Hello IMBBians,

Nivea had recently launched the Urban Skin Detox range to combat the issues with urban environment. I picked up the mask and night cream from the range. Today’s review is all about Nivea Essentials Urban Skin Detox +48H Moisture Boost Night Gel Cream. Read on to know more.

Price and Quantity:
$12.50 for 50ml

Product Description:
NIVEA Daily Essentials Urban Skin Detox +48H Moisture Boost Night Gel Cream pampers your skin overnight leaving it looking healthy, radiant and smooth the next morning. Providing skin with 48h moisture, this overnight detox night cream comes with bio green tea extract, anti-oxidant and hyaluronic acid. On top of the lightweight formula, NIVEA’s overnight detox moisturizer also invigorates your senses with a refreshing scent.


My Experience with Nivea Daily Essentials Urban Skin Detox +48H Moisture Boost Night Gel Cream:

The product comes in a blue green cardboard box. There is a lot of information on the box. The tub containing the product sits inside the box. The cream comes in a wide mouthed bright green tub with a blue screw cap similar to the outside package. There is a seal which ensures purity. The brand name is engraved on the cap of the tub but other than the name, there is no information available on the tub. Since it is a tub package, it can be a little unhygienic and I use it immediately after my face wash as my hands are still clean. The product is sleek and the small package makes it travel-friendly.

The gel cream is green in color and has a gel creme like consistency. It is very lightweight. The product smells very fresh but is mild. The texture of the cream feels like Aloe! The product when applied melts away like water and gets absorbed very well. Even though it doesn’t leave a greasy residue, it leaves a wet like look which gets absorbed in 15-20 seconds. Once completely absorbed, the skin looks matte and shine-free.

The product makes the skin very soft and supple. It doesn’t cause any irritation and is suitable for all skin types. The product doesn’t cause any breakouts either. The product does add a freshness and radiance to the skin. The skin feels plump with the moisture from the cream. It is non-sticky and you can hardly feel it on skin.

Even though the product adds moisture on the skin and considering that it is a night cream, I expected that the product would provide an intense moisturization. However, the cream dries off on my skin within 2-3 hours and I do feel a little dry. So, the first question that arises is that whether the cream is suitable only for normal-oily skin or is it a summer cream? The product is not nourishing enough for the dry weather and dry skin. It does cause dry flakes within a few hours due to the lack of moisture. I have been following up with a face oil after the application to increase the moisture effect. The product does tone the skin and I have noticed some changes in my skin tone. But, the claim of 48h moisture fails for me! So summing up

Pros of Nivea Daily Essentials Urban Skin Detox +48H Moisture Boost Night Gel Cream:
  • Makes skin soft and smooth.
  • Adds radiance to the skin.
  • Tones the skin and makes the skin look healthy.
  • Travel-friendly.
  • Non-sticky and gets absorbed fast.
  • Doesn’t cause any irritation or breakouts.
Cons of Nivea Daily Essentials Urban Skin Detox +48H Moisture Boost Night Gel Cream:
  • Not nourishing enough.
  • Causes dryness with 2-3 hours.

IMBB Rating: 3/5
Would I Recommend or Repurchase Nivea Daily Essentials Urban Skin Detox +48H Moisture Boost Night Gel Cream?
If you have normal skin, you can give it a try. If not, try it only in summers!

I have tried Ouai Hair Oil in the past and I was in love with it and wanted to try “Rose” variant as well. So, let’s get on to the review to know whether it is as good as the Ouai Hair Oil or not.

Product Description:
A multi-tasking oil for hair and body that’s perfect for those on the go.

Key benefits:
- Hydrates dry skin and hair while locking in moisture
. This luxurious, rose hair and body oil is a silicone-free fusion of nutrient-rich oils from all over the world. It’s fast-absorbing and illuminates the hair and skin as it restores moisture and diminishes the appearance of damage. It’s also fragranced with notes of rose, bergamot, lychee, cedar-wood, and white musk.
$32 for 98 ml.

My Experience with Ouai Rose Hair and Body Oil:

Ouai Rose Hair Oil comes housed in a plastic bottle which contains 98.9 ml of product. The dispense mechanism is a pump system. The name of the brand and product is printed on the bottle itself.

After using Ouai Hair Oil and Ouai Rose Hair and Body Oil, I cannot see much of a difference except that the rose variant has a scent to it. Both perform the same way. Rose hair and body oil has a slightly runny consistency than the regular Ouai hair oil, but because of its runny consistency, it spreads easily and doesn’t leave any residue behind.

The rose hair and body oil can be used on hair and body both. On hair, it is supposed to be applied on ¾th length of the hair. Ouai rose oil adds shine and makes it really easy to comb through. Even on the body, it adds shine and offers hydration to the skin.

The Ouai rose oil has a really nice rose scent which stays throughout the day. Honestly, as I mentioned above, I don’t see much of a difference. I would opt for the rose oil from both the variants since you get almost double quantity for almost the same amount. I would definitely be purchasing this product after finishing off this current bottle.

Pros of Ouai Rose Hair and Body Oil:
  • Only a little quantity is needed each time.
  • Adds shine to hair and body.
  • Makes it easy to comb through hair.
  • Spreads easily.
  • Adds hydration to skin.
  • Lovely scent that lasts longer.
Cons of Ouai Rose Hair and Body Oil:
  • None.

Would I Repurchase Ouai Rose Hair and Body Oil?

Hey gorgeous gals,

I did promise you umpteen lipstick reviews and so, here it goes! Today’s review is on a lipstick from the luxe brand “Burberry.” It is one of their iconic shades and because it’s so iconic – they have the shade available across their different formulas. Rati reviewed this shade in the “Lip Cover” formula, while Neetu reviewed the shade in Burberry’s “Full Kisses” formula. I will be reviewing the same shade in their “Lip Velvet” range! This leaves the shade in Burberry’s Liquid Lip velvet range up for grabs! Any takers?? ☺

I understand why brands do this – you may love a shade but not like a particular formula. When brands make the shade in various formulas, it allows you to pick the shade in the formula you want, but it can be super bumming if as a customer you did not know that the shade is available in various formulas. You may just ask for the shade and end up getting it in a texture which doesn’t really work for you. Anyway. Let us look at the glass half empty!

Product Description:
A comfortable, non-drying, soft-matte lipstick with a lasting, velvety finish. This creamy lipstick locks in rich pigments, glides on effortlessly, and delivers a soft-matte finish in one stroke. Lips are left comfortable with an ultrasoft, refreshingly non-drying texture that’s long lasting. It is formulated without sulfates, phthalates. This product is free of lanolin.
USD $35 for 3.4 gm.

Neopentyl Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Polyethylene, Phenyl Trimethicone, Cera Microcristallina (Microcrystalline Wax), Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Hydrogenated Poly (C6-14 Olefin), Mica, Trimethylolpropane Triisostearate, Polybutene, Diphenylsiloxy Phenyl Trimethicone, Dicalcium Phosphate, Ptfe, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Diisostearyl Malate, Cetyl Dimethicone, Dimethicone/Phenyl Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Propylene Carbonate, Phytosteryl/Octyldodecyl Lauroyl Glutamate, Dimethicone, Propylparaben, Fragrance, Triisostearin, Hydrogenated Cottonseed Oil, Hydrogenated Palm Kernel Glycerides, Alpha Isomethyl Ionone, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Squalane, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Wax, Laureth-4, Hydrogenated Palm Glycerides, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Benzyl Benzoate, Hydroxycitronellal, Phytosteryl Isostearate, Tin Oxide, [+/- (May Contain): Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499 (Iron Oxides), Ci 15985 (Yellow 6 Lake), Ci 15850 (Red 6, Red 7 Lake), Ci 45410 (Red 28 Lake), Ci 42090 (Blue 1 Lake), Ci 77891 (Titanium Dioxide)].

My Experience with Burberry Lip Velvet Lipstick 437 Oxblood:

Packaging:  Burberry lipstick packaging consists of a square grey tube with the Burberry trademark trench design on it – extremely difficult to photograph – it’s so dark. The lipstick case has a magnetic closure, so the lipstick will not open in your bag accidentally. The shade name and number is written on the bottom – very difficult to read, though. There is no colour indicator. I love the fact that it does not attract any fingerprints. The lipstick bullet has the same trench design on it, which is quite appealing and drives home the feel of a luxe product. Yes, nowadays drugstore brands also have imprints on their bullets – and yet – this still looks more luxe!

Shade:  The shade, Oxblood, has been described by the brand as a deep burgundy color. The description is more apt than the shade name actually. For clarity, “Burgundy” is a region in France known for their excellent red wines, named after the region. The colour of this lipstick is the shade “Burgundy.” So, it is a deep red with hints of plum in it and a satin finish. It doesn’t really look like an oxblood shade. Oxblood to me would have been the deep maroon red which is generally sported by Deepika Padukone. This shade is a tad more complex due to the hint of plum in it. Being a deep shade, it isn’t something you slap on and walk out of the door. It needs attention and conversely – gets you attention. It should work for all skin tones.

Texture: I have wanted to try the Burberry Lip Velvet range since ages – this is Burberry’s matte collection. However, upon application, to me, it seems more semi-matte than a full-on matte. The formula is extremely lightweight and glides smoothly. Even if you layer, it doesn’t feel cakey or heavy. The product adheres wells to the lips. Once applied, it doesn’t slip around. The satin smoothness does not get drying over time. There is no feeling that the product is clingy. It keeps the lips comfortable. It is not kiss-proof but there is very minimal transference.

Pigmentation: Pigmentation is good but not fully opaque in a single swipe – you need to build it over a couple of strokes. The good thing is that the shade applies with an even distribution of pigment. When a shade is this deep – there can be issues with it applying patchy – but this is not the case with Burberry’s Lip Velvet in Oxblood.

Lasting Power: The lipstick gives you about 7-7.5 hours of wear, post which it can start thinning out, especially from the middle portion of my lower lip. It does leave a bit of a stain but it isn’t something which would give appearance of the actual colour still being there. As the lipstick start to wear off, it does so evenly, without getting or looking patchy.

Fragrance: There is a faint fragrance. It is pleasant to the nose. I did not feel it while application, but only when I put my nose to it!

To sum this up for you:

Pros of Burberry Lip Velvet Lipstick 437 Oxblood:
  • A bold and beautiful color.
  • Lightweight texture.
  • Good pigmentation.
  • Very comfortable to wear – no feeling of dryness or clinginess.
  • Easy to apply and get clean lines.
  • Applies smoothly and evenly, slides on like butter.
  • No feathering or bleeding.
  • Luxe packaging.
  • Good wear time.
  • Free from sulfates and phthalates.
Cons of Burberry Lip Velvet Lipstick 437 Oxblood:
  • Nothing at all.

IMBB Rating:

The brand promised “a comfortable, non-drying, soft-matte lipstick with a lasting, velvety finish,” and delivered on it. I like it when the brands keep it real and not come up with absurd claims or make way more promises than a product can hope to deliver. I liked the formula, especially considering how comfortable the matte product is.
Do I Recommend Burberry Lip Velvet Lipstick 437 Oxblood?
Yes. However, is it a product you NEED in your life – not really! It is a definite splurge!

Hello IMBBians,

I recently picked up transformer drops from Catrice. I picked up the ‘Darkening’ and ‘Lightening’ drops as they make modification of foundations easier. Today’s review is all about the ‘Lightening’ variant. Read on to know more.

Price and Quantity: $5 for 15 ml
Product Description:
Individual Transformation. Make-up can be individually aligned with the needs of the skin thanks to the highly pigmented, liquid texture: Lightening Drops lighten the texture of foundation while the Darkening Drops make it darker. The Transformer Drops provide the possibility of personalizing any CATRICE foundation.
Beauty Tip: The drops can also be used for highlighting and contouring. For especially natural-looking results, mix to create a shade that matches the skin tone. Liquid textures like the Transformer Drops should only be applied on top of liquid make-up – if you prefer powder, it should be applied after the liquid or creamy textures.

Aqua (Water), Isododecane, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Cetyl Peg/ppg-10/1 Dimethicone, Hydrogenated Tetradecenyl/methylpentadecene, Mica, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, Isononyl Isononanoate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Hexyl Laurate, Sodium Chloride, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Ethylhexylglycerin, Caprylyl Glycol, 1,2-hexanediol, Sodium Phytate, Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Ci 77491, Ci 77492 (Iron Oxides), Ci 77891 (Titanium Dioxide).

My Experience with Catrice Prime and Fine Make Up Transformer Drops Lightening:

The drops come in a tube packaging. The product is tamper sealed at the cap. The color of the tube is same as the shade of the drops in it. The black screw cap is tight enough and there can be no leakage. The tube is made of plastic but it is not transparent and you cannot see the remaining liquid in it. The nozzle helps in easy dispense of the drops. There is a little information on the back of the tube. The tube being small is travel-friendly.

The lightening drops are very pale and very bright. It is suitable for pale skin. The shade is a little on the yellowish side. The product has a semi-thick consistency. It is very creamy and has a soft consistency. The smell is very weird and off-putting. The drops are very easy to mix and for Indian skin tones just a few drops are more than enough to lighten the foundation.

The product does make the foundation thicker and you need to use an oil or toner to thin down the foundation. The drops are very pale, and even though it can be used alone, it is very bright for me. I usually do not use the lightening drops for this purpose. The product is easy to blend and doesn’t cause any cakey effect.

One of the things I have noticed is if you use more than 2 drops with the foundation this product reduces the quality of the foundation. It drastically changes the wear of the foundation as it is a mix. However, I usually use a drop as my skin tone doesn’t change drastically in winter. The product has some yellow undertones and it might not be suitable for everyone.

The product doesn’t cause any dryness but it clings to the dryness of the skin. So, you need to exfoliate the skin well. Comparatively, I like the ‘Darkening’ drops over these lightening ones. Since it is inexpensive, it was worth a try.

So, summing up:

Pros of Catrice Prime and Fine Make Up Transformer Drops Lightening:

• Travel-friendly.
• Affordable.
• Lightens the foundation.
• Easy to blend.
• Doesn’t cause a cakey effect.
• Soft consistency.
• Easy to mix.
• Works well with all kinds of foundation.

Cons of Catrice Prime and Fine Make Up Transformer Drops Lightening:

• Reduces the wear time of the foundation.
• Very pale and cannot be used alone.
• Clings to dry patches.

IMBB Rating: 3.5/5
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Catrice Prime and Fine Make Up Transformer Drops Lightening?
Yes to both!

I am always very excited to try different foundations. The only foundation I didn’t get my hands on was creamy foundation. So this time I picked something different from one of my favourite brands these days – Kiko Milano. I had picked this ‘Creamy Matte Foundation’ because of its unique packaging and texture. So, let’s see how this product fared.

Price: $ 22 for 25 ml
Product Description:
• Creamy matte foundation.
• The soft and ultra-sensory texture ensures a luminous matte finish and silky soft skin. Works into skin easily and perfectly hugs the contours of the face.
• The product’s lightness on the skin provides a feeling of comfort that envelops the face, leaving it as smooth as silk.
• Transform the skin in one simple step: skin is radiant, the face glowing and the complexion perfectly refined. Imperfections are visibly minimised.
• Its perfect medium-full coverage is buildable, for porcelain-like skin that lasts.
• Suitable for all skin types.
• Miniature pro foundation brush included. Its synthetic fibres and diagonal tip guarantee easy, precise application.
• Available in 8 shades.

Aqua (Water /eau), Dimethicone, Talc, Lauryl Peg-9 Polydimethylsiloxyethyl Dimethicone, Dimethicone/vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Sodium Chloride, Phenoxyethanol, Acrylates/dimethicone Copolymer, Dimethicone/peg-10/15 Crosspolymer, Hydrogen Dimethicone, Benzoic Acid, Aluminum Hydroxide, Methicone, Dehydroacetic Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Sodium Citrate, Tocopherol. +/- (May Contain): Ci 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), Ci 77492 – Ci 77491 – Ci 77499 (Iron Oxides).

This creamy foundation comes in a glass packaging in the form of a heavy jar. It has a blue lid which mentions the brand name. The blue outer box mentions all the details of the product, like shade name, ingredients, quantity and price. The blue lid prevents any spillage of the product. The packaging is hygienic because one doesn’t need to dip fingers inside it as there is a small kabuki brush provided inside the box. The packaging isn’t travel-friendly because of the weight and glass.
The consistency of the product is between a liquid foundation and a mousse. It is quite thick and not at all runny. Only a small amount is required for the whole face. I prefer to apply it with the brush provided with the product. However, the brush is not enough to get the desired finish; a damp Beauty Blender is must to get the natural finish.

My Experience with Kiko Creamy Matte Foundation:

The packaging of this foundation is tiny and adorable, but one needs to keep it safe inside the box as the tub is made of glass. I have combination/oily skin and this foundation is working perfectly for me. It feels very light on my face.

The shade ‘Warm Beige’ is just right for my complexion and doesn’t give the cakey or patchy appearance. It’s extremely light and airy. It almost feels like applying nothing to your face, which I love. However, it doesn’t blend very easily with the foundation brush provided in the packaging. So, I blend it with a sponge after swiping it with the brush.

After about 5 minutes of application, the foundation kind of settles on my face and looks very natural. It has a matte look, so it’s going to be great for oily skin in summers. It provides medium coverage. It covers my acne marks and makes my skin look even. I could notice oil around my T-zone after applying it for more than 5 hours, so I usually set it with my pressed powder with a large powder brush.

Pros of Kiko Creamy Matte Foundation:

• Cute packaging
• Very natural-looking finish
• Nice texture
• Brightens up the face
Evens out my skin tone
• Has a light feel and provides medium to full coverage
• Easily blendable

Cons of Kiko Creamy Matte Foundation:

• Expensive

IMBB Rating: 4.6/5
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Kiko Creamy Matte Foundation?
Those of you who like creamy foundations and would like to splurge in this department should surely try it out. I will not repurchase as I like to try out newer products.

Hi all,

Today’s review will be on a body lotion by EverYuth. I picked up this one during the winters, but didn’t get the time to review it. So, here I am today, finally reviewing this baby! Let’s get started!

INR 99 for 200 ml

Product Description and Ingredients:

My Experience with EverYuth Skin Essentials Moisturizing Body Lotion:

This lotion comes in a pear-shaped bottle. It has a flip cap that opens and shuts tightly. The details are printed on the back side of the bottle. The packaging is convenient and easy to use.

The lotion is white in colour and the consistency of the lotion is thick. It spreads easily on the body, but it is a heavy lotion. It takes some time to get absorbed into the skin. If you take more quantity, then you will have a hard time massaging this lotion in your skin as it gets absorbed slowly. It doesn’t leave a white cast on your body.

This lotion smells like cocoa butter and is a pretty warm fragrance. It lasts for a long time on your skin. It is very moisturizing on the skin. It will keep your skin moisturized for atleast 5-6 hours. But, if you have dry skin, then even this won’t be enough! I also noticed that, if you apply it on your body and go out in the sun, this will make your skin sweat more! So, I recommend you to use this only in the winters as it is not suitable for summers!

Pros of EverYuth Skin Essentials Moisturizing Body Lotion:
  • Affordable.
  • Lovely, warm cocoa butter smell.
  • Moisturising body lotion.
  • Nice packaging.
  • Thick white lotion.
  • Keeps skin hydrated for a long time.
  • Fragrance lasts on the skin for a long time.
Cons of EverYuth Skin Essentials Moisturizing Body Lotion:
  • Takes some time to absorb.
  • Feels slightly heavy if you apply more.

IMBB Rating: 3.8/5

Yes, it is a nice lotion and you can give it a try!

Hello girls,

Hope you all are having a good time. Today I am reviewing my first purchase from Deborah Milano, which is an eyeshadow cum eye pencil. I find such products quite useful. Let’s see how this one fared for me.

Price: Rs. 575
Product Description:
Waterproof cream shadow that blends easily and then transforms into a lightweight finish with ultimate 16h staying power. Highly pigmented creamy formula that doesn’t crease or melt away. Special volatiles combined with silicone resin provide the ultimate staying powder.

My Experience with Deborah Milano 24 Ore Waterproof Eyeshadow and Pencil 11 Mat Grey:

I was not very fond of cream eyeshadow pencils, but when I saw the ease of application, I thought of giving this one by Deborah Milano a try. After using this chubby pencil I realized it’s very hard to manage cream eyeshadows, at least for me. It has a color-coded tip and needs to be sharpened well before every application.

It’s a dark slate grey shade which looks good on light to medium skin tones. Coming to the texture of the eyeshadow pencil, it is very disappointing as it feels sticky on the lids and smudges easily. It is highly matte and nicely pigmented. You will not be able to apply eyeshadow with this pencil in one stroke because of its rough texture as the application is pretty uneven.

Talking about the shade, it’s a highly pigmented slate grey shade that seems like a good shade for creating smoky eye looks. But, I have never been able to apply eyeshadow with this pencil properly and neatly as it smudges on my eyes within minutes. I think its rough texture should be blamed here.

Moreover, removing this eye shadow is also a tough task. A lot of eye makeup remover is required and it gives me panda eyes too. I cannot comment much on its staying power as it fades very quickly and just leaves a grey stain behind.

Pros of Deborah Milano 24 Ore Waterproof Eyeshadow and Pencil 11 Mat Grey:

• Jumbo pencil
• Matte texture for smoky eyes
• Travel-friendly packaging
• Easily available
• Nice grey shade for day as well as night looks
• Highly pigmented
• Affordable

Cons of Deborah Milano 24 Ore Waterproof Eyeshadow and Pencil 11 Mat Grey:

• Very rough texture
• Cannot be used as a liner or kohl ,not even for tight lining
• Too dry
• Patchy application
• Tugs the eyelids
• Not for oily eyelids
• Poor staying power

IMBB Rating: 2/5

Hello IMBBians,

Well-groomed brows make a lot of difference to the face structure. I had hardly used eyebrow pencils and it was only from a few years that I cannot live without one! Certain addictions happen at IMBB! I usually prefer pencils as they are easy to carry and the application is simple. Recently, I picked one from Essence and today’s review is all about Essence Superlast 18H Eyebrow Pomade Pencil in the shade “30 Dark Brown”. Read on to know more.

Price and Quantity:
€1.95 for 0.31 g

My Experience with Essence Superlast 24H Eyebrow Pomade Pencil Waterproof 30 Dark Brown:

The product comes in a plastic case with two sides. The pencil is a twistable type and you don’t need a sharpener as it claims to have one inside. The cap closes with a click and it doesn’t open up. The product is convenient for travelling too. They are easily affordable and available everywhere. The product comes unsealed, so check before you buy them as I noticed some of the pencils were used as there was no tester available.

There are 3 shades available in this range. I picked up the Dark brown one which makes it suitable for black brows. The pencil is creamy and glides easily without any issue. The application is simple, you need to apply the product to the brows and then use the brush and fade them out spreading the color.

The product doesn’t have any smell or is hardly noticeable. Since it is creamy, initially I had more product than needed and I had to blend it out. The product is well pigmented and imparts the color effectively. With just a few swipes, you can easily fill in the gaps and create fuller brows. Even though it claims that it is self sharpenable, I have noticed that once the sharpened tip is used off, it is mostly flat and this can be a little annoying!

The product is a little hard compared to the brow pomade products and this can make the product sit in certain areas and you need a brush to spread it or else, it will look patchy. The brush provided on the other end is practically of no use! The brush doesn’t help very much in the spreading of the product and since the bristles stick onto each other, it takes forever to blend the product. I use an eyebrow brush or a mascara wand like brush to spread out the product. The brush can also be taken out from the pencil. I am not sure if it is by design or my pencil is just broken!

The product lasts really long! Even though 18 hours is a long time, I noticed that the product stays for around 6-7 hours without any issue and then starts to fade away. The product is waterproof and this means that it doesn’t get removed by water based cleansers and you need to use oil based ones to remove it effectively.

Overall, it is a great brow pencil at a throw away price. Since the quantity is less, I think I might have a chance to repurchase one very soon! So summing up

Hi Everyone,

In the era of DSLR and mobile phones with super quality cameras, clicking pictures is surely a big thing. While we all love the colorful frames, there is something too elegant and classy about black and white pictures. Many women prefer having black and white portraits over colored photos. However, makeup for these photos will be quite different than your normal makeup. There are certain makeup techniques that you must follow to highlight your best features in a black and white photograph. In this post, I will tell you guys about the tips that you must keep in your mind while doing makeup for a black and white photo shoot.

1. Concealer is Must

Having even skin is a must in these photos. The darker areas on your face or the dark spots can create an uneven shadow in the picture. Apply color correcting concealer to even out all the flaws. Blend them away and top it with foundation.

2. Choose the Right Foundation

While some prefer full coverage makeup in black and white photos, others prefer a sheer coverage. But, you must attain an even skin with your foundation. If you have no major discoloration and have a flawless skin, a sheer foundation can do wonders for your skin. However, if you have used concealer, a heavy coverage foundation can help you to even everything out. Choose a foundation that matches your skin tone and blend everything on your face and neck. If you do not apply foundation on your neck, it will definitely look disastrous.

3. Highlight and Contour

Creating the perfect shadow effect is must when you are getting clicked in a B&W photo. Use a contour shade to get the sculpted and defined appearance. As the colors won’t show up, you can use deep contour shades to get the desired intensity. To add the right contrast, highlight the required areas with a lighter shade of foundation or highlighter. It is ok to use a shade lighter than what you originally use as a highlighter. This may not look good off camera, but will look great in the photo.

4. Neutral Eye Makeup

Bright, colorful eye shadows do not show up in the B&W photos and may look muddy. So, it is best to play with a few neutral shades. Do not over complicate the eye makeup and try to go for subtle colors. Use a deep eye shadow to create some depth in the crease. Use a light, matte shade to make your eyelids pop.

5. Use False Lashes or Mascara

To give your eyes some extra attention, add falsies. Make sure that you apply falsies properly otherwise, the difference may become prominent. Use a black or transparent adhesive instead of a white one. If you want a subtle look, go for any good mascara that boosts the length as well as volume of the lashes.

6. Fill in your Brows

A bold, sexy brow looks great in B&W photo. Fill in the gaps with an eye shadow or eye brow color. Draw it beautifully and give it an even, well-shaped appearance.

7. Define the Lips

No colors show up in B&W photos, but that does not mean you can use light, neutral shades. That will make your lips look pale and washed out. Lighter shades of red and brown will actually look like your normal lip color in the photos. If you want your lips to look bold, try the deepest red and brown from your stash. You can also mix your black gel liner with your red lipstick to get the deepest color that grabs all attention.

These are the basic things that you must follow while doing makeup for B&W photo. Also, matte makeup looks good in B&W photo, so save your shimmery stuffs for the colorful pictures. It is better to avoid foundations with SPF as that may not look flattering in the pictures. Lastly, experiment with the looks and see how it reflects in the photos. The makeup might not be perfect in the first go. Check the pictures, see if something is not looking right and fix it the next time when you are doing the makeup. Because, just like science, makeup is all about experiments!
