Friday is finally here and I’m guessing a lot of you are itching to go glam for the weekend.
So how do you do that without risking looking like Pennywise’s angelic, long-lost twin? (See Clown Face No Mo for some background on this 🙂
You get your hands on Guerlain’s Lingerie de Peau Invisible Skin Fusion Foundation.
Because it gives full coverage with a dewy finish for a very hollywoodesque effect. On top of that it gives SPF protection too (20) so you don’t need to slap on sunblock under or over this.
Like my earlier recommendation clinique (which gives a matte, full coverage au naturale finish) if you are using this you can lay off concealer to hide the uneven skin tone – it takes care of it. You will however, need to use concealer for your eyes. My next post is on the concealer that complements this foundation specifically so keep a watch out for that 🙂
What bowled me over about this product is that I don’t need to use blush or my contouring essentials – it sounds strange, but there is something in the composition that gives the impression of contouring/tinge of color on your cheeks (at least with me). So if you are using this in a daytime setting or feeling awfully lazy, you can lay off the blush if and feign the au naturale effect 😉
I use 04 Beige Moyen (my skin tone is pale-brown) and dished out what I remember to be around 80 euros at the time (this was inclusive of taxes -online it is listed for a significantly less price of 61 dollars). Haven’t seen this in Pakistan yet so you’ll have to order online or call in a favor from relatives/friends living abroad 🙂
For the glam face, contour and blush as you regularly do (see my posts Blush Me Pretty and Shady Brands be Fine Cause they Got the Shine?) and top it up with red lippie (see my post “Free Tack Pass). For the eyes, go all out with a fun shade. See Meanie Greenie Wednesday for ideas- but remember if you are going for colored eye shades , do stick to a nude lippie! If you are sticking to the red lippie, stick to gold tinge on your lids and a thick application of eye-liner and two coats of mascara.
Before I go, I’d like to ask all you ladies to have at least three types of foundation at hand at any given time, is the variation each type can give to your final look – this is really important because no matter how well you do your makeup, people will get bored seeing your “same pretty face’ every day 🙂
There we go girls you’re all set for friday now 🙂 Keep an eye out for my upcoming posts on another favorite concealer of mine, recommendations for daily wear lipsticks, and more fun eyeshadows.
Whew thats a lot to do 🙂
Have a Happy Friday ladies! And until next time, make up well.
