I wanted to share with you my readers my trial of KISS makeup.  Going into most beauty supply stores you will find this product.  So out of curiosity I decided to give it a try.  I am always looking for great makeup that is affordable and  yet give you the quality that you deserve.
I can do this because I know that we as women are not completely loyal to anyone product brand although we will often prefer one or two items from a brand over another brand.  With that said let me tell you that I did try KISS because I had been seeing it and wanted to know just what it could and could not do or just what it had to offer my clients who wanted to be able to buy cosmetics on a buget and believe me you will find the KISS is diffently affordable for any ones budget.
I was very supprised at the quality of coverage that the makeup gave my clients and the colors of the eyeshadow which is mineral was awesome and if I needed the colors and did not want to buy a highter price product this will do quite nicely.  The glosses were awesome and I liked them alot and will use them on my clients as well.
So remember just because a cosmetic has a higher price does not mean that they neccessarily are the better brand for you to try.  We all are conservative with our money these days and it is good to know that you can get the "Look for Less"

Q: How long should I keep my makeup and brushes last?


A big, fuzzy brush mascara with fibers that cling to your lash hairs to create the appearance of a great new set of luxurious, lush lashes.
A: Here is a list of the standard approximate shelf life of your beauty products:

Concealer, cream foundations, and cream blush: 12-18 months

Powder, powder foundation, powder blush, powder eye shadows and bronzers: 2 years

Eye liners: 2 years

Mascara: 3 months

Lip liners: 2 years

Lip-gloss: 18-24 months

If any of your makeup has a foul smell throw it away. If mascara becomes dry, throw it away. Keep all products closed tightly and don’t forget to wash your brushes every two weeks with a nice mild brush cleaner.


Q: What is the benefit to having mineral in the makeup?


An advanced formula lipstick enriched with jojoba oil for continuous moisture and protection.
A: Mineral Makeup is made from pure minerals found in the earth. Minerals provide natural protection from the sun. They are gentler to the skin. Minerals also help absorb excess oils and moisture.


Q: Is there any strategy I can use to choose correct makeup shades?

A: Foundation should match your skin tone. If you choose shades lighter or darker, you will have a definitive line between your neck and face. Many women of color do best to use two shades of foundation, one for the inner portion of the face and one or the perimeter to create the most natural application.

Examine your skin's undertone to determine the best makeup shades for you. Ebony complexions oftentimes have blue undertones, which make them cool. Brown complexions usually have gold undertones, which are warm.

If you do not have many skin problems, use a tinted moisturizer. For more coverage try other foundation formulas to match your individual need like liquids, crème to powder and maximum coverage creams.

For darker complexions, use plum, berry and mauve shades of blush. For lighter skin, use peach and honey tones.

Experiment with eye shadows to find shades that complement your skin tone. Dark eyes look great with plums and pinks. However, you can also use bronzes and golds for a terrific evening look or a bit of daytime shimmer. Everyone can pull of an awesome dark smokey eye. Choosing shadow has much to do with your lifestyle and personal take. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Makeup should be fun! The best part about it is that you can always wash it off!

I hope you enjoy and get something out of this article.  And remember, DivaGlam Cosmetics has the products to create these and any look.  Check us out at  see you there. 

Have a DIVA-licious Day,
