in my makeup bag *right about now

31 Mar

i am absolutely in no way faithful at all, at all, to beauty products.

i have yet to be sucked in and involve myself in any form of relationship with or commitment to a particular brand.

this is what i am currently seeing and due to my frivolous beauty junkie nature, these guys may not even be around in a few months…let’s be honest…

Face Fabric – Armani for Best Foundation 2012

11 Jan

Believe it, if like me, you have the tendency to get a little oily in certain areas an hour or two after application, it’s not down to adding another layer of powder, but a better base more suited to your skin type. Mine being combination-oily but with dry patches too grr!!

My friend Maria and I went for coffee the other day and I couldn’t help but notice her baby soft, clear skin, she always has had good skin but this was PERFECT skin, all flawless, but still dewy. FINALLY, a foundation that does what it says on the tin. Face Fabric by Georgio Armani. Long lasting, natural, and lets your skin look and feel healthy.

I sound like I’m on commission here -I’m not!- but I got this four days ago (35 euro in the airport!) and think I have finally found my signature base. I got it in #2 and my skin is typical Irish with a few freckles but not super pale either.

I apply it with clean fingertips and blend lightly wherever you need it, but just a little amount, and I wear it with Cremeblush ‘Lilicent’ by Mac on the apples of my cheeks, Eyebrow Pencil in ‘Hazel’ by Rimmel and Correcting Concealer ‘Healthy Mix’ in 52 Medium Radiance¬† by Bourjois.

Natural and healthy, and a nice glow ūüôā Try it and see for yourself!
