A buyer's guide to make-up and lip gloss

The lip gloss is an item that even the most conservative woman owns. It is available in every colour, flavour and style imaginable. Lip gloss is the essential component of make-up. As such, it is important to know about lip gloss and make-up in general. This article delves into the world of cosmetics and details out what should be known about it.

Lipstick

Lipstick and by extension lip gloss, are ranked quite highly on any woman's must-have list. The colours and styles range from clear lip gloss to organic lip gloss and are available in every shade and colour in-between. Many women seem overwhelmed by all this diversity and find themselves confused about what to use. However, lip gloss does not require any additional brain cells to figure out the semantics. Here are a few tips about lipstick. Tip 1: Choosing lipsticks Lipsticks are made from different components such as waxes, oils, emollients and pigments. So, it is important to know what you are buying so as to avoid issues like allergic reactions. Lipsticks may contain any of the following ingredients: lanolin, beeswax, cocoa butter, mineral oil, collagen, Vitamin E and even sunscreen for added protection. If you are allergic to any of these ingredients, it is recommended that you buy a different brand. One of the best brands that exists is Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush lip gloss. It is easy to apply, has a moisturising effect, has a light non-greasy feel and it tastes great in whichever flavour that you try. It is also very reasonably priced. It costs between £ 2.45 to £ 3.86, as at 23.08.11. It is available almost anywhere that you shop. Tip 2: Finding the right colour Finding the right lipstick colour is tantamount to solving an equation. Once that you get it right, everything else falls into place. For darker skin tones, choose colours like wine and plum. For lighter skin tones, try using lip colours that have brownish and pinkish undertones. Experiment with colours until you find your perfect blend.

Eye shadows

Eye shadow is another make-up essential that can make or break a woman. Always follow the cardinal rule for make-up: ' less is more'. Eye shadows enhance the eyes and brighten the face. Therefore, choosing the right colours is important. An oft favourite eye shadow is Estee Lauder Pure colour eye shadow, but there are rave reviews for the Dior eye shadow . These eye shadows are of good quality and are excellent for your eyes. Moreover, they are easy to apply and they are long-lasting.
