Awesome Link: Beauty Products That Flatter Everyone

InStyle presents 5 beauty products that flatter everyone. Here's the round-up and some products available locally for everyone to play with. I painstakingly searched for local products, their prices and some reviews so you don't have to. :P

1. Gold and Purple Eye Shadow  Gold on inner corners brightens all eyes, while purple's broad appeal is that it's not too cool or too warm.

  • Try Lulu Makeup's Rio Palette. Available at TheLuluMakeup site for Php950 for the purple eyeshadow and the Manhattan palette (also Php950) for the gold eyeshadow. Say Tioco Artillero uses these palettes a lot for her tutorials.
  • Dollface Cosmetics also has palettes and eyeshadow quads with purple and gold eyeshadows.
  • For cheaper, non-palette options, there are Ellana Multipurpose mineral powders for Php130 for 0.7 grams and are available in many variants of Gold: Felicity(pale gold with green shimmer), Sensational (iridescent white gold (white shifting to gold)), Gorgeous (yellowish pure gold frost), Divine (light tan gold frost), Shine (lemon gold frost); and Purple: Orchid - purple frost; and Laugh - deep violet frost (eyeliner/eyeshadow)

2. Pinkish Brown Lip Liner Define lips with pinkish brown color. It won't look cartoonish on fair, medium or dark skin.

  • The Body Shop Lip Liner: Shade 10 in Pink Brown. Price to follow.
  • CoverGirl LipPerfection Lip Liner in Smoky. Php325. Liz of Project Vanity reviewed the product here.
  • Etude House Auto Lip Liner. I got a pink-brown shade (forgot the shade code, sorry!) for only Php98. 

3. Sheer Pink Lip Gloss  Sheer pink gloss complements all lip colors and never looks overdone.

  • Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar(P278). Check the Project Vanity review here
  • Lip Ice Sheer Color (Php145). Project Vanity review here
  • Nivea Pinkish Boost (Php100+). I personally have this and this lasts forever! lol
4. Deep Cocoa Eyeliner  A dark brown liner is rich enough to register on dark skin but won't overwhelm ivory skin.
