If you're looking to test out a new daring style choice, then consider a look with a bold, black lipstick. Black lipstick can seem intimidating at first, but if you have the right idea in mind, it can pull together your entire makeup look.
Here are eight looks you can try that feature black lipstick
Black liner and lips. This first look is very natural and can be worn any day of the week. It features bold black eyeliner,  some natural mascara, and a bold black lip. This look leaves eyeshadow to a minimum, making your lips stand out even more.

Red in the center. You can mix and match different colors when it comes to your black lipstick, and this look combines red and black with a sharp eyeliner and nude eyeshadow. Cover your lips in black lipstick, and then add a little bit of red to the center to achieve this look.

Fire lips. Inspired by a popular snack, these fire lips are sure to turn heads. To create this look, cover your lips and black lipstick and then draw flames on top. Are you daring enough to pull this look off?

Wearing black lipstick can be intimidating, and it's important to make sure that you get a quality lipstick or the color may not come out very well. When you go to apply your black lipstick, start from the middle and then continue outwards. Once you have applied the first coat, blot your lips with a tissue and apply another coat afterwards. This method will give you a perfect lipstick look that will last for hours.

The Benefits of Tomatoes
The Benefits of Tomatoes
Hey Beauty’s It’s been a long week and I haven’t been on much, missed wellness Wednesday but I never let the week past without a natural skincare edition. 😉 Tomatoes 🍅 Tomatoes are the major dietary source of the antioxidant lycopene, which has been linked to many health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. Lycopene is an especially strong antioxidant, so it can help your overall health along with the appearance of your skin. Antioxidants help reverse signs of aging, which means plumper skin and reduced fine lines. 😁 They are also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate, and vitamin K. Natural Face Masks to try at home: I have combination skin that tends to be on the oily side. I would suggest a patch test for sensitive skin. 🧚‍♀️Instantly Brighter Skin 1/2 Ripe Tomato 🍅 1 Tbsp Honey 🍯 Blend tomato 🍅 till it’s a smooth purée, stir in honey and mix well. I’m the biggest fan of honey 🍯 and adding tomato just made this mask more appealing. So I tried it! 😃 Because of the honey, it’s a very sticky mask but full of antioxidants. Honeys a natural humectant (locks moisture in skin cells), it’s antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties protect skin from bacteria and germs 🦠 🧚‍♀️ Refreshing Mask 1/2 Ripe Tomato 🍅 1/4 Cucumber 🥒 Peel cucumber and blend with Tomato 🍅 apply in circular motion and wait 15 minutes. Rinse off. Both cucumber and tomato are natural astringents which help tighten large pores. Cucumber is composed of 95% water and will hydrate oily skin, preventing further oiliness as well as moisturising dry skin back to its previous smoothness. It’s the cucumber that soothes the skin and can fade blemishes. Hope you have a great Friday! And let me know if you like my natural series by liking this post. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 There’s a natural Tomato 🍅 Paper Mask by Yes To, it’s available on ASOS. The Yes To Tomato Mask 🍅 is made to fight blemishes. It’s 95% natural, paraben free and cruelty free. It’s suitable for combination skin so if you want to purchase something try this, I prefer my natural Masks 😉 it saves me $$$ to spend on cleanser, my new fav product for now. 🙋🏽‍♀️ Cheers 🥂 Jade
THIS DERMATOLOGISTS FAVORITE NEW CLEANSER
THIS DERMATOLOGISTS FAVORITE NEW CLEANSER
Cleansers are an essential step in everyone’s skincare routine, but it can be difficult to find the right one for your skin. The new Aveeno Calm + Restore nourishing oat cleanser has been my new go-to daily cleanser and I love it. ❤️🙌 Aveeno has always been a brand to create formulations that target dry and sensitive skin and this cleanser is no different. This cleanser is great for people all skin types but would likely benefit dry or combination skin most. The incorporated oat complex helps restore build the skin’s moisture barrier and soothe itchy skin. There is no stripping effect with this cleanser, which is something too always look for with your cleanser. Other pros about this product are its fragrance free (limiting any irritant reactions) as well as great pricing. On amazon, you can find a bottle for under $10.‼️‼️ TRUTH: If you are trying to fight acne or blackheads I recommend against this cleanser and try finding something with salicylic acid. Have you tried the new Aveeno cleanser? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! ⤵️
Kylie x Grinch - Worth the Hype?
Kylie x Grinch - Worth the Hype?
Review time!!! I just received the entire Kylie Cosmetics Grinch Collection in the mail this week & I want to break down each product and tell you what I loved and didn’t love. Palette: I’m not one that reaches for tons of colour usually but all the greens in this palette are gorgeous! There’s a mix of matte and shimmer shades, and as usual, the shadows blend like a dream! The good thing about this palette is that there are still some neutral shades rather than just greens. I definitely appreciate the mixture of shades. Shadow Sticks: The Kylie shadow sticks are probably one of my favourite products they have ever released. They are so extremely pigmented, and so easy to apply. They’re basically fool proof, and they set as a shadow. If you haven’t tried them out, I highly suggest you do! In this collection we have a super pretty light shimmery green, light gold, and two rosy toned shadow sticks. Shimmer Eye Glazes: This product is insane. They are a super intensely pigmented eyeshadow that leaves the lids looking wet & dripping in glitter! One swipe of these on the lid is literally all you need for that intense shimmer. If you’re someone who loves super shimmery eyeshadow, I recommend giving the Kylie Cosmetics Shimmer Eye Glazes a try. This collection came with 2 shades: a minty turquoise green and a gold - & I’m obsessed and so happy to be adding these to my collection!! Olive Kyliner: My go to liquid liner is the black Kyliner, so i wasn’t surprised when i loved the easy application and long wearing quality of this olive Kyliner! The liner applies a lighter olive green and dries down to a deeper olive shade. It’s definitely not something I’d reach for everyday, although it’s definitely cute for the holidays or even for a pop of colour to a neutral eye! Blush: I am a huge fan of the Kylie Cosmetics Blushes as opposed to the other blushes I’ve tried from the brand this one had some shimmer in it! It’s quite similar to the NARS “orgasm” blush but with a stronger pink hue. I love the shimmer in it, it adds a pretty glow to the cheeks, perfect for the holidays.. or any day really :P Highlight: Def on theme, but probably my least favourite product in of the collection :( Don’t get me wrong, it’s super blinding and glowy. Although, once I applied to my face it showed off as very green. Personally I don’t want a green glow on my face! But hey, if that’s your vibe that’s cool! Definitely not a highlight I’d reach for everyday. Lip Kit: Obsessed. This red is EVERYTHING! This Lip Kit is one of the best reds I have ever tried. It has a matte finish and is extremely long wearing. I know it’s sold out but a similar shade would be “BOSS” by Kylie. Lipsticks: These shades are gorg for the holidays and I love the shade range! Long wearing & comfortable on the lips. High Glosses: Kylies high glosses are high shine, but very sticky! So if you’re not a fan of sticky glosses you won’t love these. These shades are perf for the holidays and everyday!
Tips from a dermatologist on sunscreen ☀️
Tips from a dermatologist on sunscreen ☀️
Let’s talk about sunscreen ☀️ What’s a good sunscreen to wear? One that is: * Broad-spectrum protection (protects against UVA and UVB rays) * SPF 30 or higher * Water resistant This will help protect your skin from early skin aging, sunburn, and skin cancer. What is the difference between chemical and physical sunscreens? Chemical sunscreens work like a sponge, absorbing the sun’s rays. They contain one or more of the following ingredients: oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, and octinoxate. These are often easier to rub into the skin without a white cast. Physical sunscreens (aka mineral sunscreens) act like a shield, sitting on the surface of your skin and deflecting the sun’s rays. These can come on white. They have the active ingredients zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide Reapply every 2 hours when outside in the sun ☀️ Some of my favorites: Tinted: Cerave tinted, la roche posay tinted, alastin CeraVe - Face Sheer Tint Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30 LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid SPF 50 ALASTIN SKINCARE - HydraTint Pro Mineral Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 36 Not tinted: colorescience, drunk elephant colorescience - Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50 Sunscreen DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 What’s your favorite sunscreen?
What is Rosacea?
What is Rosacea?
Hey Beauty’s 🙋🏽‍♀️ I wanted to highlight Rosacea which affects 16 million Americans and 415 million people around the World 🌎 Mayo Clinic say, it’s a common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels in your face. It may also produce small, red, pus-filled bumps. These signs and symptoms may flare up for weeks to months and then go away for a while. Rosacea can be mistaken for acne, other skin problems or natural ruddiness. Health line say, the cause of rosacea is still unknown, and there is no cure although Mayo Clinic list a number of reasons (highlighted in my infographic) that cause the condition. 🧐 Topical Treatment: An article in Australian Prescriber say, treatment starts with general measures which include gentle skin cleansing, photoprotection and avoidance of exacerbating factors such as changes in temperature, ultraviolet light, stress, alcohol and some foods. Specific topical treatments include: 🧚‍♀️ Metronidazole, Rozex Metronidazol Gel is a topical antibiotic gel for treatment of rosacea 🧚‍♀️ Azelaic acid, a superstar ingredient with antibacterial, skin cell regulating, anti inflammatory and is especially useful for acne-prone or rosacea-prone skin types (in concentration 10% and 🆙 The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% has the right strength of Azelaic acid. 😄 🧚‍♀️ Laser therapy may also be beneficial 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 If you have any questions just leave me a comment below. Have a wonderful day! Jade 😃
