        Lip-dressing! Lip stain and lipstick, how are they different?

        So many types of lip products on the market! We all know what lipsticks are, and are you familiar with lip stains?

         

        There is a big difference between lip stain and lipstick. Most of the lipsticks are cream-like  solid bullet, just like the lip balm people use to keep the lips moisturized. The only difference between them is that lip balk is for skin care, the effect lies in moisturizing and lip care.

         

        Unlike lipsticks that add a layer on top of the lips, stains are absorbed into the outer layers of the skin for a sheer pop of low-maintenance color.

         

        Lip stain is different from lipstick. It has a new texture to it, with a crystal-like color. The color adheres nicely to the lips and remains bright for a long time, creating a perfectly vibrant look. They are easier to apply with the built-in brush, simply smear it on the lips, after it drys up in a second, it delivers a melt-in effect. For those who have fine lines on the lips, makeup artists from Palace Identity would recommend you the lip stain, for it sticks on the lips more seamlessly than lipstick, which may make the fine lines appear less obvious.

         

        For beginners, lip stain is more friendly for it easy application. As it conceals the fine lines, the color appear more natural as well. You can tell in the name, the lip stain is more long-wearing than lipsticks and especially ideal for this mask-wearing season.

        How to overcome foundation oxidation and stay fresh-faced all day?

        How to overcome foundation oxidation and stay fresh-faced all day?

        Why does your foundation looks flawless when just applied, but becomes dull before lunch time? You are not the only who has this problem.

         

        Just like the apple will start to brown after peeling, the reason that causes your makeup appear dull is oxidation. There are many factors that cause makeup to oxidize, such as skin texture, oily and tanned level, etc., all of which accelerates oxidation reaction. This is why, when many of you apply foundation, the shade looks clear and natural, but after a few hours, the skin becomes very dull and even a little orange.

         

        So why oxidation occurs? Oxygen, this is colourless, odourless, tasteless gas is essential to living organisms. Most living things need oxygen to survive, while oxygen also lead to decay and decomposition, such as moldy foods and rusty metal, as well as aging skin.

        First and foremost, moisturizing is the best way for the skin to resist oxidation. When the skin is fully moisturized, it gains a stronger barrier to resist oxidation and UV rays. However, if the skin is dehydrated, it becomes tender, more sensitive and oily which leads to faster foundation oxidation.

         

        For those who often apply makeup, they are aware of the importance of setting makeup. Skipping the setting procedure does not necessarily save time. A proper-set makeup separates the foundation from the air, which makes it appear more natural and long-wear.

        About the choice of foundation, since it glides directly onto the skin, make sure it’s lightweight and won’t burden the skin. Palace Identity’s Chinese Phoenix Foundation, this luxurious formula increases skin’s natural ability for visible self-repair, constantly improve the sallow tone and enable the skin to appear bright.

         

        Cakey foundation, why and how to avoid?

        Cakey foundation, why and how to avoid?

        There are two main reasons for cakey foundation, one is that the skin is dehydrated, and the other is that the chosen foundation is too dry hence not suitable for your skin. 

         

        Dry skin can cause a cakey look. When the skin is very dry, the stratum corneum will be lifted, which makes the foundation to be unevenly dispersed. And the sebum causes the powder to accumulate in the pores. The uneven skin texture also contributes to the accumulation of powdery substance.

        The dryness of the skin leads to poor adhesion between foundation and the skin. And those who have oily skin, pores are clogged and the T area become uneven after absorbing the oil.

         

        Hydration, hydration, hydration! No matter your skin type is dry or oily.

        Incorporate more hydration in your skincare routine especially before you apply makeup. You can try to mix some essence oil with foundation so the mixture glide onto your skin seamlessly. Palace Identity’s Color Correcting Primer and Chinese Phoenix Foundation are designed so save cakey face. The primer preps your skin for the following application, and our STAR foundation has an up to 12h oil-control when balancing the skin’s natural oil & water levels.

        Combating dry winter skin - how to stop foundation from flaking?

        Combating dry winter skin - how to stop foundation from flaking?

        "Why you always hear different voices on the same liquid foundation? Some highly praise it while others strongly disagree. That’s due to different skin textures and skin care routines.

         

        Some have dry skin, when apply foundation before the dry skin is fully moisturized, the foundation is very likely to be cakey.

         

        For those who have oily skin and also have a preference for moisturizing skincare products, the foundation would slip off quickly. Especially when the primer and sun cream are included in the routine, the foundation would have a hard time gliding onto the skin.

         

        Nevertheless, flawless, poreless foundation look is still attainable. The makeup guru’s trick is to apply products in the right order.

        To start off with, know your skin!

         

        You need to choose according to your skin types and the makeup effect you desire. The kind of foundation that can conceal cannot deliver a bare-skin makeup effect. While some foundations are super long-wearing, oil-control and conceal all the marks and pores, they are understandably thicker and more powdery.

         

        Providing you choose the right foundation for your skin, take some time to observe the performance. If it shows your dry skin and still gets cakey, it might caused by dehydrated skin. So after the skincare routine, apply some serum to lock the moisture, and that should stop your foundation from getting caked on.

         

        Our Chinese Phoenix Foundation features a liquid-to-powder formula, which is ideal for combination and oily skin types with its up to 12h oil-control performance. What’s makes it stands out is that herbal ingredients it contains which can increase skin’s natural ability for visible self-repair, improve the sallow tone and enable the skin to appear bright.
