This is a special tiny blog in response to a query by one of my fabulous followers, Vonzi who asks for a brand of the really black liners.
First, when we use "carbon black" we tend to brag about it (if it is still news, that is). So you can just pinpoint those who say black in so many superlatives.
Second, I have seen a lot of great reviews of beauty bloggers out there who are more hands-on and more into brands (If I can, I try not to name brands here). And I believe you will be in good hands with their recommendations, you just have to sniff the real McCoys from the paid bloggers.
Third, since this blog aims to teach you how to fish and not to give you fish- I have included here a little practical tip for you.
Here it goes with a very marketing blurb intro:
Will your life never be the same without your discontinued shade of lipstick ?
Have you ever had the perfect shade of foundation in an old texture and would like to find the same color in a better formulation?
Or have you ever bought what you thought are identical shades of green eyeshadow only to find upon application a gargantuan difference (which is - the original makes you simmeringly* sexy, and the other one, makes you Shrek, the sequel)?In these instances, it helps to learn a nifty little trick used by the pros.
How to counter color match! Yes, Virginia- there is a proper way!
Since this is instructional, it is best to demonstrate with a video which i enclosed below. Sorry, there is no voice for now. I am not yet ready to cross over to audio.
- First, you smear the original color on your arm in two diagonally opposing bars. You mark that "control" with a check.
- Then, you smear the color you are considering, opposite the two bars.
- This way, you can compare the two colors better.
Easy, but powerful trick that could save you millions!
Go forth and color match!
*yes, i do invent words every now and then, if i do not find the one that i need in the dictionary.
Another tip- you do not need to spend a lot with those make up removers.
One of the best that we use are- drumroll please.....
