Sun Stripping with Technic Cosmetics

If you’ve been following our blog, you may have read our previous post all about contouring. We like to stay on top of the latest beauty trends here at LTM HQ so we were seriously excited to share our latest post with you all!

Sun Stripping is the latest look beauty editors and bloggers have been talking about this year. If you don’t already know, Sun Stripping involves applying your bronzer to give yourself that natural “just been on holiday” look, without the inconvenience of having to lounge by the pool all day (the horror!)

So courtesy of us at Love Thy Makeup, here’s our super-simple way to sun strip your way to a fresh new summery look!

STEP 1: BASE

Apply your makeup as you would normally do, but make sure you keep it to a basic base layer. You don’t need to contour or highlight to create this look.

STEP 2: BRONZE 

Using a flat blush, gently draw a strip from the top of each cheek (around the ear) to the top of your nose in a slight U shape. Make sure you have blown off any access from the brush before applying the bronzer.

We would recommend using the Technic Superfine Matte Bronzer, for this stage as it’s not too shimmery and leaves a subtle finish.

STEP 3: BLEND

Carefully blend to even out the bronzer and possibly apply a little bit more to the nose if you feel you need it.

The super soft Technic PRO Blusher Brush would be an ideal brush to use for this.

There you have it, you should not have a freshly sun-kissed look to show off!

Contouring 101

Contouring! It’s the current hot topic that everyone in the beauty industry is talking about, and here at LTM we LOVE it!

So, what is contouring?

Contouring is the practice of enhancing your natural facial features by giving subtle shape to your faces’ natural structure.

How do you do it?

Previously, contouring was only used by pro MUA’s for runway models and fancy photo shoots, however thanks to the thousands of Vloggers on Youtube, more and more girls are learning how to contour as part of their every day routine and looking fab!

Our first tip is, DON’T WORRY, it’s super simple with a little bit of practice! We’ve put together a little how-to below:

Selecting a Product:

There are hundreds of products which can be used for contouring. Bronzers, highlighters, Pressed Powders, Concealers and Foundations. If you stick to the basic rules then you can’t go far wrong!

  1. Only use a matte contour (dark)
    The goal of contouring is to re-shape your face by tricking the eye. Dark colors ‘make smaller’ and light colours highlight and accentuate your features. Anything with shimmer also acts as a highlighter, so don’t use shimmer products to contour, only to highlight.
  2. Don’t go too dark
    Until you are a ‘confident contouree’, don’t go too dark! Start with a product one or two shades darker than your skin tone.
  3. Choose your shade carefully
    For a contour to look natural, you should stick to a product that is within the color range that you would usually wear. If your skin is warm toned, go warm toned. Avoid using products that are very warm, something that is too orange won’t look natural. Instead, look for a slightly greyer version of what you would use as a regular bronzer.
  4. You can blend with cream or power.
    Contouring works equally as well with a cream or a powder – there’s no rules to say you must use one or the other so use the product you are most comfortable with! Both cream and powder can be worn alone or over foundation.

 Applying the Contour:

There are some standard rules for applying your contouring make up. BUT as everyone has a different shaped face, what works for you may not work for the next person. Look online for different tutorials to suit your face shape and have a try!

How to survive on a desert island with Love Thy Makeup!

The Island with Bear Grylls is back! And over at Love thy Makeup HQ it’s one of our favourite programmes!

In case you haven’t seen the show, the Island is a reality TV series where a group of 14 men and 14 women are stranded on a desert island for six weeks. During this six weeks they have to survive with no modern luxuries.

Which led us to think, if we were stranded on Bear’s Island, and we could only take a handful of our favourite makeup items with us, what would we take and why?

TECHNIC DUO EYELINERS    

6908_LowRes

Because lets face it, who can seriously live without Eyeliner? The handy sharpener means that they could probably last a little bit longer than a gel or pen Eyeliner. Plus we could use them as a pen to write a message in a bottle!

TECHNIC LASHITUDE MASCARA

24503_OPEN_LowRes

If we’re taking Eyeliner then we have to take Mascara too (obviously)! So by that logic we’d have to take the gorgeous Lashitude Mascara. Plus we could use the shiny metallic casing to signal for help from passing cruise ships, Cocktails on the top deck anyone?

TECHNIC HIGHLIGHTER STICK 

25710_2_LORES

We’d probably already have a pretty healthy glow from sunning ourselves on the beach all day. But it never hurts to top up right? These offer no other survival benefits, we just love them too much to leave them behind!

TECHNIC FLAVOURED LIP BALM 

25610_Kiwi_LowRes

Blue skies, clear seas and white sandy beaches, the only way to complete this perfect tropical paradise would be with a delicious fruity lip balm in one of six refreshing flavours. (Disclaimer: Please do not eat the lip balms!)

TECHNIC COLOURFIX CONCEALER

24705_Dark_HighRes

We can’t survive a day without this, let alone 6 whole weeks! Plus a little dab goes a long way, so one tube might just cover us for the time we were on the island!
