Makeup Look #14: Valentine’s Day in Victoria’s Secret Glow

IMG_6985

Happy Valentine’s Day, ladies! Im sharing a pretty but quick look inspired by the Victoria’s Secret Angels’ glow. I made sure my skin is not tired but using Beyond The Real’s Hyaluronic Mask the night before so my face is very moisturized and then I used the Beauty Diary’s Vitamin-C Brightening Mask for that extra boost! Preparing the skin is extremely important so you can apply lesser makeup and letting youre skin breathe. So anyways, I don’t want to keep you all waiting, so lets jump into it!

Makeup Forever HD Foundation & Full Coverage Concealer

br />
IMG_4035.JPG
Since Fall is already here, I have opted to change up my Chanel Perfection Lumiere foundation into something much more lighter and bearable in Singapore weather. The Makeup Forever HD Foundation has been a crowd favorite ever since it came out and I picked it up out of my curiosity of what is a real HD foundation to skin. It says its an invisible cover for HD cameras and naked to the eye but in a medium – full coverage. I was at first scared to try because I dont want any thick paint over my face but since its MUF, I was convinced that it would be a great foundation and hopefully I will fell in love with it, like how I love their Aqualiner. And indeed, it is such a great foundation. Its light, clears my imperfections, amazing for taking pictures and gentle on my skin. Although it doesnt have any SPF, I don’t mind at all because this foundation is for taking pictures (great for weddings!)  and looking great in person but never to wear too long under the sun. Im a shade 125 which is the best color match I have ever have in a foundation. It costs $42 in a 30 ml glass bottle which isnt cheap at all but I promise you, you wont regret every single penny you spent if you buy this. You can get it here. This is my new fave for special day looks!

So to pair it with, I also got the MUF Full Coverage concealer in 07 after watching Wayne Goss do a demo in his youtube channel. If you don’t know, im quite a freak in terms of covering my dark under eyes. In the high end beauty, this is my new holy grail liquid concealer. It is so easy to blend and set, perfect for my skintone, matte and waterproof, creaseless and just amazing. It costs $32 in a generous 15 ml tube (half a foundation bottle!) which is once again not cheap but definitely youll never go wrong. I either apply it using my fingers, round mini kabuki brush or a moist beauty blender.

Here are some of my photos where I used them both together.

They are such great products that I think everyone should try.

Have you ever tried any HD foundation and concealer?

Makeup Look #3: My Failproof Everyday Look

20140223-224133.jpg

I love, love, love flattering nude makeup looks cause simply its so easy to do and just a little more on the eyes or lips it completely transforms the daytime look to nightout ready! Basically, this is my everyday look for work or date makeup wear with my love.

It just doesnt focus on the eyes that just opens up your beautiful eye color and keeps it feminine, but how the skin looks natural when i wear it during the day or i go a bit more of a medium-full coverage if i would have a long day to night out.

Hope you guys ❤️ it! Let me know!

love,
Louise
