I want to Shine Like A Chandelier!

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!

LaGlam Minerals Little Pot Of Contour Magic!

Want to achieve a deep matte contour just like the Kardashians? Let’s be honest, I think half the planet is trying to achieve makeup success like that family! Or maybe they were born with those perfect illusion cheeks… not likely, it’s all in the makeup!

LaGlam Minerals 2in1 powder foundation in shade ‘Copacabana’ is the most perfect matte contour creating deep shade and unlike the “Kardashian” tribe it wont cost you an arm or a leg or a makeup artist every day at the ready! Matte contours are a favourite with professional makeup artists as you avoid that glittery shine in an area that most like to keep as a shade area, use your highlighters and illuminates for that! The best feature in my experience with using this particular product as a matte contouring tool is that it is so easily applied, creating a deeper contour and a sharp shading in the hollows which essentially is that envied shade and light illusion everyone is dying for!

So light and shade you say? With every shade there should be light and this is the product you want to apply to all those feature’s you want to “pop” like upper cheek bones, bridge of the nose, cupids bow, and arch of the brow. Try LaGlam Minerals ‘Chandelier’ cream highlighter for the perfect accompaniment…more on this product later! xx

Get you brows on fleek!

At the moment every girl, everywhere is intensifying their brow looks! Brow care is no longer just about shaping, plucking and waxing… it has evolved into its own beauty routine and rightfully so! Women now want a fuller brow just like those sported on the catwalks of the world -think Cara Delevingne or Kendall Jenner for example! With super models, actresses and teen idols now sporting the fuller brow there has been a surge in the number of brow palettes sold and where do you start right? There are eye pencils which are great to start out with, easy to apply and if your new to brow grooming I suppose it sounds easy enough? Then there is gel! Where do I start?? If you are a beginner I would steer away from gels and this look is by far the most dramatic and defined and takes practise!! Then there is my personal fave the brow shadow kits/palettes, these are a very buildable way to obtain the look that you want! Starting off light underneath the brow to make the shape you want and applying through the brow to intensify your look all while keeping it natural -I love the enhanced natural look of the brow. By using a shadow it allows you to colour your bald spots all while defining the arch, try to find a brow kit that has its own personal angle brush this way you can apply the same way the professionals do!
All in all brows are now the “must-have” makeup product and whatever you feel comfortable using it is worth the purchase! Get you brows on fleek!
