For many years my go to product has been the Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheers, to get that beautiful natural glow. It is amazing but I’ve been in search of a product that would give me the same look but in a pressed powder finish. I’ve finally found it!!! BECCA shimmering Skin Perfector has now become my holy grail for glow and highlight in addition to my Fluid Sheers. In the picture above I have the ‘Rose Gold’ to the left and the ‘Opal’ Skin perfector to the right. You can achieve a beautiful glow with both. I tend to use the Rose Gold for more of a bronze goddess look and add the Opal for a nice touch of highlight. There are four different colors you can choose from, and they are all equally beautiful. I am hooked and I highly recommend this as it is soft, creamy and blends right into the skin.
tip: I add a touch of the Opal on my cupids bow and a touch to the middle of my bottom lip for a ‘fuller’ look. Pair it with Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation and put on your favorite mascara and you will look effortlessly beautiful.
The fun part of being a makeup artist is that I get to play with products. This Vice3 Palette by Urban Decay is my new favorite obsession. You will fall in love with the 20 velvety-pigmented shadows. This palette has a mix of different finishes (matte, satin, metallic and sparkle) that will help you create any look you desire. I know that some of the colors might be intimidating but trust me when I say that anyone can use this. MUST HAVE!
ps. not only is the pigment amazing, it also has very little to no fall outs.
As a makeup artist, I get asked all the time what foundation is my favourite. By far, I would recommend Armani’s Luminous Silk foundation to everyone. It has a silky smooth finish and glides on seamlessly. Almost all my clients mention it when I use it to do their makeup–that it provides a seriously flawless effect and feels as light as silk. It’s a bit on the pricier side but foundation is one of the items you should splurge on.Trust me, this foundation will change your life. Pick it up from the new Sephora on Robson. You will absolutely LOVE it!
