|Morning face- on the lips Madara lip gloss Moonstone|
|Ellis Faas L304- yummy|
|I like this- nothing oevr powering for work- although looking a little pale :)|
|close up on the peach eyex- love Tromborg's Peachpuff- lasts all day!|
|Looking pensive - hair do- ala Diane Kruger messy low bun!|
I would have like to show you why darker skins need a little more pigment than the rest to avoid looking washed out, courtesy of the white cast from a strong SPF, but I have pre-empted this by applying Nars TM Cuba which is 2 shades deeper than my skin tone. I am BB Honey for reference.I could have done somthing complex ala Pixiwoo or Lisa Eldridge but time is pressing, I should have gone with a deeper pigment peach, but it is work- so conservative was the way forward!
I cannot impress the importance of using a SPF of 20 or higher ( broad spectrum with a physical block) if you are using exfoliants ( retinol or glycolic acid).
I am slowly resurfacing my skin (cheek area) with FAB daily radiance pads and Rose hip oil to improve the texture of old acne scarring.
Today’s face is :
Moisturiser- 3 drops of Rose hip oil (face and neck) + Invisible Zinc SPF 30 ESP ( love this product) +
100% pure Coffee bean eye cream ( staple)
Skin tint- Nars Radiant tinted Moisturiser SPF 30 in CUBA
Cheeks – I worked on the cheek colour first today, Maq Pro Le Maquillage Lip/cheek/eye pallet – Posey peach shade 151 on the apples ( buffed In with real techniques contour brush) and topped with Tromborg eye/lip/cheek powder crème in peach puff ( for slight glisten)
Eyes- Tromborg peach puff on the lids, lined with YSL False lash effect liner , finished with Mascara Rimmel Lash accelerator
Brows- Korres Brow pencil in shade 2, sealed with Talika Lipocils brow serum
Lips- outlined with Korres Brow pencil shade 2 ( think this as an alternative to MAC L/Liner in Stone, just better for golden skin tones). In the morning, I had used peach posey as base from the le maquillage palette, topped with madara lip-gloss/balm in moonstone, and in the afternoon- Ellis Faas lip gloss In L304 on its own ( not so peachy but more Orange crush).
www.preciousaboutmakeup.com stocks Le Maquillage products.
Tromborg is lovely is so Scandinavian chic- www.tromborg.com or www.eleven/se/en. Both sites deliver to the UK with reasonable speed, rates and good manners!!!
I will do a dedicated review for Ellis Faas (www.ellisfaas.com) another day- just mainly for the lip products
( the glosses and the milky lips are gorgeous- they have good mail order manners and can surprise you with free makeup goodies too). I don’t favour the eye pens ( the delivery system is rubbish and unreliable- I do not wish to waste any more money on them until they sort out the rubbish pens!!!! The product itself is quite stellar, but seriously let down by nonsensical packaging- this is definitely all style and no substance!!)
