The face at the top of this post, is my usual face. I do wear glasses most of the time, but i do have daily lenses. As you see i do have not a bad skin for a 51 year old woman. A few wrinkles beneath the eyes, a few lines on the forehead. I do have slight red cheeks, which i don’t mind too much.
This post shows how i prepare my skin for a full make up. Which is something i hardly ever do. And i mean really that. But i did want to try it out myself. Usually, i use some of the foundation on my chin and cheeks. A bit of concealer and the powder to finish it. Both are quite new, so they haven’t been in my routine that long.
I am interested in getting a primer. I haven’t done any research yet. Maybe a smashbox one, i did read some good reviews on those. But developments are going fast. And i do not want to many silicones really, so i should read more about ingredients.
My foundation is nearly empty. So i do need to read more about these too! It’s a shame Nars isn’t sold here in the Netherlands, i’m really interested in the Sheer Glow Faundation. The Estee Lauder Double Wear seems pretty good too. But as i said, it’ll be quite a task to find the right one.
After i made all the photos for this post, i rushed to the bathroom and removed everything! I was happy to have my normal face back. I would only use this sort of make up for very rare occasions, not for daily life.
