I do not know about you, but I find intricate makeup looks quite hard when you wear glasses. You see, I am partially sighted and colour blind, but I love makeup! That is why my makeup looks are more focused on keeping it simple, blended with a nice lip.
I pay a lot of attention to my base and aim for a glowy, natural look.
in order to achieve a lovely look, I get my skin prepped. I use my serums and moisturisers and make sure that my skin is nice and smooth.
One of the foundations I have been using quite a lot and love because it is very dewy, is the Nyx Born to Glow foundation. I think this foundation is not getting enough TLC online and if you have not tried it, you really should.
This foundation is a semi thick liquid. Not too runny, but not too thick. It goes on the skin effortlessly and looks like skin. You do not look like you are plasterd. I love it.
Another foundation I have been using and loving, is the Elf CC cream. A CC cream is not exactly a foundation. It has some coverage, but not too much. I think this one works well to correct pigmentation and make your skin look really nice and natural as well.
Out of the two, I think that if you are going for a dewy look, check out the Nyx one, if you want a good coverage CC cream, go for the Elf one. Both are around 10 pounds and have good lasting power. I would say around 8 hours. My skin is quite sensitive, but it has handled both foundations well.
Bronzer and Blusher
Moving on from foundation, I use a powder bronzer (currently using the Hourglass Ambient powder) and then I use blush. I always wear blush. I use my foundation to cover redness and then blush to bring back colour! Ironic, I know.
I keep my eyes simple. I usually use one shade all over the lid.
Lipstick is where I go all cray cray. The bright lip is what I usually go for. Drawing attention to my lips is what I do when I wear my glasses. My favourite lippies are from Max Factor (the Elixir line) and from Clinique (Pop)
Get ready with me: Glowy Look
Some background. I am 45 with redness on my cheeks and some pigmentation. My skin is dry and sensitive. I filmed a glowy get ready with me video on my channel. If that is something you are interested in, please check my channel out and maybe even subscribe to it.
