When it comes to splurging shopping, I am sure makeup trends must be something you can’t control your hands on. And the way luxury brands have evolved, there has been a complete revamp in the makeup industry.Makeup is no longer limited to only Kajal, lipstick and a foundation, but new names have hit the mass, names that once used to be limited to make up professionals. Contouring, Highlighting, using primers and what not- the list of ‘needful’ items at a makeup store is never ending. That’s surely fun when you are buying drugstore makeup, but horrifying when it comes to Luxury makeup brands. Premium priced products won’t let you experiment a lot to decide your set of products. So a bit of research before you hit the stores is a must so that you make a right buying decision. Here are the makeup products that you must have and the brands which you should buy them from:
Bobbi Brown is known for its natural makeup range. Its lipsticks, eye shadow, concealer, foundation: all are very natural in the sense that it will hide flaws without showing up. You will not get high-coverage, but trust me, it will blend so well with your skin, especially with Indian skin tones.
Dior has always been popular for its lip products. Try Lip Gloss first, so famous for its high color payoff and variants, it has an edge over lip glosses of other brands. If you are a person who likes to wear eye shadow often and want a good stay yet very natural everyday look, Dior’s Eye Reviver Illumination Neutral Eye Palette is another must have.
Next step after choosing right under tone for your skin, you need to choose whether you need a high coverage or a medium coverage. If you have a lot of spots on your face, you need to go for a high coverage foundation, especially Studio-Fix series. MAC has great high coverage foundations- water proof for oily skin to one for normal to dry skin. Retro matte series lipstick of MAC is one thing you must try in your lifetime. It has got amazing texture and great pigmentation.
One great, yet under rated brand, Inglot revolutionized the market with some amazing formulations. Inglot Breathable nail Enamel is one of those- a nail paint that lets water and air permeate to your nails. Your nails aren’t deprived of oxygen and remain very healthy. And guess what, this shade comes in 400 shades- now that’s some variety!
Clinique is unanimously best known for its ‘Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion’. It not only softens the skin, but also improves its texture a lot. Next on the list is-Clinique ‘High Impact Mascara Black’. This mascara stays for really long, makes your eye lashes look very visibly longer. The best part is that it doesn’t harm your eyes and comes out easily when intended to remove.
‘Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Powder Bronzer’ is one product all women swear by! Available in four different colors, it gives so natural glow to your skin without giving even a subtle hint that you are wearing a bronzer. It is a must try product by Estee Lauder. Next product is Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick’. If you are not very fond of matte lipsticks, go for this! It has got this amazing Time-Release Moisture Complex that keeps lips hydrated and wait, it is highly pigmented too. Choose from 30 beautiful shades and you won’t go disappointed.
Yet on expansion in India, Kiko has very influential products you might not find in other brands. Stick eye shadow from Kiko is a great product that’s highly water resistant and long lasting. The eye shadows are also very well pigmented. The blushes from Kiko are also worth a try. Having quite a number of options to choose from, you will definitely buy it again.
Yves Saint Laurent
This is one brand to pick ‘eyeliner’ from. YSL’s ‘Eyeliner Moiré Liquid Eyeliner’s is great liquid eyeliner. It doesn’t smudge, has very fine applicator. It defines such precise line when applied and doesn’t move even a bit unless you remove it.
Your Luxury makeup box is sure to rock with these combinations. Luxury makeup products once bought- provided you are buying the right product, are worth every penny!
