Makeup tricks for the girls with glasses

Published

on

In my personal opinion, people of any gender in glasses are extremely attractive!

It’s a pity that girls feel they can’t do eye makeup without their spectacles coming in the way when they CAN! Here’s how:

 

Don’t be afraid to use mascara

Have no fear! We know it’s annoying to have your lashes hit and streak your lenses, but using an eyelash curler can be helpful. Curling your lashes will prevent them from pointing downwards or sticking out straight and hence are less likely to smear. Your curled lashes also make your eyes look bigger, and you, wide awake.

 

Conceal!

Wearing specs can often create dark shadows around the eyes or accentuate any under eye darkness that you might already have. Using a colour corrector and concealer to lighten and brighten your under eye area can help your eyes pop.

Line

Defining your eyes should be the focus, because your aim is to shift the focus from your frames to your eyes. Make sure both top and bottom lash lines are defined with eyeliner, with a minimum of two coats of mascara. A dark or nude smudged lid color, with the top and bottom rim of your eyes lined in black, is the perfect eye look for you especially if your frames are colored!

 

Highlight!

Make the inner corner and brow highlight your best friend. This will pull attention beyond your glasses and lighten up the eyes.

What Goes On Must Come Off – The New Makeup Remover Everyone’s Talking About

Published

on

What’s worse than getting home past curfew after a rad party? It’s removing heavy eye makeup and budge-proof mascara (shortest horror story) when all you’d rather do is sleep without a care in the world. Nevertheless, sleeping with makeup on is a big no-no as it can clog the pores and irritate the skin.

If you’re tired of rubbing your eyelids raw and shedding a few precious eyelashes in the process, Vaseline will be your new best friend.

Vaseline? Really?

Yes, you heard that right! A pot of good ol’ Vaseline is a lifesaver when you want to remove heavy makeup in a matter of minutes. Vaseline’s light, emollient texture helps heavily pigmented makeup slide right off without damaging delicate skin around the eyes. The best part yet, it comes highly recommended by Dermatologists, and they swear by its sheer efficiency.

What else can Vaseline do?

Apart from Vaseline’s tried-and-true makeup removing properties, it can also come to your rescue in the middle of a makeup mishap.

  • It can tame grizzly brows and baby hair
  • Replenish dehydrated skin
  • It can sub in for mascara

50 Shades of Foundation Frenzy – How to Pick One That’s Right for You

Published

on

The secret to a selfie ready face? The perfect foundation! A foundation should help make your skin look like the best version of itself. The wrong tone and formula can make your skin look sallow and cakey. Here are a few tips to keep in mind for your next beauty haul.

Know your undertone

If you don’t know whether you have a cool, neutral or warm undertone, chances are you’re wearing the wrong shade of foundation. Here’s what you need to know:

  • If you have a naturally rosy glow or the veins on your wrist appear blue or purple, you have a cool undertone.
  • If the veins on your wrist appear greenish, you have a warm skin tone.
  • You have a neutral undertone if your veins appear bluish green.

Sounds like too much work? Don’t worry! Just use the metal jewelry trick. If Gold jewelry pops more on your skin, you have a warm undertone, and if silver looks better, your undertone is cool.

Formula Matters

Before you pick the formulation, pick the coverage type; Full, Medium, or Light. Light to Medium coverage foundations will always be more buildable and you can add layers based on the look you want to go for.

The formulation depends on your skin type. If you want an oil-free formula for acne-prone skin, try on a shade that’s LIGHTER than your original shade. Oil-free, matte formulations tend to oxidize after a few hours and turn yellow or orange. Also, steer clear from dewy foundations as they are packed with light-diffusing particles.

For those with dry skin, go for a dewy formula that will cover imperfections and keep skin moisturized throughout the day. Another wrong move that most people make when buying foundation is trying out the shade on the back of your hand. Try it on your jawline instead to check if it’s a match.

Pro tip – Not a fan of heavy formulations? Get Fair & Lovely’s BB Cream – it gives your skin just the right hint of color for a lit-from-within glow.

Two’s a charm

If your shade is not on the cards, don’t settle for any other – mix and match to create your perfect shade. You’ll need a lighter foundation and one that’s slightly darker than your original shade. The good thing about having a foundation duo at your disposal is that you can use it for contouring.

Pro Tip – Always shade test the foundation out on your jawline. This will help get you closest shade to your skin tone.
