Colorful Topcoat Mascaras
Is your eye make-up the most visible part of your whole face? Then we recommend you to go ahead and have fun with the different colored topcoat mascaras which can be applied both ways – as a normal mascara on the eyelashes or on the already applied mascara for a better definition and deeper look.
Pick your the foremost favorite color and let´s see what is going to your surroundings say regarding this newest spring and summer 2019 make-up trend!
You never know! Maybe your friends or family members will be inspired as well!

Popped-up blush and bold lips

If you prefer to define your lips and cheeks more than the rest of the face, this look will be definitely the right one for you. Pick up your the most favorite color of the blush and spread it all over your cheeks. You can go a bit beyond too so the blush will literally look like „popped-up“ out of somewhere. Combine this look with the bold lips in a familiar shade as the blusher is and that is it! All done! You can leave your eyes unpainted or use a light layer just for defining them.

Lime your life a bit!

Lime-colored make-up or eyeshadows became an enormous issue this year!
Vibrant neon yellow-green could have been seen not only on the models on the fashion runways but also on the everyday people on the streets. If you would like to brighten your life a bit and make yourself to feel a bit summery too, let´s try to look for the lime-shaded make-up products in the near drugstores. But be aware of the fact, that this color is better suitable for the warm undertones and darker shades of the skin. The eyeliner in this color can turn a person with pale skin into someone who looks very tired and exhausted. But, on the other hand, make-up should be mostly about experimenting and having fun, right? If you feel like going for it, we are counting on you!

Nothing but Ruby Lips

Another spring and summer 2019 make-up trend may be a bit marginal still.
In this case, your face should be defined with only the bold, especially ruby lips.
But the color of the lipstick is up to you, of course. It is just that the rest of the face should be kept as natural as possible. Light mascara layer, maybe a light blushed and a bit of defined eyebrows is enough.

Extended Unordinary Eyeliner
Do you belong to the category of people who just can´t imagine not wearing the eyeliner every day? Are you one of those who just live for the eyeliner? Well, some of us are, too. And we totally understand! Eyeliner is something like a second skin or face for us. Without it being painted, we may feel naked or somehow similar. If you feel the same, we have good news for yours. Experimenting with this kind of make-up and extending it is one of this year´s trends! Now you can try everything you have been dreaming about! No boundaries ahead! Go for it, girl!

Virgin brows
If you are one of those lucky people who wear born with just on fleek eyebrows, we would like to congratulate you. Virgin eyebrows trend is back in the game so it means that you do not have to do almost anything to keep it neat. You can be confident with them just looking natural.
If you'd wish to outline them in any method, an eyebrow pencil or brow care will do the thing.
And if you were not born with the amazing eyebrows – as well as some of us – do not be sad. You can still paint it in a natural way so nobody else, except for you and your close friends, will see the difference. It is just about the right skill 🙂

Glitter on the Eyes
We do not know about you but we just L-O-V-E glitters.
In any way, on everything, in every single color, shade, shape, etc.
Glitters are just amazing and can refresh everything – even your make-up! Try to experiment with them more and use them maybe on the top of your lipgloss, eyebrows, eyeshadows or even on the cheeks! They not only refresh your make-up look, but they will also lift up your mood and brighten your day!

  I hope you enjoy the first trick that I want to share with you guys isOne of my all-time favorites and it really makes a huge difference in your appearance some people are really fortunate and don't have this problem. But many people do including myself the trick is to add a shadow to your hairline our hair is especially fine and thin right around the hairline and it's especially noticeable when you put your hair up So a very simple and quick trick is to actually use eyeshadow to fill in those sparse areas So for me, I have darker hair So I usually go for a darker eyeshadow if you have blonde hair then I suggest a light beige eyeshadow you'd be surprised how much this really will work but you just play around with the colors until you find a good match you will seriously be shocked at how much of a difference this makes in your appearance when you're wearing your hair upYou'll look prettier and more youthful in under 30 seconds and bonus tip if you have gray roots, you can use the eyeshadow to mask that as wellThe second trick I have for you guys is to whiten your eyes So when you look at somebody's eyes you usually think about what color it is. Is it blue green brown hazel? But what really makes those colors pop?is the white around your eyes the whiter that area is the prettier your eyes look so the long-term way to whiten your eyes is to eat healthier and to get more sleep but the instant way is to hydrate your eyes with eye drops this nourishes themReduces redness and makes your eyes whiter. I have just the Visine original redness reducerYou don't have to have this brand it can be any form of I dropped this is not sponsored by any means now you obviously have to follow the instructions and you cannot be using these eyedrops every single dayJust do it every once in a while when your eyes feel extra dry or when you want to look extra pretty and really make your eyes pop the next trick is something that I know everyone is very aware of and that is exfoliating your skin now hold on. Hold on. Hold on. This is different know this isn't a new concept but this specific tool is a new concept at least to me again not sponsored just freaking love this thing some people already use a personal microdermabrasion tool a lot of them out. There are really great, but I actually found this one on Amazon and it had amazing five-star reviews, and so it really caught my attention. And so I started reading the reviews and I was really intrigued So I ended up ordering it and I am so impressed by it. You can use it for microdermabrasion you can use it to actually suck out your whiteheads and your blackheads and it really sucksThe suction on this thing is amazing. It really helps reduce the fine lines and the wrinkles you actually see it like lifting up your skin until you try itYou really won't know what I'm talking about but it does come with four different heads and you just change it out based on what you're looking for it's really simple you just recharge it and I love it afterward your skin is immediately so soft and smooth and it just really makes a big instant difference in your skin now I do recommend doing this before you go to bed so that you wake up prettier because it does leave your skin a little bit red. It's nothing too crazyThere's different settings for the device. But when you wake up your skin really does feel refreshed after you exfoliate your skin you'll l want to do this next trick, which I have been doing for the last few years and I love it. I am obsessed with essential oils for so many reasons I really really could go on and on but one of my favorite ways to instantly improve my skin is to actually use this essential oil beauty serum. Again, this is 100% not sponsored. This is by Young Living and on the sides do sell it really never talked about it because I feel like people get really weird about the whole like side business thing selling things but I just so many essential oils. It only made sense for me just incorporate this into my regular skincare routine, and I just can't go without an.

What are your top tips for skincare?

1. don't use soap or face wipes on your skin. The natural ph of skin is 5.5. Most face wipes and soap have a higher ph and face wipes on particular have a lot of preservatives and alcohol to increase their shelf life which can damage and dry out the skin. Cotton pads and stick to neutral or ph balanced cleansers. Cream cleansers are good for moisturizing.
2. Ever made a fruit salad and left it in the fridge for a while and it’s started to turn brown? That’s because oxygen gets to it and it starts to oxidize. But if you put lemon juice (vitamin C) on it stays fresh. Same for your skin. Always start the day with vitamin C it’s an antioxidant and will essentially help prevent your skin from oxidizing and decaying.
3. Sunblock. Always sunblock. Everyday. The higher SPF is better. UVA and UVB rays both bad for your skin. UVB responsible for burns and skin cancer and UVA causes premature aging (wrinkles and sagging) always sunblock even if it’s not sunny.
4. Night cream containing Vitamin A (retinol cream/retinoids acid). You can buy it in low concentrations over the counter; higher concentrations are on prescription only but usually, you would start at a low concentration and work up. This essentially increases skin turnover and helps get rid of dead skin cells; kind of like a mild skin peel. It helps the skin look radiant, as well as keeping fine lines at bay. If you use vitamin A it is even more important to use an SPF to protect the newer delicate skin cells from harsh UV rays. Same reason as to NOT use vitamin A through the day, so only use at night time.
