My makeup tips
I thought I would share some of my FAV makeup products with you all to do a full BASE of makeup for a night out or a special event. The BASE to me is a Primer, Foundation, Concealer and setting powder. Once your base is covered and set in place you can move onto your contouring, blush, bronzer etc. A flawless base makes your makeup look photoshoot ready, no filters needed.
Without a doubt, I NEVER do my makeup without first putting on moisturiser and then using a PRIMER. The Primer is the base to your makeup, a way for your makeup to sit nicely against your skin. I suggest choosing a primer for your skin type. My skin type is NORMAL meaning it’s not too dry or too oily. I LOVE a luminous Primer as a base and for that reason I am listing this primer as my FAVE.
ESTEE LAUDER- ” THE ILLUMINATOR”
I have a HOLY GRAIL Foundation that will forever be my favourite. I LOVE full coverage when it comes to makeup for events or a night out, so my weapons of choice for full coverage flawless makeup are;
NARS- “NATURAL RADIANT LONG WEAR FOUNDATION” In the Shade Barcelona.
ESTEE LAUDER– “DOUBLE WEAR” In the shade 4N2- Shell Beige
I have tried MANY brands over the years and again I LOVE a full coverage concealer. My weapons of choice for perfect coverage are;
TARTE- “SHAPE TAPE- CONTOUR CONCEALER” In the Shade 35H Medium Honey.
This is a FULL Coverage thicker finishing.
URBAN DECAY- “ALL NIGHTER CONCEALER” In the Shade Medium-Neutral
This is a FULL Coverage with a thinner finishing.
A good setting powder is key to a flawless base and your makeup staying put and not creasing as the day/night goes on. I have tried SO many setting powder, but the best one yet is
LAURA MERCIER – TRANSLUCENT LOOSE SETTING POWDER in the shade Translucent Honey
I LOVE to dab this powder softly under my eyes straight after I have applied my concealer, and with a bigger brush sweep the powder across the rest of my face.
There are so many products you can try and so much fun you can have when it comes to makeup. If you are unsure what products suit you, book in at a local farmers, Mecca or Sephora and do a consultation with one of the girls to find products that suit your skin type.
