#30DaysMakeupChallenge: Look 2: Glitter lips

Hello ladies!

Continuing the #30DaysMakeupChallenge, today’s look is just an extension of yesterday’s look, albiet with the hottest makeup trend at the moment- glitter lips!

#30DaysMakeupChallenge Look-2: Glitter Lips

Glitter lips are the hottest makeup trend for this season. A few days back, British MUA Pat McGrath launched her range of glitter lip kits *drool* and the beauty world went crazy! Then I saw my favorite YouTuber Tati from GlamLifeGuru do a video with these products, and I officially lost it! Just had to give this trend a try!

With the festive season also coming up, if you want to up your glam quotient without much of an effort (hello, no blending!), you should totally give this trend a try. Most of us makeup crazies have some pigment or glitter lying around in our stash anyway. Go ahead, pick them up and create a DIY glitter lip look in an instant.

Coastal Scents Step One eye primer: Review

Hey everyone!

Being oily skinned is one thing. Having super oily eyelids is another. With age/ time, I have noticed that my skin generally does get a little less oily or lean towards combination skin type during extreme winters, but the eyelids still remain super duper oily. Like, really oily. They are the next oiliest part on my face after my nose, followed by the rest of the T-zone. So all I can manage to wear is a good, heavy duty gel or liquid eyeliner on an everyday basis. Everything else looks cray cray in no time. Add to it the fact that I have hooded eyelids, so my crease is, well, very low, almost next to upper lash line…

Bottomline- an eye primer is my best friend and a necessity. Recently I bought the Coastal Scents Step-one eye primer during my Coastal Scents Black Friday haulΒ and have been using this primer ever since. Read on to know my thoughts on this one!

Price: $14.95 (approx. Rs. 940) for 10mL. Available on coastalscents.com

The CS website has good deals and discounts from time to time. I bought mine during the black friday 50% off sale. I’d suggest you buy during sale too. This way, you can save some money on the products, since shipping charges are ‘quite good’ on their website.
