So I just wanted to tell you about the make up look that I’ve been wearing lately on a daily basis. As much as I love make up, I tend to stick to more neutral shades for every day and even when I’m going out on a night out, I just tend to step it up a notch by intensifying the colours on the eyes and/or lips.
I never got the point of power until recently. I mean why would I want to put powder on my face and cake it up/dry it out? Only NOW do it get it especially since I’ve started using liquid foundation. Not only is powder designed to help set your foundation and your concealer into place to avoid it slipping and sliding and make it last longer, it takes away any shine to leave a subtle matte (not dry) finish. For one who’s skin has “turned” in recent times and gone from being normal and manageable, to combination/oily and frankly a major ball-ache, it’s become a bit of an essential. I have been using Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder. It’s one of those products that does what it says on the tin and is so inexpensive, you can’t go wrong. I swept a layer of this with a big powder brush, mainly across my T- Zone area and under the eyes (using a smaller brush). I like to keep my cheeks free of this and as dewy as possible.
