Most times I wear natural or neutral looking makeup. I’ve added a few new items to my makeup bag. All these products that I have selected are so easy to apply… and I literally do my makeup in 10 minutes, unless I’m going for a neutral look which takes me a whole lot longer.
I’ve tried many different foundations but so far I have found none better than Sisley Phyto Teint Eclat. This is oil-free and goes on smoothly. It doesn’t move around and stays for a long time. It gives a light-weight to medium coverage and looks very natural on the skin. This is perfect as I like my skin to show through even on those days when my skin is not at it’s best.
Nars radiant creamy concealer is a great under eye cover-up. It has a thick consistency and gives a good coverage without looking cakey. It’s blendable and a little goes a long way. What I love about this product… is it doesn’t emphasize those fine lines around the eye area. I use two different colours to get my exact shade.
Laura Mercier Powder
The texture of Laura Mercier translucent powder is silky smooth, light-weight and comes in two different shades, original and medium deep. I guess the company realised that one translucent powder wasn’t perfect on all skin tones. Thumbs up to Laura Mercier.
It is meant to control oil and gives a smooth matte finish. It blends effortlessly. This product does what it says. As I like a more dewy look, I use this powder for special occasions, such as to have photos made. Although it is recommended to use a velour puff I prefer a brush for more even and light distribution.
Chanel Press Powder
Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer powder gives a natural finishing veil and eliminates shine without the cakey effect. It comes with a half moon brush which is good for touch-ups on the go.
Mattemoiselle matte lipstick glides on easily, feels very light and the colour pigment is intense with a velvety texture. One swipe gives a really good coverage. Usually, matte lipsticks dry out my lips but this one does not. It feels really comfortable and lasts a long time. It does transfer a little though.
Killawatt highlighter duo has a subtle and a more metallic shade. It can be used wherever you need to highlight. It blends well and I especially love the more subtle shade which gives a beautiful sheen. The metallic shade is best for the evening.
Gloss Bomb comes in one colour and is meant to compliment all skin tones. It has the most amazing fruity scent and feels so soft on the lips without that sticky feeling.
