Hyperpigmentation, acne, scarring, and eczema, are just a few examples of many types of skin issues. Many factors contribute to the type of skin you have. Genetics, bacteria trapped in skin pores, fungus, viruses, a weak immune system, underlying illnesses, or even just stress can create a skin disorder.
A quick solution to covering up skin blemishes is wearing makeup. An inexpensive makeup brand that you can buy from your local CVS or Dollar Tree is LA Colors. From highlighter to lipgloss, their coverage is superb.
L.A Colors Lipgloss
Lipgloss provides the double feat of creating a full coverage of color and moisture. LA Colors Lipgloss is a fan favorite because it allows for a high level of shine/rich color. My personal favorite is the Glossy Lips Collection. The shade “Tropical Punch” is red and is great for darker skin tones. The “Dreamy Pink” shade works well with lighter skin tones.
Their Sheer Tube Glossy Lip Gloss is cruelty-free, which means they were manufactured by methods that do not harm animals. The price range is $1-$2.
L.A Colors Contour & Highlight
If you have naturally clear skin, wearing contour and highlight by itself is perfectly fine. Contour drives focus on your cheekbones, jawline, and hairline. Highlighter enhances your browbone, forehead, and nose bridge.
For women of color, the LA Colors ” I Heart Makeup” Contour Palette offers light to darker shades. You can sculpt and define key facial features by blending different contour shades.
Highlighters can give you a shimmery, glowy look. Try out the “So Cheeky” blush and highlight palette to get your unique fabulous look. The cost of either contour or highlight is $6-$7.
I never realized the versatility of eyeshadow until I started to look into tutorials of makeup artists using eyeshadow to cover dark circles. Test out different colors even if it means blending more than one together to cancel out the puffy dark bags. Usually, a reddish and deep tan eyeshadow works. L.A Colors Eyeshadow Nude is ideal for mixing & matching. You can purchase this specific eyeshadow at Dollar Tree for $1.25.
Bronze It Up
I personally love bronzer because it reminds me of brown glitter. Its primary purpose is to add a healthy warm look to your skin. Make sure you blend it in along the perimeter of your face. Avoid overdoing it, and put any excess that you have left over on your nose, chin, and neck. For deeper skin tones, look for a reddish undertone bronzer. For lighter skin tones, seek out orange tones. L.A Colors bronzer comes in natural, beachy, spice, tanned, and deep tan matte shades.
Before applying makeup, make sure that you wash your face with lukewarm water. Choose a cleanser that works well with your skin type, lather, and massage. Rinse and then pat dry.
Makeup is something some women only wear on important occasions. Some like to wear it every day. Regardless of how often you wear it, make sure that you take the necessary steps to protect your skin and don’t apply too much. All in all, I give L.A Colors makeup brand an 8/10 only because I have only tried their lipgloss, highlight, and bronzer. In the future when I try out their concealer, blush, nail tips, mascara, eyeliner, lip liner, and lipstick, I can give a more detailed analysis. If you want to get a glam look without spending too much, L.A Colors is the right pick.
