How To Get Photo Perfect Skin

Happy New Years eve everyone!! I feel a little weird saying "photo perfect" but I don't really know what else to call it, so we'll just go with it haha! For sooo long I couldn't understand why my make-up didn't look as good in photos as I thought it did in real life, so I decided to figure out why! What I found out was there's different make-up products that will all help to make your face look really nice when that flash goes off!

I'm gonna write a little under this photo about technique and application, but if that kinda thing bores you I just added the most important tips to this photo;

That's me and my friends as you probably guessed lol! I do my make-up like that every time I go out-and here's how!

Firstly I use any ole moisturiser I have lying around. I always find you need a lot during winter because that pesky cold air just likes to dry up your face even more!

When that's dried a little I use my lighter foundation on my whole face (I used Loreal True Match here), even the places where you'd apply concealer.

Next, I take my darker foundation (Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish) and I use it around the sides of the face, always remembering to blend into the neck.

Now it's time for concealer and highlighter! To contour I take my dark concealer (I'm not sure what brand this is anymore!) and use it on the sides of the nose, and on my cheekbones. Then I fill in all the areas I'd normally conceal with Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer, and making sure to add a line running down my nose for highlight.

Then blend blend blend!! I like a little sparkle too and I really recommend the Inglot Sparkling Dust. You can read my review here if you like!

Happy New Years eve to everyone again, and I'll be back later on with an eyeshadow look you can try out tonight!! Have an amazing day 'til then!

  1. Great tips! I really have to give contouring and highlighting a try. I'm unsure of how dark the dark foundation should be for me though.

    1. Aw thank you! I think the dark foundation can be a lot darker than your normal skin tone if you like! I think it adds a really nice contour effect
