Perfect Coral lips with related products

The perfect coral lips

I am a big lover of coral lipsticks and blushers, i use to read Makeup artist Antonia Rudebeck today am sharing her personal way of doing coral lips. And also sharing some related products use for perfect coral lips.

I really love matte lip colors and coral look beautiful in matte lets begin.

1.    Matte colors can leave lips looking dry. Start with a lip conditioner for hydration, or lightly exfoliate your lips with toothbrush to remove dead skin.

2.    Use a liner (in coral) to outline the lips. Use short strokes, as they are easier than one continuous line. This also helps to create the desired lip shape.

3.    Fill in the liner with your lipstick, its best to stay within your natural lip line. Finish by blotting your lips on a tissue. This removes excess color and evens out texture

Sigma Brushes

What is in my Sigma Box? Let me show you.

 Finally, I received my sigma parcel. I made an order and waited a month . I  thought my parcel missed in transit, so I placed another order and some days back my both  parcels arrived together.

 I really enjoying   Sigma brushes, I own real techniques and Bobbi brown but sigma is very good I have seen bloggers and you tubers raving for it.

 • The powder blush brush F10 is perfect for applying blush on your apple of cheeks and handling is pretty awesome; some  people consider it a dupe of mac 129, but I have no idea because I don’t own any mac brushes, it does not shed at all the bristles are soft and natural, which make your application more unique and settle blending is perfect over all it’s a very good brush for everyday use, I keep 1 in my stash and 1 in my purse because am a blushoholic person.

 • SIGMA F82 round kabuki brush it is the most famous among all sigma brushes. This was the first choice of mine while ordering online, and I can proudly say I adore this little gem its great round headed dense brush that gave a nice flawless finish to my foundation and buff out all excessive powder from my face a perfect brush for foundation, concealer to achieve airbrushing look.

 • Sigma F84 I love the quality and brush its great like other, but I don’t really know the use of it some people using it for applying foundation or blush but rather than these 2, I use it for contouring my jaw and cheek bones, I think the shape really does a great work with contouring rather than blending foundation or applying blush with it. So for this brush I have a mixed feeling.

 • Sigma E05 I receive this brush with my purchase as a gift, and I am badly in love with this travel size e05 this eyeliner brush is super awesome or I can say the best brush for applying eyeliner the bristles are synthetic and pointed you can line your eyes with every possible way with this 1 brush. I love the color as well☺

Overall, I am glad that I ordered sigma brushes they are of great quality, and I believe if you're using good tools your makeup will turn. out very well.

DIY Bath Bomb Tutorial

Hey Ladies,

  Bath Bombs are 1 thing, which is always with me when am going to take a bath, am obsessed with bath bombs and I know many of you love it
   My obsession starts when my friend gifted me her hand made bath bombs back in U.K and oh wow I started loving my bath tub the colors the smell just make me so happy and I was so in love with them that I started buying and using them but buying it every time from any store or online is very pricey it literally take a lot of bugs out of my pocket monthly and I decided not to spend so much money on bath bombs which dissolve after 1 bath.

 Then I started researching about it and found this recipe of bath bombs, which is very easy, and can made in home easily without denting your pocket. And yes its way cheaper than buying from Lush, body shop or other stores.

At the moment I don’t have my own home made bombs so am just showing you the recipe with some pictures which other people made and from where I got this recipe I tried to make and results were bad first time but after a bit of practicing it was superb and turned up well. Amazing for those who love the bath bombs like me J

The ingredients are pretty common and can some of it can ind in your kitchen cabinets easily.

Dry ingredients:
 (By weight, as measured on a scale.)
    Baking Soda - 8 ounces
    Citric Acid - 4 ounces
    Corn Starch - 4 ounces
    Salts - 4 ounces (, I used Dead Sea Salts, but mineral salts work too, and are easier to find and significantly less expensive.)

Wet Ingredients:
    Water - .75 tbsp
    Essential or Fragrance Oil - 2 tsp (for these I used a Ginger Peach.)
    Oil - 2.5 tbsp (I used cherry kernel, but any light vegetable oil will work.)
Food coloring - 1 or 2 drops. (Your color will look very dark in the emulsion, but will be light in the fizzes, so as to not leave rings around the tub. Just use 1,2 drops of colours.

These are the Dry Ingredients( Ref Googled)

All Dry ingredients weighted and put in a plastic bowl
 1. Start by weighing the dry ingredients. You should always measure by weigh when making bath bombs. I weigh in the following order: baking soda, citric acid, corn starch, then epsom salts. They weigh 10 ounces (284g) combined. You can weigh them one by one or together. As you can see by the picture sequence, I weighed them together. 

2. Once you have weighed the dry ingredients, put them in a plastic or crystal bowl and set aside.

3. Now measure your wet ingredients and mix them all in a plastic or glass bowl. They won't mix perfectly, don't worry about that. You should have a little less that 2 tablespoons total of wet ingredients. Maybe you won't need that entire amount

4. Start adding the wet ingredients to the dry mix one teaspoon at a time. Don't add more than that amount at once because the mix will start reacting. Whisk the mix at the same time you're adding the liquid. 

5. When you have added two teaspoons, test your mix by pinching a little bit in your hand. If it stays together and feels damp, your mix is ready. But if falls apart, keep adding liquid, 1/2 teaspoon at a time and testing the mix after each addition. The finished mix should feel like damp sand in your hands. It should not feel wet. If you think you have added too much liquid, add a little corn starch as needed. 
6. Now lets get ready to mold. Fill the mold you chose with some of the mix. Add as much as you need so the powder is compressed in the mold, it should be tight. You can leave it in the mold or remove it. I decided to remove it and it kept its form. Some people find that it is almost impossible for it to keep its form after it is removed. So if you've never done this before, leave it in the mold until it's completely dry. 
7. Let it dry for 24 hours. 

Your finished product should look somewhat like this ones, depending on the color or shape you used.
