Reach Out – Suggestions For Lipsticks, Highlighter and Concealer

By Rashmi

Hello beautiful ladies,

So IBJ is set out to help makeup-disabled like me with their reach out initiative, I couldnt be happier ! Thanks Preetha !
Makeup has always been something I have never paid much heed to. But I have lately realized its almost as much a part of good presentation, as a good skin is ! I have had and been doing basic makeup and now I want to upgrade a little. I have been following lots and lots of blog, reading more than 50 posts a day . .and that has made me even more confuse.
So what I want to buy is, couple of sheer easy to carry to work lipsticks/long wear gloss (not nude please) for my dusky skin tone. I have never got checked myself in MAC but I may be somewhere around NC 42-44. So accordingly please. Pinks and frost wash and kill my face.
Next : a highlighter. A decent subtly shimmer highlighter. Whats your take on colorbar liquid highlighter guys?
Have heard pretty decent views about it , or the moonlit highlighter by lakme .
Next on the list is a bronzer, I dont know if I’d get the chance of using it ever, but I find myself craving for it. So a s*xy bronzer. 
I also want to buy an epilator. I am thinking braun 3270/ 5280. Any recommendations ?


And lastly concealer. I have a couple of concealers, but nothing that works well on acne marks. So something for them please !
Please suggest products that are available online, Ranchi is a makeup desert :(
Its a light years long question I know. Thanks for reading and thanks in advance for answering !
The best answer gets . . . lots of kisses and hugs darling :)
My Answer:
Hi Rashmi,
I am so glad you came up with this. I loved reading the long list of questions. Personally, I also share a similar complexion and for me nude lipsticks do not work. I prefer berries and brownish pinks.

So I would suggest Revlon Colorburst Lipsticks ( Rs.610 and less online) in Sienna ( Brick brown), Soft Rose (Beautiful everyday pink). In MAC, I highly recommend you get Retro. It is the best neutral lipstick for our skin tone.

Highlighter – Do check out Lakme. I tried it at the store n it looked very good.
Concealer – Colorbar full cover concealer ( Mostly shade 02, medium)
Bronzer – Chambor Single Blush Star Delight

Readers, now it’s your turn to help Rashmi out. Kindly suggest the best options for her.
