As a Make-up artist I am constantly updating my make-up kit and keeping up with the trends and changes in new ingredients. I thought I would give the new Bobbi Brown compact Long-wear foundations a try. I must say they are fantastic from my point of view, as they are more portable and compact, easier to use and apply. After trying the product on myself I must say, this product is a winner for me and I will certainly be buying more! It just looks like skin when you put it on with the dry sponge, that comes with it. This is really good if you have oily skin, not so good if you have dry skin as it is oil-free, however, it stays on all day and you can build up the coverage you want.
I also bought some Bobbi Brown tinted moisturiser as with Prom make-ups coming up, teens have good, young skin and just don't need a lot of foundation usually, so a nice sheer base always works well.
I also bought some Bobbi Brown high shimmer lip glosses, (I love Bare sparkle), its a very sparkly, nude gloss, beautiful for Brides. To add to my collection of blushers I bought the Coral shimmer blush from Bobbi Brown and also some Face oil and the Repair balm which is amazing too, if you have very dry skin.
I am looking forward to doing a wedding tomorrow in Barnetby. The Bride is after a very dramatic look, (think Beyoncé.) So I can't wait to be doing a smoky eye and lots of false lashes!
I am also very impressed with the Maybelline Colour Tattoo cream gel eyeshadows, I was watching the amazing Charlotte Tilbury on one of her tutorials and she was using one, I bought 4 as they are gorgeous! and have 24 hour staying power! (but who wants it to stay on for 24 hours?!)
I am looking forward to writing my next article for the Journal magazine, for my regular column. This time I am going to write about Mature ladies make-up, as I love doing make-up for mature ladies, they just always look so wonderful! So keep your eyes peeled for some top tips about mature make-up. x
