Today’s haul will include makeup and skincare.  As I have said many times before I really like Avon brand.

I like to start from the Avon true colour correcting pearls Evens out all skin tones,corrects uneven pigment & it’s easy to apply. For all skin types.

The next product is new for me I never used before  Mark Smoothing matte primer – it says;  Blurs lines, hides pores and banishes shine. can’t wait to try….

Avon mark. Big & False Lash Volume Mascara is a mascara with a fibre blend formula for fluttery volume that lasts all day. The formula is water, smudge, flake and clump proof and suitable for sensitive eyes. Exclusive brush follows the natural curve of the eye to get to the roots and easily reach into corners.

My favourite from this haul; (lipsticks) I love it …. Mark liquid lip Lacquer Matte Mystique; Kiss Face & Mark liquid lip Lacquer shine Dark and stormy.  The matte shades gives  a velvet finish and the shine shades a moisturizing vinyl finish, but both of them with long-wearing and to never bleed or feather.

Also I order Avon True colour lipsticks, 3 different shades ; Posh petal, Red supreme, Mauve. These lipsticks are perfectly Matte. Lightweight & hydrating formula.

Last but not least I have the Anew Clinical Anti wrinkle line Erasing Serum.  Lightweight, silky serum formulated with patented A-F33+ Complex for maximum wrinkle fighting, without drastic measures. Absorbs quickly and is suitable for all skin types.

 

Hope you enjoyed this haul, let me know your thoughts 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.

Thanks 😉

The 5 Minute Makeup Routine

Hi everyone, welcome back

Image result for 5 minute makeup routine

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.

There a multitudes of ways to define your eyes using makeup, but all that mascara, liner, shadow, contour, and highlight can get incredibly confusing…..

Apply eye primer with the help of your finger; the eye primer will even out your skin tone. If you have dark circles, don’t forget to use concealer.

Eye shadow – Select your eye shadow colour according to your taste. looks awesome. If you have selected more colors start form the lightest color and move on to the darkest.

The bronze eye makeup will make you look exclusively stylish not only in night parties but also in daytime functions. Pick up the idea and speak with your eyes.

Highlight your eyes in the right place. Apply a light, sparkly eye shadow right under the eyebrow and in your tear duct. This trick will make it look like light is bouncing off your eyes!

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. Work the liner into the lash line as close to your eyelashes as you can.

If you want your eyes to look more awake and your brows to look more defined, apply a white eyeliner underneath your brows along your brow bone, then blend.

Your eyelashes are the most beautiful part of your eyes; spend more time to make them even more beautiful. Use a thick mascara brush to apply mascara on your eyelashes.

Curl your eyelashes to make your eyes look bigger. Applying mascara is an easy way to define your eyes, but using a lash curler truly opens them up.
