GLOWING SKIN FOR S/S 2014
Foundation: The BODYSHOP All-In-One BB Cream is great for that natural glowing looking skin. I would not recommend it for anyone with Oily Skin as it is quite a rich, moisturizing formula. At first application the formula is white, but as you blend the little pigments start coming out and blending invisibly into your skin. I like to apply a touch of translucent powder to his BB Cream to set it.
Concealer: ELIZABETH ARDEN‘s Flawless Finish Correcting and Highlighting Perfector (RSP R345) helps to brighten and conceal under the eyes. I also use it on the bridge of the nose, my cheek bones and cupid’s bow to add a highlight and brighten my complexion. This is more of a brightening pen as apposed to a concealer, for me it works well though as it gives me just enough cover.
Contour: Next I applied my glowing bronzer from SENSAI. Their Designing Duo Bronzing Powder (RSP R655) is a dual toned bronzer that adds a soft contour and a beautiful natural glowing finish! I applied this powder all around the edge of my face and in the hollows of the cheeks.
Blush: For a healthy blushed cheek I used my CATRICE Defining Blush in 050 Apropos Apricot (RSP R57.95 Available at Dischem). This soft peach blush is one of my favourite colours! Apply a pop of this blush to the apples of the cheeks.
Highlight: One of my Absolute Favourite highlighting powders is this Lumi Magique Pearl Powder in 02 Rose Radieux (RSP R159.95) from LOREAL. This powder is what made this look as gorgeous and glowing as it can be. I applied it to the bridge of my nose, cheekbones, cupids bow, brow bone and to the inner corners of the eyes. It is part of their Limited Edition L’or Lumiere range and will be available until Dec 2014.
Lips: For the lips I wanted to have a bronze glow, but I didn’t want the lips to have a brown/bronze colour. So I first applied my PALLADIO lipstick in Surely Pink (RSP R74.95 Available at Dischem). This lipstick is great soft pink lipstick that gives the lips jsut enough colour and definition. Over that I applied my BLACK OPAL lipstick in Brown Sugar (RSP R95.00 Available at selected Clicks, Truworths, Edgars, Foschini) to add that bronzed glow finish.
With this look the glowing skin is the focus! Keep the rest of your face natural.
