THE RIGHT MASCARA FOR YOUR LASHES

Hey readers :)

Ever wondered if you are wearing the right mascara? Well, if you aren't sure, or havn't even thought of this keep reading. . .

(I got this information after reading Taylor Chang-Babaian's book, which helped me A LOT)

Below are just some tips that I've learn't. 

Fine eyelashes

  • Try using a mascara that has close-set bristles, which will add volume.
  • Look for wands that have short, wide-set bristles.
  • Make sure the product doesn't appear to be dripping wet.

LA ROCHE-POSAY ANTHELIOS XL (REVIEW)

Hey readers :)

Still trying to find the right NON- GREASY sunscreen? Well, look no further! La Roche-Posay has done it again.

I am so pleased with their ultra-light 50+ Anthelios XL sunscreen. It's formulated with La Roche-Posay thermal spring water which is rich in selenium soothing properties (to read this review click here), and those that have sensitive skin can use it.

IT'S NUDE BY NATURE (REVIEW)

Hey Beauties! :D

Onto my second product review and this one is a real cracker. It's called Nude By Nature pressed powder, and it's part of the mineral pressed powder category. 

I've been using Nude By Nature for ages, mainly the loose powder. Since then, their brand has grown to skincare products and other fabulous makeup goodies. I've tried the primer too, and that was wonderful. But their pressed powder is amazing.

THE EXPRESS PREP

Hey Beauties! :)

There are two ways that you can prep your skin. Prep your whole face by cleansing, moisturising and the weekly scrub.

BUT, there is an express prep you can do when you've had makeup on all day and you just need to freshen up. You don't need to start the whole works again. All you need to do is simply just freshen up your eyes. Not only will you be able to apply makeup faster, but your eye makeup will be vibrant AND last longer!

TOUCH UP TIPS FOR LIPS

Hey readers :)

My last post detailed a few tips on how you could touch up your makeup fast. This post is all about how to touch up the lips!
Apply lip balm heavily to dry lips before you even start your makeup, then let it soak in. By the time you apply the lipstick, you'll have luscious, soft lips that will make your lipstick easier to apply. It will also last longer too.

If your lip shape is 'responding' to gravity, don't draw attention to it by applying a bright shade of lipstick. According to Rae Morris, she suggests trying this simple trick.

Apply your brightest lipstick, then look in the mirror, squinting your eyes until your vision is blurred. If your lip shape is plump and youthful- go for your life! If it looks aged, choose a nude lip colour, which will give the illusion of fuller lips. If you want to add more colour to the face apply more blush and mascara. 
 For any questions, please head to the bottom of the page and post a comment :)

TOUCH UP TIPS

Hey readers :)

You can use your express makeup kit to touch up your makeup -- FAST.

I've taken most of these ideas from Rae Morris- she is an incredible makeup artist. 

Skin

  • If your skin is too shiny, use a non-powdered blotting papers. They will de-shine your skin in seconds and work better with powder. 
  • Tone down flushed skin with an anti-red primer. They are available at your cosmetic or pharmacy counter.
  • In HOT weather, which makes you perspire, use a grease-based foundation, as it's water-resistant and won't run.

EXPRESS MAKEUP KIT

Hey Beauties! :)

Here is a list of makeup essentials I recommend you buy, according to Rae Morris.
