[Review] Krylon TV Paint Stick - Orange

Makeup not only enhances your features, but also hides your flaws too!
Hiding my dark circles and finding the RIGHT concealer for the under eye circles has always been a BIG task for me. I have tried quite a few concealers, from different brands; none of them matched or could hide my dark circles properly. Until I came across orange corrector by Krylon.

What are Correctors/Neutralizers and How it works? 
Color Correctors also known as neutralizers are used to correct hard-to-cover skin discolorations. They are based on the idea of the color wheel. If you want to neutralize a color, you will place the opposite color over it. If you look at the color wheel, you will understand the theory of opposite colors and their relation with each other. Orange is opposite to Blue, Green is opposite to Red and Lavender is opposite to Yellow. 

Orange hides dark spots, blue under eye circles and discoloration. Green minimizes the redness on a skin with pink undertones. Lavender minimizes the yellow undertones. Everyone's skin has it's own personal mixture of pigments and undertones.

1. Without any concealer. 2. With orange corrector. 3.With foundation over the corrector
My experience:
I've heard about Krylon TV paint sticks, but never used them. I always thought how can the makeup artists hide such dark circles, until I myself did makeup artistry course. When I started to use it, that's why I saw the wonders. 

The corrector stick is just like the tv paint stick. The texture is smooth, but a little dry; not creamy. It is applied the way concealer is applied. It is best to apply it with a flat brush and then blend with your ring finger; the warmth of the tips will help the concealer to melt into the skin and blend in nicely. Don't rub the finger, instead press the ring finger against the skin softly.

What I do is, I apply my favorite moisturiser, apply the corrector with the brush on the areas I need it, then I press my ring finger and blend it nicely. Blending is the key. If you are planning to apply foundation, the next step would be foundation. Apply your favorite foundation with fingers, brush or sponge. Once you are done, you need to apply concealer accordingly. In this way, you will not apply extra product and make your face look cakey.

In the picture of my eyes above, you can see the difference. You can see how dark my circles are, especially in the inner corner. The difference is visible between first and third picture. In the third picture, I applied  Luscious Foundation Stick. You can use your favorite foundation over it, be it liquid or stick and then concealer. 

Sometimes, when I don't want to use foundation, I just use the corrector, concealer and a powder foundation or BB cream. It gives a natural flawless finish. As long as dark circles are hidden you will look fresh and flawless; dark circles make you look tired.

Over all, I am really happy to FINALLY find a product that has made my life SO easy. I got mine from Naheed Supermarket for PKR 875.

Review - Christine's Face Contouring.

Hello pretty girls!

Today, finally I am going to review about Christine Face Contouring powder. You girls have been requesting it for so long, but I wanted to try it and go out for hours, so that I can actually talk about it.
Let's get started!
This is the packaging of the contouring powder. It is available at Naheed Supermarket for Rs.250/
It will be easily available at any cosmetic's store, because it it not a high-end brand. 
This is how it looks like, it comes in different shades. At the back of the box, the sticker is of no.2, and at the back of the casing as you can see, it's no.1 :) Check the shade you want. I picked another one which had too dark brown shades. This one was the lightest. You can use this as a bronzer as well. I hardly use bronze because I look dark. But, for some reason, I am obsessed with bronzers these days and I want to try them from different brands. This is the first one I have and I kind of like it, as it is not too dark for me.

L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Caramel Mania - Toffee Delice [Review]

I'm a person who loves experimenting things with my makeup and hair. When it comes to changing the color, I can try the bold colors to subtle ones. Lately, I've been obsessed with Ombre and full brown hair color. I prefer hair dying my hair at home and that's why I love and prefer shampoo dyes. If you are new, and you are changing hair color at home, it's the easiest way. All you have to do is mix all the contents in a bottle, shake well and start applying. Yes, easy as it sounds.
