30aug2017

Hurray! I’m back after 2 months of summer holidays and I’m feeling myself totally refreshed and rejuvenated and so, now, I’m back to regular blog routine. As you all know, with so many new beauty supplies that are available on the market, here comes my take on those amazing little beauties.

NYX Highlight and Contour Palette:

First of all, salute to Kardashian sisters, who has introduced contouring concept to the whole world as popular than ever before and ever since then, it has become as a famous  face sculpting technique to the amazing beauty community and one such kind that is outstandingly pocket-friendly with superior quality is NYX highlight and contouring palette and I would highly recommend this product to any contouring newbie as the creamy texture of the palette works immensely well and less is more when it comes to this palette and the pro-style finish is the highlighting feature among all and so, please check it out as it comes with an incredible price of £18 only.

Eyeko Black Magic Lash Curler:

One ultimate tool that any girl needs before mascara application is a good standard eye curler and this Eyeko black magic lash curler is my latest great find and the soft touch with extreme precise finish are the best qualities about this product and it gives a quintessential lift and curl, which is essential to achieve an amazing mascara finish and also, with just £12, it is definitely a great bargain to look for. Moreover, having tried their products before like black magic mascara and skinny liquid eyeliner, I can’t praise enough of their astonishing quality finish.

MAC Satin Red:

I love MAC lipsticks as the creamy texture and ever-loving smooth application is always a pleasure to apply on the lips and when it comes to this lipstick, the satin finish and red hue looks sumptuously beautiful.

Tangle Teezer:

I love tangle teezer and it works great on both wet and dry hair and it tames your hair exponentially well and so, it is always a win-win for me.

I wish all of you to have a wonderful weekend and see you again on my next post and please remember to drop your amazing comments and as always, I would love to read them.

First of all, let me get into its sleek packaging where it comes as a squared box that is milky white in hue and the top of the box is pretty much translucent where it shows the content of the product with transparency. Then, comes the clickable closure of the box which is quite handy to avoid any spillage and the actual product content comes with 6 rectangular pans. Lastly, at the back of the box, it clearly specifies the details of ingredient and expiry date.

Nyx color correcting concealer

Yes, colour correcting concealers are quite different from regular concealers as each colour specifies each action and hence, it is applied only to those areas where it needs particular attention but instead in regular concealers, you tend to apply to major area on the face. Besides, getting it mastered is a bit challenge but once you have done it, then the beauty world is just in your hands. So, let’s see the real benefits of each colour tone.

  • Yellow: It works exemplarily well around the nose area where you need to cover up the light pinky skin conditions
  • Green: It is great to conceal areas of redness like acne, blemishes and breakouts
  • Purple: Ideally, it neutralises the area of yellow undertones and the other key advantage is, it works as a quintessential brightening base
  • Pink: It conceals under eye bag areas on fairer complexion and it instantly brightens up the eye area by covering any fatigue or dark circle and also, it corrects areas of veins and dark spots
  • Beige: This is a normal concealer shade where it is easy to apply onto the upper forehead and discoloured skin areas
  • Brown: Just apply it onto the jawline area to give that chiselled, sculpted look

  1. Start the procedure with a well cleaned and washed face.
  2. Remember to use toner to tone your skin.
  3. Apply your regular moisturiser that has SPF factor.
  4. Apply the above shades as per required onto your face.
  5. Top it up with foundation.
  6. Using beauty blender, blend it well.
  7. Now, your perfect foundation base is ready for the next step of makeup.
