•5 Ways to Get Rid of Dark Circles•

Hello, beauties! I hope you’re all doing well!

In today’s post, I’m going to talk about a very common issue that occurs to almost all of us! I remember there was a time when I loathed waking up in the morning. This was because I would have to look into the mirror and see those dark circles staring back at me. But not anymore!

Want to know how? Keep reading!

 

♦ ♦ ♦

♦#1 Cold Compress

You can use water or milk. Just soak a washcloth in the cold liquid and then apply the compress over your closed eyelids. I’ve even seen people using a cold spoon for this remedy. You can even try ice cubes. Wrap the ice cubes in the compress and place it over your eyelids for five to ten minutes. Repeat two or three times per day.

Warm-Compress

 

♦#3 Almond oil

Start by applying some almond oil on the dark circles. Use gentle, circular movements to massage the area, and then leave it on overnight. In the morning, wash your face with cold water. The treatment will help, but do not expect miracles after just one night. Repeat it until the dark circles are history.

♦#3 Coconut oil

To get the best results, apply some coconut oil to your hands, rub them to warm the oil, and then massage it under your eyes. Let the coconut oil stay there for a few hours, and then wash it off with cold water. You can repeat the treatment three times per day. Repeat until you’re satisfied with the results.

#4 Cucumber

Just slice a fresh cucumber, and let the slices chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. After that, apply them on the dark circles for 10 minutes. Remove the slices, open your eyes and wash your face with water. You can repeat the treatment two times per day.

♦#5 Lemon juice

Squeeze fresh lemon juice in a small bowl and then use a cotton ball to soak up the juice. Apply the cotton ball around your eyes for 10 minutes. Wash it off and dry your eyes. You can repeat the treatment once per day, no more. However, you can do it every day for few weeks.

Go check them out here:

♦#1 MOIST HAND & BODY LOTION

Okay, the smell of this is to die for. I haven’t fully used it yet, but with the little bit of product that I put on, I can say with confidence that it has a silky and smooth texture that is very easy to spread and is fast absorbing. It really tones your skin and extracts a natural glow while the organic olive oil moisturizes and smoothes your skin.

♦#2 REVITALIZING SHOWER CREAM

Wow, wow, wow. This product also smells intoxicating.
This cream will gently cleanse, protect and tone your skin. The amber extract that it contains adds shine, while the organic olive oil moisturizes and smoothes your skin.
It offers a sense of pleasure and revitalization.

♦#3 HAIR AND BODY FRAGRANCE MIST

This definitely is my favorite one. This literally smells like an expensive perfume with its exquisite scent which awakens the senses.
It is enriched with bergamot natural essential oil, along with organic pink pepper and amber extract that pamper your hair and skin.

♦#4 SOUFFLE BODY BUTTER – HANDS, FEET, AND BODY

This cream makes me feel like I just got out of a spa!
A soft body cream with a silky texture that is easy to spread and is also fast absorbing.
It offers a luxurious sense of silky softness.
Preferably, apply it after you shower.

•Maybelline New Makeup Products-Review•

Hello, beauties! I hope you’re all having an amazing day or night!

I’m super excited for this post! Guess what came in the mail today? Maybelline makeup products that I’m literally obsessed with. Thank you so much, Maybelline for these products!♥ Go check them out here:

 

♦ ♦ ♦

 

♦#1 THE BURGUNDY BAR

The Burgundy Bar is a new eyeshadow palette from Maybelline. Can we please talk about the colors? They immediately screamed Autumn to me. I’m so ready to try these amazing, fall themed colors.

The Burgundy palette

The palette comes with a reasonable amount of twelve shades. Ten shimmer/metallic and two mattes. The colors range from light gold to cranberry to deep burgundy.

How do they apply

Very easy to use, especially if you’re a newbie at makeup. All the colors are easy to apply, so if you want you can use your fingertip too (the palette comes with a brush).
Overall the palette is a great value and the colors are beautiful.

♦#2 GEL EYELINER

I was dying to get my hands on a gel liner. To my delight, Maybelline sent me the Maybelline’s Lasting Drama Gel Liner and I have no words to express how happy I am about this product.

Why you’ll love it

It’s an oil-free formula that can hold highly concentrated pigments in a clear gel base.
The lines are more intense and it is of course smudge-proof.

♦#3 THE COLOSSAL BIG SHOT VOLUM EXPRESS MASCARA

This mascara truly has a magic wand. I’ve tried other mascaras before but the brushes turn immediately to clumpy and they screamed cheap drugstore mascara.
Believe me when I say NO clumping. No fallout. I’ve literally never had curled lashes before…until now!
Just after one coat, your lashes will have a natural voluminous look.

20171102_172505.jpg

 

♦#4 LIPSTICKS- METALLIC COLLECTION (50- 888- 30)

These colors scream fall and Halloween. Beautiful colors, very easy to use and all of them have a very creamy and soft feel to the lips. They definitely worth each penny and they don’t disappoint.

• How to Choose the Right Concealer for your Skin Type•

Hello, beauties! I hope you’re all doing great!

So, in this post, I’m going to talk all about concealer. Concealer seems like it should be very simple: Dab a little bit on the pimples and blemishes you want to hide, blend it in and you’re done. Unfortunately, as with most makeup products, it isn’t always that easy -, especially for beginners. Between the different types of concealers out there which one is the right one for you?

 

♦ ♦ ♦

 

♦#1 Oily skin+Stick Concealer

Pick concealer with clay to absorb excess oil and last all day.

♦#2 Dry skin+Creamy Concealer

Start with moisturized, exfoliated skin, then tap concealer onto your skin.

♦#3 Wrinkly skin+Tinted Brightener

Stick with sheer, bright formulas that won’t settle into fine lines.

 

2411564

 

♦#4 Dark circles+Matte peach concealer+Yellow-toned Foundation

Peach concealer neutralizes dark purple and green shades underneath eyes.

♦#5 Puffy Skin+Concealer+Ice Cube

Hold an ice cube over an orbital socket, then tap on concealer.

•Keep your Makeup in Place•

Hello, beauties! I hope you’re all having an amazing day or night!

For today’s post, I’ve put together these nifty tips for girls with oily skin, so that your makeup won’t slide off by midday and will last and last.

 

♦ ♦ ♦

 

♦#1 Always, always Prime

It takes only 15 seconds to apply a little bit of primer.
Apply only when your skin is completely dry. Go for matte, powder finish primers.

♦#2 Foundation, girl

Dot concealer into those places where you need it– under your eyes, around your nose, on your chin, using a brush to apply it rather than your fingertips. Go for a mattifying, light and powder finish foundation. Steer clear of anything with a shimmer.

♦#3 Blush or bronzer?

Whether you use blush or bronzer is really up to you. You have a couple of options here, depending on how well your base coverage “sticks”.

 

 

♦#4 Eye Makeup

Use an eyeshadow primer, and dab it from your lash line all the way up to your brow line. Opt for waterproof mascara. As for eyeshadow, I’d recommend a cream finish rather than a powder. Another alternative is to use a thick kajal pencil along the upper lash line and blend it out using your finger.

•Beauty Hacks pt.2•

Hello, beauties! I hope you’re all doing well!

For today’s post, I decided to do another beauty hacks post! These will definitely make your life a tad bit easier!

 

♦ ♦ ♦

 

♦#1 Close your pores

Rub an ice cube all over your face before you apply makeup. This helps close the pores and reduce redness for a glowing skin. It will also help your makeup last longer!

♦#2 Rosewater as makeup setting spray

Simply spray rose water over your makeup for a dewy finish and a healthy glow.

♦#3 Toilet sheet covers as blotting papers

Simply use toilet sheet covers to blot oil/shin on your face when you are running low on blotting papers.

♦#4 Make your eyeshadow pop using white eyeliner

Apply white eyeliner all over your eyelid and then apply your favorite eyeshadow on top of it.

♦#5 French manicure with a band-aid

Stick the band-aid vertically along your finger, leaving just the nail tip free. Paint along the nail tip with your French manicure set and you are done!

♦#6 Stop concealer from creasing

Lightly dab a very small amount of face oil under your eyes before applying concealer. The oil melts the products into the fine lines and smoothens the under-eye area.

•Makeup Steps For Beginners•

Hello, beauties! I hope you’re all having an amazing day or night!

In this post, I’m going to show you how to apply makeup in 10 simple steps. First time putting makeup on? Then this post is for you, girl!

 

 ♦ ♦ ♦

 

• Step 1; Moisturizer

Applying makeup is an art. Smooth, supple skin is your best material. To achieve this you need to moisturize your face. Wash your face and then apply liberally, giving your skin a few minutes to absorb the lotion or spray.

clean-clear-advanced-acne-control-moisturizer.jpg

 

• Step 2; Primer

Primer helps prepare your skin for concealer and foundation, ensuring they go on better and last longer. It also conceals any flaws and minimizes pore visibility. Apply on your face and neck.

A great one to try out;

800897141691_studioperfectprimer_clear_main

 

• Step 3; Concealer

Use concealer to cover any blemishes on your skin. Dab it carefully over problem areas and then blend with your fingertips. Choose a concealer that is slightly lighter than your skin color.

nars-radiant-creamy-concealer

 

• Step 4; Foundation

Select a foundation that matches your natural skin tone. Apply it in small batches on your chin, cheeks, and forehead, and then blend it to cover your entire face. Keep it even to ensure a natural, flawless finish.

2254921.jpg

 

• Step 5; Highlighter and Bronzer

My favorite part! Highlighter and bronzer make your face look more sculpted and defined. Highlighter should be lighter than your natural skin tone, while bronzer should be a bit darker. Apply the bronzer along your jawline and then brush highlighter around your cheekbones. Blend and apply lightly to keep a natural look.

 

 

• Step 6; Blush

Add blush to give your face a pleasant glow. Locate the apples of your cheeks by smiling, and then carefully apply all the way back to your hairline.

• Step 7; Eyebrow Pencil

Beautiful eyes are essential-make them stand out with an eyebrow pencil. Follow the natural line of your brow using a color slightly lighter than your hair.

EL_UNIVERSALBROW_dbbf2e90-924d-4475-94aa-1fac9e80ac4b_1024x1024.jpg

 

• Step 8; Shadow, Liner & Mascara

Give depth and definition to your eyes with eyeshadow and liner. Use three shades of eyeshadow, starting with the lightest color under your eyebrow and then the darkest color over your lid. Blend them to avoid any obvious lines. Then apply the eyeliner along the lid directly above your lashes. Use mascara to coat and separate every lash, giving them a thick, natural look.

• Step 9; Lipstick, Liner & Gloss

Lipstick is one of the most flexible parts of your look. You can mix and match colors based on your liking or mood, outfit or even the time of the day. Evenly apply a coat of lipstick and then line your lips, finishing with a layer of gloss.

• Step 10; Evening Glamour

A few easy touch-ups will turn your daytime makeup into an evening-ready style. Adding some blush will highlight your cheekbones. You can also try some darker eyeliner for a more daring look. Finally, get ready to dazzle with bright red lipstick.
