How to cover up pigmentation marks quick and easy

Are you one of the many women who make the mistake  and apply a concealer that is many shades lighter in order to lighten the pigmentation marks?? - Well let me break it down for you - it ain't gonna happen! All you doing is highlighting the problem. Literally! 

 There are loads of makeup theories out there how to cover up pigmentation marks but one of the easiest and quickest way to cover up the pigmentation is just to use a foundation or concealer 2 tones darker than your skin color.

Apply the foundation as you usually would  and  once the foundation is fully applied - use a foundation that is 2 shades darker than your skin color  and just dab onto the the pigmentation marks. You can also use a concealer if you prefer.

And that's all the magic - you can expect the pigmentation marks to disappear.

How to cover up your first grey hair‏

These pesky greys - is there anything more annoying in this world - well ok maybe paying paying your bills is more annoying but my first greys are defo top on my list. 

So what can you do?

Watch my YouTube video!

 Use a mascara to cover up the greys - this will immediately conceal them. I am using a brown mascara and it works like a charm.

Apply a dry shampoo to contains color and spray it on directly on to your greys.
And tadagh... Magic... grey hair nowhere to be seen. If you have need more concealing then I recommend the L'Oreal Magic Retouch Instant Root Concealer Spray or similar products on the market.

If you are looking for a more permanent solution to conceal the greys then I recommend to get highlights and lowlights done at the hairdressers. This is my currently to go hairstyle and my greys blend in seamlessly as you can see. Also highlighting your hair will also make you look younger. Bonus!

How to Make Your Skin Glow in Minutes - Express Facial

Nothing makes you feel as confident as having healthy, glowing, radiant skin. Beautiful and clear skin makes you look younger and feel healthier no matter what your age. In this video I will show you how you can achieve a glowing skin in less than 10 minutes. This is great express facial at home for the last minute events, such as dates, job interviews etc. where you don't have much time to spend on pampering your skin. 

 Exfoliator of your choice 
Lukewarm water and sponges to remove exfoliator 
Thick face face cream of you choice 
Clean face wash cloth 
Shower cap 

Apply an exfoliator of your choice to the already clean face - my favorite exfoliator at the moment is Indeed Labs Facial Powdered Exfoliator

Remove the exofliator with warm water and sponges, if you don't have any, plain face washcloth will do the trick too.

Pat dry your face gently using a face towel or paper tissues.

Apply a thick layer of face cream of your choice - I like to use very thick creams and oils such as Elisabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream, Coconut Oil or plain ol' good Vaseline for this purpose.

Hold a clean washcloth under hot running water for few minutes until the cloth is piping hot. If you don't have running hot water then just simply dampen the washcloth and and microwave it for 1 minute. Be careful not to burn yourself as the cloth might be really hot.

 Apply the hot washcloth to your face and cover your face with a shower cap. I know this is not an attractive look, but this will help look in the moisture in to your skin.

 STEP 7 
Lay back and relax for 3-5 minutes.

 STEP 8 
 Remove the washcloth and the shower cap and your skin should feel soft to touch and look super moisturized. You are welcome, you can thank me in the comments!

Best under-eye concealer and brightener you must try

When you are tired the colour drains from your face making you appear more sallow, grey with dark circles around your eyes. Here are my top five under eyes concealer that will give you instantly the wide awake look and will give you a younger and fresher appearance.

When you are tired the colour drains from your face making you appear more sallow, grey with dark circles around your eyes. Using an under eyer brightener will give you instantly a wide awake look and  a younger and fresher appearance.

 Always apply eye cream first and let it completely sink in to your skin. Follow with your foundation of your choice and the rest of your makeup and then apply the under eyes concealer as a finishing touch.

 Charlotte Tilburry - The Retoucher 
 This is my favorite under eye concealer at the moment - the coverage is excellent - it does an absolutely amazing job covering under-eye circles and just lightening up that whole area. This is god send for these days where you I don't get much sleep. Texture of the concealer is quite thick but yet smooth. It blends well and doesn't settle into the small creases near my eyes.

Gyvenchy Mister Light Instant Corrective Pen 
This concealer is thick but creamy and conceals and brightens the under eye area at the same time. Another bonus is that the pen lasts quite a long time as you only need a tiniest amount as its quite pigmented and if use to much of It can get a little cakey.

 Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Radiant Touch Highlighting Pen 
 The multi award-winning cult beauty classic loved by celebrities, supermodels and make-up artists everywhere is also one of my favorites highlighters and under eye brighteners.Many people confuse this one as concealer - which is clearly not - if you would apply it over a blemish it will only highlight the problem area. Also if you have very dark under eyes circles - you will need to use corrector and concealer first.

 NARS Radiant Cream Concealer 
It's very creamy and it doesn't accentuate my lines and it also works great as a highlighter.It dries quite fast so you have to blend the concealer in very quickly. I would suggest this concealer to anyone looking for something with high coverage that doesn't feel thick or heavy.

 Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
 if you are no tight on a budget than I highly recommend the Rimmel Wake me up Concealer. This one is almost idenitical to the NARS Radiant Concealer. This concealer covers my dark circles perfectly and really gives me wide awake look. And again if you have very dark under eyes circles - you will need to use corrector and concealer first as it won't cover these.

 I generally don't use powder as I don't like it the powdery look - it just emphasizes my lines but If your under eye area gets very greasy you should set your concealer with a light dusting of powder. I like the to use the Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder for under eyes with a Smashbox Fan brush.
