After being bombarded my several different adverts for BB Creams in the past few weeks, I thought it was about time I gave one a try. I’ve tried lighter foundations before – like MAC Mineralize Skin Finish – and just not gotten on with them so I was a bit apprehensive this time around!
Garnier Miracle Perfector BB Cream
It probably helps to understand a bit more about BB Creams, there’s a bit more to them than just being tinted moisturiser!
Here’s the third instalment of my Spring/Summer 2012 tutorials! This look is really versatile – it can go from a perfect day look to something you could wear out with a splash of bright lipstick. For you ladies who like your winged eyeliner this is definitely a look for you!
It’s also very simple like the contoured look I did previously, so it’s great if you’re in a hurry. The slick of eyeliner in the outer corner of the lid gives the appearance of fuller lashes whilst the minimal makeup in the rest of the face gives it a really clean and fresh feel – just what you want in a spring look.
So finally here’s another Spring/Summer makeup tutorial following on from Retro Glamour! This is a more wearable look for daytime, simply using contouring to enhance what you’ve already got. It’s a very quick look too so you can use it as a go to look for everyday.
Edit: There’s a better photo of this look at the end of this post! It showed up better on my iPhone
So I’ve just got back from doing some shopping, for makeup of course, and I got a lovely surprise when I went to get some bits from Illamasqua! I’m not sure if it’s at all stores or concessions but with every 2 items you buy you get a free nail varnish! It’s well worth it as usually nail varnishes are priced at £13.50.
There are 4 or 5 to choose from depending on the stock they’ve got left. I chose Wink (a lovely lilac) and Unnatural (a rich burgundy red). I’ll be reviewing one of them later tonight so keep your eyes peeled!
I’m also going to do a tutorial/review of the medium pencils and skin sketching technique that Illamasqua have developed, which is also tipped to be big for Spring/Summer 2012 – lots of contouring around!
