5 Tips For Summer-Proof Make Up

Summer. The word brings so many good feelings to you – tank tops, flip flops, sundresses, crop tops, et al. But when it comes to pulling off some make up, the same word ignites nightmarish thoughts – bleeding liners, dehydrated lips, patchy foundation. *Shudders* So unless you’re planning to move to the Tundra region, stick to these quick make up tips this summer.

 

  1. Clay Masks

Summer means a lot of sweat and more oil produced by your skin. To reduce this, indulge in a good clay mask therapy once in a week. Find some great clay masks here.clay mask

 

  1. Waterproof

Well. Duh-uh, if your skin is going to step up the sweat and oil production, the best option is to turn to waterproof. Water-resistant mascaras also do the job just fine; it’s advisable to do a quick shower test though.waterproof

 

  1. Pop!

Another way to tackle summer is not by beating the heat but taking it in your stride. Embrace the sunny days with vibrant colors. Here’s how you can work some pop into your make-up.7-ways-to-Rock-that-COLOR-EYELINER-without-looking-GAUDY-cover

 

  1. Or Not.

On the other hand, if you’re not one for the fuchsias, blues and all that brightness on yourself, going au naturale too is a great way to tackle the season. Highlight the high points of your face with a bit of bronzer for some added glow in the Sun. Here are some products for going (almost) nude.nude makeup

 

  1. Sheer Relief

Ditch the creamy and heavy formulas and opt for lighter or sheer versions of the same. Not only do these feel lighter, but they also look great. For example, pick a nude or “invisible” lip-liner; and stick to lip stain or lip tint instead of a gloss or lipstick.sheer

 

Now go beat the heat, pretties!

The Ultimate Lipstick Guide For All Lip Types

Recently, celebrity YouTuber Lilly Singh a.k.a. Superwoman launched her liquid lipcolor shade called ‘Bawse’ in collaboration with Smashbox. And I won’t be lying if I say, “I’m a unicorn”. But here’s the thing, Lilly’s red looks smashing on her and on me it’s straight up odd. Why? Because I possess surrealistic blade-thin lips!Smashbox

Enter, the lipstick guide. What I mean is that if a red doesn’t look good on you, a russet might. And if a russet doesn’t, beige might. Follow this guide to pick out the shade that goes best with your pout.

 

  1. Thin Lips

Most people with thin lips may already know this, but for those who don’t, dark colors shouldn’t really be your pick. Go for lighter and more natural shades of pink, beige and nudes. Start by lining your lip and then fill it in for a gorgeous and fuller look.thin lips

Suggested: Bobbi Brown Art Stick (Brown Berry, Rose Brown, Rich Nude); Christian Louboutin Safki Lip Definer; Anastasia Beverly Hills Nude Awakeningbobbi brown

 

  1. Full Lips

Read, perfection. Sorry ladies, but I am totally J. Simply because while you discuss the latest crimson shade by YSL and Louboutin, I am here retouching my clear gloss. But no hard feeling y’all! Oh and, as if it’s news but you chicas can carry off pretty much every color but leave the nudes for the rest. Pretty please?scarlet johannsen

  1. Top Heavy Lips

You, woman, are the reason the ‘pout’ came into existence. You make the ‘duck face’ look effortless to the extent of seeming legit. And although, your pout is perfection, it’s okay to want to turn down the fullness at times. All you need is a darker and a slightly lighter shade of the same color. Fill in the fuller half with the darker shade and the lighter shade on your lower lip. Or you could just use a dark tone throughout and still look like a million bucks!Moroccanoil  "Inspired By Women" Campaign Celebration

Suggested: YSL Rouge Pur Couture Kiss & Love Collection (Fuchsia); Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet (La Diva); MAC Mattene LipstickYSL Pink

 

  1. Bottom Heavy Lips

One word, ombré. You can totally rock that trick on your fuller half. Simply fill in your lips with the desired shade and dab some white make up pencil or nude eye shadow on to the center of your lower lip. Blend lightly for a magically balanced and gorgeous look. Or, as mentioned earlier, go for a single dark shade and rock it. Ombré is cooler though. Just saying.1lily-collins-ombre-lip

Suggested: Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl Color Enhancing Lipstick (Noir Revelateur); Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayonbite beauty

 

  1. Large Lips

Although totally kissable and unbelievably attractively, large lips can at time overshadow other facial features. Turn down your lip volume by wearing a soft matte color on the lip and highlight prominent features of your face – eyes, brows, and cheekbones, et al.kim-kardashian-01-600x800

Suggested: MAC Lipstick Halsey; NARS Audacious Lipstick (Vanessa, Juliette, Brigitte)Screen Shot 2016-05-16 at 2.49.13 AM

 

  1. Small Lips

Adorable as they are, small lips sometimes deserve due attention. Bestow them with some spotlight by picking up lip colors that have some shimmer, shine or gloss. These not only highlight your lips but also add a good amount of fullness.small lips

Suggested: MAC Lipglass Viva Glam Ariana Grande; Dior Addict Milky Tint; Chanel Rouge Allure (Pimpante)dior gloss

 

Important as it is to know your lip shape well and shades that suit you, it is also a good idea to practice some of these tricks before taking ‘em out for a spin.

5 Lipsticks That Will Up Your Pout Game

Before you give this read a pass, let me tell you that I am not enlisting this season’s hottest lipstick shades. This list is in fact a compilation of the craziest R&Ds in the lip care and make up arena. From color-changing sticks to annoyingly perfect lip tattoos, here are 5 lip products that are anything but ordinary.

 

  1. Fran Wilson Mood Matcher

The sticks are available in a bunch of regular and some not-so-regular shades. Here’s the catch though, once you wear the lipstick, it changes color. Now, I don’t mean like a traffic signal but more like different shades pink, russet, maroon, et al, depending on your “body chemistry”. Also, the stubborn 12-hour formula enriched with Aloe and vitamin E is not going to fade whether you eat, drink or scoff down an entire human.moodmatcher

 

  1. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Crème Colour Concentrate

The 100% vegan and cruelty free make up cake by OCC can be used as an eye shadow, blush and lip stain. Enriched with emollients and humectants including aloe leaf extract, cocoa extract, and vitamin E, the smooth and super velvety texture coupled with gorgeous shades like golden, silver and bronze give a perfect matte metallic finish.obsessive compulsive

 

  1. Berrisom Peel Off Lip Tint

A Korean trend (of course), the peel-off lip colours are brilliant, actually. The three-step apply, peel and pout process is slightly time consuming but the results are mind blowing! And though this one might not be advisable for the impatient but if you can live through the tad lengthy application process, it’s worth the lip exfoliation.berrisom_mt_001_light-500x500

 

  1. MAC Lipstick Halsey

Grey is subtle – it’s neither endearing like black nor overly tranquil like white. It’s gorgeous and it’s on a stick inside a MAC case! The offbeat yet gorgeous slate grey lipstick by MAC is not much, still everything. The sultry grey is bold and when it’s on that pout, it’s nothing short of unique and strong.Screen Shot 2016-04-18 at 5.24.14 AM

 

  1. KA’OIR Glitzstick

The Glizstick Collection by KA’OIR is the perfect reason to step out of your matte-fied comfort zone and indulge in some crazy glitter. The Glitzstick comes as a box of shimmery lip glitters that can be patted onto your favorite lip stain or you could go ahead and buy yourself an entire Glitzstick package wherein you get the base color, the glitz and a complimentary applicator stick. The shades range from a brilliant white to a bold black. If you’re one for a little less OTT, try their Sparkle from the Lip Pop collection. Less shimmer and shine but tantamount chic!

 

Your best selfie is just a pout away!

5 Hacks To Prolong Your Make Up’s Shelf Life

Just how much make up can one possibly slap on in a span of three months – which is how much a cosmetic lasts on an average. Given that you should toss it out to prevent yourself from coming in contact with microscopic germs that may have mushroomed on it, what do you do with make up products you use once or twice in months? Here’s what.

 

  1. Refrigerate

Similar to food items, our make up too stays fresh and usable longer when stored in cold and dry places. And what is a better cold and dry place than a fridge?398-natio-cosmetic-range

 

  1. Renew

Applicators are the only portion of a product that comes in direct contact with our skin, which increases their chances of gathering germs. Hence it is a good practice to replace applicators such as brushes, blenders, etc. regularly.tools

 

  1. Breaking Good

If you use a powder base foundation or eye shadow or cakes of the same, you’ll know the pain of crumbling pellets. But here’s what you can do. Crush the cake completely into a powder and set it again. Add a few drops of alcohol, let it dry and voila!227635381

 

  1. Tone Up

Oil based foundation can separate from the pigment, but simply shaking them well mixes the ingredients back again making it good to use. But in the case of water-based foundations, the water evaporates leaving behind a thick formula. Simply add a few drops of toner to it and you’re good to go!0199d0dd66a36b562ff55f7ba14ee613

 

  1. Cleanse

Healthy as it is to renew make up applicators and products, it also practical to regularly wipe your brushes and tube/bottle openings with some alcohol. This rids your cosmetics of any possible bacterial accumulation.Chanel
