Guest Post: Max Factor

Thank you Manal Mirza for submitting the second 
guest post on the blog, we love it! -VicinityMakeup


Max factor is one of my favorite products ever. I have been using them since a while now. They are very affordable and work well just like those amazing expensive products. They have the best base-face products ever. I love makeup and I have had a slight bit of experience with it. Therefore, this is what I love and I am sure you’d love them too.

Starting with the Foundation:
The liquid foundation has about six to seven different skin tones for every face. You can find them anywhere in your nearby stores in the mall. The best thing about this foundation is that it really gives a great finish and covers up almost all your blemishes. It is highly recommended for those with dry and normal skin type, as liquid foundations don’t necessarily go well with oily skins.  

The Pan Stick Concealer:
The concealer stick is also a good product to put underneath your eyes or any blemishes or discolorations. It’s best when you don’t have a brush to apply with. You can just dap it right where you want it and use your fingertips to spread it evenly. Sometimes, it’s better to apply this concealer before applying the foundation. The reason is because it might give a bit of greyish discoloration underneath your eyes, or not. I faced this though.

The famous Compact Powder:
This compact powder works great over the foundation in only just a tiny bit of an amount. Sometimes, when you don’t want to apply foundation over your neck or back, this compact is enough to apply over your neck and back just to give an equal face-neck skin tone. This compact powder is also great to put over your face without applying foundation. It is really a handy powder to be put in emergencies when you don’t have a foundation or you just don’t want to use a foundation!

The False Lash Effect Mascaras:
These mascaras are great and give your lashes an extremely false lash effect without the need to put up false lashes. A bunch of these comes in waterproof type but most of the other mascaras that I had were not waterproof but they were as good as Lancome Mascaras. Really!!

So what are you waiting for? Go and purchase them and look more beautiful as you already are. J

Tip Of The Day (TOTD)

"النصيحة الجمالية لليوم..أفضل طريقة لوضع العطر حتى يدوم طويلاً هو وضعه على مناطق النبض في الجسم؛ كالمعصمين، داخل الكوعين، وخلف الأذنين. فهذا سيمنحك التمتع برائحة جذابة وخفيفة تدوم طويلاً.

The beauty tip of the day ..
The best way to put perfume for a long-lasting scent is to apply the fragrance on the pulse zones of the body; like the wrists, inside the elbows, and behind the ears. Which this will make you enjoy the long-lasting, light, and attractive smell."

Minimalist Beauty: Duochrome Eyeshadows (Part 1)

Hello everyone!

This is the second installment in the Minimalist Beauty series. To check out the first post, click here.

Today, I want to share my love of duochrome eyeshadows with you all! 

What are duochrome eyeshadows you ask? Well, in simple words- it's that colour in your eyeshadow collection that has two tones of colour mixed in it. The colours change according to the way light hits them. Sometimes it can have more than two colours mixed in. For the most part, duochrome eyeshadows are highly iridescent, but also come in satin or shimmer finishes. Personally, my favourite ones are the highly iridescent ones. 

Temptalia's definition of duochrome:
"A product with a duochrome finish or color will look like one color when you look at it straight on, and then when you angle it, it can look like an entirely different color (or nearly so)."

Duochrome eyeshadows play a 'minimalist' role in a makeup routine in the sense that if you were to apply it as a lid colour, it gives a lot more depth and dimension to the look rather than applying the usual one-tone eyeshadow. It makes the lid "pop" and makes them stand out effortlessly. 

Duochrome eyeshadows not only work as great lid shades, but when you bring them up to the crease, they play out with the light and the shadow in such a way that it seems one has applied a different, deeper colour in the crease without the effort of using another eyeshadow. A famous example is MAC's Satin Taupe eyeshadow. This is especially helpful for on-the-go and helps keep the steps in a makeup routine to a minimum. 

Ever since I realised the amazing look duochrome eyeshadows give and the way they take the makeup look to another level, I've become duochrome crazy! Lol! This especially struck me while watching divamakeupqueen's videos on YouTube.
