Knowing that two or three lipcolours is all I want is in fact making me giddy and happy! I’ve went through my makeup case again and de-clutter it (just as before). I decided that for over-all function, MAC’s Chili is way better as an night time lip shade than So Chaud for some occasions.
Chili is more of a vintage night look vs So Chaud is more evening ‘glam’ – I’m keeping all three in my makeup case, but have decided to post two photos of a complete day vs evening makeup look. For evening because it has a spicy depth Chili is a very advanced/elegant color.
- Mix into the favourite foundation to include shine and enhance tonality
- O Generally, benign growths can be removed. They often do not develop back
- 2 tsp sandalwood essential oil
- What is the source of energy being enforced and could it be from a non-renewable or renewable source
So Chaud is more of a brighter orange red, while Chili can be an orange-brownish red. My goal this season is to really make my makeup and style functional – make it personal and unique if you ask me. This yr is approximately simplifying my entire life, decluttering what fails and therefore, making room for what ‘does’ work – these two lipsticks have never steered me wrong and appearance great with my whole wardrobe. Exactly what will I instead do? Start focusing on style, fashion, creating a straightforward and functional wardrobe that is true to my best colour palette! When you have any blog requests for me also – I’d love to hear!
And it doesn’t help our weather is so humid it actually takes a bit longer than in drier cooler climates. I usually apply my basis and concealer, then move on to brows and eye makeup before I reach for the setting powder. This not only gives your foundation time to set a bit more (it will last better and appearance less cakey cos less powder will cling to it later), it does mean it isn’t be sliding and shifting a lot.
Think of nail polish. Sometimes the surface has set but the bottom hasn’t so it will smear and change if you apply pressure to it too soon. Same with many foundations, those with a heavier coverage especially. And if it’s uber warm and you don’t have air-conditioning to prevent your skin from sweating, don’t powder yet.
Wait until you are in the car/bus/teach where it is cooler and you’ve halted sweating. Lightly press dried out tissue on your face to blot any excess moisture before you natural powder. Nothing good ever comes out of powdering clammy sweaty skin. Lastly, less powder is more. ESPECIALLY here where we go from hot to frosty and back to hot even as we travel to and from air-conditioned conditions. We like to think there is a magic powder or bottom that will stay flawless after we perspiration and get greasy but – I haven’t discovered that magic product yet.
Everything creases fades and smears to different extents and the lighter your base is (and the less powder you utilize), the less obvious it is when the fading smearing and creasing happens. Heavily-powdered base is “inflexible” as soon as it creases and cracks or shifts and looks patchy, it is rather hard to repair and smooth out.
This is especially true for drier skin areas and around expression lines. Easier to get a longwear foundation and a light natural powder when compared to a regular foundation and heavy matte stage-makeup powder to make it last. Oh it WILL longer last. But it won’t look good close-up, and who would like long-lasting ugly coverage?
Lastly, use a very soft brush and incredibly VERY lightly pat your brush over your skin to press minimal powder in. The main point is to lock it down, not mix it up. If your foundation fits your skin flawlessly and doesn’t get cakey you can buff all you have to.
