Essentials

May 20th, 2015

_MG_9523SO couple of you have asked how I have done my make up on this shoot. It is actually my ‘usual beauty look’, besides for some extra eye-shadow, but as far as skin goes I am the biggest fan of ‘dewy’ look.
That basically means a LOT of moisture, creme products and highlighter on the right places, with some soft countering using  bronzer. Over the next couple of weeks I will take you through the beauty my beauty routines and my cult products that will give you an insight into how-to do the look.

Step 1:
First of all prepping skin is a key step, I have been big fan of La Mer foundation for some years now due to the natural yellowness of the foundation and it’s consistency which leaves skin nicely moisturised.I use foundation as I still haven’t found the right BB, but I thin it out with well, one-and-only Embryolisse (besides massaging it into skin prior to any make up) . The ratio that works for me is 2:1, as I still retain some coverage yet the foundation doesn’t feel heavy.
P.S If you use moisturising products it is fixating spray is a key step, or everything just slides of.

    I haven’t found a right BB cream for me too! So I’m a fan of foundations as well! And La Mer has one of the best ones!
