Stila says that this is a serum that color corrects, brightens, primes and nourishes the skin. I have a very uneven skin tone and it doesn’t completely make my skin flawless but it does take down the redness and brightens. I also look for a lot of moisture in my primer without being oily (because I have oily skin) and this makes my skin feel so plump and moisturized. On top of all that makeup lays perfectly overtop of it. It it my perfect primer.
Recently I have been obsessed with the luminous glow and strobing trend. I heard many good things about the L’oréal Magic Lumi Primer, so I decided to try it out myself. When I picked this up I also got the Highlighter (my shade is Ice). I quickly fell in love with these product. I love the look of these products when I use them with nothing else on my face. If I want to go out of the house without a full face of makeup, I will put them on. The primer gives the skin such a natural glow and the highlighter gives definition. These products with mascara gives the skin such a natural clean glowing look, no one will know you have makeup on. And at a drugstore price, what’s better than that?
A month ago I wrote a post here about a 500 point Sephora gift that I got. I ended up loving many things from that box. One of them was the Radiance Bronze Primer. I started to use this in my everyday routine, so I purchased a full bottle. Then this past week I saw the Face Illuminator Powder (which is a limited edition product) and fell in love with that, it is a beautiful hilighter. So, both of these products inspired me to do a “Bronze Summer Glow” post because that is exactly what you get when you use these together. For me, I think the best way to use these products is with my Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer because it has the most natural and lightweight summer look. But, I also use it with my normal foundation as well and it still works.
Make Up Forever came out with 10 primers, some of them are for the texture of the skin and some are for the tone. The one that I decided to try out is the mattifying primer. This stuff feels like glue on the face. It is so mattifying. I do like this product for under my foundation, but I like it more by itself. I have oily skin, so when I don’t put on makeup I like to put this on for a flawless look.
Burberry is my favorite brand, I love the style and everything about it. So I figured that I would try some of their makeup. For the lips I tried a classic red. I love the way the lipstick feels on the lips and the lip gloss is so pigmented and smells so good. I also wanted to try the fresh glow. I love this for the summer because it gives your face a perfect glow. You can either put it on before your foundation or mix it in with your foundation, and it comes in two colors.
