Makeup tips for cold weather

Hi guys!
How are you my lovelies? Fall is here and winter is just around the corner. That means the days are getting colder and harsher. Which means that all of us needs to change our skincare routine so that we all still can fabulous! I’m not a big fan of winters and cold weather but it takes a lot to do your makeup in winters. I’m going to share everything I found, reading beauty tips, watching tutorials etc! So here it is.

  1. Wear green tinted products to counteract redness 
    If your skin is routinely red during the cold weather/season, you need  to invest in green tinted products to counteract the redness. Concealer or foundation with a green tint is perfect. Green and red are the complimentary colors in the color wheel, which means it will help in hiding the redness. You can also use green tinted moisturizer if you don’t wear foundation.
  2. Wear waterproof eye makeup so it stays all day long 
    Cold weather and harsh wind can make your eyes water, which can make your eyeliner, mascara runny. To prevent this from happening, choose waterproof eye makeup.
  3. Set your makeup with a layer of translucent powder
    You go to work or uni putting on your makeup and you see that it is all rubbed off on your coat and scarf? UGHHHH.. used to happen with me a lot! Then I found one trick… Keep this from ever happening again by setting your look with translucent powder. This will help hold your makeup in place and keep them away from getting onto your coat and scarfs!

  4. Mix moisturizer into your foundation to cover dry patches 
    Foundation does a great job of evening your skin tone and help your complexion look dewy and fresh. If you have flaky or fry skin, it settles into cracks, making it look worse! The best way to overcome this is by mixing a 1:1 combination with your moisturizer. The foundation will cover and the moisturizer will alleviate dryness!

Hope you guys liked it!

Skin care tweaks for Autumn

Hey guys! 
How are you my lovelies? Since its autumn I thought I should be sharing some skincare tips with you guys, since the weather is very harsh these days in Nottingham, one needs to take extra measure. Those light gel moisturizers and purifying cleansers you hoarded all summer just won’t cut it during the colder months. So, here are the subtle changes to make in colder weather to have a perfect skin.

  1. Layer up on moisturizer 
    For those that have especially dry skin, layering two types of hydrators- like a few drops of facial oil, like coco butter beautifying oil by The Body Shop (I’m currently using this and its AHHH-MAAZZING) with a moisturizing cream such a Garnier Daily moisturizer (for Dry to normal skin) can make a huge difference in how your skin looks and feels.
  2. Feed your face
    Comfort food may be your hibernation go-to, but adding good-for-skin foods into your diet can also help hydrate you from inside out. Not to mention eating a healthy diet keeps your skin clearer, which makes a huge impact on your skin’s baseline appearance. Foods like nuts and oils such as walnuts and EVOO, contain omega-3s to keep skin naturally moist, while silica is a key mineral for promoting naturally soft and smooth skin, which you can get from veggies like cucumbers and celery.

Hope you guys liked it! let me know in the comments below what do you do for your skin when Autumn/Winter season kicks in!

if you notice cool tones look the best on fair skin. one should stick to coral and pink if you are a bit pale.

2. medium skin

medium skin looks great with warm tones and colors, buying berry or rosy shades will do the best for you!

3. Dark skin

Dark skin looks best in brown or purple shades but yes one can wear a bold lips buy sporting red.

Eyebrow shapes for your face!! (Day 40)

Hey guys! so i noticed i’ve not posted on make-up tips for a long time so I thought today I will talk about it! so i was just googling some fashion illustrations for my project and i came across different eyebrow shapes drawing and i wondered what shape suits me and for my face type! Eyebrow is incredibly important part now when doing make-up. Everyone has a different eyebrow shape, so people will look better in that certain type than copying the style of the celebrity. photo 3 photo 2 photo 5 photo 6 photo 1 photo 4
