A Crazy Trick to Get Rid of Under Eye Circles, is it TRUE???

When we saw blogger Deepica Mutyala concealing her eye bags with Red Lipstick, we definitely questioned if it ACTUALLY WORKS. Well ladies, it  ACTUALLY DOES.!!!

  •  Know your Skin Tone: Identify your skin tone by looking at the veins on your wrists. If they’re shades of blue and purple you have a cool undertone, if they are mostly green you have a warm undertone. Orangy-red lipstick can work to colour correct yellow-toned darker skin tones. You really have to play with the shades of the red lipstick for it to match your skin perfectly.
  • Apply the orange-red lipstick to conceal the dark circles under the eyes.  Once applied, simply continue with your own regular makeup routine right on top of the lipstick. (Conceal).

Tip: It can be used to conceal dark spots and discoloration anywhere on your face and works better than regular concealer.

Silky Thick Groom

hairstyles-trends-2015-16 134f9fdbbec7b6ce70472ec774d72bedHair treatments, the most confusing. We are promised so many long lasting results. Formulas vary from silicone-based, to alcohol free, to natural, to curl enhancing, etc… I tried a couple of products that I believe helped in thicken my hair and have a long lasting shine. In this post I will share with you my top products along with some simple hair remedies you can try at home.

1- Kerastase Lumiere Liquid: It’s quite pricey, however it can last for a year since you just need one or two hair drops for all hair types. This serum gives extreme shine and is extremely weightless. When you spray it on your hand and put it on your hair you bareful feel anything. But you get the shine.

2-Kiehl’s Silk Groom Serum: It can pretty much straighten curly hair. You however have to apply it on wet hair before blow drying your hair as it also helps with minimizing tangles. This serum is mostly recommended for those with curly hair but can also work on any hair types as you can always put it on the tips of your hair for defrizzing.

3- Apple Cider Vinegar: Yes it stinks, but when you leave it in your hair for around 30 minutes before you shower, the silky shine you get is unbelievable. The smell will still remain after you wash it, but only you can smell it. For best results I apply apple cider vinigar on my hair, tie it and cover it with a plastic bag for hydrating effects. (please do not try if you have an irritation to vinigar).

Eyebrows on Fleek

eyebrowwax1Many of you use pencils, brushes or wands and sometimes we don’t know what’s the best option for us. I personally prefer Brow Gels.

Here’s why:- first, it colors in the hairs darker, without touching the skin behind them. This makes them bolder and show up more while still looking natural, as if you had them dyed. Second, you’ll discover hairs you didn’t know of.

 

Brushing Tip:- Brush upwards as you move across the brow, however switch directions once you reach the arch and brush the tail hairs towards your ear.

My Tip choice brow gels: 1- Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel. 2- Eyeko Tinted Brow Gel. 3- M.A.C Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set.

Exaggerate the Angle

8181b6870178da966c5adce1e1668b3fWhen it comes to exaggerating the upper lip line and the angles, you’ll need to focus on one key element:- Lining just outside the lip. If you follow your own lip line you’ll get a natural result. But if you take the line from your cupid’s bow to the outer corner instead, it will be slightly more than natural, creating a fuller effect.

TIP: Stretch your smile to tighten the skin so your lines are smooth and visible. You can even fill in the entire upper lip as well.

Cosmetics used:  1- M.A.C lipliner in “Oak” 2- M.AC Lipstick “Myth” 3- M.A.C “Lipstick “Honey Love”
