Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder .But no harm in helping the one, who is looking right?Looking good not only makes you feel good, but you actually help people by showing them a pretty face.Social service ?Yes that’s exactly what I mean.I am a little mad when it comes to makeup.I end up buying too much on a binge and then having to throw them away .You do know that makeup needs regular purging,right?
So its best if you try one new product at a time.Otherwise,if you are not a model or a full makeup-on-everyday person ,Your makeup may need to be thrown out even before its halfway done.
5 Beauty Products I am Thankful for
I hate chapped dry lips .I also love chatting with friends and family .All chatterboxes know,that talking too much ,can dry the lips.So keeping them moisturized and sealing in the moisturizer with a good lip balm is a must .That way the lipstick looks better.Cracked lips and lipstick is not a great look. Boroline is still a favourite,because it works

If happiness is the magic elixir to make you beautiful from inside,then a beautiful skin is the only makeup you need.I love moisturizers .But can’t use heavy oily ones .So I use NMF moisturizer and body lotions for all moisture needs of my skin.For the mandatory anti ageing trial , Olay Anti-ageing serum works very well for me.Its light non-greasy and never blocks my pores.
Going out for a quick trip to the market ?I never forget my sunscreen.Tanning which happens with a heavy-duty sunscreen is temporary and you can get it off with a few packs at home.But the non use of sunscreen will make your skin develop a permanent tan and sun damage is inevitable.I use Sunban Forte sunscreen cream
I am an eyeliner person.Since i wear contact lenses I avoid too much Kaajal .What I do is line my upper lid with eye liner to give it a nice winged look and keep the lower margin free.It’s in between made-up and not so much!My favourite is the Lakme Liquid eyeliner range.Since eye makeup is frequently replaced I take care to buy quality product but not outrageously expensive ones.
Then comes the lipstick. Lipstick needs to be changed every 12 months. If it smells or tastes rancid it’s definitely gone bad.Remember you practically eat a little bit of lipstick with each of your meals.I am still to find a 100% non-transfer eco-friendly and kiss friendly lipstick.I am really looking forward to try the new Lakme Absolute Argan oil collection.It has 15 gorgeous shades to choose from!
I was recently gifted two new lipsticks.So I have to wait sometime before I can claim lipstick to be a health necessity.One is by Sugar cosmetics,and the other one by Nudus. Do you want to try lead free cruelty free lipsticks?Nudus is one such available on amazon. Sephora too has a range of lead free lipstick.
I am a big fan of collecting lipsticks .My favourite colour is Red!The very crimson to the lightly stained .I have a nice collection.Problem is finding healthy safe products. Hardly any lipstick brands display their composition (something to do with secret formula).So it makes us vulnerable to unscrupulous brands.
Important thing to remember is anything which is “natural” is not safe !Lead the most common contaminant which is still used as a pigment in many brands, is present in the earth’s crust.So it’s definitely natural .But not fit for humans.While looking for safe lipstick you may have to spend a little bit more.But it’s worth it.
