5 MUST HAVE MAKEUP BAG PRODUCTS FOR DAILY USE

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Some girls can’t really get out of their homes without putting on makeup.They just love to pamper themselves up and put their best foot forward.

But its not possible to carry your huge and heavy makeup bag or kit everywhere.So,to help you out with the dilemma of what to carry daily,we have come up with these products.

1. Base

A base for your makeup is a must.With so many to choose from,there is something or the other for everyone.If you want high,flawless coverage then foundation is for you while BB cream is subtle and just veils your pores.

My favourite pick is Bobbi Brown’s Stick Foundation Stick which has been formulated for a weightless feel.Best part about is that its hassle free and you can just keep it easily in your bag to give your skin a fix when needed.

2. Concealer

It should be a luminous pigment that brightens up your skin and also works as highlighter to highlight your cheeks and brow bones.

Illamasqua Skin Base Lift is the best pick for under eye concelaer as it gives eyes a dewy feel with a light dab only.

3. Lip-balm

Some might even think of a lipstick more essential than a lip balm,but again its a personal choice.

We girls have a habit of carrying multiple lip balms of different flavours in our bags and why not.Who loves to roam around with chapped lips!

Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm is the best option if one is going for a tinted lip balm for that light flush of colour.

4. Kajal

Mascara can also be a pick for someone but it depends from person to person.

If eyes are not well defined,then the person’s face seems dull and uninteresting.One can give it a fresh and sexy appearance with Elle 18 New Eye Drama Bold Kajal which has a creamy texture and has jet black colour.

5. Cream Blusher

Blusher gives a natural looking,fresh flush to the cheeks and that’s why should be creamy.Contouring your cheeks with a blusher is extremely important.

M&S Limited Collection Cream Blush is a goof-proof,buildable choice.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Red is a feminine and bold colour.Every girl has atleast one red dress in her closet and why not?It makes one look sexy and is also a colour which boys love the most.

But sometimes,the red colour itself cannot do the whole talking.Accessories enhance the look of a red dress.But one needs to be really careful while choosing colours with red.

We have researched and prepared a piece for you to go through before you grab that dress for your next evening party or prom night.

1. Red dress and complementing shoes

Not all colours go well with red.One should avoid colours like blue,green or brown.Instead go for golden,silver or red itself.Another good shoe option is a printed one, if you’re so bold.

Consider the event also wherein your dress will be used.If you are going out with friends or a party,go for bold and daring colours.Printed shoes will look fabuolous.

For a formal event or a meeting,its more about elegance and sophistication.Subtle nude or black will go better.

2. Red dress and sassy handbags

Handbags are a safe choice but can ruin the overall look also if not paired well.

If your dress is made of a smooth fabric, a printed handbag will give a fun and chic touch to your look. Black, gold, silver or nude are the perfect shades. Always try to match your shoes with your handbag.

WHY DO WOMEN NOT WEAR THE SOME CLOTHES WHICH THEY BOUGHT SO FONDLY?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Women are accused of being a shopping fanatic and guess what, we prove them correct in all aspects. Yes, we are a shopping fanatic and we shop a lot and that is not at all illegal, at least not now. So, what’s wrong with shopping? At least we are loyal to something which most people cannot be. We tend to buy so many outfits but do you feel it when I say that we buy so many outfits but end up keeping most of them. Yes, we all do that. But what is the actual reason that we buy something but do not wear that? Well, we know these are some hidden but known to our reasons and I am sharing few of them to let us have a light felt the moment.

1. SAVING IT FOR THE IMAGINARY OCCASIONS

We all have great outfits in our closet but we do not always wear them. That Lacey off shoulder tops which we bought so fondly is still stacking up in the cupboard with its price tag. We love it a lot but we think to spare it for some grand occasion. And in this process, the outfit becomes old and we are late in wearing it. So, instead of keeping it, it is better to wear it, NOW.

2. NO MOOD TO WEAR IT ON A PARTICULAR DAY

You again came across to that cute lacey off shoulder top in your closet. But again you will not wear today just because you are not in a mood to wear today. And you will again keep it saved for the next day and it will be spared.

Image result for women and her closet

3. EXCUSES ARE ALWAYS READY DEPENDING UPON THE OUTFITS

There will be lots of outfits in your closet which you will not be wearing just by saying that you are not too young to wear these outfits now. But you are never too old to experiment with your looks and style, anytime.

4. BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT IN SHAPE

You bought a cute crop when you had the flat tummy but now you have gained a bit, and hence you have stopped wearing. You would swear to wear it again when you will loose those extra pounds but instead of waiting for so long, you can wear it just by styling it in newer ways.

5. IT MAY HAVE GONE OUT OF TREND, NOW

You must have bought skinny jeans before, but since the fashion of it has faded a boyfriend and mom jeans have taken over, you will switch to it and not ever bother for wearing that again. Hence, it is stacked till the trend of it refreshes.

So, these were some of the hilarious and the terrific reasons as for why women do not wear their clothes more than once or why they have so many outfits. we hope you could relate to this.
