#NO CONTOUR MAKEUP#

What is the latest craze in the makeup industry? What’s the one word you hear in almost every makeup tutorial?  

CONTOUR!!!

So I did a makeup application in which I didn’t contour at all.  I did however shape my brows as I cannot embrace those misshapen things, plus I didn’t apply any falsies.

So this is what I ended up with.

Here is my CONTOUR-LESS look!

My Nina joining in on the fun!

Nina is such a diva!

So I have on: Foundation, mascara, blush, shaped brows, lipstick.

             I think overall this look is good for an everyday easy application.  Look, I enjoy wearing falsies on a daily basis, even if it’s just on the outer half of my lash line .  I doubt I’ll go falsie-less on a permanent basis.

The whole post is about not contouring, and I think, I can embrace it.  Unlike many women, I don’t mind my big nose at all.  It doesn’t function whatsoever… having chronic sinusitis and all, but it’s there.  Anyway, would I stop contouring all together? Nope!  I think contouring is great!  Remember when every makeup artist would tell you to blend, blend and blend in their tutorials and so forth?  Well, that still holds true, but if you’re into contouring, please do it properly and BLEND  the CONTOUR.

And if you don’t contour at all, well, that’s your decision.  It’s not the end of the world if you’re indeed a minimalistic makeup user.

If you ARE into CONTOURING, please learn from the best makeup artist, Samer Khouzami and celebs like Lilly Ghalichi.

#COLORFUL EYE MAKEUP OK FOR DAY TIME :)

Me Again!

Have you ever looked at your colorful eyeshadows and thought you don’t use them as often as you’d like? Many times we buy colorful pigments as it ‘catches our eye’ but hardly ever find an opportunity or an occasion to use them.

Yes, sometimes a colorful eye liner is all you need to bring out that ‘POP’ effect we all want, but the thought of using more than one color may seem terribly overwhelming. Is it? In fact, using more than one color on the eyes, if done correctly, can look quite subtle.

Here is my version of a colorful eye makeup totally okay for a day look. Using INGLOT pigments in the colors of yellow, green, blue and purple may seem like quite a lot on one makeup plate, but let the pics speak for themselves. Hope you enjoy 🙂

So as you can see, with all the blending it’s not actually that ‘OTT’.
