MAC STUDIO SCULPT FOUNDATION

#fiftyshades Beauty Shoot

#fiftyshades I’ve read the first book, it was ok… I haven’t, as yet, booked to see the film – BUT I did work on a shoot with a subtle (yea right!) nod towards the style. I decided to try out some of the new foundations I’ve added to my kit and MAC Studio Sculpt SPF15 Foundation is a winner for a flawless complexion.

COVERAGE & APPLICATION: MAC Studio Sculpt (RRP £25.00) is nearly a full coverage foundation yet has a slight dewy finish. There is none of the fancy Colour Correcting elements so you definitely have to get colour matched at a MAC Counter or Store – beware though you will definitely buy more goodies when you are there lol!

I’ve applied it with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush (RRP £11.99) in a circular, blending motion to get an even finish and coverage. On Nina, at the shoot I added slightly more to the under eye area with my finger tips to use it as a concealer.

Another standout feature are the lips – come back early next week and I’ll add a tutorial on the application for the Top Shop Lip Bullet… For now, check out how much fun we had behind the scenes.

ILLAMASQUA LIPSTICK SANGERS

Illamasqua Lipstick in Sangers

Stop searching for the ‘Perfect Red Lipstick’ and buy Illamasqua Lipstick in Sangers I’ve used it on all the below shoots and it it amazing! I hope you agree it suits all the different skin tones and colourings?

The Illamasqua Lipsticks in my kit seem to be Matt, very pigmented and dry to apply direct from the stick. I try buffing my lips first to get an even application rather than it cracking as it goes on. Some of my favourites below…

I was hoping I had used the shade Maneater, perfect for Valentines Day or a hint towards the long awaited film 50 Shades of Grey but I’ll cover that next week :) Karen x
