Spring is finally here so its time to put away the dark lips and the 'lived-in' eyeliner looks and embrace brighter makeup and barely-there base. I spent my Saturday afternoon at the MAC counter in Selfridges, a happy place where I can always find makeup for my skin tone, testing out some new and staple products that I deem 'must haves' for my makeup bag this season. Here they are, and why:
1.Viva Glam Miley Cyrus Lipstick:
Ever since their very first Viva Glam campaign in 1994 featuring drag queen RuPaul as the brand ambassador, I have loved these limited edition lipstick collaborations and the Miley Cyrus campaign is no exception. Her new shade is a super-sexy hot pink hue. Nothing signals spring more than a bright fun lipstick and this looks great on my skin tone.
Best Of The Best, Lipstick, MAC Best MAC Lipsticks For Fair & Olive Skintones Top & Best MAC Lipsticks For Fair & Dark Skintones in India. One of my favorite quotes and 1 that I have quoted numerous times is ‘On a bad day there is always lipstick’ No matter how depressed or down in the dumps I feel, nothing cheers me up as easily as a bright bold lipstick.
Best Lipsticks For Dark Skin
2. Prep + Prime BB Beauty Balm:
Love the barely-there makeup look? If you seek to have a sheer coverage yet want a tint of colour on your face, this BB cream is the product for you. Containing SPF35, it's perfect for use on its own. This leaves a dewy finish, even when worn under foundation.
3. Mineralize Skinfinish in Gold Deposit:
This powder highlighter for face and body will leave you shimmering from head to toe. When used properly it gives the face a nice glow where the lights hit, but be careful to go heavy-handed and look like you're covered in dusty sparkly glitter. I recommend it to anyone looking for a nice glow.
4. Studio Finish Concealer Duo:
Lightweight, creamy, discreetly opaque concealer which provides smooth, long-wearing invisible coverage for all skin imperfections. Say goodbye to the winter dark circles with coverage using this concealer duo – there are shades for every dark complexion.
5. Cremeblend Blusher:
This colour glides on smoothly, adding brightness to the face, and is long lasting. I enjoy blending in this product with my fingers.
6. Prep + Prime Fix +:
This finishing mist rejuvenates the skin and keeps your makeup looking dewy. Spritz on once you have finished your face if your makeup looks too powdery.
7. Eye Brows in Spiked:
Now I am bald, the eyebrow pencil shade Spiked is my favourite tool as it helps clearly define my face by adding shape and colour to my brows as well as arching. This pencil is perfect for filling in both bushy and non-existent eyebrows.
8. Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder:
This is perfect for setting my foundation! It reduces shine while optically minimising the look of lines and imperfections. Soft, light and velvety, it goes on smoothly and the overall finish doesn't cake or feel heavy. This silky finishing powder is suitable for all skin tones.
