I was clearing out my room the other week and rediscovered it. Now the days are becoming hotter and more humid I was on the search for a good BB Cream or tinted moisturiser for a light coverage base. I thought as I had it, I would give it another go. I do not get along well with BB creams or anything like that as I struggle to apply make up with my fingertips (not because I can't, but because I prefer not to) and so when I've tried to apply such things on with brushes or beauty blenders I've absolutely HATED the look of them on my skin. I have fairly good skin at the moment so thought I would trial it for a while and give you my thoughts.
My colour is Beige 02
(The Skin Tint is blended into my hand above the mess I made -FYI)
Because of the change in weather I have opted for a more natural looking face, purely because my foundation likes to crease and melt off my face half way through the day (and wearing glasses at work doesn't help either) and it's bloody frustrating! It also feels so heavy on and I just can't be dealing with that through the week - and don't get me wrong I love a good coverage foundation and I will continue to wear such thing on special occasions or if I venture out in the evening through summer but until then I am 100% sticking to this. Unlike before when I tried this I am now using my fingers to blend this into my skin and the finish is so much nicer, although it doesn't cover up greatly on the old spots and red patches it does really well when you don't have those things burdening you. It's a creamy formula that when applied to the skin leaves it looking naturally dewy, even and radiant. It's great for those who have a more tanned body than face and don't like much make up as it just evens out the colour of your skin and blends perfectly to match - providing you blend it well and also blend on the neck to avoid any lines. I wear this from 8am in the morning till 9/10pm at night and it doesn't slip off my face, nor does it look cakey from touch-ups during the day. The only thing I have is slight creasing under my eyes where it gets a little oily but apart from that this is literally amazing if you don't want a heavy-coverage foundation. It just evens everything out and gives you a little bit of colour too - It's SPF15 which is perfect, because no one wants to be putting sunscreen on their face when you're trying to look like you made an effort, right?!
- Make sure your fingers are clean
- Moisturise; although it's moisturising in itself, it's fairly thick in consistency so it's a lot easier to blend when your face is freshly moisturised
- Don't take flash photos; SPF flashbacks to give you those wonderful discoloured faces (cute)
- I apply my concealer first because I find I can't blend it as well afterwards (totally up to you though!)
