TRAVEL BEAUTY – Shoutout to H & M Make-up by Lara Livingstone
Ok so talking about make-up on a travel gadgets website is slightly unusual, but if you want to look fabulous on some of those gadgets, it pays to be at the top of your make-up game.
Now I don’t usually one to signal out a brand, but hats off to the amazing H & M. Due to their rather wonderful sale at the moment, I was able to dive into their make-up for the first time, at a purse-friendly price.
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised!
My favorite and I have to say performance-wise and color match wise, it is EPIC!
Is the FLAWLESS CONCEALER
Not only was it the exact color match to me, this glorious liquid concealer, but the oomph into to my grey morning face by flawlessly erasing my dark circles and correcting those like flaws I have grown so used to seeing on my face. Its durable, moisturizing formula enriched with vitamin E gave my skin a clean, polished finish. Apply alone or after your face primer and foundation.
Next up is the PERFECTIONIST FINISHING POWDER – A featherweight, silky powder with a perfecting natural finish. It fixed the concealer effortlessly, lasted well and didn’t irritate my combination skin.
New innovation (well to me anyway) CUSTOM COLOR DROPS – The last time I had a truly bespoke foundation, was back in the day when Prescriptives makeup was being pushed big time in the UK and was more affordable. I acquired the mother of all bespoke foundation habit until one of my best friends sent me some drugstore comparables, which made my purse happier.
So the aim with the Custom Color Drops is that you blend it with your foundation to create the perfect shade for you. Start with one drop and add more as needed to create your own customized shade.
So did it work for me – glad to say yes!
CREAM FUSION EYE COLOUR – I adore strong eye colors and this cream-to-powder eye shadow with a lovely mousse texture was right on the money for me. The shade popped on my skin tone, lasted really well and got me three compliments in the space of a few hours.
The crazy thing with our make-up routines is how locked in and comfortable we get with them and the products we use.
So let me pose you a question – when last did you go through your make up bag and throw away stuff?
Yes you heard me….clear it out and replace with new stuff….like RIGHT NOW!
If it’s been awhile since you decluttered your make-up bag, you might want to consider diving into the wonderful world of H & M makeup.
