This ointment is simply MAGIC. When people hear of this product, the first thing that comes into their minds is lip balm. Well yes, it’s that too. But it’s also for treating abscesses and boils, bruises and burns, carbuncles and chafings, cuts and cysts, dry and cracked skin on hands and feet, gravel rash and heat rash, insect stings and mosquito bites, open wounds and pimples, scalds and sunburn, swelling associated with injury, splinters and thorns, tinea and whitlow, nappy rash and cracked nipples. It’s very very convenient!
It’s made from fermented papaya and petroleum jelly. It’s a plus that you know what you put on your lips. All natural and organic products.
It doesn’t offer color or tint. I recommend this before applying any lip coloring product on. Especially Matte Lipsticks because they have the least moisturizing content. Also, only one application of this magical ointment on your lips and it will just be enough to last the whole day. Even if you eat and drink a lot.
Good luck and try this product! You won’t regret it!
Most of the teens I know, including myself, suffer from the same problem. So don’t worry because it’s perfectly normal. :) I suggest you refer to this post of mine for your daily skin care routine. As for the best make up base, refer to these tips:
A regular moisturizer is not an option if your skin is oily. So how can you protect your skin you ask? Use a matte finish sunblock. This will give you a matte base that will prevent your make up from sliding off. Matte sunblocks can be purchased from your local department stores.
Make Up primer IS KEY. Before putting on your foundation, concealer or BB cream, apply a good make up primer first. Apply as much as you need. Using this will keep your make up last the whole day.
If you have oily skin, your eyelids are probably about 50% oilier than the rest of the areas of your face. That explains why your eyeshadow won’t last for a long period of time. Using an Eyelid primer before applying any eyeshadow or eyeliner will help it last longer and make the colors more vivid.

Cream Concealers are your best bet for a long lasting cover up. Cream concealers have a dryer formula than liquid ones so it’s best for oily skin.
Translucent powder is also an important note. Apply this over your base to seal in all the products you’ve applied. Since it’s translucent, it’s also the most natural way to matte your face.
If your face feels oily during the day, don’t just slap on powder because this will make your face super cakey. Be sure to use oil blotting sheets first and then freely apply your powder again.
I hope these tips will help! :)

There are times when I get tired of the white, porcelain skinned make up looks and I just love that a bronzer and a gold eyeshadow can make so much difference
If you want to learn about this look, keep reading!
Apply a base that matches your skin tone. Don’t go any shade lighter. Use this as well to cover your imperfections.
Seal your base with the use of a translucent powder.
Fill in the original shape of your brows.
For the eyes, you’ll be needing: Bronze eyeshadow, Gold eyeshadow and White eyeshadow.
Use this as your guide for the shade:
Then, follow this pattern:
I know the guide I made is a mess, but once you’ve blend everything out and fade the harsh edges, it will look polished.
Contour your cheekbones and nose to give your face dimensions.
Line your upper lash line and waterline with a black pencil liner. On the outer corner of your eyes, create a cat eye effect.
Instead of using a pink toned blush, use a bronzer on the apples of your cheeks and sweep upwards up to the temples. Fade it out evenly for a natural look.
Use a nude shade for your lips. But I personally think that orange lips also goes well with this look.
See? Have fun with this look!
I know it’s way past summer but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy Mr. Sunshine! Putting on a lot of make up isn’t an option in these kinds of events. At most times, less is more.
Don’t forget to apply at least 2 layers of Sunblock with an SPF of 15 or more. Never go below SPF 15 because it won’t provide enough sun protection for your skin.
Instead of using a thick foundation, use a tinted moisturizer instead because it contains moisturizing agents that will keep your face hydrated the whole day.
I used ELF’s Eyebrow Kit because I know it won’t let me down. (Rexona Haha!) But seriously though, it lasted the whole day as I suspected.
Tight line your eyes with a Black pencil Eyeliner. To prevent the sun from melting your eyeliner, smudge it out with a fluffy brush. Just keep sweeping back and fourth on the line you’ve created to give it a more subtle finish.
Use a tinted lip balm for that natural yet radiant look. Tinted lip balms give your lips that extra protection because most of them contain SPF
