Clarisonic: all in one (soft, clean, fresh, gentle glowing skin)

I recently purchased this small device and I absolutely love it. I should have gotten one years ago, works fabulous! I don’t know how I lived all this years without it. I was hesitant to buy it because of the price, but after one use I found my skin to be softer and brighter than ever! I have been using the Сlarisonic face wash that comes in the box and I love it!

SEEKING THE PERFECT MAKEUP. MY STEP BY STEP EXPERIENCE (4-6)

STEP 4 –concealer: I suggest you use the  Perfecting stick concealer Long Lasting от Shiseido. It contains a high amount of pigment, from where I stand it’s a lucky formula that is efficient in camouflaging discoloration, unevenness, spots and other flaws. It has a prominent creamy consistency but does not generate that greasy look we all hate so much, moreover it blends seamlessly into the skin. If the skin under your eyes is very dry-you need to hydrate it very well before applying the concealer. And more: if you have visible wrinkles under your eyes-the greasy effect might occur, so you should use this concealer on your face,  while those who have relatively smooth skin under their eyes can  apply it on that area as well.

 

STEP 5. After applying the concealer, we will use the concealer highlighter Highliter Concealer (например производства It Cosmetics) for the strobing effect. This concealer is quite

 

 

dense, but if you use a foundation sponge to apply it, it will spread well on the needed areas. This is how it’s done: apply under the eyebrow, from the middle to the end of the brow bone, but do not step on the eyelid. Then, draw a thin line on the nose, starting from the nasal bridge up to the nose tip, and then along the centerline over the upper lid. Then close your eyes and apply a bit of cream on the inner corner of the eye using a very thin brush (you can advance a bit along the lower lid if you want to), afterwards do a stroke downwards from the temple along the cheek bone to the nasolabial folds (you can also apply a stroke on the corners of your mouth on the middle of your chin).

STEP  6. After the highlighting concealer apply e.l.f. High Definition Undereye Setting Powder right under your eyes (light diffusing powder that will secure the highlighting concealer).

Seeking the perfect make-up. My step by step experience (1-3)

Step 1. Apply DAX Cashmere Secret Glam Smoothing and Illuminating Base Primer. It’s a gel that will have the foundation spread evenly over it, while the skin remains smooth and silky.

Step 2. Apply the BB cream (I suggest using Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB cream SPF 25 от Jane Iredale (Jane Iredale Glow time BB cream)). This cream has a different approach from traditional color moisturizers, with upsides that are worth using it. This cream is quite thick. It is important to apply it correctly: if you apply too much, because of its thickness, you might end up with a chalky and sticky appearance.  But if you apply it the right way-it will provide you with a full, excellent coverage, smooth, velvety texture and moisturizing effect (apply a bit of cream on three fingers, rub your fingers to warm up the cream and apply to face by dotted movements of the fingers).

Step 3.  After having applied the BB cream, go ahead and apply the Mineral Wear Cushion Foundation from Physicians Formula for your finishing touch. It’s a formula containing minerals, soothing plant extracts, smoothing antioxidants and skin nourishing vitamins. All of these will give you moisturizing and brightening effects. It’s also very important that the powder is talc-free.
