Lip MakeUp Issues

Alisa Beauty, what are your Best Lipstick Ever?

The most favourite lipstick of mine is Russian Red by Mac. I cannot live a day without putting on such a lipstick. I feel increadible having such a makeup.

How to Put on a Lipstick Correctly?

  • Pay special attention to lip pencil. With it lipstick effect will last longer, and contours will be clear and smooth. Liner should match in shade with lipstick or with your lips tone.
  • Before using a nude lipstick, you can fill by means of a contour liner the maximum area of lips or apply a special base to keep effect for longer.
  • If you apply a red or dark lipstick, first fill natural contours of lips with lipstick, and then draw contours with a liner. In this case, you will mix formula of both products, and makeup will keep for longer. If you first apply a liner, then with time lipstick is faded, and contour remains, since its composition is usually more dense.
  • To give your lips a visual volume, use lipgloss. Depending on the desired result, cover all lips with it or put a stroke on center of lower lip.
  • Do you want to achieve maximum durability? Already lips with lipstick put moisture with a dry napkin and apply a little powder, then another layer of lipstick should be made.
  • So that for lipstick not to printed on teeth, at the very end, also use a plain napkin. Twist it with a roll, grab it tightly with your lips and pull it out. So all the excess will remain on napkin, and not on teeth.

What Should Include Daily Skin Care?

I take use of 4-step process of skin care daily. I am glad to share it with you.

  1. Cleaning: Clean your face in the morning and in the evening. In the morning – you are preparing your skin for makeup, in the evening – for a night cream. By means of cleansing, your skin gets free from imperfections. In the evening, cleansing removes make-up, the dirt that gets on face during the day, cleansed skin will be ready for maximum perception of a night cream. The face should be cleaned with gels, mousses. They almost do not damage normal skin acidity and penetrate deep into pores.
  2. Toning: After cleaning face, it is necessary to wipe it with a tonic (lotion). Toning is an important process of everyday face care, for skin of any type, it should be made after each cleansing – twice a day: morning and evening. Even if face is very oily, preference should be given to non-ethanol lotions. Ethanol not only dries out normal and dry skin, but also enhances oily skin sebaceous glands activity. Dry skin should also be treated with a tonic after cleansing considering your type of skin.
  3. Moisterizing and Protection: Day cream is used in the morning or afternoon, both under make-up, and without it, about half an hour before going out. It should cover not only face, but neck as well. The film that appears on skin after putting on day cream performs a protective function, under it skin suffers less from environmental meteorological factors, dust and dirt. In addition, day cream prevents water evaporation from skin surface, helps maintain its hydration sufficient level.
  4. Skin Nutrition: In the evening, after cleansing and toning, night cream is applied. Night creams are classified as “nutritious”. They are selected in accordance with skin type and condition. Night cream is applied 1-2 hours before bedtime; if it is not completely absorbed, the remainder should be soaked with a napkin. As in case of day cream, it is applied either face or neck.

Some Beauty Tricks

What Makeup Recommendations May you Give to Look Admirable?

  • We know that hair will look more increadible only when making hot styling, so why not do the same with eyelashes? If you want eyelashes kept all day like “wings”, then pre-heat curlers with a hair dryer.
  • In order not to spoil eyes makeup, press a business card to eyelid before you put on mascara. It helps to get rid of mascara excess.
  • Even an unsuitable shade of lipstick can be turned into a favorite. Do not like too light shades? Cover your lips with liner of the same color, and then apply lipstick – so it will seem darker. If, on the contrary, lipstick seems too bright, then soften its tone with a transparent balm or pearlescent lip gloss.
  • If you want a concealer did not emphasize wrinkles under the eyes follow simple rules: use a napkin to remove remains of cream on eyelids and gently press concealer with a brush or sponge. Makeup will be even more persistent, if you fix concealer with friable powder under eyes.
