This Year’s (2015) face makeup trend is healthy glowing fresh skin; think your skin but better! This look paired with natural brows, nude eyes, rosy cheeks, and a natural lip or bright color lip (pat brights onto lip). We are done with the overdone! Leave the caked on makeup, extremely etched on brows, and the extreme highlighting and contouring, to the lovely drag queens. Today’s Everyday Makeup = Fresh, Healthy, Glowing, and Youthful.
(Tip- Always apply makeup to clean and well moisturized skin.)
The trend is a good skincare routine and fresh makeup. Laneige also do a range of skincare, but the BB Cushion is my focus today! Laneige BB Cushion come in light, medium, and dark. It is a liquid in compact form, so it is easy to carry for touch-ups or travel. Light to medium coverage and it covers hyper-pigmentation.(Adding a concealer of your choice onto spots or stubborn redness beforehand is helpful for persons that need more coverage without having to use a full coverage foundation.) To apply, pat onto face, apply to one half of the face then the other. It has a cooling effect on the skin, due to the sponge you get with the BB cushion, which is awesome for application. (Many BB cushion now have a cooling effect or come with a sponge that has a cooling effect.) It feel comfortable on the skin, it wears beautifully throughout the day and it doesn’t go all patchy. (I suggest blotting papers and or a powder tend to become oily at the end of the day.) Geared toward more for mature (anti-aging) and dry skin types, though I believe all skin types could work with this product. (If you have oily skin, blot skin with a tissue or blotting papers before applying BB Cushion, or apply a primer that helps with oil control. Blot or lightly set BB Cushion with your choice powder in your oily areas.) The skins finish is a beautiful healthy fresh glow that looks youthful. (Optional- Let BB cushion sit for a few minutes before setting T-zone with a light dusting of powder.) The Laneige BB Cushion $34 at Target and comes with a refill compact. (This product may have a slight scent but it does not linger.)
