Winter Makeup Guide | How to pick the right shades

Winter Makeup





We have already stepped in the cold months of the year.. It’s time for some socks, gloves and bright lipsticks! In this post I shall try my best to help you pick right products and shades for your perfect winter makeup.

Before we proceed, a quick glance at the warm and cool tones. During winters it’s a good idea to stay in the warm tone territory.

 Winter Makeup Guide

For Face

  1. Opt for BB and CC creams over mattifying foundations to avoid dry patches. These creams provide a higher degree of miniaturization to the skin, which is exactly what you want.
  2. For Blush, use a warm tone blush, such as peach or coral.

For Lips

  1. If choosing bright shades, opt for more of oranges or reds (with orange undertones), or deep purple.
  2. If choosing light/ nude shades, caramel, peach, coral can be some good options.

For Eyes

  1. Pencil eyeliners look great! They add more warmth to the overall look.
  2. Go ahead and try on some good deep browns and greens.
  3. While playing with eye shadows, softer matte shades can do a good job.

Travel Makeup Essentials

Travel makeup





I love to travel… and more than that, I love travelling light!  I prefer carrying the essentials so that I concentrate more on spending some fun time with family and the place rather than keeping a check on my stuff. When it comes to makeup, my bag barely allocates space to a small to medium size pouch so I have to pick only the essentials…. And ofcourse no one would want to spend all the time doing makeup…. there is so much to explore when you are out!

The Bride Guide: Boho Bridal Makeup

boho_bridal_makeup_2

The wedding season is in full swing and I see a lot of new trends coming up. The brides these days are upto new looks and color combinations. I too tried a variant and experimented with a Boho Bridal Makeup. The look is demure and understated overall, intensifying the features in a subtle manner.

Bridal Makeup

This look can also work best for engagements or other wedding functions if you are wanting to go more dramatic on your wedding day.

Here I have kept a very light hand at contouring and emphasized more on making the skin look fresh and glowy.

How to Remove & Store False Lashes

BeFunky Design

In my previous post I showed you HOW TO APPLY FALSE LASHES, and in this one I shall help you remove them and store for further use.

How to remove false lashes

Removing False Lashes

One must be really careful while removing false lashes as simply pulling them may cause your original lashes to pull off along, causing pain and discomfort.

I have with me, a quick easy way of removing false lashes, for which you shall be needing

  • Tweezers
  • Q-Tips
  • Maybelline Clean Express Total Clean Make-Up Remover

 

All you need to do is, dip the Q-tip in makeup remover and rub it gently over your lash line. The glue would soon loose bond with the lash line and you will have your falsies removed in no time!



Storing False Lashes

If you store your lashes well, they can be used repeatedly multiple times for a longer period. The best way is to run the Q-tip drenched in makeup remover over the lash band, this will help get rid of the glue and makeup sticking.

You may now store them in the container they were initially stored or or might as well use an empty contact lens case.

The video below will give you a visual aid of the steps. How you find it useful 🙂 If you do, please subscribe!

5 Essential Makeup Tools

5_makeup_tools

Right tools are prime essentials for good makeup! If you have the right tools in hand, your makeup will be effortlessly good. Let me introduce you to 5 tools, that you ought to invest in.

The 5 tools that I will be addressing here, have been segregated into 2 categories – Face and Eye makeup.

5 Essential Makeup Tools

ESSENTIAL FACE TOOLS

TOOL #1

Beauty Blender

A beauty blender totally changed the look and feel of my makeup base. I had tried using hands and brushes to apply liquid foundation but nothing worked as good as a beauty blender. I got mine from Forever 21 (DLF Saket), they have amazing collection of beauty blenders. I got a set of 3 beauty blenders and costed me INR 449/-.

This wonder tool gives the most natural, flawless and dewy (if used damp) finish to your foundation and I can surely swear by it!

TOOL #2

Powder Brush

It’s best to apply compact or any powder product with a big fat fluffy brush, which is called a powder brush. I got mine from a local cosmetic store for INR 150/- and have seen such retractable brushes in most of the cosmetic stores. Don’t think it will be much of a problem to find one… In case you are looking for some options online I can suggest you THIS ONE.

TOOL #3

Blush Brush

Blush is an important ingredient in the makeup recipe and it’s essential to get it right. It’s a good practice to use a blush brush (thinner than powder brush) for a more natural look. I have two blush brushes, one of them is unbranded and the other one is from the VEGA brushes kit which you can buy online HERE.

ESSENTIAL EYE MAKEUP TOOLS

TOOL #3

Eye-shadow Brushes

Eye makeup is remarked “good” if well blended. A good set of eye-shadow brushes can help you achieve this effortlessly. These set of 4 eye-shadow brushes are my all time favorite and costed me INR 275/- you can get them online HERE.

TOOL #5

Eyelash Curler

A quick and easy way to have instant curled lashes which makes the eyes look bigger. I got mine from Clairs and costed me INR 400/-
