions but pick your mascara according to the look you want. when applying mascara, don’t pump the wand because this will push air into it and encourage it to dry out.

Work from the base to the tips of the lashes and roll the wand to avoid clamps. always apply from underneath so you don’t weigh down the lashes. Allow the mascara to dry before applying more coats if you want a more dramatic effect.

If you want a softer look, line your eyes with a powder eyeshadow using an angled brush. For a more dramatic look, use a gel or liquid liner to draw a line close to the lash line with a flick at the outer end. For an even more striking look, use a thicker line with a more accentuated flick at the end.
