How to choose a lipstick pencil


Every woman will put a whole lot of thought into her lipstick colors and shades, but not as many will put so much thought into their lipstick pencil or liner. Before you go to the store and choose a lipstick pencil, it’s important to take a few things into account:

1. Think about the shade of lipstick that this lipstick pencil or liner is going to be used with. …If you already know what shade of lipstick you need a lipstick pencil for, take it with you to the store and try to either: match the lipstick pencil shade as closely to the lipstick color, or opt for a “nude” lipstick pencil.

TIP :– Neutral shades work on almost anyone and with almost any lipstick color or shade. Every woman should have at least one neutral or “nude” shade of lip liner or pencil in her makeup kit.

2. Lip liners come in a number of different forms, the lipstick pencil being only one of the many forms that are around. You can also find lip liners as a lip paint, a lip smudge, or even have lip liner permanently tattooed onto your face. Of all of the choices, the lipstick pencil is certainly the most popular given that it draws the most defined lines and is relatively easy to use (as long as it is well sharpened!). Continue reading

Skin care in Monsoon


Use a face scrub twice a week to exfoliate.
Avoid heavy moisturising creams or oily foundations and cream-based colour makeup. Use a light mousse or a matte compact or simply a few drops of calamine lotion as a makeup base.
A facewash containing alpha hydroxyl acid (like Ahaglow) helps to freshen the skin, but do not use it more than once a day.
Use a toner each time you wash your face to close the pores and restore your skin’s pH balance.
Chemical peels (skin treatment performed by dermatologists) are also an excellent way to freshen up dull skin and the monsoon is the best weather for them — there is no risk of sun exposure and sensitivity after the peeling session. There are a variety of peels available nowadays — skin-lightening peels, acne peels, peels for sensitive skin, arginine peels for under-eye circles etc. Ask your dermatologist for details.
Have a healthy monsoon!
