Thus, when to wear red lipstick is no problem. You can choose this lipstick color whenever you want to be more attractive and energetic.

Classic red lipstick is the popular red tone because it helps you combine outfits easily.

Lip care

Another important factor to make perfect lips with passionate red color of french lipsticks is lip care. Dry lips with flaked skin can’t be ideal to apply any lipsticks. To care for your lips, there are 2 main steps, including exfoliation and moisturization. 

Exfoliation

There are some notices about exfoliation you should remember:

  • Exfoliate your lips 1-2 times per week and avoid over exfoliation
  • You can use an exfoliating product for lips or do it yourself with common ingredients such as sugar, cinamon, etc.
  • Treat gently with your lips because it’s rather thin skin and vulnerable. Don’t scrub hard.
  • Scrub in small circles for best effect.

Moisturization

Like other skin parts of our body, lips need to be moisturized for smoothness. There are more moisturizing products for the body and face than lip. In case you have Asian skin, let’s consider these products from Korea. Korean moisturisers that will suit Asian skin now are very easy to buy with affordable prices.

However, there are still thousands of moisturizing products for lips which are called lip balm or lip gloss. In case you want to use organic products for your lips, moisturizing ingredients such as olive oil, honey, etc. can be the perfect choices. You can directly apply them on your lips before sleeping.

Conclusion 

French lipsticks definitely deserve the favorite beauty items of most women with high quality, fame and prestige. And their passionate red color of french lipsticks is one of the most important factors making charming, attractive and classy looks of Parisian women.

January 2020 – BE INSPIRED with Essential Beauty Trends of REVLON

Featured

This month I am using 3 major products and 1 particular product that was actually from Priceline Pharmacy here in Australia, in Kingsway Shopping Centre in Madeley. I will be using other branded products for foundation, and eyeliner and the rest of the face with whatever I do. So for Christmas I got the REVLON Bronze Glow Highlighting Palette 030 where you brush on to enhance complexion for a Natural sun kissed look!

I have started a You Tube Channel and I have done TWO videos NOW!!!!! Here is the link to the second video

EMMALISA TILLI’s January 2020 – BE INSPIRED with Essential Beauty Trends of REVLON YOUTUBE CHANNEL VIDEO

where I will be highlighting the products I have listed. I did an introduction pre – blog post as a practice as I have never done an actual proper beauty you tube channel video. I did one and was meant to do a blog post with the products I had you may notice but I never got around to doing the blog post! So today I will be using 3 Revlon products for the haul, but I don’t have Revlon foundation anymore. I used to use the one with the red lid that every girl used in those days, and would definitely like to get it again, but today I will be using the following:

First off, I will be using the:

MAC Prep and Prime Natural Radiance Base Lumiere – Natural Radiance Illuminating Base

A silky gel emulsion, rich in natural ingredients, that hydrates and primes to improve foundation or powder application and promote smooth texture. Vitamins E and C protect with antioxidants, while caffeine calms skin. Illuminating pearl powders reflect optic radiance. Now in two shades: Radiant Yellow is especially effective on deeper skin tones and Radiant Pink for fairer skin tones. The formula disappears upon application, resulting in a beautiful glow.

KEY CLAIMS AND BENEFITS
  • Provides long-term hydration
  • Smoothes and softens skin
  • Improves radiance
  • Refines skin
  • Silicone-free

NARS – Light 2 Vanilla Soft Matte Complete Concealer

Natural look. High coverage. Concealing hits an all-time high with this lightweight, full coverage concealer. Get high-performance correction with soft-focus blurring: Soft Matte Complete Concealer instantly conceals dark circles, redness, discoloration, hyperpigmentation, blemishes, and acne with a light-diffusing effect that blurs and smooths. Overtime, skin becomes softer and smoother from collagen-boosting peptides, hyaluronic acid, and a protective cocktail of Vitamins A, C, and E. Complete comfort. Completely natural-looking coverage. Oil-free.

Smash Box Studio Skin 15 hour wear hydrating foundation – It is a high-performing liquid foundation that helps you face anything. Studio Skin evens skin tone & never settles into pores & lines. Find your perfect match among 40 shades (that won’t oxidise) & a broad range of undertones. My shade is: FAIR WITH WARM OLIVE UNDERTONE

You can get it for $36 at Smashbox online

After the foundation I will be using the eye primer from Younique. It is called:

Moodstruck Eye Primer

$25

You can watch a You Tube Totorial HERE as I forgot to include it in the YouTube tutorial I did!!!

Then I used:

Revolution Makeup Revolution London Reloaded Velvet Rose Eyeshadow Palette – bestselling

A truly compelling mixture of 15 smooth and rich shades, featuring essential beiges and browns, multi-functional shimmery golds, burgundy hues and an ultra pigmented black with a copper glitter twist

Shades;
matte peachy beige
shimmery warm gold leaf
matte brandy brown
matte warm taupe
metallic cream gold
matte deep warm bronze
matte peachy beige
metallic tan rose
metallic chocolate bronze
matte muted apricot
metallic peachy gold
matte burnt cinnamon
matte deep brown
matte caramel
shimmer black with a copper twist

How Pretty is this GORGEOUS palette!!!??

And then after applying the eyeshadow using a highlighter then a brown one and then a gold one I used the:

REVLON Blush Highlight Palette

BRONZE GLOW


Easy to blend, buildable colour gives a multi-dimensional sculpted look. Provides natural colour highlights and a soft healthy glow

This is my current FAVOURITE contour palette and only one at the moment, when I went to do the tutorial that didn’t upload I was COMPLETELY frustrated there was an error and I couldn’t show you the WHOLE 22 minutes of each step of each product. It was hard work and took a long time so when the ending was frustrating I was so glad when I did another video it at least uploaded! I will do my best to do another one hopefully as I had a lot of fun with the first idea tutorial, I could get used to this! What I will do is upload pictures of me so you can see the finished product otherwise it would have been a TOTAL waste of time!!!! All that work! haha! I could do so much for a review on this highlighter palette and I wish I could provide an EXCEPTIONAL review! If you look at how the gold and the browns gathered together you can see the contouring is just AMAZING!!!!! I was HIGHLY excited over this one product and I completely swear by it at the moment I cannot recommend it enough!!! I think out of all the products I used in this blog post/youtube channel/tutorial it is by FAR my absolute favourite!!! If you are olive skinned EVEN better, it gives such a beautiful bronzed sun kissed glow and if that is the look you are going for this is the BEST product to use during this Summer season in Perth, Western Australia.

After the highlighter I then used the:

Still Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner

I love how it has that smudged effect, as it doesn’t look totally perfect but it is a nice line effect along with that 50’s look. An iconic smudge stick liner designed to deliver highly-pigmented colour and long-lasting wear even on sensitive or watery eyes.  I particularly used this eyeliner as it is Ultra-Creamy and it builds the product up for a smudged eyeshadow effect…



After the eyeliner I then used REVLON VOLUME & LENGTH MAGNIFIED

Full, feathery lashes. High-gloss finish.

This transformative mascara makes a big thing out of ordinary lashes, with maximum volume and unbelievable length.

I have seen some good some bad reviews on this, I like the fact it wasn’t one of those mascara that say oh! it is FULL of volume, and has a crappy wand, THIS wand happens to be favourite. I love the wand of this mascara and it does give quite the volume but I found it hard to get that full lash effect even though it says volume and length, i felt it did the job anyhow!

Revlon Colour Stay Lipliner

Rich color. Long-wearing definition

I received this Revlon Colorstay lipliner in Mauve as a Christmas Present. I have always been a fan of Revlon products and their Colorstay line especially. This lipliner was absolutely beautiful. It can be used to define your & glides on easily and not JUST THAT, its products are made to prevent bleeding. My lips felt exceptionally smooth. The Mauve shade gives that enhanced & natural colour. It REALLY DEFINED the outside section of my lips so I highly recommend this lipliner and have added it to my list of favourites!!!








La di da!

What do you think of the finished look?

Do you have any favourite products from this collection?

Do you prefer the Revlon Mascara?

Smashbox Foundation?

Stila eyeliner?

Leave comments below on which product is your favourite and why, and I will be happy to reply! I love to hear from you. Especially if it is to do with the category of Beauty! If you comment I will add you to my list for my NEXT GIVEAWAY.

Love Emmalisa

9 Beauty Hacks Every Woman Must Know


The Makeup industry has evolved a lot in the past few years, and standards of makeup perfection are very high. There are various makeup products available in the market, starting from eyelash curlers to highlighters, which have made makeup choice even complex.

Makeup is an art that one can learn.

But not everyone has the understanding of right makeup choices, applying techniques and makeover choices.

So, I am here with some simple makeup tricks and hacks that will make your life easier.

Transform Liner:

There is a variety of liners available in the market. Basically, liners are divided into three categories:

pencil liner

gel liner

liquid liner.

The pencil liner works best for the beginners because of its good grip.

However, liquid liners are more for professional use for thin, winged, sleek looks, whereas gel liners are the darkest and highly pigmented liners. I love the result of gel liners the most but gel liners are typically available in very few colours. To go crazy with different colours and texture of gel liner. I transform my coloured pencil liner into gel liner by simply introducing its tip to the flame for a few seconds. Let it cool, apply and see the change in consistency of the product in front of your eyes.

Make your Eyeshadow Shade Pop:

Many of us use primer and concealers to make our eyeshadow stay for a longer time period and to make its colour pop out. But what if you missed out your concealer? Well, don’t worry – the next hack is for you!

Do you have a white eyeliner? Yes. Great!

White eyeliner is a versatile product that can help you resolve many makeup problems. Well in this situation you can use your white eyeliner to cover your eyelid and blend a little. The opaque consistency of the white eyeliner will help sheer or less pigmented eyeshadow look more colourful on the eyelid. In addition to this, due to its high consistency it provides eyeshadow a base to stick properly. Know more about white eyeliner here.

Revive Your Eye Makeup:

Eye makeup products such as mascara or liner have a life of 6 months. But sometimes these products dry out really fast. Plumping mascara or liner tube is one of the reasons too. Well, to make them stay wet for longer, you can use a few drops of eye drops or saline solution instead of alcohol because they are friendlier to eyes. If you do not have eye drops we have another tip for you. Dip your mascara tube in a bowl filled with hot water for at least 10-15 minutes. This will also help you revive your dried mascara or liner. Find some amazing mascaras on this post.

Make your Customized Lipstick:

There are several makeup brands with numerous lipstick shades but there are times when you are not able to find perfect shade that you want or require. By using loose makeup colour pigments and Vaseline you can create your own lip colour. The benefit of this technique is you have control over the consistency of colour. Similarly, you can make tinted lip balms by replacing Vaseline with bees wax and coconut oil.

Avoid Peach Fuzz:

Always apply makeup with downward stroke because most of us have facial hairs and they usually grow downwards. Applying makeup with upward strokes will make your facial hairs standout.

Concealer:

Applying concealer with multiple strokes is not enough. If you apply your concealer in a triangular shape under your eyes, between your nose and cheek bones it will sculpt your face, blend well and less countering will be required. In addition to this, people who are suffering for breakouts can check concealers for covering pimples and acne scars here.

Two-in-one:

Well there are times when you fall short of makeup items and you think there is no way out. But let me tell you one tip that can save you when you do not have your liner with yourself. Take your liner brush and a mascara tube, open it and make sure that the wand contains enough product. Dab your liner brush on the wand and you are good to go.

Stay hydrated:

The simplest and easiest way to have younger looking skin is staying hydrated. Our body requires water to drain out toxins from our body, which not only cleanse our body from the inside but we can also see it’s reflection inside out.

Matte it:

Like your lipstick’s shade but do not want to go glossy? Turn your glossy lipstick into matte. Apply your lipstick and hold a tissue paper between your lips. It will soak any excessive moisture. Now take face powder and by the help of brush, apply a thin coat of powder on your lips. Do not apply too much and you have the matte lips in the same shade that you love.

5 Must Have Eye Makeup Products


Nature has provided every woman with unique beauty traits. In every culture there are different trends and techniques used to enhance the beauty trait. But what remains same in every region of the world is to apply makeup to instant change. It’s been year’s women are using different makeup products to get a signature look. However main emphasis has always been on the eye makeup because your eyes speak. Eyes reflect the personality of a person. Therefore to enhance the beauty of your eyes we must be known to products that can help us achieve the perfect eye look. Well I don’t consider talking about as simple products as basic black liner or kohl as the basic product you need because it is too basic. However, below is the list of some eye makeup products essential for achieving different eye looks to turn the heads. In addition to this, few tips are provided to use them in the best way possible.

Under eye concealer:

First thing first! Dark circles makes you look like you have escaped zombie apocalypse. These days due to busy and hectic routine many of us experience sleep deprivation that leads to under eye circles. However sometimes they get naturally shadowed. Basic concealers are so common and sometimes not able to perform their job on point. At this time you take help of color correctors to hide your dark circles completely and then conceal them with the regular concealer. But let me introduce you to the one product that a stand as one-man army against this problem, the product is under eye concealers. Thick pigmented under-eye concealers are developed with peachy undertones that go perfect with every skin tone. It is a multi-purpose product that serves as a color corrector, primer and concealer as basic.

White eyeliner:

White eyeliner is another versatile and a multipurpose product. Using a simple brown and black eyeliner pencils where define your eyes and helps in achieving natural look. White eyeliner can be used for natural everyday look. Do you know tight lining your lower eyelashes with white eyeliner makes your eyes look bigger and brighter? Yes it does. Doing so creates illusion of eliminating gap between eye ball and eye lashes making them look bigger. Other than this, if you fall short of eye-primer someday you can use it as an eye primer before applying eye shadow to get a perfect sticky base for your eyeshadow so that the colors will pop-out when applied. Another way you can use it is to try create new styles. Double it with your regular liner and you are ready to flaunt.

Eye Makeup Remover:

As applying makeup is an art so is removing it. We usually get sick of removing waterproof mascara, creamy eyeshadows or gel eyeliners. After all these struggles, eye makeup remover usually comes at the last priority on majority of the makeup users list but it as important as other makeup implements. Eye makeup removers are composed of ingredients that helps you to remove those can’t stop, won’t stop stubborn makeup formulas. Using eye makeup remover protects your skin from drying and protects your eyes from getting makeup allergies and removes every bit of the makeup residue.

Mascara:

You would be thinking that who does not know that mascara is essential for eye makeup but mentioning it here has a different reason. Mascara is a quick fix for your eyes. If you are lazy and do not want to put any makeup, you can go for mascara to enjoy the perks of beautiful eyes. Therefore, from past decades women are using mascara to provide volume to their eyelashes. However by the time formula an application technique has also evolved. The shapes of mascara brushes have been evolved too. I recently tried tubing mascara that turned out amazing for me. Tubing mascara has the same formula as other mascara’s but different brush. Applying it makes your eyelashes covered on 360 degree with the product making your lashes even fuller. To know more about it check this post.

Tip: Always use an eye-lash curler before applying mascara to them, apply mascara by going back and forth this will leave a good amount of product on your eyelashes making them look fuller.  For professional touch apply false-eye lashesat the end. J

Eye Shadow:

Variety of color adds dramatic statement to your makeup. Eye shadow fulfills this purpose. There are varieties of eye shadows available in the market today. Creamy, glittery, matte and powder you name it you get it.  I always prefer picking up an eyeshadow palette that contains all varieties of these color pops. This would help you going from natural look to elegant, from day time look to night look and funky statements. However, if you like to go for same color again and again try cream eyeshadow they are way pigmented then powder eyeshadows.

These are some products that you can use for signing simple eye statements in addition with using them creatively.

7 Genius Makeup Tricks That Shave Years off Your Look Makeup


Makeup is one of the most important things for a girl. Every girl wants to look attractive and beautiful all the times. To do so is impossible nowadays. Women have to do work both in office and at home. They have to expose their skins under the sun, and they work hard for getting the finance they need to facilitate themselves. Before some decades the trend used to be much different.

Girls used to work at home, and it was the responsibility of male to earn capital, but now the trend has changed. In today’s era male and female have to work together to move constantly with time.

This work makes a woman much busier and indulges them much in work. At this time nobody can think of makeover. The girls who are possessive towards their facial expression usually opt surgery and operation. This causes a higher finance and gives much pain.

Surgery creates an artificial look and shine which can be spotted very easily. This makes many girls curious about anyway which requires less time and gives the fairness and smooth skin they intend to have.

Every working woman is getting much older with time, but they have no solution to avoid this. But even in this difficult time nature is still very helpful and some accessories can have a potential to make us younger in no time.

1- Fairness cream
To look beautiful the most important thing is the fairness. To gain fairness, you can use a fairness cream. First of all, you must decide a natural cream with fewer chemicals and harmful material.

2- Face-wash
The face wash is a material used to give you a smooth skin. Face-wash is to be used instead of soap to wash your face. A face-wash helps you get a smooth skin by removing the unessential from your face.

3- Sun-screen
Sun-screen helps you avoid the harmful rays emitted by the sun. It acts as a medium to reflect the dangerous rays such as the UV rays.

4- Mascara
Best tube mascara can be very efficient to give you a cute look. This mascara has a very thin and dark line which can get broader according to the requirements.

5- Cleansing
A cleanser is used to clean the dirt and the spots on the skin. What it helps is to avoid the growth of pimples and dark spots.

6- Lip-gloss
The modern-day upgrade to lipstick is a lip-gloss. It gives a glossy look to a girl to make her look younger day by day.

7- Diet
It is very important to remain on a diet. A diet helps us gain a better shape of a body. With inhaling more fats not only causes our belly fat to increase but it also makes the structure of our face much wider.

7 Habits of Women with Great Skin


You have probably heard people say that someone “just has good skin”, but the truth is that behind that seemingly perfect, smooth skin is a stable, well-balanced skin routine and self-care, without which, no matter how good your genetics, you wouldn’t be able to have good skin. So, let’s see what are the seven most important steps to having a flawless skin routine.

1. Cleanse

source

The most important part of any skin routine is to first get rid of any impurities that have collected in your pores and on the surface of your skin during the day or while you were sleeping. Use a gentle cleanser like the Clarins cleansing milk to remove impurities without being too hard on your gentle skin.

2. Choose your cosmetics carefully

We live in the day and age when most of the things we use every day are filled with all sorts of chemicals. But for certain things, like the food we eat or the products we apply to our skin, we want to make extra sure that they’re as natural as possible, to give us the best results. Organic, all natural brands like Tammy Fender are great options and they will give you the best results, while also not hurting our planet.

3. Get enough sleep

Many of us lead active, non-stop lifestyles, and are often left having to compensate for that fact, like taking supplements because we don’t have time to eat or putting concealer on the bags under our eyes because we didn’t get enough sleep. But the truth is, there is no product in the world that can do for us all the things that a full night’s sleep can do. It will not only replenish our energy, but give our skin time to recover and rest.

4. Apply sun protection

Everyone likes to put on a tan, but if you’re not careful, you can seriously damage your skin just by being in the sun. Let’s break it down: the vitamin that you get from the sun is great – not just for your skin, but for your whole body. However, the sun is not what it used to be, and the rays are now more harmful than ever. This is why it’s extremely important to use a product with the high SPF, every single day. Use a primer like Nars multi-protect, or apply sunscreen during your makeup routine.

5. Hydrate

For glowing skin, it is crucial to be well hydrated, inside and out. Hydrated skin has more elasticity, fewer wrinkles and its own special glow. There are two main things you should do: First, drink a lot of water. The 8 cups per day are just a minimum, so make sure you carry a water bottle around with you and drink whenever you feel thirsty. Secondly, you should always be using a good hydration cream. Products like The Body Shop’s Nourishing night cream are great to put on before you go to bed, while lighter options like Estee Lauder’s Daywear is the perfect thing to apply in the morning before putting on makeup.

6. Regular treatments

source

Having a daily routine is important, but sometimes our skin requires extra care. Consider making it a part of your monthly or quarterly routine to go to a professional cosmetician for a treatment of your choice that will improve your skin and give it a boost. But for a more regular schedule, getting a good scrub like the Cosmedix Purity Detox scrub will allow you to exfoliate your skin more frequently. Make sure you don’t do it more than every third day, because you risk taking off too much of the top layer, and always follow the instructions on the product.

7. Healthy habits

It’s no secret that beauty comes from within, and the same goes for health. If you practice healthy habits, eat a balanced diet, drink lots of water and exercise regularly, your skin will show the glow and radiance of health. Avoid eating oily and greasy food, since it can clog your pores; and avoid dehydration to keep your skin glowing.

Of course, some skin types are prone to acne and other blemishes, but as long as you are doing everything in your power to have healthy, happy skin, you can show it off to the world and be proud of it.

10 ways to practice self-care PLUS a Book Giveaway!


When was the last time you did something JUST for yourself?

Has your daily routine been too much and you just need time to learn to relax ?

I have been longing to do this post for a very long time. Not only did someone recommend it, But I have been wanting to come up with ideas and tips for a life filled with mindfulness, peacefulness and serenity. The things that create a time for spending some “you” time. At the end of the day I almost (daily) spend some “me” time.

I get home and pop the kettle on, and just do things to let myself rejuvenate, and renew my mind so that I can sleep better and smash the next day.

The following may work for you, may not, but I have not only researched, but put together my own ideas to cultivate building-blocks of self-care. This is not just something you try and do once and then just forget and get on with a busy hectic eventful life. You need to do these things consistently if you want to have a healthy, mental and physical well-being.

Here are some tips to go by that I think will benefit you in the long haul if you’re a busy person, (Mum, Wife, Entrepeneur, Business Woman, Full-time worker):

1. Listen to classical music or any easy listening (evening) type of music!

I recommend Jackie Evancho, Andre Rieu’, Kathleen Battle, Greta Bradman, Katherine Jenkins and composers like Bach, Tchaikovsky, Mozart and Beethoven. I trained as a classical music pianist for 8 years, so classical music is my escape. That’s why I basically put it as number One! But if you don’t particularly like classical music, whatever kind of music you think is relaxing for you!

2. Book a massage 💆🏼 or an ultimate day spa in Perth. Or a Luxurious Pamper Package at a High End Day Spa. 

 

 

3.Read a novel such as Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, or an inspirational/motivational book to get even more ideas on looking after yourself.

4. Breathe – Sit on your bed (or even lay) and concentrate on your breathing. Inhale and exhale slowly, feeling and making sure you are relaxed.

5. Try a different kind of tea – Opt for herbal green, or chamomile tea is also known as a relaxant.

 

6. Another idea is to just lie on your bed for five minutes and close your eyes. Not necessarily taking a nap, although a power snooze for 5 minutes is excellent! I just think lying there and closing your eyes is a time to renew.

7. Organise a Girls Getaway to escape, relax and indulge……

8. Create your own aromatherapy without the expensive candles with Little Finch Candle and Co.

 

 

Some oils to use can be the Aromachologie Relaxing Essential Oil Blend which is only $25 through L’Occitane which is a great lavender oil to soothe yourself and create a healthier you. For some more ideas on oils visit my Doterra Party page and get an idea of what oils would be your favourite or type.

9. Make a cup of tea and pull out a chick flick! Something like “The other woman” with Cameron Diaz is a laugh! Or “How to lose a guy in 10 days” even if you’ve watched it 100 times like me! To me it is a classic! And will always be a favourite!

 

10. Be selfish. Not in the wrong way, but do that one thing today just because it makes you happy. If there’s something you’ve always wanted to do and something stopped you from pursuing it, I say, GO FOR IT! If you have that gut instinct feeling about pursuing a career, going in a different direction in life, changing courses, then, one thing I always have believed is “Trust your gut!!!!!!”

I am a firm believer in self-care, and am learning new and more ideas from other bloggers who love to post things similar.

Another idea is to have an early nights sleep. That’s always been a top tip!

Go shopping.

Priceline has a fantastic product from Essano which is a Rosehip Certified Organic Mist Toner which is enriched with Kakadu Plum and Green Tea. I only got it for $10.39.

Tonight I sprayed it on after putting on my night cream and it is just soooo soothing and refreshing. I feel it doing wonders! It’s more of a day spray to hydrate your skin but it’s still nice to spray on before bedtime.

This time I am doing a giveaway. If you comment your favourite tip and why, you will receive this delicious story of a book!
