ReallyRee Face of the Day: PPQ Autumn Winter 2012

Yesterday I had loads of fun filming a Get the Look video with Katie Hughes, FashionistA’s makeup artist.

FashionistA was the official makeup partner for the PPQ show at London Fashion Week this season and Katie created a gorgeous expensive looking Hollywood glamour look that perfectly complemented the collection.

Here’s the model look…

New Makeup Post!

This is the makeup I wore to the fab MUA Cosmetics Love Hearts launch. That’s where I got those fabbie nails!

This time I used the Ready-To-Wear Luminous Foundation from FashionistA (stocked at Superdrug) in Shade 1 Nude. It provides an excellent coverage yet looks really natural and glowy. Super happy with that one! The coverage is so good I didn’t need any concealer. Bonus! I have product pics at the end of the post for you.

 

I used a touch of Daniel Sandler’s Watercolour Creme-Rouge Blusher in Hot Pink. It looks so vivid and strong in the palette but it gives the prettiest natural flush. Just gorgeous!

 

I set the base with FashionistA compact powder which is really fine and light. I love the packaging too. It has a fab 360 swivel mirror. Photo to follow.

The eyes are a mix of Burberry, Bourjois and Dior.

 

I used Burberry’s sheer eyeshadow in Almond No 06 over the whole lid. It’s a beautiful matte brown, so fine and easy to blend, and it’s really buildable. I am totally obsessed with Burberry’s presentation and packaging. See the photo at the end of the post – you will love!

I hi-lighted with Bourjois’ brand new Light Eyeshadow in Shade 03 (shimmery pink). These shadows are highly concentrated in reflective shimmers, and they are twice as shimmery as regular Bourjois little round pots.

 

I also used Bourjois’ new Kohl and Contour Shadow and Light Pencil in shade 11, Noir and Neige. I used the black along the upper lash line and the shimmery white in the inner corners. Great pencil!

I used my mascara of the moment Diorshow New Look. It’s amaze!

 

Lips are back to FashionistA again. This is the Plumping Lip Glaze in Coral Couture shade 4. It’s gorge! Not too tingly, smells yummy and is super pretty. Thumbs up!

 

And that I think is it! Have you tried any of these goodies?

I Met My Match With Clinique

I went to a gorgeously fab Clinique event last week. It was a real treat! It was all about finding my perfect foundation and after a fun consultation (fun because I got to talk about MEEEE!) my lovely Clinique expert applied the foundation of choice to one side of my face (right in the pic). What do you think?

I was pretty impressed. This was Clinique’s Superbalanced Makeup in Alabaster (27). I was then evened up and we moved on to my next half and half comparison.  This time it was concealer! You can see on the right side of the pic a real flawless look under my eye. Wonderful!
This is the Clinique Airbrush concealer in Neutral Fair (04). It’s very illuminating.

We then selected my perfect powder (which is Clinique Blended Face Powder in Invisible Blend 20) and learnt a brilliant trick to minimise pores (I’m totally obsessed with my pores!!).

 

You tip a small amount of loose powder into the palm of your hand, then rub it in with your finger and then press onto any areas where the pores seem enlarged. Brush away any excess with a clean brush and hey presto!!!!…. perfect skin!! Look!!

I then did my obligatory toilet shots so I could show you the perfection in a different light. I just can’t help myself!

This is the first time I have used a Clinique foundation and I am certainly impressed. It’s definitely worth taking the time to talk to the counter experts to find the formulas that suit your skin type and wish list best.
I’m happy!!
As a side, I am also loving Clinique’s new Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator. It is fab fab fab for dry winter skin (and comes in a pretty pink pot!).
