KNOW YOUR SUNSCREENS BETTER!! Part 1

Sunscreens have been in the market since the world was made, okay a bit of exaggeration there but sunscreens have been a boon to society since the early ages when greeks used olive oil as a sun protection. Egyptians used Rice & Jasmine Plant extracts. Synthetic Sunscreens today have also been quite in for a few thousand years. The biggest hit at that time was a sunscreen with SPF 2. (Whoa!) We’ve come a long way haven’t we? In the last decades alone we have come up with Broad Spectrums, Water Resistant etc.

So coming back to understanding the power of your sunscreen. Lets start with the most common 3 most used words “SPF” which stands for Sun protection Factor. We all talk about how important it is and now moisturisers and foundations also have SPF in it. but what does it do and what are all the numbers SPF15, SPF30, SPF50 and so on mean?

We have 2 important Ultraviolet rays that come in contact with our skin that is the UVA and the UVB. SPF means the protection we receive from UVA. So mathematically speaking SPF 1 is equals to 15 mins of protection. which means SPF 15 would be 225mins of protection. SPF 30 is equals to 450mins of protection.

Sultry Warm Orange Gold Eye look

Hello Beauties,

Welcome to my blog!

The Urban Decay Vice 4 palette is my favourite palette and it creates an infinite number of looks. This is just one of them with one of my favourite shades in the palette that is Bitten which is an orangey brown matte colour that can warm up and bring a pop to any look.

If you want to see how I created the look please read further.

IMG_0075

Step 1 – I prepped the eyelids with MAC concealer in NC42 and a translucent powder to set the concealer.

Step 2 – I used the colour Framed all over the transition area.

Step 3 – I used the colour Bitten on the crease region to warm the look.

Step 4 – I used the colour Delete on the outer corners of the eyes and blended it into the crease and down onto the lower lashes.

Step 5 – I used Flame in the middle of the lid and blended it along in the inner corner of the eyes.

Step 6 – Then I used the colour Bones in the inner corner of the eyes to brighten up the inner corner and make the look come together. I also blended the same colour on the brow bone.

Step 7 – I filled in my brows with Maybelline Brow Powder

Step 8 – I completed the look with Inglot Gel Eyeliner in Black, Stila Mascara and Ardency Inn eyeliner in the waterline.

Younique Mineral Touch Foundation

Hey Everybody
Welcome to my blog.

Today I’m going to review the Younique Mineral Touch Foundation for you guys. This is an honest review and not sponsored in anyway. I’m not a company presenter or a sales person this is just an honest review of the product.

I could be talking about any other in trend foundation yet the reason why I’m talking about a brand about which I don’t know much, is because I fell in love with this foundation the minute I started using this.

The Mineral Touch Foundation is a weightless foundation. It is the perfect cocktail of nourishment and coverage. Having a problematic skin I have tried too many foundations. All the foundations that I have ever tried are either too drying or too heavy, not enough coverage, sometimes cakey, sometimes turn very greasy during the day. For a straight year I used to use an oil free yet heavy moisturiser under my Estee Lauder Foundation because it was just perfect coverage. I still love it but for day wear or when I don’t need a heavy base, I found the perfect solution.

APPLICATION: I cant believe how well it colour matches my skin. The way I apply it is by using a two or three dots on my face and then blending it in with a damp beauty sponge the one I use is a real techniques sponge. My skin instantly looks flawless, hydrated and glowing. Best part is that after applying the foundation I don’t have to set it with a powder as it has a matte finish. I let it set for a few minutes before going in with any bronzer or blush.

I’d recommend this foundation to anyone who has dry and problematic skin. It gives a flawless coverage and is weightless.

Smokey Ocean Blue Eye makeup look

Hey Beauty Lovers, I’m here with another eye-makeup look that is much different to what we usually wear. It is night time appropriate, it looks gorgeous and compliments dark eyes. I love how the colours just add a pop and bring out the eyes.

IMG_1938_Fotor

Step 1 – To achieve this look I started by prepping my eyes with MAC prolongwear concealer in NC42 all over my lid and set that with translucent powder.

Step 2 – I used a mixture of Make up Geek peach smoothie (3) and Creme brĂ»lĂ©e (4) on the transition are of my eyes and on the lower lash.

Step 3 – I applied Makeup Geek Cocoa Bear (7) in the inner corner and the outer corner of my eye and blend it through in the crease and on the lower lash.

Step 4 – I used Makeup Geek Americano (8) in the same area as cocoa bear (7) to intensify it.

Step 5 – I used Makeup Geek Houdini (16) with a flat synthetic brush in the middle of the lid and blend it outwards. (Tip – You can use your ring finger for this step it would work just as great if not better)

Step 6 – I used my Urban Decay Vice 4 palette’s colour grasshopper (first swatch on the picture below) dabbing it with my finger on the ball to bring more light and dual toned effect. (Tip – You can use any lighter green with shimmer for this I used the Vice 4 palette as it was accessible)

sTEP 5 – I tight lined my eyes with Ardency Inn Liner and Used a liquid liner for the wing. I only started lining from half of my lid as I have small eyes and I really wanted to show the gorgeous colour.

Step 10 – Last I used Loreal Butterfly Mascara.

Step 11 – I applied Makeup Geek Rapunzel (2) on the inner corner to brighten up the whole look.

Anti-Ageing Series: The best secret to Anti-Ageing

Hey Everybody welcome to my Blog!

I’m so excited to share with you guys the three main ingredients that are required in every skin care regimen no matter what type of skin it is. Obviously I’m taking about Vitamin A, B and C. All of these three vitamins are not only important but are vital for the skin’s functioning and maintenance.

The only way topically to maintain a beautiful and youthful looking skin is to keep up the use of vitamin A, B, and C in your skin care regimen. Many products would have a mixture of different ingredients and I love it but the problem there is that there is a very low percentage of the vitamins in these products which does not help the skin at all.

vitamini-za-kozu

Vitamins A has many other names such as retinol, retinoic acid, retinoid, tretinoin. What it does is it helps the healthy cell growth from the basal layer of the skin by boosting the exfoliation of the flat, dead cells by this you get fresher, plumper looking skin also it helps improve the texture of the skin, brightens up the skin and fight age spots and ageing signs such as fine lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin B is an important and sometimes neglected vitamin in the skin care regimen as it builds the strength, hydrates and calm the skin. With the past few years I have been taking Oral vitamin A which did help a lot with my acne but did make my skin photosensitive and sensitive to other cosmetics. Using the Vitamin B serum I felt instant strengthening of my skin, my skin isn’t as sensitive and it feels great.

Vitamin C  is important part of skin care.It is filled with anti-oxidants that balance the skin’s free radicle damage. now not going too deep into scientific words free radicle damage is when atoms of the skin are un-stable as they lose there electrons to another atom and this leads them to steal an electron from another atom which leads into a domino effect. Practically this happens due to ageing, pollution, stress, hormones and all other things that depreciate the structure of the skin. Anti-oxidants such as vitamin C have extra electrons that they give to the unstable atoms which makes it very beneficial for the skin, making it look healthier, plumper. Vitamin C also helps with the production of collagen and helps reduce damage of harmful UV rays.

I love concentrated products of vitamins for my skin so I know what I’m putting on my skin rather than a pile of product with so many ingredients.

If you’ve liked my post please like & comment below what are you’re favourite products in topical vitamins, I’d love to try new things.

Top 5 Favourite Skin Care Essentials

IMG_1907_Fotor

We all have the skin care essentials we run to once we know our skin needs some help. I have listed down five of my skin care essentials that I need all the time.

  1. JOSIE MARAN: 100% Pure Argan Oil IMG_1914_FotorA bottle filled with 100% Pure Argan Oil. The thing about beauty oils becoming a trend is that its obviously the best for moisturising and it has the benefits of naturally derived sources. Argan oil by Josie Maran is one of the best argan oils in the market because of their process of deriving the oils by hand rather than using heat that would destroy the benefits in the oil. Even after being an oil it does not feel sticky or thick on the skin, It seeps into the skin and is readily absorbed into the skin. The best part about the argan oil is that you can start seeing and feeling improvement in your skin after a few days of use.
  1. Aspect: Multi B Plus Serum IMG_1912_Fotor

My doctor suggested me to start trying the Aspect Multi B Plus which is the Vitamin B serum for strengthening and nourishing my skin. With the past few years I have taking Oral vitamin A which did help a lot with my acne but did sensitise my skin to the sun and other cosmetics. Using the Vitamin B serum I felt instant strengthening of my skin, my skin isn’t as sensitive and it feels great.

  1. CLINIQUE: Anti-Blemish Solution Clarifying LotionIMG_1911_Fotor

I found this gem in my samples after shopping at clinique once and thought to give it a try. The solution is amazing for textured or problematic skin. I love the exfoliating pads and this has the same effect and is cheaper compared to exfoliating pads. I use it with a cotton pad everyday and night (if I don’t get lazy) and just allows other products to penetrate better and eaves my skin feeling baby soft.

  1. ASPECT: Active C Serum IMG_1913_Fotor

Vitamin C Serum : Aspect Active C serum. Vitamin C overall is important part of skin care that is sometimes neglected. Vitamin C is filled with anti-oxidants that balance the skin’s free radicle damage. now not going too deep into scientific words free radicle damage is when atoms of the skin are un-stabalized as they lose there electrons to another atom and this leads them to steal an electron from another atom which leads into a domino effect. Practically this happens due to ageing, pollution, stress, hormones and all other things that depreciate the structure of the skin. Anti-oxidants such as vitamin C have extra electrons that they give to the unstable atoms which makes it very beneficial for the skin, making it look healthier, plumper. Vitamin C also helps with the production of collagen and helps reduce damage of harmful UV rays.

  1. ORIGINS: Drink Up Intensive Overnight MaskIMG_1910_Fotor

Origin Drink Up Intensive overnight mask: For all the times you wish you could go to sleep using something and the next morning your skin feels hydrated and smoothe, this is the best best solution after your night time regimen. This mask has helped me in making my skin look hydrated, fresh and glowing. I have also noticed that my Make up looks so much better when I use this mask the night before as it hydrates the skin so the make up doesn’t sit on top and start flaking or looking cakey. Love this mask.

Top 16 MAKEUP GEEK Eye Shadows

Hello everybody, welcome to my blog again. Today I’m going to share with you guys my top 16 eyeshadows from Makeup Geek. I ordered a total of 30 eyeshadows in span 6 months, I love all of them in the XL sized Z palette that holds 35 eyeshadows. I narrowed the list down to the 16 favourite ones.

IMG_1935_Fotor

 

I’m not going to waste your time by writing a paragraph detailing each one. I have listed the eyeshadow names, cost, a small description and I have also swatched all 16 for you.

IMG_1938_Fotor

  1. Mirage – (US $6) – This is the best eyeshadow if your eyeshadow is not blending out in the crease well or you’ve gone too high with your eyeshadow this colour can soften the look and blend the shadow right away without being shimmery or frosty.
  2. Rapunzel – (US $6) – This is the most gorgeous eyeshadow that has just the right amount of sheen to it, its not shimmery its also not chalky as some lighter shadows can be. It is beautiful for brighten and open up your eyes.
  3. Peach Smoothie – (US $6) – This is a matte crease colour, it might not show well on darker skin tones but I personally love to mix it with other shades such as Creme Brulee and Frappeto blend them.
  4. Creme BrĂ»lĂ©e – (US $6) – This one is a gorgeous crease colour. It looks flattering on light to medium skin tones.
  5. Dessert Sands – (US $6) – This one is beautiful ochre yellow, earthy toned colour that can warm up any crease.
  6. Frappe – (US $6) – Frappe and Creme Brulee are very similar in tones however frappe is darker.
  7. Coco Bear – (US $6) – Coco bear is a gorgeous matte brown. Reminds me of darker version of MAC’s Soft Brown eyeshadow.
  8. Americano – (US $6) – Americano is a dark brown shade, I love to use this in the outer corner of my eyes and underneath my lower lash line to smoke out the lower lash line.
  9. Cupcake – (US $6) – Cupcake is a straight up baby pink. I love experimenting with colours and it looks very flattering for a pinky purple eye look.
  10. Vintage – (US $6) – Vintage is a purply pink shade.
  11. Bitten – (US $6) – Bitten deep burgundy purple shade.
  12. Cherry Cola  – (US $6) – Cherry cola is a matte deep purplish brown shade. Cherry cola and Americano together will look the same as MAC’s Embark.
  13. Poppy – (US $6) – Poppy is right up orange. I personally found it very intimidating but once I got the hang of using it right it is gorgeous!!!
  14. Foiled Eyeshadow – Grandstand – (US $10) Grandstand is a beautiful champagney gold eyeshadow its so flattering on all skin colour.
  15. Foiled Eyeshadow – Jester – (US $10) Jester is a green shimmery eyeshadow with gold undertones in it. I love it so much for a coloured eye look.
  16. Foiled Eyeshadow – Houdini – (US $10) – Houdini is a beautiful dark greeny turquoise,Sorry I cant explain it, but its beautiful. This and a smoked out crease is all you need for a coloured smokey eye for a night time look.

Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick Swatches and Review

 

Kat Von D liquid lipsticks are a few of the trendiest things that have been raved about for quite while now. Here I have swatched and reviewed a five of the most popular shades. So lets get into it.

YES YES YES, I AM ALSO ONE OF THE FANS OF THE LIQUID LIPSTICK TRENDS.

I’m sure everyone by now knows what liquid lipsticks are and what they do, but for everyone who is new to the concept, liquid lipsticks have the same application like gloss but they are very pigmented and after 1-2 minutes they set to a complete matte. I personally love the concept sometimes people are worried if these lipsticks would dry your lips, which depends on the brand. I do recommend moisturising your lips before using the liquid lipsticks.

Coming to the actual swatches, I have swatched 5 of these for you in the shades. Starting from the bottom left corner.

  1. Double Dare
  2. Mother
  3. Nosferatu
  4. Lolita
  5. Lolita 2

I have used these lipsticks to give you a good review of the formulae and the colour and if it is long-lasting. I DO NOT LIKE TO TALK ABOUT PRODUCTS I DON’T PERSONALLY LIKE.

Now the formula of the lipstick what i felt was a bit watery which was a concern to me at first thinking it wouldn’t be opaque enough. To my surprise its extremely opaque gives you a beautiful colour and its crazy long wearing. It does not move from the lips. Gorgeous product. Nothing bad to say about it except I wish I could have the berry toned shades.

Please like & comment if cleansing oils have worked well for you and which brand & shade of liquid lipsticks do you enjoy, I’d really love to know.
