Be it at the red carpet or a photo shoot, you will never see actress Angelina Jolie without winged eyeliner and nude lipstick. Why? Because her signature look is simple yet soooo sexy.
I did a similar look today and I swear I turned a few more heads than usual *lol* Want to nail the look for yourself too? Then check out the tips below!
Here’s for Wing =)
To choose a lip color that is right for you, you have to consider the following:
1. The Look You Are Going After
Dark colors will make you look more mature while young colors will make you look younger. If you are doing a dark smoky eye, keep your lips nude. Similarly, if you are doing a nude eye, go with a bold lip color.
2. Natural Skin Tone
Pale skins look good in reds with blue undertones, light pinks, honey, mocha and pinkish beiges. Medium skins are flattered by rich reds with brown or yellow undertones, pinks with brown undertones, medium browns from mocha to caramel. Redheads should go for brownish undertones like raisiny reds, and deep peach shades. Deeper skin tones like brownish reds and plums, sheerest pinks, pink-glossed beige and virtually any shade of brown. Olive skins look good in brownish reds and berries, deepest pinks, chocolate, yellow-browns and plummy browns.
MAC Pigments are basically highly concentrated loose color powders that come in different finishes: Matte, Metallic and Frost. They are a dream to blend, do not streak or cake and last forever. And since they go on super pigmented, you only need a teeny bit each time. You can also mix them together to get the color you want.
Another awesome thing about pigments is that they are multi-purpose. Below are some of the ways you can use them:
A good set of brushes can last you at least a couple of years. In order to keep them in good shape, treat them with extreme care and keep them clean. You do not have to wash your makeup brushes every time you use them but if you wear makeup every day, you should definitely wash them once a week. Here is how to do it:
1. Gently wash them with a baby shampoo or a brush cleaner.
2. Once you are done, lay them flat on a piece of paper towel. Do not stand them up because the water will drip into the part connecting the handle with the metal part and this will mess up the glue inside.
3. Let them air dry. Do not attempt to make them dry faster by using a blow dryer. This will only damage your brushes.
4. Once they are completely dry, gently reshape them.

Keeping unruly brows in check require constant grooming so today, I am going to cover the five different ways to do it.
The easiest and most common way, tweezing involves using a pair of tweezers to pluck the whole hair, including the follicle. Always use a pair of tweezers that is sharp enough (I LOVE Tweezerman!), pull the skin taut and then pull in the direction the hair is growing.
