I have to confess to being a no foundation girl. I very occasionally resort to a light smattering and this has only been due to creating a base for other makeup. I really don't suit foundation mainly because I feel it ages me. I'm not very good at doing grown up!
Due to moving with the times I have tried a few primers over the last year or too. But I have to say none impressed me and I stuck to my MAC strobe cream mixed with a tiny amount of foundation when I wanted to created a seemingly flawless look.
Not any more, I finally succumbed to indifference and broke open a sample primer in desperation that I'd been given nearly two years ago. It has changed my life in more ways than one. I cannot convey how silky smooth it is, how flawless a complexion it gives and equally protects the skin. Best of all my eye make up stays in place.
I'm not normally one for loving a photo taken of me as I'm not usually caught in the right way. Mr MDS has long tormented me with his ability to make me look like a right goof ball every time he takes a photo of me. He got it bang on on new years eve, and so delighted am I that I've sold my photo to the devil and paraded it everywhere.
As a stylist I would say it was the eyes that nailed it! The face and eyes were prepared with Arbonne Makeup Primer and I added a mix of 3 eye shadows from Max Factor, Nars and Dior, then eye liner and mascara. My lips were quite pale and neutral by dabbing with foundation and adding a lip gloss. I know I'm selling the damn stuff but I am in love with the primer it is worth every penny!
