Set the Foundation
The first step in achieving this look involves application of BB cream. Make sure that your face is clean and the skin moisturized. Apply the foundation and wait for a few minutes before applying tinted moisturizer. The idea is for your skin to retain its natural tone without looking uneven. For best results, make sure that you blend both the cream and moisturizer with clean fingertips.
Take care of Blemishes
If you are going down the no-makeup route, then you can’t keep piling layer upon layer of concealer on your face to hide one blemish! Everything must look natural and you can achieve this look by using a hydrating concealer. Use a small amount and cover any blemishes with its help.
The right way of applying concealer is to wait several minutes after you have moisturized your skin. Next, dab the concealer with light movements and wait for several minutes again. Lastly, start gently tapping the concealed area to help it blend in.
No Powder at all
The best way to approach a no-makeup look is by keeping away from all sorts of powders. This means that you can’t use your favorite shade of blush, if it is in powdered form. Instead, reach for the cream blush that will leave your skin with a natural looking glow.
It is easy to apply cream blushes and you can do it by hand or with a brush, depending on whichever makes you more comfortable. Begin with your cheeks, applying the blush at the apples and using forward with upward strokes to cover the hairline.
Try to keep the color on the front of your face, so that it makes you look younger. If you want to visualize what the blush should look like, then you can use the color of your flushed face after exercise as your guide.
Eyebrows Come Next
Once you are done with the blush application, it will be time to focus on your eyebrows. The first thing that you need to do is comb them, so you can spot any missing hair. If you find nay, lightly fill them with a gel. Too much gel and the whole focus of the look will be stolen by your eyebrows. The idea is to leave behind brows that are well defined.
Go Easy on the Rest
You can choose between skipping eyeliner or applying some on the top lash line. Next, apply brown-black mascara to curled top lashes. Complete the look with some tinted lip balm applied to the lips.

Size matters when it comes to the windows of your soul.
You don’t need a plastic surgeon referral to bigger eyes. You just need to get in on a few nifty skincare and makeup tips.
Let us count the ways.
1. Puffy eyes tend to make those peepers appear smaller so get rid of those unsightly eye bags at all cost. Applying cool slices of cucumber or even a bag of frozen peas under the eyes will do the trick. Chilled SK-II Signs Eye Mask is the fuss-free alternative.
2. Dab on a smudge of primer to reduce the appearance of fine lines. Eradicate dark eye circles with the right concealer – do slightly lighter and warmer than your skin tone to correct blur or purple tones. Blend Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat under and around the eyes for a uniform base.
3. Open up the eyes with a curler. Just by lifting the lashes the eyes instantly appear bigger and bright. To intensify the look, lengthen lashes with two coats of mascara. Try CoverGirl LashBlast Clump Crusher Mascara.
4. Don’t just line the top lashes. Drawing the perfect line on the lower lashes for the perfect almond-shaped eyes. Smudge out at the outer ends for a subtle lift.
5. Most importantly, fill the waterline with the Nars Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner white eye pencil to seriously open up those eyes.
How to sun proof your mien
We already know that the sun is the biggest culprit for
We already know that the sun is the biggest culprit for premature ageing so what can we do about it? Dermatologists will have you know that wearing sunscreen is the single most effective way against sun protection, not to mention that it is the basis of proper skin care.
Often you’ll find sun protection formulas differentiated by SPF denominations. SPF essentially stands for ‘sun protection factor’, a measure of how well the sunscreen protects the skin. A minimum of 30 SPF is recommended by dermatologist.
However, if you’re swimming or perspiring, it is advisable to reapply as often as every two hours to optimize sun protection. A broad-spectrum formula that helps block out UVB and UVA rays which are the primary causes for sunburns, wrinkling and ageing.
Using the right amount of sunscreen is vital. A rule of thumb would be that you need approximately a dollop the size of a quarter to cover the face. Don’t step out right away after applying sunscreen, give it at least 20 minutes to get absorbed into the skin. Wear makeup over sunscreen as the finishing touch.
A modern take on an age-old nail favourite
A modern take on an age-old nail favourite
Updated and thoroughly modern, the classic nude-and-white French isn’t exactly making a comeback, rather it’s being reimagined and the possibilities are endless.
French manicures of now are an art on its own thanks to colours, metallic, graphic sharps and negative space. They are anything but basic. French tips work best on nail’s natural oval or round shapes but that’s not to say square tips cannot benefit all the same. Simply move the tip to the side for a funky asymmetrical slant.
Take border nail art all the way lining the entire nail from the tip to sides to wrap around the nail bed for a bold take on graphics. Play up on colour contrast to push the style envelope further.
For a more painterly approach, use a nail art brush to create lines from the French coloured tip. Set the lines with a dry brush to blend the lines with the tip. Allow design to dry for five minutes before applying a top coat.
The cornerstone of nail art, French manicure has always been, and will continue to inspire nail art.
