Lips Make up

Lips make up should be in contrast with the face make up and your dress.

  • Lip pencil:
    You should choose a lip pencil that matches the shade of lipstick. Choose a bit darker shade than the shade of lipstick.

  • Lipstick:
    They come in a variety of color. The color chosen must match not only with make up but also with the dress you are wearing.


  • Before applying lipstick, prime your lips with some foundation and powder to remove all color from your lips.

  • Outline your lips using a sharp lip liner pencil. The shade of your pencil should be same as that of lipstick.

  • For the upper lips, start from the centre and move out towards the corner of the mouth.

  • For the lower lip, work from side to side.

  • Take some lipstick into a brush and fill along the outline of the lips. For the upper lip, start from the centre and work outwards and for the lower lip, work from side to side.

  • Don’t apply too much of color.

  • Open your mouth wide and brush the color into the corners, so the edges must not remain unfilled.

  • Use Vaseline or cream to give shine to your lips after applying lipstick.

Tips to be followed:

  • Heavy eye make up should be balanced with the soft lip color and to compliment soft eye make up, wear rich colored lipstick.

  • To avoid smudging, apply foundation on your lips before applying lipstick.

  • Blot your lips with tissue paper for natural looks.

  • For a different look, you can use shining lip liner.

Shaping up of lips:

  • Shaping lips can make you look attractive.

  • For thick lips: This type of lip appear smaller if you draw the outline just within the natural shape. You must use medium toned lip color and avoid dark brows, plums and pale shimmer shades .

  • For thin lips: They can be easily corrected by taking the pencil outside the natural lip line. Work on it slowly and steadily to get the perfect shape. Fill in with the lipstick. A highlight of frosting on the upper lip would create an impression of fullness .

  • For shapeless lips: Try to make the most flattering shape by stressing the centre of the lips and then fill.

  • Lip care:
    Massage your lips with coriander leaf juice to make it soft and rosy.
    Use lip primers to combat dry lips.
    Mix a pinch of crushed sugar in a little lip balm and apply it for fifteen minutes on your lips..

  • Dark lips:
    There are various reason for the lips to get dark that is the use of cheap brand of lipstick, heavy application of lipstick, sun exposure, drinking tea or coffee in excess. The prime cause of dark lips is smoking. Check whether you are not wearing expired lipstick. It can also be due to dryness and allergy. For maintaining red lips, fresh air, vitamins and iron are required. Keep your lips free from lipstick as much as you can. Take plenty of fruits and vegetables.

Wedding Make up

Wedding makeup
The big day is coming – take the chance and to look the most beautiful. Not much since he proposed. Try the wedding dress on for the last time. Everything already arranged. What about special makeup?The main stress is to be given on the makeup part. No matter your experience or lack of experience in the field of makeup, it is the inevitable part of the preparations. You are wondering whether to count on yourself or look for help at the beautician. It is up to you, but remember – you don’t have got any time for experiments. If you hasn’t treated your skin properly before wedding, there is nothing you or a professional can do. You do not have to visit solarium before the ceremony, especially if you hasn’t used it before.Prebridal is considered necessery before the wedding ceremony. It’s better to match dress’ colour to your skin than have your skin irritated by artificial light just before the wedding. But when you go to the beautician ask them to try out the latest invention – Air Brush which provides a nice coulour by applying pigment in the form of mist. Compressors, spray guns, bronzing fluids – these are the things the beautician needs to create perfect tan without spots or patches. The tan will last up to 7 days.
What’s your dream wedding makeup? Delicate or extravagant? Remember that wedding makeup is aimed at making you more beautiful not changing you. If you do not use makeup at all or your everyday makeup is delicate, do not decide on extravagance and the other way round.
Try to use make up which is water proof because sometimes the water spoils the whole makeup ask your make up experts to use waterproof makeup. What to do to be able to cry with happiness without worrying about your makeup? Personally, I advise to rely on a professional beautician. Let her be responsible for the overall effect. If you can afford it – do not hesitate.
If you still have doubts, let yourself be put to the wedding makeup test. It isn’t obligatory – especially if you know the beautician and trust her. During the test for me it’s a clue how to make the bride’s face. Therefore, the test lasts longer than applying the makeup on the wedding day.
During the test I analyze the individual colouring of my client. I examine what colours emphasise her appearance type. It depends mostly how the appearance of a person is if it has got a dark complexion if it has a wheatish appearance if he does have a fair complexion. Finally, I propose a set of the most suitable colours. You may use the set later on when buying clothes or cosmetics. If you haven’t had the chance to undergo a colour analysis – do it now, before your wedding. Proper colours will make your physical appearance more important than your clothes.
Wedding makeup should be delicate, radiant and fresh. The colours depend on your appearance type, your wedding dress and accessories you’ve chosen. If you want a little extravagance – remember it to be balanced and match your look! Dark use of the lipsticks faden the wedding charms of the bride some womens avoid using eye shadows or a lipstick. They are afraid they won’t look natural or their partner will be displeased, as he always says: "You look best without makeup". If he pays such a compliment just before the wedding, do not treat it too seriously. Take care of yourself just as women do – men won’t understand it anyway. But they admire final effects!
If you don’t like strong makeup, I have good news for you. Modern makeup should be invisible. A woman ought to look fresh, natural, elegant, so makeup is just a complement of her image. Natural makeup will emphasize your beauty, and you we’ll be well groomed and more confident.
So, a Bride to be, I wish you looked the most beautiful in the world not only on this very special day, but throughout the whole life.

How To Get Rid of Unwanted Pimples

How to Clean:

  • Wash your face with a gentle, oil- and fragrance-free cleanser; preferably a non detergent one labeled pH balanced.
  • If you have oily skin all over your face, use a cleanser that contains benzoil peroxide or salicylic acid.
  • Don't scrub - irritated skin swells around the pores, which can cause breakouts.
  • Skip toner unless your face is very oily, otherwise it might dry out the skin.

How to Treat:

  • Apply a topical acne treatment containing benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, or salicylic acid over your entire face, not just where blemishes have already erupted.
  • At night, use a drying spot-treatment product and dab oil-free moisturizer on dry areas.
  • In the morning, apply an oil-free sunscreen gel over the entire face.

How to Conceal:

  • Use a small makeup brush to dab concealer or cream foundation (in the exact same shade as your skin) directly onto the blemish. Use a fingertip to wipe away excess concealer around the blemish and, if necessary, apply another coat of concealer.
  • If the makeup becomes cakey, carefully wipe it off and start over. gently brush powder (in the exact same shade as your skin) on top of the concealer.

Secret Tips:

  • If you have oily skin and feel that you need toner, apply it only on the T-zone, and rinse it off afterward (leaving it on can dry the skin turn back the clock). Use a clay mask as often as every three days to absorb excess oil.
  • To stop redness and swelling in an emergency situation (job interview, wedding), ask your doctor for a cortisone injection. It calms down a pimple almost instantly.
  • If you can't get to your dermatologist (or needles make you squeamish), temporarily reduce redness and swelling by dabbing on a drop of drugstore cortisone cream, Preparation H, or Vasocon-A eye drops.
