MUA LUXE STROBE & GLOW HIGHLIGHT KIT

Hi everyone, welcome back

MUA Cosmetics has been one brand that I’ve been using for a long time ….

Who does not like a good highlighter? In this article I would like to show you the beautiful MUA Luxury Strobe & Glow highlight kit.

The box looks really beautiful!!!!…..

This compact kit contains a mirror, a powder highlighter and a cream highlighter, is a multi-formula compact, ideal for effortless highlighting. The cream and powder formulas in a light, luminescent shimmer allow for a perfect strobe & glow, iridescent look.

This is amazing, but you must put on the cream then set with the powder (which gives the highlight a gold sheen) and it lasted all day.

Overall, I really like the MUA Luxe Strobe & Glow Highlight Kit. . The powder is very subtle and light and the cream highlighter is a beautiful pearly gold which has a wonderful shimmer running throughout.

I hope you enjoyed this review, have a nice day 🙂

Thanks 😉

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.

Tips 

How to apply: 
1. For the most smooth finish, exfoliate your lips before applying
