Favorite Autumn Lipsticks

Autumn, the season of change brings with it cool weather which means it’s the time of the year for knitted jumpers, cozy scarfs and spiced lattes. But, for makeup enthusiasts this transitional season brings something more exciting – new makeup products and skin care routine! Changing the makeup to the season palette is just like adding a new piece to your wardrobe – preparing for the season and just being on the trend.
The one makeup product that changes for me with the season is the Lipstick. I just love the fact that how one thing (a lipstick) can completely transform your look from drab to fab!

The thing that concerns me the most during this transitional season is how my skin behaves. I have dry skin so I’m mostly looking out for products that keep my skin moistened and hydrated. With the lipstick trends when it comes to pulling off the right shade, matte finish lipstick trend might not be the best one for people like me who get chapped and dry lips in autumn/winter easily.

While lip exfoliation and using lip balm is an option for smotth application of lipsticks but I’m the kind of person who’d rather choose a formula that would keep the lips moisturized and won’t enhance any cracks. The best lipsticks that I have found and are my favorite this Autumn are by Estée Lauder from their Pure Envy Sculpting Lipstick Collection.
What makes these Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks my favorite is the formula. This range of lipsticks is formulated with time-release moisture complex with hyaluronic acid that helps capture and infuse hydration leaving the lips soft and moisturized. Making these lipsticks a must-have for Autumn/Fall season.
The lipsticks are highly pigmented, glides on easily and covers lips fully in just one swipe. The texture is smooth and creamy but light. It has a satin-finish and a very comfortable texture that you won’t even know you’re wearing something. The shades have a good staying power and can last from 4-6 hours depending on the shade. It is a bit transferable but not like it’ll completely come off.
I also really like the shape of the lipstick bullet, the way it is sculpted. It makes the application very easy covering the lips fully. You don’t even need a lip pencil with these lipsticks. Theses have a sweet, vanilla scent and no taste at all and come in a luxurious gold and navy case with magnetic closure.
Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks are available in 21 shades ranging from nudes to browns, pinks to berries, corals to reds and mauves to plums. My favorites for the Autumn Season are from each category category, almost.
The first shade is Estee Lauder Pure Color Sculpting Lipstick Intense Nude in number 130. This shade is a mid-tone rosy neutral. Comes from the Nudes to Browns category. It has warm undertones but is more on the pink-brown nude side which makes it a perfect nude shade for me. While Nude Shade is very personal to each person, I think this one is the perfect shade for me. 
It’s a very everyday kind of a shade which you can wear to work or just every day. The texture is light and creamy, it doesn’t accentuate any cracks on the lips. With it’s luminous finish and rich, opaque coverage this lipstick shade has become my everyday go-to lipstick.
For more dramatic and bold lips we have Vengeful Red in shade 350. It is a perfect crimson red, is vibrant with a luminous sheen just what a red lipstick shade should be like. With it’s full opaque coverage the lipstick glides on beautifully giving you fuller lips for a curvious pout. 
The color has a strong staying power and after 4-5 hours it leaves a stain making your lips look tinted and that’s what I absolutely love about this shade. 
Shade Dynamic  in number 410  is from the mauves and plums family but the shade is more on a muted, dusty rose side. It has coral undertone making it more like a mid-tone warm neutral shade. Because it has rosy coral undertones this shade look beautiful when applied.
It’s not really nude but gives a kick of color on your lips making them appear fuller. It’s again an everyday kind of a shade and is work appropriate too. You can build up the color to intensify the shade a bit but it looks very natural as it is too.
Here are the watches of the all 3 shades from  Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick collection. Overall I’m really impressed with the formula and wear-ability of these lipsticks. These are a bit pricey but are so much worth the investment. 
These are easy to wear, come in so many shades and keep your lips supple and hydrated. 

Have you tried any of the Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks? What is your favorite shade from the collection?

Do you have any Autumn Favorite Lipsticks? 
Do give these lipsticks a try this season. You won’t be dissapointed, I promise.

Are you Makeup Confident? Kick your Makeup Insecurities & Be Makeup Confident

Have you ever been criticized of wearing too much makeup? A lot of women are often criticized of wearing too much makeup and are referred as cake-face while others who don’t wear any makeup at all, they either look sick or tired. A woman is expected to be flawless, should be well-dressed at all times, well-mannered and a perfect natural beauty.

Beauty trends keep changing, there are times of thick brows and thin brows, matte lipsticks and glossy lipsticks, dewy look and matte look, face contouring trend and now we have strobing. The makeup industry will continue to bring new trends,but are you ready and makeup confident?

By Makeup Confident I mean, there are days when you feel confident and look great with the kind of makeup you put on. It not only brightens your day but also gives you a confident fresh start for the day ahead. So do you feel good about yourself with the kind of makeup you use? Are there makeup products that make you feel confident? For me wearing a lipstick is an instant confidence booster and mood lifter. It not only makes me feel good, brightens my face but makes it look alive too.
I’m a minimal makeup person but that doesn’t mean I don’t like the full makeup look. I admire beauty in all its forms and see makeup as a personal choice. I certainly believe in the use of makeup to feel more confident about one’s self. Whether you use it too little or too much, its your personal choice and if you like it that way “go girl, you look pretty!”
Here I’m sharing my Feel Pretty Be Confident Look, the one I feel comfortable wearing and that helped me kick my makeup insecurities and made me confident.

1. Be comfortable in your own skin – Not everyone is blessed with naturally, flawless skin. At least I’m not, I have acne prone skin. While, there are a lot of beauty products out there that can make you feel beautiful. But do you really want that? For me the best thing to do is taking proper care of my skin and making it happy. And that’s half job done. If your skin’s happy, you’ll definitely be more confident about yourself. 
How to achieve happy skin? CTM ” Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize” make it a part of your daily routine, it takes 5 minutes and you have clean and happy skin.  
Products: Proactiv 3-step System kit has worked for me. more information here
2. BB Cream Vs. Foundation – As mentioned I’m a minimal makeup person so instead of a foundation, I use a BB cream. Generally a foundation gives you a nice coverage and evens out your skin, I feel it a bit too much for myself specially in summers. Whereas a BB cream is light, blends well, even out skin, provides coverage and is an all-in-one product.
Products: Flormar BB Cream. more information here  
3. Set Powder – Dust some powder to give a finishing touch to the skin.
Products: Flormar Loose Powder. more information here
4. Brighten your eyes – Make your eyes look awake and bright. Make them pop with a liner or a mascara and a little shimmer in the inner corners of the eye.
Products: Eyeliner: Diana of London, Arabian Black Eyeliner. more information here

5. Add a pop of color – Give your cheeks some pop of color. It will instantly add color to your face and brighten it too.
Products: Luscious Cosmetics, Peach Melba. more information here
6. Finish off – Finish the look with your favorite lipstick. I love wearing lipstick and sometimes only a liner and a lipstick is all I do and love it.
Products: Luscious Cosmetics, Super Moisturizing Lipstick in Chili
                 Luscious Cosmetics, Signature Lipstick in Nude Pink
7. Be your kind of beautiful!
You’re beautiful the way you are. Don’t let others make you feel bad about yourself or your beauty choices, wear makeup the way you like it and be confident. If you like it natural go natural, just kick all those makeup insecurities, start loving yourself and feel pretty and confident about yourself. There is never “right” or “wrong” makeup it’s always “my kind of makeup”. 
Wear your “My Kind of Makeup” and be Makeup Confident!
