Quality Makeup & Makeup Accessories for Women
The makeup industry is made up of manufacturers who are constantly creating new products in a bid to grab the attention of consumers, and it can be difficult to know which products to buy and if the price tag necessarily means a better product. Here is what to look out for to ensure you're getting high-quality products.
The ingredients used in makeup and skincare can come from several different countries and may be extracted from natural products or created in scientific laboratories, but as a general rule, High Street brands tend to use more synthetic ingredients.
Natural makeup and skincare products such as DR. HC Skin Plumping Serum are 100% organic, natural and vegan and plumps the skin in a safe and natural way. Ingredients include vitamin C, organic glycine, soy oil, almond oil, argan kernel oil and vitamin E, all of which help moisturize the skin and protect it from harsh weather and dry atmospheres. It is the perfect product to apply before makeup.
Even if several products claim to use the same ingredients, the quantity of the ingredient used can often be different and the amounts can determine how effective a particular product is. Before choosing a product because of what it contains, check the ingredients.
Makeup, like clothing, goes in and out of fashion, and this is true for the colors of makeup people are buying and also how they are applying it.
Natural-looking makeup that is cruelty-free and vegan is hugely popular right now, and the Blue Moon Loose Eyeshadow from Raw Beauty is all this and more. It is ideal for dry skin, sensitive skin and problem skin and gives eyes a beautiful, soft tone, emphasizing their natural color.
There are certain basic everyday makeup products that are definitely worth investing in. These include foundation that is easy to apply, feels nice on your skin and looks great. Look for a high-quality set of makeup and application brushes, along with lipstick that stays on, doesn’t dehydrate your lips and blends well with your natural skin tone.
When it comes to foundation, choosing a natural and organic liquid foundation is recommended as this makes the perfect base layer for makeup. The Zero Waste Liquid Foundation Vegan BB Cream is a hydrating product that can balance and correct the complexion and is ideal for wearing during the day. It feels lovely on the skin and both enhances and protects, in addition to providing a perfect finish that combats shine.
Lipstick is a very personal choice. Some people like to go bright and bold, and others prefer a more natural color, such as Luscious Coral by Danyel. This lipstick is free from parabens and sulfates and gives long-lasting color throughout the day. If you are looking for something a bit more vivid, or for evening wear, colors such as Autumn Rust, also by Danyel, are perfect for the colder months and blend well with a range of skin tones and hair colors.
A high-quality set of makeup brushes can be a great investment. Think of them as something you will be using every day for many years to come. This Professional Brush Set in Pink from Keshav Natural Organics offers a range of brushes that are ideal for contouring and highlighting. They are made from wood, with handles that have a comfortable grip. The brushes are soft on the skin and also don’t shed the way that cheaper alternatives tend to do.
Looking after your skin is the key to keeping it looking good for longer. Treating it to a face mask or occasional deep treatment can not only make it look good but feel good, too. The New Beginning Exfoliating Mask is a clay mask that is packed full of detoxifying and healing ingredients including chamomile, aloe vera, calendula and Australian pink clay. By applying the mask, you will get rid of any dead skin cells, reveal cleaner and brighter skin, and draw out any imperfections. It doesn’t leave the skin feeling tight or raw like some masks can do, and it is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
Alternatively, splash out on Platinum Facial Detox Mud Mask, which uses the finest ingredients and has been especially formulated to give a top spa-like experience by drawing out oils and toxins.
Always invest in good-quality makeup and accessories that are kind to your skin and the environment.
