Hey! ShanLee here, and it’s all about makeup. So let’s get down to the cream of the matter…
When we choose our makeup we always go for the one with great coverage, not too heavy, shimmery or oily. Various skin types call for different forms of coverage, therefore it is important that we learn a bit about our skin before we go makeup shopping.
The rave on the street is all about the L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Collection, and the reviews have been amazing! Think about maintaining that freshly done matte and cool look for 24hrs! No shine; and light weight. The high water content of the L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation glides on the smooth and absorbs oil and sweat, keeping you beautiful all day.
Skin types include sensitive, dry and oily. You will even hear people say they have combination skin, which means they have a combination of the various skin types on various areas of their skin. Therefore it is very important to prep your face for makeup application. Cleansing the face and neck, then toning and moisturizing are crucial to protect the skin. The type of cleanser, moisturizer and toner you use should be compatible with the type of skin you have. If you need to be sure, a certified esthetician would be able to tell you this after an assessment.
For bold and boastful eyes, use L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow Crayon or Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow for intense and pigmented eye colour. And for on point lines, use Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner or Never Fail Eyeliner.
The Pro-Matte Foundation gives you a demi-matte, air light textured finish for up to 24 hrs. If you have dry or combination skin, be sure to properly prep your face before application. Apply the Pro-Matte Foundation to your face by pressing the product into your face using your fingers, a sponge or brush; rather than rubbing it onto the skin. This ensures better application and a more even coverage.
After foundation application, apply L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte 16hr Powder. This Pro-Matte formula promises never to fall flat or become “cakey”. Simply apply with a powder brush, a thin layer starting from the front of the face such as the nose, forehead, chin (T-zone) and cheeks; then work it out to the outer edges of the face. Follow up with L’Oreal Visible Lift Colour Blush for a healthy glow on your cheeks.
Line your lips with your favourite L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lip Liner and apply evenly to achieve your desired tone. On top of the liner, add an even coat of Pro Last Lip colour for long lasting transfer resistant colour for up to 24 hrs.
Mist your face with the Infallible Pro Spray and Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray to keep the freshness and beauty of your makeup for hours, preventing smudging and creasing. Hit the streets and watch out for the paparazzi because there’s a celebrity in town! |P|
