10 basic makeup products that make you look simply amazing!
Makeup brands are popping up everywhere and thanks to the power of social media, platforms such as YouTube are offering countless makeup tutorials to help you achieve your perfect look.
I see those raised eyebrows and your looks of horror when they apply layer upon layer of weird and wonderful products, so being the kind person that I am 😊 and of course a Personal Makeup Coach, I’ve decided to help you filter out just 10 major must haves to create each and every perfect look you want, whenever you want.
Primer - Prime your face before applying any makeup, not only will this allow create a perfect base, it will also help it last throughout the day. At our headquarters we are all raving about the new ‘Sceptr Cosmetics Primer’ which happens to be the world’s first gel-based anti-aging primer. It has been developed to help hydrate and protect skin whilst delivering anti-aging properties in to your skin and allowing makeup to blend better and go the little bit further. One of a kind as its said to allow you to mix it in you’re your foundation or concealers to create a lighter more sheer coverage. That’s not all this little beauty has to offer, its kind to your skin with lush ingredients and no oils. A Home run ladies.
Foundation - You needn’t be heavy handed with foundations and should only apply where you need coverage. There are many types as you know, but the theory is that sheer liquid foundations look the most natural. As we age we tend to go for either full on coverage to cover dark/sun spots and pigmentation or do the opposite and go sheer for a more natural dewy finish which gives a more youthful appearance. We suggest Makeup Forever Face and Body foundation for a sheer finish or IT Cosmetics for full coverage with skin benefits, very popular as it has a built-in sunscreen and is also hydrating!
For a little more covergage without the heavy feeling, go for Fenty Beauty foundation.
Concealer - To look fresh and erase signs of fatigue and tiredness, concealer is definitely a girl’s best friend. The darker the circles under the eye the deeper tone of apricot your concealer should be. Always buy a concealer one shade lighter than your foundation ‘IF’ you are wearing it over foundation, otherwise buy a shade that matches the lightest part of your face. You can also buy a separate salmon/deep apricot color corrector to help neutralize dark circles which you should apply before concealer, this stops the cakey look that we all know is a serious no-no. We suggest Nars radiant concealer, Tarte Shape Tape and Maybelline’s Eraser concealer for a drug store competitor.
Brows - Your brows frame your face and the right brows can do wonders to your finished look. A thicker brown can make the face appear slimmer and a nice neat brow can give a polished/natural look.
We recommend Kabrow and Precisely my Brow by Benefit cosmetics asthey are our favourite brow game changers! They are always coming up with new ways to keep our brows on fleek.
