First apply the Triple Performing Facial Emulsion moisturiser to the skin. This has added SPF 15 which is especially great particularly for pale girls like me because the one thing I do not leave my house without now is SPF. Straight after applying this, mix a bit of You Rebel Lite, Pore-fessional and Girl Meets Pearl on the back of your hand. The Girl Meets Pearl adds natural looking shimmer and glow and also helps tone down the You Rebel for paley girls like me! You can also use this with the original You Rebel if you’re darker toned. Apply this to the face with a brush smoothing into all areas and finish dabbing a bit of extra Pore-fessional mixed with Stay, Don’t Stray under the eyes to conceal any blemishes. Lisa then finished the look with Coralista blush to bring out the rosiness in my cheeks. I’d never used a coral toned blush before and we both decided it looked gorgeous on me and was a really great Autumnal look – so be brave and try coral blush if you’re pale! Here’s how my skin looked after:
Not a trace of orange, see? Perfect for pale girls once used properly!
She then used the new Christmas kit – ‘I’m Glam, Therefore I Am’ on my eyes, picking out the purple shade to make my blue eyes pop. She simply brushed it over my whole lid, lining through the crease with the slightly darker shade. She explained that it was so easy to create a soft wearable daytime eye using just one shade with a little darkener in the crease and this was literally done in about 30 seconds! I was dying to try the new ‘They’re Real’ mascara so Lisa let me see first hand how fab it was to apply. Blog world and makeup world has been bursting at the seams with nothing but praise for this mascara and it being the sort of brush I need to go for – plastic bristles for short stubby lashes – I couldn’t wait to see the effect it would have on my eyes. Jasmine explained to me that not only were the store we were in sold out of They’re Real but it was the second fastest selling makeup item of all time in the UK when it was released – and if you remember rightly it went out on a flash sale in just four days. Wow. The all time fastest selling product is YSL’s Touche Eclat, and Benefit came second to it in just four days of sale – incredible. And after all that I was expecting great things on my lashes. Was I disappointed? Oh boy, no. I was thrilled! My Mum even went ‘woah!’ as I applied it!
We then simply finished the face with their Silky Finish Lipstick in Jing-a-Ling, which is a rosy pink pearl finish, similar to my lipshade but just different enough to give a little colour and finish. Lisa then finished the look completely with their Brow-zings in the right tone for my eyebrows. Love this! It’s a waxy finish on one side and a powder on the other. Lisa explained the best way to apply this was to put the wax on first but go against the grain of the hair growth, thus not clumping the hair or creating a false looking slicked brow – but more a natural, shaped and defined look. Then set it into place with the powder and voila – perfect brows!
And here’s the finished look and all the products used to create it!
