I am back with the 2nd Favorite product, as I mentioned yesterday its the most amazing waterproof eyebrow product.
Its the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow (Pomade) Its creamy constancy which helps build and fill in your eyebrows. I personally didn’t know how much of a difference groomed filled-in eyebrows make to complete the look. I used to use lip pencils to fill in my eyebrows and to be honest it looked horrible, it made me look like a devil lol.
The above picture I have actually put in few options depending on what look you like. The Makeup forever and Anastasia dipbrow is a gel / pomade type consistency and the Anastasia brow wiz is a pencil / crayon. The Gel helps to draw in helping you to give the hair like effect if you have a bald spot where as the pencil just helps you fill in place where you have sparse hair.
On days where I like to have a full on glam makeup I used the gel and for simple morning look I used the brow wiz. In the picture above I have used the Anastasia dip brow.
I use the Morphe S25 brush (mentioned in my last post) and sketched my eyebrow and draw on my bald spot like I was mimicking the eyebrow hair (you can not see it as the pigmentation is amazing and no matter what you do it will not budge)
The size of this product is 4.0g / 0.14oz. You can use this for life as little goes a long way. So if you ask if its worth the hype then my answer will be YES.
My next favorite that I will talk about is primers.
Happy New Year 2014 to all my readers.
I am doing my 2nd post of my favorite products of the month.
December was a little calm for me didnt really experiment much I guess even I wanted a break (maybe not) LOLz cause I still have my favorite products for the month of December to share 😉
So the 1st product is
1) Koleston hair colour – I have been colouring my hair for about 2 years now and I prefer doing it at home as I really dont trust much salons in hair colouring as they keep adding stuffs to the hair and it gets dry and brittle. Its not like I haven’t coloured or highlighted my hair in the salon I have done full head highlights , crown highlights and colouring my bangs but then I realized that my hair started to break alot. Koleston is a product I have been using for about 2 years now and I really love it, it doesnt make my hair dry or brittle. The best part about this is its in a foam style. You can use it as if you are shampooing your hair. You got to leave it for 40 mins – 50 mins depending on how deep you want the colour to be (but do not keep the colour for more then 50 mins as it can damage the hair, read the instructions if you are not sure). One thing you will notice that after the application you might not find or find a very little difference in the colour but not to worry as after each wash the colour enhances and gets more prominent which is what I love about it. I use the colour 7/0 medium blonde.
2) Ceramic Blow drying hair brushes – I have heard alot about these brushes but didnt use them till now. I had also got one with my makeup kit but still didnt bother to use it till recently. After using it I was like ‘why havent I used this amazing brush before’ It makes hair drying and styling super smooth and easy and doesnt break a lot of hair during the process. I know giving alot of heat to your hair is harmful but then you have heat protection spray/serum to help them from damage. It gives an amazing natural bounce and curl to the hair. I have a fat and a thin brush. Fat helps to create nice bounce and waves to the hair and the thin helps to style your bangs. You can also use the thin brush to curl a small part of you hair. (By picking a small part of your hair from the side of your ears and curling it if you plan to do a updo)
3) MAC Studio Fix Foundation and Powder foundation (Compact Powder)- I started to use MAC cosmetics in 2011 and since then no looking back. I love how it create an even canvas to the face. It is a full coverage foundation and the compact is semi coverage. If I need a more sophisticated look I use both the foundation and then compact to set the look and if I need just a simple everyday look I just use the compact powder (it doesn’t covers all the blemishes and dark circles but lightens it to an extent, but if you want you can conceal your blemishes and dark circles and then set it with the powder). I am a NC 42 in foundation and NC43.5 in the compact powder.
And last but not the least
4) Sleek 3 in 1 Blush in Pumpkin – I am in love with the blush palette as it has 3 colours Orange, Red and Pink. It is travel friendly and you dont have to think to carry individual blushes as these colours can go on everything just mix and match. They are so pigmented that you have to be careful when you apply as you can end up having a lot of the product on your face. This product is so amazing that it speaks for itself.
‘That’s all for my December favs.
Till next time ..stay safe and blessed
Happy New Year Once again
