These days we often find ourselves in front of the phone camera, whether it’s for a family photo or for our social media postings. And that means our makeup needs to be on point, in real life and for the camera! Here are some easy makeup steps to ensure you are camera-ready at all times.
Brighten That Glow
Get a more natural, healthy glow with YSL Touche Éclat All Over Brightening Pen. Like a magic wand, the Touche Éclat pen instantly brightens, smooths, and perfects your complexion with a natural, luminous finish. Infused with Hyaluronic Acid to improve hydration, its light reflecting, micro-pearl formula highlights your best features without any of the shimmer or glitter. The easy to use on-the-go brush tip lets you create a natural look – it’s your skin but better!
Minimise Those Pores
Do you get paranoid everytime you take a selfie and swipe on an Instagram filter? The good news is that those days are in the past when you have a good face primer. Benefit POREfessional primer quickly minimises the appearance of pores and fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup. The translucent formula contains a vitamin E derivative known to protect skin from free radicals.
Hide Those Dark Circles
Dark under eye circles will betray us all the time in photos by telling the world how little we actually managed to sleep. For that extra coverage, go with a creamy, blendable formula like Bobbi Brown’s Under Eye Corrector in Porcelain Bisque. The power of this little pot of pigmented cream is undeniable as it instantly neutralises discolouration and layers perfectly under concealer. The result? You look super awake and healthy – before you’ve applied any other products.
Set Your Makeup
Whether you have dry or oily skin, the humidity of our weather can get the best of every complexion. But no worries as a makeup setting spray is just what you need! These mists keep your makeup locked in while protecting your skin from environmental damages. A favourite among beauty enthusiasts is Clarins Fix Make-up. This light and refreshing mist sets makeup and gives longer-lasting hold. Enriched with aloe vera and allantoin, it instantly moisturises and soothes the skin while invigorating grapefruit extract and organic rose water scent provide a continuous sense of well-being.
Say No To Shine
Everyone wants a glow, but nobody wants an oily shine. Translucent loose powder helps give your complexion a soft-focus and perfect finish with no added weight. M.A.C Cosmetics Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder is a silky finishing powder that provides an invisible way to set makeup and reduce shine. Available in one universal colour that suits all shades, you can wear over makeup or on bare, moisturised skin for a velvety smooth finish.
