Giveaway – Win 3 L’Oreal Lipsticks

Show me a woman who does not wear some lipstick, and I would show you a woman who has not found the confidence to put the right shade. Lipsticks give us an air of confidence. You can look all dressed up with only lipstick makeup on. That is how powerful a makeup it is.

I fell in love with lipsticks as a little girl. It was my favourite sort of makeup back then and it is still high on my makeup list today. There is something amazing about wearing the right shade of lipstick. It has the power to make you appear all dressed up and put together. Which is why I am hosting this giveaway. I am giving away 3 L’Oreal Lipsticks to 1 lucky winner.

The lipsticks are from the L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Gold Addiction Metallic Lipstick Range. I think the shades are gorgeous. The lipstick colours are rich, and each shade is enriched with a combination of Omega-3 oils and vitamin E which helps to protect your lips from drying.

For me, the best part of these lipsticks, is the fact that they are wrapped in 24-carat gold pigments for a statement metallic look. I think that is the most beautiful thing you could add to a lipstick. 

Here are the lipstick shades the lucky winner will be getting.

6 Makeup Tricks That Make You Look Older and How to Avoid Them

The wonders makeup can do to your appearance! I’m still amazed when I watch the transformation makeup artists put their clients through with a touch of makeup.

There are so many tutorials out there that make re-creating the youthful look very simple. However, they do come with their mishaps. Often times such blunders can make you look a lot older than your age. Here are some makeup tricks that make you look older and how to avoid them.

 

Applying primer

Ever wondered what makes people’s makeup look dull after a long day? It could be because they are not using a primer.

Using a primer will help make your makeup last throughout the day. A good primer keeps your makeup as fresh as it looked when you started off your day. Without a primer, the makeup will wear away thereby revealing the imperfections such as uneven skin tone or fine lines.

 

Contouring

Contouring is a popular makeup trend as when done properly, it can make you look younger. However, when you overdo the contouring your appearance will transition from youthful to old as such contouring will only highlight your ageing lines. At the end of the day, too much definition isn’t good.

The best way to solve this is to always blend the contour to make it more natural. When you blend the contour in properly you will have that youthful appearance.

Highlighting

A beautiful glow is synonymous with looking young. Highlighting in the right places can make you look amazing. However, women often make the mistake in highlighting in less flattering areas on the face thereby adding more years to their appearance.

When highlighting, stay clear of the brow bone as that pulls down your eyes. Also avoid the crease at your eyes and the smile lines as that brings in a lot of focus to the wrinkles and fine lines. Instead focus the highlights in more taut areas of your face like your cheek bones and the bridge of your nose.

 

Applying mascara

They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. Mascara helps to show off the beauty hidden in your eyes as well as make your eyes appear larger and more alluring. It also helps to define the eyelashes, that’s why it’s good to put mascara on both the top and bottom eyelashes.

However, some women overdo the mascara on the bottom eyelashes. This immediately gives an illusion of having dark circles around your eyes thereby making them look older. When applying mascara brush it lightly on the bottom lashes.

Dark lipstick

Who wouldn’t want to wear the bold red lipstick? But the truth is that many women get it wrong and in the process apply too much lipstick thereby making it look so thick and unnatural .

To get this look right, line your lips with a lip pencil. Next, fill in the outline with a lipstick shade slightly darker than the lip pencil and then finish off with a tinted gloss. This sort of makeup would make you appear a lot younger.

 

Using eyeliner on the bottom lid

This is a trend that I have been seeing a lot on social media. Using eyeliner can make your eyes lively and brighter, however, your choice of colour can make a huge difference.

A black eyeliner on the bottom eyelid will make your eyes look smaller and it makes the creases around your eyes more visible.

To properly create that youthful look, switch from using black coloured eyeliner to a brown coloured one and finish off by blending in a brown eyeshadow from the inner to the outer part of your eyes. Depending on your skin colour you may decide to go for white or nude coloured eyeliner.
