Have you ever wanted to re-create a makeup look that was created by a professional? The most crucial part is setting the base… when you have the right base the rest is easy. Always start with a good quality primer and concealer… tip always work your concealer in with your fingers to access all the right spots! Follow that by applying the right foundation for your skin type for instance LaGlam Minerals 2in1 powder foundation for normal/oily skin and LaGlam Minerals LumiGlow cream foundation for normal/dry skin types. Recognising your skin type is very important! Remember that your foundation should not give you “colour” your foundation should be the exact colour as your skin tone, always add your colour by using blushes, bronzers and highlighters. Depending on the kind of contour/ highlight you want to achieve you can either chose to do these using darker and lighter shades of foundations either cream or powder? I highly recommend LaGlam Minerals “Copacabana” from the 2in1 mineral power foundation range as the most AMAZING contour! Alternatively use bronzers and highlighters, map your face out and apply in the right areas i.e. contour under the cheek bone and highlight on top of the cheekbone. Once you have your base to perfection chose your look, either day or night will vary how you chose to do your eyes, lips and cheeks. You may want to go dramatic with a smokey eye or just add some mascara for a day time look like this one pictured here.

Ever wondered why cosmetic ranges even had a setting powder, I mean what’s the point? Well a good setting powder in my opinion can make all the difference, particularly if you have an oily skin type. Basically it’s to keep your foundation on your face!! No matter whether you prefer a cream foundation or a liquid foundation setting them is key to keeping them put. Everyone’s skin produces natural oils and that combined with weather can cause your foundation to “slide” and can leave you bare faced sometimes by lunch time. By using a setting powder this will help ensure that your foundation whether powder, cream or liquid will stay intact and helps to eliminate shine, buff it on over your foundation to set your makeup for long wear. A good quality setting powders offer a soft satin finish on the skin and also helps to soften fine lines and enhance features with its natural, sheer & translucent appearance while keeping oil at bay!
LaGlam Minerals Bridal Veil Setting Powder is a feather-light finish that adds a sheer touch veil to your skin. LaGlam Minerals Bridal Veil is an especially good product for those with an oily complexion it gently absorbs oils keeping your face shine free and flawless and looking as good as it did when you first applied!
LaGlam Minerals has all of you beauties covered no matter what skin type or tone! LaGlam Minerals provides many options for every woman with three foundation types to choose from and available in six different shades.

Winter makeup is warm and adds colour to lift the face through warm plum or deep red lipstick, this year we will also see brown tones making a comeback not only on the eyes but lips too as the trend moves towards earthy, natural tones.
We must also remember to care for our skin during the cooler months when our skin in exposed to the elements and can become dehydrated. Using a cream foundation is key for a hydration boost and one with sunscreens is great for day to day as we’re still exposed to UV rays during winter but particularly for those on the ski slopes! This along with a highlighter or illuminate should give you a gorgeous winter glow.
A good quality lip primer is also essential to hydrate, pop one in your bag for a mid day touch up to boost your lip shade and condition!

So I think we can officially call 2017 the year of the highlighted features… so I guess you have tried every highlighter and illuminator there is on the market? Pressed powder form, loose dust form, gold tones, pink tones, yellow tones? Well the new one that is fast becoming all the rage is cream formulas. Now I know that it’s not some new invention and yes they have been around for years in cream form but over the last couple of months sales from cream highlighters have skyrocketed! This has us asking why now? I can speak for myself that once I love a product it is pretty darn hard for me to switch! I love a good old traditional style pressed powder illuminate but I must say that over the last couple of weeks I have put down the brush and powder and tried the new trend cream formulas! What did I think…well surprisingly I loved it! The creamy formula that LaGlam Minerals ‘Chandelier’ cream highlighter has is second to none, truly it is an amazing consistency. I find that on a busy morning rush to work day it is easier and quicker to use…plus is travel friendly when I’m running late. I find that blending is no trouble at all and the creaminess of the finish is to die for and grabs the light perfectly on my skin. All in all I can’t promise that my days of using my powder illuminator are gone for good but for the mean time I do highly suggest trying a cream formula highlighter I’m sure you will be pleasantly surprised!
