How to Apply Foundation

I have made this short video demonstrating how to apply your foundation to get the best and most natural results. I hope you enjoy! In this Video I have used supercover cream foundation which is a cream mineral formulation great for HD TV and for close up shots.  The results are extremely natural, giving you a clear canvass to apply the rest of your make up on to. Please remember, your foundation is not used to cover blemishes or unwanted markings on your face - that is the job of your concealer, your foundation is used to even your skin tone and to give you a clear canvass to add to. Some people like to make their skin look more tanned or darker than it naturally is - If you apply a foundation that is too dark to achieve this look, your make up will never look natural, and there will always be tell-tale signs around your jaw line, hair line and eyebrows.   You actually need to apply the correct colour foundation and then apply bronzer at the end of your make up to look

The secret behind BB creams

A few days ago I was looking through a magazine when I came across an article on BB creams - I had come across BB (Beauty Balm) creams when working as a cosmetic camouflage consultant so read further. BB creams are basically used in the medical profession to help with healing skin after someone has suffered a trauma - this can be a burn, laser skin surgery or an  operation.

I found myself in Superdrug looking for a moisturising face mask when what should I see but Garnier BB cream on the shelf!.... I brought it!  I knew that this couldn't just be some beauty sc

How to choose the perfect foundation colour to suit your skin tone

Today's video demonstrates how to choose your perfect foundation colour for your skin tone; It really is worth spending the time to get the correct colour foundation for your skin tone - If you always use the correct colour, your make up will always look perfect! Take a good close look at your skin to decide which colour undertone it has - this will be either pink, yellow or blue.  An easy way to tell is that pick undertones will always flush pink during exercise, they are also prone to sunburn.  Yellow undertones tend to tan quite easily and it looks like quite a warm colour.  Blue undertones can be spotted in people with darker skins giving a slightly 'cooler' look. Once you have determined which colour undertone you have, this is the colour foundation that you will need to buy - don't go against your own colour as it won't look right.  I do find that most foundations available at the moment tend to only have a yellow undertone so I suggest that
