How I get fresh glowing skin

I think one of the best parts of my job, tiring as it is, is the fact that I get to try new products and when it comes to getting your glow on, I’m just all over that!

Somebody wise once told me that, nobody ever says wow, you’ve got beautiful, matte skin and I’m pretty sure I laughed so hard because it’s just too true, you really don’t. We all talk about that beautiful healthy glow and I mean who doesn’t want to look fresh and pretend that they eat healthy food all the time. The very first time I put this product on my face I instantly fell in love.

With a lot of products I try for the first time, I always think I’m in love with them in the beginning but then I realise it’s just not good for me in the end, like the 2 donuts I had today. I am currently using Red earth’s Illuminating Loose Powder in 01 Pearl.  This product is just amazing and unlike the bad donut decision, I don’t regret this at all.

I am a powder setter, I always finish my makeup off with powder no matter loose or pressed I pack that stuff on because it’s the only way I know my makeup will stay on throughout the day. This particular powder is so super fine that it makes your skin feel velvety soft, but even better once applied and blended throughout the skin, the luminosity appears instantly. I love how it comes with a powder puff because when you press powders into the skin, the better it sets your makeup. I team this powder up with Estee Lauder’s Double wear and for my skin it just works, not only does it look more flawless, but my skin really looks like it’s glowing.

It does also come in another shade and that is Magician which is more of a soft gold which works well on more warm tones. In saying that, there really isn’t too much colour once applied, but I can definitely see why they would have two because it can also be used on its’ own to help enhance radiance on bare skin but also used as a highlight. Make your cheekbones eat their heart out!

Let me know what your current favourite powder is or even if you’ve tried this one and until next time..

FEEL: Benefit Hello flawless oxygen wow liquid foundation

I am a big fan of Benefit right now and I only dream that one day I will be a Benebabe but dreams come true and you never know. =)

(Caroline’s wise wisdom of the day)

In a previous post I teased a little bit about some products that I just bought in a puzzling picture that gave A LOT away, I did my best, and today is the day I share what products I bought with you in something that I would like to call a review?

One of my all time favourite foundations right now is Benefit hello flawless oxygen wow liquid foundation. It’s light, it’s oil free, it has oxygen in it! say hello to my skin breathing under all the makeup, it has a brightening effect, it’s great!

This is a great go to day to day foundation where you don’t feel like putting on too much makeup, but just having something there because if you’re like me bare skin is only for shower time.

oxygen anyone?

I love the fact that it is so light and it doesn’t feel as if I have a tonne of makeup on which is great especially it leading to summer over where I’m at. Even for the days my skin disagrees with me, concealer is my absolute saviour! I’ve seen it work first hand as one of my besties had her makeup done by a benebabe and throughout the day I saw how glowing her skin became and the brightening effect had a lot to do with the glow on her skin. I couldn’t take my eyes away I was like babe your skin is GREAT! you look flawless! (as the name entitles)

It contains SPF and is literally a must for everyday skin care especially any babes like me with the acne scarring, the sun actually darkens those scars and makes them worse, so pack on that sunscreen!

So there are 9 different shades, one to suit almost every skin colour, I purchased mine for $55 AUD for 30mL and I’ve been pumping this bottle like crazy, but depending on how much you use it, mine has lasted me 5 months now, I wear it almost everyday and as the level starts to diminish and get smaller so does my smile, but then I remember I can always get another one. =)
