And I am back again, with Sonia Khatri, to discuss something fun and more exciting – Makeup <3 Yes, Sonia is sharing her favorite beauty picks for SS16. Let’s see what she has in store for us.
S O N I A ‘S M A K E U P P I C K S
I would like to begin this list with none other than one of the most key makeup product for 2016 and i.e. highlighter.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow kit in That Glow
This was one of the first highlighting kit that Anastasia Beverly Hills had launched earlier this year along with the Gleam kit. I own both and they both are beautiful but I prefer and enjoy the Glow kit more since it matches my skin tone and gives me the perfect sun kissed glow. The advantages with this product are that it adds glow to the high points of your face without making it look too strong, the kit is travel friendly and the shades that you won’t wear as a highlighter can be used either as a shimmering bronzer or as a blush and even as an eye shadow. To me, this is a makeup artist friendly highlighting kit. It is one of the best all rounder face products that I own.
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation
This foundation is oil free making it perfect for summer. It is infused with Coconut water, Alpine rose and hyaluronic acid for nourishing, hydrating, brightening, promoting elasticity and smoothing the skin to make it appear radiant and youthful. To me, this foundation is so addicting that I have not yet tried my other new foundations to review on my blog. It has definitely changed my foundation game because it is so tolerant to sensitive skin and it lasts for a good 8 hours without moving. It feels like silk on my face and one small pump of this product goes a long way till my neck. I have so far used this product on brides, myself, for shoots, in both cooler and warmer months without any issues and I am more than proud to have this on my favorites list. It is highly recommended if you still haven’t used this product, I can bet you that you won’t regret it, especially if you have sensitive skin like I do.
Nyx HD Studio Photogenic Finishing Powder
This is a great finishing powder to combat makeup meltdowns of Dubai’s summer months. It adds a demure silk touch to the skin and keeps your cream concealer intact very well. However, I will not recommend this for photo shoots, unlike to what the product says, it is not photogenic at all and will flash back on your photos since HD makeup adds blinding brightness to your face when in contact with camera and lighting. However, you can wear this on your décolletage and on your face if you are hitting the beach provided you are not planning to take selfies.
M.A.C Mineralize Skin Finish in Give Me Sun
This bronzer is the most natural looking product I have ever tried. As the issue with bronzers go, they can be either too orange or too brown, but never meeting the expectation. This bronzer oxidizes with the skin beautifully without making your face look muddy and cakey. It has the right amount of orange undertone to it with darker hue for fair to medium skin tones, and it makes a great blush for darker complexions.
Tom Ford Eye shadow Quad in Golden Mink
If you ever want to splurge at Tom Fords to buy an outstanding product that works very well to suffice for the amount of cash you have spent on a luxury product, look no further than their eye shadow quads. Tom Ford makes one of the most breathtaking eye shadow quads out there in the market. The quads have the perfect shades for your crease, outer corner, highlight and lids to take you from day to night. My personal favorite is the quad in Golden Mink because it suits most looks that I am working on as it has warm shades. The shadows are very well pigmented and they blend easily.
Nars Audacious Lipstick in Grace
The Nars Audacious lipstick line is so good that you’ll forget shopping for lipsticks from M.A.C. This particular shade called Grace is the perfect shade for summer months as it is the perfect watermelon fuchsia that pops out bright making your lips the centre of attention. If you are wearing this shade, keep your eye makeup minimal and don’t define your brows too heavily. This lipstick is richly pigmented and creamy without feathering out and the product stays put for a good 5 hours. It compliments all skin shades.
Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Rose Matter
This is another great option if you can’t pull off bold lipsticks. This shade called Rose matter by Jeffree Star Cosmetics is a perfect warm toned rosy pink nude that can compliment most looks and make you look August ready. The Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick formulas are one of the most comfortable liquid lipstick formulas that are available in the market currently and this shade in particular is supremely beautiful that will suit all skin colors.
