Tips and Tricks Thursday:  How to Make Vibrant or Dark Colored Lippies Wearable

Panama + New Orleans

Ever owned a vibrant or dark-colored lippie you seldom use because it’s too bright or it doesn’t match your skin tone? No worries! here’s how you can mix and match them for a more wearable neutral hue.

How to Effectively Remove Makeup using Pixi Nourishing Cleansing Balm

A balm as a cleanser? That was one of the first things that came to mind when I received the Pixi Nourishing Cleansing Balm from Pixi Skintreats. I normally use makeup removers for sensitive skin like the Bioderma Sensibio H20 and Avene Gentle Milk Cleanser and I have never really tried a solid product as my first step to cleansing my skin.

We’ve got the perfect look to go with those flirty summer dresses and colorful crop tops this season! Glamourblogger and Makeup Artist Extraordinaire Sylvina Lopez teaches us how to do a sultry neutral look that is anything-but-basic on resident glambabe, Angel.

1. Prep: First prep the skin by moisturizing and priming, I
worked in a thin layer of the Maq Pro Makeup Mixer to moisturize, then I patted
in some Rimmel Stay Matte on the T-zone.

2. Illuminate: Then put a thin layer of the Pixi Flawless
Primer
, before foundation, to give the effect of a glow from within

3. Foundation: Then I used a flat top kabuki / buffing brush
and I worked in a layer of L’oreal True Match foundation which is a medium
opaque coverage foundation. I buffed the foundation on circles all over the
face and then dabbed in areas that needed more coverage.

4. Eyes: I used the Pop Beauty Bright Up Your Life palette
to emphasize the eyes. Washing a shimmery shade all over the lid and a neutral
brown blended in the crease.

5. Brows: For a softer but still defined brow I used the Pop Brow Shape and Shade with a fine angled brush to fill in and add some texture.

6. Liner & Lashes: I buffed in a black gel liner pencil
into the lash line and put the Eye of Horus Sahara Nude on the Waterline. To
open the eyes up more I gave the lashes a good curl and two coats of mascara.
To finish the eyes of I put some Dolly Wink half-lashes for hassle free
definition.

7. Conceal & Powder: I used the L.A. girl Pro Conceal to
color correct any dark shadows and clean up any fall out. I then set the base
by pressing the RCMA no color powder in with a velour puff.

8. Strobing and Contour: I then defined the face by using a
small powder brush and blending in the Pixi Natural Contour Powder. I focused
on the hollow of the cheek, temples/forehead and the jaw. To highlight, I
tapped a bit more of the Pixi Primer and topped it with the Ofra You Glow Girl
Highlight
using a fan brush for a more dramatic glow. I also used a small
pencil brush and put highlighter in the inner corner of the eye.

9. Lips: Lastly, I mixed two Pop Matte Velvet Lipstix, Novel Nude and
Sienna Spice
, to get a lovely peachy nude that really complimented the golden
tones of the entire look.

Sylvina
