Best Loose Powder for Setting Makeup

When it comes to flawless makeup, setting it is just as important as the foundation you use and your application. If you have oily skin you’re most likely already doing it but if you have dry skin you’re probably skipping it for fear of it making your skin flaky.

They won’t dry you out or make you produce more oil. They will leave your skin looking flawless and extend the wear of your coverage. In my opinion, these are THE best face powders for setting your makeup.  Continue Reading

Before I get into it I want to say that there is a lot of debate over the effectiveness of sunscreen in powder form. I personally would never recommend using it as your stand alone sun protection, rather I suggest using it in conjunction with regular sun protection to maximise coverage and really safeguard yourself from sun damage.  Continue Reading

Getting a flawless finish with makeup is not so easy, even for many seasoned professional makeup artists. As I have always said, the best way to get flawless makeup is with a flawless canvas, but we can’t all be blessed with the skin of Emma Stone (damn her milky clear skin!). Laura Mercier is a makeup brand that believes all good makeup starts with flawless base makeup, so their complexion products are some of the best in the business.

Today I am going to show you my attempt at creating the ‘Flawless Face’ as per Laura Mercier’s 4-step technique. Continue Reading
