The Perfect Order To Apply Makeup

26 Mar

apply makeup


When you need to apply makeup, it will help to apply in a certain order, especially if you are untrained and doing it for yourself at home. To get the perfect balance right, apply makeup in a specific order of product, which will allow you to build and blend to create a flawless finish:

Step One: Eyeshadow

Always start by applying eyeshadow, as the loose powder can sometimes spill on to the cheeks if you are using a wide, soft brush (and you really should be using a wide, soft brush rather than the applicators that come with eyeshadows).

Step Two: Eyeliner and Mascara

As these two products are the most difficult to get right – just having an unsteady hand can derail the look – it’s easier to apply these before you put facial make up on, just in case you go wrong and need to remove them to have another try. Trying to remove eye make up without displacing foundation is tricky, so get the difficult eye products out of the way first.

Step Three: Liquid foundation / concealer.

Next, apply your liquid foundation and concealer. Blend thoroughly with a sponge to achieve even, flawless coverage.
(Quick Tip: If you use a primer, obviously apply this before foundation/concealer).

Step Four: Loose facial powder.

Choose a color close to your natural skin tone and remove the ‘shine’ that foundation and concealer can cause, using a large round brush in circular motions.

Step Six: Blusher

Smile so the apples of your cheek are most prominent, then apply blusher sparingly.

Step Seven: Lipstick and lipliner

Put the finishing touches in place, and you’re ready to go.

Making Products Work For Those With Pale Skin

26 Mar

Pale Skin

If you have light, pale skin, it can be an absolute nightmare trying to find facial make up products that suit your tone. For many women, even the lightest shade in make up ranges is often too dark or too orange-colored. Despite this being a continued problem for literally thousands of people, it is an issue that the cosmetics industry has failed to target. Although specific makeup lines for people with pale skin do exist, they tend to be pricey or sacrifice quality of the product in the hopes that the lightness of color will be reason enough for people to buy.

Address the Pale Skin Issue

There are a couple of ways of getting around the problem. First, you could try using a facial bronzer. Used sparingly, a bronzer will add enough color to your face to allow you to use normal foundations and concealers, though the effect can be patchy if not blended thoroughly. There’s also the issue of having your facial skin tone match the rest of your body, and if you cannot be bothered to fully self-tan regularly, this isn’t an option.

It is worth trying to ‘dilute’ the color of a facial make up the product, to make it paler and therefore more suitable for your skin tone. Remove some of the normal product from its tube or tub, and then mix in a white facial moisturizer. This should spread the pigment of the foundation around, and make the overall effect appear lighter and more suitable. Just remember that you may need to use extra face powder, as the added moisturizer may make your face appear shinier than normal.

How to Choose the Best Lip Gloss

18 Mar

Lip Gloss

Finding a lip gloss that most accurately fits the lip color and lip tone one must be patient and experiment with different colors and brands. These tips can improve your chances of finding the gloss that most accurately fits your lips.

Experiment with Different Brands

There are various brands of lip gloss, and also the costs of those brands vary widely. A $7 lip gloss bought at an area pharmacy isn’t essentially inferior in quality compared to an $18 Poole lip gloss compact. You may appreciate the feel, smoothness of the gloss or feel its heaviness, stickiness, or icky-ness. High-end lip glosses do supply a super-glossy feel that virtually glides on the lips; there are inexpensive lip glosses like NYX or Glossier Lip Gloss which have an enormous assortment. Do your research to find the best brand that fits your lip color and even has a neutral smell.

Lip gloss does not last very long

– Reapply periodically to preserve the dye
– Some brands, even the most effective ones, fade off after a few hours
– Be unique and decide on a lip color that compliments your lipstick and helps longevity

Tips for selecting

Choose a lip gloss based on your lip color since the color of your lips affects the color of the gloss applied to it. Never choose based on how it looks on other people. It may look good on them, but they may have thin, pale lips while another may have full thick lips. Lip gloss color show differently on different people. Your natural lip color will play an essential part of your lips. The pigmentation of the gloss is blended with your natural skin tone to arrive at how it looks, meaning continue to experiment with the best lipgloss color and brand until you have found the perfect match.

Just because it glitters isn’t always good

Make sure that the lip gloss feels comfortable. Lipgloss glitter that feels gritty or sharp should not be used. No matter what material used lip gloss should go on smooth. There is grittier lip gloss on the market and really should not be used as they are not healthy for great looking supple lips.

Be realistic; lip gloss gives lips a smooth shimmer; it does not provide anyone with kissable cottony-soft lips. Lip balms do that. Balms are not shiny. But it makes lips feel supple. Apply a balm over the lips first before putting on a lip gloss; this is to moisturize the lips. The lip gloss is supposed to be well, glossy.

Today’s top cosmetics and hair brands are still toxic to women of color

What’s the deal with Rihanna’s Fenty makeup?

18 Jan

Capture-Fenty Beauty Line


Rihanna last year set out to make a product that was supposed to cater to women who have many shades of skin. In my experience, most companies could not make a foundation that worked and catered well to a lot of different skin complexions. Well, let me say I think Rihanna has hit a home run. The Fenty Beauty make up has over 40 shades of foundation. I have for years struggled with finding a foundation that fit my skin tone. When I did the company had limited quantities, could never find in stores that carried and was never in stock. Well, I found the perfect foundation with Fenty. Alas, it has been such a success that I could not get any in December because the stores were sold out, but that was essentially due to its unexpected success and it being the holiday season.

Rihanna came out with an affordable and very effective foundation ranging in price from $18 to $54 depending on the size you are looking for. The vast array of 40 shades of foundation and 30 contour and highlight sticks generally has something for all skin tones. If you are searching for a foundation this is probably where you want to go. Now its sold online but for your first trip out you want to go into a store and start testing on your skin to see how it covers.


I found the foundation to be smooth and silky applying and does not feel chalky at all. I recommend talking to a makeup rep at any of the stores that sell it like Sephora and ask for a sample. Going on, the foundation feels like it is well made and lasts all day. Now I don’t like the shiny feeling that many foundations leave after a few hours wear. But Fenty is totally oil free and comes in matte which helps reduce significantly the oily face which I can’t stand. I have searched diligently looking for a foundation that was affordable and perfectly matches my skin tone. I have found it.  Bottom line I recommend checking out the entire line of Fenty make up.
