Here is Pen To Paper’s guide to flawless and fresh-faced Spring beauty.
Now that Spring is upon us, it’s time to shake up your beauty routine. If you want to accomplish flawless, yet dewy and natural looking skin – these are the essentials you need.
Firstly, Red Earth has just released it’s brand new collection of luxe Professional Makeup Brushes – and they are nothing short of amazing! I rarely use brushes to apply my foundation, but Red Earth’s specialised brush head means that my foundation glides on seamlessly, evenly and helps smooth lines, creating a more natural make-up look.
My favourite foundation of the moment is Chanel’s Perfection Lumiere Long-Wear Flawless Fluid SPF 10. It feels so smooth on your skin, lasts all day and can be built up for more coverage, so it never looks ‘caked’ on.
Using Red Earth’s Foundation Brush with the Chanel Perfection Lumiere, finish off your base with Red Earth’s Secret Potion. An illuminating skin fluid that creates a truly radiant complexion. Apply to your cheekbones, eyebrow bone, under the eyes and even on your collarbone, the illuminating pearl particles will reflect light off your skin, for a wonderfully healthy glow. I use Pearl (01).
To set the foundation and illuminating fluid, use Chanel compact powder with Red Earth’s Powder Brush – it allows just the right amount of powder to be deposited on the skin, for even and smooth application.
Then there’s my favourite blush of all-time (so much of a favourite that I get shipped from NY – thanks to my wonderful editor, Angelique Max in Manhattan) – The Balm’s Hot Mama. Swept across the cheek bones with Red Earth’s super soft Blush Brush, Hot Mama gives you an equal measure of shimmer and bronzed rose colour.
And finally, finish off with a slick of Gorgeous Cosmetic’s Glam Lash mascara in black, Mac’s eyebrow pencil in Lingering and Red Earth’s super shimmery and highly pigmented Lip Lustre Multidimensional Lip Glass in Crimson Flicker, for a flirty and fun Spring time look!
