Highlighted lips

Lipstick is easy to apply and will turn you from Plain Jane to Femme Fatale in no time. Since days are getting hotter, your face needs only little or no make-up. That's when lipsticks come in. All colors are in. Darker skin looks for darker lipstick. You can use pretty much any shade that's not lighter than your skin tone. That's basically the only rule. And I'm going to give you few tips for beautiful lips.
  • For a fuller lips look, outline the lips with pencil and fill in with the matching lipstick. Put just a bit of light concealer in the middle of the lips and tap it in until it blends with the rest of the color. You should get an ombre effect. For even more full lips, put on a transparent lip-gloss.
  • To make your lipstick stay longer on your lips, before it, put a bit of liquid powder to matte your lips.
  • If you want to highlight or correct your lipstick, put a bit of concealer just outside the lips. This will create sharper lines and boundary between lips and the rest of the skin. Other than that, you will disable lipstick going over the lip boundary.
  • For an additional effect of volume, on the edge of the upper lip put a bit of highlighter.
Of course, don't forget to take care of your lips with balsams, preferably with sun protection in these days.

Review - facial lotion and BB cream

Our face should be the most important thing when it comes to beauty care. It is the first thing everybody sees on us and face plays an important role in whether we look tired, old, happy, or any other emotion.
I've bought two new products for facial care, I've been trying them for a week and I can now say something about them.
Note before reading: Both products are by Garnier but I do not advertise them or have any profit by doing this.
First one is Pure active purifying lotion. It is suppose to clean your facial skin, close your pores and give your skin the matte effect. I personally chose it for the matte effect because my skin really glows, but cleaning my skin with it was a nice bonus. What is kinda unusual, it removes all the extra oil from your skin, leaving it really smooth, but the natural shine stays. At first I wasn't too satisfied with it because I'm trying to remove all the shine, but then I realized that with the shine I look fresh, young as I am and, most important of all, healthy.
This pure active formula for clean skin, comes in more than one shape.
My routine with it is the following: I put on some cream in the evening, leave it for the night. As I wake up, my skin is really oily and then I use this lotion which cleans all excess oil and cream and, without any make-up, I'm ready to go.
My next new product is BB Pure Active pigmented cream. I personally do not believe in "pigmented cream", it's all powder and foundation to me, but it has small differences and few better qualities than usual foundation. This cream has a light formula which is absolutely perfect for these hot summer days. It is easily applied and it doesn't smother your face. It absorbs into the skin pretty quickly and stays like that for quite a long time.
It also comes in variety of shades for every skin type.
After I finish taking care of my skin, I can apply only small amount of these cream and I instantly look like I have no imperfections on my skin.

Before you go away, here is a good Garnier site where you can find products to suit your skin:
P.S. Read all ingredients and way to use this products. Also consult with your doctor, pharmacist,... You never know how this will react on your skin.
