Application: I must admit, I never quite got on with the original beauty blender sponges. I just can’t seem to get my hand eye co-ordination right with the whole ‘bouncing motion’ – though anybody who knows me in real life will know I have absolutely no rhythm in anything. When I was introduced to the MakeupDrop* I was hugely skeptical and the thought of bouncing a piece of silicone over my face to apply foundation kinda weirded me out.
The MakeupDrop is designed to eliminate wastage as only half a drop of foundation is needed in comparison to how much you need to use with a brush. I have to say I am absolutely blown away by it. I use it to blend my foundation in and build coverage – the finish is incredibly flawless. By using the curve of the MakeupDrop you can also create a killer contour. Not bad to say you’re essentially using a breast implant to put your slap on!
Face: A dewy glow isn’t just reserved for summer anymore, it is all about that 24-7 radiance. My favourite highlighter at the moment as the be the MUA ‘Undress Your Skin’ highlighter. The icy, pearl finish looks gorgeous when applied on top of the cheekbones for a ‘lit from within’ vibe without looking Instagram OTT.
This month has been hot, hot, hot and whilst I love a lil’ glow – I don’t love a shiny forehead quite as much. To tackle this, I have been calling upon the #Insta Fix + Matte translucent powder from Rimmel*. This is part of a new collection Rimmel have launched that I’ll be talking about in more detail next week. I use a fluffy, domed brush to apply the powder to my T-zone to make sure my skin stays matte.
