Makeup: Celebrity edition

Celebrities have been featured in advertising for cosmetics for years, and now they are even launching their own brands or lines.

I apologise in advance for the photos, the lighting situation is not ideal at that time of day! Both of them start with me doing my usual base routine as seen here. Sometimes I use a BB cream instead but currently I’m too dark for my garnier one and too light for my Maybelline one, so foundation it is! I also always fill in my brows, using one of the techniques I outlined in my previous post on eyebrows. Look number one is almost no-make up make up, with the exception of the […]
