Easy Nose Contouring Step by Step Tutorial

Make Your Nose Look Smaller Thinner slimmer step by step Contouring tutorial pictorial liz breygel blogger january girl

I was never a fan of nose contouring, maybe because I never could reach a beautiful subtle result. My nose was always looking like it was dirty or something, but not like it was professionally contoured. and highlighted. However recently I've invented a very easy and fun way to contour my nose and I was so excited to share it with you. Basically, you can use this method to highlight and contour any part of your face, the only thing you will need is to take some time and prepare the best stencil that will fit to the shape of your face.

Buff`d Mineral Cosmetics / Review & Swatches liz breyegl janaury girl makeup blogger

I always loved mineral cosmetics and most of the famous makeup artists say that it looks better on the skin and it is more easy to work with it. So when these samples of the Buff`d Mineral Cosmetics* have arrived I was super excited to test them out. And I need to admit that I`m impressed with the quality of Buff`d makeup. 

In my package I received 7 little plastic bags with 4 different products - 2 eye shadows, 2 blushes, 2 powder foundations and illuminating dust. Here are the names and the links to each of the product: 

Gracious Satin Pearl Eye Shadow
Mousy Satin Pearl Eye Shadow
Chilled Pearl Blush
Haunt Velvet Matte Blush
Candlelight Illuminating Dust
Medium Light Mineral Foundation  in Neutral, Light Formulation
Medium Light Mineral Foundation in Beige, Original Formulation

The left swatch is the foundation in Neutral Light Shade and Light formulation, for those who prefer a light coverage and great oil absorption. The texture of this foundation is very light and the colour perfectly suits my complexion - it has no dominant yellow or pink undertones. There is enough product in the sample pack to wear this foundation once or even twice.

The right swatch is the Buff`d Foundation in Beige Shade and Original formulation. I found the texture a bit more stout, than in the light formulation. The shade is described as peachy beige with the slightest yellow undertones.

I loved this blushes so much! Their colors are perfect for the late autumn and winter time. The left swatch is Chilled blush with satin pearl finish. The color is described as cool pink - like your cheeks when you come out at the cold weather. It is very pretty and looks natural, so it will fit any skin color.

The right swatch is blush called Haunt and it has a matte velvet finish. The color is described as dusty plum pink, but I think it has a slightly terracotta shade in it. I need to confess that I`m very tempted to try both blushes as eye shadows as well :)

Both Buff`d eye shadows that I received have satin pearl finish and it is very easy to work with them. But I would recommend to use a good eye shadow primer to make them look even more pigmented and long - lasting. Gracious is a pretty pastel lavender shade with a very soft shimmer, and the mousy is cool medium brown with silver and golden shimmer. This shade reminds me of the Christmas and I even don`t know why! 

Illuminating Dust

And the last, but definitely not least product we are going to talk about is the Buff`d Illuminating dust in color Candlelight. The texture of this illuminator is the same as an eye shadow, but the it looks more sheer on the skin and gives a beautiful radiant glow. 

I need to say that I`m very impressed with the Buff'd Cosmetics' color ranges - you can literary find any possible color of eye shadow you need and any possible foundation shade. But the biggest advantage of Buff'd Cosmetics are ingredients  that they to create their makeup products. Buff'd Mineral Cosmetics are made with the natural minerals and pigments, oils and waxes, which are all free from toxins and hypoallergenic to your skin. Also all of their products have been formulated without being tested on animals.
