Knowing that two or three lipcolours is all I want is in fact making me giddy and happy! I’ve decided to go through my makeup case again and de-clutter it (just as before). I chose that for over-all function, MAC’s Chili is much better as an night time lip color than So Chaud for most occasions.
Chili is more of a classic night time look vs So Chaud is more evening ‘glam’ – I’m keeping all three in my makeup case, but have decided to post two photos of a complete day vs evening makeup look. For night time since it has a spicy depth Chili is a very advanced/elegant colour.
- Mix into the favourite foundation to include glow and enhance tonality
- O Generally, benign growths can be removed. They usually do not grow back
- 2 tsp sandalwood essential essential oil
- What is the foundation of energy being imposed and could it be from a non-renewable or alternative source
So Chaud is more of the brighter orange red, while Chili can be an orange-brownish red. My goal this year is to really make my makeup and style useful – make it personal and unique if you ask me. This 12 months is about simplifying my life, decluttering what fails and thereby, making room for what ‘will’ work – both of these lipsticks have never steered me incorrect and appearance great with my whole wardrobe. What will I do instead? Start focusing on style, fashion, creating a straightforward and functional wardrobe that is true to my best colour palette! If you have any blog requests for me personally also – I’d love to hear!
And it doesn’t help that our weather is so humid it actually takes a little longer than in drier cooler climates. I apply my base and concealer usually, then move on to brows and eye makeup before I reach for the setting powder. This not only gives your foundation time to set a bit more (it will last better and look less cakey cos less powder will cling to it later), it also means it isn’t be sliding and shifting a lot.
Think of nail polish. Sometimes the top has set but the bottom hasn’t so it will smear and change if you apply pressure to it too soon. Same with many foundations, especially those with a heavier coverage. And whether it’s uber warm and you do not have air-conditioning to prevent your skin from sweating, don’t powder yet.
Wait until you are in the car/bus/train where it is cooler and you’ve halted sweating. Lightly press dried out tissue on that person to blot any excessive dampness before you powder. Nothing good comes out of powdering clammy sweaty skin ever. Lastly, less powder is more. ESPECIALLY here where we go from hot to chilly and back again to hot once we travel to and from air-conditioned conditions. We prefer to think there is a magic natural powder or foundation that will stay flawless directly after we perspiration and get oily but – I haven’t found that magic product yet.
Everything creases fades and smears to different extents and the lighter your foundation is (and the less natural powder you use), the less apparent it is when the fading smearing and creasing happens. Heavily-powdered base is “inflexible” as soon as it creases and cracks or shifts and looks patchy, it is rather hard to repair and erase.
This is particularly true for drier skin areas and around appearance lines. Easier to get a longwear base and a light powder than a regular base and heavy matte stage-makeup natural powder to make it last. Oh it’ll last longer. Nonetheless it won’t look good close-up, and who would like long-lasting ugly coverage?
Lastly, use an extremely soft brush and incredibly VERY lightly pat your clean over your skin to press a minimal amount of powder in. The point down is to lock it, not mix it up. In case your foundation fits your skin layer properly and doesn’t get cakey you can buff all you want.
