So to those of you who keep a close eye on BeautyinBeta may recognise AlexRocksxo from a set of blog posts Beth and I created (you can see mine here and Beth’s here) and while she is on her honeymoon (which I am very jealous of) she has invited me to do a blog post for her blog, so thank you Beth! Hope you’re having a lovely holiday!
I have been having such awful skin lately, constant breakout leaving tonnes of red scars and it’s pretty crap, my forehead is the worst and I have been looking for some cover up make up that doesn’t look obvious. As I don’t think a cakey face on anyone looks good and especially not me! The products I have picked I have seen reviewed all over the internet for being great natural looking cover ups and I shall be investing in some when I get paid!
I chose the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders because if I use a concealer I want to set it and I have heard so much about these powders, they look so gorgeous and I would love to try some of them! For the same reason as before I chose the Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot powder, a more wallet friendly option that has had great reviews.
To actually cover up the blemishes the first product I thought of was the Nars Creamy Concealer, I have tried the Collection 2000 concealer and I hated it, it was cakey and really obvious, I heard EssieButton talking about this and thought it may be one to try out. To buff in the concealer I chose the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush, another product raved about by EssieButton and I genuinely trust every word that comes out of her mouth, its affordable and looks such great quality. If I wanted a heavier coverage I chose the Mac Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, a heavier coverage but what I have seen of it looks natural and effortless. Slightly pricey but worth it if I can hide this god awful skin.
