Black, Iridescent glitter and Baby Oil -Lip Art

 

 

Test 1 experimenting with different shades of surfaces and the effect it has on a mixture of baby oil and iridescent glitter. Really pleased with the result of black lipstick + baby oil on the lip (top left & right). Seems to photograph really well next to direct sunlight. Just as pleased with the way Sophie Lobban has photographed the bottom two images but the iridescent 'gooey' mixture needs more development and the black lip appears too 'perfect'.

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer



The Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer is one of the most talked about Primers out there
It is also highly recommended by most make-up artist and now I know why!

First impressions of the product was the texture of the product
This primer leaves skin feeling velvety and matte- without drying my skin at all
I could not see any difference once I applied a layer of primer onto my skin after my moisturiser (as directed)
but once I applied my RIMMEL Wake Me Up Foundation on top of the primer
I could see the real difference, as pictured below...
Left: Moisturiser only Right: Moisturiser, Primer, Foundation
My main reason for using a primer is to conceal the large pores that mainly appear around my nose 
The grapeseed and green tea infused formula helps soften my large pores
ready for my foundation to glide on smoothly on top ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer claims to 'fill in fine lines and pores' 
so it's great for people with uneven, rough textured skin. I highly recommend it!

It can also be applied to smooth fine lines- esp under the eyes 
It is an oil free formula so I apply it onto my t-zone area to make sure my make-up stay on longer
Sometimes, I like to apply it all over my face as it prevents my foundation sticking to dry patches
and also cause the primer leaves my skin feeling smooth and silky like a baby's butt!

I bought mine from Boots  for £12.50 for a 12 ml travel sized tube
Perfect for first time users!
