Killer Makeup Combos

Published

on

The wedding season is upon us and we find ourselves faced with colour combination dilemma again! Which eye shadow will go with which Lipshade? What lipshade will strike best cyour outfit? Questions, Questions, Questions !
Here are three killer combos to help you make the right decisions.  These three colours are powerful, classy and almost never out of style. Here’s what to do if you are wearing:

1. Black

If you have never been to a wedding flaunting a black gown or traditional attire, you have missed out! Black is an exquisite color and best for an evening event. Combined with an elegant piece of statement jewelry, it looks ravishing without too much effort. As for the makeup, black and red make a great combo. You need to keep the eyes neutral on the lid and smokey in the outer corners, with a hint of subtle highlighting at the brow. Curl your lashes and apply a volumizing mascara to make your eyes pop. Use a bronzer or a blusher to make your cheekbones more noticeable. Lastly, apply cherry red lipstick to complete your sexy look!

2. Orange

Orange is a tricky colour to work with, but stunning if done right. When it comes to pairing makeup with an orange dress, it is wise to stick with warm tones. For eyeshadow, use bronze or a taupe, with thick black liner and lots of mascara. For the lips, a dusty pink tone would look best. Nude pink also is a safe choice since it is easy to pull off.

3. Red

Red is everywhere during wedding season. From the bride’s lehnga to the bridesmaid’s gown, red rules all! With red, you should definitely try a smokey eye. It’s so sexy and refreshing! Use three colours to create a monochromatic eye look. Using taupe as a base lid colour, apply a darker brown in the center of the eye lid. To achieve that smokey look, you need to apply black in the outer corner and blend it subtly with the remaining two colours. For lips, red can be paired with red, nudes or even a deep, rich purple! Opt for any of these shades and you are ready to go!

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.
