Each season calls for updated skincare and hair care routine. And summer season is almost upon us and we have already started to count down the days till monsoon arrives as it gives us a much-needed relief from hot and sweaty summer days. As much as we are fond of this season, it can also prove to be a nightmare for our skin and hair. The increased levels of humidity can pose a threat to your skin and hair which can result in numerous hair and skin woes. While the change in season calls for new skincare and hair care routine, it turns out; your makeup routine also has to go under a few tweaks so that it can look more weather appropriate.
Monsoon season can be your foundation’s worst enemy. The increased level of humidity in combination with the excessive oil produced from your skin can result in your foundation becoming oxidized. It’s quite a common problem to face during monsoon but fret not, you will not end up looking like an orange-faced commuter if you abide by these makeup tips to prevent your foundation from oxidizing during monsoon.

Tone and moisturize


Prepping your face is one of the most crucial steps to follow to achieve the desired results. Toning and moisturizing are the two most important steps to follow to prep your skin. After cleaning your face properly, make sure to apply a hydrating and alcohol-free toner to your face. Follow it up by a lightweight and oil-free moisturizer. Not prepping your face properly can make your skin look either too patchy or oily; therefore, you have to be very careful here. After following these skin prepping steps, make sure to wait for a few minutes to let your skin soak in the products or else, the sticky base will make your face look orange.

Apply primer


Applying primer is one of the most important steps to follow in this makeup routine. It will come to your rescue in more ways than you know. This step is to be followed after prepping your skin and before applying makeup. A primer acts as a barrier between skin and makeup. It prevents the ingredients of your foundation to get mixed up with the natural oils produced from your skin. Primer also helps in providing a soft base which makes the application easier and smoother. Look for a primer in a waterproof and silicone-based formula to achieve flawless makeup finish.

Apply foundation


Now that your skin is well-prepped for the application of foundation, you can apply the product to all over your face. Even after following all the needed steps, if your foundation is still turning orange then you need to switch your foundation with a different shade. Instead of picking a foundation that is one shade lighter, pick a foundation that is two shades lighter so that when it oxidizes, it will match your skin tone perfectly. Also, use makeup brush or fingers to apply the foundation, using wet beauty sponge can worsen the situation. You can use a blotting paper to get rid of the excess product on your face.

Mattify it using a compact


It’s very important to set your foundation using a compact. Whether or not you are a fan of these face powders, following this step is extremely crucial as it mattifies the base and locks the product in. Lightly dab the compact all over your face and it will give you a long-lasting and matte finish. This tiny product can come extremely handy on several occasions and it’s also very convenient to carry in your bag. When your face starts to appear shiny, you can simply dab the powder lightly over that area and you will be good to go.

Exfoliate Your Skin-

Sometimes our natural glow hides beneath the layers of dead skin cells that just accumulate over time. Hence, exfoliating is an absolute must. When you are exfoliating you are getting rid of the dead skin cell thus making your old glow bring back. But, make sure you never over-exfoliate your skin. Over-exfoliation can dry out your skin making it even more tedious. Exfoliate your skin twice a week if you use physical scrubbing and once a week if you use chemical exfoliation.

The key to get a naturally glowing skin is hydration. No matter what skin type you have you can never dare to skip a moisturizer. For that naturally hydrating and glowing skin apply a moisturizer twice a day. You can choose from tons of formulations targeting different skin types or go for serums and oils but to make a healthy skin barrier never skip the moisturizer.

So, that were sterling but easy to follow tips that you can upgrade in your skincare regimen to get that naturally glowing skin and that too with minimal makeup.

We all have by now understood the need for skincare. However, misleading promotions and product launch have made us wonder what to get and what not to. Therefore, it becomes important for us to play our role and guide you in the best manner possible. Thus, today we have got some of the skincare products that you must use since your later teenage to maintain a good, smooth, none- textured skin for the elderly days to come. Even if you are in your later twenties, that is the perfect time to begin the usage of these if not before. So let’s get on with the list of things you need.

Oil-Based Cleanser

One must get the oil-based cleanser especially if you apply foundation on your face. Even people with oily skin should use an oil-based cleanser with make-up. The reason is we do apply matt products on our face and not the creamy ones. So the matt products don’t come off easily. Therefore the oil-based cleanser easily remover the make-up from the face. The oil in it helps the products to meltdown thus, it comes off easily. Any skin type can use this cleanser. Besides, when we use wet wipes we do need to rub our skin to get off the products. Oil-based cleansers are gentle on your skin.

Gel-based cleanser

Gel-based cleansers are the lightest cleanser for any skin time. Every skin type, dry, normal, combination, and oily, these cleansers are the need of every skin. If you apply make-up frequently then you must go for a second cleansing. This will make sure that all the products are off your skin and you can apply skincare or make-up products on it. The gel-based cleansers are usually none foaming. So if you like foaming then you need to check its specifications.

Exfoliator

A good exfoliator is necessary for the deep skin cleansing day. Even though you have got products which suggest daily exfoliator but you should not do this process every day. The same applies to the people who have oily porous skin. Everyday exfoliation means you are deep cleansing your face every day, first of all, it is a wastage of time and then the skin damage. Over of each and everything is bad for the skin. Thus you should never in life make the mistake of everyday deep cleans. For others, you must do this step once in a week and twice for oily skin. Anything more than that will be not good.

Serum

You would have heard people bragging about how serums have really made a change in their skin and life. It is true a serum can make your skin healthier than before. Especially if it has biotin and Vitamin C in it. However, don’t fall for any serum bottle which has vitamin C on it. Make sure you read the ingredients and the quantity of each ingredient before you add it to the vanity. It is important to get the good stuff. There are hydrating serums so if you are not using a moisturizer then you can get another bottle of hydrating serum and apply it over your skin.

Sunscreen

The gift of the sun to our skin can be dealt with only the help of sunscreen. There are many types of sunscreen in the market, to get the ones that actually work on the skin you need to judge. Now how to judge a sunscreen will work on your skin. Check the label does it contain SPF 30 and above, anything less than that is of no use at all. SPF50 comes highly recommended. Along with it, you must see few sunscreens come with a PA+++ sign. The PA level is suggesting the protection from the Ultra violet rays of the sun. These rays cause aging, wrinkles on our skin, and the higher the PA level is the better protection you will have from the sun.

As warmer season upon us the blazing weather can take a toll on our skin. You need more than your CTM routine to keep your skin looking fresh and healthy. Our skin doesn’t have cordial relations with this weather and maybe that’s why it shows up with a fair share of problems that are just awful.

Well, we understand how it feels to see your skin starting developing signs of aging but it’s a natural process and eventually, you will have to face the harsh reality and embrace it like a pro. You do can delay the aging process but that will not stall it for a long time. Your eyes are probably the first areas on your face where the signs of aging start to appear and there’s nothing you can do about it except for concealing the area with the use of makeup.
Makeup is one of the most powerful tools to have by your side always, it can come handy on several occasions, which is why it’s always good to learn a few makeup tricks that can help you hide the problems and make your face look youthful and flawless in no time.
We have put together a list of a few eye makeup tips that will help you conceal the signs of aging and make you look youthful in an instant.

Shape your eyebrows in a different manner


Arched eyebrows have always been the most loved look amongst the girls for obvious reasons; it adds more definition to your face and enhances your features. But if you have started to develop signs of aging around your eyes, then it’s for best that you stay steer clear of arched eyebrows in order to make yourself look younger. Instead of giving your eyebrows an arched shape, try to give them a softer appearance and mimic the eyebrow look that you used to have when you were younger to make them look more natural. If you already have arched eyebrows then try to soften them up using a soft eyebrow pencil.

Switch to a brown eyeliner


A black eyeliner may have served you for years in the most loyal way but it’s time that you bid it goodbye. While black eyeliner can make your eyes look more defined and bold but when it comes to hiding signs of aging, it’s probably for best to stay away from this. Instead of using your typical black eyeliner, try switching to brown eyeliner that has a warm shade to it. Unlike black eyeliner, brown eyeliner won’t draw any unnecessary attention to the lines around your eyes or cast a lot of shadow, instead, it will help to brighten up the area and make you look much younger.

Nude pencil for the win!


A nude pencil has more uses to it than we probably know. It not only helps to make your eyes look bigger but it also makes you look younger. If you have been dealing with dark circles and tired eyes for quite some time now then it’s time that you switch your white or black eye pencil with a nude one. And also try to invest in a nude pencil that best matches your natural skin tone. Apply it on your lower waterline and see what magic it does to your face.

Use matte eyeshadows


As much as we love glittery and shimmer eyeshadows, they are not the most suitable choice for you when dealing with signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet. Stick to matte eyeshadow to create eye makeup looks. Applying glittery eyeshadow can draw a lot of attention to the problem areas and they also reflect light which could further emphasize the aging signs. Also, they can settle into those fine lines and wrinkles which could make things a lot more prominent and that’s not what we want.

We all are familiar with how important it is to get your makeup off before hitting the bed. But are you following it correctly? Do you include all the steps to get a squeaky clean face the next morning? It’s time to recheck on how you remove your makeup.
For a fresh start every morning it’s really important to remove every last bit off. By removing your makeup you are doing the ultimate favour on your skin. Leftover makeup is not the best thing for your skin; it can clog your face and exude a fair share of problems acne, wrinkles, blackheads, and whiteheads to name a few. Certainly, we all remove our makeup but the majority of us do it in the wrong way or not in a proper manner. Removing makeup includes getting even the last traces of makeup off! So, applying makeup doesn’t become an ordeal for your skin.
We have compiled a bunch of sterling tips from leading makeup experts that would be a guide on how to remove even the last traces off your skin. From eye makeup, base makeup, to getting your pout down we have included everything that comes under the head of a makeup removal.

Use A Makeup a Cleanser-


Your daily cleanser is not sufficient to remove makeup. As a makeup-removing agent, you need a product that is oil-based as oil can easily attract all the dirt and grime without leaving behind any residue, therefore oil-based cleansers are deemed to be perfect makeup remover. Massage it all over your face in circular motions focusing towards the sides of the nose, hairline, and under the chin, and leave it for about 10 minutes. Take a wet cotton cloth and wipe that all off.
Extra Attention on Eyes-
We often neglect our eyes but it’s really important to pay attention on your eyes as the toughest makeup products to be removed are applied on your eyes. Mascara and liner both are hard to get off. Don’t just vigorously scrub your eyes when removing eye makeup as the skin around the eyes is sensitive.
Use a gentle eye makeup remover and with the help of a cotton pad wipe that entire gunk off your eyes.

Double Cleansing-


After you’ve removed all your makeup with the makeup remover clean your face with the normal cleanser you use daily. As you are cleaning your face twice once with the makeup remover and once with the normal cleanser you’re double cleansing your face.
Double cleansing ensures that even the last traces of makeup are not left behind and you get a squeaky clean skin.

Avoid Baby Wipes-


It’s the very cringe to use baby wipes to remove your makeup. Baby wipes are a gentle stuff that don’t do the job of removing the right. Still, unknowingly it’s insignificance in removing makeup many women use them. For removing makeup you need a tough product that removes even the last bit off.

Be Gentle On Your Skin-

During all this makeup removing process, be gentle on your skin. While removing makeup you don’t need to be tough on your skin as it might affect the skin’s elasticity. Massage the makeup remover with light hands and using a circular motion that will ensure all the makeup is removed without pulling your skin. Go over all the same spots again that will loosen the makeup and you don’t have to go crazy while removing but make sure you don’t scrub back and forth. Always work in a circular direction.

Makeup is an art and it seriously takes an artist to get it right. Using makeup products to perfection takes some serious amount of practice and of course, skills. While we understand that applying makeup is no joke but you most certainly shouldn’t be afraid of using certain products that you fear of getting wrong with such as bronzer. You have got to believe us, bronzer is one heck of a product which is not only one of the essentials but it also helps in adding that perfect finish to your makeup look and makes you look no less than a glam diva. Bronzer can work magically for anyone, but even after knowing all the amazing things about this product, a lot of women gets afraid of using it in their makeup routine, why? Because the thought of looking like an Oompa looks scares them away. As long as you are applying the product the right way by following the right technique, there’s nothing that can stop you from achieving a healthy and sun-kissed glow on your skin. All it takes is learning the right bronzer application technique and you will become a pro at applying it no time.

Use a matte bronzer


First things first, if you have been using a bronzer for everyday use then make sure that you are using a matte formula. Using shimmery bronzer can look OTT which is absolutely not appropriate to be used on a daily basis. This is why you should stick with matte bronzer for everyday use especially the girls with oily and uneven skin texture. And make sure that you are not using a bronzer that is more than two shades darker to your skin tone. And if you want the bronzer to look a little shimmery then you always have the options to add a slight hint of highlighter on the top of it.

The choice of the brush really matters


You cannot get the bronzer application right unless you are using the right brush. It’s very important to use the right makeup brush to achieve that natural and healthy sun-kissed glow perfectly. While looking for a bronzer brush, make sure that it isn’t too dense or else it can end up picking a lot more product than required which will not provide the kind of finish you were trying to achieve. Look for a brush that is soft and fluffy and is angled at the top so that it can allow the product to be applied precisely whilst only picking the required amount of bronzer on its base.

Apply bronzer on the right spots


One of the most important things to know to get a bronzer application right is the spots. Applying the bronzer on the right spots is the key to perfecting your makeup look and achieving natural sun-kissed glow without actually looking burnt. Bronzer is usually applied to the area where sunlight would naturally hit and this includes your forehead, jawline, cheekbone, and the top of your nose. Just make sure that you are applying the product very carefully using light hand movement or else things can turn up really messy.

Don’t forget to cover your neck


To make your makeup look more uniform and cohesive, apply some amount of bronzer to your neck as well. While you apply bronzer to your face, make sure to apply a little bit of it to the front of your neck as well. Use a light hand movement to do the job as the bronzer shouldn’t look very prominent. For more effective results, after you are done applying the bronzer to your face, take the same brush with no extra product taken to bronze your neck and you will be good to go.

There are various types of make-up blender that we find in the market these days. Yet not all are meant to be used for a single purpose. Like you have your make up brushes blenders have their own importance and usage. So today we have brought some of the unusual shapes of the beauty blender and we will discuss with you what their usage is. You can find these online as well as on many make-up stores. They came in single packing in the makeup store but if you visit online you might find two or more of them in a single packaging. So let’s begin with our blender search.

Foundation Sponge


This is a regular sponge that has a teardrop structure. It has a tip and the round end. This blender is usable for spreading the foundation evenly to every area of the face. The quality of this product varies from brand to brand. The sponge has three types one is dense, medium, and light. The difference between them is the density of the sponge. How much material can it hold on it? The pores on it play a crucial; role in the spreading of the product. Se we don’t want to take much foundation on the sponge, it is always suggested that you go for medium pore. Thus find the perfect teardrop blender to blend in your foundation. It works best with liquid foundation.

Pear Sponge


It has a somewhat similar function as the teardrop sponge. This can be used to spread liquid foundations as well as BB and CC creams. They give an even texture on the face. If you apply cream mixing with the foundation this will give you an even blend all-around face and neck. Moreover, it gives a better hold as it has a little inverted in the center, it is pointed from one side and round from the other end. The pointed one helps in applying the foundation to the small region such as on the side of the nose and ears. This also gives a nice blend on the jawline.

Olive/Eyes sponge

 

These two sponges are used for the same purpose, you can apply concealer with the help of these and give a nice blend. Let’s talk about each one by one. The eye sponge has two pointed ends and is thick from the center. So if you two sides to work with one for each eye. You can hold it from the center it will do the blending in the triangular motion. Now the spade is more popular as it has pointed ends by it is little asymmetrical. One end is bigger than the other. So if while applying eye shadow you have got some glitters on the lower eyelid you can use the small section to correct the error and use the bigger one to apply concealer in the first place.

Sculptor Sponge


Sculptor sponges are the one which has triangular cutting on one end to the sponge. The purpose of these sponges is to apply a heavy foundation most amazingly.

Some even use this to highlight or bronze their cheekbone and blend into the headline. There are many sculptor sponges but not all are function the triangle one can work well.

Blotting Sponge


Sometimes we try to do more natural makeup. Therefore you need this sponge. So far there are rare chemical-free liquid foundations which are developed without oil in them, so an oily skin person cannot use these foundations you need the blotting sponge to apply an even tone of this foundation on your skin. They will work without spreading much oil on your face. You can use blotting sheets as well but the sponge gives a better result.

There was a time before this lockdown when we used to put on the best makeup and wear the most sophisticated shirt to look our professional best before attending a meeting. And it seems like it is going to take a lot more time for things to go back to normal. In the meantime, online platforms have been proving to be a lifesaver by providing us a means where we can hold such meetings virtually sitting in our living room. While we understand that this whole lockdown thing may have gotten the best out of our laziness but this simply doesn’t mean that you will compromise the way you look. While there’s no need to go extra and do a full face makeup, but the least you can do to make yourself look more presentable and professional is by following a few makeup tips that will ensure to make you look your best with zero to minimal efforts involved.

Don’t go overboard, stick with basics


While we understand that you have plenty of time before the meeting begins but that doesn’t mean you will put on a glittery eyeshadow or color your cheeks with extra blush. As tempted as you may feel to do full face makeup, it would be great if you completely skip that part, save yourself from that hassle and just stick with the basics. Something as little as a coat of mascara, filled-in brows, neutral-colored lips, and a little bit of highlighter will do the job perfectly and make you look like a fresh daisy in no time.

Keep the base light


Like we said, there is no use of going overboard with your makeup; it will be a complete waste of time as at the end of the day, you will have to stay at your place eventually with nowhere else to go. Save yourself from that trouble and keep your base light. You can either look for a tinted moisturizer or a CC cream as it nicely conceals the problematic areas and also provides even-tone skin. To make your face look more flawless and brightening, you can apply a brightening concealer on your under-eye area as well as blemishes.

Opt for lighter shades


Back in the normal days, you may use to wear bright and bold shades for lipsticks, eyeshadows as well as kohl or eyeliner but now that things are not the same actually and you will be on a video call where such things can look too loud, we would suggest applying lighter shades instead of brighter ones. Instead of applying your typical black eyeliner, apply a brown or grey shade as it will provide a much softer look. Similarly, switch your lipstick and eyeshadow with lighter shades.

Use tinted lip balms


Lipstick is the most important part of a complete makeup look, just one swap on the lips and it can completely transform the way you look. As much as you would like to wear your favorite matte lipstick, it can appear too dry on camera. Similarly, lip gloss can make your lips look shiny and also, applying dark lipsticks is not a good idea, no matter how tempted you are. Instead of opting for your lipstick, apply a tinted lip balm that won’t only add color to your lips but will also keep them soft and hydrated.

Face the natural light


When you click pictures or shoot videos, you always try to position yourself in a place where the natural light will hit your face in the best way possible. Great natural lighting is the key to making yourself look good on camera. Look for a spot in your house, where natural light enters in abundance. Place your laptop in front of it during the meeting and let the natural light hit your face which will instantly make you look a lot brighter and glowy.

Our problems with skin just seem to be never-ending. Sometimes it’s the acne that’s causing the issue and sometimes it’s the stubborn dark spots and pigmentation that is raising concern, either way, having the skin of your dreams which is clear of acne, dark spots, pigmentation marks just seems like an impossible dream now. If the skincare regimen or the products doesn’t seem to be working for you then you need not fret, as long as you have makeup to back you up, there are no skin woes that can come in your way from achieving the desired look.
Pigmentation marks and dark spots are one of the most common skin woes that many women deal with and there’s nothing to be ashamed of but concealing them is also not a bad idea. No matter how stubborn those dark spots and pigmentation marks are, with the help of makeup, you can easily cover each one of them effectively.
We have formed a guide for you that will help you in concealing your dark spots and pigmentation marks the right way.

Know your undertone


First things first, knowing your undertone is one of the most important aspects of this whole process. You cannot continue with it unless you know what your undertone is. You should always purchase makeup products according to your undertone and the best way to identify it is by checking the color of your veins. If the veins appear blue to you then you have a cool undertone and if they seem green to you then you have warm undertone and in some cases you can also see the mix of two colors which indicates neutral undertone. Picking foundation and concealer that matches your natural undertone always work the best.

Use primer with blurring effect


Primer is one of the most important products to apply whenever you are trying to do makeup. You certainly cannot skip this step as it not only helps you in providing a soft and smooth canvas to work on but it also helps in creating a blurring effect which can help you in concealing your dark spots and pigmentation marks effectively. Primer comes in a huge variety and you will have to make sure that you buy the one that produces a blurring effect. It will help you in blurring out the imperfections whilst also providing a matte finish to the face.

Use an orange color corrector


Color corrector is designed for a reason and you should put it to use when needed. This product comes in different shades that are meant for different skin woes, but for concealing dark spots and pigmentation, you will require an orange color corrector. It can help you to hide all the dark spots, pigmentation, and even your dark circles. Just make sure that you are buying it according to your skin tone, such as peachy tone will work best for fair skin whereas, a redder-orange tone will work best for dusky skin.

Layer your foundation before setting it up with powder


Layering is no longer limited to your mascara only; your foundation can also be used in a similar way especially when you are trying to conceal the problematic areas on your face properly. Layering your foundations allows you to cover all the dark spots and pigmentation make quite seamlessly. And before you set it up with powder; make sure that the foundation has settled onto your skin nicely.

Apply loose powder before putting on the concealer

Firstly, you should know that concealer always goes after foundation and if you have been doing this the other way around then it’s time that you change your makeup technique and follow the right method. Coming to the point now, before you put on the concealer on the problematic areas, make sure to dab some amount of loose powder on the spots and then apply the concealer to achieve a more seamless finish.
