From smelling fantastic to taking a few makeup risks to help you step out of your comfort zone and look phenomenal, here are my fave beauty products for the month of February. Go on, fall in love with yourself!
1. Makeup Revolution Ultra Cream Contour Palette
Beauty junkie or not, it’s about time you got on board with contouring because it’s here to stay. We don’t need to tell twice just how BIG a rage contouring has been in the world of makeup. If you thought it’s a super complicated technique, too complex for anyone who isn’t a makeup artist or for someone who doesn’t use too much of it, you may be wrong. There’s no need to be intimidated by it, you can try a light contour too, which is super easy to do.
With this awesome contour palette by Makeup Revolution, you can dabble in light contouring to ultra chiseled and fab. What we like about it is that that all the 8 shades are super creamy and pigmented, not chalky like how many powders can be. They work well for different skin tones and even contain 2 shades (the yellow and peach ones) that are great for concealing undereye circles. With 3 different shades of contouring colour and 3 different shades of highlighter, with varying amounts of shimmer, you can pick the right ones for your skin colour and the type of look you’re going for. Plus, it is definitely less pricier than any other contouring palettes out there.
Give your regular pinks and reds a miss and tap into your sultry side by going darker. A deep shade of wine screams sensual romance, perfect for the theme of the month. Every girl needs a few darker shades of wines, plums and berries. We love this Chambor lipstick for it’s rich pigment as well as how smoothly it glides on; plus it’s got a moisturizing center to keep your lips soft and supple. If you hate how some lipsticks dry out your lips and lead to chapping, then this moisturizing lippie is definitely a must-try.
Price: Rs 745. Buy at any Chambor counter across your city.
3. The Body Shop Strawberry Body Polish
Luxuriously long showers are the best way to relax and pamper yourself after a long day, and getting smoother skin while you’re at it is a bonus. We love this gentle body scrub to remove dead skin while moisturizing and brightening your skin. It contains honey, which is a nourishing moisturizer, and strawberry juice, which is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants to nourish skin, as well as salicylic acid to unclog pores and prevent spots. This scrub is gentle enough to use daily for soft, supple skin. Plus, it smells absolutely delish!
You need a sensual fragrance to help you feel fantastic, no matter what. This body mist is great for daily use for a fresh touch with a twist of sexy. With a combination of cherry blossom and peach, it’s refreshing while being subtly sensual and not too overpowering. Perfect for casting a love spell, right?!
We’re totally in love with new Elements range from Wella for being completely free of harmful sulfates and parabens and being super gentle and nourishing. Pamper your strands with this super creamy hydrating mask to restore and repair your locks. Swap your regular conditioner and mask for this chemical-free, intensively hydrating one to reverse dryness and damage for healthy, dreamy, soft hair.
