    The Perfect Autumn Looks For Everyone

    Everyone is pretty in their own way, and with the seasons changing we can all ramp that up to 11 if we choose to. With autumn here and winter just around the corner, it’s time to break out your earthy tones and warm lipsticks. Autumn is different to summer not just because of the cooler weather and crunchy grounds, but it’s also a great time to look fantastic when you’re outside with simple looks. Here are a few ideas on the perfect autumn trends that work for pretty much everyone.

    Use makeup to enhance your looks rather than make a new one for yourself. If you’re lucky for this season alone, you could have an original autumn look based on your hair color or skin tone, so really bring out your best fall look with a few of these style tips.

    Have A Monochrome Canvas

    With all the leaves on the ground and trees becoming more and bearer as we speak, having a monochrome makeup look will make you look right at home! It’s simple yet beautiful. You don’t even need dual shades for this look, and you can go for triples or quadruples if you like more variety. You can match any color to any other as long as they share a base.

    Muted palettes and nudes are a perfect shade type for this kind of makeup. First of all, find the colour that’s right for you, then simply use it all across your face. Match your peach or rose lips to your eyeshadow palette with a lighter burgundy across your eyelids. It may seem less striking but you’ll look put together and perfect.

    You don’t have to go through the trouble of mix and matching when it comes to having a block to work with. This can work for all skin tones, whether it be a pale or vibrant shade. For a spooky season look, you can even have a burnt orange on your lips and cheeks that remind you of pumpkins.

    Coat Your Eyes With Art Deco

    Makeup is art, so combining it with artistic movements is great. Sound complicated? It’s easy! When it comes to lining your eyes with your favourite marker, use simple shapes that vary in size and intensity. You don’t even have to be an expert to pull this trick off! Using a pencil liner, draw circles on your eyelids and then connect them up, or draw big lines that you can fill in and go over with some liquid eyeliner.

    You can turn your face into a literal work of art with beauty standards that seem ripped straight out of the 1920s. Bringing the old back into the modern day with retro looks is not only stylish but a cut above a lot of the current trends. This makes it perfect for changing up your look for autumn when environmental change is all around us.

    Use your usual setting hacks for longer lasting makeup looks during the fall. It’s even harder to get makeup to stay on during the rainier seasons, so be sure to set your liner with a little eyeshadow in the exact same shade. This will make you continuously pop, and is completely easy to do.

    Pair Your Scarf With Your Cheeks

    When we think of fall, we think of pumpkin spice and everything nice. Now when it comes to putting an outfit together with your makeup in mind, it couldn’t be easier with burnt and block colours during this time of year. This work wonders on your cheeks due to the area available and highlighting possible.

    For fair cheeks and lighter skin tones, a good warm color for your cheeks is a peachy tone. Look for more neutral tones rather than pink, which are the most blendable if you want to switch a look up. This pairs well with pale scarfs of orangey or beige colors for sunnier days and is a perfectly cool looking combo.

    For darker skin tones, a burnt out or ombre ‘brick’ color is good for an autumn look. This also pairs well with an orange or red scarf, which contrasts amazingly with your skin tone and brings out your natural beauty.

    If you have an infinity scarf, loop it properly around your neck by having wide loops that decrease in size as they go down. You can knot it as well if it’s too long for you, and your outfit will never look better!

    Plum colors are always a good choice. You can even use some dual tones for a noteworthy lip appearance. A dual tone mix of a pale and bright colour can boost your lip size naturally and is just different to what we see a lot of the time.

    These Tips Will Turn You Into A Makeup Professional

    The possibilities are endless when it comes to makeup. There are thousands of videos online of people doing crazy things with their makeup but that might be a bit out of your league. Most people end up with the same sort of look every day because they don’t know how to be more creative. If you’re just a beginner and you want to improve your makeup skills, check out these simple tips to help you along the way.

    Buy Fewer Items

    Lots of people make the mistake of thinking that the fuller your makeup kit is, the better you’ll look. That’s not the case and there are so many products on the market that are just plain rubbish. You can waste your money on thousands of bits and bobs that you’ll never use if you like, but it won’t improve your makeup. Instead, you should be looking for good quality products that you can use for lots of different styles. You need a decent blending brush, contour brush, and multitasking brush for everything else, that should be it.

    Finishing Spray

    One of the worst mistakes to make is applying makeup that ends up looking too thick like it’s caked on. If it doesn’t look natural then it won’t look nice so you want to avoid this at all costs. A good finishing spray is the easiest way to stop this. It will tie all of the makeup together and make it look more natural and it will also make it last a lot longer.

    Teeth

    Your teeth are one of the most important things to look after because people tend to notice them a lot. You could get professional teeth whitening done but to be honest, it’s incredibly expensive and the results are no better than what you could do yourself at home. There are plenty of teeth whitening at home tips that can get you started. All of the hard work you’re putting into your makeup routine will be for nothing if your teeth aren’t in top condition because studies have shown that people’s perceptions of you are hugely affected by your teeth. It could hinder your dating life and even reduce your chances of landing a job.

    Primer

    Using a primer gives you a better base for applying your makeup and improves the final result. When you’re applying eye shadow especially, you should always use a primer. If you don’t, the eye shadow will smudge and fade whereas with a primer it will stand out and the lines will be more defined. You should also put a thin layer of something neutral on before you apply your eyeliner to make your eye makeup ten times better.

    Clean Your Brushes

    When you’re using your multitasking brush and you’re in a rush, it’s tempting to just keep dipping it into different products without cleaning it in between. It might save you time but it’ll ruin your look. When you don’t clean your brushes, you’ll end up combining all of the different products and they’ll all smudge together into one color. That means you’ll lose out on any contrasts that you’re trying to create. It’s also an easy way to apply way too much makeup and that’ll end up ruining the natural look that you’re going for. It’s easy to get around if you just clean off your brush between each product.

    Moisturizer In Your Concealer

    Matching the color of your concealer can be tricky and you might find that it’s a bit too heavy for the aesthetic that you’re going for. You don’t need to buy loads of different shades if you just use this simple trick. Mix a little moisturizer into it to lighten it up. Use this tip to tailor the color that you need without having to spend loads of money on ten different concealers.

    Eyeliner On Your Lips

    Having fuller lips is a brilliant way to improve your style and you can achieve it with a simple addition to your lip routine. Once you’ve applied your lip gloss, get a white eyeliner pencil and apply some in the center of your lips. Blend it in carefully and it’ll make your lips look way fuller than normal. If you don’t blend it naturally it won’t look great so be careful with it and don’t apply too much.

    Get Some Sleep

    This isn’t exactly a makeup tip but it will help improve your beauty regime no end. Bad sleeping patterns have a huge negative effect on your skin. You’ll end up with big bags around your eyes. It’ll take longer to apply your makeup every morning; if you’re having to cover up the effects of lack of sleep.

    DIY Beauty Products: Are They Worth The Hype?

    With so much emphasis on choosing cruelty-free and environmentally-friendly beauty products. More and more of us are turning to DIY beauty products. The fact is that a lot of products that are of a high-quality, also cruelty-free and sustainable tend to be expensive. Which puts them out of reach for anyone on a small budget. Then there’s the fact that we’re told time and time again that natural products are better for us. This is another reason why so many beauty lovers are now turning to DIY beauty products.

    Tips to Get More Kissable Lips

    kissable lips

    Image source: Flickr

    Lips are one of a woman’s best features. Men love them, and women love having a pretty full lip to show off in their selfies. Even if you don’t think your lips are particularly impressive, there are lots of things you can do to make them look more luscious and imminently more kissable, so that no one will be able to resist you.

    Check out these tips to get more kissable lips:

    Drink More Water

    Lips need a lot of moisture if they’re going to look as plump and healthy as they should, which is why you should drink lots of water throughout the day to keep them hydrated. Being well-hydrated will also plump up and improve the appearance of your skin.

    Lots of Lip Smacker

    Unfortunately, the skin on our lips is quite thin, and it doesn’t benefit from any natural oils like other parts of the body, so it really is essential, if you want to have smooth, plump lips, that you apply moisture in the form of your favorite lip smacker on a regular basis. Lip balms that contain hydrating ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter and beeswax are best.

    Exfoliate Regularly

    Because the skin on the lips is quite thin, you shouldn’t over exfoliate, but you should make an effort to get rid of dead skin at least once or twice a week, or if your lips are particularly sensitive, whenever you notice a real need to do so. Dead skin will start to flake if it isn’t removed and no one ever wanted to kiss horribly flaky lips.

    Apply SPF

    Again, because the skin on the lips is thin and sensitive, it’s really important that you protect them by applying an SPF lip moisturizer daily. Even if it isn’t a sunny day, you still need to do this.

    Apply a Hydrating Lipstick

    If you want your lips to really look their best, steer clear of matte lipsticks which will dry out your lips and make them look dull and lifeless. Instead, find a great hydrating lipstick in your signature color and use that instead. If you must use a matte lipstick, at least a apply a layer or two of lip balm before you apply your lipstick.

    Plump it Up

    Lips that look naturally plump are so much more inviting than the lips, but you don’t have to have naturally plump lips to create the effect! Just apply a lip plumping gloss over your lipstick for a quick boost.

    Take Care of Your Teeth

    brush-teeth

    There’s little point making your lips look good if you don’t also take care of your teeth. After all, your lips look imminently more kissable when you smile, and if your teeth aren’t the best, that could ruin the effect.

    If your teeth are missing or in really bad shape, consider getting the best dental implants you can afford, to transform your smile, otherwise, just doing the basics, like brushing and flossing regularly and avoiding excess sugar should be enough.

    Lip Color that Last Up to 18 Hours

    We all need a lip colour that will last throughout the day. A lip colour that does not smudge but pops its beautiful pigmented colour. Imagine every time you choose to eat and drink and all that lip colour keeps rubbing off. I hate that! Especially after just taking a sip of coffee or tea only to see that the mug is stained with lip colour.

    Carnival Parade SXM Sint Maarten Carnival Costume
     
    I recently came across a day that I will have minimal effort to do touch-ups to my makeup. I still had the chance to eat and drink but not to touch up my makeup. As a matter of fact, I couldn’t even bring along my makeup with me since I had nowhere to store it. I had the opportunity of participating in the St. Maarten Carnival Parade 2017 and for an event like this, it is impossible to be walking with a bunch of attachments. You just want to be free on that day, so that you can better show off your costume and have fun in the parade.
     
    While doing my makeup a lot of thoughts came to mind; what lipstick should I wear? Which brand lipstick or shade that I know for sure will last at least 8 hrs? on my lips before fading? These are some of the questions I thought of before I prep my makeup for the Carnival Parade.




    I was recently introduced to LipSense by SeneGence. Lipsense lip color is a premier product of SeneGence. It is being described as a long-lasting lip color that is waterproof, does not kiss-off, smear-off or budge-off and stays on for up to 18 hrs. LipSense lip color is available in a variety of textures such as frost, matte and shimmer and different undertones such as yellow-based/warm, neutral and blue-based/cool. For proper use or first-time users, it is recommended to purchase the LipSense collection in which you will receive a Lip Color, Moisturizing Gloss and the LipSense Ooops! Remover.

    Lip Color that Last up to 18 hours
    LipSense Lip Color, Moisturizing Gloss and Ooops! Remover

     

    Price

    LipSense Lip Color $25 .25 oz/7.4 mL
    LipSense Moisturizing Gloss $20 .25 oz / 7.4 mL

    LipSense Ooops! Remover $10 .25 oz / 7.4 mL

    How to apply

    The LipSense lip color should be applied to dry, clean lips. Prior application to lip, shake up the tube very well, as the colour separates from the wand applicator.

    Move the applicator in one direction by using a sweeping motion over the lips to apply the lip color.
     
    Apply 3 layers of the lip color for a long-lasting result. Allow the color to dry between each application.
     

    Then add a layer of the moisturizing gloss on top to finish off and keep color lasting and lips moist.

    For Touch Ups

    By any chance, if you need to touch up a spot or your waterline during the day, it is recommended to remove the gloss and ensure that lips are dry. Then, apply 2-3 thin coats of LipSense Lip Color where needed. Allow it to dry and finish off with LipSense Moisturizing Gloss.

    For a Customize Lip

    LipSense Lip Color can be customized to your very own unique look. Simply layer on different shades of lip color to create the ombre effect of your choice.

    How to Use the Remover

    By using a wet washcloth wipe your lips to fully removed the gloss and it allows lips to dry. Follow up with the Ooops! Remover, apply generously over lips; keep the mouth open. Allow it to sit for about 30 seconds before removing. This need to be done since some colours are darker and the lip colour was layered up to 3 times.
     
    After 30 seconds, rub lips together for another 30-45 seconds to help break down the color on lips.
     

    Use a warm washcloth and wipe away products on the lip. Repeat if necessary.

    Review

    My lip is very sensitive. On my first application of the LipSense Lip Color I find that it tingled, plumped and my lip had a burning sensation. To avoid further damage and for precaution measures, I did not proceed with completely applying the product. I just did one layer and took it off. From the looks of the product, I can guarantee that you will have a long-lasting wear if you apply it as recommended. 

     
    Regular makeup remover will not get the lip color off, so you will need the LipSense Ooops! Remover. The Ooops! Remover have a very pleasant scent and it does a good job of removing the lip color.

    Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant Review

    Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant
    The Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant seems like a mixture of Vaseline and white sugar finely blended and mixed together. The Maracuja Lip Exfoliant is said to contain raw sugar granules that are suspended in a soothing balmy elixir of antioxidants and vitamin C.

    Sometimes my lips can get extremely dry due to the heat from the sun and not enough intake of water. At this point in time, my lips would appear chapped to the point where the dead skin is actually peeling off. With this lip problem that I have, I decided to the purchase the Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant.

    The product packaging does not have any instructions on how to use, but since I am not new to lip exfoliant I stick to using the usual procedure. Well it all boils down to how dry/chap my lip is:
    Extremely dry: I would wet my lips prior and apply the Tarte Maracuja Lip exfoliant to my lips and let it sit for a while then I would massage it in and wipe away with a wet towel.

    Dry: I would damp my lips with water then proceed to apply the product to my lips then I massage the product with my fingers tips or a soft toothbrush.

    The Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant is a thick sugary scrub made especially for exfoliating the lips. For soft, moisturizing lips a little bit of the product goes a long way. When my lips are extremely dry and chapped, I find that the product does not really do a great job at exfoliating. Instead, it leaves dead skin hanging from the lips meanwhile other parts of the lips feel soft. I remember I had to use small size scissors to cut/remove the hanging skin.

    If the Maracuja Lip Exfoliant sugary ingredient would melt off the dead skin area and prevent my lips from bleeding then this product would be an A+. It just doesn’t buff off the dead skin cells efficiently.
