3 Ways to use an Eyeshadow

Eyeshadows are a super versatile product that has different uses. From bronzers to highlighters, eyeshadow can be repurposed to mimic a variety of beauty staples. So pull out those neglected shadows, dust them off and keep reading to learn our tips on how to reintroduce them.

Contouring Powder
For a defined contour, use a matte brown or taupe shadow and a small ,fluffy blending brush to carve out the hollows of your cheeks, define along your jawline and also at your temples. Then use a larger, fluffy blush or contour brush and a light bronzer to blend out any harsh lines you created with the shadow. Alternatively, for a lighter bronzed glow, use a matte brown shadow (about two or three shades darker than your natural skin tone) and a large bronzing brush. Apply and blend lightly along your temples, cheekbones and jawline.

 

Lip Tint
You can easily create a customized lip tint with two simple products: clear lip balm or a Vaseline and an eyeshadow. First, apply a Vaseline or a clear gloss and then over it apply an eyeshadow of your choice with the help of your hands.  The more shadow you use, the more pigmented the tint will be. Also, you can apply over lipstick for added shine. You can also take a light shimmery shade from your eyeshadow range an apply on your cupid’s bow to give you a pouted look instantly.

 

Highlighter
Having that glow on our face looks amazing!! So using a fan brush dust a little bit of a neutral shimmery shadow on the tops of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, on your cupid’s bow and under the arch of your brow.

Hope you guys enjoyed this. Thank you !!

DSC_0020(2)

The exfoliating scrub exfoliates in two ways:

  • Apple and almond acid dissolves debris in pores.
  • Apricot grains scrub away dead skin cells.

Now, those apricot grains? They’re big. Larger than you’d usually find in an exfoliator. I didn’t hate that or anything, but it’s important to be aware. Because the grain is large, you don’t want to scrub too vigorously or with too much pressure or you could damage your skin.After just one use, my skin was soft. It felt lovely. I can’t attest to its skin-brightening, but it definitely didn’t dry out my skin, which is good.

Overall, I’m happy with the way my skin felt after using the scrub.

Peter Lamas Exfoliating Pumpkin Facial Scrub Review: The Final Verdict

Do I like this pumpkin facial scrub? Yes, I do. I love how my skin felt after using it and I especially liked the scent. Still, users have to take care because of the large grains. And people shouldn’t go in expecting it to smell exactly like pumpkin. Will I use it again? Yes.
