All of us are unique and beautiful in our own way. Our skin types and colors are different, our eye colors are different and our contours are different. This is why we need to know how to choose the right colors to suit our skin and eyes. Here are some simple tips for choosing colors.

Foundation and Blush

Skin tone – The first thing to do is determine your skin tone. Have a look at the color of your skin along your jawline. If it is pale, you have fair skin. If you have pale skin with a slight brown or yellow coloring, you have light skin. A medium skin tone is one where it looks like you have a light tan. Dark or tan skin is a deep brown skin tone.

Undertones – Your skin’s undertone can be warm, cool or neutral. If you hold silver and gold fabric next to your arm, you can determine your undertone. If the veins on your arm appear blue next to the silver, you have a cool undertone. If the veins appear yellow, green, or brown next to the gold, you have a warm undertone. If your veins appear blue and green, you have a neutral undertone. Your skin undertone determines the best colors for clothing and makeup.

Foundation – Ask a professional in the cosmetics store to help you find the right color foundation. You can also use online tools. Always test a foundation on your skin before buying it.

Blush – Blush gives your skin a bit of color. Use pale pinks, peaches, and plums for fair skin. Apricot or mauve is good for medium skin and light purple or purple-pink is good for darker skin.


Eye color – Determine what your eye color is: blue, hazel-brown, dark brown/ black, or green. For blue eyes, go with warm colors like orange, gold, peach, bronze, apricot, or coral. For green eyes go with pinks and purples. For hazel-brown eyes, try gray-green, orange, gold, and blue-gray. Dark colors like dark gray, navy blue, deep plum, and brown work well with dark brown eyes.

Choosing the right color for your skin can make a big difference in how your makeup appears. Use these tips to choose the best colors for you and make sure that look and feel beautiful.

Makeup is something that many women make part of their daily routine. It makes them feel good, confident, and ready for the day. Some women wear a lot of makeup while others have a minimalist approach. No matter what your preference, you will find some helpful tips here. Have a look at the top tips for your makeup routine.

Foundation – Avoid using a sponge or brush to put on foundation if you want full coverage. It is better to use your fingers to blend it properly and make sure you get a smooth and sheer finish.

Concealer – Avoid putting concealer or foundation on your eyelids. If you use it as a foundation on your eyelids, it will cause creases in your eye makeup.

Powder – If you use powder, you should apply it to the shiniest parts of your face first. For most people, it is the T-zone area and sometimes the forehead and cheeks. The rest of your face only needs a little bit of dusting.

Bronzer – Use bronzer to even out your skin tone. Make sure to apply it to your neck, face and chest and blend it well. It is always good to stand back from the mirror and check if your skin tone is even.

Blush – Blush is there to give your cheeks some extra color. The best way to apply it is to smile so you can see the apples of your cheeks. Gently brush upwards from the cheeks to the ears and back down again.

Eye Shadow – To get an even finish, you should use a matt base eye shadow to use over your whole eyelid as well as the brow bone. This will be the base for your colored eye shadow. Ideally, the base shadow should match the lightest part of your face.

Eyeliner – The thing that makes many of us feel like rock stars. To apply your eyeliner, tilt your head back a little and get close to the mirror. Start at the inside corner of your eye and work outwards to draw a solid line under your eye.

These simple makeup tips will have you looking beautiful with a smooth complexion and a hop in your step.


This blog is not just about makeup. It is also about beauty and staying healthy. The first step to feeling healthy and beautiful is to take care of your body and your skin. We all know these simple tips that we should follow, but we don’t always do it. Sometimes we just need a little reminder. So, consider this your reminder and the kick on your behind needed to get you on the right track again.

Drink lots of water – Water is your friend and your body needs it. Our bodies are made up mostly of water and we lose that water through sweating, urinating, crying, and normal body operations. It is important to replace this water to ensure the proper functioning of your body and also so your skin will remain hydrated and radiant.

Exercise – Exercise is not just for those who want to lose weight or keep weight off. It is also necessary for your overall health. Your body needs regular exercise to keep it fit and to keep your muscles and joints going. When your body is healthy and strong, you will look and feel beautiful and strong.

Don’t sleep with your makeup on – We are all guilty of this. We are too tired or too lazy to take off our makeup before bed. Ideally, we should be washing our faces twice a day – meaning once at night before bed. Sleeping with your makeup on can cause skin problems and infections. So, try to at least remove your makeup before hitting the pillow.

Moisturize – Moisturizer is important during all seasons. Your skin needs moisture to stay elastic and firm. It is vitally important to moisturize during winter to keep your skin from getting wrinkly because of dryness. Your moisturizer should also be your sun protection, so choose one that has SPF in it.

These are very simple tips that we must all follow and stick to in order to keep our skin happy and healthy.
