BECCA’s Stick Foundation rocks my world…

The ultimate skin savior, creating the illusion of flawless skin by evening out skin tone and lightly concealing blemishes. A unique balance between maximum sun protection (SPF 30+) and long lasting wear.

  • The soft, creamy texture allows a totally controllable level of coverage
  • The non-powdery formulation is suitable for most skin types (including ultra-sensitive) and provides sheer to medium, natural looking coverage
  • Doubles as a sheer under-eye concealer
  • Contains broad spectrum SPF 30+ to protect against over 96% of both UVA and UVB rays
  • Contains antioxidant vitamins A, D, and E, which help to increase collagen renewal and the skin’s moisture holding capacity
  • Can be used all over the face (including the under eye area) or only where further coverage is required.
  • Use over Luminous Skin Colour or BECCA Primers and set with Fine Loose Finishing Powder for a water-resistant, long-lasting finish.
  • Use Foundation Brush #18, Foundation/Concealer Brush #58, or Multi-Use Brush #59 for an ultra-sheer, even and quick application.

I think the reason I love this stick foundation so much, is because I’m really NOT a foundation person. I don’t like the feeling of having foundation on all over my face. With this – I can put it on the areas I need to – without having to cover my whole face. I have sun spots right in my t-zone, so this foundation is a perfect fit for me. It comes in a great compact size, so it fits perfectly in my purse!

Love it!!

Check out Topshop’s NEW 70′s inspired makeup line!

Check out Topshop’s newest makeup collection, a line inspired by 70′s beauty! The collection features a mix of light colors, baby pink and light yellow, and deep reds and bronze tones. The combination is meant to evoke the look and feel of the 70′s.

The line, which is encased in tortoiseshell packaging and stamped with cutwork geometric shapes, includes a blush/bronzer duo, matte eyeshadow palette, an inky-black mascara, kohl eyeliner, and nude-colored lipsticks and lip liner. Something about the makeup feels very ’70s Faye Dunaway, with defined eyes accompanied by soft, neutral tones.

Though we love it all, we’re especially crazy about theĀ Glow illuminator, an iridescent highlighter. The dewifying cream, which creates a subtle, pretty sheen that’s not overly shimmery, can be applied anywhere from the cheek bones to beneath the brow bone to right above the cupids bow.

The limited editionĀ Smoke & Mirrors Autumn Winter Collection is available now at Topshop.com, $18 – $25.

I love the look of this line! I MUST TRY IT!

Gwyneth Platrow: “I can’t do my own makeup”

Rich people problems. :)

In Gwyneth Paltrow’s latest Goop Newsletter, the Oscar-winner opened up that she cannot do her own makeup, and shares tips with how to do your own makeup.

Believe it or not, I am terrible at doing my own makeup. I’m decent at doing it for a friend, but when it comes to my own face, I never get it right. I have been wanting a step by step lesson for ages so I asked my London makeup artist, Emma Lovell, to show me how. One of my gorgeous school mum friends from my son Mosey’s class agreed to be the model (thank you, Kate!), and I learned so much. I hope it’s helpful for some of you!

Love,

She gives a really great tutorial for how to prep your skin before makeup, how to apply daytime makeup, and then how to transform that into evening makeup. Check out the tutorial here!
