The 5 Minute Makeup Routine

Hi everyone, welcome back

Prepare your skin for makeup with a moisturizer. Apply concealer under the eyes . Set the concealer with a dab of translucent powder. To add color to your face, you can either use the tinted moisturizer at the very beginning or opt for blushes after you have applied the concealer. Tinted moisturizers with SPF are a great option if you will be spending a lot of time outside. Remember to apply the moisturizer right down to your neck line.

If you prefer adding a blush, choose soft, light shades like pale pink or peach. A bronzer may also give you the color you desire without making the final look very heavy and thick. Use the bronzer sparingly over your cheekbones to lend definition to your facial structure. Lightly brush along your hairline and chin too with the remaining bronzer/blush.

Cream blushes are also a good option for a quick makeup session. They look great on the cheeks and they can work as eye shadow too. Of course, for the latter, they have to be the right shade. Cream blushes have the perfect texture to give your face a bright, moisturized glow without appearing greasy.

 

 

 

The eyes come next. A shadow pencil is a good choice if you want to quickly define your eyes while giving the lids a hint of color too. Dark eye shadow highlights your eyes and draws attention to them instantly. Neutral shades add a subtle definition without actually making your eyes the focal point of your face. The challenge with dark shades is that minor flaws in the makeup will stand out quite visibly. Unless you are a pro with your eyeliner/eye pencil, you should opt for the safer neutral shades for a quick makeup session.

For those who prefer eyeliners, start with the inner corner of your eye, keep to the lash line and slightly thicken the line as you reach the outermost corner of your eye. Blend with a brush and apply your mascara. If you have an extra minute you can curl your lashes with an eyelash curler before the mascara goes on. Unless you want to make your makeup heavier, limit yourself to a single coat of mascara. A touch of white at the innermost corner gives your eyes a shimmer and makes them look bright.

To complete your look for the day, your lips need a swipe of gloss. Light, punchy shades keep you looking fresh and full of life. If you use a lip balm, then pick one with tint so that it can double up as your lip colour for your 5 minute makeup routine.

My top 5 beauty Faves

Hi everyone, welcome back

I switch around my makeup very frequently. Probably every week, in fact. but this are the ones I’m currently loving ….

The Honey Queen Honeycomb Blusher w7 – Leaves skin illuminated with a light satin sheen. This is one of my favorite blushers ….

NYX Soft matte lip cream  delivers a burst of creamy color and sets to a stunning matte finish. Surprisingly durable, lightweight and delightfully creamy.

L’Oreal Color Appeal Eye shadow Golden Shimmer 23 . One swipe can give you enough color though and it can be packed on a lid….. 

 This eye shadow I had bought long time a go, but never got the chance to use, so I started to use and I love it is a beautiful shadow for summer.

Dior skin forever foundation,  is pretty much just that… perfect. It boasts everlasting wear (up to 16 hours) and takes skin perfection and a matte finish to next level. It’s not oily and as it dries down to the matte finish, it feels like it’s melting into the skin ….

Mark nude matte cream concealer, Covers imperfections, diminishes the appearance of skin texture with a matte, lightweight feel, no caking or creasing!

 

What’s your favorite beauty products ?? 😉

How to apply blusher

 

Hi everyone,

Image result for how to apply blusher

There’s no one correct way to apply blusher. The method use depends on the type of look you want to create.

Most women avoid blusher, but used correctly it can be the best beauty tool you own.

For Natural Healthy glow;

  • Apply Foundation as normal. Smile – where your cheek is naturally at its fattest is where blusher needs to  go to create a natural look.
  • Apply the blusher in a small circle, blending well. For the best results try gel blusher.Powder over the top.

For sexy cheekbones;

  • Using powder blusher, sweep colour in an art following the line of your cheekbone up from the apple of your cheek to your hairline. Keep colour light and blended.
  • Add a little shimmer on the highest point of your cheekbone nearest your eye.

Tips for using blusher 

  • If you are using  powder blush, brush it only one way – going over and over or round and round with the brush creates streaks.
  • When using gel our tint blushes to contour the face, don’t just apply one big blob and try to blend it. Chances are the colour will take more  where it is first applied and you’ll find it hard to even things out. Instead, apply a blob on the apple of the cheek and to smaller blobs graduating up the cheekbone, then blend upwards towards the hairline.
  • Gel or tint blushes are best used on bare skin; They tend to stick on foundation and can be hard to blend.
  • While the shade of blush you choose is generally determined by your skin tone.
