How to get the look:
This is one of the biggest trends this season – Fresh Face.
1) Start with a clean and well moisturized face. Only use concealer where it’s needed. Or if you really want to use a foundation, get a light one like a BB-cream.
2) Put a bit of highlighter on the cheek bones, followed by a tiny but of shading underneath the cheek bones. My favorite is Tom Ford highlight and shading palette 01.
3) On the eyelid I used a brown cream eyeshadow from MAC called Groundwork, blend this on the eyelid with a blending brush. I love Paula Dorff’s. Brush the eyebrows with a eyebrow gel, I used Lancome.
4) Finish of with a lipbalm on the lip.

Their line includes foundations, finishing powders, concealers, blushers, bronzers, eyeshadows, eyeliners and lipglosses.

What do I think? My favorite of the products I’ve used was the eyeshadows. They’ve got great pigments and beautiful colors. Another favorite was the mascara, easy to apply and separates the lashes, also great to layer for a intense voluminous effect.
