Hey everyone, looks like am blogging after years. 🙂 I have been busy for the past few days that’s why couldn’t post. Anyways here is a new post and review on an HD eyeshadow primer from L.A. Girl.

 

The L.A. Girl HD PRO Primer Eyeshadow Stick is a multi-tasking primer that has a light weight, non-sticky formula that sets for a long-lasting eye makeup application. The smooth texture glides over eyelids to prep your eyes for a flawless, even application. HD PRO Primer Eyeshadow Stick is a universal primer that serves as a base, works on all skin types and allows you to wear your favorite eyeshadow all day long while enhancing the pigments in most eyeshadows.

All the 3 colors are really beautiful and do work out but I personally love the black one and it is indeed a good base for smoky eye makeup.

This primer is really worth it and is better than I expected! It also makes my eyeshadow stay longer and brings out the color nicely.You don’t need a lot of product also which is cool. Considering the price and staying power I definitely recommend this.

 

All 3 colors can be bought for USD10

Bronzer V/S Contour Powder

Standard

Hello Lovelies, today is my birthday Yaaaayyyy! 😀 So Happy Birthday to me! 😉 Anyways thought I should definitely make a post on the issue of using a bronzer to contour which is a big no no for me! It is quite unfortunate to see most of the so-called beauty Gurus on Youtube, Instagram and so on claims that you can use a bronzer to contour your face. Seriously?!

First of all we need to understand the difference and purpose between the two.

A bronzer is used to give a Tan glow to your skin like how you would be tanned if you were in the sun. It can make your face look warm if you have a pale or porcelain complexion. However, some people with medium skin tone also love using bronzers just to look a little bit more warm and tanned. If you take a bronzer and look closely you may notice it has an orange tint in it as a secondary color.

As for a Contour powder it is mainly used in giving shape to an area of the face, neck and to enhance the facial structure through makeup. What the contour powder does is it creates artificial shades on your face and create the illusion that some zones are shaped differently – thinner face or nose for example or you have higher cheekbones. The secondary color in a contour powder if I may say is basically like a brown-grayish color or Taupe color.

 

Here is a picture to show you the difference between using a Bronzer (Left) and a Contour powder (Right). You can see how drastically the contour powder can change your face structure and make you look so different.

I do hope this helps to get that flawless and well contoured face ladies! 🙂
