Product Review – Indigo Herbs Papaya Seed Oil

*Collaborative post.

Hello September! The weather has done a complete 360 in the last few days. It is now a bit chilly with the endless rain and I can smell Autumn. I love taking extra care of my skin in the autumn months to get it ready for the harsh cold weather we experience in winter. Winter can leave my skin really dry so I like to ensure I get my skin ready for that. I recently started using this Indigo Herbs Papaya Seed Oil (Cold Pressed) and I really like it. The Latin name for the oil is Carica papaya, and the oil is extracted using the cold pressing method. It is my first time of using a cold pressed oil and I am loving it.

Here are my thoughts on this Indigo Herbs Papaya Seed Oil

 

PROS
  1. I love the texture of the oil. It is very light and non-greasy.
  2. The packaging is compact which makes it easy to pop in a handbag or luggage to take on holiday. I also like the fact that the oil comes with an expiry date as most skincare products don’t.
  3. It brightens skin’s complexion and leaves the skin very moisturised.
  4. This oil can be used in many ways. I use it as a massage oil. I also use it in the bath sometimes. It can also be used in homemade, natural skin and hair preparations.
  5. The oil is fragrance free and easily absorbed into the skin.
  6. I like the price tag of £13.99 for a 100ml bottle. That is super affordable.
  7. It is Vegan.
  8. This oil is handcrafted in Somerset UK, so you can be rest assured it is great quality.

 

CONS

None.

Beauty Tricks for the Lipstick

*Affiliate links.

The Lipstick is one of the most popular makeup products, and it is easy to see why it is so popular. It is one piece of makeup that can be easily applied quickly when you don’t have the time for anything else. The lipstick also has the power to instantly brighten up your face, and if you apply the right lipstick properly, it can create of illusion of your face looking more made up than it is.

 

The Origin of Lipsticks

Lipsticks first appeared over 5,000 years ago. Rumour has it that Cleopatra’s red lipsticks were made from finely crushed carmine beetle and ants’ eggs mixture. During the second world war, the ends of used lipsticks were collected and melted together to form new lipsticks for the women. Each woman had an average of 2 new lipsticks for the 5 year duration of the war.

Lipsticks have the power to improve or ruin your overall look, so they are worth paying extra attention to. Here are some beauty tricks for the lipstick –

 

Pick the right lipstick shades

You need to ensure you go for the right shades of lipsticks. No point picking a nude lipstick if you are like me and nude doesn’t look good on you. You will end up looking washed out which is never a good look. Go for lipstick shades that complement your natural skin tone.

It can be tricky to get the right shades but my advice is to experiment with as many as possible until the find the brands, shades and textures that work for you.

I am currently loving these stunning lipsticks –

 

 

Get rid of dry skin on the lips

You can easily do this by scrubbing the lips gently with a toothbrush.

 

Apply a lip primer

Applying a primer before your lipsticks is the way to go. A good primer helps the lipstick stay on and stay put. I always apply my primer and leave it on for a few minutes before applying my lipstick. That way my primer sinks in properly before the lipstick goes on.

Here are some amazing lip primers –

 

 

Use a lip pencil

Lip pencils emphasise the lips so they are very much needed in the makeup bag. I have quite a few in various shades, and they really come in handy. My lips always look great when they are lined properly.

The tip is to always make sure your lip pencil and lipstick match. They have to be the same shade to look good. Once you line your lips and apply the lipstick, you shouldn’t be able to see lip liner. It just creates a sharp edge. The only time you shouldn’t use a lip pencil is when you are going for really glossy lips. You can get away with blurry edges when you lips are all glossed up.

Get a lip brush

Applying your lipstick with a lip brush is the best way to create a flawless look. You can’t compare the finish you get when you use a lip brush to when you don’t.

The best way to apply with a lip brush is to fill in the whole lip area, right up to the lip line, and then work into the corners. Also, open your mouth slightly when you apply your lipstick. This way to get to fill out every part of your lips.

Here is a great lip brush –

 

 

Blot your lips

Remember to blot your lips with tissue to fix our colour, add another layer of colour or gloss to complete the look. This is one of the most important beauty tricks for the lipstick, but many seem to forget it.

How to use a Blusher

You may notice your face looks a bit bland after applying primer, concealer, foundation and powder. This is because all the imperfections have been evened out to create a uniformed face, which has taken away the hint of healthy colour in your cheeks. This is where the blusher comes in. A good blusher goes a long way in brightening up the face and adding the right amount of colour to your cheeks. I like to apply them sparingly, so it is not so obvious. That look works so great for my face.

Blushers are so handy to have in the makeup bag. They are a good multitasking makeup product, which is amazing for when you need to go away with a little bag of makeup. Blushers can be applied on the eyes, cheeks as well as the lips, with some lip gloss for a light lip look.

Blushers usually come in powder or cream textures. Many now come in gel textures too! I find powder blushers a lot easier to use, which is why I have loads of them on my makeup table. I like to start slow and light and build up if I need more. Like most makeup products, less is more with blushers. I apply my blusher starting from the centre of my cheeks, then over to the edges.

Here are some blusher makeup tips for the shape of your face –

 

Square Face

For the square face, apply from jawline to cheeks for a softer look.

 

Oval Face

When it comes to the oval faces, apply gently on the cheekbones.

 

Round Face

Apply the blusher on the jawline, cheeks and area just above the brow-bone to create an illusion of a slimmer face.

 

Oblong Face

For the oblong face, broaden the pointed chin by applying blusher at the tip and cheeks to sides.

 

Blushers are very makeup products worth having. If you are new to blushers, you can start off experimenting with a safe colour like a rose pink and see how you get on.
